About Young Artists Sister City Contest:

Each year, the Young Artists and Authors Showcase encourages youth from around the globe to express the mission of Sister Cities International through original artwork and literature. All students must submit their work based on a designated theme that is announced each year. Artwork is sent from member cities to Washington, D.C. where a panel of judges selects the winners based on originality, composition, and theme interpretation.

 

 

 

 

This program is a great opportunity to reach out into the community and engage local English and art teachers, and reach a student audience that may not already be included in sister city programming. After the finalists for art and literature have been announced, they embark on a year-long tour hosted by local sister city programs on a monthly basis. This opportunity is available to any city and can help expand local youth programming.

 

 

 

This year’s theme, “Peace through People,” will commemorate the 60th Anniversary of Sister Cities International by celebrating 60 years of global citizen action and impact while looking ahead toward a better future where the world’s citizens can come together and find common ground, prosperity, and peace.

Night Vision and Fluorescent Techniques

by Serafima Sokolov

Serafima Sokolov has developed a unique painting style which she calls “Night Vision”.  Her paintings reflect modern issues such as war, equal rights and theocracy.  Her newest efforts include a series about the Great Depression.

 

Even though her paintings depict struggle, they are actually lessons in survival, not defeat.  They are about the strength of the human condition. With her parents, Serafima immigrated to the United States just prior to the fall of the former Soviet Union. She has seen a different side to life.

 

Graduating from FAU, Serafima successfully developed a career in art, primarily working in oils and acrylics.  She enjoys doing murals which can be seen locally while her artwork has attracted nationwide attention.

Delray Art League Announces Next Meeting Featuring JoAnn Nava, Numerous Exhibits And Call For New Members

The Delray Art League (DAL) invites you to their next monthly meeting on November 9th. JoAnn Nava will present and demonstrate. For over 30 years, JoAnn used her painting skills in the trades of decorative painting, murals, faux finishing and restorations. The result is visible in the painting she’s been producing in her fine art. Manipulating latex house paint has challenges different from acrylic and oil. It is a visual language all its own. In this demonstration, a painting will be created from a limited color palette. Viewing artists will see the advantages of using this medium by itself or as a substrate for other mediums.  The Rickie Report shares the details about this event and upcoming exhibits.  DAL is a terrific artist networking organization.  Stop by !

"Play" by James Rabidoux

“Play” by James Rabidoux

 

 

James Rabidoux is a prolific abstract artist who began his art career as a graphic designer.  A graduate of the Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale, FL, he was one of the top highest portfolio scorers.  He also attended Xavier University (Cincinnati, OH), studying Communication Arts Radio and Television. James is a trained Illustrator and Fine Artist with an outstanding portfolio of work showcasing successful global proposals.  After a 35 year award wining career in the high-end marketing and advertising world, James has retired to work on his original passion, painting. Using words and communicating are clearly part of James’ DNA!

 

 

 

"Fix" by James Rabidoux

“Fix” by James Rabidoux

 

James has taken these professional skills and brought them to his creative artistry, bringing smiles, humor and philosophical motes to his admirers.  Clearly, his skills of layout design, logo work, photography and TV commercial’s photo montages show in his current work. James works predominantly in the medium of painting, but includes Pen and Ink drawings as the stepping stone towards the larger acrylic and India ink paintings.

 

"Cheese" by James Rabidoux

“Cheese” by James Rabidoux

 

 

James is known for his “word paintings”.  He tells The Rickie Report, ” My WORD paintings start with the word it is named for… I write the word a few or many times on a blank canvas. Then I just start painting. There is no hidden message unless you find one just for you.”

 

 

"Meat" by James Rabidoux

“Meat” by James Rabidoux

 

 

He goes on to say, “Where’s Waldo?” Nope, the words are just a starting point and I’ll never run out of material.  I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!”  James began creating this genre of artwork about 5 years ago, when he was frustrated with a daily life-situation.  To distract himself, he wrote the word down on a piece of paper.  Then he began to paint it.  

 

"Sushi" by James Rabidoux

“Sushi” by James Rabidoux

 

James is now using phrases as well as individual words in his art work.  Enjoyment is the key to understanding James’ body of work!  HE enjoys creating as much as WE enjoy adoring, sharing and owning his artistry!

