“Before The Storm” by Phoenix

 

 

“With this exhibition we are inviting viewers to slow down and enjoy the moment,” said Juliana Forero, Ph.D., BaCA’s gallery curator. “Phoenix has a great understanding of how light and timing work in photography. It’s evident that for some of the photographs exhibited, she waited for the ‘decisive moment’ to quote French humanist photographer Cartier-Bresson; working the composition in her brain and waiting for the ‘it’ that would make the photo worth the shot.”

 

“Early Morning Fog” by Phoenix

 

 

The photographer, who goes only by her first name, established a love of nature as a child during family vacations to national parks. As she matured, she developed an exceptional talent and a passion to help protect nature and wildlife. Phoenix tells The Rickie Report, “Being a nature photographer is a mystical experience, like a meditation of light — color, texture, structure, pattern, and composition — it awakens an inner peace and knowingness. With each image, it is my desire that viewers are inspired to love, cherish and protect the fragile beauty and wonder that is nature as they reconnect with that inner peace”.

 

“Grace” by Phoenix

 

 

She says, “For me, preserving nature and wilderness areas is not a luxury, but a necessity for the human spirit. In protecting the world’s nature and wildlife, the environment, we are really protecting the family of humanity. The importance of nature is more than a scientific necessity for creating air, clean water and producing food. It is a sacred necessity for healing and bringing peace to the human soul.”

 

“Twilight” by Phoenix

 

 

 

About Phoenix:

Phoenix has translated her depth of experience in leadership and community engagement for large, public-sector organizations into her career as an award-winning, fine art photographer as well as leader of art organizations participating in public art. For Phoenix the extraordinary beauty of nature and wilderness are a wonder. Attempting to fix them in time is her passion; photography is her art. Known for her painterly approach to composition, light, color and texture to capture the soul of her subjects in her photography, her works have been honored in numerous juried exhibitions, showcased in solo exhibitions, including Everglades National Park Gallery and Listowel, Ireland’s Olive Stack Gallery, featured in magazines and calendars worldwide and can be found in private collections in America and Europe. She is the recipient of several awards including the Broward Cultural Council’s Creative Investment Program Grant two times and Best in Landscape at the International Photography Juried Competition as well as the Olive Stack Gallery AIR. Professionally, Phoenix serves as president of National League of American Pen Women, Fort Lauderdale Branch and Project COAT and is a principal in the Innovative Public Art Group. A native Miamian, Phoenix lives and works in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

T i f f a n y      B e a s i

 

Tiffany Beasi is a professional painter, muralist and art director with 15 years experience. Tiffany has been drawing since childhood and holds a degree in graphic design from UCF. As an award-winning creative, she has generated commercial art for clients as Walt Disney World, Core Communities, Orlando Magic, Hard Rock International, Roadhouse Grill, Garden of Life and Cafe Tu Tu Tango.

 

In recent years, Tiffany has exhibited her work in several group art shows including House of Blues Folk Art Festival, Sun Fest and Aesop’s Fable Tables in West Palm Beach, Gibson Guitar Town in Orlando and Hard Rock Hotels Velvet Lounge. Her public art projects and murals span the state of Florida and are located in Coral Springs, St. Cloud, Palm Harbor, West Palm Beach, Orlando and Lake Worth. In the next few years, Tiffany hopes to expand her public art projects with the focus on environmental awareness themes.

 

 

 

” A Good Life” Mural by Tiffany Beasi

 

 

Tiffany tells The Rickie Report, “When I start with an idea, I am inspired by music, animals and the environment around me. I paint what I see and feel. I love to create things that not only I can grow from but that will inspire others as well. Most of the time, I use acrylic paint on canvas but I do create on functional materials like shoes, skateboards, surfboards, chairs, walls and guitars”.

Growing Is Key” by Tiffany Beasi

Tiffany says, “My vivid color scheme has developed over the years from being a Florida native. The Florida landscape is bright and drowned in dynamic colors. Absorbing this eye-catching landscape has inspired my work. I don’t really stick to one subject matter just like I don’t listen to the same music or eat the same things everyday. Life is to short to paint the same thing everyday. My style is creating. When I am done with a painting, I feel a sense of self-worth and accomplishment and have a happy smile on my face”.

 

 

Melissa   Mastrangelo 

 

Melissa Mastrangelo is originally from Upstate NY, but has found her true home here in South Florida. She graduated from Coastal Carolina University with a Bachelors in Fine Arts, and has been drawing and painting since childhood. Her work has been displayed at multiple local breweries and cafes, here in FL, most recently at Oceana Cafe in Tequesta.

 

 

 

Jelly Fish by Melissa Mastrangelo

 

 

Her love and passion for nature, especially the sea, is heavily reflected in her work. Her paintings mainly depict colorful sea creatures, waves, and tropical landscapes. Melissa is an avid scuba diver and paddleboarder, further adding inspiration from the natural beauty all around here. She prefers a more stylistic approach to painting, working off of photographs but adding her own personal touch. Use of vibrant colors and different textures (splatter/use of palette knife) is what makes her work unique. Her favorite medium is acrylic paint, but she also enjoys drawing with ink pens and watercoloring, which is how her zentangle creations are born.

Melissa also runs a “Paint and Sip” company, Mobile Masterpieces, in which she teaches acrylic on canvas. So to keep things interesting, she loves to paint on recycled guitars, decks, and boards as well. Most recently she has begun a “Porthole” series on used vinyl records with 3D printed frames.

