The Alternative Worlds of James Antonie

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.   He was awarded a Sabbatical Research Grant called The Artist and Ecology, which was an interaction between Scientists and Artists.  James was the co-founder of the Inter-Media Department at ASU, the first multi-disciplinary art program in the US.
