Luminary With handmade Paper by Mary Catello

 

 

Luminaries with Handmade Paper

This two-day workshop will be an adventure into papermaking with an artistic goal. Each student will work with both cotton and abaca pulp and learn to form sheets of paper. Using reed and/or natural materials they will build a form to be covered with their newly designed paper to create a paper lantern.

This workshop offers the opportunity to experiment, learn and play.

 

 

 

While Mary Catello is predominantly a self-taught fiber artist, she has worked with and studied under some of the most successful artists in the field. Mary has received both local and national acclaim for mind-bending creations. Twice, she has had pieces selected to tour through the US with the National Basketry Association. Locally her paper jewelry, organic sculptures and installations have been juried into art venues from Miami Dade to Martin County. 

 

 

In addition to hours of studio work, Mary has been an instructor at the Armory Art Center for seven years.  As the Armory expands their scope of courses in the Fiber Department, Mary has been instrumental in organizing and promoting the study of paper as a diverse fiber with unlimited potential. Her workshops have included paper making, paper casting, paper jewelry and paper mache as a sculptural medium.

 

 

Luminary with handmade paper by Mary Catello

 

 

 

Mary has always enjoyed expressing her creativity. She was a trendsetting salon owner and stylist in New York City where creating masterpieces of tresses was her art form. Simultaneously, she opened The MaryGrace Institute; the first accredited Nail Technology School in New York. At MaryGrace students were taught, along with basic nail theory and practical lessons, award-winning techniques in airbrushing, 3-dimensional and multi-media nail art.

 

In 1994, after selling her salon and school, Mary relocated to South Florida and began taking classes in sketching, acrylics and water colors. But her true passion began when she met a basket weaver in Sedona, Arizona. Mary was inspired and a fiber artist was born!

 

Mary took only two basket weaving classes with internationally-known weavers, Flo Hoppe and Mary Hetts. She was introduced to palm inflorescence by Judy Briscoe, another basket weaver. On her own she began to experiment with size and materials determined to transform the traditional basket into art, and art it is! Her work is unique and identifiable.

“Painting ‘en plein air’ is simply painting outdoors,” said Allie Snyder, the Plein Air Festival Coordinator for the ArtCenter. “The wet paintings are created from what the artist is looking at, and the paintings resonate with people because it reminds them of their favorite spots. It’s a snapshot of our area and a visual record of the history of this region.”

“No Trespassing” by Khaulah Naima Nuruddin

 

 

 

Khaulah Naima Nuruddin is a multimedia artist from Milwaukee, Wisconsin, who lives and works in South Florida. Nuruddin’s work explores the intersections of personal expression and social commentary by initiating public discussion of race, sexuality and the social transfer inherent to her work as a Black visual artist. Her current SOLO exhibition, at under the bridge / Bridge Red in North Miami, is titled “Not For Sale: Not Today” through March 1. This new work, curated by Tayina Deravile, addresses the complexities of being a Black woman navigating social systems that are deliberately designed to oppress. It is a celebratory acknowledgment of the work Black Women do to survive and thrive beyond barriers. She is also one of three artists who’s work is on view in “Chandelle” at Art’s Up, in FATVillage, NW 1st St., Fort Lauderdale. It can be seen during last Saturday Art Walks through June 27.
