Intuitive/Intentional : The Blending of a Painting Approach

 

 

Carlainvitationfinal

Carla Golembe is an award winning acrylic painter and illustrator. Her work is included in numerous corporate collections. She has painted 5 animal sculptures for “Animals On Parade” public art projects, the “Piano of Joy” for Keys to the City and a wine label for Dos Puentes Winery. In addition to exhibiting her work throughout the U.S., Carla teaches painting at the Boca Raton Museum Art School and Delray Beach Center for the Arts.

 

 

 

"La Bel Canto" by Carla Golembe

“La Bel Canto” by Carla Golembe

 

 

Carla tells The Rickie Report, “Several months ago I began experimenting with Intuitive Painting, a process that involves putting down a lot of layers of color and mark making without planning or intention.  With the intuitive approach the artist basically goes on gut instinct, allowing colors, marks and, eventually, images to emerge.  Up until then my approach had been very planned out, creating several sketches until I got my composition exactly as I wanted it, planning the palette of each painting, though allowing the painting to change as it progressed.  I was beginning to feel stuck with my process and feeling low on ideas and intuitive painting seemed like a good way to move forward”.

 

"Celestial Bodies" by Carla Golembe

“Celestial Bodies” by Carla Golembe

 

 

“At first I was disoriented and kind of shocked by the approach and what was emerging on my canvas.  To be sure, this kind of play with paint was a lot of fun, but was this ME?  How was I going to reconcile these random marks with my carefully constructed, though whimsical and stylized, paintings”?

 

 

" Devi" by Carla Golembe

” Devi” by Carla Golembe

 

“Then my inner muse took over.  By that I mean, the core of who I am as an artist.  The mark making became multilayered underpainting, a freer and more complex type of underpainting than what I had worked with before. Once I built up very rich complex layers of colors I sketched my figures on top of these backgrounds with chalk.  Some canvases suggested their ideas to me while other pieces came from images I wanted to explore”.

 

"Mari" by Carla Golembe

“Mari di Sogni” by Carla Golembe

 

 

“Once my figures were in place I began to work with the interplay of image and background, under layers and over layers, taking away and adding in.  In the paintings I’ve balanced the structure and figures that I love with the spontaneity of creating marks with tools other than brushes and allowing the backgrounds to evolve around the figures. Birds, plants and other forms from nature continue to play a large part in the imagery. I’ve started using more glazing technique to create depth and richness”.

 

 

"Skyward" by Carla Golembe

“Skyward” by Carla Golembe

She explains, “My new process is a blend of intention and intuition.  It’s not a radical change, just a way to move forward and have more fun.  I’ve fallen in love with painting all over again.  I continue to paint beauty, joy and harmony because that is what I want to put out to the world”.

Amelia Costa

Amelia grew up in a large, close knit family in Peru.   She tells us, “My family emigrated to the United States, so that my siblings and I could attend University. I received a Bachelor of Science and after some time in the business world decided to pursue my interest in the arts. I attended Florida Atlantic University to study painting. I gravitated towards clay, just before graduation and stayed awhile longer to satisfy my curiosity and my growing fascination with the medium”.

“In my work, I have combined my two interests  in illustration and clay. Most recently I moved away from color and  concentrated on the story the pieces convey. My aim is to have the pieces tell the viewer the stories that they tell me, and share the journey with me”.

 

 

Irene Jalowayski

Palm Beach Smashing Glass

 

 

Irene tells us, “I am a retired speech pathologist and Florida native, who lives in West Palm Beach.  I was always an art lover/collector and began taking fused glass classes nine years ago.  I  studied with a private teacher, took classes at McMow Art Glass Center,  Art Glass Environments,  Kay Weiner’s Glass Classes, and in several out-of-town venues. Now I have my own studio because my hobby has become my passion!”

“Working with glass has allowed me to express my creativity and love for color, shape and form.  I get lost in my work and experience a thrill each time I open my kiln.  I  sell my work at several galleries and am thrilled to be one of the artists at the Florida Craftsmen Gallery in St. Petersburg, Artisans on the Ave in Lake Worth, and  at the  OSGS Gallery in the Northwood neighborhood.  My creations have been exhibited in many juried art shows and I was featured as an Emerging Artist at ArtiGras, 2012”.  I can be reached by email at   Irene Jalowayski ijaloway@yahoo.com   or visit my website at www.palmbeachsmashingglass.com

 

Sharon Kurlychek

 

 

“I engaged with the energy of clay in the 70’s when I first learned to to throw pots on a kick wheel at art school in Cleveland, Ohio.  I took more advanced classes (David Vargo)  and the joy of clay settled into by hands.  In the 80’s, I lived in the Dominican Republic, where I taught English. Experimenting with the production of primitive pottery– digging clay deposits from riverbeds, creating glazes from the ashes I collected from a bakery’s wood-fired oven, and firing in open pits was joyful.  Back in the US, I bought an electric kiln, continued my art studies (The Cleveland Institute of Art and Andrea Gill from Alfred University) and began teaching at the Beck Center for the Arts in Lakewood”.  
Sharon Kurlychek

