“In the hands of a photographic artist, the camera is just a tool, like a painter’s brush, a starting point toward achieving a creative vision, whether it is consciously planned or happens spontaneously,” said Professor Sherry Stephens, who curated the exhibition with Art Gallery Specialist Karla Walter.

Stephens also notes that much of what transpires between pointing the camera and finishing a print or editing a film is the actual artistic journey for photographers.

Vicki Siegel’s paintings explore painting and photography combined. Blending the two art forms is a process that results in images that are both real and imaginary. In these colorful figurative works, a boundary becomes a metaphor for the point where two things become different. Human and natural forms are transformed by the use of acrylic paint, image transfers from Siegel’s photographs, and paint skins.  For the first time Siegel will also be exhibiting paint skin sculptures that combine found materials, light and paint. Vicki Siegel explains these new works, “It is through the use of paint as sculptural material that I hope to bring new ideas to the medium of acrylic paint”.

“Out Of Bounds” Detail by Vicki Siegel

 

 

 

Leora Klaymer Stewart works primarily in 3 dimensions using a variety of textile and digital photo techniques to construct her fiber forms and installations. These “sculptural” forms are constructed of natural and manmade fibrous materials to create pieces that are metaphors for the environment, specifically water as a source for life. Klaymer’s works remind us that the oceans, waterfalls, mangroves, and underwater sea life are endangered and represent the fragility of life on earth.

“Uncharted” Detail by Vicki Siegel

 

 

 

 

For this show, Stewart has created an installation which is a collaboration between Leora Klaymer Stewart, Steve Spring and Sandra Kuba. “Coral Sea” was created using Steve Springs’ photographic images of coral reefs and digitally printed on silk panels along with suspended sea life forms constructed in mixed media by fiber artist, Sandra Kuba. “Blurring Distinctions” is curated by Karla Walter, Director of the Eissey Gallery at Palm Beach State Campus, PGA.

Durga Garcia’s ABCs of Getting Your Work Out There Part II

Durga Garcia’s article, “The ABCs of Getting Your Work out There” continues in this Rickie Report.

Entering Art Shows

 

  • Read ALL information slowly and carefully AND Follow the rules

 

  • Make a Check list to ensure you have not missed anything!

 

  • Enter Shows that match your works’ theme and discipline

 

  • Online Exhibits  or Out of the area Exhibits:   If work needs to be shipped leave enough time for shipping ( and acts of nature like a snow storm or bad weather)!
  • ALL SHOWS:

 

          Can you manage the dates?

           Entry deadline date?

           Notification date?

           Delivery date (or shipping date)?

           Reception date?

          Pick up work date?  

Having someone else deliver/pick up? Have a written agreement of acceptability!

 The Award Ceremony

 

 

JUDGES WANT TO BE shocked or amazed, amused or educated – to see things in a way not seen  before.

 

For the amateur it’s a learning process that mimics being commissioned. You are working to a very  loose brief, but you are attempting to impress others rather than just yourself.

 

 

For the professional it is of course a chance to achieve greater exposure for your work, and  therefore generate more work, but it is also a chance to ‘commission yourself’ rather than working to a client’s directions.  Done correctly that can be creatively very liberating.

 

 

"Hardbody in Tutu" by Durga Garcia

Hardbody in Tutu” by Durga Garcia

 

Being part of an exhibit is something to be proud of, having people see your work and getting the  chance to see how people respond to your work will give you invaluable feedback in your growth as  an artist and is an important part of being an artist.

 

 

 

WINNING IMAGES have a “Wow” factor with with a story to say to be truly award-winning.

The image needs to be artfully constructed and technically well executed…beyond being something pleasurable to look at in a decorative way –— it should provoke or calm,  educate or entertain with innovation, humor or add revelation.

Rejections and Not Winning

 

 

  • There may be several hundred entries with only room for only 50 pieces to be exhibited.

