An Interview with Johanna Goldfeld 

JG 481

I design large and small-scale graphics and exhibitions, primarily for arts and culture-related organizations and businesses. I have nearly 10 years of experience in the field and a background in curatorial, public relations, and collections management. I work with a diverse group of institutions including The Forbes Galleries, the American Friends of the Louvre, and the National Archives. Clients appreciate my ability to capture relevant themes and to bring graphics from concept through production with a great level of organization and care.     

Aside from exhibition work, I offer soup to nuts graphics -- from graphic identity to websites for organizations and businesses of all kinds.

You can see my work at www.jgoldfeld-design.com, and read my blog at www.jgoldfeld-design/blog.

 

DG: What attracted you to become a member of Devenish Group?

JGI took a class with Louise on decorative arts in order to round out my understanding of design. It was terrific: we took weekly trips to the Metropolitan Museum as well as to see exclusive antique collections. Aside from Louise’s magnetic and welcoming personality, it’s great to be part of a group with such diverse interests, from jewelry making to interior design to antique appraisal. As a graphic and exhibition designer, Louise’s events offer a wonderful opportunity for collaboration and exchange of ideas.

The New Whitney

 

Devenish Group Visits New York's Famed Art-World Gem!
 
               
 
Fine arts appraiser and cultural enthusiast Louise Devenish was once again a tour-de-force as she accompanied members of her Devenish Group on a special tour of one of New York's most renowned art venues. This was, of course, the newly-consecrated Whitney Museum of American Art. Designed by architect Renzo Piano and situated between the High Line and the Hudson River, the Whitney's newest architectural masterpiece (and there have been four) vastly increases exposure to the museum's famed modern art collection, the finest in 20th and 21st Century works by America's own artists and sculptors.
 
Few know that the museum was the brain child of famed early-20th-century socialite Gertrude Vanderbilt when she opened it in Greenwich Village in 1931...... 

The High Line

 

On the morning of July 10th The Devenish Group embarked on a tour of the world famous ‘High Line’ Park in Manhattans Meat Packing District, With our walking guide Ken and a group of ten members. We started our sunny morning at theGansevoort entrance at the very most southern part of the Park.  The tour was to be focused on the art of the `The High Line’ but almost immediately we realized that this was going to go well beyond our expectations.
