30 Years at Crane Kalman Gallery

Category:

Country:

City:

This ambitious yet intimate retrospective will showcase 34 paintings created in oil and acrylic, as well as a selection of small works on paper and oil on board, and give a fascinating insight into the journey of a landscape painter and his relationship with the gallery over three decades.

This 30-year collaboration between artist and gallerist started when Nicholas Jones met Andras Kalman, the British-Hungarian art dealer who founded Crane Kalman and championed the work of L.S. Lowry, Ben Nicholson, Graham Sutherland and Mary Newcomb.

Initially more abstract, the artist’s work has since moved towards figuration and back again, and evokes the transient beauty of the natural world, and the sublime grandeur of the Arctic.

The 360 XOCHI QUETZAL Artist and Writer's Residency Program is located on Lake Chapala, the largest lake in Mexico, where the perfect year-round climate and stunning lake and mountain views have long established the region as an international artist mecca. Residents will be inspired by the natural beauty, history and culture of this special part of central Mexico. Chapala is located 25 minutes from Guadalajara International Airport (GDL) and 45 minutes from Guadalajara, one of the largest cities in Mexico boasting abundant cultural resources: museums, galleries, theatre and artist supplies. Xochi Quetzal is the Aztec goddess of creativity and fertility and protector of artisans. She is sure to inspire you during your stay!

 

MISSION: Our aim is to support artists, writers and musicians who would benefit from having uninterrupted time to devote to their creativity. By providing affordable live/work spaces in a beautiful and culturally rich area, we hope that our residents can make artistic progress without the stress and distractions of daily life.

There is no formal application, just check our website for descriptions, pictures, pricing and availability of the spaces that are located at the historic Villa QQ Hotel.This is a perfect opportunity to finish a manuscript, prepare for a show, collect your thoughts, or plan your next body of work. It will be helpful to read some of the interviews with creatives who have come to Chapala for a personal residency 

LIVE WORK SPACES: Each space at the Villa QQ Hotel has a private entrance, sitting area, bedroom and full bathroom. Your residency also includes free wi-fi, all utilities, weekly maid service, (weekly laundry pickup is available for an additional charge) and a 22-page Residency Handbook. All rooms have patios where you can also work and relax. See pictures and descriptions on our website.

It is easy and safe to take an airport taxi which costs $440 pesos to Chapala. Download driving directions from our Facebook Page: 360 Xochi Quetzal (join us too!). You will also need to pay for your local transportation (taxis usually $5 USD), entertainment, gifts and dining.

WHAT IS CHAPALA LIKE? In a word, charming. This is a small town with a population of 25,000. You will hear horses trotting along the cobblestone boulevard in the morning on their way to the stables. Cowboys ride by using their cell phones. Birdsong accompanies you throughout the day. In the winter, thousands of white pelicans entertain us on the lake. Trees blaze with psychedelic color year round. The mountains turn green during our 5 month rainy season (June - Oct). Vendors pass by during the day hawking fresh strawberries, bottled water, and ice cream.Read more about Chapala on our website

 

FUN: All live/work spaces are walking distance to a park with a running track, pool, tennis courts and walking trails. You are also minutes from the malecon, a park-like promenade that runs along the lake for a mile. The lake is surrounded by hundreds of mountains and you will enjoy spectacular sunsets almost every night. The weather is sunny 300 days a year with average daytime temperatures in the 70s. Other nearby activities include hiking, dancing, bird-watching and thermal springs.

 

COMMUNITY: Chapala and nearby Ajijic have dozens of cafes, galleries, cultural centers, art openings, and hundreds of artists to connect or study with. Everything you need is within walking distance and bus service is frequent and inexpensive. This is a safe place to live and work and the Villa QQ Hotel grounds are locked and secure.

 

MISC:  Although speaking a little Spanish will make your time here more culturally integrated, you do not need to speak the language to get what you need. You are just a 5 minute walk from many stores, restaurants and buses.

 

HOUSE RULES: Pets are not permitted at the Villa QQ Hotel (there are other options at the many bed and breakfast hotels nearby). Smoking, drugs and firearms are expressly prohibited.