 

  • More entered pieces are not accepted than shown

 

  • It doesn’t necessarily mean the non-accepted work is not good,  just not suitable for that exhibit, in that judges opinion, at that time or maybe needs just a little change  to be better.

 

  • Sometimes it is simply a matter of space.

 

Art is very subjective and even the most expert opinion, is just that, an opinion.

 

 

Winning, the difference between 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th place and honorable mentions could be so slight,  the same judge on a different day could easily pick a different order of winners. Being recognized as one of the best is an achievement.

 

 

Any Award is good and can become part of your resume. It is good practice to keep track of your  achievements.

Ms. Garcia states, “I strive to make an image that people want to look at closely. To notice subtle nuances, created with light and shadows. My fine art images rarely show identity, have a timeless quality, with often the unexpected, gestures, textures, emotions and are hopefully thought-provoking.”

Durga’s work is being highlighted in a SOLO show this March at the N.A.W.A Gallery, 80 Fifth Ave, NYC, March 5 – 28, 2014, titled “As We Are” .  More information about this exhibit is listed below.  She is also taking part  in an International Invitational show, The MALAFOCO PROJECT, Montevideo, Uruguay, March 2014.

 

 

nawa.logo.lowRes

 

 

“As We Are,” a solo show of the works of artist Durga Garcia, opened March 5, 2014 in the intimate N.A.W.A. Gallery. The show is an assemblage of Garcia’s conceptual photographic work including her earliest and memorable dark series “Until Ever After,” her ongoing Allegorical series, and a selection of recent conceptual commissioned portraits.  The connecting theme is female figures and earthy tones with subtle shades of meaning, making the images sensuous and often thought-provoking. ” 

“Garcia discloses her mastery of the photographic medium as well as versatile, playful nature. Reflecting the eerie genre of her inspiration sources, these photographs interpret one of the most elaborated themes in art.”    –Art Critic Ana Bambic Kostov, ArtAscent Magazine December 2013

 

 

 When asked how this show came about, Durga tells The Rickie Report: “I was standing in the National Association of Women Artists Gallery last November, looking at their logo, thinking I can (photographicly)  do that!   Three months later, my N.A.W.A logo inspired work is the frontis piece for my first solo show, As We Are, and it is at the       National  Association of Women Artists gallery on 5th Ave in NYC, during the National Association of Women Artists 125th anniversary year!  This really is more than I dreamed of, I am so excited!”

Durga goes on to share, “The image has been titled “Artisans”, although in color for the frontis piece, for the fine art version, it is desaturated it for the more muted tones I enjoy.  The plans for the As We Are show after is closes in NYC, are for the show to travel to Hilton Head SC before exhibiting in Florida”

Ilene Adams, Prolific Artist, in Three Juried Exhibits

Ilene Adams has been very busy in this early part of season!  The Rickie Report is pleased to announce that her art is displayed in several juried shows and she has another opening in Jupiter on November 15th!  Ilene works in photography, mixed media and drawings.  Her accomplishments as a leader in the arts community as well as running her own marketing business confirm that she is not only dedicated to her own art, but others as well.  Read all of the details in this article!

Town of Jupiter Art Gallery

Presents

Ilene Adams

Opening Reception

Friday, November 15th

6 – 8 pm

Exhibit Runs  November 15th – December 27th

Jupiter Community Center is located at

210 Military Trail near the Police Station

 

 

Ilene Adams has been busy early this season with her art displayed in several shows and soon to be featured in the Town of Jupiter Art Gallery.  The show will run from  November 15 through December 27th with the opening on Friday, November 15th from 6-8PM. The Exhibit and Reception is open to the public. Ilene will show a combination of her work including mixed media, photography and drawings.

 

 

"Reflection"

Reflection”

 

 

She currently has work in the 3rd Annual Juried Photography Show at the Palm Beach State Gallery at Eissey Campus, Art on Park Gallery in Lake Park and The Lighthouse ArtCenter Artists’ Guild Gallery at Midtown.