“When I moved to Florida, for subsequent art festivals, I created a line of tropical number tiles. My website, www.islandtiles.com shows 12 designs.  Customers can choose the tiles and colors to place an order for a custom house number tile.  I also do commission work for tile murals and signs, working with designers, HOA’s or home owners, offering color sketches and cost estimates for custom work.  I can be reached through my website or e-mail: islandtiles@bellsouth.net.”
Sharon Kurlychek

” I am continually inspired by fellow clay artists (Betty Wilson and members of the Ceramic League of the Palm Beaches).  My art career has recently spun off in a new direction.  Taking classes (Carla Golembe at the Delray Center for the Arts), spending time in the artsy town of San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, and a mixed media workshop (Dee Roper at La Fabrica Aurora) has had a big influence on the direction of my creativity!  Now I am creating mixed media pieces, acrylic paintings and collages!” 

 

John McCoy

John tells us, “I am a functional potter. In my work, I strive for qualities of simplicity, honesty and  a sense of fluidity. When making my pots, I depend on intuition and feeling, rather than upon conceptual ideas and analysis. Natural and organic objects, along with the varied and rich traditions of ceramics are the main influences of my work. I have a very classical approach to clay, even when combining and altering forms”.
John McCoy

John McCoy

“During the last ten years, I have had the opportunity to put my work in  a wood fired Anagama kiln. I feel my forms have been enhanced and visually strenghthened by the warm colors of the ash deposits and the textures and patterns created by the mark of the fire. This natural process allows the viewer to share my experience  of working with clay, from the moment my hands shape and form the clay, leaving my mark, to the fluidity of the flames that leave their impression on the surface of the pot forever”.

 

If you are an artist who is interested in becoming part of the community of Artisans on the Ave,  there are many options for those who want to work as well as those who prefer not to.  Please send at least 2 jpgs of your work, a short biography and an artist statement to   potteryme@aol.com.

“Keys to the Cities”: Carla Golembe Shows Her Piano Design

 Six months ago, Kathi Kretzer, founder of the Kretzer Piano Music Foundation, announced a new Call to Artists.  “Keys to the Cities” has brought 18 pianos, 18 pianists, 17 artists and 1,584 keys to Palm Beach County!  The Rickie Report sent out the Call to Artists.  This article details the events and celebration for the kick-off of “Keys to the City” and shares the experiences of one of the artists, Carla Golembe.  We hope you will go to see the pianos – the public is welcome to play them, too!

 

 

 

18 Pianos, 18 Pianists, 17 Artists, 1,584 Keys

A Unique Unveiling of

Sight & Sound, Song & Sensation

KEYS TO THE CITIES

Kick-Off Party

 

 

After six long months of colorful creativity, a unique collaboration of sight and sound will be unveiled at last – so let the eye-dazzling and ear-pleasing harmonies begin.  Kathi Kretzer, founder of the Kretzer Piano Music Foundation,  announced that the much-anticipated KEYS TO THE CITIES Kick-Off Party will be held on Friday, November 1, from 7 to 9 p.m., at the Waterfront Lake Pavilion in downtown West Palm Beach.

 

 

At the fun-filled event, the Foundation will unveil 18 different baby grand and upright pianos, all of which have been whimsically designed, each with its own unique theme, by 17 extraordinary local artists.

 

 

A piano owned by the late baseball great Gary Carter has been redone by artist Frank Navarrete in all too fitting Mets motif and dubbed “The Kid.” Artist Sharon Koskoff has reimagined a jazzy-style Grand that she is calling “Knockin’ at Heaven’s Door,” while Nadia Utto‘s piano has an intergalactic look that would float perfectly through the new Sandra Bullock flick, Gravity.

 

 

 

The art students at Watson B. Duncan Middle School and their teacher Courtney Hess have produced a funky “Zentangle Piano,” artist Julie Beaumont‘s Spinet has a recognizable theme of Florida Wildlife, and Eduardo Mendieta‘s Console now sports a child’s face and is titled, “Overlook.”

 

 

Additional piano-painting artists include Liz Brice, Caron Bowman, Karen Chandler, Joseph Dzwill, Silvana Frontera, Carla Golembe, Emmanuel Gonzales, Eric Kucera, Holly Rutchey, Alicia Stamm and Amanda Turner, whose colorful creations run the visual gamut from traditional beauty to wildly offbeat.

 

The official unveiling on November 1 will also include an unforgettable performance by a one-time-only 18 Piano Orchestra with 18 distinguished pianists all playing together: Dr. Robin Arrigo, Ruo Balko, Sandra Baran, Shawn Berry, Jerry Crank, Susan Dahlberg, Copeland Davis, Terrence Dwarika, Jan Fulford, Linda Johnson, Pat Johnson, Linda Jordan, Kathi Kretzer, Monte Lambert, Laurie McDonald, Betsy McHugh, Janet Owens and Michael Yanette.

 

 

Tickets to attend are $100 each, and can be purchased by calling Kretzer Piano Music Foundation at 561.748.0036. The festive event will include Keys To The Cities Cocktails, hors d’oeuvres and a chance to meet and mingle with the artists, the pianists and other music-loving supporters.

