Lucio Chiurulla, Master Italian Sculptor

 

 

The Lighthouse ArtCenter is excited to announce the two-week stone carving workshop by Italian sculptor, Lucio Chiurulla in March 2019. Mr. Chiurulla will be in Tequesta from his native Italy for the two-week workshop.  The workshop is from March 25 – April 5, 2019. This course will focus on marble and stone, two materials that are still carved employing the traditional technique that has been used for many centuries, especially in Italy, since the Greeks and the Romans, and even before them.

 

 

A sculptor of twenty-five year experience with marbles, granites and stones, Mr. Chiurulla studied at the Art School and Accademia of Belle Arti in Perugia (Italy), did his own research on Ancient Roman, Greek and Medieval statues and mosaics acquiring specific marble carving techniques. He currently has his studio near the Trasimeno Lake in the Italian region of Umbria, where he lives and works.

 

 

The workshop program will revolve around a few basic concepts and rules regarding the making of a stone sculpture in the traditional way, using the chisel and the mallet. You will be practicing a technique that has been the same for many centuries – if not millenniums – but that can now be widely reinterpreted and adjusted in the light of modern conception of “art” and the personal feelings of each sculpture.  

 

 

Each student will be provided a carving table, a piece of Italian soft stone, access to electricity and will work under a covered tent. Demonstrations and group/individual instruction will be provided of the step by step process of the stone removal process, through sanding and polishing and making a finished sculpture including a base.create your own

Lunch can be arranged each day. Kits of sculpting tools will also be available for sale in the school store. All levels from beginners to advanced welcome.

MEET   THE   ARTIST:

 

 

 

 

“Self Portrait” by Mimi McCallum

 

 

After years of creating visually recognizable imagery Mimi McCallum has taken a new direction!  Her new path is taking her into the world of abstract.  The pieces are painted with cold wax medium and oil paint.  Oil pastels, graphite oil sticks and other medium find their way into the mix.  Mimi’s brushes have been laid aside, as the paint is applied to canvas or cradled board with an assortment of tools: squeezes, spatulas, knives, rollers, printing implements, anything is in the game!

 

“Get Crackin” by Mimi McCallum

 

 

This luscious medium can be layered and layered, carved into and scraped away creating interesting textures and fascinating color blends.  The paintings have a history that is revealed and interwoven into the final image. Her one requirement is that the painting will stand compositionally from any direction, so it may be hung and viewed in personal preference.   Mimi’s paintings are intuitive and spontaneous with no initial plan.  Her “New Directions” take her on the creative journey, and she invites us along with her!

 

 

  “In The Park” by Mimi McCallum

 

 

 

Mimi received her Master of Art Education from Florida International University in Miami, her BA from Montana State in Bozeman MT.  She completed the Florida art certification from FSU in Tampa. Mimi attended Anchorage West High, where her father was an FBI agent.  She is married with two children and two grandchildren.

 

“Untitled” by Mimi McCallum

 

 

Mimi puts her talent to work in her studio in Jensen Beach, FL, and exhibits throughout Florida and the Bahamas.  She tells The Rickie Report, “Through my art I aspire to capture moments in time that relate to memories that touch our hearts. I aspire to create images of objects, places and figures with pleasing shapes and energetic color.”  Mimi’s new work was recently exhibited at Art Synergy 2018.

"Black and White" by Steve Whitlock

“Black and White” by Steve Whitlock

 

“As a wildlife artist and marine illustrator I enjoy a rare experience, someone who truly loves his work. My many years as a fishing guide and sportsman led me to the most rewarding and fun career anyone could ask for. If I paint it, I’ve done it, truth in the artwork is very important to me. As a true Florida native, I have over 40 years experience fishing, hunting and exploring the wild places most people never see. I hope you enjoy viewing my artwork. If you get a chance, stop by one of the art shows or tournaments and say hi. Tight lines, Steve”.
