“Pastoral Universe” by Shawn Hall

 

Shawn’s artwork is often a reflection of the natural world, reminding the viewer that the Earth is in constant change. Her paintings express a loose, often ironically humorous, abstract representational style. Despite her ventures into different mediums, her paintings inform all of her work. These paintings loop back and revisit the familiar territory of the forms and processes found in nature.

Jewish Museum of Florida

 

 

 

The Jewish Museum’s Core Exhibit “MOSAIC: Jewish Life in Florida,” opened in the fall of 1996, and while it’s continuously updated, the main features of the exhibit include: a Time Line Wall of Jewish history, a film about the history of Jews in Florida and a Research Center that grows daily. According to its website, it is the “only museum dedicated to telling the story of 250 years of Florida Jewish life, history, arts and culture as well as the generic immigration experience of everyone’s family.”

 

 

 

In order to provide a more personalized experience, the tour will be split into two smaller groups. While one group is inside exploring the museum with a docent, the other group will be outside taking a narrated walking tour with a guide. Both groups will then meet for lunch at the museum, then the morning inside group will tour outside and the morning outside group will explore the museum.  The cost for this trip includes lunch, admission to the museum and tours.

Metal Artwork by Mike Chamberlain

 

 

Mike shares with The Rickie Report, “These aluminum panels are part of an ongoing experiment that started about ten years ago at my sign shop, Vital Signs, in Verona, Wisconsin. I use a lot of aluminum on signs I build at the shop. I started scratching and grinding the aluminum to help the aluminum elements on the sign stand out and be more visible. With all of the scrap aluminum I had laying around the shop, I started thinking that I could make some wall art out of the aluminum.

 

HAEHobeSoundmikechamberlain2

Metal Artwork by Mike Chamberlain

 

 

 

By scratching the surface of the aluminum the light reflects off the surface from different angles creating amazing holographic effects of depth and space on a two dimensional object. These pieces are scratched with an array of different tools I use around the shop. The colored pieces are painted with a translucent tint that I mix into an automotive clear coat. These colors can be intermixed to create millions of different colors. Once dried, they are color-sanded and buffed to a high gloss. These pieces need light to bring out their depth and holographic appearance; with that, they begin to change and start to look different if the light is adjusted from bright to dull.  When looking at these pieces from different angles and with different light intensity, their appearance will begin to change right before the viewer’s eyes”.

 

 

 

 

Produced by Howard Alan Events and hosted by the Hobe Sound Chamber of Commerce this popular event will feature 150 local and national artists as well as the finest crafters in the country with a wide array of artistic media. This show will have two separate sections appealing to art enthusiasts and collectors looking to add to their collections as well as festival patrons shopping for affordable crafts and unique gift items. The Fine Arts portion of the event will be located on the North side of the street starting at Bridge Road and Dixie Highway, followed by the crafts section and green market.

Pendant by Monika Fairchild

 

 

Monika Shares, “I am the sole creator of each one of my jewelry designs. The process usually begins by laying out many colorful stones and rare fossils. I move them around until the shapes; colors and textures take on a life of their own, becoming much more as a union than separate elements. The next step is sketching my design idea on paper, adding graceful lines that support the relationship of all pieces. Then each stone gets its own custom bezel made, either out of sterling silver or 14 kt gold bezel wire, which I cut and solder closed and attach onto a flat piece of sterling silver sheet. The thickness of the base varies according to the purpose of the piece of jewelry. For example: earrings are made of lighter gauge, and pendants heavier”.

 

 

HAEHobeSOundmonikafairchild2

Pendant by Monika Fairchild

 

 

 

 

“I cut shapes out of silver and gold using a hand saw and bend or texture them, mostly with small hand tools like pliers and hammers. Once all elements are attached together through the process of soldering, the job of polishing begins. It is a long, labor intensive and unpleasant process, and it is what differentiates quality work. I use a buffing machine, holding the piece in my hands and pressing against the extremely fast spinning cloth wheel, feeding it with polishing compound every few seconds. Even though I wear a face mask and finger guards and have an exhaust fan, I am still covered with black dirt at the end of the polishing process. The last step is to carefully set the stones in place using a bezel pusher and burnisher. My favorite part of jewelry making process is to see how great my creation looks on the person that has fallen in love with it and the joy it brings to them”.

