Since 2010 the Chalk Festival has displayed the largest gathering of 3D illusions in one location than any other place or any other time in the history of the art form. Innovator of 3D pavement art form, Kurt Wenner, will be creating a piece alongside other world-record holders from all over the world.

3D illusions make the road surface appear to dip inward or rise above as the artists paint intricate designs that become interactive when finished. These illusions are all sorts of sizes from 12 feet and up to 100 feet, taking artists 3-8 days to complete. They are created by one artist or sometimes a teams of artists, depending on the size.

Most 3D illusions will be completed or close to completed by November 11th, when the festival first opens.

Mary GrandPré to Design 2013 Bradenton Blues Festival Poster

Mary GrandPré to Design 2013 Bradenton Blues Festival Poster
The Harry Potter illustrator is creating a limited-edition poster for the second annual Bradenton Blues Festival.

(Bradenton, FL) Mary GrandPré, the celebrated illustrator best known for her cover and chapter illustrations for the American editions of the Harry Potter books, has signed on for a second year to create the poster for the Bradenton Blues Festival. Proceeds from sales of the limited-edition poster and original artwork will benefit the festival’s youth outreach programs, including “Blues in the Schools.”

“We’re thrilled that Mary GrandPré has agreed to once again illustrate the Bradenton Blues Festival poster,” says Johnette Isham, executive director of Realize Bradenton, the organization behind the Bradenton Blues Festival. “Last year’s striking poster was iconic—an instant classic. It also became a coveted collector’s item and helped us raise much-needed funds for our youth education programs. We’re grateful to Mary for her generosity and dedication to this festival and to our community.”

As she did last year, GrandPré will work closely with designer Paula Murray of ArteFact Design to create the poster. Murray also designed the festival’s popular logo that graces print ads, billboards, t-shirts and caps.

Both women fill the soundtrack of their lives with the blues. Murray is a blues drummer, and GrandPré fills her studio with the music of such blues giants as Keb’ Mo’, Taj Mahal and Etta James. “It’s a treat to be able to work together on a project that fuses our love of art and music—and also benefits our community and its youth,” says GrandPré.

According to Isham, only 200 limited-edition copies of the 2013 poster, signed by the artist, will be available for sale. Isham says the 2013 posters will be available for purchase for $50 starting October 15 at Keeton’s Office & Art Supply, 817 Manatee Avenue West in downtown Bradenton. GrandPré’s original artwork will be auctioned off on the day of the festival. For more information, about purchase of the 2013 Bradenton Blues Festival poster or original artwork, contact Morgan Bettes of Realize Bradenton at Morgan@RealizeBradenton.com. Subject line should read: “Bradenton Blues Festival: Inquiry about 2013 poster.”

ArtSlam – Realize Bradenton

October 15, 2011
As part of Festival sARTe′e, this second annual event in downtown Bradenton features hundreds of artists, musicians and performers, site-specific art installations, and interactive art experiences.

October 15, 2011 (3pm-11pm)

(Bradenton, FL) Organizers at Realize Bradenton announce the second annual ArtSlam, a celebration of the arts featuring hundreds of artists, musicians, performers, installation art, and interactive art experiences, Saturday, October 15, 3-11 p.m., along downtown Bradenton’s Old Main Street. For a complete schedule of events and locations, visit www.RealizeBradenton.com or contact Johnette Isham, at 941-350-8563.

According to Realize Bradenton’s executive director, Johnette Isham, this family-friendly festival features “out-of-the-box” performance art, theater, dance, music, video art, and even an “art fashion show.” Isham says the festival is largely interactive with plenty of opportunities for audiences to become part of the art and performances. “People will be able to work on a potter’s wheel, help paint a community mural, create art from recyclables, and dance to the music of a number of bands.” Other activities include body-painting, marionette shows, a custom skateboard park and the nighttime release of a thousand paper airplanes. There will be a food court and downtown Bradenton restaurants and pubs will also participate.

Isham explains that ArtSlam installations will be created “live” along Old Main Street during the eight-hour festival. “Because there is no set theme, collaborative teams will creatively use existing streetscape sites while engaging the general public in a brief contemporary art experience,” she says.

