Fundraising is a big part of WITVA. One of our biggest fundraisers is the LYNN TRAVIS STENDER FUND that produces an outstanding luncheon every year. This annual luncheon takes all year to plan by a committee of fourteen exceptional ladies and is indeed a day that is never to be missed. They always strive to make each year more exciting then the last. It is truly a wonderful experience to share with all of your friends at WITVA. There is no way to beat having a really fabulous day while you are supporting such a worthy cause.

 

Annual Spring Celebration of High School Art is a month long exhibition at SUGAR SAND PARK, honoring Palm Beach County high school artists and their teachers. This concludes with an Awards Reception attended by the students, their families and their teachers.  A local dignitary gives the keynote address stressing the importance of ART in the public schools.
The Wonderful World of Art program introduces kindergarten and first grade public school students to the Masters. Our members work with teachers to present artworks and guide students in discussions about them.

 

 

Our HOSPITALART program is comprised of WITVA members who design and paint canvases, which are then donated to not-for-profit organizations such as hospitals, community centers and shelters for abused women and children. Since 1999, more than 2000 canvases have been donated in the Miami/Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties in South Florida.

 

 

VISIONS IN ART is a slide presentation lecture, showing the variety of artistic disciplines that comprise the Women In The Visual Arts. It is a presentation that is offered, free of charge, to any organization that wishes to present an interesting and educational program. A donation to our College Scholarship would be greatly appreciated.

 

 

WITVA ART SHOWS take place a minimum of four times a year, with ONE OPEN SHOW that includes both male and female non-member artists. Prior venues have included: The American Orchid Society in Delray Beach, the Delray Beach Library, Palm Beach Gardens City Hall, the Highland Beach Library, Sugar Sand Park in Boca Raton, the Coral Springs Museum, the David Posnack JCC in Davie, the Nathan Rosen Gallery in Boca Raton and many more.

The Outside the Box2 biennial event in 2014, featured installations by 37 artists from throughout Florida, attracted hundreds of art enthusiasts, and was covered extensively in local and Southeast Florida media.

 

 
The call for entries has just been released (deadline of November 1, 2015). Artists wishing to apply may find the application at: www.whitespacecollection.com.

 

Thirty five artists with the best proposals will be selected, and this call is offering even more in Best in Show monetary prizes. This temporary outdoor art happening will take place April 1 & 2, 2016, as part of the closing weekend festivities of Whitespace.

 

 

 

 
The distinctive and alternative format of the exhibit asks artists to propose a temporary work, suitable for outdoors that will respond creatively to the site, or be interactive in nature. The installations should interact with the unique landscape & outdoor environment, ranging from large-scale sculptures, interactive installations, inflatables, video art, performances, and more.

One of the most talked about works was a video installation by Cat Del Buono, titled “Swimming upstream.” Many onlookers did not realize they were not looking at a real pool of water in the ground. Video art by Cat Del Buono will be featured in Whitespace’s next annual exhibit which will open in November 2015. Please check the website www.whitespacecollection.com for up-to-date seasonal programming.

First Encounters With Art – Part Two

Welcome to Part II of “First Encounters With Art”, as we continue to look at ways to teach and be role models for future art appreciators and future artists!   The Rickie Report invited Caren Hackman to investigate how to best introduce young people to art experiences and at what age. This is the second section of a two part article, for which Caren consulted with three experts. We are grateful to Glenn Tomlinson and Lyda Barrera and Christina Barrera for taking the time to share their experiences with our readers. Caren Hackman is a fine artist, graphic designer and author of “Graphic Design Exposed”. We hope you will share these articles with friends, family and neighbors. Let’s Keep The Arts Alive!

 

 

First Encounters With Art

Part II

 

Glenn Tomlinson has served as the William Randolph Hearst Curator of Education at the Norton Museum of Art since January, 2001. (www.norton.org) Prior to that time he worked in museum education at the Philadelphia Museum of Art and at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts. He lives in Jupiter with his family. 
Lyda Barrera has taught elementary school art in the Palm Beach County School District for 25 years. She and her daughter, Christina Barrera, also work privately with students to prepare them for auditions at Bak Middle School of the Arts (http://www.bakmsoa.com) and Dreyfoos School of the Arts (http://www.awdsoa.org).

 

Christina Barrera, a professional artist, is an Undergraduate Admissions Counselor at the School of Visual Arts in New York City (http://www.sva.edu). She spent two years working as a Museum Educator at the Walters Art Museum in Baltimore, Maryland (https://www.thewalters.org).

 

 

CH: What kind of programs does the Norton Museum have for young children?

GT: Every Saturday, from 10:30am-12:30pm, the Norton Museum of Art now offers a program called Family Studio http://www.norton.org/familystudio. Children, ages 5-12, and accompanying grown-ups participate in a gallery tour and a related art workshop. Because of demand for the 25 spaces in each week’s class, pre-registration on our website is required www.norton.org, but Museum admission is free to all Palm Beach County residents every Saturday.  The expansion of Family Studio and Free Saturdays are made possible thanks to the generosity of Damon and Katherine Mezzacappa.

At particular times throughout the year – especially during the summer months and during school breaks – we offer DIY Art Projects at Art After Dark http://www.norton.org/artafterdark .  These programs, on select Thursdays from 6-8 pm are drop-in art projects related to special exhibitions and collection themes.  On Thursday nights during the summer we have served over 100 children in these programs!  Similar projects with a Chinese theme are offered at our Moon Festival and Chinese New Year Celebrations.