Mosaic by Brenda Flynn

 

 

Brenda explains, “I love to travel, and travel has always been a big inspiration for me personally and professionally. Bohemian in nature, a reincarnated gypsy from days gone by. If I am physically moving – in a car, plane, boat, train – I’m totally happy. I get cabin fever amazingly fast. A day-trip or an art show usually alleviates the feeling of being in one place too long. I am convinced sea water courses through my veins. I pursue my art as a full-time exhibiting artist doing both fine craft and fine art shows, showing both traditional tile and paper mosaics. I also have my work in a few galleries up and down the East Coast”.

 

 

HAEHobeSoundbrendaflynn2

Mosaic by Brenda Flynn 

 

 

“I continue to write as a contributing columnist and features writer at Sunshine Artist magazine, and have had photographs published in Coastal Living and The Sun magazines. I used to freelance as a travel writer and have a couple of book titles under my belt. Always looking for creative opportunities. I love public art, and have done some tile mosaic projects in Ocala and Cedar Key. Feel free to click on over to www.free-range-van.weebly.com to see both the horse I created for Horse Fever in Ocala, 2011, and the van – which is a continuing labor of love”!

Dr. Joan Lipton

 

 

In five fully illustrated lectures, art historian Joan Lipton will explore paintings and sculpture that survey the black experience in America from the days of slavery to freedom after the Civil War and during the era of reconstruction. She will also present highlights of the art of the 20th and 21st centuries to reveal the talent of many male and female artists whose importance and fame are now assured.

 

 

1. Picturing African Americans and Their Life in the19th Century by Black and White Artists: Prior to the Civil War the few known African American artists exemplified an art relatively similar to that of their white contemporaries. Some, however, were willing to confront and describe the social conditions of their people. One even received international acclaim, but he reacted to the pressures of racism by leaving America and relocating in Paris. Among the white painters who presented African Americans in a relatively objective, dignified way were renowned Winslow Homer, Eastman Johnson, William Sidney Mount and Thomas Eakins. However, this was not true of other white artists.

 

 

 

 

2. and 3.The Harlem Renaissance and Prominent African American: Artists
After World War I many African Americans joined the mass migration to the north where the major example of expanded freedom and creativity was the Harlem Renaissance. In that atmosphere many artists came forth to create modern masterpieces.

 

4. Let’s Not Forget African American Women Artists: Women painters and sculptors who persevered “against all odds” did earn their deserved places in museums, galleries and publications beginning in the 19th century.

 

 

5. Contemporary African American and African Artists: A Sampling: Current African American men and women artists are producing notable and varied artistic styles and content as we will see. Before exploring current African art there will be a discussion of the superior art produced in Africa as early as 1500 through the 1900s.

“The idea for a show centered on the natural world came to me a while ago after I discovered Alex Beard’s work. I thought it was amazing that one man could honestly make a difference in the world through use of his artwork,” says curator, Melanie Johanson. “I find it inspiring to think that if everyone used their talents to support a cause, great or small, what a huge difference could be made.” A portion of proceeds from the sale of artwork in the show goes to The Watering Hole Foundation http://www.wateringholefoundation.org), created by Alex Beard in support of conservation efforts. The foundation is dedicated to saving endangered wildlife and preserving the earth’s remaining wilderness.

About the “WILD” Artists:

 

 

CornellArtMuseum_WILD_Ronald-Shaw

Pottery by Ronald Shaw

 

 

Diane Arrieta (aka Birds are nice)

Diane Arrieta works as the art/science outreach coordinator at Jupiter library at Florida Atlantic University. Her latest body of work deals with the relationships humans have with the environment. Often much of her work deals with social issues relating to women and children.

 

 

 

Alex Beard

New Orleans-based Alex Beard is a painter and illustrator, adventurer, best-selling author, world traveler, animal conservationist and now filmmaker. He has emerged as one of his generations most creative, prolific and accomplished artists.

 

 

Ellen Jewett

Ellen was born in Markham Ontario. She took to shaping three dimensional forms naturally at a young age.  In 2007 Ellen completed her post-secondary honors degree in Anthropology and Fine Art at McMaster University.  By the time she presented her thesis, Ellen’s academic and artistic interests in the biological where intrinsically interwoven. Her sculptures are being featured in public and private collections worldwide.

