  • Robert Dash: Printmaker

  • New Ways to Give

    We’ve grown up! The IRS has determined that we are now a public charity! Although we’ve been a 501(c)3 for twenty-five years, this new status allows us to receive gifts from grant-giving foundations that can only give to public charities, as well as a .05% every time you shop on Amazon Smile (of course we prefer you shop local) and select Madoo Conservancy as your charity of choice. Thank you for the many ways you give to Madoo!

  • Madoo and You Table in garden set with dinner ware

    Create the private event of your dreams for your close family and friends, and enjoy the magical gardens of Madoo all to yourselves. Party sizes range from 2 to 25 people. Email info@madoo for rates and more information.

  • Digitizing!

    We’ve begun the first phase of digitizing the Robert Dash archives as Madoo has been accepted into the Digitizing Local History Sources Project with LIU Post’s Palmer School of Library and Information Science, funded by the Robert David Lion Gardiner Foundation. This important step in preserving Dash’s illustrated journals, early exhibition announcements, photographs, and studio ephemera, will allow for future generations to view and reference Madoo’s archives.

  • THEY WILL BE MISSED

    We are deeply saddened to announce the passing of two dear Madoo colleagues and friends.

     

    Susan Fisher Haag, our graphic designer, died in mid-April from ovarian cancer after a five and half year battle with the disease. Susan received a bachelor of fine arts degree in painting and printmaking from Parsons School of Design/The New School, and a master of fine arts in painting from Yale University. She was the owner/founder of Juice Design, a graphic design firm that created the current Madoo visual identity. Susan also served on the board of Wellness in the Schools. She is survived by her husband Larry Haag of Sag Harbor, NY. Read her obituary here.

     

    Gerard Widdershoven passed away on June 14th. Gerard joined the board of the Madoo Conservancy five years ago and served as its Treasurer for the past two and half years. Prior to his retirement in 2010 he was the founder of the influential Maison Gerard, the Manhattan-based Art Deco antiques gallery. Maison Gerard was one of the first galleries to highlight the works of Rene Buthaud, Jean-Michel Frank, Emile-Jacques Ruhlmann, Jacques Adnet, Line Vautrin and Jules Bouy—long before many of these names were recognized for their significant contributions to design. Gerard is survived by his husband Nicholas Howey of Bridgehampton. Read his obituary here.

     

    Their love and enthusiasm for Madoo will be greatly missed.
