“Morikami Summer” by Jerry Gotkin

 

 

 

 

The Gotkin Art Studio was opened in Manhattan’s Upper West Side in 1963. In 2007, the Smithsonian Institution American Art Museum and Portrait Gallery Libraries in Washington, D.C. established a catalogue: “Marjorie and Jerry Gotkin Collection 1965-2007” that includes reproductions of their works, exhibitions, reviews, contracts and biographies. This talented individual has designed art for Off-Broadway productions, Bank of America, Copeland Davis (jazz pianist) and many more. Most recently, several works from his Morikami series have been installed at the Vitas Community Life Center in Delray Beach.

 

“Orchids Compilation” by Jerry Gotkin

 

Jerry slowly migrated to Florida from Brooklyn New York, where he was born in 1936. He received a Master’s Degree from Columbia and he also briefly studied at the Brooklyn Museum in the 50’s. His work focuses on various uses of oils, pastels, pen, ink, watercolors, acrylics, and fine-art photography.  After meeting his wife in 1961, they moved to Cape Cod where they opened their first art studio. By 1963, they moved to the Upper West Side in Manhattan and opened the Gotkin Art Studio. Additionally, his work was featured in the Panoras Gallery and he was commissioned to do a series of paintings of the New York skyline for the Sperry Rang Building. In recent years, he has had his artwork on display at the Hollywood Memorial Hospital, Hospice by the Sea in Boca Raton, Morikami Museum, Golden Anchor Art Gallery, Banker’s Trust Corporate branch, and on Atlantic Avenue.

 

“Cloud And Water Guest” by Jerry Gotkin

Additionally, Jerry has published five arts books, “The Gardens of Hospice by the Sea”, “The Tall Ships Watercolors/Gouache The Art of Marjorie Gotkin”, “Still Life/Floral Watercolor/Gouache: The Art of Marjorie Gotkin”, “Marjorie’s Table: The Material and Instruments of Art as Art, “Orchids: An Intimate Portrait of Beauty”, and Morkiami Pen and Ink Drawings.

 

“Orchids” by Jerry Gotkin

The Cape Cod Standard Times has said that “The series of oil on paper of the land and seascapes places him as a modern day Impressionist.”

“A  RETROSPECTIVE”

Opening Reception:

For over 50 years, Joan Brams has been producing art for the Palm Beaches. On a nothing day, when Joan was twenty- five-years-old, she woke up, poured herself a cup of coffee, and decided that this would be the day she started painting. She enrolled herself in the Norton School of Art and began taking lessons with a local artist. Immediately, she felt that she had been creating art her entire life and within a short period of time, people were actually purchasing her works. Brams joined two other artists and they opened a gallery on Worth Avenue in Palm Beach for a short time.

Artwork by Joan Brams

 

 

 

 

Soon, other galleries in the area began to take notice of her, and she began putting on one woman shows around the county and eventually, the Findlay Gallery in New York. After moving to Dallas for a few years, she studied sculpting. There, she learned how to cast Styrofoam sculptures into bronze and aluminum. Additionally, she attended welding school and loved doing it as an art form. After several shows in Dallas, she returned to the Palm Beaches to learn about ceramics.

 
Now, as she resides in the Palm Beaches creating her own genre of art, she has delved into creating work in various media forms. She considers her opus to be in multi-layered works in the areas of painting, ceramics, bronze, aluminum and even one-of-a-kind necklaces. Lately, Brams has been working on Chinese rice paper. Her work is on display in many private as well as public collections. Five of her sculptures are also a permanent fixture at the Palm Beach International Airport.

quartet-1-2-96mb

“Quartet” by Judith Rosenberg

 

 

Judith shares, “Painting and the creation of art are a great source of physical and intellectual pleasure.  Since retiring from Judith Jack, Inc., the jewelry design firm my husband, Jack and I founded, I’ve had the luxury of time to devote to a life-long love, the creation of art. Portraying women in all their diversity and drama is one of my inspirations. A merger of my original acrylic paintings and my latest interest – photography, is my newest body of work. My published writings on the subjects of historical fashion and jewelry, and the research necessary to be factual, have inspired me to portray women – bold, daring, playful or conservative – who so creatively present themselves to the world. Literature fashion, museums, architecture and nature have been influences as well”.

 

manhattan-style-3mb

“Manhattan Style” by Judith Rosenberg

 

 

Judith’s  recent interest has led her to incorporate photography into her paintings. “I’ve recently designed a series of “Women of the Flowers.” A sequence of steps is performed to achieve what I hope are distinctive results: I paint in acrylics, photograph the image then using the computer, alter colors, change backgrounds -just keep designing . I work on these paintings until my head and my heart say, “Enough!” They are then printed on an aluminum sheet. This media method offers drama, elegance and quality that sets them apart from any other process – complete, unique and without the need for framing, ready to adorn your home!  There are endless uses for the various mediums and tools that are available for artistic expression. I hope that the observer truly enjoys the marrying of media and the many aspects of beauty I have chosen in creating my art”.

