Project description

Political instability can result in unexpected and engaging art. It can influence the career of an individual artist throughout his life. The current upheaval in Ukraine and security concerns in neighboring European countries suggest echoes of the experiences of artists exhibited by browngrotta arts who lived in, fled or emigrated from repressive regimes. It also weighs on the minds of those working in surrounding countries. The German artist, Heidrun Schimmel says that living in a country, united and secure within NATO since 1989, “it is now difficult for us to learn: … everything hangs by a thread… “
The approximately 50 artists in the exhibition reflect diverse perspectives and experiences. Art Allies: Works from NATO-linked countries will include works of art created during the occupation in the 1960s, 70s and 80s, works of art by those who left Hungary, Romania and Spain during the occupation, and works by other artists who left Russia in later years. Gyöngy Laky’s family, for example, escaped from Soviet-occupied Hungary after World War II – to Austria and then America, experiences that are reflected in his politically themed works. Adela Akers’ family left Franco’s Spain, first for Cuba, then for the United States. In the 1960s and early 1970s, Ritzi Jacobi’s expressive tapestry work, abstract in nature, enabled him to circumvent the Romanian government’s preference for academic and figurative art that supported communist ideology.
Other artists in the exhibition from Eastern Europe, including Jolanta Owidzka, Zofia Butrymowicz, Anna Urbanowicz-Krowacka and Krystyna Wojtyna-Drouet from Poland and Luba Krejci and Jan Hladik from Czechoslovakia, were introduced to American audiences in the 1960s to 1980s by Chicago gallerists. Jacques and Anne Baruch who conducted their work outside countries with oppressive regimes. On August 20, 1968, for example, the Baruchs left Prague after meeting with artists, just five hours before Soviet tanks rolled into the city and brought a brief period of democratic reforms to an abrupt end. Allies for Art: Work from NATO-related Countries will also include works created by artists currently working in Europe, including Gudrun Pagter from Denmark, Åse Ljones from Norway, Włodmierz Cygan from Poland, and artists new to the browngrotta arts, including Esmé Hofman from the Netherlands, Anneke Klein from Denmark and Baiba Osite from Latvia.
The exhibition will be accompanied by a color catalog, which will include an essay by Kate Bonansinga, director of the School of Art, College of Design, Architecture, Art, and Planning at the University of Cincinnati, Ohio.

‘In a Ligurian Garden’ by Henry Herbert La Thangue (1859-1929) has recently been rediscovered in Yorkshire, having been passed down from the Prince-Smith family, textile machinery makers of Keighley, West Yorkshire.

Henry Herbert La Thangue RA (1859-1929) was a leading exponent of British Impressionism, which depicted the rural ideal, first in Sussex and later in the unspoiled gardens of the French and Italian Riviera.

Register to our daily newsletter

The current work hung at the Royal Academy in 1908, together with its companion image ‘Ligurian Flowers’, now in the Blackburn Art Gallery. Ligurian gardens became a major theme of his work before the outbreak of war, in which he distilled the natural abundance and sensuality of Italy into works steeped in sunshine and the scent of flowers and fruit set amid crumbled plaster.

“In a Ligurian Garden” by Henry Herbert La Thangue

An impressive depiction of a pelican by Henry Stacy Marks (1829-1898) also sold well at £18,500.

Henry Stacy Marks began his career focusing on historical scenes, often taken from Shakespeare; however, in 1888 the Fine Art Society planned an exhibition on birds and Marks took the opportunity to study the subject in depth, becoming a frequent visitor to London Zoo. Drawing birds with precision and focusing on exotic and colorful species, Henry Stacy Marks mastered the art of bird painting.

Other notable lots included a Portrait of Eleanor of Austria (of reputation) by a follower of Alonso Sanchez Coello (1531-1588), which sold for £8,500, a Lamentation in the manner of Campin ( circa 1375-1444), which sold for £4,500 and a pastel portrait of Miss Davy, granddaughter of Frances Fitz William, Lady Carbery by Hugh Douglas Hamilton (1739-1808) sold for £3,000.

