This beautiful space (previously in Port Salerno) now in downtown Stuart has developed a very popular new class! Diane and Asia regularly offer mosaic classes as well as sell mosaic art and do commissions. An all-day workshop on the basics of mosaics is offered periodically in the studio, but this new class ‘Mosaic Jewelry Pendants’ can be ‘taken on the road’.

 

 


Attention activity directors! Your community can have Diane and Asia come to your clubhouse and present this fun three hour class where students will learn to make beautiful mosaic pendants. Painting classes are fun but how about something new and different to offer the members of your club? These talented mosaic ladies will come to your clubhouse with all the required materials and run the class.

 

 

 

 

Pendants can be done with glass, tiles, beads, china, charms – the options are endless. It is fun, easy and the student goes home with one or two mosaic pendants. The fee is $45 per student. Minimum student number is 10 and maximum number of students per class is 20. (The class can be conducted more than once if your group has more than 20 members that sign up).

 

 


The next class on the calendar is April 5th (1-4pm) at Christine’s Coastal Treasures, Home Depot Plaza, US 1, Jensen Beach. Christine’s is a coastal home décor (and treasure) shop with a great classroom space in the back. Christine teaches chalk painting (bring your small furniture piece – and learn to make your own chalk paint!) Find furniture painting and other art classes on Christine’s website www.christinescoastaltreasures.com.

 

Register for this upcoming Mosaic Jewelry class on the website or call Diane to discuss hosting a class for your group.

 

 


If your group is looking for something artistic to try that everyone will enjoy, please consider this class! We are available to run this class at our location or yours.

 

 

Diane tells The Rickie Report, “Locals, we are here all summer! If you are scheduling for next year, we are happy to take a reservation for a class in the upcoming 2018 season”.

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.

Studio Space for Classes, Workshops and Working On Your Own

 

Shortly after moving in, Diane and Asia threw a ‘Grand Opening celebration” the highlight was a student art show. The many students that enjoy working in the studio over the last three years brought and displayed their artwork . There was plenty of art (purely for art’s sake) but the functional mosaic art…coasters, trays, lazy susans, house numbers…wow! The variety of mosaic art that has been created in the studio over the last 4 years is amazing!

 

Functional Mosaic Artwork

Diane has enhanced her mosaic self-education at the Union Square Art Cooperative in NYC and at the Institute of Mosaic Art, Berkeley CA. She has attended workshops with Martin Cheek, Mireille Swinnen, Michelle Petno and Jeff Halverson (some of the best known local and international mosaic artists). Diane’s portfolio is as varied as the application of mosaic art can be.  She is experienced in stained glass, smelt and picassiette. Diane has applied her art to garden items, upcycled art (mosaicking found items to give them new life), commissions for clients (address plaques, store signs), and has often explored her mosaic artistic voice.

Also instructing at the studio is Asia Booth, an award winning mosaic artist of tremendous talent. An avid ‘gamer’, Asia specializes in video game themed art, most of her work features extremely tiny pieces (all hand cut). Asia’s passion for drawing and unique mosaic design is reflected in her art. Her gamer pieces were featured in “A Fractured Perspective” a gallery showing by Luna Mosaics of Orlando. Asia teaches “Intro to Mosaic” and is available during studio hours for students. Asia and Diane recently both placed in the highly competitive Annual McMow Art Glass completion.

The very popular ‘Intro to Mosaic’ day-long workshop provides the basics in mosaic techniques and you go home with your 8”x8’ mosaic wall art. ‘Intro workshop’s are conducted several times a month.  You can also take advantage of the ‘Studio Hours’ where you can work on projects at your own pace. There is a reasonable fee for studio hours (which includes use of the tools and materials in the studio).

Special classes by mosaic artists and artists of other disciplines are being scheduled for 2017. Francesca will be presenting an ‘Opus and Andamento Workshop’. Opus and andamento are time honored techniques used in traditional mosaics. Francesca will review traditional applications and introduce a modern approach, discuss tessellation, patterns, negative/positive space and the student will put this instruction into practice on their own project under Francesca’s guidance. This is an excellent opportunity for advanced beginners or intermediate mosaic artists to delve into some of the more advanced techniques of the art.
The studio will be participating in the St. Lucie County Rock and Gem Club Show at the Martin County Fairgrounds on October 22-23. They are particularly excited to be featured as the “Artist in Residence” at the Ground Floor Farm of Stuart, where their art will be featured for the months of December and January. The studio will present a special stepping stone workshop during their residency.

The Mandel JCC is proud to offer a one-of-a- kind tour around the historically beautiful Hutchinson Island! Our day will begin at the Elliot Museum, which was built by Sterling Elliot’s proud son Harmon as a tribute to his father. The tour will give guests time to travel through the mind of this creative genius. Sterling was a famous inventor who held more than 125 patents in his lifetime! Some of his inventions include the first knot tying machine, the Elliot addressing machine, the pneumatic tire, the unequal turning of the front wheels or the steering knuckle- which was a critical element in the success of the automobile.

 

 

In June of 2012, the museum merged with the Classic Boat and Maritime Museum. This will give patrons the opportunity to not only appreciate Elliot’s work, but to also see a wonderful collection of classical boats, boat models along with appreciating local maritime history.

 

 

After a tour of the Elliot, we will have the opportunity to visit Gilbert’s Bar House of Refuge. Enjoy picturesque views of the Florida coast while visiting one the oldest structures in Martin County. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the House of Refuge is one of ten houses of refuge along Florida’s east coast. These “houses” were havens for sailors and travelers who were shipwrecked along the coastline. According to the House of Refuge website, these establishments were, “run by the United States Lifesaving Service, the Houses played a critical role in a time when sailing ships dominated the world commerce.”

Lampworking is an art form which became widely practiced in Murano, Italy in the 14th century. Lampworking is the art of melting glass rods with a torch and creating on a steel mandrel small works of art. These pieces are decorated with thinner stringer pieces of glass and when finished annealed in a kiln for strength and durability.
