Juneteenth 150th Anniversary Limited Edition Print

June 14th, 2015 - Denver, CO

Juneteenth 150th Anniversary Limited Edition Print

Artist Dwayne Glapion's painting titled "The Shepherd" was chosen for the African American Voice Newspaper 2015 limited edition Juneteenth art print. Juneteenth, also known as Juneteenth Independence Day, Freedom Day, or Emancipation Day, is a holiday in the United States that commemorates the announcement of the abolition of slavery in the U.S. state of Texas in June 1865, and more generally the emancipation of African-American slaves throughout the Confederate South. Celebrated on June 19, the term is a portmanteau of June and nineteenth, and is recognized as a state holiday or special day of observance in most states. 2015 marks the 150th Anniversary of the Celebration.

The Limited Edition Posters were sponsored by the African American Voice Newspaper and will be available at the Juneteenth Caribbean Heritage Festival held in Colorado Springs. Festival Events run from June 9 - June 21. There are only 150 prints available.

Symphony In Blue

Symphony In Blue

Symphony in Blue

Initially I began editing some proofs of my last screen prints

that had been littering my studio for some time. My only

intention was to make some original publicity cards and clear

away the unwanted proofs. I soon became very excited at

what started to emerge. Striking abstract images began to

appear, being instantly created with the cut of a knife. It

immediately struck me that more could be made of this process

as I desperately searched for more hidden images.

After some experimentation and much deliberation I started to

develop a strict method of working, selecting and cropping

images within a predetermined area of 6" x 4".

At times this became frustrating. Instead of applying a medium

to a surface and building up an image, I was subtracting from

one work to make another. It is direct and cannot be altered.

Around this time I had also been listening to a lot...

Exhibition HUMANITY Syrlin Kunstverein e.V. International Stuttgart from 03.18.2015 - 04.12.2015

A critical view on society.

From Tuesday on the exhibition ‘humanity’ shows the artworks of two society-critical artists in the Waas’sche Fabrik. Gabriele Frey and […] take up controversial, partially tabued topics and present those as unvarnished as they are in reality. […]

Art is not decorative. Art is independent and time-critical. Three artists of the Stuttgart Syrlin-Kunstverein intensely concerned themselves with the human being and the diversity and adversity of human action. The result is a meaningful exhibition between social criticism and joy of life, enriched with vivid colourfulness. […]

Gabriele Frey brings her subtle observations of thoughtlessness, extreme behavior and ambitious vanities on canvas from a woman’s perspective. The pictorial themes appear in front of her inner eye or in dreams. Generation gaps or child abuse, painting means...

Watermedia exhibit - May 29 - July 11, 2015

at the Jaques Art Center, 121 2nd Street, Aitkin, MN 56431 --- Open Tuesday - Saturday 11 am - 4 pm

This exhibit is by three artists who love to paint the nuances and spirit of the Minnesota's landscapes, flowers and animals.

Exposicion De Martyn Robinson

Exposicion De Martyn Robinson

En una sencilla y grata presentación, quedó inaugurada anoche la muestra de pinturas Martyn Robinson, un artista plástico nacido en Inglaterra que, tras recorrer distintos lugares del mundo, lleva un par de años radicado en nuestra ciudad.

La colección ya puede ser visitada en las instalaciones del Colegio de Arquitectos, ubicadas en 9 de julio 235. En algunos casos paisajes urbanos, en otros un fuerte protagonismo del cuerpo de la mujer, pero en todos los casos obras con una marcada intensidad cromática.

Martyn Robinson comentaba en relación a su obra que "me gusta pintar en acrílico ya que se destaca en la rapidez de su secado, en los colores y en la calidad. También me gusta dibujar en tinta, lápiz y acuarela. Mis temas tienden a ser tomados de lo que pasa a mí alrededor en el momento, ya sea física o emocionalmente. Disfruto experimentar nuevas ideas de expresión sobre lienzo o papel y ocasionalmente en algún nuevo medio. Me gusta usar colores brillantes e...

Studio Art Direct Completes Hotel Eastlund Art Collection And Gives Advice To Artist On How To Work With Consultants

Studio Art Direct Completes Hotel Eastlund Art Collection And Gives Advice To Artist On How To Work With Consultants

Hotel art consultants, Studio Art Direct, recently completed the permanent art collection for Hotel Eastlund in Portland, Oregon. The collection features stunning custom commissioned art in architecture installations on glass in the lobby.

Janelle Baglien, lead art consultant, commissioned Australian artist Loui Jover to create a painting which included elements, sayings and drawings of Portland, Oregon. The curve of women and words are an over arching theme for the project, so the soft face of an alluring woman was the featured element. Baglien worked with Jover by email and phone. She provided him with images and thoughts for the painting as well as the color palette for the lobby and finish size requirements. Jover sent Baglien thumbnail images as the commission progressed. "Loui Jover knocked it out of the park," says Baglien. "He listened to direction, provided ideas, and finished the commission on time, and on budget."

Baglien also tracked down the famous...
