Call For Entries: “The ARTNADO Village – The Best Of All Worlds” On February 11 & 12, 2017

Artistic Synergy Inc. will be offering an expanded and more robust version of ARTNADO at the Expo Center of the South Florida Fairgrounds.  “The ARTNADO Village – The Best of All Worlds” will take place on February 11 & 12, 2017.  Locally known as “season”, when 40% of the wealth of America is in residence and a large population of Canadian “snowbirds” are in their winter retreats, ARTNADO will be offering a total of $2,500.00 in prize money.  The Rickie Report shares the details about the expanded show’s different venues, including indoor and outdoor spaces.

One of the innovative concepts of ARTNADO this year will be the “Private Gallery”, which will allow artists, who have not been able to reach out to patrons at art fairs, the opportunity to do so. (These are private sales and as such will not be eligible for the prize money). In keeping with Artistic Synergy’s philosophy of helping artists, any artist who submits work to the Private Gallery and then subsequently sells that work prior to the show (which, of course, is the goal) will be allowed to submit an alternate piece for judging without any additional entry fee.

 

Artnado2017Image00023
All applications and fees will be handled through ZAPP, a national interface between artists and promoters, which is free for artists to join. Each artist submitting an entry for the Private Gallery will also be required to email Artistic Synergy an artist statement as well as a description of each piece. This will be required, so that their Docents may represent you as best as they may. 

 

 

Additionally the ARTNADO Village will be comprised of the following:

The Venues

50,000 square feet indoors and 10,000 outdoors

The Private Gallery –

A small curated enclosed Gallery showcasing 8 to 12 works of art by artists who cannot or do not do art shows.

The Grand Salon –

The massive indoor space reserved for Fine Art.

Avenue of the Arts –

The outdoor portico leading to the concourse buildings. Ideal for large sculptures, outdoor designs, kinetic pieces and living art.

The Concourse Buildings –

This is where the journey through the diversity of American arts begins. Within these walls, completely separate from the Fine Arts building and offered for the first time, patrons may explore the intricacies of: the Human Form, the Art of the Tattoo (the most unforgiving canvas), Fantasy Art, Exotic Art, Pinups, Dark Art, and whatever else the American mind is currently creating.


In addition to the traditional 10 x10 space they offer 10×20 and a 20×20 gallery space in the Grand Salon only

– air conditioning

-24 hour security

-prior day load-in

– gated secured vender parking

– maintained indoor restrooms

– better illumination of your art (no tents or tent tops, just pro panels or, however, else you want to set up your “gallery”

-available electricity for you to illuminate your work properly

If you have any questions

Please call Jack Busa at 561-557-8741

From Jack Busa, Chief Creative Executive

 



“We will list the categories that most fairs use but are not limiting the number. This process sometimes allows for very good artists to not be accepted because a category is full and other media, with possibly less interesting work, is still being promoted. Given that ARTNADO is inside and electricity is available, there is the opportunity for under showcased art in digital or kinetics to be shown. Given the genesis of the fair by artists and patrons, the key consideration will be the work and the creative process. There is a difference between artists who are creative, those who are artistic and those who are both. While we need to have and will have balance, we will also must try not to “lock out” deserving artists such as yourself”.

 

 

“We do not require white tents for a homogeneous look, after all, you are not all the same. There are not just parallel rows of artists. The show is laid out in a grid with small conclaves of artists surround by walkways. This optimizes corners and end-caps, and allows patrons to have a gestalt of your work”.

 

 

“You can no longer be just an artist, you need to be an artist/curator and entrepreneur. Your assigned space is yours to design as you want to represent you and your work. The most successful artists understand that for less than the price of a one time quarter page ad in a local newspaper they can create a 3D ad of their work. They have incorporated the tools necessary to develop a client base and future commission work. They have taken advantage of art/entrepreneurship courses and are marketing themselves. This show, unlike almost any other, created for individual artists, is designed for you to do that.”

A Word To Artists, Arts Organizations And Show Promoters From The Rickie Report

Every article The Rickie Report publishes is packed with information.  Sometimes, we announce an art event that holds interest for art patrons and artists, a Call For Art to a juried show or exhibit, or an overview of an artist’s work and classes being offered in the community.  On Friday, May 20th we published an article about the Fort Lauderdale Design and Remodeling Show.  In today’s “tutorial”, we take a closer look at how artists, arts organizations and show promoters can use this article to find new opportunities.

What We learned from:

 

 

Jen Walls

In her submission application, artist Jen Walls (who recently moved to Broward from Charlotte, NC) stated: “As a new resident of Broward County, I am thrilled to find a vibrant, active art community filled with a wide variety of venues and events. The arts here are a fantastic example of what other parts of the country could accomplish with the type of widespread support you see here in South Florida.”

Jen is a newcomer to the area and went right into the fray!  We like her moxie!  Jen is the type of person we want to associate with…she sees opportunities in new situations! Her whimsical art strikes a chord!

Booth is an arts journalist and blogs weekly in support of a cure of Aids and HIV, using art as a means to create awareness. This is Muhammad’s second time participating in “At Home with Art.” Muhammad’s art reflects her dedication to capturing Florida’s natural environment.

· “Delirium” by Miami artists, Aida Tejada, Josepo and Sandra Garcia-Pardo shows the consequences of obsessive experimentations on their art when looking for accurate definitions of their emotions and dreams, as well as the role of art and its commitment to society. Tejada teaches experimental photography at her studio; Josepo incorporates reclaimed materials, from his work in the construction business, and gives them new life.  Sandra Garcia-Pardo is the 2011 recipient of the Miami-Dade Community and Tourist Development Council Grants Program.

 

 

Invite Aida to teach a workshop!

