A&E Q&A: Artist finds gold as part of unique style | Community News

The glimmer of the gold-leaf artwork at artist Julie Wheeler’s table caught my eye.

This took place as I walked around the vendor’s displays at the new Cuban Gypsy Parlor’s 1st Friday “Gypsy Market” on Oct. 2.

I met an author there, too, who I will profile next week, too.

Wheeler hails from Cleveland, Ohio, but studied graphic design and painting at Loyola University in New Orleans. She’s been in Summerville for two years now, having relocated from Charlotte.

Regan: You began art as a little girl with a crayon? Did your teachers say you had artistic talent growing up?

Wheeler: When I was young, I could never color inside the lines, both figuratively and literally. I would always go against the grain of any assigned art project. This got a lot of attention when I was in grade school. My projects

Artist Amalia Ulman Will Become a Model-for-Hire in a New Exhibition Held in a Very Exotic, Very Secret Location: the Dark Web

New artworks by six contemporary artists, including Amalia Ulman, David Horvitz, and Joshua Citarella, are going onto the dark web next month as part of “Time Out of Joint,” a new exhibition curated by New York-based artistic partners Eva and Franco Mattes.

The show, which is part of the online-only Yerevan Biennial, can only be accessed through a special browser. 

Worried about web safety? As far as internet activities go, getting on the dark web is about as safe as surfing Amazon (perhaps even more so, many would argue). But the location is sure to scare some people—and that’s the point. 

“One of the goals of this show is to bring people to a place they are not familiar with—even if it’s just one click away,” Eva and Franco Mattes tell Artnet News over email.

The two golliwog dolls up for sale at the Kaiapoi Collective in North Canterbury.

When Jacqui Buchanan was given two handmade dolls to sell in her North Canterbury shop, she did not anticipate a backlash.

Buchanan is the face behind The Kaiapoi Collective – a gift shop giving retail space to more than 60 local groups and individuals to sell their creations.

On Friday she advertised the dolls on her Facebook page.

“Beautiful, handmade dolls only two in stock,” the post read, above a photo of two golliwogs.

Artist Couture’s Angel Merino On Representation in Beauty, His Mom’s Influence and More

Angel Merino is a force to be reckoned with in the beauty industry.

From launching his beauty brand Artist Couture before influencers and celebrities entered the space to encouraging individuality since the very beginning, it’s no wonder Angel is a social media sensation.

As for what sets the YouTuber apart even more? Angel understands and knows the importance of inclusivity.

Ahead of Hispanic Heritage Month (or Latinx Heritage Month as it has been referred to in recent years), the beauty mogul released a vibrant line of makeup products inspired by his Latinx heritage.

“For the longest time I wanted to do something where it felt super Spanish and Latinx,” Angel tells E! News. “It’s the first time I’ve done anything that highlights my heritage and my culture.”

The Caliente Collection features a wildly colorful eight-shade eyeshadow palette, a fiery red lipstick and two dazzling lip glosses. “These colors represent passion,

Artist Couture’s Angel Merino Opens Up About Representation in Beauty – E! Online

E! News: Why was it important for you to pay tribute to your heritage with the Caliente Collection?

Angel Merino: “We’ve been working on this collection for quite some time now, but I felt it was so needed during this time. We really need to amplify voices and really spotlight communities that haven’t been in the past. When I had my meeting with Sephora, when we pitched them my idea of this collection, they were super, super excited because they were like, ‘We have nothing in our environment that looks like this.’ I felt it was such a void that needed to be filled.”

E! News: Speaking of that, how does it feel to have a brand that adds representation and inclusivity to the beauty industry?

Collaborating artist and model say they will no longer work with Vancouver fashion designer

An Indigenous artist who has collaborated with Vancouver fashion designer Chloë Angus says he will no longer work with her in response to concerns about cultural appropriation and misleading marketing.

Kwakwaka’wakw artist Steve Smith said on Monday that he is retracting an earlier statement of support for Angus and cutting off his professional relationship with Chloë Angus Design.

He joins Linnea Dick, who has modelled for Angus’s catalogues and runway shows, in reconsidering the collaboration.

Dick, an orator and writer of Kwakwaka’wakw, Nisga’a and Tsimshian descent, published an open letter this weekend that says she feels “betrayed, misled, and deceived” by the designer.

“It’s no longer good enough for allies to provide opportunities for Indigenous people while still holding the strings behind the scenes, but rather essential now to empower Indigenous communities to create these opportunities and collaborations on their own terms,” Dick writes.

“This can’t happen with non-Indigenous ‘allies’

How Artist Cade Kegerreis Connects People With His Paintings and Clothing Brand DVLVD

Press release content from Accesswire. The AP news staff was not involved in its creation.

NEW YORK, NY / ACCESSWIRE / October 1, 2020 / When people think of art, the first thing that usually comes to their mind is a framed canvas with some masterpiece oil painting at the center. But over the years, people have delved away from the typical canvas and have turned to other materials for their works. DVLVD (or Devolved) is among the companies that bring art to everyday use.

DVLVD was birthed from the mind of 23-year-old Cade Kegerreis, an artist in Waco, Texas. He graduated in 2017 with a degree in studio arts, and since then has been working as a full-time artist. After finishing college, he went through a wide range of jobs that fell into his creative field.
