Haitian Art lovers near the East Coast!

Jonathan Demme does it again, with Jose Zelaya

The Event will be held at Material Culture in the Germantown section of
Philadelphia.

As it happens, the first Macondo shop opened on Germantown Ave.
nearby, in 1974, so for me it will be special.
You can click on any of the buttons above to see the wonderful catalog.

It is an amazing collection and as always,
anything Jonathan does will benefit Haiti and
The magic of the art will enchant those of us who
are lucky enough to be there. I would not miss this one!

and if you absolutely can't make it:

You can view the catalog and bid online

The Haitians of course are dealing with the new normal as they deal with everything,
with courage, faith, ingenuity and humor. in the face of grevious injury to them.
They still need our help. The big money that was promised has not been delivered.
What they need is small money now.
Here are a few small organizations
that are doing vital work everyday.
They need money to continue.

Our sympathies to his wife and children.


********

Selden Rodman left us last Saturday, November 2, 2002 after a long and richly productive life,
characterized by individuality and non-conformity. He was 93 years old.
If there was a Haitian Art Hall of Fame, he would have to be a charter member.

After his first visit to Haiti in 1938, he wrote a play on the life of Toussaint L'Ouverture
which opened in Port-au-Prince in 1942.

He served in the OSS during WWII and then returned to Haiti
where he was co-director of the Centre d'Art and
was among those who supervised the landmark mural project at Trinity Cathedral.

Selden wrote more than 40 books, poetry, prose and
of course,his authoritive works on Haitian and Brazilian art.
His classic, "Haiti, the Black Republic" published in 1954,
is still an insightful guide to the Haitian culture and spirit
even though much of the tourist information is outdated after half a century.

Besides his books, he left us a wonderful collection of folkart, Haitian, Mexican, Cuban and more,
at Ramapo College in Northern New Jersey.

Our sympathies to his wife of 40 years, Carole, and his children, Bebe, Carla and Van.
We will miss him too.

ZEPHIRIN 2002

A series of wonderfully intense paintings
that Zephirin completed in Pittsburgh on the first day of 2002.
These paintings are so rich and complicated in technique

They are, without a doubt,
the best work that Zephirin has done in more than 2 years.

December 2, 2000 Gwen Grant Mellon will be buried today
on a hillside overlooking the Albert Schweitzer Hospital in Deschapelles, Haiti,
the hospital that she and her late husband, Dr. Larry Mellon, founded in 1954.
Mrs. Mellon passed away this past Wednesday in Miami
due to complications during hip surgery.
She visited her family in Pittsburgh often over the years and
I felt priveleged to know her.
She was a great friend to Haiti and to Haitian art as well,;
she encouraged and supported Saincilus Ismael
and the many students of his who painted in and around Deschapelles .

Godspeed to Mrs. Mellon.

***********************************

Two of the brightest stars in the Haitian art firmament flickered out in February, 2000
as
Saincilus Ismael and Pierre -Joseph Valcin
"returned to Guinee" as they say in Haiti when someone passes on.
Ismael, the master of Deschappelles, inspired an entire school of artists
in the Artibonite with his depictions of Haitian life rendered in byzantine detail.
P-J Valcin, the " prince of the naives" was one of the precious
few self-taught artists still painting.
