Trish Stephens tells The Rickie Report, “The Casuarina tree’s seeds were first brought to Florida in 1898 from France. Later seeds came from Ceylon, Manila and Hawaii.  Today, the Casuarina tree, known as the Australian Pine, is so prevalent in Lantana, our founding members thought it fitting to give the name to our Woman’s Club.  The species is so firmly a part of Florida that we forget that it is, like most of us, from elsewhere. Diversity is our strength and the Casuarina reminds us that as people in our communities we come from many different places and various backgrounds. However, like the branches of the tree, we can make the difference when serving a common cause”.

The Lighthouse ArtCenter Museum is proud to present selections from The Manoogian Collection: Two Centuries of American Art, November 19, 2015 through March 5, 2016. It is generously underwritten by Detroit industrialist, Richard Manoogian and his wife Jane. The Manoogian exhibition will fill LAC’s galleries with priceless, diverse collection of works from 1856 – 1999.

 

 

LAC-Manoogian-Brega, Doug-Ferry Watch

“Ferry Watch” by Doug Brega

 

 

 

The Manoogian Collection is one of the most significant private collections of American art compiled during the 20th century. A number of paintings in the collection have been exhibited at the White House, National Gallery of Art, Metropolitan Museum of Art and Detroit Institute of Arts. The National Gallery considers the collection to be “a comprehensive survey of American painting, a remarkable one in capsule form.”

 

 

 

 

LAC-Manoogian-Maier_29_Duesenberg

“1929 Duesenberg” by Peter Maier

 

 

 

When Richard Manoogian was asked why he collects American Art, “Collecting American paintings is important to me,” he said. “Those from an ethnic background like mine often have a great appreciation for America because of the opportunity this country has created for their families. The result is a deep love for one’s country and a particular appreciation for the period in which the country grew and expanded.”

 

 

Although the Manoogians lead a very private life, they enjoy sharing their collection. “To some extent my collecting has been driven by wanting to share my paintings with others as a way of giving something back to the country that has been so good to our family,” Mr. Manoogian said.  The exhibition includes works that range from mid-19th century to 1999, including paintings of renowned artists, such as Frederick Frieseke, William Merritt Chase, Childe Hassam and Andrew Wyeth.

“As these works are in a private collection, the Manoogian Collection exhibition presents an opportunity for our community to view extraordinary art by American artists that cannot be seen often,” said Katie Deits, the executive director of the Lighthouse ArtCenter. “Museum visitors can browse the exhibition or attend docent- led tours. Our lecture series will feature Joan Lipton speaking about William Merritt Chase on December 17 and Anne Palumbo, Ph.D., discusses the Statue of Liberty as an American Icon on January 21. There will be special tours and evenings for private clubs and organizations, as well as educational programs for children.”

 

 

The collection reflects Mr. Manoogian’s belief that, “It is important for people to appreciate the unique character, diversity and quality of American art. I hope that our collection will encourage others to both appreciate and collect American art.”  Mr. Manoogian served as Chairman of the Detroit Institute of Arts (the DIA dedicated its American Wing as the Manoogian Wing) and has also served on the boards of Archives of American Art, the White House Preservation Fund and the Fine Arts Committee of the Department of State.

Mug-A-Thon Promises Fun in FUNdraising for Clay Glass Metal Stone’s New Home!

 The Rickie Report hopes to see you at the upcoming Mug-A-Thon FUNdraiser for Clay Glass Metal Stone Cooperative Gallery in Lake Worth! South Shores Tavern will be offering good music, good art and good beer! The artists of Clay Glass Metal Stone promise over 200 decorated mugs to choose from!

Clay Glass Metal Stone Cooperative Gallery

Friday, March 8 and Saturday March 9

7 PM til Closing

 Good Music-Good Art- Good Beer

502 Lucerne Avenue in Downtown Lake Worth

The artists of the Clay Glass Metal Stone Gallery are busy turning out 200 uniquely decorated mugs for a fund-raiser sponsored by South Shores Tavern.  The fundraiser called at “Mug-A-Thon” at South Shores will enable Clay Glass Metal Stone Gallery to survive its transition to a new location.  The fundraiser will be held on Friday, March 8 and Saturday March 9 from 7PM until closing.
Postcard-1
 
200 mugs are being created for the Mug-A-Thon.  With a tax-deductible donation of $30 you receive a mug, a fill-up of beer at South Shores and wine at the Clay Glass Metal Stone Gallery and two evenings of wonderful music. Friday night features Blues Dragon and Saturday night features Max DuBose and the M-Plants to the stage.  Featured also are Suzanne Canon and PinkSlip.  The South Shores outstanding Chef will be serving wonderful and affordable foods throughout the fund-raiser.
 
Clay Glass Metal Stone Gallery, a four year fixture in the Downtown Lake Worth Arts District, will be leaving the building they have occupied for all of those years.  The generosity of Jay Bernhardt allowed the gallery to function rent free for a while.  With a change of management and a monthly escalating rental cost, the non-profit artist cooperative found itself paying three times in rent over its monthly income.  Summertime air conditioning costs compounded the problem.  A concerted effort was made to find a new home in Lake Worth.  The building of the Lake Worth Arts District through the efforts of LULA, the Lake Worth CRA and Tracey Coffey were key to this decision.  A new home has been found at 15 South J Street and the gallery will be moving in by April 1.
 
“The artists of Clay Glass Metal Stone Gallery are deeply indebted to Karine Albano of South Shores Tavern for holding this fundraiser for us,” said gallery member Betty Wilson, also of the Dixie Art Loft and the Craft Gallery.  “This help allows us to meet our obligations, survive and thrive. We have raised money for so many other causes through the gallery, we are grateful that the community is coming together to help us when we need it the most.”
 
Clay§Glass§Metal§Stone Cooperative Gallery is sponsored by the Flamingo Clay Studio, a non-profit arts organization whose mission is to provide affordable studio and gallery space for three-dimensional artists.  The gallery is currently located at 605 Lake Avenue in downtown Lake Worth.
It will be moving to 15 South J Street in April.  Hours are Sunday thru Tuesday, 9AM-1PM. Wednesday thru Saturday, 9AM-9PM.   Gallery openings are the first and third Friday of each month from 6-9 PM with many special events in-between.  For information call Joyce Brown-215-205-9441 orJCLay6@aol.com.  Gallery phone: 561-588-8344.
