Berkeley College Exhibits the Work of Charles Mingus III

-         Skilled Artist in Metal Spinning, Sculpture, and Environmental Pieces  

 

Berkeley College is exhibiting the artwork of Charles Mingus III at its New York City Midtown Campus Gallery, First Floor Lobby, 3 East 43rd Street. This exhibit will be on display from March 3 through 31.  It is open to the public Monday through Friday from 9:00 am to 7:00 pm and on Saturday from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm.  An artist’s reception will be held on Wednesday, March 10, from 5:30 to 7:30 pm.   

 

A native of Los Angeles, CA, Charles Mingus III is the son of legendary bassist and composer Charles Mingus II.  After studying with master calligrapher Shiro Ikegawa, he moved to New York, NY, and developed his skills in metal spinning, sculpture, and environmental art. 

 

Now recognized as one of America’s most gifted and versatile artists, Mr. Mingus’s work is a part of such distinguished collectors as Daniel Filipacchi, Ivan Karp, and the estates of Larry Rivers, Willem de Kooning, Baroness de Koenigswarter Rothschild, and Allan Stone. 

 

The New York Public Library has featured his paintings and sculptures, as has the cutting-edge Chelsea art space, 532 Gallery Thomas Jaeckel. Working in a variety of media, the artist also has enjoyed numerous solo and group exhibitions across the US, Europe, and Japan.

Mr. Mingus has been a teacher and lecturer in art and multimedia at the School of Visual Arts, NY; Towson State University, MD; and Empire State College at SUNY, NY, in addition to teaching a master class in theater at the Strasberg Institute, NY.  He has been profiled in many books and magazines, among them The New York Times, New Yorker, and New York Arts. 

For more information about the exhibit, please contact Berkeley Gallery Curator Bob Keiber at rjk@BerkeleyCollege.edu or call 212-252-2065.
