The ‘Ark’ is waiting

  Our country is at the most precarious point in time and history. The decisions to be made will not only change our lives, but it will also affect the entire world. It is an urgent time and art has always been the best medium to convey the Message of the People. Like in the […]

‘Fire of Life’

Along with a captive audience, I was totally in awe by the performance of Forever Flamenco recently at the John Anson Ford Theatre. This was a crescendo of over 700 flamenco performances produced by the Fountain Theatre in Los Angeles. The word “Jaleo” was heard throughout this amphitheater. This is a term that only this […]

Coach echoes bravos for baritone

Review by Ann Gresham      As said in Robert Browning’s Andrea del Sarto, “Ah, but a man’s reach should exceed his grasp, Or what’s a Heaven for?” I found the latter words so true recently when I drove two white-knuckled hours through LA’s Friday rush-hour traffic in the rain to hear the senior recital of young […]

A treasured time

One of my greatest anticipations during the summer is a journey to the Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute in Williamstown, Massachusetts with my sister. The Clark is located on rolling lawns nestled in a beautiful wooded area. Before you even enter the building, you can sense a feeling of peace and the need to […]

My artistic demands met

     Approaching a work of art of any period and in any medium, we have the expectation of honesty, integrity, originality, sincerity and mastering his medium.      In contemporary art, we find these qualities in such figures by Matthew Blackwell, who derives his paintings from his imagination and personal convictions.       For each work, he […]

A visual feast

    On Saturday, April 6, 2013, it was an evening for art lovers. The galleries in the famed Bergamot Station/Santa Monica area swung open their doors, especially the Sulkin/Secant, where an exhibition of approximately twenty-five known artists in the Western US region exhibited their works which were part of the Portal of Opportunities competition conducted by LarkGallery. […]

‘Whoops of pleasure’…

  Set in the crown of a Magyar evening at Walt Disney Concert Hall on January 18, 2013, a radiant, commanding Midori (www.gotomidori.com) and the Los Angeles Philharmonic swept aside the cobwebs of the conventional concerto experience in Peter Eötvös’s labyrinth of sound and architectural emotion; it was the world premiere of the 69-year old […]

A gem among the scholars

    Tucked on a corner of a sprawling 350 acre campus of the University of Texas in Austin, stands a building that blends in with the others, however the exterior looks are deceiving. The Blanton Museum of Art gave me the feeling of stepping into another reality in dimension and perception. Built in 2003, the […]

A big Boom for my buck

     Children’s author and illustrator, Steven Kellogg lit up the stage at the Niswonger Performing Arts Center in Van Wert, Ohio. The gregarious artist captured not only mine, but also from what I immensely believe, the whole audience with his lively animated approach.     His face glowed as he shared letters he received from young […]

Yes I will Whitney, but . . .

     There are a few quotes I found hurriedly handwritten amongst my many piles that I cannot attribute the authorship to: “You know that you are in love when the hardest thing to do is say good-bye” and “A true lover always feels in debt to the one he loves.” These are two of my […]

Simon´s ´Dream´ is history in the making

     It has been said many of times and in many ways, but I remain completely confident we never forget our first loves; those which become so deep-rooted in the fabric of our self–we just can let them go, regardless where we are in our so-far life travels. For me and to this day, Barbra […]

My final Blanton ‘escapade’

Once again I traversed the serenity of the atrium from the diverse exhibition pieces.  I traveled upstairs excited to revel in pieces acquired through donations by patrons as Farah Fawcett and the American novelist James Michener and his wife Mari, among many others, to the Blanton Museum at the University of Texas at Austin.  True […]

Blanton: My journey continues

After transcending from another dimension, in the atrium sea colors of “Stacked Waters” by Teresita Fernandez, I passed through an archway of Texas Limestone columns into the galleries that house the exhibitions. A different dimension is evident from the meditative atrium to polished hardwood floors, spacious areas that are separated by moveable low walls, contemporary […]

Memories made perfect

          One of my favorite museums is the Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute in Williamstown, Massachusetts.

My sister Janet and I look forward to this visit, especially during the summertime.      […]

The Color of Experience

     George Gallo´s film, “Local Color” has taken the word riveting and has successfully raised its meaning to a new charted height, for this film has opened my eyes more, and has given me the return opportunity to recall the powerful direction I received from my first mentor.      The film truly drives home its […]
