tion with other painting tools. However, this does not hold true for those who choose to extricate the palette knife from it’s lonely, singular existence and aggrandize it’s function as a painting tool.

Palette Knife Cutting Into Art Texture, composition; these are some of the quantitative personality traits that are attributed to paintings as they are being created by their masters. Artists painting on canvas have always sought to recreate some likened representation of the visual world we inhabit. Whether realism or abstract, this representation touches on our inner appreciation of what we see and more importantly what we feel in the “real world”. Perhaps it is this instinctual feeling of the textural reality we inhabit that draw many artists and patrons alike to those paintings on canvas that provide deep texture and loose forms. A perfect albeit nonexclusive example of textural creation and loose forms are works that are created using a palette knife. For those new to art or just blissfully non-informed a palette knife is a thin steel blade with a handle that was and still is used primarily for mixing colors on a palette for later applica-

The finished work, with its unique texture, mixed colors, and loose representational form lends itself to the dissimilar creational processes that other tools, such as the brush, cannot provide. For artists such as Janine Medlin the palette knife affords her a tool that “is decisive and fresh in a way that I’ve not found in the stroke of a brush”. Depending on the application of the knife, whether thick or thin, the artist can create differing stories using the interaction of colors and textures in a way that often creates unintended, surprised results. “Oil paints do some of their work well after the paint is put down. This is fun for me as the artist since I will often be surprised at the color

9 that emerges during the days and weeks that the paint dries. It almost feels like the piece has its own story to tell, partially independent of what I intended” says Janine Medlin. Maureen Engle uses a palette knife to enhance the loose color structure of her paintings. “I experimented with mixing colors directly on the canvas with the knife, layering over wet and dry paint and using both the flat surfaces and the edges of the knife to create texture and line work... although with experience I can control the paint quite well, I love the unexpected effects I get with knife work” says Engle. Engle continues, “I’m passionate about color, movement and energy and a palette knife helps me to achieve this in my work. A palette knife makes it difficult to be too tight and therefore, helps me to focus on what is important”. This “loose” effect has been echoed by many artists who use palette knives and can be observed in the minute, loose configurations that arrange the differing lines within a piece.

Janine Medlin

Timeless, 48” x 48” Janine’s impressionist landscapes in oil-on-wood or canvas reflect the wildness and beauty she sees in nature. Texture from palette knife and brush in a calming but rich color scheme are found in her distant horizon and her Aspen groves pieces. More on Instagram, @janinemedlinfineart


Whether the palette knife offers artists an all-in-one tool for “smearing, application of thick and thin paint, straight lines, or blending” as described by Charlotte-based artist Adrian Redmond, or a “less structured more representational result”, as stated by artist Christine Tavel, the ability to add texture, mix colors over canvas, and paint with a loose form allows many artists the ability to create unique representational forms which allows the viewer to observe the creation process in the finished product.

Fine Southern Clay Reimagined Mediums Our talk with Mark Dunley of Eno Gallery In first planning this editorial we sought to introduce readers to a very unique ceramic/clay invitational at Eno Gallery in Hillsborugh, NC. However during our Q&A with owner Mark Dunley we came across a fascinating, substantive conversation about how ceramic crafts are viewed in conjunction with fine arts. Enjoy! Why an invitational? We sought to re-define the potter as an artist, and illustrate how ceramics have been redefined as a vehicle for artistic expression. The Fine Southern Clay exhibition was conceived to showcase the work of some of the finest contemporary clay artists in the South. Artists represented have been recognized both locally and nationally. Why ceramics? Contemporary ceramics are pushing the boundaries between functional and sculptural work. There is currently unprecedented experimentation not only with forms, colors, and glazes, but also with the role of clay as an artistic and sculptural medium. Bernard Leach, considered the ‘father of British Studio pottery’ said “Very few people in this country think of the making of pottery as an art.” What’s your statment with this show? We seek to throw out the old debates about the relative values of craft vs fine art. An accomplished ceramist’s work is

