At the age of 11, Ouporov won admittance into the Moscow State Academy Art Lyceum, graduated at 18, and earned a Master of Fine Arts from the Moscow Surikov State Academy Art Institute.

“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.

“Little Red Rising Hood As A Crime Scene” by Jeanne Jaffe

 

 

 

 

 

Jeanne Jaffe is a sculptor, video and installation artist who recently moved to Florida from Philadelphia where she is Professor Emeritus in the Fine Arts Department at the University of the Arts. She is also a visiting artist/professor at Xian Academy of Fine Arts in China each fall and is currently the coordinator of International Projects at the Jaffe Center for Book Arts.

 

 

 

“Supplicant” Part of the T.S. Eliot Installation

 

 

Jaffe’s work is inspired by an interest in anthropology, mythology, and psychology. Her work “explores how identity is formed from early, pre-verbal, bodily experiences through the later influences of language and culture. In installations that re-examine cultural myths and stories, such as “Little Red Riding Hood as a Crime Scene” or “Eulogy for Nikola Tesla”, well known folktales, history, and poetry are re-imagined through a contemporary lens. These multi-sensory environments are composed of sculpture, videos, interactive elements, stop motion animation and sound and supply a context to question and rethink our cultural assumptions.”

 

 

 

“Elegy for Tesla” by Jeanne Jaffe

 

 

 

Ms. Jaffe is the recipient of fellowship grants from the Gottlieb Foundation for Outstanding Artistic Development, the National Endowment for the Arts, the Mid Atlantic/NEA. the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, the Leeway Foundation, the Independence Foundation, CEVA Foundation, the Virginia A. Groot Foundation, and the Mino Artist Residency in Japan, among others.

 

 

Works by Ms. Jaffe have been exhibited both nationally and internationally at such places as the Seokdang Museum of Art in Korea, the Mino-Washi Akari Museum in Japan, The Royal Scottish Academy of Edinburgh, Scotland, Museum Rijswijk in Holland, London Craft Council Gallery in England, the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Art Museum in Philadelphia, the Delaware Art Museum, Hillwood Art Museum, and the Michener Art Museum. Her work has been reviewed extensively, including in Art in America, The New York Times, and Sculpture Magazine. She holds a B.F.A. from Tyler School of Art and an M.F.A. from New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred.

 

 

Details of “Four Quartets” by Jeanne Jaffe

 

 

Jeanne Jaffe will be showing her work locally at an exhibition of artist books and prints at IS Projects in FATVillage, Fort Lauderdale during March and April. She’ll have a solo exhibition of completed work and work in progress at Arts Warehouse in Delray Beach from the end of April through May.

“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.

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.”
