It takes a mix of artists, philanthropists, volunteers and leaders weaving together that gives the community a more vibrant, rich and colorful texture.

Beyond the nominees, the Arts Council and the mARTies committee also has several awards that are announced and named in advance of the ceremony. The categories were selected by the founding committee of the mARTies to recognize key elements that make an arts community vibrant and sustainable. The named awards represent a legacy of commitment to things such as arts education, corporate leadership and philanthropy. Visit our blog (martinarts.blog) to see past recipients of all the awards – a legacy that has grown to over 140 award recipients!

The mARTies are a signature event of the Arts Council of Martin County honoring outstanding artistic, voluntary and philanthropic achievement in Martin County which inspire a passion for and participation in the arts in our community. The event could not be possible without hours of volunteer time from our dedicated committee members and with the financial support of our sponsors.

“What Lies Beyond” by Robin Wolfenden

“What Lies Beyond” is her entry for the All Florida Juried Art Show- original art print on metal- 16×24

 

 

 

Robin Wolfenden tells The Rickie Report, “After a fulfilling career as a wall covering designer, I’ve continued my artistic pursuits in a variety of mediums. My style is decorative, as I’m inspired by my surroundings and personal journey, creating a look full of light, color and optimism”.

 

Robin graduated from Syracuse University with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree.  She worked in New York in the garment district as a fabric designer before moving to Cleveland, Ohio with her husband to raise their family. Robin continued her career in fabric and wall covering, and by the 1980’s, she was head stylist for the high end wall covering division of Imperial Wallcoverings.

 

 

“Waterlilies” is an oil painting from Dennis Aufiery’s class- he said this was my break thru painting!

 

 

 

Robin began printing her wall coverings at a factory in Milan, Italy to insure the quality effect she desired. She says, “I travelled to Milan often to print my collections and attended design exhibitions throughout Europe. Jannelli & Volpi, an Italian wall covering company, then hired me as their stylist and North American Product Manager. In 2008, my husband and I retired to West Palm Beach, Florida, where I re-established my love for painting. I found the Armory Art Center and started taking art classes again, which I hadn’t done since college. I studied figure drawing and oil painting under Dennis Aufiery. I was introduced to the natural and intriguing qualities of mosaics. I then discovered Nihonga through Hiromi Katayama”.

 

 

 

“The Blossoming of the Gift” by Robin Wolfenden is 48×48 and hangs in the lobby of The Consulate at The Lands of the President- Nihonga

 

 

“Nihonga”, Robin explains, “is a Japanese style of painting which uses brilliant natural pigments that are made from pulverized semi precious stones which I grind by hand and mix with an animal based collagen from Japan. The pigments are applied in varying degrees of intensity and transparency. I began experimenting with them over a colorful textured acrylic base, which allows the colors to play against each other. I’ve begun adding my own pigmented and batik resist washi papers in a collage effect to add even more interest and dimension. I have had the unique opportunity to teach this process at the West Palm Beach Library”.

 

Robin Wolfenden at Continuum 2018

 

 

Robin’s journey continues as she further expand her art techniques by expressing her creativity through play. She relates, “I may dance and sing before painting to bring positive energy and excitement into my art. I have given myself the opportunity to play with color and explore new materials I hadn’t tried before.  My latest works were created as a result of a blindfolded painting experience where I painted freely with tempera paints. I created original prints from my palette, experimenting with viscosity and movement, positive and negative space, and color placement. The prints were enlarged and printed on a glossy metal to enhance their luminosity. These pieces were selected to be a part of the Continuum Art Fair in West Palm Beach in January and won the People’s Choice award”!

 

 

 

 

“Cascade” by Robin Wolfenden is a diptych- Nihonga

 

 

I believe in the beauty and power of personal expression. My artwork has been shown at the Armory Art Center, Rosenbaum Art Gallery in Boca Raton, and Armand Bolling Fine Art in Jupiter. It is included in private collections in Florida, New York, Arizona, Connecticut, and Tennessee. Currently my work can be found throughout the lobby of the Consulate at Lands of the President in West Palm Beach and in Nashville at Art & Invention Gallery and Modern Remains Design Atelier.
