Fabulous Flatware: Non Traditional Tools of the Table
flatware
Installation view

April 19 to June 23,2013

This exhibition of over 750 pieces of flatware demonstrates that good design and imagination can elevate relatively mundane objects like forks, spoons, and knives to an art form. These elegant, sometimes quirky, settings were selected from the collection of Dr. William P. Hood, a longtime collector and expert on Victorian era silver, who in recent years has shifted his collection focus to 20th Century and recent design. Fabulous Flatware traces innovative design from the 19th Century to the present. Dr. Lee A. Gray, the show‘s curator, found selecting what should be shown in the exhibition from Dr. Hoods formidable collection presented the biggest challenge. In the end she chose a core of 330 basic place settings in 110 patterns complemented by novelties and ingenious implements for the table. Dr. Gray points out that "good design is an invisible luxury," often not even noticed but surely able to make our lives much better.

Organized by the Paul and Lulu Hilliard University Art Museum, University of Louisiana at Lafayette.

Vincent Van Gogh’s The Starry Night, with its vivid blues and hypnotic swirls, has captivated art lovers for more than 100 years. The 112-carat Burmese The Starry Night Sapphire, which has a magnificent star that dances across its surface, evokes Van Gogh’s enchanting masterpiece. Gemstones that display an optical effect – like The Starry Night Sapphire’s asterism – are referred to as “phenomenal” gemstones. The size and beauty of this particular sapphire are rare, rendering it phenomenal indeed. Also displayed: An Edwardian ring set with pale blue and padparadscha sapphires, a ring set with diamonds, and a classic ruby from Burma (Myanmar).

Reflections in Modern Mexican Silver: Consider the Context

 
Sunday, April 14, 2013 | 3 pm
In the 1920s, many people in Mexico embraced their indigenous roots in an era of cultural revolution. The visual and performing arts and the archaeological discoveries of the period inspired silver designers to produce jewelry and objects that were emblematic of a new Mexico. Dr. Penny Morrill, professor of art history, discusses how each of these handwrought silver objects has an intriguing story to tell, which usually involves larger-than-life personalities and boldly imaginative and creative spirits. Dr. Morrill has written numerous books and articles on modern Mexican silver.

Enrico David
January 12, 2013 - May 5, 2013

Transient figures and intangible forms dwell in the work of Enrico David. They retain a graphic quality as they transition from spontaneous sketches on paper to paintings, sculptures, and works in other mediums. This exhibition, David’s first solo presentation in Los Angeles, takes its cue from a singular figure modeled in bronze around a hollow animal bone and bound to a protruding blade.The statuette is like an anthropomorphic pocketknife that embodies both permanence, through its molded outlines, and ephemerality, through its gaping cavity. Around it, paper mummies crawl across the wall of the gallery, a haunting silhouette peers out of a large canvas, and ethereal profiles form a see-through metal screen. The infinite shifts and vortexes of David’s underworld are evoked in the streaming lines of his drawings and the repetitive loops of a handcrafted tapestry. Experienced together, the works in this exhibition evoke the continuous metamorphosis of body and soul. Groundless images and vacuous gazes exude a sense of unease in the visitor, who is at once observer and participant in a staged scene. Its components recall the miscellaneous displays of regional arts and crafts museums, but they could also be props for a Surrealist set. Hammer Projects: Enrico David is organized by Allegra Pesenti, curator, Grunwald Center for the Graphic Arts.

J. Paul Getty Museum - Getty Center in Los Angeles

Early Cambodian Bronzes: The Pre-Angkor Period

Khmer sculptors produced figural images of divinities in response to the international religions—Hinduism and Buddhism—that had arrived in mainland Southeast Asia by the fifth century. Indian traders and traveling priests brought knowledge of Shiva, Vishnu, and other Hindu gods. Buddhist texts and images carried by Chinese pilgrims who passed through the region on their way to and from holy sites in India also had an influence on the Khmer.

