Tessa Groshoff Finds Safety in Art

by Jennifer Larue via “The Spokesman Review

“On a white sheet of paper, Tessa Groshoff spills her secrets.

She swirls, lines and scribbles to tell her stories in the universal language of art that words simply cannot convey.

“Art is my way of communicating,” she said. “I believe a person’s voice can be heard without words. Each stroke is a memory to be created or released, and each stroke has a purpose whether it is dark or light.” . . . .”

“David Edward Byrd has a thing about eyes.

You can see it in his work.

“That’s how I meet you, see your face. Your eyes,” said the artist. “I always thought that was a real grabber … I kind of made it a trademark.”

A selection of Byrd’s work is on display at the Robert and Frances Fullerton Museum of Art at California State University, San Bernardino. The exhibit is called “Music to My Eyes, David Edward Byrd: Posters and Music-related Designs 1968 — Now.”

Born in Tennessee, educated in Boston and now based in Los Angeles, Byrd became known for his posters created for rock concert promoter Bill Graham in the late 1960s. . . . .”

Fla. Artist Smashes $1M Vase in Miami Museum

“Fla. Artist Smashes $1M Vase in Miami Museum”

by Curt Anderson via “ABC News”

“A South Florida artist is facing a criminal charge after police say he smashed a $1 million vase at Miami’s new art museum in what appears to be a form of protest.

Maximo Caminero, 51, was charged with criminal mischief after Sunday’s incident at the Perez Art Museum Miami. According to a Miami Police Department arrest affidavit, a security guard told officers that Caminero picked up a colored vase by Chinese dissident artist Ai Weiwei. When told to put it down, the security guard said Caminero smashed it on the floor.

A police affidavit says Caminero told officers he broke the vase to protest the museum’s lack of local artist displays. Caminero, a painter who lives in Miami, declined comment when reached by telephone Monday. He said he will have an afternoon news conference Tuesday. . . . .”
