Purchasing travel insurance is mandatory to protect your investment. Let’s cross our fingers, but unforeseen circumstances do happen, and it’s necessary to be prepared.

Metal Necklace by Maria Tritico

 

 

Maria draws on the life around her as inspiration for her jewelry designs using lines in nature and patterns in architecture and construction materials.  Her pieces are like line drawings, clean and simple so that the viewer’s attention is solely on the design.

As an Art Therapist she has worked in the Cook County Department of Corrections in Chicago, Drug Abuse Foundation of Palm Beach County and Healing Art in West Palm Beach.  Maria allows the client to determine what they need from therapy and tailors how she works to meet their needs, using the art materials as a baseline for conversation.  This helps the client practice creative problem solving skills that parallel skills needed in real life.

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.

This exhibition benefits the Center for Great Apes (CGA), a Florida-based 501(c)(3) registered non-profit sanctuary giving lifetime care to orangutans and chimpanzees who have been rescued or retired from the entertainment industry, from research, or who are no longer wanted as pets. Please click here  to learn more about the Center and the wonderful work they do. Please help us support their amazing work.  

 

 

Meet Harry  

 

 

 

 

Harry, with his beautiful long hair and round cheek-pads, is a fully-flanged adult male orangutan. Harry’s background was in the entertainment business in California for a few years, but most recently he lived in Central Florida before finding a permanent home at CGA. With his sweet and agreeable disposition, Harry is charming his new caregivers and has been particularly interested in watching the noisy chimpanzees nearby. He’s eating very well now and has started to explore the grounds in our aerial trailway chutes.

 

CGA is the ONLY accredited sanctuary for orangutans in the United States. It offers a permanent home to more than 50 orangutans and chimpanzees and receives no government funding.  

 

 

Say “hello” to Marco

 

 

 

Marco is the oldest great ape at the sanctuary and arrived here in November 2005 after living alone for 30 years in a tiny, backyard cage in South Carolina.

He was born in the wilds of Africa. When his mother was shot and killed by poachers, Marco was taken to be sold and shipped to North America. He ended up with a circus family and performed in a small traveling circus in Oklahoma. When the circus trainers bought him, he had rickets (a nutritional deficiency of vitamin D). The rickets possibly affected his development and overall size because Marco is the smallest adult male chimpanzee most people have ever seen.

At 55 years old, Marco weighs only about 80 pounds (a full-grown, adult male weighs 145 to 180 pounds in captivity). People sometimes think he looks like a miniature gorilla because Marco has a very square-shaped hip and rear end stance with a lot of silver hair on his back.

When his circus owners retired, they sold the other chimpanzees in their act, but kept Marco as a pet since he was the youngest and smallest. So, for the next 30 years, he lived alone at their home never seeing another chimpanzee. When he arrived at the Center for Great Apes, he was very nervous around the other chimps, but eventually was successfully introduced to Butch, another wild-caught, older ex-circus chimpanzee. Butch and Marco are now the best of friends and don’t like to be parted from each other.

 

 

Please do something amazing and support the Center for Great Apes. Do come to the free exhibition, we will be offering annual memberships at a discounted price or donate now and know you are making a difference in the lives of over 50 intelligent and emotionally aware residents of the Center.
