Theo will be reading from her book, “Dirty Secrets”, at intervals throughout the evening. Her poems are funny, sad, scandalous, touching and profound.  All of her written and spoken words translate into the visual art she creates.  She is the “complete package.”  Her art collection is sprinkled with tastefully naughty characters parading though a variety of scenes and positions, sure to catch your eye.  Look for the little man in Yoga position.

 

 

"Princess and the Pea"

“Princess and the Pea”

 

A skilled silversmith and jeweler, several cases are filled with her works.  From lost wax cast silver works to wire sculpture pins and earrings, there are no more craftily skilled pieces to be found.  A former gemstone buyer and designer for a prestigious New York shop, she has recreated the style for the gallery with pieces priced to sell.

 

 

"Portrait of a Male in Clay"

Many of Theo’s paintings, collages and photographs will be on display for this exhibit.  Although a 3-D gallery, members are welcome to display 2-D art as well.  Each medium she works in is executed to perfection.  The wit of her poetry rings true in all of her other works.

Art Talks:

 

Wednesday, February 5 at 2:30 p.m. – “Discovering an Ancient Culture through the Contemporary Art Movement of Australia’s Aboriginal People,” by Jennifer Guerinni-Maraldi

 

While travelling in Australian in the early 1990s, Guerinni-Maraldi and her husband purchased a major work by Freddie Timms,“Sugar Bag,” (acrylic on canvas, 180 x 230 cm) painted during the artist’s time working with Frank Watters (Watters Gallery) in Sydney. This magical painting was the single catalyst that spurred Guerinni-Maraldi to begin exhibiting and selling contemporary art in London in the new millennium. Each year, she travels to Australia visiting remote indigenous communities, curators, collectors and artists. Her efforts in the United Kingdom aim to establish a greater awareness of high quality indigenous work and to build a stronger market for ethically sourced, contemporary Australian indigenous fine art.

 

Thursday, February 6 at 2:30 p.m. – “Contemporary Chinese Brush Painting” by Michael Goedhuis

 

For the last 20 years, Michael Goedhuis has been at the forefront of the popularization of contemporary Chinese art. Goedhuis will examine that tradition, its relevance today, and how new works can be combined with ancient material. Goedhuis has held many exhibitions on the new Chinese brush painters, most recently at the Saatchi Gallery in London in 2013.

 

Saturday, February 8 at 2:30 p.m. – “Cathleen Naundorf, Fashion Photographer to the Stars,” by Holden Luntz

 

Holden Luntz of Holden Luntz Gallery Palm Beach presents a look inside Naundorf’s series on haute couture fashion including her work for Chanel, Dior, Jean Paul Gaultier, Lacroix, Elie Saab, Lagerfeld and Valentino. Her artistic process through this series was very thorough as she researched the history of the houses, explored the archives of the couturiers, and chose the models, hair and makeup. With her research, she created lively storyboards, as well as written summaries of her productions, which include personal interviews with designers.

 

 

Sunday, February 9 at 2:30 p.m. – “Fauxbergé: Spectacular Master Forgeries – Five Case Studies,” by Geza von Habsburg

Call to 3D Artists! Studio Space Available

The Rickie Report is pleased to announced there is new studio space for 3D Artists in Lake Worth!  The Flamingo Clay Studio of Lake Worth in a 501(c)(3) non-profit cooperative whose mission is to provide affordable gallery and studio space for 3-D artists.  The Flamingo Clay Studio, in partnership with the Benzaitan Foundation, will be bringing affordable studio space to Lake Worth.  The Benzaitan project, under the direction of JB Berkow, of the Rosetta Stone Gallery in Jupiter, will be building a large foundry and a glass blowing studio in what was formerly a large train depot.  The Rickie Report understands the needs of the community for this complex and salutes the artists who will be founders of this new venture!  More details are in this article.

 

 

Call to Artists

New Studio Space for 3-D Artists Comes to Lake Worth

First 30 Artists wanted ASAP

 

 

The Flamingo Clay Studio of Lake Worth in a 501(c)(3) non-profit cooperative whose mission is to provide affordable gallery and studio space for 3-D artists.  For nearly five years the non-profit has been running Clay Glass Metal Stone Gallery in Downtown Lake Worth.

