Whaling - The Advent of Art Collecting

Posted: June 01, 2012 07:10 Last Updated: | Rex Stewart

Documents, motion pictures, lectures, and annual gatherings -all are mediums working together to bring back the era of whaling. With this year's celebration at Mystic Seaport, in Mystic Connecticut, with the restoration of whaleship CHARLES W. MORGAN, more art venues are honing in on whaling themes in high numbers. At homes on Cape Cod, shoreline communities in and around New England, and maritime communities -worldwide, the whale has been an integral part of our culture. In history and art, there is no comparison to the degree of interest this mammal has promoted. Each year there are co...

Damaged Van Ryper Models -The Great Investment / Rex Stewart

Posted: May 20, 2012 09:38 Last Updated: | Rex Stewart

Some years ago it was suggested that I build waterline models for profitable sales, similiar to the work of noted builder Charles Van Ryper. At that time I was not familiar with his work, nor did I know the history about his contemporary "Art Deco' style which emerged when he produced his Travel Series prior to the Second World War. Today, in the maritime arts, especially in the Collectible market of ship models, there seem to be a strong resurgence of collectors sprouting up in America and across the atlantic relative to the antique shipmodels of Charles Van Ryper. This is due, in part,...

Miniature Collectibles - The Stewart Collection of Classic Ships

Posted: April 15, 2012 08:31 Last Updated: | Rex Stewart

It's evident on the collectible's circuit that miniature ship models have taken on a new perspective as an artform. In recent times it has been garnered the distinctive titleship as being a highend collectible under the auctioneer's hammer -and bidding participants who look upon these tiny gems, with awe and appreciation, anticipate ownership. These ship miniatures have been bought, sold, and appraised for hundreds (sometimes thousand of dollars) -attesting to the fact that these are, indeed, highly desirable art pieces. Ship models, or rather, the ship model has long been regarded in ...

Flea Market Finds...

Or what finds YOU at the flea market.  As you may know, I am re-examining my roots and heading back to Philly to open my own antique store.  The antique and design scene there is growing at a break neck pace as new locales are created and new traditions begun.  I have been writing about the store and looking at ways to become involved in this growing scene.  One of those ideas was to set up at a local flea market...   Flea markets are where I began to first understand antiques and where I began my business those ten years ago in New York City.  So, it se...

SHIP MODEL Miniature - Defining the art

Posted: March 26, 2012 10:34 Last Updated: | Rex Stewart

It has been long regarded that ship models exist as a craftsman's art and has never been taken seriously as a true artform. On the contrary... Over the years, as both artist and historian, I have studied this art trend -and to my amazement and awe, found that the artist and the artform has, in my most humble observation, been a medium much sought after. Moreover, with the recent passing of noted British artist Donald McNarry, world-wide collectors have scowered the maritime searching for his signature miniatures since his retirement from the medium in 1983. At the auction house of Chri...

The last 100 lots of Clarke Auction’s March 18th sale include a variety of American and International oil paintings, drawings, and prints that the Auction had unearthed from a storage unit, earlier this week, but the discovery of the fine art is not the only conquest of Clarke Auction for the upcoming auction.

Maritime Shadowboxes - Defining A Contemporary Style

Posted: March 08, 2012 06:22 Last Updated: | Rex Stewart

Shadowboxes came into vogue as sailor keepsakes during the 18th century when crews placed in this window-framed box items that denoted a sailor or officer's career while with a ship. This was the early shadowbox. Since then, the shadowbox has developed into pictureque two-dimensional form containing either cultural or maritime-related subjects. As the American maritime market grew in the mid-70s, so did the shadowbox. These were bulky wall pieces that centered around a shipmodel that was plaed in a setting with other vessels or coastal scenes which either depicted a lighthouse or town. T...

No Good Deed Goes Unpunished

Posted: November 29, 2011 10:27 Last Updated: | Heather Karlie Vieira

My neighbor described it as a desperate act.  An act forced upon dealers whose need for sales outweighed any other factors.  With this, I envisioned a rather gloomy scene of empty show aisles, dealers trolling booths looking for steals for which they could offset payment and the few potential customers that might be there would be saying over and over, "I'll think about it...".   But that was not to be the case.  Instead it was a vibrant show.  With happy dealers.  And a buying public out in full force.  While it wasn't the best show of my career th...

For the Love of Passion?

Posted: October 07, 2011 13:32 Last Updated: | Heather Karlie Vieira

Can you follow your passion?  Can you live a life full of only what you hold dear?  Is this possible?  Well sure.  Sort of.  Let's talk about artists.  Creators who produce work that is wholly about their passion.  Artists who break barriers and cause us to stop and think.  Artists who challenge the old guard and what has always been to create what will be.  Often times, these artists are not fully appreciated in their own time.  So, I ask you - Can you follow your passion or do you have to follow the money?   The idealistic me s...
