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.

Pompano Beach Cultural Center Presents Interactive Exhibit, “Super Natural Humanoids”, With Larger-Than-Life Adult Marionettes July 12 To October 4

The Pompano Beach Cultural Center presents “Super Natural Humanoids”, an interactive installation of larger-than-life marionettes, which resemble older adults.  Using levers and pulleys, guests will ‘activate’ these handcrafted works of art, encouraging a dialogue about how society can create better connections with our aging population.  Kudos to artists, Aurora Molina and Julian Pardo!  The public is invited to the Opening Reception on Friday, July 12. The exhibit continues to be available through October 4.  The Rickie Report shares the details and a sneak peek.

Aurora Molina tells The Rickie Report, ““While I was living in Spain, I noticed a cultural contrast in the way older people were treated. In Europe, there was more interaction, appreciation and respect for society’s elders than what is typical in the United States. Here, our aging population and our more vulnerable population seems less included. We created Super Natural Humanoids to open up a dialogue about how we deal with age and how we can work to be more connected and inclusive.”

 

 

 

 

 

Exhibition Encourages Interaction

With Life-Size Older Adult Marionettes

 

 

 

 

 

“Super Natural Humanoids” Installation Art Exhibit by Aurora Molina and Julian Pardo

 

 

 

 

Molina and Pardo especially encourage younger people to play with the marionettes, which range in size from 5 feet to 14 feet tall and take weeks to complete. Through this ‘play time,’ the artists hope that people will realize how fun and cool older people can be, and that all stages of life are connected and should be respected.

 

 

 

“This is a brilliantly thought-provoking exhibition,” said Phyllis Korab, Cultural Affairs Director. “On the surface, playing with the marionettes is entertaining, but on a deeper level the artists are compelling us to reflect upon our own interactions with the aging population in our society. They are challenging us to look within ourselves and be more aware of how we engage with our seniors.”

 

About the artists:

 

Fiber artist Aurora Molina employs embroidery as a drawing instrument, and fabric as a material for building large sculptural installations. She was born in La Havana, Cuba and emigrated to the United States at the age of sixteen. She pursued an education in art and received her Associates of Arts in Visual Arts from Miami Dade College, a Bachelors in Fine Arts specializing in Mixed Media from Florida International University, and Master Degree in Contemporary Art at the Universidad Europea de Madrid. Molina currently resides in Miami, Florida, where she works as a full-time artist. She is a resident of the Bakehouse Art Complex and represented by Bernice Steinbaum Gallery.

 

Julian Pardo is Miami-based Colombian artist graduated from Broward College and earned a Bachelor of Arts degree from Florida International University. His work has been shown in local galleries and museums such as the Young at Art Museum, Little Haiti Cultural Center, and Alma Gallery. Along with exhibiting his works, Pardo has also co-curated a South Florida artist-based group photography exhibition titled “Freshly Squeezed” at the Dina Mitrani Gallery. He has worked under the guidance of many well-known artists like Jim Goldberg from Magnum Photo, Alessandra Sanguinneti, and Bruce Giden.

“Grey Matter” by Susan Clifton

 

 

 

 

“Grey Matter” is intended to inspire and promote better self-talk. Susan Clifton’s favorite department in any bookstore has always been the self-help section. Her continued interest in that subject combined with her interest in women’s issues is a major influence in her current work.  custom fabricHer creative process is truly unique—fabric mosaic on canvas. She starts with the theme and writes a few quotes on the subject. She then has custom fabric made with the quotes printed in shades of grey. Creating the figures takes hours of cutting and pasting pieces of fabric in just the right shade of grey.

 

 

“We are fortunate to have Susan as an artist-in-resident at BaCA,” said Phyllis Korab, Cultural Affairs Director. “Susan’s exhibition will expose visitors to subjects that ring true for all individuals looking to live a more positive life, to think more positively and to discard negative thoughts and attitudes. Her artistic wish is to inspire people to live their best life and to embrace gratitude. We are excited to present this inspiring message.”

 

“Create” by Susan Clifton

 

 

 

 

 

Clifton tells The Rickie Report, “This high-energy series of graphics, colors, and words paint the whole picture of the self we strive to become.  Viewers are inspired by each figure’s thought process that deepens visual experience with a lasting imprint on our psyches.”   Clifton was born to be an artist. She grew up loving painting and dance as a child, and then pursued a career in New York. She found success early in her career as an art director working on such campaigns as “Danskin’s are not just for Dancing,” “When your own initials are enough, Bootee Veneta,” and “What becomes a Legend Most, Blackglama.”

 

 

 

Jane Trahey, who was the first woman to own her own advertising agency, was Clifton’s mentor and the two created great campaigns for Famolare Shoes, Fashion Fair Cosmetics and Adrien Arpel. Susan won awards for “Footloose and Famolare” and was featured in Art Directors Magazine. All this before turning 30!  Other mentors at that time were the great photographers Richard Avedon and Saul Leiter. Working closely with both of them heightened her sense of composition and helped her understand the importance of a unique vision.  During this time Susan studied photography at School of Visual Arts. This further honed her skill of composition.

 

 

Now based in South Florida, she was honored to have her art be chosen out of hundreds of entries to represent the state in a deck of playing cards called “Art in the Hand, the U.S.A Project.” Her fabulous pink flamingo, Zelda, graced the” two of clubs” card and is featured on the box and sold in gift shops and museums across the country.

Raquel’s  extensive travels have influenced her artistry, making it fresh and constantly evolving.  She tells The Rickie Report, “I found sculptures irresistible to the touch and started exploring this medium expressing my creativity and spontaneity in various materials. The sinuous curves and bright colors capture the viewers imagination offering a respite from the daily routine”.  

 

 

 

She goes on to say, “When I work with stone, I feel the inner essence that seeks to be revealed, it is as if ‘voices of the stone’ are guiding my hands.”  Raquel enjoys working in an array of materials such as acrylics, aluminum, ceramics, porcelain and PVC.   Raquel is a member of the Broward Art Guild, Ceramic League of Miami, NAWA, and 2+3 The Artists Organization.

CALLING ALL ARTISTS 

to show your work in our gallery!

 

 

 

We are proud to offer an unprecedented equal opportunity for all artists!

We are unique in the fact that we accept the work of ALL of our member artists, from emerging to professional, to show, sell and compete for awards in our Artist’s Eye Gallery and Boutique in downtown Lake Worth.

 

 

Our gallery is owned and operated by the Lake Worth Art League, the oldest non-profit art organization in Palm Beach County, founded in 1941. The league is comprised of very talented artists from all disciplines. More good news… it is very inexpensive to join and show. First, become a member for just $75. per year. You then have the opportunity to show up to 5 pieces of work in each one of our 8 judged “season” shows. Each show is judged by a qualified judge that is not affiliated with the league. The league offers cash prizes and ribbons for first, second, third, and honorable mention award winners during season.

 

We also have a “Peoples Choice” award where the public is the judge! Low entry fee for shows. Summer exhibitions continue with reduced prices for entry. The league retains 20% of all sales, which along with membership, entry fees and our volunteers, helps keep the gallery open and your work visible to the public. A reception with light refreshment is held for each show. All shows are advertised. Membership offers meetings, discounted classes, social events and the opportunity to sell your work in our Boutique. Please see our website for more information, lwartleague.org.
