MEET   THE   ARTIST:

 

 

 

 

“Self Portrait” by Mimi McCallum

 

 

After years of creating visually recognizable imagery Mimi McCallum has taken a new direction!  Her new path is taking her into the world of abstract.  The pieces are painted with cold wax medium and oil paint.  Oil pastels, graphite oil sticks and other medium find their way into the mix.  Mimi’s brushes have been laid aside, as the paint is applied to canvas or cradled board with an assortment of tools: squeezes, spatulas, knives, rollers, printing implements, anything is in the game!

 

“Get Crackin” by Mimi McCallum

 

 

This luscious medium can be layered and layered, carved into and scraped away creating interesting textures and fascinating color blends.  The paintings have a history that is revealed and interwoven into the final image. Her one requirement is that the painting will stand compositionally from any direction, so it may be hung and viewed in personal preference.   Mimi’s paintings are intuitive and spontaneous with no initial plan.  Her “New Directions” take her on the creative journey, and she invites us along with her!

 

 

  “In The Park” by Mimi McCallum

 

 

 

Mimi received her Master of Art Education from Florida International University in Miami, her BA from Montana State in Bozeman MT.  She completed the Florida art certification from FSU in Tampa. Mimi attended Anchorage West High, where her father was an FBI agent.  She is married with two children and two grandchildren.

 

“Untitled” by Mimi McCallum

 

 

Mimi puts her talent to work in her studio in Jensen Beach, FL, and exhibits throughout Florida and the Bahamas.  She tells The Rickie Report, “Through my art I aspire to capture moments in time that relate to memories that touch our hearts. I aspire to create images of objects, places and figures with pleasing shapes and energetic color.”  Mimi’s new work was recently exhibited at Art Synergy 2018.

Yep! It’s that time of year we affectionately call the Dog Days of Summer.The snowbirds are gone, the sun is stronger and we are all looking for relief from the heat. Even dog-tired pooches are looking for a way to cool off.

 

Trot into the gallery in steamy downtown Lake Worth, cool off and unleash some of that hot cash burning a hole in your wallet. You will find art by South Florida artists with such incredible talent that they are sure to get your tail wagging. During the month of August you can sniff out all the fun, doggy-inspired art – paintings, sculpture, pottery, etc. – we have in the gallery.

 

 

 

 

To add more bark to our bite (well, more like a snap), we are partnering with another local Lake Worth business, Paws on the Avenue. They’ll be sponsoring pet adoptions at their store (525 Lake Avenue), courtesy of Palm Beach Animal Care and Control, from 6 to 9 pm on August 17 and you can find tons of dog-related items adorning their shelves. There will be added extras at both the gallery and their shop (treats, discounts, etc.) so it is worth a stroll down the block for all the goodies.

 

During the reception  you can lap up a cool drink, get a tasty treat and howl (or bow-wow) at the moon when you see the amazing talent curled up in our gallery. We’ll even have fresh water for the canines (thank you, Paws on the Avenue) outside of both businesses. So don’t just lay down and roll over to beat the heat. Jump up, fetch your partner – or master or best friend or whatever pet name you use – and run with the big dogs to Artisans on the Ave at 630 Lake Avenue in downtown Lake Worth.

 

 

 

 

 

When you give a handmade piece of art to friends and loved ones created by local artists, you are also giving a gift to your community.  Artisans on the Ave boasts three showrooms with an amazing selection of exquisite art created by local artists. Your invited opening night for an evening of fun, the opportunity to meet the artists and to help support your community.

Connections are also relevant between these two disciplines as both are three-dimensional. Although the technical approach to developing work in Ceramics and Jewelry/Metalsmithing is different, they connect with the same design language, tackle similar concepts, and share concerns regarding surface, scale, and functionality.

