U. C. Berkeley's Plan for a new

Berkeley Art Museum & Pacific Film Archive

Berkeley Art Museum Street View
An architectural gem is planned for Berkeley, and accordingto the Berkeley Art Museum's website, its new museum will open in 2013. Japanese architect Toyo Ito has created a fluid and contemplative home for viewing art. Right angles and flat are virtually eliminated, while curving walls both inside and out allow the gallery visitor to flow through the museum. Nicolai Ouroussoff of the New York Times says Toyo Ito "suggests an intoxicating architectural dance."

In these economic times, it is hard to imagine that the University of California will be able to complete this endeavor, but if it comes to be, it will certainly add to the cultural landscape of Berkeley and the entire Bay Area.

The new location is at the western edge of the campus at the intersection of Center and Oxford Streets, allowing the museum to serve both the campus and the community. It will be joining other downtown Berkeley venues for the arts, The Berkeley Repertory Theater, the soon to open Freight and Salvage venue for acoustic music, the soon to move Judah L. Magnes Museum, and close by on campus, Zellerbach Hall.

Like a peaceful stream, the visitor's path through the museum will balance stillness and movement. The observer will never feel blocked off or boxed in, but is allowed to flow through the exhibits, free to linger or free to stroll and come upon what's around the next bend.

The 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake damaged the current Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive, now braced with external steel beams. Its cold concrete formed into angular shaped galleries seems a harsh environment by comparison.

On the ground level, the new museum will offer a well stocked bookstore, a cafe, and a 256 seat theater. The upper levels will house the galleries, including both visiting exhibits and the museum's permanent collections. Mr. Ito has said he wanted to create "eddies in a current of water." A visitor moves through the museum as a mountain stream moves through a canyon. As they move through, one gallery will fade as another comes into view.

Vermeer's "A Lady Writing" at Pasadena's Norton Simon Museum
Vermeer's "A Lady Writing" makes its first Los Angeles appearance at Pasadena's Norton Simon Museum through February 7, 2009. In Atlanta, Vermeer's "The Astronomer" is on exhibit through September 6, 2009. Atlanta's High Museum of Art hosts Vermeer's "The Astronomer."

A very rare appearance of Vermeer's work has arrived at Pasadena's Norton Simon Museum and will be on exhibit through February 2, 2009. "A Lady Writing" is on loan from the National Gallery of Art. This is the first visit of this painting to the Los Angeles area. "A Lady Writing" is the first loan to the Norton Simon Museum from the National Gallery. Through February 7, it will appear in the 17th-century Dutch gallery, alongside the Norton Simon Museum’s significant collection of Rembrandt portraits and other examples of 17th-century Dutch genre painting.

Vermeer's The Astronomer is currently at Atlanta's High Museum of Art as part of the Musee de Louvre's 93 piece exhibit entitled "Evolution and Exploration of the MASTERPIECE," through September 6, 2009. Paintings, sculpture, decorative arts, and drawings will reflect three major themes: the changing historical and cultural definitions of a masterpiece; authenticity and connoisseurship; and the evolution of taste and scholarship. The exhibition is divided into three sections which together explore a range of thematic questions about the concept of a masterpiece.

Johannes Vermeer lived to be only forty-three years old, but is one of the world's most venerated artists. Today, there are only thirty-four known paintings which survive, and there are no drawings or vintage prints. Yet from this small body of surviving work, his gift of interpreting everyday activities and subjects into compelling scenes has taught us much of Dutch life three hundred and fifty years ago, and has elevated his reputation among the greatest painters of all time.

Charlie Rose Interview regarding Vermeer

Resource helpful for the current Vermeer exhibits: In 2001, Charlie Rose conducted this enlightening hour-long interview with Philippe de Montebello, the Metropolitan Museum Director, and Walter Liedtke, the curator of the Metropolitan Museum's Department of European Painting on the occasion of the New York Metropolitan Museum's exhibition entitled "Vermeer and the Delft School" (March 8 - May 7, 2001).

