Pablo Picasso CERAMICS at the Arlington Museum of Art

Pablo Picasso: Ceramics

THE ARLINGTON MUSEUM OF ART TO HOST AN EXHIBITION OF CERAMICS BY RENOWNED ARTIST PABLO PICASSO

Arlington, TXThe Arlington Museum of Art proudly announces its winter blockbuster exhibit, Pablo Picasso: Ceramics, featuring over 40 ceramics by renowned artist Pablo Picasso. The exhibit will be on display from November 12, 2016 through February 12, 2017. An opening reception for exhibit sponsors,

museum members, and special guests will be held Friday, November 11, 2016 from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m.
Internationally famed for his paintings, sculpture, and graphics, Pablo Picasso (1881-1973) was long intrigued by ceramics. After seeing the works of the Madoura potters at a crafts fair in 1946, Picasso negotiated with Georges and Suzanne Ramie, who operated the studio, to provide him with the opportunity to work with ceramics. From 1947-1971 the Ramies set aside space in their studio for Picasso to work whenever he pleased. In return, Picasso allowed the Ramies to make and sell editions of ceramic pieces he produced at Madoura, and to retain all profits. Picasso also made thousands of individual ceramic pieces. He kept virtually all of his own thrown pieces, most of which are now owned by his family or by museums.
Over the years, Picasso and the Madoura studio produced 633 different plates, bowls, vases and pitchers, in limited editions ranging from 25 – 500. Picasso’s involvement in producing the objects varied. Sometimes he made the clay molds used for designs, while other times he painted on plates or pitchers taken from the drying racks. Picasso and Madoura’s artisans then finished the prototypes and produced the editions.
Chris Hightower, Executive Director, said, “Pablo Picasso is one of the world’s most well-known artists, but most people know him for his paintings. We are excited to share another aspect of Picasso’s art to the North Texas community.”
The exhibit was curated by Gerald Nordland, noted author and independent curator, and former Director of the San Francisco Art Museum, The Milwaukee Art Museum, The Washington (D.C.) Gallery of Modern Art, and the Wight Gallery, UCLA. It was funded in part by a grant from the Arlington Cultural Tourism Council. For more information, visit ArlingtonMuseum.org. Admission tickets may be purchased at the door.

Vivian Maier Lost and Found opens May 21 at the AMA

VivianMaierLostFound

THE ARLINGTON MUSEUM OF ART TO HOST AN EXHIBITION OF

VIVIAN MAIER PHOTOGRAPHS

Arlington, TX – The Arlington Museum of Art
Most people first learned of Vivian Maier from the 2014 documentary film “Finding Vivian Maier”. In its latest exhibit, the Arlington Museum of Art introduces the mysterious life of Vivian Maier to North Texas for the first time. While working as a nanny, Maier secretly photographed life in Chicago and New York in the 1950’s and 60’s. Vivian Maier’s photographs have been exhibited internationally and have received significant critical attention.

Her work was discovered in a storage unit by John Maloof in 2007 at an auction house in Chicago. The discovery and subsequent acquisitions resulted in 150,000 negatives, over 3,000 vintage prints, hundreds of rolls of film, home movies, audio tape interviews, original cameras of Vivian Maier, documents and various other items. Her work included street life and architecture in New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, Manila, Bangkok, Beijing, Egypt, Italy, the American Southwest and dozens of other international cities.

Maier’s talent in capturing tender and poignant moments that highlights relationships between parents and children, the lives of the indigent and the forgotten and the elderly and women in cities that were experiencing social and political upheaval. The body of work by Maier demonstrates her inner passion for the underdog which explains helps to explain her own personal story while defining the direction for her art.
Executive Director, Chris Hightower, said, “We are proud to bring this artist’s work to Arlington for the North Texas region. Maier has the ability to capture a moment using light, motion and composition to express her thoughts on everyday life in the city. Her story is a fascinating one, but it is trumped by her unique talent that captured the essence of American life in the 1950’s and 60’s. I believe that her work speaks to us today because like Maier, Americans traditionally root for the underdog.”

The exhibit will be open from May 21 – August 21, 2016 and will include 50 silver gelatin prints of Vivian Maier’s images. Admission tickets will be available online at www.ArlingtonMuseum.org or may be purchased at the door.
