The Omaha by David Mann

Lot 53S: The Omaha by David Mann

by Artistic Holdings Company

April 19, 2014, 5:00 AM PST

Las Vegas, NV, USA

Estimated Price: $1,400 - $1,740

Description: The Omaha by David Mann - Edition Size: 195 - Giclee on Canvas - Grande Edition Dimensions: 54 x 24 Release Date: 6-2009 ???.David Mann?s life focus has been his interest in the Native American culture, horses, and art. As a child, the artist collected any Remington and Russell prints he found along with books illustrated by Will James, Paul Brown, and Wesly Dennis. Mann knows his subjects well from studying the history and culture of the Western Indian tribes. Born in Utah, the artist lived among the Southwestern tribes during a two-year mission in New Mexico and Arizona. During his time with the San Carlos Apache, Navajo, and Pueblo tribes, Mann absorbed layers of meaning that give depth to the human stories he tells. This unforgettable and invaluable time spent with the Indians allowed the artist to experience first-hand the stories, dignity, and culture magic of their lives. Mann?s paintings are alive in rich colors, remarkable illusion of day and moonlight, and energetic or quiet compositions. The artist seeks to capture the personal moment of truth and has the benefit of working with Indian and mountain men who model for him. Mann looks deeply into his subjects, envisioning the joys and sorrows that have contributed to the strength of a culture. The artist?s paintings are known for careful attention to detail including clothing, saddles, jewelry, and the many other symbols and accoutrements that are part of his subjects? cultures. The combination of heart and mind, and intellect and spirit is told in the dignified presence of the Native Americans featured in the historic settings in which the artist paints them. Mann?s images portray the spirits of the historic, as well as the contemporary west, usually depicting moments in time rather than historical events when deeply rooted traditions provided spiritual and physical sustenance for the Native Americans. Mann?s original paintings are highly collected. The artist participates in several annual art exhibits around the country; he has been the subject of numerous magazine articles.

Smoky Mountain Grandeur - Mt. LeConte by Phillip Philbeck

Lot 65S: Smoky Mountain Grandeur - Mt. LeConte by Phillip Philbeck

by Artistic Holdings Company

April 19, 2014, 5:00 AM PST

Las Vegas, NV, USA

Estimated Price: $2,400 - $3,000

Description: Smoky Mountain Grandeur - Mt. LeConte by Phillip Philbeck - Edition Size: 25 - Giclee on Canvas - Artist Proof Dimensions: 30 x 60 Release Date: 11-2012 ???.North Carolina is the home of renowned landscape painter Phillip Philbeck.His subjects, mountains, rolling piedmont, and coastal views, hold great appeal with magnificent vistas, wide sandy shores, wonderful spring and fall foliage. Born in Washington, D.C., but a resident since very early childhood and presently living in rural Rutherford County, the artist enjoys the surroundings in which he grew up and is inspired to paint its farms, streams, ponds, coast or anything to which he feels an emotional attachment.Painting from his comfortable studio in his home, the artist only has to venture outside to find inspiration for his next landscape. Philbeck?s canvases reveal his immense talent in a profusion of details, and he is especially known for the skies in his images."The sky sets the basic tone for my landscapes,? states the artist.Textures, shapes, and contrasts derived from many of nature?s wonders are painted in vibrant colors; with interesting juxtaposition, the artist bathes his scenes in a dramatic light and atmosphere.Although Philbeck very much admires realism, he has a tendency toward the romantic, emotional types of images such as the Hudson River School brought forth. Growing up, the artist drew and painted whenever he could.With a heritage of an artistic and creative family, Philbeck?s father, who also painted, encouraged his son and nurtured the budding artist?s talents.Although basically self-taught, young Philbeck attended college where he was mentored by instructors who saw a passion and talent that they encouraged the artist to pursue.At the age of only 24, Philbeck began publishing limited edition prints, with many releases having sold out. Philbeck has a natural attraction to familiar places and things.He recalls fondly exploring the wooded landscapes of neighboring hills and mountains of his childhood, and he puts these many memories on his canvases.The artist?s greatest enjoyment comes from knowing that viewers can relate to his paintings or be taken back to a time when nature was a new, awe-inspiring adventure. When he is not painting, Philbeck enjoys constructing his own stretchers for his canvases and also possesses the talent to create frames for some of his paintings.The artist sometimes enjoys relaxing moments creating music with his guitar. Join Phillip Philbeck in appreciating all that nature offers.Come to the mountains and piedmont and enjoy the spring and the fall. Take in the glorious coastlines. And all other times when the landscape blooms anew or when the fall colors take your breath away or the smell the salt air brought by gentle breezes from the ocean.Take in the beautiful landscapes created by this very talented artist.

