Janos Enyedi's 'Images of Industry' exhibit opens in Sarasota

In any context, the artist Janos Enyedi died too soon. That he died suddenly in 2011 at 63, just six months after moving to St. Petersburg, increases the loss. In that short time, he was already a wonderful presence in the arts community.

But he created a lot of good art during his lifetime and a retrospective of his career can be seen in "Janos Enyedi: Images of Industry" at Allyn Gallup Contemporary Art. Roy Slade, former director of the Corcoran Gallery of Art and the Cranbrook Art Museum, knew Enyedi as a student; he co-curated it with his widow Diana. A free opening reception is from 6 to 8 p.m. Friday.

Enyedi worked in multiple media — photography, sculpture, mixed media and painting — to produce a grand visual narrative celebrating the rust belt and its industrial mills, ports and rail yards. His style matches his subject matter with a suggestion of constructivism, an early 20th-century art movement that valued utilitarian architecture.

"Janos' body of work is a whole," Gallup says. "Each piece contributes to an epic American story that he told across a lifetime."

    Hand to god, I'm a sucker for a good Jim Belushi movie. And the mid-'80s gave us SO many good ones from the actor. But of all odd timing, two of his more under-appreciated flicks actually were released within one week of each other 30 years ago: The Principal and Real Men.
