“Art is what you can get away with.”-Warhol

The meteoric rise of Warhol in brief…

Andy Warhol arrived in Manhattan in 1949, carrying a portfolio filled with artwork from his days at Carnegie Institute of Technology and it wasn’t long before a family friend introduced the 21 year old to the art director at Glamour magazine.  This shy kid with patchy skin and a slight build had artwork that was entirely unlike the polished pieces she normally used.  Tina Fredericks gave him his first freelance job creating fresh illustrations to be used in ads for I.Miller shoes.

 

Warhol grew up in WWII Pittsburgh, the steel town that considered itself the backbone of America, and given this opportunity to work with Glamour Magazine, his work ethic went into overdrive.  He bore down on his future with ink and a brush, and painted for eighteen hours a day.

 

Destined to make a name for himself in the city, Andy’s commercial art career flourished when he reliably delivered high-quality designs ahead of schedule. But, it took over ten years for him to cross over from low to high art. It was 1962, when his first gallery show displayed the 32 iconic paintings of Campbell’s Soup.  One for each flavor.  The collection originally sold for a total of $1,000, by 1987 the soup cans claimed a page in history when they were purchased by MOMA for $11.7 million.

 

At the Carnegie he’d been taught to appreciate commercial art as well as fine art.  Although Warhol did not invent the Pop Art movement, he certainly joined it in the late 50s and 60s when he made popular culture the focus in his original paintings.  During a long stretch of his career he used silk screen as an unorthodox medium to create highly controversial, yet wildly collectible prints of Marilyn, Mao, and Elizabeth.  His later provocative pieces like the Death and Disaster pictures, made the art world practically apoplectic, and the fame that resulted, coupled with his childhood obsession for movie stars, gave rise to a celebrity conscious alt-society that filled his inner circle. Luminaries, including politicians, movie stars, and more than one heiress flocked to him for attention.

 

In a recent New York Times article, Alice Cooper claimed that although he knew Warhol from the Manhattan club scene, they weren’t friends.  “Warhol’s group was too weird for me.” Cooper said.

 

In 1967 Warhol barely survived a deliberate gunshot at close range. The wounds affected his mental and physical health until his unexpected death 19 years later. By the time “Warhol” was inscribed on his headstone, at 59 years old, he had become the leader of the Pop Art movement.  His was a household name, and this fragile kid from Pittsburgh had signature work held in significant public and private art collections around the world.

 

WARHOL! WARHOL! WARHOL!  The art exhibition at Lighthouse ArtCenter, shows a wide selection of his evocative works, from those early I. Miller shoe illustrations to the late career experimental Oxidation Paintings made of urine and metallic pigment on canvas.  Visitors can argue over the aesthetic value of his silk screen prints of lips, or they can take a walk on the wild side, back to the Red Hot Chili Peppers as they appear stitched together in six black and white silver gelatin prints created from 1976-86.

Jeanine   Baum

 

 

“Life  Boat 18”  by Jeanine Baum

 

 

Jeanine Baum creates with oils and pastels, focusing on landscapes and cityscapes which she encounters in her everyday life.  She enjoys painting wherever the journey takes her – from South Florida, rural Vermont, New York City, and the estuaries of the southern Jersey Shore.  Her work has exhibited in several galleries in each of those locations.  Jeanine’s paintings have been shown at serval venues: The Art Studio ( New York, NY), Paper Mill Playhouse (Millburn, NJ), Westfield Town Art Show (Westfield, NJ), East Coast Landscape Exhibit (Stone Harbor, NJ), Designer House Showcase (Cape May, NJ) and Sotheby’s Real Estate Collection (Ludlow, VT).  Jeanine’s artworks can be found in numerous private collections.

 

Jeanine tells The Rickie Report, “There is endless learning in painting and I am constantly challenged to try new mediums, new techniques, new ideas.  It is never boring!  Plein-air painting is what I enjoy most…the lighting and environment changes rapidly, so you have to paint fast!”  She also offers commissions.

 

Jeanine has a BS in Medical Technology from University of New Hampshire and an MBA from Seton Hall University.  After retiring from career and raising her family, she pursued her passion for art.  Jeanine has taken classes at the DuCret School of Art, the School of Visual Arts, the Alizarin Crimson Studio, as well as workshops in the US and abroad.  For more information   www.Jeaninebaum.com

 

 

Marie   Cardi   Etherington

 

 

 

“Hiking Out” by Marie Cardi Etherington

 

 

Marie Cardi Etherington draws her inspiration from an early interest in textile, a passion for science and art of gardening, and explorations of exotic locations around the continents.  Her approach is expressionistic and invites the viewer to feel the mood as she, herself experienced it during the painting process. To Marie, “Color is form”.  An early interest in pre-Columbian art lead her to textiles and weaving.  Manipulating threads with a four-harness loom created a pathway for her to express herself with color.  Then she experienced the buttery movement of oil paints and switched from threads and loom to paint and canvas.

