MIXED / MULTI-MEDIA SALON

FIRST TUESDAY AT THE ARMORY

Tuesday, Dec 4th, 2012 6:30 – 8:30 PM

Event Location:
Armory Art Center
1700 Parker Ave
West Palm Beach, FL 33401

This Is An APBC Sponsored Event
Other Sponsors:
Armory Art Center

The MIXED / MULTI-MEDIA SALON continues its discussion of contemporary art themes, practices, and techniques.At this Salon, we will be looking at the life and art of world renowned Chinese artist Ai Weiwei. He is known for projects such as his collaboration with architects Herzog & de Meuron on the design of the 2008 Beijing Olympic National Stadium, and for his recent battles for accountability and freedom of expression in China, using the internet and social media as an active platform for social and political commentary and as an art form in itself. He also works in photography, video, sculpture, and installation, using wood, bronze, antique, natural and found objects, and many other materials for work that is sometimes documentary, sometimes simply beautiful, mostly conceptual, and always highly imaginative, from his 12 years in the US, to his return to China, exploring China’s past and present. His work is currently on display at the Hirshhorn Museum in Washington, DC, and in a documentary film, “Never Sorry”.

 

At the Mixed / Multi Media Salon, we examine the work of some of the most important artists showing work in museums today, and also meet local artists who are emerging into the larger art world. We’re covering the broader world of conceptual art and where we as artists fit into the big picture. APBC is collaborating on this Salon with the Armory Art Center.

 

Art Salons meet on the first Tuesday of each month from 6:30-8:30 pm. If you’d like to present the work of an influential artist, or share your own work, please contact Elle Schorr elleschorr@elleschorrphotography.com the Salon. Either the actual work or PowerPoint presentations can be shown.

 

******* Because New Year’s Day falls on the first Tuesday in January, and because there are five Tuesdays in January, Salons will be on the second and fourth Tuesdays. For this month only, Mixed / Multi Media Salon will meet on January 8.

 

The Armory Art Center is now hosting three different art salon-style groups. All salons are $10, payable at the door. You do not need to be a member of the Armory or APBC to attend. All Salons are in Studio 101, in the long 2 story building behind the garden. Bring snacks to share if you’d like.

Children’s Art Camp Beckons: Ages 4- 12

The Rickie Report knows how frustrated parents and children are when art activities are often the first items to be cut from the school budget.  There is no reason for your child to miss out, though, since the Lighthouse ArtCenter Summer campers begin a stimulating voyage through art history!  And there is still time to sign up!

 

School’s out, but Lighthouse ArtCenter campers are learning that art throughout the ages is a blast! Lighthouse ArtCenter kicked off its popular 10-week ArtCamp, for children ages 4 to 12, on June 11, and the reviews are glowing. Parents picking up their children are guided through the make-believe cave, as an excited camper exclaims, “I painted this cave scene!”

 

At the Master Artists Summer Enrichment ArtCamp, kids pretend to be famous artists throughout history, creating drawing, ceramics, painting, 3D and mixed media projects. Weekly art projects range from Pop Art to Baroque to cartooning. Campers discover the subjects and styles of historical time periods, as well as technique

ArtCamp- Jonah Kalter, Sarah Traylor, Noah Kalter.  Sarah Traylor holds a mummy sarcophagus, and brothers Jonah (left) and Noah Kalter show off their drawing and weavings from the Summer Enrichment ArtCamp at the Lighthouse ArtCenter School of Arts.

 

“The kids have fun exploring art movements and artists and create their own Art Palette Passport,” explained Katie Deits, Lighthouse ArtCenter’s executive director. “Unfortunately, in the schools many art programs have been discontinued and children don’t have a sense of art history. Our ArtCamp fills that gap and is fun and memorable, as the children learn about famous artists and movements.”

 

Master Artists Summer Enrichment ArtCamp runs through August 17, with the theme of each week inspired by different art periods. “The weeks are a positive learning experience, giving each child an awareness to create a unique personal prize creation to take home,” said camp veteran instructor Evelyne Bates. She adds, “In my 39 years of teaching in the Summer Camp program the rewards have been many. Children return again and again saying, ‘I love ArtCamp!’ I too feel that way and look forward to new experiences every week.”

