FRIDAY, APRIL 15, 1988

W

hen Louis Red-
stone's water color
exhibit opened at
the Cade Gallery in Royal
Oak last Saturday, it was like
publishing an autobiography,
a chronicle of the architect's
life.
According to Redstone, now
85, the show represents "all
my developments from the
late '20s until now. It is a
retrospective of things that
were a part of my life."
It is a life filled with
numerous professional
achievements, art and ar-
chitecture awards, civic ac-
tivities and published ar-
ticles. Among his
achievements are: the Robert
F. Hastings Award from the
Michigan Society of Ar-
chitects, gold medal of the
Michigan Society of Ar-
chitects, an appointement by
former Gov. William Milliken
to serve on the Special Com-
mission on Art in State
Buildings. He was named a
fellow, American Institute of
Architects; fellow, Engineer-
ing Society of Detroit; cor-
responding academician,
Royal Academy of Fine Arts of
San Fernando, Spain; and
honorary fellow, Royal
Academy of Fine Arts of the
Netherlands.
As a student at the Univer-
sity of Michigan, where he
earned a degree in architec-
ture, Redstone undertook
water color painting as a
course requirement. But, he
said he felt he had to express
himself "spontaneously,"
rather than under the con-
fines of the class, and turned
to water color because "it was
adaptable to that." Painting,
he explains, became a part of
his life — almost a compul-
sion — and began a weekend
hobby that has spanned 50
years and has gotten his
works displayed publicly and
in private collec-
tions. Redstone's early ex-
hibits were at J.L. Hudson's
and the Jewish Community
Center, and later at the Ar-
win Gallery, Interlochen Art
Academy, Manufacturer's Na-
tional Bank and at an office
building at 333 W. Fort St. in
Detroit. His works also were
accepted for exhibit by Water
Color USA, a national water
color show. Locally, Redstone's
paintings can be seen among
the collections of Edward and
Ruth Adler Schnee, Dr. Kim
and Mado Lie, Mrs. C. Allan
Harlan, Carol Wald, Herman

Louis Redstone

Tauchert, Mr. and Mrs. Ab-
bott Schlein, Mrs. Cis Maisel
and Mr. and Mrs. William
Bostick. -
A native of Russian Poland,
Redstone left his homeland
and went to pre-state Israel as
a chalutz. He followed his
brother to Detroit, went to U-
M and returned to Tel Aviv to
help design settlements. He
returned to Detroit in 1937
and founded his firm, Louis
G. Redstone and Associates.
In addition to painting, he
sculpts and designs brick and
concrete artwork for his
buildings.
In the Jewish community,
Redstone has been active on
behalf of the Technion, the
Jewish Community Center,
Jewish National Fund and
the Allied Jewish Campaign.
At the Cade Gallery,
Redstone will include a large
anodized aluminum painting,
created by etching the colors
onto the aluminum. The
pieces are mostly abstract
representational.
The show continues through
May 4.
