Art was the perfect opportunity for the students of Chemainus High School to deploy their talents beyond the classroom and into the community to spread the joy of Christmas.

Students working with art teacher Rhona Kane went out for two days last week and again on Monday to dress up some of the windows of businesses around Chemainus as a gesture of kindness and positive action during the holiday season.

The idea arose out of Principal Lori Hryniuk’s desire for the community at large to see the artistic abilities of the students reflected in their work within the school.

“She thought we did such a good job there that we could take it out to the community and do something good for everyone,” Kane said.

“This is great news for the youth in our community,” said Hryniuk.

“I contacted (the president) Chris Istace and he got me into the Chemainus Business Association and it started from there.”

“They then emailed all the companies on our behalf,” Kane added.

One company, By The Bay Lavender, even offered an in-kind donation as a thank you.

“We had about 11 companies that wanted to do this,” Kane said. “We didn’t have enough time to hang out with everyone, but we did our best.”

As the students did the work on site, “everyone who passed was just in awe of what they were doing,” Kane observed. “You could really see the community coming together. “

“It was fun,” said Crimson McClellan, a grade 12 art student. “We were able to go out into the community, meet nice people. I don’t go out very often to Chemainus because I come from Thetis (island).

“Painting the interior is awesome. We would draw it freehand or with a stencil and place it against the window. Shopkeepers loved it, really grateful for all the decorations.

“It was nice to discover the Chemainus center,” added Sarah Ladot, a grade 12 international student from Belgium. “It was nice to use different techniques with paint, pen, different colors. I have never done that.

The students have previously teamed up for a competition to determine the best Christmas artwork in the school. Ashley Loeffen, Laura Rundquist and James Bélanger were the overwhelming winners in a school vote for their Winter Wonderland exhibit.

Now that the school has diversified, there is a desire to start over.

“It worked so well,” Kane said. “With more time it will be bigger and better.”

Victoria University of Wellington will lose some of its mana by auctioning off a Don Binney artwork created specifically for the university, according to a Wellington art writer.

The work – Mana Island – is up for auction after 50 years of display at the university. It was painted by Binney in 1971 as a thank you for the loan of studio space while he worked as a visiting lecturer on campus.

The painting was a collaborative effort between Binney and the students who brought their own ideas and inputs to create the impressive 2.6m x 3.6m artwork which shows Mana Island and the surrounding hills of the port of Porirua.

Wellington artist, poet and essayist Greg O’Brien told the Herald the work was unique.

“It’s Binney’s only work that can be considered a mural – it was inspired by his time in Mexico, so it’s big, bold, graphic and remarkable.

“It was painted for a public building – you can see it from 100 yards away. It was painted for Victoria.”

He says the sale is “a sign of the times” and in his eyes is “a bit sad”.

“It’s always sad when a piece of public art leaves the place it was made for… the place loses mana. When things are taken out of context, there’s always a sense of loss but of course buildings change or get demolished over time so that’s not to say it shouldn’t be sold.”

Nicholas Green is chairman of Victoria’s University Students’ Association Trust, which is handling the sale.

He told the Herald that Binney’s work had been purchased by the Victoria University Students’ Association (VUWSA), who had in turn donated it to the trust – but it was decided that it would not was more in the long-term interest of the trust, nor of the students. association to keep him in his place.

“We spoke to [Victoria University of Wellington] to sell it to them, but as they said, times are tight and they couldn’t afford it.”

The artwork is currently up for auction with an estimated price of between $500,000 and $800,000, but Green says it’s “everyone’s guess” what it will really sell for.

He told the Herald that selling the art was in the best interest of the student body and in fact it could also benefit the work.

“It actually has a bit of sun damage from where it sat…it’s a beautiful job, we hope to see it in good hands and as we say we have VUWSA’s best interests at heart. .”

