“Collaboration: African Diaspora Exhibition” At the Center For Creative Education Offers Unique Stories Through Eyes, Hands And Lips Of The Artists Themselves

“Collaboration: African Diaspora Exhibition” at the Center for Creative Education is being produced by A.T.B Fine Artists & Designers LLC.  Opening on September 10th with a Public Reception, “Collaboration” will continue through October 21st with lectures, art demonstrations, artists talks and more. The focus is to show another aspect of art & culture in a community that many people in Palm Beach County have yet to experience. This year’s group includes artists who are originally from, reside in or are represented in the State of Florida. We believe that with the partnership of CCE & A.T.B. the “Diaspora” will be another great success.  The Rickie Report shares the details of the Exhibition, a few sneak peeks and how to RSVP.  Some of these events are FREE, but you MUST RSVP!

Collaborations2016Contemplating Michel Basquiat

“Contemplating” by Michel Basquiat

 

 

 

Their vision is to have an African Diaspora (The African diaspora was the movement of Africans and their descendants to places throughout the world – predominantly to the Americas). Trina and Anthony Burks explain,”  The concept of art itself does not have to be in reflection of the diaspora”.

 

 

Collaborations2016curators

 

Curators of “Collaboration”, Anthony Burks Sr. and Trina Slade burks

“This is the third installment of the exhibition. Originally created in 2013, the African Diaspora had displayed a vast variety of artists from around the country. We have achieved this not simply hanging art on a wall or sitting it on a pedestal. It was accomplished by unique story telling through the eyes, hands and lips of the artists themselves”.

Artwork by Anthony Burks Sr.

 

 

Anthony Burks Sr.

Anthony Burks is one of the most unique conceptual artists in America. His paintings mix colored pencils, watercolor, pen, and ink, and are characterized by his unusual choice of colors. Whether depicting birds, animals, or people, Anthony is able to convey the intertwining of their beauty and their strength. He chooses his subjects because of what they mean to him, and he tells their stories through his combination of realistic forms, bright colors, and abstract images. Anthony is also co-curator of the exhibition.

CAD 5

Artwork by Addonis Parker

Addonis Parker

Addonis Parker is a Miami artist who was nicknamed “Giant” as a child. His 6’8″ frame, is slightly intimidating at first. But his larger than life paintings speak volumes of this gentle teddy bear of a man. “I am a student of creativity and expression. My life is simply an open book to the inner world of our urban fabrics but the key to the underworld of self-truth, through the eyes of Addonis.”

Hot Kiln Glass

 

 

Hot Kiln Fused Glass: The Egyptians and Romans used the technique of an ancient fused glass process. Many intricate bowls, beautiful jewelry and decorative fused glass wall art pieces were made throughout the centuries using this method. With glass technology artists now have a greater knowledge of the method and endless creativity flourishes in their work.

 

 

ArtisansHOTencasusticandshellacafterbeingfiredIMG_6756

Encaustic Close Up

 

Encaustic Hot Wax: The word “encaustic” is taken from the Greek and means “to burn in”. In the encaustic process, pigmented wax is applied and then fused to a surface with heat. The broad range of encaustic medium, paint, surface effects, mixed media and a luminous translucency make each piece of art one of a kind.

 

 

ArtisansHOThammered metal

 

Welding: Welding is a fabrication or sculptural process that joins materials, usually metals or thermoplastics, by causing fusion. In addition to melting the base metal, a filler material is often added to the joint to form a pool of molten material (the weld pool) that cools to form a joint pressure which may be used in conjunction with heat to produce a weld.

 

 

 

 

Soldering:  Soldering is a process in which two or more items (usually metal) are joined together by melting and putting a filler metal (solder) into the joint, the filler metal having a lower melting point than the adjoining metal.

 

 

ArtisansHOTKellymanganeroIMG_1228

Sculpture by Kelly Manganaro

 

Polymer Clay: Polymer clays are manmade modeling materials composed of the same basic building materials: gels, fillers, plasticizers, coloring agents, and resins. Polymer clays are produced in a great range of colors that are sometimes mixed together creating a millefiori caning effect. The artist makes the sculptured piece by hand and then brings it to its hardened state with a temperature of up to 325 degrees Fahrenheit.

 

ArtisansHOTMarshabaliberiIMG_6520

Fused Glass by Marsha Balbierri

 

Enameling: Enameling is the art of fusing glass to metal. Enamel is applied to clean metal.  The piece is heated in either a kiln or with a torch to a very high temperature of 1500, until the glass enamel melts and fuses to the metal.

 

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Pottery by Tracy Rosof Petersen

 

Pottery and Ceramics:  Pottery has been made by hand since prehistoric times. Early uses of clay centered on the construction of functional vessels and figurative sculptures, as the clay was hardened by baking it in the sun. There are many different techniques used when working with the various selections of clay. After the clay is hand-built or turned on a potter’s wheel it is fired in a hot kiln. The piece is glazed and re-fired.
Raku is a low-fire pottery technique in which pieces are placed in a preheated kiln and brought up to temperature quickly. Then  a combustible material is added, covered, and allowed to smoke over a period of time. The element of surprise is always fun with the end results!

An afternoon with Bacco

“An Afternoon With Bacco” by Maurizio Battifora

 

 

Maurizio shares with The Rickie Report, “Although I was painting anything and everything I could as a child, I always thought I wanted to become a theater director or choreographer when I grew up. My parents encouraged my talent for painting and drawing so I became an illustrator for children’s books while attending art school. Like many other artists before me, I was encouraged by my art teachers to observe and imitate the masters that I admired”.

“Venus And The Men In Blue” by Maurizio Battifora

 

 

He goes on to say, “My inspiration still comes from Baroque and Renaissance painters. I was fascinated by the exaggerated motion, drama and tension of the paintings. It wasn’t until 2007 that I began searching for my own identity as an artist, and I evolved into a pointillist painter. Over 80% of my work is a result of empirical and intuitive development. My main body of work includes large dots of acrylic on canvas with a high contrast pointillist technique, not to be confused with Seurat’s pointillism. My technique is more graphic and bold”.

“Dare” by Maurizio Battifora

 

 

 

“I developed a pointillist style based on 5 main colors that I mix and juxtapose. I am a nomadic person and artist. I work on a small series and then move to the next idea as easily as I go back to an old one. It may take me more than 40 hours to finish a 36″ x48″ canvas. I want to communicate directly with the viewer as if they are part of the painting and not a simple spectator”, Maurizio shares.  Rather than making statements, Maurizio listens to the opinion and appreciates those who contemplate his work. “To me, that’s when Art closes the circle. My idea touches someone else’s soul and then comes back to me with their own interpretation”.

Toni Willey began drawing at an early age but her exceptional talent surfaced when she began painting. Her teachers said she painted the way Mozart played music; it just rolled off her fingers. After high school she received a National Scholastic Award of Merit from the St. Louis Art Museum. She attended Art Institute and Foundation classes at Washington University and St. Louis University, where she studied all the fine art disciplines. Her painting style is photo realistic and semi abstract done in acrylics, mixed media and watercolor.

She has working commissions from collectors all over the world and her prints sell internationally on FineArtAmerica.com. She has been highly successful with her local solo exhibits.
