Florida Artist Hall of Fame Inductee Bruce Helander exhibits alongside sculptor Miles Slater and painter Steve Manolis featuring new paintings by Jill Krutick

Bruce Helander – Critic, Curator, Artist
“The idea that you can take a piece of paper, that you can cut it up, rearrange it and also add a three-dimensional quality with certain devices that an artist uses – it calls me.”

Miles Slater – Sculptor
“Stone is nature and you relate stone to eternity.”

Steve Manolis – Painter
“I experiment in a visual and a dimensional context with everything, all the time. Color has impact.”

Jill Krutick – Painter
“I love the abstract, expressionistic style of painting and I’ve tried to develop that over many years… a more geometric, tapestry-like focus on artwork…”

Opening their studios to the public:

 

 

o Dave Teal, a figurative artist who is a long-time resident of Old Northwood where he both designed and built his home. Teal is  a figurative artist whose work emphasizes color, shape and the use of space to suggest images and ideas. He works in painting and drawing, as well as collage and three-dimensional forms. Teal’s work has been exhibited widely in the Northeast as well as in South Florida. For these various exhibitions his work has been selected by noteworthy curators from museums such as the Guggenheim, the Whitney and the Museum of Modern Art in New York City. And by curators from influential galleries in Miami including Frederic Snitzer Gallery

o Elizabeth Hutchinson, also known as Melo, was born and raised in South Florida. She attended Palm Beach State College for Graphic design in 2009. It was there that she was reintroduced to her love of the arts. In 2011 she began curating shows in order to shed light on the underground urban art and music scene. “My surroundings, love of fine art, and culture have helped shape my artistic identity. I describe my work as instinctive. Rarely do I sketch out subject matter or plan a color scheme. I love to work through the mishaps that occur when things are unplanned. Painting is a give-and-take process for me. Each piece is a problem or conversation that I’m working out on canvas”.

o James Sagui has been a professional woodworker, sculptor, and furniture designer/maker since the age of 15. He studied at Boston University’s Program in Artisanry. After 20 years working in Boston, in 2003 he established his workshop in West Palm Beach and was one of the first artists to work in the Northwood Industrial District. His studio furniture and sculptures are collected worldwide including permanent collections at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. Currently represented by various galleries in Florida including Arthouse 429 in Northwood, James has been a woodworking Instructor at the Armory Art Center, West Palm Beach and currently hosts life drawing sessions at his studio three times a week. A member of the International Furniture Society, Sculptor.org as well as other professional organizations, James has also shown at Art Basel, Miami, SCOPE and Art Palm Beach.

o Liz Ghitta Segall, was born in Canada, raised in New York and spent most of her life in Paris, France. A painter since childhood, she studied with Bernard Pfreim, Richard Pousette-Dart and Julien Levy at Sarah Lawrence College and at L’ecole Des Beaux Arts in Paris. She established her studio in the Northwood Industrial District along with her husband, James Sagui, over ten years ago and is represented by various Florida galleries including Arthouse 429 in Northwood Village. Currently an Instructor of Abstract Painting at the Society of Four Arts, Palm Beach, FL and at the Jupiter Island Beach Club in Hobe Sound, her work is collected internationally and has been shown at Red Dot Art Fair, Miami, Art Palm Beach among other venues.

o Sam Perry, a noted artist who grew up in Northwood and focuses on abstract and the human figure.  He is now one of the area’s most accomplished artists. He achieved success as an abstract artist in galleries in Miami, New York and elsewhere. Then, in the wake of 9/11, Sam chose to focus on the human figure. “It was a paradigm shift for me”, he explained. “I became more aware of humanity and its frailty”. Sam is an active proponent of the arts in this community. A member of the faculty of the Armory Art Center since 1987, he is now the longest-serving person there. He has taught art at Florida Atlantic University, Palm Beach Atlantic University and Dreyfoos School of the Arts, in addition to private lessons. As an independent curator Sam has produced exhibitions at Palm Beach Atlantic University as well as in Northwood at Harold’s Coffee Lounge and, before that, at My Coffee House. He has an uncanny knack for discovering the worthy yet overlooked artists in our midst. Sam received all of his education in Florida. ” I like to paint because it connects me to my community”. Sam added, “I think West Palm Beach can become even more significant in the arts. The Norton is growing, and so is the population of sophisticated art-lovers”.

