All About Water VII, and I'm IN!

Today, I went visiting the artists studios at Erector Square, as part of New Haven City-Wide Open Studios. It's always fun to visit friends in their working spaces, see their newer works, and meet new people and their works... Overall, this whole Open Studios event, it's a very enriching experience that I wouldn't want to miss.

For those of you who are not familiar with Erector Square, it used to be a toy factory that was converted into artists studios and commercial spaces. It has about eight buildings, all connected through hallways and stairways all over the place. Kind of like a maze, but they're good with the signage so one doesn't get lost in it!!

Among the friends I visited today are: encaustic artists Binnie Birstein, and Maria Lara (whom I always wanted to meet and as it turned out, we already new each other!!! Can you believe it? LOL!); printmakers Barbara Harder, and Irene Miller; paper artists Jennifer Davies, and Karen Wheeler; Rashmi Talpade who does intricate collages, drawings, installations... and last but not least, my friend, ceramic artist Linda Giannelli, who makes the most beautiful small sculptures depicting mainly animals; just to name a few...

So, you can only imagine what is like to be there, at Erector Square. There's so much art to see, I felt like I was running like my son's hamster through all these hallways and stairways. All of the sudden, my phone rings... It was someone from Gallery One in Old Saybrook anouncing that the 2 artworks I had submitted for their upcoming show where IN!! I was so happy with the news... but wait a minute, the opening is tomorrow afternoon and I need to invite my friends and family to come!!!! They really made me run today!!!

I'm finally home, thanks to the Social Media, I was able to invite as many people as I could through Facebook, posted the event on my Facebook Page (by the way, if you go to my page don't forget to press the LIKE buttom!!), sent invitations through Twitter and text messages... So hopefully I'm covered, and I might get some of my friends to stop by the opening tomorrow. I don't know what I would have done without technology today!!!

If you're reading this and is not too late, please come to our opening!

Tomorrow, Sunday, October 16th, from 3 - 5pm


Where? at GalleryOne in the Clayhouse
Located at: 665 Boston Post Road at Elm Street (Old Saybrook Shopping Center), Old Saybrook, CT

The Affordable Art Fair-Fall Edition 2011

Despite the long days, the traffic to get there (police had many streets closed due to the United Nations meeting), and the never ending pouring rain on Friday that left our hallways pretty empty (only the more adventurous dare to come, thank you!!!)... my first participation in the Affordable Art Fair was a success. I really enjoyed meeting new people, made interesting connections and to top it off, 6 of my artworks were sold!!!

 Here are pictures from the artworks sold at the fair:
 The Seasons Series: SPRING (top left), SUMMER (top right), AUTUMN (bottom left), and WINTER (bottom right)
Mixed media with Encautic on panel and each measures 12" x 12"

These were my latest artworks finished right before the Art Fair. They reflect my new direction, so I'm very pleased they were the first to get sold. I also sold...

Open Doors of Milford, 2011 - Charity Auction

I'm currently participating in the Downtown Milford 4th Annual Open Doors and Windows Art Exhibit and charity auction. This exhibition is presented by the Downtown Milford Business Association, and this is their biggest year yet with 37 Artists represented, using recycled doors and windows.

The opening happened last month during Oyster Eve, a traditional summer festival in the town of Milford, CT. During all this time, the doors/windows have been showcased across downtown Milford, thanks to the sponsorship of the local stores, restaurants and businesses, that hosted the artists' creations.

With my creation, "Deconstruction," at the front of my door's sponsor,
the unique store, ARTIFAX

Picture taken by artist, Rosalva Saenz, who also painted doors for the event.

I was thrilled to create a door for this especial exhibition because it will be auctioned off, and proceeds will go to the Domestic Violence Services of Greater New Haven. The mission of Domestic Violence Services is to create an environment that supports individual safety and breaks the cycle of domestic violence.

Here's a close-up of the door I created using materials found during the deconstruction of my home and recycled into a new life, enjoy it!

