OUR IMPACT

We fill minds, not landfills. We turn almost 200,000 pounds of reusable stuff a year into classroom and alternative art materials, equipping educational programs, public workshops, and the weekend tinkerer with all sorts of unusual and inspiring resources to build, make and create with in Palm Beach County.

We have one focus in mind: inspiring individuals to make a difference in our world through environmental awareness and to participate in the ripple effect of taking small, but immediate action towards making your community a better place.

Tinker Lab Area

OUR HISTORY

1999
Resource Depot was founded. Members from the Solid Waste Authority of Palm Beach County,Children’s Services Council of Palm Beach County, the Palm Beach County School District and Florida Power & Light, came together to divert clean, safe, reusable materials that would otherwise be destined for the landfill into the hands of people who can use them for educational and artistic purposes.

2013
After several changes of location in the intervening years, we finally found the ideal home: 2510 Florida Avenue, off Belvedere in West Palm Beach. We made our big move in the fall allowing our role in the community to expand. We are still “the teacher place” but we are also SO MUCH MORE. We couldn’t be more proud of our space, and we invite you to visit any time during our shopping hours to check it out! Please note warehouse access policies.

2016
A look at what’s coming:
Making Resource Depot a Destination Location. With additions of:
Artist GalleRe
Creation Station
Drop Stop
Tinker Lab
And more educational programs on and off site for all of Palm Beach County.

 

 

 

Project Ideas!   Materials!  Recycle!  Reuse!

 

 

Teaching Artists Wanted!

Director, Patt Narozny tells The Rickie Report, “The artists taking part in the show are chosen from a large pool of applicants by a panel of judges who have 120+ years combined art experience and/or art education. To encourage participating artists to bring their finest work to the show, a second round of judging occurs on site on the first day of the art show. The results are announced on Sunday, with the best artists in each category receiving ribbons, purchase awards and cash prizes. The festival’s Executive Producer Patty Narozny also takes special precautions to ensure that all the artwork on display is personally made by the artists participating in the show. This gives attendees the confidence that they are not only seeing artists and artwork not available at other Florida art fairs, but that when they make a purchase, they are getting original, high-quality work”.

o Dave Teal, a figurative artist who is a long-time resident of Old Northwood where he both designed and built his home. Teal is  a figurative artist whose work emphasizes color, shape and the use of space to suggest images and ideas. He works in painting and drawing, as well as collage and three-dimensional forms. Teal’s work has been exhibited widely in the Northeast as well as in South Florida. For these various exhibitions his work has been selected by noteworthy curators from museums such as the Guggenheim, the Whitney and the Museum of Modern Art in New York City.

o Elizabeth Hutchinson, also known as Melo, was born and raised in South Florida. She attended Palm Beach State College for Graphic design in 2009. It was there that she was reintroduced to her love of the arts. In 2011 she began curating shows in order to shed light on the underground urban art and music scene. “My surroundings, love of fine art, and culture have helped shape my artistic identity. I describe my work as instinctive. Rarely do I sketch out subject matter or plan a color scheme. I love to work through the mishaps that occur when things are unplanned. Painting is a give-and-take process for me. Each piece is a problem or conversation that I’m working out on canvas”.

o Sam Perry, a noted artist who grew up in Northwood and focuses on abstract and the human figure.  He is now one of the area’s most accomplished artists. He achieved success as an abstract artist in galleries in Miami, New York and elsewhere. Then, in the wake of 9/11, Sam chose to focus on the human figure. “It was a paradigm shift for me”, he explained. “I became more aware of humanity and its frailty”. Sam is an active proponent of the arts in this community. A member of the faculty of the Armory Art Center since 1987, he is now the longest-serving person there. He has taught art at Florida Atlantic University, Palm Beach Atlantic University and Dreyfoos School of the Arts, in addition to private lessons. As an independent curator Sam has produced exhibitions at Palm Beach Atlantic University as well as in Northwood at Harold’s Coffee Lounge and, before that, at My Coffee House. He has an uncanny knack for discovering the worthy yet overlooked artists in our midst. Sam received all of his education in Florida. ” I like to paint because it connects me to my community”. Sam added, “I think West Palm Beach can become even more significant in the arts. The Norton is growing, and so is the population of sophisticated art-lovers”.

o Terre Rybovich, an artist born and raised in old Northwood known for her unconventional drawings.  She is a daughter of Tommie Rybovich, who designed and built world-renowned boats in Northwood. Rybovich herself has drawn since she could hold a crayon. Largely self-taught as an artist, she earned her degrees in politics and economics from NYU and the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Her first career was in social justice philanthropy. “Why do I draw?” smiles Rybovich. “As the world’s great drawers will tell you, drawing is the most direct way to perceive the world around us.” The master charcoal artist continued, “I definitely don’t see drawing as just a preliminary step to a painting.” Her drawings have been exhibited throughout South Florida, receiving critical renown. Rybovich’s “…large-scale drawings are intriguing, even if difficult to decode,” wrote the Palm Beach Post. “Fantastic reveries…skillful handling of the charcoal medium.” Another Post review praised, “Mysterious pieces…hints of hieroglyphics and a strong sense of the ethereal…an artist whose work always intrigues and puzzles—in a good way.” Now working in the Northwood Industrial District Arts, Rybovich feels deep satisfaction at the sight of the neighborhood reawakening as a creative focal point.

Art Synergy is a 501 (c) 3, not for profit arts organization founded in 2013. The fruit of the labors of Rolando Chang Barrero, Craig McInnis and Freddy Hennevelt grew out of the original Think Tank,. It has flourished through grassroots efforts beginning with a partnership with Art Palm Beach.  Currently, Rolando Chang Barrero, President and Ilene Gruber Adams, Vice President are managing the organization along with the support of many artists and art lovers in the community. Volunteers and board members are always welcome.

 

By March 2017, Art Synergy will have organized 6 juried exhibition that have provided Florida based artists to have their work seen, and collected by national and international collectors and art patrons. Also, Art Synergy assists nine Florida art districts organize, promote and market over 65 exhibitions in each year throughout the Palm Beach and Martin County durning Art Palm Beach week which was initiated January 2014.

 

 

The nine art districts are: Antique Row Art District,Boynton Beach Art District,Delray Art Art District,Lake ParkArt District,North Palm Beach Art District,Lake Worth Art District,Northwood Village Art District,West Palm Beach Art District,Palm Beach Art District.

 

 

In 2016 Art Synergy was classified as a 501 (c) 3 not for profit arts organization which will allow for contributions and donations to a fund currently being created to allow needy families join experiential cultural experiences. This was possible because of the generosity of David and Lee Ann Lester of Next Level Fairs who donate exhibition spaces (Booths) at 2 of the Next Level Fairs: Art Palm Beach and Art Boca Raton.

 

 

ART SYNERGY is a countywide movement to unify and promote the diverse culture of our vibrant arts community. ART SYNERGY’s future goals include events that will happen periodically throughout the year, the addition of more participating art districts, and initiatives that help unify the many diverse art entities, and talented artists that Palm Beach County has to offer. With the help of local CRAs, Public Arts Departments, the DDA in WPB and the Cultural Council of Palm Beach County (to name a few), ART SYNERGY has only one place to go… onward and upward.
