Canvas Chronicles: Meet Wendy Sullivan, the Artist Who Made the Starry Night Out of Hair Extensions

Words by Su Ertekin-Taner Artist Wendy Sullivan’s house and barn are full of bins. Unlike the uber-organized parent or the halfway-moved homeowner though, Sullivans bins don’t store the children’s newest baubles or appliances respectively. Her collection of plastic bins are not household treasures at all — and especially don’t lend themselves to the household part of that phrase.    Instead, Sullivan’s bins hold used takeout containers, discarded textiles, nostalgic chunky telephones a couple decades past their prime, straws and chopsticks, computer parts, dismantled musical instruments, rusty tools, Happy Meal toys, and one particular metal fan grill that she adventurously won …

Neighborhood Picasso

Words by Kelila Ritchie Chris Clark has been painting his way through the neighborhoods of Jacksonville, bringing the most vibrant colors to communities people often deem the opposite of aesthetically pleasing. Clark is not new to the art community and has spent many years perfecting his craft. A “jack of all trades” he calls himself. His ability to create in different mediums, sometimes at the same time is mindblowing. During Black History Month especially, it is important to highlight Black art and its impact. Clark’s artwork has brought people out of their homes and given them a new sense of …

Postcards and Poems: Who Knew?

  Words by Mallory Pace   The year is 2020 and Clark Lunberry has been sitting around his house for far too long. The pandemic is just beginning to put the world on pause as Lunberry yearns for his life of teaching and traveling back. He stares at buckets of shredded paper from his favorite book and a box of postcards his late father left behind, over 750 that is. And almost by accident, he recalls, the two fell together, perfectly in place. An accident that is now a published book of remarkable visual poetry — “Seeking Frozen Sound.”   …

Louise Freshman Brown: An Artist’s Story Through a Studio

Words by Su Ertekin-Taner   Multimedia artist Louise Freshman Brown makes her art in the studio tacked onto her garage. She describes the studio’s location as a choice of convenience, an architectural choice also that would be brought to fruition by her architect sister: “My sister designed my house. She was the architect. I wanted to be able to get from my car to my studio easily,” Freshman Brown says.    Unlike the rest of her home, though, the studio isn’t meant to be a cuddly, comfortable space. Rather, Freshman Brown tells me “it’s like a kitchen.” By this she …
