 Budding Artist Winners:

 

The Boca Raton Fine Art Show™ is sponsored by Hot Works, LLC, a professionally produced fine art fair with a national standing and reputation. The Institute for the Arts & Education, Inc. is the associated 501(c)3 non-profit organization which focuses on visual arts, diversity, fostering art education among young students, and community enrichment.

 

 

 

 

Patty Narozny, Show Director tells us, “As part of our commitment to bring art education into the community, the Budding Artist Competition for students in grades 6-12 or ages 9-19 is integrated into the art fair. Sponsored by Institute for the Arts & Education, the competition gives budding, young artists a golden opportunity to begin learning the rules of being part of a professional art show and exhibition. It exposed young artists to the opportunity of creating his or her art for a living – doing something he/she loves to do, and, most importantly, how to do it. The young artists were encouraged to speak with the professional artists in the show, to ask them questions about participating in art shows as a career”.

 

 

 

This year’s Budding Artist contest included 40 applications from 11 area schools. There were $250 in cash awards provided to four young winners, along with a beautiful, colorful two-foot-long ribbon ( the same, largest-size-available gorgeous ribbon that the Professional Artist award winners receive). Painter, Zaki Knapen was the Budding Artist judge; criteria for judging art was based on technique/execution and originality, which is similar to the criteria for the judging of the professional artist awards. Zaki explained why he chose the winners, and provided professional consultation to the Budding Artists who inquired.

 

 

The four winners were as follows:

Mike Chamberlain – Metal Art
http://www.chamberlinmetalart.com/

 

 

HAEHobeSoundmikechamberlain1

Metal Artwork by Mike Chamberlain

 

 

Mike shares with The Rickie Report, “These aluminum panels are part of an ongoing experiment that started about ten years ago at my sign shop, Vital Signs, in Verona, Wisconsin. I use a lot of aluminum on signs I build at the shop. I started scratching and grinding the aluminum to help the aluminum elements on the sign stand out and be more visible. With all of the scrap aluminum I had laying around the shop, I started thinking that I could make some wall art out of the aluminum.

 

HAEHobeSoundmikechamberlain2

Metal Artwork by Mike Chamberlain

 

 

 

By scratching the surface of the aluminum the light reflects off the surface from different angles creating amazing holographic effects of depth and space on a two dimensional object. These pieces are scratched with an array of different tools I use around the shop. The colored pieces are painted with a translucent tint that I mix into an automotive clear coat. These colors can be intermixed to create millions of different colors. Once dried, they are color-sanded and buffed to a high gloss. These pieces need light to bring out their depth and holographic appearance; with that, they begin to change and start to look different if the light is adjusted from bright to dull.  When looking at these pieces from different angles and with different light intensity, their appearance will begin to change right before the viewer’s eyes”.

 

 

 

 

Produced by Howard Alan Events and hosted by the Hobe Sound Chamber of Commerce this popular event will feature 150 local and national artists as well as the finest crafters in the country with a wide array of artistic media. This show will have two separate sections appealing to art enthusiasts and collectors looking to add to their collections as well as festival patrons shopping for affordable crafts and unique gift items. The Fine Arts portion of the event will be located on the North side of the street starting at Bridge Road and Dixie Highway, followed by the crafts section and green market.

 

Monika Fairchild – Jewelry

HAEHobeSoundmonikafairchild1

Pendant by Monika Fairchild

 

 

Monika Shares, “I am the sole creator of each one of my jewelry designs. The process usually begins by laying out many colorful stones and rare fossils. I move them around until the shapes; colors and textures take on a life of their own, becoming much more as a union than separate elements. The next step is sketching my design idea on paper, adding graceful lines that support the relationship of all pieces. Then each stone gets its own custom bezel made, either out of sterling silver or 14 kt gold bezel wire, which I cut and solder closed and attach onto a flat piece of sterling silver sheet. The thickness of the base varies according to the purpose of the piece of jewelry. For example: earrings are made of lighter gauge, and pendants heavier”.

