I’ve posted many photos in the past of the main streets and downtown areas of many of our Michigan towns…and made one of Leslie.

But sometimes when you look at those old photos from over 100 years ago, you squint your eyes trying to read what certain signs are saying. So I tried to help a bit with the gallery below. I posted eleven photos of downtown and then zoomed in on some of the store signs so you can see what those establishments were like.

One of the shops happens to be what is probably Leslie’s most historic and enduring business: Mitchell’s.

Mitchell’s opened in 1886, but not in the current familiar location. An immigrant from Scotland, George Mitchell worked in coal mining in Jackson, then opened his first store in Jackson. He moved it to Leslie in 1886 just east down the block on Bellevue Street. The old store functioned well as a grocery/general store and eventually moved to the busier downtown in 1905. It’s been there ever since – still open for business.

The grocery store soon disappeared, followed by a paint and wallpaper store, finally moving to its current clothing in 1981.

Now take a look at the gallery below and see if you might have heard of any of these former Leslie ventures!

Jacqueline Rabun’s exhibition on modernist jewelry design, part of New York Jewelery Week, is currently on view at the Mahnaz Collection gallery in New York, along with ‘Meditations on Modernism: Thirty Years of Jewelry Design by Jacqueline Rabun ( 1990-2022)’ given the impact of the cultural movement.

“It is important for me to exhibit my work in America after living in London for the past 32 years,” says Rabun. “I wanted to take him home. I also think it’s important to inspire and educate the next generation of jewelry designers through this exhibit.

The retrospective of Rabun’s career thus far is accompanied by Nordic modernist jewelry works, which encompass a brutalist simplicity often reflected in Rabun’s own pieces, displayed in both his past and current work for Georg Jensen and in its new minimalist designs with hand-carved gemstones.

“The exhibition is a journey that begins with my earliest work, ‘Raw Elegance’, a series of hand-carved sterling silver pieces and the journey to a more refined expression in my current designs,” adds Rabun. “We will also be showing works from my long collaboration with Georg Jensen and my limited edition pieces for Carpenters Workshop Gallery. My interpretation goes through a more minimalist approach to design, extracting what isn’t necessary and leaving what’s important to the wearer.

Nearly 120 pieces of jewelry will be exhibited in an intersection of cultural references, demonstrating a shared attachment to sensual and sculptural forms. “In some ways, Jacqueline follows a line of revolutionary female Nordic modernist jewelers who took geometric circles and encased them in eye shapes, as Nanna Ditzel did, or softened sharp angles using strong curved lines of gold, as in the case of Torun,’ says Mahnaz Ispahani Bartos of the Mahnaz Collection gallery. “While Jacqueline’s work begins later, her passage through Jensen’s extraordinary cabinet and the history of modernism in the wider Nordic region, ranging from brutalism to minimalism to high naturalism, has clearly left its mark. Her jewelry is multi-sensory – you can see it, touch it, caress it, search for its hidden secrets, take it to heart and above all wear it on your body. These are the hallmarks of his work. There is so much many things here that the current generation of jewelers can learn from.

A residential project by Oza Sabbeth, the Bridgehampton, New York-based architecture studio, creates a new domestic topography on a hilly site near Sagaponack. The studio, led by founders Nilay Oza and Peter Sabbeth, took inspiration from the complexity of the landscape and the local vernacular to compose a series of “shed-like” forms for this new family home – welcome to Living Levels .

Oza Sabbeth’s composition for Living Levels

Living Levels’ selection of volumes feature clean geometries and sloping roofs, referencing the region’s agricultural barns. The wood cladding of the upper forms adds to the vernacular reference. However, they all come together seamlessly around the exterior spaces of the house. Inside, “a staircase weaves its way through these forms, connecting them experimentally from the inside, while allowing them to remain visually distinct when viewed from the outside,” explain the architects of Oza. Sabbath.

Each space within has been designed to frame a specific view and function in harmony with its context. A guest bedroom in the basement overlooks the plot’s grove of mature trees. A generous first floor hosts the entrance, the living room, the kitchen, the dining area and a family room, directing the gaze towards the garden and its swimming pool. Meanwhile, upstairs, the master bedroom offers views towards the farmhouse to the south, balancing privacy and connection with its surroundings. This is followed by more bedroom areas on the highest level.

Clean surfaces, a restrained material palette throughout (including light wood and white painted plaster), along with the sparsely furnished decor, allow for an uncluttered approach to the interiors, matching the project’s overall take on minimalist architecture .

