Bruce Helander presenting: Chihuly “An Artist Collects”
Lecture with Q&A

Saturday, February 17
2 to 3 pm

A special event hosted in The Hilton Theater at CCE

Free to the Public!

 

 

 

Dale Chihuly (b. 1941), one of the most inno­vative and iconic figures in contemporary art, is also an avid collector of everything from ceramic dogs to inkwells, vintage Christmas orna­ments, dollhouse furniture, plastic radios—you name it, Chihuly collects it. These everyday objects reflect the same playful, colorful aesthetic that can be seen in Dale Chihuly’s sculptures and installations.

Fully illustrated, Chihuly: An Artist Collects includes an essay by Chihuly’s longtime friend, artist Bruce Helander, who considers why people collect and explores the collections of artists such as Damien Hirst, Peter Blake, Andy Warhol, Pablo Picasso—and of course, Dale Chihuly.

City Link magazine called Bruce Helander “Arguably the most recognized and successful collage artist in the country…” and Kenworth Moffett, the former director of the Museum of Art, Fort Lauderdale, said in Gold Coast magazine that “If there was a Pulitzer Prize for collage, Helander would surely win it.” Helander has a master’s degree in painting from the prestigious Rhode Island School of Design, where he later became the Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs of the college. He is a former White House fellow of the National Endowment for the Arts and has won the South Florida Cultural Consortium fellowship for professional achievement in the visual arts.

Helander’s work is in over fifty museum collections, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, Brooklyn Museum, Smithsonian, Art Institute of Chicago, Los Angeles County Museum of Art, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Whitney Museum of American Art and Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) in Los Angeles. The artist and his work has been the subject of 100 reviews and articles in numerous publications, including Art in America, ARTnews, and The Washington Post.   (brucehelander.com)

Hubert Phipps in Studio

 

An American and British citizen, was born in Virginia in 1957. He attended the Art Students League in New York, the Deerfield Academy in Massachusetts, and the San Francisco Art Institute. In the 1980’s he was a professional automobile race driver. In 2005, he built an art studio in Northern Virginia.  Phipps’ artistry is found in permanent collections including: Coral Spring Museum of Art, Tufts University Gallery, Colorado Springs Museum of Art, and Fortin Conde de Mirasol, Vieques, Puerto Rico.  The artist uses many media, including charcoal drawings, sculpture, metal, and mixed media to express his creativty.

 

“Quantum Universe” by Hubert Phipps

 

 

 

Phipps shares the following about his creative process: “I like things that are different. That is what fascinates me about abstract art; the mystery of it. For the most part I think I know what I am looking at as I go about my daily routine, and that is reassuring. Especially when I am out navigating the byways and the skyways. Yet I yearn to discover new worlds, otherworldly type worlds that are lurking in the deeper recesses of the mind. I glimpse these worlds from time to time. It may come in the middle of the night, a vision, unidentifiable, yet lovely shapes appear and I don’t have a clue what they are. What is so tantalizing to me is the endless possibilities of what they can be and I feel compelled to flesh them out and capture them on paper, on canvas, or as a 3D object.

To me, the most powerful art is that which connects within me before I even start or analyze it through thought. It is not anything I can understand or describe by thinking but something that when I look at it I am filled with awe and wonderment. This is what I experience when I stand in the presence of the great works of art that have come before.

Creating art is my opportunity to experience the realm of the abstract mind in a very inmate way. From a practical standpoint the challenge is in transforming that vision into physical form. This is what goes on in the studio. With the strokes that I change and adjust constantly until it gives me that mysterious quality that I am looking for. The sculpture usually starts with a sketch but goes through its own metamorphosis necessary in converting the 2D drawing to a 3D object. During this process I strive to create beauty, balance and other aesthetic elements but somehow the work always takes on a life of its own. It just seems to happen despite the endless struggles I experience through the creative process.

In the end I am an observer as much as anything else.”

Rickie says, “the beads ‘speak to me’ and I often have no preconceived design until I start working with a focal component, look at all of my beads and then begin. There are times when I will take  things apart and start over again because the final product has to feel right”. Locally, her jewelry sold previously at the Norton Museum, Gallery Five, and Howard Alan Events, and at Shoenique in Longmeadow, MA.

Ceramic Tiles With Original Artwork by Tammy Frand

Tammy Frand is originally from Long Island, New York. She resides in South Florida with her husband. Tammy has been an exhibited artist in and around Palm Beach County and has been showcased for her unique blend of materials. Tammy uses a ceramic tile coaster and/or trivet as an alternative to flat stock prints of her work creating a more functional use of art. Single and/or multiple tiles are framed in wood collected from local to Florida lobster traps. She also uses materials such as aluminum, wood and acrylic. Tammy shares, “As an artist, I aim to create pieces that appeal to a wide variety of audiences. I use digital imagery to generate work in a multitude of colors, sizes and mediums. I work to create art that inspires people. My work is constantly evolving with new and fresh ideas”.    great4gifts@aol.com   www.tammysgreat4gifts.com

Detail of artwork by Xavier Cortada

 

Xavier Cortada (Miami, Florida): Thought provoking and powerful, Cortada’s bold and brilliant use of color emphasizes climate change, extinctions, and his participatory art projects have involved citizens all over the world.

 

Sarah Crooks Detail of Artwork

 

Sarah Crooks (Jacksonville, Florida): As an eco-feminist, Sarah Crooks creates multi-disciplinary installations that blend environmental science with expressive art.

 

Detail of “From here” by Mary GrandPre

 

Mary GrandPre (Sarasota, Florida): Illustrator of the American editions of the Hary Potter Novels, GrandPre’s fine art features the intuitive application of texture and color that balance abstraction and realism to create a new world, one that suggests the familiar, but leaves the door open.

 

“Judith Submerged” by Cheryl Maeder

 

Cheryl Maeder (West Palm Beach, Florida): Maeder’s fusion of unexpected perspectives and vivid colors create a dreamy tranquility in and around the water. The ethereal hazes in her exotic work leaves the viewer with a gentle lasting sense of wonder.

 

Detail of artwork by Margarett Ross Tolbert

 

 

Margaret Ross Tolbert (Gainesville, Florida): The sensuous experience of Florida’s freshwater springs is translated through Margaret Tolbert and the large scale paintings she uses a mop to create. Her work quickens the imagination and inspires stewardship for these sparkling gems that are disappearing as a result of population growth.