 

 

HAEHobeSOundmonikafairchild2

Pendant by Monika Fairchild

 

 

 

 

“I cut shapes out of silver and gold using a hand saw and bend or texture them, mostly with small hand tools like pliers and hammers. Once all elements are attached together through the process of soldering, the job of polishing begins. It is a long, labor intensive and unpleasant process, and it is what differentiates quality work. I use a buffing machine, holding the piece in my hands and pressing against the extremely fast spinning cloth wheel, feeding it with polishing compound every few seconds. Even though I wear a face mask and finger guards and have an exhaust fan, I am still covered with black dirt at the end of the polishing process. The last step is to carefully set the stones in place using a bezel pusher and burnisher. My favorite part of jewelry making process is to see how great my creation looks on the person that has fallen in love with it and the joy it brings to them”.

 

 

 

Brenda Flynn – Paper/Mixed Media

HAEHobeSOundbrendaflynn1

Mosaic by Brenda Flynn

 

 

Brenda explains, “I love to travel, and travel has always been a big inspiration for me personally and professionally. Bohemian in nature, a reincarnated gypsy from days gone by. If I am physically moving – in a car, plane, boat, train – I’m totally happy. I get cabin fever amazingly fast. A day-trip or an art show usually alleviates the feeling of being in one place too long. I am convinced sea water courses through my veins. I pursue my art as a full-time exhibiting artist doing both fine craft and fine art shows, showing both traditional tile and paper mosaics. I also have my work in a few galleries up and down the East Coast”.

 

 

HAEHobeSoundbrendaflynn2

Mosaic by Brenda Flynn 

 

 

“I continue to write as a contributing columnist and features writer at Sunshine Artist magazine, and have had photographs published in Coastal Living and The Sun magazines. I used to freelance as a travel writer and have a couple of book titles under my belt. Always looking for creative opportunities. I love public art, and have done some tile mosaic projects in Ocala and Cedar Key. Feel free to click on over to www.free-range-van.weebly.com to see both the horse I created for Horse Fever in Ocala, 2011, and the van – which is a continuing labor of love”!

Night Vision and Fluorescent Techniques

by Serafima Sokolov

Serafima Sokolov has developed a unique painting style which she calls “Night Vision”.  Her paintings reflect modern issues such as war, equal rights and theocracy.  Her newest efforts include a series about the Great Depression.

 

Even though her paintings depict struggle, they are actually lessons in survival, not defeat.  They are about the strength of the human condition. With her parents, Serafima immigrated to the United States just prior to the fall of the former Soviet Union. She has seen a different side to life.

 

Graduating from FAU, Serafima successfully developed a career in art, primarily working in oils and acrylics.  She enjoys doing murals which can be seen locally while her artwork has attracted nationwide attention.

About The Faculty:

 

 

ELI CEDRONE began her career in Bermuda at Saatchi & Saatchi Advertising. She teaches workshops nationally and in Bermuda, California and Italy. She has always been influenced by the power of images to express ideas and emotions and believes painting is a process of discovery and decision making where disparate elements pull together until the image is clearly expressed. She works primarily in oils and is drawn to the human form, where figures exist both in representational and painterly worlds. She describes her style as Contemporary Impressionism.

 

 

 

SALLY COOPER has been painting all her life and began actively pursuing her creative talents in the late eighties.  In 1990 she was awarded an annual Art Award from Broward Community College.  In the mid 90’s she moved from detailed representational work and began to seek the abstract.  By 2000 image reference was left behind and her style evolved into explosions of color, markings and movement.  Her work has been included in numerous regional and national competitive exhibitions receiving awards in most.  She is a Signature Member of the National Watercolor Society.  In 2005 her painting “Life Force II” received Honorable Mention in Watercolor Magic Magazine’s national competition.

 

 

 

RALPH PAPA teaches drawing and painting at his Delray studio and at the Creative Arts School. He is a member of the Garrison Art Center, the Delray Art League, Past President of the Artists’ Guild of the Boca Museum and co-founder of Plein Air Painters of Palm Beach. His paintings range from studio works composed of real and imagined themes to figurative, portraits and plein air paintings. His works are in public and private collections in the U.S. and Canada.

 

 

 

BRENDA HOPE ZAPPITELL creates abstract expressionist works born out of intuition and serendipitously influenced by nature and life experiences. Her work is in both private and public collections and she is represented in galleries all over the U.S. She has participated in solo and group exhibitions in NYC, Los Angeles, Santa Fe, and New Orleans as well as in other locations. Zappitell is a contributing writer for Professional Artist Magazine and writes an ongoing blog for their website. She has taught many workshops to artists from all over the country.

