The Digital Age Rocks!

It’s just that simple.  Think about what you were doing 10/20/30 years ago (if you are old like me you can go back longer).  Now, think about how things get done today.  The efficiency and speed at which we move is staggering.  The tools at our disposal are unbelievable. When I was a kid, I…

Lifelong Creative Learning

I am not sure what motivates everyone but I can tell you that most people are motivated to get smarter.  They just don’t carve out the time and they can’t always conceptualize the benefits. Think about where we have come in such a short period of time.  Remember when the fax machine changed our lives…now…

Winter Blues

I have a love / hate relationship with winter.  On one hand, I love to ski, love to watch football, love to make a fire and chill at home, love to eat some comfort food and really love the change of seasons that winter puts the icing on (nice pun huh?).  But, when I really…

WORD

Things are starting to get fun.  Don’t get me wrong, over the last few months, as with any new business, there have been moments where I have scratched my head.  But, as I move into the New Year, it is amazing how many people have acknowledged how One River is helping to change the cultural…

New Year = New Inspiration

It’s so simple for me to talk about new inspiration.  I really believe in the power of reinventing yourself and fortunately I have had the ability to put my belief to work.   I don’t mean you need to do something radical like start a new art school or gallery.  Take a little bite out of…

Conundrum

I can’t seem to shake what occurred last week and I couldn’t write today without reflecting a bit.  Tragedy comes in many colors but rarely have we seen a shade so horrific.  Every day I get older I seem to be more grateful for the basic beauty of life and at the same time, I…

Art Fairs. It’s All About The Art

Art Fairs. It’s about the art.  Maybe I’m a purist and perhaps sometimes a little idealistic.  If you know anything about Art Basel week in Miami, most of what people talk about is the partying, the beautiful people, the great weather and a whole lot of fun.  But, after spending four days looking at hundreds,…

The Art Of A Home

Art exhibits are not all made equal.  Sounds simple, right?  Picasso at the Met is very different than going to a little gallery in Cape Cod. Last week we hosted an amazing fundraiser that I was so proud to have been part of.  The United Way of Bergen County is in the middle of a…

Gratitude

Gratitude.  Thanksgiving.  They obviously go together and I want to start this by thanking our new community of friends and advocates for supporting us and helping us get the word out.  I also want to wish all of you a wonderful Thanksgiving. Every year that ticks by I try harder and harder to consciously think…

Art Inspired

I’m art inspired.  Don’t know how I got there but I look at art now and hear music.  When I was younger like a lot of us I would obsessively listen to music for hours on end.  What I didn’t know is that what seemed so basic…this love for sound…was something that was really rooted…
