A.J. Brown tells The Rickie Report, “I paint whatever moves me.  When I spend time to capture and visually record whatever appeals to my emotional senses at specific moments in my life, the intention is to share that experience with the viewer. My portraits are few and personal, usually of different icons, family members and close friends. Some of my landscapes are, in essence, also portraits, revealing protected treasures, unique geographical locations, or ways of living. My still life pieces typically reflect atmospheric and philosophic statements, and my abstracts reflect my freedom to commit to the journey from a blank canvas to what was created.”

 

 

Exploring the exhibition, visitors are taken on a journey through time and space with each painting. The pieces cover a wide range of subject matter and artistic genres, including portrait, still life, landscape and abstract.   “We are so gratified to be able to exhibit the very vivid and fresh art works of A.J. Brown,” said Phyllis Korab, Cultural Affairs Director. “His vibrant work offers glimpses into his own passionate nature and brings Pompano Beach a burst of Caribbean energy and flavor. The fact that he’s also a talented vocalist is icing on the cake!”

 

 

 

A.J. Brown discovered the world of art when he attended Cornwall College in Jamaica. The ensuing four years were most creatively stimulating and rewarding for him as he learned to balance his visual art and musical talents in a symbiotic relationship. Brown attended art classes during the week, and on weekends he performed as a cabaret artist in multiple hotels along Jamaica’s north coast.

 

 

Brown’s artistic talents got a boost when he was accepted to attend the Jamaica School of Art at Cultural Training Complex (now renamed The Edna Manley College for the Visual and Performing Arts. He then moved to Las Vegas and was graduated from UNLV with another degree, a B.A. in Art, and his paintings and drawings were exhibited in a number of galleries and exhibitions in Las Vegas.

 

 

After graduation, Brown returned to Jamaica, and alongside his attention to performance and recording, his commitment to visual arts remained constant. His paintings and drawings were included in several exhibitions there. In 2003, he mounted his first one-man exhibition at The Jamaica Pegasus Hotel in Kingston. Brown is now firmly established as an artist whose works are being exhibited alongside the many of the masters of Jamaican visual art, and his own brand of art exhibition he calls Visuals in Performance or VIP enjoys a robust following. The Jamaica Tourist Board invited him to be a part of the 2006 Houston International Festival, and Brown has also been featured at The Liguanea Festival of Fine Art and Photography (Jamaica) and a participating artist at the annual four day Montego Bay Chamber of Commerce Art Expo.

“Good Luck with the Sun” showcases the photography of internationally renowned artist Krista Steinke as she explores how the natural world impacts our lives in ways both obvious and mysterious. Using pinhole cameras, homemade filters, and other experimental techniques, she draws meaning from her materials and process, often working at the intersection of abstraction and photographic recording.

 

 

Image by Krista Steinke

 

Referencing varied sources such as art and photographic history, scientific areas of study, current events, and personal experience, her work sets out to reflect on the universalities that shape the human condition while also calling attention to critical issues surrounding the environment. 

 

 

Steinke has exhibited and screened her work in museums, galleries, and film festivals across the country, as well as internationally. Her works are represented in public and private collections, including the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, Woodmere Museum in Philadelphia, the Brauer Museum of Art, Atlanta International Airport, Johnson & Johnson Corporation, and Fidelity Investments, among others. She is the recipient of a Pennsylvania Council on the Arts Fellowship, a grant from the Puffin Foundation, an Artist Residency at Light Work, a Promise  Award from the Sustainable Arts Foundation, and most notably, a Fellowship in Photography from the Howard Foundation. She has participated in several photo festivals and conferences either as an exhibitor, speaker, or curator, including The International Digital Media and Arts Association (iDMAA), Denver Month of Photography, Fotofest, The Invision Photo Festival, and Society for Photographic Education.

 

 

Artwork by Catalina Villegas

 

 

“Botanica Animalia” by Catalina Villegas is an exhibition of lively illustrations of the natural world. Featuring buoyant images in black and white, which transition into colorful flora and fauna, her work is a vibrant homage to the living things all around us.