Artwork by Amy Broderick

 

 

 

Amy Broderick’s creative practice encompasses studio production, art writing, excellence in teaching, and academic leadership. She uses the processes of drawing and paper construction to explore the methods we humans use to locate ourselves relative to our physical and information environments. Amy teaches her students to do what all scholars (and responsible citizens) do: engage passionately with the world and with their field; devour new knowledge, influences, and inspiration; integrate and own all of these, weaving them into their scholarly selves; and then articulate their knowledge, passions, and questions through sincere, honest, researched, and elegant original works.

 

Amy earned her BA in Studio Art at the College of William and Mary, where she graduated Magna Cum Laude and Phi Beta Kappa. She earned her MFA in Painting at the Hoffberger School of Painting at the Maryland Institute College of Art, where she studied with Grace Hartigan. In 2000, Amy joined the faculty at Florida Atlantic University as Assistant Professor of Art in the Wilkes Honors College. She was the first fine artist on the new college’s faculty.

 

 

Over the course of four years, Amy developed and implemented a fine arts curriculum and concentration within the Honors College’s interdisciplinary liberal arts curriculum. She was then invited to lead the redevelopment of the foundations curriculum in FAU’s School of the Arts, where she earned tenure and now serves as Associate Professor of Drawing and Painting and Foundations Program Coordinator.

 

Amy has won numerous awards for teaching and scholarly activity, including the Award for Excellence and Innovation in Undergraduate Teaching (FAU), Master Teacher Award (FAU), Honors Faculty Fellowship (FAU), Florida Individual Artist Fellowship, and South Florida Cultural Consortium Fellowship for Visual and Media Artists. She was recently awarded an Emerging Arts Administrator Fellowship by the National Council of Arts Administrators (NCAA).

 

 

Amy has exhibited extensively at venues that include Miami Art Museum, Jacksonville Museum of Contemporary Art, Sarratt Gallery at Vanderbilt University, School 33 in Baltimore, and Tomio Koyama Gallery in Tokyo, Japan. She has also published scholarly articles and exhibition reviews in SECAC Review, FATE in Review, and the Palm Beach ArtsPaper.

 

 

Amy serves on the Board of Directors of the Southeast College Art Conference as the board’s Florida representative. She also serves on the Alumni Council of the Maryland Institute College of Art, and she represents Miami and Palm Beach on the council’s Regional Initiatives Committee. Amy lives in Jupiter, Florida with her husband, Mark, and their sons.

Stan Dornfest tells The Rickie Report, ““I have always felt most spiritual when I am physically and emotionally enveloped by a landscape. The mystical state of mind that these inspiring locales transport me to, is what I strive to reflect in my painting. For me, rather than merely documenting topography, painting is more about expressing the spiritual journey that the world of nature transports me to.”

“I prefer to paint in Acrylics because I actually like the quick drying time, the versatility of the mediums and the quick clean up time which fits into my life. I developed and taught a course for design students called:”Art Direction-Expanding Your Options. The course explored different career paths that Design/Art students could take”.

“Afternoon In The Azores” by Stan Dornfest

 

 

“My elementary school teacher summoned my mother to the classroom to explain to her that she felt that I was very talented in Art. She offered to loan me her oil paints over the summer so that I could continue painting. My mother explained to her that she could afford to purchase a set of oil paints for me. Not only did my mother buy the paints, but she researched and found courses for me to take on Saturdays at The Brooklyn Museum Art School and Brooklyn College, which nurtured my life long passion for painting. From an early age, I was always painting. After High School, I was fortunate to get accepted to The Cooper Union Art School. After Cooper, I pursued a long, successful career as an Advertising Creative/Art Director but during that time – I continued to paint. As my advertising career tapered off-my painting endeavors expanded”.

Stan received a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree from Cooper Union. While pursuing his career as a Creative/Art Director in the New York Advertising Industry, he continued to explore his passion for Painting. “In New York, my solo shows include: The Donald Gallery, Dobbs Ferry, New York and Heritage Gallery, Tarrytown, New York. I was a member of the Faculty at Parsons School of Design.  In Florida, my paintings have been shown at The Boca Raton Museum of Art, The Cornell Art Museum, The Coral Springs Center for the Arts, Loxahatchee National Wildlife Center, Lighthouse ArtCenter,  Armory Art Center, Artists Alley, and The Artists Guild Gallery.  I am a Participating Signature Member of the Boca Museum Artists’ Guild .
