Carlos Alves [Certified Visual Artist – Miami, FL]

Carlos Alves [Certified Visual Artist – Miami, FL]

Carlos Alves is a Side Arts Certified Visual Artist from Miami, Florida.

Carlos Alves has been serious about art since he was a child. It shows in his passion for making things out of clay, glass, metal, salvaged artifacts, and recycled objects. His mission to make art from anything is encapsulated in his motto, “Chip it, crack it, smash it. Put it back together and give it whole new life.” He draws from his Cuban / Puerto Rican roots and South Florida upbringing, communicating the themes that encompass love, hope, history, culture, politics, nature, and a kinship with the sea.

Education

Carlos graduated with a Masters in Fine Art from Illinois State University, Bachelor of Fine Art from the University of Miami, and scholarship to Scuola Lorenzo Di Medici in Florence, Italy. He started his post-college career with a free-flowing tile installation located on the floor and walls of the Art Center South Florida. The project eventually led to commissions by several public and private clients in the United States, London, and Hong Kong. He is excited by making artwork that is seen in large public art settings such as airports, parks, fountains, courthouses, libraries, restaurants, galleries, and private residences.

Public Art

Recently, Carlos designed and completed a courtyard featuring a sculpture fountain, garden benches, planters, seating rocks, and bamboo railing at a rehabilitation facility in Fort Lauderdale; mosaic sidewalk “Save Our Water” for Miami-Dade Water/Sewer Department; and entrance / ticketing area for the Port Everglades’ Holland America Terminal.

He often enjoys projects with local youth and has accomplished many public artworks working with them including “The River Poetry Project”, “The Miami Children’s Museum”, and a 186-foot mural at the entrance of the new Miami-Dade County Children’s Court House. Carlos works closely with his wife and partner of over twenty years, JC Carroll, in all aspects of public art from concept, design, and manufacturing, to completion.

Private Work

As much as Carlos enjoys the public art arena, he loves creating pieces for private clients, museums, and gallery exhibitions. He is currently working on a series, “Animal Instincts”, creating large, animal shaped clay bodies filled with recycled figurines and glass. The final piece in the series is a globe that will show the animals and sea life of each region and the fragile ecosystems of the world with emphasis on showing the planet’s need for our protection.

Linda Fitzgerald [Certified Visual Artist – Fort Collins, CO]

Linda Fitzgerald is a Side Arts Certified Visual Artist from Fort Collins, Colorado.

Linda Fitzgerald was born in the Hudson Valley area of New York State and has been a Fort Collins resident since 1988. Before settling in Colorado, Linda’s path took her to San Francisco and Santa Fe where her passion for both visual and culinary art began to blossom.

In San Francisco, Linda befriended nationally acclaimed sculptress Ruth Cravath Wakefield and fine art painter Charles Farr. Both inspired and influenced Linda on her creative journey. In 1978, Linda moved to New Mexico where she had the honor of working as a Companion/Chef for Georgia O’Keeffe at Ms. O’Keeffe’s Abiquiu home. There were many conversations about creativity. Linda took to heart the advice Ms. O’Keeffe gave her, “Paint the way you paint! Don’t allow others to tell you how your painting should look. Instructors want you to paint like them, but then it’s not your work, it’s theirs’.”

Robert Deschenes [Certified Visual Artist – St-Hubert-de-Riviere-du-Loup, Quebec]

Robert Deschenes [Certified Visual Artist – St-Hubert-de-Riviere-du-Loup, Quebec]

Robert Deschenes is a new Side Arts Certified Visual Artist from St-Hubert-de-Riviere-du-Loup, Quebec, Canada.

Robert Deschenes was born on July 20, 1959, in Ville Dégelis, Temiscouata County, a great place to observe both aquatic and terrestrial fauna.

Robert did not originally intend to pursue a career as a painter. It was while attending a collective animal art exhibition in Québec that he was deeply impressed by the animal-themed artwork. Sometime later and while discussing animal art at a party with his best friend, he suddenly realized (a strong intuition) that if he admired artists who focused their artwork on animals so much, it was because he wanted to be like them. So, Robert made the decision that evening to start his journey in animal art. He started by learning to draw realistically. Subsequently, he took watercolor lessons. In recent years, the observation of mammals and birds has become a passion for him. In his pictorial artwork, Robert conveys his love for the wildlife of North America to the observer.

Four of her paintings – “Bird,” “Blue Dog,” “Pigtails,” and “Yellow” – were selected by the Jury of The International ArtisTTable “Are You Serious?” Competition.
