Once in a Life Time Opportunity for me! Educational Trip To Legendary American Artist Paul Maxwell’s Studio in May 2017

Hello everybody,

Yes, I started a GoFundMe Campaign. Please don’t hate me. I have been offered to go out to San Diego to the Legendary American Artist Paul Maxwell‘s studio to work/study for the last few years but never could afford it. I know many people know how much I talk about Paul and his agent and what they mean to me and what I mean to them. A very special bond between us has formed over the years. My time is running out for me to do this. I was offer a last opportunity several days ago by his agent to go out this May to study/work out of Paul Maxwell‘s studio for the whole month of May. Many of my family and friends know how many risks, sacrifices and dedications I have made over the last 20 years musically and artistically to follow my dreams. I have never taken the safe path. If you truly believe in what I am doing and can do please donate any amount to help my way to San Diego: $5, $10, $20 or more and/or share this link to spread the word. Thank you, Jared C. Balogh

Once in a Life Time Opportunity for me!

In the month of May, 2017––
I have an opportunity to work out of the legendary American Artist Paul Maxwell’s ART studio and home, in San Diego, CA.

While there working on my art (painting on canvas) it would also afford me opportunities to call on Art Galleries in San Diego and the Los Angeles areas and further my education in the arts and culture by being able to visit and attend various events in Museums..

Funds would be used for:

Airfare
Car rental
Gasoline
Food
Art Supplies bought while there working
Loss of income from my not be able to work at earning an income

I would need the funds of $3,900 before the end of April. I must have at least the amount for the Airfare and the Car Rental ASAP.

Each dollar donated would mean the world to me.

I need people to understand I have made many sacrifices in these last 20 years in devotion to my creative work in the ARTS –– this opportunity provided me could tremendously boost my career to a better level.

It is my goal to complete (4) paintings / Acrylic on Canvas while working out of the Paul Maxwell ART Studio and then find a Gallery in the area to consign my newest works of art produced there.

“For The Risk Of Everything” @ Gallery 724 (Allentown, PA) January 19th, 2017

About my artist vision:

I am a self-taught artist who draws from many disciplines. My creative process is largely improvised and free-flowing, giving my work a distinctive character that has been described as Surrealist and Abstract Expressionist. Creating art for me is a subtle process of communication and discovery. Conceptually, I draw from a number of themes including: Nature, Humor, Cityscapes, Abstraction, Surrealism, Figurative, Self-Portraits, Animals, and The Unconscious/Subconscious Mind.

My work is meant to be freely and openly interpreted. My purpose is to invoke fresh, unexpected perspectives in my audience. I aim to break conceptual boundaries through my choice of subject matter by delving into uncharted territory drawn mainly from personal experience and emotional states

Jared C. Balogh (American, 1975-Present) is a self-taught artist from Bethlehem, PA. The breadth of his work expands across many disciplines, including painting, sculpture, music video production, photography, sound art, and soundtracks for both the performing and digital arts. His vision encompasses the diverse, textured, surreal, abstract, complex, and simplistic. Much of his work revolves around themes such as humor, animals, nature, cityscapes, self-portraits, and abstraction.

Over the last 20 years, Balogh produced 150 paintings, 20 sculptures, 40 music videos and stop action animations, and an array of album covers. Also a musician, Balogh has produced a prolific repertoire of sound art under various monikers which have been released on experimental/avant-garde net and record labels domestically and internationally. His compositions have been used for live performances and art installations around the world.  Since 2016, his art has been displayed in galleries, cafes, and business in the Lehigh Valley, Berks County, Lancaster, and New York, and his work has been featured in performance and art installations in Australia, Italy, Spain, Florida, New York City, Portland (Oregon), Philadelphia, Colorado, Massachusetts, San Francisco and Brooklyn.

Paul E. Maxwell was a modern artist and sculptor who developed a technique for using stencils to create thickly textured and layered surfaces, as well as objects he patented as “stencil casting” but that later became known as “Maxwell Pochoir.” He was also known for creating the “Max Wall” in the West Atrium of the Dallas Apparel Mart; though demolished in 2006, it can be seen as a backdrop in the science-fiction movie Logan’s Run. His work is highly abstract and often consists of some kind of grid—a form that is non-hierarchical and illustrates a major theme of his work.

Paul Maxwell was born in Frost Prairie (Ashley County) on September 17, 1925, to the farm family of Willie F. and Robert M. Maxwell. The sixth of seven children, Maxwell considered himself an artist from an early age and recalled the landscape of Frost Prairie as “pure form—wide unbroken fields of tall grass which the slightest breeze could shape into waves and ripples of golden light.” He said that drawing in the exposed clay soil there may have been an early inspiration for the kind of textured surfaces he would later create.

