Janet Gold’s SOLO Exhibit “Cages and Collages” Features Vintage Collage and Mixed Media Assemblage

Janet Gold’s SOLO Exhibit, ”Cages and Collages” at Art Gallery 21 opens Friday night February 13th with a pre-Valentines celebration from 7pm to 9pm.  Working with collage for its limitless possibilities, Janet created and curated a cohesive show of her recent work.  She has worked in South Florida for over thirty years, in addition to a thirty-five year teaching career. Janet’s artwork has been shown nationally and internationally in museums, galleries, Hollywood movies, and behind people’s couches.

"Anatomy of a Collage" by Janet Gold

“Anatomy of a Collage” by Janet Gold

 

Janet Gold tells The Rickie Report, ” This is Confessions of a Bookkiller… For this exhibit, I have created and curated a cohesive show of my recent work. I work with collage for its limitless possibilities. I search for vintage papers combing old bookstores, antique stores, flea markets, and the inimitable and irreplaceable EBay for my materials. I work with old books, book covers, and papers combining them with string, text, calligraphy, thread, paper, paper dolls, fabrics, vitreous and detritus and an occasional rusty bottle cap and/or found object. Things bought and things found. The collages are then assemblages of paper history built with old books as their base, ledgers from the 1800’s, mixed with text and wallpaper from the 1930’s, and fabric from men’s silk shirts from the 1980’s”.

 

 

"Mixed Message" by Janet Gold

“Mixed Message” by Janet Gold

 

“The birdcages are the newest path in my evolution from 2-D to 3-D work. They are spontaneous, creative, and decidedly quirky. The birdcages show up at my studio, and then there is a period of pure unadulterated creativity, from beginning to end. Collecting paper, cutting, sewing, weights and counterweights, design, placement, and balancing, all orchestrated into a final product, which is always a surprise, even to me. Come see the show. Come see all of the old books and birdcages that have been rescued”.

Youth Summer Art Camp at Boca Museum of Art Offers August Programs By the Week

The Boca Museum of Art – ART SCHOOL holds an award-winning youth summer art camp for ages 5- 12 year-olds.   Camp registration is by the week.  Each week boasts a different theme from wood sculpture to origami, cartooning and landscape painting.  The program is taught by professional artist/teachers.  Students make independent art works as well as work collaboratively. Camp is child-centered, and they learn all aspects of art from art history to vocabulary and everything in between!   The Rickie Report can think of no better way than having fun and nurturing future artists and art patrons!  More details are here.

Summer Camp!

The Summer Art Camp is run by long- time director, Eydi Lampasona. Eydi holds a Masters Degree in Fine Arts and is certainly adored by campers and parents alike. Her assistant, Elizabeth Fenton, has been with the camp for seven years as both a counselor and assistant to the director. She is currently studying pre- medicine at the University of Notre Dame. In the above picture, Eydi (left) and Elizabeth (right) pose at the campers’ art exhibition at the Boca Raton Museum of Art at the end of the summer.

In the above picture, students begin working on the mural that will be placed in the Boca Raton Museum of Art at the end of Summer 2014. Every age contributes to the museum pieces, and only the campers work on them, with instructions, guidance, and suggestions from the counselors and teachers.   Students in Weeks 1 and 2 created the mural above using solely acrylic paint. It will be displayed in the exhibition at the Boca Raton Museum of Art at the conclusion of Summer 2014. Over 150 children participated in this project ranging in age from 5 to 12 years old.

The art displayed above was created by children last summer during Weeks 5-8. Ages 5-12 participated in these four works, and they were displayed in the Boca Raton Museum of Art for the month of August 2013. Each week is focused on particular themes, techniques, and artists.

This unique figurative sculpture, on display at the Summer Exhibition 2013 was assembled by campers from all weeks. This piece took all of the students ten weeks to complete and was a favorite among the students and parents.

Meet Elizabeth, one of our campers for Summer 2014! Elizabeth is currently seven and has been coming to the Art Camp for the past three summers. She says that this is her favorite camp and cannot wait to be a counselor when she turns thirteen years old! The work she is working on above is part of Week 1- watercolor and painting.

 

 BocaIMG_6671

 

 

Art Camp is a fun way to express yourself and create individual masterpieces while being taught by some of the top artists in South Florida. During this entertaining week last summer, campers created their own masks in the form of buckets. At the end of the week, the students had created their own play to put on for the staff and other campers.

Boca Museum Of Art Offers Summer Courses for Children, Teens, Adults

The Boca Museum – Art School is an integral part of the cultural campus comprised of the Boca Museum in Mizner Park, The Artists’ Guild Gallery located in Delray, and the Art School on West Palmetto Park Road.  Each in their own way and in overlapping ways these sites enrich the cultural life and strengthen the arts community of Palm Beach County.  The Rickie Report is pleased to share information about Summer Classes, which begin at the end of June.  We know you will find the right class and instructor for your needs.

 

 

 

BOCAMUSEUM2logo

 

 

Summer art classes start June 30th

 

 

The Art School offers classes and special workshops for children, teens and adults in ceramics, drawing, jewelry, painting, photography and sculpture.  Classes attract beginners to experienced artists. The school provides well equipped studios, an outstanding faculty as well as a gallery for students to exhibit their work.

 

 

 

BocaMuseumIMG_5419

 

 

This summer there is a range of art classes for adult and teen classes beginning June 30th and a second session starting July 28. During the fall and winter months studio art courses are often filled to capacity.  The summer is a great time to take a class because there is more elbow room in the studios.  The summer’s short sessions run for 4 weeks and are an ideal length for experienced artists to freshen up their skills or try a new medium.  And for beginners the summer is a great way to explore their creative side within a short time commitment.

 

Boca Museumeydi's class

 

 

Day and evening courses include: Figure Drawing on Monday evenings, taught by the classically trained team of Suzanne Scherer and Pavel Ouporov and “Expressive Figure Drawing’ with Barbara Wasserman on Monday afternoons.
