Known as the bassist for the heavy metal band, Metallica, Jason Newsted is bringing his talent as an artist and musician to the Lighthouse ArtCenter in Tequesta.  When Jason learned that the ArtCenter needed to purchase the School of Art building after 21 years of leasing, he wanted to be involved to make it happen.  As artists and art lovers, Jason and his wife Nicole, sprang into action to support the “Raising The Roof” capital campaign.  Jason will be painting one of his iconic murals on the School of Art building. Nicole and Jason will present a week-long exhibition of their work at the Lighthouse ArtCenter Gallery, and Jason Newsted and the Chophouse Band will offer two benefit concerts at the Gallery.  The Rickie Report shares the dates, details, and some sneak peeks.  Let’s all raise the roof!  Tickets are $10. and limited so make your reservations!

“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!

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

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.

Lucio Chiurulla, Master Italian Sculptor

 

 

The Lighthouse ArtCenter is excited to announce the two-week stone carving workshop by Italian sculptor, Lucio Chiurulla in March 2019. Mr. Chiurulla will be in Tequesta from his native Italy for the two-week workshop.  The workshop is from March 25 – April 5, 2019. This course will focus on marble and stone, two materials that are still carved employing the traditional technique that has been used for many centuries, especially in Italy, since the Greeks and the Romans, and even before them.

 

 

A sculptor of twenty-five year experience with marbles, granites and stones, Mr. Chiurulla studied at the Art School and Accademia of Belle Arti in Perugia (Italy), did his own research on Ancient Roman, Greek and Medieval statues and mosaics acquiring specific marble carving techniques. He currently has his studio near the Trasimeno Lake in the Italian region of Umbria, where he lives and works.

 

 

The workshop program will revolve around a few basic concepts and rules regarding the making of a stone sculpture in the traditional way, using the chisel and the mallet. You will be practicing a technique that has been the same for many centuries – if not millenniums – but that can now be widely reinterpreted and adjusted in the light of modern conception of “art” and the personal feelings of each sculpture.  

 

 

Each student will be provided a carving table, a piece of Italian soft stone, access to electricity and will work under a covered tent. Demonstrations and group/individual instruction will be provided of the step by step process of the stone removal process, through sanding and polishing and making a finished sculpture including a base.create your own

Lunch can be arranged each day. Kits of sculpting tools will also be available for sale in the school store. All levels from beginners to advanced welcome.

In 1943, Frank Lloyd Wright was commissioned by Solomon R. Guggenheim, the great industrialist, to create this upside-down edifice to modern art, and over the following sixteen years the structural design evolved.  After seven hundred sketches and six different sets of architectural drawings, the building’s construction began in 1956, and took three years to complete.  Ultimately it relied on the ingenuity of on-site workers to realize Wright’s intentions through pioneering construction techniques.  Frank Lloyd Wright never had the chance to walk the spiral exhibition space.  By the time the doors opened to the public Wright had been dead for six months.

 

“The Lighthouse ArtCenter is honored to bring this never-before-seen exhibition curated by the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum to our little corner of paradise as we begin envisioning our own expansion program,” said Nancy Politsch, Executive Director.   With the support of Solomon R. Guggenheim’s grandson, one of our winter residents, the exhibition in Tequesta took as long to realize as the three years it took to construct the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York City. 

 

 

“Our area is home to many of America’s philanthropic families, and with this exhibition we hope to attract those who might be interested in investing in the growth of the Lighthouse ArtCenter as we expand to meet the demand for arts and culture in our community,” said Janeen Mason, Curator.

Visitors will experience a dramatic history through these recently discovered black and white photos taken by the General Contractor and his superintendent. In its day, the Museum was considered a Temple to Art and that interpretation has held ever since.  According to Wright, “The mother of art is architecture.  Without an architecture of our own we have no soul of our own civilization.”

 

While half of the 5,000 square feet of exhibition space will be devoted to Building Frank Lloyd Wright’s Guggenheim, the main gallery will feature two of Florida’s celebrated architects, Scott Hughes and Jane Davis Doggett (2017 Florida Artist Hall of Fame). 

 

This installation will show the noted works and architectural models made famous during their internationally successful careers. The exhibition is sure to engage the most discerning guest, from mid-century modernists to those who celebrate science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics. 

 

Beach House 2, Scott Hughes, Hughes Umbanhowar architects

 

 

Scott Hughes (born 1952) is an American architect based in Hobe Sound, Florida. He has been the architect of many high profile residential, commercial and public projects.  Hughes is the principal of HughesUmbanhowar Architects, a firm he co-founded in 2010. He is most known for designing Beach Road 2, which received global media coverage for its architecture.  He began his architectural studies at the University of Virginia, followed by a Master’s of Architecture from the Southern California Institute of Architecture.

 

 

 

Hughes established his own architecture firm in 1981. Early in his career, he worked at Arthur Cotton Moore Associates. In 1995, following a three year collaboration with Philip Johnson, he began an 18 month design thesis at The Southern California Institute of Architecture (SCI-Arc) under the direction of the office of Frank Gehry. After completing his thesis, he became a partner at Jones Partners:  Architecture, an architecture firm based in California.

 

 

 

 

In 2004, Hughes became a trustee of Southern California Institute of Architecture. Since 2005 Scott has been appointed to the Local Planning Agency of the Town of Jupiter Island. He founded HughesUmbanhowar Architects (huum) with John Umbanhowar in 2010. The firm has studios in Venice California and South Florida. The firm’s work has been recognized in a number of exhibitions and publications and has been featured in The Wall Street Journal, The Los Angeles Times, Dwell, Interior Design Magazine, Architectural Record, Architecture, and Progressive Architecture.