A good supply of equine paintings in the sale was led by “The Flying Dutchman”, attributed to John Frederick Herring Snr. (1795-1865), sold for £7,000. Also sold well were a painting of a gray horse in a stable by Robert L Alexander (1840-1923) (sold for £4,500), and ‘Horse Fair, possibly Appleby’ by John Atkinson (1863-1924) (sold for £5,500).

The sale achieved a total hammer price of £330,780 with a sell-through rate of 83% for 131 lots.

A second sale on the same day, the Tennants Auctioneers Summer Sale, saw a cut glass goblet which accompanied Napoleon I on a campaign sell for £8,800.

During his campaign, Napoleon demanded that he be looked after in the manner he was accustomed to at the Imperial Palace, surrounded by luxuries befitting his rank and meeting the highest standards of formal etiquette.

The current glass was made by Montcenis, a crystal manufacturer established in 1787 and was engraved with an ‘N’ surmounted by the Imperial Crown. The glass was sold in the original fitted brown leather case embossed with the same crowned ‘N’ and golden bees, and had been part of a private family collection in the North West of England.

Tennants Auctioneers is a fourth generation family business and one of the UK’s largest international antiques and fine art auctioneers. Based in Leyburn, North Yorkshire, Tennants hold over 80 sales a year and connect over 200,000 buyers and sellers a year.

In 2014, Tennants expanded the auction center to 80,000 square feet with the development of The Garden Rooms – a venue dedicated to events, weddings, conferences and exhibitions. The venue is one of the largest event spaces in the region with a capacity of over 600 people.

It was Eid on Sunday and we also celebrated Lord Jagannath’s Sunabesha with the Rath Yatra coming to a great conclusion. I remember June 2018 when Eid coincided with Raja.

The Bakul Foundation had been invited to organize a storytelling session and handicraft quiz during the inaugural event at the new Odisha Handicraft Museum in Kalabhoomi. When I thought about the stories to tell, I started wondering about the Islamic influence on Odishan craftsmanship. Surprisingly, nothing came to mind.

I knew that the first chief architect of the modern capital of Bhubaneswar, Julius Vaz, tried to retain the syncretic element in the architecture of the modern city. (Otto Koenigsburger designed the city, but Vaz designed the buildings). He had designed the Rabindra Mandap as a Buddhist stupa, the market building as the Jain caves and the two towers as temples, and the Assembly lattice as Islamic motifs. But other than that, I couldn’t think of anything.

When I started my research I came across a wonderful story about the origin of applied art in Pipli and that is the story I told that day.

According to the story, Muslim Badshah commissioned a Darjee from Pipli to make two decorative pillows. The pillows turned out to be so exquisitely beautiful that the Darjees thought they deserved Lord Jagannath more than the Badshahs. He fell asleep with these contradictory thoughts.

When the Darjee woke up the next morning, he was surprised to see one of the pillows missing. When the Badshah heard of this he suspected wrongdoing on the part of the Darjee and enraged he imprisoned the Darjee. However, Lord Jagannath then came to the Badshah in a vision and said that the Darjee was innocent and that he himself had removed the pillow. The Badshah then liberated the Darjee and since then Muslim and Hindu craftsmen have been making the famous Pipli applique work, which adorns the Rathas and is a popular souvenir for pilgrims coming to the Rath Yatra and Jagannath temple.

Interestingly, Pipli also seems to have gotten its name from the presence of four Pirs in the area, and the name “Pipli” developed as a corruption of Pirapalli. Historian Anil Dhir has also written about this theory. The other theory that Mr. Dhir mentions that Pipli got its name from the presence of Peepul trees seems like an obvious simplistic theory, especially when we don’t call them Peepul in Odia.

An undated ink-on-brown paper painting by the late poet and Nobel laureate Rabindranath Tagore went up for sale on Friday at an online auction organized by auction house AstaGuru.