Each also gave information on the different media used and the many projects they carried out during the year. All students are in the Gifted and Talented class, also taught by Bronstad. Pictured, left to right, Shaylee Edmiston, Brynn Schorsch, Sloane Schorsch and Rylan Edmiston. In the back are Principal Assistant Renee Royal, Principal Kim Camarillo and Teacher Jenna Bronstad. DIANA GUTHRIE | PLEASANTON EXPRESS

Elementary art students were recognized at the Monday night meeting of the Jourdanton School Board. Teacher Jenna Bronstad explained that her K-5 art classes experimented with different artistic mediums, such as oil pastels and watercolors. Each student introduced themselves and showed an example of their work. Shaylee Edmiston and Brynn Schorsch are in fifth year, Sloane Schorsch is in third year, and Rylan Edmiston is in fourth year. All four students are also enrolled in Bronstad’s Gifted and Talented program.

Jourdanton Education Foundation

Stephanie Collins, President of the Foundation, presented the trustees with last year’s annual report which included what they had done, how much money they had raised and how it had been spent. They raised over $ 57,000 and over $ 27,000 of that went back to school in the form of 14 grants. These funds were donated for math, social studies, world maps for junior high school history, outdoor play landscapes, science equipment, photography and for updating some farm equipment. . Fourteen thousand dollars was spent on the summer reading program and they spent $ 600 on gifts for new teachers. Another $ 7,000 was used for expenses including insurance, advertising and fundraising.

They are interested in repeating or expanding any program that has been proven to work. The organization is working with a grant writer to reach outside the region for donations, not wanting to put too much pressure on the community, which has been so generous. Their focus will be on STEM and literacy. The goal is to impact all students, provide them with a real-world experience to help them grow and help them be ready to work after graduation.

ALS Assessment

Assistant Superintendent Pepper Jo Bauerle reviewed the annual evaluation of the ESL program and the success of the students participating in it. Last year 3.1% of students were from ESL and 51.8% were from economically disadvantaged people. There are 44 students in the program, with one student who has passed the TELPAS assessment. There was no data for students last year due to COVID. Students are assessed on their ability to listen, speak and write. Kindergarten to Grade 5 had 28% beginners, 41% intermediate, 23% advanced, and 8% advanced high. Students in Grades 3 to 8 rated 6% Beginners, 35% Intermediate, 44% Advanced, and 15% Advanced Advanced. All state-certified ESL teachers receive a stipend of $ 1,000 and are required to complete professional development. The district receives $ 3,000 from Title III through Region 20, which was used to purchase Rosetta Stone for additional student aid. The state gives $ 21,275 and local funds $ 27,206.

Closed session

Administrators went behind closed doors at 7:47 p.m. to consult with a lawyer regarding the school’s dress code and to consider hiring a reading intervention teacher.

They returned at 9:08 p.m. No action has been taken regarding the dress code. The innovative teacher strategies as presented were endorsed by Nicole Rakowitz as a motion and Phillip Netardus in support. All voted for Vance Jupe, Rita Munoz, Celia Chapa and Greg Vyvlecka. President Barbara Peeler was present but did not vote. As recommended, they unanimously approved the hiring of Rhonda Lawson as a reading intervention teacher to bridge the education gap during COVID. She has been approved for a 2021-2022 professional contract which will be paid by ESSER (Federal Emergency Relief for Elementary and Secondary Schools) funds.

Consent agenda

Peeler read the business office report which shows a total investment of $ 13,254,575 and a monthly tax collection of $ 436,496.48. Checks issued for the month amounted to $ 369,979.28. A motion was made to approve the agenda, including the minutes of the last meeting and the payment of invoices. It was adopted unanimously.

New business

Payment of the conflict of interest invoices was approved, with Peeler and Vyvlecka abstaining.

A public hearing to discuss the district’s financial management report and the top rating by the Texas Financial Integrity Rating System was scheduled for 6 p.m. on Dec. 13, with the regular meeting starting immediately thereafter.

Superintendent Theresa McAllister has reviewed some of the provisions of the Open Meetings Act, which is done periodically. Certain questions arise concerning the number of directors at social meetings and what constitutes a quorum. If they’re not discussing business in public, that’s okay. A majority is also clarified as four out of seven or five out of nine, regardless of vacancies. Closed-door meetings can be arranged to discuss with a lawyer, personnel matters and the purchase of property.

