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

“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”.

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.

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!

Hand made Ship of Shells by Julie Sylvester

 

 

Gallery Owners, Linda Manganero and Betty Wilson tell The Rickie Report, “Living so close to our beautiful Atlantic Ocean has inspired our artists to create their wonderful original art with the theme and colors of the ocean waters and the blazing heat of the hot summer sun. The artists will take you on a visual vacation as you enjoy the many works of their art in our gallery’s 3 wonderful showrooms”.

Photographers EJ Morales and Tammy Seymour capture the secrets of the ocean and its divine mystery. You’ll feel as though you have dived deep into the depths of the cold blue waters and are eye to eye with the wondrous creatures such as century old sea turtles, sharks and fish.

“Whatcha Doin?”, Painting by Tammy Seymour

 

 

Tracy Rosof Petersen adorns her hand built ceramics with clay seashells, seahorses, and starfish that are then glazed in a variety of ocean inspired colors and hues of the sandy beaches. Her imaginary clay mermaids can welcome any fisherman into port. Tracy offers a selection of vases, plates, nightlights, card holders and much more with a tropical inspired theme. They make terrific one of a kind gifts for that memorable occasion.

Nightlight by Tracy Rosof Petersen

 

 

 

Julie Sylvester walks the hot sands of the beach to find unique one of a kind seashells that she turns into sculptures of ships and large vessels, mermaids, lighthouses and coral encrusted beach scenes. Her selection of seashells on beautiful silk twine will adorn your body and make you feel beautiful with a natural sense of wearable art. She turns vintage wooden boxes into works of art for jewelry or purses with ocean-themed images of applied seashells, driftwood, seagrass, and coral. She also creates with the encaustic art technique using applied hot wax or engraving with her wood burning skills to engrave and trim.

Basketry/Ceramic Vessel by Bonnie Bruner

 

 

Bonnie Brunner uses her talents to make unique basketry.  She patiently hand weaves naturally dyed colorful strands of sea grape vines, twigs, and twine which are sometimes combined with hand-built ceramic bases.  Each vessel has a personalized look, as her artistry resembles the waves of the mighty white-tipped ocean crashing against the hot sandy beach. They will make quite a statement sitting in your cottage by the sea.

Fused Glass Fish by Betty Wilson

 

Ocean creatures and the hues of neon colored tropical fish come to life within the alluring fused glass created by artist Betty Wilson. The rays of natural light reflect and bounce off the different species of fish she creates with glass.

 

 

Ebba Tinwin wraps beautiful sea glass with wire to create gorgeous jewelry for that special someone (and yourself). She selects the shards of sea glass that have been tossed to the shores of the ocean through the rough waves. She selects her palette of colors and choice of blues, greens, whites, golds, and turquoise and then polishes each one before wrapped in wires of silver and gold.

 

 

 

 

Dr. Herbert Brosky hand carves tropical birds out of found pieces of wood. His amazing talents of come to life in his realistic carvings. A retired dentist, he uses his intricate dental tools to hand carve the details of his artistic birds. He then delicately paints each one to make them come to life. His flamingo wears a beautiful coat of pink and stands perched on stilt legs, while the sea gull’s underbelly shows as if you are standing on the ocean pier watching them fly away. The sand piper sits on a rock of driftwood aged from the salt of the ocean.

“Endangered” Art & Photography Contest: Calling Jewelers, Fashion Designers, Craft Artists

The 4th annual “ENDANGERED” Art & Photography Contest is now open and accepting entries. We want to encourage Wearable Artists, Jewelers and Craft Artists to take part in the Wearable Art category. This contest offers cash prizes, website and social media publicity and selected entries are awarded places in the ENDANGERED Art & Photography Exhibition in Miami during Art Basel week.  The Rickie Report shares the details and urges everyone to enter what is always a highlight Exhibition!  Please note – species do not have to be formally listed as endangered in order to be eligible for this contest as long as an element of threat exists.

The 4th annual ENDANGERED Art & Photography Contest : Wearable Art, Jewelry and Fine Crafts

 

The deadline for submission is 2nd October 2016.

Why we love Wearable Art:

Wearable Art is the most wonderful way for artists and their clients to express themselves and communicate their passions and views to a broader audience by, almost literally, wearing their hearts on their sleeves. We are trying to encourage widespread awareness of the importance of preserving endangered species and habitats. We encourage artists to celebrate the beauty and value of what we stand to lose or to illustrate the threats faced. Eco-friendly materials are encouraged.

 

 

 

Welcome to all forms of Wearable Art!  In earlier contests, artists have responded to the challenge to interpret ENDANGERED in unique and personal ways:

We do not generally put wearable art such as jewelry on full time display during our ENDANGERED exhibitions. We find it shows better on models and it is easier for us to keep the very portable artworks secure. We have a VIP cocktail reception, to which artists and their friends are invited and at that event we have informal modeling during the evening as well as a more formal fashion show with an MC and DJ.   Dramatic silks show well in formal and informal modeling shows.   Casual and formal clothes including hats are all welcome.   ENDANGERED: Art4Apes is grateful to our styling team: make-up artist Alyson Sichenzia Hearne and hair stylists Scott Hearne and Patricia Hardsaw.

Judging of the ENDANGERED Art & Photography Contest:

Our panel of three jurors will score each entry in terms of creativity, success in reflecting the theme of “ENDANGERED” and technical skill.  We are delighted to announce that Charlene Modena, award-winning artist and Director of the School of Jewelry and Metal Arts, Academy of Art University, San Francisco, has agreed to be one of our jurors. Charlene is an internationally acclaimed jeweler, enamelist and mixed media artist. Her recent series of pieces titled “Endangered” speaks of the losses in the natural world. This Endangered tiara is made from sterling silver, recycled jewelry and found objects.  Charlene volunteered for many years in wildlife rehabilitation at Wildcare in San Rafael CA.
