Best of 2018: Art

12.29.18 Reached the end of Best of 2018 and that is Art. I haven’t seen a lot of it this year, but in 2019 I will make up for it! Here is a small list of art museums who in my artistic opinion that had exhibitions that showed some really great art. Plus, there is an article from Vulture by Jerry Saltz.  Metropolitan Museum of Art NYC Delacroix French painter Eugène Delacroix (1798–1863) was one of the greatest creative figures of the nineteenth century. Coming of age after the fall of Napoleon, he reconnected the present to the past on his own terms. Delacroix produced an extraordinarily vibrant body of work, setting into motion a cascade of innovations that changed the course of art. This exhibition is the first comprehensive retrospective devoted to this amazing artist ever held in North America. –The Met exhibition overreview The Met Fifth Avenue /  1000 Fifth Avenue New York, NY 10028 Phone: 212-535-7710 http://www.metmuseum.org The exhibition will be held  at The Met from SEPTEMBER 17, 2018–JANUARY 6, 2019   …

SPOTLIGHT ARTIST JULY 2014: HOWARD FINSTER

July 16, 2014 Hello! Tuomas Korpi was going to be this month’s Spotlight Artist, but that will be saved for August. So I decided that it will be the late Howard Finster. I saw this man’s work at the High Museum in Atlanta back in April. Finster was not only an artist, but he was also a Baptist minister. He said that he was inspired by God to spread the gospel through designing the historic art folk site, Paradise Garden, which is located Summerville Georgia.   Finster created visionary, outsider, and naïve art. At the age of 13, he became born again. He began preaching at 16. He began his artist work in the late 1940’s when he started building a garden park. Unfortunately he ran out of land, so by 1961, he moved to Pennville, Georgia, near Summerville, thus creating Paradise Garden. He retired from being a mister in 1965 and continued to create his artistic works. Finster became public in 1975, by the 80’s when he created album covers for REM and Talking …

MY TRIP TO THE HIGH MUSUEM ATLANTA

May 23, 2014 Hello! How’s everyone’s Friday? Good I hope. I’m enjoying my four-day weekend. During the second Saturday (my birthday) in April, my mom and I went to Atlanta over the weekend. We visited the High Museum of Art and it was really impressive! The High Museum has so many exhibitions, activities…..One of the exhibitions that I wanted to see was Go West! Art of the American Frontier From the Buffalo Center of the West, at the Wieland Pavilion second level, which was held November 3, 2013 till April 13, 2014. It was everything I thought it would be. Each painting, artifacts were displayed with the attention they all deserved. It was like a treasure trove of a once bygone era….sounds corny I know, but it was. I wanted to jump into those paintings just to get a glimpse of it all, just soak it all in! We went to a few other exhibitions as well like, Splendor: The Work of Jim Waters, Abelardo Morell: The Universe Next Door, African Mask/Masquerade: More Than Meets the Eye, …
