#14 Artist : Isabelle GLAIZE






".... si jamais tu mets un texte à l'appui de mes photos et si tu fais référence au magazine du westchester, je tiens à préciser qu'il s'est glissé une petite erreur dans mon profil. Je ne travaille plus au Clay art Center, mais Au Art Life Studio de Port Chester sous la Direction de Ron. C'est un atelier qui permet le travail de la terre, du bois et de la pierre. Bref, tout ce que j'aime.Isa

NdlR:(Pour info) Il se trouve que Marie WYATT, a l'origine de l'organisation de la premiere promenade des Artistes et qui depuis a demenage a Bruxelles , a egalement travaille dans cet atelier. Myra Lehman, egalement sculptrice exposant a la premiere promenade chez Marie y travaille toujours. Myra a recu de nombreux awards, notamment au Rye Arts Center juge par Thom Collins, directeur du Neuberger Museum of Art...Que le monde est petit!





PS Avec les photos d'aujourd'hui, voici 2 indices pour retrouver les artistes presentes sur le carton d'annonce de la Promenade des Artistes...
Certes, certains (les mauvaises langues..) pourraient dire que je privilegie legerement les artistes presents au 1027 Constable Drive,....Vraiment? Non....Juste un concours de circonstances, apres avoir presente tous les artistes m'ayant repondu,..

Curieux de connaitre .....

Curieuse, Curieux de connaitre .....qui expose a la promenade des artistes et de mettre un nom sur toutes ces petites photos qui composent notre carton d'annonce?
J'ai la reponse officielle......\........demain....j'enleve le voile sur les photos de 2 colonnes du haut...

Fabrice Puissant en personne:

Si vous voulez parler a Fabrice Puissant a propos de ces creations...voila a qui s'adresser:

Et toujours chez Fabienne et Luc



de FABRICE PUISSANT
Voici des photos de présentoirs lumineux.
Depuis quelques années, je travaille a l'intégration d'éléments lumineux a base de LED insérés dans des supports en bois. La technique des LED par sa très faible température permet pour la première fois de s'affranchir des dispositifs de refroidissement ou d'isolation. J'ai dernièrement mis au point des chevalets de table utilisant cette technique. Composé d''un cube en bois précieux renfermant une LED et sa pile bouton et d'un porte nom en plexiglass qui lorsqu'il est eclairé émet une lueur bleue très fine qui luit sur le contour de la plaque. La plaque de plexiglass peut soit recevoir un bout de film imprimable transparent ou être directement calligraphiée avec un feutre doré par exemple.

des dessins de New York..notamment..Il s'agit de sa premiere Promenade des Artistes..
Bienvenu Andre

FUN FUN FUN..........

This is always a big part of suspense in this event.
How many houses? Which houses? Am I going to be with my friends? Will I have enough space /light?..In most cases, it goes very smoothly and the real challenge is organizing a nice lunch so we all can share it..
Because in the end.................What really matters?
Showing and Selling , yes of course and certainly for the 2 charities which will receive 15% of it.. but also and "surtout"
FUN FUN FUN FUN FUN FUN FUN FUN FUN FUN FUN FUN FUN FUN FUN FUN FUN FUN
because life is short and friends are important..........
This comment only engages its writer......

As we are entering the last week before Friday when starts "The promenade des Artistes", I will give you details on who is where as you might want to first go and see someone you have seen the last past years.....

Who wants to play?


Just a little game...
Would you be able to name all the artists showing their work on the Postcard?
If yes , and with no help from the designer, PLEASE LET US KNOW
use the reply comments to share with us all the artists' names

PS It sounds like a question that our team of the RALLYE Mille borne de New York could ask....

Artist #11 Elaine Mokhtefi...is also back



Elaine Mokhtefi is a painter. She’s a New Yorker who lived for so many years in Paris and Algiers that she admits to being totally confused as to where her emotional identity hails from. She paints what she sees: portraits, landscapes, still life.
At this year’s Promenade, she will be showing a series of paintings of the New Mexican mesa in the region around Taos. She will also show portraits of New Yorkers of varied backgrounds and ethnicities, as well as some still life. She has a website: elainemokhtefi.com


In addition to painting, she has written travel guides to Paris and to France for a New York publishing house and books for young adults for French publishers, one about the black neighborhoods of New York and one about the Civil War. Her most recent publication is Paris: an illustrated history (Hippocrene Books, New York ) a brief history of that marvelous city.

