Artnado’s Special Discount Deadline Is August 1st

While exhibit spaces will still be available, the special discount deadline for artists’  booth space and the special offer for Non-Profit art related organizations is August 1st.   Thus far, over 75 artists have applied for the early discount.  Artists from as far away as Brazil will be participating in this new, innovative exhibition.   The Rickie Report shares the details for Art Associations and Art-Related Non-Profits Organizations to receive FREE 10 x 10 booth spaces! We remind our readers that ARTNADO and Artistic Synergy Inc. is a different entity from Art Synergy/Art Palm Beach.

 

 

artnado-ad-1-30-15

 

 

 

 

Jack Busa, Chief Creative Executive, is announcing a gift of FREE 10×10 space for all area Art Associations and Art related Non-Profits. He tells The Rickie Report, “This will enable your organization to inform the public about what you do, in addition to offering membership opportunities and displaying examples of past and current events. Your members will be able to display but not sell their work from your space. Because ARTNADO is already offering the lowest price per square foot for juried art shows, we understand that artists are concerned about their expenses. Therefore, any member of an organization that takes advantage of this offer, will be given a 10% rebate on the price of the exhibition space they choose to display and sell their art.”

 

 

Any artists who has taken part in an Art Marketing Seminar involving Rickie Leiter, Publisher of The Rickie Report will be eligible for a 15% rebate on individual booth space. Fill out the ZAPP and then send a separate email to Artistic Synergy Inc telling them you have been a participant.

 

 

 

Jack explains, “Since all applications need to be submitted through ZAPP there is no provisions for a two-tier pricing structure. Hence a refund check will be issued ARTNADO’s move-in date on November 13th.”

 

 

This offer, when combined with the options of either a 10×10, 10×20 and even a 20×20 “personal gallery” exhibition area, offers an unprecedented exposure for most of the area’s artist.

 

 

UPCOMING STUDENT ART CONTEST

 

 

In addition, a Student Art Contest will be formally announced soon. If you know any young artists who would like to get an early start, the information is available on our website artisticsynergy.org.

 

 

ARTNADO is looking for partners to be Drop-Off Centers for Student Artwork around the County. Please email or call to make arrangements. You will be included in future advertising, marketing and promotions!

 

 

For more information send an e-mail to artisticsynergy@mail.com requesting a space and you will be called to confirm the details.

If you have any questions, please call 561-557-8741 and ask to speak directly to Jack Busa.

Tracy Rosof-Petersen Removing a large ceramic bowl from the kiln

The technique of Raku pottery happens when art is removed from a gas kiln at around 1800 degrees with gloved hands and tongs lifted from burning flame, dropped into a metal container with combustibles. The glaze crackles from the heat of the flame.

Marcia Barbieri's Fused Glass Plate

Marsha Barbier’s Fused Glass Plate

Ceramic artists form their art using clay and prominent, striking glazes that are fired in a kiln numerous times. Exciting, magnificent colors are produced when glazes are applied to bisque clay, re-fired up to 2300 degrees in a red hot kiln.

Encaustic wax is an age old process using hot wax and oils. Hot wax painting involves beeswax to which colored pigments are added and kept molten on a heated palette. After being applied to an absorbent surface, you create an original piece of art. The fun part of encaustic wax is adding mixed media inclusions, photos or any absorbent material. The possibilities are endless.

 

"Past The Garden Gate"

A metal artist using a welding torch combines the cool metal pieces to the heat of the torch to create sculptures or functional pieces such as lamps and furniture. Some of our paper artists brandish the edges of their finished assemblages to give them an aged antique look as the heat of the flames burns the edges.

 

Metal Sculpture by Kelly Dean Manganero

Jewelry artists achieve an individual look in their pieces by using heat. When jewelry is connected together with a soldering tool the heat presses against the cool metal to join the pieces. A different patina is created with flame and various chemicals used make each piece a unique form of art to wear.

 

 

Glass Beaded Necklace by Irene Jalowayski

Artists that work with various woods can create a very different effect with a selected branding or engraving tool. The wood branded with the heat tool will then achieve an interesting design or sometimes a personalized engraving. The finished piece has a special look that compliments the wood used.

 

"Cool Jazz" Fused Glass by Betty Wilson

“Cool Jazz” Fused Glass by Betty Wilson

Our glass artists use various techniques such as glass formed with the HOT flame of a torch, glass blowing, casting and fused glass in a kiln firing. Fused glass is one of the oldest, sophisticated techniques in hot glass sometimes referred to as “warm glass”. It is an exciting interplay of light and color to look in the glowing red hot kiln and see the soft molten liquid melting together in brilliant form.

 

Gabriele Kraus' Ceramic Sculpture

Gabriele Kraus’ Ceramic Sculpture

One of the biggest thrills of firing a kiln is fifteen hours later when the artist opens the kiln lid and views the fascinating and extraordinary design that has emerged! Due to the handcrafted nature of many techniques used and the multiple series of kiln firings at temperatures ranging from 1200 to 2300 degrees, this makes ceramics and glass one of a kind art  – where no two pieces are ever alike.

Suzanne explains to The Rickie Report, “What I love about fiber art is the surprise element – the mixture of the fabric, the dye and the resist create different combinations of results that are only revealed at the final step…the magic when the freshly dyed indigo comes out of the vat and turns from green to blue right before your eyes! It is always a surprise when I unwrap a freshly dyed piece of fabric! I currently specialize in Shibori and Batik. For me, these art forms are an excuse to use vibrant colors and simple shapes to produce designs, without having to worry too much about the details –just as in life, there are no “mistakes” with fiber, and everything is always subject to change. The imperfections are all part of the creative process. I’m always learning new techniques and experimenting so I can share them with my students. Every piece created is a unique one of a kind original!”

Pamela Acheson Myers' "Under Blue Waters"

Pamela Acheson Myers’ “Under Blue Waters”

 

Pamela shares some insights with The Rickie Report, ” Intense color has thrilled me for as long as I can remember, whether it appears in a spectacular sunset, or a wildly wallpapered room, or a tropical bird’s brilliant rainbow of feathers.”

Pamela goes on to share, “When I was nine, my parents took me to Nantucket Island. The multitude of colors and reflections created by the meeting of land, water, and sky dazzled me. Since then I have had a non-stop love affair with watery vistas and the reflections they create, all over the world, from Newport to the Florida Keys to Venice (Italy) to the fjords of Chile. For me, every one of these views is a magic moment, a natural canvas of colors and reflections existing only in the moment.”

“But I don’t always paint landscapes. Many times I simply want to play around with color, experimenting with paints and surfaces. My purely abstract paintings (acrylic on canvas, linen, coated canvas, plastic, paperboard, and paper) are my tribute to the extraordinary nature of color.”