Description: Lakota Moon by David Mann - Edition Size: 15 - Giclee on Canvas - Artist Proof Dimensions: 30 x 40 Release Date: 4-2008 ???.David Mann?s life focus has been his interest in the Native American culture, horses, and art. As a child, the artist collected any Remington and Russell prints he found along with books illustrated by Will James, Paul Brown, and Wesly Dennis. Mann knows his subjects well from studying the history and culture of the Western Indian tribes. Born in Utah, the artist lived among the Southwestern tribes during a two-year mission in New Mexico and Arizona. During his time with the San Carlos Apache, Navajo, and Pueblo tribes, Mann absorbed layers of meaning that give depth to the human stories he tells. This unforgettable and invaluable time spent with the Indians allowed the artist to experience first-hand the stories, dignity, and culture magic of their lives. Mann?s paintings are alive in rich colors, remarkable illusion of day and moonlight, and energetic or quiet compositions. The artist seeks to capture the personal moment of truth and has the benefit of working with Indian and mountain men who model for him. Mann looks deeply into his subjects, envisioning the joys and sorrows that have contributed to the strength of a culture. The artist?s paintings are known for careful attention to detail including clothing, saddles, jewelry, and the many other symbols and accoutrements that are part of his subjects? cultures. The combination of heart and mind, and intellect and spirit is told in the dignified presence of the Native Americans featured in the historic settings in which the artist paints them. Mann?s images portray the spirits of the historic, as well as the contemporary west, usually depicting moments in time rather than historical events when deeply rooted traditions provided spiritual and physical sustenance for the Native Americans. Mann?s original paintings are highly collected. The artist participates in several annual art exhibits around the country; he has been the subject of numerous magazine articles.

Estimated Price: $450 - $570

Description: Grandfather Mountain by Phillip Philbeck - Edition Size: 25 - Giclee on Paper - Artist Proof Dimensions: 18 x 30 Release Date: 6-2010 ???.North Carolina is the home of renowned landscape painter Phillip Philbeck.His subjects, mountains, rolling piedmont, and coastal views, hold great appeal with magnificent vistas, wide sandy shores, wonderful spring and fall foliage. Born in Washington, D.C., but a resident since very early childhood and presently living in rural Rutherford County, the artist enjoys the surroundings in which he grew up and is inspired to paint its farms, streams, ponds, coast or anything to which he feels an emotional attachment.Painting from his comfortable studio in his home, the artist only has to venture outside to find inspiration for his next landscape. Philbeck?s canvases reveal his immense talent in a profusion of details, and he is especially known for the skies in his images."The sky sets the basic tone for my landscapes,? states the artist.Textures, shapes, and contrasts derived from many of nature?s wonders are painted in vibrant colors; with interesting juxtaposition, the artist bathes his scenes in a dramatic light and atmosphere.Although Philbeck very much admires realism, he has a tendency toward the romantic, emotional types of images such as the Hudson River School brought forth. Growing up, the artist drew and painted whenever he could.With a heritage of an artistic and creative family, Philbeck?s father, who also painted, encouraged his son and nurtured the budding artist?s talents.Although basically self-taught, young Philbeck attended college where he was mentored by instructors who saw a passion and talent that they encouraged the artist to pursue.At the age of only 24, Philbeck began publishing limited edition prints, with many releases having sold out. Philbeck has a natural attraction to familiar places and things.He recalls fondly exploring the wooded landscapes of neighboring hills and mountains of his childhood, and he puts these many memories on his canvases.The artist?s greatest enjoyment comes from knowing that viewers can relate to his paintings or be taken back to a time when nature was a new, awe-inspiring adventure. When he is not painting, Philbeck enjoys constructing his own stretchers for his canvases and also possesses the talent to create frames for some of his paintings.The artist sometimes enjoys relaxing moments creating music with his guitar. Join Phillip Philbeck in appreciating all that nature offers.Come to the mountains and piedmont and enjoy the spring and the fall. Take in the glorious coastlines. And all other times when the landscape blooms anew or when the fall colors take your breath away or the smell the salt air brought by gentle breezes from the ocean.Take in the beautiful landscapes created by this very talented artist.

