BUILDING AN ABSTRACT SERIES: A NEW APPROACH

oldschoolsquare02_oldschoolsquare_cas_zappitell_abstract-series-workshop_web

 

Free your abstraction in an unconventional space! This four-day acrylic workshop offers a premiere opportunity to create an abstract series using our 1925 Fieldhouse (a vintage gym) as your studio! This amazing, inspiring space is perfect for creating work in as large a format as you want, with hands-on intensive assistance. Participants create their own abstract series by learning how to paint three or more paintings a day. We will use acrylic paint and “loosening up” exercises to liberate intuitive creativity. Discussion of color theory, composition and suggestions for creating your own “painting process” will also be provided. There will be daily meditation and demonstrations in the workshops.

 

 

 

UNLOCKING CREATIVITY: AN INTENSIVE DREAM WORKSHOP FOR ARTISTS
with resident artist, Dr. Neal Wiseman
Third Saturday each month, 10:00 am – 4:00 pm | Fee: $165

 

oldschoolsaquare03_oldschoolsquare_cas_wiseman_dreamworkshop_web

 

 

The objective of this six-hour workshop (for all levels) is to learn to turn stress and stagnation into creative excitement and productivity. Our tools are intensive dream work, awareness training, group encounter and psychodrama. Students rediscover feelings of inspiration, energy, and persistence. They learn to feel better about their work and about themselves; they learn to think better and focus more clearly; and they learn to develop the self-discipline they need to help them meet their professional goals.

About The Faculty:

 

 

ELI CEDRONE began her career in Bermuda at Saatchi & Saatchi Advertising. She teaches workshops nationally and in Bermuda, California and Italy. She has always been influenced by the power of images to express ideas and emotions and believes painting is a process of discovery and decision making where disparate elements pull together until the image is clearly expressed. She works primarily in oils and is drawn to the human form, where figures exist both in representational and painterly worlds. She describes her style as Contemporary Impressionism.

 

 

 

SALLY COOPER has been painting all her life and began actively pursuing her creative talents in the late eighties.  In 1990 she was awarded an annual Art Award from Broward Community College.  In the mid 90’s she moved from detailed representational work and began to seek the abstract.  By 2000 image reference was left behind and her style evolved into explosions of color, markings and movement.  Her work has been included in numerous regional and national competitive exhibitions receiving awards in most.  She is a Signature Member of the National Watercolor Society.  In 2005 her painting “Life Force II” received Honorable Mention in Watercolor Magic Magazine’s national competition.

 

 

 

RALPH PAPA teaches drawing and painting at his Delray studio and at the Creative Arts School. He is a member of the Garrison Art Center, the Delray Art League, Past President of the Artists’ Guild of the Boca Museum and co-founder of Plein Air Painters of Palm Beach. His paintings range from studio works composed of real and imagined themes to figurative, portraits and plein air paintings. His works are in public and private collections in the U.S. and Canada.

 

 

 

BRENDA HOPE ZAPPITELL creates abstract expressionist works born out of intuition and serendipitously influenced by nature and life experiences. Her work is in both private and public collections and she is represented in galleries all over the U.S. She has participated in solo and group exhibitions in NYC, Los Angeles, Santa Fe, and New Orleans as well as in other locations. Zappitell is a contributing writer for Professional Artist Magazine and writes an ongoing blog for their website. She has taught many workshops to artists from all over the country.

Cornell Art Museum Goes “Wild” With New Exhibition Opening January 14th

Old School Square announces a powerful, new exhibit at the Cornell Art Museum. “Wild” is a group show of contemporary artwork by 12 internationally recognized artists who are inspired by nature and use their talents to show the beauty and wonder of the natural world. Artists were invited because of their respect for nature, their fascination with animals and their attention to the beauty of this natural world. Artwork featured in this exhibition has been shown in galleries and museums worldwide. The Rickie Report shares the details and some images here and urges you to see this exhibit! “Wild” also features paintings by more than 20 Plein Air Palm Beach artists, who are inspired by and have captured the beauty of South Florida’s lush landscapes.  Make note of Special Events taking place in conjunction with “Wild”.

“The idea for a show centered on the natural world came to me a while ago after I discovered Alex Beard’s work. I thought it was amazing that one man could honestly make a difference in the world through use of his artwork,” says curator, Melanie Johanson. “I find it inspiring to think that if everyone used their talents to support a cause, great or small, what a huge difference could be made.” A portion of proceeds from the sale of artwork in the show goes to The Watering Hole Foundation http://www.wateringholefoundation.org), created by Alex Beard in support of conservation efforts. The foundation is dedicated to saving endangered wildlife and preserving the earth’s remaining wilderness.

About the “WILD” Artists:

 

 

CornellArtMuseum_WILD_Ronald-Shaw

Pottery by Ronald Shaw

 

 

Diane Arrieta (aka Birds are nice)

Diane Arrieta works as the art/science outreach coordinator at Jupiter library at Florida Atlantic University. Her latest body of work deals with the relationships humans have with the environment. Often much of her work deals with social issues relating to women and children.

 

 

 

Alex Beard

New Orleans-based Alex Beard is a painter and illustrator, adventurer, best-selling author, world traveler, animal conservationist and now filmmaker. He has emerged as one of his generations most creative, prolific and accomplished artists.

 

 

Ellen Jewett

Ellen was born in Markham Ontario. She took to shaping three dimensional forms naturally at a young age.  In 2007 Ellen completed her post-secondary honors degree in Anthropology and Fine Art at McMaster University.  By the time she presented her thesis, Ellen’s academic and artistic interests in the biological where intrinsically interwoven. Her sculptures are being featured in public and private collections worldwide.

