Brigitte Balbinot Shares “A Summer Night” at AR Gallery in Delray Beach

Internationally known artist, Brigitte Balbinot, will exhibit her paintings in a group exhibit at AR Gallery in Delray Beach.  The exhibit, “A Summer Night”, will feature some of Balbinot’s latest works, including paintings from her most recent series ‘Minority’ which was recently featured at the Cornell Museum of Art in Florida.  The Rickie Report shares the details here and knows that you will be intrigued with Brigitte’s unique vision.









Opening Reception:

Thursday, July 17th

The AR Gallery at 340 NE 4 Street in Delray Beach, FL will open its doors to a summer group show, to include guest  International Artist Brigitte Balbinot on July 17  from 6 – 9PM.  The exhibit titled ‘A Summer Night’ will feature some of Balbinot’s latest works, including paintings from her most recent series Minority which was recently featured at the Cornell Museum of Art in Florida.

Swiss by birth, Brigitte Balbinot is now based in South Florida and travels regularly to the Province of Quebec where she also maintains an art studio. Her work, simple and complex all at the same time, reflects a minimalist approach. Each piece of artwork comprises 30-40 layers of oil paint. The use of various mediums allows the Artist to create rich textures and interesting visual affects that translate her unique vision onto the canvas.

In her statement, Balbinot says: “I favor abstract painting and use a minimalistic approach in my work. To me simplicity is about bringing order to complexity. When the work is streamlined, it enables the mind to expand. Only then can imagination happen. I love depth and textures; they remind me of what once was.”  


"Marrakech" by Brigitte Balbinot  Oil/Resin on canvas  20 X 20

Brigitte goes on to say, “The philosophy Wabi-Sabi from the Zen Buddhist culture that is centered on the acceptance of transience and imperfection plays a definite role in my creative process. My paintings sometimes appear to be “scarred” and “worn”, survivors of a long journey having a story to tell… Working with oil paint, pigments and various mediums allow me to create a work that is rich in substance and interesting to look at. I prefer to work large as it creates a stronger focal point that captures the viewer’s attention.”

In a review by Carrie Turner, editor of Fine Art Views (March, 2013), art critic Brian Sherwin is cited, “The compositional structure and use of raw texture in Balbinot’s paintings allow the imagination of the viewer to decipher meaning based on what he or she brings, psychologically speaking, to the viewing experience”.

Norton Museum Collaborates with Andy Warhol Museum in Premiere Exhibit “Baby” Jane Holzer

Palm Beach native Jane Holzer was Andy Warhol’s first and most glamorous superstar, as well as a lifelong intimate.  She offers a singular insight into understanding  Warhol as a “prescient artist, media star, and focus of the 1960s cult of personality”.  The Norton Museum of Art, in collaboration with the Andy Warhol Museum, will present the first exhibit to focus on the relationship between the artist and his muse.  A special “Warhol and Film” panel discussion takes place on February 2nd.  The Rickie Report shares more details in this article.

The Norton Museum of Art, in collaboration with The Andy Warhol Museum, is presenting the first exhibition to focus on the relationship between artist Andy Warhol and his muse Jane Holzer – popularly known as “Baby Jane.” To Jane, Love Andy: Warhol’s First Superstar, will be on view Feb. 2 – May 25, 2014 and explores the Holzer’s rise as well as Warhol’s art, emphasizing the period of 1962-1965.  The exhibition will include films featuring Holzer, paintings, sculpture, and prints, as well as rarely seen material from Warhol’s own “Time Capsules.”  A Warhol and Film panel discussion is set for 3 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 2, featuring Holzer and prominent curators familiar with Warhol’s films.

“As Andy Warhol’s first and most glamorous superstar, as well as a lifelong intimate, Jane Holzer offers singular insight into understanding  Warhol as a prescient artist, media star, and focus of the 1960s cult of personality,” said Cheryl Brutvan, Director of Curatorial Affairs and Curator of Contemporary Art at the Norton. “The Norton is delighted to celebrate Jane Holzer who is a Palm Beach native and continues to have close associations with the community.”




The exhibition examines the rise of “Baby Jane,” a nickname given to Holzer by a Women’s Wear Daily columnist in 1962. Through fashions Holzer wore during the height of her modeling career for Vogue (among other publications), fashion layouts, and photographs of Holzer, her  early, independent identity and associations with the fashion world will be explored. The frenzied attention paid to Holzer prompted author Tom Wolfe to profile her in his 1964 essay, “The Girl of the Year.”




Holzer’s entry into Warhol’s circle and her role as a member and muse who contributed to the early years of his New York studio, The Factory, is seen through Warhol’s art and, especially his films which were of primary concern to him at the time.  Warhol created many of his iconic works, including the various series of paintings titled, Flowers, Jackie, and Death and Disasters during Holzer’s association with the studio from approximately 1962-1965. He also produced many films during this time with Holzer’s participation, including Kiss (1963-1964), Soap Opera (1964), Batman and Dracula (1964), and eight Screen Tests (1964-1966), among others.




“Holzer provides a significant counterpoint to many of the other visitors to Warhol’s studio,” Brutvan said. “She entered The Factory as an established, successful model. Warhol benefitted from her ‘it’ girl status and social connections. Holzer, in turn, benefitted from Warhol’s filmmaking, which fulfilled her early ambition to be in movies.”




“Andy Warhol and Baby Jane Holzer hold a special place in American pop culture,” said Norton Museum Executive Director Hope Alswang. “He was the epitome of the avant-garde and she was the epitome of style. The Norton is honored that Jane entrusted the Museum to draw back the curtain on this very public, yet intimate friendship to better understand this rich period in Warhol’s life and in American art.”




With updated technology by The Andy Warhol Museum, visitors will have the opportunity to create their own “Screen Test” while experiencing one of the challenges Warhol’s stars faced – sit for three minutes without blinking. Each visitor’s screen test will be posted on a custom web page where it can be shared with various social media outlets.


Exhibition-related programs include:


Warhol and Film panel discussion at 3 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 2, 2014: The panel features distinguished museum curators familiar with Warhol’s contributions to film, including Stuart Comer, Chief Curator of the Department of Media and Performance Art at The Museum of Modern Art; Claire K. Henry, Senior Curatorial Assistant, The Andy Warhol Film Project at the Whitney Museum of American Art; and Geralyn Huxley, Curator of Film and Video at The Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh.  Jane Holzer is the panel’s special guest. The program is free with Museum admission.



Art 101 mini-course, Warhol’s ‘60s: This three-part course looks at the heyday of Warhol’s Factory, and other contemporary approaches to art that continue to resonate today; gallery discussions and power-point presentations led by Museum staff, 1 to 3 p.m. on three consecutive Wednesdays: Feb. 26, March 5, and March 12. Registration is $75 for members and $100 for non-members. Call (561) 832-5196, x 1113.




To Jane, Love Andy Curator’s Conversation at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 27, 2014: Organizing curator for the exhibition, Cheryl Brutvan, leads a discussion of the exhibition during Art After Dark.




Cinema of the ‘60s series, beginning 6:30 p.m. March 20, 2014: Film scholar, author, and former Palm Beach Post Books Editor Scott Eyman screens cutting-edge films by some of the most daring filmmakers working in New York during the 1960s. Each screening will be followed by a discussion. The series opens during Art After Dark with D.A. Pennebaker’s Don’t Look Back, a documentary about Bob Dylan’s 1965 UK concert tour, and closes on April 17 with films by Warhol. This program is made possible in part through the generosity of the Gayle and Paul Gross Education Endowment Fund.
