JRB Art At The Elms to host New Year’s Day celebration
From staff reports | Published: December 28, 2012 | Modified: December 28, 2012 at 4:21 pm
JRB Art at The Elms will welcome 2013 with its 10th annual New Year’s Day exhibit and celebration from 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m., Jan. 1. The exhibit also will be featured during the Paseo First Friday Gallery Walk from 6 to 10 p.m., Friday, Jan. 4. The exhibit will run through Jan. 27.
On New Year’s Day, as is the Gallery’s custom, guests may enjoy complimentary champagne, black eyed peas, ham, collard greens, assorted salads, dips and pastries while feasting their eyes on the spectacular “Pop Target” paintings of Ford Beckman.
Beckman first rose to prominence amid the wave of post-Neo-Expressionist artists who came to define “New Art in New York” in the late 1980s, a gallery spokesman said. A re-investigation of the works of Beckman and many of his contemporaries is currently underway, confirming their reputations as artists of relevance. The series of “Pop Targets” paintings are part of Beckman’s ongoing investigation of the hybridization of minimal and pop aesthetics.
Beckman’s work has been exhibited internationally and is included in such notable public collections as Panza Collection, London; The Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles; San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; Israeli Museum, Jerusalem; Essl Collection, Vienna; the Denver Art Museum; the Armand Hammer Foundation; and the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York.