DECONSTRUCTION

(c) Corina S. Alvarezdelugo
ABOUT MY DOOR: Living in a construction site for over 20 months already, while remodeling our home, taught me how many times we ought to struggle through the discomforts of a “deconstruction” in order to “reconstruct”. This can be applied to a broader spectrum. Not only to the physical state of remodeling a building to make it better and fulfill our needs, but also to a more personal level, as a mean to better our lives. When we find ourselves in struggling situations that are hard to break from it’s always better to take the chance and “deconstruct” what we are familiar with to “reconstruct” a better life for us and for our love ones… regardless of the uncertainties ahead.

The doors and windows creations are gorgeous this year, so don't miss your chance to come back home with an unique piece of artwork, with the added bonus of having helped a great cause!

Want to preview the doors/windows before the auction? Just click
HERE!

...and don't miss the ART AUCTION if you're close by,

WHEN: this coming Sunday,  September 18th

WHERE: at the Milford Fine Arts Center, 40 Railroad Avenue, Milford, CT 06460-3332

TIME: Doors open at 4:00 pm and the auction starts promptly at 5:00 pm.
Refreshments and wine will be served throughout the evening for registered bidders.

A sneak peek to our Postcard!!

We have our postcard ready for Perspective/Perspectivas, an exhibition I'm curating for Arte Gallery, and it's going to the printers tomorrow!!!

Here's a preview just for you...

If you're close by, send me your address and I'll mail you one...


Want to know more about this exhibition?

Arte, Inc invited me to come back and curate another exhibition in their beautiful gallery, as I curated one for them in 2009.

Arte, Inc is a non-profit grassroots organization dedicated to Promoting Latino Art, Culture & Talent in the state of Connecticut, USA. They establish partnerships with community agencies and groups to improve quality of life of residents. Arte also assists artists, organizes programs, events, shows and exhibits. They develop and run effective youth programming to engage children and mold better citizens, and most importantly it provides education.

I feel Connecticut artists with Latin roots bring different perspectives to their artistic works, so it is with great pleasure that I'm putting together a group of these talented people to show the public their particular views... and here are the artists I have selected to participate: Sikiu Perez, Margarita Rodriguez-Lansberg and MariaCorina Alvarezdelugo will come back to Arte to show you their new works again this year; along with three new artists, Millie Donovan, Fernando Garcia, and Noe Jimenez... they are all very different from each other and I'm sure the public will enjoy their art greatly!!


Please, save the date for our Opening Reception: Friday, April 22 from 5:30-8 pm.
Live Music by "El Duo Flamenco de los Hermanos Ramos" & refreshments.


Gallery hours: During this exhibition, Arte Gallery will be open to the public Saturdays & Sundays, Noon to 4:00PM, from April 23rd through May 21st.

5th Internat'l Encaustic Conference

My artwork, MEDALLION is currently featured at the Fifth Internat'l Encaustic Conference 's home page. Please visit it, enjoy the view and learn more about the conference and everything the have to offer... I'm looking forward to take part in such an exciting event!!

Making my case...

I don't know if you're familiar with the reality of the artists these days, but our expenses could rise up very quickly if we want to make it in this profession. I'm not talking only about the materials one needs to produce the actual artwork, which I think you might all be aware of. I’m talking about classes to better our techniques or to expand our possibilities; I’m also talking about entry fees to most shows we participate in, specially juried exhibitions, with the added risk that we might not even enter in the exhibition. Transportation to and from exhibiting spaces, shipping costs, marketing strategies, etc. all adds up.

©Corina S. Alvarezdelugo
I’ve been lucky enough to be able to support myself so far, with my husband’s help, and the sales of my works. But this year along, besides the entry fees to all the exhibitions I usually try my luck at, and the sculpture studio hours I pay for every trimester, and the construction of my new studio/gallery, which is almost done (woohoo!); I’m taking a weekend workshop in NYC next weekend, and I’ll be participating in the 5th International Encaustic Conference in Province Town, MA in June. For this conference I’m paying for hotel, meals, transportation and two post conference workshops at the Truro Center for the Arts, to take advantage of the special opportunity.  For this reason, when I found out Michelle Belto’s workshop, which I really want to take, is been offered at The Encaustic Center in Texas, I thought I might get a chance to make it if I make an appeal to the generosity of FRIENDS, FAMILY and FOLLOWERS, to help me travel to Dallas, TX to take her workshop. I’m sure this new venture will push even further my creative possibilities.

