He taught Art in California and Minnesota and then opened a custom jewelry shop turning client’s ideas and designs into reality using whatever process was appropriate, whether that be lost wax, fabrication, handwrought or other. He is now devoting all his time to his artwork. His work is an exploration of what he calls “Sensual Feminine” the world is full of powerful, sensual images and he tries to make the viewer sense the rich, full sensual images in his paintings and sculptures. The images are far more than the realistic portrayal of a flower, figure, or object. As to his painting work, he observes the world around him, selectively choosing objects that provide him with a powerful

Studio Reflections on a Salt and Pepper Set, 2016, oil on canvas, 24” x 36”

Shown are two paintings in the traveling show. Artist Carol Creel (“MARBLES”) from Louisiana collects handmade marbles which she combines with her grandmother’s cut glass to create paintings. “The bold colors of the marbles follow the sleek lines of the cut glass giving the illusion of liquid color. This liquid color creates visual appeal.” Artist Mike Kowalski (“OLD WORLD”) from Washington found his subject while strolling through and antique emporium. “This stall with mid morning light streaming in on the collection of old globes was mesmerizing. I wanted to capture a sense of recalling travel in a less modern world, or of some adventure long dreamed about.”

National Watercolor Society Traveling Exhibit October 1 - 30, 2016 Southern Arts Society, Inc. Kings Mountain, NC Southern Arts Society (SASi) in Kings Mountain, NC first hosted the National Watercolor Society (NWS) Traveling Exhibit in 2013 and is excited to see it return to their galleries October 1 through 30, 2016.

LA VIE BOHÉME Ken Van Sickle SOCO Gallery, Charlotte, NC Charlotte, North Carolina – SOCO Gallery is thrilled to present LA VIE BOHÈME, a retrospective exhibition with New Yorkbased photographer, Ken Van Sickle. This will be the artist’s first exhibition at SOCO Gallery located at 421 Providence Road in Charlotte, North Carolina. An opening reception will be held on Wednesday, September 7 from 6 – 8pm, followed by an artist talk on Saturday, September 10 beginning at 10:30am. The artist talk will be moderated by the Bechtler Museum curator, Jennifer Edwards. Both events are free and open to the public. As an artist grounded in the importance of an artwork’s composition over its subject, Van Sickle’s images of the romantic, evanescent moments of bohemian life in the 1950s and 1960s survive today as narratives of the post-war world. Van Sickle studied in New York City at the Art Students’ League under the German

avant-garde painter George Grosz, and later in Paris with the Hungarian photographer André Kertész. After several years in Paris, he moved to New York City. The rambunctious, progressive United States to which Van Sickle returned astonished the young artist, whose focus shifted to 1960s America. Van Sickle’s photography has been exhibited nationally and internationally, in prestigious museums such as Galerie Thierry Marlat, Paris, France; Limelight Gallery, New York; and the first photography exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York in 1960. SOCO Gallery is a contemporary art space and bookshop based in Charlotte, North Carolina. The gallery provides a thoughtful platform for contemporary art to be experienced, discussed, and acquired. SOCO Gallery produces six exhibitions annually, and exclusively represents artist working locally, nationally, and internationally at the highest levels.

An Art Destination with large market quality, in a midsize Southern town. Each of the Triangle cities are perfect walking destinations. In Downtown Raleigh there are a handful of great galleries including The Mahler Fine Art. Stroll over to the Warehouse District, which might as well be called the Art District with it’s row of galleries such as 311 Gallery and a contemporary art museum. Lee Hansley Gallery, located north of the Warehouse District on Glenwood Ave is a must visit with exhibits showcasing regional and national artists in a variety of mediums. Durham is a beautifully quaint historic city with remnants of it’s rich Tobacco history. There, you’re bound to be amazed by the variety of art galleries and art exhibitions. Pleiades Gallery is an exquisite gallery

that contains some of the top regional artists. Through This Lens is an unassuming art gallery focusing on photography with exhibitions and artist talks by both nationally and world-renowned photographers.