When Maxwell was nine, the family moved to Bastrop, Louisiana, where he completed high school. Maxwell went on to graduate from Principia College in Elsah, Illinois, in 1950 with a BA in art, followed by graduate work at Claremont College in California. While at Claremont, Maxwell had his first museum show in Stockton, California. In 1951, Maxwell exhibited his work at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art in a show that included such artists as Picasso, Miro, and Matta; also that year, he had his first commercial gallery exhibition.

From 1955 to 1958, Maxwell taught at the Houston Museum of Art and at the University of Houston. From 1959 to 1961, he lectured and exhibited his work in Europe under the sponsorship of the U.S. Information Agency while maintaining a gallery in Switzerland. During the rest of the 1960s and into the 1970s and 1980s, Maxwell lived and worked in Texas and Oklahoma, receiving commissions for works in public spaces such as a wall sculpture in the Will Rogers World Airport in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, and the free-standing sculpture for the lobby of the Stark County Library in Canton, Ohio.

It was also during the 1970s that Maxwell developed and created pieces using his stencil-casting technique. In 1985, a twelve-minute documentary that dealt with Maxwell’s work was produced by Carol Shroeder and broadcast by PBS. The documentary, titled Paul Maxwell: Lines/Horizons, won the American Film Festival Red Ribbon Award for Best Short Documentary and the Mitchell Wilder Gold Medal Award given by the Texas Association of Museums, both in 1986. Maxwell was also the subject of the 2007 short film Through a Veil of Knowledge: The Legacy of Paul Maxwell, directed by Richard Balin.

Maxwell had exhibitions in galleries and museums throughout the United States and in England, Switzerland, France, Canada, and Australia. The permanent collection at the Arkansas Arts Center in Little Rock (Pulaski County) includes the Maxwell piece Regimenta (1980), an acrylic painting on paper.

Maxwell died on July 10, 2015.

January 27th was “Music Night I” had performances by Pink Hex and Ningen Kiki with performances by the Megan Flynn Dance Company.  February 3rd was “Poetry Night” featuring local poets and musicians like Matt Wolf, Cleveland Wall, Nate Marks, Diqua Grinson, Burton Stehly, Danielle Notaro and Jamie Beth.  “Comedy Night” was February 9th with appearance by local comedians Nate Marks with Katherine Corsino, Russell Austin, Ian Webster and Big Papa Smurf.  The last show for the “For The Risk Of Everything” show was “Music Night II” that had performances by Mike Lorenz and Chelsea Smarr.   Also, on a couple days during my time at Gallery 724 had a solo experimental bass guitar jamm session and a duo experimental bass guitar session with Cale Muffley.  Down below are some pictures, videos and recordings from the time at Gallery 724. At the end of the show I end up selling a few paintings.  I was kind of hard to see some of them leave me. Overall, it was an amazing experience.  My first big step into the art world.  Here I come!!!!

“Parallel Souls” appears on indie movie “Lost Colony”

Trans Atlantic Rage/Balogh song “Parallel Souls” appears on indie movie “Lost Colony” directed by Christopher Holmes.  To purchase: “Lost Colony“/Follow on Facebook: “Lost Colony

Lost Colony

Feature Film purchase / 2015 / 84 min / Stereo
Starring: Joshua Brady, Sam Buchanan, Stephanie Morgan, Phillip Ward
Directed by: Christopher Holmes
www.lostcolonyfilm.com

“‘This book should be made into a movie’ is often said, but “this movie ought to be written as a book” is a rarer statement. It applies to Lost Colony, an indie that roils with inner conflicts and percolates with a rich sense of place.” – Duane Byrge, The Hollywood Reporter

“Lost Colony may frustrate viewers looking for a more traditional three-act structure, but I would urge them to weather the course, as there are deep riches in these waters, sharks notwithstanding.”
– Christopher Llewellyn Reed, Hammer to Nail

Synopsis:
While navigating life with his hyper-protective mother along the enigmatic Outer Banks of North Carolina’s coast–site of the first attempted English settlement in the New World–conflicted teen Loren learns of his expecting girlfriend’s ambivalence toward him. After a near tragic accident, he must learn to reassemble the broken pieces into a stronger, wiser form and approach a more worldly consciousness. A searchlight cast upon the earliest traces of America and the mystery of settlers vanished, Lost Colony scans a once virgin watershed for signs of life

Lezet- Frustrations

“The tracks on “Frustrations” were recorded
upon arriving home after 3 frustrating days at work. The keys were banged at,
played with palms, wrists, elbows, feet and clumsy fingers, pressed with wooden
sticks  and yelled at.”-Lezet
