Just what I needed two more mystery paintings plus two carved stone head sculptures at 6:30 in the morning. Well, you know what they say about those birds who are early. Turns out that being an antique dealer / art dealer is a great workout too! So after doing a few bicep curls, I needed to take a closer look at a few of the things I bought… Click the pics above to see them on my Instagram!
Maybe it's the old Star Theatre that was in New York City - of course there was more than one so I'll have to dig a little deeper to find out for sure.

The two carved stone heads might be 50 years old or 500 years old. I really can't tell. So I'll venture a guess that the pair date to somewhere in between. Way to narrow it down, huh? You might be wondering why I even bought them in the first place? Of course you are. I'll tell you why. I figured that any artist who commits to carving a piece of stone must really want to say something through their art. It was the material that first drew me to both pieces, then it was the carving. Truth be told, I like the smaller one a bit better, but I just couldn't leave the big guy behind. Anyway, he had some cool remnants of paint near his eyes and I was reminded of the ancient Greek and Egyptian art that was so boldly colored. It's all those clues that are left behind that can help to identify the piece. And speaking of identifying stuff, now we come to the pesky problem of the two paintings. One is signed, the other is not. The one that is signed is the burlesque theatre painting. Maybe it's the old Star Theatre that was in New York City - of course there was more than one so I'll have to dig a little deeper to find out for sure. The abstract painting is easily one of my favorites and in keeping with my love of mysteries it is unsigned. At least I think it is. I'll have to go over everything with a bit more care. Stay tuned next week for pics and more info … Keep in touch with new finds through my social media accounts. And it wouldn't hurt to sign up for my mailing list too. Links for all of those things are all over all of my sites. Seriously. Like all over.

IN THE BEGINNING

It was February of 2002 and I had just moved into a six month sublet in Alphabet City in the East Village. With $600 and no job, I thought I could make it in New York City. So six months went by and after searching the classifieds in the Village Voice I finally found my own apartment in the West Village. And guess what… Click here to find out what Heather Karlie Fine Art is all about.

Modern Look Book started in 2015 as a new approach to vintage - making it modern. I wanted to mix in great modern and contemporary design, art and brands in vintage interiors. I gathered up a core group of friends and colleagues' work to debut it all alongside my vintage and antique finds. It was a huge success. Click here to read more!

Heather Karlie Fine Art started off in a 341 square foot apartment in New York's West Village. Early morning sourcing at the Chelsea flea market yielded armfuls of antique, period and modernist picture frames. A quick email or two, appointments made on the Upper East Side and a subway ride were all part of my routine. I was sourcing for the top galleries in NYC. Click here to read more!