#9 Welcome again Louda


"Jordan"
Louda came to Paris from Moscow in 1996 with of admiration and curiosity for
French culture. With diplomas in hand from Fine Arts and Textile academies,
she arrived full of wild ideas and with a few swatches of hand made fabrics,
which were the result of her experimentations in developing new textile
techniques.
Miracles happened… Chanel Couture was her first client! Then followed artistic
collaborations with Dior, Lacroix, Ungaro, Mugler and etc.
The next miracle happened in New York in 2002. She was shopping at Bergdorf
Goodman wearing a Louda jacket when she was noticed. Now Bergdorf Goodman was
buying Louda’s clothes. Neiman Marcus came next. America stimulates her to
create and produce more and more for the Louda label. She loves it! She works
on each piece as if it were a painting. They are all one of a kind, timeless,
never out of date, out of touch, out of fashion and always evolving.

(#6) Laurence Neron-Bancel is still showing at the Promenade des Artistes


I Love New York 2007 by Laurence Neron-Bancel

I'm not the only one "still" showing at the Promenade des Artistes.

I'm 100% sure that Nadine Jalem and I did show at the "first" promenade on a Sunday in 2001. We were in the same house at Marie Wyatt's house in Rye. We won't be able to show it to you now as it has been demolished ...Ah America...
I do remember 4 artists showing with us , 2 of them I still meet: Mimi Stuart and Myra Lehman...Looking at artists having shown at the Promenade will be the subject of another serie of posts!

Concerning my work, it has changed a lot ...At that time, I was still influenced by England and had realized an "assemblage" about playing golf, special command for Richard' birthday and another one with Tennis Racquet..
I've started showing "more traditionnal" collages in 2002 when the Promenade des Artistes took place in Mamaroneck and Scarsdale; my neighbor's (at the time Muriel and Vincent Aniort)and my house were among the 5 houses open.
Since then, I've shown in 4 times in Larchmont! In 2003,I've shown in an historical house that you wouldn't be able to recognize as it hasn't been destroyed but beautifully refurbished: the not any more little Gingerhouse.
In 2005,2006, 2007,I've been welcomed in the same house by the same couple! Denise and John have been since the beginning strong supporters of the promenade; Denise designed the logo with the door and brushes than you can see on the top of the page. This year, I'm showing in the same house than in 2004 but not with the same host. The view hasn't changed though and is worth visiting us.
Thank you Fabienne et Luc.. See you soon

#3 Meet Marie-France Hickman


HI MY WEBSITE IS www.mariehickman.com
Click on VEER and MONSOONIMAGES on the home page.

Merci Marie-France Hickman


To give you an idea about Marie-France, on her website you can read: .....

Some call fate, while others deem it coincidence. Whatever the cause, professional photographer/photojournalist is passionate about her work.

Born of an American father and French mother, Marie Hickman spent her childhood summers on the French Riviera. Her youthful exposure to the vast waters of the Mediterranean as well as a plethora of artists helped her passion for vibrant colors to grow as a child. Naturally, when it came time to choose a field of study, Hickman graduated early within the Honors Program at Marymount College with a Bachelor of Fine Arts; after graduating, she studied Lithography at Pratt Graphic Center.


Working in Provence with Lucian Clergue, Picasso's photographer, and world-renowned photographer, Michael Kenna, took her skills to a higher level. Her passion for art expanded to various paths including commercial illustration, graphic design and art. She began work as an Assistant Art Director at various publications including Marriott Inn Magazine and Northwestern Mutual Life Magazine. Her fundamental experience allowed her to land a position as a Creative Director of SKIING MAGAZINE where she traveled extensively for fashion shoot and layouts, that sometimes incorporated olympic athletes, including gold medalists and several well known actors. In addition to the magazine, she produced a yearly 300-page fashion/trade book for 14,000 people within the skiing industry.

She has an abiding passion for the art, culture and music of Africa.

As a teacher, she has developed programs for all ages based on recycling varied materials to make craft objects with an African inspiration.
