Erica Howat “Woven Vessel”

 

 

 

Erica Howat began taking classes and workshops in 2008 to learn fiber art techniques after ending her 30-year restaurant career. Howat started her studio residency at the Annex so she could have a space to experiment with design and technique with a focus of showing her work. Drawn to organic fiber, Howat expresses her attraction to texture and form through tapestry weaving, knotting, and basket making. Materials such as yarn, paper, twine, leather, ribbon, reed and natural flora, rocks, and pods are combined into the pieces. Erica said, “Inspiration from the form, texture, and wildness of certain materials brings about a creative flow to make a piece that emphasizes the unique, natural beauty that grows around us and which may otherwise be taken for granted.”

Sandra Kuba “Les Soeurs”

 

 

 

Sandra Kuba is a fiber and clay artist. She studies clay sculpture, hand building, and fiber art at the Armory Art Center and has traveled extensively to workshops to learn felting techniques. Sandra said, “I love how wool fibers are magically transformed, experimenting with a variety of raw wools and silks, and hand-felting by layering and building with unexpected materials.”

Digging Into What The Resource Depot Has To Offer: Start Turning Waste Into Wonder!

The Resource Depot is a treasure trove for crafters, educators, artists and anyone who is trying to create! This non-profit organization takes the importance of recycling to a higher level, offering supplies, classes, workshops and volunteer opportunities. Membership to Resource Depot is open to anyone in the community. Of course, teachers continue to shop here, as well as artists, families, home school parents  and other community groups.  The Rickie Report shares an interview with Caren Hackmen and Jennifer O’Brien of the Resource Depot located in West Palm Beach, FL. We hope you will put this on your list of places to see – we know you will return often! Crafters and artists interested in the 3rd round of the Guerilla A.R.T. (All Reusable Trash) Challenge at the Kelsey Theatre (adjacent to The Brewhouse Gallery) in Lake Park on Saturday, June 4th from 5-8pm read the details here.

Oh, The Creations!

 

CH: What is Resource Depot and how was it started?

Resource Depot is a nonprofit creative reuse center that has been serving the Palm Beach County community for more than 16 years. In 1999, several influential partners and collaborators in the community joined together to form Resource Depot. Some of those organizations are still involved today; Children’s Services Council, Solid Waste Authority, United Way of Palm Beach County, the School District of PBC, Florida Power and Light and SunFest.

 

JO:

We started as an educational and environmental initiative to reduce the amount of waste that was going into the landfill by diverting materials being disposed of that were still reusable. These donated materials from businesses and individuals were collected by Resource Depot and distributed to the educational community, specifically to help stretch the budgets of nonprofit organizations and teachers.

 

 

 

Resource Depot has stayed with that mission. However, since moving to a new, larger location in 2013, in West Palm Beach, the organization has not only expanded its physical footprint, but also expanded our programs and services. Now that we are more centrally located in the county we do more than just provide materials. We provide DIY resources and ideas for projects, host field trips and workshops for students and families as well as show artwork of local “junk artists” in our gallery.

 

 

 

Many people don’t realize that membership to Resource Depot is open to anyone in the community. Of course, teachers continue to shop here, as well as artists, families, home school moms and other community groups.

CH: I attended an unusual event called “Signal House.” Can you describe it and tell me how that project was conceived?

JO:

The Signal House was a grant program made possible through the Cultural Council of Palm Beach County to serve as a way for us to activate a portion of unutilized outdoor space on our property as an interactive art installation. The grant provided funds for Resource Depot to secure Alex Branch, a visiting artist from Brooklyn, NY, who had created a similar installation in NY.

 

 

 

 

We were really attracted to the project because of its aesthetics and its collaborative nature. We had connected with Sarah Knouse, an art teacher at the Oxbridge Academy, who introduced us to Alex and her site-specific installations – and Signal House truly is a site-specific art installation. It is located in our outdoor “back yard”, which is adjacent to the railroad tracks. Rather than fight the noise, Alex chose to work with it. She created opportunities for visitors to have rhythm and music making experiences within the space. Signal House is just the first step in our plans to enhance the outdoor space to offer more opportunities for the community to gather for art workshops, music and even to view films on the building’s white wall.

 

 

This project is serving as a catalyst for us to create more and more space for events and unique programming. We have opportunities for the public “to see, to do and to make.”–whether someone wants to get materials here, learn something new or see what others are creating…there is something for everyone!

CH: What are some of the upcoming events?

