KPIC CBS 4 News, Park West GalleryDouglas High School Art Program Gets Donation
WINSTON, Ore. (KPIC CBS 4 News)—The Douglas High School art department got a big gift Monday morning, when they received a donation of art and books from Park West Gallery out of Southfield, Michigan. It was all thanks to the friendship that was struck between Winston Mayor Rex Stevens and a renowned artist.

Art students and faculty members from the high school were on hand to see the donation, which included 20 works created by Park West artists.

Mayor Stevens says they told the founder and CEO of Park West, Albert Scaglione, about the successful art program at Douglas High School, and of the fiscal challenges facing the school district. Scaglione was impressed that a small, tight budgeted district would still place an emphasis on the arts.

Artist Dominic Pangborn, who represents Park West, was on hand to present it to the school. Pangborn also created a special painting of a tiger to present to the city, and is also creating a new logo for the City of Winston. He says they hope to inspire the students. “We wanted to introduce diversity in terms of style, technique, artists and so on, so you’ve got a really good mixture here,” said Pangborn.

Art teacher Deborah Cusack says the donation will be a big boost to the art program at the school. “This is an art teacher’s dream, usually we have to get the money, put them all on a school bus, get chaperons and haul them to Portland or Ashland. Here, it was brought right to our city of Winston, and it’s just a wonderful, wonderful event,” said Cusack.

Stevens told KPIC News, “The value is how much these young and aspiring artists here in this community can take and benefit from this.” The art has an estimated value at up to $40,000 for the 20 pieces that were donated.

Pangborn presented the 4×4 foot painting of the tiger to the Winston City Council at their meeting Monday night. Thanks to Pangborn, the city will soon be showing off its new logo, that features the cheetah with Douglas Fir trees behind it.

Park West Gallery Launches Joan Miro Website

Park West Gallery Joan Miro Website

Park West Gallery is proud to announce the launch of its latest master artist website, which is dedicated to Joan Miro! A surrealist master, Joan Miro is viewed by many as one of the most innovative and influential artists of the 20th Century.

The active and archived Park West Gallery Miro Collection includes more than 1000 works. These include intaglio graphic works, lithographs, drawings, and works created “after” Miro paintings in lithography and pochoir (an early form of stencil printing) under the artist’s supervision and control.

“Miro’s artistic legacy is huge,” comments Morris Shapiro, Park West Gallery’s Director. “Although he was one of the least understood masters of modern art during his lifetime and still even today, his work has influenced countless artists. He was the driving force behind visual surrealism and worked tirelessly creating one of the greatest collections of graphic works in history. We at Park West are delighted to now share our extraordinary collection with visitors to our new Miro website.”

Art enthusiasts can view multiple galleries of Joan Miro graphic works while learning about the motivation behind the works on the Park West Joan Miro website. Also featured on the site is a thorough biography highlighting both personal and artistic milestones in Miro’s life.

Dominic Pangborn Donates Artwork to Wigs 4 Kids

Internationally acclaimed artist Dominic Pangborn is known for his breathtaking works of art as well as his numerous contributions to non-profit organizations the world over. Pangborn’s latest philanthropic efforts include creating a painting titled Mother and Child to hang in the new Wigs 4 Kids Wellness Center. The unveiling of the artwork was the highlight of a recent fundraising event for the organization.

Wigs 4 KidsThe fundraiser, called “The Right Combination,” was held April 30 at Art Van Furniture on 14 Mile Road in Warren. The event was celebrated by more than 400 guests and raised nearly $17,000 for the Wellness Center Capital Campaign launch. The funds raised on April 30, combined with the $300,000 in recent donations, bring the campaign to 25 percent of its goal of $1.25 million.

“Art Van’s kindness, and the support and generosity of people like Mr. Van Elslander in the community make our organization possible,” said Maggie Varney, Founder and CEO of Wigs 4 Kids. “This really is the right combination of people to help create an environment under one roof to help these kids in need, hence the title of the campaign and party. At our new center, we’ll be able to help more children in one year than we’ve seen in the previous six years.”

Wigs 4 Kids is a nonprofit organization that provides comprehensive resources for children and teens dealing with challenges due to hair loss. It has been operating from a 600-square-foot facility for the past six years – and thanks to this campaign, will be opening a new 2,900-square-foot facility on Harper Road, north of 12 Mile Road in St. Clair Shores. The opening of the Wigs 4 Kids Wellness Center is scheduled for June 5 and will offer multiple resources – including educational, psychological, social and professional services – all to help self-esteem challenges many children face during hair loss.

For more information on Wigs 4 Kids, including volunteering and donation opportunities, visit www.Wigs4Kids.org. For more information on Dominic Pangborn, visit the Park West Gallery website to view the Park West Pangborn Collection and his artist biography.

Rembrandt’s Recession: Passion and Prints in the Dutch Golden Age

The Timken Museum of Art in Balboa Park, California had record attendance while featuring its latest Rembrandt van Rijn exhibit, so much so that it extended the exhibit’s run date until this Sunday, May 9th. So if you are in the area, be sure to check it out!

Christ Preaching (La Petite Tombe), c1652, Rembrandt van RijnRembrandt’s Recession: Passion and Prints in the Dutch Golden Age features 14 selections representing Rembrandt’s illustrious career as a printmaker.

Accompanied by a fully illustrated catalog, the exhibition contains some of the artist’s best-known prints, including such landmark examples as Christ Preaching (Le Petite Tombe) from around 1652 and Three Crosses from around 1660.

An event has also been added to the Timken’s “Art in the Afternoon” series. Museum director John Wilson will give a talk about the financial woes and personal issues that marked and marred Rembrandt’s life during the 1650s.

“The images all display Rembrandt’s gift as one of the greatest artists of the human condition. All the prints are exceptional impressions and masterpieces of 17th century printmaking by one of the greatest printmakers of all time,” said John Wilson, Ph.D., executive director of the Timken Museum of Art. “This is a perfect exhibition for our museum which has long been known for being home to San Diego’s only Rembrandt painting on public display.”

One of the greatest artists of all time, Rembrandt van Rijn is equally famous for his extraordinarily creative etchings and drawings as his paintings. Rembrandt’s Recession: Passion and Prints in the Dutch Golden Age, examines the artist’s New Testament subject matter in light of his life and times.

For additional Rembrandt etchings, visit www.parkwest-rembrandt.com to view a selection of prints from the Park West Rembrandt Collection. For over 40 years, Park West Gallery has been a world-wide source for collectors of original etchings by Rembrandt Van Rijn, with its collection including rare 17th century impressions and nearly 700 different posthumous impressions.
