The Lighthouse ArtCenter Museum is proud to present selections from The Manoogian Collection: Two Centuries of American Art 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.

 Gerri wants to offer the audience a review of Contemporary Art from the Impressionists up to the 21st century, showing that Contemporary Art all has to do with artists relating their artwork to the times. Their art expresses concepts and ideas that are current and includes what the public is involved with and thinking about. Very often the general public thinks that contemporary art is out of context and taken from left field but that is not the case, at all. All in all, the lecture will heighten the experience of people who take advantage the Lighthouse ArtCenter’s bus tour opportunities.

Gerri Aurre earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Art Education and was a career Art teacher in New York. She has traveled worldwide throughout her life. Her art is about landscape, the figure and abstraction coming from the essence of those travel experiences. Aurre is the President of the North County Artists Association.

Celebrate the Artful Back Alley 

Award Winners surprise with cutting-edge paintings!

 

Twenty local artists created large-scale murals on a 200-foot long outdoor wall, while more than 300 visitors enjoyed watching the acrylic paintings come alive. The inaugural Back Alley Mural Festival was a collaborative, community event held at Gallery Square North in Tequesta on September 19-20, 2015. The murals will be on view in the public space for one month, culminating with a festive Art Stroll to celebrate the artful back alley on October 16 from 6 to 9 p.m. The event is free to members of the Lighthouse ArtCenter and to the public.

 

 

LACMuralMark Rupprect, Flamingo

“Flamingo” by Mark Rupprect

Presented by the Lighthouse ArtCenter, the festival was a celebration of the power of art in public places. “As the ArtCenter is eco-friendly, no aerosols were used for the paintings,” said Cynthia Trone, Director of Education at the Lighthouse ArtCenter. “The murals created conversation, new friendships, artistic inspiration, and fueled a growing sense of community in the small Village of Tequesta.”

 

 

 

LACMuralFlorida Faucet, Manon Sander

“Florida Faucet” by Manon Sander

 

Julie Silk Beaumont, muralist and owner of Village Art Studios, saw the potential of creating a local, neighborhood art-centered outdoor painting event for “sunbirds, so we intentionally scheduled the event before the arrival of the busy ‘snowbird’ season.”

 

  • In keeping with the easy-going camaraderie of the event, winners were chosen by Peoples’ Choice Award votes:  First Place was awarded to Mark Rupprect, a local graffiti artist and fine art teacher. Signing his work “Bulks”, he is known for his bold and colorful designs, Mark was a crowd favorite with his striking chrome, black and white Flamingo and Alligator.

 

  • Second Place went to Lighthouse ArtCenter faculty member Marta Llorens. An artist and conceptual thinker from Barcelona, Spain, Marta created her first large-scale contour painting. Her abstract portraits are gaining an audience both abroad and locally and her background in graphic arts, fine arts and historical research is apparent in her fantastic and detailed work.

 

 

  • Manon Sander, a local artist and faculty member at Lighthouse ArtCenter, won Third Place. Her “Florida Faucet” was a surreal and delightful departure from her familiar plein air paintings that continue to win her awards and a devoted following of collectors and students. It features a quote by Thoreau which captured the essence of the day, ”It’s not what you look at that matters, it’s what you see.”

ABOUT PLEIN AIR

 

En plein air is a French expression which means “in the open air,” and is used to describe the act of painting outdoors. The mid-19th century saw working in natural light become particularly important to the impressionists, which only increased with the introduction of paint in tubes, giving additional portability to the artists.
