New Work. Luke DuBois. Todd Bryant.

New Work. Bryant & DuBois will be creating new work in the Lawrence Arts Center atrium space. This new work will be projected on the West face of the building and will be viewable from both interior & exterior.

R. Luke DuBois is a composer, artist, and performer who explores the temporal, verbal, and visual structures of cultural ephemera. Stemming from his investigations of “time-lapse phonography,” his work is a sonic and encyclopedic relative to time-lapse photography. Just as a long camera exposure fuses motion into a single image, his work reveals the average sonority, visual language, and vocabulary in music, film, text, or cultural information. An active visual and musical collaborator, DuBois is the co-author of Jitter, a software suite for the real-time manipulation of matrix data. DuBois’ work is held in numerous public and private collections, including the National Portrait Gallery, Washington, D.C.; the Weisman Art Museum, Minneapolis, MN; the 21C Museum, Louisville, KY; Progressive Corporate Collection, and the Chrysler Museum of Art in Virginia. Past exhibitions of his work have included the Smithsonian American Art Museum, Washington D.C.

 

The Quiet Hour

Sci-Fi (85min)
In a rural part of post-apocalyptic England occupied by alien invaders, a teenager fights against bandits to save her family farm.

Q&A with Producer J.T. O’Neill

 

Call Me Lucky

Barry Crimmins is pissed. His hellfire brand of comedy has rained verbal lightning bolts on American audiences and politicians for decades, yet you’ve probably never heard of him. But once you’ve experienced Bobcat Goldthwait’s brilliant character portrait of him and heard Crimmins’s secret, you will never forget him.

Gunyoung Kim

Ceramic artist Gunyoung Kim’s figure sculpture captures inner psychological aspects of humanity through surreal facial expression, subtle gestures and placement. Her recent work is about the connections and disconnections that happen in a relationship because of complex and changeable emotions between two people. “Nonverbal emotional cues such as eye contact, facial expression, body posture, and interpersonal distance; these things speak broadly about the tangled thinking and feeling that occurs when we interact with other people. Gunyoung is the 2014-15 Artist-in-Residence in ceramics

Q: where do you see (<o> <o>) your work going in the next five years?
A: Bio-tribalism, environmental lucidity, space children. More obvious trite motifs with better branding. Product placement, bipedal plot structures. Light sculptures. Radio telescopes. More awkward silences, less tropical islandses(sic).

Molly Murphy :: Short-Term PARKing (installation)

6 E. 9th Street
Lawrence, KS 66046
United States

Short Term PARKing is a temporary tiny park, greenspace where there is little, offering disruption in a high traffic downtown area. The tiny park will exist within the parameters of a 9×23’ short term metered parking space. The project title, Short Term PARKing, is a play off the many current discussions of parking options due to the recent and future construction projects, and the project itself is located in what the City of Lawrence designates as a short term parking metered space. While many discussions of where we will all leave our vehicles (there are parking lots on every block of downtown, on both parallel streets to Massachusetts, a four-level parking garage, street side parking on every north/south and east/west street and several long-term parking lots) there is also a lively and sometimes contentious discussion of an “arts corridor” along 9th Street, what that would look like and who has a say in what it looks like.

Members of the SOBD and interested new recruits should report to SOBDHQ at 803 1/2 Massachusetts during all operating hours of the Wonder Fair Gallery, and particularly Final Friday evening, to receive their mission and prepare themselves to seek “THE KEY”.

Ten Thousand Villages

835 Massachusetts St
Lawrence, Kansas 66044
United States

The String Doll Gang

Ten Thousand Villages will be Featuring Kambashi String Dolls.

OUR STRING DOLL ARTISTS are based in small villages in the mountains outside of Chiang Mai in northern Thailand. Crafting String Dolls is the main occupation for most of our artisans, which means a reliable income and improved living standards for their families and communities in their economically developing regions. When they are not making string dolls, many of our workers spend time taking care of their families and tending to their vegetable gardens for self-sufficiency. Some have other jobs such as sewing or working in shops and restaurants. We’d like to introduce you to 19 of our enthusiastic doll makers so that you can see the people who make what we like to call ‘ten dollar pieces of art.’

Fair Trade means that our artists receive adequate pay for their quality work.

Kamibashi has always practiced Fair Trade principles, which include working with artisans in developing countries (in our case Thailand) and paying fair prices for their amazing work. We have been a proud member of the Fair Trade Federation since April 2012.

Whatever Forever

SEEDCO STUDIOS
Located within the Warehouse Arts District at 720 E 9th Street #7 in Lawrence, KS, this space is ideal for making, showing and engaging in all aspects of art. With 19 artist studios, a music recording/rehearsal operation and collaborative space/gallery, the potential for creating at all scales is practically limitless. SeedCo is envisioned as a creative factory/laboratory with each of the resident artists bringing their singular artistic identity and prowess to expand and delve deeper into conception and production. At the heart of this project is a conscious intent to transform post-industrial space into a fluent medium all its own, specifically designed to transcend temporal and spatial values and condense them to create a heightened sensory experience. A multi-disciplinary approach emphasizing cooperation, collaboration, and community involvement and encompassing elements from fine art, sculpture, graphic design and production, music and recording, fashion, construction, digital media, and street art, the scope of this endeavor is far-reaching, but the flavor is distinctly home-grown. With its placement in the center of historic redevelopment, SeedCo Studios has the chance to act as a catalyst for creative growth, not only in Lawrence proper, but radiating outward into the surrounding regional area and beyond.

Split Lip Rayfield

In partnership with the Tour of Lawrence, the Lawrence Arts Center presents Split Lip Rayfield, a band that has carved out a unique genre of music with unmatched sound and instrumentation. Often described as a mix of bluegrass and country with an accent of metal, no other band delivers the experience of the homemade gas-tank bass played by Jeff Eaton, sets the mandolin strings on fire like Wayne Gottstine, or makes the banjo sing like Eric Mardis. Together they burn up speakers and stages alike. Split Lip Rayfield will be playing under the stars on 8th and Massachusetts.

