Brewhouse Gallery Shows New Artwork, Shares New Brews and Slips in Fun

The walls of The Brewhouse Gallery’s have new pieces of art!   Part eclectic hipster lounge/part modern New York art gallery, it’s a creative space to hang out, sip a brew, hold a meeting, share ideas, listen to music and appreciate local art. Free Wi-Fi and comfortable furniture (that is also for sale) make you feel right at home.  In addition, there are new taps and new artists! The Rickie Report sensed it from the beginning…The Brewhouse Gallery is more than an art gallery… AJ Brockman’s vision has truly created a community in Lake Park.  The Rickie Report shares some highlights for the end of December through January.  Don’t miss Whiskey Wasps’ live performance, Meet the Artist Night with Special Gift Certificates, Vintage Bike Night and Suga Wack for the Sunday night Jazz Series!

Wynwood Brewing

Wynwood Brewing’s Craft Beers

 

 

Check out our Wynwood “Tap Spotlight” @ The Brewhouse Gallery. The brewery is located in the heart of the Miami arts scene and they have been huge supporters of the Brewhouse family from day one. The first craft beer we ever poured was their blonde ale “La Rubia”. Did you miss the release “Death of Elvis” – a bacon, peanut butter and banana porter that has never been released outside the brewery?

“Collaborations and Mixed Mediums” is Coming! CALLING ALL ARTISTS NOW

 Jonathon Ortiz Smykla and Evelyn Ortiz Smykla of OSGS have a BIG dream. “Collaborations and Mixed Mediums” is a charitable Fine Art Exhibition that will take place at the CCE (Center for Creative Education) building on 24th Street in Northwood Village. The Opening Reception night is March 7th and the exhibit will run the entire month of March. OSGS Gallery is the Host Gallery and Jonathon Ortiz-Smykla is the show’s producer.  The Rickie Report believes that you have to dream BIG in order to succeed, so we are sharing this CALL TO ARTISTS!!!!  Attention Art Patrons: Mark your calendars now for this Spectacular event!

 

 

 

OSGScollaboration1

 

 

TRR:  Why is March 7th Opening Reception such a big deal?

JOS:

The Sponsorships are Big!  From the moment you arrive there will be Valet on hand and a Red Carpet Entry with a step-and-go photo opportunity! At the door there will be a suggested donation for the CCE, but that is small peanuts compared to the offerings ahead… The Entry will flow the attendees directly through the Exhibition, which is the highlight of the evening. I am trying to highlight Collaboration works so I am very interested in Artists working together to show their skills. The other side of the exhibition is Mixed Mediums”.

 

OSGScollaboration2

 

 TRR: What should attendees expect?

JOS:

“I am opening the Art Call to Artists so that I can also represent works to compliment Collaboartion pieces, maybe not necessarily Artist Collaborations but collaborations of mediums. That will also be open to installation work for consideration. To keep the evening lively, Tito’s Handmade Vodka will be on hand with a couple of specialty drinks, along with Table 427 for the culinary treats. C-Keys Recording and Vinyl will be providing the evening’s musical entertainment. Easel Art has graciously donated some materials so there will be Artists present who will be Collaborating, Live”.

 

OSGScollaboration3

 

“This will clearly be the biggest event that is currently lined up for March. So after we’ve all settled down from the Art Fair stretch in South Florida, we can take a moment to celebrate and highlight our Local Talent while helping a charity that teaches and nurtures children’s learning abilities through the Arts. That is reason enough to get excited about this event, it just so happens that I’m providing a social scene to accompany the evening.”

 

 

 

OSGScollaboration4

TRR: How can more people (art lovers, art patrons and      local vendors) get involved?

JOS:

“I’m still reaching out for additional sponsorships to round out the evening but the most recent has been the West Palm Beach CRA and other Northwood area merchants. Interested vendors and artists should contact me now, so they will be included in the massive marketing and publicity campaign preceding this event! “

Courage and confidence, striking design and simplicity of materials give Debbie Mostel’s jewelry an eternal quality she has long been noted for. Silver and gold, glass rods and globes and yes, intricate pieces from computer parts create sensual, organic, statement-making pop-art jewelry designed with the future in mind.

 

 

Debbie Mostel's Cuffs

Debbie Mostel’s Cuffs

 

Debbie Lee Mostel, BFA California College of the Arts and Pratt Institute in New York, was trained by master goldsmith, Ellen Broker, and master silversmith, Hans Christensen, of Copenhagen, Denmark. Early in her career, after a stint with Tiffany’s, Mostel formed her own company. Her work in the wholesale jewelry business brought her acclaim when her designs were carried by Bloomingdales, Nordstrom, Macy’s, Henri Bendel and Saks Fifth Ave.  Debbie’s jewelry was also seen in Richard Avedon’s fashion photographs.

Featured in dozens of magazines, Mostel’s work has depth and credibility. Her jewelry was photographed on top models such as Becky Johnson and has graced the cover of Vogue,Glamour, Bazzar, and the inside pages of the New Yorker Magazine, LA Magazine, the New York Times, Women’s Wear Daily, just to name a few.

Mostel’s work has been compared with illustrious designer Robert Lee Morris who came up during the same era as Mostel. Both designers have been influenced by the forms they find in nature and their interest in sculpting. Both love the feel and look of silver and perhaps one difference may be in the stunning simplicity of Mostel’s designs.