Tagore, a polymath who was also a philosopher, composer, writer, playwright and educator, created thousands of paintings in different mediums, but his works are rarely auctioned. “Tagore was a fairly prolific painter, with over 2,300 creations in just over 10 years, starting at the age of 60, but most of his work is already public in institutions such as Visva Bharati in Santiniketan , or the National Gallery of Modern Art, which do not sell paintings,” says Santiniketan-based art historian R Siva Kumar.

Even when a work surfaces, since all of its works are designated national treasures, none can leave the country. Tagore’s paintings have fetched crores at auction.

Bird, the painting in question, comes from the collection of another illustrious artist, the late Nandalal Bose. Bidding started at 20,000 and the work eventually sold for over 9.36 million.



Looking at images of Bird, Debraj Goswami, artist and assistant professor of fine arts at MS University in Baroda, said the work could be seen as reflecting the influence of Haida art. Tagore is said to have been struck by this Native North American art form while visiting the United States.

“Haida artwork is usually very simplified forms of animals and birds, usually in black and white. Inspired by them, Tagore painted many imaginary creatures in black and white, using ink on paper,” Goswami said.

“It’s not just a work of art, but a relic of India’s national history,” said Sunny Chandiramani, vice president of customer relations at AstaGuru.

Passers-by may have noticed three new murals in Sacramento’s Mural Alley. The work debuted at the end of this spring.

Mural Alley is sponsored by Archival Gallery, located at the 32nd and 33rd aisles of Folsom Boulevard. The beautification project elevates commercial and even residential spaces into a lane that was previously a blank slate.

Mural Alley art was made by Robert Bowen, Davy Fiveash and Miles Hermann. Fiveash’s “Providence” mural was inspired by the floral still life and patterns he uses in his other artwork he paints in his studio.

“I do what I like to see,” Fiveash said.

He hopes the murals are a small step towards making Sacramento a great arts city again, as Fiveash thinks it was in the 1970s and 1980s.

“I want people to enjoy it. Hope this inspires others to create something,” Fiveash said. He prefers the studio painting process, but Fiveash was happy to contribute to Mural Alley. “I like being able to say ‘I did this’. I contributed and I’m part of this community.

One of the new murals is “Loki Formulates a Theory of Everything”, by Dawn Pedersen. Pedersen previously participated in Sacramento’s Chalk It Up event, an event that uses sidewalks as a slate for art.

His mural is based on his cat, Loki.

“I wanted to make him famous,” she joked.

She first made an oil painting before starting to work on the mural. She generally works in oil, acrylic and watercolour. “Loki” is his first public fresco. It took about 30 hours to paint the mural, and Pedersen brought his 11-year-old to help with the painting.

“It was fun to do together,” she said.

Pedersen likes the murals to be seen by a large number of people. The public aspect of murals is a great advantage for many artists, because people who may not be looking for art are still on display and can enjoy them.

D. Oldham Neath, owner of the Archival Gallery who coordinated the murals, stands in front of a residential garage door Wednesday, June 15, 2022, painted by artist Carrie Cottini. Her piece “Call Me Maybe” features five different tubes of lipstick, which is the artist’s signature subject. Sacramento’s Mural Alley is a beautification project that elevates businesses and residential spaces in the Folsom Boulevard Alley between 32nd and 33rd Streets in East Sacramento Lezlie Sterling lsterling@sacbee.com

Carrie Cottini had a very different experience painting her mural on a residential garage door. Her piece, “Call Me Maybe”, features five different lipstick tubes. Cottini has known D. Oldham Neath, who coordinated the murals through Archival Gallery, for around 20 years. Of the spaces available to be painted, Cottini was particularly fond of the yellow house and the garage in the background.

“Lipsticks are kind of my signature subject. I’ve always loved painting them. There’s so much stuff there,” Cottini said.

While she had previously helped other artists to paint, this is Cottini’s first mural. She usually works in acrylic on canvas. Cottini was grateful to help fill Sacramento with art.

“It’s a community that I’m so happy to be a part of,” she said.

