Mezzanine, an artist from Wilmington, prepares her art exhibition “Mezzmerizd: Dreaming Awake” at the ArtsCenter in Carrboro.

 

Both dreaming and reality will be laid bare in Mezzanine’s exhibition. Mezzanine, also known as Wendy Kowalski,an artist from Wilmington, explores not only the theme of dreaming as reality, but also the notion of art as a vehicle to a state of bliss.

An artist’s reception for the exhibit will be held on June 18 at the Carrboro ArtsCenter, featuring a fire troupe performance. Kowalski’s work will be on display from June 5 to June 30.

“It is a realm I get from transporting myself to in-between space, to a creative nonverbal plane that is kind of behind the scenes of our everyday lives. It’s just a matter of accessing it through art or through a loved one,” she said.

The ocean has also been a powerful source of inspiration for her. The ambiguous split between air and water take form in her paintings as the blurred line between dreaming and reality.

“It’s all one big environment,” Kowalski said.

Her other source of inspiration comes from flow and circus performers. Kowalski, who is trained in hoop and stilt dances as well as aerial, incorporates these experiences into her works with lines that conjure up the dynamics of flow, colors and brushstrokes that whirl, float, swivel and suspend.

Daniel Crabtree, also known as Sneaky McFly and a performer with the Unifire Theater , has been a subject of Kowalski’s portraits in the past. The company has been invited by Kowalski to perform at the exhibit’s reception.

“We use all the traditional fire arts, from New Zealand to Tahiti, and a lot of the times we tell a story with the fire,” he said. “Fire itself is an awakening.”

The exhibit will also feature the debut of Cirqusoria, three performers that will combine circus acts to tell a story.

Serena Leonard, a member of the team, said they have prepared a new production, “Dreaming Deeply,” to accompany the gallery’s theme for its the June 18 champagne reception.

The act was inspired by lucid dreaming, Leonard said. She said it’s about recognizing how each person’s dreams are tied to the the world and the people in it. “Nobody has success with their dreams, without other’s people’s happiness about,” she said.

Heather Gerni, gallery coordinator at the ArtsCenter, said she approached Kowalski about displaying her work in Carrboro after seeing her pieces at various art festivals.

“She’s a true visionary artist that has found the perfect combination of impressionist, classic and traditional art with her own unique, contemporary style,” Gerni said.

Chet Fisher’s newly reopened Era Gallery on the corner of Castle and 3rd sets itself apart. Its white exterior exudes an almost church-like presence. As someone who has been worshipping at the altar of art for several years, Fisher’s gallery is simply ethereal. The natural light illuminates the space and gives the artwork an otherworldly glow. With a very modern approach to living and business, Fisher maintains a gallery space in the front of the store and resides in the back. Delineating space with floor-to-ceiling beige curtains creates a sense that the gallery is floating.

mezza

For Era’s second show, Fisher will highlight a dear friend’s art work. Mezzanine—formerly known as Wendy Kowalski—and Fisher have known each other since 2005. This will be her last show locally before she moves to Santa Cruz to further pursue her artistic endeavors.

 

Entitled “Mezzmerizd: Dreaming Awake,” the exhibitionwill feature Mezzanine’s whimsical and mesmerizing paintings of circus performers and dancers, as well as a new 12-foot piece entitled “Chrysalis.” In Chrysalis, Mezzanine depicts women hanging from chords, which are meant to be cocoons. The painting seemingly represents transformation—especially personal transformation experienced by Mezzanine herself.

After studying to be a writer at University of Connecticut, Mezzanine moved to NYU where she began to frequent Webster Hall, a nightclub that had trapeze and dance performers. She became interested in their motions and saw similarities of the drama of a circus in everyday people. “Life is constantly in motion and that’s what I want to paint,” Mezzanine explains.

Her career interest as an artist grew after a friend asked her to read poetry at an event. “I started to create artwork to accompany my writing,” Mezzanine says. “I began to realize that I could better connect with people by creating works of art. Art became my narrative and my writing naturally evolved into paintings.”