You can read more about this appeal and the things I do on my previous post.

You may ask. What’s in it for me? Besides helping me make better art for you to enjoy, I will raffle two artworks amongst the donors that donate $20 or more to my cause. One of the artworks was gently donated by the own Michelle Belto to support my appeal, and the other one from yours truly to thank you! I will be making this piece using the newly learned techniques.

Besides, everyone, whether you gave $1 or $1,000 will get an invitation to my next exhibition following the workshop, so you can see first hand what you have helped me to accomplish, and your names will be listed as sponsors, unless you want to remain anonymous, of course.

Another opportunity I can offer to you is to list your name with a link to your website, blog, twitter… here. Just let me know.


A big THANK YOU in advance!









18.2.11

Please support my cause!

There is a workshop, by Michelle Belto, I'm dying to take, unfortunately, when she gives it close to where I live, is at the same time of my son's high school graduation and unfortunately I can't be in two places at once...
©Michelle Belto
Well, they are now offering this workshop at the Encaustic Center in Texas, as well. The workshop is call: From Pulp to Painting: Explorations in Paper and Wax. It's a three-day workshop and the cost is  $385, not including airfare tickets (back and forth), accommodations, and meals expenses, and transportation.

This dream of mine will only be possible with your support to get me there and back, and I will be extremely grateful. To show you my gratitude, I will raffle amongst all of you, one of the artworks I will make using the new learned techniques. Additionally, I will be posting as I learn during the workshop, to keep you all informed, and I will mail you an invitation to my next exhibition following the workshop, so you can see first hand what you help me achieve.

NEW!! Michelle Belto has donated one of her artworks to my cause (please read her nice comment bellow, or click on the live link to read it in her blog). So, if you donate $20.00 or more to my cause, your name will be entered into a drawing to win her painting.

For those of you reading my blog for the first time, I am a mixed media painter and sculptor with a full-time studio practice and every post here represents a significant expenditure of time, photo editing and writing. I keep my own website and Facebook Fan Page. I send out a monthly Art Newsletter to my email subscribers, with invitations to exhibitions and especial events; as well as occasional invitations by regular mail. I am in Twitter keeping my followers with my latest news and giving them a sneak peak into my artistic process with up to the minute information as I am producing a new artwork. All these marketing strategies require my commitment to deliver promptly, as I thrive to keep you all informed in all I do.

The same approach I give to marketing strategies and social media, I give to all I do, always learning new ideas and techniques that expand my creative possibilities while creating new artworks for you to enjoy! For this is that I'm appealing to your generosity...

Any amount is welcome, $20.00 or $1.00, and will help support my efforts. Please, feel free to donate a larger amount if you have just received a grant funding, an inheritance, a raise, or just feel I deserve a little more! Just click the Donate button below.

A big THANK YOU in advance!

From Sweet to Bitter: 2 projects, 2 completely different themes, 2 extremes

I'm currently working on two projects at the same time. One about bees and honey; and the other one about how time pass by for women in jail... From sweet to bitter...oh my! Let's see what comes out from this!!!

Project 1: Beeline: it's all about the bee 


This summer, I'll be participating in the FIFTH INTERNATIONAL ENCAUSTIC CONFERENCE, for which I'm so excited, and one of the benefits for conferees is to be able to enter our work at a special Juried Exhibition called Beeline. This exhibition will be juried by Francine D’Olimpio, director of Kobalt Gallery in Provincetown, MA, and host it in her gallery. Of course, this doesn't guarantee that my work will get selected, but you know how I love a challenge!!
 


The guidelines for this exhibition is that one has to incorporate
encaustic (or mixed-media encaustic) to paintings, sculptures and works on paper that relate directly or indirectly to the theme of bees, abejas, abeilles. 


