Broadway Arts Festival Broadway, The Cotswolds, Worcestershire, WR12 June 3 to 19


The charming, biennial Broadway Arts Festival has its origin in the late 19th century, when the famous American artist John Singer Sargent paid many visits to this classic Cotswold village and during his time here painted his ‘en plein air’ masterpiece Carnation, Lily, Lily, Rose. It is a celebration of the spirit of that age, when the Broadway Colony flourished and many dis- tinguished artists, musicians and authors spent time together in this beautiful Cotswolds village. This year there are a selection of


art exhibitions and master classes, a Patrick Lichfield photograph exhibition, art workshops, talks, and musical events including ‘Conflict’,


48 The American


an exhibition of paintings and mixed media from 150 finalists of the Open Art Competition. Talks include war artist George Butler (June 16) who walked from Turkey to Syria and became an unofficial guest of the rebel Free Syrian Army; former director of The National Por- trait Gallery, Singer Sargent expert and great nephew, Richard Ormond (June 3); and BAF Patron, art histo- rian, museum curator, writer, broad- caster and landscape designer, Sir Roy Strong (June 4) on the search for Shakespeare’s Garden.


Dan Flavin: It is what it is and it ain’t nothing else Ikon Gallery, 1 Oozells Square, Brindleyplace Birmingham B1 2HS to June 26


A major exhibition of fluorescent light works by American minimal- ist artist Dan Flavin (1933–1996), famous for creating sculptural objects and installations from com- mercially available fluorescent light fixtures. After studying at Colum- bia University in the late 1950s, Flavin became acquainted with other emerging American artists whose work contrasted to Abstract Expressionism, including Sol LeWitt, Robert Ryman, Frank Stella, Barnett Newman and Donald Judd. He was especially close to the latter – both sharing an interest in artworks that refer to nothing but their factual presence, with an emphasis on industrial materials and intense color, and significantly he dedicated a number of works to Judd.
