ABOUT THE BERGHOFF-COWDEN EDITIONS COLLECTION The Berghoff Art Gallery first opened in the 1980’s as Soho South Gallery in Safety Harbor, Florida. In 1988, Lois Berghoff and Dorothy Cowden evolved the Gallery into the Berghoff-Cowden Editions, a collaborative, screenprint workshop first located in a converted warehouse by the University of Tampa, Florida and ultimately settling in New Port Richey, Florida. The workshop specialized in publishing unique and small editions of hand-pulled screen-prints and monoprints. The environment created within this experimental workshop inspired artists to innovate conventional screen printing techniques in a creative manner never seen before or since. Their editions included hand-painting, collage, flocking, cutting and stitching, paper manipulation such as folding, layering and cutting as well as the incorporation of exotic fabrics and layered Japanese papers. The eclectic creative-processes of the workshop attracted a diverse, global group of renowned artists working in several movements including abstraction, expressionism, realism, sculpture and pattern and decoration. A partial roster of artists who create exceptional works in this space includes: Miriam “Mimi” Schapiro (Canadian, American, b. 1923 – d. 2015), Brad Davis (American, b. 1942), Frank Faulkner (American, 1946), Sam Gilliam (American, b. 1933), Roberto Juarez (American, b. 1952), George Sugarman (American, b. 1912 – d. 1999) and Robert Rahway Zakanitch (American, b. 1935). The workshop also invited Italian artists Marilu Eustachio (Italian, b. 1934), Oliviero Rainaldi (Italian, b. 1956) and Cloti Ricciardi (Italian, 20th / 21st centuries). Recognizing the importance of this collaboration, The Polk Museum of Art in Lakeland, Florida, curated and exhibited a collection of these works from the collection of Dorothy Mitchell entitled, “Expanding Expressions” this exhibit was supported by the Polk Museum of Art, Florida Division of Cultural Affairs and the Florida Arts Council and was exhibited throughout the United States at several prominent museums from 1997 until early 2000. Rare-Era is honored to offer hand-selected pieces from this magical time directly from the Berghoff Personal Collection, these choice examples of the editions have never been offered publicly!

BIOGRAPHY: MIRIAM “MIMI” SCHAPIRO (Canadian, American, b. 1923 – d. 2015) Miriam Schapiro is known as one of the leaders of the pattern and decoration and the feminist art movement. She was born in Canada and raised in Brooklyn; while in High School, Schapiro studied at the Museum of Modern Art and the Federal Art Project the visual arts extension of the Great Depression-era Works Progress Administration. She attended college at the State University of Iowa, where she received three degrees between 1945 and 1949, a B.A., M.A. and M.F.A. She went on to teach in several locations including: State University of Iowa; Parsons School of Design, New York City; University of California, Berkeley; University of San Diego; California Institute of the Arts, Valencia; and the Tyler School of Art, Philadelphia. It was while teaching at CalArts in 1970 that Schapiro and Judy Chicago taught a co-directed a course on feminism that led to the creation of the Feminist Art Program. Part of this program involved a collaborative project called “Womanhouse” which involved several female artists who exhibited in an old house and presented works dealing with feminist issues. Schapiro exhibited a doll house, each room symbolically built to represent her own female world. This piece is now held in the Smithsonian Museum of American Art, 1997.112A-B. Author Elise LaRose comments about "Womanhouse:" "A decade of personal and political struggle with feminist issues crystallized in (Schapiro's) pioneering and collaborative involvement. Co-directing, with Judy Chicago, the Feminist Art Program at the California Institute of the Arts in Valencia, California, they started off the school year by involving their students in a project which would allow them to project all their dreams and fantasies by creating an exclusively female environment in an old house. After renovating the house, they transformed it with performance and art works that dealt with specifically feminist issues. They used this explorative process as a means of restructuring their identities as women artists in a patriarchal (art) world..." "Since then, Miriam Schapiro has been giving the history of women's 'covert' art a brightly lit showcase. The once-tabooed scraps; sequins, buttons, threads, rick rack, spangles, yarn; silk, taffeta, cotton, burlap, and wool, were excavated from the musty attics and dredged from the dark closets of art history. Now, they are assembled and coordinated with emotional and creative thought into 'femmages.' Having taken embroidered upholstery out of the parlor, quilts off beds, clothing off hangers, scrapbooks out of trunks, and tapestries from beneath our feet, Schapiro re-educates us about a history of buried art, women's art." After this project, she created paintings incorporating handkerchiefs, lace and other fabrics in metaphorical statements of liberation. As the leading member of the Pattern and Decoration Movement (or P & D) of the mid '70s, Schapiro incorporated dress, costume, and decorative patterns into her art. This art movement challenged traditional Western European art by featuring decorative patterns and textiles from other cultures such as Chinese, Indian, Islamic, and Mexican. The use of textiles also served symbolically of feminine labor. Schapiro's collages, or "femmages," as she sometimes calls them, included the needlework of other, perhaps long forgotten women. Schapiro has attempted to break the barrier between art and craft by reintroducing pattern and decoration into the modernist art world. "Femmage," stands for the female laborer's hand-sewn work (such as embroidery, quilting, cross-stitching, etc.) that rivals and precedes the "high-art" collage. Her work, The Poet #2, combines pattern with painting. Schapiro comments, "I felt that by making a large canvas magnificent in color, design, and proportion, filling it with fabrics and quilt blocks, I could raise a housewife's lowered consciousness." Her involvement with consciousness-raising efforts, for which she traveled nationwide encouraging women to form support groups and emerge from isolation, earned her the nickname "Mimi Appleseed." Schapiro received six honorary Doctorate degrees, Grants from the Rockefeller Foundation, a grant for artists in residency at Bellagio Study Center in Bellagio, Italy; the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation Fellowship; the Djerassi Foundation Residency in Woodside, CA; Atlantic Center for the Arts Residency - Master Class; a National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship; Ford Foundation Grant at Tamarind; the Honors Award, The Woman's Caucus for Art; N.Y. State Teacher's Assn. Certificate of Recognition; N.Y. State NARAL, 25th Anniversary; a Yaddo Fellowship. Schapiro’s work is held in numerous museums which include: In New York - Brooklyn Museum of Art, Museum of Modern Art, Jewish Museum, Guild Hall Museum, Metropolitan Museum of Art; National Gallery of Art, Whitney Museum of Art; In Washington D.C. - Hirshhorn & Sculpture Garden, Smithsonian Museum of American Art, D.C.; In Florida - Orlando Museum of Art, Polk Museum of Art, Leepa-Rattner Museum of Art; Allen Memorial Art Museum on Oberlin, Ohio; Missoula Museum of Arts, Montana; Harvard University’s Fogg Museum; Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, New York; Peter Ludwig Collection, Aachen, Germany; Art Gallery of New South Wales, Sidney, Australia Ref: Biography courtesy of: http://www.askart.com/auction_records/Miriam_Mimi_Schapiro/100044/Miriam_Mimi_Schapiro.aspx, https://www.goshen.edu/news/2001/11/12/miriam-schapiro/, http://www.matrixpress.org/miriam-schapiro.html.

