CONTEMPORARY ART QUILTS & FIBER ARTS WORKSHOP

AKIKO SUZUKI / japan:

is an award winning fiber artist whose practice has pioneered the forward movement of the Contemporary Art Quilt in Japan and throughout the world via exhibition and workshops. Surprisingly, the introduction of the Western traditional 
quilt to Japan took place only in the 1970's, adding another layer to the rich tapestry of Japanese and Asian interpretations of functional and ornamental fiber works.

AKIKO SUZUKI:

COPY THE INVISIBLE UNIVERSE ONTO THE SKIN OF CLOTH

SEWING SOUNDS THAT OTHERWISE CANNOT BE HEARD

TO SHARE MY POETRY WITH YOU

WITH SCISSORS, THREAD, NEEDLE AND SEWING MACHINE

AND CONTINUE THIS CREATIVE IMPULSE TILL

THE END OF THE WORLD

"We will create new free-style mixed-media quilts without limitation of technique, materials or tradition.
Hand stitching or sewing machine techniques are available but most important is your attitude of openess and exploration; what you feel and the intention you bring to the workshop. Participants are encouraged to bring their own materials
and hand stitching tools, but are offered my own original stamped and dyed materials as well."

Awards:
2013 Quilt Nihon Exhibition “Seto Award” (Japan)
2010 Quilt Nihon Exhibition (Japan)
2006 Husqvarna Viking Contest (USA)
2005 American Quilter's Society (USA)
Pacific International Quilt Festival (USA)
2001 International Quilt Week Yokohama (japan)
2000 American Quilter's Society (USA)

NEW DRAWING & PAINTING WORKSHOP :GREGORY J. ROSE / usa

"My work is rooted in how narrative intersects with collective memory. The use of fragments is attuned to the notion of scar tissue, 
with the combination of visual language co-opted from the urban landscape, and the history of abstraction in drawing and painting. 
Intimacy, in the moment of violence and intense energy, seems to be what really is the main vein running through my work."

Rose is a graduate of Pennsylvania State University, he received his Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree in 2000, and received his 
Master of Fine Arts Degree from the University of Minnesota in 2004 with a concentration in Drawing and Painting. 
Gregory has been teaching in the Minnesota State Colleges and Universities system since 2003 and is Fine Arts Faculty at 
Minneapolis Community and Technical College.

MOVING BEYOND THE CANVAS : THE BODY IN MOTION 
( an ORGANIC TRAINING WORKSHOP)

French dancer, choreographer and visual artist MACHA MELANIE is the newest addition to the workshop roster
of GLOBAL ART PROJECT and joins us after extensive experience in collaborative dance and directed
movement exercises whose aim is total involvement of the body, the senses and the creative impulses
culminating in a liberating experience designed to inform the practice of any artist or anyone interested
in the process of becoming a more "in-touch" creative being. If you can move you can take this workshop.
All levels of experience or interest in the arts are encouraged to participate.

MACHA MELANIE: 
"This workshop is structured around a research project: that of a state being. It requires no technical

expertise. Students follow the path of their own dance. It begins with stretching (inspired from yoga),

and extends through directed improvisations, where we explore the infinite treasures of dancing

(exterior space, inner space, the game of bones which slide inside the flesh, the sensitivity of the skin ...

the exchange between the body and gravity, relative to the ground, air, music ...). Listening to our

"dancing beast", these workshops have always improved the merits of movement, trust and harmony

within the group, and the famous “letting go” that allows you to be fully available to innovate! Once

fluidity is found in the body through improvisations, it can be expressed in other ways (automatic

drawing etc.)"

Leah Garchik / sf chronicle/ sf gate: 2/28/13
Public transportation gets around, even to Europe. "Bus Portraits," a show of works shot on Muni by San Francisco artist Carl Heyward, will be at the Garage 21 gallery in Ceglie Messapica, Italy, in April. Some of the portraits were made from the back; others are face forward. But most of the subjects, says the photographer, "were not aware that they were being photographed, which I believe is essential to the integrity of these honest, candid and unguarded works." (This statement, of course, does not apply to Muni's own cameras, capturing moving images of everyday life onboard.)
Says the artist, "I am struck by the adamant presence of solitude, the demand for a sense of safety and distance even when we are stacked one upon the other on public transit."
Heyward is hoping to show them one day in a San Francisco gallery.
