“Collaborations and Mixed Mediums” is Coming! CALLING ALL ARTISTS NOW

 Jonathon Ortiz Smykla and Evelyn Ortiz Smykla of OSGS have a BIG dream. “Collaborations and Mixed Mediums” is a charitable Fine Art Exhibition that will take place at the CCE (Center for Creative Education) building on 24th Street in Northwood Village. The Opening Reception night is March 7th and the exhibit will run the entire month of March. OSGS Gallery is the Host Gallery and Jonathon Ortiz-Smykla is the show’s producer.  The Rickie Report believes that you have to dream BIG in order to succeed, so we are sharing this CALL TO ARTISTS!!!!  Attention Art Patrons: Mark your calendars now for this Spectacular event!

 

 

 

OSGScollaboration1

 

 

TRR:  Why is March 7th Opening Reception such a big deal?

JOS:

The Sponsorships are Big!  From the moment you arrive there will be Valet on hand and a Red Carpet Entry with a step-and-go photo opportunity! At the door there will be a suggested donation for the CCE, but that is small peanuts compared to the offerings ahead… The Entry will flow the attendees directly through the Exhibition, which is the highlight of the evening. I am trying to highlight Collaboration works so I am very interested in Artists working together to show their skills. The other side of the exhibition is Mixed Mediums”.

 

OSGScollaboration2

 

 TRR: What should attendees expect?

JOS:

“I am opening the Art Call to Artists so that I can also represent works to compliment Collaboartion pieces, maybe not necessarily Artist Collaborations but collaborations of mediums. That will also be open to installation work for consideration. To keep the evening lively, Tito’s Handmade Vodka will be on hand with a couple of specialty drinks, along with Table 427 for the culinary treats. C-Keys Recording and Vinyl will be providing the evening’s musical entertainment. Easel Art has graciously donated some materials so there will be Artists present who will be Collaborating, Live”.

 

OSGScollaboration3

 

“This will clearly be the biggest event that is currently lined up for March. So after we’ve all settled down from the Art Fair stretch in South Florida, we can take a moment to celebrate and highlight our Local Talent while helping a charity that teaches and nurtures children’s learning abilities through the Arts. That is reason enough to get excited about this event, it just so happens that I’m providing a social scene to accompany the evening.”

 

 

 

OSGScollaboration4

TRR: How can more people (art lovers, art patrons and      local vendors) get involved?

JOS:

“I’m still reaching out for additional sponsorships to round out the evening but the most recent has been the West Palm Beach CRA and other Northwood area merchants. Interested vendors and artists should contact me now, so they will be included in the massive marketing and publicity campaign preceding this event! “

RESOURCE DEPOT

The featured demonstrator and speaker will be a member of the “Salvage Squad” from Resource Depot in West Palm Beach. Resource Depot is a wonderland of materials that are revived, repurposed and redistributed to those committed to creative exploration through reuse. The Depot collects business discards, samples and scraps that would otherwise go into landfills, thus preserving and protecting the environment. Materials such as foam, plastic, wood and fabric are donated free back to educators, parents children and seniors and other non-profit agencies. This unique business/education partnership helps to solve the lack of materials used by educators by providing donated materials.

Resource Depot is Palm Beach County’s nonprofit center for creative reuse, a place where the community can give stuff, get stuff and make stuff, all utilizing things that would have otherwise found their way into the landfill.  The community is welcome to shop for free reusable project supplies, learn upcycling techniques or purchase the work of local artists in the EcoChic Boutique, bring a class for a field trip, and of course, donate their own surplus for reuse. Donations, which run the gamut from paper of all shapes and sizes, foam, containers, record albums, fabric from sample pieces to bolts, books, binders, and much more, were all donated by local businesses and individuals to be reused instead of wasted.

 

 

Resource Depot bannerimage001

 

Teachers, parents, artists and nonprofits (basically, anyone with a will to create) can join as annual members for unlimited visits or purchase a one-time pass, to choose from a warehouse full of things to incorporate into their next project.

 

Resource Depot Marbling Workshop

Resource Depot Marbling Workshop

 

 

Educating the community on ways they can reuse at home, in the studio or in the classroom is a major component of their mission, and they offer “make and take” workshops, gallery openings, and, with the support of several grants, bring art with an eco-friendly twist to students in Title I schools, aftercare programs and local hospitals, who might not otherwise have the opportunity to create.

APBCDecemberHan's Book

 

 

Han’s poetry book is entitled “Draw You in Mind”.  “Many poems in this book were written in my native language when I was a college student,” states the poet who was born in South Korea and came to the United States in 2000 to study English. “Poetry was my passion and my dream when I was in school. This book contains over 60 poems, which are my footprints. They tell of love and life. I hope you will enjoy them.”

 

 

APBCDecemberJean Hutchison Book

 

Jean wrote and illustrated “Fashion Evolution: or What are the Primates Wearing these Days”. She describes her book “as a tongue in cheek look at what happens when the primate world takes on the characteristics of Homo Sapiens.” Beautifully illustrated with Jean’s oil paintings, “each image has a story written with wry humor that will leave a smile on your face.”

Sherry’s book is a collection of stories about the adventures and misadventures of a boy named Fritz in a 1920’s seaside town inspired by Jupiter, Florida. “Tales of Turtle River” steps back into time and follows Fritz when he carries his pet rooster across town on the handlebars of his bicycle, into the wilderness that surrounds his home, and into the hearts and lives of the people of the town. Her book was illustrated by her husband, Grant Williams, who is a Resident Artist at Art on Park Gallery.

Announcing ART SYNERGY ARTWEEK2015! Art Synergy Announces New Art Districts and Calls to Artists!

