From the recent Cultural Council press release:

“The Art of Jason Newsted, Dec. 1Feb. 3”:

Newsted, a resident of Jupiter, has been a serious artist since 2004, with his first gallery show in San Francisco in 2010. He works with words and layers, manipulating canvases and upcycling ordinary materials. Using both hands, he scrawls out names or phrases and then layers paint to cleverly disguise them from the viewer. At times the artist twists and turns the canvas repeatedly, painting until he obtains the desired effect.
     Newsted imagines landscapes and otherworldly figures that come to light from an unlimited color palette, evoking a sense of frenetic emotion. The exhibition was co-curated by Nick Korniloff, Executive Vice President, founder and director of Art Miami and founder of the prestigious Palm Beach Modern + Contemporary art fair, and Nichole Hickey, manager of Artist Services at the Cultural Council. Korniloff said,

“Entering year two of our Palm Beach Modern + Contemporary art fair, we look forward to the kickoff of another exciting cultural season in Palm Beach County by supporting and celebrating the Cultural Council’s 40th anniversary. When provided the opportunity to work with Rena Blades and her team to co-curate an exhibition with Nichole Hickey of the Council, I jumped at the opportunity. There was only one artist in mind -- and that was Palm Beach County resident, six-time Grammy winner, Rock ‘n Roll Hall of Famer and multitalented musical, lyrical and visual artist Jason Newsted. Jason’s immersive show represents all of the mediums of the arts that the Cultural Council has worked so hard to support over the years. The RaWk exhibition will be an event and art show that our community will never forget.”
