At the pinnacle of her career, internationally recognized photographer Carrie Ann inexplicably shuts down. Lost and afraid to even pick up a camera, her sudden descent is interrupted by an unexpected romance with Jeff, a trend analyst determined to help her move on even while facing his own uncertain future. Two-time Drama Desk-nominated playwright Alexander Dinelaris (Red Dog Howls), is quickly being recognized as a stunning new voice in American theater. Film and theater director Will Frears (Omnium Gatherum) brings his discerning eye to this funny and heartbreaking play about a generation paralyzed by fear. The production's uniformly superb cast features Dominic Chianese (Uncle Junior in The Sopranos), Adriane Lenox (Tony Award-winner for Doubt), Sarah Paulson (of NBC's Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip), Frederick Weller (of MCC's In a Dark Dark House and In Plain Sight on USA), and more.

Manifestationz Welcomes New Artists in NovemberManifestationz Welcomes New Artists in November
by BWW News Desk - Oct 27, 2014

Manifestationz is pleased to welcome two wonderfully talented artists for the month of November. Throughout the entire month, we will have Artist Doreen Tewksbury and Kevin Peddicord. Manifestationz will celebrate their features with a special Final Friday reception on Friday October 31st. Tewksbury, a Raleigh area artist, is no stranger to the gallery. She recently taught an Encaustic Art class which showed students how to create pieces using an ancient Grecian technique that uses hot molten wax. Tewksbury credits her family for being one of the many inspirations in her life that sparks her creative side. As a child, she was encouraged by her parents and grandparents who hung her endless drawings all over the place. After moving to Wake Forest from Michigan, Tewksbury took a class that reignited her passion for drawing. Since then, she invented herself as an artist by taking workshops and experimenting in painting with mixed media, acrylics and encaustics (molten wax) and continuing to draw portraits of people and pets, landscapes and Still Life with graphite. Artist Kevin Peddicord is a native of Columbia MD who began as a designer/art director/pre-press manager at a Triangle area printing company after moving to NC in 1991. He later started his own graphic design company, and went on to work in the sports entertainment field. He began oil painting in the summer of 2004, and participated in a number of shows at various galleries in Raleigh, Winston-Salem, and Wilmington. His primary work is figurative painting in oils and acrylics, as well as watercolor and pen and ink drawings. Kevin cites German Expressionist, French New Wave, and Film Noir as form and subject influences, as well as artistic influences of Edward Hopper, Greg Manchess, Skip Liepke, Frank Frazetta, Alex Ross and Gene Colan. Peddicord currently lives in Raleigh NC with his wife Nanette and two sons Ian and Dane. (more...)

Luxembourg & Dayan Presents THAT OBSCURE OBJECT OF DESIRE, 8/14-10/4Luxembourg & Dayan Presents THAT OBSCURE OBJECT OF DESIRE, 8/14-10/4
by BWW News Desk - Jul 30, 2014

In Luis Buñuel's 1977 film “That Obscure Object of Desire,” the hero lusts after a tantalizing and elusive woman. His obsession spirals out of control, clouding his judgment and ultimately leading him to a state of utter submissiveness. Borrowing the title of Buñel's film, Luxembourg & Dayan is pleased to present an exhibition that explores the dark side of desire, highlighting the often-suppressed connection between an artwork and a fetishized object. The process of object making is here explored as an obsessive endeavor akin in its intensity to erotic infatuation. Each of the artists represented in That Obscure Object of Desire is continuously drawn to forms, processes, and materials with bodily connotations that oscillate between the sexual and the abject, reworked in countless variations.

Labor Day Weekend Exhibition at Ocean Galleries Features Viktor Shvaiko and Thomas Stiltz, 8/29Labor Day Weekend Exhibition at Ocean Galleries Features Viktor Shvaiko and Thomas Stiltz, 8/29
by BWW News Desk - Jul 23, 2014