A renewal of self led her to a new moniker, too: Mezzanine. “A mezzanine is an in-between space in architecture,” she explains. “For me it is the blissful place when creating art and poetry.”

Self-taught, Mezzanine’s detailed work is an impressionistic, colorful and blissful world of motion. The close relationships she culled with circus performers are apparent. “‘Dreaming Awake’ is when life is alive, hypnotic and magical,” she states. “It is heightened senses when the colors of a painting vibrate with such intensity as to be mesmerizing.”

Often using simple colors, attention to Mezzanine’s form and lines are allowed to shine. Her work possesses a fluidity evocative of art-deco artists, such as Alphonese Mucha, who, much like Mezzanine, were inspired by circus performers.

Very connected to her work, Mezzanine sees herself as a creative vessel to translate the narratives of universal, nonverbal language. “The artist makes a covenant between the visible plane [and] the invisible plane that runs behind the scenes,” she expands. Like her name, when she paints she is transported to another realm, a state of otherworldliness. Her figures reflect the purity of time and space. “When I paint these large scale works I move into a space of transcendence, moving to music, letting the figures and the floating elements come through me,” she says. “I speak, cry, dance with the painting until the figures breathe. I intend the viewer to be transported to this space I call ‘Nebulon.’”

Mezzanine’s figures breathe off the canvas. The effect that her work has on viewers is reflective of the new life Era is experiencing, as well as a spiritual and even religious power that art possesses.

In conjunction with her exhibition at Era, Mezzanine will have an exhibition at the Art Center of Carrboro which will also feature performers who inspired her work. From Cirquesora!, these entertainers will be performing with fire during a theater night on June 18th. The show will also feature the work of a New York performer, Christine Geiger.

“Mezzmerizd: Dreaming Awake” will be on display at Era through June 5th. For more information visit Era’s facebook page and www.artscenterlive.org for more information at the Carrboro performances.

(Artist’s note: I have applied for a show at the Cameron Art Museum… and I don’t recall saying this was my last Wilmington show… but sure is a rare one!! And yes I am moving to Santa Cruz, California!!) Also the act of becoming in Divine Chrysalis {painting} is a universal act of becoming, more than a personal one.

A look back at 10 local art triumphs

Published: Wednesday, December 28, 2011 at 9:37 a.m.
Last Modified: Wednesday, December 28, 2011 at 9:37 a.m.

This year was filled with intriguing installations, impressive murals, emerging artists and new art collectives of young and ambitious creatives working together.

Of course, there’s no way to sum up the entire art community with a top 10 list, so I won’t try. Instead, these are 2011’s exhibitions that best pulled together a collection of art to create a unique and cohesive experience.

10. ‘A Wild Assortment of Faces,’ Michelle Connolly’s Solo Show at 621N4TH

Michelle Connolly had her first big solo show at 621N4Th in February. More than 140 of her mixed-media paintings – portraits of animals and people that express a childlike playfulness with material and subject – were displayed together to create a concoction that was one part American South, one part tribal Africa and one part aboriginal outback with a dash of music to taste.

9. Tranport to Nebulon in ‘Amplify – Kowalski Paintings, Drawings, Sculpture, Kinetics and More’ at WHQR’s MC Erny Gallery

With receptions that featured electronic music and stilt-dancing flash mobs, Wendy Kowalski used all her resources to transport gallery-goers to Nebulon, the zero-gravity world within her multi-paneled s’fumato paintings where strawberries, jellyfish and skymaids all float with underwater grace through surreal skyscapes.

8. ‘Teacups and Sunsets,’ Gabriel Lehman at Bottega and One Wicked Gallery

In April, Gabriel Lehman did something sort of bold and unheard of: In addition to taking up the majority of Bottega’s wall space with a solo exhibition, Lehman also filled the walls of One Wicked Gallery with his cool-toned plaster paintings of spindly characters that reside in topsy-turvy treetop homes and soar through the air via balloons and oversized teacups. It took two solo shows to introduce viewers to Lehmen’s emotive atmosphere of adventure, and it hardly put a dent in his prolific output.

