A Brief History of Gold

Wynton Marsalis and Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra, Grass Valley, Ca. Performance, 2016.
Wynton Marsalis and Jazz at Lincoln Center onstage with E.J. Gold JazzArt,  2016.

The list is long, but I’ll give you a brief history of my art exhibits over the years. I’ve left out hundreds of shows with the same galleries to avoid a boring list. I seem to have anywhere from five to fifteen shows a year every year, with the exception of my “vacation times”, short intervals between painting and sculpting and music and theater and dance and ceramic arts, paper arts, you know — exploration and application. I know you’ll want this for your eBay and other art listings, so here’s the SHORT list — the whole list can be found in the Linda Corriveau photobiography, “More Color, Less Soul”. Continue reading

Have You Missed The Boat???

E.J. Gold Acrylic on Canvas “Red Sky Sun” in the collection of King Hussein & Queen Noor of Jordan.

If you’re reading this, there’s still a chance to jump on board. I’m planning a full-frontal economic surge this spring, just to illustrate how it can be done with no money and just a little of your time. My goal is to raise an unspecified amount of funds — which means I haven’t got a specific target or a specific amount as a money-goal. The money is irrelevant. I’m just doing this to prove it can be done and, if you took the time and spent the energy, YOU could be doing it just as easily as I. Continue reading

A Jazzy Show Catalogue of Renaissance & Modern Art

mirosmall

JOAN MIRO — Original Mourlot Hand-Pulled Stone Lithograph printed on wove paper, it is the back cover of ” XXe Siecle #4″, published in 1954; edition size about 5,000, probably a few hundred circulating around nowadays, or far less, as a result of many of them falling into a permanent collection of a library, university or museum. A very rare original print with lots of early primitivism and strong paint strokes. The double “X” signifies the “twentieth century” aspect of the famous high-grade French art “magazine” of the Golden Age of Art. Condition is Extra-Fine.

Bidding Range: $950 – $1500

SIDE-NOTES: This is hard to find, and expensive to buy, with no hope of “fast turnover”. It may take years to sell a print in a gallery. There are  some XXe Siecle originals on eBay, and a lot of things that people THINK are XXe Siecle that are also there. Some prints are as low as $30 bucks or so, when the seller is unaware of the value of the print, and when the artist is not as well-collected, highly valued or among the “Big Name Artists” like Rembrandt, Renoir, Chagall, Miro, Picasso, and Matisse. It’s not a good idea to seek out bargains in the art market. You pay for what you get, and you get what you pay for. Continue reading

Your Museum Donation Could Make History!!!

x
Original Signed Picasso Copperplate Engraving of Ballet Dancers, 1945.

I have several museum-grade collections just sitting in three bank vaults — important art historical art and literature collections that would be highly appreciated by any public institution that received them. They are of the highest caliber and significance. You might want to purchase one or more of them and donate them to your favorite museum, university or library or build a space to house one or more of these collections. All the collections are legal to own, and have been on public display in the United States for more than half a century.

Typically, museums don’t buy things — they expect them to be donated, and many people enjoy tax benefits from buying collections and then donating them to a museum, library or university, as well as other venues such as jazz schools, jazz clubs, jazz and art academies and even malls and shops, medical waiting rooms and hospital hallways, where the weight limitations are very important and easily met by our display team technologies, and several folks have donated their collections to local Elks clubs and other public benefit organizations.

There are many other benefits that might accrue for you or someone you know, resulting from the donation of an important art or history collection, not the least of which is the sheer pleasure you get from sharing with thousands of people the beauty that you have discovered in your life, possibly bringing love, joy and beauty to theirs as well.

In addition, if your gift is important enough, you might have a Hall or a Wing named after yourself, or a loved one in memoriam, or you might elect to donate anonymously or posthumously or both. I’d discuss Living Trusts and other instruments with my accountant and attorney before making any decisions, though — you never really know what your options are until you check with the professionals for professional advice that they can guarantee and for which they take responsibility.

Enamel Granulation — A New Technique — A New Art Form

x
These are not granulation, but are paper arts enamels.

I think I just invented enamel granulation, at least in the New Age Material I’ve been using with what amounts to a cheese fondue dish combined with a professional hair dryer and a few common kitchen utensils — clearly, that’s where the paper enameling technology that I buy and use must have first spawned, and if you look at the products typical of the art form, you’ll be disappointed in the very ordinary kind of products — things that amount to “VANILLA” in any language, meaning that there is absolutely no exploitation of the Fine Art effects that can be brought out of the medium.

Voyaging in the MacroDimensions NEW RELEASES

Many years ago, back in 1971, before there were videocams and long before there was digital, we purchased an ENG — Electronic News Gathering video system, like the kind used by the local TV stations and some networks. The unit weighed upwards of 30 pounds, and the battery likewise. One person carrying and handling the 20 pound video camera, the other carrying the giant “portable” helical-scan 1/2″ tape recorder.

The sun could burn out your camera’s vidicon tube. You couldn’t make a video in low light, and movement tended to blur. Breakup of the image was normal in this unit, and you’ll see lots of it, especially at the beginning of each tape.

Many of the earlier videos were experimental, trying to find out what the camera and recorder could capture. We bought two studio type cameras and a larger Sony video recorder for the house. The portable ran on batteries, the larger units did not.

Several of the videos were made at Red House, mostly in 1971 and early 1972, when we left Crestline for Cowichan Centre for Gestalt Learning, in Duncan, British Columbia, at the request of Fritz Perls, Ray Walker and Sarah Warsher. Continue reading

JAL Chapter 1 — Psychometry & Time Travel with Ancient Beads

Mill Street Gallery featured thousands of ancient and medieval beads back in the day.

If you’ve ever wanted to contact a past life, ancient beads are a great and inexpensive way to make solid and powerful quantum connections. Since I acquired my ancient beads, which was from 1960-1989, I’ve been salting them away for psychometric use.

Many of the more expensive beads went into Jewels of Ancient Lands productions, sold many years ago in Beverly Hills, San Francisco, New York & Atlanta jewelry boutiques for many thousands of dollars.

Those fabulous ancient and medieval glass and stone beads are long-gone, and cannot be repeated. The bead market that came out of Mali, Africa, has vanished forever — all you’ll find at that once-great international bead market are beads coming out of other places, notably Pakistan, China and Ethiopia.
