THE STUDIO DOOR


Over the years, I’ve had the pleasure of working with local artist Jon Savage. As with most artists, my first introduction to him was through his artwork. The graphic nature of his body of work is consistently playful and dramatic. There hasn’t been a piece of his that we’ve hung that hasn’t drawn people off the streets and into the gallery. I think that patrons really enjoy that he has the ability to get his message across instantly and without fanfare. When he came in the gallery, I was surprised by his vitality and his larger than life (mustache) presence. His laughter is seriously infectious. As a gallery owner, what really won me over was his commitment to his creativity and his slick social marketing. As an artist, he makes a great gallery partner. When he approached me to consider an exhibition to celebrate Deaf Awareness Month, I was all in. This month, the gallery will showcase 19 artists hailing from California, Colorado, Georgia, Maryland, New York, North Dakota, Pennsylvania, Washington and Washington DC. The exhibition includes general works created by Deaf and Hard of hearing artists as well as works from the De’VIA [Deaf View/Image Art] movement. This art movement is a growing trend among artists seeking to express the experience of being Deaf. Its truly a form of Deaf Pride in that it deals with themes of empowerment, American Sign Language (ASL) and perceptions upon the Deaf experience. I found myself surprised and enlightened by the works that will be on display. You may recall that earlier this year, I held a national LGBTQIA exhibition followed by my own exploration of gay male identity. Artistry Through Deaf Eyes allowed me to a see the parallels between our communities. I guess in a way, these works of art allowed me to understand the Deaf experience in a richer way than I had known before using a visual language that I could understand. I’m so honored to be sharing these works with the public. I hope that you will take the time to personally connect with these works in the gallery and online. This exhibition is something very special to experience. By the way, Deaf Community Services of San Diego will be participating in the reception to help create a bridge between our Deaf and Hearing guests. I’m looking forward to Saturday, September 9th. Write this one down in your calendar because you won’t want to miss it. The deadline for studio artists across San Diego to participate in the Third Annual OPEN STUDIOS SAN DIEGO is open through mid-month. The event continues to grow every year. Artists Pierre Bounaud, Merle Lambeth, BJ Lane, Daniel Marquez, Vicki Marquez, Julia Rasor, Amanda St. Claire, Margaret Alexis Chiaro, Danielle Nelisse and The Studio Door artists have already confirmed to participate this year. Contact me for more information. If you have a studio, this is the perfect time to bring patrons to you. If you love art, OPEN STUDIOS SAN DIEGO is a fantastic event to get a look at where artists work and purchase works directly from the source. More details can be found in this issue of The Monthly and online at www.OPEN STUDIOS SAN DIEGO.com As autumn arrives and you look towards the gift giving season, please remember to support San Diego’s visual artists by buying their work. A thriving art scene depends up on patrons. You can make a difference.

Keep Living Art! ers, Che

My name is Bridget Klein and I am a doctoral student at American University studying Anthropology, a field that focuses on collecting people’s stories. I am also an American Sign Language / English Interpreting instructor at Bloomsburg University in Pennsylvania.

Still from Steam to the Heart A Demonstration of her sign name, Bridget, as a B letter on her chest as she touches an invisible wall trying to capture “self respect.”

Whenever I have time, I would love to experiment with art by playing around with combining signing with photography or signing with film. In order to understand my artwork, you must understand the meaning of a hand. Usually, you form a first impression of someone with the first time you meet them and they shake your hand.. You see and feel their hand. Throughout life, we all face challenges that may cause us to fall but we get up again and stand up stronger. As a farmer’s daughter that happened to be Deaf too, I worked on the farm -labor which caused me to get hurt and develop scars. Therefore when you see and feel my hand, you feel the scars, the tough texture - all of those aspects reflect who I am. Scars are the result of healing - by closing up the original cut, they mend our minds, hearts, and souls. And they leave an indelible mark.

TASSOLOGY SERIES 12” x 12” Encaustic Mixed Media Tassology is the ancient study of reading tea leaves. I found when I laid the hand made paper strips into a liquid hot pour of melted wax, they formed different patterns that reminded me of tea leaf reading.

Hidden Master • (9) 12” x 12” x 2” • Encaustic Mixed Media This piece was created after an illness suddenly destroyed my hearing. The shredded painting denotes the mixture of emotion that I experienced from that loss. The work is a deconstructed portrait of Vincent van Gogh, who in his madness, subsequently cut off his own ear. My reconstruction of van Gogh reflects the rebuilding of my own life, piece by piece. My life may not look the same as it once had; however we all have the power to “reconstruct” life into a richer, more meaningful one. It’s a reminder not to take loved ones or circumstances for granted.

r pain, our happiness, our consciousness, onality of the human experience. Hello, my name is Cassandra Schramm and I am an artist. My constant urge to develop my skills in many areas of art has led me to a wide variety of art related fields .I have been an Art teacher for elementary, middle as well as high school , but my passions have always been painting and decorative wall finishes. I have been painting my who life, but I have been painting murals for 18 years and faux finishing for 15 years. I have a degree in Studio art From UMASS Boston. I was born and raised in Southern California, but my experiences in life have taken me down many paths. I have lived on the west coast, the east coast, the south and in different parts of the world. I am also a proud Veteran of the USMC. I am known by my close friends to be someone who just GOES…. I feel that these experiences have given me a unique outlook on life and I am forever grateful. “”“Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one’s lifetime.”””-Mark Twain .. My journey through art has been the most interesting, frustrating, and empowering part of my life. I have had many infatuations, but a forever-lingering subject matter of mine has been eyes. The EYE is an image that is so deeply rich in symbolism. EYES are said to be the windows to the soul. In Christianity it is a symbol of faith (representing the forever seeing eyes of God, the watchful caretaker), in Middle Eastern cultures it is a symbol of life and protection Called the Hamsa . In India, the eye is known for the eye if Shiva, the possessor of all knowledge, which when opened will destroy anything it sees. Thus it is a symbol of knowledge which destroys evil and ignorance. Though many cultures have their interpretations of what eyes mean, one thing can not be disputed, the eyes is a intriguing part of what it means to be human. To maintain eye contact with another person, is a very vulnerable experience. This is a part of our everyday life, when we choose to let people in or keep them out. When we let down our guard and look into anothers eyes, we are opening up ourselves to them. Most of the time this becomes very intimidating, but at the same time, this is the point at which all of your pre-judgments about that person begin to fade . You start to see that person in a different light. You start to see them as a person, another human being that is part of the whole experience of life.
