Through the Looking Glass:

outstanding midwest artist exhibit

The Work of Alan Larkin South Shore Arts is pleased to present Through the Looking Glass, the fifth in our Outstanding Midwest Artist series, featuring contemporary artist and educator Alan Larkin. Greatly influenced by myth and literature, Larkin’s work is mysterious, provocative and, at times, humorous. “Art should be about wonder and magic,” the artist states. Through the Looking Glass is inspired by Lewis Carroll’s famous book about a little girl named Alice who ponders what the world is like on the other side of a mirror’s reflection. Stepping through the looking glass, she enters into a strange world where nothing is what it seems. This idea reflects Larkin’s intention to portray worlds in which small heroines are often confronted with new and confusing ideas. “I spend a lot of time poking through antiques shops waiting for little figures to call out to me,” he says. “All of a sudden, an object, possessing almost human presence, commands my attention. Certain objects, such as the brass pig and iron donkey, appear again and again in my work. They are rich with pathos and remind me of my childhood.” Larkin considers himself first and foremost a painter of beauty. In Apotheosis, Larkin glorifies his subject, a small stuffed elephant, to a divine level. “I keep looking for small figurines that are expressive, amusing, pensive, sad. Like a Butterfly, a painting that I finished earlier this year, deals

with one of my frequent themes: the yearning of small things. There’s something small within each of us that wants always to be greater than it apparently is.” Often Larkin’s work feels as though the objects he has painted will awaken and come to life the moment you leave the room. Technically, his works are remarkable for the way in which textures and reflective surfaces are painted. Evidence of his long time interest in the Pre-Raphaelite painters and Dutch masters can be seen in his fine execution. “I like to include a range of finishes in my work, areas which are highly refined such as hands and ankles can be made more visually potent by contrasting them with areas that are more gestural such as dresses or drapes. The challenge is to bring everything into balance.” Originally from Minnesota, Larkin’s earliest influence was his father Eugene Larkin, a teacher and nationally known printmaker. Larkin received his B.A. in art from Carleton College in 1975 and his M.F.A. in printmaking from the Pennsylvania State University in 1977. He spent his first 13 years at IU South Bend working almost exclusively in the area of printmaking, particularly lithography. In 1991, he began to focus more on pastel drawing and oil painting. During Larkin’s 37 years as Assistant and Associate Professor of Printmaking, he maintained a prolific output of lithographs, etchings, pastel drawings and oil paintings. In 2013, he retired from teaching, drawing and printmaking and focuses solely on his art-making practice today. Larkin has won numerous prizes in regional and national competitions, including the Great Lakes Pastel Society Award at the 29th Annual Exhibition of the Pastel Society of America and the Best of Show at the 75th Annual Hoosier Salon Exhibit in Indianapolis. His works are in numerous collections, including those of Pillsbury, NIPSCO, and Lincoln Life Insurance Companies. He is represented by Castle Gallery (Fort Wayne, IN), Wilson Gallery (Kendallville, IN) and the Thaddeus C. Gallery (La Porte, IN). Articles about his work have appeared in both American Artist Magazine and the Pastel Journal. South Shore Arts premiered the Outstanding Midwest Artist series in 2007 to expand our reach as an exhibition venue, explore the creative roots of contemporary visual artists, introduce seminal exhibitions to the public and strengthen the relationship among artists and their audiences in the Midwest. Through the Looking Glass: The Work of Alan Larkin will run June 14 through August 30, 2015, with a reception for the artist on Sunday, June 14, from noon to 3pm, during the Family Arts Festival at the Center for Visual and Performing Arts.

