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.

“Collaboration: African Diaspora Exhibition” At the Center For Creative Education Offers Unique Stories Through Eyes, Hands And Lips Of The Artists Themselves

“Collaboration: African Diaspora Exhibition” at the Center for Creative Education is being produced by A.T.B Fine Artists & Designers LLC.  Opening on September 10th with a Public Reception, “Collaboration” will continue through October 21st with lectures, art demonstrations, artists talks and more. The focus is to show another aspect of art & culture in a community that many people in Palm Beach County have yet to experience. This year’s group includes artists who are originally from, reside in or are represented in the State of Florida. We believe that with the partnership of CCE & A.T.B. the “Diaspora” will be another great success.  The Rickie Report shares the details of the Exhibition, a few sneak peeks and how to RSVP.  Some of these events are FREE, but you MUST RSVP!

“Contemplating” by Michel Basquiat

 

 

 

Their vision is to have an African Diaspora (The African diaspora was the movement of Africans and their descendants to places throughout the world – predominantly to the Americas). Trina and Anthony Burks explain,”  The concept of art itself does not have to be in reflection of the diaspora”.

Curators of “Collaboration”, Anthony Burks Sr. and Trina Slade burks

“This is the third installment of the exhibition. Originally created in 2013, the African Diaspora had displayed a vast variety of artists from around the country. We have achieved this not simply hanging art on a wall or sitting it on a pedestal. It was accomplished by unique story telling through the eyes, hands and lips of the artists themselves”.

Artwork by Anthony Burks Sr.

 

 

Anthony Burks Sr.

Anthony Burks is one of the most unique conceptual artists in America. His paintings mix colored pencils, watercolor, pen, and ink, and are characterized by his unusual choice of colors. Whether depicting birds, animals, or people, Anthony is able to convey the intertwining of their beauty and their strength. He chooses his subjects because of what they mean to him, and he tells their stories through his combination of realistic forms, bright colors, and abstract images. Anthony is also co-curator of the exhibition.

Dr. Jonathan Knight’s mission is to provide the highest quality of fine art available, share his creative vision with all interested viewers and collectors, and continue educating and informing art enthusiasts about collecting, supporting and appreciating fine art of all kinds.

Artwork by Addonis Parker

Addonis Parker

Addonis Parker is a Miami artist who was nicknamed “Giant” as a child. His 6’8″ frame, is slightly intimidating at first. But his larger than life paintings speak volumes of this gentle teddy bear of a man. “I am a student of creativity and expression. My life is simply an open book to the inner world of our urban fabrics but the key to the underworld of self-truth, through the eyes of Addonis.”

The hot new place to be this season is located in an Historic FEC Train Depot building in the heart of the City of Lake Worth, Florida. The 14,000 square foot Benzaiten Center for Creative Arts is attracting hundreds of interested people to its brand new hot shop. With three glory holes and two furnaces they have been scheduling back-to-back classes ever since they reopened in October.

Throughout the summer, Founder, JB Berkow along with Anita Holmes, Executive Director and Rick Eggert, Creative Director have worked hard to design an impressive line up of programming for the upcoming season.  They have four outstanding, world renowned Visiting Glass Artists coming to the center in 2016. These events will be three-day affairs. Thursday nights will be a private sit-down-dinner party where the artist will talk about their processes and inspirations. Friday nights will be a gallery opening centering around the visiting artist’s works and featuring two dimensional works by local artists.

Finally, Saturday will be an afternoon demonstration by the visiting artist. Never before has there been this type of opportunity for Palm Beach County residents to meet and greet four of the top glass artists in the world and have the rare chance to learn about their processes, inspirations and actually see them creating. Visit the Center’s website to view the details and to register and pay for the Thursday and Friday night events.

 

 

 

 

The first of these events will coincide with the Lake Worth Art Synergy Event, which the Benzaiten Center is hosting for the second year in a row. Last year they had 32 local artists and organizations taking part in a mini-art-fair within the empty 5,000 square foot space of the building that will eventually house their fine art metal foundry. This year the highlight and kick-off to the event will be world-renowned glass artist, Laura Donefer, conducting a glass-blowing demo from 4pm to 6pm on Saturday, January 23. After that, will be an Art Synergy Awards Ceremony. Festivities will continue until 8pm with live music, light nibbles, wine and beer and is open to the public free of charge.

Every second Wednesday of the month they hold a Hump of the Hump Happy Hour from 5:30pm – 7:30pm in the evening featuring a glass blowing demo, wine, beer, and live entertainment. There are several fundraisers planned for the 2016 season including their signature event, ‘Glasstronomique,’ a ‘Casablanca Casino Night,’ and a cocktail party in the home of a major glass collector. They will also hold a community ‘Summer Solstice’ party in June. Again, check  website for dates, times and registration details.

About The Center For Creative Education:

 

The Center for Creative Education is an educational nonprofit that strengthens the presence of the arts in the classrooms of Palm Beach County, Florida. Today, our Teaching Artists work with thousands of children in schools and after-school programs throughout the County, as well as at our Center in West Palm Beach, Florida. A majority of the students we work with are considered “at risk” of educational failure. The arts-based programs we provide are a very powerful way to improve these students’ chances of success; both academically and personally. CCE also works with advanced students who benefit from the opportunity to delve deeply into subjects through the arts and develop their creative thinking and problem solving skills. At our Center, in the Northwood Village section of West Palm Beach,we provide arts instruction for children and adults, we host art shows in our Gallery and serve as a base for many community activities. It’s also home to our administrative offices.  For more information: www.cceflorida.org