“Gutter Trap” is John Stuart Berger’s contribution to Mural Alley. According to her artist’s statement, her piece is a reminder to persist and focus on the positive. “Gutter Trap” is located at 3223 Folsom Blvd, on the back wall of the Archives Gallery. Its name comes from the downspouts on the wall.

Neath has owned the Archival Gallery since 1983. She also co-founded Sacramento’s “Second Saturday” and “Chalk It Up” art walks. The Mural Alley project, which came about through Neath’s coordination with its neighbors, is expected to last indefinitely.

An artist from County Wexford has been chosen to take part in an inaugural exhibition showcasing the work of artists with intellectual disabilities.

eter Kehoe from Bridgetown is one of ten artists selected by the Connections Arts Center for exhibition later this month at the Royal College of Surgeons in Dublin.

Peter enjoys painting wildlife, usually animals and birds in their natural habitat, as well as seascapes and landscapes in watercolors and acrylics.

He said he tries to express a positive outlook through his works and emphasizes this through bright, cheerful colors. My style of work is bold shapes and brightly colored lines.

He enjoyed working on the Connections project and found the tutor and other artists very helpful.

“I am very proud to exhibit my work at the Royal College of Surgeons. It is an honor to be part of the Connections Art Center and a pleasure to work with such fantastic artists and see their brilliant works.

“I have been making art since I was a child. The artists who inspire me are Picasso, Claude Monet and Vincent van Gogh. My favorite painting is Sunflowers by Van Gogh”.

Connections Arts Center was first created as an online platform dedicated to connecting members of the disability community through the arts and was the brainchild of Miriam Spollen, a long-time advocate and worker in the sector arts and disability.

“I lost my job in 2021 due to Covid, but it really was a blessing in disguise as I now had time to develop a business idea that I had been considering for over 10 years. In the mist of the Covid,” she explained.

“Connections Arts Center was created to connect and support people with disabilities through the arts. In March this year, CAC opened a base in Rathgar, Dublin to run training and arts and lifestyle programmes.

“We have supported 600 participants since our inception last year through a mix of online and in-person activities and it has been so rewarding and encouraging to see the commitment and enthusiasm of the participants.”

Connections Arts Center has worked with participants from organizations such as Enable Ireland, REhab, Walk, Gheel Autism and other services.

Connecting Artists 2022 was developed when Miriam identified the need to showcase the work of artists with intellectual disabilities from across Ireland.

The program offers an immersive and interactive curriculum for artists with intellectual abilities to develop their creative practice and hone their natural talents.

The exhibition at RCSI features the work of ten artists who participated in the online program and who are encouraged to form their own collective to continue to meet monthly online with the support of CAC.

“There is a wonderful atmosphere within our online community, artists feel part of a larger artistic world that feeds their wonderful creativity and imagination. It’s great to see such positive energy and such community among artists,” Miriam said.

“It’s so gratifying to see so many artists supporting each other and developing their practice. It’s about connecting and building artists’ confidence, helping them develop and hone their natural creativity, and showcasing their incredible talents to the wider community, all while breaking down barriers.

Miriam said there has been a very positive reaction to the upcoming exhibition.

“It’s a wonderful achievement for the artists themselves first and foremost, and we’re really encouraged by the response we’re getting from the general public, both corporate and community.”

The program was sponsored by the Bank of Ireland’s Begin Together Arts Fund in partnership with Business to Arts.

Miss Hunt said: “We all need to take care of our minds, just like we do our bodies. Just an hour a week doing something you love is so good for mental health and we can afford an hour but we don’t give ourselves enough love.”

Emma suffers from a serious illness called Ehler-Danlos Syndrome and uses art and music as a form of therapy to support her mental well-being.

She also experienced abuse which had a major impact on her life, but says her creativity helped her through it.

She said: “I didn’t know what to do, there was hardly any service available as unfortunately there had been a spike in domestic abuse.

“I fell through the cracks and I knew I would end up in a very dark place if I didn’t do something to help me recover.

“Because of the traumatic bond, many victims will not wish to leave their abuser, but there is no judgment, even if a woman wishes to remain in the relationship, help is available.”
