The 20-poster set features beautifully detailed satellite images of the planet—from the swirling arms of a massive hurricane and the grid-like pattern of Kansas farmland to the triangular shadows cast by the Great Pyramids and the sinuous channels entering the Arctic Ocean. “Earth from Space” illustrates how satellite imagery is gathered and used to expand mankind’s understanding of life on Earth. It also explores the remote-sensing technology used to gather the images and describes the individual satellites whose images are on display.

 

 

 

 

“The Smithsonian is proud to be able to share illuminating scholarship from the National Air and Space Museum in a format that allows for extraordinarily widespread distribution,” said Anna Cohn, SITES director. “‘Earth from Space’ inspires dreams and discovery, and while the photographs were taken from far away, they can launch learning opportunities about our lives here on earth.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The poster exhibition was born of the popular and award-winning museum exhibition of the same title that premiered November 2006 at the National Air and Space Museum. In 2007, “Earth from Space” won a U.S. Geological Survey communications award for science content.  The images provide clues about the nature of our planet and offer teachers opportunities to engage students in a broad array of science topics, including geography, environmental studies, ecology, oceanography and meteorology.

 

 

 

 

An educational companion web site, www.earthfromspace.si.edu, contains an online version of the SITES exhibition, and additional images and information. It also provides numerous educational resources, including lesson plans, classroom activities, web site links and available publications.

 

 

 

“Earth from Space” was developed by the Center for Earth and Planetary Studies at the National Air and Space Museum, in collaboration with SITES. Andrew Johnston, a geographer at the center and author of “Earth from Space” (Firefly Books, 2004), is the exhibition’s curator.

 

 

SITES has been sharing the wealth of Smithsonian collections and research programs with millions of people outside Washington, D.C., for more than 50 years. SITES connects Americans to their shared cultural heritage through a wide range of exhibitions about art, science and history, which are shown wherever people live, work and play.

In conjunction with the Smithsonian images, CCE has partnered with the South Florida Science Center & Aquarium to combine NASA images taken by photojournalist Gary Rothstein.  These images are comprised of shuttle launches and up-close detail shots of shuttle preparations for space travel.  Famed Florida landscape photographer, Clyde Butcher is also featured with his ‘God Speed’ image on loan that captured Astronaut John Glenn’s ascent as the oldest person to go into space aboard Discovery in 1988.  Exhibition support by the Cultural Council of Palm Beach County.  Also paired with the exhibition is a live performance of ‘The War of the Worlds: The 1938 Radio Script.’  This performance based on the novel by H.G. Wells will be performed live in CCE’s Hilton Theater which combines live performers and digital media in an unprecedented public offering not found anywhere else in Palm Beach County.

‘War of the Worlds’ is patterned after the Lux Radio Theatre program which ran for years through the 30’s, 40’s and 50’s. Lux Radio Theatre was indisputably the biggest, most important, most expensive drama anthology program on radio. It ran from October 14, 1934 until June 7, 1955, then continued on television as Lux Video Theatre until 1957. In all, some 926 one-hour episodes were broadcast, providing a record of the most important entertainment events in American theatre and, later, film. This production of ‘War of the Worlds’ features local actors and involves the use of live and recorded sound effects.

“Behind The Screen” Exhibit At Center For Creative Education Will Interest All Ages, Opening May 12

The Center For Creative Education understands that movies and music are an escape for many of us. Buying a movie ticket, popcorn, soda, and picking the right theater seat to embark on an extraordinary journey… Or scoring tickets to a concert to see your favorite band perform live… But what happens leading up to that point? What encouraged us to even want to see that movie or go to that concert? A new exhibit,“Behind the Screen”, looks at the details that lead up to such an experience. The public is invited to the Opening Reception on Saturday, May, 12th.  Marketing posters, props and art involved to pitch a story that will present itself on the big screen or on stage are all major keys to success. Posters for both movies and music performances will be highlighted as well as screen printing, which makes up a large number of artworks associated with both movies and music.  The Rickie Report shares the details and some sneak peeks.

MOVIES
“Marketers needed “still”  images to convey the plot and to get people’s attention to successfully sell the product. These posters had to be artistically pleasing to make audiences curious about how what is portrayed actually plays out in the film. Posters were created, usually painted by artists like Drew Struzan, that would show many images mixed together to portray the story on a grand scale. Sometimes, posters had a simple image from the movie that was so stunning, the viewer must know what it connects to. For the longest time, posters have succeeded in mixing advertising with artistry.” – The Reel Deal, Andre Haas

 

 

“Panic” Seattle Tour

 

MUSIC
“The beautiful psychedelic gig posters that helped define the 1960s San Francisco rock scene are no longer a lost, joss-stick-scented tradition. Musicians from Arcade Fire and PJ Harvey to Bob Dylan and Liza Minnelli are using limited-edition posters to accompany shows, as an often strikingly original counterpoint to their music. Just as in the old days, the artists silk-screen print by hand in batches of a few hundred… The posters also offer a return to the tangible fantasy world fans have always built around bands, resisting the retreat to music as a digital, invisible experience. “Bands don’t have a 12-inch gatefold sleeve now,” says the Flood Gallery’s manager Tom Warner, “they have a 600 x 600 pixel picture on iTunes. Posters give them an outlet.” – Ultimate pop art – Why gig posters are a sound investment, Nick Hasted

Bruce Helander presenting: Chihuly “An Artist Collects”
Lecture with Q&A

Saturday, February 17
2 to 3 pm

A special event hosted in The Hilton Theater at CCE

Free to the Public!

