Beyond this life of apprentice research scientist, Kelvin enjoyed an adventurous youth, hitched his way around the Caribbean archipelago, found time to be a National athlete. Eventually visiting New York, he decided to stay and mingle. While about dis and dat, he meandered into the craft of fiction, and eventually abandoned his supervisory job at Harlem Hospital to pursue the Writer's life.

In 1989, he was awarded a New York Foundation for the Arts Fellowship in fiction. In 1996, was granted a National Endowment for the Arts fellowship in Literature. From 1992, through 1996, and managed through the Board of Education, each year he donated approximately $3000 to New York City high-schoolers for his eponymous annual writing awards.

Marjorie Kaye

Marjorie Kaye

Marjorie Kaye is an artist residing in Salem, Massachusetts who graduated from Syracuse University in 1979 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Painting cum laude. She is best known for her colorful, detailed mandala drawings, and also her Surrealistic representations and has exhibited these in many galleries and shows nationally. She is also the owner and operator of the on-line Caladan Gallery, which exhibits artists from around the world. Her mandala drawings resonate from the center and draw the energy outwards. The forms are influenced by nature, geometry, music, and are also influenced by the artwork of many ancient cultures. She is devoted to the drawings, and integrates her interest in spirituality and meditation into them, which become a vehicle for spiritual expression. She feels that the opportunity for spiritual manifestation through art is limitless. “Art is life celebrated in matter.” Her Surrealistic representations reflect the irony present in the act of living! They are often humorous depictions of both the common and serendipitous.

“I celebrate the boundless range of elemental combinations present in the universe. From basic substances of matter emerge presences of infinite variety that take form as planets, comets, stars, trees, human-kind, and other celestial travelers. This is a manifestation of the creativity of spirit. This is present and reflected on all levels of being. It is with this observation that my drawings are made.”

Serena Perrone

Serena Perrone is a painter/printmaker from St. Louis who now lives in
Providence, Rhode Island where she is finishing her Masters' degree at Rhode Island School of Design. She grew up between St. Louis and a small village in Sicily where her father's family lives. Elements of both American and Italian cultures appear frequently in her work. She has also researched natural history, the culture of freaks and sideshows, and the history of medicine and physical abnormalities for imagery that she uses both literally and symbolically to discuss the external/physical and the internal/emotional metamorphosis that is a constant within the life of each individual.

Lynn Rupe

Lynn Rupe

Lynn Rupe was raised in Michigan but adopted Vermont as her home in 1975. She has a love for both science and art and has masters degrees in both science (Natural Resource Planning) and in art (MFA).

Here’s what she say about her paintings:

“I love paintings that possess a compelling charisma and that make it hard for me to walk away,” says Rupe, whose striking, acrylic-on-panel artworks do just that. When asked about her work’s quirky complexity, she says: “I want to give the viewer a toehold in chaos, without losing the chaos.”

Here’s what the reviewers say:

“The acrylic-on-panel works are vivid jumbles and juxtapositions of geometric and organic shapes that suggest a universe of barely controlled chaos. Indeed, they nearly leave you breathless—…” — Pamela Polston, Editor, Seven Days, Burlington, VT May, 200

One of these artists is Lynn Rupe, whose paintings, etchings, and monoprints are both serenely intimate and boldly expressive. Lynn has a knack for conjuring up images—from the real world and from the bottom drawers of our collective psyche—which we can’t always put our fingers on but which seem hauntingly familiar. Carefully layered patinas and strikingly original textures enhance the elegance and hypnotic “moodiness” of her work. — David Diefendorf

Although it may be impossible to say whether any 21st-century artist can “boldly go where no one has gone before,” it is clear that Rupe’s paintings have taken a very productive turn. When Pollock’s work began to completely fill the picture plane with gestural forms, he became enamored with drip painting — a technique he learned from David Siqueros — and Rupe’s epiphany will certainly lead her into a different direction eventually. She is not the sort of painter who is content to rest on accolades and settle into production work. Meanwhile, it’s got to be fun to paint like this, and we all get to enjoy the ride. — Mark Awodey© Seven Days Newspaper, 2003

Rupe’s own life has been anything but a straight line. From Dearborn, Michigan, to a Peace Corps stint in the Philippines, to Burlington, Vermont. From a Bachelor of Science at the University of Michigan, to an M.S. at UVM in resource planning, to an MFA at the Vermont Studio Center. From sheep farmer to town planner to high school science and art teacher. Rupe’s varied experiences may or may not be reflected in her unsettled but increasingly masterful paintings, but you won’t hear that kind of analysis from her. Still, her assessment sounds a lot like… life. “These really do start from nothing,” she insists. “You just make a mark, and then another mark, and you hope eventually the marks mean something.” Polston/7 days.com

Mattthew Skenadore

Mattthew Skenadore

THE DlViNE BAT SWAN WiTH SQUARE FEET AND THE PARADOX OF AN INCOMPREHENSIBLE MEANING

"From the beginning man has created art not perhaps to please others, but to express the feelings and emotions of soul and spirit whose suzerainty is the inner world.

Within ourselves we are all so very vast that without the use of symbols to condense the meanings of the multitudinous emotions and feelings of this inner world the explorer could very quickly become lost.

By positing a dichotomy, direction and destination become realizable and by familiarity the inner landscape becomes a laboratory for the study and synthesis of experience into meaning."

The above quote is from Matthew Skenandore whose work will be on display in the sanctuary beginning March 1. He will give a brief talk on the painting above the altar after church March 13th and a longer discussion on his other works at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, March 22nd in the sanctuary. If you have any questions about his art you can call him at 827-8287. And if you don't have any questions about this quote you are a lot smarter than the secretary!

Mattthew (the third T is silent and the Q is invisible) Skenandore has unusual brain chemistry and or pretensions of mysticism. Prone to fits of clarity, Mattthew paints some.

Silvia Verweij

Silvia Verweij

Mysterious, dark, romantic or melancholy, impulsive and explosive,
smoulderingly sexy or creepyly innocent. This describes both myself and my artwork. Just dipping my toes in the waters of 'struggling artisism', I'm currently seeking how I fit into that world. I like doing assignments because they push me into a learning streak every time, and they make me discover new artistic abilities and creative images I didn't know were there. After having wasted my time spending two years at Art School, I am now self-teaching and learning through trial and error, developing my own style. I am greatly inspired by Tim Burton's gothic tragicness mixed with his black humor. I dream through life, always wondering and always learning... Times are hard, for dreamers.

Paul Cordes Wilm

Paul Cordes Wilm

Paul Cordes Wilm lives in Birmingham, AL. He likes to paint on found pieces of wood. Sometimes the wood happens to also be furniture. He paints with housepaint and xerox ink.

Paul Cordes Wilm is colorblind... which could explain why the colors he chooses are so bold. His paintings seem to bridge the gap between Folk Art and Pop Art since many of the images found in his paintings come from products and advertisements in old magazines.

Paul Cordes Wilm also makes films, music videos and designs websites. He is the singer in a "garage punk" band called Nowhere Squares. www.forkitude.com