as important as an oil painting. The point is to understand each tradition. There is a broad distinction between fine arts (unique objects created purely for their visual or aesthetic appeal) and crafts (objects which, no matter how visually decorative are usually functional.). Thus “fine art pottery” (or ceramics) describes artistic works, while the term “pottery” tends to be reserved for pots, dishes and other functional items. However, we want to bring a realization that these definitions are not absolute: some ceramic items can be both beautiful works of art and still have a function. This exhibition allows viewers to understand and appreciate each tradition. The Fine Southern Clay exhibition seeks to redefine clay as a vehicle for artistic expression. In a world of mass produced objects, what these artists create is of such importance that whatever tag you give it is very special Will there be a next year? We will continue ‘Fine Southern Clay’ as a yearly exhibition. This year 21 notable ceramists exhibited work. There were a number of notable ceramists that were unable to exhibit this year due to other commitments. The next exhibition promises to bring an even wider variety of compelling new work. ________________________________ Southern Fine Clay will be on view at Eno Gallery through January 15, 2016.

Profiles in Art Mary Kinzel Means & Patrick Taylor Taylor Kinzel Gallery Gallery owners, Mary Kinzel Means and Patrick Taylor, established their partnership in Atlanta as successful art consultants in 1993. Since then, they have immersed themselves in the southern art market through extensive experience at established galleries and museums. In 2003, they combined their shared passion and knowledge for the arts with the opening of Taylor Kinzel Gallery in charming Historic Roswell just outside Atlanta.

How did Taylor Kinzel come to be? Patrick and I became great friends working together at an Atlanta gallery in 1993. We worked really well together and had a shared dream to own and operate our own gallery. We used to scout around the historic area of Roswell just waiting for something to become available... when it did, we jumped on it! And in 2003 opened Taylor Kinzel Gallery. What is your gallery’s direction? Our vision, from the start, was to represent established Southern artists and carry only contemporary original works. It’s been a successful and satisfying plan, one we plan to stay on!

into our overall gallery aesthetic? and c) Do we LOVE it? Do you collect art? Absolutely! Working in galleries for as long as we have, you can’t help but have a pretty fantastic collection of work. And, while our collections are varied, we are partial to collecting artists we have a close personal connection to and therefore collect a lot of our own artists. What’s next for Taylor Kinzel? Our goal is to always stay true to our vision... to create and cultivate a prosperous positive experience for ourselves, our artists, and our clients. We are in the “art world”, an exciting creative world of the great unknown and infinite possibility! _________________________________

How do you select your artists? When we started out, the artists we chose to represent were those whose work we were familiar with, soon however, with the incredible number of artist submissions we were receiving, we found it helpful to facilitate our decision on the following criteria: a) Is it original work? b) Does it fit

Mary Kinzel Means and Patrick Taylor has owned and operated Taylor Kinzel Gallery since 2003. Taylor Kinzel Gallery ~ A Southern Original. Taylor Kinzel Gallery offers a varied collection of original works by nationally renowned southern artists.

Kai Lin Art Thru December

Elder Gallery’s contemporary aesthetic continues with its exhibition of new paintings by New York artist, Ralph Turturro. Known for his contemporary tenebroso style, he infuses primitive scrawls to create depth and texture. The color, texts, and inadvertent images that grow out of his process of painting are tools he uses to discover a world he describes as “eternally, cosmically, and universally real.” He sees this process as similar to that of “an archeologist discovering found objects that send one reeling back and forth through time.” “Painting is something that continues to fill me with wonder and awe. The color, textures, texts, and inadvertent images that grow out of my process of painting become detached clues of self-discovery; visual tools to discover this world beyond.” Turturro is a graduate of the University of Wisconsin and holds an MFA from Pratt Institute. He has done Post Graduate work at Queens and Brooklyn College in New York.

A solo exhibition of new works by Zen Buddhist Sensei Elliston Roshi in the main gallery and new works by contemporary artist Lela Brunet in the Grey Gallery. A Sensei (teacher) who created the Soto Zen Center, Elliston Roshi takes a Zen Buddhist approach to creating his works. With command of his materials, he explores emotion and mysticism through the organic behavior of sumi ink on gesso panels and glass surfaces. Roshi allows the abstracted image to emerge, capturing beauty at its raw essence. Lela Brunet draws inspiration from ancient stories of female deities and creatures from Egyptian, Greek, and Japanese mythology. In this new series, she explores sacred female figures and forms through a variety of techniques using graphite, ink, acrylic, tissue bleed, markers, and coffee stain. Through finely detailed, intricate lines, Brunet’s color combinations and geometric patterning creates an obsessively patterned and dynamic work of art.

