Stimulating discussions follow, led by Coordinator, Elle Shorr.  The public is invited to “The Alchemy of Juxtaposed Elements and Metaphysical Confrontation in Sculpture, Installation, Painting and Print” with Randy Burman on Tuesday, October 4th.  The Rickie Report shares the details and some sneak peeks.

RANDY BURMAN

“Internatsyonale Fonschlong Zikherhayt Aperatus”

 

Randy Burman has been creating art all his life and showing it since 1965. He says: “Drawing widely from popular culture, art history, information design, and social and political events, my practice is based on bringing together disparate formal elements to reveal hidden, compelling connections, and seeks to reveal the cultural forces that develop unintentionally in the real and digital worlds of objects, material, and ideas.

 

armoryartsalondept-of-poetry-works

“Dept. of Poetry Works”

 

“The tone of my work – a back and forth between weighty intellectualism and flippancy – is deeply personal. My involvement in the counter-culture movements in the 1960s and 70s led me to question the history of fine art as much as the political and institutional regimes that dominate in the United States, a critique which often gets expressed in the form of humor”.

 

armoryartsalonrandy-b

Randy Burman

 

“These aspects of my own development have also resulted in yet another dichotomy in my practice – the utilization of destruction as a means for creating. Several pieces have involved the poaching of significant works by canonical artists, which are cut up, re-assembled, collaged, and in some cases, completely annihilated”.

 

armoryartsalonholy-mountain

“Holy Mountain”

 

 

 

“Whether I’m meticulously creating or blatantly destroying for the sake of art, the experience of sublimity is the destination, and wit is often the means of arrival.”

 

 

armoryartsalonunited-states-of-oil

“United States of Oil”

 

 

Randy grew up in Baltimore, where he attended the Maryland Institute College of Art until he dropped out in his Junior year. He had his first one-man show soon after, and published a book of drawn poetry entitled” We Knows Who’s Crazy Baby”. He worked as a staff artist for the underground newspaper, “Harry”, as well as creating movie titles for John Waters’ “Pink Flamingos” and “Female Trouble”, before moving to Miami in 1976. There he worked at a silkscreen workshop at Lowe Art Museum, partnered with several graphic design studios, and began his own design firm, IKON Communication + Marketing Design, where he continues as Creative Director today.

 

armoryartsalondescrimination-seating

“Discrimination Seating”

 

In 2005, Randy returned to fine art practice and in 2010 became a member of the Artformz Collective in Wynwood. He has shown his work at Artformz, Armory Art Center, Art Center of South Florida, 1310 Gallery in Fort Lauderdale, The Projects at Fat Village and many other places.  Please visit his website:  www.randyburman.com

 

 

 

ARMORY ART CENTER:

The mission of the Armory Art Center is to inspire the creation and experience of art. The Armory’s vision is to be the leading visual arts education and exhibition center of the Palm Beaches. Housed in an historic Art Deco building, the Armory provides art classes for students of all ages, exhibitions, art salons, lectures, and special events. Held in twelve state-of-the-art studios, nearly 100 courses are offered including ceramics, digital arts, drawing, glass fusing, jewelry, painting, printmaking, fibers, sculpture, and 20 exhibitions are hosted annually in four galleries.

For more information, visit www.armoryart.org or call 561-832-1776 x33.

 

ABOUT ART SALONS:

 

Our discussions cover the gamut of contemporary art themes, including conceptual, cultural, socio/political, environmental, race and gender focused and aesthetic practices, the materials and techniques used to convey these ideas, and where we fit into the world of contemporary conceptual art. Art Salons also offer the opportunity to explore the practical side of being an artist, enhance professional development, share useful resources, and network with other artists.  Elle Schorr, a well known artist / photographer who spends much of her time at museums and art exhibits locally and internationally, has been facilitating the salons, hosted by the Armory Art Center, since 2012.  All are welcome to join in these timely explorations of trends in contemporary art and individual artists’ work.

Studio Space for Classes, Workshops and Working On Your Own

 

Shortly after moving in, Diane and Asia threw a ‘Grand Opening celebration” the highlight was a student art show. The many students that enjoy working in the studio over the last three years brought and displayed their artwork . There was plenty of art (purely for art’s sake) but the functional mosaic art…coasters, trays, lazy susans, house numbers…wow! The variety of mosaic art that has been created in the studio over the last 4 years is amazing!

 

Functional Mosaic Artwork

Diane has enhanced her mosaic self-education at the Union Square Art Cooperative in NYC and at the Institute of Mosaic Art, Berkeley CA. She has attended workshops with Martin Cheek, Mireille Swinnen, Michelle Petno and Jeff Halverson (some of the best known local and international mosaic artists). Diane’s portfolio is as varied as the application of mosaic art can be.  She is experienced in stained glass, smelt and picassiette. Diane has applied her art to garden items, upcycled art (mosaicking found items to give them new life), commissions for clients (address plaques, store signs), and has often explored her mosaic artistic voice.