Behind the Easel South Shore Arts Instructor Profiles

Edgar Degas said, “Art is not what you see, but what you make others see.� South Shore Arts takes pride in our diverse teaching talent. Our instructors believe that there is power in sharing creativity. Behind each class and program is a great instructor. Marco Salazar, Fawn Szymoniak and Bill Barrick are three examples of the accomplished talent at South Shore Arts. Marco Salazar sees art as a way of giving back. He credits art as a strong positive influence early in his life and as one of the driving forces behind working with area youth. Marco enlisted in the U.S. Army and served in Desert Storm. After his honorable discharge, he pursued his art education, studying at the School of the Art Institute, American Academy of Art and Columbia. He also became a certified Grumbacher fine art instructor. As one of our outreach instructors, Marco is an integral part of the UNIVERSO: Educational Arts Immersion program provided at no cost to students in East Chicago. Through South Shore Arts, he is also teaching middle school art at East Chicago Urban Enterprise Academy. Marco has been a supportive volunteer with South Shore Arts but his vibrant art career and volunteerism goes beyond his work with us. Marco founded Marcoart, LLC, providing a variety of art and design services to private and corporate clients. He is also part of Chicago BrushMasters, who donate 100% of auction proceeds to the Ronald McDonald House. He is also a nationally exhibiting artist. Fawn Szymoniak has been teaching classes and workshops with South Shore Arts since 2010. She graduated with honors in Graphic Design and is a freelance designer who also works for CR Publications. Working under the pen name, Kojika Sanzaki, Fawn is a published author of both novels and graphic novels, including the Fall of the Dragon trilogy and her ongoing Zos Kias series. Bringing her knowledge of Eastern Arts to South Shore Arts, she teaches Manga classes that explore skills in the popular art of Japanese-style comics. Fawn also teaches Intro to Japanese Art, where students learn about calligraphy, origami and sumi-e. In Fantasy Drawing, Fawn teaches drawing techniques that focus on mythological creatures from various cultures. She is also offering a new introductory level workshop, Sewing 101, in our summer catalog. Traveling the world studying book arts, Bill Barrick brings old world techniques to South Shore Arts. He is an artist, illustrator and graphic designer with a Masters in Education from Purdue University. Bill was awarded the Eli Lilly Indiana Teacher Creativity Award in 2008. Traveling extensively throughout Italy and Switzerland where he studied the arts of papermaking, calligraphy

and hand-bookbinding, Bill is dedicated to preserving and advancing ancient crafts used in bookmaking. At South Shore Arts, he offers a number of book art and paper craft workshops, including bookbinding, calligraphy and book restoration. In his calligraphy workshops he teaches the beautiful art of hand lettering. Students learn the history of calligraphy, including pens, inks and paper. He guides his students through the foundation of proper letterforms, proportions and consistency. The techniques learned can be used to create greeting cards, invitations and more. Using methods dating back to the Medieval period, Bill takes his students on a virtual tour of Europe and ancient book arts. Students learn how to make handcrafted books and learn about the history of papermaking and books of that period. South Shore Arts instructors bring unique talents and real life experiences to our classes and programs to create an enriching learning experience!

Dee Dee Does Downton by John Cain

Reprinted with permission of Shore magazine The Mystery Dinner, a South Shore Arts tradition benefiting educational art programs for children in schools, recently celebrated its fifth incarnation with an evening that featured the cuisine of executive chefs Nicole Bissonnette and Gary Sanders of Bartlett’s. One element that was different about this Mystery Dinner was that it wasn’t held in a private home. This time, we were invited into a retail setting, an art gallery owned by that indefatigable, inventive entrepreneur, owner of the New Buffalo Times and booster of Harbor Country, Dee Dee Duhn. Housed in a former bowling alley on Red Arrow Highway, Ateliers is a dazzling emporium filled with trademark Dee Dee Duhn exotica: Buddhas, Ganeshes, pagodas glittering with tea lights. Thanks to its proprietress, the structure has taken on landmark status with a Hollywood-style Union Pier sign running across the roof line. Among the intoxicating items throughout the store, a Singha from Indonesia is truly remarkable. Made of sacred jack wood and carved all from one tree, its mate is in the presidential palace in Jakarta, Java. Nearby, a reclining Buddha in a pond with floating candles looked quite relaxed despite his sold sign indicating that he’ll soon have a new home in Indiana. The 1940s building with original floor and lane markings, the bowling alley’s gutters covered over with metal plates and the whole place topped by a barreled wood ceiling, is dotted throughout with seating that comes in the most intriguing shapes and sizes. A pair of “Highball Chairs” in chartreuse appeared to be the world’s tallest, most over-