This frameshop with a gallery in the basement exhibits works by artists who are collected in major markets throughout the nation. Chapel Hill is centered around UNC Chapel Hill. This center of graduate and post-graduate education brings with it a wide array of visual arts.

Definately one of artGuide’s favorite Art Destinations, the Triangle is a perfect day visit or long weekend visit for all art patrons. In the following pages we’ve featured some of our top choices. Check out more features about the Triangle on!


Triangle, NC Art Destinations Below artGuide has the pleasure of introducing some of the top galleries in the Triangle area. They hail from all the main cities encompassing the area - Raleigh, Durham, and Chapel Hill. We’ve also listed an amazing abstract artist, trained in New York City. We’ve been fortunate to feature these amazing galleries during a month when many of them have national and world-renowned artists exhibiting in their spaces. From clay, to photography, to paintings, many of the below galleries are exhibiting names that are recognizable in major art markets; a true testament to the thriving art scene in the Triangle area.

1. Craven Allen Gallery, gallery. Durham, NC 1106 ½ Broad St, Durham, NC 919.286.4837 Craven Allen Gallery in Durham features rotating exhibitions as well as a selection of artworks by local artists working in a variety of media including photography, painting, sculpture, ceramics, and prints. The gallery began as a labor of love as part of the picture framing business House of Frames, in 1968. Some of the nationally known artists represented include Damian Stamer, whose evocative landscapes are currently featured in Altered Land at the NC Museum of Art; the photographer and architect Phil Freelon; and Beverly McIver, subject of the HBO Documentary Raising Renee. McIver is widely acknowledged as a significant presence in contemporary American art and has charted a new direction as an

African American woman artist; she was named as one of the “Top Ten in Painting” in Art in America. Opening on October 1st is Cuba Now, photography by Elizabeth Matheson, recipient of the North Carolina Award for Excellence in the Arts—the state’s highest civilian honor. Matheson’s enigmatic new photographs explore the country she finds “...deeply and soulfully beautiful, filled with both melancholy and irrepressible delight.” Gallery favorite Sue Sneddon follows in November with Life Size, featuring paintings of the NC coast. 2. Lee Hansley Gallery, gallery. Raleigh, NC 225 Glenwood Ave, Raleigh, NC 919.828.7557 Claude Howell and his printmaker, Carson Tredgett of Charlotte, are reunited this month in an exhibition at Lee Hansley Gallery. It is the last exhibition in the Glenwood South space. The gallery is moving in the fall to 1053 East Whitaker Mill Road. Claude and Carson began their collaborative venture in 1978 and produced a total of ten serigraphs together. The images were all based on Howell paintings. Producing the serigraphs required close collaboration between artist and printer. Each print has between 38-46 colors, meaning a silkscreen film was made for each color. A single pass of ink was made per color as it was transferred to paper. Howell was allowed final say before prints could be signed and released for sale. Tredgett’s set of master prints are numbered 1/1 printer’s proof. Tredgett is a native of Leicester, England. At age 16 he went to work for a master printer and by age 20 he was shop manager at a major commercial printing house. He moved to Charlotte in 1977 and set up his own business in 1979 which he ran for 35 years. Tredgett will discuss his relationship with Howell and explain the printing process at a gallery talk on Sept. 11 at 3 p.m.

