ADG Exhibit at JNA Gallery / Bergamot Station

Below are Install and opening night photos with a custom made Katana inspired by Miyamoto Musashi at the center of the wall Installation.

Miyamoto Musashi was a master Japanese swordsman and philosopher. He was also an accomplished artist, sculptor and calligrapher. He emphasized in his writings the importance of study in multiple disciplines.

I placed the katana at the center of this installation as an homage to him and to reflect the shared belief in the value of training in multiple disciplines (as an artist) to further develop the self.

Exhibit-Joan-Joan-Joan-Portraits-of-Joan-Quinn-at-JWA-Airport

 

John Wayne Airport* presents  Joan, Joan, Joan! One Subject, Many Artists. Curated by Amanda Quinn Olivar & Cheryl Bookout, this selection of portraits from the Quinn family collection is comprised of nearly 200 artists’ interpretations of the same subject – their friend and patroness of the arts Joan Quinn. These works provide a link to the vibrant art scene in Los Angeles and around  the world from the 1960s through  today, giving a glimpse into

friendships established and maintained over the years. Joan’s wide-ranging activities in the arts helped generate a continuum  of portraits   by many artists, some of whom had never made one before.  This exhibit offers a rare opportunity to see into the minds of artists through their diverse styles, and how they approach one subject over the course ofmore than 50 years.  This body of work is a comprehensive study in portraiture.

Artists included are Peter Alexander, Gregory Beylerian, Silvina Der-Meguerditchian, Shepard Fairey,

Claire Falkenstein, Frank Gehry, Yolanda Gonzalez, Joe Goode, Chaz Guest, David Hockney, Henry

Hopkins, George Hurrell, Antonio Lopez, Gilbert Lujan Magu, Robert Mapplethorpe, Astrid Preston, Alexis Smith,

Beatrice Wood & Zandra Rhodes and Ed Ruscha.

Gaza Rebirth, Group Exhibit for Peace

GAZAREBIRTH

ARTISTS FROM AROUND THE WORLD JOIN FOR PEACE AND RAISE FUNDS FOR GAZA’S CHILDREN

A collaborative exhibition featuring the work of 50 artists is underway in the Hudson Valley. The exhibit, titled “Gaza Rebirth: Artists in Solidarity,” seeks to raise awareness of Gaza’s plight as well as Israelis’ and Palestinians’ struggle to foster mutual understanding and peaceful coexistence. Fifty percent of all sales will be donated to the children of Gaza.
“Gaza Rebirth” will kick off with a public celebration on June 21 (summer solstice) at the Baraka complex in Stanfordville, NY (12-7) and thereafter will remain open to the public every weekend through August 21.
Maxwell Kofi Donkor, international and national known master drummer from Ghana will perform live at the opening celebration. Kofi leads drum circles for children, has been very influential in the arts-in-education program in schools and communities in the Tri-State region and has played with world-renowned drummers, like Baba Olatunje and Mickey Hart. He believes in the use of cultural arts as a conduit in community building, teamwork, leadership, diversity and self-esteem.
“Gaza Rebirth” organized and curated by Kardash Onnig, a Hudson Valley-based sculptor, activist, author, inventor, and toymaker is based on the concept of what he calls “symbiotic synthesis,” which has deep roots in Kardash’s Armenian background. For example, in the 4thcentury, following a millennium of conflict between the Armenians and the Parthians, a common alphabet was invented to facilitate communication between the two nations which was the first major step towards peace.

gaza_stripped_by_gregory_beylerian

This intention for this artwork was to express a visual merging of two flags, two identities, two peoples hearts into one. Using the topographical landscape as an underlying component to the trauma and the solution. Using Onnig’s Torso as the symbolic union via the maternal essence of the universal mother. Gaza Stripped is the path to truth, in saying, when a person is stripped of their clothes, their cultural identity, we can begin to see the common component, The humanity of both people’s – In us all…

Have a Seat!
The Beylerian Collection of
Small Chairs

June 28 – October 28, 2007

Pretenders and Promoters: Although many believe that early small chairs were salesman’s samples and the work of apprentices, documentation supporting this notion is minimal. The contemporary furniture industry, however, has created its own version of sample chairs in the form of advertising or promotional miniatures, such as the “Patio Chaise Lounge,” that faithfully reproduce (and remind us of) their products.

Americana: Many small chairs date back to the 19th century when models were required with every submission to the U.S Patent office.  The “Adirondack Chair” is based on a style popular in the late nineteenth century.

