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.

In addition to Gaia’s Treasures, Custom Creations and Sophia Stern Designs, the JCC will also have a beautiful collection of rare orchids. Millers Way Orchids has a complete selection of unusual and colorful varieties to complement your lifestyle and décor. For any orchid lover out there, they will know that this flower is almost unreal in its perfection. There are about 208 species of orchids that are native to the United States and there is no other flower that looks quite like this. In addition, these flowers tend to bloom for a great deal longer than most flowers lasting from two to three months.

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.

Norton Museum

 

On this cultural day trip, participants will have the opportunity to visit the renowned Norton Museum in West Palm Beach. The museum itself was founded in 1941, by Ralph Hubbard Norton and his wife Elizabeth. The couple had a taste for the fine arts and spent many years building a personal collection of paintings and sculptures. Splitting their time between Chicago and West Palm Beach, the couple decided to move to South Florida permanently and share their private collection with the public.

.
Zachary Rapaport, a senior at Dreyfoos School of the Arts, was distinguished as one of 170 emerging young artists by the National YoungArts Foundation, a talent-based scholarship program for high school and college students. The program recognized him with the Merit Award and Finalist Award for achievement in visual arts. 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.
