30 Years at Crane Kalman Gallery

Share

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.

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.

Eligibility:

Deco Publique invites Expressions of Interest for The Wakes Week inspired Mural Commission. 

Deco Publique is an art and culture company based by the sea in Morecambe and working in and around the North.  We make public art that animates coastal spaces, rural landscapes and urban centres. Our portfolio includes the National Festival of Making and Vintage by the Sea Festival; the commissioning programme - Art in Manufacturing; the co-design programme - The FOLD; and the co-production of landscape artworks, Headlands to Headspace.

Deco Publique will commission an artist to produce a mural exploring the heritage of The Wakes Week - a holiday period with a strong tradition of mill towns visiting Morecambe and other Lancashire towns, attracted by the healing powers of the sea. 

We are seeking proposals which:

  • Explore the heritage themes whilst being visually contemporary in line with our aspiration to create vibrant public space.
  • Demonstrate the artist/collectives’ experience in delivering large scale commissions and producing high quality outcomes with cultural and artistic credibility

The artist will use the thematic reference of The Wakes Week to inform the mural, which will highlight Morecambe as a contemporary destination and staycation location for Summer 2021 and beyond. This is particularly prevalent in light of current and future travel restrictions - attracting visitors and promoting the resort's natural beauty and seaside attractions.

As well as a mural, responses to the brief may include:

  • community engaged work
  • digital work that can be shared online
  • graphic posters and printed assets reference points can be seen in the tradition of 19th century posters

Budget: £4500 fixed fee (See inclusions and exclusions on the full brief)