Oza Sabbeth is a skilled hand when it comes to residential architecture. The studio often works on a masterful blend of styles and typologies from its region, and contemporary materials, techniques and forms. Along the same lines, this Sagaponack house connects to its surroundings while offering a contemporary proposal for a country home.

Commissioned by Laure Prouvost Light Hall at the National Museum of Oslo https://artdeko-bg.com/commissioned-by-laure-prouvost-light-hall-at-the-national-museum-of-oslo/ Fri, 11 Nov 2022 06:00:40 +0000 https://artdeko-bg.com/commissioned-by-laure-prouvost-light-hall-at-the-national-museum-of-oslo/ Perched atop the new national museum in norway is the Light Hall, an iridescent marble box enclosing an open, cavernous space.

Perched atop the new national museum in norway is the Light Hall, an iridescent marble box enclosing an open, cavernous space. Used for various group and thematic exhibitions, it will also host The Fredriksen Family Commissions, a series of five biennial projects in which international artists are invited to create a work or an installation – Laure Prouvost being the first.

The whole place was a construction site when the Brussels-based French artist made her first visit there. “There were pipes coming out of everywhere and I was like, could we just let nature take over, stop building and let the birds in?” she said, recalling a core of an idea that developed over subsequent visits. Flying north of Belgium, looking at the clouds, thinking about migration and a bird’s-eye view of the earth, the artist began to conceive of the Light Hall as an artificial cloud levitating above Oslo, and set out to create an ethereal and experiential atmosphere. inner world.

Climbing a staircase to the top of the museum, a narrow passage with a rising and falling floor acts as a threshold into Prouvost’s new realm. A huge video wall divides the Light Hall in two, this first side is what the artist calls the valley – “the valley of humans, production, consumption and consumerism, but also of belonging to nature “. Meandering pipes intertwine architecture and artifice, seeming to leak oil onto the terrazzo floor into pools trapping the detritus of consumerism and nature. However, in this dark environment, there are hints of how we humans might float away from earthly despair and into the clouds.

An intricate tapestry hangs, decorated with facts about migratory birds such as TERNS FLY 5700KM IN 7 DAYS WITHOUT ANY BREAK and MOST BIRDS TRAVEL ALONE. Prouvost says it was woven by his “grandmother” (a recurring character in his works) and cousins ​​in Flanders, and that even though it is now hanging, “it really must be airlifted or a big bird to climb up and fly away from the museum.’ Another tapestry forms an enclosed, dark and cozy space in which the reassuring voice-over of the artist invites us to “stay forever if you want, lie down, do not hesitate to nest yourself”.

The looping film projected on the dividing wall contains a recurring and haunting song that Prouvost wrote with the Ghent musician Tsar B, performed by Singing Molenbeek, a children’s choir with which the artist became involved, which, according to she, “come from a disadvantaged district of Belgium and all come from different migratory backgrounds”. Grand Ma – omnipresent in the installation – also appears in the film, flying in the sky naked, smiling and weightless.

WallpaperMural once again dominates the market with its self-adhesive paper products. Already the first to market in the UK with peel and stick wallpaper, the technology has been further improved to make the product safer for rental properties.

A new class of adhesives has been developed in partnership with the manufacturer, ensuring that the wall is not damaged when removing the paper. The new adhesive used does not lose or strengthen adhesion, leaving the paper as sticky as when mounted and no longer sticking to the wall surface over time.

The new adhesives arrive at the same time as the new Scandi wallpaper collection, also launched this quarter. Featuring brand new designs as well as some great favourites, this collection has already been a resounding success and fills a real gap in the wallpaper market.

The adhesive remains water-based and solvent-free, and using the same high-quality, responsibly sourced and FSC-approved paper, the product’s green credentials are unmatched. This product is perfect for the ever-growing self-adhesive wallpaper and wallcovering market, and is sure to be in high demand. In addition to these qualities, the adhesive can also be applied to light textures, which means wall preparation does not need to be as rigorous.

With this added removability and ease of use, now shipping direct to consumers, the extensive WallpaperMural catalog is sure to be popular, as already excellent reviews suggest. There are several new design collections, including the Chinoiserie wallpaper which features repeating pattern rolls as well as custom murals, perfect for interior designers, homeowners and renters!

Obituary of Pierre Soulages (1919-2022): pioneer of abstraction https://artdeko-bg.com/obituary-of-pierre-soulages-1919-2022-pioneer-of-abstraction/ Thu, 27 Oct 2022 10:00:00 +0000 https://artdeko-bg.com/obituary-of-pierre-soulages-1919-2022-pioneer-of-abstraction/ Wallpaper* Get our daily roundup of inspiration, escape and design stories from around the world straight to your inbox Thank you for subscribing to .

