    Sparks fly when different disciplines collide. Visual artists respond to poets and spoken word artists create works based on paintings.
    Join us as we discuss the intersection of visual art and poetry. Poets will join us with their works and how they find inspiration in visual art. Ekphrasis: Using Art to Inspire Poetry is a tradition that goes far back in time....The earliest and best known example of ekphrasis is the long description of the shield made by Hephaistos and given to Achilles by his mother Thetis. (The passage is found in Book 18 of the Iliad.)

    Wanda's Picks Radio Show Special Tribute to Kiilu Nyasha

    in Art

    This is a black arts and culture site. We will be exploring the African Diaspora via the writing, performance, both musical and theatrical (film and stage), as well as the visual arts of Africans in the Diaspora and those influenced by these aesthetic forms of expression. I am interested in the political and social ramifications of art on society, specifically movements supported by these artists and their forebearers. It is my claim that the artists are the true revolutionaries, their work honest and filled with raw unedited passion. They are our true heroes. Ashay! For the first part of the program we honor Iya Kiilu Nyasha, Freedom Fighter, a woman whose life was dedicated to the People. Visit http://kiilunyasha.blogspot.com/ We close with the Zimbabwean ensemble KTO cofounders who have a series of shows coming up at Ashkenaz Music and Dance Center, April 19 & 21. www.ashkenaz.com

    Keep Going

    Trying to make work, in whatever form, when you can't see what path to follow is difficult. Debilitating might be a better word. So, should we support a culture telling you what path to take or give you the freedom to choose?

    Art Cry Radio - Guest: NeoSoul R&B Smooth Jazz artist Don'Dre

    in Art

    Art Cry Radio is a show dedicated to finding and featuring Art andd creativity in all forms.
    Don'dré, a native and resident of Chicago, IL was immersed in music even before his formal, academic education. At 5 years old he began elementary school, piano lessons, and choral training concurrently. At adolescence, he formal training focused strictly on vocal while he began his creative pursuits through instruments. As high school began, Don'dré expanded those pursuits to songwriting, production, and eventually recording. He went on to study music at Alabama A&M University where he developed his skills as a performer, director, house engineer, bassist and organist. He graduated in 2003 with a B.S. in Music Business and returned to Chicago to pursue his career.
    Though most of his musical occupations were through churches, which he credits for his gifts and successes, he grew independently by using every tool in his arsenal to support aspiring artists. In so doing, he has elevated his craft of creating music to its apex. "My motivation is to create music out of emotions so that its more than just a tune, but an inspiration. A theme to life. A call to action." His mission now is to reach others with his the messages in his original, soulful compositions, and encourage the masses to be true to the essence of who they are.

    Chapter One: God was there ALL Along!

    in Art

    Throughout the Bible (1st Peter 3:15; Mark 5:19 and Psalm 146), we are reminded of the importance of testifying to God's faithfulness, loving-kindness and righteousness. Please note that "Seeking Joy-fully! by way of the Holy Spirit seeks to bring light to those things that are not spoken of and kept in the dark. It's not until we talk about these things do we come to a better understanding of what has held us in bondage and oftentimes keeps us in it
    Psalm 71:15-18 Amplified Bible (AMP)
    15  My mouth shall tell of Your righteousness And of Your [deeds of] salvation all day long, For their number is more than I know. 16  I will come with the mighty acts of the Lord God [and in His strength]; I will make mention of Your righteousness, Yours alone.
    17  O God, You have taught me from my youth, And I still declare Your wondrous works and miraculous deeds. 18  And even when I am old and gray-headed, O God, do not abandon me, Until I declare Your [mighty] strength to this generation, Your power to all who are to come.

    Living Master Artist Virgil Elliott on Art from the Renaissance to the Present

    in Art

    What does it take to make art now at the level of Renaissance Art? Why is it important to do so? Join us as artist Virgil Elliott talks about painting, drawing, music, technique, and teaching.
    Painter/writer Virgil Elliott (born 1944) is best known as the author of the book, Traditional Oil Painting: advanced techniques and concepts from the Renaissance to the present, published in 2007 by Watson-Guptill Publications. Acknowledged as a Living Master by the Art Renewal Center, among the many honors and awards he has received over the years, Virgil is widely recognized as an expert on historic oil painting techniques and oil painting materials of the past and present.  He has written and published articles on the working methods and/or lives of Rembrandt, Titian, Frans Hals, Artemisia Gentileschi, and the 19th Century French artist William Bouguereau, among other things. He taught oil painting at the College of Marin, in Marin County, California for a few years, and has taught privately since 1982. 
    He has been an active participant/member of ASTM International’s Subcommittee on Artists’ Paints and Materials since 1997, which experience has broadened his knowledge of artists’ materials considerably and has made him the acquaintance of many experts in the field, including top-level conservation scientists from major museums, from whom he says he has learned a great deal over the years.
    Virgil Elliott keeps a studio in California’s Wine Country, where he paints, teaches and writes, and lives with his wife, singer/actress Annie Lore.  From time to time he has “moonlighted” as a musician, playing guitar and Renaissance lute, both as a solo instrumentalist and occasionally as accompanist to various vocalists. He feels that music and visual art complement one another.