Gallery creates quite the kaleidoscope. Local Color Gallery is open year-round from Thursday Saturday from 11:30 -4:30pm and on and First Fridays from 6 -10pm and by appointment. Local Color Gallery, established in 2002, is an artist Co-Op of twelve women that is constantly evolving and developing and calls 311 Gallery home. It is unique in the Raleigh’s Arts Scene not only because it consists of only women, but because it provides artists, whether part or full-time an opportunity to keep a toe in Raleigh’s Arts Scene while holding down that “day job” or raising that “family”. Its membership is diverse. Some artists work with clay, others with glass or cloth and some with pigments. They explore possibilities, wander in and around form and function, dive into value and tone, dance with presentation and pine for those customers who see and appreciate what it’s artists have accomplished. Each member of Local Color brings to our shared space her own distinctive interpretation of the visual world – they share hints on marketing and display and offer encouragement and critique.

LYNN BOGGESS, New Landscape Painting. “The type of impasto painting that I do is ideally suited to capturing water’s glassy surface, rhythmic movement, reflective illusions, and mysterious transparencies. Warmer temperatures allow me to set my easel closer to the edge, actually in it. Painting in winter, the freezing and thawing cycles, from liquid to solid to gas, are endlessly fascinating.” THRU Dec. 31st.

Lynn Boggess, 1 October 2015, oil on canvas, 46” x 40”

Y’alltide “One of the great things about the traditions of holiday gift giving is that they allow us to take the time to focus on our friends and family, to focus on what makes them special and what makes them special to us. Finding that special gift that will light up the face of a friend or family member is itself one of life’s greatest gifts that we can give to ourselves.” Allen Clapp, artist and owner of 311 Gallery.

Cheryl McCardle, Embracing Chaos

Elaborate feasting, the burning of candles, and the giving of gifts, many of our holiday traditions, harken back to Saturnalia, a Roman feast celebrated during the winter solstice; a time of darkness, cold and hunger; a time when it’s easy to slip into depression. It is also a time when the harvest is done and the fields fallow; when people have time to devote to their religious life and to spend time together. Today, with the flick of a switch, much of the solstice darkness is conquered but the heaviness remains for many. What better way is there to face the shortest day of the year than a celebration with family and friends. Looking back at the origins of mid-winter festivities, we learn that gift giving was added as a magical custom. The giving of gifts in our culture is no longer magical. It has become a season of wants, a gift-giving bonanza; creating stress and the depression it was meant to ease. The shopping season reaches from mid October through late December, extending the period of stress and depression to nearly a quarter of the year! Turn back to the magic.

Allen Clapp, Caroling at Christmas

Remember that the purpose of a gift is

Amy Beshgetoorian, Nicotiana Tabacum

to show love. “I hate shopping! It’s so stressful staring at stacks of sweaters, racks of neckties, and display after display of novelty gifts knowing that most will be exchanged or broken in short order. My Aunt Mary had a knack for finding just the right gift; everything had a story. Twenty years after her death, her gifts still bring back fond memories. I want to give gifts like that. I want to give a gift that will last.” Susan Jones, artist with Tipping Paint Gallery

work to sustain the gift of art that is so vital to civilization. The artists of 311 Gallery and Tipping Paint Gallery invite you to stop in and browse our collection of one-of-a-kind gifts so that you can give a gift that lasts. “Without art, the crudeness of reality would make the world unbearable.” George Bernard Shaw

Art is a gift that lasts. It will be around a long time. “Art will have a lasting impact as it continues to speak to the viewer and to nourish their soul.” Amy Beshgetoorian, artist with Tipping Paint Gallery Art is permanent. It will be enjoyed for a long time; that’s not true of most gifts. Art reaches beyond, “it becomes loved not only because of its beauty and its origin but because it was cherished by someone we love.” Cheryl McCardle, artist, 311 Gallery As we move toward more meaningful gift giving, don’t forget to add those organizations that support artists and museums to your list of charities. These organizations Susan K. Jones, Rings
