“Important Avant-Garde Patrons of Then Unknown Artists”

by Joan Lipton

 

lacjoan-lipton-photo

 

At the outset of their careers, both Matisse and Picasso considered themselves very lucky when two sets of patrons collected an abundance of their paintings.   “Two Baltimore ladies,” as Matisse called sisters Clarabel and Etta Cone, bought his Fauve paintings that had been dismissed as wild creations by the critics. Soon they were also purchasing Picassos and other modern masters-to-be. A friend of the Cones, Gertrude Stein and her siblings, Leo and Michael, also added innumerable works by Matisse, Picasso and a host of Post-Impressionists. The gatherings in the Stein home at 27 rue de Fleurus, also known as the “Stein Studio,” brought together confluences of talent and thinking that would help define modernism in literature and art. Pablo Picasso, Henri Matisse and other dedicated attendees included Ernest Hemingway, F. Scott Fitzgerald, and Sinclair Lewis to name a few.

 
Art historian, Joan Lipton, Ph.D., will share many facts and paintings with her audience, all of which will surprise and excite you. Ms. Lipton has held numerous workshops in colleges, alumni associations, adult education centers and libraries in New York City and New Jersey.

World Renown Artist, David Hayes’ Sculptures in Northwood

Thirteen large steel sculptures by noted Connecticut artist David Hayes will grace the Northwood Village shopping district of West Palm Beach for a year.  Northwood Village, located in northern West Palm Beach, is an oasis of restaurants, galleries and pedestrian friendly shops. The district has enjoyed a resurgence as a foodie destination in recent years, capped now by an exuberant display of outdoor sculpture. The Rickie Report suggests you stop by a little earlier for that dinner reservation, to take in all that Northwood has to offer!

Jon Ward, Executive Director of the West Palm Beach Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA), states that “This brings an exciting, world-class display of modern sculpture to one of West Palm Beach’s most charming neighborhood shopping centers.” Northwood Village, located in northern West Palm Beach, is an oasis of restaurants, galleries and pedestrian friendly shops. The district has enjoyed a resurgence as a foodie destination in recent years, capped now by an exuberant display of outdoor sculpture.

 

 

The artwork will be sited outside of stores and shops in Northwood Village. Sculptures will be strategically placed on sidewalks, open spaces, grassy fields and courtyards where people walk on their way to work and shop. Artist David Hayes previously commented: “I like placing sculpture where people may view them on their own terms. It is important to bring artwork to public areas where anybody may enjoy it at their leisure.”

 

 

Son of the sculptor and exhibit curator John Hayes says that the exhibited artwork is part of a traveling museum exhibition and planning for this tour has been going on for over a year. Hayes worked closely with Jon Ward, who previously served on the Board of the Florida Council for Arts and Culture and had spearheaded major outdoor sculpture exhibitions in the region.

The sculptures are all created from welded steel plate and are designed for long-term public art exposure. The show consists of a variety of the artists’ different phases, including some screen pieces as well as iconic totems and even one hanging piece. Hayes selected to paint the pieces either in a semi-gloss black finish or bright multi-colors, depending on the feeling of the sculpture. The exhibition enjoys strong support from the community, including the village’s numerous residents and store owners.

 

 

The late artist enjoyed a six-decade long reputation as one of America’s great contemporary sculptors and has work included in the Museum of Modern Art, the Guggenheim Museum plus over 100 institutional collections across the country. He also designed jewelry for Pierre Cardin while living in Paris.
