“Beauty For Ashes” by TD Gillespie

 

 

TD Gillispie is a multidisciplinary artist working in installation, oil painting, and mixed media. The medium selected to make an artwork is one which might make the intended point the strongest. The art is provocative, reflective, and metaphoric, as she is continually exploring our deepest thoughts, feelings and fantasies in new and unexpected ways. Her installations are room-like reflective spaces created using specific found objects that inspire and trigger memory. These objects are determined after much consideration of how to deliver a specific message.

 

“Big Bang” by TD Gillespie

 

 

She states, “With these found objects I re-purpose them to create a space to give new meaning to an old object but keeping the integrity of the original object as a part of the focus. This is a juggling act.” Some recurring themes are toys, home, introspection, and sweet/sinister. The work is centered on reflection of thoughts from the past merged with present circumstances that we all face.

 

 

“The Spirit House” by TD Gillespie

 

TD Gillispie lives and works in West Palm Beach, Florida. Her work has been exhibited in galleries and museums including Dacia Gallery in New York City, Art Palm Beach, 101 Exhibit in Miami, Boca Raton Museum of Art, and Whitespace: The Mordes Collection in West Palm Beach. Gillispie’s paintings have been featured in Studio Visit Magazine. She was born in Columbus, Ohio and attended Marshall University. TD is the Palm Beach County 2016 winner of the South Florida Cultural Consortium.

 

 

“Peepshow” by TD Gillespie

 

 

One of her installations, “Peepshow”, is on view in “Inhabited” at the Projects in FATVillage, Fort Lauderdale through its final Art Walk on Saturday, March 30, and another, which will include “Big Bang” and “Bazooka” along with new work, will be installed in the same location for an exhibition entitled, “Ripped From the Headlines”, opening for preview on Friday, April 26, and Art Walk, Saturday, April 27.

Gallery Managers, Maxine Schreiber and Irma Friedman tell The Rickie Report, “People find sustenance and solace, challenge and mystery in the natural world, and art has been a means by which humans express their awe of, communion with, dependence on, and isolation from nature. Artists in every medium from painting to photography to jewelry were asked to submit work which represented their relationship with or feelings about wildlife, plants, or landscapes”.

 

 

Lupe Lawrence, a landscape painter and art teacher at the Center for Creative Education and the Progressive Afterschool Art Community Education program (PACE) at the Norton Museum as well as a Lake Park resident was the judge for awards. An awards presentation will take place on March 29th at 6:00 PM. Don’t miss this exhibit!

 

“Spring Blossom” by Yi Yuan Hong

 

 

 

 

 

Our Certificate of Solicitation allows us to pursue tax-deductible donations to generate scholarship monies. In December and January, APBC presented “ART by the Inch” in which the gallery sold artworks produced and donated by our members to raise funds for our scholarship program. This is a worthy cause and we are hoping for more donations, which people can provide by going to artistsofpalmbeachcounty.com or clicking on this link https://www.artistsofpalmbeachcounty.com/donations.

About The National League of American Pen Women:

The Boca Raton Branch of the National League of American Pen Women (NLAPW) is an organization of professional women in the arts – writers, artists and music composers. Established 43 years ago, the Boca Raton Branch is one of the largest branches in the country.

Members have opportunities to interact with other professional women and showcase their creative work in public forums. Workshops, art exhibits, lectures, music programs, competitions and special events are offered. The Branch supports the local community through outreach programs and scholarships awards.

The National League, headquartered in Washington, D.C., is the oldest women’s organization in the U.S. Throughout its 120-year-history, the NLAPW has attracted many prominent women to its rosters, including Eleanor Roosevelt, Pearl Buck, Erma Bombeck and Edna Hibel. Vinnie Ream, whose statue of President Lincoln stands in the U.S. Capitol Rotunda, was an early member of the NLAPW.

From October to April, the Boca Raton Branch holds luncheon programs, featuring interesting and inspiring speakers. Guests are welcome to attend the luncheons and meet our creative members. To register for a luncheon, visit our Web site and download a reservation form.

Mary Christou’s Green Steampunk Bee Watch Face

 

 

 

 

Mary Christou asks, “Are you bored when you walk into the mall or the jewelry store? Do you have trouble finding pieces that express your personality, and don’t offend your values”?    She tells The Rickie Report, “That was me, and that’s why I started making jewelry about ten years ago. Minimalist style is lovely and classic, but it’s not who I am. In stores, the Boho pieces I did like were often of poor quality, and mass-produced in third-world sweatshops, both things that go against my core values”.

 

Mary Christou’s “Alice Queen of Hearts Necklace”

 

 

 

Mary describes herself as a daydreamer, a lover of books and movies and music. She loves science fiction, Steampunk, fairy tales, and all things Medieval and Arthurian. Art Nouveau is her favorite movement, and she is inspired by nature, the forests, the oceans.

 

 

 

Mary Christou’s “Steampunk Heart Cuff bracelet”

 

“For years, I just bought simple clothes and jewelry that didn’t make me feel special at all, suppressing what I was inside. But then creative expression began seeping through, and finally exploded out of me. Now I can’t keep it in anymore.  Once I started making jewelry and giving it to friends, it just wouldn’t stop. Pretty soon, there was so much, I had to find more people to share it with. There’s nothing like the joy of seeing someone else feeling special and expressing herself by wearing my pieces”!

 

 

Mary Christou’s “Mermaid and Roman Glass necklace”

 

 

Mary goes beyond herself as she creates high quality art jewelry, often with recycled materials. 10% of her jewelry and class sales go to two charitable organizations: WaterAid provides clean water and basic sanitation for people in 38 countries (and counting). Kiva gives those less fortunate a leg up in their businesses so they can feed their families. She says, “I believe there is room for all of us and we can all help each other. I have also learned the joy of teaching jewelry-making to others, especially when they may have thought they were not “artsy” at all because they couldn’t draw. We are all creative, and if you can use a twist-tie, you can make jewelry from just about anything.  So do join me on this journey, because we all deserve to express ourselves and feel special every day”!
