Commemorating Jewell Committee

Invites  You to An

Inaugural Celebration

Friday, August 22, 2014

6:30 – 9:00 pm

South Shores Tavern

502 Lucerne Ave at the corner of “M”  Street            Lake Worth FL   33460

 

On Friday, August 22nd, we will hold the first Celebration of the Lake Worth, Pioneers of Jewell Inaugural Commemoration.  It is the first in a number of activities that will be planned. Musicians, storytellers, artists and more people in the community will become involved. This is to celebrate the first settlers of the Jewell community (1885-1912) and to understand how to continue their vision of what is now Lake Worth.
At the August 22nd event, there will be an unveiling of the first “Jewell” postcard, created by Janet Villasmil.  In addition, the Committee will  reveal a new piece of artwork by Janet, which will be used as part of their fundraising efforts.  Everyone attending the Celebration will receive a FREE postcard.
According to the Lake Worth Historical Museum:
“The area that is now referred to as Lake Worth was settled a few years after Congress passed the Homestead Act of 1862. In 1896 Henry Flagler extended his rail line south from West Palm Beach; making Lake Worth much more accessible for new settlers. Much of present-day Lake Worth was once owned by Samuel and Fannie James, two former slaves. While the James’ where in possession of the property, the future townsite was referred to as Jewel. In 1911 Fannie James sold the core area of her land to Palm Beach Farms Company.”

Janet Villasmil, community based artist, completed the painting shown above.  Fanny James is greeting the Barefoot Mailman. Her husband, Samuel James, is in the background bringing some barrels into the general store/post office.
She tells The Rickie Report, “We would like to invite: Artists, Musicians, Dancers, Storytellers, and anyone else who would like to come to this Celebration.  There will be appetizers for our guests as well. If there are any questions, please contact: Priestess Yogini NuRa-Dina at https://www.facebook.com/PioneersOfJewell
 
As Janet Villasmil says, “Dreams from behind can be dreams for the future.”  This is everyone’s opportunity to share not only their own history of Lake Worth, but any archival materials ( photos, paintings, pamphlets, posters, postcards, diaries, etc) that families might have in attics or closets.    For more information please contact: Janet Villasmil  at  njvillasmil@bellsouth.net

Classes are 8 weeks

"You Take Such Liberties" by Raymond P. Neubert

“You Take Such Liberties” by Raymond P. Neubert

Ray Neubert will be teaching a new course called “Being The Artist You Were Meant To Be”, at The Armory’s new facility in Lake Worth.  This class is meant for artists who are tired of being told what and how to create and keep ending with their art looking like the teacher’s work or other more famous artists. The class begins on September 2nd – October 21st and run for 8 weeks.  
"

“Ray Neubert”

Ray explains, “Each week we will have an assigned task which we will review at the beginning of the next lesson.  This is not a class in how to make great art but to focus on what individual great art is in each of us and how to tap into our life experiences to uncover it.  I will not tell you what your journey is but encourage you to explore the possibilities the journey can be.  Personal experiences from all participants will be explored.  Each week will begin with a discussion, continue with exploration of the topics in our personal experience with our art and end with an assignment to be worked on for the following week.”
by Raymond P. Neubert

by Raymond P. Neubert

“Such subjects as…Honesty…Personal Preferences…’The Outliers’…’Cosmos’…Surviving Critiquing…Successes & Failures…Likes and Dislikes…Problem Solving and Best Time To Work.  New topics will be explored as they arise.  Our first assignment will be to bring sketching materials and at least one large object for group sketching to the first class.  In eight weeks we will each create a personal work of art which we will use to begin to explore and document what we each are meant to be as an honest and unique artist.  We will also compile a list of long term and short term goals” Ray says.

The Tuesday class is from 3:00-5:00pm The eight week class is $200.00.  Contact The Armory Art Center to register at 561-832-1776.

Ray Neubert’s work ” is influenced by my father’s word play, comics of all genres and heroic Propaganda Art.  My NeuArt began in 2009 when I combined drawing, colored ink and word play on lined paper in saturated colors.  I continue with Metamorphosis in acrylics on canvas.”

EcoArt is a hybrid art-science practice that aims to rectify ecological damage. Come hear about and discuss the five EcoArt works in the “What’s All the Buzz About?” exhibition, closing August 11th. The discussion will address how five artists are seeking to change the alarming decline in bee populations world wide with imagination, scientific expertise and humorous activism. Come learn about a beehive backpack shaped like a book and what it is used to do; ceramic sculptures that add shelter to bee-friendly plantings of native Florida trees and plants in parks and back yards; a massive statewide EcoArt project that mobilizes artists, schools, libraries, public institutions and YOU, visitors to the “What’s All the Buzz About?” show, to replenish the presence of 500 key wildflowers, of benefit to wild bees.

The flowers, now endangered, were seen in profusion when Europeans first stepped onto Florida’s land hundreds of years ago. Two transformative projects that are bringing bees and butterflies back to highly urbanized and unlikely sites. And, a wild and colorful performance spectacle “exorcising” the RoboBee, currently in design at Harvard, under contract with the Defense Department.  Great opportunity as well to browse the show’s bee-specific paintings, drawings, collages and jewelry for sale, with 15% going to support Palm Beach County’s BeeKeepers Association.

Brockman, a 25 year-old digital artist, and his partner Bobby Hodson, dreamed of establishing a place that would be a catalyst for the Lake Park art district.  Not a traditional art gallery – though the walls are covered with artworks – their establishment welcomes people to enjoy playing board games, reading, sketching and web-browsing (free Wi-Fi) in addition to sipping coffee and beer, and viewing the art.  If you haven’t already visited this unique coffee house/lounge art gallery, this is the perfect opportunity.

 

 

 

Mark your calendars for August 11th.  Admission is free for members of APBC  and the general public is invited to attend the event for a $5.00 admission fee. Payment will be collected at the door and will be applied towards the membership fee, if one wishes to join at the meeting. Artists are encouraged to bring a work of art for sharing/critique as well as finger food to share with the group (NO ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGES PLEASE).  The Brewhouse Gallery is open daily from 9 a.m. to 11 p.m. and by appointment only on Mondays.  For more information or directions please call 561-469-8930.

During these lectures each speaker will share their passion for the arts and their identity as an artist.  You’ll discover how each began their incredible artistic journey, their background, techniques, mentors, what drives and/or motivates them and where they see their work taking them into the future.  If you have not attended one of our lectures prior to now you are in for a fabulous treat and will, at the same time, learn something new in the process.

Irene Jalowayski  specializes in fused glass and silver jewelery including gorgeous pendants, earrings and bracelets.  New in her line is a series of bib necklaces made from cast glass beads with matching earrings.   Irene casts these beads from ground glass in specially made molds.  The glass is fired at about 1400 degrees.

Irene’s pendants and cabochon earrings are also fused and are made with a lot of dichroic glass.  The dichroic glass gives her pieces a shine and sparkle that is enhanced by the silver findings that  are used to finish them.  Each piece of Irene’s is different and one of a kind.  They make for wonderful gifts or gorgeous additions to any lady’s jewelery wardrobe.