Jason Kenning: Nevermind the Weather

“Nevermind the Weather” is an exhibition of paintings illustrating the ecology of our digital lives. This series takes inspiration from the way our culture consumes technology just as the environment is consumed by it.

The show is designed to ask: How does being more connected digitally translate into our physical lives? Does it benefit or harm the environment? How do seemingly insurmountable issues like climate change affect our decisions as individuals and society as a whole? Does technology alienate us, or redefine who we are and what we become?

Jason Kenning graduated from Creighton University in 2007 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts and co-major in philosophy. He has frequently joins those academic and intellectual interests into his drawings, paintings, and sculptures beginning with his BFA show “Pluralism” and continuing to this day. His work is driven by a love of all types of media, figurative and portrait studies, and the emotional and the narrative possibilities of visual art.

NEW PAINTINGS BY KYLE GODDARD

Born in 1982, Kyle Goddard was raised in the Greater Jackson Area of Mississippi. At
the age of 17, Kyle joined the Army Guard in which he served for nine years with one
deployment in Afghanistan. Though the military is not traditionally thought of as an
artistic environment, the overt use of repetition and organization would leave an
impression. Influenced by the early Modern artists and the New York Abstract
Expressionists, Kyle became interested in the science of composition. He also gains
inspiration through architecture, the forms of casual elements of everyday life, and the persistent geometry of which we are surrounded by. After receiving his B.F.A. in
Painting from the University of Southern Mississippi, Kyle has continued to advance his artistic theories. He received a State Fellowship in Mississippi for his paintings in 2013, was recently published in Studio Visit Magazine, and prominently works on expanding his portfolio.

 

“My paintings are a process of deconstruction, wherein I find satisfaction in working with concrete experiences rather than abstract ideas. In each composition there is a network of visual ingredients layered on top of one another and removed again until only the essential elements remain. My studio often becomes an architectural workspace laden with rulers, large straight edges, levels, and other various tools. I have worked hard to develop an understanding of formalism. Through studious research, experimentation, analytical processes, and sensitivity to the motives and actions of the world around us, we are able to create something honest. Honesty – not merely telling the truth, but the conscious attempt to self analyze our beliefs or actions and decide if they are both true to ourselves and their purpose.”

NEW DRAWINGS BY ROBERT MCNOWN

Richard Saba asks: I have known your work for 45 years. For most of that time the work was rigorously minimal, conceptual and committed to the idea of the image being a result of a specific and repetitious process. The past few years has seen an almost diametric reversal in your work which now appears to be the result of a spontaneous and kind of conscious free association. Could you describe for me how this change occurred and what it means to you?

At KU an an undergraduate there were two major influences running through the painting department: from the West coast there was the painterly figuration of Diebenkorn, and from the East coast the powerful presence of de Kooning. While I made a brief attempt at de Kooning-type gestural paintings I soon realized that kind of expressionism, although I loved looking at it, didn’t feel right for me. Shortly after that I became enamored by the hard edge color painters like Gene Davis. The systematic process of this kind of painting was right up my alley. I wanted a more rigorous and conceptual process. So I replaced the space with time- the time it obviously took me to execute the obsessive processes I had set up for myself. For many years I continued to work on pieces, predominantly drawings, which were driven by relentlessly logical compositional strategies along with painstakingly time consuming modes of execution. Throughout the years I worked my way through many different mediums, some rather unconventional. Whether pencil, crayons, rubber stamps, shoe polish, ink or collage among others, were all intrinsic to what the image would end up looking like. After coming across a huge pile of manila paper a local hardware store was tossing out, I started working with oil stix, which in a way brought me full circle back to the touch- critical painting of de Kooning. I slowly gravitated away from my hardcore conceptual process, and tried as I always had, to let the medium dictate the image. Back to more free form and spontaneous mark making. From there I began to add all the materials I had, at one time or another, used. In a way these drawings are an encyclopedia of the past 45 years of my art.

Richard Saba asks: I find myself consistently personifying your abstract images and seeing narratives unfold in them. Is this by design on your part?

For most of my career I have resisted interpretation of the work in any form. I limited myself to numerical images or the alphabet- systems which had no symbolic or metaphoric possibilities. While i still find it inconceivable to deliberately construct a narrative, I do find myself more interested in creating images that are ambiguous in terms of intent.

(Richard Saba is a talented painter and musician, a dear friend, and my harshest critic. He lives and works in Cherry Valley, New York.)

The Greenhouse Culture Art Show featuring Javy Ortiz

Javy Ortiz

Guided by the influences of music and vibrant artists, Javy Ortiz has put together

Javy Ortiz is a young artist who has been living and working in Lawrence for the past year. With a few art classes at Barton Community College under his belt, Javy is mostly self-taught. Javy is recently focusing on abstract paintings using bright and colorful acrylics, spray paint, stencils, and even holes. His paintings are filled with motion and an electric feel influenced by music, street art, and every day life. Apart from abstract works, Javy likes to create mixed media portraits of popular icons and occasional self-portraits. Influenced by the giant western-Kansas skies that he grew up watching in Macksville, Javy also likes to paint space scenes with spray. At only 21 years of age, Javy has created a wide variety of works, varying in subject and media.

Lynn Metzger:
Sixty years in Lawrence has given me a special feeling for our city. Some of the business structures have remained basically unchanged since I was young, while most have reincarnated many times. Some are new to the scene. The sameness and the change fascinate me.

Kimbo Jackson – Watercolors and More

The Brewhaus is happy to call Kimbo Jackson a friend of the shop since we have known her long before the idea North Lawrence’s coffee bar was ever imagined.

We are extremely excited about the chance to finally have some of Kimbo’s pieces to show for a brief period of time.