Star News – Escape to Nebulon by Justin Lacy

I have a feeling that Nebulon – a noun describing the setting of Wendy Kowalski’s paintings, where strawberries, jellyfish and skymaids all float through vivid skies with underwater grace – is less of a fictional place and more of a state of mind.

Kowalski intends to take Fourth Friday gallery-goers with her t0 Nebulon on Sept. 23. There are probably an infinite number of ways to get there, but “Carnival Finale,” the closing reception of“Amplify: Kowalski Paintings, Drawings, Sculpture, Kinetics and More” at WHQR’s MC Erny Gallery, sends viewers to Nebulon with three key ingredients:

1)  Electronic music. “Music is always a part of the artwork,” Kowalski told me while bringing new art up to the Warwick building’s third floor last week.  “I can’t paint unless I have music on.”

Kowalski is bringing in DJ Wes Shipley of Boone to fill WHQR’s usually-classical-jazz-and-folk soundscape with dubstep dance music.  This is vital for traveling to Nebulon.

“Electronic music is so transformative and integral to what I do,” wrote Kowalski in an email. “I really hope to take people to Nebulon with me.”

2)  Stilt-dancing flash mob. Stilt-walkers, jugglers, unicyclers, and aerialists inhabit the Nebulon of Kowalksi’s paintings, so it only makes sense that to get there, street performers must surround you.  Kowalski has invited Paige LaWall from Raleigh to hoop curbside in front of the Warwick building, along with a motley crew of other talented performers.  Kowalski herself plans to don her stilts.

3)  The Art.  Kowalksi’s paintings are transformative enough alone to send viewers to other worlds.   She has updated the exhibition with several works in time for the closing reception, including the show’s newest pièce de résistance, a triptych self portrait titled “Landing Pad.”  The three panels of wood depict Kowalski and another figure floating out of the open cockpit of an airplane through a cloud of berries and butterflies, leaving the necessary inventions of human aviation for the between-water-and-air atmosphere of Nebulon. 

“I think in the paintings,” Kowalski said, “I’m trying to just bring people to this world where the butterflies and the fish are.“

The opening reception is 6-9 p.m. in WHQR’s MC Erny Gallery.  The art hangs through Oct. 7.

The Juggling Gypsy’s reputation tends to fluctuate in this town. Labels like “hippie hookah place” or “burner dive bar” are pretty familiar to its staff. The old motto of the establishment was proudly known as “where the strange go to be normal,” and indeed the place has always drawn in a diverse crowd. But what remains is a love for creativity, and the “weird” need not be excluded.

“I love this place for a lot of reasons,” Angelo Lambiase, patron and founder of nonprofit organization Wheels That Heal, says. Lambiase has hosted numerous benefits in Wilmington through Wheels, an organization which raises money for cancer patients and the American Cancer Society through car shows and entertainment events. Among others, one of the venues Lambiase always feels he can turn to is the Gypsy.

“The culture it attracts is great,” he says, “but the people I’ve met here have been exceptional. This place has always shown immense support for our cause, and now I really want to give something back to this particular community.”

Teaming with Juggling Gypsy owner Sebastian Gomez, Lambiase and other local performers are collaborating on the Carnival of Dreams, a fund-raiser event for Cape Fear artists, or as active local painter Mezzanine Kowalski describes it: “Wilmington’s chance to be a part of the circus and to support what is innovative in the art world: the odd, the beautiful, the grand scale, and what’s on fire in our own backyards!”

With this fund-raiser, Gomez himself will participates in a fire performance on The Flaming Trampoline. He assures, while the name is somewhat self-explanatory, it is advisable to leave much open to imagination. “What we’re doing is kind of like a live Kickstarter,” Gomez continues. “There’s a community of artists that have great ideas for unique, interactive projects, and we want to see them come to life. The Carnival of Dreams will help these artists raise funds for their creative endeavors and also share with the public eye a culture that has influenced a lot of our work.”

