Zammy Migdal & Gudrun Kemsa of Lausberg Contemporary at Armory Art Center

The Armory Art Center will be hosting an opening reception for Zammy Migdal and Gudrun Kemsa on October 24th.  These distinguished artists work in very different media but share an interest in movement as a metaphor, for the deeper meanings found behind surface and appearance.  In addition, on Wednesday, October 29th, Zammy Migdal will offer an Artist Gallery Talk. The Rickie Report recommends this extraordinary exhibition: “Evocative Juxtapositions Between Two International Artists” and opportunity to meet the artists.

Zammy Migdal Sculpture

Zammy Migdal Sculpture

 

 

 

❖ Zammy Migdal, a native of Tel Aviv, Israel, has created a language in metal that transforms spaces and walls into shapes, colors and shadows. In his work, energy flows to form clarity, definition, and purpose. He shapes metal into forms, but it is the emptiness inside the forms that holds the shadows. While some of his very architectural work is firmly grounded on Earth, other work has its origins in his interest to suspend objects against gravity. Such work is created by the relationships among metal foregrounds, attaching pins, spaces, light and shadows, in which hard metal resembles ribbons that flow and twist in the wind.

 

 

 

Zammy Migdal is also showing large polychrome steel sculptures from

❖ Gudrun Kemsa’s photographic works and Video Installations are depictions of space, time and movement. Her eye is focused on urban space where she documents the course of events in streets and in open public places. Her video installations are designed as large projections for indoor or outdoor spaces. In their actions and timelines, they lead the viewer to experiences of space and time. Since 2002, Kemsa has been producing video works in analogy to human vision, this is done in constant motion. Her indoor video installations at the Armory will range from works done in the Ruhr valley of her native Germany to works produced in China and the US.

Hansen and Steve Horan will be showcasing their works October 18 – November 10th.  The Rickie Report urges everyone to see this exhibit and attend the Art Salon on October 21st.  This is a wonderful opportunity to bring your family and talk about who  lived here before we did.  Explore environmental issues with your children in a different way. The images are real and powerful. Details are here.

Presents a joint exhibition:

Inger E. Hansen, painter

&

Steve Horan, photographer

“Everglades and Yellowstone:

People and Place”

You are Invited to:

Opening Reception

Friday, Oct. 17  from 6-8 pm

1700 Parker Avenue       West Palm Beach, FL 33401

 (561) 832-1776

 

 

The exhibition is free and open to the public

Monday through Friday, 9 a.m.-5 p.m. and Saturday 9 a.m.-2 p.m.

 

 

Steve Horan's "Wrangler"

Steve Horan’s “Wrangler”

 

Artists Inger E. Hansen, a painter, and Steve Horan, a photographer, are exploring the people, environments and histories of two very different national parks in this joint exhibition, “Everglades and Yellowstone: People and Place”.  The Armory Art Center invites everyone to the opening reception on Friday, Oct. 17 from 6-8 p.m. will kick off the exhibit.The artists will also participate in a special presentation, an art salon, on Oct. 21 from 6:30-8:30 p.m. where they will be discussing their work. Admission to the salon is $10, payable at the door.

 

 

 

Horan is a photographer living in Lake Worth who, over the last five years, has been visiting Yellowstone National Park to work on an ambitious photography project. “Environmental portraiture” is how Horan describes his series, “People of Yellowstone”. Yellowstone National Park covers the largest geothermal area in the world. It is a home to geysers, grizzlies, wolves, eagles, elks, and huge herds of wild buffalo.

 

Steve Horan's "Crimes Against Nature"

Steve Horan’s “Crimes Against Nature”

 

 

Horan’s goal is to capture the spirit of the people whose lives and work center in Yellowstone and its surrounding ecosystem. He collaborates with his subjects to photograph them in a setting that immediately tells the story of their connection to Yellowstone’s wilderness.

 

Inger Hansen's "The Strangling Fig Tree"

Inger Hansen’s “The Strangling Fig Tree”

 

 

Hansen is Norwegian and spends part of the winter in West Palm Beach.  She tells us, “My part in this show is art inspired by the Everglades and the Native Americans’ life and history, with focus on the Seminoles. Most of the nature paintings are done on the spot, in Grassy Waters and Riverbend Park,” she says. “The subtitle: ‘The Seminole people today, how does their forefathers’ culture influence their everyday lives?’ captures the essence of the exhibition.  Together with poems and images, the exhibition will function as a story… in a creative play between brushstrokes and the written word.”

Art Salons are an opportunity for stimulating discussions about contemporary art themes, including conceptual, cultural, socio/political, environmental, race and gender focused and aesthetic practices, the materials and techniques used to convey these ideas, and where we fit into the world of contemporary conceptual art. Under the guidance of Elle Schorr, attendees also explore the practical side of being an artist, professional development and share resources.

Painting by Florida Highwaymen

Painting by Florida Highwaymen

 

The Florida Highwaymen, a group of 26 African-Americans, broke convention to paint beautiful iconic landscapes. Originating in the mid 1950’s, an era marked by racism and poverty, these self-taught entrepreneurs mentored each other while they painted on basic materials like Upson board for canvasses, and crown molding for frames. Local galleries shunned their work, so they peddled their art from car trunks along area roadways, hence their name. Their art freed them from work in citrus groves and labor camps, and they created a body of work that has become not only a timeless collection of a natural environment, but a symbol of determination and belief in oneself.*

The surviving Highwaymen, now in their sixties and seventies, are an important chapter in America’s culture and history, indeed, a National Treasure. Their self-determination in the face of adversity remains an important story of perseverance, inspiration and creativity.*

Initially dabbling in her first stained glass class 15 years ago, Melissa has always been “hands on”. While glass mosaics are her first love, polymer clay and substrate construction have also become her specialties. Having traveled to Arcata, CA to work with Laurel Skye and her daughter Marley, Handler developed a love and appreciation for both the artists as well as their unique techniques.
