SUSAN GARDOS ( b. June 29, 1942 - d. October 30, 2011 )
Friend, Associate, Mother, Artist and more. ..
It is very sad and unfortunate to have lost my good friend, trusted associate and artist Susan Gardos. She was a caring and considerate individual. Her illustrative work encompassed a broad range of images and ideas that were appealing to both young and old alike. Backed by decades of professional experience as a commercial artist, herd work has been published for book covers, advertising and packaging.
She will be very much missed.

Press release - 04/12/2007 re: Dubi Arie & "The Mission"
Landmark Design is pleased to announce it's direct representation and involvement with one of Dubi Aries most ambitious acomplishments to date. Unique in scope and unrivalled in proportion, “The Mission”, commemorating 4000 years of Jewish history, speaks to the struggle of people of all ages, and religious persuasions and was created to remind us all, to end the aggression that leads to war and destruction between nations and stop the hate that divides the peoples of the world. It is Dubi Arie’s ardent hope that “The Mission” will impart deep feelings of unity to the Jewish people, and establish bridges of understanding between Jews and all of mankind.
Through new exhibitions, corporate sponsorship and public support, we are hopeful that this work’s enormous artistic and educational value can be shared globally, and that a permanent home for this historically relevant work of art can be found in time for Israel’s sixtieth year of independence celebration in 2008.

Exhibition: August 17 - August 19, 2012 - Buckhorn Ontario
Buckhorn Fine Art Festival - 35th Anniversary / Buckhorn Community Festival, 1801 Lakehurst Road Buckhorn Ontario
As one of the most dynamic artists in North America, Hungarian born Ernie Cselko brought us decades of passion creative expression through his work. He was one of Canada’s leading illustrators, a fine art painter, a private tutor, listed in the Canadian Who’s Who and a favourite of the Bradford Exchange.
His unmistakable line style is reminiscent of both Rockwell and Leyendecker, and his powerful painting of shadow, shine and reflection was centered around his unique, condensed formula of the old masters “chiaroscuro” technique. He is most revered for his historically accurate and highly realistic images of Buckskinners and Native Americans.
Cselko’s longstanding and deep connection to the Kawartha’s region and it’s history makes the inclusion of “Return of the Eagle” in the Buckhorn Fine Art Festival’s 35th anniversary exhibition an especially fitting choice; and a noble tribute to this artist and his work.
Sadly, Ernie Cselko passed away in 2007. We invite you to experience this rare opportunity to view and purchase one of the few remaining original paintings by this accomplished Canadian artist.

"The Mission" Under the Wings of G_d and the Shadow of Amalek
The Art of Dubi Arie - University of Miami Miller Centre for Judaic Studies
Dave and Mary Alper JCC, 11155 SW 112 Ave. Miami Florida
The centerpiece of this amazing exhibit is the 19’ x 7’ long Mission, which vibrantly illuminates 4,000 years of Jewish history beginning with the patriarch Abraham and culminating with the Jewish nation. Twenty years from inception to completion, The Mission radiates with brilliant color and imagery and draws the viewer into the rich texture woven from the interplay of elements and archetypes that are icons of the Jewish odyssey through the ages. Explanatory text illuminates each of its seven panels. With The Mission, Dubi Arie, artist, Israeli soldier, farmer and Holocaust survivor, completed a dream that was conceived on June 7, 1967, the day that East Jerusalem was liberated during the Six Day War by Israeli paratroopers, regaining control of the Western Wall. Also included in the exhibit are gorgeous oils, lithographs and mixed media pieces, all for sale. Grand Opening coincides with A Jew Grows in Brooklyn in the Russell Theater