Meet the artists at gallery receptions throughout the weekend. Ocean Galleries (9618 Third Avenue, Stone Harbor, NJ) hosts two exceptional artists for a Labor Day weekend exhibition: Viktor Shvaiko and Thomas Stiltz. 'Wine and Romance - the Evocative Images of Viktor Shvaiko and Thomas Stiltz' opens at the gallery on Friday, August 29, 2014 and runs through Sunday, August 31, 2014. Guests will have the opportunity to meet the two artists at receptions taking place in the Stone Harbor gallery from 7:00 PM until 10:00 PM on Friday, August 29, Saturday, August 30, and Sunday, August 31, 2014. The exhibit is free and open to the public, with all artwork available for acquisition. 'We are excited to welcome these two talented artists back to the gallery,' explained Kim Miller, owner of Ocean Galleries. 'Their styles are quite different, but complimentary. Viktor Shvaiko paints cafes and intimate scenes from Italy, France, and other European destinations with a great sense of lighting and shadows in a classic style. Thomas Stiltz uses an old world technique of applying many layers of glazed oil paint to express the pleasures of sight, taste, sound, smell, and touch.' Born in Altai, one of Russia's most remote and off-the-beaten-track towns, Viktor Shvaiko grew up surrounded by the beauty of the wilderness. His natural inclination for fine arts and his strong urge to share his vision of nature drove him to find a way into the Novoaltaisk Artistic School, one of the most prestigious schools for the arts in the former Soviet Union, where he acquired the skills of a true artist. A strict regimen of drawing, an intricate technique of using colors, and the influence of the nineteenth century Russian artist Karl Brynllow brought Viktor Shvaiko close to a traditional academic style of painting. At this point, Viktor's subject focus became the beautiful Altai landscapes. The Shvaiko family later moved to Transkarpathia, the western mountainous portion of Ukraine, where Viktor became enchanted with the picturesque and breathtakingly beautiful countryside. His travels took him to Yugoslavia and then on to Italy, where he began painting various village scenes with great detail. Years later, Viktor settled in New York City. There he developed his penchant for painting quaint cafes and other intimate places from his travels that we see in his work today and that have become his trademark. His enticing mix of beauty and mystery has drawn the interest and admiration of collectors from around the world. Thomas Stiltz received a B.A. in Fine Art and M.A. in Photography from the University of Delaware. After a highly successful career in photography and graphic design, Stiltz began his career as a painter in the mid-1990s. Stiltz was drawn initially to the Still Life genre, with early influences such as Cezanne, Vermeer, and the Spanish Still Life painters of the 1600s. He later began incorporating his skills as a photographer, exacting manipulation of materials and creating a photographic visual language through his art. Stiltz uses an old world technique of applying many layers of glazed oil paint, which gives color intensity and depth. His optimistic art creates and invents wonderful visions that strive to express the pleasures of all the senses. Stiltz believes art should provide stability and beauty to which we can anchor our constantly changing existence. Precision and clarity define his work and give him the ability to examine his thoughts and responses to world. Stiltz's works have been exhibited by more than 50 galleries around the United States, Canada, and China, and he has had over 40 one-man shows featuring his photography and paintings. The 'Wine and Romance - the Evocative Images of Viktor Shvaiko and Thomas Stiltz' exhibition will include original artwork and prints by the two artists, all available for acquisition. The collection will be on display at Ocean Galleries (9618 Third Avenue, Stone Harbor, NJ) on Friday, August 29 through Sunday, August 31, 2014, with special receptions from 7:00 PM until 10:00 PM on Friday, August 29, Saturday, August 30, and Sunday, August 31. The exhibition is free and open to the public. The Stone Harbor gallery is open from 10:00 AM until 10:00 PM daily during the summer season. For more or directions, call 609-368-7777 or visit oceangalleries.com For over 25 years, Ocean Galleries has provided quality art by contemporary artists to their clients while practicing the highest standards of credibility and integrity in a comfortable and unpretentious atmosphere.

RENT gets me every time. Seeing it for the 14th time is just as thrilling, emotional, and epic as the first time I saw it 17 years ago. I can't even put into words why it has such a strong grip on my soul. It's just such a beautiful message of love, hope, community, and life, made all the more poignant by creator Jonathan Larson's untimely passing. Lyric Arts' new production is truly beautiful; the cast is energetic and talented, the sets and costumes have that cool rock show vibe, and the staging is different enough to make it feel fresh and original, but similar enough to the Broadway version to feel familiar to RENTheads like me. RENT is a brilliantly written piece of music-theater, and Lyric Arts has done Jonathan Larson proud. I can think of no higher praise. (more...)

