Introducing “Honey Bunny Always Gets Her Rabbit!”, a fine art reproduction on canvas by artist Bob Elias, edition of 40 with 14 Artist Proofs. The signed and numbered edition measures 12″ x 15″ and is priced at just $295 with gallery wrap. The APs measure 16″ x 20″ and are only $525, hand-embellished. Delivery available in time for Valentine’s Day giving.

Bob Elias has been painting for the Chuck Jones Gallery since 2011 and enjoys a loyal following of collectors and fans. He’s constantly inspired by Chuck Jones’s Warner Bros. cartoons and also by Jones’s character drawings, especially the lines. Bob’s background in sign-painting is apparent in his masterful use of color-blocking and how he juxtaposes contrasting colors to imbue the image with its fanciful subject matter.

A passionate surfer, Bob can often be found at San Onofre with his long-board. His mastery of this simple, yet difficult sport has contributed to his successful discipline as a painter. His paintings are full of his joie de vivre and yet his technical virtuosity adds another layer of perfection to the finished canvas.

Artist Tom Everhart Premier Exhibit in San Diego

Artist Tom Everhart, whose special 20 year friendship with Peanuts creator, Charles M Schulz, has influenced his work of the last 27 years, brings an exhibition of his paintings to San Diego for the first time. 

TOM EVERHART:  Opening Night

Exhibit of Original Paintings and Mixed Media Work 

THE SAN DIEGO PREMIERE OF THE COLLECTION

San Diego, CA – January 2016 –Artist Tom Everhart, world renowned for his Charles Schulz-influenced paintings presents his latest exhibition entitled “Opening Night”. This extraordinary collection of works will be on exhibit and available for acquisition at the Chuck Jones Gallery in San Diego beginning February 13, 2016 and presenting through March 11, 2016. This is Tom Everhart’s first exhibition in San Diego. “Opening Night”, a new fine art edition on paper will premier at the exhibit and will be an exclusive to the Chuck Jones Gallery for the run of the exhibit.

Everhart and legendary Peanuts creator Charles Schulz enjoyed both a personal friendship and an artistic relationship greatly valued by both; a mutual respect so powerful that Schulz encouraged Everhart to experiment with his cartoon language in Everhart’s own medium of Fine Art Painting.

As a result, a legal agreement was arranged that would allow Everhart to use Schulz’s visual subject matter in his art for “The Term Of His Life”.

Everhart’s Schulz-influenced work has been shown not only at the Louvre in Paris, but also at the Charles Schulz Museum in Santa Rosa, and gallery shows around the world.

About Tom Everhart

Tom Everhart was born on May 21, 1952 in Washington, D.C. He began his under graduate studies at Yale University of Art and Architecture in 1970. In 1972 he participated in an independent study program under Earl Hoffman at St. Mary’s College. He returned to the Yale School of Art and Architecture in 1974 where he completed his graduate work in 1976, followed by post-graduate studies at the Musée de l’Orangerie, in Paris. He taught Life Drawing and Painting, briefly from 1979 to 1980, at Antioch College.  This exhibition is greatly inspired by the artist’s years in New York spent with and inspired by fellow artists Jean-Michel Basquiat and Andy Warhol, among others.

In 1980, Tom Everhart was introduced to cartoonist Charles M. Schulz at Schulz’s studios in Santa Rosa, California. A few weeks prior to their meeting, Everhart, having absolutely no education in cartooning, found himself involved in a freelance project that required him to draw and present Peanuts© renderings to Schulz’s studios. Preparing as he would the drawings and studies for his large-scale skeleton/nature related paintings; he enlarged some of the cartoonist’s comic strips on a twenty-five foot wall in his studio which eliminated the perimeter lines of the cartoon box, leaving only the marks of the cartoonist. Schulz’s painterly pen stroke, now larger than life, translated into painterly brush strokes and was now a language that overwhelmingly connected to Everhart’s own form of expression and communication. Completely impressed with Schulz’s line, he was able to reproduce the line art almost exactly, which in turn impressed Schulz at their meeting. It was at this time that Everhart confirmed his obsession with Schulz’s line art style. This mutual fascination with each other’s artwork formed their ongoing relationship and furthered Everhart’s education of Schulz’s line style.

A few years later, while still painting full-time on his previous body of work in his studio, Everhart began drawing special projects for Schulz and United Media, both in New York and Tokyo. These authentic Schulz-style drawings included covers and interiors of magazines, art for the White House, and the majority of the Met Life advertising campaign. When Everhart was not painting, he was now considered to be the only fine artist authorized and educated by Schulz to draw the actual Schulz line of characters.

