Kuniharu Shimizu is a kind of artist I admire deeply the one for whom creation is a way of life. He has supported himself as a graphic artist, an editor, and exhibition planner. For the joy of it, he has created countless haiga as well as writing haiku and haibun (haiku with prose or narrative), and also bilingual short stories. He is an advisor to The World Haiku Association and finds time to judge of the WHA Monthly Haiga Contest as well. Fresno Art Museum and the Armenian Museum, Fresno, CA. Vosdanik Manouk Adoian a.k.a.

Gallery-Going: Abstraction & Adventure–From elaborate construction to raunchy figuration, artists blur the lines” (PaceWildenstein exhibition preview). New York Sun, 19 March 2008: Spring in the City: S3. Colour: Mostly monochromatic. The light source is easily discerned. Highlights were painted last on top of darker colours. The artist used many tints and shades of green. Shape and Pattern: Tree trunks and greenery are repeated to form a pattern, relieved by an open space and briefly repeated at the bottom of the painting. The repetition creates harmony. Some people may see these artist as being “gimmicky” or seeking attention. Pretty cool stuff! I’ve always liked it when images of body painting come across my computer. It is amazing the illusions that can be created. Sounds like you’ve had some fun experiences with it. develop reading and writing skills alongside speaking and listening skills as they research, communicate, analyze, critically evaluate and review their own work and the work of significant artists , craftspeople , architects and designers and make visits to the museum and gallery sector.

Asperger’s syndrome is popularly described as a disorder on the autism spectrum manifested most often by difficulty sustaining typical social interactions, particularly with peers. The subject of this case study was a 15-year-old male with Asperger’s in a mainstreamed high school setting. In a previous study the subject was given an MP3 player and told that he could keep it if he completed some tasks. The subject asked 5 boys and 5 girls, of his choosing, to tell him what their favorite song was and why they liked it. Then he was given a gift card and instructed to find the various pieces of music on-line and download them to the MP3 player. He listened to the music and wrote a paragraph about each piece explaining why his peers said they liked those tunes and what things about the music or lyrics he thought caused them to like it. When asked about whether or not he was aware of this music before the project and how he liked the music the subject indicated that this was not the type of music he listened to but that he had enjoyed coming to know some of these songs and would continue to listen to some of them. He also stated that he felt that he was “friends” with some of the peers with whom he had interacted during the project.
This build-up of exhibitions has shed a light on an important aspect of the modernist embrace of spirituality, a phenomenon that has to be views in a wider context. In the early modern era, the boundary between science and faith was far more porous than it is today. Charles Darwin, who did so much to shake the foundations of 19th-century religion, was adamantly opposed to the supernatural. Yet Alfred Russel Wallace , who simultaneously and independently conceived of the theory of evolution and was originally listed as its co-discoverer, was a true believer. His embrace of spiritualism may account for the degree to which he has been erased from the history of science. Shabani, F., Nayeri, N.D., Karimi, R., Zarei, K., & Chehrazi, M. (2016). Effects of music therapy on pain responses induced by blood sampling in premature infants: A randomized cross-over trial. Iranian Journal of Nursing and Midwifery Research, 21(4), 391-396. We do not know specifically how music affects memory, but most of us experience that effect every time we hear a favorite song. Indeed, music is capable of arousing in us deep and signiﬁcant emotions. Memories of music can be so well preserved that the merest fragment of a melody stimulates recall of the song’s title or lyrics. Emotionally charged responses to familiar music are probably the result of connections from the auditory nerve to key limbic structures in the brain. The limbic area, which is associated with emotion, includes the olfactory cortex, amygdala, and hippocampus. The amygdala gets its input from our senses and directly affects our autonomic responses; it is also involved with our moods through interconnections with the frontal cortex and thalamus. The hippocampus plays a significant role in storage of factual information, including conscious (declarative) memory. Chen, X.J., Leith, H., Aarø, L.E., Manger, T., & Gold, C. (2016).

