#TBM Artist Interview: WAV Artist Vonder Gray

self
#Throw Back Mondays (originally posted 8/22/10)
Vonder Gray is another artist at the WAV who has been involved with art and acting for over twenty years. Gray describes her art as “abstract expressionist”.  “The color, the brush strokes, the markings if you will, are all conceived at an emotional level that informs the work both on the surface and beneath the surface”. Gray went on to say that she “is always interested in what’s behind the façade of a painting and of a person”.

#TBM Artist Interview: WAV Artist Taras Tulek 1946 - 2014


our lady of black light#Throw Back Mondays (originally posted 8/22/10)
At about 22-years-old, Taras Tulek pursued art for only two reasons.
“I wanted to help people. I wanted to challenge myself,” says Tulek, who will turn 64 this month.
Wishing to pursue a job that allowed him to assist others who suffer mentally, Tulek was on-path towards earning a degree in psychiatry. But then, he changed his mind.
“I decided that I could really challenge myself by being an artist,” says Tulek, who believes he could serve the same role of assisting others as an artist.
“I could then give the same comfort to people through art, and really express … the awesomeness of existence to other people.”

#Throw Back Mondays (originally posted 8/10/10)
As a playwright, a poet, a painter, and a print-maker, Frances Spencer has firmly planted herself in both the world of art and the world of writing and drama--but there really is not much of a distinction to be found there. Spencer has lived and enjoyed her two passions thoroughly through her experimenting and conceiving and creating.

#TBM Artist Interview- WAV Resident Luther Gerlach

#Throw Back Mondays (originally posted 8/10/10)
Edward Weston’s vintage classical photography took simple subjects--the naked body or a simple plant--and transformed each into something magnificent through his genius use of the camera and the darkroom. Luther Gerlach is one of many who studied Weston’s work and immediately became enthralled with his skill--both technical and visual.

#TBM Artist Interview- WAV Resident Erin O’Brien

#Throw Back Mondays (originally posted 8/10/10)
Erin O’Brien Brings Your Walls to Life
Upon entering O’Brien’s studio the first item that catches your attention is a life like painting of three young boys. The painting was immaculate; the clarity was so precise that I could’ve sworn it was in HD. The beauty of this painting reminded me of another great painting done by a superb renaissance artist: “Portrait of the Artist Brother and Sisters by Sofonisba Anguissola”. Once inside I had the pleasure to make the acquaintance of O’Brien’s dear friend Betty. O’Brien was very humble, and without the help of Betty I wouldn’t have been able to pry some of O’Brien’s outstanding accomplishments out of her.