26 3. The Mahler Fine Art, gallery. Raleigh, NC 228 Fayetteville St, Raleigh, NC 919.896.7503 This October The Mahler Fine Art is proud to present a large pot installation by Daniel Johnston. Johnson’s large pot installations marry the art of pottery with the worldly gratification of senses by creating differing light and composition environments. “After several years spent producing and selling large jars, I challenged myself to make a series of 100 human-scale vessels which I displayed in a single line spanning a quarter mile. Upon completion, I saw the vessels accompanied by multitudes of patrons in a harmonious line with their shadows cast perfectly parallel upon the ground. At that moment I saw the project in a context spanning the distance between the traditional object and the ephemeral experience. It struck me that I had found the place for my work to live conceptually in this culture - as installations.” Johnson’s site-specific conceptual installation houses his large pots (as many as 30 large vessels) in a structure evoking a rural shrine, teahouse or the shell of a massive kiln. The plank and board structure allows light to softly illuminate the glaze of the pots while creating shadow and line across the surroundings. The experience is one of beauty, peace, and reverence. Opening Sept 14, with a First Friday Reception on Oct 7, the exhibit run through Oct 20. 4. Don Mertz, artist. Cary, NC 919.434.7040 Don Mertz’s path to becoming an artist was a slow one. From The Art Institute of Pittsburgh, to the Marines, to 25 years of Corporate America. Living in New York City, he spent many hours in galleries and

museums. Becoming increasingly inspired by Abstract Expressionism, his desire to create art was reawakened, and he began classes at The Art Students’ League of NY. He decided to leave corporate life, move to North Carolina, and finally become what he always knew he was--an Artist. Represented in Raleigh by ArtSource, and in Morehead City by Vision Gallery, his award-winning abstract art has been in many juried and solo-shows. Mertz’s way of creating art is an appealing one. In his current work, The Wonder Series, he approaches a canvas the way a child approaches a sandbox; eager to explore possibilities, and experience the wonder and joy of discovery when playing. It is a time of creative spontaneity--free of rules and goals. Yet he is always guided by his adult-sense of aesthetics. Canvases in The Wonder Series have layers upon layers of brush strokes and watery drips. The colors collide, complement, blend, and are often punctuated by marks and squiggles. Some palettes are delicate pastels. Others are lush with bright colors. There are always quiet spaces that create shapes of composition. While painting is indeed fun for him, he also adds, “Painting is a challenging and satisfying passion--and a perfect opportunity to smoke a good cigar, sip a great single malt scotch, and listen to Willie Nelson.” 5. Pleiades Gallery, gallery Durham, NC 109 East Chapel Hill St, Durham, NC 919.797.2706 Pleiades Gallery promises exceptional contemporary art, interesting exhibits, and a friendly attitude whether you are an established art collector or this is your first time in an art gallery. Pleiades creates a haven from the heat

Durham, NC 303 E Chapel Hill St, Durham, NC 919.687.0250 Jerry Uelsmann has long been a legend in the photographic world. His well-known work began in the late 1950s.

His photographs can be found in the permanent collections of Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Chicago Art Institute, the Bibliotheque National in Paris, and too many others to list.

Kinetic Art: Shaping Time Sept 1 - Oct 1, 2016 E = mc² and art blend together to create Kinetic Art. Wikipedia defines kinetic art as “art from any medium that contains movement perceivable by the viewer or depends on motion for its effect.” Physics explains that an object in motion maintains kinetic energy until its speed changes. If it is powered by the wind or an observer, its speed is constantly changing, creating mesmerizing patterns of light and shadow, color, and shapes. Taking the time to observe this type of sculpture in motion is hypnotic, inducing a state of meditation. What a wonderful way to combat the stresses of everyday living! I recently had the opportunity to spend an evening with some of Kevin Duval’s sculptures. I found myself entranced by the changing designs and enjoyed watching how passersbys couldn’t help but stop and touch and play with the art. The experience had a way of slowing life down, even if just for the moment. The Shaping Time exhibit is a series of interactive, multi-axial, kinetic sculptures that have been composed using a combination of new metals and salvaged components.

The varying shapes, colors, and object placement make each piece unique in its static state, while select pivot placement, careful balancing, and human interaction allow them to dance an original number each time they are touched. Kevin Duval is an emerging, self taught metal artist. A lifelong love of tools, mechanics, and a background in machining has evolved into his current work which is mostly kinetic in nature, and somewhat abstract in design. Working with many different metals and components affords Kevin the opportunity to use a myriad of tools and techniques in the composition of original, one of a kind sculptures. Kevin lives in Wilmington, NC with his wife, and two young daughters.

