Amy Broderick’s creative practice encompasses studio production, art writing, excellence in teaching, and academic leadership. She uses the processes of drawing and paper construction to explore the methods we humans use to locate ourselves relative to our physical and information environments. Amy teaches her students to do what all scholars (and responsible citizens) do: engage passionately with the world and with their field; devour new knowledge, influences, and inspiration; integrate and own all of these, weaving them into their scholarly selves; and then articulate their knowledge, passions, and questions through sincere, honest, researched, and elegant original works.

 

Amy earned her BA in Studio Art at the College of William and Mary, where she graduated Magna Cum Laude and Phi Beta Kappa. She earned her MFA in Painting at the Hoffberger School of Painting at the Maryland Institute College of Art, where she studied with Grace Hartigan. In 2000, Amy joined the faculty at Florida Atlantic University as Assistant Professor of Art in the Wilkes Honors College. She was the first fine artist on the new college’s faculty.

 

 

Over the course of four years, Amy developed and implemented a fine arts curriculum and concentration within the Honors College’s interdisciplinary liberal arts curriculum. She was then invited to lead the redevelopment of the foundations curriculum in FAU’s School of the Arts, where she earned tenure and now serves as Associate Professor of Drawing and Painting and Foundations Program Coordinator.

 

Amy has won numerous awards for teaching and scholarly activity, including the Award for Excellence and Innovation in Undergraduate Teaching (FAU), Master Teacher Award (FAU), Honors Faculty Fellowship (FAU), Florida Individual Artist Fellowship, and South Florida Cultural Consortium Fellowship for Visual and Media Artists. She was recently awarded an Emerging Arts Administrator Fellowship by the National Council of Arts Administrators (NCAA).

 

 

Amy has exhibited extensively at venues that include Miami Art Museum, Jacksonville Museum of Contemporary Art, Sarratt Gallery at Vanderbilt University, School 33 in Baltimore, and Tomio Koyama Gallery in Tokyo, Japan. She has also published scholarly articles and exhibition reviews in SECAC Review, FATE in Review, and the Palm Beach ArtsPaper.

 

 

Amy serves on the Board of Directors of the Southeast College Art Conference as the board’s Florida representative. She also serves on the Alumni Council of the Maryland Institute College of Art, and she represents Miami and Palm Beach on the council’s Regional Initiatives Committee. Amy lives in Jupiter, Florida with her husband, Mark, and their sons.

Stan Dornfest tells The Rickie Report, ““I have always felt most spiritual when I am physically and emotionally enveloped by a landscape. The mystical state of mind that these inspiring locales transport me to, is what I strive to reflect in my painting. For me, rather than merely documenting topography, painting is more about expressing the spiritual journey that the world of nature transports me to.”

“Luminous” by Stan Dornfest

 

 

 

“I prefer to paint in Acrylics because I actually like the quick drying time, the versatility of the mediums and the quick clean up time which fits into my life. I developed and taught a course for design students called:”Art Direction-Expanding Your Options. The course explored different career paths that Design/Art students could take”.

“Afternoon In The Azores” by Stan Dornfest

 

 

“My elementary school teacher summoned my mother to the classroom to explain to her that she felt that I was very talented in Art. She offered to loan me her oil paints over the summer so that I could continue painting. My mother explained to her that she could afford to purchase a set of oil paints for me. Not only did my mother buy the paints, but she researched and found courses for me to take on Saturdays at The Brooklyn Museum Art School and Brooklyn College, which nurtured my life long passion for painting. From an early age, I was always painting. After High School, I was fortunate to get accepted to The Cooper Union Art School. After Cooper, I pursued a long, successful career as an Advertising Creative/Art Director but during that time – I continued to paint. As my advertising career tapered off-my painting endeavors expanded”.

Stan received a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree from Cooper Union. While pursuing his career as a Creative/Art Director in the New York Advertising Industry, he continued to explore his passion for Painting. “In New York, my solo shows include: The Donald Gallery, Dobbs Ferry, New York and Heritage Gallery, Tarrytown, New York. I was a member of the Faculty at Parsons School of Design.  In Florida, my paintings have been shown at The Boca Raton Museum of Art, The Cornell Art Museum, The Coral Springs Center for the Arts, Loxahatchee National Wildlife Center, Lighthouse ArtCenter,  Armory Art Center, Artists Alley, and The Artists Guild Gallery.  I am a Participating Signature Member of the Boca Museum Artists’ Guild . My work is represented in Public and Private Collections in The US and Canada”.

The arts-based programs we provide are a very powerful way to improve these students’ chances of success; both academically and personally. CCE also works with advanced students who benefit from the opportunity to delve deeply into subjects through the arts and develop their creative thinking and problem solving skills. At our Center, in the Northwood Village section of West Palm Beach,we provide arts instruction for children and adults, we host art shows in our Gallery and serve as a base for many community activities. It’s also home to our administrative offices.  For more information: www.cceflorida.org

Robert tells The Rickie Report, “I am attracted to organic form and energy whether it is found in nature, figure or movement. There is an energy in dance I am attracted to, something that takes over the dancer through their movements. This energy can also be found in a static form of living things. Sometimes it is used to convey a feeling or mood, other times to make a statement.”

