Suzanne Connors Shares “The Alchemy Of Indigo” At Lighthouse ArtCenter Thursday November 15

Suzanne Connors, the noted textile artist, says “the magic when the freshly dyed indigo comes out of the vat and turns from green to blue right before your eyes is like opening a gift on Christmas morning.” Join us at the Lighthouse ArtCenter in Tequesta, FL on Thursday, November 15th, when she reveals the mysteries of Indigo, once more valuable than gold, now taught in contemporary art and design.  3rd Thursdays at the Lighthouse ArtCenter are monthly receptions that bring together artists and art lovers to relish tasty hors d’oeuvres, quaff a nice wine and enjoy a variety of presentations. From cultural conversations with renown artists to exhibition openings and award ceremonies, guests are surrounded by the art installation in the gallery.  This month visitors will delight in Elegant Threads: Wearable Art and Surface Design. The Rickie Report shares the details and some sneak peeks.

Variety of Indigo Dyed Fabrics by Suzanne Connors

 

 

Suzanne Connors is a Fiber Artist in Stuart, Florida, who creates beautiful hand-dyed works of art at the Aya Fiber Studios located in the Fish House Art Center. She draws her inspiration from life in South Florida and her time spent living in the Caribbean Islands. She says that she is “enchanted by the colors of a setting sun and the Indigo blues of the sky and the sea.”

About Indigo from Aya Studios:

Indigo is an ancient dye derived from the leaves of plants and surrounded by magic, mystery and folklore. Discover how the leaves ‘make blue’ by learning about the character and chemistry of the natural indigo vat. The complex chemistry of the indigo vat is fascinating, and rituals have grown around the making and using of a successful vat. The unique ‘attaching’ of indigo to fiber means it is particularly suited to resist methods of dyeing, such as shibori, where portions of cloth are closed off to the dye or where the flow of dye is restricted. Different shades of blue build on the fabric after several dips, exhibiting the beautiful graded hues which are so typical of indigo.

“Energy” by Deborah  Bigeleisen

 

 

 

Deborah  Bigeleisen grew up in Los Angeles and attended college at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City, where she graduated with high honors.  Always entrepreneurial, and a risk taker,  Deborah was ahead of her time in establishing a global textile print design company in Manhattan where she served as the president and creative director for eighteen years.  

 

 

 

Deborah moved to West Palm Beach in 1998, and started painting as hobby.   Without any formal fine art education, her talent was cultivated through local art classes and master artists workshops.   She was mentored by renowned visionary Gordon Parks, whom she was proud to regard as a good friend. Within two years Bigeleisen’s paintings were accepted into fine established galleries, thus launching  her second successful career as a fine art painter.  Deborah says that she found a voice inside that she never knew she possessed.

 

“Romantic Interlude” by Deborah Bigeleisen

 

 

 

Whether painting highly representational images, or more non-objective visions, Deborah Bigeleisen’s dynamic and evocative paintings of flowers stand alone in the contemporary fine art arena. Her technique is rooted in the practices of the Dutch master artists;  her conceptual work is rooted in the principles of fractals.  Never being content to stay in her comfort zone, Deborah continually pushes her vision.  She does not subscribe to rules.  “Every painting is a fresh beginning, and a new journey; and  I cherish the unpredictability.”

 

 

 

Deborah Bigeleisen and “Fractal”

 

 

 

 

Deborah’s work has been represented by fine art galleries from Aspen; to San Francisco, to Naples, FL; to Washington, DC; to Southampton, NY, and to New York City. Her paintings have been prominently featured in international Contemporary and Fine Art Fairs.  Her work has been widely published in journals and art books ranging from Science Creative Quarterly, to Michael K. Corbin’s trilogy ‘A Collector’s Journal,’ to New Art International and Studio Visit. Her paintings have graced the covers and interior pages of international interior design publications including Florida Design, Miami Home & Décor, Art and Antiques, LUXE Magazine, and Architectural Digest. Deborah’s work is collected world-wide and enhances the corporate collections of American Airlines, Beauté Therapies Inc., The Koury Corp., and LBC Design & Construction to name just a few. Her paintings have received awards, and have been exhibited in numerous museum shows including the Boca Raton Museum of Art, the Platt / Bornstein Galleries at American Jewish University in Los Angeles, and the Williamsburg Art & Historical Center in Brooklyn, NY.

