This Chelsea Art Gallery is Owned by a Former Time Inc. CEO

Ann S. Moore, who retired from her position as CEO and chairwoman of Time Inc. in 2011, is now just a few days away from opening The Curator Gallery. The 1,600-square-foot Chelsea space debuts March 7 and aims to showcase emerging painters, photographers and sculptors. She has also added an interesting general stipulation: no work shown will be priced above $10,000.

CuratorGalleryLogoThe first exhibit, “Second Nature,” has been curated by Bowdoin College professor Mark Wethli and showcases the work of six abstract painters from Maine. From the gallery prospectus:

While the state of Maine has a long-standing reputation as a destination for landscape painters, this exhibition is, as Wethli puts it, about Maine’s ‘second nature’ – abstract artists whose work is inspired by natural processes rather than outward appearances.” John Bisbee and Clint Fulkerson, for example, find inspiration for their work in the structure of natural processes. Meghan Brady and Andrea Sulzer use the chaotic energy of the natural world as a starting point for their artistic processes. Cassie Jones and Joe Kievitt find new ways to translate existing cultural representations of nature.

Time Inc. to Layoff 600

29mag-inline3-190.jpgWe told you last week about major layoffs at Time Inc.’s Southern Progress Magazines and it looks like they may have been an early warning sign for larger cuts to follow. The NYT is reporting that Time Inc. has plans to cut 6% of its workforce, the equivalent of 600 positions and “revamp the organization in a way that could radically alter the culture at the company.” Apparently none of the titles are being cut, however an already planned overhaul by Ann S. Moore, Time Inc.’s chairman and chief executive had to be sped up to cope with the fast-changing media environment. Says Moore:

This is a challenge, unlike any we’ve seen before…And after much careful study and consultation with many of you who run our businesses, I have concluded that it is no longer possible to operate our company with the same decentralized management structure that served us so well during our many years of sustained growth.

As Gawker’s Ryan Tate points out perhaps this shouldn’t come as such a shock considering the big cuts the magazine has had to make in the last few years, though in the current media environment it’s hard not to perceive it as the latest, loudest death knell to the end of print magazines. Further details regarding the changes and reorganization to come, after the jump.
