AJ Brockman tells The Rickie Report, “The first week of our “soft opening” was a success! Please bear with us as we continue to go through some growing pains and implementing some changes. We’ve rolled out our new menu from Tacos don Pepe earlier than anticipated and will therefore no longer be allowing outside food to be brought in. We understand this was a big part of our atmosphere but we are only trying to make things better and offer more options. The entire menu is literally prepared from scratch with authentic Mexican recipes passed down through the generations. Vegetarian and vegan options are also available + over 6 homemade sangria’s. All you have to do is try it and you will see why we have decided to offer this exclusively!!”

 

Here’s The LineUp*

 

Tuesday – Musicians Showcase “In the Round” : 7 to 10 : $2 off draft & specialty wine. Bringing you a little bit of Nashville to Lake Park. Hosted by Bill Hartmann, this event is part storytelling, part jam session, and all out acoustic. Original music at its finest!

If we haven’t met yet, we look forward to hearing from you. We really are sisters, one in Florida and 2 in Massachusetts. In 2002, Susan visited a Florida bead shop and strung her first bracelet.

Joni Berte tells The Rickie Report, ” My artistic interests are endless! I appreciate all forms of art; traditional, classic, deviant, outsider, you name it! It is my belief that there are many ways to express oneself and art is food for the soul. Self-expression is paramount to the artist and the drive to create is as impossible to stop as a runaway train. For the past few years I have focused on Day of the Dead art, and have developed a unique style that is the hallmark of my pieces.”

 

Personal Shrine by Joni Berte

Personal Shrine by Joni Berte

 

She continues, “While many of my Day of the Dead designs, particularly those found on my Sugar Skull masks, are typical of the genre, my execution is of the highest quality — especially in the areas of line detail and color. I am currently working on assemblage art in the form of Personal Shrines and am finding it a very versatile and rewarding medium. Additionally, I am collaborating with my father (Bill Lohnes) on Fantasy Dragonflies. My new Fire-Carved Boxes are for sale at Rare Earth Gallery in Stuart, Florida.”

“Green Chevy” by Dennis Tishkowsky

 

Dennis tells The Rickie Report, ” My art, whether it be photography, painting, or pastels, is one of simplicity. I choose to make an understatement of my subject, rather than an elaborate one. It seems that my subjects find me rather than the reverse. I’m particularly interested in things which show their age and beauty i.e. old buildings, vehicles, etc.”

Multiple Calls To Artists From May Through December, 2015 At Clay Glass Metal Stone Gallery

Kudos to Joyce Brown of Clay Glass Metal Stone Gallery and Flamingo Clay Studio for giving artists enough time to create new works of art to enter into exhibitions!  The Rickie Report shares SEVEN Calls To Artists here, beginning in May and ending in December, 2015.  There is a discount for multiple entries and varying themes!  Get your calendars out to mark the deadlines and start creating!! Attention Art Teachers: Your students may enter with no fee!

 

 

 

CLAY GLASS METAL STONE Gallery

15 South J Street

Lake Worth, Florida 33460

“Calls to Artists”

May – December, 2015

 

 

Clay Glass Metal Stone Gallery will be holding a series of Exhibitions throughout the year. Individual “Calls” for each of these will also be sent out, as they approach. This year we thought it would be a good idea to give you an over-view of all topics, as well as dates, so you can prepare, in advance, for the ones in which you want to participate. As you look over our shows, and titles, remember: The works are YOUR interpretation of the topic. All but the “Elder Craftsman” show are open to all media; 2-D and 3-D.

 

Our application fee is $35. If you decide to participate in three or more shows, you application fee is $25 per show.

 

May 22-June 3: The Elder Craftsmen Exhibit:

Flamingo Clay Studio, our non-profit artist cooperative, received a generous grant from the Community Foundation, to fund 10 one-year scholarships for low income senior citizen artists in our new Clay/Fused Glass/Small Metals Studio. On May 22, these artists will create an exhibition of the works they have made during the first months of their time in the studio. If you are a senior citizen (55 and older) and a 3-D artist, you are invited to join with them in showing your works. We will be inviting the Community Foundation, their donors and their Board members to this event. It is a public event, as well. We expect that sales will be profitable for all artists concerned.

 

 

June 19-July 2: “Shoe Fetish/ Foot Fetish”

We wanted to add some levity to the hot summer by introducing the foot theme into our mix. We hope to get some of these works into the gallery a week early so we can get TV coverage on this. I would like to bring the shoe loving crowds into the gallery to purchase your works.

 

 

July 24-August 6: “The Male Form”

 

This was a special request exhibition from artists who feel slighted by the creations and shows that mostly feature the female form. They want equal time We welcome your interpretations.

 

September 18-September 30: “The Naked Truth”

 

Another special request is that we repeat this show again. Although it may seem similar to “The Male Form,” we see this as a wide open topic that can be interpreted as broadly as you wish.

 

WE ARE REPEATING OUR THREE SUCCESSFUL

EVENTS OF LAST YEAR

 

October 2- October 21: 2nd Annual Cat-O-Strophic Event:

This wildly popular event is all about cats; cats of every shape, color and kind. We will again reach out to all of the animal rescue venues, pet shops and veterinarians as we publicize this event.

