We are thrilled to announce the exhibition Fierce Generosity 2.0, and the launch of the Carolyn Glasoe Bailey Foundation Minnesota Art Prize.

Fierce Generosity 2.0
September 14, 2019 – October 19, 2019
Opening Reception Saturday September 14, 6-8pm
Artist talk at 6:30pm
Burnet Fine Art & Advisory, Wayzata, Minnesota

Burnet Fine Art & Advisory’s newest exhibition entitled Fierce Generosity 2.0 was curated and organized by the Carolyn Glasoe Bailey Foundation, a non-profit foundation located in Ojai, California. The exhibition showcases a selection of work by Rob Fischer, Cole M James, Yassi Mazandi, Ruth Pastine, David Rathman and Aaron Spangler. A percentage of sales from the exhibition will support the newly created Carolyn Glasoe Bailey Foundation Minnesota Art Prize. The Minnesota Art Prize consists of a cash grant and residency at the Ojai Institute in Ojai, California. David Rathman is the recipient of the inaugural prize. Fierce Generosity 2.0 follows the 2016 exhibition Fierce Generosity that helped launch the Carolyn Glasoe Bailey Foundation.

Fierce Generosity 2.0 was conceived as a meeting point of artists that are part of the Carolyn Glasoe Bailey Foundation’s efforts, with three artists from Minnesota and three from California. The intention is to present a spectrum of artistic exploration between representation and pure abstraction, while illustrating the breadth and depth of the foundation’s support of living artists.

Opening Reception: Thursday, August 1, 2019, 5:00 – 7:00 pm 

Additional events to be announced

Carolyn Glasoe Bailey Foundation is pleased to announce our second exhibition partnership with the Hotel Indigo Santa Barbara. XANADU opens to the public Thursday, August 1, 2019, and features artworks from the Carolyn Glasoe Bailey Foundation Study Collection, artworks on loan from local collections, augmented with works available for sale through a partnership with JC Connelly, Inc. to benefit the Carolyn Glasoe Bailey Foundation. The exhibition is curated by Frederick Janka, Executive Director, and John Connelly, principal of JC Connelly, Inc. and will be on view through February 1, 2020. 

The exhibition is a hybrid model of public-private partnership between the Hotel Indigo Santa Barbara and the Carolyn Glasoe Bailey Foundation, with the support of JC Connelly, Inc. The exhibition is inspired, in part, by the name of the summer palace of Kubla Khan, the Mongol ruler and Emperor of China from 1260 – 1294.  Xanadu, an alternative to Shangdu, gained popularity after the publication of the poem Kubla Khan by Samuel Taylor Coleridge in 1816. Earlier literary visions of Shangdu were inspired by Marco Polo’s visit to the area in 1275 where he described encountering a wondrous park and palace, walled for miles around, with fountains, rivers, brooks, beautiful meadows and wild animals. 

Describing his own vision of the summer capital, written in 1797 and published in 1816, Coleridge wrote:

In Xanadu did Kubla Khan

A stately pleasure-dome decree :

Where Alph, the sacred river, ran

Through caverns measureless to man

Down to a sunless sea.

 

So twice five miles of fertile ground

With walls and towers were girdled round:

And there were gardens bright with sinuous rills,

Where blossomed many an incense-bearing tree;

And here were forests ancient as the hills,

Enfolding sunny spots of greenery.

Since Coleridge’s poem was published the name Xanadu gained recognition and has been appropriated and used in popular culture, film, literature and music to symbolize or suggest an idyllic Eden-like setting. However, beneath the often colorful references to paradise and the riches and pleasures it offers,  Xanadu also suggests the dark and dangerous side of the natural world, and the possible vagaries of man’s intrusion into it. 

Among other cultural references and points of inspiration, Xanadu is the name (or part of the name) for: a mansion in the fictional biographical film Citizen Kane (1941); a 1980 film starring Olivia Newton-John and Gene Kelly (and a 2007 Broadway musical based on it); a bright feature on the surface of Saturn’s moon Titan; a series of experimental homes built in the early 1980’s to showcase computers and automation; the nickname (with “2.0”) for Bill Gates’ private estate and the alternative name for American Dreams Meadowlands, a proposed mall in New Jersey. 

Daniel Alvarado, Hotel Indigo Santa Barbara’s General Manager, says, “Our hotel is excited to be partnering with the Carolyn Glasoe Bailey Foundation to share unexpected art encounters with both locals and guests in the unique space of our hotel and to create a connection to our community that extends beyond our front door.”