Description: Rocky Mountain Meadow by Nancy Glazier - Edition Size: 25 - Giclee on Canvas - Artist Proof Dimensions: 20 x 45 Release Date: 10-2006 ???.Nancy Glazier is passionate about her art and the subject of her art. This passion is evident in the way she paints and the way she lives ? they are inseparable. Surrounded by mountain beauty and the animals the artist loves to paint, Glazier says, ?I feel a kinship with the animal that grows as the painting progresses. There is a powerful chemistry at work. People ask me, ?Which is your favorite animal to paint?? I can tell you it is always the very animal I am painting at the time." For Glazier, it is ??a warm, living, breathing process that brings me back again and again to the easel. It is my ultimate reward.? Many of the artist?s admirers and collectors consider Glazier to be an extraordinary artist whose paintings seem ?alive.? For her, this is warm praise, because she desires to share what she experiences through her paintings. She hopes the viewer, too, will feel the warmth of the sun or the crisp chill of winter, smell the sage and dust, or hear the bellow of the bison. Glazier knew she wanted to be an artist from early childhood. In her teens, she lived in Wyoming where she immersed herself in the rugged, western terrain. There she was mentored and taught by artist Adolph Spohr, who gave her private instruction and taught her how a professional uses paint and brush?how to observe and self-correct. The artist?s style evolved over time. After seeing a dramatic photograph of a grizzly, she was awakened to a desire to paint animals ?close up and hair-by-hair.? The artist has taken hands-on anatomy classes that enable her to paint an amazingly accurate portrait of an animal from its bone structure to muscles to hair, bringing it life on her canvas. The artist enjoys much success as one of today?s most talented wildlife painters. Her original works are represented by one of America?s leading galleries. Her paintings have been featured at prestigious shows throughout the country, and two of her works hang in the Museum of Church History and Art in Salt Lake City. Glazier and her husband reside in an idyllic setting in Nevada where a spacious studio allows her to create her extraordinary paintings and continue her journey of discovery to capture ?the whole picture.?