Kimbo’s Artist’s Statement is as follows:

I use watercolors and other water soluble stains (like coffee or beet root) to show the energy and nature of creatures that I’ve met or had a dream about. Since childhood I have been able to visualize the energy that encompasses living beings. It is my hope to share this on paper. –Kimbo

Matt Schappaugh

Matt Schappaugh is a local artist who has lived in Shawnee Kansas most of his life. Despite never seeing himself become a fine artist as a child, Matt discovered his passion for painting at the University of Kansas. His main inspirations for creating paintings stem from a desire to understand our existence. He strives to answer why people cause conflict with others and how conflict has shaped our world. Matt also seeks to better understand and reflect on the pain of mental illness in an attempt to express what many cannot.

This body of work is directly reflecting the confusion, negative thoughts, and pain suffered by those with mental illness. The art making process and chaotic application of paint is used to demonstrate the raw negative energy associated with mental illness. I often manifest figures and destroy them with a variety of aggressive techniques, in an attempt to conduct my energy and emotions directly into the painting. These works draw from personal experiences with depression and the stigma of having mental illness. This is an opportunity to express the pain, guilt, and confusion of what so many others also struggle with on a daily basis. Through this series, I hope to capture and honestly depict what it is like to deal with mental illness.

Jamelle Zablow-Maloney :: Bare Roots Jewelry

About The Artist
I began my work in jewelry when I was young, inspired by my parents who dabbled in gemstone hunting here in the Midwest and in jewelry making when I was in middle and high school. I began creating jewelry to my own interests and to match my wardrobe while in college when I was continuously unable to find pieces that matched my tastes and price range in retail stores.  I began making jewelry for retail when others became interested in my designs and encouraged me to do so. Jewelry making is a loved hobby of mine that I would love to have as a full time occupation, but continue to engage in between my work as a mother and teacher.

I see my jewelry as art and spend a lot of time with each piece ensuring that it is unique and hangs or sits right when it is worn. I enjoy working with raw materials like bone and stone, in order to give my pieces an organic, bohemian measure that matches my own style. I work hard to get materials from vendors and individuals that are honest about where and how they were obtained. I am adamant that the bones I use are from animals who died of natural causes and were not poached.

My favorite part about making jewelry for others is customizing it!!! I love surprising customers with my art!

She lives in East Lawrence with one child, two dogs and a very loud cat. “I’ve been creating art in secret my whole life, but never had the courage to call myself an “artist” until the sudden passing of my younger brother, Alan. Influenced by Modigliani, my newest set of figure paintings “Repose”, “Relax”, and “Recline” use bright orange and turquoise hues and incorporate images developed in my collage work,” says Shala Stevenson.

LETA STROM BACKDOOR PHOTOS During her travels with her husband Steve, Leta Strom utilized traditional and modern photographic techniques to create canvas pieces that capture the charm and distinctiveness of various locales in Italy, Austria, Germany, Switzerland, Czech Republic, and Slovakia. Her photo company, “Backdoor Photo,” takes its name from the approach that Steve and Leta chose in planning their European adventure. Rather than visiting a great many large cities, they chose to enter the countries through the ‘backdoor,’ wandering along winding cobblestone streets, becoming lost in the centuries-old charm of the villages and falling in step with the daily lives of locals. It is Leta’s hope that as you view her photos, you may become lost in the enchanting appeal of these European spots. Leta Strom has been involved in the Arts and working with young people for over twenty-five years. She taught high school drama and students with special needs. Leta resides in Lawrence, Kansas with her husband, Steve, and enjoys spending time with her daughters, Lauren and Kristin.

Peggy Mohr Though new to acrylic painting, Peggy has expressed her creativity in many ways since young. Music, dance and sewing were a major part of her growing up years, yet she always wanted to paint. She transferred to KU in 1975, graduated, married and raised her children in Lawrence, KS., where she currently resides with her husband, Larry. She worked for a local water color artist for many years yet never tried painting for herself. In 2008 she divinely came across a sketch she had done of her “brother’s mind” when she was in junior high, in Southern California. This was the kick she needed to pursue art for herself. After taking various classes at the art center she made the decision to focus on painting. For her, this had been a growing process, releasing a renewed love of the arts and gratefulness to God for His faithful “nudging”. http://peggymohr.com

Robert Lambert NYC Artist

“I work every day all day, this is my passion. The statement I make you will see on the wall.”

 

Robert Lambert has been painting since nineteen ninety when he left the world of fine art
photography to devote himself full time to his calling. During the last fifteen years he followed
his desire to seek out new expressions by working in New York, Paris and Amsterdam.
He preferred collectors who bought his work without having it explained. His work currently
resides in many significant international collections. In this manner, he has fully supported
himself and his pursuit of new expressions. In two thousand and three after a prolonged period
in Paris, a new series of oils, constructions and encaustics mixed media, evolved. Lambert
returned to New York City where he moved into his studio at the Chelsea Hotel. He continues
working on oils and mixed media paintings

“There is nothing that focuses you better than feeling isolated and being a stranger.”

 

Robert has been featured in numerous magazine publications including Rolling Stone, Harper’s Bazaar, and Art Price.

A limited edition of Robert’s Fine Art Digital Prints will be available for sale.

 

 

 

 

 

 

WONDER FAIR (803 1/2 Massachusetts St.)

www.wonderfair.com

(above the Burger Stand)

 

January 30 through March 22, Wonder Fair celebrates the Fine Art of Illustration with “In Between,” a new series of original drawings by KU professor and industry veteran Barry Fitzgerald.

“In Between,” texture and tone form a soft background to a series of vivid black ink drawings: lines curvaceous and sharp, vividly suggesting parables grown from the artist’s imagination…but left tantalizingly open to our interpretation.

Before In Between:

Students of our history will recall that Wonder Fair was built with the visual language of Illustration as its cornerstone, under the guidance of 2008 KU Illustration graduate and Wonder Founder Eric Dobbins.

Seven years later, Wonder Fair still champions all forms of art that are accessible but still demonstrate creative and conceptual rigor; promotes artists who possess a certain refreshing optimism that Art and Capital could fairly coexist (but who cannily recognize that they often do not).

