When ART Becomes Your Voice

By

When ART Becomes Your Voice: Art is the silent, still thing that sits on a wall for millions of strangers to stare on. But when art becomes your voice because it can silence the fears swarming inside of you like an infestation, it no longer is a thing.

REVEALED in Art

By

REVEALED in Art: Art is a revelation. A triumph of spirit and the fundamental core of humanity. Our entire history is revealed in every form of creativity from every corner of the world and it is that precise idea that fostered the Sofitel’s latest Art Exhibition. With an exhibition of photography like nothing you will likely ever see again (unless you go to Barcelona or Paris), the awaiting world is invited in to see the artists simply being … real.

Sam Doyle was born in 1906 on Saint Helena Island, South Carolina, the center of the region’s Gullah community, where African influences thrived. He began making paintings on cast-off sheet metal and wood panels in 1944; most were portraits of people and events important to his community. He displayed the paintings to the public in the yard of his clapboard house.

In the heart of Downtown, an evening of live music, art, cocktails, food, and a crowd abundant in sophistication gathered.

The Orange County Museum of Art opened its doors this past weekend in Newport Beach to the aptly titled, yet deceptively simplistic, Sarkisian & Sarkisian: a father and son co-exhibition of works spanning a combined fifty years, from as early as the 1960s to today. Originally thought up as a survey of one Peter Sarkisian’s video installation work over the last twenty years, it was decided by OCMA Interim Director and Chief Curator Dan Cameron that parallels seen between Sarkisian’s work and that of his father, Paul, warranted a side-by-side unveiling of the two masters’ crafts, in a collective of astonishing pieces that perform double helixes around one another without ever really colliding or crossing paths.

LA Art Show 2014

By

LOS ANGELES, CA – Art really is an expansive platform to which someone, anyone, is able to find a piece of themselves reflected in what they see. Sometimes it takes the darkest parts of who we are and turns it into something beautiful and once in a while, if we are lucky enough, we find a piece of art so exquisitely revealing, we can’t help but find ourselves lost in it. Art is unlike any other medium in that it is, outside of books, the most tangible form of visual inspiration
