Make Your Contribution Count!

Dear Friends of Southern Atelier,

This year, Southern Atelier proudly participates in the 2016 Giving Challenge sponsored by the Community Foundation of Sarasota County. Over the last few years, people who care in Southwest Florida have infused more than $8 million into our community through the Giving Challenge, an exciting day of online giving. We are asking you to join the challenge for the Southern Atelier and make an impact on our artistic community.

Southern Atelier’s mission is to provide a dynamic teaching program to train highly-skilled artists. In the past years, Southern Atelier has offered rigorous instruction to hundreds of student-artists in painting, drawing and sculpture. In addition to regular classes this year, seven workshops featured visiting artists. Our classical art history lectures have highlighted the historical significance of art. Our doors were open for the Sarasota Fine Arts Society’s Art Tour, and this summer we offered Summer Camp for high school and middle school students.

When you donate funds to Southern Atelier, you support classically trained artists who themselves make an impact both on the world and the local community. Your contribution means that the lessons of the past masters of art can be brought forward to new generations of artists and art lovers. Help the Southern Atelier achieve these goals and help artists create amazing contemporary, classical art by contributing funds for:

  • a certified art degree program and expanded course offerings
  • a summer program for youth that can pass along both the appreciation of art and the skills to create it
  • partnerships within the community for art exhibitions and lecture series
  • operational expenses to help keep the Atelier’s doors open
  • improvements to the studio space
  • purchase of new equipment such as a TV monitor, lighting and supplies
  • web site design and upkeep
  • scholarship endowment

From noon on Tuesday, September 20 until noon on Wednesday, September 21, please contribute to Southern Atelier by following the Giving Challenge link. It’s easy to do, and the Southern Atelier will benefit hugely by your donation. Every dollar counts, and the earlier the donations come in, the more the matching funds we can receive from the Sarasota Community Foundation’s legacy donors.

Every dollar you donate to Southern Atelier brings a matching amount from the Patterson Foundation!

That means a 2:1 match for each new online donor’s contribution and a 1:1 match for returning donor’s contribution (up to $100 per donor). Wow! Your generous donation could mean a lot to Southern Atelier!

Plus, $51,000 in prizes are offered to nonprofits that cultivate the highest totals of dollars.

How Do You Make Your Contribution?

Credit/debit card donations must be received during the 24-hour period online at www.givingpartnerchallenge.org. So, mark your calendars now and on Sept. 20—21, go online and make your contribution.

Knight Foundation, William G. and Marie Selby Foundation, and the Herald-Tribune Media Group. Partner funders do not receive fees of any kind from donations made during the Giving Challenge.

 

 

Youth Afterschool Course with Elizabeth Jenness

13590229_10153780271010875_752506527635878768_n

[returning in the fall!]

Wednesdays 4:00 – 6:00 pm

The goal of these classes is to provide skill-based learning to create a deeper understanding of the visual imagery that is all around us. At the Atelier we believe that anyone has the ability to create art,  by learning basic skills such as those implemented by Da Vinci and Michelangelo.

Each lesson will encourage a child’s creativity while asking them to analyze what they see and apply it in a variety of different exercises.

The classes will focus on emphasizing form primarily using charcoal to establish and build upon a foundation of traditional drawing.

If you are interested in taking this class, please contact Elizabeth Jenness at elijebrg@mail.com.

 Biography

Expressive Compositions in Oil with Jove WangJove Wang was born in China. As a youth, at age seven he apprenticed with the master painter Gang Gu, subsequently studying at Jilin School of Art for three years and graduating in 1982.

In 1984 he was accepted into the most prestigious art institute of China, Zhejiang Academy of Fine Arts (now named the China Academy of Art) and graduated as an honor student in 1988.

He also received professional training from the Tokyo Academy of Fine Arts.

In 1990 Jove Wang immigrated to the United States where he soon met with success, the beginning of a career that has garnered him national recognition.

In 1992 he was commissioned to paint a portrait of Bishop Roger Mahony for the Archdiocese Catholic Center in Los Angeles, and the following year painted a second portrait of Mahony, who by then had been named Cardinal, for exhibition at his Titular Church in Rome.