The canvassing of the votes for the November 2 election was scheduled for Monday November 15 at 6.30 p.m. They will also reorganize the board at that time.

There was a discussion about buying a tractor with tools for the maintenance department. Several offers were received: John Deere, Bill’s Tractor and Kabota. The item was dropped off until they could get an offer from Tuttle as well.

Superintendent’s Report

McAllister announced that the group qualified for the state competition and did very well.

The school organized a Boofest, with around 190 parents in attendance. The guests dressed up as characters from books and read to the students. She expressed her appreciation for the community’s help and generosity for the event.

Additionally, she accepted Peggy Georg’s resignation and said they would likely be looking for an agriculture teacher in the spring.

Meeting adjourned at 9.40 p.m.

The festival will take place daily at the OpenShutters factory on Hereford St, Berkeley Vale from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Art @ Work founder Marion Mikkelsen said the event was a celebration of creativity.

“This year we have about 36 painters, printers, potters, glassmakers and woodworkers who come to show their work and give demonstrations to the community.

“We have worked with our artists throughout the year and are delighted to be able to provide them with the opportunity to meet the community.

“The Art @ Work event pushes the boundaries of traditional art exhibitions.

“Artists, community and businesses come together in a working factory not only to show and sell their work, but also to share their secrets through interactions, demonstrations and discussions,” Mikkelsen said.

2021 marks the festival’s fifth year and Mikkelsen said the community is in awe of the event every year.

“They walk into this working factory with all these wonderful works of art and performances by various artists.

“On Saturday and Sunday we will have our interactive painting where the artists will encourage the community to get creative and get involved.

“The artists will also do demonstrations of painting, pottery and printmaking,” Mikkelsen said.

Central Coast Council and other local businesses such as Mariners Medical Center, Aubrey Brown Lawyers, Wyong Leagues Club Group, Stone Real Estate and Fox Group will support the event, help organize and promote the event, as well as sponsor artist awards such as the People’s Choice and Artist’s Challenge awards.

They also sponsor performances and the Lucky Door Prize.

“We’re giving the artists a challenge, last year it was COVID, and the artists all walk into a room, and the winner got a cash prize.

“This year the theme is the novelty they challenged themselves with during COVID, people did puzzles or rode their bikes for the first time and let their hair grow crazy,” Mikkelsen said.

Mikkelsen also said she is looking for new companies to sponsor the event.

Anyone interested in supporting Art @ Work can contact Mikkelsen at artatwork19@gmail.com.

Islamabad: Anthropologist Samar Minallah Khan has won the Commonwealth Innovation Award for successfully using truck art to highlight the country’s social issues, particularly the denial of the rights of women and children.

“Our fleet of trucks traveled across Pakistan, displaying messages about the basic rights of girls, especially their right to education, inheritance and protection,” Samar said. at ‘The News’.

According to her, she is one of 15 people from Commonwealth countries to have been honored for providing innovative solutions to pressing development challenges. The winning innovations are divided into five thematic areas reflecting the pillars of the Sustainable Development Goals, including people, planet, prosperity, peace and partnerships.

Samar, who pioneered the use of truck art to draw attention to social issues in the country, said that she, leading a team of artists and truckers, designed and replaced conventional truck images of men with those of empowered girls receiving an education. She said the trucks traveled through and reached remote parts of the country, so they served as mobile billboards.

“Our rolling billboards with messages and images drawn from local culture and traditions are helping to change mindsets and promote the empowerment of girls and women in remote areas of Pakistan,” she said. declared.

Samar said she integrated indigenous folk culture and art, film and folk music to create culturally relevant interventions that resonated with local audiences.

“Through these innovative storytelling tools, I raised awareness about harmful cultural practices, including compensatory marriages. I want to continue using these tools to raise awareness and change mindsets,” she said. According to the anthropologist, who is also a renowned filmmaker, art has the power to connect and educate people in innovative ways.

She said raising awareness was the first step to start localizing the SDGs.

“If done in collaboration with local communities, the message and information will belong to the audiences that matter. I will continue to create innovative and culturally relevant works that are enduring,” she said.

