MAX TOTH    2014-2015

The primal urges of Toth’s line based figures fuel their games of

conquest, loyalty, power, and pecking order.  Each individual

seeks their place within the group as well as in the world. This

project depicts King of the Raft, a battle fought to be ruler of a

floating,  bird-shit-covered, putting-green kingdom. The new

ruler revels in their status, until they too are overthrown and

the struggle for power continues. They move in a writhing pack,

roles and authority shifting, leaders crowned, usurped,

swallowed, and replaced. In a world where games are played

in an attempt to defy limitations – a raft becomes a kingdom!

Armory Art Center Offers HolidayFest & Studio Sale for the Whole Family Nov. 22-23

This year the Armory Art Center’s annual sale is re-named HolidayFest & Studio Sale to reflect the added family-friendly activities. It will take place on November 22 and 23 from 10 AM to 7 PM. The Studio Sale features unique, handmade items created by Armory faculty and students. Attendees can find ceramics, jewelry, sculpture, glass and more at reasonable prices. The event will offer a FREE children’s workshop – a fun activity for kids and that gives parents time to shop. Offered both days from 1:00-2:00 p.m. for children ages 5-12. Children will make holiday crafts with instruction from our Armory Art Center faculty. On Saturday night at 7:00 p.m, after the sale, the Armory will be airing the film “Elf” and serving refreshments. The film is free and open to the public. Seating will be provided. The Rickie Report shares the details and some sneak peeks. When we buy from local artisans ( who are of international and national renown as well as emerging artists), we are doing our part for the local economy on so many different levels!

FREE MOVIE – OPEN TO THE PUBLIC

 

On Saturday night at 7:00 p.m, after the sale, the Armory will be airing the film “Elf” and serving refreshments. The film is free and open to the public. Seating will be provided.
“The biggest benefit of doing holiday shopping at the Armory’s HolidayFest & Studio Sale is that the items are all one-of-a-kind and handmade. There is a story behind their creation and purpose. The fact that no one else anywhere is going to have the same pair of earrings that you bought from an artist is a nice thought. Gifts mean a little more when people take the time to match a unique item to someone’s personality,” says Director of Ceramics, Mark Walnock.

Many of the artists stand at their tables so they are able to interact with interested customers. They can discuss their work, procedures, and techniques with them during the sale. Some artists may continue working on pieces while at their table so attendees can see the process.

Lisa Johnson, Director of Jewelry and Metalsmithing, says “Instructors and students enrolled in Jewelry courses will collaborate as a studio during the Holiday Fest this year to sell and exhibit hand-made jewelry. Jewelry items will include necklaces, rings, bracelets, and earrings fabricated primarily out of sterling silver/precious metals.”

Mark Walnock expressed warm holiday sentiments when he said, “With your purchase you are supporting a good cause as a portion of the money raised at the event goes to funding the Armory and its programs.”

The Creativity of Every Day Objects by Ray Gross Goes Worldwide

Ray Gross’ ceramic pieces are well-known in Palm Beach County galleries and exhibit venues. Hyper-realistic, his porcelain sculptures are often mistaken for the “real thing”.  His hand bag series has a waiting list! Everyday objects have been turned into art statements through his creative vision. The Rickie Report celebrates Ray’s imagination with a listing of upcoming exhibits, including Wiesbaden, Germany!

Ray Gross is an artist, sculptor and designer.  He was raised in South Florida in a creative home-setting, with his father who worked as a jeweler, painter and poet. His mother’s family is famous for their millinery business, designing ladies’ hats, especially in the Roaring 20’s styles.

 

 

 

 

"Louie,Louie" by Ray Gross

After college and during his graduate studies at University of Florida, Ray worked as a graduate teaching assistant.  He established his first studio/gallery near the  famous “Homestead Hotel” near Warm Springs, VA.

 

 

 

"Camera View" by Ray Gross

Two years later, Ray partnered with Joan Farish to open “Clay Concepts” in West Palm Beach,FL.  and later founded Lake Avenue Gallery located in Lake Worth, FL.  Ray left the gallery in the late 1980’s to focus on his studio work.

 

 

 

Sterling Silver Sculptures by Ray Gross

Through The Buyers Market of American Crafts Council (PA) and Rosen Media (Baltimore, MD), Ray was invited to the American Craft Museum in New York City for a one-man SOLO Exhibition.  His hyper-realistic porcelain sculpture, “Harley” was an instant success and was exhibited throughout Museums on the East coast of the United States.  Many will remember seeing “Harley” at the Norton Museum, Boca Museum of Art, Fort Lauderdale Museum of Art and at Art in Public Place at Palm Beach International Airport.

 

 

"Fishing" by Ray Gross

Keeping the same theme of hyper-realistic porcelain sculptures of objects of everyday Americana, this July, Ray had his first sellout show in the Hamptons.  He is being represented by Anthony Brunelli Gallery in Binghamton, NY.  His new work will be shown this season at the Binghamton Gallery as well as SCOPE Miami, Art Miami and Art Palm Beach (Whitespace’s “Collect”).

Marvin will be remembered as a passionate, caring and distinguished physician, a patron of the arts and a global citizen. Known fondly as a true renaissance man, he was an avid collector of contemporary art and devoted supporter of artists, donating many works to museums of regional and national prominence. He was on the Board of Directors of the Hirshhorn Museum in Washington, DC, where he sponsored The Mordes Lecture of Contemporary Art for 11 years. He was co-founder with his wife Elayne of Whitespace Collection, a private contemporary art exhibition space in West Palm Beach.

He is survived by his beloved wife, Elayne (Rubenstein), daughter Stephanie Ives, son-in-law Matthew Ives, and grandchildren Jared and Martine Hamilton, and was the dear brother-in-law of Marcy (Rubenstein) and Larry Friedman, and Marc Rubenstein.

The Rickie Report recommends this extraordinary exhibition: “Evocative Juxtapositions Between Two International Artists” and opportunity to meet the artists.

Zammy Migdal Sculpture

Zammy Migdal Sculpture

 

 

 

❖ Zammy Migdal, a native of Tel Aviv, Israel, has created a language in metal that transforms spaces and walls into shapes, colors and shadows. In his work, energy flows to form clarity, definition, and purpose. He shapes metal into forms, but it is the emptiness inside the forms that holds the shadows. While some of his very architectural work is firmly grounded on Earth, other work has its origins in his interest to suspend objects against gravity. Such work is created by the relationships among metal foregrounds, attaching pins, spaces, light and shadows, in which hard metal resembles ribbons that flow and twist in the wind.

 

 

 

Zammy Migdal is also showing large polychrome steel sculptures from
October 25, 2014-April 30, 2015- Morris and Rose Kraft Sculpture Gardens

❖ Gudrun Kemsa’s photographic works and Video Installations are depictions of space, time and movement. Her eye is focused on urban space where she documents the course of events in streets and in open public places. Her video installations are designed as large projections for indoor or outdoor spaces. In their actions and timelines, they lead the viewer to experiences of space and time. Since 2002, Kemsa has been producing video works in analogy to human vision, this is done in constant motion. Her indoor video installations at the Armory will range from works done in the Ruhr valley of her native Germany to works produced in China and the US.
