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.

Christian Garnet – Color Interplay

Christian Garnett is a visual artist. Included on his bio of a solo shows is a show at Carolyn’s NYC Gallery – Dee Glasoe n 2002. Christian’s well-chosen contrasting colors and a carefully controlled interplay of different painting methods that turn these paintings into entertaining patchwork puzzles. It’s nearly impossible to figure out how they have been made: which areas of solid color or blurred.

Alejandro Diaz – Neon Bring Art To Life

Diaz is well-known for his conceptual, recurrent use of everyday materials, his humor infused politics, and his ongoing involvement with art as a form of entertainment, activism, public intervention, and free enterprise. He began making and selling his cardboard signs, “Mexican Wallpaper”, on the streets of Manhattan in the late 90s. More recently, he has translated them into a compelling series of colorful neon signs. Some of Diaz’ recent projects include a commission to create large-scale outdoor sculptures for the Public Art Fund (2005), New York’s premier presenter of public art, a series called MexiCans, now part of the permanent public art collection of the City of San Antonio, on display at the San Antonio International Airport, and a public art commission for the Havana Biennial (2003).One of his amazing neon signs “Another Bright Idea” is included in the Fierce Generosity exhibit.

Charlotta’s Swedish style and attention to detail in her collected work made her a standout favorite of both Glasoe sisters. We are so fortunate that Ms. Westergren has donated a painting to the July 21st – August 21st exhibition at Porch Gallery – Ojai, honoring Carolyn’s life and contribution to the art world.
