Caren tells The Rickie Report, “I love my work as a graphic designer and fine artist. I am always happy to be in the studio. However, very few of my projects have filled me with as much drive and energy as the “Yoga Series” and “Yoga Icons.” There are so many reasons why this series of work is deeply meaningful to me”.

• ONE: Yoga saved my life. After an injury in 2008 and unsuccessful back surgery, I was in pain and side-lined for two years. Thanks to the great training I received from my first yoga instructor, Anna Lee Sanders, and all the wonderful teachers since, I live a full, active life. This series of paintings shows my gratitude, love, and respect for the practice. I hope that viewers can feel that love, and connect with the spiritual and physical aspects of yoga.

• TWO: I can feel the body positions while I am painting. The breath work, distribution of weight, and muscle exertion are with me as I create the art.

 

 

HACKMAN-shelby-child-pose-TRR

“Shelby, Child Pose” by Caren Hackman

• THREE: Anytime that I have the opportunity to combine media or skills in graphic design and fine art, I am happily energized. Working the images back and forth between the digital world and the paintbrush on canvas world makes for greater artistic expression.

 

HACKMAN-Karen-in-blue-TRR

“Karen in Blue” by Caren Hackman

 

“The yoga artwork takes two forms. One group of pieces on which I am working are acrylic paintings on canvas. The painterly realism of the brushstrokes and lighting show the energy and spirit of the asanas or poses. To further the feeling of freedom, I’ve elected not to “constrain” the pieces in a classic frame. The pieces hang, scroll-style, from a support at the top of each painting”.

 

HACKMAN-shanti-scroll-TRR

“Shanti Scroll” by Caren Hackman

 

“The other suite of artwork combines digital painting and archival printing on canvas with hand embellished accents. I have coined this suite of paintings “Yoga Icons” as homage to Andy Warhol, who had a knack for depicting well-known personalities as “pop icons”. Warhol’s line work and use of bright, flat colors in his silk screened portraits, made an impression on me when I visited an exhibition of his work at the Boca Museum of Art. I created my own stylized color and line work in this yoga series”.

“Many thanks to my first models, Karen Burnett and Shelby Grant of Yoga Palm Beach who are my first yoga pop icons!  I am so happy to have been invited to judge the Artists of Beach County “Still Life” show and to be offered a Solo Exhibition area for my latest figurative and spiritual yoga pieces”.

Hand carved Pens and Corkscrew by Howard Fleischer

 

These male artists create with the determined focus of their vision and the strength of their talented hands. A potter uses a gentle touch to form his clay and molds it into a perfectly formed vase or bowl. The piece is finished after he decides on a glazing color from a vast spectrum of choices and then goes in the kiln to be fired.

 

 

 

 

artisansherbertweintraubs418407303560010496_p19_i1_w640

Original Fine Art by  Herbert Weintraub

 

 

The painter is inspired by his surroundings and dreams that dance in his head in an abstract manner. He then gently or boldly holds his brush and applies the strokes to his choice of canvas, paper or other mediums. The photographer holds the camera with his hands and sees the images through his eyes and then transfers them onto a selected background.  The poet and writer grips the pen as the words flow to the paper, grabbing the reader’s attention and taking them to a distant place as their eyes read his thoughts. The pen was made by the artist’s creative hands.

 

 

 

artisansEJMorales_EJ_1

Photography by EJ Morales

 

The artist who makes one of a kind wearable art such as jewelry or fiber pieces  uses his hands with precision to make his art, sometimes applying jewels and gems. The powerful touch of the artist can turn steel into sculpture with the torch and fire used to sculpt raw beams into works of art. His strong hands work as he welds together heavy pieces that can also transform found objects into functional art, such as mirrors and lamps.

 

 

 

artisansCarlSchneider001

Hand carved bowl by Carl Schneider

 

The woodworker carves works of beauty from the bare pieces of a tree limbs or trunk that was be found in the woods or given to him by friends. His hands touch the sometimes exotic patterns and grains and he foresees the object it will become. His hands grip the tools to make intricate designs. The hands of the wood-turner work combine with the wood on a lathe and the raw wood transforms into an object of beauty. The scars and lines on the artist’s hands reveal the true passion and struggles which allow each of us to enjoy and be thankful for his artistry.

