Wanee Festival 2014 (Allman Brothers Band), Florida Arts Association and Northwood Village Art Walk Feature Jonathon Ortiz Smykla’s Art

What do the acclaimed Wanee Festival 2014, Allman Brothers Band, Florida Arts Association, Boynton Beach Art District and Northwood Village Art Walk all have in common?  The artwork of Jonathon Ortiz-Smykla!  Otherwise recognized as a gallery owner of OSGS in Northwood,  Jonathon’s own artwork will be featured in three separate venues this month.  The Rickie Report is pleased to share the details here in chronological order.

The Wanee Festival is hosted by the Allman Brothers Band and is celebrating it’s 10th Year! The Wanee festival includes a long list of nationally touring musicians in many genres of music, many who owe credit to the Allman Brothers for paving the way.  The future of Wanee remains cloudy due to the Allman Brothers finally calling it quits after 2014.  This comes after a successful 45 year run filled with some of the greatest rock improvisation the world has every known.  

 

http://rockhall.com/inductees/the-allman-brothers-band/bio/

 

Jonathon tells The Rickie Report, “I’m honored to be a part of this historical time for the Allman Brothers and to be leaving my own personal mark on this event.  It’s also a great honor to have been chosen two years in a row as the designer for the festival t-shirt. It will be sold at the festival in a limited edition fashion”.

“Dinner Hype” by Jonathon Ortiz-Smykla

 

“Urban Scrawl” will represent abstract paintings created through layers of texture, color and spatial relationships.  The newest works on exhibit have been created through assemblage that relate to pop culture, history and the vernacular language of both rural and urban cultures.
Mixed Media on Canvas by Jonathon Ortiz-Smykla

Mixed Media on Canvas by Jonathon Ortiz-Smykla

 

Jonathon explains, “The paintings span 4 years and are mostly abstract with awareness to layers of texture and color.  The $$$ piece was a bit more of a turning point from the abstract work as I began to focus on more pop art and cultural based work, as seen with my 2014 small works collage series.  I hope that the exhibit at ActivistaArtistA Gallery/Studio will be seen as a range of work that has grown with my experimental pursuits.  By experimental I mean that the mixture of mediums I work with does not pinpoint to just one technique or style at this stage of my creativity.  As a relatively new, full-time artist I’m still learning a lot from the art world in general.”

 

"Love, It's What's For Dinner" by Jonathon Ortiz-Smykla

“Love, It’s What’s For Dinner” by Jonathon Ortiz-Smykla

 

 

” My education was not art history based, nor was it through an Art school.  My path led through the School of Architecture, Design and Construction at Auburn University where I gained my Masters in Landscape Architecture, which is where my professional work developed over the past 13 years.  Only as of recent has my true passion for art resurfaced and provided me the excitement to pursue many more artistic endeavors.  It’s a true delight to be awarded opportunities to grow as an artist and to gain exposure for work that I have such passion for”, he goes on to share.

Louise Noakes Offers “Tribute to The Queens”

It all started in 1950’s in Louise Noakes’ family living room where her father and uncle would dress up in their wives’ clothing to entertain the family. Fast forward to 2011, Louise attends a drag brunch at Perrys in D.C. where she discovers inspiration for a new photo-altering series.  She’s been photographing drag queens to capture the colorful experiences close to her childhood memories ever since. Not wanting to leave them as straight forward photographs, she experiments with each image. She describes the process as many hours of reducing the photograph into solid colors, layer-by-layer, and sometimes leaving only a fragment of the original image. The Rickie Report invites you to see her work on Friday March 21st.   “This is not going to be a boring wine and cheese opening at all,” Louise says. The event will feature meeting the queens, a game of matching the queen in and out of drag and lots of the bubbly and chocolate kisses.  Details are here.

