‘TARSILA DO AMARAL: INVENTING MODERN ART IN BRAZIL’ at the Museum of Modern Art (through June 3). The subtitle is no overstatement: In the early 1920s, first in Paris and then back home in São Paulo, Brazil, this painter really did lay the groundwork for the coming of modernism in Latin America’s most populous nation. Tired of the European pretenders in Brazil’s art academies, Tarsila (who was always called by her first name) began to intermingle Western, African and..
The vague menace of Vladimir Putin has haunted American politics for nearly two years. But in eastern Europe, Russia’s authoritarian president has wielded his influence for far longer and with a very tangible impact. The former Soviet state of Ukraine, in particular, has felt the force of Putin’s power.
In March 2014, Russia annexed the Crimean peninsula after a revolution in Ukraine toppled its Kremlin-backed president, Viktor Yanukovych. (The territory is now claimed by both Ukraine and Russia.) Russian troops invaded parts of southern Ukraine after the annexation, and Kremlin-backed hackers have launched cyberwar campaigns to disrupt Ukraine’s government and public utilities.
Naturally, Russia’s invasion, the ongoing conflict and the man responsible for both have incited responses from politicians and observers around the world. But perhaps one of the most potent reactions is a set of large-scale works by Ukrainian artists and activists Daria Marchenko and Daniel Green.

History tells us that the trumpet is a call to action. Legendary player Herb Alpert is making beautiful music to draw attention to his other creative outlet: fine art.
Herb Alpert: A Visual Melody opens Feb. 17 at Heather James Fine Art in Palm Desert. The show consists of Alpert’s artworks — from mixed-media abstractions to large and small bronze sculptures — which, like his music, leave an indelible imprint on the heart and mind.
This side of Alpert’s artistic palette might not have emerged in quite the way it did had he not picked up the trumpet when he was 8.
“When I finally did make a sound on the trumpet, it was talking for me,” he says. “I was an introvert. I was pretty mute as a kid. The horn was saying things for me that I couldn’t get out of my mouth. It was transferred into the horn in the best possible way.”
Alpert would go on to form Herb Alpert & the Tijuana Brass in 1962, launch five No. 1 hits and nab nine Grammy Awards, the latest from his 2014 album “Steppin’ Out.” He..

/Published Feb 2, 2018 Karis Lee was one of only about 10 students in her grade when she attended private school. After sixth grade, she transferred to a Montgomery County public school, with hundreds of students in her class.
That transition, the now-16-year-old recalled, was a challenging time for her. What helped, she said, was when students at her new school recognized her talent for art.
That talent propelled her to take first-place honors at the annual Johns Hopkins University art show for her piece titled Renewal. The acrylic painting depicts a girl with peacock feathers; the feathers represent pride. In the painting, the girl is trying to remove feathers from her hair, but they keep growing back. The pride the girl has is symbolic of the pride Lee said she felt when people recognized her artistic talent.
