Sagger fired pottery by Barbara Powell

 

 

Originally from Western Massachusetts, Barbara’s professional career focused on environmental protections. She is now centered on clay and enjoying the local south Florida art scene. Barbara gets her inspiration from “nature and the ancient forces of water and time on the varied geology.”  About her process she says, “I mostly wheel-throw my pottery and depending on the surface of the clay and firing methods, I can create either brilliant dimensions of color or subtle earthly palettes. I love working between these two extremes.”  She muses that even after working in this medium for many years and developing an in-depth knowledge of the materials, “the final outcome will always remain largely unforeseen – as the fire itself has the final signature”.

 

 

 

Raku Vessel by Barbara Powell

 

 

In addition to working at her home studio, Barbara teaches wheel-throwing classes at the City of Palm Beach Gardens, Hand-Building classes at the Wycliffe Gold Resort in Wellington and workshops at the Lighthouse ArtCenter in Tequesta, FL.

 

 

 

Ceramic Pot by Barbara Powell

 

 

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, most of Barbara’s classes are temporarily on hold. However, she is offering several fun “Fire Friday” events at the Lighthouse ArtCenter. Most of the work is done in an open-air environment, since a kiln is used. For more information about “Fire Friday” and many more fun opportunities, please visit https://www.lighthousearts.org/select-fridays.html.

 

 

Barbara is a previous director for the Wellington Art Society, Wellington, FL and Women in the Visual Arts, Boca Raton, FL.  Currently, she is a member of the Ceramic League of the Palm Beaches, the Lighthouse ArtCenter in Tequesta, and the Partners for Art and Design in Miami, FL.

Laurie Snow Hein

 

 

Laurie Snow Hein has been painting since kindergarten when she first picked up a paintbrush. In her teens, she studied with an accomplished illustrator, Graham Ingels, and an extended a year at Columbus College of Art and Design on scholarship. Although she painted portrait commissions and taught art classes when she married, it was not until she turned 40 with six children that it became necessary to support her family on her artistic talents alone.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Laurie Snow Hein with Best in Show paining 

 

 

 

 

Working 30 years as a professional teacher, licensed artist, illustrator, and exhibitor at the top art festival circuits, Laurie Snow Hein also taught workshops around the country and in Europe. Many awards have accumulated over the years; but it is the joy of teaching, the enthusiasm of her students and clients that is most meaningful. Laurie is an accomplished portrait artist, also well known for Florida landscapes, beaches, oceans, botanicals, and birds. She says, “My passion is driven by the desire to create realistic expressions depicting the divine beauty of God’s creations.” Large paintings, which make the viewer feel they are in the moment, are her forte. Although very realistic, her brushstrokes are bold, rich with colors, transparent glazing, textures, and energetic.

 

 

 

Laurie Snow Hein visiting the National Parks in the US

 

 

 

 

Traveling is a passion for Laurie, while she searches out the heart of locations to paint. In 2019 Laurie traveled across the US on a 90-day trip starting a new collection of artwork representing our National Parks. She has recently participated in a benefit for La Ola Children’s Home in Mexico in which she is giving one of her paintings to the person who gives the largest donation to this tax-deductible charity. Laurie also has an exhibition for the month of January at the New Studio of Visual Arts in Jupiter of a retrospect of her art over the past 20 years including new canvases created during the COVID-19 pandemic.

 

 

 

 

 

Visit her website: www.lauriesnowhein.com or www.Fine ArtAmerica.com, where you can purchase her work directly. Contact Laurie from her website for originals, commissions, or custom made giclee reproductions. Follow her art and videos on Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest.

“Shades of Pink” by Bobbin Salisbury

 

 

 

Bobbin Salisbury’s creativity was encouraged from an early age and continued through high school and college, where she won awards for her artwork.  Later, when family and work obligations came first, Bobbin still insisted on packing her paints so she could capture the ocean and nature scenes around her on vacations.  Those subjects frequently pop up as her subjects.

 

 

 

“The Green Bridge” by Bobbin Salisbury

 

By attending classes and workshops taught by nationally recognized  artists, Bobbin discovered that she still had her artistic talent and she started painting again. Bobbin tells The Rickie Report, “I now paint every day in my home studio in addition to teaching watercolor classes.”  She became involved in local Art Societies and began her new journey, entering exhibits and even setting up a tent to sell her art at local communities events.  

 

 

 

“Anchors Aweigh!” by Bobbin Salisbury

 

 

Those small steps led to bigger ones, as she immersed herself in the Wellington Art Society and found the camaraderie and networking supportive. Bobbin says, ” Many Artists have great talent but are afraid to use it or even show it. This little seed started to grow… and I started teaching – first to friends, and family. Then I was approached by a local art gallery owner to see if I could teach watercolor”.  She said “Yes” and the seed bloomed!

 

 

 

“Finding My Heart” by Bobbin Salisbury

 

 

Bobbin widely exhibits her work and has won numerous distinguished awards, her work is in collections throughout the country. For more information please visit www.bobbinsartwork.com.

 

 “Teaching the arts”, says Bobbin, “gives me great personal and professional satisfaction. I offer an online, virtual Watercolor school, “Recolor Your World” (www.RecolorYourWorld.comwhere I work with beginning, intermediate and advanced classes to aspiring artists”. Presently Bobbin is working on writing and illustrating children’s books with the help and inspiration from her grandchildren.

“School Supplies for the New Generation” Installation Art by Rolando Chang Barrero

 

 

Rolando began his art career with a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the Art Institute of Chicago where he also received many honors and a coveted Ryerson Traveling Fellowship.  He is an experimental media artist, a visionary, a cultural leader and well known for his “Social Justice” art film.  He moved to Miami Beach in 1980, doing odd jobs but eventually working for Ted Lapidus in Bal Harbor, later relocating to Beverly Hills, CA working for Torie Steele on Rodeo Drive. He eventually moved back to Miami Beach, working with lifelong mentors and opening an art studio.  On the move again he went to Chicago working in the Pilsen Art District doing internships at numerous galleries.

 

Thanks to the Ryerson Fellowship, Rolando was able to visit Cuba with fellow Cuban artists in 1990.  His experience there opened his eyes to exploring the rich art and unique cultures of other countries.  When his money ran out he returned to South Beach and set up an art studio once again.  He began curating exhibitions as Interim Galleries Director for Miami-Dade College system.  Soon he was able to travel and continue exploring cultures and art in Europe, Asia and South America.  

 

 

 

 

 

 

Rolando underwent treatment for brain cancer for many dark years until he was finally able to return to work just before he moved to Palm Beach County in 2010.  He has established himself as a cultural art leader, founding the Boynton Beach Arts District, co-founder of Art Synergy, the Florida Arts Association, host and founder of Hola Palm Beach the first bilingual art and culture television show in the area. He is the recipient of the Congressional Letter of Commendation and Proclamation for Cultural Leadership.  He serves as curator of The Box Gallery and Compass having received the Best Gallery of 2018 award from the South Florida Gay News.  In the past he has served as Curator/Director of several galleries and currently curates at the Box Gallery in West Palm Beach.  Rolando was recently named as a MUSE Award recipient from the Cultural Council Of Palm Beach County, a prestigious recognition.
