“Chelsea High Line” by Jeffrey Wiener

 

 

 

Jeffrey Wiener, a Miami-born New York-based artist/designer/publisher, is again offering his Life Drawing workshops to the artists of Palm Beach County. Through his website, “DRAW with JEFF” offers individual and group classes in Landscapes, Still Life, Figure Drawing, Mobile Photography, and Life Drawing with traditional tools and digital tools like the iPad. He will be holding his first workshop of 2018 at Clay Glass Metal Stone Gallery in Lake Worth on January 5th entitled “Life Drawing on Mobile Devices”.

 

 

 

 

An “Evangelist for Life Drawing”,  Jeff teaches artists to amplify their creativity by refining their skills of observation and then translating that into improved techniques. In 30 year’s as a professional designer and illustrator, Jeff has mastered dozens of traditional and digital skills for his design business’ clientele. “Drawing is the basis for that first visualization of a concept. Animators and designers in my NY workshops are always taking life drawing classes to improve their skills, and often using digital as much as traditional tools!” But Jeff promises that his mobile drawing workshops use APPS that are “easy to learn and a blast to use.”

Jeffrey Wiener Drawing with iPad 

 

Jeffrey Wiener was born in Miami, Florida in 1961, and graduated from Florida State University in 1983. He has exhibited his surrealistic drawings and paintings in galleries from Miami to New York City where he resided for many years. His entrepreneurial ventures include Dangerous Media Productions, a multi-media internet marketing firm, www.YoungMindInteractive.com, a developer of educational software, ebooks and games, and www.TheGreatNude.TV, a Figurative Arts magazine featuring videos and articles about artists who are dedicated to The Nude. His recent workshops “Figure Drawing with the iPad” were held at the esteemed Art Students League of New York.

 

 

Jeffrey tells The Rickie Report, “I love designing great drawing environments, where artists feel at ease and I can engage with them as students informally. I like to provide life models that challenge my students, and I use good lighting, colorful props and music curated to put the brain in a creative work mode. Drawing together is a very communal experience for artists, and it should be as fun and rewarding as it is challenging.”

9 am – Noon

 

 

 

Registration is requested but not required.

For more information or to register, please contact
Veronica Kelly at 561/735-6020 or by email at Veronica_Kelly@fws.gov.

 

 

Arthur R. Marshall Loxahatchee National Wildlife Refuge is excited to announce our first ever Christmas Bird Count for Kids which will be held on Saturday, December 30th, 2017 from 9:00 am-12:00 pm. The Christmas Bird Count, which began over 100 years ago, is one of the oldest wildlife surveys in not only North America, but the world. Kids and families around Palm Beach County will have a chance to become citizen scientists by taking part in this old tradition with a new twist, the Christmas Bird Count for Kids.

 

A binocular boot camp will kick-off the event in the visitor center auditorium, after which kids will divide into teams and head out into the field with volunteer experts to count and record the species of birds they locate. You may bring your own binoculars or borrow some from the refuge. Teams will meet back at the visitor center after the count for snacks and to tally their results.

This event is designed as a way for families to have fun outdoors and learn more about local birds. Kids of all birding abilities are encouraged to participate. Participants should come dressed for spending time outdoors. Children must be accompanied by their parents.

 

Help Us Grow!

Tell your friends about this hidden treasure! How many of them know we have a piece of the Everglades right here in Palm Beach County? Bring them out, and encourage them to join the Friends. Better yet, give them a gift membership!

This exhibition features trends and ideas in contemporary art as seen through the eyes of some of South Florida’s most influential artists, all of whom have given presentations at Elle Schorr’s Art Salons at the Armory Art Center over the past two years. The works, created by twenty-one locally, nationally, and internationally recognized artists will fill the Armory’s Montgomery Hall.

Sri Prabha “The Light That Brings Hope”, detail

 

 

Art Salons at the Armory have been contributing to the understanding of contemporary art practices in South Florida since April, 2012. Presentations have been given by artists about their own work, about the work of well-known artists who influenced them, and about professional artist development. The first Artists of Art Salon exhibition was in 2015 at the Armory. The show exhibited the work of fifty-seven artists who had spoken at Art Salons.

 

Kerry Phillips “Table & Yarn”

 

 

Elle Schorr said, “I am thrilled to be curating a 2nd exhibition of artists who have spoken at Art Salons. They have collectively become a “Who’s Who” of influential contemporary artists in South Florida. Many are on the faculties at South Florida universities, colleges, and high schools. Many are winners of the prestigious South Florida Cultural Consortium Awards and have exhibited locally, often nationally, and internationally. The work they show to be representative of trends in contemporary conceptual practice, including work using a wide array of materials, techniques, and technologies.”

“Electric Bamboo” by Michael Raiman

 

 

Michael Raiman has lived in Palm Beach County for 62 years inspiring him to capture the beauty of South Florida’s natural landscapes. Starting with a 35mm camera loaned to him by his father, Michael learned the art of photography and composition through workshops, seminars, and from other photographers. It was studying under Jack Wild of the Delray Beach Center for the Arts that pulled him out of his comfort zone and into new environments. Michael entered his first photography competition at Arthur R Marshall Loxahatchee Wildlife Refuge taking home the blue ribbon in one category and the Honorable Mention in another.

 

“Delicate Arch, Utah” by Michael Raiman

 

 

Since then, Michael, has won many awards and accolades for his ability to capture whatever excites him and using his lens to make the commonplace unusual. His goal is to have the viewer see the familiar in an unfamiliar way, lines leading around an image and forcing a momentary pause. Michael says this is what photography does for him, ‘It makes me slow down and really look within an environment; forcing me to be wholly present – like a meditation.’

 

“Step One” by Michael Raiman Worth Avenue Series

 

Michael chairs the Lake Worth Art League’s Photography Group and was selected to be a leader in this year’s Scott Kelby’s Worldwide PhotoWalk. He and his wife, Lynne Ottimer, recently celebrated 30 years in their Delray Beach home with their three feline friends. They are active members in the South Florida arts community and in the Palm Beach Bromeliad Society. More about Michael and his photos and to inquire about commission work can be found at www.MichaelRaimanPhotography.com.

Another feature in the exhibit is on loan from the grandson of Solomon R. Guggenheim, a commissioned art that has unlimited sentimental value, a gift from the Guggenheim children. It is a tile-topped coffee table painted with an image of the family’s famous museum in New York City. Further, as a tribute to the work in the collection of the Jupiter Island Arts Council, the Lighthouse ArtCenter will exhibit original Highwaymen pieces as well as the celebrated Florida scenic oils from A. E. “Beanie” Backus and his great nephew, Kevin Hutchinson Hutchison. Selected pieces of the exhibited art will be available for purchase.

According to curator Janeen Mason, “We are honored by this opportunity to share the creative spirit of our gifted neighbors who enjoy homes just a stone’s throw from the Lighthouse ArtCenter. To see through the eyes of another, to recognize meaningful art, whether of great monetary value, collectible value, sentimental value, or simply curiosities that make you scratch your head in wonder… This is an experience you won’t want to miss.”

Nancy Politsch, Executive Director of the Lighthouse ArtCenter, says, “We hope all of Palm Beach and Martin counties will make time to visit the gallery while we have this inspiring collection of extraordinary art. Through their gracious philanthropic gesture, these families are sharing a look at their personal commitment to the humanities. Now more than ever it’s imperative we celebrate their support.”