Outdoor, Twigs and Logs: At the turn of the twentieth century, paralleling the Arts and Crafts movement was a back-to-nature movement which included “rustic” furniture made out of unfinished branches and logs. The miniature versions are, of course, made out of twigs.

Transformed Chairs: Humble scraps such as the wires from champagne corks, cigarette wrappers, tin cans and clothespins are the materials of traditional folk art chairs. More recent variations suggest that small chairs can be made of just about anything. The possibilities range from the durable – stones, circuit boards, scouring pads, bottle caps – to the most ephemeral, wheat straw.  Those made of cutlery, a bagel, even a hotdog and its bun are witty metaphors of function. Recycling and the use of “green” materials are frequently found in these transformations.

Flights of Fantasy: Artist and Designer Chairs:  Chairs are rich in cultural and aesthetic connotations, and, as such, appeal to artists who design and make seats of major and minor proportions. At the small scale, artists explore a wide range of meanings and symbols linked to the concept of the chair.

Small Comforts: In the late 17th century, furniture design changed dramatically with the growing use of fabric and upholstery.  Elegantly carved and painted chairs had always been signs for status and wealth; now, late in the history of furniture, comfort was added to the expectations of the chair. By the next century, easy chairs, padded and capacious were part of every well-appointed drawing room. The invention of the coiled metal spring in the 19th century further enhanced the comfort level.  The modernist “Lounge Chair” and the “Art Deco Chair” demonstrate the definition of comfort for two different historical styles.

Basic and Classic: Miniature versions of classic furniture styles are prized by collectors. It is possible to document the historical evolution of the chair at this convenient scale.  The explosion of design variations in the 20th century added greatly to the number of models to be acquired.  Examples in the exhibition range from a 17th century carved chair to 20th century icons by Josef Hoffmann, Gerrit Rietveld, Charles Rennie Mackintosh.

Seats of Power: The history of the chair – an elevated seat equipped with back and arms – cannot be separated from the history of power and status.  Thrones for rulers are known as early as the Babylonian period but the Egyptians may have made some the first true chairs. These early forms were exclusive, used by a select few, lifting a chosen one above the masses gathered below.  Rich ornamentation, fine woods and dramatic scale reinforced the status of gods and kings alike. A glittering example is King Tut’s throne, made as a promotional chair for the 1978 exhibition.

The Coffin Show: Between Life and Death

the_coffin_show

coffin_installed_by_gregory_beylerian

INFO:

  • Coffin is 36″ tall and constructed from spruce, acrylic, electronic computer boards, paint brushes and other artists mediums. The cerebral component is a poem hanging from the wall that has accompanying images depicting a woman bringing herself to orgasm. As the French like to call it, “A little death”. Thus the name of the piece…

Black Maria Gallery Presents
“The Coffin Show: Between Life and Death”

Los Angeles – Black Maria Gallery announced the opening of a new exhibition, entitled “The Coffin Show: Between Life and Death” featuring the works of 16 Los Angeles-area artists. The exhibition will open on October 8 at 7:00pm and will remain open until Wednesday, November 2.

According to gallery owner Zara Zeitountsian, each of the participating artists was given an actual coffin and asked to transform it into a work of art and a personal statement.

“Given the diverse stylistic and cultural backgrounds of the artists, their individual points of view, I think we’ll have a quite a collection of creative approaches to the theme,” said Zeitountsian. “In terms of pure functionality, a coffin is certainly one of the most somber, unsightly objects imaginable, meant to be forever buried or tucked away following a funeral service. But redefine it as a work of art, and it springs to life in all sorts of unexpected ways.”

Sam Saghatelian (Saga), curator of Black Maria Gallery, continued: “In Western culture and many other cultures around the world, the funeral, and more specifically the coffin, can be viewed as a halfway point between the enigma of life and the mystery of death. As a receptacle for the dead, a coffin is perhaps the only concrete, tactile punctuation mark between the two realms. The works shown in our exhibition represent the artists’ personal take on death – and, as importantly, life – through the prism of the funerary object.”

Participants of “The Coffin Show” comprise both established and emerging local artists, who have used various media for their exhibited works.

Black Maria Gallery also announced that a portion of the proceeds from the exhibition will be donated to the “Caravan of Hope” project, launched by KPFK and Veterans for Peace Chapter 110 Orange County, CA for victims of the recent hurricane that devastated The Gulf Coast.

“The Coffin Show” will kick off on Saturday, October 8, at 7 PM, and will remain open until Wednesday, November 2.
Black Maria is located at 3137 Glendale Boulevard in Los Angeles. Gallery hours are Tuesday through Saturday 12 to 6 PM. For more information, call 818.613.9090.
