Third Annual Summer In Paradise Transforms West Palm Beach Waterfront Into Artistic Storybook Setting

The City of West Palm Beach will celebrate the return of its popular Summer in Paradise (S.I.P) annual celebration beginning June 1 through August 31, 2017. This free, summer-long promotion will transport residents and visitors into a colorful collection of classic tales and treasured life-lessons along the waterfront. New elements include the debut of Aesop’s Tables, a whimsical art installation featuring 25 picnic tables painted to depict one of Aesop’s fables. A direct tie to Mayor Jeri Muonio’s pledge declaring West Palm Beach as a City of Kindness, the storybook setting provides an opportunity for all to connect, explore local art, share their own stories and enjoy family friendly activities on the West Palm Beach waterfront.  The Rickie Report shares the details. ENJOY!  

 

 

 

 

 

NEW ART INSTALLATION ON THE WATERFRONT
Presented by the City of West Palm Beach Art in Public Places, Aesop’s Tables celebrates the talents of local artists and features 25 painted picnic tables illustrating a timeless Aesop fable, such as The Boy Who Cried Wolf, Tortoise and the Hare, and more.

The summer long outdoor art installation makes its waterfront debut on Thursday, June 1, 2017 during the S.I.P kickoff at Clematis by Night. Additional programming for the art installation will include nightly music and pop-up performances, storytelling, poetry readings, games and interactive programming all summer long and a weekly Aesop’s Tables Artist Showcase at the Waterfront Visitor Center.

Meet The Northwood Industrial District Artists

Opening their studios to the public:

 

 

o Dave Teal, a figurative artist who is a long-time resident of Old Northwood where he both designed and built his home. Teal is  a figurative artist whose work emphasizes color, shape and the use of space to suggest images and ideas. He works in painting and drawing, as well as collage and three-dimensional forms. Teal’s work has been exhibited widely in the Northeast as well as in South Florida. For these various exhibitions his work has been selected by noteworthy curators from museums such as the Guggenheim, the Whitney and the Museum of Modern Art in New York City. And by curators from influential galleries in Miami including Frederic Snitzer Gallery

o Elizabeth Hutchinson, also known as Melo, was born and raised in South Florida. She attended Palm Beach State College for Graphic design in 2009. It was there that she was reintroduced to her love of the arts. In 2011 she began curating shows in order to shed light on the underground urban art and music scene. “My surroundings, love of fine art, and culture have helped shape my artistic identity. I describe my work as instinctive. Rarely do I sketch out subject matter or plan a color scheme. I love to work through the mishaps that occur when things are unplanned. Painting is a give-and-take process for me. Each piece is a problem or conversation that I’m working out on canvas”.

o James Sagui has been a professional woodworker, sculptor, and furniture designer/maker since the age of 15. He studied at Boston University’s Program in Artisanry. After 20 years working in Boston, in 2003 he established his workshop in West Palm Beach and was one of the first artists to work in the Northwood Industrial District. His studio furniture and sculptures are collected worldwide including permanent collections at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. Currently represented by various galleries in Florida including Arthouse 429 in Northwood, James has been a woodworking Instructor at the Armory Art Center, West Palm Beach and currently hosts life drawing sessions at his studio three times a week. A member of the International Furniture Society, Sculptor.org as well as other professional organizations, James has also shown at Art Basel, Miami, SCOPE and Art Palm Beach.

o Liz Ghitta Segall, was born in Canada, raised in New York and spent most of her life in Paris, France. A painter since childhood, she studied with Bernard Pfreim, Richard Pousette-Dart and Julien Levy at Sarah Lawrence College and at L’ecole Des Beaux Arts in Paris. She established her studio in the Northwood Industrial District along with her husband, James Sagui, over ten years ago and is represented by various Florida galleries including Arthouse 429 in Northwood Village. Currently an Instructor of Abstract Painting at the Society of Four Arts, Palm Beach, FL and at the Jupiter Island Beach Club in Hobe Sound, her work is collected internationally and has been shown at Red Dot Art Fair, Miami, Art Palm Beach among other venues.

o Sam Perry, a noted artist who grew up in Northwood and focuses on abstract and the human figure.  He is now one of the area’s most accomplished artists. He achieved success as an abstract artist in galleries in Miami, New York and elsewhere. Then, in the wake of 9/11, Sam chose to focus on the human figure. “It was a paradigm shift for me”, he explained. “I became more aware of humanity and its frailty”. Sam is an active proponent of the arts in this community. A member of the faculty of the Armory Art Center since 1987, he is now the longest-serving person there. He has taught art at Florida Atlantic University, Palm Beach Atlantic University and Dreyfoos School of the Arts, in addition to private lessons. As an independent curator Sam has produced exhibitions at Palm Beach Atlantic University as well as in Northwood at Harold’s Coffee Lounge and, before that, at My Coffee House. He has an uncanny knack for discovering the worthy yet overlooked artists in our midst. Sam received all of his education in Florida. ” I like to paint because it connects me to my community”. Sam added, “I think West Palm Beach can become even more significant in the arts. The Norton is growing, and so is the population of sophisticated art-lovers”.