Yury Lobo Exhibits New Work At Art On Park Gallery, Artists Of Palm Beach County Offer Free Classes, Workshops, Poetry Events

Art on Park Gallery, home of  Artists of Palm Beach County, presents new artworks by Yury Lobo.  He was raised in a small rural town in Russia, where the signs “No Trespassing” hung on every door. By pure chance, at the age of 12, Yury and his mother attended the first American Exhibition in Moscow.  He was particularly struck by the painting, “Cathedral” by American abstract expressionist, Jackson Pollock. That day changed the trajectory of his life forever! Pushing boundaries, Yury found freedom in the United States, being fully opened to new heights of artistic expression. The Rickie Report shares details of his newest exhibit at Art on Park Gallery in Lake Park.  Meet the artist on Friday, August 24th at a free, opening reception.  We also list classes, free workshops and other events available at Art On Park Gallery.

“Exhausted” by Yury Lobo

 

 

Since his early childhood, Yury Slobodenuk has been fascinated with the world of wild colors and the art of collage. However, he never considered becoming a professional artist partly due to the lack of encouragement from his parents and partly due to the general disapproval of this “degenerate art” by the Soviet authorities. What stands out in his memory is a visit to the first American National Exhibition with his mother in July, 1959, featuring among others, Jackson Pollock’s “Cathedral”. Yury was shocked and amazed at the same time. He tells The Rickie Report, “Most visitors considered it a joke..in bad taste. But the impact on my subconscious at the age of 12 was life changing. That is why my interests centered later on with more avant-garde artists. I appreciate Van Gogh, Chagall, Kandinsky, Malevich, Picasso, Matisse, Miro, Brague, Warhol, Rothko, Klimt, Shiele, Modigliani and of course, Pollock.”

 

“Venus of Auschwitz” by Yury Lobo

 

Yury created a few paintings for close friends and family, trusting his inner instincts. Back then, in the USSR he didn’t have the courage to paint and share his passion for abstract expressionism and collage publicly. Keeping his painting mostly to himself, he pursued a career that was more economically sound. He received a Masters degree in German and English, studied the history of art and worked as a licensed multilingual guide at the majors art museums in the former USSR. He became a journalist, interpreter, German teacher, TV script writer.

 

“Beatles Undivided” by Yury Lobo

 

 

 

Having fled the USSR in 1991 for political reasons, Yury first established himself in Miami and pursued his journalism career, working for several Russian-American newspapers. Later, he started one of his own, but sold it in 2007 and moved to West Palm Beach, where he continues his career as a German teacher and now a contemporary artist. The freedom of expression in America has motivated and inspired Yury to fulfill the dream of his youth – sharing his creative side publicly. His artistic name, “Lobo” is a shortened form of his long Ukrainian last name, “Slobodenyuk”, which translates to ” a free man”. “Lobo” means “wolf”, the symbol of the tireless will, yearning for freedom.

 

 

Yury tells The Rickie Report, ” My fellow countryman, Kasimir Malevich once said, ‘Comrades, arise, free yourselves from the tyranny of objects!’ In this sense, I, like him, consider myself an abstract artist and a revolutionary. My battle cry is ‘Stop copying the world! Create a new one!’ Whoever is afraid of bright colors is afraid of life, which I am not”. Furthermore, Yuri confesses, ” I know it sounds nuts, but I consider myself a kind of modern reincarnation of the late Jackson Pollock who, in his own words was a “cowboy” painter. Like him, I’m painting “from the hip”, creating huge abstract compositions within minutes, using brusque wild strokes of bold colors. Some of my colleagues (part joking, part serious) are dubbing me “Jack The Whipper” for whipping that canvas with paint instead of dripping it as Jack The Dripper (Jackson Pollock) did”.

“Night in Lisbon” by Yury Lobo

 

 

 

Yury goes on to explain, “In the art of collage, I represent a completely different point of view. My slightly distorted collages are pretty close to reality and filled with hidden ironies and sometimes tragic messages. Being a history buff, I can’t help but act as the mocking bird, laughing at the human inability to learn from history…which of course sees that such ignorance is doomed to repeat itself. Every collage is a “time capsule” with a message to future generations. A true artist is about the inner energy which he or she tunnels to the public through the art. If there is no reaction at the receiving end, then the energy was either poor or lost in artistic translation”.