 

 

 

Dale Chihuly (b. 1941), one of the most inno­vative and iconic figures in contemporary art, is also an avid collector of everything from ceramic dogs to inkwells, vintage Christmas orna­ments, dollhouse furniture, plastic radios—you name it, Chihuly collects it. These everyday objects reflect the same playful, colorful aesthetic that can be seen in Dale Chihuly’s sculptures and installations.

Fully illustrated, Chihuly: An Artist Collects includes an essay by Chihuly’s longtime friend, artist Bruce Helander, who considers why people collect and explores the collections of artists such as Damien Hirst, Peter Blake, Andy Warhol, Pablo Picasso—and of course, Dale Chihuly.

Hands on collage workshop to examine working methods, concepts, glue process, and all other related activities to the medium of paper collage. A brief history introduction power point will give students a perspective on collage. Students should bring a pile of magazines, scissors, mat knife, pencils, and non-petroleum based glue (a water based glue).

 

 

City Link magazine called Bruce Helander “Arguably the most recognized and successful collage artist in the country…” and Kenworth Moffett, the former director of the Museum of Art, Fort Lauderdale, said in Gold Coast magazine that “If there was a Pulitzer Prize for collage, Helander would surely win it.” Helander has a master’s degree in painting from the prestigious Rhode Island School of Design, where he later became the Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs of the college. He is a former White House fellow of the National Endowment for the Arts and has won the South Florida Cultural Consortium fellowship for professional achievement in the visual arts.

Helander’s work is in over fifty museum collections, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, Brooklyn Museum, Smithsonian, Art Institute of Chicago, Los Angeles County Museum of Art, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Whitney Museum of American Art and Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) in Los Angeles. The artist and his work has been the subject of 100 reviews and articles in numerous publications, including Art in America, ARTnews, and The Washington Post.   (brucehelander.com)

Hubert Phipps in Studio

 

An American and British citizen, was born in Virginia in 1957. He attended the Art Students League in New York, the Deerfield Academy in Massachusetts, and the San Francisco Art Institute. In the 1980’s he was a professional automobile race driver. In 2005, he built an art studio in Northern Virginia.  Phipps’ artistry is found in permanent collections including: Coral Spring Museum of Art, Tufts University Gallery, Colorado Springs Museum of Art, and Fortin Conde de Mirasol, Vieques, Puerto Rico.  The artist uses many media, including charcoal drawings, sculpture, metal, and mixed media to express his creativty.

 

“Quantum Universe” by Hubert Phipps

 

 

 

Phipps shares the following about his creative process: “I like things that are different. That is what fascinates me about abstract art; the mystery of it. For the most part I think I know what I am looking at as I go about my daily routine, and that is reassuring. Especially when I am out navigating the byways and the skyways. Yet I yearn to discover new worlds, otherworldly type worlds that are lurking in the deeper recesses of the mind. I glimpse these worlds from time to time. It may come in the middle of the night, a vision, unidentifiable, yet lovely shapes appear and I don’t have a clue what they are. What is so tantalizing to me is the endless possibilities of what they can be and I feel compelled to flesh them out and capture them on paper, on canvas, or as a 3D object.

To me, the most powerful art is that which connects within me before I even start or analyze it through thought. It is not anything I can understand or describe by thinking but something that when I look at it I am filled with awe and wonderment. This is what I experience when I stand in the presence of the great works of art that have come before.

Creating art is my opportunity to experience the realm of the abstract mind in a very inmate way. From a practical standpoint the challenge is in transforming that vision into physical form. This is what goes on in the studio. With the strokes that I change and adjust constantly until it gives me that mysterious quality that I am looking for. The sculpture usually starts with a sketch but goes through its own metamorphosis necessary in converting the 2D drawing to a 3D object. During this process I strive to create beauty, balance and other aesthetic elements but somehow the work always takes on a life of its own. It just seems to happen despite the endless struggles I experience through the creative process.

In the end I am an observer as much as anything else.”

“Reflections” by Susan Kronowitz

 

 

Anyone who knows Susan Kronowitz knows that Thursday morning is her teaching day, both in her Illinois Del Webb Community and her home in Boynton Beach, FL.  She tells The Rickie Report, “I had many years of experience as a painter and studying the disciplines & methods of art as well as art history,  but no formal teaching education. When the opportunity arose, I was excited and love this new chapter in my life!