 

Ask Josepo if he offers tours of his studio…

· “The Nature of Women” explores the world outside cities and towns: the kingdoms of animals and plants, the sunsets, mountains and vistas that inspire us as viewed, specifically through the eyes of women. Through Phoenix Marks’ photography and Jen Walls mixed-media work, they challenge the viewer to question: “What does our view of the wild say about our own human nature?” Marks serves as President of the National League of American Pen Women (Fort Lauderdale Branch) and Vice President of the Broward Art Guild; Walls has taught art in North Carolina and will participate this summer in the Artist in Residence program at the Olive Stack Gallery in Ireland.

· “Nature” is an exhibit displaying two artists’ love and perspective on the world we live. Brett Aiton having extensive training with animals, shows his love and respect for the creatures that keep humanity alive in his colorful oil paintings. Cynthia Bebak Inklebarger is an experienced mixed-media artist that paints nature from an abstract lens. Her style ranges from finite detail to colorful representations of the environment. Both of their devotion to the outside is evident in their differing illustrations. Aiton’s admiration of wildlife began in his native Indiana and studies in Veterinary Medicine. He has also written a series of teenage fiction books. Inklebarger has taught art and served as a docent and researcher for a non-profit art institution in Miami.

 

Does your organization want to engage teens?  Animal lovers?

Brett is a great prospect!

Will he offer a workshop?  Call….

 

 

 

How can Cynthia’s abstract perspective draw in new learners?  The exploration of Mars is a hot topic!  What can she add to your classes?

· “Spectrums of Color” by Tatiana Cast, Terry Arroyo Mulrooney and Carlos Gonzalez, showcases the vision of three artists regarding colors, shapes and light. Each artist with a unique style and perspective, demonstrates the great diversity that exists in the visual arts world. Cast is an art consultant and curator; Mulrooney is involved with the non-profit organization M.U.J.E.R. Florida and has provided families with paintings that replicate portrait photos that she took of children of families seeking support services from M.U.J.E.R.; Many of Gonzalez’ paintings are inspired by South Florida’s vibrant, musical influences.

 

 

Oh, the places Tatiana, Terry and Carlos will take you as you explore color, shape and light!

Make an appointment with Tatiana – she is an art consultant and curator!  How can you work together?  Email first, then follow-up…

Terry would love to share her experiences with M.U.J.E.R. – and perhaps MOVE you beyond your inspiration to DOING what you have dreamed of!

Carlos captures the musical mood with his paintings.  Invite him to a jazz brunch and ask him to demo!  If you are a non-profit, ask if hell donate a % of sales to your group!

 

 

 

 

FOR MORE INFORMATION:

A full schedule of events that includes: Seminars by DIY Network’s Sara Bendrick of “I Hate My Yard” and Jason Cameron of “Man Caves” and “Desperate Landscapes”; consultations with South Florida Interior Designers at four room vignettes designed exclusively for the Show; as well as cooking demonstrations at the Culinary Experience Stage can be found at www.homeshows.net.

Meet these Interior Designers!  Get their business cards.  Send an email with some jpegs of your work.  Make an appointment to follow up.  They want to have fresh looks and art available for their clients….it could be YOUR ARTWORK!

 

FINAL WORDS:

 

Yes, you may bring your business cards to this event, but remember that these exhibitors are at this event to network and sell their work.  

Please don’t overwhelm them with details.  A quick introduction, taking their business card and a follow up email is the least intrusive way to go!

I look forward to hearing from you!

As a result, she has raised over $10,000 for the sanctuary.

Support for Educators

 

We encourage entries from elementary, middle and high school classes and offer discounted rates and administrative support to educators who enter a body of work from their students. Please contact Lindsey@art4apes.com for details.

 

 

For each class of students entering we will offer a symbolic adoption of one of the resident apes at the Center for Great Apes. The class may select the ape and they will receive photographs, an adoption certificate, newsletters and updates.
We email a certificate of participation for each entrant which may count towards community service work.
We will also work with interested students to involve them in volunteer projects which will demonstrate their leadership skills and commitment to making the world a better place. Examples of past student projects include:
• Volunteering as a Gallery Assistant during the ENDANGERED Art & Photography Exhibition in Miami.
• Taking part in the eco-fashion show at the ENDANGERED Art & Photography Exhibition as a model.
• Supervising young models at the ENDANGERED Art & Photography Exhibition fashion show.
• Designing tee shirts related to the theme of ENDANGERED which could be sold to raise money for the Center for Great Apes.
• Fundraising projects.
• Spreading the word by encouraging other Young Artists to take part in the contest.

 

 

Proceeds

 
We have chosen to use all proceeds from the contest and exhibition to support the Center for Great Apes. The Center for Great Apes’ mission is to provide a permanent sanctuary for orangutans and chimpanzees who have been rescued or retired from the entertainment industry, from research, or who are no longer wanted as pets. The Center provides care with dignity in a safe, healthy, and enriching environment for great apes in need of lifetime care. Please visit their website to learn more www.CenterForGreatApes.org.

 

 

ALL donations, including contest entry fees, go directly to support the Center. We fund our events either through commercial sponsorship or through our own donations.

Old School Square is the center of arts & entertainment in downtown Delray Beach. Serving for over 25 years as the community’s gathering place, the historic campus includes the intimate Crest Theatre (in the restored 1925 Delray High School building) the Cornell Art Museum (in the 1913 Delray Elementary building), and the Fieldhouse (c. 1925). The Pavilion, which opened in 2002, hosts outdoor concerts and festivals. The Creative Arts School (located on the second floor of the Crest Theatre) offers art, photography, writing and performance classes. Old School Square also serves as a venue for community, corporate, private and media events. For information on all programs and services, call 561-243-7922 or visit OldSchoolSquare.org.
