LIMITED EDITION BOOK – SEVEN YEARS IN THE MAKING

This Limited Edition art book has been in the making since year 2010. This delay was caused by distracting circumstances, that turned out to be also very destructive. As a result, one of my cherished pieces I was working on, titled “Veritas Omnia Vincit”, that I planned to be prominently feBOOK 1atured in this book, was accidentally damaged while still in clay.
The long months of work on the 5 foot sculpture, is that portrayed and enthusiastic figure, full of joy, with arms victoriousy stretch towards the sky, will be a cherished experience. It will not be featured in this book evening clay …. But this unfinished work was a part of the reason not to postpone the publication of the book any longer. Somehow it prompted me to act.

This book is about art expressions. My personal expressions as an Artist , are revolving around two things – philosophical search for an inner  freedom and the human emotional search for self- definition. Partial answers to my questions have been heavy emerged in the process………without a love for our world, dream for the future of humanity and our planet, there is no truthfully existence,  no truthful self-definition…. It all starts with inspiration. It all starts with a dream, followed by love, clad any determination.

I invite you, the art lover and aren’t viewer, to indulge in your very own emotional discovery and ultimately become a part BOOK 2of my search for answers.  The book encompasses a period of my work for about 15 years.

The Art Book signing event  is scheduled for May 9, 2018  from 4 to 7 pm  in the City of Calabasas. This event is by invitation – however , feel free to  RSVP to attend!  The Library doors will be open! Look for your Invite in the e-mail and /or mail! 

We will be displaying  some of the bronze sculpture portraits as well as a small number of the large scale paintings, in addition to the two dozen short art videos created through the years. . We’re looking forward to creating a beautiful event that will complete a 15 year period,  devoted to portrait sculpture with  and expressionistic large scale portrait paintings and abstracts ,  in order to open the road to my new artistic  journey of contemporary  and conceptual  geometry. There will be light refreshments and  all around good vibes served.  See you then!

Yours truly,

ART ON BERGAMONT

BERGAMONT STATION OPENING NIGHT

On October 24th 2015, the Bergamont Station  gallery row is buzzing with life!… It was packed! Parking was full! There were so many events simultaneously that it was barely possible to visit them all,

Craig Krull Gallery, Ned Evans Oct 24, 2015

I was very enthusiastic to see what is in show – some of the invitations were  informative I was actually looking to an Art Talk at Samuel Freeman Gallery , just to find out that they have moved and I simply have forgotten… Ugh.

But there were many new galleries in the place of the ones that have moved elsewhere . Attending the openings was very exciting for me! Especially this Saturday , the Gallery Row seemed to be brimming with life! I went with a friend of mine, who is a couture designer –  and we did a series of gallery  openings. Some – in and out – others kept me in to savor the Artists work. Some of them shows  were great – others outstanding…
One thing   didn’t make me happy – the SANTA MONICA MUSEUM OF ART has closed its doors….. This was a sad moment – but I am sure it will be resolved in matter of  months. I have been there a few times – and ever since it opened – it looked more like a gallery. Perhaps because my idea of an Art Museum as institutions like MOCA or LACMA or TATE …. Anyway – regardless of what I thought – it was a great start for a future institution. Arts have in disfavor f lately by lawmakers and budgetmakers , cutting art programs from schools –  so any organization that enhances public ‘s interest in  Art  is good. Santa Monica Museum of Art , despite its small size was a plus…It remains to be seen what the fate of this art establishment will be.

The truth is– most of the shows were good, some of the shows were even fantastic ! ANDREW WEISS GALLERY, located in the place of the James Gray gallery had a great opening of small works on paper by Larry Bell and Ed Moses among others. It had the feel of a San Francisco gallery… GREG KRULL GALLERY had works by Ned Evans, RUTH BACHOFNER Gallery was showing Virginia Katz and Audra Weasner, LOIS LAMBERT had Kinetic Art and LAURA KORMAN has Katherine Tsu Lynn Mann. All galleries were curated and staged to perfection this season. .Some of them displaying quite a classy presentation with a performance by classical harpist( Charissa Barger at Laura Korman) . The effort extended past the Art and contributed to an air of a celebrartory feel. Hopefully this will reflect in the sales. Bergamont Station is making a come back!!Public’s interest in Art is making a come back! This is the best news as of lately. Yes! Finally! Thank you LA!

Your truly,

TY
