Invites You

Monthly Meeting Featuring:

 

Fiber Artist, Leora Klayner Stewart

Wednesday, February 4th

 9 am – 1 pm

Armory Art Center

1700 Parker Avenue       W.Palm Beach, FL 33401

(561) 832-1776

 

 

The South Florida Basket and Fiber Guild was formed in January 2013 by a dozen enthusiastic fiber artists from Palm Beach and Broward Counties. Our purpose is to provide educational and promotional opportunities for members, both individually and as a group. We welcome all fiber artists who have a common interest in creating baskets, vessels and other woven creations to collaborate in an environment of camaraderie and fellowship. Our guild is open to weavers at all levels to share their art.  We are affiliated with the Florida Tropical Weavers Guild and the National Basketry Organization.

 

"Life Cycle" by Leora Stewart

“Life Cycle” by Leora Klayner Stewart

 

We are fiber artists and enthusiasts from around South Florida who share diverse, but allied interests including basketry, weaving, knitting, crochet, needlework, felting and beading. By coming together as a guild, we hope to inspire interest and creativity in basketry and the fiber arts among both emerging and seasoned artists through networking, educational programs and exhibitions.

 

 

Meetings are the first Wednesday of each month from 9:00 am – 1:00 pm at the Armory Art Center in West Palm Beach. Informal meetings or weave-ins may be held during the summer months. Meeting details including topics/speakers and directions are listed in the news and events section, our newsletter and posted on our Facebook page.

 

"Virgin Bride" by Leora Klayner Stewart

“Virgin Bride” by Leora Klayner Stewart

 

Leora tells The Rickie Report, “These abstract constructions are based on my observations of forms and structures found in nature. Layers are the focus of my work in several ways: as components of physical structure, as elements of process, and as metaphor for constant change and growth. The materials are natural fibers, hand-made papers, bamboo reeds, metal wires, glass beads and other found objects. I manipulate these materials using a variety of techniques to construct the pieces, which I refer to as “Landscape Structures.”

Peggy Greenfield Exhibits at Whitespace Collection’s Booth at ArtPalmBeach and at “Contempo” at the Lighthouse ArtCenter

Whether working with a camera, clay, paint, found objects or torn paper, Peggy Greenfield finds the act of creating art to convey ideas and express feelings challenging and fascinating. Known for her ceramic sculptures and abstract paintings, this year, first in California and now in here in Florida, Ms. Greenfield’s photography has come to the fore. This month Ms. Greenfield’s work will be featured by Whitespace Collection at Art Palm Beach (Booth # 715)  and at “Contempo” at Lighthouse ArtCenter in Tequesta. The Rickie Report shares some views of her work and all the details here.

Wednesday January 21 To Sunday, January 25th

"Glitz" by Peggy Greenfield

“Glitz” by Peggy Greenfield

 

 

As a photographer, Ms. Greenfield has traveled extensively throughout the world and photographed everyday events, objects and scenes that excite her imagination. She’s done the same in her own neighborhoods — for instance, the round photographs above were taken on a sunny afternoon on Flagler Drive in West Palm Beach. Her concept is to select from her extensive files of photographs groups of images that together form master ideas. As a cell, each image is a sliver of reality, but shown together they create a unified story: a time; a place; a feeling; an emotion; an experience; an impression. The aggregated photographs are intended to be sculptural, as the colors and patterns of a collection of prints shape a more visceral dialogue.

 

 

 

"Fantasy" by Peggy Greenfield

“Fantasy” by Peggy Greenfield

 

 

Each of the works on exhibition at both ArtPalmBeach and the Lighthouse ArtCenter is an original, signed, limited edition aggregate comprised of from four to as many as twenty-four archival pigment prints. The images are either heat fused onto aluminum or, alternatively, printed onto acid-free paper and framed. In his critical survey of contemporary artists, “Learning to See,” Bruce Helander describes Ms. Greenfield’s work as the product of “pushing creative barriers” by an “informed imagination,” demonstrating a “willingness to explore risk with the nuances of her art.”

 

"Houses" by Peggy Greenfield

“AUGPILATOQ” by Peggy Greenfield

 

 

Ms. Greenfield studied art at Wesleyan University (Middletown, CT) and Dickinson College (Carlisle, PA); and at workshops in Santa Fe (NM), the Armory Art Center (Florida) and Anderson Ranch (Colorado). She earned a master’s degree in communications from Cornell University, a bachelor’s degree from Brooklyn College, and studied at Exeter College, Oxford University, England. In addition, she holds a law degree from Dickinson Law School and is admitted to practice before the Supreme Court of the United States and other state and federal courts.