 

Marie tells The Rickie Report, “I paint for the moment.  My goal is to bring the viewer in, to look at the everyday world in a new way, because that is how I have painted it. Marie’s artworks can be found in public and private collections around the globe.  Marie studied with the late Terry Oakes Bourret (in CT), Hugh O’Neill ( FL and Ireland), and John Traynor (NH). She holds a degree from University of NH and continued her studies at Cornell University and Albertus Magnus College. Marie has exhibited at numerous juried shows including: The Lyme Art Association, the Clinton Art Society ( where she is an elected member), at Jupiter Medical Center, and Lighthouse ArtCenter.

 

An accredited Federated Garden Club of America flower show master judge, Marie draws a sense of design and space from the world of gardening.  Her designs have been sold in such places as luxury retailer, Henri Bendel in New York. Marie enjoys painting outdoors in New England as well as Jupiter, FL.  For more information: www.cardietherington.com

 

 

Suzanne   Fico

 

Suzanne Fico is from New York, where her interest in capturing the beauty of birds and nature began. She created her first oil painting at the age of 15, comes form a family of artists, and is inspired by her mother.  Suzanne, who has been painting for over a decade, is primarily self taught and she has furthered her studies at the Lighthouse ArtCenter.  Suzanne is currently an art instructor at Morselife and other senior facilities.  Her paintings have been included in juried exhibits at both the Lighthouse ArtCenter and Artist Studio and Gallery of Tequesta.  Suzanne tells The Rickie Report, “My medium of choice is oil and acrylic.  I paint a wide variety of subjects.”  She excels in capturing the beauty of birds, where she has her widest audience appeal.

 

 

 

“Soaring” by Suzanne Fico

 

 

 

Kathy   Kauss

 

“Beware of Falling Coconuts” by Kathy Kauss

 

 

Kathy Kauss is a well known Jupiter artist who paints primarily in oils.  She is a 40 year resident of the area and finds her inspiration in the rich, colorful, tropical landscapes of this unique area.  Kathy is a member of the Jupiter Lighthouse Gallery and her work can be found at her studio at The Artists’ Studio and Gallery of Tequesta.  Kathy tells The Rickie Report, “When I paint, I try to capture a moment in time as well as all the feelings and emotions. I strive to be creative, focusing on the narrative of each painting, while bringing them alive, as I pay attention to the lights and shadows.”

 

 

Jerry  Oliver

 

 

“Coral Cove” Original artwork by Jerry Oliver

 

 

Jerry Oliver was raised on a farm in Kentucky.  After marrying, she moved to southern Illinois where she and her husband, Charles, raised their daughter, Rae.  During those years, Jerry painted in oils and took workshops with several well-known artists.  Her earliest works were influenced by a group of artists from Paducah, KY.  The Paducah Area Painter’s Alliance embraces artists from the mid-west. Jerry’s artwork has been featured in three Solo Exhibits and she was commissioned by the Arts Council of Illinois to create a new work for their college campus. The City of Paducah chose Jerry as one of the main artists to paint a children’s alphabet and art book, “P’ is for Paducah”.

 

Jerry has moved her focus from scenes of the Kentucky Ohio River Valley to South Florida.  She tells The Rickie Report, “Every day is a new adventure as I paint my journey through life. I love my surroundings and gain inspiration from them. I am thankful for her God given talent and firmly believes that everything is possible through him.”  For more information:  http://www.jerryoliverartgallery.com

 

 

 

Joseph  Bennett  Pierre

 

 

“In The Glen” by Joseph Bennett Pierre

 

 

Joseph Bennett Pierre enjoyed drawing since the early age of six.  In 1970, at a low point in his life, he returned to his art. In college, he pursued a BA and MA in Fine Arts at New Jersey City University.  Joseph joined a group of African American artists, who displayed their artworks at the Urban League Gallery in New York City.  He also displayed his art in various libraries and other venues in New Jersey, where he resided.  A long hiatus ensued as Joe’s energies were focused on his career in education. He won outstanding awards in both teaching and administration.  We can see how his philosophy of art is his life mantra: “Art is forever evolving and one always learns something new.”

 

In 1995, Joseph’s interest in art was reignited as he dealt with the stress of care taking his ill mother.  Painting, drawing, and sculpture proved again, to be positive outlets!  In 2004, Joseph moved to North Palm Beach, FL with his wife and mother.  He enrolled in the Armory Art Center and the Lighthouse ArtCenter, taking classes.  From 2005, his work has been exhibited at Lighthouse ArtCenter where “Tears of Haiti” won “Best Of Show”.  His painting, “Sharecropper” received Honorable Mention at a later exhibit there.  His artworks have shown in Sag Harbor, NY; Martha’s Vineyard, MA; and he is currently at the Sarasota Art Center in Sarasota, FL.  His Solo exhibit in 2011 at Art On Park Gallery in Lake Park,FL was a big success.