This brief New York exhibit placed Vermeer's works alongside those of his contemporaries. Fifteen of Vermeer's 34 known paintings were involved in this 2001 exhibition, including such works as "The Art of Painting" and "The Procuress").

America's Newest, Roanoke's Taubman Museum

Kimberly Templeton, Director of External Affairs, is interviewed about
the events surrounding the opening of the Taubman Museum of Art on Round Roanoke,
with Carolene Donaldson, WCOX television, Roanoke. (7:20 min)

Portrait of Mrs. John Gribble (Nora)
Oil on canvas, 110 x 59
by John Singer Sargent, at the Taubman

As the dark clouds of the economy threaten the art world, here's a silver lining. America's newest art museum has opened in Roanoke, Virginia. On November 8th, the 81,000 square foot museum became the first art museum built for that purpose in Roanoke, and is named for its lead patrons, Nicholas F. and Eugenia L. Taubman. Mr Taubman had been America's ambassador to Romania.

This new impressively striking structure mirrors its Blue Ridge Mountain surroundings while capturing the the spirit of the Shenandoah Valley. It was designed by LA architect Randall Stout, Inc., known for their sustainable green structures, and proves to be a fine counterpoint to Roanoke's older architecture.

Inside, the museum's permanent collection includes 19th and 20th century American paintings, ancient Mediterranean and European art, new media art, photography, and Japanese prints.

Since 1998, the Horace G. Fralin Charitable Trust has assisted the museum in acquiring works by a number of notable artists, Winslow Homer, Childe Hassam, Maurice Prendergast, John Singer Sargent, Robert Henri, Norman Rockwell, George Inness and others.

The museum has established groups to assist in acquisitions, including the Collector's Circle who continue to seek out and acquire new works. For more, visit their website at | Back to the Top

California Impressionism
Paintings Visit Upstate NY

A group of California Impressionism paintings from the Irvine Museum Collection are on exhibit at the Hyde Collection in Glens Falls, NY. The exhibit includes sixty works and runs through January 18, 2009.

David F. Setford, the Hyde Collection's executive director, notes that impressionism found fertile ground in California during the first years of the twentieth century. He explains that California's climate and extraordinarily diverse landscape became popular for painters who would paint plein air,

infusing their work with natural light and color. Exhibits of California impressionist paintings have been rare in the Northeast. This exhibit will offer Easterners a rare opportunity to view some of finest

examples of California's Impressionist paintings. Included in the exhibit are works by Maurice Braun, Alson Clark, Armin Hansen, Edgar Payne, Hanson Puthuff, Guy Rose, Elmer Wachtel, Marion Kavanagh Wachtel, Arthur G. Rider, William Wendt and others. The exhibit's catalogue includes essays by William H. Gerdts, Harvey L. Jones, David Dearinger, and Jean Stern, all leading authorities on American Impressionism.

The Hyde Collection Art Museum was founded as a public trust established in 1952 by Charlotte Hyde, who wished to bequeath her home and its contents - a lifetime's pursuit of important fine and decorative arts and antique furnishings - to the residents of Glens Falls. 2,688 pieces comprise the permanent collection emphasizing paintings, sculpture, and works on paper. The collection possesses a significant group of works by important American artists including Bellows, Bierstadt, Chase, Eakins, Hassam, Homer, Metcalf, Peto, Ryder, Thayer, Vedder and Whistler. Among its European paintings are works by Botticelli, El Greco, van Dyck, Ingres, Raphael, Rembrandt, Rubens, Tintoretto, Cézanne, Degas, Matisse, Picasso, Renoir, and van Gogh.