Proudly Exhibits the Creations of these talented artists:

 

 

HOWARD FLEISCHER

 

ArtisanshowardfleischerIMG_0355

Hand carved wood pens, bottle cap removers, cork screws, letter openers

 

Howard Fleischer is passionate about his art which involves working with beautiful pieces of wood. Each piece has one of a kind grains that are visible on its surfaces. He enjoys making one of a kind exotic crafting pens, letter openers, wine stoppers and corkscrews. Each one is original and handmade. These functional pieces are sure to make great gifts to that special someone or yourself!

 

 

CARL SCHNEIDER

 

artisanscarlschneiderPeacock

 

“Peacock” Wood turned Vessel by Carl Schneider

 

Teacher of wood turning and award winning artist, Carl Schneider began woodturning in 1997. Carl is gratified by creating many types of pieces, enhancing the natural character of wood and experimenting with texturing, carving and coloring. He loves collaborating with Mother Nature to create useful and beautiful objects from wood. As someone said these objects combine the “art of nature and the nature of the artist”. Carl shares, “After trees are cut down for various reasons I extend their lives by creating useful and beautiful objects that people will enjoy forever”.

 

ROBERT HUNTER

 

artisansroberthunter2011-11-19_16-39-05_HDR

Exotic Hand made Wood cutting boards by Robert Hunter

 

 

 

As a young boy, Robert started woodworking. It was under  his father’s guidance this that he learned the disciplines of this fine craft… Not to rush the work and work with the wood. Let the wood tell you what you have to do,” Robert of  Blu Paw Woodworking, tells us.  “I still use the lessons I learned long ago and today rely heavily on grains and colors in my work. Whether it be a cutting board or a coffee table, these grains and colors are my focus. I am fascinated with what causes the different patterns to occur in the woods; from wind or rain; too much or too little sun or tiny insects that boar the holes that cause the streaks in Ambrosia Maple. With the exotic woods I work with, each piece is always one of a kind. I will always be surprised by what I find under the bark of a tree and how it will lend itself to the beauty of that creation”.

 

 

HERBERT WEINTRAUB

 

artisansherbertweintraub18407303560010496_p23_i1_w453

 

Rural winter scene by Herbert Weintraub

 

 

 

Herbert Weintraub has built a reputation for being one of the top-rated artists in his field. His work represents New York City as it was in the middle part of the 20th century, as well as rural landscapes and seascapes of some of our country’s most beautiful surroundings. Through his use of oil and acrylics, Herbert prides himself in creating collectible original paintings. Each work draws from a rich history of his personal experiences and tours throughout the United States. Herbert Weintraub studied at the School of Visual Arts in New York City. He holds numerous art awards. His work adorns the walls of many large well known corporate office buildings throughout the nation. His work is collected by many which include sports journalists, Hollywood actors and actresses, rock stars and politicians, among others.

 

EJ  MORALES

 

artisans??EJMorales.com_20130613__MG_0835_1920

Undersea Memorabilia, Photography by EJ Morales

 

To EJ Morales, the camera is a unique window to the world he sees; a filter, if you will…. Its magic enables him to share his vision with others. Often literal, his photography carries an abstract flavor seeking to convey emotional meaning. EJ has  been taking photographs from a very early age. His work has evolved and ranges from merely documenting the literal to more sublime pursuits. He covers subjects from wildlife both above and below the water as well as land/cityscapes, all the while endeavoring to imprint the images with his own unique artistic flavor.

 

 

ROBERT BEN KLINE

 

 

artisansrobertbenkline20160515_134435

Exotic Dog Sculpture by Robert ben Kline

 

Robert has worked in clay for nearly 20 years. His work is comical, humorous, and perhaps a tad absurd. An exotic dancing dog in a “gentleman’s club” for dogs, no less! A Harley-Davidson unicycle! A giant apple with an equally giant worm, having a rather human face! He mixes a variety of techniques, from wheel thrown to hand building to sculpture. He is forever exploring new subject matter, so that his first pieces in a subject may be straight forward… and as it evolves, his artistic voice comes through. Something will look off kilter; that strange pose… The person is part of a bicycle…Something is different… Something seems slightly odd… After all, this is art, not a mere replication of life!

