Jack Whitten: Five Decades of Painting

  • chinese sincerity web 0

For five decades, Jack Whitten (b. 1939, Bessemer, AL) has kept time through his innovative studio process. In his canvases, he explores the possibilities of paint, the role of the artist, and the allure of material essence. As a child of the segregated south, he bears witness to expressions of evil and the resilience of the human spirit. As a diligent formalist, Whitten explores and exploits the newest acrylic and dry pigment media, the register of the image, and the edge of the canvas. As the New York artist, schooled in the sixties and maturing in the seventies, he balances on the fulcrum of the century that was and the century to come. He is an artist of his moment due precisely to his respect for the past and commitment to the present. Whitten creates in the moment in order to harness the essence of matter. From his first spectral canvases, as a graphic trace of a haunted soul, to his recent app for Obama, a key for complex, contemporary life, Whitten’s poetic and physically compelling compositions capture what is needed, what is left, what is remembered, and what is next. Jack Whitten: Five Decades of Painting surveys this enduring artist’s career with approximately 60 canvasses from the mid-1960s to the present.

St. Jude's Life Time Tri Oceanside

  • st jude logo

Imagine a race where Hope marks the finish line. Make it a reality when you join St. Jude in the fight against childhood cancer and other deadly diseases through the Life Time Tri Oceanside. Swim, bike and run as you TRI all you can to support the lifesaving work being done at St. Jude. Participate as an individual or form a relay team to cross the finish line together for the kids! Not only will you be saving the life of a child, but there are also small rewards we can offer such as “race for free”. For more information please contact I 714.489.1081.

 http://www.oceansidetri.com/oceanside/st-jude/

When you fundraise for St. Jude, your support helps us guarantee that no family ever receives a bill from St. Jude—for anything—because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.

Because the majority of St. Jude funding comes from the public, St. Jude has the freedom to focus on what matters most – saving kids regardless of the financial situation. This means doctors spend less time on paperwork and more time on lifesaving care. This means scientists spend less time on grant applications and more time on uncovering the next big breakthrough.

We won’t stop until no child dies of cancer—and we need your help.

Concours d’Elegance

  • 1601028 636264069763071 797556013 n

THE JEWEL & THE CONCOURS

It is fitting that when translated into Spanish, La Jolla means “the jewel,” because La Jolla truly is the diamond of the West Coast. La Jolla has become the embodiment of luxury, class and style in San Diego. The chic allure of La Jolla’s avenues has drawn the finest automobiles to this coastal town for the tenth year at the La Jolla Concours d’Elegance and The La Jolla Motor Car Classic at the Concours.

The La Jolla Concours d’Elegance features various types of fine automobile gems. Past years have showcased horseless carriages, Italian marques, British marques, Woodies, 50’s classics, American sports cars (with a salute to GM on their 100th anniversary), and the automobiles of Carroll Shelby. Spectators from all over the nation come to the breathtaking shores of La Jolla to view their favorite classics. This year, the La Jolla Concours d’Elegance will be tipping its hat to some of the world’s finest Classics: Rolls Royce, Bentley, Bugatti, Cadillac, and of course Duesenberg. We hope once again that if diamonds are forever, then cars are timeless.

CONCOURS D’ELEGANCE

According to Webster, “Concours” comes from the French, and means “a crowd or confluence of things; also a park promenade.” The term conjures up romantic visions of beautiful women in haute couture in a park-like setting surrounded by sparkling coaches, glistening groomed horses, gorgeous flowers, champagne, fine art and sculpture, and later, by the finest automotive art.
