Photography by Faten Safieddine

 

 

 

Internationally renown artist Faten Safieddine will show her short film “La Chrysalide” and talk about her work. This lecture is free and open to the public. In a dreamlike style, this film shows the struggle of women to extricate themselves from the yoke of the cultural and social conditioning and achieve freedom and fullness.

 

 

 

 

Born in Lebanon, Ms. Safieddine lives and works in Marrakesh and Paris. She was educated at the Sorbonne and the Université d’Abidjan and has shown her work throughout the Middle East, France and Canada.

 

Her photographic work explores the themes of the shadows, reflections and transparencies and has been the subject of several international exhibitions.  In addition to working as a photographer and film maker, Ms Safieddine is a journalist, art critic and writer focusing on culture and history. In 1988 the Metropolitan Museum of Art commissioned her to create a documentary on the restoration of the Minbar in the Grand Mosque of Koutoubia. The documentary received the Image d’Or prize in France.

"Tie Fighter" by Nickie and Freddy Hennevelt

“Tie Fighter” by Nickie and Freddy Hennevelt

Hennevelt’s story goes back to a non physical world as they met online in a virtual world of Second Life. Discovering they had the same love of photography and art, they fell in love with each other. While never meeting in person, the two began an art gallery in the virtual world of Second Life with their photography of NWSPictures.
"Epus" by Freddy Hennevelt

“Epus” by Freddy Hennevelt

As Second Life became Real life for them and then opening a Gallery in the real world, their many talents as artist have unfolded to the public. Not only are they photographers but painters and sculptors from 2-D to 3-D. Freddy and Nickie also served as ArtSynergy Co-founders and District Leaders, bringing artists and artisans of Palm Beach County together during Art Palm Beach to showcase local artistic talent.
"X Wing" by Nickie Hennevelt
