The Boca Raton High Shool’s 2013 Spring Exhibition is around the corner.  The Rickie Report is pleased to announce the Artists’ Guild of the Boca Raton Museum of Art’s Partnership with Boca Raton Community High School.  Read this article and stop by to see the work of these Community-Based Artists, High School Students and their Teachers!

 

 

 

Boca Raton High School 2013 Spring Exhibition 

 March 11 through May 3, 2013

The Artists’ Guild of the Boca Raton Museum of Art Partners with Boca Raton Community High School: Local Artists Exhibit along with High School Students and Teachers

 The opening reception and awards ceremony will take place March 14 for artists, students, school staff and families. Exhibited artworks can be viewed through May 3 at Boca Raton Community High School, 1501 NW 15th Court, Boca Raton, every Monday thru Friday after 2:30 PM in the main office.

A portion of artwork sales benefit the Boca Museum of Art.

 

The Artists’ Guild of the Boca Raton Museum of Art continues its nine-year partnership with Boca Raton Community High School to present a juried art exhibit of artworks by Guild members and high school students. For the first time, teachers will also be participating. 

 

This collaborative effort gives high school students the opportunity to work alongside local artists to experience the total exhibition process. “I’ve been making art since 1st grade, and I enjoyed the opportunity to work with professional artists”, said Tatiana de Carvalho, a former student exhibitor. The students enter the exhibition on-line, help with registering their artwork, volunteer to help with hanging and placement of the artwork, and see hands-on how professional artists mount a show. 

 

“We have watched the students grow artistically from mandatory participation as part of their grade within their school curriculum, to eagerly asking to participate and exhibit with the Guild members” said Roni DiSabello past President of the Artists’ Guild. “Working with Boca Raton Community High School and the students has been a wonderful experience for our Guild artists; we are helping to form a future generation of artists.”

“For each exhibition, the educated juror gives a written critique for each student’s artwork.This proves to be a wonderful teaching tool” said Dianna DonFrancisco Artists’ Guild chairperson of the high school show. “They learn and are inspired from viewing other student and professional artists work.”  Originality, craftsmanship, and composition are just some of the qualities looked for in the works selected for this juried show.

The winners of the Fall/Winter Exhibition were:

Artists’ Guild Winners: 1st: Hanne Neiderhausen “Enigmas” Tripych;  2nd:Dianna DonFrancisco “There She Goes Again” Pen & Ink;  3rd  :Sid Walesh “Passage” Ceramic Sculpture; Honorable Mention : Eleanor Huang “The Met” Pastel ;JR: Flo Rhogaar “Delray Beach Cottage” Photography

Paul Dorrell Speaks About Living The Artists’ Life: How YOU Can Do It!

Being a full-time artist demands more than making art. You must be a production manager, stock inventory overseer, publicity agent, public relations representative, social media typist, accountant and also create art.  The Rickie Report agrees that the art world has become more complicated.  We’re happy to say that Paul Dorrell, author of “Living the Artist’s Life” will be speaking at the next meeting of the Boca Art Guild. The Rickie Report had a chance to ask Paul a few questions before this event and shares them in this post. This is a significant opportunity.  BE THERE!

 

 

 

Paul Dorrell tells The Rickie Report, “I try to make my message relevant to artists, and they seem to appreciate the sincerity of it.”  
TRR:  You spoke about the art scene in Kansas City where most galleries stayed open during the recession and how art patronage has crossed specific gallery boundaries.   Why do you think that happened?  How have you moved from a culture of competition to cooperation?  
PD: Well I’m sure about cooperation.  I send clients to other galleries when appropriate, and include other galleries in my massive art projects for office buildings and stadiums.  I think that attitude is shared here to a degree.  Also Kansas Citians have become insanely passionate about supporting regional artists, which I’ve been working to encourage for 22 years.  That attitude has brought us a long way.
TRR:   What plan of action do you suggest for an artist to gain access into the corporate world?  For example, I heard about a company taking out a building permit for $2 million.  I sent an email to an artist who I believe has the capability of growing his market and suggested he call the company, find out who the architect and interior design firm are for this project.    Is there anything else you  would suggest?  
PD: You’ve started him off well, contacting the company and the architect.  Even better if someone can make the contact for him, like a gallery or rep.  Please bear in mind, the “rep” can be his wife, partner, whomever.  It’s just normally best if someone else makes the contact for the artist.  $2 million is a decent budget; that should provide artistic opportunity.
TRR: What can we do to help drive a renaissance of art patronage in Palm Beach County? 
PD:   Involve all the corporations you can, as well as hospitals, families of influence, schools—and teenage artists from area high schools.  This is important for the energy of any such movement.  If people there are unsure of how it’s done, I can assist.  These movements always need some kind of structure.
TRR: Do you have a list of “must haves” for every artist who wants to sell their work? (business cards, website, good jpgs, etc).  
PD:  Indeed I have, and I cover that list at length in each talk—even greater length during my seminars.  Here are the first 6 points out of 21:
·         Is Your Work Ready–meaning, is it now mature?
·         Photography: is it high quality?
·         Resumes, Bios and Artists’ Statements: Have you drafted at least one of these?
·         Your Website: Do you have one up and is it sophisticated?  Do you know how to build one?
·         Social Media Sites: Are you engaged in this, as it has become critical.
·         Establishing Goals/Setting Deadlines:  Is this routine for you?  I explain how it’s done.
·         Business Cards and Postcards: I feel you need both.
And that is just scratching the surface…”

Florida looks glorious through the eyes of area artists, according to Ralph Papa

Florida through the eyes of artists is astoundingly beautiful. More than 75 artists in the Landscapes 2012 exhibition at the Lighthouse ArtCenter Museum have captured the vivid colors and diverse scenery of the paradise that many of them call home. The Rickie Report likes that some of the pieces are three dimensional.  Much of the art in Landscapes 2012 brings you into the scene.  This show runs through January 5th, so bring your out-of-town guests with you and enjoy more of Florida than your own back yard!

 

Landscape 2012 Exhibition

Through January 5, 2013

 

Ralph Papa will be speaking about the art of landscape painting

December 20, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.

 

Lighthouse ArtCenter Museum

Gallery Square North, 373 Tequesta Drive, Tequesta

Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Saturday 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Nearly 200 people attended the opening on November 15, at which awards were presented by the juror Ralph Papa. Mr. Papa is an accomplished artist and a workshop instructor at the Lighthouse ArtCenter School of Art, as well as president of the Boca Raton Museum’s Artist Guild.

 

“There were so many great works in this exhibition,” said Mr. Papa, “It was really difficult to choose the award winners. I only wish there were more awards to give, as so many artists deserved them.”

Katie Deits, executive director of the ArtCenter, also congratulated Barbra Broidy, assistant curator, on the entire look of the exhibition.  “Everyone has commented on the extraordinary quality of the artwork and how terrific the entire show appears,” Ms. Deits said. “The jurying and curation of the show is critical, and the jurying committee and Barbra truly excelled. Displaying 136 works of art, some of which measure more than 10-feet wide, and having a cohesive look is a challenge. We were also pleased that several pieces of art sold on opening night.”

“Landscapes 2012 is a great opportunity for people to enjoy the beauty that Florida offers and, as much of the art is also for sale, perhaps purchase a piece or two to adorn the walls of their home or office.,” Ms. Deits said. “This also helps to support artists who are working in our area”.
