OSGSHolidayJewelry

 

 

Take part in a festive evening to help ease the worry of holiday shopping as OSGS presents one-of-a-kind jewelry. Enjoy one-on-one interaction with the Artists, sipping cider, and taking in light music.

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 Lefkovich's Earrings and Pendant

Meryl Lefkovich’s Earrings and Pendant

 

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.

 

Elayna Toby Singer's Bracelet

Elayna Toby Singer’s Bracelet

 

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.”

 

Earrings by Elayna Toby Singer

Earrings by Elayna Toby Singer

 

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.

Call to Artists for “Artnado”- A Juried Art Show at the South Florida Fairgrounds Expo Center

The result of Jack Busa caring about art and listening to artists is a new juried art show in our area, which is partnering with the League for the Education of the Arts in Florida (LEAF).  “Artnado” will take place at the South Florida Fairgrounds, featuring 2D and 3D creations November 8th and 9th, 2014.  This indoor show has a lot to offer to artists and art patrons alike.  Using high-technology, patrons will be able to see participating artists’ work in situ as well as in their exhibition areas.  Artists are highly encouraged to demonstrate their techniques, to further inform the art loving public.  The Rickie Report applauds this trend, believing that better informed art lovers become more enthusiastic art patrons.  Artnado also includes an Art Contest for all Palm Beach County middle school students.  Half of the proceeds from the profit of ticket sales will be awarded to art programs in the local schools. We want to point out that there is no connection between the presenting organization, Artistic Synergy and Art Synergy (ARTWEEK at Art Palm Beach).  The Rickie Report shares this Call to Artists and looks forward to hearing when you get accepted!

CALL TO ARTISTS #3- Day(s) of the Dead (Open to all Interpretations) Hosted by Clay Glass Metal Stone Gallery, 15 South J Street in downtown Lake Worth.

 

The Day of the Dead is celebrated annually in Mexico on November 1st, coinciding with the observation of All Saint’s Day.

Open to 2D and 3D Artists in all mediums.  Artists may enter up to 2 pieces of current work.  For an application, contact Joyce@flamingoclaystudio.org or visit CGMS Gallery, 15 South J Street- Lake Worth FL 33460.