Samar said she first used truck art in 2003 to spread messages against swara (practice of compensation marriages) and after observing its effectiveness and impact on the targeted community, 19 similar projects were launched on women’s literacy and missing children. She even moved the Supreme Court with the first public interest litigation against compensatory marriages and illegal jirga decisions, and thus made swara illegal in 2004.

“Our campaign aims to preserve this indigenous art form while replacing celebrity images with empowered girls and empowering messages for women’s rights,” she said.

Samar has also used storytelling to shine a light on unsung heroes in rural communities, especially men, who stand up against harmful cultural norms and protect the human rights of their daughters. Focusing primarily on local audiences, its truck documentaries and artwork have been translated into multiple regional languages ​​for wider audiences.

ONE of Merseyside’s most popular artists has taken over the World of Glass Main Gallery to showcase his vibrant and colorful paintings.

Everything could have turned out very differently for John Charles, 38, after finding himself consumed by alcohol and drug addiction.

At 27, he was at an all-time low. Using cocaine daily and hiding it from his family, his debts were out of control, he had missed his mortgage payments, his car had been taken by a finance company and his relationship was in shambles.

“I don’t want this to be a bloody story but I think it’s important to talk about it,” said John, who is originally from Kirkby and now lives in Huyton. “There are half a million people in this country who are addicted to alcohol, so if I can reach someone who thinks ‘if he quits maybe I can’ I will.”

The father-of-one found art to be of great help as he began his recovery with rediscovering his childhood talent giving him something to focus on. He’s even raised awareness through his art – visiting schools, engaging with young people to help them understand that drug use can quickly turn into drug abuse.

“When it comes to drugs, I wanted to be hyper and bloated, so I became a cocaine user,” he said. “Smoking weed wasn’t for me – I needed to bounce off the walls so I had to put all my energy into something and it was art.

“If you look at my art, it’s full of energy – it’s not portraits where someone has been sitting for hours and hours and it looks like a photograph.

“I need to paint quickly and it has been a big part of my recovery. ”

Many of John’s paintings capture celebrities and icons he can relate to, as well as landmarks from Merseyside.

“My photo of Johnny Cash made a storm,” he said. “He’s someone I can really connect with – I even have tattoos of him.”

John is still clean and understated and now makes a career out of selling his artwork.

“In 2019, I handed in my summons as an official,” he added. “I couldn’t have dreamed it would have turned out so well and I never looked back.”

Evolution by John Charles is at World of Glass, open Monday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Work of art for dental care: this Vancouver dentist has been exchanging his services for 25 years https://jeanspezial.com/work-of-art-for-dental-care-this-vancouver-dentist-has-been-exchanging-his-services-for-25-years/ https://jeanspezial.com/work-of-art-for-dental-care-this-vancouver-dentist-has-been-exchanging-his-services-for-25-years/#respond Thu, 16 Sep 2021 07:00:00 +0000 https://jeanspezial.com/work-of-art-for-dental-care-this-vancouver-dentist-has-been-exchanging-his-services-for-25-years/ Curator Patrik Andersson is days away from the opening of a new exhibition at Griffin Art Projects in North Vancouver.

Curator Patrik Andersson is days away from the opening of a new exhibition at Griffin Art Projects in North Vancouver. The exhibition will ultimately bring together at least 100 works, most of which represent a who’s who of the established local art scene. They are all very different artists, doing very different types of work, he notes. “But they all go to the same dentist.”

That dentist would be Dr. Zenon Trylowsky. A longtime friend of Andersson’s, he has run a practice since 1996, located in the Vancouver building on Granville Street. “It’s an iconic building, but if people knew what was going on inside …” Andersson muses, pausing. Because as long as Trylowsky has been practicing dentistry – longer, really – he’s also cultivated an art collection. And while he certainly does acquire things through traditional means, he has accumulated much of the collection by interacting with his patients: offering dental care in exchange for works of art.