JO:

Tyler Whitesides, a “junk” musician and author of the Janitor Series, visited Signal House Event. Tyler is a percussionist in his group, Jammin’ Janitors, who create music by “playing” janitorial equipment such as spray bottles, trash cans, and buckets. We continue to plan other community events in the Signal House space until the installation commences on June 4.

 

 

 

In addition to Signal House, we are gearing up for another exciting summer of Junk Camp at Resource Depot for kids entering grades K-5. At this year’s 2016 Junk Camp, children will spend the day exploring the possibilities within all the discarded materials in the world around them, while learning new ways of transforming everyday objects into extraordinary works of art, developing their imaginations, problem solving skills, and love for the environment in a fun, hands-on manner unique to Resource Depot!

Guerilla A.R.T. (All Reusable Trash) Challenge

 

 

 

Also, we are currently recruiting crafters and artists for our 3rd round of the Guerilla A.R.T. (All Reusable Trash) Challenge at the Kelsey Theatre (adjacent to The Brewhouse Gallery) in Lake Park on Saturday, June 4th from 5-8pm. The Guerilla A.R.T. Challenge is an on-the-spot crafting challenge consisting of 4 teams who take on 3 quick challenges to compete for the title of “Extreme Guerilla A.R.Tist”.
In each round, contestants will channel their inner “MacGyvers”, out-crafting each other with Resource Depot’s repurposed materials and their own wits, creativity, skills, and secret weapons! Three celebrity judges will rate projects on artistic merit, technique, and utility, but bribing is *encouraged* — expect that to upend the scored results and lead to much hilarity.

CH: How do you go about accepting contributions?

JO:

We love contributions and are always looking for teaching materials, arts & craft supplies, and other cool materials with lots of possibilities! We cannot accept anything that that is broken, unsafe or unclean. Donations can be dropped off anytime we are open (See Website for Hours www.resourcedepot.net). We also have a pick-up service for larger business donations.

CH: How would an individual or an organization go shopping at Resource Depot?

JO:

 

Anybody can come off the street and get a one day bin pass to fill up a recyclable tote bin for $5.00. If you become a member, you are given a larger tote bin to “shop” and you may have unlimited visits throughout the year, as well as placing items on a wish list. Some of our customers have placed items such as theater props, a sewing machine, projector, or large quantities of items. Our inventory of materials changes daily (even hourly) as donations come in, so visit often as you will discover new treasures each time your are here! Currently we have a great deal of fabric, file folders and binders. We also have matte board and frames, loads of plastic containers, poster board and other items that artists can use on a rather regular basis.

 

 

 

 

CH: What is the most important thing for people to know about Resource Depot?

JO:

We are a one-of-kind nonprofit in this community. We enjoy being a pay-it-forward kind of organization, where we are extending the life of objects that will not go into a landfill, extending peoples budgets, and opening their minds, while at the same time contributing to sustainability and environmental health of our local community.  I am also available to speak to groups and organizations!

The State Of Art After “Season”

The Rickie Report has been writing articles about artists, art shows, art exhibits and contests for seven days a week, usually twice a day since September.  Art lovers and Art Patrons, can be reassured that art events continue to happen in Southeast Florida after “season” ends! Classes and exhibits are bountiful. Now is a good moment for Artists to consider the “business” of art.  We may not publish an article every day through the summer, but there are still events on our interactive Calendar of Events that you won’t want to miss.  

 

 

 

“Season” is over….

Artists keep on creating.  

Galleries still exhibit.

Arts organizations continue to program.  

Museums remain open.

There is less traffic.

Classes To Learn Art Techniques are being taught .

 It is easier to get a reservation for dinner.

Art and Handmade Fine Crafts Are Still Available!

And the Calls For Entries To Artists for next “season” are just beginning!

A Word To Art Lovers and Art Patrons:

Stop by galleries and art exhibits in “off season”.  

They’ll be less crowded with visitors – and you will have a chance to linger!  

This is a terrific time to hone your art skills, learn a new technique or make a creative play date with friends!

 

 

A Few Words To Artists:

 

 

NOW is a good time for artists who have been scurrying to meet too many overlapping deadlines for the past six months to organize themselves!  

 

Business Cards

 

 

  1. Are your business cards up to date?  
  2. Is it time to revisit the wording, font size or photos on them?
  3. Do you have enough cards to get you through the next 12 months?  NO ONE wants to run out in the middle of their busy time…Do it now!
  4. Personally, I like being able to make a note on someone’s business card, so shiny paper or too many words/photos prevent that from happening….

 

 

Artwork

 

The hardest part of coming back home to your studio after an exhibit or show is putting everything away and staying organized for the next one.  