State fairs and traveling circus shows will be the inspiration behind Carnival of Dreams—from nostalgia to brilliant, blinking lights, the pungent smell of funnel cake to the ecstatic screaming after winning a prize, the illuminated colors and dark pastel hues… Whether it’s a 4-year-old or a 40-year-old, there is wondrous appeal for all. Readily available will be a 30-foot inflatable slide and a moon bounce. There will be games, too, like Mr. Imagine’s Amazing Bizarrium Balloon Boom, a dart-throwing, balloon-popping game with a pyrotechnic touch, created by local fire cirque collective Bizarre Entertainment.

“I personally see it as Tim Burton’s Disneyland without the morbidity,” Lambiase laughs. “I think this event will not only help a lot of talented artists, but it’s going to be the best way to introduce the influential culture that has shaped them.The ultimate goal is to encourage creativity from our Wilmington community.”

Performers will abound: sideshow, magic, fire, musicians, DJs, jugglers, comics and all around “freaks.” Artist and performer Mezzanine Kowalski will be appearing as a stilt-walker and will be raffling off one of her live paintings to raise funds for all the participating artists.

“The Carnival of Dreams contains so many elements that I’m attracted to and that show up a lot in my artwork,” Kowalski says. “It appeals to my artistic sensibilities and I love that it’s carnival-based, involves interactive projects and brings the community together.”

Kowalski hopes the Carnival of Dreams will assist artists and also her steam-punk and R. Buckminster Fuller-inspired project: the Beehive Disco Ball, which will “bring an element of [her] paintings into three dimensions in a glowing, spinning interactive lighting to dance under.”

“Through my art, I wish to gather people together and ignite a sense of wonder of the natural world,” she says. “The Carnival of Dreams will promote participation from everyone, and I hope it will bring out people’s inner child.”

The Carnival of Dreams will begin at 8 p.m. this Friday and is open to all ages. Admission costs $7, which will go directly to support local artists in their upcoming interactive cirque-style projects. Tickets can be purchased the day of or at http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/350500.

When Lambiase and Gomez first started planning the initial concept for Carnival of Dreams, they wanted it to be a cancer benefit for the American Cancer Society, and to act as a memorial to Lambiase’s late sister, Anita, who lost her life during an arduous cancer battle. They have continued pursuing this avenue by doing a reprisal of the bohemian Carnival of Dreams on March 30th.

“For those who happen to miss the Carnival of Dreams this Friday, have no fear!” Lambiase states. “There will be another chance to experience the same atmosphere and fun at Anita’s tribute and cancer benefit [at the end of the month.] People will still be supporting the art scene here and at the same time, donating their time and funds to the American Cancer Society.”