 

 

"Exuberance" by Peggy Greenfield

“Exuberance” by Peggy Greenfield

 

Prior to attending law school Ms. Greenfield taught at Cornell University (NY) and Wesleyan University (CT). In 1999, after many years of practicing law in Philadelphia, she and her husband, Richard D. Greenfield, formed the law firm of Greenfield & Goodman, LLC.

 

 

 

Since 2004, Ms. Greenfield has concentrated solely on her art. Her work is in private and prominent public collections, including the University of California, CitiBank and the Davison Art Center of Wesleyan University (CT). She has studios in Florida and California and has exhibited at one-person and group shows in the United States and New Zealand. In 2014 her photography was featured in one-person shows at Smith-Andersen North Gallery in California and at PNC in Florida.

Armory Art Center Offers Two Fascinating Exhibits and Welcomes Public to Free Reception

The Armory Art Center brings two fascinating artists to our area who ask how we see and perceive the world around us.  Harlan Hoffman’s paintings are a direct product of his belief that art is a 24/7 commitment, an existential soul searching process, which begins with finding one’s special and unique voice.  Andy Mayer, a retired physician, began his artistic career working in wood, metal, horn to build art furniture and other unusual pieces. Some of his paintings utilize molded anatomical objects, while others borrow from his woodworking objects. Both exhibitions will include sculpture, painting, and mixed media. The Rickie Report shares the details, as the public is invited to the exhibits and FREE Opening Reception on January 16th for both artists.

Wood Object by Andy Mayer

 

Harlan Hoffman’s paintings are a direct product of his belief that art is a 24/7 commitment, an existential soul searching process, which begins with finding one’s special and unique voice. His works derive less from thought than from a scattered receptivity and openness, a letting go of what’s known.

 

 

Painting by Harlan Hoffman

Painting by Harlan Hoffman

Harlan received a BFA from Brooklyn College and a Masters in Philosophy from the New School in New York. He ran a very successful fabric design business in New York and worked with the visual merchandising departments of nearly every major department store in the U.S. and a few in Europe. His clients included Barnes & Noble, Saks Fifth Ave., Lord & Taylor, Bergdorf Goodman, Bloomingdales, Macy’s, Harrods (London), Eaton Co. Canada, World Savings, and Bonwit Teller. His fabrics and wall coverings are in the collection of the Smithsonian through the Cooper Hewitt Museum in New York. He has taught at the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising and the Armory Art Center.

 

"Self Portrait" by Andy Mayer

“Self Portrait” by Andy Mayer

 

Retired physician, Andy Mayer, brings unique insight to his work. He began his artistic career working in wood, metal, horn, and other material to build art furniture and other unusual pieces. He later moved on to oil painting. Some of his paintings utilize molded anatomical objects such as hands and feet. Others borrow from his woodworking objects. The exhibit also ranges to portraits and works that are based on subtle twists in how we see the world about us.

 

 

 

The Armory is grateful for the generosity of its partners. The opening reception is sponsored by Whole Foods Market.

Bobbin is a well known local watercolor and acrylic artist. She began as a self taught artist but later studied at the Armory Art Center, the Women of Visual Arts (WITVA) Studio in Delray Beach, private lessons and workshops with well-know artists.

 

Bobbin's "Water Lily", inspired by a trip to the

Bobbin’s “Water Lily”, inspired by a trip to the NY Botanical Gardens’ Monet Exhibit

 

As a child Bobbin began using oils but later switched to watercolors because of the quick drying time and easy cleanup. Her love of boats and the sea came from her Dad taking her down to the docks and dreaming about owning a boat someday. Her paintings are displayed in the Wellington Community Center and City Hall Gallery. She recently had a three month SOLO exhibit at the Wellington Whole Foods Gallery. She won an honorable mention at the summer Art of Association Exhibit at the Lighthouse ArtCenter in Tequesta.

