“The experience of falling forward and pulling you in is what it’s about.”
Artist Gordon Moore in conversation on TheFinch.Net:
As private chef services grow in many parts of the world, tapping into a luxury long accessible mostly to the elite is becoming easier, and in some cases, more affordable. In the US alone, there are 9,000 personal chefs serving 72,000 customers, a number that is predicted to double in the next five years, according to the American Personal and Private Chef Association.

Many thanks to Jessica Shyba over at Momma’s Gone City for these poignant and honest words.
It doesn’t happen very often, but sometimes I am left alone in our home. My husband just left to take the big kids to school and the little ones to the park. The door shut, and the sounds in this home went from a vibrant, climactic heartbeat to a still, dull flatline.
I absorb it like sunshine on my skin for a moment, and then I begin to clean and prepare to get the red-carpet scroll of things done while I am alone. It’s a race to the finish line when the front door opens and little feet and big personalities race in.
Our home is lived in. I often lament during times like these or before we invite company over that our home looks like Romper Room. The children’s areas are everywhere. There’s a play yard in our living room, soccer nets in our back yard, and children’s chairs at the dining table in place of adult ones. We don’t have much space, and that’s ok. It’s just right for our family right this minute.

Anita Rogers Gallery is pleased to present Virva Hinnemo: Half Planet, an exhibition of new works. The show, the artist’s debut at Anita Rogers Gallery, will feature three large-scale paintings on cardboard highlighting the artist’s bold abstract motifs complemented by a selection of smaller works exemplifying her intuitive and direct approach.
Hinnemo’s large paintings on cardboard are a consolidation of her work of the past decade; she fashioned the larger scale of these works by grasping and internalizing a language and then more recently by using her entire body to expand her marks and gestures. Her paintings touch upon some of the most fundamental properties of abstract painting: improvised, grand, uncluttered, and firmly planted in reality. She paints with immediacy and directness but her thick black marks are pinned down by an attentive and purposeful energy. Her smaller works offer a different exploration: they can be quirky, quick, awkward, amusing and almost entirely elusive. They read like sublimated remains that defy their nearly discarded “look”. We are left experiencing a condensation of means and an assertion of essentials.
Born in 1976 in Helsinki, Finland, Hinnemo spent time growing up between Sweden, Finland and Russia. She received her BFA in painting from Parsons School of Design in 2000. Hinnemo has exhibited in New York, Miami, Boston, Provincetown and Stockholm. Her paintings have been reviewed by major publications, including The New York Times, Time Out New York, The New Yorker, and The New York Sun. She currently lives and works in Springs, NY.

Having a strong support system is crucial for families bringing new babies home. That system can look different for every family, but the biggest help is man-power. Whether that means extended family coming to help, a partner that can take time off work, or hiring domestic staff, having an extra pair of hands can be essential for new moms.