 

 

jackrosenbergthree-martinis-1-4

“Three martinis” by Jack Rosenberg

 

 

 

 

After graduating from Brooklyn College, Jack worked as a microbiologist and then as a medical supply salesman to doctors and hospitals. He tells us, “My growing interest in antique jewelry led me to become, along with my wife, Judith, co-founder and CEO of Judith Jack, Inc., a jewelry design firm with international sales. Together with the design staff, I took pleasure in putting my own ideas into play. After selling the business and retiring, my artistic side flowered. Charcoals, drawing, painting and sculpting became part of my ever-expressing means of creativity. My awareness of shapes, colors, textures and forms in their splendor impelled me to continue to investigate a variety of methods and materials”.

 

 

jackrosenbergenchanting-2-0

“Enchanting” by Jack Rosenberg

 

 

 

 

You can hear the excitement in Jack’s voice as he shares, “Then I discovered photography! I’d found my true love! Looking through a lens helps me see and appreciate the world around me in a new and exciting manner and shuts out everything except what I see in the lens. It’s the perfect medium for me. It permits me to fully and continuously express my artistic vision and share my passion with others.  My fundamental belief is that everything in our physical surroundings can become the subject of a meaningful photograph. I try to capture and express the essence of what I see through my lens. I relish humanizing inanimate objects and creating scenes from unexpected sources.  Every photograph tells a unique story – real or imagined – and, hopefully evokes thought and pleasure in the viewer’s mind.  The photographs here reflect my ongoing labor and explorations, allowing me to share my artistic sensibilities and pleasure with a wider audience. I truly hope they are enjoyed”!

Sophia Stern Designs

 

While growing up in New York City, Sophia Stern had a fascination with trying on her mother’s jewelry. By the age of 14, she realized that she had the opportunity to create her own as a hobby, but that wasn’t enough. One day, while she was in the family jewelry business in New York City, her fascination for small shiny objects took over and she fell in love with gem stones. She realized that the opportunities to create something fascinating and unique were endless and knew that this was her calling. From there on out, her entire life has been about creating. For twenty- two years, she has been honing her craft and in 2011, Sophia Stern Designs was born. Her jewelry focuses on handcrafted necklaces, pendants, bracelets and earrings that combine semi- precious stones with metals such as solid brass, gold filled, copper, pewter and silver to create one of kind pieces.

Gaia’s Treasures & Custom Creations

Gaia’s Treasures and Custom Creations will be presenting bold and exquisite beaded Tibetan jewelry. Each piece is a work of art that incorporates silver, turquoise, coral and other semi-precious gemstones into unique designs. Elaine Durow and Cass Stryker, bring their jewelry from the Himalaya region of Tibet hand crafted by many artisans who left Tibet due to political and religious reasons. Their “French Bakelite” look made from amber copal, other saps and resin, results in stunning and unusual pieces and shapes.

For any orchid lover out there, they will know that this flower is almost unreal in its perfection.

Joe attended the College Conservatory of Music in Cincinnati, and received a Bachelor of Music degree. Even during this time period, he felt that he should have been carrying a paint brush to school and not sheet music. After college, he was drafted into the Vietnam War, but he was deferred into the American Peace Corps where he spent six years teaching English in Dakar, Senegal, West Africa. It was during this time period that Horton received his first art instruction from a local teacher and presented his first exhibition.

Continuing to study art at the Art Students’ League in New York City and at the National Academy of Design, he was awarded the Mayshark Scholarship at the League. After finishing up his studies, Horton opened up his own studio in Sante Fe, New Mexico. For the last twenty- five-years, his oil paintings of the Southwest have been exhibited there. In 1999, he exhibited a one-man show in Lake Worth on the landscapes of Key West. In 2012, he did another one-man show entitled “The Beauty of Man” which featured over 45 figurative male oil paintings. Once again he is doing another one man show entitled “Extremes – Lake Worth to Sante Fe.” The show, with 54 oil paintings will encompass a wide range of styles from impressionism to realism. The exhibit will feature paintings from his time living here in Florida and in New Mexico, as well as, paintings from his travels.

His work has been displayed in the Bacardi Tower, Valentine Design, Parsons School for Design and Alexander W. Dreyfoos School of the Arts.

“This exhibition is a culmination of my previous artistic endeavors, and demonstrates my passions for art and engineering,” shared artist Zachary Rapaport. “My objective for the show, along with every artwork I make, is to help others break barriers by doing so myself. I feel fortunate to be able to showcase my work to the community.”

 

Rapaport’s gallery is divided into three sections: the space will comprise of a kinetic installation, photography and multi-planar paintings. The installation is about creating a space where an individual can interact with his or her environment. The large photography and artwork are expressive and a reflection of his desire to impact society.

The Bente S. and Daniel M. Lyons Art Gallery is sponsored by Barbara and Hal Danenberg, Marsh & McLennan Agency and Jupiter Medical Center.

Painting by Dina Gustin Baker

 

Dina hails from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, where she always had a love affair for art in its most abstract of forms. She attended the Barnes Foundation and received a full scholarship to the Art Students League, in New York City. During this time period, she participated in various exhibitions and continued working out of her own studio.

Painting by Dina Gustin Baker

 

Presently, she has had over 33 one person shows and has spent her entire life being committed to her passion. Her work is her own expressive style of conceptual and abstract paintings. For Baker, her art is her way of exploring and discovering her own feelings in terms of colors, forms and movements. While her work is considered to be very introverted, it allows those watching her work to emotionally connect with her pieces. Baker has said that “painting is poetry without words, music without sound, and freedom without loss.”