BIOGRAPHY: SAM GILLIAM (American, b. 1933) Born in Tupelo, Mississippi and growing up in Louisville, Kentucky, Gilliam is an African American, Color Field painter who is associated with the Washington Color School, Abstract Expressionism and Lyrical Abstraction. He works on stretched, draped, and wrapped canvas, and adds sculptural 3D and collage elements. Circa 1965, Gilliam was recognized as the first artist to introduce the idea of a painted canvas hanging without stretcher bars, a major contribution to the Color Field School. Gilliam received an MA in painting at the University of Louisville in 1961 and an honorary Doctorate of Humane Letters at the University of Louisville in 1980 and Northwestern University in 1990. Gilliam came to Washington, D.C. in 1962 and joined the second generation of Washington Color Painters. Like the first generation of the group, which included Morris Louis and Kenneth Noland, he was interested in the qualities of color as a material substance in and of itself. He is known for fearlessly utilizing color and pattern and applying huge quantities of acrylic paint and gel across large canvases, occasionally cutting the canvas into geometric shapes; triangles and rectangles, wedges and arcs, and stitching the parts together in an improvisational way which has been compared to jazz music and quilting. Gilliam’s work includes sculpture, painting and a combination of these techniques. This technique is echoed in the monoprints Gilliam produced at the Berghoff-Cowden workshop. While the compositions are flat, the layers and geometry create visual dimension. Gilliam received a Guggenheim Fellowship and the Norman Walt Harris Prize from the Art Institute of Chicago. His work is in the collections of the Museum of African Art and the Corcoran Gallery in Washington, D.C., the Leepa-Rattner and Polk Art Museum in Florida, California African American Museum; Metropolitan Museum of Art, Museum of Modern Art, and National Gallery of Art in New York. In 1987 he was selected by the Smithsonian Art Collectors Program to produce a print to celebrate the opening of the S. Dylan Ripley Center in the National Mall. He donated his talent to produce In Celebration, a 35-color limited-edition serigraph that highlighted his trademark use of color, and the sale of which benefitted the Smithsonian Associates, the continuing education branch of the larger Smithsonian Institution. "In Celebration, 1987 by Sam Gilliam". In early 2009, he again donated his talents to the Smithsonian Associates to produce a 90-color serigraph entitled Museum Moment, which he describes as "a celebration of art." He has exhibited at the Museum of Modern Art, New York City and Walker Art Center, Minneapolis, Minnesota and has an exhibition at the Mnuchin Gallery in New York opening November 2, 2017 (http://www.mnuchingallery.com/exhibitions/sam-gilliam). Other major exhibitions include: Gilliam/Krebs/McGowin, Corcoran Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C., 1969 Gilliam/Edwards/Williams: Extensions, Wadsworth Atheneum, Hartford, Connecticut, 1974 Modern Painters at the Corcoran: Sam Gilliam, Corcoran Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C., 1983 African American Art from the Collection, Philadelphia Museum of Art, Philadelphia, 1990 Golden Windows Inside Gold, Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, 1993-1995 Forty-Fourth Biennial Exhibition of Contemporary American Painting, Corcoran Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C.