 

 

“Berries and Cream” by Susan Kronowitz

 

 

Susan’s artist mission includes,”The spirit of the place or scene is what I wish to reproduce.  Colors are often altered and painted completely different from what I observe…larger-than-life flowers capture the spirit of the garden in which the actual flowers are growing.  I feel that capturing the fleeing light and its effects, the shadows, is what creates a mood in all paintings.  I was inspired by Monet’s gardens on a trip to Giverny and knew that someday, I too, must paint the gifts of my garden.”

 

 

Floral by Susan Kronowitz

 

Susan shares with us, “I feel completely connected to all of my paintings, as they all began with a photograph of a place where I have visited”.  Traveling extensively opens the possibilities of a series of paintings and inspiration for new pieces of artwork just waiting to be released onto the canvas or paper.  Using the College of Lake County as her studio for over 25 years, Susan has been developing her own individual style, gaining experience and honing her craft.  Her artwork can be found in the permanent collection of CLC.

 

“Fruits” by Susan Kronowitz

 

 

Many of her students never had the chance to study art when they were younger, as they were all pursuing career. They are like sponges, ready to learn! “My students give me so much energy and it is amazing what they are creating!  The highlight of the year of the Annual Student Afternoon of Fine Art, a professionally presented exhibition showcase for the entire community to see what these students have accomplished in our classes together”.

 

Having studied with so many different art instructors over the years, Susan has developed her own style of teaching. “I give the students  the fundamentals and the first two classes are devoted to this.  We study color theory, mixing of paints and making a color chart.  I show them the basics and give them the space to create.  It is always amazing to see what they accomplish”!

 

“Prairie Voices” by Susan Kronowitz

 

In 2003, “Prairie Voices: A Collection of Student Writing/Art” was published  through the College of Lake County, highlighting Susan’s artistry. The Disappearing Barns of Illinois   “I actually was proud at one time to say that I don’t paint barns, but then they called me”.  Susan started her “Barn series” in response to the many farms being lost to developers in Lake County and the surrounding area.  Her paintings have become a “record of the barns that inhabited the land before the subdivisions that are now the urban landscape”.

 

“Disappearing Illinois Barns” by Susan Kronowitz

 

 

 

 

Students share, “From the first day I met her, I knew Susan was the teacher for us.  With her flexible attitude and ability to listen to our needs, each student has embraced painting and discovered abilities they didn’t even realize they possessed”!  May students had never drawn or painted before coming to Susan’s class.  It is remarkable the talent people have hidden within them. Susan teaches and encourages each student with a positive attitude. Through the years, she’s changed direction, depending on the groups’ needs. She invited inspiring artists to speak and arranges field trips to underline the necessity of nurturing while opening a new world to their eyes”.

 

Susan Kronowitz’ Art Work Published

 

 

 

Susan tells us, “The medium of Colored pencil lends itself so nicely to express food such as fruits and vegetables.  The style I developed is a painterly effect, obliterating the pencil mark and making images appear to be painted.  I was beyond thrilled to be included in “The Best Of Colored Pencil 1 and 2”, published by the Colored Pencil Association of America.  Imagine having my image chosen for the outside of The Gift Set of Colored Pencil I & II!

 

 

Susan Kronowitz’ Collection at Vida

 

For Susan’s 70th birthday, her younger daughter compiled a 193 page book, with professional photos, of Susan’s “Creative Lifetime Journey”.   Even as this article publishes, Susan continues to create and find new outlets for her beautiful paintings. Her latest endeavor is a collaboration with the Vida Company, which creates original, inspiring apparel based on Susan’s artwork.  Together, with Vida, Susan has created pillows, scarves, wraps, totes,and fashionable tops, all featuring her original designs.  Susan has received many awards for her artwork and her paintings have been exhibited in numerous shows, and can be found in several public and private collections.  In addition to working in colored pencil and oil painting, Susan brings her unique visual eye to beaded artistry as well.

WITVA is a non-profit 501(C)3 Organization which was founded in 1989, with the aim of promoting public interest in the visual arts through its programs and activities. The Organization serves as a forum in which members may network, share ideas and help one another achieve their artistic goals while at the same time giving back to the community.

 

WITVA membership is made up of exhibiting artists and non-exhibiting members, that is, those who are interested in art and our community projects. Members come from Port St. Lucie, Palm Beach County and Miami-Dade County.

Center for Creative Education (CCE) is a non-profit 501(c)3 Organization which was founded in 1994, with a mission to train teachers how to bring the arts back into school by integrating art into other classroom studies. Arts Integration is still vital to CCE’s in-school and out-of-school programs. Today CCE is utilizing its newly renovated 18,000 square foot facility in West Palm Beach to provide arts-based, technology-infused after-school programming. Arts in education is our passion while we envision a world where each child has the opportunity to learn and grow in the way that meets their needs, and allows them to reach their full potential as citizens and contributors to society.
