How You Can Help Those Affected By The California Fires

55f6f116c46188d2398b4570

Wildfires have swept through California, killing at least 15 people and injuring over 100. With thousands of acres burned and the fires still raging, here’s how you can help those affected by the blazes. We were part of the evacuations ourselves this week as part of the #canyon2fire

Facebook has created exclusive Crisis Response Centers for three of the fires — the Sulphur Fire, the Tubbs Fire and the Atlas Fire.

If you want to volunteer to help, you can let the community of the Crisis Response Center know that you’re looking to participate in volunteer efforts.

The Crisis Response Centers also allow people to start a fundraiser or donate to ongoing fundraisers. They also serve as a resource to view information about the wildfires, including local news reports and updates, as well as photos that other Facebook users in the area are posting of the devastation.

The online centers also allow you to check in, letting your Facebook friends know you’re safe if you’re living in the affected areas, or allow you to make sure that your friends in those areas are safe.

To ensure that you’re contributing to established agencies, you can visit an organization like Charity Navigator or GiveWell, which monitor charities, making it easier to determine where to send your money securely.

The American Red Cross is among established relief organizations that are highly rated by Charity Navigator. The Red Cross is working to provide shelter, food and comfort to those that had to flee their neighborhoods in the affected wildfire areas.

Closing Soon: Tim Bavington “Tone Poems” at Lehman Morgan Gallery (NYC)

Tim Bavington “Tone Poems”
Lehman Morgan Gallery (New York)
Closing October 21, 2017

In 1956, Frank Sinatra conducted an album for Capitol Records called Tone Poems of Color. The record consists of twelve tracks inspired by the poetry of Norman Sickle, each piece written by a notable 20th Century Hollywood composer and designated by a color as its title. In the manner of mid- 1800’s European orchestral music, these “tone poems” attempt to translate the emotive and narrative content latent in non-musical sources directly into sound.

Tim Bavington’s celebrated oeuvre takes this idea of translation head on, considering the correlative, reciprocal, and at times ambiguous relationship between the visual and aural, art and music. The artist’s approach to geometric abstraction is based in a complex system of annotation and interpretation, whereby popular songs’ musical “DNA” (e.g. melody, beat, etc.) find subjective representation in color and form. This, in effect, is Bavington’s conceptual framework for making paintings.

Inspired by Sinatra’s record, the artist’s latest studio work explores the nuances and energy of individual colors. The basis for each painting is a musical composition with a single color in the title: Jimi Hendrix’s Purple Haze, for instance. Whereas much of Bavington’s previous output delivered color at “full volume,” many of the new paintings reflect a lowering of chromatic intensity, as well as a broader tonal range and more limited palette. Morgan Lehman is delighted to present these works in Tim Bavington’s first solo exhibition with the gallery.

Tim Bavington (b. 1966, England) received his BFA from ArtCenter College of Design before moving to Las Vegas, where he completed his MFA at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. Bavington’s work is included in numerous public collections, including The Museum of Modern Art (New York), Fredrick R. Weisman Collection, Crocker Art Museum, Honolulu Art Museum, Albright-Knox Art Gallery, Joslyn Art Museum, Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego, Portland Art Museum, Museum of Fine Arts Houston, Palm Springs Art Museum, Denver Art Museum, Nora Eccles Harrison Museum of Art at Utah State University, as well as the McNay Art Museum in Texas. His largest work to date, Pipe Dream, is a major public sculpture commissioned by the Smith Center for the Performing Arts in Las Vegas and is based on the 1942 Aaron Copeland classic, Fanfare for the Common Man.

Recent Work” will showcase Salavon’s distinctive mastery of self-scripted computer programs, which source and reconfigure cultural data into visual compositions.

Jason Salavon: Recent Work

https://www.artsy.net/show/mark-moore-fine-art-jason-salavon-recent-work

Salavon’s work employs self-scripted computer programs to process and reconfigure data gleaned from an all-encompassing cultural panorama. The resulting works range from transubstantiations of intangible statistics into visual abstractions, to literal depictions of the homogenizing effect of an inundation of images. By not committing to any particular source, Salavon’s work serves to highlight the larger implications of how information is produced and processed rather than critiquing any given subject matter. Although Salavon’s reordering of information is technically entirely objective, the works produced are anything but neutral. Simply through reformatting, Salavon prompts the viewer to consider a multitude of questions. Although the answers may remain beyond our reach, we cannot help but feel that – through the act of questioning alone – we are better equipped to tackle a culture consumed by an excess of unedited information.

Poised between contemporary mass culture and the history of art, and between painterly expressionism and the raw data of digital source material and computer code, Salavon’s work is a significant achievement.”  – Joe Hill

Jason Salavon received his MFA from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago, in Chicago, IL, where he now lives and works. He has exhibited his work extensively throughout the United States and internationally, included shows at Los Angeles County Museum of Art, CA and the Chicago Museum of Contemporary Art, IL. His work is included in numerous prestigious public collections; LACMA, The Whitney Museum of American Art, NY, Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago and The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, TX, to name but a few. This solo exhibition will be Salavon’s first exclusive online presentation on ARTSY.
