Third Thursday, February 21, At Lighthouse ArtCenter Features Lecture By J. Marshall Adams And Focuses On The Life And Achievements Of A.E.Backus

The Lighthouse ArtCenter announces plans for an informative talk about the artist A.E.”Bean” Backus by J.Marshall Adams, the Executive Director of the A.E.Backus Museum & Gallery. The public is welcome to hear the lecture during the monthly 3rd Thursday reception on February 21.  Mr. Backus has a fascinating place in the history of Florida art, as the preeminent landscape painter and the teacher of Alfred Hair, one of the original Florida Highwaymen, a group of mostly self-taught artists who painted Florida landscapes starting in the 1940’s. Don’t miss the Exhibit, “Building Frank Lloyd Wright’s Guggenheim” available now through March 2.

A.E. “Bean” Backus painting en plein air, back country, St. Lucie County (late 1940s)

 

 

 

 

 

 

Mr. Marshall will present “Part Cracker, Part Monet: A.E. Backus.” As Florida’s preeminent landscape painter, A.E. “Bean” Backus (1906-1990), brought a natural eye and self-trained mastery to present the idyllic, rugged beauty of the glades, beaches, rivers, savannas, and back country of his home state with a singular devotion and unique sense of place. Mr. Marshall invites you to discover the compelling story of this artist’s creative practice and his altruistic spirit that continues to inspire today.

 

 

 

A.E. Backus (American, 1906-1990). Spanish Bayonets on the Indian River, c. 1960. Oil on canvas, 23 x 35 inches. Collection of the A.E. Backus Museum & Gallery, 2008.B.2.OC.2.

 

 

With a career spanning more than 70 years, Backus was the first Florida-born artist to build his professional renown by painting the landscape and scenes from daily life of his native state. He was fortunate to have known great success during his lifetime, with paintings hanging in the businesses and the private collections of many of Florida’s most prominent citizens. A renowned humanitarian who abhorred the racist attitudes and segregation that engulfed the region, Backus taught and mentored the group of entrepreneurial African American artists who became known as the Florida Highwaymen. Their inspiring story is part of the A.E. Backus legacy.

 

 

 

A.E. Backus (American, 1906-1990). Morning Light – Everglades, c. 1970. Oil on canvas, 24 x 30 inches. Collection of the A.E. Backus Museum & Gallery, 2009.B.1.OC.1.

 

 

 

J. Marshall Adams is the Executive Director of the A.E. Backus Museum & Gallery in Historic Downtown Fort Pierce, Florida. Adams brings more than 20 years of museum experience to his role, and has been recognized statewide and nationally for his work. He was previously the Director of Education at the Vero Beach Museum of Art, the Director of Education & Exhibitions at the Museum of Contemporary Art Jacksonville, and the Head of School Programs at the High Museum of Art in Atlanta. He has a Master’s in Museum Education from Bank Street College of Education in New York, and a Bachelor’s in Studio Art from Tulane University in New Orleans. The Backus Museum is a vital part of the cultural life of its community, and is well-regarded beyond for championing the history and legacy of A.E. Backus as one of the region’s most renowned artists, and as a humanitarian who felt that art was for everyone.

 

 

 

If your interest is piqued about the Highwaymen artists, the A.E. Backus Museum & Gallery presents the new exhibition Artists of Color: Place, Race, and Vision of the Florida Highwaymen, featuring 50 works by original Highwaymen Harold Newton, Alfred Hair, Roy McLendon, Sam Newton, Willie Daniels, Mary Ann Carroll, Livingston Roberts, and Johnny Daniels. The exhibition demonstrates in powerful images how the Highwaymen’s search for economic independence, creative freedom, and a distinctive vision blended together in a way that transformed how we see the landscapes before us. The exhibition features works from private collections, many never exhibited before, and is curated by Roger Lightle. Artists of Color: Place, Race, and Vision of the Florida Highwaymen is on view through March 3, 2019.

 

 

 

About the A.E. Backus Museum & Gallery

With a recently added, multi-million dollar expansion, the A.E. Backus Museum & Gallery houses the nation’s largest public presentation of artwork by Florida’s preeminent painter, A.E. “Bean” Backus (1906-1990), and is home to the state’s only permanent multimedia exhibition on the Florida Highwaymen. In addition to preserving and perpetuating the artistic and humanitarian legacy of Backus, the Museum organizes and hosts changing exhibitions from artists of national and international acclaim. It was voted “Best Museum 2018” in Indian River Magazine’s annual “Best of the Treasure Coast,” where it was described as “a fabulous place to visit.” The 58th Season of exhibitions, programs, and events continues through June.

Detail of artwork by Xavier Cortada

 

Xavier Cortada (Miami, Florida): Thought provoking and powerful, Cortada’s bold and brilliant use of color emphasizes climate change, extinctions, and his participatory art projects have involved citizens all over the world.

 

Sarah Crooks Detail of Artwork

 

Sarah Crooks (Jacksonville, Florida): As an eco-feminist, Sarah Crooks creates multi-disciplinary installations that blend environmental science with expressive art.

 

Detail of “From here” by Mary GrandPre

 

Mary GrandPre (Sarasota, Florida): Illustrator of the American editions of the Hary Potter Novels, GrandPre’s fine art features the intuitive application of texture and color that balance abstraction and realism to create a new world, one that suggests the familiar, but leaves the door open.

 

“Judith Submerged” by Cheryl Maeder

 

Cheryl Maeder (West Palm Beach, Florida): Maeder’s fusion of unexpected perspectives and vivid colors create a dreamy tranquility in and around the water. The ethereal hazes in her exotic work leaves the viewer with a gentle lasting sense of wonder.

 

Detail of artwork by Margarett Ross Tolbert

 

 

Margaret Ross Tolbert (Gainesville, Florida): The sensuous experience of Florida’s freshwater springs is translated through Margaret Tolbert and the large scale paintings she uses a mop to create. Her work quickens the imagination and inspires stewardship for these sparkling gems that are disappearing as a result of population growth.

“Encroachment” by Andrea Huffman

 

 

Nancy Politsch, Executive Director of the Lighthouse ArtCenter said, “Through the generosity of philanthropists such as Norma and Bill Roth, Gil Walsh Interiors, and the Meyer Law Firm, we are able to continue our mission as ​ the cultural anchor for visual arts in Palm Beach and Martin counties, to provide new ways to explore, learn, interact and create rewarding experiences for individuals and their families in the world of art. Now more than ever, where there is art there is hope.”

 

As further enticement, the Maltz Jupiter Theatre opened its costume department to more than 20 years of glorious character costumes that have graced the Carbonell Award Winning stage. They invited ArtCenter curator, Janeen Mason, select a few surprises that patrons of the arts will surely recognize as a part of the Elegant Threads exhibition.
