ABOUT ART SALONS:

Our discussions cover the gamut of contemporary art themes, including conceptual, cultural, socio/political, environmental, race and gender focused and aesthetic practices, the materials and techniques used to convey these ideas, and where we fit into the world of contemporary conceptual art. Art Salons also offer the opportunity to explore the practical side of being an artist, enhance professional development, share useful resources, and network with other artists. Elle Schorr, a well known artist / photographer who spends much of her time at museums and art exhibits locally and internationally, has been facilitating the salons, hosted by the Armory Art Center, since 2012. All are welcome to join in these timely explorations of trends in contemporary art and individual artists’ work.

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.

“Important Avant-Garde Patrons of Then Unknown Artists”

by Joan Lipton

At the outset of their careers, both Matisse and Picasso considered themselves very lucky when two sets of patrons collected an abundance of their paintings.   “Two Baltimore ladies,” as Matisse called sisters Clarabel and Etta Cone, bought his Fauve paintings that had been dismissed as wild creations by the critics. Soon they were also purchasing Picassos and other modern masters-to-be. A friend of the Cones, Gertrude Stein and her siblings, Leo and Michael, also added innumerable works by Matisse, Picasso and a host of Post-Impressionists. The gatherings in the Stein home at 27 rue de Fleurus, also known as the “Stein Studio,” brought together confluences of talent and thinking that would help define modernism in literature and art. Pablo Picasso, Henri Matisse and other dedicated attendees included Ernest Hemingway, F. Scott Fitzgerald, and Sinclair Lewis to name a few.

 
Art historian, Joan Lipton, Ph.D., will share many facts and paintings with her audience, all of which will surprise and excite you. Ms. Lipton has held numerous workshops in colleges, alumni associations, adult education centers and libraries in New York City and New Jersey.