Hyde House was completed in 1912. The structure is a striking example of American Renaissance architecture. Nine rooms on two and a half stories surround a centrally lighted courtyard. The structure served as the Hydes' residence for over 50 years. Today, this historic structure is on the National Register of Historic Places and remains much as it looked when occupied by the family. It functions solely as a semi-permanent installation space for the Museum's fine and decorative arts collection and antique furnishings, and a venue for classical music recitals. | | Back to the Top

Tony Dow Bronze Unarmed Warrior
Tony Dow's Bronze "Unarmed Warrior"
Tony Dow Sculpture at the Louvre

Yes, that Tony Dow. Now a retired film producer and television director, he dedicates his time to being an inspired 63 year old sculptor and he has been selected to be part of the Societe Nationale des Beaux-Arts annual judged exhibit .

It must be tough having achieved fame as a child actor. Yes, the early fame opens some doors and gives plenty of name recognition, but shaking that old iconic identity makes being taken seriously a bit more problematic.
Tony Dow and Jerry Mathers

Tony Dow
Sculptor Tony Dow Today

For instance, on the occasion of Tony's recent artistic honor, The San Francisco Chronicle burdened him with the following headline, "Gee Wally, how'd you get to the Louvre?" and the headline was followed by an article written by the paper's Pop Culture Critic, not an art critic. Some things, one just can't live down.

But what should be given to Tony Dow and his fellow artists of the Karen Lynne Gallery of Beverly Hills is some well deserved recognition. Tony is among twelve of the gallery's artists to be chosen to be displayed at the Carrousel du Louvre, a shopping center and exhibition space near the main museum. The work of these artists has been chosen by the Society Nationale des Beaux-Arts, to appear in a judged competition dating back more than a century. This year's exhibit will occur between December 11 - 14.

The piece Tony is exhibiting is a bronze abstract of a woman holding a shield entitled "Unarmed Warrior." Tony appears to be quite humbled by this recognition, and is quick to advise those who congratulate him that his work will not reside alongside the Mona Lisa. The retired actor, producer and director now considers himself an amateur artist.

He says this of his art. "My sculpture derives from whatever has passed through or by me; a culmination of my experiences; what I’ve seen, what I’m drawn to. The figures are abstract and not meant to represent reality but rather the truth of the interactions as I see and feel them. I find the wood in the hills of Topanga Canyon and each piece evolves from my subconscious. I produce limited editions of nine bronzes using the lost wax process from molds of the original burl sculpture."

Tony and his wife Lauren are grandparents and reside in the Santa Monica Mountains.

"Capital Gate," Abu Dhabi's Leaning Tower
Abu Dhabi's Capital Gate
In the current global economy, the center of new building and creative architectural daring has moved to the megalopolises of China and the oil rich sheikdoms of the Middle East.
Pisa's Leaning Tower

In our August issue, we reported on Abu Dhabi's new Louvre and Guggenheim museums, and now, here's their version of Pisa's Leaning Tower. Since then, we have learned of "Capital Gate" in Abu Dhabi. This modern day leaning tower will house the Hyatt at Capital Centre and office space.

Not only does The Capital Gate lean further, but it is much taller than the Tower of Pisa. The Capital Gate in Abu Dhabi reaches thirty-five stories in height, and leans westward 18 degrees, four times as far as the Tower of Pisa which leans just under four degrees.

Of course, construction techniques of the twenty-first century take advantage of a few ideas unavailable to the builders of Pisa's bell tower, begun 835 years ago in 1173. Pisa's Tower has recently been retrofitted with cables, weights, and foundational retrofits to insure its structural stability for the next three centuries. The Capital Center is built on 490 piles which descend to a depth of 30 meters, and is constructed with a dense mesh of reinforced steel.

David Pringle, CEO of the architectural firm RMJM Asia, says " “Capital Gate will be one of a kind. Its graceful, asymmetric diagonal structure, known as a ‘diagrid’, supports the tilting external load of the building and we believe that this is the first building in the world to use a pre-cambered core.” Pisa's Leaning Tower | Abu Dhabi's Leaning Tower | Back to the Top

Churchill Hid London's
National Gallery Treasures
Winston Churchill Portrait
Paintings being hidden at Pritchard Jones Hall
In June 1940, France fell, and in Paris German troops paraded down the Champs Elysées.

