GLASS SEURAT- This commission is based on a conté crayon drawing by French post-Impressionist painter Georges Seurat (1859- 1891). This glass version is made of 20 double layered, fused glass panels, which are set into an existing back lit wall, between the kitchen and living space.

 

ABOUT JOSEPH

Joseph Cavalieri runs CAVAglass, a stained glass design and production studio in New York City. His focus is making one-of-a-kind commissions and art for exhibitions in the US and internationally. He specializes in contemporary stained glass, often based on fables and books, as well as production of these works using techniques including hand painting, air brushing, and sand blasting stained glass. He has worked with fabricators Willet Hauser Architectural Glass Inc. in Minnesota, and Derix Art Glass in Germany.

 

 

“One of the really interesting things that Joseph does is tap into all of our associations with stained glass and then flips them on end”.

 — Jennifer Scanlan, Associate Curator at the Museum of Arts and Design in New York

 

 

Joseph’s focus is hand-painted stained glass art using methods created by Medieval artists. He first draws the design, then cuts colored glass pieces to fit the design. These fit together like a large puzzle. He then paints each section of glass with enamels that are kiln fired, melting the design onto the glass. The glass is then soldered together, set into a wall hung metal frame with internal LED lighting. Though the technique is very historic, Cavalieri updates the stories illustrated in the work to relate to the past, present and future. Past is the traditional stained glass vibrant illuminated colors, designs, and patterns. The present are images from current icons like The Simpson‘s and Alice in Wonderland!

 

 

JOSEPH’S WORK

 

 

 

 

CINDERELLA- Magical characters of Cinderella, her fairy godmother and the magical pumpkin carriage come from an existing antique slide. They are combined on stage in front of an audience of muscle men. Commissioned work.

 

 

 

MADONNA & PRADA- Commissioned in 2013, and currently in the permanent collection of the Museum of Arts and Design. This multiple layered stained glass triptych tells the story of a modern day Madonna and her favorite accessories. Traditional religious paintings typically shows Madonna caressing the Baby Jesus. The Christ Child is replaced with a Gothic version of a Prada shoe.

 

 

 

 

 

HANSEL & GRETEL-  See this work in person in the lounge of Dixon Place in New York City. This work is based on the Brothers Grimm fairy tale “Hansel & Gretel” and uses characters from the production at the New York Metropolitan Opera.

“Reds” by Fran Goodman

 

 

 

When asked why she teaches, Fran tells The Rickie Report, “Although I enjoy composing weekly curriculums and delivering the contents, it is not the reason I love to teach. I love to teach because of what my students give back to me…their faith and trust in me.  Their approving nods while I’m in the process of explaining something, their warm smiles when they get it, their great eagerness to absorb what I suggest to them during their process, their pride and joy in their finished painting. I saw all this yesterday when I taught my first class at the Boca Raton Community Center. Often outside of class, some students will text me an image of a painting they have started on their own to ask for my opinion, or they will contact me to tell me about a gallery show or event I may be interested in. My students never give me a hard time, challenge me, or put me on the defensive, instead, they allow me to mold our experience into one that will be memorable for both of us”.

 

 

FRAN’S STORY:

 

I was born into a family of models and physically beautiful people who put beauty on a pedestal. I was a pretty little girl with an idyllic childhood. I loved to draw and do paint by number canvases but my greatest joy was to design elaborate clothing for my paper dolls and dream about becoming a famous fashion designer who would live in Paris like my heroine Madeline from the Madeline book series. Then at puberty my life turned into a nightmare with the sudden arrested growth of my jawbone. My family shunned me and my classmates persecuted what was now my chinless face. Feeling like I had no worth as a person, I fell into a deep depression. To sooth myself I turned to my art and would draw huge cartoon characters to keep me company. Another thing I would do is pile reams of construction paper monochromatically in my closet and sit in there for hours being soothed by their color.

