Upcoming Auction at PAAM Includes Rare Works by Renowned Cape Cod Artists
Provincetown, MA: Provincetown Art Association and Museum (PAAM) is pleased to announce its upcoming Fall Consignment Auction (Saturday, September 18 at 7pm). Presenting rare and vintage artwork of the highest quality, this annual event has consistently drawn large crowds, broken records, and offered buyers the unique opportunity to purchase extraordinary pieces by internationally recognized artists of outer Cape Cod.
Since the turn of the century, the Provincetown Art Colony and its surrounds have been home to some of the nation's most
influential and celebrated twentieth century artists, among them; Edwin Dickinson, Chaim Gross,
Blanche Lazzell, James Hansen, and Milton Avery. These artists created and taught on the shores of Cape Cod, making 
waves through American art history. P
rovincetown Art Association and Museum is dedicated to making exemplary
works by these artists available to the public through exhibitions, free educational programming and PAAM's highly
anticipated annual Fall Consignment Auction.

Presenting rare and vintage artwork of the highest quality, PAAM's annual Fall Consignment Auction provides a unique
opportunity to purchase outstanding and widely sought pieces by renowned artists of outer Cape Cod. This year, the auction presents
a number of extraordinary pieces by Edwin Dickinson, Blanche Lazzell, Hans
Hofmann, Chaim Gross, Max Bohm, Taro Yamamoto, James Hansen, Karl Knaths, Milton Avery, Robert Beauchamp and other highly collected
Cape Cod artists.

Two weeks before the live auction, PAAM mounts an exhibition preview in its galleries, allowing potential buyers to
view lots in person -- intimately, quietly, before the bidding wars begin. This calm before the storm allows for a deeper
interaction with the artwork than simply arriving to buy, and provides an excellent overview of Provincetown art history as
most of the pieces on view date from the early 1900s to the 1970s.

PAAM's Executive Director Chris McCarthy says, "I'm thrilled to see such an exciting selection of pieces in this auction: a

brilliant and perfectly-preserved white line woodblock print by the legendary Blanche Lazzell, a hauntingly beautiful painting
by Edwin Dickinson, and a bold, elegant bronze by Chaim Gross - these lots are rare, valuable and would not just enhance

but perhaps become the most important piece in many a private collection."

The live auction takes place at PAAM Saturday, September 18 at 7pm, when auctioneer James R. Bakker takes the podium and
engages an audience of more than 250 life-long collectors, first-time buyers, and everyone in-between. When the phone lines are
readied, paddles are issued, and lots are brought before the room by a fleet of volunteers, a frenzy of activity begins. In this room,
collections are born and expanded, and for the last four years -- PAAM has seen a great number of international auction records broken.

A preview exhibition of available lots opens at PAAM with a free public reception September 3, 8-10pm and is on view
through September 18, 5pm. Out-of-town collectors are invited to view the full auction catalog online beginning
September 6. Telephone and absentee bids are accepted, please call PAAM in advance to make arrangements.  Admission to
the live auction is complimentary.
PAAM is located at 460 Commercial Street, Provincetown, MA 02657.  For more information or to arrange absentee bidding, please call 508.487.1750 or visit

Provincetown Art Association and Museum was established in 1914 by a group of artists and townspeople to build a permanent collection of works by artists of outer Cape Cod, and to exhibit art that would allow for unification within the community. Through a comprehensive schedule of exhibitions of local and national significance and educational outreach, Provincetown Art Association and Museum provides the public access to art, artists, and the creative process.
PAAM, located at 460 Commercial Street, is open (October - May) noon to 5pm, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday, also open by appointment; (Memorial Day - September) 11 am - 8pm Monday - Thursday, 11am - 10pm Friday, 11am - 5pm Saturday and Sunday. General admission $7. Free to members and children 12 and under. For more information, please call 508.487.1750 or visit

 August 21 - September 12

The heart of the Art League of Long Island is its distinguished and dedicated faculty.
In advance of the fall semester, the Art League of Long Island honors them in an
exhibition of their personal work.   

The Art League's faculty is comprised of well-respected, award-winning artists who also
share a common goal of excellence in teaching art to students of all ages and abilities.
 They are dedicated to introducing new techniques and materials to their students, challenging them to root out compositional clichés and
 getting them to think about their work in new ways.

In addition to its long-time group of master teachers in the classic areas of painting,
drawing, ceramics, and sculpture, the Art League is making waves in presenting
new classes and workshops that go beyond the traditional forms of expression. 
For example, one of their newest faculty members, a professional goldsmith,
takes knitting to another level as she teaches students how to create unique jewelry
by knitting with metal wire. 
Teaching artists also conduct classes in mosaic design, fused glass,
digital photography, painting on silk to make wearable art,
and other specialized jewelry techniques.

Admission to the exhibit is open to the general public at no charge
Monday through Friday 9am - 4pm and on Saturdays 11am - 4pm.  
The gallery will be closed Monday September 6 in observance of the Labor Day holiday.

