A Change of Taste Makes the New York Times

Our exhibition made the Times!  Check out their article here: http://www.nytimes.com/2011/01/20/garden/20shows.html?scp=2&sq=lowy&st=cse.

But more importantly, make sure you stop by!  It’s not often that we have a frame exhibition, it’s a rare and wonderful show filled with some pretty gorgeous frames.

A Change of Taste: From the Gilded Age to the Craftsman Aesthetic

We’re having a frame exhibition!  I think we’ve had maybe only one of these before, so get on down to Lowy to check it out!

The details:  the exhibition will chronicle the momentous change of taste in American picture frames from the mass-produced ornamentation of the 19th Century to the elegant artistry of the Arts & Crafts movement.  Many of the frames on display are signed and dated by their makers.  The exhibit is made up of frames primarily from Lowy’s extensive collection, as well as extraordinary frames from the collections of Edgar Smith, The Gill & Lagodich Gallery, NY and Gold Leaf Studios, Washington, D.C.

The frames will be on display at Lowy, 223 E. 80th Street between 2nd and 3rd Avenues, NYC from January 24 – April 14, 2011.  The exhibition is open to the public Monday – Friday, 10am – 4pm.

Lowy will feature antique mirrors at the 2010 Winter Antique Show!!

The Lowy Blog

So we decided it was high time for Lowy to join the age of technology, to step up from its old school ways and start anew in the twenty-first century. And what better way to start than with its very own blog! In this blog, we will explore various aspects of the company, using pictures and video to help further understand “how things happen” here at Lowy. Not having an art background, working at Lowy has been an educational process for me, and frankly, I find things here completely interesting and surprising. I hope you’ll be just as intrigued and want to come back again and again to view our further posts, which will be coming on a regular basis.
