Welcome Chris Sharp! Little Star Gallery curator beginning this week

As we launch our new web-wide version of Little Star Weekly, we also welcome Chris Sharp as our new curator for Little Star Gallery.  Chris will be selecting an image for each issue of the Weekly for the six next months, following his predecessors painters Mary Weatherford and John Zinsser.  (Our web-based version also makes it easy to see all their work in a big panorama. Mary was our gallerist for most of 2013, and John for last summer. A painting by Mary graces our the free Almanac we posted this week.)

His first selection, “Walnut Hand” (2014), from Becky Beasley’s current show at the Francesca Minini Gallery in Milan, is in our current issue.

Chris co-directs, with the artist Martin Soto Climent, the Mexico City project space, Lulu, and is editor-at-large of Kaleidoscope magazine. He has curated exhibitions at Le Crédac, Ivry; Musée du Château des ducs du Wurtemburg, Montbeliard; The 12th Swiss Sculpture Exhibition in Biel/Bienne, Switzerland; Parc St. Léger, Pougues-les-Eaux; La Fondazione Giuliani, Rome; the Salzburger Kunstverein, Salzburg; Office Baroque gallery, Antwerp; Studio Voltaire, London; Nomas Foundation, Rome; Museum Tinguely, Basel; The Swiss Institute, New York; the Serpentine Gallery;  Gertrude Contemporary, Melbourne; La générale en manufacture, Sèvres; Culturgest, Porto; MoCAD, Detroit; Dunkers Kulterhus, Helsingborg, and others .
