May 12- May 24 :

“Derby Days”

 

Gallery View

 

 

May 12- May 24 : “Derby Days”: This is our show with a “Horse” theme, re-titled. We have a number of equestrian enthusiasts who have been working in our studio, visiting our gallery and asking for works that involve horses. The show is being held earlier this year to reach the equestrian community before they leave the area for the summer.

 

 

May 26-June 7:

 “Birds of a Feather”

 

 

May 26-June 7 “Birds of a Feather”  This show is opened to photographers, painters, sculptors, potters, jewelers and all fine artists who love our feathered friends. Again, if this does not evoke “bird” in you, and you can interpret this in any other way, you works are welcome

 

 

June 23-July 5

“Hook Line and Sinker”

 

Artwork by Jennifer Love Gironda

June 23-July5 “Hook Line and Sinker”We go from the air and tree tops, to the deep blue sea with this show. Nautical themes are what we anticipate, with lots and lots of fish and sea creatures. Once again, if this does not evoke “fish” in you, you can interpret this in any other way. 

 

 

July 7- July 19:

“Shoe Fetish/ Foot Fetish”

Shoe Fetish Gallery View

 

July 7- July 19: “Shoe Fetish/ Foot Fetish” This proved to be last year’s favorite show among our patrons who purchased more works than in any other show of the year . We like adding some levity to the hot summer by introducing the foot theme into our mix. Let’s get some pictures of these works into the gallery a few weeks early so we can get some more TV coverage on this. We want to bring the shoe loving crowds into the gallery to purchase your works. Last year some retired shoe manufacturers came into the gallery to buy.

 

August 4-August 16:

“Peanuts Rising”

 

 

Artwork by Bea Doone-Merena

August 4-August 16: “Peanuts Rising” formerly known as “The Male Form” We are repeating this successful special request exhibition. As in the past, this special show came from artists who felt slighted by the creations and shows that mostly feature the female form. They wanted equal time We welcome your interpretations.

 

 

August 18 to August 30

” Bread and Roses”

 

?????   Your Interpretation ?????

 

August 18 to August 30- ” Bread and Roses” in honor of Women’s Equality Day. The title, “Bread and Roses”, came from the 1912 Laurence Mill strike where women fought for their rights, asking for raises for bread, but for roses in their lives as well. This exhibition honors women, their contribution to the world and to art. Just being a woman in the arts (with or without a message) brings honor to the exhibit.

 

September 1-September 20th

 “Speak Their Names” Revisited: A Special Invitation Show

 


September 1-September 20th- “Speak Their Names” Revisited: A Special Invitation Show.

 

 

September 22-October 4:

“Exotica/Erotica” formerly called, “The Naked Truth”

 

Artwork by Pedro Gabriel Antonio

 

September 22-October 4: “Exotica/Erotica” formerly called, “The Naked Truth” We are always happy to repeat this show again and again, and think our new title will refresh our audience. This is a wide open topic that can be interpreted as broadly as you wish.

 

October 6- October 18:

“The Petting Zoo”

 

Artwork by Gin Blische

 

 

October 6 – October 18: “The Petting Zoo” formerly know at the Cat-O-Strophic Event: This wildly popular was all about cats, and now, all other animals. Cats of every shape, color and kind, and their brothers and sisters in the animal kingdom. We will again reach out to all of the animal rescue venues, pet shops and veterinarians as we publicize this event.

 

October 20-November 1

“Halloween, Freaky”

 

Gallery View With Artist Yury Lobo

 

 

October 20-November 1: “Halloween, Freaky” replaces the Annual “Day(s) of the Dead” Lake Worth is now doing “Day of the Dead,” so we thought we would encompass a wider range of the Halloween Scene this year. This event brought purchasing patrons into the gallery long after the exhibit was taken down.

 

November 2- November 15

2nd Annual Judaic Show

 

Gallery View

 

Thursday, November 2- Wednesday, November 15: 2nd Annual Judaic Show. We plan this show to occur over a month before Hanukkah so that works can sell in time for holiday giving.

