Abstract by Marge

Abstract by Marge

 

 

Today Margie has made her mark as an Artist to be seen, enjoyed and collected. Her Exhibits include: Art at Palm Beach International Airport, The Armory Art Center in West Palm Beach, and was also selected for the upcoming show “Contempo” at the Lighthouse Art Center in Tequesta, FL.

 

"Party" by Margie Agoston

“Party” by Margie Agoston

 

Margie she said this about her art: “My work comes from my heart. I have always loved creating whether it was painting, jewelry design or ceramics. When I paint I can freely express myself. My canvas is like a two dimensional sculpture. I use color, texture and movement to sculpt emotions.”  Margie Agoston’s hope for the observer is that they will go on their own journey and they will experience what the abstract painting says to them.  Please Margie’s website at http://www.margieagoston.com/

 

 

Renewal Coalition’s mission is to assist wounded service members and their families in their transition from military to civilian life or back to active duty by offering a retreat experience at Florida residences with the intent of providing these families a time to reunite and bond in a relaxed, pleasant, and welcoming environment. We focus on the family sharing time together without the worries of expenses. Lodging, meals, entertainment, ground travel and even the small amenities are the responsibility of Renewal Coalition and NOT the service members and their families. www.renewalcoalition.org.

Art Salons in April Look At “Socio/Eco Science and Art” and “Girl Noticed”, A National Mural Project

Enjoy stimulating conversations with other artists, led by Elle Schorr.  Professional artists from South Florida are invited to present their work, talk about what influenced them, and examine the work of influential artists showing in museums and galleries.  Topics cover the gamut of 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. Explore the practical side of being an artist, of professional development and share useful resources.  Meet Diane Arrieta (aka Birds Are Nice) on April 7th. Lori Pratico and Elizabeth Sanjuan, of Girl Noticed, will present on April 21st.  All Salons meet in the Library of the Armory Art Center. Please note the last Art Salon for this season takes place on Tuesday, May 5. Salons will resume on the first Tuesday of each month, starting on October.

You’ve seen her work at the Boynton Beach Arts District and in Wynwood during Art Basel, at the FAU Library in Jupiter and at The Mordes Collection “Outside the Box”, at the recent Cultural Council of the Palm Beaches “Paws and Claws” and at many other exhibits in south Florida.

GIRL NOTICED

PRESENTED BY

LORI PRATICO AND ELIZABETH SANJUAN

 

 

 

Elizabeth Sanjuan and Lori Pratico

Elizabeth Sanjuan and Lori Pratico

 

Girl Noticed is a nationwide charcoal mural project aimed at bringing attention and awareness to the important role “the female” plays in our society. Hollywood based portrait artist Lori Pratico and photographer Elizabeth Sanjuan will be traveling to 50 states in 3 years to erect a series of detailed charcoal portraits, created as large exterior murals. Each mural will depict a female chosen from the area in which the mural will be painted. The murals will be crafted in charcoal, with the idea that weather conditions will naturally and quickly fade away these images. There is a window of time to “Notice” the artwork that has been created. This represents the message: “when an individual’s talents, intelligence, and character are left unnoticed, they may fade away, disappear, and never be seen or developed into their full potential.” Each individual chosen will be photographed alongside her portrait, and these photos will comprise a book to be published at the completion of the project.

Lori Pratico started her artistic career over 25 years ago, painting commercial billboards in Philadelphia. She then turned to creating her own art, most often portraits, and says: “My artwork is inspired by those who dare to be different. My paintings are often of women with tattoos, or brightly colored hair, but more importantly, women who have chosen to be happy with themselves despite what labels society has placed on them. When painting a portrait, I reach for the inside of a person. I know if I get the inside right, the outside will simply fall into place.”

Now she has decided to return to climbing walls. She explains “Over 25 years later, I’m back to painting walls, but with a different goal: to bring attention to important issues surrounding the demoralization of women, and to recognize the strength, courage, talents and tenacity of females throughout the United States. I’m creating something you have no choice but to notice. The first mural was done in Hollywood, Florida in January 2015. Before my 50th birthday, I will travel 50 states and create at least 50 murals. Art has always been where I have found my voice, and I aim to be heard. In a world where everyone is in a hurry I’m asking you to pause. My portraits challenge you to look closer, look longer and see differently.”

Elizabeth Sanjuan began her travel and photography adventures while at American Airlines, where she worked for 25 years. Now a recognized philanthropist and co-owner of Gallery 2014 in Hollywood, Florida, she has traveled to over 73 countries and plans to see at least 100 by the time she reaches age sixty. She and her husband, Ken Brown, founded the Sanjuan-Brown Hollywood Arts Foundation in 2012, a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting the arts and arts education. World travel is her vehicle and photography is her medium. “My passion is to discover, through travel, the vast mosaic of people, lands and cultures that the world offers; and to record, as faithfully as I can, the incredible panorama of color, pattern and energy that bombards the receptive eye. Travel gives me the opportunity to observe, but I believe the lens intensifies my ability to truly understand. I want to convey the world’s incredible variety and to create an awareness, understanding and respect for humankind through photographic images. I am constantly reminded that even though people live worlds apart, we are truly all the same. Our hopes, dreams, loves and losses are all captured in our faces. The camera provides objective proof of our commonality.”

 ART EVENTS

DICK YOSINOFF

Solo Exhibit

Dick Yosinoff–Photographer or painter?  Why not both?  In his youth in Providence, Rhode Island he entered a city sponsored school drawing contest and was awarded a scholarship to classes at the prestigious Rhode Island School of Design. Dick often pulled off the road to photograph barns or deserted boat houses, shot striking candid portraits of New York City dwellers, and photographed foreign cultures during travels. He utilized his camera eye and skill to capture subjects which he expressed through oil on canvas.  Recently he has experimented with an abstract expressionism painting style and found this style to be refreshingly creative.  You are invited to view a sample collection of both his paintings and photographs.

GUIDELINES:

For the last 6 years we have produced a PEEPS Show at the Clay Glass Metal Stone Gallery that has draw thousands of visitors. Last year over 1,600 visitors voted on their favorite exhibits.   On the first day of the exhibit we have official judges awarding prizes to their top five favorites, First prize is $100. The next four prizes are gift certificates of $50 each, from the PEEPS® company.

 

 

Joyce Brown tells The Rickie Report, “For the last two years, Sid Walesh has won first place. His works have been extraordinary ones that rotate on a pedestal.  Sid has asked that someone challenge him for first place. Please consider answering this challenge by giving Sid some real competition. It is not that the other entries were not extraordinary. I have always been blown away by your creativity. I think it is the extra complexity, for which the judges have awarded 1st place.”

 

  • Open to 2D and 3D Artists in all mediums.
  • A completed application form,and an entry fee of $25.00 must be received by deadline of Tuesday, March 24, 2015 by 3pm.