Art Slam 2011 is organized by Realize Bradenton, a non-profit organization that builds community and promotes economic development through collaborative events, partnerships, and interactive strategies. For more information about Realize Bradenton, visit www.realizebradenton.com.

The following line-up includes some of the participating artists and performers:

Body Art Slam (Barbara Tapley-Kenney, Brandon Sommers of Classic Ink and Southeast High School’s Visual & Performing Arts Academy.) Classic Ink and Southeast High School collaborate to create family-friendly body-painting and a body-painting installation with live models, which will culminate in a body “sculpture” window display inside the Classic Ink storefront. This is an audience interactive art project.

Community Totem Poles from Clay (Gretchen Leclezio and Palmetto Art Center) During the day, with six throwing wheels, Gretchen Leclezio and instructors will assist the ArtSlam audience to create a number of clay vessels and pieces during two, 30-minute sessions. The creations will be assembled into sculptural totem poles. The sculptures will be painted and embellished, during the last several hours of ArtSlam to create an organic, communal sculptural piece.

1,111 Windows to the Soul (Mike Bowen of Bowen Imagery) Visionary artist Michael Bowen illustrates that we really are all connected. Using light, rather than pigment, and occasional rhythmic percussion, rather than melody; he takes the viewer to explore the connections between races, ages, and genders. This project includes a video presentation in the 4th Ave. performance area after dusk. Check schedules at ArtSlam info tent, mainstage, or 4th Ave. performance area for time of video presentation.

Building Community (Leymis Bolanis Wilmott, Alyson Dolan, and Fuzion Dance) Fuzión Dance Artists, along with visual artists, musicians, and professional and student performers, will work together to create a live installation. This multi-media and multi-sensory installation will be constantly changing as dancers sculpt their bodies in and around the streetscape as it is manipulated by fellow artists. The team will also present several of their previous performances.

Little Chalkers (Denise Kowal, producer of the Sarasota Chalk Festival)
The young and young at heart are invited to participate in this interactive event to create their own mini-masterpieces, using chalk as their medium and the street surface as their canvas. Their mini-masterpieces will be a part of a day-long puzzle that will respect individuality through a project that creates unity.

Re-Cycle of Seasons (Lyndsay Martinez-Gordon and the Starlette Sisters) The public will be given a new outlook on what can be done with common things they would usually throw away or put into recycle bins. Event attendees will be invited to make their choice of several recycled art designs, then personalize them to hang in trees for nighttime illumination; or they can take their creations home with them.

Old Main Puppet Improv (Jo-Ellen Gorris of the Village of the Arts and team) An assortment of unique, self-designed and constructed puppets will entertain and interact with the audience on two specially-designed stages. Talented puppets will also paint portraits and tell fortunes. The puppets will be free to wander the streetscape and interact with the public.

Writings on the Wall (Erica Lindegren and the New College of Florida Dance Collective) This piece explores the intersections between discursive language and interpersonal connections, illuminating how it can be embodied, or inked, physically and emotionally, onto our bodies. Movement becomes spoken word, becomes text, and influenced by other group members, returns to the original sentence phrasing.

Manatee County Memories (Sarah Taylor and team) Various memories and history from residents of Manatee County will be collected and recorded prior to the day of ArtSlam. These, combined with memories and histories of ArtSlam attendees, will be represented with imagery painted onto hand-carved wooden pieces. Assembled, the pieces will form a large 3-D puzzle of a manatee.

Community Murals (Debra Gallery and a team of instructors and young students from ArtCenter Manatee) The audience is invited to assist in the creation of three large mural pieces that will be hung in an art studio at the ArtCenter Manatee facility after ArtSlam. One will represent collage, another an underwater theme, and the third expressionist work.

Elision (Paul Ramshaw, Frank Enright, Jeff Hazelton and team) This conceptual piece brings together musicians, dancers, and video artists in a collaboration that references local and national issues, and elaborates on them to create an expressive media performance. The performance includes Courtney Smith and members of the Moving Ethos Dance Company. This project includes a video presentation in the 4th Ave. performance area after dusk.