Come join us Thursday, January 12th, 2017 for the Platinum group art show at Gallery 3 in the Bishop Arts District. Lines and shapes are all well and good, but they beg to be filled in with color, so a piece of geometrical art by the quintessential geometrical artist, Piet Mondrian, plays with the notion that lines are actually outlines, and the color finds its way onto the painting in a very restrained manner. Indeed, restraint may be the keyword for geometrical painting, because the precision required necessitates a slower manner with more planning than abstract expressionism, which may be considered the absolute opposite of geometrical art. Measured compositions, akin to music in its regimentation, make for a piece of art that appeals to our cooler, more calculating brains than expressionism. What time it took to measure and paint these lines, we think, and how much planning.
Chelsea: With approximately 500 galleries, Chelsea is one of the most thriving art districts in New York. The Manhattan neighborhood offers a wide variety of fine art, showcasing up-and-coming artists right alongside the well-known. Disruptive behaviors such as agitation and aggression are a significant concern among elderly persons with dementia. Physical and pharmacologic restraints, commonly used to manage disruptive behaviors, are often not well tolerated by the elderly. Therefore, there is a need to explore alternative methods of managing these behaviors. Musical cognitive ability may be preserved in elderly individuals with dementia, and music intervention is a relatively simple, noninvasive, and inexpensive intervention for disruptive behaviors. This article will review literature examining the impact of music intervention on disruptive behaviors in long-term care residents with dementia.

Visual Arts Education is the area of learning that is based upon only the kind of art that one can see, visual arts —drawing, painting, sculpture, and design in jewelry, pottery, weaving, fabrics, etc. and design applied to more practical fields such as commercial graphics and home furnishings. Contemporary topics include photography, video, film, design, and computer art. Art education may focus on students creating art, on learning to criticize or appreciate art, or some combination of the two. Liesbrock, Heinz.

Lois Dodd (b. Montclair, New Jersey, 1927) has spent more than seventy years attentively observing the natural and manmade architectures of her surroundings and recording them in paint. Her works preserve the beauty camouflaged in ordinary and occasionally enigmatic details such as windows, wood siding, greenery and washing lines. Dodd’s quintessentially American pictures recount a life spent painting outdoors, much of it in the Delaware Water Gap and the bucolic settings around her summer home in Midcoast Maine, in addition to time in her Manhattan studio. At 92, she continues to produce new work. Goodman, K. (1989). Music therapy assessment of emotionally disturbed children. The Arts in Psychotherapy, 16, 179-192. Ratcliff, Carter.

Twentieth-century compositional practices are studied from a variety of musical, cultural, social, political, and creative perspectives. The availability and impact of technology on compositional aesthetics is explored along with discussions about emerging trends in new media, sound art,, installations, and mobile technology. Fortunately the building of Hagia Sophia was early in his reign, before the real horrors began. The problems were not financial they were structural. Being so close to the job site Justinian carefully monitored the construction progress himself and make decisions. His builders, the famous team of Anthemios and Isidorus, encountered many challenges due to the scale of the project and the limits of the building materials used, particularly the drying of the mortar. On could say that the primary building material of Hagia Sophia was not brick, but mortar. The piers and arches moved and stretched apart in odd and uneven directions as it dried. The builders made changes and modifications to the design as it went up, with a great deal of improvisation, arches and buttresses were added, the columns in the upper arcade were increased from 5 to 7, which spoiled the symmetry of the colonnades forever. The superb dome they built – one that seemed to float above the nave – only lasted for 20 years when it came crashing down – destroying $9 million of silver-covered stuff in the sanctuary. The replacement of 563 was taller and less elegant, but was more secure structurally. It took almost as long to rebuild the dome as it took to build the church originally. As Morris continued to allow Congo to paint, the chimpanzee’s obsession for painting accelerated. Congo´s ability to experiment with abstract patterns and alter them in creative ways became clear evidence that the mind of a non-human had the same innate urge and understanding to make articulate visual works of art.

However, contact among civilizations caused rapid spread and adaptation of most instruments in places far from their origin. By the Middle Ages, instruments from Mesopotamia were in maritime Southeast Asia, and Europeans played instruments from North Africa. Development in the Americas occurred at a slower pace, but cultures of North, Central, and South America shared musical instruments. By 1400, musical instrument development slowed in many areas and was dominated by the Occident. During her career Nikki has worked as an interior stylist and designer, also spending time involved with community arts.Today she produces paintings full of colour which evolve by layering a mix of acrylics, oil pastels and collage. At first glance, the bold patterns in John Walker’s recent paintings and drawings appear to mark a change in direction from the large gritty paintings of tidal pools of Maine that were his last body of work. On further viewing, it becomes apparent that his familiar landscapes of mud, water, fire and tides have become compressed into signs or ideograms. These perhaps reflect time spent in Australia during the1980s when he made a study of boriginal bark and cave paintings as well as the abstract lineage of modernism. Ruud, E. (2012).
