“Never Look Back” by  Dana Axel

 

Dana Axel has studied art since High School (Great Neck North Senior High), in Long Island, New York.  At Hofstra University, she was mentored by Professor Perle Fine, a major figure in the Abstract Expression era.  After receiving her B.S. in Education, Specialization Fine Arts as well as all of the painting courses towards the Master of Fine Arts, Dana taught art in the Port Washington School District, New York.

 

 

Artwork by Dana Axel

 

 

Dana’s artwork has been seen in many gallery shows in New York State and New England:  Emily Lowe Gallery; Heckshire Art Museum; Huntington Art League; South Shore Arts Council; the Plainview-Old Bethpage Library Art Shows;  Southern Vermont Art Center, and Stratton Mountain Arts Festivals. A proud member and exhibitor of the Lake Worth Art League since 2012, Dana has served on the Board of Directors for four years. Her paintings have been honored in a Two Person Art Exhibit in the South Palm Beach Town Council Hall, the Art Expo at Valencia Pointe, the Compass Community Center, and Artisans On The Ave in Lake Worth.

 

Artwork by Dana Axel

 

Dana tells The Rickie Report, “Using a “minimalist” vocabulary, I express my perception in a “visual voice” conveyed in a Hard-Edged Abstraction style. Predominantly painting with acrylic on canvas, my work is both non-representational and figurative.  I use collage as preliminary sketches for my paintings. Found imagery and forms are arranged, added to and subtracted from, until my concept emerges”.

She has built her reputation in the Palm Beach Community as one of the most unique glass etching artists in the area. Carolyn has lived in the Jupiter/Tequesta area since 1979 and has developed an eye for the tropical Florida scenes from long legged birds to intensely detailed ocean life which in turn creates one of kind glass art.  “I love working with people and using my 20 years experience to create a beautiful customized look in glass whether it be an entrance way or a free standing piece of glass art. All my designs are created by hand, an intricate detailed process to enhance each clients home and personality. Making my glass art a personal favorite for each client is always satisfying I take pride in my work as does my staff and the exclusive following it has created.”

Understand Photography Studio tells The Rickie Report, “We are so honored to bring Carolyn Edlund of Artsy Shark as a guest instructor for this workshop. We held this workshop in February and it sold out months ahead of time, so don’t procrastinate on registering”!  This workshop is designed to get you prepared to take immediate action on your journey to sell your fine art photography.

 

Carolyn Edlund Photography Workshop

 

 

Topics to be covered:

Build Your Portfolio. What defines a saleable collection of photographic art? What are the common mistakes that undermine photographers? This presentation will address how to create a thoughtful, compelling portfolio designed to appeal to your chosen audience. Bring your laptop with your best images. We will be working hands-on with each student to put together their best portfolio.

 

 

 

Know Your Audience. Successful photographers have a clear concept that appeals to their target audience. We’ll help you niche, niche, niche to really understand the psychology of who will buy your artwork and why. This presentation addresses marketing principles, sales triggers, building value, and buyer behavior. Using examples of photographers with strong core concepts, we’ll take a look at how this works – then apply it to your personal situation and goals. This essential session can be transformative!

 

Carolyn Edlund Consulting With an Artist

Tell Your Story. Excellent photography is crucial to making sales, but your story is equally important. Buying art is an emotional decision. As you learn how to best share your passion, your technique and your expertise, you make yourself as the photographer an integral part of every purchase. In this workshop, you will begin to write and hone your own artist story, and understand how to tell it.

 

 

 

 

Brand Your Business. Once your portfolio is put together, you’ll need to think about branding. This includes your website, your color schemes, your framing, and your booth design if you are doing art shows. Build a memorable brand through consistency and professionalism – we’ll show you how.

 

 

 Carolyn Edlund in Consultation

 

 

 

Create Your Plan. What vision do you have for yourself as a photographer selling your work? What goals do you have? What are the options, and different marketplaces available, and which will you choose? This part of the workshop will focus on a step-by-step plan for each attendee to move forward after the program is completed.

 
Bonus: Understand Photography founder Peggy Farren will present:

What do judges look for in competition and for a juried position in an art show?

