by BWW News Desk - Sep 14, 2014

Manifestationz is excited to announce a very unique art class on September 20, 2014.

This is the first class of its kind for Manifestationz. Tewksbury will also be the featured artist for the month of November at the Gallery. For class registration, and for more information on Tewksbury's showing, please visit the website at www.manifestationz.com. (more...)

Two New Exhibits Debut at the Erie Art Museum, 9/13
by BWW News Desk - Sep 12, 2014

The Erie Art Museum is pleased to present two new exhibits this month, Pattern Recognition, Works by Jamie Borowicz in the Hagen Family Gallery, on view September 13, 2014 through January 11, 2015, and William E. Workman (1932 - 2012) in the Ronald E. Holstein Gallery, on view September 19, 2014 through February 7, 2015. Works by Jamie Borowicz in the Hagen Family Gallery, on view September 13, 2014 through January 11, 2015. Jamie Borowicz's art exploits the tensions between the natural materials he uses, their clearly man-made design, and their setting in nature. Many of his works are ephemeral pieces on a beach near his house, lasting as long as the lake and weather allow. Nature provides not only most of his materials, but his inspiration as well. His repertoire ranges from naturalistic watercolors to large sculptures constructed of rocks and other assorted objects on the beach. Some of his beach works are documented with thoughtful commentary on his blog titled 'stonewave' (http://beachworks.blogspot.com). Exhibited work ranges from paintings and photos to sculptural forms made of stone and other natural materials. The exhibit includes three bodies of work: freestanding sculptural pieces up to eight feet high, photographs documenting sculptures constructed on the beach with a limited lifespan, and a watercolor series that examines the different textures and forms found in nature. A beloved teacher of art and art history at Mercyhurst Preparatory School, Borowicz graduated with degrees in Art and Art Education from Mercyhurst University, where he is also an adjunct faculty member. He received Master's and Doctoral degrees in Anthropology from the State University of New York at Buffalo. His anthropological studies have taken him to Teotihuacan, Mexico and Tikal, Guatemala where he studied Pre-Colombian culture, art, and iconography. Borowicz's archaeological articles and drawings, both technical and interpretive, have been published in the United States, Mexico and Guatemala. Borowicz has taken that experience and brought it to his classroom, offering courses in Art History, Art Appreciation, Anthropology, and Mesoamerican Prehistory. William E. Workman (1932 - 2012) in the Ronald E. Holstein Gallery, on view September 19, 2014 through February 7, 2015. The late William Workman revealed the beauty of the mundane in his carefully composed scenes of urban and rural decay. His photos feature saturated colors and high contrast, an extension of his earlier experience with black and white photography. Workman got his first camera in 1945, at age 13. By high school he was already on his fourth, shooting pictures for three local newspapers and pursuing other freelance opportunities. He once said, 'All my friends called me the Margaret Bourke White of Brentwood,' referring to the pioneering adventurous photojournalist and his western Pennsylvania hometown. Fresh out of high school, Workman was hired by a Fortune 200 company to shoot industrial advertising photographs. Five years later he was drafted into the army; he took advantage of his time abroad to develop a photojournalistic style. After returning from the service, he earned a BS in business. While working, he authored several books and illustrated two on firearms collecting. In 2000, the large format nature photographs of Clyde Butcher reinvigorated his interest in black and white fine art photography, leading eventually to his explorations in color. Workman's photos have been exhibited at the George Eastman House, the Pentagon, and the Smithsonian Institution, and have earned him honors from Eastman Kodak, National Wildlife Federation, United States Armed Services, and others. His work has been featured in magazines such as Lenswork and Photographers Forum. In his final days, the Sharpsville (Mercer County) resident printed 23 photos, the beginning of what he had planned to be a rather large body of work. These unique prints featured in this exhibition are among the only color photographs that Mr. Workman produced. A public reception for both exhibits, including an artist reception for Jamie Borowicz, will be held on Gallery Night, Friday, September 26 from 7 to 10 p.m. at the Erie Art Museum. Admission is free. More details are found at erieartmuseum.org. (more...)

Focus: Fiber 2014, a National Biennial Exhibition of Contemporary Fiber Art Opens, 9/26
by BWW News Desk - Sep 10, 2014

The opening reception will feature the presentation of artist awards. The reception is free and open to the public. Presented by the Textile Art Alliance (TAA), an affiliate group of the Cleveland Museum of Art, Focus: Fiber 2014 features tapestry, embroidery, quilts, basketry, weaving, and sculpture by American artists. Juror Paola Morsiani, director of the Neuberger Museum at the State University of New York at Purchase, and former curator of contemporary art at the Cleveland Museum of Art, was charged with selecting the best work in fiber and/or fiber techniques from the pool of entries from 26 states. Personal narratives, social and political statements, representational imagery and purely abstract compositions are included. The artists chose equally diverse fiber techniques to execute and express their singular visions. Morsiani has put together a thoughtful show that celebrates fiber art in the 21st century. In her juror's statement, she writes, 'As a curator of contemporary art, I see all artists integrating textile media in their work seamlessly and creatively... [This exhibition] offers a rare opportunity to delve into the rich variety of inventions and interpretations of age-old techniques by artists skilled in these traditions and investing in expanding practices and expressions... The results expand our perspectives on our times, placing these works strongly at the intersection of life, art, and innovation.' Prize winners include Kathryn Shinko's Dirty Sampler series, which ponders our dependence on social media; Mary Michael's Seascape, a quilt that invokes transformations and transcendence; Michael Radyk's Swan Print, in which the artist weaves with recycled materials; Susie Taylor's Pearl, an innovative weaving that includes origami as an integral part of the weave structure; and Judy Rush's Portrait of the Middle Child, a commentary on interactions with adult children. Textile Art Alliance is an active organization of artists, designers, educators and collectors with a common interest in the textile and fiber arts. Formed in 1934, TAA takes as its purpose the promotion of fiber arts through exhibition, educational programs and purchases to enlarge the textile collection of the Cleveland Museum of Art. TAA has mounted an exhibition of members' work since 1936. In 1967 it became a juried show. In 1970 a decision was made to restrict the show to fiber art. The show expanded to a regional juried show in 1977 and to a national show with this exhibition. JPGS available upon request. A full color catalog of the exhibition will be available. Museum hours are Tuesday - Saturday, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., Sunday, 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Closed on Mondays. Museum admission is $7 for adults and $5 for students/seniors.

Konica Minolta & NineSigma Launch Contest for Service Innovation on Handwriting Input Device
by BWW News Desk - Sep 10, 2014

Lots of handwriting input devices already exist in the world. However, many of them are restricted in how freely you can use them; for example, some require the use of a specific pen and paper. Konica Minolta's technology, on the other hand, can be used with any type of pen and paper, just as you would fill out regular paper. People who are used to handwriting can use it seamlessly in the same way as writing on normal paper. Konica Minolta, Inc. believes that this technology can be utilized in the medical and education fields, but they need to research further to know whether there is actually a strong need in these areas, or whether there are in fact more appealing needs in other areas. The client therefore widely issues this contest-style request, in order to solicit service business built with Konica Minolta's technology. (more...)
