From Sylvia Plath Bio

depressive Plath committed suicide in 1963, garnering accolades after her death for the novel The Bell Jar, and the poetry collections The Colossus and Ariel. In 1982, Plath became the first person to win a posthumous Pulitzer Prize.

Sylvia’s poems are troubled and the facts of her life are tragic. She is the symbol of the suffering artist who seems to struggle more with life, perhaps, than most. She, Van Gogh and Hemmingway make me wonder if great art is worth it or if these artists just seem to share the struggle more. Maybe it’s legend itself that does this. We seem to prefer the artist who seems caged and dragged through the streets of life. The legend sure helps us enjoy the art!

Women Jazz Musicians Instrumentalists and Vocalists

Women Jazz musicians have made great contributions in the genre but have not received the recognition deserved. In fact, it has been very hard for ladies to break into jazz as instrumentalists. This page recognizes the pioneers of women jazz musicians who made it possible for young ladies to succeed in Jazz.

THE GIRLS IN THE BAND

In Good Time, The Piano Jazz of Marian McPartland

Our association with The Girls in the Band and the late Marian McPartland makes these pages special to us. These are video “searches” for our list of women Jazz musicians which we acquired from Wiki. Each of these pages searches You Tube for the musician and presents a gallery of videos for that musician. We understand the struggle for women in music and this effort is to recognize the ladies who have made a contribution of excellence in Jazz.

 

 

 

 

 

Famous Modern Artist Artwork Life and Bio

Famous Modern Artists, modern art as we know it begins with Manet and the Impressionist movement. It was Manet who first challenged the driving concepts in art, and who first challenged the viewer, his sensibilities, lifestyle and very interpretation of what art is. What art is, is the question of modern art. Realism and representation are outweighed by interpretation and esoteric meaning. Artist moon as a group, and that is why we think of art in movements. The major Renaissance movement was precipitated by science and culture and each movement thereafter has been similarly affected by technology and cultural movement.
Impressionism was preceded by Turner in many ways but artists like our famous modern artists Monet, Pizarro, and Cézanne redefined landscape art. In many ways, Cézanne represents the advent of true modernism because he broke the landscape into abstraction. Also, Picasso can be called the father of modern art, because he is the true father of abstract art. Cubism became the first real challenge of our modern artistic era. Like the Renaissance and the Impressionist movements, the modern movement, as we know it, began with drastic changes in our society. Cubism coincides with the Industrial Revolution of the early 20th century. Abstract expressionism and modern art from famous modern artists of contemporary art represents the result of the Industrial Revolution.

Janet Kuypers’ “Finding Peace” 8/5/17 poetry feature @ Austin’s the Baha’i Center

    Below are video links and poem text links from the August 5th 2017 (8/5/17, or 201700805) poetry performance “Finding Peace” (accompanied by “Wayward Waltz of the Skewed Mind” music from the HA!Man of South Africa) of Janet Kuypers’ Austin poetry feature through ” Expressions! Presents “Peace Poetry, Please”” at Austin’s the Bahá’í Center.

    In this show, Janet Kuypers’ decided to tackle different people think of the word peace, as highlighted in her first (and very new) poem “Protecting Peace can Put you in Prison”), about how even Nobel peace laureates and be imprisoned for peaceful intentions and killed. She then switched gears by sharing poems about the deaths of each of her parents, and how some may need to look for peace to “Really Physically Heal” from illness, or how people look for peace by “Keeping the Peace and Coming to Peace”. For her final poem, she had to once again share the vegetarian-themed poem she used as the final poem in the previous year’s peace-themed show there, “On a High Horse Like This”, read while she remained in the lotus position to relax at the end of her show.

    Before the show started she also released copies to people there of a Scars Publications cc&d bonus release chapbook of the writings she was performing in her show (in the order they were performed). All of the pieces from this evening’s reading were also released electronically in an online “Finding Peace” chapbook, which you can download as a PDF file for free any time.