And so, it is with great excitement that we exhibit “In Between”, a return, of sorts, to our earliest roots.

About the Artist:

Barry Fitzgerald is a multi-disciplinary illustrator, artist and visual communicator who loves the challenge of making images that engage intellectually, emotionally, and aesthetically. He enjoys problem solving and collaborating with others, and is available for commissions.

After a previous career as a graphic designer in Washington, DC, Fitzgerald earned an MFA in illustration at SUNY Buffalo where he studied under Hall of Fame illustrator Alan E. Cober. Upon graduation, he was hired by the Detroit New to work as a staff artist, where he was able to combine his love of graphic design, illustration, and visual communication. Currently, Fitzgerald is a Professor of Illustration at the University of Kansas. He has been teaching illustration, drawing, painting, and conceptual problem solving since 1993.

Barry has received over 100 national and international awards for his work, including American Illustration, the Society of Illustrators of NY, Society of Illustrators of LA, 3X3 Magazine, Creative Quarterly, and Print Magazine. He has also been included in ‘200 Best Illustrators Worldwide’ published by Lürzer’s Archive.

PHOENIX GALLERY UNDERGROUND (825 Massachusetts St.)

www.phoenixgalleryks.com

 

For January’s Final Friday Art Walk, we will feature artists Lisa Doffing and Elizabeth Rowley.

 

The images expressed in Lisa Doffing’s paintings emerge naturally from the process. She begins by turning up the music, moving to the rhythm, and applies alternating layers to several canvases at once. As the random and rhythmic marks are made, slowly but surely, sometimes over the course of several months, the beginnings of images catch her eye, and she builds on them. The process lends itself to the concept of experiencing complete freedom from expectations while listening to the layers and the process itself. The goals to experience the fluid nature of life, emotion, elements of the natural world—like water, notes, rhythm, beauty, freedom, love, and expression itself—are always fully met. The goal is relaxation and freedom from want. The goal of the paintings is to liberate the mind of the viewer as well on some level.

 

 

The landscape for Elizabeth Rowley is both focus and conduit for emotional expression. Working from small to large formats and from realism to abstraction, she creates spaces that are as much about “feeling” the landscape as they are about seeing it. Her landscapes are a collaboration between real landscape and her own emotional response to that landscape. She looks into the natural world, its outer surface and its inner light, its violence and its calm.

TEN THOUSAND VILLAGES (835 Massachusetts St.)

 

Lorel Ranney Hoffmann

In 2014, a dear friend had to euthanize her horse.  As she described what that entailed, my heart broke for her.  I decided I needed to do something to help ease her pain, but what?  Though I had not painted in years, I bought a canvas and got to work.  Studying the images of this sweet and gentle animal, my painting process became like a meditation on him, on all the work he did, on what her meant to her.  When I presented her the portrait of her beloved horse, Buddy, we were both very moved.  Art can say what words can’t.

I earned my degree in visual art education at the University of Kansas, in 1995, and my master’s degree in liberal arts from Baker University in 2006.  I have been fortunate to teach art in a public school setting for 18 years.  While I enjoyed any opportunity to be creative, often my own art making was postponed by the demands of my teaching and family.    However, since painting Buddy, my art has become more of a priority.  I continue to paint with acrylics in a realistic illustrative style, often favoring bold colorful images.  I am inspired by a wide variety of subject matter, from still life, to animal portraits, to landscapes.  My art doesn’t have one specific message to communicate.  I simply enjoy creating colorful, honest images for their own beautiful sake.

SEEDCO STUDIOS
Located within the Warehouse Arts District at 720 E 9th Street #7 in Lawrence, KS, this space is ideal for making, showing and engaging in all aspects of art. With 19 artist studios, a music recording operation and collaborative space/gallery, the potential for creating at all scales is practically limitless. SeedCo is envisioned as a creative factory/laboratory with each of the resident artists bringing their singular artistic identity and prowess to expand and delve deeper into conception and production. At the heart of this project is a conscious intent to transform the space into a fluent medium all its own, specifically designed to transcend temporal and spatial values and condense them to create a heightened sensory experience. A multi-disciplinary approach emphasizing cooperation,
collaboration, and community involvement and encompassing elements from fine art, sculpture, graphic design and production, music and recording, fashion, construction, digital media, and street art, the scope of this endeavor is far-reaching, but the flavor is distinctly home-grown. With its placement in the center of historic redevelopment, SeedCo Studios has the chance to act as a catalyst for creative growth, not only in Lawrence proper, but radiating outward into the surrounding regional area and beyond.

The Brewhaus, located at 624 N 2nd St in Lawrence, will be presenting the works of Seanna Hunter Ben between the hours of 6-9PM on Friday, 30 January 2015.

Statement:

Ya’ateeh Shi ei Seanna Hunter Ben Yinishye. Naanashtezhi Taachiinii nishli , Nakaii Dinee bashinishchiin. Tohstonii ei dashinalii do Todichiinii ei dashicheii. Akoteego Dine asdzaan nishli.

Hello everyone my name is Seanna Hunter Ben. I am the Red Running Into Water clan born for the Wondering People clan.  My maternal Grandmother’s clan is Big Water clan and my paternal Grandfather’s clan is Big Water. In that way I am a Navajo Woman.

Born in Chinle, Arizona on the Navajo Reservation, Seanna Hunter Ben graduated from the University of Kansas with her Bachelors of Fine Arts.

Through the abstract spray paint poster work she creates an environment that is influenced by graffiti gestural marks and a feel of the environment of her reservation. She created environments that feed to the general notion of growing up on a reservation and finding a sense of beauty still evolving out of such an environment and harsh reality through art, culture and a traditional upbringing.

She works with a very colorful saturated palate of spray paint, paint and art pens to create the environment.  Her work has been exhibited at the scholarship shows for the University of Kansas. She currently lives in Lawrence, Kansas.