By 1918 she would follow her Sister, Carmela, to Vaudeville and perform mainly among the New York Metropolitan Opera. Her career would find her on contract to Victor and Capital Records – at Capital she would become their first female indentured artist – then performing all over the world; she is still generally considered by music critics to have been one of the greatest sopranos of the past 100 years (Pavarotti called Ponselle "The Queen of Queens in all of singing"!) … She would retire to a custom-built Mediterranean-style Estate named ‘Villa Pace” outside Baltimore, Maryland. There she would improve the Baltimore Civic Opera Company, and coach some of the finest Opera Singers of the 1950’s and beyond, including Placido Domingo. At 84-years-of-age she died at her Estate in 1981. She lives on among her MANY recordings and captured performances, including at least 2 written biographies and a self-penned memoir.

ABOUT THE BERGHOFF-COWDEN EDITIONS COLLECTION The Berghoff Art Gallery first opened in the 1980’s as Soho South Gallery in Safety Harbor, Florida. In 1988, Lois Berghoff and Dorothy Cowden evolved the Gallery into the Berghoff-Cowden Editions, a collaborative, screenprint workshop first located in a converted warehouse by the University of Tampa, Florida and ultimately settling in New Port Richey, Florida. The workshop specialized in publishing unique and small editions of hand-pulled screen-prints and monoprints. The environment created within this experimental workshop inspired artists to innovate conventional screen printing techniques in a creative manner never seen before or since. Their editions included elements of hand-painting, collage, flocking, cutting and stitching, and paper manipulation such as folding, layering and cutting as well as the incorporation of exotic fabrics and layered Japanese papers. The eclectic creative-processes of the workshop attracted a diverse, global group of renowned artists working in several movements including: abstract, abstract expressionism, realism, sculpture and pattern and decoration. A partial roster of artists who created exceptional works in this space includes: Miriam “Mimi” Schapiro (Canadian, American, b. 1923 – d. 2015), Brad Davis (American, b. 1942), Frank Faulkner (American, 1946), Sam Gilliam (American, b. 1933), Roberto Juarez (American, b. 1952), George Sugarman (American, b. 1912 – d. 1999) and Robert Rahway Zakanitch (American, b. 1935). The workshop also invited Italian artists Marilu Eustachio (Italian, b. 1934), Oliviero Rainaldi (Italian, b. 1956) and Cloti Ricciardi (Italian, 20th / 21st centuries). Recognizing the importance of this collaboration, The Polk Museum of Art in Lakeland, Florida, curated and exhibited a collection of these works from the collection of Dorothy Mitchell entitled, “Expanding Expressions” this exhibit was supported by the Polk Museum of Art, Florida Division of Cultural Affairs and the Florida Arts Council and was exhibited throughout the United States at several prominent museums from 1997 until early 2000. Rare-Era is honored to offer hand-selected pieces from this magical time directly from the Berghoff Personal Collection, these choice examples of the editions have never been offered publicly!

ABOUT THE BERGHOFF-COWDEN EDITIONS COLLECTION The Berghoff Art Gallery first opened in the 1980’s as Soho South Gallery in Safety Harbor, Florida. In 1988, Lois Berghoff and Dorothy Cowden evolved the Gallery into the Berghoff-Cowden Editions, a collaborative, screenprint workshop first located in a converted warehouse by the University of Tampa, Florida and ultimately settling in New Port Richey, Florida. The workshop specialized in publishing unique and small editions of hand-pulled screen-prints and monoprints. The environment created within this experimental workshop inspired artists to innovate conventional screen printing techniques in a creative manner never seen before or since. Their editions included hand-painting, collage, flocking, cutting and stitching, paper manipulation such as folding, layering and cutting as well as the incorporation of exotic fabrics and layered Japanese papers. The eclectic creative-processes of the workshop attracted a diverse, global group of renowned artists working in several movements including abstraction, expressionism, realism, sculpture and pattern and decoration. A partial roster of artists who create exceptional works in this space includes: Miriam “Mimi” Schapiro (Canadian, American, b. 1923 – d. 2015), Brad Davis (American, b. 1942), Frank Faulkner (American, 1946), Sam Gilliam (American, b. 1933), Roberto Juarez (American, b. 1952), George Sugarman (American, b. 1912 – d. 1999) and Robert Rahway Zakanitch (American, b. 1935). The workshop also invited Italian artists Marilu Eustachio (Italian, b. 1934), Oliviero Rainaldi (Italian, b. 1956) and Cloti Ricciardi (Italian, 20th / 21st centuries). Recognizing the importance of this collaboration, The Polk Museum of Art in Lakeland, Florida, curated and exhibited a collection of these works from the collection of Dorothy Mitchell entitled, “Expanding Expressions” this exhibit was supported by the Polk Museum of Art, Florida Division of Cultural Affairs and the Florida Arts Council and was exhibited throughout the United States at several prominent museums from 1997 until early 2000. Rare-Era is honored to offer hand-selected pieces from this magical time directly from the Berghoff Personal Collection, these choice examples of the editions have never been offered publicly!

