Dawson Cole Fine Art Presents

American Masters Richard MacDonald Chuck Close Wayne Thiebaud John Singer Sargent

Richard MacDonald in Studio

T

his year marks the 20th Anniversary of the premier gallery in Laguna Beach: Dawson Cole Fine Art. For the last twenty years visitors to Southern, CA have experienced this world-class gallery, and have enjoyed the uniquely Californian ambience of its beautiful sculpture garden. With locations in Laguna Beach, Carmel and Palm Desert, Dawson Cole Fine Art has established their reputation as the leading West Coast destination for contemporary figurative sculpture, paintings, and important prints.

Visitors will be inspired by the artful presentation of an extensive collection of bronze figurative sculpture by noted American sculptor, Richard MacDonald. Featuring a comprehensive selection of the sculptor’s collected works, from iconic, museum-represented pieces, to the artist’s recent works, which can be seen here first—this gallery is at the vanguard of the Neo-Figurative movement led by Richard MacDonald.

Adding rich layers to the visual and collecting experience is the expertly selected presentation of significant drawings, prints, and works on paper by

American and European masters. The collection of a focused, curated collection of Early Modernism and West Coast Regionalism sets the gallery apart: offering works by Chuck Close, Richard MacDonald, Wayne Thiebaud, Donald Sultan, Jim Dine, Jian Wang, Jim Lamb, Tom Betts, Carolyn Reynolds, and James Galindo among others. Recently recognized by Modern Luxury Magazine, the gallery was selected as the Top Gallery in the “Best of OC” for two consecutive years. Dawson Cole Fine Art has established itself as a supporter of the local arts and wider community with many charitable efforts to benefit the local art students of the Laguna College of Art & Design, the Boys and Girls Club of Laguna

LACMA, Moholy-Nagy: Future Present.the first comprehensive retrospective of the work of lászló moholynagy (1895–1946) in the united states in nearly 50 years, this long overdue presentation reveals a utopian artist who believed that art could work hand-in-hand with technology for the betterment of humanity. Moholy-Nagy: Future Present examines the career of this pioneering painter, photographer, sculptor, and filmmaker as well as graphic, exhibition, and stage designer, who was also an influential teacher at the bauhaus, a prolific writer, and later the founder of chicago’s institute of design. the exhibition includes more than 250 works in all media from public and private collections across europe and the united states, some of which have never before been shown publicly in the u.s. also on display is a large-scale installation, room of the present, a contemporary construction of an exhibition space originally conceived by moholynagy in 1930. though never realized during his lifetime, the room of the present illustrates moholy’s belief in the power of images and various means by which to disseminate them—a highly relevant paradigm in today’s constantly shifting and evolving technological world.

tions of black people. marshall, a child of the civil rights era, set out to redress this absence. this exhibition, marshall’s first major retrospective in the united states, contains nearly 80 paintings. marshall’s strategy was three fold. First, as a young artist he decided to paint only black figures. he was unequivocal in his pursuit of black beauty. his figures are an unapologetic ebony black, and they occupy the paintings with a sense of authority and belonging. second, marshall worked to make a wide variety of images populated with black people. this led him to make exquisite portraits, lush landscape paintings, everyday domestic interiors, and paintings that depict historical events, all featuring black subjects as if their activities were completely and utterly normal. third, marshall concentrated on painterly mastery as a fundamental strategy. by mastering the art of representational and figurative painting, during a period when neither was in vogue, marshall produced a body of

Breaking News: Turning the Lens on Mass Media over the past 50 years, artists have increasingly turned to newspapers, magazines, and televised news programs as rich sources of inspiration. this exhibition explores how artists have looked at and commented on news images, from the vietnam war in the 1960s to the so-called “war on terror” in the 2000s. much of the work is political; all of it is personal. through photographs and videos, these artists have juxtaposed, mimicked, and appropriated media elements to transform ephemeral news into lasting works of art.