Kristin Morland is an artist whose primary work is in hand sewn sequins and beads. But, beyond the medium, Morland’s work centers on light and color to tell a story, to connect patterns of behavior, or reflect on nature, sound, and experience. In her work, Kristin reflects a fascination with time, people, places, and objects. Her aim is to show the beauty in everyday experiences, and seemingly ordinary moments. Making use of contrast and color, as well as form and texture, Morland condenses emotion and experience to interface her language.www.kristinmorland.com
Morland’s work has been shown in local, and midwest galleries.  Kristin regularly participates in juried competitions, benefit auctions, Final Fridays and Artwalk.  Morland received her BFA from the University of Kansas, where she studied painting and weaving.  Kristin and her husband Timothy decided to move back to Lawrence after they were married to raise their family.  Morland’s home studio is open to the public by appointment, and Lawrence Final Friday events.
Heather Smith Jones is an artist working in painting, drawing, photography, and printmaking. She is the author of Water Paper Paint, Exploring Creativity with Watercolor and Mixed Media, published in 2011. Her work is represented by galleries in the Midwest and on the East coast, is part of the Sprint Corporation and Emprise Financial Corporation public collections, and many private collections around the world. For the past eleven years she has been an instructor in the Arts-Based Preschool at The Lawrence Arts Center and has taught children of all ages, students on the college level, and adult workshops. She earned an MFA from The University of Kansas in 2001, and a BFA in Painting from East Carolina University in Greenville, NC in 1996. Smith Jones grew up in the mountains of Tennessee and on the South Carolina coast, and currently lives in Lawrence with her husband and their four cats. www.heathersmithjones.com 
Emily Markoulatos combines acrylic paints with a wood burning technique to create images inspired by the Kansas landscape and people. Her more abstract canvases layer colors and texture that evoke the viewers’ imagination.
Raelean Finch of No-Law Knits hand knits a variety of wooly garments and accessories using luxurious fibers such as wool, alpaca, merino and organic cotton. She knits for babies, toddlers, kids and adults.

WONDER FAIR (803 1/2 Massachusetts St.)

(above the Burger Stand)

 

 

Instead of our white cube gallery this holiday season, at Wonder Fair you’ll find a glittering ice cavern filled with framed art prints (and other tiny treasures), hung salon-style around a centerpiece of cut paper stalactites. This year’s special “Prints on Ice” gallery installation is inspired by and designed in homage to the opening of the Downtown Lawrence ice rink, located adjacent to our friends at the Lawrence Public Library.

Installation begins November 25 and continues into early December, remaining on view through January 2015.

*A note on the permanence and seasonal swelling of ice caves*:

All year we specialize in cleverly-designed functional art and original prints, and carry a carefully curated selection of affordable handmade goods. This special season, however, Wonder Fair hosts an expanded group of local, national, and international artists, and a greater variety of their thoughtfully handmade prints, jewelry, home goods, stationery, and unique art objects.

Wishing you a happy hometown holiday season,

Meredith, Paul, Grace, Charlotte, and all of your friends at Wonder Fair

and, a special note of gratitude to designers Sam Jones (sivioco) and csillaghullo, for their open-source vector and background images that we’ve used in our header image. Note our attempt to put a copyright watermark thanking them in the corner of the image, and Facebook’s terrible image quality making it illegible.

 

 

 

 

 

 

PHOENIX GALLERY (825 Massachusetts St.)

www.phoenixgalleryks.com

For the November Final Friday Art Walk we will feature the artists of Illuminated Glass, a collaboration of three wonderful local glass artists: Ben Kappen, Brad Chun, and Courtney Skeeba. Elizabeth Rowley will display her paintings in the Vermont St. entrance and throughout the gallery.

Ben Kappen spent three years studying illustration at the University of Kansas before leaving to pursue a career in glass. In 2000 he began to learn how to furnace-work soft glass with Darren Davis at Rainbow Fired Glass in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Using what he had learned there with soft glass, he bought a small torch and began to ‘lampwork’ glass in early 2003. During this time Ben also began building his own equipment in order to open a soft glass studio in Lecompton, Kansas. Over a six month period he hand built an array of annealing ovens and reheating equipment, along with a 250 pound capacity hot-glass furnace. The furnace was first fired in June of 2004 and marked the grand opening of Illuminated Glass.

Brad Chun attended the Kansas City Art Institute in 1992, and was first introduced to art glass while visiting Eugene, Oregon in 1993. There he met Bob Snodgrass, a key figure in the modern lampworking studio movement that developed throughout the early 90’s. Brad moved to Eugene in 1996 to apprentice at the Snodgrass School of Glass. He developed his skills under Bob’s watchful eye, exploring the new glass world. With only a few colors available at the time, experimentation and discovery was a daily occurrence. Brad moved back to Lawrence, Kansas in 1998 where he was introduced to furnace worked soft glass at Free State Glass.

Courtney Skeeba studied glassblowing in 1992 at the Cleveland Institute of Art. There she developed her skills under Brent Lee Young before returning to Kansas. In 1996, Courtney attended the University of Kansas, where she earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Metalsmithing and Design. During this time, she kept her glass skills sharp while working at Free State Glass in Lawrence, Kansas. From 1993-2002, Courtney worked under Dick Rector and Jim Slough, helping to create the fine glass art Free State was known for.

Lawrence artist Elizabeth Rowley is drawn to capturing the essence of the landscape surrounding her with thick applications of oil paint with her palette knife. She is driven by her pure reverence for nature. Her new plein-air paintings pay homage to the Kansas landscape where she sits in the prairie and open-sky where she is inspired to paint.

