"We are a tough group," Richard Karnatz said of his fellow artists, whose exhibition highlights professional success achieved in the face of personal limitations. "The heart with which we overcame our physical and mental challenges is self-evident in the work represented here," Karnatz said via e-mail. "Each artist I met put me in awe of the odds they worked against. Painters without arms. Printers missing eyes. Writers recovering from strokes." Sponsored by the Independent Arts Gallery, a project of the Queens Independent Living Center in Jamaica, the 14th annual juried exhibition celebrates the Americans With Disabilities Act. The show's curator, Christian Valle of Glendale, is a painter who lost the use of both hands in a diving accident. Karnatz, who sustained a brain injury in a bicycle accident, is a printmaker whose work is in the National Gallery of Art, and the Smithsonian. He is one of 42 artists reptresented in the show. "It shows who we are and how valiantly we have appeared in the art scene among our more-abled peers in spite of all odds," said Charles Bourke Wildbank, whose portrait of French mime Marcel Marceau is in the exhibit. "Painting and drawing have been my lifeblood since I was born hearing impaired and unable to speak up until much later in my teens. It was my prime means of communication and spoke volumes conveniently for me at the time when I needed it most."


(Charles Bourke Wildbank's portrait of French mime artist Marcel Marceau is one of the 90 works in the exhibition "Spirit of the ADA" at the Federal Plaza Building in Manhattan through Aug. 17)









On Wildbank
Reinventing a New Reality in Art

"...Photorealism with touches of Surrealism characterizes Wildbank's style. The experience of being a deaf artist in America has changed and evolved alongside history, culture and technology. Where earlier deaf artists had limited options for training, subject matter, or even survival as a "working artist", today's deaf artists also find themselves with multitudes of options-including the role of cultural identity..."

"A giant oil of three pears and a Chinese plate by Charles Wildbank bring the dining room alive with its vibrant colors. The buffet was once a merchant's counter; santons are typical craft pieces from Provence; the grape harvest basket holds porcelain melons; the lamp bases were once planter's urns. On one trip to Paris, the Stillermans bought eight chairs that had once been in a hotel...."



FLYING LADY November-December 1998


"A wedding occurred immediately after our judging competition on the lawn of Hammersmith Farms in Newport, RI (which coincidentally was the site of John F. Kennedy's wedding to Jacqueline Bouvier in 1953.) How fitting! Some have compared our meets to planning a wedding.....At the meet, Charles Wildbank displayed among other paintings, a large painting of a Phantom V"

GALLERIES: La Cienega Area... "Charles Wildbank's debut solo is unusual because we so rarely see Photo-Realism in local commercial galleries. It's odd in expressing a value system more common to young stockbrokers than young artists. Wildbank's tour-de-force work is a 7 by 11 foot behemoth called "Paris Match-La Rupture". It depicts an immensely enlarged silver tea service viewed from above. It bears pretty flowers, a matchbook from a fancy French hotel and rests on a copy of a magazine, the cover of which bears a pretty lady (Princess Caroline of Monaco) and the earth shattering news that she-some princess or other- is breaking up with her playboy husband.......if the state of society is terminal narcissism, he is getting it down right." (Herbert Palmer Gallery, N. La Cienega Blvd.)