“Head Spinner” by Sam Perry

o Terre Rybovich, an artist born and raised in old Northwood known for her unconventional drawings.  She is a daughter of Tommie Rybovich, who designed and built world-renowned boats in Northwood. Rybovich herself has drawn since she could hold a crayon. Largely self-taught as an artist, she earned her degrees in politics and economics from NYU and the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Her first career was in social justice philanthropy. “Why do I draw?” smiles Rybovich. “As the world’s great drawers will tell you, drawing is the most direct way to perceive the world around us.” The master charcoal artist continued, “I definitely don’t see drawing as just a preliminary step to a painting.” Her drawings have been exhibited throughout South Florida, receiving critical renown. Rybovich’s “…large-scale drawings are intriguing, even if difficult to decode,” wrote the Palm Beach Post. “Fantastic reveries…skillful handling of the charcoal medium.” Another Post review praised, “Mysterious pieces…hints of hieroglyphics and a strong sense of the ethereal…an artist whose work always intrigues and puzzles—in a good way.” Now working in the Northwood Industrial District Arts, Rybovich feels deep satisfaction at the sight of the neighborhood reawakening as a creative focal point.

In addition, Jeffrey Ciociola from Art Gallery Modern, who has recently moved to become the newest tenant of the Northwood Industrial District, will be displaying over 500 original pieces of modern, contemporary and outsider art.

“The art community in the Northwood Industrial District is growing and eager to share their work with art enthusiasts and the art movement happening in West Palm Beach,” said Jon Ward, West Palm Beach Community Redevelopment Agency Executive Director. “The open studios tour gives the public an opportunity to discover these local artists and provides a sneak peek into their work process and environment.”

Guests at the Northwood Village Art Night Out can enjoy local art and craft vendors from all over South Florida, shopping at the unique boutiques and galleries open late, live street-side artists and musicians, along with special features throughout the year like the Industrial District open studios tour. Residents and visitors looking for something out of the ordinary can experience an inspired evening in Northwood Village with impressive restaurants, distinctive shopping, and array of art in a laid back and hip atmosphere.

Art Synergy is a 501 (c) 3, not for profit arts organization founded in 2013. The fruit of the labors of Rolando Chang Barrero, Craig McInnis and Freddy Hennevelt grew out of the original Think Tank,. It has flourished through grassroots efforts beginning with a partnership with Art Palm Beach.  Currently, Rolando Chang Barrero, President and Ilene Gruber Adams, Vice President are managing the organization along with the support of many artists and art lovers in the community. Volunteers and board members are always welcome.

 

By March 2017, Art Synergy will have organized 6 juried exhibition that have provided Florida based artists to have their work seen, and collected by national and international collectors and art patrons. Also, Art Synergy assists nine Florida art districts organize, promote and market over 65 exhibitions in each year throughout the Palm Beach and Martin County durning Art Palm Beach week which was initiated January 2014.

 

 

The nine art districts are: Antique Row Art District,Boynton Beach Art District,Delray Art Art District,Lake ParkArt District,North Palm Beach Art District,Lake Worth Art District,Northwood Village Art District,West Palm Beach Art District,Palm Beach Art District.

 

 

In 2016 Art Synergy was classified as a 501 (c) 3 not for profit arts organization which will allow for contributions and donations to a fund currently being created to allow needy families join experiential cultural experiences. This was possible because of the generosity of David and Lee Ann Lester of Next Level Fairs who donate exhibition spaces (Booths) at 2 of the Next Level Fairs: Art Palm Beach and Art Boca Raton.

 

 

ART SYNERGY is a countywide movement to unify and promote the diverse culture of our vibrant arts community. ART SYNERGY’s future goals include events that will happen periodically throughout the year, the addition of more participating art districts, and initiatives that help unify the many diverse art entities, and talented artists that Palm Beach County has to offer. With the help of local CRAs, Public Arts Departments, the DDA in WPB and the Cultural Council of Palm Beach County (to name a few), ART SYNERGY has only one place to go… onward and upward.

Dede Pickering:

 

 

My photographs are meant to be a bridge between cultures and to express the universal human spirit.I am driven by my curiosity, sense of adventure and desire to explore the world. I was a traveller long before I was a photographer. Discovering the world has been a life long personal journey of soul-searching and self-discovery. Recording what I see has given me an increased empathy and connection to the world.Camera in hand I’ve traveled to six continents and more than one hundred countries, never hesitating to return to my favorite destinations. My passion remains The Far East and in particular the Buddhist areas that border the great Himalayan Mountain range.