The Angkor Period

The Angkor period began in the year 802. Khmer rulers established a sequence of capitals in the Angkor region, culminating in the walled complex of Angkor Thom built by Jayavarman VII (ruled 1181–about 1218). Successive monarchs built temples and monasteries to honor their ancestors and their own reigns—the monuments that visitors to Angkor see today.

Bronzes in the Reign of Jayavarman VII

Jayavarman VII (ruled 1181–about 1218) decisively shifted the prevailing religious balance in which the Buddha was worshipped alongside Hindu gods. He positioned the Buddha at the apex of a system that included Hindu gods in subsidiary roles, and the bronze images cast during his reign reflect this transformation.

This exhibition is organized by the Arthur M. Sackler Gallery, Smithsonian Institution, in collaboration with the J. Paul Getty Museum, Los Angeles, and the National Museum of Cambodia. Major funding is provided by the Henry Luce Foundation and the Leon Levy Foundation.

Visitor Information: With two locations, the Getty Villa in Malibu and the Getty Center in Los Angeles, the J. Paul Getty Museum serves a wide variety of audiences through its expanded range of exhibitions and programming in the visual arts.

Theodora Van Runkle Collection of Ancient Jewelry

This collection of ancient gold earrings contain a representative cross-section of the goldsmithing artisan styles from most of the Near Eastern cultures ranging from 4,000 B.C. To 1300 A.D., a period of nearly 4,000 years.

For convenience, the collection is divided into several sub-collections according to culture and/or technology. All the earrings are made of very high-karat solid gold. We'd like to thank Henry Anavian for helping to make this collection available. And we'd like to especially thank Theodora Van Runkle for her generous donation of this collection for the Theodora Van Runkle Hall of Ancient Gold.

Museum of Ancient and Modern Art

A GEM IN THE FOOTHILLS

The Museum of Ancient and Modern Art is a multi-faceted museum tucked away in the Sierra foothills. Under the imaginative and creative guidance of a dynamic staff of volunteers, it is meeting the challenges of the twenty-first century with success and self-assurance. MAMA is a tax-exempt non-profit educational organization which has been incorporated since 1981. The assembly of its diversified collection began almost twenty-five years ago. The Museum has so far operated exclusively from its own fund-raising efforts without the benefit of Federal or State funding. The Museum of Ancient and Modern Art is dedicated first and foremost to educating the public through a variety of services and programs, and second only to assembling a first rate collection of works of art worthy of preservation for posterity.

TREASURES OF EVERY KIND

MAMA is the proud owner of a prestigious collection of antiquities, in the form of marble, terracotta, bronze, silver, and gold. Its more modern collections focus on works on paper and important historical art books containing original etchings, engravings and woodcuts from 1529 on. Some of these books illustrate the history of printing and are a source of invaluable historical research. Equally remarkable is the Museum of Ancient and Modern Art's collection of African masks and statues representing over twenty different tribes from eight different countries. These have proved to be extremely appealing to visitors and are in constant demand.

VOLUNTEER STAFF

In its analysis of MAMA's performance, the Institute of Museum Services, a government body which evaluates museums for funding, made note of the quality of the volunteer staff and its contagious enthusiasm. It recently stated that MAMA stood out among other museums because of its volunteers. The IMS also recognized the originality and innovativeness of the ideas and concepts that guide MAMA.

GEMS OF THE MEDICI

April 14 - September 15, 2013

In the mid-1400s, many celebrated artists, goldsmiths, silversmiths and engravers were attracted by the abundance of wealth in the city of Florence, but the most important factor in this gathering of talent was the presence of the Medici family. For almost three hundred years, generation after generation of Medici dominated city affairs and steered the course of art history. It was the Medici family who funded the workshops of these artists and artisans, who commissioned and collected the masterpieces of art and antiquity. From founding father to the last Grand Duke, the immense power and wealth of this great dynasty was invested in its legendary collections, of which the collection renowned as the Gems of the Medici is perhaps the finest in the world.

Gems of the Medici, a world premier exhibition, highlights some of the oldest and most unique pieces of the Medici collections including antiquities dating from the 1st Century BCE as well as a cornelian which was part of the Seal of Nero.