 

 

 

 

 

PHOENIX GALLERY UNDERGROUND (825 Massachusetts St.)

www.phoenixgalleryks.com

 

Phoenix Underground welcomes Justin Marable and his exhibition “Skyward Shifts” for the November Final Friday Art Walk

Justin was raised in Robinson, a northeastern Kansas farm town. Throughout his life, he has learned and wandered within the boundaries of his Midwestern homeland, observing the social and physical landscape of the surrounding region. He finds inspiration in geography and history of the Midwest. Social and environmental issues drive much of his work as well as influences from family, nature, and everyday life. Justin graduated from the University of Kansas in 2005 with a B.F.A. in printmaking and currently resides in Topeka with his wife and daughters. He works full time at his home as an artist, husband, and father. In Kansas he has settled, grown his roots, and created a life grounded in art, family, and community.

From Justin: “The longer I learn and grow within the Midwest, the more I realize slight shifts across the landscape. Within my “Ingrained” body of work, I bring attention to a deeper and more ethereal view of Kansas landscape. I utilize various types of lumber that contain both rich and subtle wood grain.  Various woods such as hickory, oak, spalted maple, spalted sycamore, and ash were used to create most of these pieces. The imagery originally comes from photographs of my wanderings across the Midwest. These scenes are common observations ingrained mentally within my memory and physically within the properties of wood. Through this work, I present a depth of beauty to be discovered by those seeking and seeing more of Kansas than meets the eye. My overall hope is to provide an ongoing stream of original art that flows from roots of urban and rural Kansas to the surrounding local and global community.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

ESSENTIAL GOODS (825 Massachusetts St.)

Please join us Friday, November 29th at the opening reception for artist Kelsey Deviney for the November Final Friday Art Walk in Downtown Lawrence!

 

Kelsey Michele Deviney was raised in the country outside of Winchester, Kansas. Kelsey was raised on five acres of land along with her three younger siblings. She is currently a senior at the University of Kansas completing her BFA in Visual Art and Minor in Art History. She creates artwork from multiple mediums, varying from 2-D and 3-D. Her favorites include life drawing, metal work, and photography. Because of her upbringing out on the farm, surrounded by pasture and timber; all of her work has a constant theme of her relationship with nature and her view on society. Kelsey will graduate this December 14, 2014 and plans to stay in Lawrence to find a job in the arts.

Kelsey has added to her resume in the past year by interning with Van Go of Lawrence, KS. Van Go is a well-known grant funded art program that reaches out to at-risk children in the community. The program is focused around job training for high school students while providing social work assistance.

In February 2014, Kelsey began a new job through Kansas Work Study at Essential Goods on Massachusetts Street in downtown Lawrence. She was very excited to have a position in the arts that allowed her to interact with artists but also customers who support buying local artwork.

For her final semester at KU, Kelsey has been interning with the Lawrence Arts Centers Art-Based Preschool program. This program gives 3-4 year old children the chance to explore many different types of art from painting, theatre, and music. This internship has been excellent for Kelsey, as it applies directly to her future plans.

In the next five years Kelsey plans to move to a farm outside of Wichita, KS and start organic farming with her boyfriend, Ryan. She also plans to run an art-based daycare from the farm teaching kids the importance of health, fitness, and creativity. Kelsey plans to continue her personal art on the side while sharing with others the joy that art can bring.

Kelsey’s work will be up through December 2014.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

TEN THOUSAND VILLAGES (835 Massachusetts St.)

 

Angela Lowe

 

Angela Lowe has had an “artist’s eye” from childhood capturing candid expressions of people and compositions of natural beauty.  “Growing up in colorful Colorado, natural beauty was on full array throughout the seasons,” Angela states.  Her curious creative perspective persisted and earned her a Bachelor of Arts degree.  “My life’s calling has been manifested in various ministry settings, yet I have always been able to express myself in a creative way using my art education background.  My passion for creativity is expressed in my gardening, home interior designs, crafts and photography.  It is my therapy especially after a long day or night at LMH where I am the Coordinator of Spiritual Care / Staff Chaplain.”  Her photography exhibit will feature some of her favorite prints, cards and bookmarks.  “It has an international theme reflecting candid photos from recent pilgrimages to Myanmar and Bolivia.  Expressions of warmth and love are conveyed in any language,” Angela passionately states.  Her work is reasonably priced because she wants others to have the opportunity to enjoy some of her “favorite things” from across the street, throughout our nation and around the world. Angela is on the Board of Directors for Ten Thousand Villages, Lawrence and a portion of the proceeds from the sale of her work will be donated to Ten Thousand Villages, Lawrence. Angela will be sharing the exhibit space with a promising photographer, Marie Boncella, a tenth grader at Lawrence Free State High School.

THE BOURGEOIS PIG (6 E. 9th St.)

 

Rachel Adelia Forrest

Lost and Found

The landscape is a surreal entity, and we only know as much as we sense. My paintings are about exploration and discovery. As I explore nature, I have close to no desire to paint what is easily found. While a beautiful Kansas sunset seen from my back porch is extremely provoking (and I will often photograph it with my cell phone), what inspires me are sights that are more difficult to find, or something that I did not purposefully look for. As an example, Perry Lake I is a composition that I found off the beaten path. After a drive out of Lawrence and through the dirt roads that surround Perry Lake, I happened upon a small lagoon. It was quite isolated, and I travelled on foot along the rocky beach. My intuition took me to this spot; it is often what I choose to follow. The movement of the water against the rocks, with a distant strip of land was very striking to me. In nature, I find themes of life and death, tranquility, harmony, and memory. Many difficulties arise in the physical journeying process, but suffering for my work has been rewarding to date.

Rachel grew up in Edmond, Oklahoma and graduated in May 2014 from the University of Kansas with a BFA in painting, a BFA in Art History, and a minor in French. She also studied at the Marchutz School of Art in Aix-en-Provence, France. Rachel regularly exhibits her work locally and currently has work at the Buttonwood Art Space and the 2016 Main Gallery in Kansas City, Missouri. She has exhibited at the Leedy-Voulkos Art Center, several spaces in Oklahoma City, and has a painting in the Heritage Museum at the Homestead National Monument in Beatrice, Nebraska.

