Anthony Ulinski

About the artist

I began my career in the arts as a studio furniture maker in 1976. My furniture and sculpture have been exhibited at the Smithsonian Craft Fair, the Philadelphia Museum of Art Craft Fair, Funeria in San Francisco, and the John Elder Gallery in New York.

In 1993 I began painting, studying with Elizabeth Lentz, Jacob Cooley, and Beverly McIver. I had my first solo show of paintings in 2001 at Hager Smith Design Gallery in Raleigh. Since then, I have had solo shows every year, and regularly participate in juried and invitational group shows. My work has been featured in arts magazines and on book covers. My awards include painting fellowships at The Virginia Center for Creative Arts and Vermont Studio Center.

I continue woodworking, accepting commissions and creating new work for galleries and exhibitions.

I also teach woodworking and painting workshops. I have taught at Penland School of Crafts in North Carolina, Arrowmont School of Crafts in Tennessee, Peters Valley Craft Center in New Jersey, Haystack in Maine, the Durham Arts Council, the Pocosin Arts Center in Columbia, North Carolina, and East Carolina University in Greenville, North Carolina.

Amadeus – Constance Pappalardo

Constance Pappalardo

Amadeus |  Graphite, ink & charcoal on linen canvas | 36”H x 60”W (1.5”D)

This piece is inspired by Mozart’s Requiem.

“Most of the black and white verticals were born out of the genius of others, such as Mozart and Bach. When I am listening to a piece of classical music and I close my eyes, what I see is the lines, the vibrations and explosions of the sounds, the notes, the music. It always comes to me that way. And in black and white, never color, perhaps referencing the notes and sheet music I have seen throughout my life.”

About the artist

Born in Lima, Peru and raised in New York City, Constance Pappalardo studied painting at the Art Students League and the School of Visual Arts.

She has been in Raleigh since 1986 and is a member of Artspace and the Visual Art Exchange in Raleigh, and the Durham Art Guild. She is best known for her richly pigmented watercolor on canvas paintings as well as her minimalistic black and white paintings. Her works are included in corporate and private collections here and abroad. She has been donating her art to Works of Heart since 2006.

Contrasts – Eric Raddatz
Contrasts | Photography | 49”H x 37-½”W (framed)

“For years, Eric Raddatz has photographed the little details of life, the forgotten drips, chinks, and scratches that mar our everyday vision, all from the mottled skin of parking garages, the rusted carcasses in junkyards. His photographs—his art—gives new life to each.”
— Neil Hinson, Artsee magazine May-June 2011

About the artist

Undeserved – Gayle Stott Lowry

Gayle Stott Lowry

Undeserved | Oil and wax on canvas | 30”H x 30”W (2”D)

This abstract painting, Undeserved, is part of my series Paradox. It speaks to my life-long repulsion for guns and the violence that they facilitate. The various flesh tones in the painting represent victims of all races.