 

 

Public Display & Play in Palm Beach County

From November 2-17, the 18 gorgeous pianos will be on public display throughout the county. Among the various locations where visitors can see – and even play! – the “artified” instruments are Arts Garage in Delray Beach, on Worth Avenue in Palm Beach, the Cultural Council headquarters in Lake Worth, Downtown At The Gardens in Palm Beach Gardens, Kretzer Piano in Jupiter, and at assorted spots in West Palm Beach, including City Center, CityPlace, Clematis Street by Palm Beach Dramaworks, the Kravis Center for the Performing Arts, the South Florida Science Center and Aquarium and the Waterfront.

 

“Professional pianists and music groups are scheduled to perform concerts on the pianos while they are on display, but the most fun will be in children (up to age 94) sitting down and plunking away. Our main message is that everyone is invited and everyone can play,” says Kretzer, who developed the program after learning of similar successful campaigns in London and New York City.

 

“This KEYS TO THE CITIES campaign fits perfectly with the mission of the Kretzer Piano Music Foundation, which is to provide music lessons and performing opportunities to everyone, especially underprivileged children,” she adds.

 

A “piano buddy” at each site will cover the instruments at night and during inclement weather. At the conclusion of the public display period, all of the pianos will be donated to local children’s charities and community organizations where they will continue to enrich the lives of people for years to come.

 

The 18 used pianos were donated for this campaign by the Kretzer Piano Music Foundation and by Carlos Aquino, Jackie Badome (in memory of her husband Frank), the family of Gary Carter, Cheryl Harrigan, Nancy Sale Johnson, the Lighthouse for the Blind, Opportunity, Inc., Sheryl Purcell, Paula Rodgers, Jamie Romeo, Karen Sade, Tony Tamaccio and Jan Young.

 

Sponsors of the first annual KEYS TO THE CITIES promotion include the City of West Palm Beach, Jerry’s Artarama, D.C. Moore Piano Movers, Arts Garage, Pete Bozetarnik, CPA, Guia Brown (Raymond James, Palm Beach), CityPlace, Cultural Council of Palm Beach County, Downtown At The Gardens, Burt Handelsman (Love Realty), Kravis Center for the Performing Arts, Kretzer Piano, Janet and Bob Nakushian, Northern Palm Beach County Youth Foundation and Palm Beach Dramaworks.

 

 

Carla Golembe is an award winning artist, illustrator, author and teacher.  Her work is shown at galleries throughout the United States.

Collections include Hyatt Corp, Pan Pacific Hotels, Sheppard Pratt Hospital, Medical College of Virginia Hospitals, Worcester Art Museum (Worcester, MA), Academy Art Museum (Easton, MD), Boston Public Library, University College of University of Maryland, Montgomery County MD Art in Public Places and others.  She has received artist residencies from the Hambidge Center (Rabun Gap, GA); Altos de Chavon (Dominican Republic) and Kalani Honua (Hawaii).  

 

Carla teaches at  The Art School of the Boca Raton Museum of Art (561 392-2503) and  Delray Beach Center for the Arts (561 243-7922 (x 317 or x478).

 

TRR:  The Rickie Report spoke to Carla about her design:

CG:

I have three bird feeders in my backyard, outside my studio.   These birds have captured my imagination and have wound up in a number of my arwork pieces.    I had just finished working on a “Tree of Life series” for Kolbo, a Judaica Gallery in Boston.  I was inspired to create something with my “friends”, the birds.   I  wanted the design to be joyous and beautiful because it is going to be shared with a charity and the public.

 

TRR:    The imagery came from her Trees of Life and the bird feeders’ visitors. She included angel heads to give a sense of love, peace and beauty.   The final piano is quite different from the sketch although it follows the same theme.

"Piano of Joy" Design

“Piano of Joy” Original Design

 

The shape of the piano that is different from the original sketch and Carla realized that it needed a background color.  So, there were some changes made, but she stayed with her original theme.

The piano’s surface had to be cleaned of all dust, especially in the back where there is a lattice work. Then, Carla sanded the entire piano and applied two coats of primer.

Carla applied a few coats of paint to suggest sky and clouds. She used different techniques such as scumbling, blending and layering to produce the background for her artwork.

Once the background was dry, Carla was able to sketch out her design with chalk.

When Carla paints the imagery, she does so with numerous layers of paint, starting with dark underpainting.

Here is Carla’s guard cat, Vinny, making sure no one touches the piano.  Even though there were birds nearby on the piano, Vinny never tried to attack them!

Carla tells The Rickie Report, “This has been a fun and interesting journey.  I like projects with deadlines and was able to immerse myself in the process, which took two and a half weeks.  I loved the process and especially love that I’ll get to see what the other artists have done!  Not only will the pianos be in public spaces where people can play them, but ultimately will end up in a children’s charity or a community center, where others will truly appreciate them.

 

TRR:  We are not showing you the finished piano – you will need to go and see it!  Enjoy!!!