o Terre Rybovich, an artist born and raised in old Northwood known for her unconventional drawings.  She is a daughter of Tommie Rybovich, who designed and built world-renowned boats in Northwood. Rybovich herself has drawn since she could hold a crayon. Largely self-taught as an artist, she earned her degrees in politics and economics from NYU and the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Her first career was in social justice philanthropy. “Why do I draw?” smiles Rybovich. “As the world’s great drawers will tell you, drawing is the most direct way to perceive the world around us.” The master charcoal artist continued, “I definitely don’t see drawing as just a preliminary step to a painting.” Her drawings have been exhibited throughout South Florida, receiving critical renown. Rybovich’s “…large-scale drawings are intriguing, even if difficult to decode,” wrote the Palm Beach Post. “Fantastic reveries…skillful handling of the charcoal medium.” Another Post review praised, “Mysterious pieces…hints of hieroglyphics and a strong sense of the ethereal…an artist whose work always intrigues and puzzles—in a good way.” Now working in the Northwood Industrial District Arts, Rybovich feels deep satisfaction at the sight of the neighborhood reawakening as a creative focal point.

In addition, Jeffrey Ciociola from Art Gallery Modern, who has recently moved to become the newest tenant of the Northwood Industrial District, will be displaying over 500 original pieces of modern, contemporary and outsider art.

“The art community in the Northwood Industrial District is growing and eager to share their work with art enthusiasts and the art movement happening in West Palm Beach,” said Jon Ward, West Palm Beach Community Redevelopment Agency Executive Director. “The open studios tour gives the public an opportunity to discover these local artists and provides a sneak peek into their work process and environment.”

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.

“Unconditionally Dogs” Works By Skip Hartzell Opens At Arthouse 429 December 10

ARTHOUSE429 invites you to “Unconditionally Dogs” by artist, Skip Hartzell. The Opening Reception takes place on Thursday, December 10th.  Don’t go expecting dog portraits!  His renditions are of familiar imagery, often drawn from memory. In a series of large works on paper, Hartzell employs his intuitive sense of spirited compositions as he builds up layers of Flashe (a vinyl-based professional grade matte paint) and graphite to create the drawing and then he fills in the blanks. Hartzell’s sculptures are just as spirited and intuitively created.  Skip is a longtime supporter of no-kill animal rescues and has been a dedicated sponsor of Big Dog Ranch Rescue. During opening night, Hartzell has generously offered to donate specially selected dog sculptures to anyone that donates a minimum of $250 to Big Dog Ranch Rescue. Additionally, a generous portion of all sales of his other work will be donated to the Ranch. The Rickie Report shares the details and some sneak peeks.

Opening Thursday, December 10th, Skip Hartzell is showing inventive new depictions of his best friends. Paintings, sculpture and works on paper will be on display for the first time at ARTHOUSE 429 in the exhibition titled, Unconditionally Dogs.  Cocktails and hors d’oeuvres will be served at the Opening Reception from 6:30 -8:30 pm.

“Waiting” by Skip Hartzell

100% of the sale of selected sculptures & 40% of all other sales of Hartzell’s work will go to Big Dog Ranch Rescue.  Big Dog Ranch Rescue is the largest no-kill dog rescue in the Southeastern United States. Hartzell is a longtime supporter of no-kill animal rescues and has been a dedicated sponsor of Big Dog Ranch Rescue. He and his wife have adopted several dogs from the organization.

 

Bigger Muse 60x42 Skip Hartzell

“Bigger Muse” by Skip Hartzell

 

Described by art critic Bruce Helander as “This gifted painter’s delightful new works are inventive depictions of man’s best friend, Hartzell channels his passion for canines into a must-see body of work. These dogs far transcend their chosen form through truly impressive style and technique. The passion of the artist and the love of dogs in unlimited configurations are joined to make a fascinating presentation of pictures with an obvious aristocratic appearance and a recognizable common denominator.”

 

 

Expecting 22x30 SkipHartzell

“Expecting” by Skip Hartzell

 

 

 

 

Hartzell’s work is definitely not dog portraits; they are renditions of familiar imagery, often times drawn from memory. In a series of large works on paper, Hartzell employs his intuitive sense of spirited compositions as he builds up layers of Flashe (a vinyl-based professional grade matte paint) and graphite to create the drawing and then he more or less fills in the blanks. In other works, notably his sculptural arrangements, Hartzell has developed a successful formula of papier-mâché mix coated with aqua resin, and often supported with a fusion of diluted cement and an inside wire armature that takes on an abstract shape.

 

 

 

Bubba 60x42 Skip Hartzell

“Bubba” by Skip Hartzell

 

 

“Dogs are always in the moment”. Hartzell said. “Although nothing in life has held my attention or has been more fascinating to me than dogs, my art is about more than that. My work is about form, movement, color and texture. The dogs are a recognizable image that permits me to explore my emotions, passions and sentiments. Making art for me is intuitive; it is very much like walking my dogs. I am always excited and waiting to see where the dogs want to go.”

 

It's a Very Fine Day 60x48 Skip Hartzell

“It’s A Very Fine Day” by Skip Hartzell

 

 

 

Skip is a longtime supporter of no-kill animal rescues and has been a dedicated sponsor of Big Dog Ranch Rescue. He and his wife have adopted several dogs from the organization. During opening night, Hartzell has generously offered to donate specially selected dog sculptures to anyone that donates a minimum of $250 to Big Dog Ranch Rescue. Additionally, a generous portion of all sales of his other work will be donated to the Ranch.