 

 

Ilene studied printmaking and painting in Rome and received a BFA from Tyler School of Art, Temple University. She has also studied with Milton Glaser at the School of Visual Arts in New York. She has had many art careers, from designing textiles to creating murals to graphic design and all of these influences show up in her fine art. Her paintings are interesting mixed media, often including photographic images, paint, textural surfaces, gold leaf, yarn and various collage materials. Much of her work is nostalgic using images from childhood or familiar places.

 

 

Ilene states, “I believe that art and beauty bring joy and well-being to individuals and are essential for a well-balanced life.  Ever since I was a child, I have created one form of art or another. The artists that influenced me the most are Robert Rauschenberg and Maxfield Parish. Rauschenberg’s influence is apparent in my paintings that incorporate paint, collage, photographic images and artifacts. They evoke a feeling of nostalgia or of imaginary places.

 

 

"We All Have Wings"

“We All Have Wings”

She tells us, “My photographs deal mostly with nature, but nature through an intense filter.  Images are put under a microscope and colors are heightened. There is beauty all around us but how often do we take the time to really see it? Ordinary images are enhanced to create painterly new images that leave the viewer wondering if they are paintings or photographs? Abstract or realistic?”

 

 

Bruce Helander wrote, “Ilene Adams, is also a professional painter who has continued to sharpen her palette and compositional skills while searching out new subject matter inspired by nature. Her recent series of large-scale photographic prints could be mistaken initially for a sharp focus oil painting on canvas. This wondrous selection of water reflections from surrounding natural growth topped off with floating green circles of blooming water lilies is a unique extension of the artist’s trained eye.  In some of the photographs we are confronted by a series of dazzling reflective vertically vibrating lines that cut through the tint of the water like a sharp knife through butter. Adams likes to integrate a bit of art history in her work where it’s useful. She often pays homage to impressionists like Monet connected at the hip with contemporary sensibilities and a flare for vibrant, almost unnatural color. Her painted compositions that are also inspired from the Everglades often center on a single sculptural form of a tropical bird, perhaps standing on one leg.”

 

 

"Construct"

“Construct”

 

Aside from creating art, for the past 25 years or so, Ilene has had a company called The Marketing Works.  Originally a two million dollar company based in Boston, she now works with smaller businesses, doctors, artists and nonprofits developing marketing strategies and branding. She creates logos, collateral materials, websites and overall marketing strategies. (www.IleneAdamsInc.com).

 

"Lillies and Squiggles"

“Lillies and Squiggles”

 

Ilene has also worked in the non-profit art world bringing her marketing talents and creativity to an art center in West Palm Beach and working to advance art and artists in the community.  She is currently working on several community art projects to bring art to the public.

 

 

Ilene’s artistry has been seen in many local juried art shows, including Palm Beach State Eissey Gallery, The Guild Gallery, Art on Park Gallery, Whole Foods (Solo Show), Lighthouse ArtCenter (Landscapes), JF Gallery (Mediums), Palm Beach County Art in Public Places, Wellington Art in Public Places 2010, AmTrust Bank Exhibition, Riverside Bank Exhibition, Zephyr Art Show, Wellington Art Society, Armory Art Center (Student Faculty Show), LK Mix Art Exhibition, Armory Art Center, Tyler School of Art, Poster Competition – Rome, Northwood Artwalk, City of West Palm Beach Cultural Association.

One of the featured student artist is Alysha Wilcox, a 21-year-old sophomore from West Palm Beach. “My style is constantly evolving. I work with ideas, and as I’m working I usually generate at least ten more,” she says. “My artwork usually reflects life and the beauty found in it. Although ceramics has been my main medium up until this point, I am interested in many media. My goal, as an artist, is to make art that people from all walks of life can appreciate.”

 

Rolando Chang Barrero is this year’s curator of the show. Barrero has over 30 years experience in the visual arts as a working artist, with a B.F.A. from the Art Institute of Chicago.

