LIKE MIND: Art Exhibition by Jason Newsted and Nicole Newsted, Tequesta, FL

Part-time Jupiter Island residents Jason Newsted and Nicole Newsted return to Lighthouse ArtCenter in Tequesta with Like Mind, an exhibition showing their individual large and small-scale work. Curated by Janeen Mason and sponsored by First Republic Bank, the exhibition runs from January 19 – March 1 and is free for members, with a $5 suggested donation for nonmembers. An Opening Reception sponsored by Meyer Law Firm takes place on Thursday, January 19, from 5 – 7 pm. Jason Newsted will perform a benefit concert in the gallery on February 11 from 7 -9 pm. The intimate show will be limited to one-hundred tickets at $100 per ticket. For more information, visit lighthousearts.org.

A six-time Grammy Award winner and Rock & Roll Hall of Famer, Jason Newsted is famous for his contributions to the Metallica band from 1986-2001. Beyond his many musical achievements, he is a self-taught multi-media artist. His first visual art exhibit was in May of 2010. Newsted has shown successfully at Art New York, Art Miami, Art Basel, and in duo exhibits with his wife Nicole Newsted at Lighthouse ArtCenter. His work mixes iconography, sometimes including guitars with abstract geometric and biomorphic forms, using a raw, expressive style. His paintings are highly textural, with otherworldly subjects and layered with meaning.

“Mending from disjointed pandemic years, we re-connect in Like Mind to share again,” said Jason Newsted. “Images built from opposite influences and common attractions bring us closer; they’re bright and previously unseen works developed and created through our journey together.”

Nicole Newsted is a talented painter who studied art on scholarship at Arizona State University. Her paintings are in collections across the U.S., Europe, the Middle East, and Asia. Nicole’s paintings on canvas use brilliant colors that depict maximalism in a minimalist setting. Her work is characterized by escapist and endearing subject matter, including brightly colored candies, donuts, and care bears that evoke comforting childhood memories.

“My work is an ongoing survey of the objects, landscapes, and people around me: both past and present. I am drawn to the overly-saturated, the kitschy, and the saccharine. My paintings are meditations on objects made of plastic, polyester, and artificial flavoring.”

Proceeds from the concerts and a portion of the proceeds from art will go toward the ArtCenter’s mission to inspire, engage, and connect all walks of life through the universal language of art through classes, exhibitions, and events. One of the ArtCenter’s signature programs, Art For All, offers art to underserved populations regardless of financial resources. The program provides youth scholarships, art education to schools that would otherwise not have art in their curriculum, and art classes to veterans, seniors, and individuals with special needs.