Also instructing at the studio is Asia Booth, an award winning mosaic artist of tremendous talent. An avid ‘gamer’, Asia specializes in video game themed art, most of her work features extremely tiny pieces (all hand cut). Asia’s passion for drawing and unique mosaic design is reflected in her art. Her gamer pieces were featured in “A Fractured Perspective” a gallery showing by Luna Mosaics of Orlando. Asia teaches “Intro to Mosaic” and is available during studio hours for students. Asia and Diane recently both placed in the highly competitive Annual McMow Art Glass completion.

Mosaic artist Francesca Delorme is the third resident artist instructor. Francesca, an accomplished art instructor from the Burke Mountain Academy in VT, has a strong background in graphic design, jewelry design and creation, plus the whole gambit of glass arts, including all forms of mosaic. Francesca rounds out the studio’s staff specializing in ‘picasiette’, the art of making mosaic from broken dishes, china and other found items. Francesca will be presenting a series of classes in picasiette and mosaic techniques (such as andamento and opus) this Fall and Winter.

In the studio you can buy art, order a custom commission or take classes. The very popular ‘Intro to Mosaic’ day-long workshop provides the basics in mosaic techniques and you go home with your 8”x8’ mosaic wall art. ‘Intro workshop’s are conducted several times a month.  You can also take advantage of the ‘Studio Hours’ where you can work on projects at your own pace. There is a reasonable fee for studio hours (which includes use of the tools and materials in the studio).

VISITING   INSTRUCTORS:

The highlight of the 2017 season will be a 2 day workshop by Martin Cheek, an internationally known mosaic artist. He has been teaching for over 20 years and is the author of several bestselling books. Martin Cheek incorporates his own glass fusions into his mosaic art and will share that process during the 11-12 February workshop at the studio. Details on this workshop can be found on the studio’s Facebook page or by calling Diane.

 

portsalernomosaicmartincheekworkshop12669607_10206931062129712_1606293107671611304_n
Special classes by mosaic artists and artists of other disciplines are being scheduled for 2017. Francesca will be presenting an ‘Opus and Andamento Workshop’. Opus and andamento are time honored techniques used in traditional mosaics. Francesca will review traditional applications and introduce a modern approach, discuss tessellation, patterns, negative/positive space and the student will put this instruction into practice on their own project under Francesca’s guidance. This is an excellent opportunity for advanced beginners or intermediate mosaic artists to delve into some of the more advanced techniques of the art.

 
The studio will be participating in the St. Lucie County Rock and Gem Club Show at the Martin County Fairgrounds on October 22-23. They are particularly excited to be featured as the “Artist in Residence” at the Ground Floor Farm of Stuart, where their art will be featured for the months of December and January. The studio will present a special stepping stone workshop during their residency.

BUILDING AN ABSTRACT SERIES: A NEW APPROACH
with visiting artist, Brenda Zappitell
October 8, 9, 10 & 11, 2016 | 9:30 am – 4:30 pm | Fee: $800

 

oldschoolsquare02_oldschoolsquare_cas_zappitell_abstract-series-workshop_web

 

Free your abstraction in an unconventional space! This four-day acrylic workshop offers a premiere opportunity to create an abstract series using our 1925 Fieldhouse (a vintage gym) as your studio! This amazing, inspiring space is perfect for creating work in as large a format as you want, with hands-on intensive assistance. Participants create their own abstract series by learning how to paint three or more paintings a day. We will use acrylic paint and “loosening up” exercises to liberate intuitive creativity. Discussion of color theory, composition and suggestions for creating your own “painting process” will also be provided. There will be daily meditation and demonstrations in the workshops.

 

 

 

UNLOCKING CREATIVITY: AN INTENSIVE DREAM WORKSHOP FOR ARTISTS
with resident artist, Dr. Neal Wiseman
Third Saturday each month, 10:00 am – 4:00 pm | Fee: $165

 

oldschoolsaquare03_oldschoolsquare_cas_wiseman_dreamworkshop_web

 

 

The objective of this six-hour workshop (for all levels) is to learn to turn stress and stagnation into creative excitement and productivity. Our tools are intensive dream work, awareness training, group encounter and psychodrama. Students rediscover feelings of inspiration, energy, and persistence. They learn to feel better about their work and about themselves; they learn to think better and focus more clearly; and they learn to develop the self-discipline they need to help them meet their professional goals.

This two-day, oil/acrylic workshop (for all levels) will be about capturing the expressive quality that you find in your four-legged furry friend.
