Deborah Perlman Is Featured For SOLO Exhibit At Pompano Beach Cultural Center January 12 – March 22, 2024 Experience The Free Opening Reception And Free Workshops

South Florida artist Deborah Perlman has exhibited her work throughout Florida and the U.S., winning several awards and appearing in art publications as a featured artist.  The Pompano Beach Cultural Center kicks off Deborah’s SOLO exhibition, “Somewhere In Between” on Friday, January 12, 2024.  You can participate in free workshops throughout the time of the exhibit, January 12 – March 22, 2024.  Her art depicts an ‘almost-but-not-quite-real’ world somewhere between authentic and imagined as she celebrates ambiguity, sliding in and out of reality. Her pieces compel us to challenge previous ideas and established thoughts.  The Rickie Report shares the details and some sneak peeks.

“Nature – Tecture” by Deborah Perlman

 

 

A graduate of Boston University (BFA, sculpture) and Cranbrook Academy of Art (MFA, sculpture), Deborah Perlman. She opted for a career in communications, enabling her to travel and use her art training in new ways and has now transitioned to create her artworks which are featured in private collections.  Influenced by her training, Perlman creates abstract wall-mounted sculpture. Her ‘almost-but-not-quite-real’ spaces land somewhere between authentic and imaged, inviting the viewer into the scene to discover where they find themselves.

 

 

 

 

“Denied” by Deborah Perlman

 

 

At her latest and longest gig, she was corporate director of communications of an international hotel company. She tells The Rickie Report, ” I ENJOYED every minute of my business career – and YES, I took my art education and talent with me. Besides using the art school principles of creativity, commitment, hard work, and continuity in my jobs, I actually created presentations, websites, brochures, fact sheets — you name it.  On my time off, I was drawing, making collage, and taking photos.  And, by traveling the world for the hotel company, I was enriched artistically beyond measure”.

 

 

 

 

 

“Secret Woods” by Deborah Perlman

 

 

 

Perlman’s influences include African sculpture; the Constructivism, Geometric Abstraction, and Cubism (Picasso, Braque, Lipschitz) art movements; the work of Louise Nevelson; the ‘illogical perspective’ of Giorgio de Chirico and M.C. Escher; Joseph Cornell’s shadow boxes; and Frank Stella’s metal reliefs, among others.

 

 

ENTER   A   WORLD

 

 

SOMEWHERE    BETWEEN    REAL    AND    IMAGINED

 

 

 

Deborah tells us, ” Every day, before I start in the studio, I stop and silently express my gratitude for this gift and the privilege to share my work with you. I find excitement and mystery in three-dimensional forms and spaces. Creating wall-mounted sculpture draws me in, challenging me to go beyond what I know and uncover what I don’t. It’s thrilling yet at times unsettling, continually bringing me to new awareness and understanding. Simply put, the work frees my spirit”.

 

 

 

 

 

“Somewhere Between” by Deborah Perlman

 

Her goal is to create spaces that challenge the senses, evoke emotion, and ask you to consider:

  • What is it?

  • Where is it?

  • What do you see and feel?

  • Do you find yourself in it, or not?

 

Inspiration has come from many of her personal experiences throughout the years. Recently, global issues such as climate change, prejudice and divisiveness are finding their way into her work.  She is currently working with paper, photographs, wire mesh, flat aluminum wire, wood, plastic, and adhesives, and continually looking for new materials to integrate into each piece. She explains,” Building three-dimensional forms, I adhere each element to the base, then juxtapose them to highlight their points of contact and the shadows they cast. I invite you to glimpse into my interpreted world and find your place within it.

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.

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.

WATERMEDIA WORKSHOP

Sue Archer    NWS AWS TWSA  FWS

3 days   January 16, 17, 18, 2024

 

Watercolors and Acrylics

     Level: Adv. Beginners thru Advanced

(2 years of painting experience needed)

                                                                                                                 

 

              

Your days will be filled with daily demos, lectures, color or design projects and on-going critiques.  A personal, one on one consultation time may be available.

 

 

This is a course designed to inspire your creativity by learning to “see” and experience some different design and composition concepts; and understand the power of planning even if you are an “intuitive painter”. Designed to inspire adv. beginners and provide a review and challenge for the advanced student.

 

Member Registration                        Non-Member Registration

 

 

 

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.

“First Light” Everglades by Phoenix 

 

 

“With each image, it’s always my intent to raise awareness of endangered and threatened species and habitats that we stand to lose if we are not careful.”  ~Phoenix

 

 

 

 

This exhibition captures the soul of nature as seen through the eyes of internationally collected, award-winning conservation photographer Phoenix. Called a “legendary photographer” by art gallery curators and “intrepid” by collectors, her works are known for capturing the intersection of art and healing, transporting viewers to a place of peace and meditation. Phoenix’ photographic images reflect her devotion to protecting the natural environment, sense of oneness with the light and soul of the land and its inhabitants and a reverence for wild places. The exhibition showcases works taken during her two artist residencies – Ireland’s Wild Atlantic Way and Great Smoky Mountains National Park — as well as from her Sacred Trees, Landscape, Winged Life, Venice, and National Parks Collections, including the Everglades.

“The importance of nature is more than a scientific necessity for creating air, clean water and producing food. It is a sacred necessity for healing and bringing peace to the human soul.” ~Phoenix.

 

 

 

 

For Phoenix, the extraordinary beauty of nature and wilderness are a wonder. Attempting to fix them in time is her passion; photography is her art. Known for her painterly approach to composition, light, color and texture, she is an internationally collected, award-winning conservation photographer whose works are in more than 90 private and corporate collections worldwide, including the Cleveland Clinic Hospital in Weston, Florida which acquired 22 large works by Phoenix for their permanent collection in the Women’s Center. 

 

 

 

 

“Land of Blue Smoke” by Phoenix

 

 

 

Phoenix established a love of nature and the art of seeing as a child during family vacations to national parks when she stood next to her father who was taking photographs. Although, she taught film-making and photography early in her career she left them for some 20 years. Rising above several “dark nights of the soul” life experiences, she returned to her love of nature and photography in the digital age, developing an exceptional talent and passion to help protect nature and wildlife. And, she has been the beneficiary of the healing power of both.

 

 

 

“Rosie” by Phoenix

 

 

 

Phoenix is the recipient of two month-long Artist-In-Residence programs, Great Smoky Mountains National Park and Olive Stack Gallery in Ireland; the Virtual Artist-in-Residence for the Center for Great Apes Art4Apes Exhibition; the featured artist for the first Endangered Exhibit – United Kingdom; two public art grants, nine public art awards and many other prestigious awards, including the Julia Cameron International Photography Contest, winning Best Landscape and Seascape Series. She was appointed to the first Public Art and Placement Advisory Board, City of Fort Lauderdale and the Citizen Review Panel, Broward Cultural Division.

 

 

“Morning Fog” by Phoenix

 

 

Her works have graced national magazine covers and been featured in newspapers, magazines and blog posts – print and online internationally. She was invited to be the first photographer to “takeover” the Instagram page for the Friends of Loxahatchee National Wildlife Refuge. Currently she is the serving her fourth term as president of the National League of American Pen Women. A native Miamian, Phoenix lives and works in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. When not traveling, she calls the Everglades her sanctuary studio.