 

 

 

The firm’s most well-known project is called Beach Road 2, a two-story Atlantic beach house built between 2004 and 2005 on the foundation of a previous house in the North Beach Road area of Jupiter Island, Florida. The design was reviewed in multiple magazines and media outlets with The National writing that “…nothing takes fuller advantage of its sweeping Atlantic Ocean views than this Jupiter Island home designed by Scott Hughes and John Umbanhowar…” In 2012, it was recognized as one of the 100 most important Florida Buildings of the last 100 years by the State of Florida

 

 

Jane Davis Doggett, Architect, South Beach Road

 

 

 

Jane Davis Doggett (born 1929) is a pioneer designer of wayfinding and graphics systems for airports.  A native of Nashville, TN, she graduated from Sophie Newcomb College (Tulane University, New Orleans, LA) in 1952, and Yale University School of Art and Architecture in 1956 with an MFA in graphics. Her first job was with George Nelson, working on the anthropological part of the permanent exhibit at Colonial Williamsburg, Virginia. She then worked in Europe for the magazine Architectural Record, photographing architects and engineers and their work.

 

 

 

Her first airport design job was for the Memphis airport in 1959. The project’s architect Roy Harrover brought her in to do the graphics. Jane’s first innovation was the development of a standardized font for use throughout the airport. This font became Doggett’s trademarked “Alphabet A” and was used in many subsequent airport projects, since it was very readable over long distances. Additional airport projects included George Bush-Houston, Baltimore-Washington, Newark, Miami, Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood, and Cleveland-Hopkins among others.

 

 

As of 2014, Doggett had designed wayfinding systems for 40 major airport projects, which is said to be “more than any other designer in the world.” Each year, 20 million airplane passengers are guided by her way-finding signage and graphics. 

 

Doggett is credited with four innovations that are now commonly employed in airports and other large public spaces:  Use of color, letter, and symbol to guide visitors through large unfamiliar places;  Building the verbal or symbolic message into the architecture rather than tacking it on as a sign; Creating a visual symbol to brand the airport and represent it as a gateway to the surrounding region.  Designs that begin on highways outside the structure, simplifying and making the wayfinding process safer for drivers or other travelers while also reducing the number of signs needed. Doggett’s system eliminated two-thirds of the highway signs that had originally been proposed for the Tampa airport.

 

 

 

Other notable graphics and design projects that she has worked on include Madison Square Garden, the Philadelphia subway system, the Whitney Museum of American Art, Niagara Falls International Convention Center, Jones Hall for the Performing Arts in Houston, and Fairfax Hospital in Virginia. Doggett’s designs have been awarded the American Institute of Architects’ National Award of Merit, the Progressive Architecture Design Award, American Iron and Steel Institute’s Design in Steel Citation, and two Design Awards co-sponsored by the U.S. Department of Transportation and the National Endowment for the Arts.

 

 

 

 

 

In her fine art work since 2007, Doggett has developed the concept of the Iconochrome, which she has described as “geometric designs in colors expressing philosophically profound messages.” She has also described an Iconochrome as a colorful image or “Icon, an image with meaning, plus chrome, color.” Her work has been exhibited at the Yale University Art Gallery; Tennessee State Museum, Nashville; Armory Art Center, West Palm Beach, FL; Tampa International Airport; Lighthouse Art Center, Tequesta, FL; Northern Trust, North Palm Beach, FL; Maritime and Classic Boat Museum, Jensen Beach, FL; Chapter Two, Corea, ME; College of the Atlantic, Bar Harbor, ME; Littlefield Gallery, Winter Harbor, ME; Elliott Museum, Stuart, FL.; and the Lighthouse ArtCenter, Tequesta, FL.  In 2016, Doggett was inducted into the Florida Artists Hall of Fame.

The Lighthouse ArtCenter presents the 12th Annual D’Art for Art. This fast-paced, exciting evening is the ArtCenter’s signature fundraising event. The Jupiter Community Center Grand Ballroom will be transformed into a gallery like no other, filled with exceptional artwork, jewelry, artisan home décor and more, donated by local and national artists, galleries, collectors and designers.

 

 

“Fruitscape” by Gustavo Castillo

 

 

“We are so thankful for the continued support of the community for the ArtCenter,” said Nancy Politsch, executive director of the ArtCenter. “The event depends on the generous donations from artists and we were fortunate that over 300 works of art were donated.”

 

 

 

Each guest is assigned an artist’s name to form 10 groups. As guests arrive they enjoy cocktails and gourmet hors d’oeuvres while perusing the gallery of over 300 pieces of displayed art and jewelry, noting their favorites on their “Wish List.” There is also a very carefully curated Silent Auction to tempt the most discerning buyer. After enjoying a delicious dinner, it’s time to “dart!” When their artist’s name is randomly drawn, their group “darts” to their chosen piece of art, putting their claim on the work of art that they will be taking home. 

So drink, dine, and when your name is called, “dart” for an outstanding piece of art to take home as the ultimate parting gift!

 

 

Honorary Chairs for the event are Fred and Mary Lynn Putney. Silent Auction Chairs are Pat DeAloia and Amy Crain. “Everyone appreciates what the Lighthouse ArtCenter means to our community,” said Mr. Putney. “The staff and volunteers work hard to provide programs to enrich our lives here in South Florida and we are proud to be a part of this incredible evening.”
