“Lady” by Hayley Zimmass



Hayley Zimmass, Ceramics

Pine Ridge, FL




Hayley tells The Rickie Report, “I have been making whimsical clay figures since 1988. I try to make them fun for the buyers and fun for them and their friends to look at. The artwork has expanded over the last 26 years as I have tried new ideas and perfected new methods”.




“Dogs” by Hayley Zimmass




“New artwork is always coming into my head and new techniques for making it more whimsical and more fun are a constant, ongoing process. My bright colors are a signature part of my work, as is the blending of those colors through my airbrush techniques”.




“Fish” by Hayley Zimmass

“The figures are all sculpted from blocks of clay. They are then fired in one of my kilns to harden them. Then the colors are applied, and back into the kiln again up to a bit over 1800 degrees. Then the clear glaze is applied and the figures are again fired in the kiln to get the finished artwork”.







Kaleidoscope by Jan Kirschhof

Jan Kirchhof, Glass and Gourds

Parkland, FL


Jan tells The Rickie Report,”I have always been a crafty sort of person but did not begin my ‘art’ career until I was in my 40s, and then, it was by accident”… A girlfriend wanted to take a class in stained glass but didn’t want to go alone, so I signed up too. Little did I know that six weeks later I would be hooked! There was so much to learn that I became an apprentice, and then took a job in a commercial glass studio. In the next five years I was fortunate to work on many varied and interesting projects as well as to teach classes. 




Kaleidoscope by Jan Kirschhof




“Now I work from my home studios in Parkland, Florida and Dahlonega, Georgia doing private commissions, as well as creating inventory for the shows I participate in each year”. In addition to traditional stained glass in the lead and copper foil methods, Jan specializes in what is known as an “overlay” process. By creating a silhouette image from metal and affixing it to a piece of glass, she attains a great deal of detail in a cost effective way.




Decorative Glass by Jan Kirchhof

Jan goes on to share, “The gourd art came about, again, by accident. While shopping in a home furnishing store I chanced upon what I thought was a beautiful rustic vase. It turned out to be a gourd. I bought it and after much contemplation I decided “well shoot, I can do this”.





Gourd Art by Jan Kirchhof




She hunted down some gourds (not easy to find in south Florida) and began her journey. “A lot of what I know about gourd art has come from books and trial and error. The finer techniques I have learned in workshops from artists involved in the Florida Gourd Society. I am currently a member of the American, Florida, and Georgia Gourd Societies”.




Hand Knit by Ricki Levine



Ricki Levine, Fiber

Marco Island, FL


Ricki Levine shares, “After retirement from a career in the Computer Industry, boredom set in! I began knitting, a skill I had learned as a child. I was enthralled by the changes in the yarns and colors – and they inspired me to create my own designs. When I was out in one of my creations, people would ask to purchase one–I was amazed to discover that I had creative talent when I had only exercised the mechanical side of my brain during my career”!




Hand Knit by Ricki Levine



Ricki’s Knits are all original creations, hand knitted by her. Ricki’s products include jackets, shawls, ponchos, scarves, capes and caplets. Each unique garment is a combination of 25 yarns of different textures and colors that blend together to create a unique piece of fiber art. “My color sense and attention to detail allow me to produce designs that are both fashionable and artistic. Currently, I am in several Florida boutiques in Naples, Sanibel Island, and Coral Gables, and display my work at the Howard Alan events in South Florida. I’m not bored anymore”!



Hand Knit by Ricki Levine


As Ricki’s husband says, “Every woman looks better when they wear one of my wife’s garments”! (She tells us, “Obviously he is extremely prejudiced, but I hope you will enjoy wearing my designs as much as I enjoy creating them for you”).



This art show is a perfect setting for shoppers eager to kick off the season and get a jump-start on their holiday shopping while exploring the diverse art displays and avoiding the hectic and crowded malls. Festival patrons will have the opportunity to explore the original work of more than 200 of the finest artists in the country that have been selected from hundreds of applicants. The jury process ensures exhibits of quality work with broad appeal and prices that will be suitable to many budgets. The artists will be set up along 4th Avenue, one block north and south of Atlantic Avenue in Downtown Delray Beach.