 

  1. Check your files to make sure they are up to date
  2. Mark off pieces you have sold from your inventory ( this makes paying taxes easier for next year, too)
  3. Are you missing pieces?  Now is a good time to play detective and found out where the missing pieces are.  
  4. Most exhibits have rules about artwork that is left after pick up dates.  Check on their status before your hard work is sold without you getting a commission.
  5. Bringing artwork of any kind to exhibits, shows, and galleries produces wear and tear.
  6. Check your frames for nicks and marks that need to be fixed.
  7. Check your mats and glass to be sure everything is in its proper position and in good condition.
  8. Check your hanging devices.  Avoid being removed from a show because your wire is too loose or unsteady.
  9. Update your inventory lists.

 

 

Take a moment for a mental inventory.  

  1. Are you happy with what you are creating?
  2. Is it time to try a new technique that you just haven’t had time for?
  3. Now is a perfect time to take a short-term class or workshop!
  4. Schedule some networking time with other artists.
  5. Talk about how this “season” has been for you.  Sharing insights can be helpful, if you don’t get into a round of grousing.  If something didn’t “work”, now you have time to reflect on what you can control – how you react and plan differently.
  6. Outline your business goals – yes! if you are selling your artwork, you are in business!

 

 

Buy a 2017 Calendar

( You already have a 2016 Calendar, Right?)

 

  1. Start by marking the dates of all exhibit and show deadlines you are applying to in RED.
  2. NOW: Mark the dates of those acceptance announcements and drop offs in BLUE.
  3. The Rickie Report is interested in sharing your good news!  As soon as you get the acceptance notice, send us an email about the event!  
  4. We are currently booking dates through December, 2017, so don’t hesitate to contact us!
  5. You may not have all of the details, but we can save you a spot in the publication queue.
  6. To get your article published, let us know 3-6 weeks before the Exhibition or Opening Reception.  
  7. Last minute openings are possible, but please do not plan on that, especially during “season”.  
  8. Giving us  6 weeks advance notice in “season” gives you more opportunities to choose a timely date for your publication.
  9. An article includes:  Who (you/art organization), What (Type of Event), When ( Exact dates of exhibit and specific dates and time of Receptions, including Hours of Operation), Where (Exact street address, contact name and phone number to ask more questions), Why ( if this is a fundraiser or for a charity, we will happily highlight the organization and include their website and social media addresses. Also: 6 jpegs, artist statement, brief bio, website address, social media addresses and anything else you want our readers to know about your artwork and creative process.
  10. It is FREE to subscribe to The Rickie Report.  We will bill you for articles.  There is no word maximum. Call for current rates.
  11. Invest in your art business and take a monthly ad. With 3 rotations of jpegs ( change them out at no charge monthly), you bring more readers (art lovers and art patrons, gallerists, museum personnel, show directors world wide) to your website.  Your ad is seen with every article we publish. Call for current rates.

 

Not Sure Where To Go From Here?

 

  1. Rickie Leiter and Ilene Adams lead “Art Marketing Seminars” throughout Palm Beach County and are willing to travel north or south.
  2. Our seminars are 2 sessions, one week apart
  3. Our “graduates” have a high rate of new acceptances to exhibits, shows and awards, plus SALES.
  4. We are happy to book these seminars with an arts organization or gallery.
  5. Rickie Leiter is available to consult on an hourly basis. Refine your particular marketing tools, including pricing and networking on an individual basis.

 

 

Happy creating, viewing, buying and sharing!

ManonSander.jpg

 

Since childhood, Manon has never lost her sense of wonder to nature’s beauty.  She pays attention to details of her surroundings, making it easy for her to find inspiration where ever she goes. Creating art to this day never feels like a pastime but like a necessity. From the previous influences of the impressionism in her early career, in 2006, her passion to paint plein air and studio paint in oil was ignited.

 

ManonSanderReadytogoout

“Ready To Go Out” by Manon Sander

 

 

 

Oils became quickly her favorite medium, allowing her to have an ongoing conversation with her subject. Under the watch of distinguished and renowned artists, Manon studied how to make a painting that combines rich texture and vivid color while capturing the expression of her subject and the impression it left on her.

 

ManonSanderTheViolin67327_orig

“The Violin” by Manon Sander

 

In addition to painting en plein air, Manon often picks random objects like items found in a tool box or Oreo cookies and a glass of milk for a still life set-up. To Manon it doesn’t matter so much what she paints, since she is mostly interested in the effect the light has on an object. Capturing the light is what drives Manon to make a painting.