Recent Paintings of Hemraj


This comes to my mind when I look at the paintings of Hem Raj. His paintings help us to reach a point of thinking through meditation,
a point of wordless and unintellectual understanding, which lie behind signs and symbols. His paintings lead us on a kind of tantric path,
a path that combines meditation with consciousness. Meditation, the means of reaching a world beyond thinking, is an important concern
of the artist. His paintings are meant to bring piece for the onlooker and the painter. They should be a sublime representation of feeling
beyond thinking. Thus you could attain “Anand”, eternal bliss, spiritual joy. Then only you could reach “anyatra dharmad anyatra adharmat”,
an ex-pression from the Upanishads that was used by Nietzsche for his highly influental work “Jenseits von Gut und Böse” (Beyond good and evil).

Fine Art Magazine - Interview With Kenneth McClure & Juliann Giurelo

Wednesday, August 4, 2010


The Multipurpose Building, located in Anthony F. Veteran Park, at 11 Olympic Lane, Ardsley, NY houses program activities for Senior Citizens. 
Along the side of the building a rock with a plaque commemorates the lives lost in the September 11 attack on New York. Until the end of August 2010, one can also see, inside the corridors of the building, a painting by Biagio Gino Civale that stresses the smoke coming out of Ground Zero.
(See image)

This work is part of a mini one-man exhibition by this Westchester artist, including thirteen paintings, oils, woodcuts and serigraphs.  The variety of the subject matter is also reflected in the interest for decoration per se. (as per other image).

Marines, human figures and human activities are also depicted in the other works. 
This exhibition is open to the public during the hours of operation of the building.  For confirmation of access please call 914 693 8985.  The Multipurpose Building is part of the Parks & Recreation Department, Office for the Aging.

Rappel RSVP du Vernissage pour l'Artiste Daniel Merriam

merriam invite chateau 2010

CHATEAU BELCASTEL | Bâtie voici 1000 ans sur un solide éperon rocheux, cette magnifique forteresse surplombe l'un des plus beaux villages de l'Aveyron. Né sur une chapelle du 9e siècle, le château de Belcastel vit son histoire façonnée au cours des siècles par des générations de chevaliers, de nobles et de hors-la-loi. Mais la fin du 16e siècle marqua l'arrêt brutal de cette ascension lorsque le château fut abandonné et laissé pour ruine.
En 1973, le célèbre architecte Fernand Pouillon en découvrit les vestiges qu'il décida de restaurer afin de rendre au château sa gloire d'antan. Il se consacra huit ans à la restauration de l'édifice, dont il fit plus tard sa demeure.
Bien que privé, le château est ouvert à la visite et le public invité à découvrir ce qui est à la fois un monument historique et une galerie d'art. L'idée de cette cohabitation unique est l'oeuvre d'Animazing Gallery à Soho, New York. Depuis 1984, en effet, Animazing organise avec succès des expositions dont la beauté ludique est un plaisir pour les sens.

Vous verrez d'authentiques armures médiévales, les douves d'origine, de magnifiques expositions, de superbes points de vue. Vous admirerez au plus près l'extraordinaire travail de restauration. Vous découvrirez cette histoire et cette architecture de génie qui font de la visite du château de Belcastel une expérience remarquable et inoubliable.

Pakpoom Silaphan

Pakpoom Silaphan

10 September – 23 October 2010

Private view Thursday 9 September, 6 - 8pm

Scream Gallery is proud to present Pakpoom Silaphan’s  solo show, featuring new works from his Coca-cola series. 
Using vintage Coca-cola and Pepsi advertising signs as his canvas, Silaphan creates portraits of influential people using collage and illustration with marker pen and emulsion.  High-profile figures including John Lennon, Che Guevera and The Queen populate the signs, making a clear connection between icons and the advertising industry.  Silaphan takes Warhol’s elevation of everyday brands to high art, and combines it with his adoration of famous figures.  The power of advertising and corporate branding is demonstrated by the infiltration of Coca-Cola, Pepsi etc. to countries outside Western culture.  
As a child in rural Thailand, Silaphan amassed a collection of advertising signs, which he found in the street. The rediscovery of the collection as an adult was the seed of this new collection.  During his childhood, Silaphan came across Western icons such as Elvis Presley, Andy Warhol and Muhammad Ali, but had little knowledge of them, initially thinking Warhol was a scientist because of his messy hair.
In a world obsessed with superficial looks, where Warhol’s prophecy of ‘15 minutes of fame’ has become a reality to millions of YouTube ‘stars’ and X Factor contestants, Silaphan’s emphasis is firmly on the true contemporary icons, the people who made a significant impact on our culture.
Celebrity is really just a word.  The people who not only find fame, but also learn the power of influence, and in doing so, make a huge impact on our culture - these are the icons to me.                                             Pakpoom Silaphan, July 2010 
Silaphan studied fine art at Silpakorm University in Thailand, and worked in advertising for a period, before moving to London to continue his studies.  He took a Post-graduate course in print making at Camberwell College of Art, and an MA in Fine Art at Chelsea College of Art.  Silaphan has exhibited internationally with shows in the USA, France and Italy, and featured in ‘My Private Collection’ with Grayson Perry, David Hockney, Shephard Fairey and Banksy, at the Paul Smith Gallery in Tokyo in 2009.  He has had three solo shows at the Apart Gallery, and an exhibition ‘Establishing Establishment’ at Salon Gallery in 2009.