Danuta’s Den Grand Opening

Public Reception:


Saturday, November 21st  

5:30 – 8:30pm





Danuta’s Den offers individual and group classes, seminars and workshops in mixed media, acrylic, collage, sculpture, etching in an atmosphere where beginners as well as practiced artists will feel comfortable.  Danuta excels in helping people feel spontaneous about their creativity.  She teaches at the Elliot Museum and the Boys & Girls Club.  She is a prolific artist in her own right and is eager to share her passion for creativity with individual students, groups and organizations.




From the age of eight in her native Poland, Danuta Rothschild delighted in drawing portraits of her classmates and teachers in pencil and chalks. Attending the Academy of Arts in Warsaw in 1969, Danuta rigorously developed a wide variety of techniques from watercolor and pastels to oils and sculpture. After settling in the United States in 1971, Danuta studied at Pierce College in Woodland Hills.

                                                                                      Danuta with “Indian Images”



In the past 15 years Danuta’s works have been shown in museums in Poland, France, Bosnia, and the U.S. She was a prizewinner at the L.A. 1998 World Contemporary Art International. She exhibited in Los Angeles, Santa Monica, Venice, Santa Barbara, and Laguna Beach galleries, appeared on TV shows in France and Poland, and was featured in several articles in magazines and press. Her paintings can be found in a myriad of different art books. Her work is found in prestigious private collections and institutions world wide.

“Van Gogh” Interpretations by Students

An artist of considerable breadth and stature, Danuta created a large number of series covering a wide variety of subjects. In her “Art About Art” series, she portrayed her favorite painters—Cezanne, Picasso, Rembrandt, Van Gogh, and Modigliani—combining portraits with elements of their well-known works. Half homage, half subtle mischief, these whimsical paintings are perhaps more revealing of Danuta herself than the masters she reveres.  Her “Indian Images” series, inspired by the American Southwest, shows powerful strokes and somber moods vividly focusing on the inherent character and isolation of the American Native.

Student Art Exhibit at Elliot Museum

Danuta’s social and political concerns are also expressed in “Storm of Madness,” reflecting a series of conflicts in the Middle East, paintings on America’s urban homeless, as well as “The Forgotten Children,” a project based on the plight of innocent victims of warfare and drought.  The subjects of World War II and the Holocaust are close to Danuta’s heart, and led her to paint a cycle of truly haunting works. “Silence” pays tribute to the forgotten heroes and is a passionate statement on human suffering, underscored with anguish-filled faces and ghost-like figures, taking the observer on a dark and emotionally heart-wrenching journey.

Danuta’s more recent and less solemn interests include luminously rich and otherworldly landscapes, as well as portraits for which she is most widely known. Her ability to capture the scope of human experience—from the ominous to the magically affirming—is what makes her art so powerful. The brightly hued images of Danuta’s opus, including drawings, etchings, wall-sized portraits and sculpture, eclectically coexist amidst her studio bookshelves, photos, sketches, brushes and paint-boxes that portray an artist at work.

BIG NEWS for Lake Park, FL!!!!


Here is the latest from AJ Brockman, “The Brewhouse Gallery has so much good news flying around on a daily basis that things sometimes get lost. That being said, this week marks one of the most incredible opportunities we could have ever hoped for. This is not a joke so please prepare yourselves, We have purchased an entire CITY BLOCK! That’s right, the team behind Brewhouse Gallery has taken the next step in revitalizing Lake Park and building something special by taking over ownership of the whole building. This includes bringing back the Mos’Art Theater (or as some of you may remember it the Kelsey Club). At this point we are all in… All in because we believe in what this area is becoming, the amazing support we get from all of you every day, the staff (or family as we like to say) behind us, and the ultimate vision of building a community”.





“Now, the real work begins. The sort of work that will ultimately change history. In this work we need your help… So please spread the word on what we are doing, scream it if you have to. We have a bunch of retail spaces available and we would love to hear what sort of project you might be interested in bringing to the scene. Keep an eye out for some brainstorming sessions and community forms in which we want feedback from all of you. We truly could have never imagined this journey and outcome in only a few short years, but it’s possible because of all of you and that can’t be said enough. The future is now, let’s do this!!”