A year earlier, at closing on the evening of June 23, 1939, the National Gallery shut its doors as usual. But then with haste, the plan to hide away England's art treasures commenced.

Art was shipped out of London far from falling bombs and the possibility of a Nazi invasion.

In the several days following, in strict secrecy, the doors of the National Gallery remained sealed. Inside, art was removed and carefully loaded onto trucks, driven through London's streets to warehouses where the art was crated and shipped on trains away from London.

Precipitating this caution were lessons learned during World War I. In that war, as zeppelin raids floated overhead, the National Gallery's works were kept in the Aldwych tunnel of London's Underground. This experience taught that in the event of another war, more extensive arrangements would have to be laid out.

Some thought to remove the collection to Canada, but fearing the sinking of Atlantic ships, that idea lost favor. In 1934, there was an inquiry made to the owners of stately homes and manors as to whether they would consider storing paintings in the event of an emergency. After a reevaluation of the plan, assistant keeper of the National Gallery Martin Davies reported that very few of those selected met all requirements. As the tides of war rose, new plans were conceived to evacuate the art out of London where they hoped it would be far from harm's way. Eventually art was stored in a variety of locales, even a newly constructed atmospherically designed underground quarry.

Nearly 1,800 artworks had left London by 2 September, 1939. The next day, war was declared.

Gallery Notes
  • Libby Meador, wife of artist Joshua Meador (1911-1965), passed away three weeks ago. Dan will be attending a memorial service in Glendale, CA on December 12. Libby, her son Philip and daughter-in-law Hildur visited Bodega Bay Heritage Gallery in 2006. During her visit, Libby viewed many of our paintings, and stopped to comment on paintings by artists she had known, such as Conrad Buff and Stephen Seymour Thomas. She has contributed to our catalogues of Josh's works. Libby was 94 years old. She will be missed.
  • Booklets of our recent exhibitions are available. Pick them up at the gallery or send us your mailing address. Painters of the Desert; Regionalist Watercolors; 19th Century Paintings of Northern California; Painters of Carmel plus other Master Painters of the Sea.
  • The gallery has a very large collection of reference material, including several videos about particular artists and artistic movements (plus Sister Wendy, of course), and many books including a huge volume about Edward Hopper. There are also various slide shows available, such as Milford Zornes. On a rainy day or any other gallery day, please accept our invitation to sit down and browse for a while, or have a DVD shown for you. Because of lack of shelf space and our use of these books elsewhere, usually the gallery has only a selection of volumes most pertinent to the current show, but please speak up and tell us in advance about what you may wish to look through. The DVD of the more extensive version of Steve Martin's presentation about Hopper is on order and should be at the gallery soon. We will put together a bibliography soon for you to access.
  • See the video on our Alexander Dzigurski page entitled The Palette & Symphony.
  • If you run across some interesting news from the art world, let us know. We may put it in the next issue.
  • We still have a good selection of small, affordable works by Alexander Dzigurski II, and two larger works are on the way. We are expecting some additional small works from Kathi Hilton and perhaps another artist.
  • The main show that runs through mid January is "gallery favorites," with a selection from each of the gallery's specializations that ranges through time and artistic trends, and that emphasizes what has been of most interest to visitors, often representing local interest, and new acquisitions that haven't been shown previously. The principal groupings: Grace Allison Griffith and associated watercolorists; Nels Hagerup seascapes; impressionists such as Dedrick Stuber, Gustav Magnussen and Karl Schmidt; a small selection of desert painters; regionalists Ralph Baker and Milford Zornes; Alexander Nepote (very large) mixed media collages; many visitors' favorites Ralph Love and Joshua Meador.
