A message from the mayor of Belleview,
Florida-Tammy Moore:
participate and enjoy art. This grant was supplemented by in-kind services by City staff as well as donations for prizes from our individual Commissioners and other local citizens. The children’s artwork was displayed on the walls of the Commission Chamber for all to see and enjoy. The children were recognized in a Commission meeting and also at a special reception held in the Commission Chambers. This has been a great project, and one that the City Commission has been proud to participate in.
The City Commission received a $500.00 grant from the Marion County Art Council that was to be used to encourage children of the area to

Our Featured Artist Member of the Month

Kaziko specializes among other things in landscapes, cityscapes, and still-lifes. She works mainly in oil, and occasionally in water as medium. Kazuko has won many awards. Her cityscapes of Waukesha, Wisconsin are a permanent collection at the Waukesha Court House and City Hall. For these works she was awarded the key of the city. Currently two of her works, 'Chamber of Commerce' and 'Brickcity, Center of Art' are on display at the Planning Management building in Ocala. Her style of painting is mostly in impressionism, and sometimes in realism. You can contact Kazuko at:

Featured Master Artist of the Month:

Gustav Klimt (1862-1918) was one of the most innovative and controversial artists of the early twentieth century. The son of an engraver, he studied at the State School of Applied Arts in Vienna. In the 1880s and 1890s he produced murals for public buildings -- including Vienna's Burgtheater and new Kunsthistorisches Museum (Art History Museum) -- in the prevailing classical-realist style. Klimt's style grew increasingly experimental, however, and his murals for Vienna University, commissioned by the State in 1894, were roundly attacked by critics for their fantastical imagery and their bold, decorative style. Partly in response to this reaction, in 1897 Klimt helped form the Secession, a group of artists dedicated to challenging the conservative Academy of Fine Arts. Influenced by European avant-garde movements represented in the annual Secession exhibitions, Klimt's mature style combined richly decorative surface patterning with complex symbolism and allegory, often with overtly erotic content. After 1900 he concentrated on portraits and landscapes, although he also produced two of his greatest murals during this period -- The Beethoven Frieze, exhibited at the Secession in 1902, and decorations for the Palais Stoclet in Brussels (1904-1911). Klimt spent most of his summers on the Attersee, near Salzburg, where he drew inspiration for many of his landscapes, and where he painted some of his best-known works, including The Kiss of 1907-8.

Famous Artist Quotes:

I dream of painting and then I paint my dream. Vincent van Gogh

Everyone wants to understand art. Why don’t we try to understand the song of a bird? Why do we love the night, the flowers, everything around us, without trying to understand them? But in the case of a painting, people think they have to understand.Pablo Picasso Quotes

"Colour and I are one. I am a painter." - Paul Klee, 1914.

"The attitude that nature is chaotic and that the artist puts order into it is a very absurd point of view, I think. All that we can hope for is to put some order into ourselves." - Willem de Kooning, 1968

Exploring New Art Techniques

Naked Raku or Slip Resist Rakuis a relatively new technique which has risen out of the traditional Eastern and Western Raku Movements. As with traditional Raku, Naked Raku works are fired quickly in a rush of excitement, smoke, and frantic activity.Naked Raku works are constructed using traditional methods of hand building, wheel throwing or a combination of these techniques. The types of clay used will vary among artists; however, all clays used must be able to withstand the tremendous stresses of rapidly changing temperatures during the final firing. Once constructed, works are allowed to dry completely. They are then burnished or polished using an agate or other hard, smooth object. This process is very tedious and time consuming, often taking several hours to complete one piece. The finished works are not covered with glazes or surface preparations of any kind. The fine surface and beautiful shine is merely polished clay. The quality of the surface is directly proportional to the time the artist spends in burnishing. Upon completion of the burnishing stage the works are bisque fired to help strengthen them for the final firing process.Bisqued works are covered with a thin coating of liquid clay called slip. Once this layer is dry a thin layer of sacrificial glaze is then applied to the slip. These two layers dry and shrink at different rates and begin to produce a crackled surface. The work is then fired in a propane fueled Raku kiln to temperatures approaching 1800˚ F. The glowing hot works are quickly removed from the kiln and placed into metal cans containing newspaper and sawdust. The cans are then sealed allowing heavy black smoke to penetrate the works and seep through the cracks in the slip/glaze layer. When the works are cool the sacrificial slip and glaze layers are gently peeled away leaving the “Naked” clay surface with a randomly beautiful smoked design.Naked Raku works are one of a kind pieces of fine art. They are not intended for food or as containers for liquids. As with all works of fine art, Naked Raku pieces should be handled with care and protected from direct sunlight.

Florida landscape painter Jackie Schindehette and Equine artist Sharon Crute have partnered to help in the revitalization of historic downtown Ocala. Voilart! Art Gallery and Working Studio opens September 1, at 108 East Ft. King Street, just one block south of the Central Square. The public is invited to A Ribbon Cutting Opening Reception scheduled for Friday, September 4 from 5PM-8PM.
The gallery offers the finest in artistic excellence from these two accomplished artists. Sharon Crute’s dynamic paintings are a colorful and bold interpretation of the horse racing industry. Jackie Schindehette’s oil paintings give the viewer a glimpse of old Florida with sweeping vistas and moss draped oaks.
Voilart! Art Gallery is not only a gallery where people can see art at its best but is also a working studio offering the unique opportunity for the public to watch as these two artists actually create paintings from conception to the last brush stroke. Schindehette points out that "Sharon and I will be painting in the studio/gallery and invite people to stop by, sit a while, learn a little more about art and share our passion."
"The gallery will showcase our own paintings, but we are also on a mission to actively support all cultural events within the community, educate the public about the arts and provide a powerful presence in the downtown art scene", says co-owner Sharon Crute.
Crute and Schindehette have already begun to work for the arts community. The gallery will be headquarters for all painters participating in the World Wide Plein Air Event to be held September 12 in downtown Ocala from 7 AM - 5 PM. Maps of downtown charting the location of each artist will be handed out so the public can find and watch each artist working.
Original paintings by Crute and Schindehette will be available at Voilart! Art Gallery as well as giclee reproductions and gift items created from works by these two nationally recognized artists.