 

 

 

When you visit the 3 showrooms within our gallery you will be amazed at the selection of exquisite art handcrafted by 40 local artists.

Visit Artisans On The Ave for Opening Night, enjoy an evening of fun and meet the artists!!!

Call For Entries: “The ARTNADO Village – The Best Of All Worlds” On February 11 & 12, 2017

Artistic Synergy Inc. will be offering an expanded and more robust version of ARTNADO at the Expo Center of the South Florida Fairgrounds.  “The ARTNADO Village – The Best of All Worlds” will take place on February 11 & 12, 2017.  Locally known as “season”, when 40% of the wealth of America is in residence and a large population of Canadian “snowbirds” are in their winter retreats, ARTNADO will be offering a total of $2,500.00 in prize money.  The Rickie Report shares the details about the expanded show’s different venues, including indoor and outdoor spaces.    

 

 

 

 

Artnado201756fc4e5041082

 

Artnado201756fd9833a1400

 

One of the innovative concepts of ARTNADO this year will be the “Private Gallery”, which will allow artists, who have not been able to reach out to patrons at art fairs, the opportunity to do so. (These are private sales and as such will not be eligible for the prize money). In keeping with Artistic Synergy’s philosophy of helping artists, any artist who submits work to the Private Gallery and then subsequently sells that work prior to the show (which, of course, is the goal) will be allowed to submit an alternate piece for judging without any additional entry fee.

 

Artnado2017Image00023
All applications and fees will be handled through ZAPP, a national interface between artists and promoters, which is free for artists to join. Each artist submitting an entry for the Private Gallery will also be required to email Artistic Synergy an artist statement as well as a description of each piece. This will be required, so that their Docents may represent you as best as they may. 

 

 

Additionally the ARTNADO Village will be comprised of the following:

The Venues

50,000 square feet indoors and 10,000 outdoors

The Private Gallery –

A small curated enclosed Gallery showcasing 8 to 12 works of art by artists who cannot or do not do art shows.

The Grand Salon –

The massive indoor space reserved for Fine Art.

Avenue of the Arts –

The outdoor portico leading to the concourse buildings. Ideal for large sculptures, outdoor designs, kinetic pieces and living art.

The Concourse Buildings –

This is where the journey through the diversity of American arts begins. Within these walls, completely separate from the Fine Arts building and offered for the first time, patrons may explore the intricacies of: the Human Form, the Art of the Tattoo (the most unforgiving canvas), Fantasy Art, Exotic Art, Pinups, Dark Art, and whatever else the American mind is currently creating.


In addition to the traditional 10 x10 space they offer 10×20 and a 20×20 gallery space in the Grand Salon only

– air conditioning

-24 hour security

-prior day load-in

– gated secured vender parking

– maintained indoor restrooms

– better illumination of your art (no tents or tent tops, just pro panels or, however, else you want to set up your “gallery”

-available electricity for you to illuminate your work properly

If you have any questions

Please call Jack Busa at 561-557-8741

From Jack Busa, Chief Creative Executive

 



“We will list the categories that most fairs use but are not limiting the number. This process sometimes allows for very good artists to not be accepted because a category is full and other media, with possibly less interesting work, is still being promoted. Given that ARTNADO is inside and electricity is available, there is the opportunity for under showcased art in digital or kinetics to be shown. Given the genesis of the fair by artists and patrons, the key consideration will be the work and the creative process. There is a difference between artists who are creative, those who are artistic and those who are both. While we need to have and will have balance, we will also must try not to “lock out” deserving artists such as yourself”.

 

 

“We do not require white tents for a homogeneous look, after all, you are not all the same. There are not just parallel rows of artists. The show is laid out in a grid with small conclaves of artists surround by walkways. This optimizes corners and end-caps, and allows patrons to have a gestalt of your work”.

 

 

“You can no longer be just an artist, you need to be an artist/curator and entrepreneur. Your assigned space is yours to design as you want to represent you and your work. The most successful artists understand that for less than the price of a one time quarter page ad in a local newspaper they can create a 3D ad of their work. They have incorporated the tools necessary to develop a client base and future commission work. They have taken advantage of art/entrepreneurship courses and are marketing themselves. This show, unlike almost any other, created for individual artists, is designed for you to do that.”