Some examples they gave us to get us inspired are: colony, hexagon, hive, honey, honeycomb, industriousness, insect, nectar, queen, skep, sting, sweet; the bees in an entomological sense (order: Hymenoptera),  and a historical sense (apiarists believe that Egyptians were the first beekeepers); and even the overblown hairdo from the Sixties. So, as you can see there is a lot of information to get our inspiration flowing and my brain had already started the creative process, and tomorrow I'll begin putting it down into a tangible reality.


Project 2: Time In: A Collaboration

On the other hand, I was recently invited to participate in a unique collaborative project involving Expressiones Cultural Center, Mitchell College, and the Judy Dworin Performance Project (JDPP). This project is made possible in part by a grant from the Connecticut Commission on Culture and Tourism.

The staging at Mitchell College of Judy Dworin's compelling work Time In, a signature piece based upon the lives of women imprisoned in the York Correctional Institution in Niantic, Connecticut, that will take place on Sunday, April 17th at the College. Simultaneously, a thematic art exhibition, mounted both at Expressiones and at Mitchell, will explore visual interpretations of the experience and the broader implications of incarceration.

They asked me to create to artworks related to the theme. As I'm sure you all know by know that I can't say "no" to a challenge, I'm already busy, researching on the theme, to come out with two artworks for this exhibition. 

FROM SWEET TO BITTER... Stay tuned, so you don't miss what comes out of these challenges!!!

Undine, the water nympth

I have an oil painting I had started over a year ago while taking a life painting class with the amazing painter, Chris Zhang at the Lyme Art Association. I was working with oils on a 20" x 30" linen canvas I streached myself, and even though I applied Gesso to the surface, I had trouble getting the oil paint into the canvas. It seamed as it was absorbing the paint. To make things worse, I could only work with that model for one class, so I never finished it.

Since I'm constantly experimenting and trying new things, I decided to take this unfinished painting out of the "closet" and worked on the figure in a way I've never done before. I was going to work on the figure, as traditional painters would do, and I will use mixed media to work on the background, to give it a more contemporary feeling.

I started working on the figure using oil pastels.



The problem was that the posture of the model seamed uncomfortable to me. So I came up with the idea of creating a story around her and made her into a water nymph, Undine! (click on Undine to learn more about the German romance that inspired me)


Then, I glued different textured papers into the background, to add some layering effect and dimension. I divided the background into her two worlds: water and earth...


I then did some image transferring to tell her story:


*The image on the top right, is a transfer from a copy of John William Waterhouse's representation of the French Undine, circa 1872. He portrays Undine as she comes out of the water...

*The image in the top center, is from a photograph of my grandparents, the day of their wedding in the 1940's. I added a frame to it, to recreate the era.

*The image on the bottom left is from a vintage postcard I received during a paper swap! There are also images from stamps and letter writings.

Later on, I applied Shellac to Waterhouse's Undine, in order to make the transferred a little bit more translucent. Started adding watercolor and oil crayon to the paper collage in the background, while continuing on my drawing of the main figure.


The grasses on the bottom right were bothering me, so I started adding oil pastels to make them blend more with the background...


I'm almost done with this mixed media painting. I will finish it tomorrow and post the last picture as soon as I can...

Happy New Year 2011 and overview of 2010

Happy New Year to all my readers. I wish you all health, peace, prosperity... and tons of creativity!!!!

Here's my 2010 year in review, enjoy!

In spite of the ongoing construction of Corina's new Studio/Gallery, 2010 was a very productive year for her. She received invitations to show her artworks; her works were juried into several exhibitions, and received more awards to add to her collection.

She began the year with her largest solo exhibition up to date. A large selection of her mixed media artworks, 49 to be exact, and 16 of her sculptures were on display at the beautiful Paul Mellon Arts Center Gallery, in Wallingford, CT. Corina was also invited by curator, Camilla Cook, to showcase her sculpture, SPIKEY, in "Fresh Pics", an exhibition of contemporary art at the Ridgefield Guild of Artists.

