“Paradigm Shifts” @ Heather Gaudio Fine Art Tickets
Sep 14 – Nov 25 all-day
"Paradigm Shifts" @ Heather Gaudio Fine Art |  |  |

Heather Gaudio Fine Art is pleased to announce “Paradigm Shifts,” a group exhibition featuring paintings by Charles Arnoldi, Ricardo Mazal and Manuel Mérida. The show opens on September 14th with a reception for the artists from 5-7pm, and will run through November 25th.

The artists in this exhibition explore the potential of painting as a medium, challenging its normative paint application and structure. Whether selecting pigments in their primordial form, applying them with non-traditional tools, or presenting irregular supports, these artists break with convention all-the-while maintaining an aesthetic foothold in modernism.

About the artists:

Charles Arnoldi has had a decades-long distinguished career as an artist investigating the formal aspects of paintings and sculpture. Shapes, color, and proportion are motifs he continually revisits in his work, suggesting architectural elements or forms seen in nature, such as tropical plant life. The show will feature Arnoldi’s geometric abstractions, colorful balances of rigid grids containing gestural arcs. Some of these compositions are disrupted by the non-uniform shapes of his canvases. Arnoldi paints on individual panels and later assembles them, at times leaving them un-aligned and making way for gaps and irregular edges. The nature of the hard-edged geometric compositions becomes more apparent with the play between the foreground and background and their spatial relationships. A numerous award recipient, Arnoldi has been featured in many international exhibitions and his work is extensively collected in private, corporate and public collections including The Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Museum of Modern Art, The Art Institute of Chicago, Guggenheim Museum, Bilbao, The Menil Collection, Houston, and the Norton Simon Museum in Pasadena.

Ricardo Mazal explores themes of spirituality in his abstract paintings, using vibrant colors and refined, minimal forms that can have smooth or finely textured surfaces. Mazal achieves these effects with an unorthodox pigment application, using rubber tipped blades or carved out grooves on the tips of paintbrushes. Starting with photography in what he defines to be the bridge between reality and abstraction, Mazal manipulates digital imagery to arrive at his sketches. Some canvases have grid compositions with contrasting palettes, creating a formal balance of tension and harmony. These geometric abstractions draw from Mazal’s personal investigations of sacred burial rituals in various cultures across the globe. The Bhutan series references colorful prayer flags bestowing their blessings to the wind in the region. Other paintings in the show recall the terrain of national parks outside his home in Santa Fe, geological strata that have been carved out of the bedrock over the ages. A leading artist from Mexico, Mazal has been featured in many exhibitions in the Americas, Asia and Europe and his work is included in the permanent collections of Museo de Arte Moderno, Mexico City, the Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art, and the Maeght Foundation in Paris, among others.

Manuel Mérida is another artist who originally hailed from Latin America before moving to Paris where he currently resides. His work does not conform to the traditional notion that painting is an oil on canvas. Instead, he presents brightly colored pigments in their primal form: powder. These monochromatic colors are encased in a round frame set to rotate at a steady, consistent speed, causing the powdered pigment to move. The work is in perpetual motion, creating new gestures of forms, light, shadow and space that continually shift and are never the same. Mérida was greatly influenced by contemporary kinetic and constructivist artists such as Jesús Rafael Soto, Julio Le Parc and Lygia Clark whom he met when he emigrated to France in the late 1960s. However, he considers himself to be a gestural painter rather than a kinetic artist. Mérida has had numerous solo and group exhibitions in Latin America and Europe and his work is in many collections including the Museo de Bellas Artes in Caracas.

POSITIVE PARENTING COURSE with Ann Magalhaes @ Wainwright House Tickets
Oct 11 @ 9:30 am – Dec 13 @ 10:30 am
POSITIVE PARENTING  COURSE with Ann Magalhaes @ Wainwright House |  |  |

10-MODULES – Pre-Registration Required
Wednesdays; Oct 11, 18, 25, Nov 1, 8, 15, 22, Dec 6, 13 Time: 9:30-11:30am

The Positive Parenting Course is for parents and carers who want to have a toolbox of parenting skills and strategies to manage the day-to-day challenges of being a parent.

Module 1 – Oct 11 – Descriptive Praise: How to develop your child’s motivation, co- operation and confidence using Descriptive Praise.

Module 2 – Oct 18 – Emotion Coaching: Improve your emotional bond with your children, encourage communication and good behavior by understanding and helping children manage their emotions more effectively.

Module 3 – Oct 25 – Setting up for Success: How to make home life more harmonious and reduce stressful moments.

Module 4 – Nov 1 – Values, Rules and Rewards: How to formulate, communicate and follow through on rules consistently in ways that pass on the values you want for your children and encourage cooperation while preserving a child’s individuality.

Module 5 – Nov 8 – Positive Discipline: How to respond constructively to unwanted behaviors in ways that teach children to take responsibility and learn from their mistakes without damaging self- esteem.

Module 6 – Nov 15 – Fostering independence and encouraging good habits: Apply the skills to train your children in those attributes that you think would benefit them as adults. Training children to be more self-reliant boosts their confidence as well as gives them skills for life.

Module 7 – Nov 22 – Being in Charge: Explore what it means to be an authoritative parent – one who can lead and teach without being overly controlling.

Module 8 – Nov 29 – Fostering good relationships between siblings and other children: Look at ways to foster positive relationships between children, siblings and friends, and ways of resolving conflict constructively.

Module 9 – Dec 6 – Keeping Calm: How to structure your life so that you can access your positive parenting skills when faced with provocative behavior. Assess whether your expectations of your children are realistic by reference to stages of development and temperament.

Module 10 – Dec 13 – What to do when your children push your buttons: When our buttons have been pushed our skills go out the window and we respond to our children’s behavior in ineffective ways. Learn how to recognize and defuse your buttons so you can react appropriately in the face of ‘button-pushing’ behavior.

During the course you will be given tasks so you can take the skills home and practice between sessions, knowing that each week you can come back to get further coaching on how you can use these skills to have a positive impact on your family’s life.