A Word To Artists, Arts Organizations And Show Promoters From The Rickie Report

Every article The Rickie Report publishes is packed with information.  Sometimes, we announce an art event that holds interest for art patrons and artists, a Call For Art to a juried show or exhibit, or an overview of an artist’s work and classes being offered in the community.  On Friday, May 20th we published an article about the Fort Lauderdale Design and Remodeling Show.  In today’s “tutorial”, we take a closer look at how artists, arts organizations and show promoters can use this article to find new opportunities.

What We learned from:

 

 

Jen Walls

In her submission application, artist Jen Walls (who recently moved to Broward from Charlotte, NC) stated: “As a new resident of Broward County, I am thrilled to find a vibrant, active art community filled with a wide variety of venues and events. The arts here are a fantastic example of what other parts of the country could accomplish with the type of widespread support you see here in South Florida.”

Jen is a newcomer to the area and went right into the fray!  We like her moxie!  Jen is the type of person we want to associate with…she sees opportunities in new situations! Her whimsical art strikes a chord!

· “Delirium” by Miami artists, Aida Tejada, Josepo and Sandra Garcia-Pardo shows the consequences of obsessive experimentations on their art when looking for accurate definitions of their emotions and dreams, as well as the role of art and its commitment to society. Tejada teaches experimental photography at her studio; Josepo incorporates reclaimed materials, from his work in the construction business, and gives them new life.  Sandra Garcia-Pardo is the 2011 recipient of the Miami-Dade Community and Tourist Development Council Grants Program.

 

 

Invite Aida to teach a workshop!

 

Ask Josepo if he offers tours of his studio…

· “The Nature of Women” explores the world outside cities and towns: the kingdoms of animals and plants, the sunsets, mountains and vistas that inspire us as viewed, specifically through the eyes of women. Through Phoenix Marks’ photography and Jen Walls mixed-media work, they challenge the viewer to question: “What does our view of the wild say about our own human nature?” Marks serves as President of the National League of American Pen Women (Fort Lauderdale Branch) and Vice President of the Broward Art Guild; Walls has taught art in North Carolina and will participate this summer in the Artist in Residence program at the Olive Stack Gallery in Ireland.

· “Nature” is an exhibit displaying two artists’ love and perspective on the world we live. Brett Aiton having extensive training with animals, shows his love and respect for the creatures that keep humanity alive in his colorful oil paintings. Cynthia Bebak Inklebarger is an experienced mixed-media artist that paints nature from an abstract lens. Her style ranges from finite detail to colorful representations of the environment. Both of their devotion to the outside is evident in their differing illustrations. Aiton’s admiration of wildlife began in his native Indiana and studies in Veterinary Medicine. He has also written a series of teenage fiction books. Inklebarger has taught art and served as a docent and researcher for a non-profit art institution in Miami.

 

Does your organization want to engage teens?  Animal lovers?

Brett is a great prospect!

Will he offer a workshop?  Call….

 

 

 

How can Cynthia’s abstract perspective draw in new learners?  The exploration of Mars is a hot topic!  What can she add to your classes?

· “Spectrums of Color” by Tatiana Cast, Terry Arroyo Mulrooney and Carlos Gonzalez, showcases the vision of three artists regarding colors, shapes and light.

Cast is an art consultant and curator; Mulrooney is involved with the non-profit organization M.U.J.E.R. Florida and has provided families with paintings that replicate portrait photos that she took of children of families seeking support services from M.U.J.E.R.; Many of Gonzalez’ paintings are inspired by South Florida’s vibrant, musical influences.

 

 

Oh, the places Tatiana, Terry and Carlos will take you as you explore color, shape and light!

Make an appointment with Tatiana – she is an art consultant and curator!  How can you work together?  Email first, then follow-up…

Terry would love to share her experiences with M.U.J.E.R. – and perhaps MOVE you beyond your inspiration to DOING what you have dreamed of!

Carlos captures the musical mood with his paintings.  Invite him to a jazz brunch and ask him to demo!  If you are a non-profit, ask if hell donate a % of sales to your group!