 

 

ccepcikeringindia

“India” by Dede Pickering

 

My interest in photography grew out of my wish to record what I witnessed during my journeys to different cultures. That wish motivated me to document people and their everyday life, especially in marginalized communities. Stepping into the shoes of others was something I could only imagine. My camera changed that and serves as a bridge, not a barrier, to my subject allowing me to record hope and despair as well as the beauty and the roughness of the world.I enjoy the intimacy of photographing people. Photography helps me search deeply and intensely for expression and connection with my subject even in the darkest of circumstances. Looking into the eyes of others has served as my own reflection and helped me realize that we all share one world with similar dreams and aspirations.

 

 

 

 

ccepickeringcuba

“Cuba” by Dede Pickering

 

 

 

Interacting with strangers is one of the greatest gifts photography has given me. Travelling and welcoming the unknown has changed my life for the better. Based on what I have witnessed during my travels I know that every person can make a difference for good in this world. Even the biggest dreams and most ambitious goals begin with the actions of individuals, often beyond our own borders.For me, being involved in non-government charity work on behalf of women and children worldwide added purpose and meaning to my life and photography. I’ve witnessed the work of CARE and Women’s World Banking in the developing world and know the power and impact they can make on a community. When I combined my love of travel and photography to benefit humanity, everything changed and my life came together.

 

ccepickeringmyanmar2

“Mynamar” by Dede Pickering

 

 

 

My camera and my curiosity have led me off the beaten path. The journey is often more important than the image to me. My lens has allowed me to look inside the lives of others and blur the differences. The person I am today reflects the places I have traveled and the people I have met along the way.

 

 

 

Seth Resnick:

 

 

cceresnickrotura

Rotor” by Seth Resnick

 

My images are a journey into the personal space of my subject literally traversing and surveying into that space. I like graphic boundaries to place a limit on the space and through the use of layers and both straight and curved lines travel through that space deeply exploring the energy I feel from within that space. I want my viewers to see my photographs as an opportunity to consider the larger, unseen realities that contribute to the energy and uniqueness of my subjects.

 

 

cceresnickdeadvalley

“Dead Valley” by Seth Resnick

 

 

 

Ideally photographing isn’t just a record of a physical presence but a documentation of the encounter that exists between the energy I experience in my subject. In formal terms, my work is an exploration of a packed frame typically filled with layers in the form of light, texture and color. I am interested in both the tension and solitude that exists within the frame.

 

cceresnickcapetuxen

“Cape Tuxen” by Seth Resnick

 

I am attracted primary colors and most importantly formal boundaries are very important in my images. When I am shooting I feel I am exploring fantasy of nature. The images that work the best for me explore feelings of sensuality and create illusions but at the same time emphasize our fragile environment and instill a sense of responsibility to preserve it from further destruction.

“Collaboration: African Diaspora Exhibition” At the Center For Creative Education Offers Unique Stories Through Eyes, Hands And Lips Of The Artists Themselves

“Collaboration: African Diaspora Exhibition” at the Center for Creative Education is being produced by A.T.B Fine Artists & Designers LLC.  Opening on September 10th with a Public Reception, “Collaboration” will continue through October 21st with lectures, art demonstrations, artists talks and more. The focus is to show another aspect of art & culture in a community that many people in Palm Beach County have yet to experience. This year’s group includes artists who are originally from, reside in or are represented in the State of Florida. We believe that with the partnership of CCE & A.T.B. the “Diaspora” will be another great success.  The Rickie Report shares the details of the Exhibition, a few sneak peeks and how to RSVP.  Some of these events are FREE, but you MUST RSVP!

Collaborations2016Contemplating Michel Basquiat

“Contemplating” by Michel Basquiat

 

 

 

Their vision is to have an African Diaspora (The African diaspora was the movement of Africans and their descendants to places throughout the world – predominantly to the Americas). Trina and Anthony Burks explain,”  The concept of art itself does not have to be in reflection of the diaspora”.

 

 

Collaborations2016curators

 

Curators of “Collaboration”, Anthony Burks Sr. and Trina Slade burks

“This is the third installment of the exhibition. Originally created in 2013, the African Diaspora had displayed a vast variety of artists from around the country. We have achieved this not simply hanging art on a wall or sitting it on a pedestal. It was accomplished by unique story telling through the eyes, hands and lips of the artists themselves”.

He chooses his subjects because of what they mean to him, and he tells their stories through his combination of realistic forms, bright colors, and abstract images. Anthony is also co-curator of the exhibition.