Like Family Studio programs we want DIYs to be an opportunity for children to explore, play, make and learn with their elders who visit the Museum with them, whether they are parents, grandparents, aunt and uncles, whomever.  We find that the intergenerational activity is a very special part of the process.

For families that visit at other times, we offer ArtCards  in English and Spanish that suggest simple looking activities that children and accompanying adults can enjoy together.  Prompts can be about finding certain animals in the Chinese art galleries and learning why they are important, or looking across the collections for works that “tell stories,” “look like a dream,” “use warm or cool colors,” or “make you smile.”  Simple prompts like these can inspire closer looking and great conversations among family members.

Beyond our family programs, we also serve school and summer camp audiences http://www.norton.org/school-tours  or http://www.norton.org/summercamp . These begin with children as young as 5 (kindergarten age).  While the majority of school programs are single visits, the Museum hosts Norton School Partnerships that introduce young students to art through multiple visit programs.

Our PACE program http://www.norton.org/pace serves children as young as 5 as well.  Through this program we work with community organizations in underserved neighborhoods around Palm Beach County to provide quality arts education to hundreds of children year ‘round.

CH: At what age do you believe that it is appropriate to introduce young people to art?

GT: The sooner the better!  Young children delight in discovering new things and art has so much to offer in this regard.  Their great capacity for imagination can also spur terrific conversations with just a single question or prompt from an older person. And when parents or caretakers stay engaged with the child’s responses, a really memorable experience can take shape.  The validation and encouragement of an older person can turn a single Museum visit into a lifelong interest.

 

 

CH: How do you approach the introduction to art? Example: through gallery shows and explanations or through hands on projects?

GT: Both of these avenues can be exciting and creative. Through tours we strive to make the experience an interactive one (for all ages) so rather than having staff and docents “explain” the art on view, the children discover the works, describe what they see and what they think about what they see.  These age-appropriate conversations about artworks are much more fulfilling and impactful than just passive listening. Our talented Museum docents guide the conversation and add important information about the work or artist as appropriate to the goals of the lesson and the students’ age and interest.

 

 

CH: Are there basic principles to which beginners should always be introduced as a first exposure or lesson? Or do you work with exhibits that are available in the galleries?

GT: There are so many points of entry into art.  One of the ways that we like to work is by developing literacy skills and critical thinking skills.  Exploring the elements of art (line, color, shape/form, space, texture) is a good way to help develop a vocabulary for looking at art (and everything else, by the way!).  Then, by discussing how the elements of art work together to create composition, for example, you exercise a child’s critical thinking skills.  Take it one level further, by looking at a second artwork, and comparing the second to the first… learning can happen in such meaningful ways through this kind of process.  And we can use a wide variety of artworks for these lessons, so we do use special exhibitions and the collection.

ARTNADO Invites Local Art Associations And Art-Related Non-Profits To Receive FREE Booth Space- Plus New Artist Discounts

Artistic Synergy Inc., through it’s inaugural show ARTNADO, has established two main goals. The first is to provide a robust indoor environment designed to showcase the artists and their work in ways that cannot be accomplished with the traditional outdoor tent shows. The second is to help promote the arts in Southeast Florida.  The Rickie Report shares the details for Art Associations and Art-Related Non-Profits Organizations to receive FREE 10 x 10 booth spaces. Individual artists who are part of any Non-Profit or Art Association taking booth space will be entitled to a discount on their OWN booth! Artists who have taken part in any Art Marketing Seminar with Rickie Leiter are also eligible for a discount on their own booth space!  Don’t miss  the August 1st cut off for a 15% general discount on other booth spaces! More details will follow about the Student Art Contest.  We remind our readers that ARTNADO and Artistic Synergy Inc. is a different entity from Art Synergy/Art Palm Beach.

 

 

 

artnado-ad-1-30-15

 

 

 Jack Busa, Chief Creative Executive, is announcing a gift of FREE 10×10 space for all area Art Associations and Art related Non-Profits.  He tells The Rickie Report, “This will enable your organization to inform the public about what you do, in addition to offering membership opportunities and displaying examples of past and current events. Your members will be able to display but not sell their work from your space. Because ARTNADO is already offering the lowest price per square foot for juried art shows, we understand that artists are concerned about their expenses. Therefore, any member of an organization that takes advantage of this offer, will be given a 10% rebate on the price of the exhibition space they choose to display and sell their art.”

 

Any artists who has taken part in an Art Marketing Seminar involving Rickie Leiter, Publisher of The Rickie Report will be eligible for a 15% rebate on individual booth space.  Fill out the ZAPP and then send a separate email to Artistic Synergy Inc telling them you have been a participant.

 

Jack explains, “Since all applications need to be submitted through ZAPP there is no provisions for a two-tier pricing structure. Hence a refund check will be issued ARTNADO’s  move-in date on November 13th.”

 

This offer, when combined with the options of either a 10×10, 10×20 and even a 20×20 “personal gallery” exhibition area, offers an unprecedented exposure for most of the area’s artist.

 

UPCOMING STUDENT ART CONTEST

 

 In addition, a Student Art Contest will be formally announced soon. If you know  any young artists who would like to get an early start, the information is available on our website artisticsynergy.org.

 

 

ARTNADO is looking for partners to be Drop-Off Centers for Student Artwork around the County.  Please email or call to make arrangements.  You will be included in future advertising, marketing and promotions!

 

 For more information send an e-mail to artisticsynergy@mail.com requesting a space and  you will be called to confirm the details.

If you have any questions, please call  561-557-8741 and ask to speak directly to Jack Busa.
