World-Renowned Muralist ARYZ Begins Painting His New Mural in San Francisco, Co-organized by Upper Playground, Fifty24SF Gallery and WallSpaceSF
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) April 29, 2013
Barcelona-based artist and famed muralist, ARYZ began work on his latest large-scale mural in San Francisco over the weekend. The wall located in the Tenderloin district, will feature a striking portrait of a woman drafted in ARYZs signature style. The new mural due to be finished this week is sponsored and co-organized by local support from Fifty24SF Gallery, WallSpaceSF and Upper Playground.
ARYZ, arrived in San Francisco earlier this month to open his highly anticipated, first solo show in the United States: STYLE IS THE LIMIT. The show at Fifty24SF Gallery opened on April 19th with a new body of work featuring studies, canvases and a sculpture that ARYZ has been working on between his murals across the world. The show will remain open until May 31st.
As a muralist, ARYZ is regarded by some as a transformative figure in contemporary muralism. He has been described as an artist who has taken on heavy-metal-influenced illustration and a tradition of European street art by combining them both into his own style of public art. He has achieved widespread acclaim in recent years, due in part to his artwork being featured on Aesop Rocks recent album Skelethon and a recent January 2013 cover and editorial feature in Juxtapoz magazine. But his well-received murals around the world speak for themselves and to the testament of this young artists talent and unique vision. Many of his fans in San Francisco and abroad highly anticipate what this finished mural will look like once it is completed this week. The latest news and updates about the mural will continue to post at http://news.upperplayground.com/news/aryz-mural-in-sanfrancisco.

Richard Anuszkiewicz: Three Dimensional Wall Reliefs and Sculptures from 1986-2012 Presented at David Richard Gallery In Santa Fe, New Mexico
Santa Fe, NM (PRWEB) April 26, 2013
David Richard Gallery will present Richard Anuszkiewicz, “Variations: Evolution of the Artists Media 1986-2012, the gallerys first solo exhibition for the artist that will feature three-dimensional artwork, including wall reliefs and pedestal sculptures. The exhibition will be presented from May 10-June 15, 2013 at the gallery located on 544 South Guadalupe Street, Santa Fe, New Mexico 87501, phone 505-983-9555 in the Santa Fe Railyard Arts District.
Featuring sculptural works accompanied by drawings and paintings, the exhibition maps the evolution of Richard Anuszkiewiczs art from 1986 through 2012 as he moves out of the purely two-dimensional plane and explores visual perception and three-dimensional space with the greatest economy of means, using only thin strips of wood or metal that are painted with just two or three carefully selected hues. Creating reductive structures, he takes advantage of a well known phenomenon in which the viewers mind completes the minimal constructs, envisioning a whole from the fragments by filling in the suggested flat surfaces or layers of overlapping planes. These structures are not only more architectural, but much simpler than his paintings, relying less on painting methods to create optical illusions and more on a literal approach aided by pure color.
In the “Translumina” series, the painted wooden strips on wall reliefs or pedestal sculptures create open structures that read as solid three-dimensional shapes. In the wall reliefs, the distances between the wood strips are graduated, which in combination with alternating hues model the rectangular shapes and create the illusion of rounded columns. Thus, he creates and maintains a tension between painting and sculpture to create the illusion of solid three-dimensional overlapping shapes. Another series of sculptures is still more reductive, whereby Anuszkiewicz uses only thin strips of metal constructed in a two-dimensional plane painted with one to four colorsmostly primarysuch that they appear as line drawings. These sculptures are so open and transparent, they seem to float like boxes and cruciform structures in space.
The exhibition will be accompanied by an on-line and printed catalogue with an essay by John Yau of New York.
Richard Anuskiewicz studied at Yale University with Josef Albers and at age 82, his art making still focuses on color and visual perception. His artwork has been featured in over 340 solo and group exhibitions since 1951 and is currently included in the international exhibition, “Dynamo: A Century of Light and Motion in Art, 1913 – 2013″ at the Galeries Nationales du Grand Palais, in Paris (France) through July. He was included in seminal exhibitions that ushered in Op Art, such as “Vibrations Eleven”, Martha Jackson Gallery, New York, January 6 – 31, 1965 and “The Responsive Eye”, Museum of Modern Art, New York, February 23 – April 25, 1965 and early in his career, he was represented by the important Sidney Janis Gallery of New York. Anuszkiewiczs art is included in the permanent collections of over 70 museums around the world including: Art Institute of Chicago, Chicago, IL; Guggenheim Museum, New York, NY; Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, NY; Museum of Modern Art, New York, NY; and Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, NY, among others.
David Richard Gallery specializes in post-war abstract art including Abstract Expressionism, Color Field, geometric and hard-edge painting, Op, Pop, Minimalism, Feminism and conceptualism in a variety of media. Featuring both historic and contemporary artwork, the gallery represents many established artists who were part of important art historical movements and tendencies that occurred during the 1950s through the 1980s on both the east and west coasts. The gallery also represents artist estates, emerging artists and offers secondary market works.

New York Art Exhibition at Agora Gallery Opening November 1st Featuring Many Artists Including Sculptor Cheri Mittermaier
West Palm Beach, Fl (PRWEB) October 31, 2012
A great deal of Cheri Mittermaier’s work comes from her dreams. And speaking of dreams, Agora Gallery is having an art exhibition November 1st – November 21, 2012 The opening reception will be on November 8, 2012 (6 to 8 pm)
Many of Cheri Mittermaier’s sculptures will be exhibited including “Hands”, “Andre”, “Eve”, “Unbridled”, “Aurora”, “Dreamer”, “Trophy Wife” and “Unbridled With Colors”. These bronzes are all very special in their own way. “Each piece embraces the deepest levels of human longing, bringing the viewer to magical spaces where double meanings exist and all is not what it appears” stated Joyce Asper of Agora Gallery, September 2011.
Not all Cheri’s sculptures come from her dreams. “Bosom Bunny” for example is not from a dream. It was Cheri first sculpture. “Bosom Bunny” was built from the bottom up, in coils. It has the body of a women and at the last moment, Cheri gave it a bunny head. This gesture was a nod to Joe Bova and his sculpture of a Playboy bunny.
With regard to “Trophy Wife”, Cheri was having a dream where she was walking through a gallery and she was seeing sculptures that were really interesting to her. Soon after she woke up, and realized the artwork was hers. Cheri started work on a sculpture of a face of a woman with the neck of a horse. After speaking with another artist, Brian Somerville, he suggested the sculpture be a wall hanging, like a trophy. From that point on it became “Trophy Wife”.
When the sculpture “Dreamer” was being made, Cheri was molding the clay, working very quickly and she was observing that the piece looked very rough. She realized that she liked it in it’s raw state. Cheri likes the tool marks and fingerprints on her sculptures.
One evening Cheri was riveted to a movie she was watching about Georgia O’Keeffe. In the twilight hours of the next day Cheri had a dream about a static horse with no legs and a female rider mounted upon it. This became the start of “Unbridled”. Be sure to mark your calendar to see “Unbridled” and Cheri’s other works at Agora Gallery.
About The Artist:
Cheri Mittermaier is a native of Indiana, graduate of Purdue with a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology with a concentration in Fine Arts and Humanities. She has traveled extensively and studied sculpture in Paris, France and Rome, Italy under Peter Rubino and Martine Vaugel. Cheri currently lives and works in West Palm Beach, Fl. Her work was chosen by the Boca Raton Fine Art Museum in 2009 and 2010.
