“Purr maid” by Mia Lindberg

Over fifty years ago, Mia’s love of art was nurtured on her family farm in rural PA.  The abundance of red clay, fauna, flora, slate fences of rust and verde, earthen -colored lichen, and moss covered mountain sides created memories for her artist palette.  Although clay had always been one of her interests, her scholastic focus was  with horticulture and applied plant sciences.  It was her search for just the right pottery vessel to nurture one of her projects that lead her to the Ceramics Lab.  She says, “I realized that plants were just a road leading me back to my true passion…and I changed my major to Ceramics”!

 

Mia and students at classes

 

Mia tells The Rickie Report, “Art has the ability to capture the soul of all who dare to enter its doors. I have had the privilege of holding those doors wide open. The rich earthen colors, evocative textures and strong design concepts of vistas past, seduce me, I need only to follow. Freedom is my guide when traditional theologies are questioned and ethereal paths are chosen. Bridging the space between life and impermanence with both vessel and sculpture has been a wonder filled journey. My work represents the beam of light that beckons me to test all the boundaries; ‘Come in’, it whispers, ‘the road is long and the art of creation abounds’….”

 

“Beauty And the Eye of the Beholder” by Mia Lindberg

 

 Lindberg’s artistry has been exhibited Nationally in venues such as the Backus Gallery, Armory Art Center, Zafka Gallery,5th Biennial Invitational Fulcra (CA), Elliott Museum, Design Color Concepts (Ft. Lauderdale), Grandfather Mountain (NC), Stuart Cultural Art Center, Lighthouse ArtCenter and more invitational exhibits throughout the US.  Mia is the Founder of the Ceramics League of Martin County and a longstanding  member of the Cultural Arts Center of Martin County.  She has taught both in and out of local school districts as well as with prison populations.

 

Classes for all ages and all levels of experience are available

 

In 2012, Mia’s work was featured in a publication, “She’s Come Undone”, Lark Books, 500 Raku “Bold Explorations of Dynamic Ceramic Technique”.  Her work has been commissioned internationally and can be found as Art in Public Places in the Bahamas, Virgin Islands, England, Germany, and Italy.  Mia worked for 3 years in apprenticeship with world renown Dorothy Becken. In addition, Mia is  accomplished in metalsmithing, jewelry, fiber, glass and wood.

 

Workshops are available year long from both local and visiting artists.

 

 

 

Classes and studio time are available year round, whether advanced or novice, our motto is “Come Clay With Us”.  In mid-January, 2018 Clay Habit will participate in the Martin County Open Studio Tour in January.

 

In February, 2018, Clay Habit will take part in Empty Bowls. Mia shares, ” Our studio will donate over 150 hand made and glazed bowls, PLUS Silent auction pieces. The public is welcome to take part in the glazing process. Call for more info and glazing dates”!

 

 

A special breast cancer fundraiser in March, 2018 will bring the Gallery’s annual Breast Cancer Benefit, “Plates For Pink” – Mia’s brain child. 100% of all funds will be donated to Friends in Pink. Patrons can buy a handmade plate, $20 and eat till their hearts content on wonderful foods of all varieties.

Fused Fish Glass Art by Carolyn Austin

 

 

Carolyn Austin began designing and creating glass art within the family business in 1986. She has built her reputation in the Palm Beach Community as one of the most unique glass etching artists in the area. Carolyn has lived in the Jupiter/Tequesta area since 1979 and has developed an eye for the tropical Florida scenes from long legged birds to intensely detailed ocean life which in turn creates one of kind glass art.  “I love working with people and using my 20 years experience to create a beautiful customized look in glass whether it be an entrance way or a free standing piece of glass art. All my designs are created by hand, an intricate detailed process to enhance each clients home and personality. Making my glass art a personal favorite for each client is always satisfying I take pride in my work as does my staff and the exclusive following it has created.”

Since taking on this venture, the business has grown in many different directions. The talented staff includes glass etcher and carver Steve Park and artist/painter Julie Silk Beaumont who works with Carolyn to create spectacular designs for our glass art, from traditional to contemporary and anything in between. Glass fusing artist Stacy Dorr offers her unique talent of creating “Hot Glass” to enhance and add new dimension with depth and color to our etched and carved designs. Between these artists Unique Glass Art offers a variety of glass art from your doors and windows to free standing glass art and unique gifts.

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.

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”.

“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.

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.”

” 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.