 

 

 

 

Untitled Diptych by Deborah Bigeleisen

 

 

 

Bigeleisen enjoys sharing her knowledge by lecturing on various art related topics; conducting private tours of Art Basel and Art Miami during Miami Art Week every December; and leading private museums tours where her focus is on “looking at art through the eyes and mind of an artist.”  She has served as an artist in residence; conducts artist workshops, and is an adjunct professor of art at Palm Beach State College.

 

 

 

Deborah is a long standing member of the National Association of Women Artists and the Cultural Council of Palm Beach County.  She served as chair person for Art and Public Places for the City of West Palm Beach for ten years.  She is an active member of Soroptimist International of the Palm Beaches; and a former board member of the Palm Beach County Women’s Chamber of Commerce. Deborah lives and works in Royal Palm Beach, Florida.

 

Ms. Bigeleisen’s paintings are sold through fine art galleries, and have been prominently exhibited in international Contemporary and Fine Art fairs including the Architectural Digest Home Design Show, ArtHamptons, the Chicago International Art Show, the LA Art Show, the Palm Beach Jewelry, Art and Antique Show and the Shanghai Art Fair. For more information, please visit  www.deborahbigeleisen.com.

 

 

 

The Wellington Art Society is a non-profit charitable organization in its 37th year. It is open to artists of all mediums and patrons of the arts, allowing both local and regional artists to display their art work in local galleries, interact with other artists and serve the community through their art.

The Clark Hulings Fund For Visual Artists Announces Art-Business Conference In Fort Lauderdale, February 1-2

The Clark Hulings Fund for Visual Artists (CHF) is excited to announce its Art-Business Conference in Fort Lauderdale, an event that seeks to inspire visual artists to “Conquer the Changing Marketplace.” This weekend-long business-development workshop will give professional working artists the chance to take a deep dive into the business side of their art careers. Scheduled for February 1 and 2, 2019, the event is funded in part by the Broward County Board of County Commissioners through the Broward Cultural Council. The two-day conference is co-sponsored by ArtServe, an active incubator for Broward County’s growing art community. The Rickie Report shares the details and urges you to sign up now for the cost-saving Early Bird (ends Nov. 15). In addition, we offer a $50 discount code for our readers! We look forward to seeing you there! This is open to all visual artists.

 

 

 

The event manifests CHF’s assertion that “Art is a business and artists should run it.” With the art market undergoing rapid and significant change—not only with regard to technology but also HOW art is marketed, bought, and sold—artists need to reclaim their rightful position at the center of the industry. The Art-Business Conference will help them to take charge of their careers, captivate their audience, maximize the extraordinary professional advantages they already possess and sell their art effectively and profitably.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Topics will include building an action plan, creating a brand story, rocking their portfolio, multiplying revenue streams, pricing for profit, selling art online effectively, building a strong support team, squashing resistance, sales strategies, and much more. All sessions are interactive, allowing artists to work together and engage conference leaders with their specific business questions.

 

Elizabeth Hulings

 

 

The program will be led by Elizabeth Hulings, CHF director and co-founder; Carolyn Edlund, CHF sales director, and events manager; and Daniel DiGriz, CHF education director. “South Florida has emerged as an important art hub,” says Hulings. “We are thrilled to be delivering tangible business skills and training in this exciting market.” Edlund, CHF sales director, and events manager; and Daniel DiGriz, CHF education director. “South Florida has emerged as an important art hub,” says Hulings. 

 

Carolyn Edlund

 

 

The event fee is $395, with CHF is offering an extra early-bird price of $295, until November 15, and an early-bird price of $345 until January 1, 2019, when the regular price of $395 starts. Tickets are available here. In addition to conference admission, ticket holders will receive one year of “Colleague”-level access to CHF’s Business Accelerator Portal, a comprehensive online learning resource for working artists.