 

 

 

Elizabeth Jordan

From the Artist Statement: “…Beauty is subjective, and perfection in nature is frequently surprising. My work isn’t beautiful in a traditional sense. It has its own unique beauty, which may seem dark, but it isn’t without humor. My connection to nature, the earth, the beauty and grimness of the world are some of the topics of my studio conversations. In nature, there is no sentimentality about life and death; life is temporal and fragile. My work exists in the same place, in that I attempt to create objects that are both vulnerable and powerful. “

 

 

 

 

CornellArtMuseum_WILD_Ernesto-Kunde

Mixed media by Ernesto Kunde

 

Ernesto Kunde

Miami has long been a complex, tangled landscape which continues to intrigue and beguile over four generations of visual artists. For Brazilian-born Ernesto Kunde, transforming the mangroves, wild birds, and crackled Deco architecture into a physically viable format is a simple process. He displays a keen eye for interpreting his tropical surroundings maintaining a colloquial tone: the vital elements of Miami as a natural and urban biosphere are omnipresent for Kunde, appearing on cuts of canvas, found wood and corrugated aluminum. He infuses his work with a Pop Art sensibility, choosing highly saturated, contrasting tones with completely opaque shadow.

 

 

Caitlin McCormack

From the Artist Statement: “The act of stiffening intricately crocheted cotton string with glue produces material that is structurally similar to delicate bone tissue. The string utilized in this process can be viewed as the basic cellular unit of fabrication, and by implementing media and practices inherited from my relatives, both living and deceased, I aim to generate emblems of my diminishing bloodline, embodied by each organism’s skeletal remains. The material out of which my work is composed acts as an alchemical conduit between the garment and the clothesline; it acknowledges the latter as a symbol of the ancestry and familiar bonds which have greatly informed my work…”

 

 

 

Magnus Sebastian

From the Artist Statement: “I use mannequins in most of my work as they tend to be an idealized expression of the human form. I fill them with innards made of the cast off pieces of technology that we take for granted and discard every day. In so doing I try to show that we are becoming soulless as we rampantly ingest technology – we still look human but have taken on a colder, more mechanized persona…”

 

 

 

Ronald Shaw

Ronald Shaw received his BA from UCF. He relocated to South Florida and began working at Rare Earth Gallery. Ron maintains two distinct bodies of work, a functional soda or wood fire line of pottery and a sculptural line combining multiple clay bodies and firing methods coupled with various living and organic elements.

Jonathan Stein

Jonathan is a conceptual artist from the Bronx whose expertise includes sculpture, painting, installation, photography, and video installation.  His work makes social statements all the while sparkling with hand-placed Swarovski Crystals.  His influences include Andy Warhol, Judith Leiber, and John Waters, and he says of himself, “I am a lover of all things campy and kitsch.”

 

 

Chad Steve

From the Artist Statement: “…My ceramic surfaces are intended to look as though they had been well used and then abandoned. Worn, chipped, and saturated with stains the visual aesthetic of my sculptures have a patina of apparent use that serves to unify the overall aesthetic of a moment captured in time, arriving at a feeling of nostalgia. My work celebrates the questioning of objects and the rediscovering of moments in the past. As an artist I am driven by a desire to evoke meaningful and significant memories, wonder, and curiosity within all my viewers.”

 

 

 

Carlton Scott Sturgill

Brooklyn based Scott Sturgill is best known for his painting, paint chip mosaics, and floral sculptures. From the Artist Statement: “Inspired by the bedroom communities of the Midwest, my work examines the conflict between our need to push our individual sexual boundaries and our desire to appear as ambassadors of a white-picket-fence America… My paintings, sculptures and mosaics use the vernacular of the American heartland to scratch the surface of suburban pretense, exploring the compulsion to veil ourselves behind the facade of a commoditized version of the American Dream.”

 

 

 

Carin Wagner

Carin Wagner is an award-winning South Florida artist, born in Norfolk, Virginia. Wagner works predominately in oil on canvas, with a message of environmental protection at its core. She has exhibited throughout the U.S., including shows at the Sherry French Gallery, the Silvia Wald, Po Kim Gallery in New York, the Lawrence Gallery in Scottsdale, Arizona, the Cultural Council of Palm Beach, and the Lighthouse ArtCenter. Museum shows include the Ft. Lauderdale Museum of Art, the Coral Springs Museum of Art, and the Boca Raton Museum of Art.

 

 

 

 

CornellArtMuseum_Karla-Walter_Juxtapose in Black

“Juxtapose in Black” by Karla Walter, Sculpture

Karla Walter

From the Artist Statement: “As an artist, it is important to recognize a message and seize that moment. Crows are messengers, omens for change. Several personal encounters with crows have compelled me to express my personal creativity through this messenger. This body of work explores the similarities between the social interactions among crows and that of humans. To know the crow is to know ourselves…”

THE ESSENCE OF PHOTOGRAPHY with Russell Levine

For all levels, Wednesday 7:00 p.m. – 9:30 p.m. This class will revitalize your photography practice by exploring your relationship to your subject, your camera, and yourself. Through photo exercises, assignments, and field trips, we will learn to deepen our visual awareness while clarifying our approach, so that image making becomes both more personal and meaningful. This class will provide a unique opportunity to rethink our expectations of what it means to ‘see’. We will work on simplicity and making more powerful photographs, supporting the notion that a photograph is not ‘taken’ but made. Attention will be paid to lighting, composition, depth-of-field and exposure issues, but more importantly, you will practice using this information to make more powerful and meaningful images. Bring a sense of commitment (and sense of humor) and curiosity to class, as well as a few examples of recent work to the first session.
