The Artists Guild is an auxiliary of the Boca Raton Museum of Art and was established in its current form in 1984 by the Board of Trustees of the Boca Raton Museum of Art. The Guild comprises hundreds of members, many of whom exhibit at the Artists Guild Gallery on Federal Highway in Boca Raton, FL.

 

 

Steve Nash tells The Rickie Report, “We very much encourage your participation in the Artists Guild. Our organization is vibrant and growing because of the interest and excitement of our members. It is not necessary to participate in the Artists Guild Gallery in Boca Raton to be an active member of our Guild. We have many exciting exhibition venues beyond the Artists Guild Gallery in Boca Raton”.

 

 

Become active and get the most out of your experience with The Artists Guild!  There are three levels of participation with the Boca Museum Artists’ Guild: Associate, Signature, and Participating Signature members.  

 

 

 

MISSION STATEMENT:

  • Support the Boca Raton Museum of Art (BRMA).
  • Provide an association of artists in all media to interchange ideas, support and educate members and provide quality venues for the exhibition of their original fine art.
  • Treat members and customers with respect and dignity.
  • To contribute to the cultural climate of South Florida.
  • Grow our organization.

ARTISTS GUILD HISTORY:

 

In 1950, Boca Raton had a population of less than 1000, with the library acting as the cultural center of the community. Community members began an “Open House,” to exhibit their individual arts and crafts accomplishments. In 1951, the Art Guild of Boca Raton was organized and later incorporated on December 12, 1954.  In 1960, five adjacent lots were purchased on West Palmetto Park Road. Construction began in 1962 and, in the fall of that year, 12 years from it’s founding, the Art Guild dedicated its first home.

 

Because of a pressing need for studio space, due to the growth of its classes, a building committee was created in 1968. On March 29, 1969, the Studio Building was dedicated. Since 1969, the growth of the Art Guild has taken many different directions. The Exhibiting Artists Guild, known as the P.A.G. or Professional Artists Guild, was formed.

 

Artists of the “Guild,” held critiques, presented demonstrations by well-known artists and were invited to exhibit their works in several hotels, corporations and clubs. In 1975, the Center changed its name to Boca Raton Center for the Arts, and 10 years later, the Boca Raton Museum of Art. In a relatively short period of time, the enthusiastic support of a group of community artists led to the foundation of the BRMCA!

 

In 1997, the name was changed to Boca Museum Artist Guild. Membership was opened to the community. Guild membership was divided into two categories: Associate and Exhibiting. Guild activities have significantly contributed to positive public relations for the Museum. The Guild has participated in Boca Festival Days for 16 years; exhibited with Northern Trust Bank at their request; and provided artwork for Boca Raton Community Center, City Hall and Patch Reef Park. For two years, the Guild provided the Art Department of Pine Crest School with exhibits for teaching tools and with member lecturers. For the past three years, the Guild has participated in a joint exhibition project with the students of Boca Raton High School. Several Guild members serve as teachers at the Museum’s Art School. Additionally, Guild artists support the Museum’s Annual Auction with donated artwork and volunteers.

 

In 2000, The Artist Guild moved its exhibition center from Royal Palm Plaza to the Shops at Boca Center. Known as the Images Gallery, it offered Signature Members a first class exhibition space in a popular, commercial center. It proved to be a very positive public relations effort for both the Guild and the BRMCA. Professional artists were drawn to the center, as there was no comparable exhibition space for local artists in the tri-county area.

 

Membership in The Artists Guild doubled between 2000 and 2004. We currently have several hundred members, both artists and lovers of the arts. Increasing art sales produced real year-end contributions from The Artists Guild to the Boca Raton Museum of Art.  The Artists Guild moved to Mizner Park in Boca Raton in April 2005. Between April 2005 and September 2008, the Images Gallery was in three different Mizner Park locations. The Guild lost its space in Mizner Park and The Images Gallery closed at the end of September, 2008.  In October 2008, the Guild secured a new location for its gallery, this time on Atlantic Avenue in Delray Beach. This new gallery, now known as The Artists Guild Gallery, reopened in November, 2008, with participation of over 100 Signature Members of The Artists Guild.

 

In September 2017, the Guild moved back to Boca Raton in a new larger space on Federal Hwy. This new gallery, known as The Artists Guild Gallery, is over 3,000 square feet. It reopened in October, 2017, with participation of over 100 Signature Members.

Sandra Encaoua was born in Paris and is a well known and acclaimed artist in France and many other European countries.  She began painting and drawing as a young girl, teaching herself to mix several mediums until she had the prefect effect she wanted.  She graduated from a Parisian school of art.