 

 

Bobbin's "Docked"

Bobbin’s “Docked”, inspired by the Boat Dock in Montauck, NY

 

Bobbin tells The Rickie Report, “The Ocean can bring your senses to a wonderful place. When I feel the sand under my feet, smell the salty air, hear the thunder of the surf, or see the rolling waves, my spirit immediately experiences the peace only nature can give. Through this peace I have been inspired to share my ability to use paint brush, paper, paint & of coarse water to create my artwork. The serenity and peace I feel melts my spirit and my personal peace into all my creations”.

 

 

Bobbin's "Silly Selma"

Bobbin’s “Silly Selma”

Bobbin illustrated a book with Deborah Desser Herchan, “Mumbo Jumbo” (seen below) and has authored and illustrated her own book, “Silly Selma” (seen above).  She is working on the next book in the “Silly Selma” series.

Bobbin teaches Beginning and Intermediate traditional watercolor classes as well as wet on wet techniques in my home, at Jerry’s Artarama in West Palm Beach and at Art & Sea Living Studio.  While she teaches mostly watercolors, she does have a few Acrylic students, learning the basics of painting.

 

"Fractured Palms" by Bobbin Salisbury

Bobbin also teaches Fun art!  “Paint-A-Party” is class where each student completes a painting in two hours.  She says, ” Come to my classes and you will see. The beauty of the underpainting just creates the most vivid transparencies. The Glazing becomes a natural technique which you can use in any other type of technique!!”  Additionally,Bobbin actively creates ATC (Artist Trading Cards) and Altered Journal books.

Painting by Burgess

Gold Leaf Painting by Michael Burges

 

Michael Burges, who lives and works in Germany and Italy, will show work from his Gold series. Employing a unique technique of reverse glass painting with 23.75 carat gold leaf Burges creates large ‘paintings’ with an extraordinary color presence, aesthetic precision, and visual impact. His work does not suggest a narrative meaning, it acts through their qualities of light and reflection and coincidental color patterns. The glass pane functions simultaneously as a division and a portal of intensified insight. They are like painterly objects without narration, but with an enormous presence of light and rhythm.

 

 

 

 

 

"Familie Purdy" by Katherina Mayer

“Familie Purdy” by Katharina Mayer

Katharina Mayer’s project Familia focuses on the family as a central nexus of meaning. Families are arguably the most important institution for the dissemination of ethical and moral values. Religion, togetherness, the ability to manage conflict, responsibility, love, and tolerance are generally passed on in families. In these large family photographs Katharina employs simple, staged, stylistic conventions to intervene in the visual narratives. She discovers and experiments with the boundaries between private and public and is able to capture these families in their most familiar and often most psychologically revealing contexts.

 

 

Katharina will be available to take commissioned photographs in private homes from December 8th through December 14th. To inquire about pricing and to make arrangements for a commissioned portrait please contact the Armory at 561-832-1776 x13.

NAWA is the oldest professional women’s fine arts group in the United States. In 1889, five innovative women in New York City founded the not-for-profit, tax exempt organization to foster public awareness and interest in visual art created by women as well as to empower, support and encourage women artists. Its early exhibitions included works by such notable artists as Mary Cassatt and Suzanne Valadon, and later membership rosters included Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney, Louise Nevelson, Alice Neel, and Judy Chicago.

Zammy Migdal Sculpture

Zammy Migdal Sculpture

 

 

 

❖ Zammy Migdal, a native of Tel Aviv, Israel, has created a language in metal that transforms spaces and walls into shapes, colors and shadows. In his work, energy flows to form clarity, definition, and purpose. He shapes metal into forms, but it is the emptiness inside the forms that holds the shadows. While some of his very architectural work is firmly grounded on Earth, other work has its origins in his interest to suspend objects against gravity. Such work is created by the relationships among metal foregrounds, attaching pins, spaces, light and shadows, in which hard metal resembles ribbons that flow and twist in the wind.

 

 

 

Zammy Migdal is also showing large polychrome steel sculptures from
October 25, 2014-April 30, 2015- Morris and Rose Kraft Sculpture Gardens

❖ Gudrun Kemsa’s photographic works and Video Installations are depictions of space, time and movement. Her eye is focused on urban space where she documents the course of events in streets and in open public places. Her video installations are designed as large projections for indoor or outdoor spaces. In their actions and timelines, they lead the viewer to experiences of space and time. Since 2002, Kemsa has been producing video works in analogy to human vision, this is done in constant motion. Her indoor video installations at the Armory will range from works done in the Ruhr valley of her native Germany to works produced in China and the US.
