Neil Capozzi tells The Rickie Report, “As you know, the arts are an important part of this community and I strive to be active member in providing a quality experience in art materials, art education and community involvement.  I’m offering another opportunity for artists to showcase their talents this year. The Arts Council is having a milestone anniversary in 2020. We will be celebrating 40 years of supporting the arts in Martin County. We will be kicking off the year long celebration with a gala. The theme of the gala is “Carnevale di mARTin – A Masquerade”. The gala is Saturday, February 1st 2020.  I am asking all artists to participate in this event by painting a Venetian Mask and I will be collecting them and donating them to the Arts Council. Our goal is to sell them to the attendees of the gala. Blank masks are available from Stuart Art Supply for you to explore your creativity”.

 

 

 

 

Our 1st Masks have been completed.

 

 

 

Neil explains, “The mask painting project has been well received and I have over 40 out being painted at the moment. Since I need the masks back by October 1 there is still an opportunity for our “snowbirds” to participate. You just need to send them back by October 1st. The sooner I get them back the sooner we can begin promoting the 2020 Gala.  The masks can represent the style of the artist or the traditional venetian festival. It’s up to you, the artist”. 

 

 

 

 

Stuart Art Supply has several blanks to choose from. Neil will be ordering more as we gather the masks for this event in February 2020

 

 

 

 

Venetian Mask History:  The graceful, rounded half-mask of the Colombina mask express the enchanting femininity the Commedia dell’Arte figure of the same name radiates when she steps across the stage. Colombina means “little dove,” but with their sweeping form, splendid colors, and elaborate ornament, our Colombina masks can help you become a “bird of paradise!”

 

 

 

 

 

Venetian masks have a long history of protecting their wearer’s identity. Made for centuries in Venice, these distinctive masks were made out of papier-mache and wildly decorated with fur, fabrics, gem and feathers. Eventually, Venetian masks emerged as the emblem of Carnevale a pageant and street fair celebrating hedonism. Additionally, the masks served an important social purpose of keeping every citizen on an equal playing field. Masked, a servant could be mistaken for a nobleman—or vice versa. State inquisitors and spies could question citizens without fear of their true identity being discovered and citizens could answer without fear of retribution. The morale of the people was maintained through the use of masks—for with no faces, everyone had voices.

 

 

Mask wearing became forbidden in 1797, so the venetian masks, along with the carnival masks and masquerade ball masks vanished completely. This continued until the early ’80s, when a group of venetian architecture students began to revive this ancient and long tradition. Since then, the carnival of Venice has turned to be again one of the most important and most beautiful in the world.

“Beauty For Ashes” by TD Gillespie

 

 

TD Gillispie is a multidisciplinary artist working in installation, oil painting, and mixed media. The medium selected to make an artwork is one which might make the intended point the strongest. The art is provocative, reflective, and metaphoric, as she is continually exploring our deepest thoughts, feelings and fantasies in new and unexpected ways. Her installations are room-like reflective spaces created using specific found objects that inspire and trigger memory. These objects are determined after much consideration of how to deliver a specific message.

 

“Big Bang” by TD Gillespie

 

 

She states, “With these found objects I re-purpose them to create a space to give new meaning to an old object but keeping the integrity of the original object as a part of the focus. This is a juggling act.” Some recurring themes are toys, home, introspection, and sweet/sinister. The work is centered on reflection of thoughts from the past merged with present circumstances that we all face.

 

 

“The Spirit House” by TD Gillespie

 

TD Gillispie lives and works in West Palm Beach, Florida. Her work has been exhibited in galleries and museums including Dacia Gallery in New York City, Art Palm Beach, 101 Exhibit in Miami, Boca Raton Museum of Art, and Whitespace: The Mordes Collection in West Palm Beach. Gillispie’s paintings have been featured in Studio Visit Magazine. She was born in Columbus, Ohio and attended Marshall University. TD is the Palm Beach County 2016 winner of the South Florida Cultural Consortium.

 

 

“Peepshow” by TD Gillespie

 

 

One of her installations, “Peepshow”, is on view in “Inhabited” at the Projects in FATVillage, Fort Lauderdale through its final Art Walk on Saturday, March 30, and another, which will include “Big Bang” and “Bazooka” along with new work, will be installed in the same location for an exhibition entitled, “Ripped From the Headlines”, opening for preview on Friday, April 26, and Art Walk, Saturday, April 27.

Gallery Managers, Maxine Schreiber and Irma Friedman tell The Rickie Report, “People find sustenance and solace, challenge and mystery in the natural world, and art has been a means by which humans express their awe of, communion with, dependence on, and isolation from nature. Artists in every medium from painting to photography to jewelry were asked to submit work which represented their relationship with or feelings about wildlife, plants, or landscapes”.

 

 

Lupe Lawrence, a landscape painter and art teacher at the Center for Creative Education and the Progressive Afterschool Art Community Education program (PACE) at the Norton Museum as well as a Lake Park resident was the judge for awards. An awards presentation will take place on March 29th at 6:00 PM. Don’t miss this exhibit!

 

“Spring Blossom” by Yi Yuan Hong

 

 

 

 

 

Our Certificate of Solicitation allows us to pursue tax-deductible donations to generate scholarship monies. In December and January, APBC presented “ART by the Inch” in which the gallery sold artworks produced and donated by our members to raise funds for our scholarship program. This is a worthy cause and we are hoping for more donations, which people can provide by going to artistsofpalmbeachcounty.com or clicking on this link https://www.artistsofpalmbeachcounty.com/donations.

What To Enter:

‘Florida: Faces & Places’ is focused on how local, Florida residents spend each day of their lives. A global view of Florida from outside of the state often related to Beaches, Theme Parks, and other sunshine baked tourist destinations. This exhibition is an opportunity to explain what life is truly like for Florida locals, day in and day out through photography.

 

 

This exhibition will pair with a Summer, student documentary project being created with a collaboration between Center for Creative Education’s C4 Media Arts & Technology program and Blue Planet Writers’ Room.  Two local, non-profits with missions dedicated to education.  The students will be able to share their own stories that document their lives and culture in Florida.  Many of these stories will surprise people who have never been to Florida or only connect to Florida from a tourism perspective.
