In celebration of Earth Day (April 22), Artisans on the Ave in downtown Lake Worth is featuring two artists who are totally in sync with our lovely planet!

 

“Connected” by Tracy Rosof-Petersen

 

 

Tracy Rosof-Petersen (EarthArtistsClayStudio.com), who is as warm as she is talented, has a passion to create pieces that celebrate our humanness, have emotional substance and utilize sustainable materials. Her new clay and sculpted tile “Connected” series features ornamentation that intertwines with the human form. Be it a vase, a vessel, a platter, this series speaks to the human relationships with each other and with our natural surroundings. Her work is continually evolving and she often mixes a sense of humor with her considerable skill in many of her creations. As with all of her pieces, they are sturdy, durable and truly nice to look at!

 

 

Wood carved Owl by Herb Brofsky

 

 

Herb Brofsky spent his career practicing dentistry, but always had a love of the arts. A collector of paintings, clocks and antiques, upon retirement, he moved to Cape Cod, MA. Continually observing the activity at the bird feeders by his kitchen window, his growing fascination with their movements led him to a new venture. Throughout his newfound bird carving career, he has studied under a variety of carvers. Using mostly bass and tupelo woods, his pieces explode with color from the acrylic paint and various washes applied to his little gems. He has so enjoyed carving birds, that he’s migrated (no pun intended) to other animals – horses, deer, fish and ducks. He is having so much fun – and winning blue ribbons at competitions – that Herb is one happy retiree.

 

Artisans on the Ave is located at 630 Lake Avenue in downtown Lake Worth.

Lucinda Linderman “Self Portrait”

 

Lucinda Linderman, a native to Chattanooga, Tennessee, is a recognized environmental artist and environmental art curator living and working in Miami, Florida. She explains: “As consumers, we purchase, use, and throw things away, never thinking of the items again. Looking at this linear production, I collect industrial and post consumer packaging, which becomes the building blocks of my sculptures.

She shares, “This material, disregarded by many, has its own history of travel from factory to store, being created to be thrown away. I highlight the inherent value, leaving traces of what was, transforming the material into something new, playful, through my hands adding value to these discarded materials”.

Lucinda was an artist- in-residence at the CANDO Arts Co-op in Miami Beach from 2009 to 2011, where she was the director of Sol Gallery during 2011.

Caren Hackman’s “4 Tips For Completing Projects On Schedule” Are Helpful For Everyone (Not Only Artists)

Award winning fine artist, graphic designer and author, Caren Hackman, shares Four Tips for Completing Projects on Schedule.  The Rickie Report shares these with our readers, knowing that this advice pertains to everyone, not only artists!

 

 

Caren  Hackman:

My 4 tips for completing projects on schedule

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I like to complete client projects on time or in advance of the deadline. I avoid working on last-minute projects, but, if it is within my power to help out a client I will work on a project with a short timeline. However, I do try to avoid the frantic round-the-clock-all-nighter project mode of work. I don’t think any of us do our best work when we are emotional or sleep deprived. Following are some steps I take to help me complete projects on schedule. Although I’ve described the tasks as being part of a graphic design marketing or visual communications project, the steps can apply to nearly any project.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

ONE: Review the entire scope of the project with the client.

TWO: Develop a timeline by breaking the project into phases and setting a deadline for each.

A. In addition to setting a deadline when all work must be complete by me, I set reasonable deadlines for the client to review each phase of the work I turn into them. I include their review time and turnarounds for project modifications in the timeline.

B. If certain tasks are dependent upon the work of others, I take into account this possible extra time.

C. I determine two phases during the project development where I compare project components’ compatibility with the final output requirements. This might involve phone calls to outside vendors such as a printer; a production company for trade show or; an online source where I might want to check placement, browser compatibility and loading time. Checking for compatibility, running a test or trial or submitting a rough concept to those involved in the projects’ production will eliminate last minute unpleasant revelations.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

THREE:  Allow ample time for proofreading. Ask someone who has not yet reviewed the project to look at it for substance and clarity. Individuals with an insiders’ familiarity with the project might consider a piece of information common knowledge and thus, overlook explanations that others will require. Occasionally, during multiple revisions of a project, tiny errors can occur such as an incorrect URL or missing phone number. Having an outsider, or member of the target market group review the communications piece will make the end product more effective.

 

FOUR:  Be vigilant about adhering to the timeline. Check often to be certain that all involved are keeping up with the planned goals and their individual timelines for each phase. Reevaluate and troubleshoot, when needed.

Do you have tips for completing projects on schedule without entering the panic mode near the finish line? If so, please comment.
