“This is such a fantastic opportunity for the ArtCenter,” said executive director Nancy Politsch. “We are so grateful that Jason and Nicole have embraced the ArtCenter and the Tequesta art community, and are giving so generously of their time and talents to make our School of Art building purchase a reality. We invite the public to stop by the school in March to see Jason’s fabulous mural. ”

 

 

 

Jason Newsted’s “ROCKSTAR”, 2006. Acrylic & ink on canvas. 

 

 

 

In 2004, Newsted suffered a shoulder injury after trying to catch a falling bass amp head during a recording session. After surgery he turned to painting during his lengthy recovery period as a way to get “what was inside, out.” Painting continued to be a passion after his recovery and he had his first art gallery show opening on May 5, 2010 in San Francisco, California.

 

 

 

After a lifetime of playing loud and earth shaking music, Jason has shifted to the other end of the spectrum, rediscovering himself and playing acoustic guitar with the Chophouse Band. The band’s repertoire includes folk cover songs from legendary acts of the likes of Johnny Cash, George Jones, Tom Waits, Neil Young, Bob Dylan, and Jason Isbell.

 

 

Artist, Nicole Newsted

 

 

Nicole Newsted has been pursuing an artistic life since growing up in a family of artists in upstate New York. Currently her practice includes painting, collage and wearable art. Nicole went on to study painting on scholarship to Arizona State University and her paintings are in collections across Europe, the Middle East, Asia and America.

 

 

 

“My work is an ongoing survey of the objects around me, both past and present. I am drawn to the cute, kitschy and the saccharine,” states Nicole. “The paintings depict maximalism in a minimalist setting. My work is pure escapism in thought and time. They’re meditations on objects made of plastic and polyester, and the artificial flavorings that in youth, incited feelings of pure joy.”

 

 

“Nicole and I love our neighborhood, we love being a part of a community like the one we have here in paradise,” said Jason. “Cherishing and preserving the local music and arts of past, present & future generations is vital for all of us…everywhere!

Third Thursday, February 21, At Lighthouse ArtCenter Features Lecture By J. Marshall Adams And Focuses On The Life And Achievements Of A.E.Backus

The Lighthouse ArtCenter announces plans for an informative talk about the artist A.E.”Bean” Backus by J.Marshall Adams, the Executive Director of the A.E.Backus Museum & Gallery. The public is welcome to hear the lecture during the monthly 3rd Thursday reception on February 21.  Mr. Backus has a fascinating place in the history of Florida art, as the preeminent landscape painter and the teacher of Alfred Hair, one of the original Florida Highwaymen, a group of mostly self-taught artists who painted Florida landscapes starting in the 1940’s. Don’t miss the Exhibit, “Building Frank Lloyd Wright’s Guggenheim” available now through March 2.

A.E. “Bean” Backus painting en plein air, back country, St. Lucie County (late 1940s)

 

 

 

 

 

 

Mr. Marshall will present “Part Cracker, Part Monet: A.E. Backus.” As Florida’s preeminent landscape painter, A.E. “Bean” Backus (1906-1990), brought a natural eye and self-trained mastery to present the idyllic, rugged beauty of the glades, beaches, rivers, savannas, and back country of his home state with a singular devotion and unique sense of place. Mr. Marshall invites you to discover the compelling story of this artist’s creative practice and his altruistic spirit that continues to inspire today.

 

 

 

A.E. Backus (American, 1906-1990). Spanish Bayonets on the Indian River, c. 1960. Oil on canvas, 23 x 35 inches. Collection of the A.E. Backus Museum & Gallery, 2008.B.2.OC.2.

 

 

With a career spanning more than 70 years, Backus was the first Florida-born artist to build his professional renown by painting the landscape and scenes from daily life of his native state. He was fortunate to have known great success during his lifetime, with paintings hanging in the businesses and the private collections of many of Florida’s most prominent citizens. A renowned humanitarian who abhorred the racist attitudes and segregation that engulfed the region, Backus taught and mentored the group of entrepreneurial African American artists who became known as the Florida Highwaymen. Their inspiring story is part of the A.E. Backus legacy.

 

 

 

A.E. Backus (American, 1906-1990). Morning Light – Everglades, c. 1970. Oil on canvas, 24 x 30 inches. Collection of the A.E. Backus Museum & Gallery, 2009.B.1.OC.1.

