Nancy Tilles

 

 

Local artist Nancy Tilles is known for her oils and portraits, which hang in public and private collections throughout the country. She exhibits her work in nationally recognized art shows across Florida. Nancy recently completed a commissioned portrait of beloved cardiac surgeon, Dr. Malcolm Dorman, which is installed at JFK Medical Center in Atlantis, FL. 

 

 

“Adam and Eve” by Nancy Tilles

 

Along with her portrait work, Nancy has created bodies of work representing flowers, underwater scenes, and tropical art in mural-sized triptychs. Nancy’s newest series is called “Figures in the Ficus”. She says, “I am fascinated with Banyan and Ficus trees…. I usually begin these paintings with a unique tree and weave the figures into its structure.” At first glance, the viewer sees a lovely tree, but after a while, the whimsical human figures within the tree are realized, giving these paintings a truly magical quality.

 

 

 

“Sea Folk” by Nancy Tilles

 

 

 

Nancy is presently teaching painting to adults at Easel Art Supply and at the City of Palm Beach Gardens. She is passionate about sharing her love of painting with her students. Nancy is also an active member of the Wellington Art Society, whose members consist of dedicated professional artists, up and coming artists, art lovers and supporters. Learn more about her work at her website: https://www.nancytilles.com/.

Alan Halpern Brings His Iconic Art To Fashion As He Unveils New Wearable Art Line! What’s Next? Stay Tuned!

Alan Halpern has taken his iconic artworks to a new level!  In addition to having his artwork on your walls, you can WEAR IT!  Teaming up with an exclusive apparel manufacturer in Canada, Alan is now making his images as wearable art pieces at reasonable prices.  The Rickie Report shares the details and some sneak peeks. Now, YOU can be the canvas of an art icon! What’s next?  Stay tuned!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Alan Halpern tells The Rickie Report,” I have taken my paintings to another dimension! I have partnered with an exclusive fashion company in Canada to manufacture and distribute a clothing line from three of my original paintings. To see the current collection ( there is more to come!)

 

When The Rickie Report last spoke with Alan, he had made T-Shirts for himself with a selection of his paintings imprinted on it.  He explains, “People asked me where can they get one! This led me to research other possibilities of wearable art.  I wanted to work with a quality company that offers online presence, a selection of clothing styles, ease of ordering, money collection, inventory control, S&H”.  At this point, Alan hints at future possibilities of handbags, pillow, and other decorative options.

Miles Laventhall, renown artist and teacher says,” The subjects Alan chooses and personal aesthetic are as colorful as he is.  The paintings he creates are visual reminders of life, full of potential and goodwill.  Al, we are blessed and inspired by you, and look forward to many more years of creativity together”.

 

 

 

From Betsy Ross to Blondie or Bruno Mars, Alan digs into the personality and reveals the inner essence of people.  Visual Artist, Ana Tamayo tells us, “Alan Halpern is a painter with a very positive view of life and a caring personality. Alan’s connection with people is reflected in his expressive portraits of celebrities where the composition and use of color flow naturally and seemingly, without any effort on the canvas. His sense of design and his experience as a graphic designer are unquestionable.  His works of art are a cheerful reminder to smile!”

 

 

 

 

 

Visit: www.legaleriste.com/halpsartcom

 

 

Alan Halpern was born in the Bronx, NY and grew up in LIC. He tells The Rickie Report, “My interest in art germinated when I landed a job at Columbia Motion Pictures working in the print/mailroom. There I spent hours visiting the art department making friends and watching the artists create movie posters and 3D displays. I was then accepted by Pratt Institute, a prestigious Art School. Four years later, I received a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree. Upon graduation, my first professional  job was a graphic designer at Dell Publishing designing sales and promotional materials for future books to be published. I went on to establish my own marketing/sales promotional design firm in Manhattan until retiring to Southern Florida”.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Visit: www.legaleriste.com/halpsartcom

 

 

 

Alan’s artworks have been exhibited in a number of juried art shows, including: Boca Raton Museum of Art, Boca Artists Guild Gallery, Living Room Gallery at FAU University, ArtServe Gallery, Fort Lauderdale, FL., Sugar Sands Park & Community Center, Boca Raton Museum Art School, and Polo Club Boca Raton Arts & Craft Show.