 

When I was fifteen, I underwent two failed operations to reconstruct my jaw (in one, I nearly died from complications). Through it all, I held onto my childhood dream of becoming a famous dress designer. I still had the dream when I graduated high school and learned I had been accepted to Chouinard Art Institute, the same school that Edith Head, Hollywood costume designer of the ‘40s, and Bob Mackie, designer for Cher and Carol Burnett had attended. Chouinard was a very progressive school with very progressive ideas. First day of orientation we eighteen-year old students were told, “If you’re here to learn anything, there’s the door.”  In my second semester I took a painting course as an elective. We didn’t have to physically paint in a classroom, only show up on the day of the critique at the end of the eight-week course.

 

 

 

Award winning “Garden of Happiness” by Fran Goodman

 

 

 

 

On that day my fellow classmates and I set our paintings on easels in a long row. I looked at the other ones in disbelief. Every one of them was covered with “displaced” lines and color, what I thought amounted to scribble scrabble a child could do, while I had slaved to make my painting resemble real objects. That day was my introduction to abstract expressionism as I soon discovered, when my professor, Robert Chuey, went from one student to another extolling their ability to elicit feelings and emotions in their paintings, which I thought was a real cop out. Instantly, I hated abstract expressionism and wanted nothing to do with it.

 

That day was also a red-letter day, as I learned from my professor, I was wasting my time in fashion, that I was born to paint. I switched majors and painted up a storm while my fellow classmates dubbed me Post Renaissance Girl. When I was in grammar school, my greatest joy was to build dimension into the visual aids that accompanied my school reports, sometimes so intricate and mammoth in size, my father would help carry them into class. At Chouinard, I chose various organic and non-organic materials to build this dimension, including spackling wall paste. As a student, I was able to get my paintings, which were quite large into furniture show rooms and galleries in the LA area; also, in a NJ gallery that my mother had found, but all at the price of taking my name off the canvas. It seemed society wasn’t happy that one showed up as a young female painter in the ‘60s. After three years of this, my father saw only a starving artist in my future and made me quit my education at Chouinard.

 

I then left the fine art world to carve out what would be a thirty-year career as spokesperson for the rights of women and their faces. I designed and disseminated seminars and support groups – concerned more with how women felt about their faces than how they actually looked — in the US and Canada and drew the National and Canadian media. Over the years I was featured on talk shows, radio, and women’s magazines and in newspaper articles including in The New York Times.  During my career, I didn’t paint. Instead, I wrote a memoir and two screenplays about my life.  In 2013, a bout with Lyme disease left me with arthritic fingers and the inability to continue to write. I became depressed, then thought to try painting again. I found that the palette knife over a paintbrush was easier to hold and I also found that abstract expressionism was a better fit for my hands. Still with a passion to build dimension and structure into my paintings, I used pastes, sands and acrylic skins, and my favorite, paper towels. In 2014, I was accepted into Larry Poons’ master class at the Art Students League in NY. Under his tutelage, my paintings were exhibited in group shows in galleries in the Chelsea district of Manhattan.

 

In the same year, I designed an 8-week curriculum where I could teach my craft to beginning painters at the Morris Museum in Morristown, NJ. The program director, finding the class “educational, inspiration and a load of fun”, took it four times!  I moved to Florida in February 2016 and joined the art world in Palm Beach County. Through the auspices of the various guilds that I joined, I was able to show my work in galleries in Southern Florida. I also designed a classroom curriculum for beginning students who wanted to learn abstract expressionism. While I was painting in Larry Poon’s class, I studied the master expressionists from the ‘40’s and ‘50s and found that they were the real teachers. When I put my class together, I decided to apply what I learned so students would have an opportunity to “know” these masters as well, not only through their bio, but through experiencing their style of painting. I called my class, “Not Your Ordinary Painting Class – blending art history with abstract expressionism.

 

“During my life I have created projects, seminars, support groups and trainings in the United States and Canada to inspire growth and self-esteem. Whether it was through my business as spokeswoman for women’s beauty rights, or through Toastmasters as a mentor to many, or as an art educator; whether I was addressing men, women or teens of all ages and all walks of life, I looked for their potential and then empowered them to be their best selves. To me, there is no greater reward than witnessing people flower and bloom.”  Fran’s Artist statement tells us, “I approach the canvas with a desire to fuse color with texture, free of intention, tradition and norms. I count on layering properties to burn a life force into even the smallest structures. My strokes, some obscure, some undefined, personify difference and sameness and how the two natures work in concert with one another.”