Pre-Columbian Exhibits Ongoing
Pre-Columbian art from Mexico and Central America displayed in a series of galleries communicates the power and sophistication of the mysterious cultures that rose and fell in ancient America. Emphasis is placed on the ceramic and stone arts of West Mexico, Costa Rica and Panamá. A gallery devoted to the famous "Limestone Tomb of Lord Pacal" includes a lifesize reproduction of the elaborately decorated and highly symbolic limestone sarcophagus excavated at the pyramid in the Mayan City of Palenque in Chiapas, Mexico. Other works of art from the ancient Mayan civilization complete the exhibit.

Over 50 examples of ornately designed and created silver bracelets, necklaces and decorative ornaments compliment and complete the exhibition of late 19th and 20th century Miao regalia.

Michael Cooper: A Sculptural Odyssey, 1968-2011
Opening April 6, 2013!

The Museum of Craft and Design is thrilled to present our first traveling exhibition, works by Bay Area artist Michael Cooper: A Sculptural Odyssey, 1968 – 2011. Exhibiting a striking selection of more than twenty-three exquisitely crafted and thought provoking pieces, Cooper showcases over four decades of his life’s work. A true testament to both form and function, Cooper is best known for his seductively complex and remarkably mobile metal and wood works. Ranging from pistol-packing tricycles, to fantastical furniture and highly stylized motorcycles, this awe-inspiring collection is not to be missed.   

The fully illustrated catalog is now available online and in our Museum Store.  

Guest Curator: Harold B. Nelson

This exhibition has been made possible by a generous grant from the Windgate Charitable Foundation. Friends who have made this exhibition and its supporting catalog possible include San Francisco Grants for the Arts/San Francisco Hotel Tax Fund, Bobbi and Fletcher Benton, Ross Periodicals, Inc., Cycle City, Ltd., Marc Adams: Marc Adams School of Woodwork, and John and Diane Pashlik. Related programming has been made possible through funding from the Collectors of Wood Art.

Royal Treasures from the Louvre: Louis XIV to Marie-Antoinette
November 17, 2012 - March 17, 2013

The Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco present an unparalleled collection of decorative arts from the Musée du Louvre, Paris, including some of the most exquisite treasures of the French monarchy from the time of Louis XIV until the Revolution of 1789. Royal Treasures from the Louvre: Louis XIV to Marie-Antoinette is the story of French royal patronage, and the showcased objects in the exhibition are nothing less than dazzling:  the Gobelins manufactory’s masterwork mosaic tabletop of semiprecious stones; the gemmes de la couronne, precious hardstone vases collected by Louis XIV; the présents du Roi, including diamond-and-gem snuffboxes made for the royal family to present as gifts; personal items made for Louis XV’s private use or for use by his mistresses, Madame de Pompadour and Madame du Barry, including exquisite Sèvres porcelain and silver; and Marie-Antoinette’s personal collection of precious vases made of agate and other hardstones.

Many of the objects in the exhibition have never been shown in the United States and indeed, several have never left France. Royal Treasures from the Louvre: Louis XIV to Marie-Antoinette Is an unparalleled collection of decorative objects from France’s most illustrious royalty, direct from the Musée du Louvre, and displayed for the first time in the United States in this exclusive presentation.

MUSEUM OF BROKEN RELATIONSHIPS

February 14 – May 26, 2013

Please join us for the opening reception on February 14, 2013 –  Valentine’s Day.
5:30pm members preview
6:30-10pm free public reception

BMoCA invites your contribution towards the exhibition of the Museum of Broken Relationships in Colorado as a participatory aspect to this continuing international project. All donations must be received by February 3rd and will be on view as part of the exhibition at BMoCA, after which they will travel to Zagreb, where they will be kept in the collection of the Museum of Broken Relationships. For instructions on how to donate your item, please click here.

