Presenting the 2024 Ernie Barnes wall calendar, a timeless tribute to a master artist, affectionately known as "Big Rembrandt" by his teammates and fans who emerged from humble beginnings in Durham, NC to become one of the most acclaimed artists of his generation.

Ernie Barnes was the first professional athlete to become an internationally acclaimed artist and was truly revolutionary in his field. His unique style of elongation, energy, and movement brought life to his artwork. His subjects, often inspired by his Southern roots and childhood memories, included pool halls, barbershops, porch ladies, churches, street singers, and sandlot games. His most famous painting, 'Sugar Shack,' seen on Marvin Gaye's album cover and in the credits of 'Good Times' was inspired by a dance at a juke joint in his hometown of Durham, NC.

Our 2024 calendar features major holidays and a selection of Barnes' remarkable artwork, including 'Tunesmith', 'Lift Every Voice', 'The Bassist', 'Ninety-Nine A'Hundred', 'Anniversary', 'Pause Cafe', 'Sugar Shack', 'The Bench', 'A Day on the Backstretch', 'Porch Ladies', 'In the Moment', and 'A Joyful Noises'. Each month, you'll find a dedicated page providing background information on the artist and/or detailed insights into the inspiration behind the featured artwork.

This 16-month wall calendar features a four-month 2023 planning spread on one page, along with 12 individual calendar pages for 2024. The fold-over cover design of this calendar not only contributes to its eco-friendliness but also eliminates the requirement for plastic packaging. It is printed on FSC-certified paper using soy-based ink.

Measures 12x12 inches when closed and 12x24 inches when open and is printed on high-quality paper with full-color pages throughout. Ideal for homes, offices, or churches, it makes a perfect gift that blends practicality with artistic elegance.
Immerse yourself in the vibrant world of Ernie Barnes with this 2024 calendar, an essential addition to your collection or a thoughtful gift for art enthusiasts. Celebrate the life, legacy, and timeless talent of this remarkable artist every day of the year.

Ernie Barnes

Ernest “Ernie” Eugene Barnes, Jr. (July 15, 1938 – April 27, 2009) was an African-American painter, well known for his unique style of elongation and movement. He was also a professional football player, actor and author. Ernie Barnes' involvement with art began at an early age, like most gifted adult artists. However, when he reached high school his creative endeavors were temporarily detoured in his determination to become a successful athlete. In part this was a response to the demands of peer pressure which can be so strong at that age. He graduated from his high school a hero and star football player, and with 26 full athletic scholarships to choose from. He chose North Carolina Central University and a major in art. After college he continued in an illustrious professional athletic career, but never let his love for football overshadow his love for art. Football gave him an enormous satisfaction of achievement, of being able to do something extremely difficult, and do it well. Art, however, allowed him the privilege to interpret for the public his concepts of the relationship between art and life.
