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.

JF Gallery Presents “Above the Couch”, a Fresh Look at Exhibiting Artwork

“What type of art is the best to display above the couch?  Size, color, and genre come into play. Is one piece of art just right, too small, or is the work of art strong enough to carry the wall and the couch? Sometimes one large single piece is enough, at other times, it’s a grouping of art that gives the wall impact. What are your intentions? Demure or Bold?”  These are all of the decisions Joseph Pubillones plus nine well-known designers took into consideration as they show off their design process with pairings of sofas, loveseats and chairs along with their selection of art at “Above the Couch”. This fresh exhibit has been curated by Designer and Design Columnist, Joseph Pubillones and appears at JF Gallery in West Palm Beach.  The Rickie Report gives you the details and a sneak peak.

Art Talks:

 

Wednesday, February 5 at 2:30 p.m. – “Discovering an Ancient Culture through the Contemporary Art Movement of Australia’s Aboriginal People,” by Jennifer Guerinni-Maraldi

 

While travelling in Australian in the early 1990s, Guerinni-Maraldi and her husband purchased a major work by Freddie Timms,“Sugar Bag,” (acrylic on canvas, 180 x 230 cm) painted during the artist’s time working with Frank Watters (Watters Gallery) in Sydney. This magical painting was the single catalyst that spurred Guerinni-Maraldi to begin exhibiting and selling contemporary art in London in the new millennium. Each year, she travels to Australia visiting remote indigenous communities, curators, collectors and artists. Her efforts in the United Kingdom aim to establish a greater awareness of high quality indigenous work and to build a stronger market for ethically sourced, contemporary Australian indigenous fine art.

 

Thursday, February 6 at 2:30 p.m. – “Contemporary Chinese Brush Painting” by Michael Goedhuis

 

For the last 20 years, Michael Goedhuis has been at the forefront of the popularization of contemporary Chinese art. Goedhuis will examine that tradition, its relevance today, and how new works can be combined with ancient material. Goedhuis has held many exhibitions on the new Chinese brush painters, most recently at the Saatchi Gallery in London in 2013.

 

Saturday, February 8 at 2:30 p.m. – “Cathleen Naundorf, Fashion Photographer to the Stars,” by Holden Luntz

 

Holden Luntz of Holden Luntz Gallery Palm Beach presents a look inside Naundorf’s series on haute couture fashion including her work for Chanel, Dior, Jean Paul Gaultier, Lacroix, Elie Saab, Lagerfeld and Valentino. Her artistic process through this series was very thorough as she researched the history of the houses, explored the archives of the couturiers, and chose the models, hair and makeup. With her research, she created lively storyboards, as well as written summaries of her productions, which include personal interviews with designers.

 

 

Sunday, February 9 at 2:30 p.m. – “Fauxbergé: Spectacular Master Forgeries – Five Case Studies,” by Geza von Habsburg

 

Géza von Habsburg is an internationally renowned author and leading authority on Fabergé. Much of his career has been devoted to organizing and curating exhibitions all over the world. He served as the curator and organizer for Fabergé, Jeweller to the Tsars (1986–87) at the Kunsthalle in Munich. Also, while a Board Member of the Fabergé Arts Foundation, he was Chief Curator of Fabergé, Imperial Court Jeweler (1993–94), which was shown in Saint Petersburg, Paris and London. He also served as Guest Curator of Fabergé in America, which toured five cities in the United States (1996–97). As an educator, Géza von Habsburg served as an associate professor at the New York School of Interior Design, the Bard Graduate Center for Studies in the Decorative Arts, and New York University.

Last year saw a transformation of AIFAF with the adoption of an easily navigable floor plan, a more contemporary presentation and a fashionable new restaurant and VIP facilities. Together, these elements offer an extraordinary atmosphere for viewing and purchasing the museum-quality art. Each work is vetted by experts who carefully examine for quality, authenticity and condition, ensuring that collectors may buy with confidence.