 2013 Career Art Panel 9

The Rickie Report recently attended a panel discussion, ” Living a Creative Life” at the Palm Beach State College – Gardens Campus.  Artist and Professor in the Visual Arts Department, Jacques de Beaufort moderated a panel of five community based artists: April Davis, Amy Gross, Chris Riccardo, David Alan Sincavage and Jackie  Tufford.

Jacques de Beaufort initiated the discussion by pointing out  that “To be an artist is to be different in terms of a career. No artist will ever follow the same path.  It isn’t a typical 9 to 5 job.  It is more a way of life, an identity.  Everyone has a different yardstick to measure their success.”

 

April Davis started as a biology major who took some art classes.  In her junior year, she became an art major.  She spoke about the roller coaster lifestyle and its volatility.  “It’s hard to be productive when you don’t have a deadline”, she explained.   She gives herself goals to keep her on track and painting.  While she now has her own gallery in Jupiter, she is still active in the Art Festival scene, marketing her work at art fairs almost every weekend from December through May.  She pointed out, “While you need to be true to yourself, you need to be practical.  It is important to focus on the business aspect of being an artist and you must remain disciplined to produce your art work.”

 

Amy Gross acknowledged that, “the world will go on if you make art or if you don’t.”  Her parents were artists and she felt that was her identity as she grew up.  Originally working in textile design, she began creating jewelry to calm her creative needs and eventually moved to canvas. Amy ‘s acceptance at the South Florida Cultural Consortium gave her a boost and the encouragement she needed to move into 3D art.  She is a great proponent of using the internet to show, share and sell your artwork. 

 

Chris Riccardo started as a Graphic Design major and moved to Sculpture at Boston University.  After graduating, he moved to West Palm Beach, FL to work in a foundry, where he could focus on his own art as well as learn new techniques.  He later opened his own foundry and was very busy producing other people’s art. Needing time to focus on his own creativity, he teaches at the Armory Art Center, running their foundry and also teaches sculpting.  More recently, Chris moved to one-of-a-kind clay sculpture, learning firing techniques since he is no longer casting.  He told us, “Your work develops because of the struggle.  You need to see yourself as a business, to make a living.  Success can be measured with small indicators, not necessarily monetary.  Having respect from your peers and having clients wanting commissions can be very satisfying.”

 

David Alan Sincavage shared that as a young child he had no plans to be an artist.  He was always looking for a way to escape his abusive family.  He told us, “Drawing became a habit and a hobby.  I would barter my drawings for lunch in high school.”  David was quick to point out that , “a life in the arts is not just about the visual arts.  It includes the literary and musical arts as well.”  To remain motivated when his creativity is lagging, David found that volunteering at a homeless shelter was helpful.  “Creativity”, he explained,” is a self-centered process.  To be involved in a self-less activity can help you experience another part of life.”  He advised that the listeners could “go into an art career to make money. Art is a language.  Be passionate about it. It is an expression of our humanity.  Never give up!”

 

Jackie Tufford described herself as a multi-media artist who is involved in performance art, sculpture and video.  Her current focus is on sculpture, fashion and gender.  She experiments with material, space and the body.  Having started as a psychology/anthropology major in college, she was interested in understanding human behavior.  She teaches at Palm Beach State College (Lake Worth Campus) and FAU.  She related,” I see my work as autobiographical narratives, as I am trying to understand myself and the world around me.  Being an artist gives you so much freedom!  You can express everything and your choices of mediums is so open-ended”.  Tufford went on to say, “Life is not a set path. Changing your mind is normal. If you love to create – GO DO IT!  Listen to yourself.  This is an endless journey.  Your art will change as you age and will change yourself.”

 

The audience asked questions, which included, “How do you know what art show to enter,  How do you deal with rejection, How do you decide whether to create art for yourself or art that is commercial, and Are there disadvantages to putting your work on the internet.”   The Rickie Report believes this is a terrific way to begin the dialogue of art as a business with these students.  We look forward to future panels where some of these issues will be discussed.  And we’d love to part of the dialogue!