 

 

The Flamingo Clay Studio, in partnership with the Benzaitan Foundation, will be bringing affordable studio space to Lake Worth.  The Benzaitan project, under the direction of JB Berkow, of the Rosetta Stone Gallery in Jupiter, will be building a large foundry and a glass blowing studio in what was formerly a large train depot.

 

The Flamingo Clay Studio will be adding a kiln complex to the Benzaitan site.  The kiln complex will consist of a wood-burning kiln, several large gas reduction kilns, a soda ash/salt kiln, raku kilns and pits for pit firing.

 

 

Across the alley from the Benzaitan site the Flamingo Clay Studio has rented space for a full service ceramic studio.  This studio will house an electric kiln room (for clay and warm glass kilns), a bank of  potters’ wheels, glaze mixing and clay mixing areas, a glazing area with a spray booth, sand blaster, a small metals area, a small fused glass studio, and lots of studio work space for clay artists.  There will be slab rollers, extruders, lots of shelving and plenty of work table space. The space will accommodate 30-40 artists.  They will have access 24/7.

 

 

 

The Flamingo Clay Studio works as a cooperative.  This keeps costs affordable for all of the artists.  Although setting up the studio will be costly, the studio will be self-sustaining within a very short period.  Estimated monthly dues for those willing to work and maintain the studio will be $150 a month.  For snow-birds and those not able to work, the dues will be $250 a month.  Membership gives the artists full access to firings, studio glazes and all processes within the studio.  The only additional costs will be the materials for each artist requires.

 

 

To help pay for the building of the studio, the licenses and permits, Flamingo Clay Studio is asking the first thirty (30) artists to pay three months of their dues in advance.  For this they will receive four months of studio time when the studio opens.  (This may include additional work time when the building is able to be occupied but before the official start of studio usage.)

 

Flamingo Clay Studio expects a long waiting list for the use of this studio space.  The need is great. No other such facility exists in the region.  Being the founding pioneers in such a project will assure those artists their space in the studio.  They will be able to have initial input into studio design and equipment. 

 

 

Flamingo Clay Studio, a non-profit arts organization whose mission is to provide affordable studio and gallery space for three-dimensional artists. The Flamingo Clay Studio will be located at 216 South H StreetClay Glass Metal Stone Gallery is located at 15 South J Street in downtown Lake Worth.     For information or to join the new Clay Studio call Joyce Brown  215.205.9441 or email JCLay6@aol.com  Gallery phone is: 561-588-8344.

An Open Letter to All Clay Artists

The Rickie Report is pleased to share this Open Letter to All Clay Artists.  Palm Beach County is a major gem in the crown of Florida’s crown of culture and arts.  The first building has been acquired to house the basic needs for 30-40 working artists.  Join in this pioneer effort to be part of  the largest community of working artists in the region.  More information is in this article.

 

 

AN OPEN LETTER TO ALL CLAY ARTISTS

 

Flamingo Clay Studio,Inc.

15 South J Street

Lake Worth Fl 33460

 

 

 

Dear Friends:

Several weeks ago many of you received a letter announcing the formation of a full facility cooperative ceramic studio that will be opening in Lake Worth this year.  We just signed the lease on the building and have begun putting together one of the most exciting projects for ceramic artists in the region. Our facility will house most of the studio space, electric kilns, glaze rooms and finishing facilities any clay artist could wish for, and for an affordable monthly price. We will have our first gas kiln outside our building.  We will be housed right next door to the Benzaitan Foundation who will be operating a large metals foundry and glass blowing facility.  We will be building our full kiln complex on their site that will include gas reduction, Raku, salt/soda and wood kilns.

 

 

Flamingo Clay Studio is the non-profit that runs the Clay Glass Metal Stone Gallery in downtown Lake Worth.  Our mission is “To provide affordable studio and gallery space for 3-D artists.”  This studio is the first of many that will become part of a large campus of studio spaces for our artists.

