BWW Reviews: Gripping Production of OTHER DESERT CITIES Closes Mad Horse SeasonBWW Reviews: Gripping Production of OTHER DESERT CITIES Closes Mad Horse Season
by Carla Maria Verdino-Süllwold - May 4, 2015

South Portland's Mad Horse Theatre Company closes its 2014-2015 season with a gripping rendition of Jon Robin Baitz's 2011 drama, Other Desert Cities. The play explores the painful bonds and conflicts in a family whose relationships have are strained by differences in political thinking, by the loss of their oldest son, and by their daughter's desire to recount the truth as she sees it. The drama, set largely in 2004 in the bellicose post 9/11 America of George W. Bush, is about the fine line between acting and reality, the dark depths of deception, and the devastating, yet healing consequences of discovering the truth. (more...)

Ocean Galleries Presents The Art of John Lennon, 6/18Ocean Galleries Presents The Art of John Lennon, 6/18
by BWW News Desk - May 12, 2015

Ocean Galleries is honored to present an exhibition of the extraordinary works of John Lennon. An unparalleled collection, 'The Art of John Lennon' will be on exhibit and available for acquisition from Thursday, June 18 through Monday, June 22, 2015, with Ocean Galleries open daily from 10:00 AM through 10:00 PM. Special receptions with the Collection Curator, Lynne Clifford, will take place from 7:00 PM until 10:00 PM on Friday, June 19, and Saturday, June 20, and from 1:00 PM until 4:00 PM on Sunday, June 21. Ms. Clifford, an authority on the artwork of John Lennon, will be in the gallery and available to the public; speaking on the exhibited works and providing insight into the history and stories behind the artwork. All events are complimentary and open to the public. Ms. Yoko Ono Lennon, who created the program, had the specific intent of helping local non-profit organizations in each city the exhibit visits. As such, Ocean Galleries will be asking guests to make a $5 or more donation to the Community FoodBank of New Jersey. In his art, John Lennon, the legendary musician, songwriter, poet, philosopher, and artist, delivered a consistent message - peace and love. Art was actually his first love, as he began drawing long before he owned a guitar. John Lennon's artwork celebrates human love and communication - two themes at the heart of his contribution to the art of the twentieth century. His iconic Self-Portrait image has become the cornerstone of the collection. These posthumous, limited edition prints are adapted from Lennon's original drawings. The art has been selected from rare archival sketches and is representative of his whimsical and thought provoking imagery. Each print is reproduced utilizing the sophisticated and detailed standards typical for archival fine art printing processes, guided, approved, and hand-signed by Yoko Ono. In many ways, John Lennon was truly a renaissance man whose insights and perspective helped shape the sensibility of the contemporary mind. Born John Winston Lennon on October 9, 1940 in Liverpool, England, he died tragically on December 8, 1980. He married Yoko Ono at Gibraltar on March 20, 1969. On March 29, 1969, John and Yoko commenced their famous bed-in for peace at the Amsterdam Hilton. While music will be remembered as his most popular art form, he loved both literature and his visual art, studying at Liverpool Art Institute from 1957-1960. He penned and illustrated three books: 'In His Own Write' (1964), 'A Spaniard in the Works' (1965), and 'Skywriting By Word of Mouth' (1987). As early as 1969, John began moving toward a return to visual art. He was primarily interested in drawing and favored the creative loose sketch, working in pen and ink. In 1969, as a wedding gift for Yoko, John drew the Bag One Portfolio, a chronicle of their wedding ceremony, honeymoon, and their plea for world peace, the Bed-in. The suite also contained erotic sketches. The Bag One Series was first published and exhibited in January 1970 at the London Art Gallery. On the second day, the exhibition was closed by Scotland Yard and the erotic lithographs confiscated. During 1986, Yoko Ono decided to share John's artistic genius with the public by publishing the first in a series of prints entitled This is My Story Both Humble and True, followed with Bag One Continued..., Dakota Days, Karuizawa Series, and Japan Through John Lennon's Eyes. These works are a commentary on John's everyday life, his wife, Yoko, and their son, Sean. The drawings are whimsical yet poetic, loving Portraits of their years together. Drawn by one of the most important cultural figures of our time, these illustrations celebrate human love and communication - two themes at the heart of John Lennon's contribution to the art of the twentieth century. As a teenager in Liverpool, England, John Lennon became involved in music, forming his first band, the Quarrymen, which by 1960 had evolved into The Beatles, the most commercially successful band in the history of popular music. Lennon was a visual artist before he picked up his first guitar or wrote his first song. He attended the prestigious Liverpool Art Institute (1957-1960). He continued to draw throughout his life. Lennon's primary medium was line drawing, in either pen, pencil, or Japanese sumi ink. He not only penned, but also sketched the drawings that became illustrations for three bestselling books. In the years that followed, Lennon expressed himself once again through drawing, this time reflecting his love for his family. Since 1989, Bag One Arts has published a series of limited edition prints of his work, which have traveled throughout the world. The graphic collection has traveled throughout the U.S., England, Spain, Italy, Japan, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Hong Kong, Singapore, and Manila. (more...)