In March, Corina was invited, as guest artist, to exhibit her sculptures and mixed media artworks at GalleryOne at the Clay House in Old Saybrook, CT. Also, while Corina desired to donate her sculpture, AWARENESSS, for the research on Dense Breast Tissue, she was interviewed by TV News Anchor, Ann Nyberg, for her blog, Annie Mame.com

May was very exciting for Corina, her sculpture, RHINO, was juried by Jeffrey Mueller (Gallery Director at Silvermine Guild Arts Center) into the "Small Works" Show at the Mamaroneck Artsits Guild in New York. In addition, two of her sculptures were juried by the nationally recognized artist and educator, Alyssa Monks, into the "Connecticut Women Artists' Juried Exhibition" at the John Slade Ely House, Center for Contemporary Art in New Haven, CT, and both of her sculptures received awards; a Third Place Prize Award for GOLDEN PIG and the People's Choice Award for HUMAN RIGHTS. As well as an excellent review by the juror. To top it off, two of Corina's newest textured paintings, UNSETTLED WATERS and GENTLE FLOW, were selected amongst Best in Painting at "The Healing Power of Art: Positive Art That Uplift The Spirit," an online juried exhibition presented by the Manhattan Arts International. It was juried by Joanie San Chirico (signature Artist Member of the Noyes Museum of Art, Oceanville, NJ,) and Renée Phillips (Founder and Director of Manhattan Arts International and member of the International Association of Art Critics.)

During June, four of Corina's artworks, two of her sculptures and two of her mixed media paintings, were selected by Bina Sarkar Ellias (founder and editor of International Gallerie Magazine) for "Transitions", a virtual exhibition of visual, literary, and performing arts; presented by The Pen & Brush Inc, NYC. Besides, two of Corina's sculptures were juried by Julia Pavone (Director/Curator of the Alexey von Schlippe Gallery of Art at the University of Connecticut's Avery Point Campus since 1992) into the "18th Annual Juried exhibition of the Society of Connecticut Sculptors," at the Alexey Von Schlippe Gallery in Groton, CT

Picture taken by Milford Photo




Sponsored by the Downtown Milford Business Association, Corina was invited, along with other artists, to create an artwork on a recycled door. In the summer, completed works were displayed at the sponsoring businesses throughout downtown Milford, and in September the "doors" were auctioned off and a percentage of the sales was donated to this year's local charity, the Milford Fine Arts Council. Additionally, two of Corina's sculptures were juried into "Latin Views, the 5th Biennial," presented the Latin Network for the Visual Arts, at the Alexey Von Schlippe Gallery in Groton, CT. In this exhibition, she had the opportunity to meet artists from many nations where the romance languages are spoken.

In October, Corina participated in the Sixth Annual Water Show, "All About Water VI," presented by the Tracy Art Center at GalleryOne at the Clay House, in Old Saybrook, CT, where she received the Second Place Award for her encaustic mixed media painting, KEEP ON SWIMMING.

Once again, she took part on the Annual New Haven's City-Wide Open Studios, from Erector Square, as well as in the Autumn Arts Trail sponsored by the Arts Center of Killingworth, at the Clinton Landing. During this last event, Corina was interviewed and you can watch it HERE

And last but not least, Corina was invited to showcase her artworks in "Winter Lights," presented by Expressiones Cultural Center in New London, CT, since last November. Tomorrow, Saturday, January 8th, will be the last day to view this exhibition.

In 2010, Corina donated 3 of her paintings, and specially made other 3, to help non-profit organizations in their fundraisers.

She's been also donating 50% of the sales of the pocket mirrors with the printed image of her sculpture, "Awareness", to the Downey Sisters' Fund FOR BRCA MUTATION AWARENESS AND EDUCATION. This fund was established by Phebe and Frederick Downey, to honor their daughters: Ann Downey Little · Margaret Downey Hardy · Katherine Downey Berges · Martha Downey Lemp; and it's used to educate the public and the medical community about the genetic risk of breast and ovarian cancer. You can read more about this HERE

Corina published a coffee table book with beautiful quality images of her mixed media paintings and collages and it's for sale:
Take a Look! 

For the second year in a row, my wesite, www.corinadotdash.com, received the ArtMajeur Silver Award.


Corina has been invited again to curate an exhibition at the Arte Inc Gallery in New Haven, during the month of June. She's receiving invitations to present her works in upcoming exhibitions as well, and she'll be letting you know about them as they get closer.
