the feitelson fellowship, 2011

What: The Feitelson Arts Fellowship, 2011
When: May 19 thru July 3, 2011
Where: The Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery, LAMAG
Featuring: Artists early in their career—including CB2 team member, Nuttaphol Ma

photo by: Clinton Steeds The Lorser Feitelson and Helen Lundeberg Feitelson Arts Fellowship is awarded through the Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery Associates, LAMAGA, a nonprofit, tax-exempt organization that supports the Municipal Art Gallery at Barnsdall Park.

Conceived by the Feitelsons, seminal Los Angeles Modernist painters, and their friends, as a way to give encouragement to artists early in their careers by offering financial grants; it is issued in conjunction with the City of Los Angeles, C.O.L.A., Individual Artist Fellowships to twelve exemplary mid-career international artists.

Congratulations and good luck to all participating artists.

…for the 2011 Feitelson Arts Fellowship, multi-disciplinary artist—and CB2 Santa Monica team member—Nuttaphol Ma combined references to Sam Cooke’s ‘A Change is Gonna Come’ with a performance where he, Ma, set sail with a boat over his head on May Day from Badwater Basin to the trailhead of Mt. Whitney.
…the approximately 130-mile personal odyssey meditates on the ebbs and flows of our existence, the power and the abuse of power subjected upon the powerless, the dreams of leaving and the dreams of roots.  Ma’s installation distills the performance to a two channel video projected onto sewn fabric walls. 
…to learn more about the installation, check out Ma’s website or experience it by visiting the gallery.
…thanks to julio, CB2 sample handler, for the heads up on this one.

rafael soriano exhibit: miami

photo by: Milosz1What: Rafael Soriano: Some Thoughts on His Painting
When: Friday, January 28, 7-10pm
Where: The Storer Auditorium, Universtiy of Miami School of Business

What: Rafael Soriano: Other Worlds Within, a Sixty Year Retrospective
When: January 29 thru March 27, 2011
Where: Lowe Art Museum, University of Miami

Miami resident Rafael Soriano is one of the most recognized painters of not only Cuba, but also of Latin American modernists. His abstract works poetically combine light and shadows, form and space, to spark the curiosity of our unconscious minds.

Born in 1920 in Cidra, Cuba, Soriano expressed an early inclination for painting and completed his studies at the prestigious Escuela Nacional de Bellas Artes, San Alejandro.

His resume includes a degree in 1943 as Professor of Painting, Drawing and Sculpture and as a visual arts teacher for almost 20 years near his home town. He was one of the founders, and later Director, of the Escuela de Bellas Artes de Matanzas, with a reputation as the most important art school in Cuba outside of Havana.

Exhibits of Soriano’s work began in Cuba as early as 1947 and didn’t seem to skip a beat when he went into exile with his family in 1962 and settled in Miami. This latest is a broad retrospective as the former U of M teacher exhibits 60 years worth of his life’s work.