Pérez Art Museum Miami Acquires Ruth Dealy Seminal PaintingPérez Art Museum Miami Acquires Ruth Dealy Seminal Painting
by BWW News Desk - May 12, 2015

Yellow Peril Gallery is pleased to announce that Pérez Art Museum Miami recently acquired 'Morning After,' an early painting by internationally known painter Ruth Dealy, a Providence-based artist for nearly five decades. Dealy is one of a group of Rhode Island artists - including Harry Callahan, Stephan Brigidi, Richard Fleishner, Malcolm Grear, Bunny Harvey, Aaron Siskind, Hugh Townley, and Dale Chihuly - who became known as The Rhode Island School based on their emergence in the 1970s as artists from Rhode Island School of Design. The acquisition was made possible by a generous gift from Dr. William and Nancy Tsiaras. Dealy recently commented on 'Morning After': I painted 'Morning After' when I was twenty-seven years old. I had a studio over a bar, and the music played into the night. Although the title might be taken to refer to waking up after the end of a relationship or a night of drinking, I was referring to growing up. I was truly leaving my younger identity to walk the long and (I was afraid) lonely road of the artist. Now, forty-one years later, I am so grateful for that moment, and it still resonates as if it were today. That awakening has led me on a long walk through a dense woods to an opening in the field. About Ruth Dealy Ruth Dealy is an artist who has lived and worked in Providence, Rhode Island for 48 years. A recipient of several grants and awards, including the coveted Pell Award for Excellence in the Arts, Dealy is interested in the tension between what is seen and what is felt. Her paintings, both self-Portraits and landscapes, are 'meditations on ways of seeing and reproducing that seeing, not exactly, but honestly.' For more information about Ruth Dealy, visit ruthdealy.com. About Pérez Art Museum Miami Pérez Art Museum Miami (PAMM) promotes artistic expression and the exchange of ideas, advancing public knowledge and appreciation of art, architecture, and design, and reflecting the diverse community of its pivotal geographic location at the crossroads of the Americas. This mission is reflected in the initial installation of its permanent collection of art from the World War II era to the present, AMERICANA, at the new home of the 29-year-old South Florida institution formerly known as Miami Art Museum (MAM). Designed by world-renowned architects Herzog & de Meuron, the facility opened in Downtown Miami's Museum Park on December 4, 2013, is a state-of-the-art model for sustainable museum design and progressive programming.

The Indianapolis Museum of Contemporary Art Presents OLD ERIK CAME WONDERING OR THROW STEEL OVER THEIR HEADS, 5/1-7/23The Indianapolis Museum of Contemporary Art Presents OLD ERIK CAME WONDERING OR THROW STEEL OVER THEIR HEADS, 5/1-7/23

Erik Ullanderson has no filter. His work mirrors the consumption of visual cultural in contemporary life and reflects endless scrolls of Instagram feeds, Tumblr blogs and Google search returns mixed with personal artifacts and memories. While each image holds its own hypnotic sway, they come into focus upon viewing them as a body of work, a constellation of contradictions and associations, which create a unique visual language. Underlying the over-stimulus of this visual barrage is a self-deprecating Midwestern work ethic. This work is the product of treating the studio practice as a chore, a necessary and endless task that must be repeated and refined. The resulting work is direct, oozing honesty, rawness, humor and a passion for the creative process.  (more...)

BWW Reviews: South Coast Rep Stages World Premiere of Rajiv Joseph's MR. WOLFBWW Reviews: South Coast Rep Stages World Premiere of Rajiv Joseph's MR. WOLF
by Michael L. Quintos - Apr 27, 2015

South Coast Repertory's latest offering, MR. WOLF---now on stage in Costa Mesa through May 3---is a high-quality presentation of an intriguingly audacious if not quite fully-gestated new world premiere play from Pulitzer Prize finalist Rajiv Joseph, the playwright behind the celebrated BENGAL TIGER AT THE BAGHDAD ZOO. In Mr. Joseph's enticing new drama, the play employs a ripped-from-the-headlines plot that feels more like a stand-alone episode of any given TV procedural drama, which, unfortunately, by their very nature leaves very little room for real character development, yet provides enough juicy (and at times soapy) melodrama to pique an interested audience.
