VICKI  SIEGEL  ANNOUNCES  NEW  STUDIO

And:

   FIRST FRIDAY ARTWALK OCTOBER 6th

IN ARTIST ALLEY, DELRAY BEACH, FL

354 4th Ave.  Delray Beach, FL

Vicki Siegel invites the public to visit her new studio and exhibit space at 354 4th Ave. in Delray Beach in Artist Alley the first Friday of the each month beginning Oct. 6 and continuing Nov. 3, December 1 and into the New Year. Vicki is sharing this new space with two other artists; Brenda Gordon and Magnus Sebastian (Gordon & Magnus Gallery).

 

VICKI SIEGEL:

 

Vicki Siegel’s work combines painting and photography together. She creates images that unite her fascination with the world around her with the physicality of paint. Blending the two art forms is a process that results in images that are both real and imaginary. The photographers gaze allows her to observe and archive reality, while the paint flows from her subconscious to her brush in marks that are uniquely her own.  Siegel says, “In my work I ask the viewer to engage by comparing what is photographic and what is paint, but also what is personal and what is universal”. In the narrative it is her hope that they see her vision of how strange and wonderful life is, and how beautiful nature is and the necessity of preserving it.

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.

BUILDING AN ABSTRACT SERIES: A NEW APPROACH
with visiting artist, Brenda Zappitell
October 8, 9, 10 & 11, 2016 | 9:30 am – 4:30 pm | Fee: $800

 

oldschoolsquare02_oldschoolsquare_cas_zappitell_abstract-series-workshop_web

 

Free your abstraction in an unconventional space! This four-day acrylic workshop offers a premiere opportunity to create an abstract series using our 1925 Fieldhouse (a vintage gym) as your studio! This amazing, inspiring space is perfect for creating work in as large a format as you want, with hands-on intensive assistance. Participants create their own abstract series by learning how to paint three or more paintings a day. We will use acrylic paint and “loosening up” exercises to liberate intuitive creativity. Discussion of color theory, composition and suggestions for creating your own “painting process” will also be provided. There will be daily meditation and demonstrations in the workshops.

 

 

 

UNLOCKING CREATIVITY: AN INTENSIVE DREAM WORKSHOP FOR ARTISTS
with resident artist, Dr. Neal Wiseman
Third Saturday each month, 10:00 am – 4:00 pm | Fee: $165

 

oldschoolsaquare03_oldschoolsquare_cas_wiseman_dreamworkshop_web

 

 

The objective of this six-hour workshop (for all levels) is to learn to turn stress and stagnation into creative excitement and productivity. Our tools are intensive dream work, awareness training, group encounter and psychodrama. Students rediscover feelings of inspiration, energy, and persistence. They learn to feel better about their work and about themselves; they learn to think better and focus more clearly; and they learn to develop the self-discipline they need to help them meet their professional goals.