 

ManonSanderComfort Zone

“Comfort Zone” by Manon Sander

 

 

 

 

 

Manon puts down her impressions in thick juicy oil paint, applied with gusto and bold brushstrokes: the sunlight that creates lavender shadows on the white clothing of people walking by the water’s edge deep in conversation; surfers and paddle boarders catching an aquamarine wave; boats at rest and on a journey; sea creatures and birds that call Florida their home, are among the countless things that get her so excited that she can’t wait to get out her paints and easel to capture them on canvas. It is happiness and love of life Manon aims to share with the viewer in paintings that reflect the color, light and joy that she is surrounded by and is ever so grateful for.

A J Brown, 2nd Generation, Carries On The Florida Highwaymen Legacy

A J Brown, 2nd Generation carries on the Florida Highwaymen legacy. Beginning in the 1950’s, a group of black artists painted Florida, the picturesque paradise that it was. “ Highwaymen”, a name given later in the late 90’s, were fitting for the men doing just that – selling their art along the side of major highways. People, who saw them along Florida’s highways, still remember the young entrepreneurs and enjoy sharing their memories. A J Brown, a renown Second Generation Highwaymen,  shares a detailed history of the Highwaymen and introduces her iconic artwork in this Rickie Report article.

 

 

 

A J   BROWN  

2nd Generation Highwaymen

 

 

 

 

AJ Brown tells us, “Harold Newton and Alfred Hair started a tradition of recruiting mostly friends and a few relatives, as they taught each other to paint; watching and learning from each other; then took to US Highway 1 to sell their recent productions, most times together, sometimes alone, sometimes in competition. Hair was the only painter mentored by prominent white artist, A E Backus.  Florida scenes came from the trunks of their cars while the paintings were still wet dripping with oils. Who sells wet art? Signatures scratched in with nails? The Highwaymen did! Using tree trunks as easels, Upson board for canvas, a knife or finger as a brush, crown molding for frames, 2×4’s and plywood as the assembly line. Makeshift materials served well, a means of getting by. They had to paint fast during segregated times of the Deep South as a matter of survival. They were searching for an escape, a way out living a hard life working orange groves, packing houses, and tomato fields”.

“Primitive Poinciana” by A J Brown

 

 

 

Their use of color on top of more colors, mixing and matching was eye catching to locals and tourists, who bought their art, returned to their homes, transporting what was not yet history to far away countries and unknown parts of the world. Twenty five men and one female of the first Original group emerged from painters to artists. Each  worked the highways which played a significant role to the development of the movement which brought about multiple changes in the history of black cultural and America. The young artists sold their paintings door to door for $15.00 – $35.00.

“Stormy Palms” by A J Brown

 

 

 

The Original Generation of Highwaymen Artists began in Fort Pierce.  These African American painters finally gained the recognition they deserved, as 26 of them were inducted into the Florida Artist Hall of Fame in 2004. The Original movement led to The 2nd Generation Historic movement, as a selected few African Americans were mentored by an Original, Johnny Lee Daniels. He painted for over four decades and dedicated his life to teaching and helping so many. Daniels was the “only Original investing years of mentoring protégés as one close family”: Jimmy and Johnny Stovall; Kelvin Hair, A J Brown and Richard Edwards. This distinct Generation is collective of blood relatives and a few close friends. As one group, the 2nd Gen produces their original hand painted raw essence of nature, passed down from their predecessors. The group’s serene landscapes speak across generations.

 

 

 

“Daniels owned two Highwaymen Art Galleries in Fort Pierce, Florida; made Johnny and Kelvin his business partners in his first gallery and A J his business partner. This well-respected, self-taught entrepreneur was gifted with impeccable talent and known for reflecting his personal love for God’s nature and wildlife in his paintings. Never realizing, he bridged an important historic connection from the Originals to the 2nd Generation.  Salsa painted orange skies, pink clouds, red trees and water ways were some of our subjects”, AJ reminisces.

“Picking’ Oranges” by A J Brown

 

 

 

 

A J Brown shares, “Help us preserve the importance of America’s educational art history for future generations to embrace…The Originals supported and encouraged us, because our generation, our history, our lives matter! The magic remains in the beautiful historic landscapes of our generation…The 2nd Generation goals honors leaders Newton, Hair and twenty four pioneers by preserving America; painting Florida’s historical landscapes while keeping our history accurate, as it is passed on. Highwaymen Art is a magical nostalgic representation of a time lost, a distinctive brand worthy of preserving. Both generations are Grand enough for the White House”!

