Keith Doles is a Jacksonville native who graduated from the University of North Florida
with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Graphic Design in 2001. In 2005, he earned a
Master of Arts degree in Business from Webster University where he learned how to
finance painting commissions and graphic design projects. It didn't help him land a job in
the corporate world, but it was useful when Doles began painting portraits for
professional athletes, friends and family members. His influences include Cubism and
Abstract Expressionism. And, his graphic design and painting style is a mix of fractured
space with expressive color.
In 2006, Doles began producing commercial art for web designers and small businesses
from Florida to Wisconsin. Projects included prototype drawings, logos and illustrations
for children's books and magazines. In recent years, he has taught a series of fine art
workshops and courses at different venues including Michael’s Art Stores, the
Jacksonville Arboretum and Gardens and the University of North Florida. Doles is a
resident artist at CoRK Arts District in Jacksonville’s Riverside neighborhood.
Doles’ work has been featured in regional galleries including the Ritz Theatre &
Museum, MOCA Jacksonville Lab Gallery, Cummer Museum of Art & Gardens, Haskell
Gallery at Jacksonville International Airport and the Morean Arts Center in St.
Petersburg, FL. He continues to design for clients across the country and displays his
artwork in galleries in Northeast Florida. His work can be found in private collections
and public institutions.

Gallery 1037 - March 1, 2017 - March 31, 2017

Artist Statement: Eve Albrecht

My artistic endeavor is to capture a moment in time, depicting the beauty, light and emotion in my paintings for others to contemplate and enjoy. It is my greatest pleasure to be told that I have really “captured” the essence of the person posing or the mood and emotion in a narrative scene. I primarily paint in oil having studied master artists of the past and present in my pursuit of learning the art of portraiture and landscape painting. My personal goal to stay present enjoy the “being in the now” and I attempt to reflect this in my paintings. I infuse my paintings with emotion and modern context so my art will engage the viewer into pausing if only for a moment and just ponder.

I have always been enamored with far away destinations through reading and traveling. This led me to pursue a business career which gave me the opportunity to live and work in England and Germany. I became inspired by the fine art that surrounded me and the encouragement to develop my creativity and painting skills. This experience has developed my ability to explore new ideas and concepts and continues to influence my art today.

Artist Bio:

Eve has a Bachelor of Science Degree in Marketing from San Diego State University and an MBA in International Business from Henley, The Management College, U.K.. Eve has attended UNF focusing on fine art portraiture and the figure studying with classically trained artists Kyle Keith and Paul Ladnier. In 2015, Eve became a certified yoga instructor and teaches yoga and meditation locally. Eve has a studio at home where she works on portrait commissions and landscapes when she is not painting “plein air” or outdoors. Her larger format paintings and abstracts are created in her CoRK Arts District studio in the Riverside area of Jacksonville where she is inspired by the talented resident artists.

 

 

Artist Statement: Richard Joseph

Anatomical imagery is the common theme in my paintings, drawings and sculpture.  My background in science and medicine is a natural connection to understanding the figure and the art of classical realism.  I am inspired by the knowledge and skill of the great masters, the classical figures of Greek and Roman sculpture and figurative artists such as Degas and Maillol.

Various processes including welding and forging steel, modeling clay and wax and casting plaster, aluminum, iron and bronze give me greater latitude.  I combine my fascination with anatomy, art history and the beauty of classical art forms in my work.

Artist’s Bio:

Richard Joseph, was born in Jacksonville, Florida in 1948 where he also attended public schools. He attended Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia, earning both a B.S. in Biology and a D.M.D.  While at Emory, he was dually enrolled at the Atlanta School of Art and studied sculpture under professor James Clover and painting under the late Tullio Petrucci.

Joseph completed post-doctoral residency in oral and maxillofacial surgery also at Emory School of Medicine and has practiced in the specialty since 1977.  He maintains an active practice with hospital privileges, and he lectures both nationally and internationally.

He received a B.F.A. in painting, drawing and sculpture in 2015 at the University of North Florida.  He is a figurative artist who combines a fascination with anatomy, art history and the beauty of classical art forms in his work.

 

Susan Daly Voss  

Susan Daly Voss is a contemporary realist oil painter, who enjoys exploring the effects of light, whether it’s illuminating a still life, landscape or figure.

Originally from Jacksonville, Florida, her interest in art was nurtured at a very young age, beginning with summer camps at the Jacksonville Children’s Museum (now MOSH). Her focus eventually led to a BFA in painting and printmaking Summa Cum Laude, from the University of North Florida in 1986, where she earned the award of Outstanding Graduate of the Dept. of Fine Arts.

Daly’s education continued with her move to NY, where she studied at the renowned Art Student’s League and The Andrew Lattimore Atelier. She also studied regularly with Garin Baker at his Carriage House Studios, as well as American master Max Ginsburg. Time spent in the museums and galleries there was an important education as well.

Her years in NY were highlighted by her invitation to join the esteemed Salmagundi Club of NYC, founded in 1871 as a center for artists and collectors.

Back in her hometown of Jacksonville now, and with a studio in the CoRK Arts District, she looks forward to exploring the light and form of the Southeast’s coastal areas, as well as continuing her interest in still life and the figure.

Daly shares her life with her husband John Voss, and son Devin Daly as well as her studio buddy, standard poodle Jax, who is her biggest fan. She is also a songwriter, and can often be found playing her guitar and singing around town.

 

Kyriaki Karalis

Artist Statement: 

Kyriaki’s pottery is about line, form, and function. She creates utilitarian pottery with soft, elegant patterns that stem from math, language, and nature. Most pieces are intended to be used daily. She believes that using handmade objects can bring a newness, a specialness, to every day rituals such as drinking your morning coffee; it's this notion that keeps her rooted in creating functional pottery.

Bio:

Kyriaki first found clay in high school where she skipped other classes (but never music or history class!) to spend more time practicing wheel throwing. She received her BFA in Photography from the University of North Florida in 2004, but continues to study clay indefinitely. In addition to making pottery, Kyriaki teaches yoga, takes photographs, wrenches on and rides bicycles, and spends as much time outdoors as possible.

"ART FROM THE INSIDE OUT" ON DISPLAY JULY and AUGUST 2016

Hal and Ted have been best friends for over 40 years, meeting and working together at a graphic design studio in 1974. Their spiritual and artistic journeys over the years are woven into their art, in both theme and vision. Although their styles differ, both express their hearts and emotions in every painting and drawing. From Hal’s introspective revelations to Ted’s capturing nature’s beauty, both strive to create “Art from the Inside Out."

TED HEAD BIO:

My love of drawing began when I could hold a crayon.  A yellow-green one I remember distinctly.  Not only did it have a pleasing color, it tasted pretty good too.  Even as a child, my enjoyment of nature’s beauty was never ending.  The intricacy and playfulness of colors, patterns, light and shadows has always fascinated me.  
I paint with watercolors or oils, using several glazes to achieve rich dark and vibrant contrasts. My style is detailed and realistic, but I endeavor to “see” beyond the obvious to create a painting that surpasses the confines of a photograph.  Shadows infused with color, reflections taking on surrounding hues...when successful, the ordinary becomes extraordinary.
I also enjoy painting painting pet portraits as a way to forever cherish their love and companionship.

 

 

HAL RADUGGE BIO:

I'm self-taught and consider myself an outsider artist. My art is about restlessness and regeneration, addiction and salvation, and the expression of the spiritual journey on a personal level.
I also love drawing pencil portraits.
I have worked in many mediums but have a special love of pen & ink and pencil drawings.