ArtCamp: In Lauren Shapiro’s class, children created fantasy animals, painted flying bats and designed Greek temples.

 

 

Weekly subjects range from prehistoric caveman paintings to Renaissance supermen to wild Abstract Expressionism and Pop Art. “This camp has the perfect art-center topic. Kids soon realize that they can have a blast learning about different art movements, and take home some great art to show off to friends and family!” said Lighthouse ArtCenter Education Coordinator Robyn Roberts.

 

ArtCamp is available for children ages 4 to 12, and runs five days a week throughout June, July, and mid-August.  ArtCamp hours are from 9 a.m. to noon for campers ages 4 to 5, and from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. for campers ages 6 to 12. The weekly fee for campers ages 4 to 5 is $110 for Lighthouse ArtCenter members and $135 for nonmembers, and for campers ages 6 to 12, $185 for Lighthouse ArtCenter members and $210 for nonmembers. Aftercare is also available for an additional fee from 3 to 6 p.m. For more information about ArtCamp, call the School of Art at (561) 748-8737, or visit the Lighthouse ArtCenter online at www.LighthouseArts.org.

 

The Lighthouse ArtCenter Museum and School of Art is a member-supported not-for-profit 501(c)(3) community arts organization, providing excellence in art exhibitions, instruction, education and outreach for all ages. Programs are funded in part by the Palm Beach County Cultural Council, the Palm Beach County Tourist Development Council and the Palm Beach County Board of County Commissioners.

World Famous Glass Mosaic Artist is Here! RSVP Now!

The Rickie Report knows how lucky we are to live in this area and have so many choices of speakers, gallery openings, and other art related events.  This one is not to be missed!  Vanessa Somers Vreeland is currently working at The Armory Art Center in West Palm Beach on a series that will be featured in Toulouse, France starting in July 2012.

Yellow Orchid (mirror, gold, glass, marble mosaic)

On Wednesday, May 23, 2012 at 6:30 p.m. Vanessa Somers Vreeland will present an illustrated talk on her artistic process and the art of mosaics. Reservations can be made by calling (561) 832-1776 x15.  Free and open to the public.

“My Passion is to create new, exciting and unique mosaic art-drawings on themes of the past, in this recently rediscovered medium.”

Vanessa began her artistic career as a traditional painter in Paris. Her curiosity about transparency led her to experimenting with glass. She studied with Professor Odoardo Anselmi, artistic director of the Vatican Mosaic Studio in Rome. Her very successful career in fused glass mosaic technique and works in marble and cold glass in traditional Roman style paved the way for many international lectures and teaching positions. These include The Corning Museum of Glass, Penland School of Crafts, Columbia Museum of Art, The American Craft Museum, The Getty Museum, and Pilchuck Art School.

In Vitas Veritas: Hand Cut Marble and Glass Mosaic

ASARATON is a mega mosaic recently on view in The Rodin Gallery, Legion of Honor Museum in San Francisco. Vanessa is exploring the concept of a lecture and exhibition of this piece at both The National Gallery and The Metropolitan Museum of Art. She has had exhibitions in Paris, New York, Brussels, Rome, Florence and North Africa. Her studio is in Rome.

Rockin Art Scene at Armory

The Rickie Report looks forward to this annual show.  It is edgy.  It is creative.  It is fun.  It will make you smile.  It will make you think.  And hopefully, you will want to buy!  Don’t miss it – get there early for the free grab bags, a good parking space, and the best of the buys! 

The Armory Art Center Partners with Art Rock for a One Day Art Show + Indie Marketplace Event

Art Rock is a cash and carry art show + indie marketplace featuring pop-surrealist, outsider, lowbrow, and street art alongside D.I.Y fashion, funky jewelry, and home deco items located at the Armory Art Center. Art you will want to buy made by accomplished and up and coming South Florida artists.

The event will showcase over 60 artist’s booths packed full of affordable art you can hang on your walls, wear, eat, admire or even sip your coffee from. Showcasing art in all mediums including painting, sculpture, ceramics, printmaking, photography, fabric, edible art and more! Live artist demonstrations, complimentary swag bags are available for the first 100 people. Armory faculty will be doing demonstrations in wheel throwing, drawing and painting and will be conducting a free kids activity. Door prizes, food and drinks will add to the excitement of the day.