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.

March 18-April 6: 7th Annual PEEPS

Show This annual show is open to all artists, and brought 1600 visitors to the gallery last year. It often gets TV and Press coverage….and it’s just for fun. There is a $100 top prize, and four second place prizes given to artists by the PEEPS™ Company. (For those of you who don’t know, PEEPS are those little marshmallow candies that used to appear at Easter time, and now appear all year round.) The show is judged by local celebrities and, when he can, by Bob Born, the inventor of PEEPS. Go to http://cgmspeeps.blogspot.com/ for pictures of the last few years of entries.

 

 

 

April 8-April 20: “There’ll Be No More Horsing Around”

 

This will be our first year of a show with a “Horse” theme. We have a number of equestrian enthusiasts who have been working in our studio, visiting our gallery and asking for works that involve horses. The gallery and studio will be participating in, and contributing to a major Breast Cancer Fund-Raiser at the Wellington Polo Club just prior to this event.

 

 

 

April 22- May 4 “Spin a Tale of Love”

Each artist entering this show will receive two antique wooden spindles that held yarn in the old knitting mills. You must use these spindles (in any manor you wish) as part of your artist entry. “Spin a Tale of Love” could be about any lovers throughout history, real or fictional, human or otherwise. This is your chance to tell your love story. (You need not ask “how” to use the spindles. It is up to you.)

 

 

 

June 17-July 6 “There Auto Be A Law”

A show about cars and motorcycles and widgets and gadgets- A recent study showed that there are fewer collectors of art among the young and wealthy. Many of these collectors are turning their attention to the collection of cars and bikes. Let’s test these waters and sell them the Art of Motorcycle and Automobile Art Maintenance.

 

July 8- July 20: “Shoe Fetish/ Foot Fetish”

This proved to be last year’s favorite show among our patrons who purchased more works than in any other show of the year (except for The Naked Truth.) We like adding some levity to the hot summer by introducing the foot theme into our mix. We want to bring the shoe loving crowds into the gallery to purchase your works.

 

 

 

August 5-August 17: “The Male Form”

We are repeating this successful special request exhibition. The special request came from artists who felt slighted by the creations and shows that mostly feature the female form. They wanted equal time We welcome your interpretations.

 

 

 

September 9-September 21: “The Naked Truth”

We are always happy to repeat this show again and again. Although it may seem similar to “The Male Form,” we see this as a wide open topic that can be interpreted as broadly as you wish.

 

 

 

October 7- October 19: 3rd Annual Cat-O-Strophic Event

This wildly popular event is all about cats; cats of every shape, color and kind. We will again reach out to all of the animal rescue venues, pet shops and veterinarians as we publicize this event.

 

 

 

October 21-November 2: 3rd Annual “Day(s) of the Dead”

This event brought purchasing patrons into the gallery long after the exhibit was taken down. The works of gallery artists, left over from this event, continue to sell. We have a whole new mailing list of DofD patrons who are looking forward to your works.

 

 

 

November 4-November 16: “The ‘I’ of Picasso”

This is our tribute to one of the world’s greatest and most versatile artists that ever graced this planet. It is your “I” as well as his, that will fuel this exhibit. Let your creativity flow, reflecting one or more of his art “periods” or one of your own.

 

 

November 18-November 29 “Whose Your Dada”

This your tribute to a movement that turned the art world on its head. Now it is time for you to stand on your head and influence the world around you though your art.

 

 

 

Joyce Brown tells The Rickie Report, “You may have noticed that we will not be repeating the “It’s A Dog’s Life” show this year. Although everyone loves dogs, it seems far more difficult to sell you works of art featuring dogs, than it is to sell your works on any other topic.  And for the rest of the season, we will turn the front of the gallery back to the member artists. If you are a 3-D artist , please consider joining the gallery (and/or) our new studio. Members do not pay fees to be a part of our special exhibitions. It is part of the membership. Write for an application and we will forward it to you”.