Time to Fish (Kathy Fitzgerald and Georgette D’Amelio of Bayshore High School) A sculpture created by using assorted gadgets and found objects to print with paint on precut, primed, metal fish shapes. The fish will be embellished with watch parts, and assembled into a large sculptural piece. A children’s printmaking activity will be ongoing while the aluminum sculpture is being constructed.

Art in the Air (Claudia Deschu, John Kokajko, and team) Audience participants (with assistance from volunteers) will fold 10 different types of planes, blimps and helicopters from colorful paper to prepare for a choreographed evening launch from the balcony, which will be accompanied by music and recorded by photographer John Kokajko. During the day, Kokajko will capture images of participants and immediately print out postcards to mail directly from ArtSlam.

ArtDeckO (Geza Darrah, crew and team) ArtDeckO is a one-day community “pop up” skateboard park and art project. It is its own world; built of the positivity, creativity, and energy of skateboarding as both an art form and a culture—from a local perspective. Half pipe, quarter pipes, ramps, painters, videographers, live bands, and a team competition video open to the public. Bring your video camera and enter.

A-maze-in’ Art (Steve McAllister and a collective of artists) Based on the wisdom of the ages that runs through our various traditions, the passage through the Labyrinth of the Unbroken Path will take voyagers through the path of higher consciousness to the heart of who we are as a people. Various artists have been selected to express particular stages of the journey. The end result is a community-based, interactive piece of installation art that is beautiful, creative, and consciousness-raising.

Out of the Box performances, a new addition to ArtSlam, feature local musicians, dancers, theatrical and poetic artists taking the stage to present their unique and individual talents. These performances are 3-11 p.m., and will rotate between two performance areas: The mainstage on Old Main Street near Manatee Avenue, and the 4th Avenue performance area, near the intersection of Old Main Street and 4th Avenue. The schedule features performances by The Open Door Band, Atlantico Tropical, Passerine, Blue Star, the RJ Howson Band, Bayside Community Church Band, student dancers and performers from New College, and Tapped-In, a dance troupe from Tampa, as well as additional performers and acts.

Kurt Wenner – Instructional Demonstration
“Perspective, 3D, Illusion Techniques”
One of the great myths of our time is that humans “see like a camera”. Photography is widely believed to be a major force in the demise of academic figurative traditions in the visual arts and in the birth of modernism. Humans do not see like a camera and before the invention of photography, artists never felt responsible for replicating nature. Perspective illusions are the outward projection of human experience and imagination from the back of the eye onto surfaces in the physical world. Wenner will discuss the history of illusion and demonstrate the mathematical solutions to ancient problems in depiction. This will be a hands on interactive class.

“Classical Drawing”
Classical drawing is often misunderstood as a style of art. Instead, it is a language of depiction that encompasses many historical and personal styles. The structure of classicism is rooted in ancient principles of sacred geometry and human perception. No other artistic language has surpassed its ability to communicate form and space to the viewer. Wenner will demonstrate that a classical drawing is fundamentally both “abstract” in structure and “pure” in design.

Kurt Wenner – Lecture
“Architecture and Architecture Detailing”
Classical architecture in the ancient world was based on precise mathematical principles of symmetry. Proportion is a form of symmetry that requires all of the parts of a building to maintain a precise relationship to the whole. Decorative elements of a building must therefore be designed and fabricated in order to make an architectural design into a unified work of art. This lecture will discuss both the design and production of original architectural details.

“History of Pavement Art”
Pavement art has a rich, colorful, and varied history that is often “simplified to the point of being wrong”, by writers who have little personal experience with the various traditions or the protagonists. Wenner will describe the cultural roots and methods of the italian madonnari, the German strassenmaler, and the British screevers. All of these cultural traditions have been used as a foundation for the current emergence of pavement art as a global artistic phenomenon, which still provides opportunities for artists and students. Rare photos and engravings of historical pavement artists will accompany the lecture/slideshow.