 

 

 

Born in Virginia and raised by a single mother and Seminole Indian grandmother in northern FL, A J Brown’s family were migrant fruit and vegetable pickers, from Tallahassee, FL. She tells us, “ Life offered hardships of living in camps traveling from highway to highway…during elementary years, attending Means Court Elementary in Fort Pierce, and over ten different schools, and fifteen addresses, I had no permanent home to call my own, a “Highwaymen” in every sense of the word. Growing up during the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960’s, in the Deep South, I was among the first students to end segregation… before day break, early each morning I woke to take three buses out of my neighborhood across town to desegregate one white school in another town in 1970”.

Brown is a former community service work member helping scores of kids in need and is considered one of the best of the Second Generation. “Images of the vividly colored red Poinciana and purple Jacaranda trees along the southern coastal bayous of Florida are trademarks of my paintings. Taught to me by James Gibson, who said to me; “keep the Poincianas a secret”, and like a Highwaymen family recipe, I replied, “yes”.

 

 

 

 

AJBrownIMG_4718

AJ Brown’s Family Legacy of Serving Their Country 

 

 

Highwaymen history lives on as President Obama and the First Lady added two of my paintings to their collection. During a military meet-and-greet, thanking soldiers and their families, in December, 2014, A J Brown was honored to present her painting to the First Family, President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama at Marine Corps Base Kaneohe Bay in Hawaii. She describes it as a “once in a lifetime experience! It was impressive and exciting” ! This was especially poignant because A J is a member of a longstanding family of veterans.

“Docks by Poinciana Palms” by A J Brown

 

 

 

 

Brown often speaks to people who say, they love their Highwaymen piece and are happy they bought it and meets those who regret they didn’t. “I live Highwaymen Art, I love Highwaymen Art because it has no rules; It’s kinda like the Wild Wild West, when there were no laws”, says Brown. Brown speaks from experience as she recalls growing up as an active part of the Civil Rights Movement as a time of inequality, ” for me as female, it still exists. Growing up during segregated times, night time didn’t catch you out or across the tracks in neighborhoods; beaten, arrested or worse would be your fate. Tradition among the Highwaymen has long been The Originals and the 2nd Gen. I am 2nd Generation. I strive for freedom of speech; promote respecting each other and asking that others respect us, equality for each member; unity for the Highwaymen; we are a group; we are also individuals trying to earn a living”.

 

 

 

AJBrownIMG_4449

 

Hall of Fame Original Florida Highwaymen Artist Johnny Lee Daniels painted 40 years when his life ended May 26, 2009. Daniels mentored The next 2nd Generation Historic group of five. A J Brown was authorized to construct his grave-site monument at Pine Grove Cemetery in Fort Pierce, Florida. 1000 block avenue L section 2-N.

 

 

 

“In the 1950’s Highwaymen paintings captured the raw mystique of Florida: Swaying Palms, Royal Poincianas, backcountry wet marshes and woodlands, with moonlit skies and waterscapes. Discover this nostalgic art brand. A traditional part of America’s history is an investment collected by thousands since the 50’s. Future generations may share the same experiences as the generation before them. Collect the art of all the Generations”!

 

 

Relaying more history, AJ says, “In May, 2009 the Highwaymen established the first historical 501c3 to open a museum, electing the first President MaryAnn Carroll. I was honored to be  officially appointed and authorized to perform the duties of the Secretary. The group was Florida Highwaymen Artist and History Center, Inc. During meetings the Highwaymen acknowledged and agreed on blood and non-blood artists to continue their traditions. Artists painting before 2009 and the establishments of both 501c3’s were included. The 2nd Generation wishes to pass it on and acknowledge their 3rd & 4th Gen, including Jalisa R Broughton, known as Salsa, age ten”. A collection of her paintings is archived by A J Brown, her grandmother, dating back to 2009.

“The Florida we grew up in is the Florida they painted and now we paint. Each generation holds an important specific role for their era and is of great relevance to the other. Distinctive expressions of the Deep South were painted by this unlikely group of African Americans.  I persevere to exist.. to eat from my art. I am female, African American and one person, in America and in this group. I am grassroots. I strive to bring about change and awareness so others see my true representation. Our paintings, our history, our Florida, through our eyes; worthy of significant recognitions for our hard work to open doors for extraordinary earnings that would sustain our livelihoods and honors our place in time; in history, so both generations can finally enjoy the fruits of our labor. Both generations are recognized, valued for our art; honored for our history; our endurance, and unity, crossing barriers of all times”, AJ states.
