At heart Tony Pollard Jersey , Ernie Barnes the professional football player was always Ernie Barnes the artist.

His teammates on the San Diego Chargers nicknamed him ”Big Rembrandt” because he was always scribbling on pieces of paper.

He ended up painting vivid and highly acclaimed images from the playing field and from African-American life. He’s most famous for ”Sugar Shack,” which shows African-Americans dancing at the Durham Armory. Marvin Gaye used a version of it for an album cover, and a print of it appeared in the closing credits of the sitcom ”Good Times.”

Now, an exhibit has opened in his home state titled “The North Carolina Roots of Artist Ernie Barnes.” The exhibit at the North Carolina Museum of History includes 38 paintings by Barnes, many unseen by the public until now, along with several pieces of memorabilia.

It’s the first exhibit of Barnes’ artwork in 11 years, and the first since he died at age 70 in 2009 in Los Angeles. It continues through March 3.

Barnes never considered football his true calling. From his childhood, he was drawn to art. In his 1995 autobiography, ”From Pads to Palette,” he wrote, ”Throughout my five seasons in the arena of professional football, I remained at the deepest level of my being an artist.”

But he played professionally from 1960 to 1964, signing first with the Baltimore Colts and then with the Titans of New York, the San Diego Chargers and the Denver Broncos. His sports connections led to his first exhibit through the support of New York Jets owner Sonny Werblin. And Barnes credited football with helping him develop the elongation technique for which he’s known.

An art instructor told him ”to pay attention to what my body felt like in movement,” Barnes once said. ”And when I did that, it was an elongated feeling. … I hate to think, had I not played sports Noah Fant Jersey , what my work would look like.”

He also spoke of how the ”dehumanization” of professional football played out in his art. ”I painted until I exhausted the hate,” he said, according to comments provided by his estate.

Troy Vincent, the NFL’s vice president of operations, is probably the largest collector of Barnes’ art and someone in whom Barnes confided about his love-hate relationship with football. Vincent estimates that he owns just shy of 30 Barnes’ paintings, most of them commissioned and never seen by the public.

In a phone interview, Vincent said that he and his wife ”didn’t classify it as black art. He happens to be African-American, but it’s not black art. It’s art.”

At the time of Barnes’ death, Paul Von Blum, an art history and African American studies professor at the University of California, Los Angeles, called him one of the premier figurative artists of his era.

Barnes, who was born in 1938 in Durham during the Jim Crow era, graduated from what’s now North Carolina Central University. His painting, ”Homecoming,” shows a marching band in Durham with U.S. 15-501 signs in the background.

”Ernie said when he was growing up, the high school band used to come down from the segregated area and make the turn into the black community http://www.broncosauthorizedshops.com/authentic-dalton-risner-jersey , and the band would kick it up right there,” Luz Rodriguez, his longtime assistant and estate trustee said last week in Raleigh before the exhibit opened. ”So that’s what he painted.”

”Sugar Shack” came from Barnes’ memories growing up in Durham, Rodriguez said. His mother had told the 13-year-old Barnes that ”they don’t do Christian things there” so of course he had to sneak in to find out what was happening, she said.

Actor and comedian Eddie Murphy owns the painting now, exhibit curator Katie Edwards said. A second version that Barnes painted is part of the North Carolina museum exhibit.

Barnes could bring to life ”the hopes and dreams of what could be – families together, strong men, strong women, the true representation of the godly family,” Vincent said. Barnes was able to ”share our dark past yet articulate in color what the future could be – the proudness of our history, the proudness of our future. Ernie encapsulated all of that.”

TEMPE, Ariz. — Arizona Cardinals coach Bruce Arians says a report that he and the franchise have agreed to part ways after this season is untrue, labeling it “fake news.”An article in Pro Football Weekly cited “multiple sources” as saying the split would come next week at the end of Arians’ fifth season as the team’s head coach.But the 65-year-old coach said nothing has been decided.“Nothing’s changed,” he said on Tuesday. “I don’t know where that came from. Nothing changed in the last month and a half and people keep asking me the same questions.”As for the article’s author Hub Arkush, Arians said, “I don’t know who the heck this guy is or where these supposed meetings took place.”Arians can become the winningest coach in Cardinals history with his 50th victory at Seattle in the season finale on Sunday.Arians is 49-32-1 in five seasons with the Cardinals, including the postseason. They are 7-8 this season.Arians is a two-time NFL Coach of the Year Drew Lock Jersey , for his work as an interim coach in place of Chuck Pagano in 2012 and after directing to the Cardinals to an 11-5 record and a playoff berth in 2014. Arizona went 13-3 and advanced to the NFC championship game in 2015 but slipped to 7-8-1 in 2016.Arians has had health issues, including surgery to remove a cancerous portion of his liver last offseason. But he said he has been healthy through this season.“That’s been a big difference (knocking on a wooden table for good luck while he spoke),” he said, “having no major things happen this year was huge.”Arians outlined his plans for deciding whether it’s time to go.“We’ll come back (from Seattle) on the plane and get everything finalized through the season and get all the reports like we always do, get all our end-the-season business done,” he said, “sit down with my wife and son and daughter and we’ll talk about it and see what we want to do,” he said, “make a decision sometime between Monday and February, whenever (team president) Michael (Bidwill) lets me.”Arians is part of a triumvirate of uncertainty in Arizona.Larry Fitzgerald hasn’t said whether he will come back for another season. Neither has quarterback Carson Palmer, who is recovering from a broken arm that ended his season prematurely. Palmer, who was having a solid season before he was hurt, turns 38 on Wednesday.Arians said the decisions of Fitzgerald and Palmer will have no bearing on what he decides to do.The coach talked of how Arizona could be “a very dominant defense next year” after the way it performed the past few weeks. Arizona’s 23-0 victory over the New York Giants on Sunday was the Cardinals’ first shutout in 25 years.Arians talked about how much he loves to develop young quarterbacks.“That’s always been the most exciting thing in coaching to me,” he said.There’s the looming return of running back David Johnson, who broke his left wrist in the opener, depriving Arizona of one of the league’s best players.“That’s a great one,” Arians said of reasons to come back http://www.broncosauthorizedshops.com/authentic-dre_mont-jones-jersey , “maybe 2,000, 2,500 reasons.”A reference to the kind of yards gained Johnson could bring.But Arians also acknowledged that when he was “re-fired,” as he calls it, as offensive coordinator by Pittsburgh in 2011 he and his wife Christine were fine with the move away from the game after his many years as an assistant coach.“We were really fine with it at that time,” Arians said. “She was `really’ fine with it. Obviously the call from Chuck (Pagano) and we hit the lottery as far as coaching goes and it’s been an unbelievable six years since then. That’s the one thing you think about it. Oh my gosh, what if they win the Super Bowl next year and you’re not going to be there?“Dick LeBeau always said `I was going to retire at 70, then I would have missed two Super Bowls.'”There’s that beautiful house on the lake waiting for him in Georgia.But Arians said when he’s not excited about the job, “that’s when you know it’s time.”“I was up at 5 (a.m.) and excited to get here,” he said on Tuesday. “That hasn’t changed.”NOTE: Safety Antoine Bethea, who intercepted Eli Manning twice on Sunday, has a torn pectoral muscle and will miss the season finale. He has five interceptions this season.