 

 

“Satin Nights” by Fran Goodman

 

HOW I TEACH “NOT YOUR ORDINARY PAINTING CLASS”

 

My students are usually adults who have never painted in abstract expressionism before. They don’t necessarily have any prior drawing or painting experience either.  On the first day of class, I explain to them that they are not here to “make apples to take bites out of.” In fact, there is nothing they must or should do! There are no goals, no mistakes! We paint from our hearts, not from our brains. I also stress what I learned from Larry Poons: “One stroke leads to the next stroke and so on.”  Usually for the first twenty minutes of every class the students sit together while I show a PowerPoint presentation and/or from my I-pad, the painting (style) of a particular abstract expressionist from the ‘40s and ‘50s. I talk about the artist’s life and philosophy and with the use of handouts, we discuss everything in preparation for them to begin their painting.

 

Some students start the first class skeptical about their ability and are nervous to put a single mark on a canvas (that needs to be 16” x 20”.) Then, in subsequent classes, I notice not only does their self-confidence and quality of work grow, but their desire to paint on larger canvases as well. By the end of the 4 weeks, some of the students are painting on canvases as large as 30” x 40”.  Within the context of each class are the primary lessons of color and design related to the artist. For example, after exploring the paintings of Franz Klein who primarily worked in black, white and shades of gray, the students would then work up a palette where they develop color values by adding black and white to various hues before applying the paint to their canvas.

 

At the start of the second half of the class, students are introduced to a certain medium related to the artist. In the case of Franz Kline, because his strokes were energetic, raw, action-oriented, they might try gel gloss, as its “slide” mimics that of quick, action strokes. For the most part the students use palette knives.  One thing important to me is that the students learn layering techniques and other applications that add dimension to their paintings. Some things they’ve used: tissue paper, sand, masking tape, pastes, gels, paper towels, acrylic skins and even rose petals. I may do a quick demo on a certain technique, but I don’t like to elaborate with demos, because I don’t want them to be influenced by my application.  A single painting is completed in every 2 1/2 hour class. I encourage students to develop their canvas, meaning not to consider the first layer as finished. To illustrate, I show slides of how my paintings developed.

Another thing I’m sensitive to and stress, is what I learned when I was writing a memoir years ago: the concept of “kill your darlings,” meaning, even if you love what you are writing, if it doesn’t move the story along, it needs to go. The same I find applies to painting in abstract expressionism.  During every class, I make repeated trips to each student’s canvas to check on their progress. I look for concepts (that I have taught them) — balance, values, focal point and other design elements. I give my opinions, but always allow the students the last word.  Halfway into every class, “we do the “official 4-way turn. Here, the students have the opportunity to voice their opinion as to whether each other’s paintings would “look better” going forward in another direction. And again, the artist of the painting has the final word.  I encourage group dynamics. I find the chemistry that gets produced not only allows for an active, fun class, but that the students learn from one another as well.

TESTIMONIES AND COMMENTS

 

At the end of each 4-weeks, Fran hands out an evaluation sheet. This is also important, as she wants to know what the students liked and disliked and what she can improve on. She also asks for comments.

Here are a few from several students:

  • “I am so happy to have met and attended Fran’s art classes.  She has touched my soul with her gentle presence, her love of art, and intelligent observations. She has brought out a new and exciting awareness of color, lines, movement and values; unknown to me before.”
  • “Fran brings out the hidden artist in all of us with demonstrations by famous artists, color, theory, observations and discussion with music and laughter.”
  • “Thank you, Fran for stirring and waking up my sleeping artistic soul.”
  • “Thanks for blowing the lids off our minds by teaching your method! Think I was at a crossroads with painting the former way.
  • “I can’t begin to tell you how much of an impact you have made on my life I came to your class expecting nothing more than a pleasant version and an outlet for my grief with your help I have discovered something I love I have so much to learn but even though the process is sometimes painful for me I am glad to have your guidance to help me along in this journey you are a wonderful teacher and a special human being I am so glad I found you.”