BIOGRAPHY: FRANK FAULKNER (American, b. 1946) Born in Sumter, South Carolina in 1946, Frank Faulkner received his B.F.A. from the University of North Carolina in 1968, Phi Beta Kappa, and his M.F.A. from the same institution in 1972. Faulkner's work quickly won him numerous grants and awards, including an individual artist grant from the National Endowment for the Arts in 1974. He was selected for the Whitney Biennial in 1975, which prompted him to settle in New York. There, he came to the attention of Dorothy Miller, Curator Emeritus of the Museum of Modern Art with a legendary eye for new talent. Since then, Faulkner has continued to garner acclaim and awards. He has been featured in dozens of one-person and group exhibitions in America, Japan, Switzerland, and Germany. Faulkner utilizes numerous materials and techniques including metal, wood and fabric as well as canvas and paper, creating patterns and designs he refers to as the "the gymnastics of seeing." He works and reworks the surfaces of his images, often laying down one thin layer of slightly reflective gold, silver or bronze paint upon another until the final work seems to glow with inner light. This overlay of gold is seen in the monoprints he completed for the Berghoff-Cowden Editions. Faulkner's current work, a series of paintings on paper, continues and deepens this exploration of the relationship between wrought surface and changing light. Another striking aspect of the work is the influence of the decorative arts. To him, the applied arts are indistinguishable from the fine art. He knows and loves Samurai armor, Classical architectural details, chinoiserie, Persian rugs—the whole gamut of the applied arts—and they, of course, inform his creations. Indeed, he is so interested in interiors that he has, while continuing to paint, spent much of the last decade restoring old houses and advising clients how to decorate their homes. (Many of the results have been featured in periodicals such as Architectural Digest and House & Garden.) Faulkner's work is in several public and private collections including the Smith College Museum, Northampton, Massachusetts; the National Museum of American Art, Smithsonian American Art Museum and the Hirshhorn in Washington, D.C.; Polk Museum of Art and Leepa-Rattner Museum of art, Florida; Albright-Knox Art Gallery, New York; Delaware Art Museum, Wilmington, Delaware; Springfield Art Museum, Missouri; North Carolina Museum of Art, Ackland Memorial Art Center, Chapel Hill, North Carolina State University Raleigh in North Carolina; Pennsylvania State University Museum of Art, University Park, Pennsylvania; Sammlung Ludwig, Neue Galerie, Aachen, Germany and by renowned collectors such as Nelson Rockefeller, Baron Leon Lambert, Phillip Hanes and Abba Eban.

73 - KEVIN MCPHERRIN PAINTING TOUCANS & TROPICS KEVIN MCPHERRIN PAINTING TOUCANS & TROPICS: 20th c., Kevin McPherrin. Acrylic on canvas painting depicting a tropical scene of toucans amongst tropical foliage. Signed "SUDAR SA. KEVIN MCPHERRIN" on the face of the canvas, canvas 32"x48", framed: 44"h x 56"w x 1.5"d. BIOGRAPHY: Kevin McPherrin’s art was infused by a two year Asian adventure in the early 1970’s. Sailing his own boat from port to port, he studied watercolor in Singapore, batik in Java and traditional painting in Bail. Between ports, the pristine beauty of primitive areas like Sumatra, Borneo and Riau Islands inspired the jungle themes that still dominate his work. In Australia, Kevin built up a body of work, including mosaics, watercolors, and serigraphs. For the next ten years, Kevin studied between Australia, England and Bali, running a series of businesses while pursuing his art. Returning to America in 1986, Kevin devoted himself to art full time, creating his own work and promoting the work of a number of talented international artists. He exhibited in both group and one man shows both in the United States and overseas. Kevin’s technique is controlled by watercolor. The composition is rendered and shaded in ink then; color is added in watered acrylics. rEFS. http://posterperfection.com/item.php?id=2761, http://www.kevinmcpherrin.com/.