In a throwaway consumer society, where everything is disposable, upgradable, and replaceable, items that remind us of past relationships rank particularly low on our personal value scale. The common response or advice for dealing with a breakup is to dispose of everything that reminds us of the other person and to get over him or her as quickly as possible, with the fact that the relationship did not last taken as self-evidence that this was not “the right one.” But as more and more people experience several significant relationships during their lifetime, with second and third marriages becoming increasingly common, we begin to acknowledge that our expectations and needs change as much as we do as we live longer, more educated, and self-determined lives. Simultaneously, the notion that the person we spent part of our life with was just “the wrong one” and should be erased from our memory becomes less plausible.

So what to do with the formerly cherished objects that carried so much personal meaning and emotions when the relationship is over? Demoted to the mundane reality of their original purpose or stripped of their ceremonial significance, these remnants are reduced to their often-negligible material value. Even precious stones and luxury items become useless or painful reminders of the hope and aspirations they once symbolized. Holding on to them can keep us hostage to a no longer desirable past, while disposing of them may seem like treason against our emotional history.

This was the conundrum faced by Olinka Vištica and Dražen Grubišić when they reached the end of their relationship. By adding the collections of their friends to their personal items, they first created a traveling exhibition and eventually a permanent home in Zagreb, Croatia – the Museum of Broken Relationships. Here, all are invited to contribute their love legacy to the museum’s permanent holdings to establish a collective social document of lost love. Overcoming the often stigmatized and isolated experience of breakups, each contribution is validated with dignity and the shared appreciation of a past relationship.

C. Paul Jennewein: An Usher for a New American Style, Works from the Tampa Museum of Art

Saturday, April 27, 2013  

April 27, 2013 – July 20, 2013

Dorothy Jenkins Gallery and Gallery II

C. Paul Jennewein (1890-1978) was a highly regarded American architectural sculptor of the mid-20th century. He immigrated to the United States from Germany in 1907 and within four years of his arrival began receiving important national and international art commissions that drew upon his skills as an ornamental sculptor and as a painter. He is widely recognized for introducing the Art Deco style into American architecture.

Jennewein studied sculpture at the Art Students League in New York and won a three-year scholarship to study at the American Academy in Rome in 1916. The artist drew heavily from the art he studied during his four years in Italy, particularly mythological subject matter and the classical Greco-Roman tradition.

Following Jennewein’s death, more than 2,000 words from his studio were donated to the Tampa Bay Art Center (now Tampa Museum of Art) by his family. This exhibition features some of the pieces from Tampa Museum of Art’s permanent collection.

 Member’s Reception: 6p-8:30p, Friday, April 26, 2013

The reception is FREE to members and $10 for guests.

Jane Manus: Geometry of Space
Dec 1, 2012 to Apr 26, 2013
 
Event Summary
Opening Reception:

November 30, 6-8pm

Jane Manus shares a vision to create new and dynamic spaces with abstract, yet solid form. The exhibition at the Armory art Center will feature six of her large-scale works placed, as they are meant to be seen, in the outdoor sculpture garden. Though concrete and heavy in themselves, Manus's sculptures are artfully connected planes of line and geometric shape, joined as to invoke a complex, shifting array of transparent spaces and paradoxically unsubstantial solid forms. Her work actively engages her audience, as the shapes and spaces form and reform as the viewer moves closer to them, further away and around them. While seemingly at odds with their setting, Manus's sculptures are meant to be seen in the ever changing conditions of nature. her work forms a relationship with the play of shadow and the passage of time.

The Armory Art Center is Located at:
1700 Parker Avenue
West Palm Beach, Florida 33401
(1/2 Mile south of the Kravis Center)

MCA Chicago Plaza Project: Martin Creed

Aug 2012–May 2013

In early August 2012, London-based artist Martin Creed (British, b. 1968) debuted an ambitious new sculpture created especially for the MCA plaza. Made up of white neon lettering, Work No. 1357, MOTHERS is the largest kinetic sculpture Creed has created to date: measuring forty-eight feet wide and more than twenty feet tall, it steadily rotates a full 360 degrees. This substantial public artwork is a companion piece to the artist’s yearlong residency at the MCA, Martin Creed Plays Chicago, which blurs the lines between the inside and the outside of the museum and furthers Creed’s engagement with the city at large.
