Dempsey's Bar 'n' Grill

by Ken Auster

Jack “the Manassa Mauler” Dempsey held the world heavyweight boxing title between 1919 and 1926. He was known for his aggressive punches, colorful personality and exciting fights, many of which broke attendance records. Dempsey’s impressive skills and tenacious attitude secured his place in American history and popular culture. It is Dempsey’s renowned rough-and-tumble style that inspired the setting of Ken Auster’s newest painting, Dempsey’s Bar ‘n’ Grill. Depicted here, a lone bartender pours out a drink before a mural of George Bellows’ 1909 painting Stag at Sharkey’s. The dynamic scene in the mural provides a contrast to the calm actions of the bartender in the foreground. Artist Ken Auster’s restaurant scenes, including his Murals I Wished I’d Seen series, combine the clamor and vivacity of the restaurant business with exuberant brushwork and compelling composition.

My Fate is Not Your Fate

by Cassandra Christensen Barney

The figures in Cassandra Christensen Barney’s paintings have the grace of angels, the enigmatic gazes of sphinxes and a history stretching back through millennia of mythology and literature. Inspired by sixteenth century art, Barney has brought us such portraits as Demetria, Eve and Pandora. Her newest piece however, My Fate Is Not Your Fate, draws on “the collective unconscious—what we all share and what is common to all of us.”

The two women in My Fate Is Not Your Fate represent the fork in a lifelong road. As children, they may have shared similar experiences, but in adulthood their paths take different directions. Although they stand beside one another as they have for years, their postures indicate alternative possibilities. We all may share many common threads but, says Barney, “we don’t all have to want the same thing.”
