Courage and confidence, striking design and simplicity of materials give Debbie Mostel’s jewelry an eternal quality she has long been noted for. Silver and gold, glass rods and globes and yes, intricate pieces from computer parts create sensual, organic, statement-making pop-art jewelry designed with the future in mind.

Debbie Lee Mostel, BFA California College of the Arts and Pratt Institute in New York, was trained by master goldsmith, Ellen Broker, and master silversmith, Hans Christensen, of Copenhagen, Denmark. Early in her career, after a stint with Tiffany’s, Mostel formed her own company. Her work in the wholesale jewelry business brought her acclaim when her designs were carried by Bloomingdales, Nordstrom, Macy’s, Henri Bendel and Saks Fifth Ave.  Debbie’s jewelry was also seen in Richard Avedon’s fashion photographs.

Featured in dozens of magazines, Mostel’s work has depth and credibility. Her jewelry was photographed on top models such as Becky Johnson and has graced the cover of Vogue,Glamour, Bazzar, and the inside pages of the New Yorker Magazine, LA Magazine, the New York Times, Women’s Wear Daily, just to name a few.

Mostel’s work has been compared with illustrious designer Robert Lee Morris who came up during the same era as Mostel. Both designers have been influenced by the forms they find in nature and their interest in sculpting. Both love the feel and look of silver and perhaps one difference may be in the stunning simplicity of Mostel’s designs.

 

 

"Joyful Universe" by Debbie Mostel

“Joyful Universe” by Debbie Mostel

 

“Joyful Universe” will be on display at the Cultural Council of Palm Beach County from Dec 16th–Feb 10th.  Debbie tells The Rickie Report, ” Upon creating this piece what occurs to me most profoundly is the beautiful planet we live on. Even with its changing political boundaries, ecological uncertainty, and polluted waterways our planet is a miracle in our Universe. I am A Science based thinker/Designer/artist who sees the blessings and wonders in every drop of water and behind every blade of grass. I don’t mean to get too sappy, but I do feel passionately connected to our Earth. Sadly, too many humans today are just out of touch with their home​.”

Mostel’s national recognition is underscored by artist and writer, Bruce Helander who has supported her rise up the ladder. “Mostel takes the viewer on an anything goes journey” says Helander of her work. The Norton Museum of Art has featured Debbie Lee in their Art after Dark series. She is a member of the Artists of Palm Beach County, National Association of Women Artists (NAWA),Boca Museum’s Artist Guild, Lighthouse ArtCenter and Cultural Council of Palm Beach County.

German artist Michael Burges  and photographer Katherina Mayer, represented by Lausberg Contemporary Galleries will be showing their artistry at the Armory Art Center from December 14, 2014 through January 10, 2015. The show’s opening reception will take place Friday, December 12, 2014, at 6:00 p.m.

 

 

 

 

 

Painting by Burgess

Gold Leaf Painting by Michael Burges

 

Michael Burges, who lives and works in Germany and Italy, will show work from his Gold series. Employing a unique technique of reverse glass painting with 23.75 carat gold leaf Burges creates large ‘paintings’ with an extraordinary color presence, aesthetic precision, and visual impact. His work does not suggest a narrative meaning, it acts through their qualities of light and reflection and coincidental color patterns. The glass pane functions simultaneously as a division and a portal of intensified insight. They are like painterly objects without narration, but with an enormous presence of light and rhythm.

 

 

 

 

 

"Familie Purdy" by Katherina Mayer

“Familie Purdy” by Katharina Mayer

Katharina Mayer’s project Familia focuses on the family as a central nexus of meaning. Families are arguably the most important institution for the dissemination of ethical and moral values. Religion, togetherness, the ability to manage conflict, responsibility, love, and tolerance are generally passed on in families. In these large family photographs Katharina employs simple, staged, stylistic conventions to intervene in the visual narratives. She discovers and experiments with the boundaries between private and public and is able to capture these families in their most familiar and often most psychologically revealing contexts.

 

 

Katharina will be available to take commissioned photographs in private homes from December 8th through December 14th. To inquire about pricing and to make arrangements for a commissioned portrait please contact the Armory at 561-832-1776 x13.

NAWA is the oldest professional women’s fine arts group in the United States. In 1889, five innovative women in New York City founded the not-for-profit, tax exempt organization to foster public awareness and interest in visual art created by women as well as to empower, support and encourage women artists. Its early exhibitions included works by such notable artists as Mary Cassatt and Suzanne Valadon, and later membership rosters included Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney, Louise Nevelson, Alice Neel, and Judy Chicago.

This momentous global event caused contemplation on the idea of boundaries – not just political and geographical boundaries, but also boundaries of feminism, religion, race, culture and intellectual thoughts. This exhibition celebrates the unwavering human spirit which finds a path to overcome adversity.

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!

 

Admission to Whitespace
$10 per person. Students with valid ID $5 per person
includes free collectible Max Toth Poster

 

 

Whitespace is the private contemporary art exhibition space located in West Palm Beach.  This collection spans over 30 years and has a unique European approach.  One of the strengths of the collection is the consistency of vision that it exhibits and, in addition, has also been characterized by its enthusiasm and focus.  Whitespace has approximately 8000 square feet of exhibition space which has partial permanent programming and a changing project space entitled “Whitebox”, which has curated exhibitions which meet a high level of competency, vision and creativity.  This is the only venue of this type in this area.

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.”