 

 

Villegas was born in Medellin, Colombia and was raised in Miami, Florida. She is an illustrator and surface pattern designer who grew up drawing and painting all of her favorite plants and animals. Her work focuses on exploring the vast diversity of lush flora and fauna found in Colombia and Florida. She has made her life’s purpose to be involved in creative endeavors.

 

 

 Her travels and professional adventures have given her the opportunity to work as a graphic designer for a Colombian menswear line, a freelance photographer in South Florida, and as an illustrator for clients around the world. Her work has been published in various magazines and blogs including WeTransfer.com and UPPERCASE Magazine. She licenses her art to companies that make a range of products including temporary tattoos, seed packets, home decor items, gift wrap and fabric.

 

 

Villegas studied Fine Arts at Florida International University and has completed numerous courses with renowned international art agent Lilla Rogers (Make Art That Sells) and Rachael Taylor (Make it in Design). She has a love for bass guitar, heavy metal, hula-hoops, chai lattes and chihuahuas. She plays the bass in an all-female rock band called Lilith. Catalina currently divides her time between La Ceja, Colombia, and Pompano Beach, Florida.

JUROR:

Bruce Helander is an art critic, arts writer, curator and artist whose specialty is collage and assemblage. He has a master’s degree in painting from the prestigious Rhode Island School of Design, where he later became the Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs of the college. He is a former White House fellow of the National Endowment for the Arts and has won the South Florida Cultural Consortium fellowship for professional achievement in the visual arts. He is one of two 2014 inductees to the Florida Artists Hall of Fame, Florida’s most prestigious arts and culture honor (the other is musician Tom Petty).

City Link magazine called Bruce Helander “Arguably the most recognized and successful collage artist in the country…” and Kenworth Moffett, the former director of the Museum of Art, Fort Lauderdale, said in Gold Coast magazine that “If there was a Pulitzer Prize for collage, Helander would surely win it.”

His work is in over fifty museum collections, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, Brooklyn Museum, Smithsonian, Art Institute of Chicago, Los Angeles County Museum of Art, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Whitney Museum of American Art and Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) in Los Angeles. The artist and his work has been the subject of 100 reviews and articles in numerous publications, including Art in America, ARTnews, and The Washington Post.

Helander is the former Editor-in-Chief of The Art Economist magazine and recently exhibited his work at Georgia Scherman Projects (Toronto), Corzine Fine Art (Los Angeles), Peter Marcelle Gallery (Bridgehampton, New York), Cornell Museum of Art (Delray Beach), and ArtHouse 429 (West Palm Beach). Most currently, his work was shown by Arcature Fine Art at Art Miami and Art Miami New York/Pier 94 and by Tansey Contemporary at Art Wynwood.  Helander is now focusing on a retrospective of his collages and paintings for the Coral Springs Museum of Art, scheduled for 2017, and his collages are included in “Open This End,” a five-year traveling museum show of works from the celebrated Blake Byrne collection in Los Angeles, currently at the Nasher Museum of Art.

The National Association of Women Artists, Florida Chapter exhibits within the Sallie & Berton Korman Gallery at the Center For Creative Education.  “The Influence of Frida Kahlo on Contemporary Art” inspired NAWAFL artists to use the elements of Frida Kahlo’s work to inspire their own, contemporary artworks.  Our Exhibition Inspiration:  “I paint my own reality.  The only thing I know is that I paint because I need to, and I paint whatever passes through my head without any other consideration.” Frida Kahlo

 

 

Frida Kahlo’s artistic depiction of her reality was forged through her pain.   She had been crippled by polio at a very early age which severely stunted her right leg.  Later, while studying Medicine (at 18 years old), she was involved in and survived a horrific accident that resulted in smashing her legs (her right one had to be amputated), as well as breaking her back and receiving multiple internal injuries.  Yet she persevered and found her new direction, in life, through her art.  She lived her life unapologetic.  She never pretended to be something other than who she was.  She embraced her Mexican Heritage, she spoke her mind when it came to politics or matters of the heart.  And she painted through her pain.   It is her warrior spirit that resonates with so many women and artists today.