 

 

 

J. Marshall Adams is the Executive Director of the A.E. Backus Museum & Gallery in Historic Downtown Fort Pierce, Florida. Adams brings more than 20 years of museum experience to his role, and has been recognized statewide and nationally for his work. He was previously the Director of Education at the Vero Beach Museum of Art, the Director of Education & Exhibitions at the Museum of Contemporary Art Jacksonville, and the Head of School Programs at the High Museum of Art in Atlanta. He has a Master’s in Museum Education from Bank Street College of Education in New York, and a Bachelor’s in Studio Art from Tulane University in New Orleans. The Backus Museum is a vital part of the cultural life of its community, and is well-regarded beyond for championing the history and legacy of A.E. Backus as one of the region’s most renowned artists, and as a humanitarian who felt that art was for everyone.

 

 

 

If your interest is piqued about the Highwaymen artists, the A.E. Backus Museum & Gallery presents the new exhibition Artists of Color: Place, Race, and Vision of the Florida Highwaymen, featuring 50 works by original Highwaymen Harold Newton, Alfred Hair, Roy McLendon, Sam Newton, Willie Daniels, Mary Ann Carroll, Livingston Roberts, and Johnny Daniels. The exhibition demonstrates in powerful images how the Highwaymen’s search for economic independence, creative freedom, and a distinctive vision blended together in a way that transformed how we see the landscapes before us. The exhibition features works from private collections, many never exhibited before, and is curated by Roger Lightle. Artists of Color: Place, Race, and Vision of the Florida Highwaymen is on view through March 3, 2019.

 

 

 

About the A.E. Backus Museum & Gallery

With a recently added, multi-million dollar expansion, the A.E. Backus Museum & Gallery houses the nation’s largest public presentation of artwork by Florida’s preeminent painter, A.E. “Bean” Backus (1906-1990), and is home to the state’s only permanent multimedia exhibition on the Florida Highwaymen. In addition to preserving and perpetuating the artistic and humanitarian legacy of Backus, the Museum organizes and hosts changing exhibitions from artists of national and international acclaim. It was voted “Best Museum 2018” in Indian River Magazine’s annual “Best of the Treasure Coast,” where it was described as “a fabulous place to visit.” The 58th Season of exhibitions, programs, and events continues through June.

Harriet Silverstein Combines Numerous Artistic Traditions Ranging From Ancient Egyptian To Impressionism, Abstract, Drawing And More. See Her SOLO Exhibit And Group Exhibits In The Ft. Lauderdale Area

Harriet Silverstein will be featured in a SOLO Exhibit, “Collages and Small Works” at ArtServe in Ft. Lauderdale, with an Opening Reception on February 7, coinciding with the opening of the “artBRAVO!” exhibition at ArtServe.  A prolific award-winning artist, her work can be seen in four other venues in Southeast Florida, including her own studio gallery located in Fat Village.  The Rickie Report shares the details of each event and some sneak peeks of Harriet’s artistry.  Get out your calendars and make a plan to stop by!

 

 

H A R R I E T      S I L V E R S T E I N

Paintings,  Drawings,  and Prints

One  Artist   –   Five  Exhibits

 

 

 

Harriet Silverstein is a widely exhibited visual artist, maintaining her studio at Fat Village in Fort Lauderdale. Born in Syosset, New York, she received her B.A. from Brown University and her M.A. in Fine Arts from the State University of New York at Albany with honors. After finishing graduate studies in art, she was awarded the State University of New York International Fellowship to France, where she enrolled in the Academie Des Beaux Arts in Strasbourg.

 

 

Her artwork provides the viewer with a bold, graphic element from a distance but, up close they are rewarded with rich, organic details, intricate textures and complex contrasts. Harriet’s artistic goal is to produce a world that is compelling for its own visual uniqueness and a celebration of visual experience. Her intention is to create art that the viewer can enjoy repeatedly, so that the color relationships, forms, textures and visual elements fully reveal themselves with multiple viewings.

“Banyan Tree #4” by Harriet Silverstein

 

Harriet tells The Rickie Report, “I am inspired by natural color and light in the ways they define physical atmosphere, visual form and texture. The distinctly brilliant sunlight of South Florida, with its illuminating brightness and deep, dark lushness in its shadows, is a consistent point of creative departure and artistic connection. I love building pictorial layers using drawing, painting and collage, scraping back, then adding more, pooling juicy paints or building densely textured multi-colored layers of two-dimensional surfaces”.

“On The Street” by lou anne colodny

 

 

 

 

lou anne colodny investigates contemporary issues concerning man/woman as he/she is ruffled by nature and society. Borrowing imagery from the internet, newspapers and magazines, she collages, manipulates materials, and uses her imagination to create her videos and drawings. In many of her works, she assumes faux personalities and thereby explores differing professions, values and actions that individuals pursue in their life journeys. She is fascinated by the psychology of life and how people react to it.
