“On The Street” by lou anne colodny

 

 

 

 

lou anne colodny investigates contemporary issues concerning man/woman as he/she is ruffled by nature and society. Borrowing imagery from the internet, newspapers and magazines, she collages, manipulates materials, and uses her imagination to create her videos and drawings. In many of her works, she assumes faux personalities and thereby explores differing professions, values and actions that individuals pursue in their life journeys. She is fascinated by the psychology of life and how people react to it.

 

 

“Mindful” by lou anne colodny

 

 

lou anne colodny’s experiences in dance, theater and museum administration have greatly informed her videos, drawings and photographic work. She was a recipient of the 2008 South Florida Cultural Consortium Fellowship for Broward County and Best in Show for her videos in the 2005 Boca Museum of Art’s 54th Annual All Florida Exhibition. colodny was the founding director of MoCA, Museum of Contemporary Art in North Miami, Florida and director of its precursor, COCA for 15 years. Her studio is at Under the Bridge Art Space / Bridge Red Studios, North Miami, where she curates exhibitions of Miami Artists who are not represented by galleries in the front two spaces.

 

“On The Street Where You Live” by lou anne colodny

 

 

 

colodny’s videos have been included in five (5) Optic Nerve programs at MoCA; The Bridge in Carol Jazzar presents; the American Arena Video Wall; the Unaffiliated Artist Exhibition at the Living Room, Miami Design District; The House; The “NO” show, Beauty or Not curated by Carol Jazzar and the video programs of –SCOPE MIAMI, 2005 and –SCOPE NY 2006. She was juried into the 2007 Art and Culture Center / Hollywood All Florida exhibition. In 2008, she was the featured artist in their project room.

VA Creative Arts Therapist Sara E. Windrem explains that due to traumas many veterans don’t go to movie theaters and can’t go to the mall because of the crowds. The Armory has given the veterans a new comfort zone. Sara said, “I think people naturally know how to heal with art. Making them feel comfortable in a space and giving them the skills and the opportunity as a starting point is where the real healing and therapy takes place.”

About Grassy Waters Nature Preserve:

 

 

 

 

Grassy Waters Preserve is a 23 square mile wetlands ecosystem that serves as the freshwater supply for the City of West Palm Beach and the towns of South Palm Beach and Palm Beach Island. Historically, Grassy Waters was both a key component of the Greater Everglades watershed and the headwaters of the Northwest Fork of the Loxahatchee River.

Although human needs have lead to severe alterations to the flow of water through South Florida, Grassy Waters Preserve remains a pristine remnant of the once great Everglades system. A mosaic of wetlands, tree islands, and forested hammocks, Grassy Waters Preserve is home to a variety of native wildlife. Commonly sighted species including the Everglades snail kite, wood stork, white ibis, great blue heron, white tailed deer, otter, bobcat, and alligator.

In addition to meeting local demands for freshwater, Grassy Waters Preserve also provides hands-on educational experiences for learners of all ages. Access to this historic wetland reconnects visitors with the natural heritage of West Palm Beach. Trails of varying lengths and difficulties are accessible to the public free of charge. Experienced naturalists also provide guided canoe and hiking programs for the public, merit badge programs for scouts, and free field trips for local schools.

The continued pristine beauty of Grassy Waters Preserve is thanks to the Department of Public Utilities Watershed Management Division. The Watershed Management Division is dedicated to protect, preserve and restore the ecological integrity of Grassy Waters Preserve by preventing the proliferation of invasive species, promoting best management practices in water quality and conservation, and educating the public about he importance of this ecosystem.

 

Do your part to protect this wetland resource by adopting responsible water use practices. Remember you are depended upon the Preserve for water and the Preserve is dependent upon you for protection. Please help to ensure that Grassy Waters Preserve continues to meet both human and ecological freshwater needs for generations to come.

Vicki Siegel in her Studio

 

 

 

VICKI SIEGEL 

Vicki Siegel’s work combines painting and photography together.  She creates images that unite her fascination with the world around her with the physicality of paint. Blending the two art forms is a process that results in images that are both real and imaginary.  The photographers gaze allows her to observe and archive reality, while the paint flows from her subconscious to her brush in marks that are uniquely her own. Siegel says, “In my work I ask the viewer to engage by comparing what is photographic and what is paint, but also what is personal and what is universal”.

The Rickie Report shares the details with an in depth interview with Mark Cohen and some sneak peeks of his exhibit.

Exhibit runs November 30 – December 29, 2018

 

 

An exhibition of recent paintings, drawings, intaglio, and screen prints created at the Armory Art Center by faculty member and student, Mark Cohen. The collection makes us look at who we are and what we believe in. From the genocide of humans and animals in the last 75 years, this collection is snap shots that beg the question, “what has happened?.” The artist hopes that we can all take the next step and ask ourselves “What can I do to make this a better world?”

 

 

 

 

 

“Las Vegas” by Mark Cohen

 

 

Mark Cohen tells The Rickie Report, “Five years ago, I took a walk in the woods with my friend, Rabbi Howard Shapiro. We were at his home in Cedar Mountain, North Carolina. I was at a crossroads and needed help. So I asked my friend, “What does the Torah say about what I should do with the rest of my life.” He stopped walking.  And he said, “I’m retired. I’m not supposed to do this anymore.” After a brief moment or two, he said “Be Holy.” And we continued on our walk”.

 

 

 

Mark continues, “Unbeknown to Rabbi Shapiro, I had been watching him prepare for retirement for more than a year. And then he retired. I also watched Larry Bird, the basketball superstar, retire. And I watched my younger brother, Warren, retire. What they all had in common was they didn’t “retire.” I had no intention of retiring, but I did want to change my life. So, I watched the people I respected to see how they transitioned into new lives. What I learned was not to retire. You just do what you have always done, but differently. That was comforting”.

