National Association of Women Artists (NAWA) Invites You To “Crossing Boundaries” Exhibition

The National Association of Women Artists (NAWA) knows a lot about crossing boundaries. As the oldest professional women’s fine arts group in the nation, established in 1889 to empower, support and encourage women artists, breaking down barriers was and remains the name of the game.  “Crossing Boundaries” unites NAWA National and NAWA Florida Chapter with a multi media juried exhibition.  The Free, Public Opening Reception takes place on Friday, December 9th at the Armory Art Center.  The Rickie Report shares the details and some sneak peeks.  In addition to this excellent exhibition, NAWA’s 6” x 6” Scholarship Fundraiser is being held ONLY at the Opening Reception.

Early groundbreakers like Mary Cassatt, Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney and later, Louise Nevelson, Alice Neel and Judy Chicago were just some of the notables that wouldn’t accept exclusion from the male-dominated world of art and art makers. As the first regional chapter in the country, the Florida Chapter is joining forces with the National association in an exciting new juried exhibit at the Armory Art Center, Montgomery Hall, 1700 Park Avenue, in West Palm Beach, December 10th through the 29th. A reception will be held on Friday, December 9, from 6-8 pm, and Awards will be given (First Prize $100, Second Prize $75, Third Prize $50 and two Honorable Mentions $25 each).

By showcasing a number of mediums, including painting, ceramics, sculpture, collage and mixed media pieces, the show will be crossing boundaries in its vision and conceptual approach as well. A number of prominent local artists will be exhibiting their works. Among them are Beth Scher, the president of the Florida Chapter, as well as Carol Staub, Grace Fishenfeld, and Janice Cohen, a past president. An added benefit to the public will be an online exhibit available for viewing after the opening reception. Mark your calendars—this promises to be a memorable arts collaboration.

In addition to this excellent exhibition, NAWA’s 6” x 6” Scholarship Fundraiser is being held only at the Opening Reception on December 9th, 6 – 8 PM. Artist members and art students from the Dreyfoos School of the Arts have created artworks on 6” x 6” canvases, which will go on sale for $50 each. The proceeds will benefit three young women from the 2015 Dreyfoos graduating class with college scholarships.

The Florida Chapter of NAWA, established in 1995, was also comprised of exceptional women of vision. Liana Moonie of Palm Beach, a past president of the National organization and Madeline Weiss, the first president of the Florida Chapter set a high standard. Both groups, National and Florida, share the same vision. And those wishing to become part of the Florida Chapter’s continuing work must first be juried into the National organization headquartered in New York City.

quartet-1-2-96mb

“Quartet” by Judith Rosenberg

 

 

Judith shares, “Painting and the creation of art are a great source of physical and intellectual pleasure.  Since retiring from Judith Jack, Inc., the jewelry design firm my husband, Jack and I founded, I’ve had the luxury of time to devote to a life-long love, the creation of art. Portraying women in all their diversity and drama is one of my inspirations. A merger of my original acrylic paintings and my latest interest – photography, is my newest body of work. My published writings on the subjects of historical fashion and jewelry, and the research necessary to be factual, have inspired me to portray women – bold, daring, playful or conservative – who so creatively present themselves to the world. Literature fashion, museums, architecture and nature have been influences as well”.

 

manhattan-style-3mb

“Manhattan Style” by Judith Rosenberg

 

 

Judith’s  recent interest has led her to incorporate photography into her paintings. “I’ve recently designed a series of “Women of the Flowers.” A sequence of steps is performed to achieve what I hope are distinctive results: I paint in acrylics, photograph the image then using the computer, alter colors, change backgrounds -just keep designing . I work on these paintings until my head and my heart say, “Enough!” They are then printed on an aluminum sheet. This media method offers drama, elegance and quality that sets them apart from any other process – complete, unique and without the need for framing, ready to adorn your home!  There are endless uses for the various mediums and tools that are available for artistic expression. I hope that the observer truly enjoys the marrying of media and the many aspects of beauty I have chosen in creating my art”.

 

 

jackrosenbergthree-martinis-1-4

“Three martinis” by Jack Rosenberg

 

 

 

 

After graduating from Brooklyn College, Jack worked as a microbiologist and then as a medical supply salesman to doctors and hospitals. He tells us, “My growing interest in antique jewelry led me to become, along with my wife, Judith, co-founder and CEO of Judith Jack, Inc., a jewelry design firm with international sales. Together with the design staff, I took pleasure in putting my own ideas into play. After selling the business and retiring, my artistic side flowered. Charcoals, drawing, painting and sculpting became part of my ever-expressing means of creativity. My awareness of shapes, colors, textures and forms in their splendor impelled me to continue to investigate a variety of methods and materials”.

 

 

jackrosenbergenchanting-2-0

“Enchanting” by Jack Rosenberg

 

 

 

 

You can hear the excitement in Jack’s voice as he shares, “Then I discovered photography! I’d found my true love! Looking through a lens helps me see and appreciate the world around me in a new and exciting manner and shuts out everything except what I see in the lens. It’s the perfect medium for me. It permits me to fully and continuously express my artistic vision and share my passion with others.  My fundamental belief is that everything in our physical surroundings can become the subject of a meaningful photograph. I try to capture and express the essence of what I see through my lens. I relish humanizing inanimate objects and creating scenes from unexpected sources.  Every photograph tells a unique story – real or imagined – and, hopefully evokes thought and pleasure in the viewer’s mind.  The photographs here reflect my ongoing labor and explorations, allowing me to share my artistic sensibilities and pleasure with a wider audience. I truly hope they are enjoyed”!