Pioneering French painter, printmaker and sculptor Pierre Soulages died in Paris at the age of 102. He was a key proponent of Art Informel and Abstract Expressionism and, above all, a master of the color black.

Known as “the painter of black and light”, Soulages was born in Rodez, a small town in the south of France, in 1919. His enthusiasm for painting dates back to his childhood. during which he was inspired by prehistoric standing stones found near his hometown and painted black winter trees against a dark background, the latter forming the premise of his painting practice for decades to come.

After a short stay in Paris in 1938, the artist spent the occupation working as a winegrower in central France. He settled permanently in the French capital in 1946, settled in a small studio and devoted himself to painting. His early work was dynamic and abstract, designed by applying dark colors in broad, bar-like brushstrokes on pristine white canvases. Although his paintings are closely related to abstract expressionism, Soulages always rejected the limits of lyrical abstraction: “Painting is not the equivalent of a sensation, an emotion or a feeling; it is the organization of the colored forms, on which is made and undone a meaning that one imposes on it”, he will say later.

The post-war years are important in the career of Soulages. After exhibiting his work at the Salon des Surindépendants in 1947, he was shown at the Grosse Ausstellung Französische Abstrakte Malerei, a major traveling exhibition of abstract art held in Stuttgart, and caught the attention of James Johnson Sweeney, the future director of the Museum. Guggenheim. At New York. This meeting leads shortly after to his first personal exhibition at the Galerie Lydia Conti. At the time, the work of Soulages was often perceived as the French counterpart of the school of New York artists, in particular the work of Franz Kline. During the 1960s, Soulages gained visibility and fame across Europe and America, and was celebrated in a number of major retrospectives.

In 1979, Soulages began a work entitled Outrenoir (“beyond black”) that would define his career. In this monochrome series, he applied black acrylic in thick layers on the canvas, before engraving stripes and streaks on it. This technique created a surface in which smooth, glassy blocks of black met the roughness of raw canvas – his paintings were landscapes of light, form, reflection and perception. Soulages’ experimental approach used tools of his own production as well as domestic utensils; he was driven by the desire to think outside the box, constantly looking for innovation.

In 2019, on the occasion of the artist’s 100th birthday, the Louvre Museum, the Pompidou Center, the Fabre Museum in Montpellier and the headquarters of the Perrotin Gallery in Shanghai organized exhibitions to honor his work. The gallery has also published a monograph on the artist’s work Outrenoir series.

As Emmanuel Perrotin, who began collaborating with the artist in 2017, said in a press release: “I will always remember our first meeting in 2012 in the house in Sète, with Colette: I met a couple there extraordinarily dynamic. They immediately fascinated me with their memory and their energy. Perrotin describes Soulages as “a great artist of course, but also a great soul, generous and sympathetic, a great figure of both the 20th and 21st centuries and a great friend, who will remain in my heart and in that of the teams of the gallery. My thoughts are with Colette and their team in Sète. He will be greatly missed by all of us.

Soulages received the Grand Prix National de Peinture in 1986. The following year, he received an ambitious commission from the French state to design 104 stained glass windows for the abbey church of Sainte-Foy, located near his hometown of Rodez, a project it would take eight years.

Known for his sensational ability to subtly represent the invisible, Pierre Soulages has gained worldwide recognition as a key figure in Abstract Expressionism and Art Informel. By transforming black into an incandescent color, the artist highlights the origins of humanity in its darkness and its light.

Where to Mount a TV in a Difficult Space https://artdeko-bg.com/where-to-mount-a-tv-in-a-difficult-space/ Mon, 24 Oct 2022 18:21:12 +0000 https://artdeko-bg.com/where-to-mount-a-tv-in-a-difficult-space/ Comment this story Comment Unless you live in brand new construction – where a pre-determined spot has been perfectly wired and designed to house a TV – it can be surprisingly frustrating to figure out where to put one.

Comment

Unless you live in brand new construction – where a pre-determined spot has been perfectly wired and designed to house a TV – it can be surprisingly frustrating to figure out where to put one. Maybe the room you want your TV in is oddly shaped, or has too many windows or too few outlets. Either way, we’ve sought advice from designers, architects and home-stagers to solve tricky TV placement.

A relatively simple solution is to mount your TV on a full-motion stand, which allows you to tilt the screen in any direction, making just about any spot usable. Basic models start around $20, but can run into the hundreds depending on the size and weight of your TV.

Installing the bracket is not very complicated – either find the stud and screw the device directly to it, or hang it with drywall anchors. Still, there’s no shame in knowing your limits: “If all you’ve done is hang a picture, you might need to hire a Taskrabbit or ask a friend to come help you out,” says Jeanne Goldberg, owner of Inhabit Staging in Maryland. .