sized wing chairs, reminding one of something Alice might have found in Wonderland. There was even a chair covered in fur. Dee Dee, a woman of many guises, was looking très Cher, circa 1985, for the evening with a black feathered headdress, black leather pants and black stiletto boots that made her seem very much in charge, even without a whip and despite the madness swirling about her. Ever the considerate hostess, she had engineered a cunning attempt at a plastic-covered red carpet to prevent the ladies, resplendent in their finery, from sinking into the thawing March muck and possibly losing a designer heel as they disembarked from their chauffeur-driven conveyance provided for the evening by Southlake Limousine. It worked! Upon arriving, guests were dazzled by their surroundings. It was a bounty of sensory delights. Hors d’oeuvres were passed butler-style (some thinking we were real butlers): pork rillettes on artisan bread with pickled veggies, deviled eggs with crispy pork belly lardons, and spoons of tuna tartare, all accompanied by the evening’s signature cocktail, a St-Germain Elderflower grapefruit martini, shaken not stirred. It was not a good night for keeping Kosher, observing Lent or adhering closely to Dr. Atkins. While all religious and dietary restrictions were being cast asunder, I nipped behind a tiki god and downed two of each appetizer, washing them down with two cocktails. Dee Dee had created an atmosphere of warmth and relaxation accompanied to music by guitarist Ottmar Liebert. It was a beautiful setting: laughter filled the old bowling alley to its exposed rafters. Guests were seated at a

table made of 100-year-old teak fishing boats from Bali, very rustic and cool and comfortably accommodating all ten. Dee Dee had added bits of glamour with candlelight, peacock feathers and comfortable upholstered chairs. Shortly after the first course, references to “Downton Abbey” began to circulate around the table. It’s amazing how quickly people take to being treated like the 1%. “Give our compliments to the staff below stairs, Carson,” one guest said to me. Seriously? I had to be Carson, the old guy with a stick up his butt? I couldn’t be one of the cute footmen? “Certainly, m’lord,” I responded reluctantly. (My better half, the internationally renowned puppeteer, immediately claimed Thomas for himself—naturally, the hot villain of the piece. There’s nothing worse than a flippant, fickle footman.) Life is cruel, indeed, for the 99%. Perhaps the number one most phenomenal aspect of the event was that the chefs prepared the entire six-course meal, hors d’oeuvres and cocktails WITHOUT A KITCHEN! I can’t cook WITH one, so you can imagine how impressive it was to watch Nicole and Gary at work behind a makeshift screen, possibly imported from Bali, that separated the prep area from the guests but did not entirely conceal the hustlebustle behind the scenes. Nicole and Gary’s pas de deux was fascinating to watch, like a finely tuned ballet, each one silently understanding where to go with what and when, not to mention how! They made it all seem effortless, dishing up scallops and halibut and rack of lamb and all without an oven or a stove. “Have you done this before?” I asked amazed. “Yes,” Nicole replied. “And it takes a lot of hard-learned lessons over the years.” The wine flowed freely—too freely for some. The chef recommended a certain pinot noir for the fish course. “I couldn’t possibly,” demurred a guest as I tried to fill her glass. “Oh go ahead and try it,” said her neighbor, “Just for the halibut!” The lure of shopping is a siren song, and the guests happily wandered throughout the store in between courses. Who could blame them—everything sparkled! After dinner, Dee Dee invited everybody to enjoy a cup of Gevalia coffee and a private Ateliers shopping experience. A flurry of

wine-fueled spending followed, because, after four hours of non-stop eating and drinking, who doesn’t need a little retail therapy? And when Dee Dee announced that 10% of all purchases that night would go to South Shore Arts, it seemed like a patriotic duty to spend. Many remarked that it was the best night of their lives—or at the very least, the best meal of their lives. “I feel like a princess,” stated one enthusiastic guest of the outstanding food and service. South Shore Arts board member David Schneider, who had purchased the evening with his wife Diane for a record sum at last year’s annual Beaux Arts Ball, described the evening as “magical.” “What we experienced was beyond anything we could have imagined when we bid last June,” he said. “The time went by too quickly.” As a thank you, one couple bought the beautiful, towering candelabra that Dee Dee had used as the table’s centerpiece, as a gift for Diane and David. And as for our hostess, “I just loved being included,” Dee Dee said. “It was a pleasure and honor to host the Mystery Dinner and to have two fabulous, famous chefs create in my industrial, state-of-the-art kitchen.” (I think that last part was meant to be funny.) “It was fun!” said Chef Nicole. “Almost like a reality TV cooking show. No, wait, that will be in a couple weeks,” a reference to Nicole and Gary’s son, young Ian Sanders, age eight, who is up for a spot on the next season of MasterChef Junior! So, to all parties involved, I extend my heartfelt gratitude. Nicole and Gary were miracle workers, at least in my eyes, being able to produce all that delicious food without a kitchen. Dee Dee was the hostess with the mostest (as if one would have expected anything less). And to Pat Colander of Shore, our Mrs. Hughes who would probably rather be Lady Mary, I say thank you for being the force behind this.