Everhart began using Charles Schulz’s comic strip, Peanuts©, as subject matter for his paintings, eventually replacing his skeleton and nature related motifs in 1988. The inspiration came to Everhart in Johns Hopkins Hospital, where he was undergoing several operations for stage 4 colon / liver cancer in the summer of 1988. Everhart recalls lying in a hospital bed surrounded by enough flowers to open a florist shop, piles of art books and a stack of Peanuts© comic strips sent to him by Schulz. The light streaming in from the window almost projected the new images of his future Schulz inspired paintings on the wall. All the images in Everhart’s work are in some respect derived from Schulz’s Peanuts© comic strip.

In January 1990 Everhart’s Schulz related work were exhibited at the Louvre in Paris and subsequently at the Los Angeles County Museum of Natural History; Museum of Fine Arts, Montreal; Suntory Museum of Art, Tokyo and Osaka, Japan; Charles M. Schulz Museum, Santa Rosa, and in fine art galleries in Rome, Venice, Milan, Minneapolis, New York, Baltimore, Chicago, and Las Vegas.

In 1991, Charles Schulz and United Media drafted a legal agreement to allow Tom Everhart to use subject matter from Schulz’s Peanuts© strip in his art for “the term of his life”.

In 1992, “Pigpen’s Dirtballs”, a 72″ x 128″ painting was filmed with the artist in progress for the CBS special “The Fabulous Funnies”. A series of four lithographs were published in 1996 and a series of four more lithographs entitled, “To Every Dog There Is A Season”, followed in 1997. Over the next ten years S2 Art Editions and Tom Everhart would create an astonishing body of lithographic work consisting of over seventy-four lithographs.

In 1997, “Snoopy, Not Your Average Dog”, published by Harper Collins, featured an essay on and reproductions of Tom Everhart’s Schulz-inspired paintings.

In 2000, his first solo museum show was launched at the Suntory Museum of Art in Tokyo and Osaka, Japan. The Exhibition traveled to five other locations in Japan until the year 2002.

CBS, in a Charles M. Schulz tribute, designed an entire sound stage, comprised solely of Everhart’s paintings, that were used with host Whoopi Goldberg, throughout the hour long special, in May of 2000.

After Charles Schulz passed away in February of 2000 it left Everhart with a deep sense of loss as well as an even stronger desire to communicate the incredible gift bestowed on him by Schulz.

In 2000 Everhart first visited French Polynesia, a small group of islands in the center of the Pacific Ocean. His trips between French Polynesia and Venice, California have had a significant effect on the paintings, most obviously in the luminous color palette. More importantly, however, it offered him a new way of seeing the work that he was dedicated to continuing.

The Charles M Schulz Museum opened in August 2002 and the following year Everhart had the honor of presenting his works in a solo exhibition there titled, “Under the Influence”. He would also be included in the Museum’s 2011, “Pop’d From the Panel” exhibition, along with works by renowned POP artists, Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein.

In 2011 he exhibited 97 works, titled “Crashing the Party” in a solo exhibition at AFA in New York.

Tom Everhart was brought in during the very first few days of the making of the Peanuts movie in New York to share his knowledge of Schulz’s art with the full creative team.

Tom Everhart continues to lecture around the world about the artwork of Charles M Schulz and to communicate the unique collaborative relationship they shared, as a cartoonist and a painter.

After living in San Francisco, Paris, New York, Washington D.C., Baltimore, and London, in 1997 Tom Everhart moved to Venice, California where he now lives with Jennifer, his wife and director of their studio.

Today, Everhart is the only fine artist educated by Schulz and authorized to use subject matter from Schulz’s Peanuts ©strip to create fine art.

A Message from Master American Portrait Artist, Fran Lew

FBmarilyn

Marilyn Monroe is considered by many film scholars as the most famous female movie star of all time. Monroe, famous for playing ‘dumb blonde’ characters became one of the most popular sex symbols of the 1950s. No other Hollywood star has ever inspired such a wide range of emotions – from lust to pity, from envy to remorse. Her legacy lives on today as she continues to be a major pop culture icon. Baby Boomers, Generation Xers, and Millennials, I give you her timeless soft tantalizing seductive persona in this Chuck Jones Gallery limited edition entitled ‘Marilyn’. The Chuck Jones Gallery has paid great attention to the nuances and details in my drawing. I have hand signed each print in this edition. Contact your Chuck Jones Gallery representative. This small edition won’t last very long.

Edition of 85, hand-signed by the artist, just $225 unframed. An excellent holiday gift!

Calling All Artists! Red Dot Auction VI!

Dear Artists and Friends of the Chuck Jones Center for Creativity,

Preparations are underway for the Sixth Annual Red Dot Auction benefiting the Chuck Jones Center for Creativity, scheduled for Thursday, May 12 and Friday, May 13, 2016.

red_dot_vi_2016

Today we’re writing to ask you to donate a work of art to this year’s Sixth Annual Red Dot Auction. The canvas provided is 12” square and as last year, we ask that you sign the artwork on the reverse.  You may prefer to work on paper or another substrate and that’s fine as long as we can mount it to the 12” square canvas for presentation the night of the event. The artwork should be signed on the reverse so that bidders at this silent auction will not know who has created which painting.