 

 

 

Art Teachers: If any of your students want to participate in any of our exhibits, they may do so without any fee. We welcome your participation, as an artist, as well.

Abbey Funk and Barbara Powell have come together for Smoke & Fire, an unconventional ceramic art exhibition opening on January 8th at Clay Glass Metal Stone Gallery.

 

 

AbbeyFunk_1

“Inspired By Soldner” by Abbey Funk

 

 

To create this collection of ceramic art, Abbey and Barbara merged into a dynamic duo, bringing distinctly different skill sets to the table.

 

BarbPowellRaku

Raku Fired Vessel by Barbara Powell

 

 

Working together from start to finish, Abbey and Barbara created a comprehensive and explosive collection of 3 dimensional fine art. Abbey  has turned the use of the potter’s wheel into the art of making extraordinary wheel sculptures that defy height and balance. Emerging from them are unworldly critters that can withstand the shock of the Raku flame.

 

AbbeyFunk3

“Untitled #3” by Abbey Funk

 

 

Every sculpture and vessel in the exhibition was finished with an atmospheric or alternative firing process. In this way, smoke and fire are truly the inspiration for this show.

 

 

BarbaraPowell_Saggar1

Sagger Fired Vessel by Barbara Powell

 

 

 

Raise a glass to our clay-making ancestors who invented these techniques ages ago, and join the artists of Clay Glass Metal Stone Gallery for the Opening Reception on January 8th, 2016.

“Study In Atmospheric Firing” by Abbey Funk

 

 

 

 

Raku, saggar, and wood fired pottery will be featured from January 8th – 20th at 15 South J Street.

 

RakuFiring

Raku Firing

 

Along with her latest creations, Barbara will be bringing many of the tools used to make them. Her works are beautifully decorative and affordable. Her knowledge of Raku and Saggar firing is extensive. This is your opportunity to acquire an appreciation for these ancient firing techniques, and to sign up for workshops to “Do It Yourself.”

 

WoodFiring

Wood Firing

 

Abbey Funk tells The Rickie Report, “I am a Conceptual artist. I create with purpose and for a reason. Through my chosen mediums of Clay and Metal, I express emotions and ideas. I create tangible stories that are always ready to be shared, infinitely patient in their completion. I create environments. I show Truth. I intend for the viewer to Question. As an artist, I seek constant growth and expansion. I push myself. I love the unknown. Experimentation is my answer for everything. There is beauty in creative failure and ‘mistakes’. Success is never giving up”.

“Let yourself be silently drawn by the strange pull of what you really love. It will not lead you astray.”- Rumi

 

Abbey Funk was born in Wellesley, MA in 1979. She completed a BFA in Studio Art at Florida Atlantic University in 2005, and moved to Brooklyn, NY after graduation. She worked in Manhattan as a Graphic Artist until 2010, and then returned to South Florida to focus on creating Fine Art. Working predominantly in clay, she also creates sculptures made of metal, gemstones, and found objects.

 

She became Adjunct Faculty at Palm Beach State College in 2011 and quickly turned into a sought-after pottery teacher in local ceramics studios. In 2012, she opened A. Funk Studio in Delray Beach, FL as a founding member of the art colony Artists Alley. Funk began working in metal in 2014. Her artwork is well-known throughout South Florida, and she has shown in venues in West Palm Beach, Lake Worth, Delray Beach, Boca Raton, Fort Lauderdale, and Hollywood, FL.

 

 

Both artists create at the Flamingo Clay Studio. The Studio is located at 216 South F Street with studio opportunities and workspace for 3-D Artists. For information call Joyce Brown-215-205-9441 or visit:

Gallery owner, Joyce Brown tells The Rickie Report, “Rather than try to compete with all of the holiday commercialism going on all around, Clay Glass Metal Stone Gallery has decided to create a space in the gallery for families to come to visit that will be fun, stoke the imagination and allow them to share fantasy through interaction with the arts. “Down the Rabbit Hole” is our way of thanking the community and friends for their kindness,  support, and passing the arts on to our next generations”.