Designer Susan Sutter stresses the importance of setting the stand low enough so you don’t have to strain your neck to watch TV. The only other requirement is to have an outlet (plus coax if using cable) nearby.

Install an outlet if your wall does not have one

Speaking of outlets, sometimes the only way to create a logical location for a TV is to hire an electrician to add a new outlet. If you’ve “cut the cord” and are streaming TV, that’s all you’ll need. If you’re still using traditional cable, you’ll also want to add a coax plug to the setup.

What’s on your walls – paint, paneling, wallpaper – will affect the complexity (and cost) of the job. Generally, electrical work can be done in a few hours for a few hundred dollars. But this does not include any additional patching and repair work that your wall may require.

Calculate the size of a TV you should buy

Once you have determined where to place the TV, it is also important to determine the best screen size for the space. Choosing the wrong size TV will make the room “unbalanced and uncomfortable to watch,” says Erika Jayne Chaudhuri, designer and general contractor at Erika Jayne Design.

To calculate the ideal size, Chaudhuri recommends halving the distance in inches between the TV and where you plan to sit while watching it (remembering that TVs are measured diagonally). For example, if your favorite spot on the couch is 10 feet (120 inches) from the TV, go for a 60-inch screen.

Disguise your TV as a work of art

Camouflage is another useful tactic. Especially in a room with no obvious focal point, a TV masquerading as art won’t look so out of place. If you’re looking for a new TV, choose a model with an “art mode” setting – also known as “gallery” or “ambient” mode. Most new TVs come with such an option, which displays photos or paintings on the screen when you’re not watching anything else. Some, like Samsung’s The Frame TV, let you upload your own photos. Additionally, The Frame TV comes with a real art-style frame around the screen.

If you have a regular flat screen, there are still ways to disguise it. Try hanging it as part of an art or photo gallery wall. By surrounding it with other (more attractive) things to watch, the TV won’t be so visible.

Let us know your home maintenance questions.

Hide your TV in a cabinet

Depending on the parameters of your space, a cabinet can create a focal point where there was none, hide the TV when not in use, or divide a room for different uses.

In a bedroom, a lift-up cabinet at the foot of the bed will create space that didn’t previously exist for the television, plus it allows you to lower it out of sight when you’re not watching.

In large rooms, a wide cabinet can be used both to hide the TV and to divide the space. Thomas Morbitzer and Goil Amornvivat, partners at AMMOR Architecture in New York, used this method in a Jackson Hole home, installing a custom unit that spans almost the entire width of the room. It houses the television on the side facing the living room and the crockery on the side closest to the dining room.

“You have the benefit of not having an obvious TV on the wall or on a stand, you have this really nice cabinet, and then you have a lot of other storage,” says Morbitzer. “The cabinet helps divide the room so that the TV side feels more intimate.”

Between the TV, additional devices – such as gaming systems – and speakers, you could end up with a lot of cables. Even if you’ve found an acceptable spot for the TV, those loose wires can turn into a messy distraction.

Wireless devices, like Sonos speakers, that connect to your TV via WiFi or Bluetooth will help reduce clutter. There are also plenty of easy — and cheap — solutions! – Fixes on the market, such as ties and velcro that keep cables more contained, and cable tray style covers that completely conceal them.

It’s on My Nintendo now

A new Nintendo Halloween wallpaper has just launched through the My Nintendo program, and it’s incredibly cute, especially when it comes to takes on certain characters.

Much like a Disney promo with Mickey impersonating Count Dracula, Mario takes on a pumpkin-vampire form, with Peach as the witch, Luigi as the werewolf, Yoshi as the dragon, and Toad as the ghost. A few enemies are even coming too, and I’m a big fan of the Blooper mummy: give me that toy. The wallpaper is zero point platinum and fully digital.

Beyond that, Nintendo also has a “creepy pumpkin carving stencil” for Splaton 3, and reminds people that they currently have a host of physical rewards on My Nintendo. As of this writing, the most recent restocks include the Metroid Dread set of posters, as well as a Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope keychains.

As a reminder, if you want physical rewards, you can find our complete guide to platinum points here, which has been updated with weekly mission details: bookmark it when you need fast points for a reward. A Fistful of Points is incredibly easy to get, as it only takes 15 minutes with Super Mario Run, or a quick connection to the 3DS or Wii U 3Shop. Also remember that all shipments are consolidated, so you can pay one flat rate for multiple items instead of paying it each time. Just be aware that items are frequently out of stock on My Nintendo and some are never restocked.
