Saturdays and Sundays, Noon to 4 for the month of August Artist’s reception: Saturday, August 6 from 5 to 7 PM
The art of James Antonie is unique and intriguing. “My work as an artist involves the investigation and issues of scale in art and science. I am interested in what constitutes and composes the big, the small and the relativity of size. I compare value and belief systems, priorities, greatness and insignificance, by researching the human archetypes and universals.”
James was born in Two Rivers, Wisconsin. In 1964 he was awarded a full tuition scholarship from Scholastic Magazine to the Layton School of Art and Design in Milwaukee, Wisconsin where he graduated with a BFA. In 1968 he received a fellowship from the Whitney Museum’s Independent Study Program. He received a Masters in Fine Art Degree from the University of Illinois and stayed on as a faculty member in the of the Art & Architecture Program where he taught for one year. He became a Professor of Painting & Drawing at Arizona State University and Director of the Harry Wood Art Gallery.