Kianga Jianki’s Visual Storytelling Brings Fabric Art To Life. Meet This Vibrant Artist At The Broward Quilt Expo October 23- 24

Kianga Jinaki is a visual storyteller. Her multi-dimensional work reflects her life and African cultural traditions learned through travel and personal study. She creates her own textiles using African cloth by painting, stamping, dying, or sun printing. Over 50% of her work is done by hand.  Kianga will be a vendor at the upcoming Broward Quilt Expo Marketplace on October  23 – 24.  The Rickie Report shares the details and some sneak peeks of Kianga’s creations! Kianga also offers classes and workshops in the area.

 

 

 

 

 

 

601 City Center Way   Pembroke Pines, FL 33025

954.392.9480

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Kianga Jinaki’s multi-dimensional fabric art reflects her life and African cultural traditions she learned through travel and personal study. She tells The Rickie Report, “Textiles come with their own stories. I am adding my own voice. I speak with cloth”.

 

 

 

LIFE   IS   IN   THE   STITCHING

 

Kianga shares, “I enjoy creating my own textiles by painting, stamping, dying or sun printing fabric. More than 50% of  the sewing, embellishing, and appliqué seen in my work is done by hand”.

 

 

 

 

“Because so much of my process is self-taught my work has a ‘folk art’ feel to it. I love adding texture and embellishments to create more dimension. Writing prayers and affirmations on cloth or paper, then binding them with thread or wire to a piece adds an element of spirit. My work draws on the folklore, music, poetry, history, spirituality and essence of African people”.

 

 

A    MOMENT    IN    JAZZ

 

“A Moment in Jazz” by Kianga Jinaki

 

 

 

“Born and raised in Baltimore, MD,  I grew up in the 60’s and 70’s immersed in the cultural and civil rights movement of the time. My  years of  reading the works of Langston Hughes, Zora Neale Hurston, and other cultural icons, gave me an appreciation for my culture and desire to express it through my art”.

 

 

 

Mini Textile portrait by Kianga Jinaki

 

 

“Quilting is a medium with which I continue to grow and explore as I incorporate new methods of storytelling techniques.  I create art quilts, dolls, and mixed media works that tell the story of my heritage as an African-American. My work includes historic and cultural traditions from both America and Africa. Traditional and contemporary African textiles are used in my work. I see my work as contemporary folk art.

 

 

 

Kianga offers a wide variety of quilts, wearable art, and embellishments

 

 

My quilts can address many issues, from violence against Black people in this country, to reminiscing about the 70’s, or represent  Mami Wata an African Goddess, that appears in Dogon cosmology as the mother of creation”.

 

 

“Adowa Returns” by Kianga Jinaki

 

 

“As a child I created collages and my greatest influence was Romare Bearden. When I began to create dolls in the early 90’s I saw them as another form of collage/assemblage. A few years after I began to create dolls I was exposed to the work of quilter Faith Ringgold.  It was her work that enabled me to see quilting as a viable medium to tell the stories of my heart”. 

 

 

Cowry Shells for embellishment 

 

 

“I chose this medium because of my love for African textiles. Years prior to my art career I made my own clothing using Africa textiles. I love the versatility of these textiles, most of them made from cotton, which is easily manipulated, dyed, embellished, sewn, and painted upon. I’m very comfortable telling my stories through cloth”.

 

 

 

Recently, Kianga received The Curators Award for my work in the Exhibition Contemporary Fiber of Florida 2019 at FloridaCraft Art Gallery; Honorable Mention for her art quilt category Juried exhibition at the Broward Quilt Expo 2019 in Ft Lauderdale; An six month exhibition of her work in “Soul Utterings: Creative Works by Kianga Jinaki and John Mascoll”, at Hannibal Square Heritage Center in Winter Park.

Online Exhibition:

November 1st – December 31st

 

We have developed an exciting virtual exhibition to run from November 1 to December 31, 2021. Prizewinners and Jury scores (and fit with the theme) will get the best positions for the full duration of the show. We will be able to feature EVERY entry as we will reserve an additional 25 places for a “rolling exhibition” so every piece will be featured for at least 5-7 days.

All pieces may be offered for sale (or not depending on preference).
This will be a wonderful opportunity to showcase the work of all entrants to the ENDANGERED Fine Art & Photography Contest.