 After an amazingly successful inaugural year, Art Synergy is back bigger and better with “ArtWeek 2015″.  Formed in early 2013 in response to the needs of local artists in Palm Beach County, Art Synergy is a countywide movement to unify and promote the diverse culture of our vibrant arts community. Developed from discussions during a think tank with local artists, Rolando Chang Barrero, Craig McInnis and Freddy Hennevelt took the lead and formed an organization to promote art events throughout the county that would coincide with Art Palm Beach.  Through the generosity and support of Lee Ann Lester, the Director of IFAE and Art Palm Beach, Art Synergy will once again have a booth at the ArtPalm Beach 2015 exhibition, January 22 through January 25, 2105. This is an extraordinary opportunity for artists to be in this prestigious show by entering a call to artists. It will be a juried exhibition of exceptional work created and made by professional artists of Palm Beach County. This beautiful showcase is held at the Palm Beach County Convention Center, West Palm Beach, FL and is dedicated to providing a rich visual arts experience for collectors and art enthusiasts from Europe, Asia, and North and South America.  The deadline to apply is December 15th.  The Rickie Report is proud to be part of this event!

The call for artists is open to all residents of Palm Beach County. The deadline to apply is December 15, 2014. Applications are available at Juried Art Services http://www.juriedartservices.com

 

 

 

Developed from discussions during a think tank in 2013 with local artists, Rolando Chang Barrero, Craig McInnis and Freddy Hennevelt took the lead and formed an organization to promote art events throughout the county that would coincide with Art Palm Beach. The thought was that Palm Beach County arts could benefit from the popular art event much like Miami benefitted from Art Basel. Soon it was christened ART SYNERGY and took off running with the support of the many local artists in the county.

 

 

The first year, five art districts participated in various ways, with each district having events on one particular day during the week long Art Palm Beach event. The repose was phenomenal and the momentum in developing the volunteer non=profit organization was ongoing throughout the year with additional countywide meetings with artists, the community and the media.

 

 

Opening night of Art Synergy 2014

Opening night of Art Synergy 2014

 

The organization grew and this year has expanded to seven districts. Once again there will be specific days in for each districts and the participating galleries and artists to be spotlighted. The districts are comprised of artists’ studios, galleries and supporting businesses and restaurants that have come together to promote local art. The seven districts are West Palm Beach, Lake Worth, North County, Northwood, Antiques Row (including Worth Avenue), Boynton Beach and Delray Beach (Artist’s Alley).

 

 

Art Synergy, a non-profit organization, and all of the participating districts are volunteer based and rely on the artists and volunteers to run and manage all of the events. They also depend on sponsorship from local businesses and patrons in order to promote and market the events. Art Synergy is always looking for sponsors and there are many sponsorship opportunities.

Claudia Bloch

 

 

Necklace by Claudia Block

Necklace by Claudia Block

 

 

Claudia Bloch is an American artist known for her beaded jewelry designs. Born and raised in New York City, Claudia’s work reflects the fusion of cultures and people she was surrounded by in the invigorating city environment. Inspired by the work of Louise Nevelson, not just for her installations themselves, but for her process of walking the city streets at night, finding what others had discarded to use in the making of her own vision.

With that in mind, after Claudia began her designs with the goal of women wearing her pieces, she has recently amplified that idea – to a greater vision of building intriguing installations around the jewelry. Viewers can both enjoy wearing the pieces, as well is exploring the power of the material world and its influences over their identity. Claudia resides in South Florida but travels extensively showing her work in private and public venues.

 

 

 

Meryl Lefkovich

 

Meryl is a self-taught artist/maker with a degree in art history. She has had past careers as an art consultant, gallery manager, travel consultant and interior designer, all of which, she believes, contribute to her world view in design and concept.  Her serious art career began in 1993 when she began teaching herself how to paint. She has her paintings in a number of corporate and private collections in the Boston area and around the country.

 

 

 

Meryl Lefkovitz' Bracelet

Meryl Lefkovich’s Bracelet

 

In 2011, Meryl learned how to solder and there was no looking back. Jewelry design and fabrication have become her passion. Her primary influences are flora, fauna and a fascination with Art Nouveau and the Arts and Crafts Movement.

 

Meryl Lefkovich's Bracelet

Meryl Lefkovich’s Bracelet

 

She tells The Rickie Report, “As an art history major, ancient cultures also impact my designs; I love the look of a slightly time-worn patina, as though a long lost piece was newly discovered. Combining raw and organic with delicate and romantic, whimsy, combinations of color and gemstones – all have a place in my designs.”  She starts with a concept; a new interpretation of the natural world, then the metal takes over and informs her how each piece should develop.

Meryl says, ” the forms and essence of nature, a dewdrop on a leaf, the rustle of leaves in the wind, the twisted scroll of vines and the gnarled knots of trees…these are the moments I want to capture and reflect in my jewelry.”

 

 

Elayna Toby Singer

 

Elayna Toby Singer is drawn to materials that come from the earth and to forms transformed through encounters with the elements. She is attracted to circles. They invite her in, are windows to the beyond; simultaneously open and whole.

She tells The Rickie Report, “Connecting one object to the next, both physically and visually, energy and awareness journey between root and crown. The space between reminds us to breathe. Twirling and dancing with the air around us, energy shifts, spirit awakens, transformation occurs. Presented in new contexts, each object’s intrinsic beauty is revealed. Discarded and precious materials – vintage tools, machine parts, manufacturing remnants, garden trimmings, mineral stones and beads from around the world – are combined to create one-of-a-kind artworks.”

No two Elayna Toby Singer pieces are ever the same.  Elayna Toby Singer uses only “cold connections” in creating my assemblage kinetic sculptures and jewelry. No welding or soldering for me. Instead, she uses wrapping and knotting techniques, along with swivels and metal links, to connect one object to another.
