Handmade Notecards by Barbara Cheives

Barbara tells The Rickie Report, “Afrasia is a unique marriage of cultures preserving vintage Japanese Kimono and Obi blended with modern African fabric, trims, beads, and “found” items. Over the years I’ve developed an appreciation for the garments, art and culture of Japan.  I also have a natural affinity for the African culture. By day, as a consultant I work to bridge the gap between cultures.  I continue that work through my art.  As a Fiber Artist, my one of a kind wearable and decorative art represents a harmonious blend of cultures and “Multi-Cultural Recycling.”

Walter O’Neill‘s SOLO Exhibit, “Gardens of Ceramic Delights” at the Bailey Contemporary Art Center (BaCa) in Pompano Beach, FL will include hands-on participation during the Opening Reception on Friday, January 5, 2024.  What an opportunity to add to this master sculptor’s creations!  As the current ceramic artist-in-residence, Walter’s exhibit will be available through January 27, 2024.  The Rickie Report shares the details and some sneak peeks!

 

 

 

 

Bailey Contemporary Arts

 

41 NE 1st Street, Pompano Beach, FL 33060

954-786-7879

 

 

 

 

 

Opening Reception:

 

 

 

Friday, January 5, 2024

 

 

 

6 – 9 pm

 

 

 

At the Opening Reception, visitors are invited to participate in creating Walter’s sculpture.

 

 

 

A few sculptures on exhibit will be unfinished so that visitors can form something in clay and add it to the sculpture.

 

 

 

On exhibit January 5 to January 27, 2024 

 

 

 

Close-up of one of Walter O’Neill’s sculptures

 

 

When Walter O’Neill moved from New York City to South Florida in 2013 to become the Director of the Boca Museum Art School he decided to re-charge his own artistic practice by exploring a different medium. He now is a full-time clay sculptor. (He had been known as a painter with an expertise in fresco painting.)

 

 

 

“Appearance” by Walter O’Neill

 

 

As the current ceramic artist-in-residence at Bailey Contemporary Art, BaCA, in Pompano Beach he will be exhibiting his ceramic sculptures in a Solo exhibition in the West Gallery at Bailey Contemporary Art.  Walter’s abstract sculptures intermingle aspects of landscape and sea-life with forms that seem related to body organs.

 

 

Throughout his career Walter has juggled his studio art practice with day- jobs teaching, and managing alternative and community-based art programs. In this exhibit he is taking the opportunity to integrate his parallel pursuits as artist and educator by offering visitors to participate.

 

 

 

 

 

“Congree” Group of sculptures by Walter O’Neill

 

 

 

 

In 2023, he received an Artist Support Grant from Broward County Cultural Division to mount a two person exhibit of ceramics by O’Neill and Wayne Pelke at The Deerfield Beach Historical Society and Museum. Inspiring others to explore the beauty of ceramics, O’Neil teaches clay sculpture in the adult evening program at Northeast Community Art School in Oakland Park.

Sue Archer tells The Rickie Report, “My goal as an instructor is to present you with information about DESIGN AND COMPOSITION to add to your core of knowledge regardless of your medium. I believe in the power of planning and understanding the basics. The objective here is not to change you, but to take you to another level. Then it is up to you to internalize this knowledge and apply it to the medium, genre, style and subject matter that suits you.

 

 

If you like to paint intuitively, the more you know the better your choices will be during your process. In this workshop you’ll experience how Sue creates and designs her imagery and achieves a “strong” quality of light. You will be introduced to many topics and concepts dealing with design and composition.  Your goal should be to decide how these ideas could apply to your painting, your subject matter, your intent and style. Elements and principles of design need to be understood; They are not rules, only guidelines. You, as the artist, need to learn how to use them successfully in your work! Learning about design takes a lifetime of study.

 

 

Finished paintings are not our objective;

The planning and designing of your paintings are.

    

 

 

DESIGN TOPICS AND CONCEPTS TO BE DISCUSSED:  

     

Planning a painting                                      Merger (linkage, bridge, tie into….)

Importance of values and shapes           Editing

Viewpoint                                                        Cropping

“What do I do with my background”     Intent

 Unity                                                                  Taking and using photos for reference

 

 

 

For advanced painters: to assist me in discussing your work, you should bring the reference material you work from (your own personal photos, digital files and/or sketches) and photos or digital files of some your paintings or works in progress. You will have time to work on your own compositions.

 

 

I want every student to bring lots of your own personal resource material for any subject that interests you and in any form you desire!!!  (This reference material should be things you drew or photos you took yourself). Have your photos  (that you are serious about painting)  printed out at approximately 8×10; this makes it much easier for information gathering.

 

We will be discussing light, so make sure some of your reference has direct light on your subject. The best light is from the side, not frontal lighting. Shut off your flash! This will enable you to have available the imagery and genre you like for solving the daily projects.

 

You will be doing your own drawings and using your own personal reference during class.