“The Rabbit Hole Grows Cold” by Vandy

 

Are you looking for a Tea Party? There may be one, if you take the right path. Artists throughout the gallery will be contributing to the Majik of this event with many big and little surprises. As always, there will be foods and beverages befitting the event; mouthwatering enough to tickle your palate.

 Clay Glass Metal Stone Gallery is located at 15 South J Street in Downtown Lake Worth. Call ahead if you are bringing a group.

 

 

CGMSVandyspider017

“Along Came A Spider” by Vandy

 

 
Alice had no idea what she birthed when she took a header down that rabbit hole. She inspired hundreds of artists to run with the images she conjured up through her ramblings in Wonderland. Vandy and Sara explore areas of this land never before seen; the nooks and crannies of a land far beyond where Alice’s travels took her. Giant birds’ nests, alien critters, “Drink Me” vials and “Eat Me’ plates will be present.

 

 

 

CGMSVandyK universe

“Universe” by Vandy

Vandy, a leading Folk Artist for decades, has gained recognition for her Papier Mache works, whimsical and colorful. Collectors say they rival the finest works found in New York Galleries. In past lives, she air-brushed motorcycles, painted (and still paints) finely rendered renditions of her imagination, and has been part of a life sized puppetry ensemble. With commissioned works through the gallery, to sales, of her already Majikal creations, Vandy has long been recognized as a leader in the South Florida Avant Garde arts cadre. 

 

 

CGMSVandyCrystal ball cat

“Crystal Ball Cat” by Vandy

 

 

 

Vandy tells The Rickie Report, “My common thread is color and light. I work with all mediums and styles. I‘ve been creating since my earliest days. I have shown in galleries in the three County area and done commission work for private collections in eight states.  There is nothing I won’t paint… walls, furniture, plants..even the cats if they hold still long enough. I create art that has practical uses as well as being decorative. Evoking emotion with color is my definition of art”.

 

 

 

CGMShumansizednestbysara nest

 

“Nest” created by Sara McLennand will be human-sized

Sara McLennand has gained fame as a fine arts quilter with photographs of her works published in prominent art books and magazines. Her love for the natural realm has long inspired creations of large, encaustic coated, frond and seed tableaus, and mixed media paintings. Her largest pieces now hang in the homes of prominent collectors. Teaming with Vandy on this Majikal journey, Sara will be producing an number of enormous natural works; ones that could ONLY be found around the entrance of the Rabbit Hole.

 

 

CGMSTHREE SEEDS 1 FULLSara

“Three Seeds” by Sara McLennand

 

 

 

Sara tells The Rickie Report, “The inspiration for my work is all around me, and within me. The foundation for this body of work is recycled from nature, and usually reflective of the beauty and elegance of women. These graceful shapes cast a seductive message inviting the viewer to look a little closer; and stop for a minute; get to know me”.

 

 

CGMSsaraFLAT TOP FULL

“Flat Top” by Sara McLennand

“Plant material is gathered, manipulated, dried and coated with encaustic medium, a mixture of beeswax and Damar resin. The plant material is paired with elements of photography, wire, text, found objects and occasionally pieces of children’s art. The encaustic medium adds another dimension to the existing shapes and rich colors in the plant material, giving it leather-like appearance and smoothness. I love the way it coats and pools on the piece. The found objects add a bit of fun or commentary”, Sara explains.  The pieces in this body of work vary in size from 5 inches square to over 4 feet in height. The largest works are also 18” deep.

 

 

CGMSMILKWEED FULLSara

“Milkweed” by Sara McLennand

 
Sara’s background is filled with a passion for fiber and textiles. As a previous quilt artist, her work has been published, included in the Library of Congress, and won awards from the American Quilters Society, and Land’s End.  She tells us, “I am currently exploring encaustic wax and mixed media, and the endless possibilities. Although I will always have a love & connection for plant material, future works will also explore elements of photography and manipulation with encaustic”.