Art Rock Creator, Amanda Linton’s reason for bring the event to the Armory was inspired by the Armory’s strong connection to the art community.  “We wanted to create a venue for artists to sell their work, network and meet other artists, galleries and collectors face to face.” Amanda says, “My husband and I are Artists ourselves and with the success of our sister show STITCH ROCK, we thought a similar marketplace with a focus on fine art was defiantly needed. There are plenty of annual art shows with the same art year after year, but we wanted a place to showcase art we would be happy to hang on our own walls.”

NOTE:  Sign Up Now –  The Art Camp Program at The Hibel Museum is already  SOLD OUT!

1)   FOTOcamp for Kids 2012

 

Four Sessions Planned this Summer for Children & Teens, Ages 6 to 17

 
Fatima NeJame, president and chief executive officer of the world renowned Palm Beach Photographic Centre (PBPC), today announced that this summer the nonprofit organization will be offering four, age appropriate FOTOcamps for children and teens.
 
Summer FOTOfun Minicamp
+ June 25-29  /  9 a.m. to noon
For ages 6-8
 
FOTOcamp for Kids
+ June 11-22  /  9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
+ July 9-20  /  9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
+ July 23 – August 3  /  9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
For ages 9-17
 

“FOTOcamp is for anyone between the ages of 6 and 17 that has an interest in photography and/or computers, and who are inquisitive and like adventure,” says NeJame.  “It is the perfect opportunity for youngsters and teens to gain knowledge in all areas of photography, beginning with the basics of picture-taking using SLR digital cameras and progressing to state-of the-art digital imaging, at each participant’s own rate of speed.”

 

“FOTOcamp is my favorite time of the year,” she adds. “I enjoy seeing the amazing images the kids come back with from their field trips, and I love to see their reactions when working in a real studio.”  FOTOcamp students are grouped by their level of experience, from beginner to advanced in each of three 2-week summer sessions. Students are each issued a digital SLR Camera and while exploring lens choices, lighting, and composition of photographs they will learn about photography and digital imaging, in a fun and fact-filled environment. Sessions in the computer lab will expose them to downloading images to the computer, saving and renaming files, burning CDs, and creating slide shows.

 

In addition, using Adobe Photoshop and Elements, they will learn image adjustment techniques such as color correction, compositing images, adjustment layers and layer masks and other digital imaging technology. The computer lab is set up so that each student has access to a computer ensuring the ultimate hands-on experience. Location shooting and photographic assignments give them the opportunity to practice their skills while acquiring new images.

 

Based at the Palm Beach Photographic Centre in downtown West Palm Beach, all sessions of FOTOcamp will include a professional instructor and an assistant, with opportunities for both individualized and group critiques for each student.  The culmination of all three sessions of FOTOcamp for Kids will be a special exhibition of photos taken by the young students. At the exhibition’s opening on August 24, one talented FOTOcamper will be named Student of the Year and receive a free SLR Digital camera.

 

The cost to attend the Summer FOTOfun Minicamp for ages 6-8 is $345 for Photo Centre members and $375 for nonmembers. This covers five 3-hour sessions.  The cost to attend one of the three two-week session of FOTOcamp for Kids is only $695 for Photo Centre members and $745 for nonmembers.  This covers 10 6-hour sessions and includes use of digital SLR Cameras, transportation and admission fees for the fieldtrips, t-shirts, prints, etc. To register for either the Summer FOTOfun Minicamp or one of the three sessions of FOTOcamp for Kids, please call 561.253.2600 or visit www.workshop.org.

 

Now running through June 9 at the Palm Beach Photographic Centre is WYNN BULLOCK: Insights & Surprises. A mid-twentieth century master photographer, Wynn Bullock is best known for his evocative black and white images, he also created a significant body of color work he called “Color Light Abstractions.” This exhibition includes a 44-print traveling exhibit of Bullock’s Color Light Abstractions, as well as a fine selection of his vintage black & white photographs, a representative collection of his images from the family’s new black & white estate print program, and a small, yet revealing, group of vintage photographs by Wynn’s wife Edna, who began her own notable career as a creative photographer at age 61, a year after Wynn’s death in 1975.