Ocean Galleries Features Viktor Shvaiko and Thomas Stiltz at Gallery Receptions, 8/29Ocean Galleries Features Viktor Shvaiko and Thomas Stiltz at Gallery Receptions, 8/29
by BWW News Desk - Aug 20, 2014

One is a Master of Contemporary Realism, while the other paints realistic masterpieces that incorporate threads of Classicism, Romanticism, and Impressionism. Together, the two talented and world-renowned artists, Thomas Stiltz and Viktor Shvaiko, bring a collection of breathtaking paintings for one extraordinary exhibition at Ocean Galleries (9618 Third Avenue, Stone Harbor, NJ) over the Labor Day weekend. 'Wine and Romance - the Evocative Images of Viktor Shvaiko and Thomas Stiltz' opens at the gallery on Friday, August 29, 2014 and runs through Sunday, August 31, 2014. In addition to viewing this exceptional collection, gallery goers will have the chance to meet Viktor Shvaiko and Thomas Stiltz at Ocean Galleries receptions from 7:00 PM until 10:00 PM on Friday, August 29, Saturday, August 30, and Sunday, August 31, 2014. The exhibit, which will remain on display through Sunday, September 7, 2014, is free and open to the public, with all artwork available for acquisition. Often described as a Master of Contemporary Realism, Thomas Stiltz brings a collection of his Still Life paintings to the gallery for the Labor Day showing. His long career as a professional photographer has greatly influenced Stiltz's unique painting methods, where he uses old world techniques to apply numerous layers of oil paints, each composed of thin, colorful glazes. Whereas painters usually start with a fixed canvas size and fill it with objects, a photographer uses cropping techniques to express an image or scene. Stiltz often leaves space around the objects he paints, allowing 'air' to flow through the images. Best known for his wine paintings, Stiltz's works feature brilliant color, sparkling realism, and quality of light. In addition to the collection of art that will be on display, Stiltz will custom paint a favorite bottle of wine for clients. He begins by photographing the wine with various arrangements and settings, with the buyer able to select a favorite image before the actual painting occurs. All custom artwork can be framed by Ocean Galleries, well known throughout the Southern New Jersey area for their exquisite framing. The gallery selected each frame for the Stiltz and Shvaiko exhibition. Viktor Shvaiko paints in a realistic manner that defies neat labeling, incorporating threads of Classicism, Romanticism, and Impressionism into a signature style that is unique and instantly recognizable. Built on a firm foundation of academic training acquired through the disciplines of Russian art schools, Shvaiko has fused many influences into his work to arrive at his current approach to painting. Years ago, Shvaiko fled the painful oppression of his homeland, Russia, with just his paintings strapped to his back. Winding up in Italy, Shvaiko was forced to sell his paintings to survive. After years of struggling, it wasn't until his relocation to New York City in the early 1990s that his dream of living as an artist began to materialize. Since that time, Shvaiko has become one of the most desired painters of the twenty-first century. His breathtaking scenes of Mediterranean landscapes and European villages are intensely focused creations that capture the subtle qualities of sunlight, shadows, and shades of color. 'I love the beauty and detail that are evident in each of Shvaiko's paintings,' said Kim Miller, owner of Ocean Galleries. 'Similarly, Stiltz's paintings, although quite different in style, evoke great detail and encourage the viewer to examine the underlying structure of familiar forms. We are thrilled to share this amazing collection of artwork with the community over Labor Day weekend.' This exhibition represents the second time the artists will visit Ocean Galleries, which has represented the artists and carried their artwork for over 10 years. 'Wine and Romance - the Evocative Images of Viktor Shvaiko and Thomas Stiltz' includes original artwork and limited editions by the two artists, all of which are custom framed by Ocean Galleries and available for acquisition. The collection will be on display at Ocean Galleries (9618 Third Avenue, Stone Harbor, NJ) on Friday, August 29 through Sunday, August 31, 2014, with receptions from 7:00 PM until 10:00 PM on Friday, August 29, Saturday, August 30, and Sunday, August 31. The exhibition is free and open to the public, with artwork remaining on display through Sunday, September 7, 2014. The Stone Harbor gallery is open from 10:00 AM until 10:00 PM daily during the summer season.
