We wanted to share this work by Faith Ringgold in honor of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day today. 🕊️

FAITH RINGGOLD
Coming to Jones Road Part 2: Martin Luther King Jr. Tanka #3: I Have A Dream, 2010
Acrylic on canvas framed with fabric
61 x 42 in.

Martin Luther King - I have a dream speech, Aug 28, 1963
"I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out
the true meaning of its creed. We hold these truths to be selfevident: that all men are created equal.
I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia the sons
of former slaves and the sons of former slave owners will be able
to sit down together at the table of brotherhood.
I have a dream that one day even the state of Mississippi, a state
sweltering with heat of oppression will be transformed into an
oasis of freedom and justice…
I have a dream that my four little children will not be judged by
the color of their skin but by the content of their character…
I have a dream today…"
Martin Luther King 1929 – 1968 Atlanta, Georgia

Faith Ringgold pictured signing her 'Woman Looking in a Mirror' prints at her studio in Englewood, NJ.

Faith tells New York Times Style Magazine, "In the 1970s, there was a trend among artists not to sign their work. I think they had a strange idea that because they were so famous and their art was so recognized, they didn’t need to sign it. I knew that would lead to problems: A lot of people’s works were lost. I didn’t embrace that. In fact, I created a piece called “Ego Painting” (1969) where my name was the only design. It was a statement against that movement. I’ve always signed everything I create. I didn’t think there was anything wrong with wanting people to know that I made a piece."

We remember nationally renowned artist, Jack Stuppin, who has died aged 89. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and loved ones. 🕊️🤍⁠

As Dan Taylor writes for The Press Democrat: ⁠
"Nationally renowned artist Jack Stuppin created a landscape style so striking — with its bright reds, yellows, greens and oranges — that his fans reported spotting “Stuppin hills” as they drove through Sonoma County.⁠

“I’ve had hundreds of people tell me they can’t drive through Northern California now without seeing the landscape in a different way,“ the painter said in a 2009 interview with The Press Democrat.⁠

⁠JACK STUPPIN
Apple Trees, 2009
Oil on canvas
52 x 65 in.



For Jack Stuppin, painting the California landscape has a dual purpose. First and foremost, it is the act of painting itself, the primal drive of every artist to express life through color, shape, line and form. But the paintings also serve as political statements, or maybe a political plea to understand and respect the insistence of nature before we foul it beyond repair.⁠

Jack Stuppin’s work has been reviewed and written about by such distinguished critics and scholars as Donald Kuspit, Mark Van Proyen, Susan Landauer and others. His paintings have been exhibited regularly in group and solo shows since 1985 in venues on the East and West Coasts, including the San Jose Museum of Art, the Crocker Art Museum in Sacramento, Columbia University in New York, and the de Young Museum/Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco. Jack Stuppin’s paintings are represented in several major public collections including the Butler Institute of Art, the de Young Museum/Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco, the U.S. Department of State Art in Embassies Program, the Oakland Museum, the Luther Burbank Center, the Crocker Art Museum, the Yale University Art Gallery and others.⁠

A big man with a distinctive voice, Stuppin was known as an exuberant and forceful advocate for the arts in Sonoma County. He died peacefully Tuesday at his home in Sebastopol at age 89, said his wife, Diane Stuppin.

NEW EXHIBITION! ⁠

ACA Galleries and MB Abram are pleased to announce John Baeder’s first exhibition at the gallery. 'JOHN BAEDER: Looking Back 1972 - 2018' is now at ACA Galleries and will be on view through February 18th, 2023. ⁠

JOHN BAEDER⁠
Pink Ice Cream, 2012
Watercolor on paper
17 x 22 in.

Comprising five decades of work from 1972 – 2018 the show includes the last remaining paintings from the artist’s personal collection alongside his final series of Matchbook Cover paintings as well as his luminous still life photographs.⁠

A consummate collector of Americana, Folk Art, classic cars, vintage post cards, and match book covers, to name a few, these artefacts serve as potent source material for the artist. His early paintings depict the optimism of Post-War America – classic diners with streamlined designs and shiny aluminum surfaces – Big Boy and other icons of roadside popular culture - motels and campgrounds dependent on a new economy which allowed for automobiles and more leisure activity; the paintings embody a sense of hope, prosperity and ambition. As years pass the paintings document the decline and deterioration of these places signalling a shift away from the idealism so prevalent in the earlier works. ⁠

Baeder’s work can be found in numerous museum collections including the Cooper- Hewitt Museum; Smithsonian Institution, NY; Denver Art Museum, CO; Whitney Museum of American Art, NY; Yale University Art Gallery, New Haven, CT; among many others. In 2007 the Morris Museum in Augusta, Georgia organized the retrospective exhibition and accompanying book Pleasant Journeys and Good Eats Along the Way: The Paintings of John Baeder. Other books about the artist’s work include John Baeder’s Road Well Taken, Jay Williams (2015) and Diners, by Vincent Scully (1977).⁠

Comprising five decades of work from 1972 – 2018 the show includes the last remaining paintings from the artist’s personal collection alongside his final series of Matchbook Cover paintings as well as his luminous still life photographs.

A consummate collector of Americana, Folk Art, classic cars, vintage post cards, and match book covers, to name a few, these artefacts serve as potent source material for the artist. His early paintings depict the optimism of Post-War America – classic diners with streamlined designs and shiny aluminum surfaces – Big Boy and other icons of roadside popular culture - motels and campgrounds dependent on a new economy which allowed for automobiles and more leisure activity; the paintings embody a sense of hope, prosperity and ambition. As years pass the paintings document the decline and deterioration of these places signalling a shift away from the idealism so prevalent in the earlier works.

Baeder’s work can be found in numerous museum collections including the Cooper- Hewitt Museum; Smithsonian Institution, NY; Denver Art Museum, CO; Whitney Museum of American Art, NY; Yale University Art Gallery, New Haven, CT; among many others. In 2007 the Morris Museum in Augusta, Georgia organized the retrospective exhibition and accompanying book Pleasant Journeys and Good Eats Along the Way: The Paintings of John Baeder. Other books about the artist’s work include John Baeder’s Road Well Taken, Jay Williams (2015) and Diners, by Vincent Scully (1977).