 

"Fresh" by James Rabidoux

“Fresh” by James Rabidoux

 

James has also illustrated and authored a children’s book, “I Can Exercise My Face”.  It is available exclusively for Kindle on Amazon.com.  If you are looking for a way to bond and interact with your kids, this is for you!  He says, “Parents: if you are sick and tired of re-reading the same old bedtime stories, you need this book! You’ll laugh so hard, your face will hurt!”

 

 

James Rabidoux’s artwork brings smiles or joy, grins of understanding and meaning to a complex world.  He paints every day in his studio in Ocean Ridge, FL.   His work can be found at the following Galleries and Exhibitions:

Mark Allen Brings Us “Proper Mental Attitude”

Mark Allen is a “re-emerging” artist.  In his early years, he sculpted and used “found objects” before the term even existed. Over thirty years ago he created cartoons. When their older son, Jared, succumbed to cancer, life for Mark and his wife, Donna changed.  Mark’s art has been his therapy since then, and until recently, he was keeping it within the family. The Rickie Report is honored to share Mark Allen’s artistry and his story, which is so poignant as we approach Father’s Day.

Mark Allen tells The Rickie Report, “Proper Mental Attitude illustrates ‘nobody gets out of this life untouched’ and despite the depths of grief or despair we might just find the strength to laugh, love and live. ‘We can live until we die or we can die until we die’ …..hence, Proper Mental Attitude.”

“Some People Just Don’t Get It” by Mark Allen

 

 

 

Mark Allen has always been a creative person, using “found objects” before the term was even in popular vocabulary.  Until recently, Mark and Donna Allen’s creative force has been in the food industry. It seems fitting that he sold one of his favorite sculptures, “Lunch Box” to another restaurant. 

"At Least They Aren't Salted" by Mark Allen

“At Least They Aren’t Salted” by Mark Allen

 

 

Borne out of a need to create something positive while his older son succumbed to cancer, Mark’s cynical sense of humor remained raw and honest. It was during life’s most challenging moments that Mark chose to use his talents to find purpose and inspiration as a way to maintain his own sanity and pay homage to an eight year old’s life well lived and loved.

Life itself doesn’t have to be black and white. Vibrant moments can be experienced if you allow yourself to venture into that world.  Perhaps considered primitive or simplistic, Mark’s use of color and lack of depth are both instinctive and purposeful. The message speaks for itself as you are unwittingly, but willingly, invited into the idyllic images.

 

"Chicken Soup" by Mark Allen

“Chicken Soup” by Mark Allen

Having started to cartoon over 30 years ago, Mark shared the passion with his son, Jared.  Before succumbing to cancer, Jared drew  a satiric “Toaster Man” cartoon.  During shiva, the time of mourning immediately following death, Mark was appalled at the comments some people shared, in trying to be “comforting.”  Mark shares this life lesson with us.  “Saying “You must be relieved”, is NOT comforting.  Say nothing.  Reminisce.  Say nothing.  Hug us.”  Mark tells The Rickie Report, “That’s how the cartoons started. In black and white. No color.”

In 1995, Mark began working with Charles Fazzino, Master of 3D Pop Art.  As Fazzino’s techniques influenced Mark, his cartoons began to change. He incorporated more dimension.  Mark and Donna went into the restaurant business to earn a living and left the art world in the shadows.  Actually, Mark left the art in his closet and would steal away minutes of time to work on art pieces, standing in the closet!

Around 2010, Mark returned to using colored pencils and oil pastels and was ready to retire from the restaurant business. Max Beckman fell in love with Mark’s art and helped reconnect Mark with his inner artist.  Between 2011 -2012, increasing color seeped into Mark’s life. When we spoke recently, he shared, “Now I only see in color and composition. It is pretty much the way I see life. Color and composition is what matters.”

In 2013, the Allens moved from Arizona to Palm Beach County, FL.  Mark’s recent work is more defined. He is “putting the world back into order, outlining everything.”  His work is currently at the Arts Arena Gallery in Delray Beach and he is already scheduled for two SOLO Exhibitions: December 6, 2015 through January, 2016 (at the Weisman Center) and 40 pieces at the Spanish River Library in June, 2017.  Art patrons will be able to see the evolution of Mark’s artistry, which continues to evolve.

Mark graduated from the High School of Music and Art (NYC) and Hobart College (Bachelor’s in Fine Arts/Geneva, NY) . He was a member of the Students’ Art League (NY) and is now an exhibiting member of the Delray Art League (FL) and Gold Coast Watercolor Society (FL) .
