May Artist Spotlight-Justin Bernhardt

Justin’s paintings reflect on the nature of light, water, substance and the possibilities of emenate ahuman perception. Water is receptive, healing, life giving; and we are water. He uses a high gloss surface to give the sense of looking through, giving added depth, and creating a filter that simulates the properties of water. The reflective potential of water can echo the human psyche, which mirrors and resonates with the universe around and within. The inherent movement and refraction of light on water can be a microcosm for the ever changing, vibrant flow of life.

Our perception is what connects us with the outside world; and that perception can move beyond the five senses into the realms of the mind and emotion. Through visual discoveries he seeks to turn inward and bring awareness to the essential rhythms that flow through all entities. As the earth, the cosmos, and ourselves shimmer in constant flux, he attempts to find calmness and comfort in that ever changing predicament, perhaps touching on an eternal state that creates and maintains harmony and balance.

Justin believes there is a state where awareness merges with the object, and only the experience remains. He blurs the boundaries between self and setting. His paintings strive toward unifying the self by making the viewer more aware of the subtle and profound elemental systems that operate around and through each of us. He seeks to portray not only the “object” or “thing”, but more essentially, he explores the energies that move and connect all things together.

April Artist Spotlight-Sculptor, Alice Kiderman

Malton Art Gallery is very fortunate to represent award winning sculptor, Alice Kiderman.7.Dreaming (F)JPG Alice was born in Russia and is trained as a linguist and educator. She gradually changed her career path and followed her passion for stone carving and sculpting. She explores themes of feminine and masculine, relationships and human emotion. Her chisel and hammer have been giving “birth” to serene elegance ever since.

In 2011, Alice was selected to participate in Florence Biennale, in Florence, Italy.  A high honor offered to a very select few in the world! She has also been featured in many art magazines such as “When Stone Speaks”, the “Sun Courier” and “Art in America.’

Her work has been acquired by numerous public & private collections such as “The Putnam Sculpture Collection” & “Vacuum Systems International.”

Kiderman’s work has a Henry Moore feeling and form but her work is softer, more luminous and clearly soulful. Her collective works are imbued with quiet magic, serenity and can reasonably be seen as a metaphor for the history of us!   Brenda

DR. SEUSS’S SECRETS OF THE DEEP ART EXHIBITION

Exhibition features newly released artworks from award-winning book and runs May 9-May 30 at Malton Art Gallery. The Art of Dr. Seuss

In celebration of the Independent Book Publisher’s award-winning book, Dr. Seuss’s Secrets of the Deep: The Lost, Forgotten, and Hidden Works of Theodor Seuss Geisel, we proudly announce an exhibition commemorating this prized volume. The Secrets of the Deep Art Exhibition presents a series of Estate authorized works adapted from Ted Geisel’s original drawings, paintings, and sculpture. This historic collection has opened the world’s eyes to the extraordinary artistic talent of Dr. Seuss and will be available for viewing and purchase through the run of the exhibition.

This exhibition offers an insider’s view of Dr. Seuss’s little known private works; the windows to the world of an unassuming genius. Artistically, they embody a magical combination of the person and persona of Ted Geisel and Dr. Seuss.

MALTON ART GALLERY features original paintings, sculpture, and limited edition fine art prints in diverse styles. The award winning gallery has been in business since 1974 representing over 100 artists from around the world.

  • Location: 3804 Edwards Road    Cincinnati  Ohio  45209
  • Hours: The gallery is open Tuesday to Saturday, 11 to 5pm and by appointment.
  • Admission: Free

About the Exhibition:

For over 70 years, Theodor Seuss Geisel’s illustrations brought a visual realization to his fantastic imaginary worlds. However, his artistic talent went far beyond the printed page. Ted Geisel’s “Secret Art,” the paintings and sculptures created at night for his own personal enjoyment, were rarely if ever exhibited during his lifetime. Seuss always dreamed of sharing these works with his fans and had entrusted his wife, Audrey, to carry out his wishes once he was gone. Audrey, too, believed the work deserved further recognition and that Ted himself would one day be evaluated not only as an author, but also as an artist in his own right. In 1997 this dream was realized when The Art of Dr. Seuss project was launched. For the first time, authorized estate editions were re-created from Geisel’s original drawings, paintings, and sculpture for private collection and museum exhibition. Audrey Geisel (Mrs. Dr. Seuss) writes in her introduction to the Secrets of the Deep book, “It is with great pleasure that I share Ted, his art, his imagination, and his boundless creativity. I’m gratified to carry out Ted’s wishes and have these works revealed to the world.”

Healing Art for Children’s Hospital

Childrens Hospital InstallPelletierTraven_04One of our objectives at the Malton Art Gallery is to bring intriguing and joyful art to the public. I have helped many entities, parks, corporations, and health organizations by conceptualizing, producing and installing art for public enjoyment. We all know that art is the creative spirit of humanity and that art resonates with people in a very powerful and healing way.

One of my favorite and most meaningful projects is the series of sculptures we developed for Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center.  The project involved the placement of grand scaled sculptural art in the 4th floor roof garden.  The roof garden was situated between two wings of the building, the garden surrounded on 3 sides by the hospital complex.  There were many floors above the roof garden with windows from patient rooms looking down at the garden.  Via a collaborative effort between the Malton Art Gallery, the hospital committee and the branding firm, three sculptural concepts were conceptualized and produced to awesome effect.  A wonderful and colorful mobile that was suspended on wire cables over the garden.  This piece called “Celestial” moves gently in the wind; twirling and spinning…almost like giant confetti falling from the sky!  The second piece was called “Celestial Waves”.  This sculpture was a light panel with a series of undulating waves on its surface.  At night, the sculpture twinkles and looks like a starlit night.  The third piece was the “Celestial Tower”, a 13 foot metal tube with fanciful stars cut into the metal allowing the light to shine through like shooting stars.

Of course the garden turned out beautifully, but the best part of it all was to design a concept that delights and entertains the children at the hospital.  No matter their condition and regardless of their ability to actually visit the rooftop garden, they can enjoy the garden from their window both day and night from their rooms…they can look out, imagine and have their own Artful Moment!  Sylvia
