50 years ago #ellsworthkelly (age 43) NEW WORK BY ELLSWORTH KELLY, FERUS GALLERY, LOS ANGELES 1966 "The Ferus Gallery was a contemporary art gallery operating from 1957-1966. In 1957 it was located at 736-A North La Cienega Boulevard, Los Angeles, California. In 1958, it was relocated across the street to 723 North La Cienega Boulevard where it remained until its closing in 1966. Under the directorship of Irving Blum from 1958, the gallery exhibited both the West Coast and New York art of the period. It was the first gallery on the West Coast to devote a solo show to Andy Warhol, whom Blum had first met in New York in 1961. Blum also ventured to show other East Coast artists, including Jasper Johns, Roy Lichtenstein, and Frank Stella. Ferus closed in 1967 when Blum sought "a financial leg up" by opening Ferus/Pace with Arne Glimcher, owner of New York's Pace Gallery. That venture lasted less than two years. Blum operated the Irving Blum Gallery until his departure for New York City in 1972 where in partnership with Joseph Helman he opened the BlumHelman Gallery; he returned full-time to Los Angeles in 1998 as a private dealer. From 1965, the offices of the art magazine Artforum were situated above the gallery, before moving to New York City in 1967." Verbiage from Wikipedia.

The Light and Space artists of LA were hugely influenced by the way the light would play with their senses. The ocean, mountains, sky and sunsets were all subject matters for these modern day plein air artists. One of the originals of that time was Peter Alexander who along with John McCracken and Dewain Valentine used resins as their medium. This Rose wedge is a great example of how Peter could capture the essence of Southern California. This piece is particularly mesmerizing in person. #peteralexander #ferusgallery #socalart #resinart @parraschheijnengallery #🙏

Getty special collections find: Flier from the #FerusGallery for #AndyWarhol's first solo pop art show in 1962, the first exhibition of his soup cans. Five of the canvases sold for $100 each, but gallery director Irving Blum bought them back to keep them intact. Ferus existed from 1957-1966.

Ed Ruscha at the Kenny Scharf show BLOX and BAX. I spot Ruscha at every opening, book signing or honor for any of the artists from the Ferus gallery era. He is a damn loyal dude! @KennyScharf #EdRuscha #KennyScharf #HonorFraser #FerusGallery #CoolSchool

"I look at it everyday. It moves me. Makes me feel good....It's got life in it. It's got a lot of depth and movement. It captures the light. It's very hard to do. It's very hard to capture light on a canvas but he does it....[Peter] is very high on the hit list for me."

#Repost @alisonmartino Remembering #AndyWarhol who passed away on this day in 1987. Did you know that the debut of Andy's Campbells Soup cans actually debuted here in Los Angeles? Yep, at a little art gallery on La Cienega called the Ferus Gallery. Dennis Hopper was one of Andy's first customers seen here with artist Billy Al Bengston. Gallery owner, Irving Young Blum can be seen in the background.

[Andy Warhol /Sunset, 1972] Remembering Andy Warhol today and his many contributions to art history, most notable within printmaking. As part of his willingness to blur the boundaries separating originals from copies, Warhol's Sunset series comprised of 632 dazzling and distinct color variations of the same image. By creating one-of-a-kind screenprints illustrating the subtle color variations and permutations that he was able to achieve, he once again pushed the aesthetic and economic boundaries that traditionally defined prints as identical units. 472 of these were used by architects Johnson & Burgee for the Hotel Marquette in Minneapolis, the other 160 were distributed in a portfolio. In 1981 the prints were taken out of the hotel and made available for sale. #arthistory #andywarhol #printmaking #print #icon #genius #democracy #art #artforeveryone #modernart #marilynmonroe #jackie #campbellsoup #screenprint #monoprint #sunset #collect #art #artadvisor #theconsideredcollection #learn #explore #ferusgallery #interiordesign #newyork

"You don't often hear Andy [Warhol] being called an appropriation artist, but he was. Someone asked me about Andy doing an appropriation with the Last Supper paintings, and I remarked that Andy's soup cans are an appropriation, he just wasn't appropriating an old master, he was appropriating a commercial artist. I thought about these ideas when I chose artists to work on. In the end, I chose the artists that I was nuts about."

"Drawing is a way of seeing what you are thinking about....My drawing philosophy would be to keep the process from being philosophical....Most of [my work] comes from intuition, imagination, and things I've discovered during the making process. The work is not meant to be rational, theoretical, philosophical, or morally instructive. It's not social or political issues, and it's not meant as a critique of former art. It's purpose is strictly for pleasure. Its meaning is open to personal interpretation. I don't think you need any instruction about how to appreciate it." Ken Price. Happy Birthday Ken. #kenprice #kennyprice #ferus #ferusgallery #franklinparraschgallery #franklinparrasch #parraschheijnengallery #parraschheijnen #matthewmarks #matthewmarksgallery #breakingbad #walterandjessie #crystalmeth