 

Carolyn Edlund:

 

 Carolyn Edlund has an extensive background as an entrepreneur, writer, speaker and art business consultant. Her background includes owning a production ceramic studio for twenty years, selling product into over 1,000 retail accounts during that time. Subsequently, she was an outside sales rep for the largest art publisher in the world, earning “Rep of the Year” honors.

 Glass by Tony Glander

Tony Glander started working in stained glass in 1989. It didn’t take long for him to become totally hooked on making beautiful art works in colored glass. In 1990 he purchased a stained glass studio, Glass Fantasies in Gaithersburg, MD. “I love every technique from cold glass to hot glass”!

 

 

Glass by Tony Glander

Wanting to further expand the quality of his work, Tony added silk screening to his many skills. “I never really cared for faces done in stained glass so one day I had a brainstorm – use a silk screened photo on the glass.” He tried using a picture of his wife and the results were simply stunning. “After that piece, I was hooked on using screen printing anytime I could. Although I have created a lot of really nice pieces, my best works of art are my young children Maya and Lucas.”

Abstract Glass and Metal Sculpture by Irene Jalowayski

Irene Jalowayski has been a working as a glass artist for the past twelve years in Palm Beach County, Florida. She works primarily with fused glass, cast glass and mixed media.

“Heart Wave” bracelet and Necklace by Irene Jalowayski

 

 

For the past few years Irene has been making cast glass sculptures which are created by making a clay mold, casting in plaster then filling plaster mold with glass and firing at 1500 degrees. The mold is destroyed when the piece is removed from it so all are truly one of a kind. This year she has also been casting glass jewelry boxes which have been very popular with clients. Irene said “ casting is a very versatile medium!

And:

   FIRST FRIDAY ARTWALK OCTOBER 6th

IN ARTIST ALLEY, DELRAY BEACH, FL

354 4th Ave.  Delray Beach, FL

Vicki Siegel invites the public to visit her new studio and exhibit space at 354 4th Ave. in Delray Beach in Artist Alley the first Friday of the each month beginning Oct. 6 and continuing Nov. 3, December 1 and into the New Year. Vicki is sharing this new space with two other artists; Brenda Gordon and Magnus Sebastian (Gordon & Magnus Gallery).

 

VICKI SIEGEL:

 

Vicki Siegel’s work combines painting and photography together. She creates images that unite her fascination with the world around her with the physicality of paint. Blending the two art forms is a process that results in images that are both real and imaginary. The photographers gaze allows her to observe and archive reality, while the paint flows from her subconscious to her brush in marks that are uniquely her own.  Siegel says, “In my work I ask the viewer to engage by comparing what is photographic and what is paint, but also what is personal and what is universal”. In the narrative it is her hope that they see her vision of how strange and wonderful life is, and how beautiful nature is and the necessity of preserving it.

FRIENDS  OF  Jonathan Dickinson State Park

INVITE YOU TO

“ARTS & CRAFTS For FIREFEST”

SATURDAY, OCTOBER 21ST

1 – 5 PM

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Fire Fest is fun-filled, Halloween-themed family event educating the community about prescribed fire and fire safety awareness in Florida! This annual Fall event in meant to increase awareness and appreciation of the park’s unique flora and fauna, recreational opportunities, and rich natural history. While attending Fire Fest, visitors learn how prescribed burning preserves our urban interface, improves habitat for native wildlife and plant species, and replenishes the environment’s nutrients. Many of Florida’s plants and animals, including the iconic Scrub-jay, are dependent on prescribed fire.

During Fire Fest, two prescribed burn demonstrations are led by the Florida Park Service’s District Five Fire Team in full fire-gear and include the ignition of the fire, “brush” trucks ready to spray water, exposition of firefighting hand-tools, and Q & A during and after the burn demonstrations. Other fun activities include live music, roasting marshmallows around the campfire, flaming buckets, live animal demonstrations, arts and crafts, a Spooky Trail, and more! Swamp buggy rides, interactive hayrides, and an ultimate 4 in 1 bounce-house and obstacle course will also be available for additional fees. Inside the Kimbell Education Center, visitors will enjoy interactive exhibits, short films, and arts and crafts activities.

Contact the Kimbell Center for more details about Fire Fest, and learn how you can get involved too! Call 561-745-5551, or email libby.reinert@dep.state.fl.us.