Started by owners Dave Thomas and Kevin Mundt , AREO specializes in unique gifts and home dĂŠcor, hand selected bath accessories, a vast collection of greeting cards and books, handmade jewelry and everything you could dream of for a candlelit home. Dave Thomas searches for unique and unusual merchandise based on their aesthetic

Adding to Our Dreams for 25 Years and value. New items arrive weekly, finds from local artisans or flea markets abroad have led AREO to become known for its quality and distinctive selection. “We opened AREO during the last really deep recession in California” Dave mused. It was August 1, 1992, twentyfive years ago. “While customers thought we were crazy opening at the time…fortunately they found interesting things to buy. Many are still faithful and supportive customers.” “Edgy” and “Japanesque” describes AREO’s earlier style, over the years, more variety has been added, but still with a consistent aesthetic and always carrying on the trustworthy AREO style. Industrial display fixtures of corrugated

aluminum, steel, and wood on cement floors offered a balanced juxtaposition of the soft earthy textures and patinas of the merchandise. With a wide range of styles and products, décor found at AREO compliments the styling’s of contemporary homes, Spanish abodes and beach bungalows alike. From day one, AREO has offered its complimentary signature gift-wrap: a hand stamped craft box, satin ribbon and French gold wax seal. Stressing customer service, AREO has also been quietly generous to Laguna Beach, its charities, nonprofits and continued on pg. 42

Maxfield Parrish, Daybreak, 1922

Maxfield

PARRISH:

A God of the Golden Age of Illustration by Joy Shannon

Maxfield Parrish: Before Norman Rockwell captured the American cultural psyche in his illustrations, there was Mayfield Parrish, whom Rockwell

LOCALARTS.COM

called “one of my gods.” Parrish was a pillar in the “Golden Age of illustration” beginning in the 1880s, which was facilitated by new printing technology and less expensive paper production. Both Europe and the United States experienced this flourishing of artful popular illustration in print form, such as in magazines and children’s books, though the styles differed by


continent. English illustrators such as Aubrey Beardsley and Arthur Rackham came from a PreRaphaelite and Arts and Crafts tradition, while American illustrators such as Howard Pyle and Maxfield Parrish came from more of a Neoclassical background. In the United States this flourishing of the arts was encouraged by the railroads, which newly connected travel and trade within the continent from east to west, while industrialism generally increased wealth within the expanding population. Magazines such as Collier’s and Harper’s Bazaar capitalized upon this cultural landscape, building widely-distributed magazines, which now needed beautiful artwork for their pages. New printing technology allowed for the subtle nuances of a painter’s palette, when during the century prior to this, print communication was reproduced in black and white, often solely with text, with black and white woodblocks or etchings as the common forms of illustration. With photography, as well as the processes to reproduce them on the mass scale, still in its beginning stages of development, the illustrator became king. It was during this era that Parrish’s work first began to thrive, with the artist creating paintings of

mythical landscapes and whimsical nymphets for Harper’s Bazaar, Collier’s and Scribner’s magazines, along with his famous illustrations for books including Arabian Nights in 1909 and Poems of Childhood in 1904. Parrish’s illustrations for the D.M. Ferry Seed Company in 1916 and 1923, among others, brought his work to the American audience on the vast scale. rguably Parrish’s most famous work “Daybreak,” which features two elegant dryads lazing within a Neoclassical landscape, has influenced countless popular culture images, from music to film. As seen in the romantic whimsy of pieces like “Daybreak,” “Stars” and “Ecstasy,” what Parrish’s work seems to capture is a longing for innocence and the purity of uncorrupted beauty, represented by his arresting landscapes populated by youthful, and nearly androgynous, female forms. Known for his use of vibrant colors, even a cobalt blue paint color has been coined “Parrish blue.”

A

Parrish’s unique style was- and is still- so popular that he enjoyed a generous living from the proceeds of his illustration work throughout his life. Additionally, during the last few years of the artist’s life, before he died in 1966 at the age of 95, his work experienced a renaissance of interest during the 1960s.

Each of the many carefully crafted miniature drawings, paintings and sculptures in Exquisite Abandon offers a voyeuristic gaze into quotidian memories and dreams, many appearing as eerily dashed or in decay, but always compelling and rendered with meticulous proficiency. Curated by LCAD’s Chair of Fine Arts, Hope Railey. www.lcad.edu
