Ginofor Gallery – George Forss – Theater of the arts

21 Mar

I have been changing my gallery a bit.  Not giving up what I have been doing but combining everything I do more. This seems to work for me.

I have four new views of my gallery store room here, which is also my movie theater house and my music listening room … and also my old fashion movie projection theater as well.

I still have about 35 artists that I represent.  I have the capability of showing movies much like a large theater does with surround sound suddenly.  I can darken the room quickly with theater curtains.  Sometimes I will run two things at the same time.  I have, for instance, a surveillance camera that is aimed out of my gallery window at the street outside.  This camera’s view is projected onto a very large rear projection screen.  I can do this while I am playing some serious concert music through my surround sound system.

So, while anything is going on in my theater you can view hundreds of art.  I do some kind of presentation on Saturday afternoons.  Sometimes I have Opera from the Met, off the radio !

I am open to anything anyone wants to do at my theater.  Recently, someone brought a disk of Joseph Campbell lectures about Mythology.  This is super intellectual stuff.  I ran this two times and I looked at it a third time.  There is a foundation that handles this mans imperious views about humanity and our worldwide cultural past … and about human phycology !

Another thing that happened has to do with a box of old 8mm films in a box that  Jack, of Jack’s Outback, brought to me to explore.

Can there be anything more outmoded  that 8mm films ?  Well, in looking at one of these films I saw some travel films someone did in the 1963 – 1968.  This person went around the world with a group of people taking movies in this period.

In one film this traveling group is in the Hollylands with four big American cars.  This is a big  ‘So wHAT ?’ BUT.  hAH.  These are four 1960’s cars with big fins.  The four cars are seen going to various sites with the occupants waving back at the movie camera.  It was such a big deal doing movies like this in those days.  I saw a Desoto with fins,  a Chevrolet with gull wings, some kind of Plymouth with fins and another black sedan that may be a Lincoln.

One thing, films like these are an honest portal view of the past.

Look at my attachments are showing all the stuff, old and new, that  I have accumulated for my theater.  I had to drag two large rear projection screen TV’s from the street into my gallery.  These are a lot of fun to me.  I use them to display large paintings as well.

I can make a  DVD out of old films  Don’t throw your family heritage away so fast.

Donna observing her art at the Salem Courthouse Gallery

I took a few pictures during the hanging for this show.  It went great and I want to recommend this show event for anyone who loves art.

I believe that donna is a find in the art world.

Location >>>> Make a right at the light.  Yes.  Make a right at the light.

When you are approaching Salem from the south on #22, make a right turn at the main light.  Looking straight ahead you will see the white courthouse building.

Barbara Beckwith portraits of Aliens – Art sale at Ginofor Gallery

24 Feb

Aunt Barbs scary gray Signed (36 x 24)

Alien portrait no. 1

I have three Alien portraits to view here.  These are large art by Barbara Beckwith.  Barbara claimed to have been visited by Aliens in here life.  This one, portrait No.1, is 36 x 24 inches.  These are from the estate of Barbara Beckwith.  Barbara died in 2013 at the age of 90.  I have seven files of Alien portraits.  Barbara Beckwith’s nephew, Peter Pasternak, is handling her estate.

We do not know what to do with Barbara’s art exactly.  I am told that I can act as a broker.  In these modern times things in someone’s estate can be sold at auction real fast or in the case of a person’s art, they can be just thrown out !   Barbara did very charming portraits of people and abstract landscapes with alien faces and vessels in them.  In my recent blog, you can see a view of my gallery with two Barbara Beckwith abstract paintings showing.  The two paintings are not signed.  The Alien portraits are signed.  I think the Alien portraits can be sold as one lot, so to speak. Someone can make an offer for a set of these three !  I can them relate the offer to peter and we would take it from there.

The portrait above shows an Alien that is a rather stern looking, to say the least.  Hah !  You do not want to mess with this one.  You will find yourself in cat anomic (spelling?) state suddenly.  This is what they do.  OK who says they even exist ?

Anyway, I have two more to view here.  Make an offer !

Aunt Barbs abstract 3 unsigned (24 x 12)

George Forss Symphony No. 5 Why was I born ?

14 Feb

KODAK Digital Still Camera

“Faithful Hound”

I was parked in a mall when I saw this scene.  My car was facing this truck.  Inside was a dog waiting faithfully for his master. I knew I had a sensitive picture here . I got into a position to make the composition you see here and then I waited until the posturing of the dog was just right.

What does this picture have to do with my symphony No. 5 ?

This will give you something that you will recall looking at while you are listening to my symphony.  My symphony’s do not have rigid tempo nor continuous music.  I compose music utilizing an array of electronic feedback sounds.  In 2003 – 2004 my studio Hi Fi components wiring was so screwed up that weird electronic feedback sounds were coming through.  I decided to leave it all alone for a while because I was fascinated by the way I was able to make all kinds of sounds when I had all my instruments on and running.  I could make all kinds of hi and low sounds and tremolo effects together with reverberating echo sounds.  I claim that I am getting a sort of spiritual presence in my electronic feedback sound recordings once I am in a sort of  mediumistic mindset.  You have to read the text page for each symphony to understand this better.  I made a recording to represent each symphony I created on an old reel to reel tape deck.  I love pauses in my music.  You will notice this while listening.  There will be sudden sounds that are quit eerie. Also, there will be some great tempo thumps and amazingly high treble sounds, especially when the infant presence in this symphony is being born.  This particular baby is here to kick butt it seems. The symphony ends with a military dirge that is very stirring.