 

 

October 23-November 4: 2nd Annual “Day(s) of the Dead”

 

This event brought purchasing patrons into the gallery long after the exhibit was taken down. The works of gallery artists, left over from this event, continue to sell. We have a whole new mailing list of “D of D” patrons who are looking forward to your works.

 

 

December 4-December 11: 2nd Annual “It’s A Dog’s Life”

Last year we had to give equal time to dogs, after our successful Cat-o-Strophic event. This show starts just as “season” is gearing up. Again, we will be contacting all pet shelters, pet shops and veterinarians, to publicize this show.

 

And for the rest of the season…

We will turn the front of the gallery back to the member artists. If you are a 3-D artist , please consider joining the gallery (and/or) our new studio. Members do not pay fees to be a part of our special exhibitions. It is part of the membership. Write for an application and we will forward it to you.
Art Teachers: If any of your students want to participate in any of our exhibits, they may do so without any fee. We welcome your participation, as an artist, as well.

“Party” by Margie Agoston

 

Margie she said this about her art: “My work comes from my heart. I have always loved creating whether it was painting, jewelry design or ceramics. When I paint I can freely express myself. My canvas is like a two dimensional sculpture. I use color, texture and movement to sculpt emotions.”  Margie Agoston’s hope for the observer is that they will go on their own journey and they will experience what the abstract painting says to them.  Please Margie’s website at http://www.margieagoston.com/

Enjoy stimulating conversations with other artists, led by Elle Schorr.  Professional artists from South Florida are invited to present their work, talk about what influenced them, and examine the work of influential artists showing in museums and galleries.  Topics 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. Explore the practical side of being an artist, of professional development and share useful resources.  Meet Diane Arrieta (aka Birds Are Nice) on April 7th. Lori Pratico and Elizabeth Sanjuan, of Girl Noticed, will present on April 21st.  All Salons meet in the Library of the Armory Art Center. Please note the last Art Salon for this season takes place on Tuesday, May 5. Salons will resume on the first Tuesday of each month, starting on October.

GIRL NOTICED

PRESENTED BY

LORI PRATICO AND ELIZABETH SANJUAN

Girl Noticed is a nationwide charcoal mural project aimed at bringing attention and awareness to the important role “the female” plays in our society. Hollywood based portrait artist Lori Pratico and photographer Elizabeth Sanjuan will be traveling to 50 states in 3 years to erect a series of detailed charcoal portraits, created as large exterior murals. Each mural will depict a female chosen from the area in which the mural will be painted. The murals will be crafted in charcoal, with the idea that weather conditions will naturally and quickly fade away these images. There is a window of time to “Notice” the artwork that has been created. This represents the message: “when an individual’s talents, intelligence, and character are left unnoticed, they may fade away, disappear, and never be seen or developed into their full potential.” Each individual chosen will be photographed alongside her portrait, and these photos will comprise a book to be published at the completion of the project.

Lori Pratico started her artistic career over 25 years ago, painting commercial billboards in Philadelphia. She then turned to creating her own art, most often portraits, and says: “My artwork is inspired by those who dare to be different. My paintings are often of women with tattoos, or brightly colored hair, but more importantly, women who have chosen to be happy with themselves despite what labels society has placed on them. When painting a portrait, I reach for the inside of a person. I know if I get the inside right, the outside will simply fall into place.”

Now she has decided to return to climbing walls. She explains “Over 25 years later, I’m back to painting walls, but with a different goal: to bring attention to important issues surrounding the demoralization of women, and to recognize the strength, courage, talents and tenacity of females throughout the United States. I’m creating something you have no choice but to notice. The first mural was done in Hollywood, Florida in January 2015. Before my 50th birthday, I will travel 50 states and create at least 50 murals. Art has always been where I have found my voice, and I aim to be heard. In a world where everyone is in a hurry I’m asking you to pause. My portraits challenge you to look closer, look longer and see differently.”

Elizabeth Sanjuan began her travel and photography adventures while at American Airlines, where she worked for 25 years. Now a recognized philanthropist and co-owner of Gallery 2014 in Hollywood, Florida, she has traveled to over 73 countries and plans to see at least 100 by the time she reaches age sixty. She and her husband, Ken Brown, founded the Sanjuan-Brown Hollywood Arts Foundation in 2012, a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting the arts and arts education. World travel is her vehicle and photography is her medium. “My passion is to discover, through travel, the vast mosaic of people, lands and cultures that the world offers; and to record, as faithfully as I can, the incredible panorama of color, pattern and energy that bombards the receptive eye. Travel gives me the opportunity to observe, but I believe the lens intensifies my ability to truly understand. I want to convey the world’s incredible variety and to create an awareness, understanding and respect for humankind through photographic images. I am constantly reminded that even though people live worlds apart, we are truly all the same. Our hopes, dreams, loves and losses are all captured in our faces. The camera provides objective proof of our commonality.”
