Lovers of abstract art and gourmet food were in their element Thursday night when the Newport Harbor Art Museum held a Founders Preview of "American Abstraction From the Addison Gallery of American Art." About 130 guests gathered at the Newport Beach museum for an after-hours reception staged by Cartier and museum trustees to ponder the abstract art, sip champagne and sample exotic hors d'oeuvres from the kitchen of Patina restaurant in Los Angeles.

Nineteen-fifty, for April Kingsley, marked a pivotal point in the development of Abstract Expressionism (AbEx). It was the year that many of the painters associated with AbEx (Arshile Gorky and Hans Hoffman), designated as AbEx (Newman, Rothko, Reinhardt, Brooks, Baziotes, etc.) or identified with AbEx (Pollack, De Kooning, Guston and Kline) all had found galleries and had exhibitions.

Keith Boadwee's body pops up in each body of work he makes. In the past, it has served as a canvas for his juicy, pseudo-Expressionist paintings; as a stage on which finger-puppets frolic; and as a prop in do-it-yourself photographs of modern masterpieces. This time around, Boadwee turns himself into a human spray-gun, squirting colorful streams of paint out of his derriere.

THE artistry of '60s rock icons Jimi Hendrix and Janis Joplin wasn't limited to their Rock and Roll Hall of Fame music. As it happens, both were deeply interested in visual art before their music careers took off, and several of their drawings and paintings will be on display in Hollywood in conjunction with this year's Mods & Rockers Film Festival put on by American Cinematheque.