 

 

 

 

“9/11 Jumper” by Mark Cohen

 

 

Mark was ready to become a painter after a long career in advertising and marketing.  Being a painter was a life-long ambition.  “But, he says, ” I didn’t want to give up the other things that I’d always done.  So I didn’t!  I just made room for painting over a period of time and adjusted the time spent on my other activities.  I found the Armory Art Center: A place to learn how to paint, but so much more…a second family… including Board members, the Administration, faculty and students. Miroslav Antic, Jenny Day, Amber Tutwiler, Skip Measelle, Sam Perry, Bob Barra, Anthony Burks, Jr., Ron Garret and Richard Santiago are faculty members who have all contributed to my growth as an artist”. 

 

 

“I quickly found that the most difficult task in painting is choosing subject matter. I wanted to be an example for my son and daughter…that you could do something valuable later in life. That brings us back to Rabbi Shapiro’s admonition – ‘Be Holy’.  My interpretation of those words was ‘Do the Right Thing'”, Mark explains.

 

 

 

 

 

 

“Goodbye, Father Mike” by Mark Cohen

 

 

 

Mark clarifies, “To me, that meant paint about injustice. In a speech given at Amherst College on October 26, 1963, President John F. Kennedy passionately made the case for artists entering the societal issue venue when he said “If sometimes our great artists have been the most critical of our society, it is because their sensitivity and their concern for justice, which must motivate any true artist, makes him aware that our nation falls short of its highest potential. I see little of more importance to the future of this country than full recognition of the place of the artist.”

 

 

 

 

Mark Cohen feels that his purpose as an artist is to challenge our preconceived thinking about societal issues like genocide, foreign and domestic terrorism, racism, mass incarceration, police brutality, genocide of animals, mass shootings and gun violence in general, even what is art. “I hope my work makes people uncomfortable, for I believe that when people are uncomfortable it leads to the questioning of how and why these issues seem so difficult to confront and change”.

 

 

 

 

 

Mark Cohen is a graduate of Florida State University with BA and MFA degrees.  After graduation, he built a marketing communications firm that specializes in health care marketing. Clients included the University of Florida Physicians, Shands Hospital at the University of Florida, Duke University Medical Center, West Virginia University Hospitals, Scott & White in central Texas and many regional and community hospitals from Chicago to Miami. The firm earned hundreds of awards for creative excellence.

Artwork by Dana Donaty

 

 

 

Dana Donaty is known for her “Profoundly Playful” painting and sculpture series, which comes from an interest in satirical playfulness, fragments of timeless memory where nothing is sacred, and before that, for her “Dancers” series, and for her public art. Now she’s embarked on a dramatically different series, being shown and talked about for the first time: “Order + Collapse”, which explores the artist’s studio, and also the human body, through painting, sculpture, collage and assemblage. Her work wrestles with ideas of perception and source, unconscious knowledge and cognition.

 

 

 

“Profoundly Playful” blends reality and fantasy with narrative, satire, burlesque, psychology and “a super charged palette that is like a party about to get thoroughly out of control”. Every part is a series of actions and reactions. She places virgin canvas underneath the “in-process” painting on her easel, and ‘collects’ the excess paint that is flung, splattered, scraped, spilled and off loaded.

 

 

 

 

Just like the canvas before it, the floor work is then raised to eye level. From the aggregation of Rorschach-like blots of primordial color, a fresh composition and a new group of figurative characters emerge. Their shape serves as stimulus for free association – almost any irregular free shape can spark off the associative process. This is a central part of her creative process, giving life to a cast of characters, each exhibiting the vitality of their individual freedom, each one leading to another – creating, conceptually, a visual display of memories sourced from the subconscious.

 

 

 

 

Artwork by Dana Donaty

 

 

 

 

In addition to this auto-associative memory process, Dana often assimilates ideas or phrases from things people say or from books on audio that she listens to while working. She says: “My process mirrors the way in which we learn, we cannot ultimately control how information finds us or how we process it. Therefore, I regard chance as the organizing principle employed in constructing each painting.

 

 

 

 

In response to the chance convergence of memories, thoughts, sounds, emotions, and other stimuli, I attempt to control the uncontrollable through a narrative, layered with numerous subplots, that is personal, implied and universal. My work is my poetic theater of uncertainty, popular culture, universal truths, personal experiences and the modern condition. The viewer can partake in a stable set of meanings or challenge the imagery with their own sense of wonder.”

 

 

Artwork by Dana Donaty

 

 

 

Dana grew up in New Jersey, in a family with mixed Colombian, Peruvian, Italian, Irish and American backgrounds. She has a BA in Drawing from Moore College of Art & Design in Philadelphia, PA. After living in London for twelve years, she relocated to Florida in 2006, where she now lives and works in Miami and Delray Beach. Since 2014, she has been an Artist-in-Residence at Bakehouse Art Complex, Miami.

 

Artwork by Dana Donaty

 

 

Dana will be having a solo exhibition at The Cornell Museum of Art in Delray Beach, opening Dec 5. Her work was recently on view in a solo retrospective exhibition at Coral Springs Museum of Art, Coral Springs, FL. and has been shown at international art fairs like Art Palm Beach, Art Boca Raton, the American International Fine Art Fair, Scope and major group shows throughout Florida. Other selected solo shows include Fordistas Gallery in Miami, Paul Fisher Gallery in Palm Beach and The Ora Sorensen Gallery in Palm Beach. Her work is in both public and private collections in the US, and Europe.

 

She has completed many award-winning public art projects, and has been featured in over 50 national and international publications. She has garnered multiple awards within the design industry, as she has been sought after to create unique commissions for high profile residential and commercial projects.
