WAGE offers artists a chance for 'Reflection' in annual exhibition

By Tami Mosser Staff Writer WOOSTER — There are only so many walls, Pat Anderson believes, and so much art. Why hang it when you can wear it? An art teacher at Triway High School, Anderson's schedule is packed. "The school, the teaching," she said, "takes up most of my time." But she's also an artist, so any spare time she can call hers is most likely project time as well. Because she teaches art, Anderson is versed in all of the major media, but she says there are two that form the cornerstone of her creative endeavors: painting on silk and batique — a way of dyeing fabric using waxes. It is the painting on silk — in this case, a scarf — that Anderson has offered as one of three pieces she will display in the upcoming annual exhibit by the Wayne Artists Group Effort. This year's exhibit, "Reflection," opens Friday, Jan. 12 with an artists' reception from 6-8 p.m. at the Wayne Center for the Arts in downtown Wooster. It continues through Feb. 17. Anders..

Brutal ancient mass sacrifice REVEALED: Sick priests ripped out hearts of children

Evidence of the largest single incident of mass child sacrifice by members of the sprawling ancient Chimú Empire where up to 140 children and 200 young llamas were killed. The children were between five to 14 years, according to reports.

Actress CCH Pounder's new art exhibit at Xavier explores black female beauty and power

Actress CCH Pounder stood half-hidden in a doorway at the Xavier University Art Gallery and watched as a student, backpack over one shoulder, hurried through the spacious hall, then abruptly stopped and turned on his heel, as if dragged by gravitational force. Shifting his body 90 degrees, the student tilted his head and studied a large painting on the wall. "The Birth of Oshun" by Harmonia Rosales. The painting is striking for many reasons. The scene is familiar, a play on Botticelli's "The Birth of Venus," but Oshun is a black woman, beautiful with cropped hair, rising from a seashell, flanked by other African figures portraying deities and surrounded by tropical foliage in earthy colors. "She stops everyone," said Pounder, as the student stared at Rosales' tour de force. "I love watching people walk through here and see what catches them." "The Birth of Oshun" is among 42 paintings in "Queen: An Exhibition," which features works from Pounder's private collection now ..

: Tarsila do Amaral: Inventing Modern Art in Brazil

Tarsila do Amaral (Brazilian, 1886–1973) is a foundational figure in the history of modernism in Latin America. The first exhibition in the United States exclusively devoted to the artist focuses on her pivotal production from the 1920s, from her earliest Parisian works, to the emblematic modernist paintings produced in Brazil, ending with her large-scale, socially driven works of the early 1930s. The exhibition features over 130 artworks, including paintings, drawings, sketchbooks, photographs, and other historical documents drawn from collections across Latin America, Europe, and the United States. Born in São Paulo at the turn of the 19th century, Tarsila―as she is affectionately known in Brazil―studied piano, sculpture, and drawing before leaving for Paris in 1920 to attend the Académie Julian. Throughout subsequent sojourns in Paris, she studied with André Lhote, Albert Gleizes, and Fernand Léger, fulfilling what she called her "military service in Cubism," ultimately arriving at ..