“What should I paint?” Chuck’s life spanned most of the 20th century and with such a wealth of inspiration why not the life and times of Chuck Jones? That should not limit you to cartoon-related imagery, although many of the most sought after works at past Red Dot Auctions were inspired by his Looney Tunes creations; you might be inspired by his love of puns, his life drawings, or the fact that he never had a cavity his entire life.

DDS_Red_Dot_2016

Won’t you share your gifts with us and with the Center’s members and patrons?  If you will, please drop me a note with your mailing address and I’ll get a canvas out to you or drop by the Center to pick up a canvas. Have an artist friend who would like to be a part of this exciting project?  Please send them my way:.  Robert@ChuckJonesCenter.org.

Canvases are due back no later than January 31, 2016! Again this year we are partnering with Heritage Auctions to bring the Red Dot Auction to the attention of their over 800,000 subscribers. This online auction will go live mid-April 2016 and end the evening of Tuesday, May 10, 2016. In order to be included in it, your canvas must arrive no later than January 31, 2015. Your name and biography will be available to their subscribers!

And again this year a commemorative poster, similar to the one shown, will be printed; 30 canvases will be selected to represent this year’s Red Dot Auction. A limited number of the posters will be produced and sold the evening of the event. To be considered for inclusion, your canvas must arrive no later than January 31, 2016.

Thank you in advance for your generosity, time, and commitment to Igniting Imagination for Life!

All the best, Robert

Path of Pilgrimage–New Paintings by Joshua Smith at the Chuck Jones Center for Creativity

THE PATH OF PILGRIMAGE

New Works by Joshua Smith

An Inspire Exhibition at the Chuck Jones Center for Creativity
Opens October 13th

Costa Mesa, CA, September 1, 2015: Artists are often asked where their inspiration comes from; when Orange County artist, Joshua Smith, is asked that question he is quick to respond that he relies on his dreams and his faith for inspiration. Working in a vortex of color and often on over twenty varying sizes of canvas at a time, Smith, not unlike the dreams he credits with inspiring his work, paints in a fever of remembrance, memory, mysticism, and metaphor.

Into the Calm, oil on canvas, 40" x 40", by Joshua Smith

Into the Calm, oil on canvas, 40″ x 40″, by Joshua Smith

“I take my visual clues from architecture and from religion, allowing my paintings to be a reflection of art and of my faith,” says Smith, “and like a small child, I fanaticize my surroundings, the sky’s the limit.” A technically proficient oil painter, Smith, with his Masters in fine art from Hartford Art School at the University of Hartford, Connecticut, approaches his work like a metaphysical journey through some unknown reality; he believes in the omnipotence of the dream, the fantasy.

With his emphasis on landscape, his colors lay one on top of the other in a powdery mist of memory; chairs, paths, trees, butterflies, nests, and small home-like structures stand in lonely isolation, but still he imbues each canvas with the emotion of hope and of home. The paintings’ dense, fragile surfaces and areas of multi-chromatic richness recall ancient wall frescos.

“The Center is thrilled to present this Inspire Exhibition of work by the artist, Joshua Smith,” says Craig Kausen, chairman of the board and Chuck Jones’s grandson. “His work, like that of other great artists, inspires each of us to view our world a little differently, with faith and hope; and, perhaps, to question our responsibility to the world around us.”

Opening night reception for the artist is Tuesday, October 13 from 7 to 9 PM at the Chuck Jones Center for Creativity, 3321 Hyland Ave., Suite A, in Costa Mesa at the South Coast Collection (SoCo). The reception is free and open to the public. The exhibit will close on November 30. A portion of proceeds benefit the programs of the Center, a 501(c)3 public charity.

A graduate of the Hartford Art School, University of Hartford (Connecticut) with a Masters in painting, Smith received his undergraduate degree at the Laguna College of Art & Design.  He has participated in over 30 group exhibitions and more than 25 solo exhibitions in the past 10 years. Awarded the prestigious Best New SOLO Artist at the New York International Art Expo in 2007, Smith recently exhibited at the Carousel du Louvre with the Socièté Nationale des Beaux. He has been involved in numerous projects with The Guildford Handcraft Center, taught as adjunct professor at the Hartford Art School and has been exhibition curator at the Nathan J Gallery, Farmington, Ct. Currently, he lives in Orange County with his wife and two children.

The Chuck Jones Center for Creativity was founded by the four-time Academy Award-winning legendary animation pioneer and creator, Chuck Jones in 1999. The Center’s vision is a world where creativity is known and experienced in every discipline, by the many, not just the few. It is located in the South Coast Collection (SoCo) at 3321 Hyland Ave., Suite A, Costa Mesa, CA. www.ChuckJonesCenter.org. 949-660-7793 x 107.
