National Association of Women Artists (NAWA) Invites You To “Crossing Boundaries” Exhibition

The National Association of Women Artists (NAWA) knows a lot about crossing boundaries.

Early groundbreakers like Mary Cassatt, Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney and later, Louise Nevelson, Alice Neel and Judy Chicago were just some of the notables that wouldn’t accept exclusion from the male-dominated world of art and art makers. As the first regional chapter in the country, the Florida Chapter is joining forces with the National association in an exciting new juried exhibit at the Armory Art Center, Montgomery Hall, 1700 Park Avenue, in West Palm Beach, December 10th through the 29th. A reception will be held on Friday, December 9, from 6-8 pm, and Awards will be given (First Prize $100, Second Prize $75, Third Prize $50 and two Honorable Mentions $25 each).

By showcasing a number of mediums, including painting, ceramics, sculpture, collage and mixed media pieces, the show will be crossing boundaries in its vision and conceptual approach as well. A number of prominent local artists will be exhibiting their works. Among them are Beth Scher, the president of the Florida Chapter, as well as Carol Staub, Grace Fishenfeld, and Janice Cohen, a past president. An added benefit to the public will be an online exhibit available for viewing after the opening reception. Mark your calendars—this promises to be a memorable arts collaboration.

In addition to this excellent exhibition, NAWA’s 6” x 6” Scholarship Fundraiser is being held only at the Opening Reception on December 9th, 6 – 8 PM. Artist members and art students from the Dreyfoos School of the Arts have created artworks on 6” x 6” canvases, which will go on sale for $50 each. The proceeds will benefit three young women from the 2015 Dreyfoos graduating class with college scholarships.

The Florida Chapter of NAWA, established in 1995, was also comprised of exceptional women of vision. Liana Moonie of Palm Beach, a past president of the National organization and Madeline Weiss, the first president of the Florida Chapter set a high standard. Both groups, National and Florida, share the same vision. And those wishing to become part of the Florida Chapter’s continuing work must first be juried into the National organization headquartered in New York City.

One of a Kind Cuff by Irene Jalowayski

 

 

Irene Jalowayski is a Florida native who was raised in Miami, Florida but spent much of her adult life in California. Eleven years ago Irene returned to West Palm Beach.  Working with glass has allowed her to express creativity and love for color, shape and form. Until this year all of Irene’s work had been with fused glass. She  creates sculptures, functional vessels, bowls, vases and Judaica including menorahs and mezuzahs.

More recently, Irene began exploring cast glass.  Casting is more complicated and difficult than working with fused glass. A clay sculpture is made first and then cast in plaster. Once the plaster is dry, the mold is filled with glass and fired to 1450 degrees for 38 hours. Then mold is broken away from the glass sculpture. The resulting piece of solid glass beautiful and substantial. Each piece is always one of kind!

“Under The Sea” Cast Glass by Irene Jalowayski 

Irene chose to work with glass because says she has always loved to look at it and to feel it. Long before she began to work with glass she was collecting it. Her personal glass collection includes pieces by American, Italian and Swedish glass artists. She stated “Creating my own glass pieces has not stopped me from purchasing a beautiful piece of glass if I fall in love with it”.

Irene’s inspiration comes from what is around and from whatever she can imagine. An image in her mind is meticulously designed in glass. Inspiration does not come in only one form. The sight of a lovely flower can be an inspiration.

A wonderful painting can spark an image of something to be made in glass. She also has been inspired by the paintings of Picasso, Miro, Matisse, Mondrian, and Chagall. Her favorite designs are simple, colorful, and pleasing to the eye.

Dichroic Glass and Silver Necklace by Irene Jalowayski

About five years ago she started making beautiful silver and glass jewelry. “The glass colors just naturally go with silver, as they look so beautiful together”.   She also loves making silver and cast glass jewelry with sparkling dichroic glass.