Other commissioned portraits followed, including Los Angeles County Supervisor Michael Antonorich.

Since then he has turned his focus to painting scenes of the indigenous cultures of China, based on numerous travels into the far reaches of that country.

In 1997 Jove Wang was honored with the Best of Show at the California Art Club’s 88th Annual Gold Medal Juried Exhibition, and the following year he took the First Place in the figure category in the California Art Club’s 89th Annual Gold Medal Juried exhibition.

In 1999, he earned the Best of Show at the 8th Annual National Juried Exhibition of Oil Painters of America.

In 2000 he took the First Place at the prestigious Viewpoint 2000 Cincinnati Art Club Exhibition. That same year he also won three prizes at the Plein Air Tucson 2000 Exhibit in Tucson (Grand Prize, Best of Mission, and Best Design/Architecture).

In 2001 he won the Best of Show and Artists’ Choice Award at the 2001 Carmel Art Festival.

In March 2008, Jove’s portrait “Young Man” won Gold Medal Award by Japan Artist Association at Tokyo National Museum.

In 2009, “A Day on the Silk Road” was selected by the 11th National Exhibition of Fine Arts in China.

In 2003 Wang published a book of his paintings, entitled “Instinct and Feeling.”

From 1999 to 2006, Jove Wang was invited to present his works for solo exhibitions in many galleries and museums.

California museums that have shown his paintings include the Pasadena Museum of California Art, the Pasadena Historical Museum, the Laguna Beach Art Museum, the Carnegie Art Museum in Oxnard, the Bowers Museum at Santa Ana and the Frederick R. Weisman Museum of Art at Pepperdine University in Malibu.

Paintings by Jove Wang have also been exhibited at the Springville Museum of Art in Springville, Utah, and the Phippen Museum in Arizona.

In addition, paintings by Jove Wang are in the permanent collections of several important California art collections including those of the Bowers Museum,

the Bakersfield Museum of Art and the art collection of Mission San Juan Capistrano, as well as in the art collection of the Museum of Jilin, China.

Interviews with Jove Wang and reproductions of his paintings have appeared in various magazines including Southwest Art, American Art Collector, Workshop and American Artist.

Jove Wang also maintains a busy schedule teaching art classes and workshops to a wide circle of students eager to learn from a master artist. He has been invited to teach oil painting workshops at various art schools and galleries including the Scottsdale Artists’ School in Scottsdale, Arizona.

In addition, the California Art Club has invited him to give demonstrations and lectures at the new campus of the Art Center College of Design, Pasadena and at the Autry Museum. Jove Wang is also a guest professor at several academies of fine art in China.

Jove Wang is a Signature Member of the California Art Club.

Ancient Art Lecture Series: “The Roman Contribution to Art” A special 60 minute lecture by Dr. David Miano, followed by discussion ~ Monday, April 11, 2016. 10:00am – 11:30am

Monday, April 11, 2016. 10:00am – 11:30am.

romansMany historians and art critics tend to see Roman art as, at best, a poor copy of Greek art. It is possible that the Romans themselves shared this perspective. Roman authors often rave about Greek sculptors, like Phidias and Praxiteles, but they make no mention of Roman sculptors. The elements of Greek sculpture – realism, idealism, harmony of form – held a great appeal to the Romans. Where the Greeks treated art almost as a form of religious expression, the Romans seem to have treated it more like a commodity.

This lecture and discussion, however, is not about the uniqueness of Roman art, so much as the importance of the Romans for the continuation and propagation of the Greek art style and its eventual incorporation into the later artistic traditions of Europe. Chances are, the building you’re sitting in, or some museum or civic building your student has ever been to borrows elements of Roman architecture. The great demand for art in Rome, especially among the Roman elite, means that the sheer volume of Roman art dwarfs that of any previous civilization. There is much to look at.

Ancient Roman art history is particularly fertile material for arguing the continued relevance of ancient art to students, offering an opportunity to answer the perennial question: “Why should I care about this?”

This is the third in a series of lectures on ancient art – $25 to attend
Coming soon: Ancient Chinese Art.

In 2009 he received the Revelle College Outstanding Faculty Award in recognition of his excellence in teaching.