New Faces And A New Generation At Well-Established Family Business, Heritage Art Galleries, Offer Original Art, Custom Framing, Art Restoration

With over three decades in the fine art & custom framing industry, Heritage Art Galleries is South Florida’s one-stop-shop for museum quality custom framing, fine art restoration, and the buying and selling of fine art. The new faces of the younger generation are ready to help, whether you are an art gallery, designer, decorator, artist, or simply looking for that perfect piece for your private collection. Visit their Tamarac, Florida gallery (minutes from Fort Lauderdale) to see why their customers refer to Heritage as “the hidden treasure.” Their extensive inventory is a treasure chest of rare and hard to find original oil and acrylic paintings, and limited edition lithographs and serigraphs at incredible prices.  The Rickie Report shares the details and some sneak peeks.

Heritage Art Galleries was founded in 1982 by Sam Vitro, a master art restorer from Italy. Services quickly expanded from custom framing and art restoration to acting as a national wholesale art and framing source for design professionals and the general public alike.

Gallery Interior

 

Two years ago, Sam’s family moved to Fort Lauderdale from Montreal to join his gallery and framing business. Having Claudio, Linda and Ian working full-time in the business for a couple of years prior to retirement would make the transition easier for Sam, who had been framing and restoring fine art for more than three decades. But unfortunately, Sam passed away unexpectedly and the family’s plans were accelerated.

“We were all devastated at his passing, of course,” said Claudio, “but since Sam had always envisioned passing on the business to my children as a legacy we have just continued it in his honor.” Claudio continues, “I see immense growth potential in Heritage. I still have a lot of hard work ahead of me and I am confident I will grow this business and create the legacy that Sam wanted.”

The Family:

 

 

 

Claudio Tomassone, Sam’s brother-in-law for 44 years, is a real estate broker and investor from Montreal, Canada. Through the years when he would visit his sister and Sam at their Hollywood home, he said he would spend every spare moment at the gallery. “I was always fascinated by art appraisal and restoration,” said Claudio. “Sam did amazing work and over the years I acquired a lot of knowledge about the business from art evaluation, restoration and museum quality framing.”

Joining Claudio in the business is his daughter, Linda Tomassone. The Montreal native has been involved in the artistic world her entire life; first as an actress, then in film production and screenwriting.

“I have a great deal of admiration for artists and their creative process since I have experienced these things myself,” Linda said. “I see each painting as a piece of the artist’s soul and story. When you connect to the essence of a painting the feeling is almost magical. I love experiencing that same feeling in discovering new artists and being part of the process when a customer connects to a painting themselves.” Linda handles the marketing and event planning for Heritage while also running her own business as a social media marketer.

In 2017, Linda married San Diego native Ian Jerrell. Ian has a background in the fashion industry and an eye for artistic composition, color selection and design. He worked as Sam’s apprentice to learn the art of custom framing for the past two years.

Expansion and Services:

In addition to working with Sam and learning the nuances of the business, the family spent the past year reconfiguring the gallery and workspace.

Heritage has been newly redesigned and now includes a beautiful art gallery/showroom. “We have created an inviting space here to hold art events, lectures, openings and exhibits,” said Claudio.

Ian, who is now the main custom framer at Heritage Art Galleries, said they offer a wide variety of services including custom and museum quality framing.  “We have affordable prices on framing, offer very high-end gallery services, stretch canvas, and offer the stretching and blocking of needlepoint. We also do custom mirrors,” he said.

 

Homme Couchée Et Femme Assie, After Pablo

The Art:

One of the challenges the family faced at the beginning of their journey was that through the years, Sam art collection grew into the thousands of artworks from the early 19th century till today.

“No formal inventory existed for this artwork,” said Ian, “We had to get them ready for sale and it took months to go through them.” Today, artists such as Tarkay, Erte and David Schluss, to name a few, are for sale and can be seen online on Heritage’s website and in the gallery, according to Ian.

Heritage has a big marketing effort underway according to Linda. “ We now have an Internet presence and following, and are working on building an online art shop.”

What kind of art does Heritage represent?

“We work mainly with contemporary art,” said Ian. ”Inventory includes oil, acrylic and mixed media originals and prints. When we look for new artists, we of course, look for something that speaks to us, but mostly originality.”

“Day After Mardi Gras” by Lois Perdue

Thinking Ahead:

We have been making our way throughout the South Florida arts community meeting artists, others involved in the arts, and checking out events to make sure we are always current with what’s happening.”

“The art market in South Florida seems to be booming,” said Claudio. “Everywhere you look there seems to be an art fair or exhibit. These are very exciting times for the art world. We are also looking at the Canadian market. It is full of amazing untapped talent and we are looking for originality, something new and fresh that the art world has not seen yet.”

Claudio continues to promote the business and use the sales skills he has acquired over the years in real estate to acquire new clientele for Heritage Galleries. Future plans call to open a second location or move to a larger location as soon as they outgrow the current space.

Claudio, Ian and Linda all agree that “Uncle Sam” is with them in spirit! “We feel his energy in everything we do,” said Claudio.

Linda added that it is a bonus to be able to work with her father and husband. “What an amazing experience this is,” she said. “I feel blessed. We are a great team. With our individual strengths we are an unstoppable force!”