My symphony in four movements top to bottom.

Here are the D jacket and text …

G Forss Symphony No. 5  Why was I born Text     I sell my symphony CD’s for $20. add $5. for shipping.  I have symphony No 4.9,6 and 8 on my blog.  You can find these in 2014 and 2015 recent months past.

One more Mall scene !  This is my lady mate pushing a red shopping cart in …”Donna in mall ma ma land”.  This is what I call this picture.  This is four pictures stitched together.  My digital prints sell for $35. for 8 1/2 x 11 100% rag and $65. for 11 x14. This stitched picture I can make about 8 x 20 for $65.  Add $15. for shipping.

G Forss  View of Gallery TV's and Art

A view of my Gallery with large TV displays

             If it looks to you like I have three large TV’s in place, you are right.  I have three TV’s going when I run a movie event at my George Forss  Theater of the Arts.  I have an event every Saturday around 2:30 pm.  I have two old rear projection TV’s and a Flat Screen TV.  I feature classic movies. art instruction videos, my own art films, live opera from the radio, and anyone ‘s request for a small group event. I can seat 8 people in comfort.  I have a big couch I call my green cloud plus 2 classic office chairs that swivel and tilt, and a big momma arm chair that  I think Sophie Tucker sat in and two other chairs and a cushioned stool.  Movies and such shown in the setup I have are richer than super HD theaters.

I would not want three large HD TV’s here.  It would be too much.

I want to sell more art.  So, I decided to sell most of my art at a make an offer price.  I will state a price and then we can negotiate.  I cannot sell the professional artist I represent for too little but I happen to have three George Van Hook art at half price.  I have Harry Orlyk at the same price he has had for years.  I remember that he was going to double his prices  (he is doing very well) but he has not.  The two abstracts you see in the above picture were just placed in my gallery.  This is art from the estate of Barbara Beckwith from Vermont.  These are not signed, still these are fun art that will cheer up your home.  Art is what you want in your home. Art makes you glad you are alive !   Barbara died recently at age 90.

The God’s are dead.

29 Jan

I get info, like the bit of ‘news’ above every once and a while in a certain way. I just got this info ! This is not sheer nonsense because every one of the info ‘news items’, if you will, that I have been getting for years … that I have been using in my writings has not failed (been proven wrong).  This kind of thinking is easy to discount.  This is so because we are all mostly preoccupied with making money.   Making a good life for ourselves and family.  We just do not want to hear stupid stuff !

I have been told that the ancient ones, the Gods are dead … bada boom … just like that.  Science knows the Gods.

Science knows about the Gods of old but does not give any more thought about them other than maybe figuring that they left us flat.  WE ALL KNOW THEM.  They are the basis of all our religions.  It is just not good business.  Good Rat Race business to dwell on something like this.  There is something else that can be said about this kind of info … SO WHAT !

Yeah, OK

Here are three bits of info I have had for years that cannot be discounted … even though you will be sure that these items are wrong.

1. We are the only life form in this universe.

2.  We are born to find a perfect mate in this living and then we do not come physical life any more.

3.  There is no single God personage.  WE are God !

About no.1  We have not found any others ‘out there’ and any others have not found us.  When this happens I shut up.

About no. 2  I have never met anyone who is not looking for a perfect mate in life, no matter what they say about themselves.

About no. 3   Mere observation.  Looking about without any bias ( having to have fixed opinions on subjects) tells us that good and bad things happen and it is not even by chance, it is worse than this.  We tend to not make bad things happen to us but still we suffer when something bad happens.  Observation tells us that we are growing from these experiences or that we are released from this place to get some peace at last, sort of.  I find that a persons fate is a growing thing that is going good or bad, that this is something we as God have some control over.  Other than this, if there was a single God that is thinking about everyone at all times (if this were possible) it would be great.

The Gods

It turns out that the Gods were from another universe.  They came here to live again.  I do not know if they are totally responsible for  life on our planet, which is an amazingly glorious thing, but they did hybrid breeding with some ape types and they succeeded with humanity.  Now they are gone.  They used to be all over our skies and we had dragons like creatures, giant beings, etc.  We had more of a variety creatures than we know now.  We know the super Gods by what they left behind.  We are the Gods !

Coming from another universe is fine but you cannot stay in any other universe for long that is not your natural one.  Humanity has this problem.  We cannot stay here for many millions of years.  We can do something to hang on for many more thousands of years though.  I was told many years ago that we should use our advanced technology to have better truth detection, that this will help if we can incorporate more real truth in our affairs.  This way we will need less politicians … and this will keep our universe, the one we are in now, immune system at bay and we can live here longer.  Badaboom.

I have some files of Donna Wynbrandt art here.   Donna has the old Gods in her art it seems.

Check out her blog.  www.donnawynbrandt.com

These are for sale but we do not prices for her original art and copies of her art yet.