 

 

The Wellington Art Society is a non-profit charitable organization In its 35th year. It is open to artists of all mediums and patrons of the arts, allowing both local and regional artists to display their art work in local galleries, interact with other artists and serve the community through their art.

Elle Schorr reflected in work by Anish Kapoor at Art Miami

 

 

“We came, we looked, we each curated our own personal collection of favorite Miami Art Week / Art Basel / Art Fair works of art. Each of us was drawn to different locations and to different works. We found connections to the kinds of work we do, or inspirations for new directions, new techniques, new materials, new ideas. One thing is for sure – no one saw it all”… Terre Rybovich, Sandra Schulman and Elle Schorr are joining together to share the work that each found most meaningful.

 

 

ArmoryartsalonInstallation view

Installation View

 

Terre Rybovich has drawn all her life. After a career in social activism, she returned to charcoal and paper with a new way of working, drawing “backward”, removing charcoal from paper with her body. The initial imprints were so dense with stories that she let them guide the drawings’ completion. That openness, plus years of figure drawing, generated a new art practice of subtlety. Her new work often incorporates nature and embodies her view that separation is an illusion. She says, “Prizing our individuality, we too often overlook our interconnectedness. My activism forged an enduring commitment to this world. It also instilled a courageous drive that I’m now channeling into art-making. I’m a daughter of Tommie Rybovich, noted boat designer and builder, and an heir to his self-guided vision and ambition for the work. It has been gratifying to have my work in the Drawing Center’s slide registry in New York since 2004. ”

This year during Miami Art Week, Terre was an artist on a mission, looking at works on paper and galleries that seem like a good home for her work. Despite the traffic, she made it to Miami Project/Works on Paper, Pulse and Art Basel, and will share some of what she found.

This December, and through the end of January, Sandra is gallery manager for the largest of the 9 venues for “100 + Degrees In The Shade”, a definitive survey exhibition of South Florida Art curated by Jane Hart, with over 170 participants, which took place in Miami and Broward Counties. The venue she manages is at 3900 N Miami Avenue. Sandra also wrote one of the three texts for the full color, hardcover 220 page book of that exhibition. “Rumble”, a film she consulted on, is premiering at the Sundance Film Festival 2016, based on an exhibition at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of the American Indian that she co-curated. She will share her experiences about the exhibition space she is managing, as well as other spaces for 100+ in the Shade and other Art Galleries and shows she found most interesting.

Her work has been exhibited in shows and galleries across the country, receiving many awards and honors.

Emily Dvorin, Contemporary Fiber Artist

Emily tells The Rickie Report, “I call myself a sculptural basketmaker. I am known for my innovative, “transordinary” vessels. Challenging the original definition of basketry, I explore contemporary interpretations of this traditional craft, utilizing non-traditional materials. I transform the ordinary through the processes of manipulation, construction, alteration, repetition of singular elements, coiling, weaving and assembling to create dense arrangements of common, urban objects. I sculpt with fiber and interact with material, pattern, color, design, shape and texture.”

 

 

Growing up in New Jersey in the 50s,, Emily Dvorin was told that her creativity and artistic approach were “cute”. A sea kelp basket workshop in the early 80s changed her life forever: she realized that basketry and three-dimensional work were what she truly loved. Largely self-taught, Emily began offering workshops the 90s and in the early 2000s brought basketry classes to elementary and high school classrooms. In 2008, after owning and operating a contemporary craft store for 35 years, and enabling other artists to gain wider audience and appreciation for their work, Emily retired to live her life’s dream of being a full-time artist. She now has a studio in Sausalito, California. She continues to teach classes for both adults and children, and she speaks, consults and exhibits all around the country. This year she became president of the National Basketry Organization.
Emily’s presentation for the guild, TRANSORDINARY VESSELS, will highlight her work as a sculptural basketmaker using materials from the hardware store, cable ties and other found objects to create whimsical and imaginative art pieces

 

 

 

Emily will also be giving a 2 day workshop, APPROACHING BASKETRY, on Thursday and Friday, Jan 7 – 8, 2016. Through a hands-on approach to many basketry techniques we will explore process, structure, design and surface texture while experimenting with a variety of materials. Beginners and experienced artists alike will enjoy this unique look into contemporary basketry.

 

 

 

Members will receive registration preference, however, a limited number of seats may be available for the public beginning Dec. 16th. For workshop information contact Erica Howat at ericahowat@mac.com

 

About South Florida Basket and Fiber Guild:

The South Florida Basket and Fiber Guild was formed in January 2013 by a dozen enthusiastic fiber artists and enthusiasts from Palm Beach and Broward Counties. Our purpose is to inspire interest and creativity in basketry and the fiber arts among both emerging and seasoned artists through networking, educational programs and exhibition opportunities.  Meetings are the first Wednesday of each month from 9:00 am – 12:30 pm at the Armory Art Center in West Palm Beach. Anyone with an interest in basketry and the fiber arts is welcome to join us.  Meeting details including topics/speakers and the membership form are available on our website.