“It’s a great way to: a) help some people who need a little help, and b) you know, add to the collection,” says Trylowsky. And although the dentist will not disclose the details of how a transaction will unfold, he has been engaged in this form of pro bono exchange for 25 years. It’s an idea he borrowed from another dentist, he explains – the man who owned the practice before him. When they met, Trylowsky was impressed with the senior dentist’s art collection. Unlike typical waiting rooms, decorated with uninspired landscapes – perhaps a magical eye impression of a catamaran, if you’re fancy – this dentist had a taste for contemporary art. Trylowsky was inspired. Why not surround himself and his patients with what he loved?

And ever since he started his business, he has decorated his office like this. On the whole, the artists he collects are patients of the past and the present. But they are not amateurs. “I don’t think he’s just buying or collecting artwork from an artist who shows up and has a toothache,” Andersson says. “These are strong pieces from strong artists.” And although Trylowsky is reluctant to pick his favorites, he notices his fondness for the works of Vikky Alexander, Ron Terada, and Rodney Graham. An article by Kelly Wood – an image of a shiny, hard candy sucker – has been looming in the waiting room for ages, and as the dentist’s humor puts it, it’s a pretty sweet joke. “It was just to, you know, remind people why they’re in a dental office,” he says. “A subtle clue! “

On September 25, the public will be able to see this work and several dozen others without reserving a clean-up. Griffin Art Projects will host Teeth, Loan and Trust Company, Consolidated: The Trylowsky Collection until December 11, while at the dentist’s office a smaller exhibit will be underway. Featuring work by Kim Kennedy Austin, Ryan Quast and Neil Wedman, the office event is unfortunately only for patients. But Andersson arranges this bonus exhibit as a nod to a project from his and Trylowsky’s past – something that arguably kicked off the dentist’s collection.

In 1997, Trylowsky was only a year into his practice and Andersson was a starting art curator with nowhere to turn. But he had an idea, which he pitched to his old friend. “Zenon really needed clients,” says Andersson, so he suggested turning the office into an exhibition space. He would get a gallery, and foot traffic could draw customers to Trylowsky. “It was kind of my hook for getting him to let me do shows there,” Andersson said. “We thought it was pretty funny, and then it kind of turned out to be what happened.”

For a decade Andersson organized art exhibitions for “The Trylowsky Gallery”. In any other context, their pop-up was just a room across from the main cabinet – a space where Trylowsky struggled with his paperwork. (And that’s where he does it again, actually.) But the duo had a prime location. The office is around the corner from the Vancouver Art Gallery, and they would attract museum crowds by hosting their events in conjunction with the VAG opening nights. But in 2007, the dentist’s days as a guerrilla gallery owner came to an end. Andersson’s curatorial platform (Trapp Projects) had passed the makeshift space, but Trylowsky’s interest in contemporary art persisted.

He had met countless artists, many of them in Andersson’s circles. Often these presentations were strictly dental references, and recently Andersson has given this fact a lot of thought. It comes to his mind whenever he discovers a long-lost piece in the Trylowsky collection – especially the art of colleagues plagued by dental problems. At the time, he told them to “go see Zenon”. And apparently they took his advice; the proof, apparently, is in the collection.

But Andersson found something more revealing while developing the show. The Trylowsky collection is, on one level, the record for a relationship between a dentist and his exceptionally remarkable patients – but it’s also a story about Vancouver art over the past 25 years, he says. “I think for a lot of the artists on the show, this will be a nice retrospective,” says Andersson. Beyond the people who do regular checkups every six months with Trylowsky, few people have seen this work. But Andersson says they “bring to mind one of the small moments and events in the history of this place. It’s a very local collection except for one or two artists.”

Earlier this week, every item in the collection was handed over to Andersson, and for the first time in forever, Trylwosky’s walls are bare: no home art, no office art. It’s an exciting time, he says, knowing he’s about to share his collection with the public. But maybe it is also strange. Before Andersson offered him the idea of ​​doing the exhibition, he didn’t feel like a true collector, he says. “Because you’re kind of surrounded by it, you consider it a normal thing,” he says. To appreciate art, to support art, there is nothing more natural. Said Trylowsky: “You realize it’s a big part of everyday life, in a way.”
