WORK OF THE WEEK is Bhupen Khakhar's You Can’t Please All. Khakhar revealed that the naked male figure was himself and that this piece represented his coming-out as a gay man. The title suggests the difficulties Khakhar faced at the time and a sense of defiance in the face of this. https://goo.gl/iZ8ckW Bhupen Khakhar, You Can’t Please All 1981, Tate collection.

Walther designed this bolt-action rifle to meet existing requirements at the time of its production.

In 1972, Stephen Shore hit the road. Using a Rollei 35mm camera equipped with a flash mounted beneath it, he explored and captured snapshots of everyday life in the United States. Our display of his work from this time echoes the original 1972 exhibition at Light Gallery in New York, titled “American Surfaces.” Small Kodacolor prints were hung unframed, attached directly to the wall in a grid of three rows. Shore continued the series for over a year and half, expanding it to include more locations, while remaining true to his influences at the time—repetitive patterns, amateur photography, and a fascination with pop culture. ...

"There are no rules. Let the picture lead you where it must go." Helen Frankenthaler poured thinned pigment directly on an unprimed canvas. This style characterized the artist's work and is reminiscent of watercolor painting. Frankenthaler's arrangement of colors and shapes often evoke the natural environment, and she frequently refers to her works as landscapes. In each work of art, she creates a unique visual space, atmosphere, and mood.