SEEDCO STUDIOS– Located within the Warehouse Arts District at 720 E 9th Street #2 in Lawrence, KS, this space is ideal for making, showing and engaging in all aspects of art. With 19 artist studios, a music recording operation and collaborative space/gallery, the potential for creating at all scales is practically limitless. SeedCo is envisioned as a creative factory/laboratory with each of the resident artists bringing their singular artistic identity and prowess to expand and delve deeper into conception and production.

At the heart of this project is a conscious intent to transform post-industrial space into a fluent medium all its own, specifically designed to transcend temporal and spatial values and condense them to create a heightened sensory experience. A multi-disciplinary approach emphasizing cooperation, collaboration, and community involvement and encompassing elements from fine art, sculpture, graphic design and production, music and recording, fashion, construction, digital media, and street art, the scope of this endeavor is far-reaching, but the flavor is distinctly home-grown. With its placement in the center of historic redevelopment, SeedCo Studios has the chance to act as a catalyst for creative growth, not only in Lawrence proper, but radiating outward into the surrounding regional area and beyond.

FINAL FRIDAY EVENTS IN NORTH LAWRENCE

 

THE BREWHAUS (624 N. 2nd Street)

 

Beth Ann Pine

Beth has been creating original art since she could hold a crayon. Her previous paintings, done in acrylic on canvas, celebrate the female form.  She focused heavily on editing her work, eliminating lines and shadows.  She explores what could be removed from her work, while still allowing the painting to communicate to the viewer.  The idea is that by editing ourselves, we allow the most important things to come to the foreground both in art and in life.

 

Her current work features watercolors that serve to express feminine energy.  Her work has been driven by creating flowing lines and color but done in a specific amount of time.  Deadline driven, her watercolors are an exploration of what one can accomplish in a small amount of time, day-by-day.  Once the allotted time is up, the work is considered complete.

 

 

Please, join Beth at The Brewhaus this Final Friday, November 28, 2014. (You may find Black Friday wonderfulness as well!  Keep an eye out on FaceBook!)

 

The Brewhaus is North Lawrence’s own coffee-shop located at 624 N 2nd Street, Lawrence, Kansas, next to Iwig’s Dairy.  Her work will then be displayed through-out the month of December and perhaps into January.

Souvenir’s From The Future.  A Survey of Contemporary Ceramics.  Curated by Ben Ahlvers

This group exhibition explores juxtapositions whether they be visual or conceptual as well as the connections that can be formed in the context of a group exhibition. The works included in this exhibit looks to the future in order to acknowledge the past. They make connections and blur definitions of ceramic materials, processes. The exhibit delectably and mysteriously explores tensions between nature and the synthetic, the hand and the machine, history and the future. This exhibit brings together nearly 40 artists working in North America, each working with ceramic material and processes.

 

Solo Show by Russell Wrankle.  Russell is an artist and a teacher currently living in Southern Utah.  His ceramic sculptures play on his personal narrative, utilizing a variety of animal figures.  Wrankle says that, like Aesop’s Fables, the animal is an apt vehicle to express human truths.

 

The Tea Project

Aaron Hughes, Amber Ginsburg

Artist Aaron Hughes began the Tea Project as a response to his military deployment to Iraq and Kuwait in 2003 and his return trip in 2009 as a peace delegate to the First International Labor Conference in Erbil, Iraq. As an artist, teacher, and activist, he works to create projects and scenarios in which diverse groups of people can collectively and personally address difficult topics and create meaning out of trauma. Amber Ginsburg is an artist, editor, writer and lecturer at the University of Chicago. Together with collaborators, Amber creates site-generated projects and social sculpture that insert historical scenarios into present day situations. Her work is strongly influenced by her background in craft and ceramics.  This installation will continue to evolve through November 8.

Halloween night, Kansas City artists Dustin Williams and Jon Linn unveil their third installment of the ongoing Ghost Town series. Each October at Wonder Fair, nondescript hallways and dusty back rooms are inexplicably transformed into suspiciously spooky new businesses. In the wake of 2012’s Cemetery Cinema, the haunted video rental store, and 2013’s Dead End Diner (see our grave reviews on Yelp), comes a new installation and a new business/membership card to add to your wallet.

http://frankandsteininc.net/

Please note that our official opening hours will begin at 7pm and end at 11pm to allow downtown tick-or-treating families to dissipate, and allow guests maximum access to our haunted installation in the Halloween evening hours. (Kids welcome, but Wonder Fair will not participate in handing out sidewalk candy; families must brave the stairs to receive their tricks and treats at Wonder Fair.)

PHOENIX GALLERY UNDERGROUND (825 Massachusetts St.)

www.phoenixgalleryks.com

 

Phoenix Underground will feature artists Ardys Ramberg and Stephanie Freeman for October’s Final Friday Art Walk.

 

Stephanie Freeman has been painting on and off for forty years. Most recently, she began painting steadily as a means of restructuring her life and healing her grief after losing her sister to cancer. Even though it was very painful to work during this period of mourning, she began painting regularly, embracing the personal artistic growth that occurred. At first she worked with oil paint, producing large, brightly colored abstract works. Gradually, she began experimenting with burning raw canvas. Initially Stephanie was terrified of the fire, but she learned to embrace its restorative properties. She loved the idea of nearly destroying something and, through creativity, resurrecting it. Her current body of work is inspired by the forms brought about by the controlled burning of canvas fragments, which are often incorporated as collage elements in the finished works. She has been reinventing herself since her sister’s death. Like the phoenix rising from the ashes, these paintings are part of her rebirth.

 

Rusty metal pitted by time, weather, and soil–that is what Ardys Ramberg’s show is about. Oiled, to stop the aging process, the textures formed speak to her heart. Ardys’ mentor, George Kaull, disdained the old metal she choose to work with, and he was right. It’s brittle and difficult to weld smoothly, but oh so exciting to look at if you are of her ilk. “Odysseus Spots Circe” is a piece Ardys intended to make years ago. She is so glad it has come into existence. It gave her another chance to visit with Jon Blumb, too! The enclosure in the middle of the room will knock your socks off if you get to see it after several inches of gently fallen snow. Clouds, flying birds, and trees viewed through its “roof” seem ever more magical as you sip tea inside it with a friend. And how delightful it is to construct such things! Ardys sang a song inside it to send it on its way to a new home.

