June 2019 Newsletter

Sometimes people ask me: "What is your art about?"

One of my answers is that my art is about Freedom: Freedom of Expression, Freedom of Form/Color/Motion, and Freedom of Interpretation.

In commemoration of the 75th Anniversary of D-Day, I have thought about freedom a lot recently, We, and so many others, owe our freedom in significant part to the heroic soldiers who stormed the beaches of Normandy. In recognition of their sacrifices and ultimate victory, I was moved to create the painting D-Day (below). What do you think?

D-Day
Inside

New Art and Shows

For the last several months, I have been focusing on creating new art. Beyond D-Day, I have painted several other large acrylics, including: Inside (shown above), Wanting Not Needing, and Within the Rains.     .

In addition to my website, there are several ways to see my large acrylics. Two of my acrylics, Working Together and Mysteries Within, are on display in Santa Maria at the Betteravia Gallery (511 E. Lakeside Parkway) until September. Working Together won second place in this excellent show, which is co-sponsored by the Santa Barbara County Arts Commission and the Abstract Art Collective. 

Also, I have several large acrylics on display in my condo in Downtown Santa Barbara, as well as many more that are not yet stretched/framed so they are much easier to transport. If you would like to see them in person, please e-mail me at andrew@andrewroyart.com. 

Exhibit at Gallery 113
Sandy with Quietly

Thank You, Collector Profiles, and Quote

Thanks to Julianne Martin's generous donation of wall space, my show at Gallery 113 was very successful, and resulted in several sales. People from all over the country saw the exhibit, including Pamela Bergmann and John  Duffy from Alaska (shown above). Thank you!

This month I am pleased to feature two of my collectors: Elizabeth Barry and Sandy Rabinowitch (shown above). Both Elizabeth and Sandy have had long and important government careers in Alaska. Sandy served in high level postions for Alaska State Parks and the National Park Service. An attorney, Elizabeth contributed extensively to the Department of Interior and the Alaska Department of Law, including serving as Chief Assistant Attorney General for the Natural Resources Section.  Born in California, Sandy has lived in Alaska for 43 years, while Elizabeth, who spent her youth mostly in the south, has lived in Alaska for 39 year. Both love the out-of-doors and art. Sandy is holding one of my Alaska inspired works, Quietly, which they acquired on-line. Thank you, Sandy and Elizabeth!

My quote of the month is from Nelson Mandela: "For to be free is not merely to cast off one's chain, but to live in a way that respects and enhances the freedom of others." 

Thank you for reading my newsletter and for supporting original contemporary abstract art. As always, I appreciate hearing from you.

Warm regards,
Andrew
