All Art Friday

All Art Friday

All Art Friday Spotlights

✦ Find an hour in your day for this talk by Charles Froelick about the late Rick Bartow's life, artistic career, and legacy. The discussion took place at the Froelick Gallery in Portland, Oregon. The Native American (Wiyot, Northern California) was a sculptor, painter, and printmaker whose work can be found in museum collections throughout the United States. Crow's Shadow Institute of the Arts, Pendleton, Oregon, has established The Rick Bartow Memorial Endowment Fund in Bartow's honor.

✦ Jewelry collector Lois Boardman donated 300 pieces of her wearable contemporary studio jewelry to Los Angeles County Museum of Art. A selection of 50 pieces from the collection—distinguished by the wide range of materials and methods it represents—is now on view at LACMA in "Beyond Bling: Jewelry from the Lois Boardman Collection". The exhibition continues through February 5, 2017. A scholarly catalogue, offering a comprehensive look at the collection and essays by co-curators Rose Chambers Mills and Bobbye Tigerman, as well as Helen W. Drutt English, Blake Gopnik, and Benjamin Lignel, is available.

✦ West Australia's Marianne Penberthy describes herself as "a textile artist who searches for an organic expression for my natural surroundings. This quest includes ideas about place, time, memory, isolation, feelings and belonging." In the video below, "Flour on the Ground: Temporary Textile Installations", a 2014 project, Penberthy talks about her beautiful work and the materials she uses.