TEN THOUSAND VILLAGES (835 Massachusetts St.)

 

Sophia Compton: Silk artist

Much of my work is about natural elements combined with collage, a synthesis of color and texture which is a way of adding beauty and excitement to art, and therefore, to life. Creating silk collage is also a way of making sense of a complex and uncertain world. My work has evolved as a form of expressive mosaics to textile pieces, a combination of still life and symbolic elements of life. Using different materials and the placement of the materials together to create a unique effect is always magical and fascinating process.

A self-taught textile artist, it is silk painting that makes my heart sing. Although I have worked in a variety of media in the S.F. Bay area the past 30 years, my focus is wearable art. I was a weaver for many years, and at one time, raised sheep to shear for wool I spun before weaving. A few years ago I transferred my love of watercolor to silk, which is the only fabric that lends itself to watercolor effects. I recently have started quilting silk.

A fairly new Lawrencian, I have been a member of the Lawrence Art Guild for three years, during which time I have been a participant in the Guild shows, and have also shown my work through Lawrence Creates, the Library, the Merc, Phoenix, and  several other  Lawrence businesses. I teach workshops on silk-painting and other fiber arts through Makerspace and other venues in Lawrence.

THE BOURGEOIS PIG (6 E. 9th St.)

 

At Dusk and Dawn :: New Works on the Kansas Landscape by Molly Murphy

 

From the Artist:

This series of landscapes borders on the abstract, focused on the light and dew in the air during the Kansas autumn months. I grew up on the outskirts of Lawrence, between Baldwin and Vinland, KS amidst rolling fields, small creeks and large swaths of trees outlining the landscape. I still spend a great deal of time outside of Lawrence exploring these areas, and still find newness in the landscape that is so familiar to me. I attempt to capture the moments driving by or walking through these areas of light dripping through shadows, hazy mists engulfing the sightline, fields of fire and never ending skies that break from grey to full brilliance. Often the land itself has such surreal depth, I feel I’m squinting or even sleeping inside it.

 

About the Artist:

Molly Murphy lives in Lawrence, KS with studios in the Kansas City Crossroads and Lawrence, KS. She currently serves as co-curator of Cider Gallery Fine Arts with her studio partner, Clare Doveton, as well as serving on the Board of Directors of the Lawrence Arts Center and Coordinator of Final Fridays for the City of Lawrence.

Artifacts on loan from the Spencer Museum of Art are used to show how the Mexican holiday Day of the Dead gives voice to political, cultural and social concerns. Artifacts drawn from the museum’s collection illustrate how residents have expressed their political views. By exploring how citizens in the past expressed their concerns, La Catrina Speaks encourages Lawrencians to voice their beliefs on today’s important issues.

JACK COLLINS AND CHERYL TOH

 

Please join us on Halloween night, Friday, October 31st for our Final Friday reception for Jack Collins and Cheryl Toh. In this two-person show, connections are made both with the artists’ processes and visual results of their work. While Jack Collins assembled this series of paintings with wood, screws, and glue, Cheryl Toh assembled her work with a sewing machine, allowing the lines of thread to generate shapes. The resulting images from both artists are striking yet subtle nuances of color.

Cheryl Toh is a mixed media artist working primarily in drawing and

painting. Her work depicts an ongoing observation of the varying levels of communication within macro & micro communities. Toh’s work then moves forward within a set of parameters – distilling, interpreting and transforming the observations she has accumulated through the use of organic symbology.

Originally from Connecticut, Toh received a Bachelor of Arts from Elms College in Massachusetts with additional training at Penland School of Craft, Penland, NC; Gage Academy and Pratt Fine Art Center both in Seattle, WA. She was awarded residencies at Escape to Create in Seaside FL and with the Charlotte Street Urban Culture Project, KCMO; she was also ArtsKC Inspiration Grant recipient. Toh regularly shows throughout the U.S. and her work is found in public, corporate and private collections.

 

Kansas City artist Jack Collins is a mixed media painter. He works with the idea that wood planes on the canvas and negative space around these objects are in the process of entering and exiting the two dimensional plane of the composition. Collins works with the interactions of positive and negative space, or figure and ground, creating an illusionistic space. For the last year and a half, Collins has incorporated wood into his paintings, which offers him new challenges in his progression from using paper. Collins received an MFA in painting from the University of Kansas in 1990, and has been exhibiting in Lawrence and Kansas City for several years. He is the recipient of two grants from the Kansas Arts Commission, as well as the Faculty Growth and Enrichment Grant from Baker University.

SEEDCO STUDIOS– Located within the Warehouse Arts District at 720 E 9th Street #2 in Lawrence, KS, this space is ideal for making, showing and engaging in all aspects of art. With 19 artist studios, a music recording operation and collaborative space/gallery, the potential for creating at all scales is practically limitless. SeedCo is envisioned as a creative factory/laboratory with each of the resident artists bringing their singular artistic identity and prowess to expand and delve deeper into conception and production.

At the heart of this project is a conscious intent to transform post-industrial space into a fluent medium all its own, specifically designed to transcend temporal and spatial values and condense them to create a heightened sensory experience. A multi-disciplinary approach emphasizing cooperation, collaboration, and community involvement and encompassing elements from fine art, sculpture, graphic design and production, music and recording, fashion, construction, digital media, and street art, the scope of this endeavor is far-reaching, but the flavor is distinctly home-grown. With its placement in the center of historic redevelopment, SeedCo Studios has the chance to act as a catalyst for creative growth, not only in Lawrence proper, but radiating outward into the surrounding regional area and beyond.
