JUROR:

Bruce Helander is an art critic, arts writer, curator and artist whose specialty is collage and assemblage. He 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. He is one of two 2014 inductees to the Florida Artists Hall of Fame, Florida’s most prestigious arts and culture honor (the other is musician Tom Petty).

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.”

His 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.

Helander is the former Editor-in-Chief of The Art Economist magazine and recently exhibited his work at Georgia Scherman Projects (Toronto), Corzine Fine Art (Los Angeles), Peter Marcelle Gallery (Bridgehampton, New York), Cornell Museum of Art (Delray Beach), and ArtHouse 429 (West Palm Beach). Most currently, his work was shown by Arcature Fine Art at Art Miami and Art Miami New York/Pier 94 and by Tansey Contemporary at Art Wynwood.  Helander is now focusing on a retrospective of his collages and paintings for the Coral Springs Museum of Art, scheduled for 2017, and his collages are included in “Open This End,” a five-year traveling museum show of works from the celebrated Blake Byrne collection in Los Angeles, currently at the Nasher Museum of Art.

The National Association of Women Artists, Florida Chapter exhibits within the Sallie & Berton Korman Gallery at the Center For Creative Education.  “The Influence of Frida Kahlo on Contemporary Art” inspired NAWAFL artists to use the elements of Frida Kahlo’s work to inspire their own, contemporary artworks.  Our Exhibition Inspiration:  “I paint my own reality.  The only thing I know is that I paint because I need to, and I paint whatever passes through my head without any other consideration.” Frida Kahlo

 

 

Frida Kahlo’s artistic depiction of her reality was forged through her pain.   She had been crippled by polio at a very early age which severely stunted her right leg.  Later, while studying Medicine (at 18 years old), she was involved in and survived a horrific accident that resulted in smashing her legs (her right one had to be amputated), as well as breaking her back and receiving multiple internal injuries.  Yet she persevered and found her new direction, in life, through her art.  She lived her life unapologetic.  She never pretended to be something other than who she was.  She embraced her Mexican Heritage, she spoke her mind when it came to politics or matters of the heart.  And she painted through her pain.   It is her warrior spirit that resonates with so many women and artists today.

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.

WHERE IS BUILDING T6?

The easiest way to find our venue is to keep your eyes open for the blue and white MAKERS MARKETPLACE signs we’ll have posted on campus roads directing you to the market. Historic T6 and its neighboring companion Building T5 are remnants from the World War II era Boca Raton Army Airfield. The two buildings are easily spotted as they look nothing like the rest of our campus buildings. They both resemble old army barracks buildings with tall brick chimneys rising from the center of each. They are located on FAU’s Boca Raton campus, at the northeast corner, very close to Henderson School and the FAU Football Stadium and directly across the street from the east entrance of Palm Beach State College. We will have directional road signs placed strategically on main campus roads directing you to the place, along with free, close-by parking.

 

From the NEW I-95 interchange and Spanish River Boulevard: The brand new I-95 interchange for Florida Atlantic University (Exit 48A) takes you directly from the interstate to FAU. Once you pass the traffic light at Spanish River Boulevard, you are on the FAU campus on FAU Boulevard. Keep to the left lane and you will see a blue and white MAKERS MARKETPLACE sign directing you to make a soft left onto NW 8th Avenue. Our venue at historic Building T6 will come up soon after. Should you miss the soft left onto NW 8th Avenue, stay on FAU Boulevard; you will soon see a field on your right and then FAU Stadium. Stay in the left lane, and you’ll see another blue and white MAKERS MARKETPLACE sign directing you to turn left at Palm Beach State College Drive. Turn left again at NW 8th Avenue. Our venue at historic Building T6 will be on the right.

 

 

 

From Glades Road: Enter the FAU campus at the main entrance (the one closest to I-95) and you will find yourself on West University Drive. Continue straight. The road will curve eventually and become North University Drive and FAU Stadium will soon be in view. There will be a traffic light just past the stadium. Continue straight, and make a left turn at the stop sign, onto NW 8th Avenue. On your right, across from the entrance to Palm Beach State College, is T6, a long single-story building with a tall brick chimney. This is the place!

 

 

FREE EASY PARKING
In Lot 45, which is the parking lot just north of Buildings T5 and T6, just steps away from our venue!

 

 

Our goal is to help you be the best human you can be.