JAMES C. CHRISTENSEN - THE RICH YOUNG RULER

Lot 419W: JAMES C. CHRISTENSEN - THE RICH YOUNG RULER

by Artistic Holdings Company

April 19, 2014, 5:00 AM PST

Las Vegas, NV, USA

Estimated Price: $750 - $1,000

Description: James C. Christensen - The Rich Young Ruler - Hand Signed - Limited Edition Canvas - Image Size: 25"w X 20"h. Limited Edition Of: 550 - How Much Are You Willing To Sacrifice To Follow What You Believe? That Is The Dilemma James C. Christensen Presents In "the Rich Young Ruler." Christensen?s Most Popular Scriptural Works Have Focused On The Challenge To Live Our Faith, To Give All That We Have And To Live In A State Of Thankfulness. Just Before His Triumphal Entrance Into Jerusalem, Jesus Passed Through A Town Where A Righteous Young Man Asked Him What He Could Do To Inherit Eternal Life. The Young Man Told Jesus How He Followed The Commandments And Obeyed The Laws Of His People, But Jesus Asked Something More: ?go, Sell Everything You Have And Give To The Poor,? He Said, ?and You Will Have Treasure In Heaven. Then Come, Follow Me.? The Home Of "the Rich Young Ruler" Is Filled With Symbols Of Both His Success And His Dilemma. The Laden Camels In The Frieze In The Foreground Illustrate Jesus? Next Words To His Disciples, ?it Is Easier For A Camel To Go Through The Eye Of A Needle Than For A Rich Man To Enter The Kingdom Of God.? The Ruler Himself Is Richly Dressed In Fine Fabrics And Jewels And The Room Is Filled With Lush Plants, Which In A Desert Setting Would Be Quite Costly To Maintain. Sputtering Beside The Entrance To The Door Is The Ruler?s Lamp That, Like The Flame Of His Belief, Wavers In The Wind. These Symbols, Combined With Christensen?s Unique Style, Make "the Rich Young Ruler" An Elegant Story Of Difficult Decisions And Of A Master Who Will Always Look Back And Offer Another Chance. ?the Original Painting Was Commissioned By A Successful Businessman, Today?s Equivalent Of A Rich Young Ruler,? Says Christensen. ?he Wanted A Visual Reminder That Success Has Many Forms And That Faith Is Its Own Reward. He Wanted To Ask Himself Every Day What He Would Have Done In That Situation.???about The Artist - James C. Christensen Inspired By The World's Myths, Fables And Tales Of Imagination, James C.

Be Not Afraid by James Seward

Lot 448S: Be Not Afraid by James Seward

by Artistic Holdings Company

April 19, 2014, 5:00 AM PST

Las Vegas, NV, USA

Estimated Price: $1,700 - $2,125

Description: Be Not Afraid by James Seward - Edition Size: 15 - Giclee on Canvas - Artist Proof Dimensions: 24 x 48 Release Date: 3-2011 ???.James Seward was born in Alabama, and raised in Tennessee. He spent summers with his grandparents in the wild back-country of Alabama. When he was six, his grandfather bought him his first set of oil paints, and as a young child he often painted his grandparents by lamp-light, to their great astonishment. "From the time I was five years old, I was continually painting and drawing in that great environment,? the artist remembers with fondness. After military service, Seward spent a year studying art under Howard Boyd Johnson at Watkins Institute in Nashville. In 1947, he enrolled at the Art Institute of Chicago, where he met his wife, Lyn. A year later they were married. After graduation, Seward apprenticed at two Chicago commercial art studios, but in 1954, the family moved to the midwest. After a year with an agency, he joined Union Gospel Press for the next six years. Since that time, Seward has been self-employed as a freelance illustrator and painter and has created works for most of the large protestant denominations including Standard Publishing in Cincinnati, the Methodists and Baptists in Nashville, the Concordia Lutherans in St. Louis, and the Nazarene Publishing House. Although the artist had attended church since childhood, after leaving for the Navy in 1944, he dropped his church attendance. In 1953, two former friends with whom he?d lost contact felt moved to pray for his salvation. And in 1954 when he and his family attended church with a neighbor, Jim and Lyn gave their lives to Christ.. Currently Jim is an ordained minister for the "Christ-Life Fellowship? headquartered in Dallas, Texas. He has spoken around the United States as well as in South Africa. He writes articles, makes teaching tapes and works on religious books. His religious paintings express his passion for Christ. Seward has completed over 22 illustrations for a Doubleday book entitled, Ancient Greece. In 1987 and 1989, he was one of 100 artists from around the country picked for the National Arts in the Parks Competition. James E. Seward has been commissioned for portraitures by many organizations. His paintings grace the walls of such companies as the General Motors Corporation, the Wells Fargo Bank, The McDonald Investment Company, and the Will Rogers Museum in Oklahoma. "I try not only to inform, but to move and delight with my artwork?I want the viewer to have an emotional reaction to each painting. That?s what makes it a work of art rather than just an illustration.? - James E. Seward James Seward passed away in December 2011
