Croatian Merchandise and more

Postby AzizalSaqr » Wed Nov 29, 2006 11:24 am

For those of you who would like to support Bleu Profond 2 and do your Christmas shopping at the same time, or who are just looking for a little something for yourself, we've just entered into an affiliate program with CafePress.com.

When you visit their site and purchase merchandise, a percentage of your sale will come back to Bleu Profond 2 to help us with web costs and eventually with the addition of space that might allow us to host entire copies of Goran's older Croatian videos.

CafePress.com features thousands of items including those with Croatian designs. You'll also find ones dealing with politics, animals & wildlife, art, hobbies, and more.

Here's the direct link for the Croatian Merchandise:

Art
by
MARIJANA PINTAR GRISNIK

To introduce Marijana one could begin with a quote from the book "Images of Strawberry Hill," published by the Kansas State Historical Society.

"Marijana Grisnick possesses an extraordinary talent that has been recognized by scholars and laypersons alike. The images she creates on canvas are not soon forgotten by observers who are drawn into her world—the world of Marijana's youth—Strawberry Hill."

Marijana, a nonacademic painter has been telling the story of Strawberry Hill through her artwork for thirty years. She has completed 250 paintings and continues to paint. Marijana's paintings preserve a lasting record of the traditional Croatian/American culture of Strawberry Hill for future generations.

Her exhibitions include 25, one-woman exhibitions in the United States and two in Croatia. The Balch Institute of America chose two of her paintings to represent the Croatian in America for a three-year exhibition that toured the United States. She was chosen to be the artist to paint in the first Folk Life Festival in the state of Kansas.

Ten of Marijana's paintings are in the collections in Croatia, which include:

The Cultural Ministry of Croatia in Zagreb
City of Karlovac
Vladimir Nazor Children's Home, Karlovac, where Marijana is a member of Zilik (a group of artists who believe that art is great when it is created with love and given to others).
The Museum of Naïve Art, Zagreb, Croatia
Forty of Marijana's paintings are in the permanent collection of the Kansas Museum of History in Topeka. Marijana has been recognized as a famous Kansan and a Notable Kansas Woman.

"Just as the brush is a tool by which a painter paints the world around her, the painter herself is a tool by which the people and place she is part of convey their world and preserve it for future generations."

Early in 1900 many Croatians immigrated to the United States from Croatia to Kansas City, Kansas. They settled in a small community called Strawberry Hill.

A very small area, boundaries were Third Street on the east, Fifth Street on the west, Armstrong Avenue on the north, and Orville Avenue on the south.

Many Croatian-Americans lived outside these boundaries, they came up to the Hill to go to church, school, socials, and to visit.

"Heart of Croatia" carries this print by MARIJANA (whose father is from Crni Lug in Gorski Kotar) called "In A Croatian Village" (below).

"Heart of Croatia" carries this Limited Edition on canvas, entitled, "Christmas."

ADRIATIC BREEZE
A Croatian Wine Event

Thursday May 19, 2011
6:00 p.m.

Ana Tzarev Gallery

24 West 57th St.
New York City

The National Federation of Croatian Americans (NFCA) and the Croatians of New York & Los Angeles (CNYLA) are proud to present Adriatic Breeze, an evening of exquisite wine and music at the Ana Tzarev Gallery on Thursday, May 19, 2011 at 6:00 PM.

We will present an extensive Croatian wine selection paired with several different small plates that will remind you of the warm and light breezes of the Adriatic Sea. Immerse yourself in the world of sound and flavors.

A music showcase will be provided by award winning artists Ludvig & Stelar. Recent winner of the Best Independent International Musical Documentary, Damir Ludvig, has graciously teamed with CNYLA to bring you amazing sounds from the Adriatic Coast. With more than a decade of collaborative work in the studio, Damir Ludvig and Goran "Stelar" Stetic have acquired a broad musical repertoire forging ahead through a variety of successful musical projects. Ludvig & Stelar explore the wide-open range of both electronic and acoustic instrumentation available for creating first-class easy listening music. Ludvig & Stelar are more like adventurous travelers taking expeditions to a place where dreams become reality. Ludvig & Stelar create the perfect soundtrack for those summer afternoons in Croatia, where a cool drink with the slowly setting sun smoothly give way to what the night has in store. Much like the sounds of the sea, let Ludvig & Stellar take you away with their relaxing sounds. Emerge yourself in the world of sound and flavors. Join us at the Ana Tzarev Gallery and enjoy a delectable night of wines under the city lights of Manhattan while being taken away by a warm, Adriatic Breeze...

The National Federation of Croatian Americans (NFCA) ( http://www.nfcaonline.com/) has been established to maintain a national infrastructure and network linking Croatian-American organizations and individual activists willing to work together and coordinate priority activities that enhance the Croatian image in the United States and truly promote programs that strengthen and support the many cultural, educational, humanitarian, public relations, social and political activities that are most important to the national Croatian American community.

The Croatians of New York & Los Angeles (CNYLA) ( http://www.cnyla.com/) promotes unity, education, and culture amongst young professional Croatians and their colleagues to bring together the future of Croatian-Americans from coast to coast.