 

 

This first building that we are acquiring will house the basic needs for 30-40 working artists. When you join us at this juncture you will be the pioneers of what we expect to be the largest community of working artists in the region.  Because we initially have room for only 30-40 artists, if you are to be a part of this project, we should know immediately.

 

 

We have started with a $10,000 donation from the Benzaitan Foundation. This allowed us to pay our first month’s rent and security as well as the fees needed to gain the keys to the building.  We will have to raise fees for architectural services that will give us the drawings we need to pull permits to bring us up to code. I am working on grants as well as a list of possible donors who support the arts and want to make this project a reality.

 

 

The monthly dues for membership in this project are $150 a month with a four hour a week work commitment.  For those who are “Snow Birds” and for those who cannot fulfill a work commitment, the dues will be $250 a month.  The work commitments will include studio clean-ups, glaze mixing, kiln firings and all things that make a studio run smoothly.  These co-op work commitments keep our monthly fees low and are what an artist would do anyway to keep a studio going.

 

 

 

We are asking the first 30 of you to pay your first three months in advance.  When the studio is operable you will be given an extra month for free.  (4 months for three months dues.) For those paying $150 a months this will mean a $450 payment.  For those paying $250 a month this will mean a $750 payment. This will allow us to start the work. Make you checks payable to: Flamingo Clay Studio and mail them to 15 South J Street, Lake Worth FL 33460.

 

 

Our initial rent is paid, and we will be given six months free rent (we will be paying the owner’s insurance and building taxes during this period) to get the bathrooms compliant to ADA standards, put in the a/c and set up the studio for those of you who want to come in and work as soon as possible. Once the building is up to code, you will be able to work.  Construction will be done in stages to allow us to raise the money for each phase.

 

 

Up until the time the studio opens, those of you who want to come and build tables and set up work and finishing areas would be welcome to join us.  Remember, we are the pioneers building this wonderful new studio together. This studio that we are opening would allow you the space and the finishing abilities through the kilns and glaze rooms and equipment you might not be able to afford on your own.

 

 

Joanne Berkow, founder of the Benzaitan project, and I would love to meet with all of you who have any questions about what we are all doing and where we are all going.  This complex we are collaborating on is so unique that to be on the ground floor will be exciting as well as historic.

 

 

I cannot close without adding this: The building that we are renting is one that we would like to own.  We are looking for a donor to purchase this building for the non-profit for both a tax credit and for naming rights.  Owning the building would allow us to put all of our resources into making this the finest studio around.  Once we have accomplished that goal, we will grow our studio space into another building and then yet another. If you know of any such person or foundation, please let me know.

 

Please contact me as soon as possible. We will be setting up a large meeting in the near future.  I will be happy to meet with any or all of you privately who have any questions and who want to join this co-op.

 

Sincerely,

Joyce Brown

Linda Manganaro creates art from found objects and along with husband Kelly Dean Manganaro, a creator of massive works in the “Steam Punk” genre and beyond, they make a contemporary statement with long discarded antique pieces and junked refuse.  They are working on a series they say will knock our socks off.  The gallery is currently filled with their large scale works that grace the walls and can be displayed both inside and outside of homes and businesses.  Linda and Kelly have longed worked their magic, rescuing discarded treasures and turning them into much sought after works of art.  They have been busily working towards this show, pulling out all stops to create even more spectacular pieces than those that already grace the Clay Glass Metal Stone Gallery.

MaryEllen Dohrs, the dean of local sculptors, was the first woman interior designer in the automobile industry.  She designed the interior of Hoppalong Cassidy’s car and has a huge following among Packard enthusiasts who hail her as a hero at many of their conventions. From her award winning sports figures to her whimsical animals, frog and snail sculptures, MaryEllen shows virtuosity in every piece she makes.  Look for her bronze frog bouncing on a lily pad leaf, and her many sports figures, all kinetically addressing one another.

 

 

 

To add to the motion in the gallery, Joyce Brown will share her collection of Amish Marble Machines, toys made for Amish children that are all activated by marbles moving through them.  A peddler among the Amish for 25 years, Brown has an extensive collection of Amish toys and artworks.  The Marble Machines seem a fitting contra-addition to the modern renditions of motion inspired art created by the Manganaros and Dohrs.