 

 

"Joyful Universe" by Debbie Mostel

“Joyful Universe” by Debbie Mostel

 

“Joyful Universe” will be on display at the Cultural Council of Palm Beach County from Dec 16th–Feb 10th.  Debbie tells The Rickie Report, ” Upon creating this piece what occurs to me most profoundly is the beautiful planet we live on. Even with its changing political boundaries, ecological uncertainty, and polluted waterways our planet is a miracle in our Universe. I am A Science based thinker/Designer/artist who sees the blessings and wonders in every drop of water and behind every blade of grass. I don’t mean to get too sappy, but I do feel passionately connected to our Earth. Sadly, too many humans today are just out of touch with their home​.”

Mostel’s national recognition is underscored by artist and writer, Bruce Helander who has supported her rise up the ladder. “Mostel takes the viewer on an anything goes journey” says Helander of her work. The Norton Museum of Art has featured Debbie Lee in their Art after Dark series. She is a member of the Artists of Palm Beach County, National Association of Women Artists (NAWA),Boca Museum’s Artist Guild, Lighthouse ArtCenter and Cultural Council of Palm Beach County.

“Equal Time”, was the cry from Dog Lovers, after the successful “Cat-O-Strophic Event” in October. Artists have come forward bringing both quirky and serious portraits in an endless variety of media. Many of these artists can be contacted in advance for custom portraits of individual, family pets and breeds. Unlike the “Cat-O” show, Canine enthusiasts are specific about breed preferences in their art.

Jonathan Kis-Lev was born in 1985 to Russian Jewish immigrant parents and spent his childhood years in a small village on the outskirts of Jerusalem. At the age of sixteen, Kis-Lev was granted a full scholarship to Pearson College of the Pacific in British Columbia, Canada where he studied painting, sculpture, etching and print making.

 

 

 

Eve Menes was born in Antwerp, Belgium, and at an early age, after the outbreak of World War II, moved with her family to Brazil and later to the United States. She grew up in New York. Eve received her B.A. in Art and Education at a time of great ferment in the New York art scene: The New York School of Abstract Expressionism had already established itself and Pop Art and Neo-Realism were in their first stages of development.

 

Charles Cohen’s interest with photography began over twenty years ago, and he set up a dark room in his home and developed his own black and white photographs. He began taking classes at Old School Square in Delray Beach, Florida, and he is currently continuing his studies at the Boca Raton Museum of Art where he is a member. His favorite photography is black and white, however, he does have occasion to print in color.

 

Nahariya is the northernmost coastal city in Israel. It takes its name from a stream of the Ga’aton River (Nahar in Hebrew means River.) The water source has served as a draw for settlement over thousands of years as evidenced by the ruins of a Canaanite temple which were discovered near the present day municipal beach. This temple, archaeologists believe, was dedicated to Asherath (Astarte) the Canaanite goddess of the sea and dates to approximately 1500 BCE, roughly 200 years before the Exodus of Egypt and the Children of Israel’s entry into Canaan.

 

Historians know little about the inhabitants who lived in the region during this era. The city lies on the path of the ancient trade route, the Via Maris, that linked Syria, Egypt, Anatolia, and Mesopotamia. Its proximity to Acre, a major port City, would indicate the probability that the area was continuously inhabited. A Byzantine-era church was built in what is today the heart of Nahariya. A mosaic floor of the church can still be seen, depicting flora and fauna as well as scenes of work and hunting.

 

Modern day Nahariya was conceived as an utopian model by the agronomist Dr. Selig Eugen Soskin (1873-1959). Soskin was born in Russia and studied agronomy and philosophy in Germany. By 1903 he was already one of the best known leaders of the Zionist movement. He had a good command of Russian, Yiddish, German and English, but spoke hardly any Hebrew. On one of his many trips around the world, Dr. Soskin discovered a small colony in southern Spain called Monte Algaida. The colonists intensively cultivated seven dunams each of sand dunes, on which they grew potatoes, melons, cucumbers and other vegetables, using only sunlight, underground water, and natural fertilizers produced from their animals’ manure, and compost. Each house stood on its own lot, which was just large enough to provide for the family’s needs, and to market any surplus produce. All colonists were members of various cooperatives that provided the necessary infrastructure and community services, and took care of credit and marketing the colony’s products. Soskin searched all over the world, from Latin America to China, for a suitable model for colonizing Jewish Palestine. Soskin found it in the early 1920s at the western rim of the Mediterranean. Mid-thirties Nahariya was to be mirror image of Monte Algaida on the eastern rim of the Mediterranean.
The Negev, which extends over Israel’s southern region, accounts for over half of Israel’s land area. Due to its desert character, this region is sparsely populated. Even so, the Negev has seen its share of history. Abraham built his home in Be’er Sheva, the Nabateans passed through here on caravans of camels laden with precious trade goods. Various peoples have lived in the Negev since the dawn of history: Nomads Canaanites, Philistines, Edomites, Byzantines, Nabateans, Ottomans, and of course Israelis.

 

 

The modern Israeli settlement of the Negev began about 100 years ago when a few communities were built. There were joined by another 11 settlements whose founding members built the first home in a single night. After the establishment of Israel, the new country’s first Prime Minister, David Ben Gurion, promoted the settlement of the Negev. He later moved to Sde Boker.
Griffin Gallery specializes in museum quality Ancient Art. Our holdings include over five hundred authentic artifacts that reflect a spectrum of the cultures of Antiquity in addition to Contemporary Fine Works of Art. Among our treasures are pieces from Greece, Rome, Egypt, the Far East, the Near East, the Holy Land, Pre-Columbian cultures, and pre historic Native America.