 

 

Sandra tells The Rickie Report, ” Sometimes I create with watercolors when I want a quick expression of the moment, but I work mainly in oils on large canvases, as I like the transparency and vibration of the oils”.   Her semi-abstract paintings reflect Sandra’s love of nature and raw elements.  Her landscapes and portraits are a mixture of flaming red with sparking white and bright turquoise.  Her paintings infer strength, vitality and gentleness.

 

“Fragile” by Sandra Encaoua

 

 

 

Sandra won the 2013 competition of Young Talent in France, was the featured 2015 “Artist of the Day” on the famous website Saatchi Art and won the 2017 French Award Arts-Sciences-Letters of the French Academy of Arts-Sciences-Letters in Paris.  She has just recently had an exhibition at the famous Kinor Gallery in Paris and will have another in Paris in July 2019. She splits her time between Paris and Miami.   

 

 

 

“Palimpsest” by Sandra Encaoua

 

 

 

Sandra’s works have been exhibited in the US, Italy, Switzerland, Belgium, and France, to high acclaim.  Her subject matter is prolific and she offers classes as well as “paint parties” at her studio.

The Artists of Palm Beach County, Inc. (APBC) in partnership with the Lake Park Library and the Town of Lake Park Summer Camp, presents a Children’s exhibit “Now It Is Summer.” As part of their summer camp experience, on July 9, 2019, a group of 7 to 12 year olds took part in a reading and art activity in the Lake Park Library. Librarian, Ileana Bell led the workshop. First she read to the children who listened attentively to the book “Now It Is Summer” by Eileen Spinelli, and then she instructed them to paint a picture of their summer using canvases and acrylic paints donated by the Artists of Palm Beach County. The kids were inspired to produce some wonderful artwork and they shared stories to describe their paintings with members of the artists group.

 

 

APBC will display their work and stories as well as photographs of their camp experience throughout the month of August in the Art on Park Gallery. Refreshments, including ice cream sundaes, will be served. The gallery is proud to be sponsoring this exhibition.

Bailey Contemporary Arts Presents

 

 

 

A Solo Exhibition

By Marcos Conde,

A Prolific Public Artist Who Creates Inspiration in Communities

 

 

Opening reception:

August 2

6  –  10 pm

During Old Town Untapped Downtown

Exhibit is available through August 2 – September 27, 2019

 

 

Artist, Marcos Conde

 

 

 

 

“Marcos’ art has adorned cityscapes, clothing, car wraps and interiors throughout the United States,” said Phyllis Korab, Cultural Affairs Director. “We saw his amazing talent on display at ArtLit earlier this year, and we are delighted to have his work on display at BaCA.”

 

 

Conde didn’t always plan on being an artist. As a child, he immigrated with his parents to the U.S. and would daydream and doodle in class but never took a formal art class while in school. He grew up surrounded by blue collar workers, trying to make a living in a country where they didn’t even understand the language. Because there were no artists in his family or around him, he never thought he would go on to relentlessly pursue the arts for himself in the future.

 

 

 

 

It was after high school, while Conde was taking some classes at a local college, he decided to take a drawing class just for leisure. This class incited the curiosity to pursue a new direction in life. It was also during this time he visited an art gallery for the first time. He subsequently became obsessed with drawing his ideas on paper.

 

His path towards artistic freedom didn’t come without roadblocks however, and after a year, he dropped out of school, ended up incarcerated then completely broke, between homelessness and sleeping on friends’ couches while battling a drug habit.  Deciding he would rise above this situation, he arrived at a rehab center in South America. Part of the program was to use art as therapy. It was here that he discovered the magic that is painting. Since then, he has turned the negativity of the past into a positive outlook he can share with others. He has been obsessed with developing the skills to visually alter his surroundings for a positive change.

 

Marcos has since created public art for different communities through private businesses, schools, and city commissions. He has worked with the arts organization Art N Soul to teach art to underprivileged children in Broward County and has also done workshops for at-risk youth with the Broward Sheriff’s Office.

 

Conde has created art installations for Broward, Miami, and West Palm Beach art events and businesses. His client commissions include city municipalities, public schools, corporate offices, retail stores, and different sized businesses and homes in the U.S.  Highly influenced by the impact of public art on his own life, he has spent the last few years using his experience and creative ability to design and install artwork that integrates into different public spaces. His initiative was to use his creative ability to realize artwork that is available for different neighborhoods to enjoy.