I have received all sorts of other accolades, small gifts, even “certificate of excellence” (straight of the internet, the kind you’d give to a child” but very precious to me. However, the greatest gift/compliment comes when my students tell me they want to sign up for more classes. Some of my advanced students have taken over 10- 4- week classes.  In all, I say I truly love my students, I love them for their enthusiasm, love them for their talent, love them for who they are as people and artists.  Last July I arranged to showcase 67 paintings by 19 students at the Center for Spiritual Living in Boca Raton .The reporter from the Sun-Sentinel came and was so taken by the quality of the work from folks who never tried abstract expressionism before — some had never even touched paint — that his article made two cover stories on August 7th, in the Boca Times and the West Boca Times. (more on my website under media)

 

 

MANY PASSIONS:

Another art-related passion is my role as Art Education Fund Chairwoman for the Delray Art League. I have held this position for four years and it has allowed me to meet and connect with the directors and administrators of very special organizations in Palm Beach County. Every year, I organize an award ceremony event where I have the privilege of doling out 10% of the Leagues profits to these organizations — a ritual the League has been engaged in since 1965, to assist in their visual arts programs. This December, the League expanded its generosity when the members chose to play Secret Santa to the Palm Beach Habilitation Center. Over 70 gifts, all holiday wrapped, were delivered to the squeals and glee of adults with special needs at their holiday party. The manager at Jerry’s Artarama in Deerfield Beach allowed me to design a Christmas bin and shoppers were encouraged to donate art supplies, Also the members of the League brought gifts to a meetup held at the Heart of Delray Gallery in Delray Beach, where the league taken space to exhibit.  Still another passion involves delivering talks on abstract expressionism, especially reciting wild tales about the masters from the ‘40’s and ‘50s, that I’ve gleaned through the years. Usually at the end of a talk I invite the participants to do a Community Canvas project where everyone gets to put a stroke (s) on one large canvas.  Additionally, I give demos on both how to work with various mediums and also how to give Dynamic Demos.

Erica Ando asks a very important question: “WHO’S THE CEO OF YOUR ART BUSINESS?” Our next Art Salon is a ‘Take It To The Bank’ Salon, something we haven’t done in a long time. Erica has founded “The Empowered Artist”, a new business & career coaching service and resource for artists, and will be sharing some of the career building secrets that she’s learned during her over 20 year career working with artists, non-profits, museums and commercial galleries, and as a curator of exhibitions and public programs. Erica has also been a successful grant writer, editor and project manager, as well as a respected art writer for regional, national and international publications, like BOMB, Sculpture, ArtPress, Art Papers, The Miami Rail, and others.

 

 

Erica earned a BFA from Parsons School of Design and an MFA from Tyler School of Art. She went back to school in her 40s and earned a PhD from Florida Atlantic University in the Fine and Performing Arts.  In another life, she owned and operated a profitable fashion accessories company for eight years. (Fun Fact: her first client was the store at MOMA).  Through all of her adventures, she’s learned the hard way about how important it is to balance the creative and business sides of work. She’s also learned about selling and marketing, which, as an introvert, did NOT come naturally!

 

 

It’s her personal mission to empower artists to thrive creatively, build a successful career with purpose and authenticity, make more money, and have the knowledge and confidence to keep it going.  In this presentation, Erica will be talking about her background and what inspired her to start “The Empowered Artist”. In the second hour of the Salon, she’ll be answering your art business and career questions! This is definitely a “Don’t Miss” Salon.

 

 

Art Salons meet in the Armory Art Center Library on Tuesday nights, usually the first Tuesday of each month, 6:30 – 8:30 pm, from October through May. Salons are open to anyone who would like to participate in these lively discussions. 

 

 

 

The Armory Art Center’s art school and galleries provide creative opportunities to enhance your life. The Armory has served the community for over 30 years. The mission of the Armory Art Center is to inspire the creation and experience of art and the Armory’s vision is to be the leading community resource for arts education.

The gallery is known for showing a balance of 20th Century masters and young and emerging talent. Fisher also operates exhibition spaces at the celebrated Brazilian Court Hotel in Palm Beach and in Wynwood Miami at the Ogetti Building. He exhibits at major art fairs as well.
