PRESENTED BY:  JANE HART

IN THE ARMORY ART CENTER LIBRARY

There’s a $10 fee to attend.
If you’d like to bring some snacks or drinks to share, that would be much appreciated. Feel free to share this announcement with friends.

 

 

 
Jane Hart served as the curator of the Armory Art Center’s recent exhibition, “Champions: Caribbean Artists Breaking Boundaries in South Florida”. Hart has over 35 years of professional experience in the international contemporary art field, active in NYC, L.A., London, South Florida and elsewhere. She has been engaged as a curator, gallerist, publisher of limited edition fine art works and art books, arts writer, and, last but not least, as a working artist.

 

 

 

 

Hart was curator of the 2015 exhibition “100+ Degrees in The Shade: A Survey of South Florida Art”, featuring work by 170 artists in all media, and shown in nine venues throughout Miami-Dade and Broward Counties. An encore presentation related to this project is being highlighted to celebrate the 20 year anniversary of Art Palm Beach at Palm Beach County Convention Center. A 224 page full color, hard cover book by Gean Moreno’s [NAME] Publications was produced to accompany the show, with texts by Erica Ando and Sandra Schulman. Among other awards and accolades, Ms. Hart was named Curator of the Year twice by the New Times.

 

 

 

Working under the under the alias TJ Ahearn, (an anagram of her name), Hart has been a working artist, making collages that have been exhibited and collected internationally. She attended the School of Visual Arts in New York as well as both the University of Miami BFA Program and Miami Dade Fine Arts Program. From 2006 until 2015, she held the position of Curator of Exhibitions at The Art and Culture Center of Hollywood, an acclaimed non-profit institution which focuses on contemporary visual art. During her tenure at the Center, Hart curated over 100 exhibitions, including an attendance record-breaking show with international sensation LEGO® artist Nathan Sawaya, drawing 13,000 visitors in 6 weeks. Hart also created the John L. and James S. Knight Foundation 2x award-winning lecture series “Hot Topics” and numerous other special projects. Her 2015 curated exhibition of Wayne White’s art work won the Center’s first NEA grant for an exhibit.

 

 

Hart was founding Director of Muse [X] Editions, a ground breaking, digitally oriented fine arts publisher, the first of its kind in the U.S.. For several years she oversaw all artist projects, marketing, curation of exhibitions and international sales. Hart is also an independent curator and owner of long-standing venture “lemon sky: projects + editions”, a contemporary art business devoted to working with artists through exhibiting and promoting their work. She has worked with major artists on exhibits, projects, publications and editions, including Doug Aitken, John Baldessari, Wallace Berman (Estate), Uta Barth, Gregory Crewdson, Peter Halley, Alex Katz, Mike Kelley, Kienholz, Charles Long, Christian Marclay, Fabian Marcaccio, Catherine Opie, Diana Thater, and Andrea Zittel, among many others.

 


Most recently, Hart was the lead artist of #NowBeHere#3FL, a participatory photographic event held at the Pérez Art Museum Miami (PAMM). This project has been initiated by Los Angeles-based artist Kim Schoenstadt. #NowBeHere is staged city-to-city, encouraging female-identifying artists to appear en masse in a documentary photo. 305 South Florida artists participated in the photo. In January, 2016, Hart completed 6 curatorial projects, including those at the Armory Art Center and The Box Gallery in West Palm Beach and Design Sublime and Under The Bridge in Miami.

Call for Art From High School Students For The Congressional Art Competition In Washington DC

Every year since 1982, the U.S. House of Representatives has offered talented young artists from across the country the opportunity to showcase their artistic abilities. Submissions from high school students are being accepted until April 28th.  The first place artwork will be displayed in a year-long exhibit in the U.S. Capitol building and the winner will be flown to Washington, D.C. to attend the official art show opening with Members of Congress.  The Rickie Report shares the details.  DEADLINE:  April 28th.   PLEASE SHARE!

 

 

 

 

Each spring, a nation-wide high school arts competition is sponsored by the Members of the U.S. House of Representatives. The Artistic Discovery Contest is an opportunity to recognize and encourage the artistic talent in the nation, as well as in our Congressional District.

The Artistic Discovery Contest is open to all high school students. The winning artwork of your district’s competition will be displayed for one year in the U.S. Capitol. The exhibit in Washington will include the winning artwork from all participating districts from around the country.

The 5th Annual “Endangered” Art4Apes exhibition will take place during Art Basel in Miami. This year’s contest builds on the success of last year’s ENDANGERED Art & Photography Contest which saw a sharp rise in the quality of the entries and subsequent exhibitions in Miami, Florida and Southwell, UK. The quality of the original artwork, photography and wearable artwork in these shows has been “museum quality”.  The Rickie Report shares the details of the Call For Art and Photography and Wearable Art  and some peeks at previous participants.  The Deadline for this prestigious exhibit is October 8, 2017.  Entries are open to Young Artists and Adult Artists.

We are thrilled that the ENDANGERED Contest is attracting artists and photographers of the highest caliber. In recognition of the high standard of entries we are retitling the contest as:

The ENDANGERED Fine Art & Photography Contest.

It is wonderful to see fine artists and fine art photographers focusing on the issues facing endangered/threatened species or habitats. We are grateful that they use their creativity and skill to draw attention to these critical issues. We would like to encourage all fine artists and fine art photographers to enter the contest and we will continue to do our best to publicize their art and the issues that their work highlights.

 

 

This global, juried, online contest aims to focus attention on the plight of endangered /threatened species or habitats. The challenge is to interpret or reflect ENDANGERED through either

  • Celebration of the beauty of endangered/threatened species or habitats
    and/or
  • Illustration of the threats facing endangered/threatened species or habitats.

 

Please note – species do not have to be formally listed as endangered in order to be eligible for this contest as long as an element of threat exists.
