BROWNSVILLE NEEDS MUSEUM DEDICATED TO MUSIC
Tuesday, March 23, 2010
I don't by any way consider myself to be a Chicano or Post Chicano artist, but simply a painter. I realize now that labels can short live the production of an artist.

Live painting is an interesting way for an artist to be spontaneous sometimes even competitive... I think as an artist, you become adjusted to working on your own the privacy of your home and or studio.. I think when it comes to being in an open setting where, anyone may stop by and comment, I think can bring out other expressive factors... It is perhaps similar to a painting class, where perhaps everyone is painting but some may standout more than others, not in a good or bad way but you are able to see how a painter works, how he or she gets things done, how fast they think and or how loose they are and absorb the surrounding..
The more artist the show up the better, if they are able to show an example of there skill even better..Its a great way to learn from each other..
And ofcourse there will be some paintings, drawings for sale, at all prices making it affordable to the passerby........ etc. etc.

"Eduardo Ibarra redefines the idea of contemporary art with his newest work displayed at Alumni Exhibit at the Rusteberg Art Gallery Curated by Celeste de Luna."
Wednesday, March 03, 2010
If you think about the people that create art as "people in general" and not as perhaps confusingly defined as "artists" as if they are out of content, perhaps people from another planet, but as human beings, living and part of society, different gender and or social status, with multiple backgrounds, and there decisions for creating art, because they choose to create it on there own or because they follow a social order a trend perhaps that helps them fit in as part of the norm.
I laugh to myself and think about my idea of an artist as defined as a crazy man who walks around town wearing only a red boot, singing " I AM A FREAKING TOMATO , I AM A FREAKING TOMATO, I AM A FREAKING TOMATO ".. a madman to his misfortune..
Perhaps a behavioral study will suggest people are more eager to become recognized as artist than they are willing to improve there skill and or talent. And perhaps artists today rely more on there efforts to become famous rather then to face the truth and question whether the work he or she produces is worth the medias attention..

Gibson Girl exhibit
in honor of
Women's History Month
by Mr. and Mrs. Marvin Conner and family, from the estate of Elnora Hardee, mother of Mellena Conner
Press Release For Immediate Release
BROWNSVILLE, March 2010--The Brownsville Historical Association cordially invites you discover how Charles Dana Gibson defined an entire generation with his pen and ink drawings of "It Girls" in the Gibson Girl exhibit at Stillman House, which runs from Thursday, March 11, 2010 to May 1, 2010. The exhibit is held in honor of Women's History Month in March.
The opening reception for the exhibit is scheduled for Thursday, March 11 at 6 p.m. and is free to the public. Refreshments will be served. The exhibition is supported in part through the City of Brownsville.
The exhibit is drawn from a book of pen-and-ink drawings donated to the Brownsville Historical Association by Mr. and Mrs. Marvin Conner and family, from the estate of Elnora Hardee, mother of Mellena Conner.
Charles Dana Gibson was an American graphic artist that personified the feminine ideal in his iconic Gibson Girl portraits at the turn of the 20th century. Using only pen and ink, Gibson was able to capture beauty in his art. The epitome of femininity is said to be modeled after his wife, Irene Langhorne, and is uniquely displayed in scenes of everyday life according to Gibson. His work was featured in magazines such as Life, Harper's Magazine, and Collier's Weekly.
The exhibit is included with BHA general admission to the Brownsville Heritage Complex, which includes admission to the Stillman House Museum and to the Brownsville Heritage Museum. Admission is free for members of he Brownsville Historical Association.
Along with the exhibition, BHA carries Gibson Girl drinking glasses in La Tienda Heritage Museum Gift Shop. BHA members receive a discount on the purchase of these and other items and books.
