 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.

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.”

Sarah LaPierre

 

Thick paint is a prime focus in the collection of work created by artist Sarah LaPierre. Palette knives and heavy bodied acrylic paints provide the full textures and vibrant colors that are characteristics of her style. Sarah gains her inspiration from the beautiful sceneries throughout her home state of Florida, with special focus skyward. Her late father, artist Joseph LaPierre remains the strongest influence in her creative ventures. Sarah’s artwork can be found globally in the homes of her many patrons, brightening the walls of professional offices and businesses, as well as locally through gallery events and showcases at fine arts festivals throughout south Florida.

Gerald “Jerry” Goldstein-The Man Who Changed the Course of Art Supply Sales and Encouraged Philanthropy

 The Rickie Report shares a glimpse into the life of Gerald “Jerry” Goldstein, the Founder of Jerry’s Artarama who recently died. “Jerry” turned difficult life situations into better ones and then shared his vision with the world. He will be missed by family, friends and aspiring artists.

In Loving Memory of

Gerald ”Jerry” Goldstein

1929-2015: Founder of Jerry’s Artarama

 

JerryGoldsteinb0422b312ef5f6bb8066e95a81a5ca3f

The Pioneer of Discount Art Materials

 

Family members tell us, “As a small boy, Jerry, took any job he could in order to contribute to the family. He delivered newspapers or sold everything from peanuts to beer for the Harry Stevens Company at Yankee stadium. He had little concern for the games he worked at, as he was a lifelong Brooklyn Dodger fan and followed them regularly when they became the LA Dodgers.  He honored his country by serving in the National Guard, between the Second World War and the Korean War”.

 

 

“After marrying Arline, Jerry opened an appliance store in Greenwich, CT. His timing was a bit off, as his competitors in New York, at the time, did not have to charge sales tax. After a long struggle, he closed the store while paying all his creditors. Jerry was a good friend and he made it a point to be honorable and to take his lumps for his losses”. 

 

jerry-profile

“Shortly after closing his appliance business, Jerry landed a job as a manager of a toy store. In the early 60’s, he gave up smoking and started painting. He was shocked that nobody discounted art supplies. He persuaded the owner of the store to begin carrying art supplies and he officially became the very first discounter of art supplies in the world”.

In 1968, Jerry opened his first store in Great Neck, NY.  His philosophy was to impart exceptional service to every customer, no matter how large or small the purchase.  That philosophy is an integral part of the legacy he leaves behind, which his sons, Ira and David, and grandchildren, Michael, Heather and Dara continue.

 

Jerry was always concerned with the welfare of artists and orchestrated many initiatives to help artists sell their work. Jerry’s Artarama continues that commitment.  Education was another of Jerry’s priorities. Through his grandson, Michael, and his Burning Oak Studios, they began offering Free Art Lessons to anyone who wanted to be an artist, used to be an artist or needed inspiration through a free art lesson. Today, through their vision, there are over 2,000 free art lessons online as over 2 million artists take these free lessons annually .

 

 

Jerry was the consummate family man and was close to his family that included his sons, Ira and David, his daughters-in-law Carol and Randy (who he treated as his own daughters), his grandchildren Michael, (Natasha), Shana, (Matt), Dara, (Mike), Heather and Marissa and his great grandchildren Bryce and Gabriel.

 

In his honor, Jerry’s Artarama is setting up the Jerry Goldstein Foundation, which will raise funds for tuition and scholarships to the very talented young artists, to inspire them to follow their dreams. If you would like to be involved in the Foundation please contact Ira Goldstein at 919-878-6782 at extension 113. To make donations please make checks payable to The Maddry Arts Foundation and send to 6104  Maddry Oaks Ct, Raleigh NC 27616. 100% of all monies raised will be given in the form of scholarships.

ART SALONS

 

TUESDAY, MARCH 3RD, 2015  6:30-8:30 pm

“ACTION RE ACTION”

Presented by

Sherryl Muriente and Béju Lejobart

There’s a $10 fee to attend, payable at the door

 

"Port D'Orange" by Beju

“Port D’Orange” by LeJobart

 

 

LeJobart is an artist duet, comprised of husband and wife Béju and Muriente. Individually, they create their own art, Béju as a sculptor and Muriente as a performer. Working together, Béju becomes the maker and Muriente the visionary. In unison, they write and perform short plays that demonstrate the interaction of two individuals within a couple. In large urban settings, their work translates people’s perspectives and future projections into reality, today. Their goal is to facilitate social and physical changes in the city through urban acupuncture projects that serve as a catalyst for the regeneration of dormant social networks and capital exchange.

Muriente tells The Rickie Report, “I am eternally in search for Tohu Bohu, the chaos within the void.”

Aided by her “contagious enthusiasm”, Muriente has embarked in creating collaborative cross-disciplinary live art projects under the lens of Urban Acupuncture. Through the process of grounded theory, she identifies a story or “local knowledge” from which inspiration to create a small-scale intervention serves as a catalyst to transform the larger urban context. These subtle interventions can resonate into a broader impact on the collective subconscious of those living in the city. Muriente’s creativity focuses on happenings, performance art, art installations, and live art in both solo shows and in directing others as a group in collaborative work. As an Instructor in Urban Planning at FAU, she works with students on short-term “Urban Intervention” assignments, which are 1:1 scale installation and performance pieces held outdoors in the urban landscape. As an artist, she likes to reveal and interpret the narrative found in the urban realm.

Béju tells us, “I want to die with a smile on my face.”

 

Béju’s necessity to create is driven by the challenge of the unknown through which he expresses himself. Self-taught, he started mocking his environment by carving wooden “trompe l’oeil”. These finely detailed creations are so deceptive; they are real until you touch them. Beju would knit, melt, bend, and stitch wood, bringing it to life by carving critters. The next phase of his creativity involved considering interactions of shapes of various recycled materials, mainly stainless steel tubes and wooden pallets. This work is grounded in Descartes’ famous “Cogito ergo sum” (I think Therefore I am). Descartes explains that the simple fact of questioning our own existence proves that we do exist. Expanding from this quote, Beju’s modus operandi has become “Cogito, ergo sum, ERGO FACIO” (I think, therefore I am, THEREFORE I ACT). Dwelling on this premise, his sculptures illustrate the intricate and variable scale of involvement of Thought versus Action as they both progress in inseparable unison within us. More recently, Beju has created a much more ludic form of expression “Alley Dudes”. Born in the alley, Alley Dudes were inspired by his fascination for Paleolithic cave art found in his home country, France. Profoundly attached to the origins of human art, these PVC sculptures are a contemporary interpretation of body language through candid line forms. The power of their expression engages the viewer to complete the piece by imagining its details such as facial expressions and hand gestures.

ART SALONS offer stimulating conversations with other artists, in a relaxed setting. As a springboard to each of our explorations, 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. Our discussions 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. They’re also an opportunity to explore the practical side of being an artist, of professional development and the sharing of useful resources.

 

 

Salons are facilitated by Elle Schorr. Schedule of upcoming Art Salons and Videos of past Art Salon Presentations are now available at http://www.elleschorrphotography.com. “Upcoming Art Salons are also listed at http://www.armoryart.org/ArtSalons.
