THE CLIO ART FAIR

CLIO ART FAIR is a curated fair created with the idea of discovering independent artists and showcasing the careers and achievements of already affirmed creative minds.

Painting is a way of thinking and acting that relies on relationships
between mind and body, color and form.  In looking at a painting, it takes time to understand the artist’s hand; when we take the time, we connect with the artist’s mind.  Inherent, often unconscious tendencies determine the “look” of all my work, and each successful painting expresses the same intention – to embody emotion and imagination in a different way.

Music inspires me, and while listening to it I work in a complex dance with
paint and canvas in a physical act that frees creativity.  With close observation of my subject, most often water, and photographic references I have produced, I follow the rhythm that emerges from the canvas.  The colors chosen are often arbitrary, and paint is layered until I feel and see movement and life on the canvas.

Water, being necessary for all of life, is particularly suited to this kind of intention.

Food, Water and Art: Connections and Advocacy

SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 21, 2015
2 PM – 4 PM, CATHEDRAL HOUSE CONFERENCE ROOM

Artists, art writers, and activists will explore the linkages between food, water, and art and consider how aesthetic responses can counter current threats to water and food production. This conversation is organized by Fredericka Foster, a visual artist, water activist, and guest curator of the Cathedral’s 2011–2012 exhibition, The Value of Water.

Participating panelists include Kirby Gookin and Robin Kahn, guest curators of The Value of Food; Ann Marshall; Aviva Rahmani; Daisy Craddock; Lenore Malen; and Benjamin Sutton. A guided tour of the exhibition, led by Gookin and Kahn, will immediately follow the conversation.

This event, which is open to the public, is presented as part of a programming series for the current exhibition, The Value of Food: Sustaining a Green Planet, on view until April 3, 2016.