 

 

 

Elizabeth Jordan

From the Artist Statement: “…Beauty is subjective, and perfection in nature is frequently surprising. My work isn’t beautiful in a traditional sense. It has its own unique beauty, which may seem dark, but it isn’t without humor. My connection to nature, the earth, the beauty and grimness of the world are some of the topics of my studio conversations. In nature, there is no sentimentality about life and death; life is temporal and fragile. My work exists in the same place, in that I attempt to create objects that are both vulnerable and powerful. “

 

 

 

 

CornellArtMuseum_WILD_Ernesto-Kunde

Mixed media by Ernesto Kunde

 

Ernesto Kunde

Miami has long been a complex, tangled landscape which continues to intrigue and beguile over four generations of visual artists. For Brazilian-born Ernesto Kunde, transforming the mangroves, wild birds, and crackled Deco architecture into a physically viable format is a simple process. He displays a keen eye for interpreting his tropical surroundings maintaining a colloquial tone: the vital elements of Miami as a natural and urban biosphere are omnipresent for Kunde, appearing on cuts of canvas, found wood and corrugated aluminum. He infuses his work with a Pop Art sensibility, choosing highly saturated, contrasting tones with completely opaque shadow.

 

 

Caitlin McCormack

From the Artist Statement: “The act of stiffening intricately crocheted cotton string with glue produces material that is structurally similar to delicate bone tissue. The string utilized in this process can be viewed as the basic cellular unit of fabrication, and by implementing media and practices inherited from my relatives, both living and deceased, I aim to generate emblems of my diminishing bloodline, embodied by each organism’s skeletal remains. The material out of which my work is composed acts as an alchemical conduit between the garment and the clothesline; it acknowledges the latter as a symbol of the ancestry and familiar bonds which have greatly informed my work…”

 

 

 

Magnus Sebastian

From the Artist Statement: “I use mannequins in most of my work as they tend to be an idealized expression of the human form. I fill them with innards made of the cast off pieces of technology that we take for granted and discard every day. In so doing I try to show that we are becoming soulless as we rampantly ingest technology – we still look human but have taken on a colder, more mechanized persona…”

 

 

 

Ronald Shaw

Ronald Shaw received his BA from UCF. He relocated to South Florida and began working at Rare Earth Gallery. Ron maintains two distinct bodies of work, a functional soda or wood fire line of pottery and a sculptural line combining multiple clay bodies and firing methods coupled with various living and organic elements.

Jonathan Stein

Jonathan is a conceptual artist from the Bronx whose expertise includes sculpture, painting, installation, photography, and video installation.  His work makes social statements all the while sparkling with hand-placed Swarovski Crystals.  His influences include Andy Warhol, Judith Leiber, and John Waters, and he says of himself, “I am a lover of all things campy and kitsch.”

 

 

Chad Steve

From the Artist Statement: “…My ceramic surfaces are intended to look as though they had been well used and then abandoned. Worn, chipped, and saturated with stains the visual aesthetic of my sculptures have a patina of apparent use that serves to unify the overall aesthetic of a moment captured in time, arriving at a feeling of nostalgia. My work celebrates the questioning of objects and the rediscovering of moments in the past. As an artist I am driven by a desire to evoke meaningful and significant memories, wonder, and curiosity within all my viewers.”

 

 

 

Carlton Scott Sturgill

Brooklyn based Scott Sturgill is best known for his painting, paint chip mosaics, and floral sculptures. From the Artist Statement: “Inspired by the bedroom communities of the Midwest, my work examines the conflict between our need to push our individual sexual boundaries and our desire to appear as ambassadors of a white-picket-fence America… My paintings, sculptures and mosaics use the vernacular of the American heartland to scratch the surface of suburban pretense, exploring the compulsion to veil ourselves behind the facade of a commoditized version of the American Dream.”

 

 

 

Carin Wagner

Carin Wagner is an award-winning South Florida artist, born in Norfolk, Virginia. Wagner works predominately in oil on canvas, with a message of environmental protection at its core. She has exhibited throughout the U.S., including shows at the Sherry French Gallery, the Silvia Wald, Po Kim Gallery in New York, the Lawrence Gallery in Scottsdale, Arizona, the Cultural Council of Palm Beach, and the Lighthouse ArtCenter. Museum shows include the Ft. Lauderdale Museum of Art, the Coral Springs Museum of Art, and the Boca Raton Museum of Art.

 

 

 

 

CornellArtMuseum_Karla-Walter_Juxtapose in Black

“Juxtapose in Black” by Karla Walter, Sculpture

Karla Walter

From the Artist Statement: “As an artist, it is important to recognize a message and seize that moment. Crows are messengers, omens for change. Several personal encounters with crows have compelled me to express my personal creativity through this messenger. This body of work explores the similarities between the social interactions among crows and that of humans. To know the crow is to know ourselves…”