DURHAM – Wendy Kowalski is best known for her brightly  colored paintings using sfumato, an Italian technique in which colors blend into  each other without boundaries. Next April, Kowalski plans to unveil her first  large metal sculptures and her first public art project in an event at Motorco  Music Hall.
Kowalski is planning to build six beehive disco balls, each  six feet tall, which will have hexagons made from aluminum from Vega Metals in  Durham, titled “Pollen Path Beehive Disco Balls.” These hexagons will be  fastened to a frame made of recycled metal, and a light will glow from the  inside of each sculpture. To build these sculptures, Kowalski is seeking to  raise $5,000 through the Kickstarter fundraising site. (As of this writing, she  was approaching the halfway point. The campaign expires at midnight  Wednesday.)
The sculptures draw on several influences, Kowalski said – her love of dance and movement, her love of music, her interest in the thought  and work of R. Buckminster Fuller, and her concern about the plight of honeybees  and the natural world. In her video for Kickstarter, Kowalski recalls how she  became interested in Fuller, who invented the geodesic dome, after participating  in Burning Man, an annual art-urban planning event in Nevada, in 2010. She has  used the hexagon in her paintings, and the hexagons that are central to the  sculpture take their inspiration from Fuller’s dome invention, she said. “There  was something [Fuller] was saying about the future, about living in these domes,  rather than separate houses,” Kowalski said.
A member of the  Greensboro-based band Holy Ghost Tent Revival introduced her to the plight of  honey bees, whose numbers have declined in recent years, and Kowalski realized  that she had painted the honeycomb shape, which also is hexagonal, in several of  her paintings. The symbol hints at the idea of connectedness, which Kowalski  said is central to this sculpture.
“There’s a reason we’re drawn to  artwork, some magical place we go. I would hope that the disco balls would  transport people to that place,” she said. She invites visitors to come to  Motorco and dance under the disco balls next year.
Many of her paintings  feature circus performers, and on her website beecombfreedom.com she has videos  of puppetry, stilt dancing, and other types of movement. Above all, music is  central to these sculptures and all her art. “I love music and can’t paint  without it,” she said in an email message. She also mentions dubstep, electronic  music, and trance, all of which will be elements in the Motorco event.
Kowalski plans to make the sculptures at her studio in Wilmington, where  she has been living for about seven years. She has numerous ties to the Durham  area, having participated in several ArtWalks and at the Shakori Hills festival.  She has produced a mock-up of the first sculpture at Vega Metals, where sculptor  Renee Leverty helped her, and she has worked at the MonkeyBottom Collaborative  metal sculpture studio.
Leverty said she helped Kowalski hammer the  aluminum into hexagon shapes “in order to create better reflection and  movement.” She also advised her about the best way of connecting metal to create  that sense of movement. Leverty stressed that her role is strictly advisory,  that she’s offering Kowalski help if she needs it.
“It’s going to be a  lot of work,” Kowalski said, and she wants “to take the time to learn how to  fabricate them correctly.”
She wants the disco ball project to be a  traveling exhibit, with Durham being the place for the unveiling. She envisions  the Motorco opening to be an all-day event, what Kowalski calls “a day of  illumination,” with seminars on beekeeping, along with music, dance and other  activities. Eventually, she said she would like the disco balls to be displayed  in Durham Central Park, or other places downtown.
Kowalski has created  some smaller metal sculptures in the past two years. “I really felt compelled to  make them,” she said of those projects. The beehive disco balls will be her  first large-scale sculpture and her first public art.
She wants viewers  of this work to experience “a sense of wonder, wonder about the natural world as  well as their internal world … that happy realm I’m always trying to find in my  paintings.”

“An artist, under pain of oblivion, must have confidence in himself, and listen only to his real master: Nature.” ~ Pierre-Auguste Renoir

By MO LINQUIST
Contributing Writer

The winter months found her in deep hibernation studying the works of Monet, Renoir, Degas and Manet. These masters taught her that it’s not about just copying the photos.
There is a poetry in selection of the paint – the flow of colors and light. Beings are light. The wonderment comes as the light in the painting appears from the figures. This is the Source of love.
She could also be seen running along the Cape Fear River where she found solace in nature waiting for Mother Gaia to wake up spring.
She gathered charcoal from the burnt forest, which she used for her primary sketches on upcycled cardboard. Nature empowered her, uplifting her spiritual connection.
During this bleak time of winter her goal was to remove herself of ego and prepare to live fully present allowing the natural beauty of spring to contrast by focusing on friends loving each other.
She planted her seeds by painting her friends looking joyous and happy. It was her way to get things rolling. The third part of her process was the physical activity of hooping and yoga, which helped her stay in the flow. “The exercise helped spin the paintings out,” she said.
The woman I am speaking of is Carolina Beach resident and artist extraordinaire, Wendy Kowalski, known also as Mezzanine. Kowalski moved here with her son, Blaze, a year ago as she chose to live a simpler life.
She now walks her son to school taking the opportunity to breath in nature as opposed to the two hours she used to spend daily in her vehicle driving. She may appear to have checked out from technology having no TV or computer in the home but she gets her news off NPR and checks her email at the library.
By limiting these distractions, Kowalski says, it has not cut her off from society, but rather the opposite has happened. She has been opened up more to meet and interact with neighbors.
She has been pleasantly surprised at the group of progressive thinking parents she has met in her son’s school.
Her winter’s work has blossomed in a show, “Notes for Joy,” opening reception 6:30-8:30 pm Thursday April 5th at Artful Living Group and continuing through the month of April.
During the reception DJ Gon will provide electronica – happy, ambient music similar to that which Kowalski listened to as she painted. Ostara, a group of local women will perform two short belly dances during the reception.
“We are spirits in the material world.” Come experience “Notes for Joy.” xo mo