 

LOUISE NOAKES

“TRIBUTE TO THE QUEENS”

tribute pc copy 2
Born in Toronto, Canada Louise Noakes started taking photographs at the age of 19. She graduated from The Center for Creative Studies College of Art and Design in Detroit, Michigan with a major in photography and a minor in fiber arts. Working in many facets of photography has made for an interesting career for her. Starting while still in college, she worked in Medical photography in an urban Detroit hospital. In 1982 she moved to Washington DC to work as a photo journalist for States News Service.
"Bird on Head" by Louise Noakes

“Bird on Head” by Louise Noakes

Returning to fine art photography in 2002, she started shooting in digital and soon began experimenting, printing on different substrates and mixed media. She has won many awards for her experimental work and for 8 years her work was exhibited at Multiple Exposures, a photography gallery in the Torpedo Factory, Alexandria, Virginia. In July of last year she left a position as Education Director at an Art Center in Northern Virginia to purchase one of the Artists Lofts in Lake Worth.
"Diva 4" by Louise Noakes

“Diva 4” by Louise Noakes

Louise was always interested in art, and as a child would take the extra paints from her paint-by-numbers sets and paint on cardboard. My dad was
a physicist and worked with some Japanese colleagues, who would bring the latest cameras into the states.  She says, “That’s how I got my first real camera. It turned out to be the best gift I ever received. It was a gift of looking at the world with more inquisitive and passionate insight. It changed my life. I started working in the darkroom immediately. Experimenting with
the image by solarizing, making photo silkscreens and printing on
substrates such as mirrors.”
"A Night In" by Louise Noakes

“A Night In” by Louise Noakes

Louise tells The Rickie Report , “Like a rebirth, after resisting digital photography, I finally bought a digital camera and computer. In the last few years, I have been working in digital photography and mixed media. Again I experiment  in every way I can think of and on every material, taking prints out of  the computer and combining them with traditional mediums and any new products, when they become available. Every subject matter moves me,
whether it be  a landscape, still life or portrait. I make art by documenting
my travels and everyday life. One of my greatest pleasures when sharing
my work, is making someone look a little closer, smile or relate to
something about their life and shares it back with me.”
"Lovely" by Louise Noakes

“Lovely” by Louise Noakes


This project has taken Louise to places such as D.C.’s Town Dance Boutique and Perrys Restaurant, Lips in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, Olivia Jones in Hamburg, Germany, Lucky Cheng’s in NYC, and the divas in Lake Worth. This ongoing series is a tribute to all of the ladies who, time-after-time, give it their all.

 

"Sultry Queen" by Louise Noakes

“Sultry Queen” by Louise Noakes

On Friday March 21 from 8 p.m.-12 a.m., “This is not going to be a boring wine and cheese opening at all,” Louise says. The event will feature meeting the queens, a game of matching the queen in and out of drag and lots of the bubbly and chocolate kisses.

After a successful three year run in Saxapahaw, NC, The SaxArt Gallery is making a triumphant return this November to an exciting new venue and with a new name: The Suzanne Connors Fine Arts Gallery.

 

Suzanne is proud to announce the opening of her new gallery  — a street-level, 3,000-square-foot exhibition space located at 544 Northwood Road, in Historic Northwood Village, West Palm Beach, Florida. The gallery’s relocation to Northwood Village contributes to the life of this burgeoning block, which has emerged as one of the most inviting, eclectic, funky and hip micro neighborhoods in South Florida.

 

 

Situated on the coveted intersection of Northwood Road and US Hwy 1, SuzArt’s new space will anchor the arts district, leading the pack with an expanded inventory and some fresh creative talent; Artists Jane Filer, Susan Filley, John Grant, Ray Gross, Joey Howell, Chris Kling, Ruth Ava Lyons, Sherry McAdams, Joseph Sand and Trudy Thompson will all be showing their work in the new location. Each artist brings a unique aesthetic sensibility to the table that both complements and enhances the gallery’s existing oeuvre.

 

To celebrate this milestone move, the gallery is pleased to present First Look, an inaugural group exhibition featuring works in diverse media by longtime gallery figures as well as new additions to the program. Participants include the following artists:  Elynn Bernstein, Jeanne Bessette, Vivien WuShaun Burns, Judith Ernst, Jonas Gerard,  Armand Gilanyi,  Murry Handler, TW Johnson, Cat Manolis, Nancy Tuttle May, Wendell Myers , Sys Oppenlander, Nancy Raasch, Carol Joy Shannon,  Steven Silverleaf, Karen Weihs and Joanna White.

 

 

The Gallery will be holding an OPEN House during the 1st Northwood Artwalk on Saturday, October 12th from 5:00- 8:00 pm.  While still under construction, Gallery Director and Owner Suzanne Connors will be on hand to meet perspective new local artists and to answer any questions they might have.