Biannual fundraiser - LCGA

ArtSource Fine Art Gallery Sept 22 - Oct 20

Les Yeux du Monde Sept 24

Kathy Cousart of Athens, Georgia and Gina Strumpf of Charlotte, North Carolina will join together in Reverie to start off the Fall season.

Lydia Gasman was a renowned Picasso scholar and beloved Professor of Modern Art at the University of Virginia. She revolutionized Picasso studies with her wide ranging and powerful readings of Picasso’s work in relation to his life and the history of the 20th century.

Cousart focuses on traditional subject matter with a fresh, contemporary look that has an abstract edge to it. She also enjoys painting from life and the play of light and shadow and the effect that it has on color and value. Strumpf is recognized by her distinctive style in her popular “Red Umbrella” European and New York City-scapes. Like Cousart, she also loves painting En Plein Air, and traveling whenever possible to inspire her artwork. Join ArtSrouce Fine Art Gallery on September 22, 6-8pm for an artists’ reception to meet Cousart and Strumpf and put their faces with the beautiful artwork that they both create. ArtSource Fine Art Gallery has been bringing collector-level fine art to patrons since 1990.

When she passed away, she left a treasure trove of books and manuscripts to two of her former doctoral students, who then founded the non-profit Lydia Csato Gasman Archives to preserve and share her brilliant scholarly legacy with a wider audience. The biannual fundraiser for the LCGA will take place on September 24 at Les Yeux du Monde amidst work by Picasso, Gasman, and other important artists. The theme Picasso in Three Dimensions was inspired by the 2015 MOMA exhibition of Picasso’s sculpture and by Gasman’s ground-breaking readings of Picasso’s art and writings in spatial and cosmic terms.

Profiles in art Vinings Gallery

Vinings Gallery is pleased to be celebrating the Grand Opening of its second location in Historic Roswell during the weekend of September 16-18. Artists Zheng Li, Gloria Lee, Chad Awalt, Fabio Napoleoni, John-Mark Gleadow, and others will join the Gallery family in celebrating the new location! Owner Gary Handler explains the expansion in Roswell: “After almost 20 years in business, and almost four years here in Historic Roswell, we saw the opportunity for an additional large space in this vibrant community. Vinings Gallery now has two locations in Historic Roswell catering to the bustling population that frequents the Canton Street area. The arts community is thriving in this neighborhood, and we couldn’t be more thrilled to be a part of that movement!” Since 1999, Vinings Gallery has grown to be one of the region’s leading art galleries. What brought you into art? The funny thing is, I never had any type of art class, or formal training for this line of work in college. But, I took a part-time job in an Atlanta art gallery shortly after graduating and fell in love with the industry -- it then became my career What was your vision for Vinings Gallery, and how has this vision come to fruition and exceeded it? My vision was to bring an internationally-recognized group of artists to the Atlanta community, which has been so incredibly supportive and trusting of Vinings Gallery over the years. One of the benchmarks on which we’ve built this business has been relationships -- we have become friends with so many collectors, and in turn they

(and we) have created lifelong friendships with the artists we represent. Atlanta and the Southeast have really responded overwhelmingly to our portfolio. It’s been a very exciting journey. What will the new space bring to the Roswell and Greater Atlanta area? Visitors to the new Gallery will recognize the trademark Vinings Gallery vibe with a bit more of a contemporary edge. This collection now includes new sculpture and fine art glass along with the two-dimensional art that we are already well-known for. What does the future hold for Vinings Gallery? We are just so excited to be a part of the thriving Roswell community. As far as the Gallery itself, we will stay true to our mission of being on the cutting edge so we have the ability to introduce emerging artists into our portfolio while maintaining an array of artists that speak to the more traditional and established body of work.

Vinings Gallery is an exquisite gallery representing national and world renowned artists in a variety of mediums. Vinings Gallery on Canton 938 Canton Street Roswell, GA 30075 770-545-8887
