Wonderwall design and furnishings shop in Sand City hosts two fun-filled events in support of the arts

For home builder, designer and collector Mark Cristofalo, authenticity speaks for itself.

Sand City, CA, April 10, 2019 – For home builder, designer and collector Mark Cristofalo, authenticity speaks for itself.

“That’s what people respond to, the authentic, the intuitive, the creative,” said Cristofalo, co-owner with his wife Carina of Wonderwall design and furnishings showroom in Sand City.

Toward that end, the couple will hold two upcoming events at Wonderwall honoring creativity and the arts within a community where they’ve raised four children.

On Friday, May 10, Wonderwall will hold an appreciation reception for Pacific Repertory Theater from 5:30-7:30 p.m. Sip wine, savor small bites and shop for a cause as the Cristofalos given back 20 percent of all sales to the Carmel-based theater company.

On Thursday, May 23, Wonderwall will host an art opening for acclaimed Carmel Valley contemporary artist Patricia Qualls, Ph.D, who will debut several of her large-scale, high-impact paintings (on display through Sept. 15).

The reception (from 5:30-8 p.m.) includes wine tasting, small bites, and a meet-and-greet with the artist, who will give a presentation titled “Why We Need Art in the Home.” Guests will have a chance to view and purchase her artwork.

Qualls’ art is represented by an international collection in Switzerland, and national collections in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, San Francisco, Boston, Phoenix, Dallas and other cities across the country. Her work is also part of the George Blair permanent collection at the Crocker Art Museum in Sacramento.

Qualls believes strongly in the freedom of expression, and believes that, by unblocking our internal restraints, we can begin to relinquish the creative comparisons and competition that limit our own expressions.

Qualls can often be found painting in her studio/gallery Patricia Qualls Contemporary Art in Carmel Valley, a beautiful 1,200-square-foot gallery with 15-foot ceilings and a half dozen skylights that bring sunshine to each of her high-impact, large-scale paintings.

There is great synergy between the artist and Wonderwall, blessed with a 3,000-square-foot space filled with antiques, art, furniture, furnishings, home décor and architectural elements. Every piece in the showroom has been unearthed by the Cristofalos, with an eye toward their uniqueness, originality and appeal.

“Wonderwall is a word I’ve always loved,” said Mark. “That’s what Wonderwall means to me, it’s a wall between the ordinary world and the extraordinary world. We try to build the extraordinary here that transcends the normal into a beautiful space.”

Carina believes our homes should be filled with things we love.

“We love to create beautiful sanctuaries,” she said. “And it may only be one piece that completes a look, a reflection of yourself. We’ve tried to find the one piece that defines that room, that defines that space.”

Such a powerful statement embodied in this piece of art made of stainless steel and bronze. According to Mr. Reiman, the symbolic bird soaring through a ring of the sun represents a future of wonder with the random letters that cover its form questioning the human experience and how we impact our future.

Bangalore, India, August 29, 2014 — ‘Berserk 2014’ – the 3-day Residential Art Conference for children came to a close with Grand Finale on 27th August, 2014 at the Amphitheatre in UB City.

All 4 verticals, namely Evam (Theatre), Lourd Vijay Dance Studio (LVDS) [Dance], Taaqademy (Music) & 3-Peel (Visual Art) reinforced the fact that they are indeed stalwarts in their respective fields, by giving breathtaking performances.

Excited students & parents, from this year’s edition as well as last year’s inaugural edition of Berserk, flocked to UB City to take part in the evening’s celebrations. Berserk is still a relatively new concept and it was heartening to see such whole-hearted support and encouragement for it from everyone present.

The Residential Art Conference for Berserk 2014 took place at ECC, Whitefield from 24th-27th August, 2014. To enable participation of a larger number of talented children, this year’s event was designed to include 110 children overall across the 4 verticals. This edition saw 2,000 students from 50 leading schools in Bangalore audition to take part in the conference. The tremendous success of the inaugural edition of Berserk was reinforced by the fact that parents travelled with their children all the way from Delhi, Chennai & Chikmagalur to participate in the Open Auditions this time around.

About ‘Berserk’:
