Fiber artist Jacquelyn Roesch-Sanchez shares a collection of wearable art created using rich, vibrantly colored threads.  The brilliance of the saturated colors and tensile strength of the material that looks similar to silk and is easily wearable for everyone. She tells The Rickie Report, “My early inspirations for color and design came from Issey Miyake, Missoni, Mark Rothko, Sonia Delaunay and Clyfford Still. Through the availability of opportunities that came my way, I built a knitting business. It incorporated a line of sweaters and knitted costumes for movies, plays and commercials. I became an exhibiting artist at Julie Artisan’s Gallery on Madison Avenue in Manhattan”.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Wearable art became Jackie’s preferred expression as art galleries and museums included her works in their Art to Wear shows. To date, she has been making one-of-a-kind and limited edition Art to Wear for forty-six years. Never one to stay in a rut, she branched out from wearables to several new expressions. “In 2008, I knitted a 12’ x 22’ ceiling that was commissioned for a restaurant lobby in Montclair, New Jersey. The imagery depicted a sunset seen from an airplane and incorporated 275 colors of thread.  

 

 

 

 

“From January to March, 2022, I created eight meditation screens measuring 26” x 48.” The screens can be mounted on walls or hung from the ceiling. Each piece depicts a place in time captured from my memories. Recently, I mounted small works on drapery and upholstery fabrics and attached them to canvases”.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Rachel Tribble tells The Rickie Report, “Pushing into the balance between our world and within the ethers, my work stands at the edge of mythology and pop culture. It offers a vision that disrupts chaos and infuses unification, calm and a sense of place”.

 

 

 

 

“I am most at home in the silence of nature where I can connect with the elements, trees, flowers and wildlife as I work, in oil, watercolor, graphite and the elemental force of color. My inspiration draws from Indigenous mythology and ceremony, sun cults, cave art and megalithic petroglyphs, recalling a time when humans communicated differently”.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Rachel invokes the peaceful spirits of the forests, waters, air, and the sun, hoping to envelop the viewer in the protection of trees rooted in the living earth, calm healing water, and occasionally, small dwellings deep within painting. These all point to the undeniable power of community and the oneness of humanity and the Earth herself. 

 

 

 

Rachel believes that the ability to see nature holding more power than we do offers us perspective in our lives, realizing today’s tribulations are critical, but also small from a greater community view of peace. The work offers healing, solace, and safety. A reassuring gateway to peaceful well-being for all people.

Zoey Alyssa’s Mural Kicks Off Peacock Arts District Celebration In Downtown Fort Pierce Monday, September 25th

The Peacock Arts District (PAD) Mural Program Inauguration and Artwalk will feature artist, Zoey Alyssa on Monday, September 25, 2023 in Downtown Fort Pierce, FL.   Zoey and two other artists, Nico and Samara are excited to bring a  renewed sense of community to an artistic-rich history on the Treasure Coast of Florida.  The Public is invited to this Free Event.  The Rickie Report shares the details and a conversation with Zoey, as she delves into her own family’s history, reckoning back to her grandfather’s framing Beanie Backus’ artworks!  Zooey, a multi-disciplined artist, also teaches pottery at Treasure Coast Pottery.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

MONDAY,  SEPTEMBER 25, 2023

Zoey Alyssa painting en plein air

 

 

Zoey Alyssa is an emerging artist from Fort Pierce, FL looking to spread the luxury of art within the community around her. Working predominantly in acrylics, Zoey is a muralist and live event painter who enjoys creating art inspired by the surrounding biodiversity, Florida has to offer.

 

 

Zoey tells The Rickie Report, “As an artist, my goal is to encourage creative thinking; creative thinkers manifest stronger communities. TIGRESS Mural & Design was born as an immersive, guided, and collaborative experience for curating bold and unique murals for individuals and businesses that are art-inspired, experience-loving, luxury-driven, and want to see the community grow”. 

 

 

A framed painting hung over her dining room table growing up. Zoey was always told it was the work of ‘a Great Grandfather’. Her mother said he was a watercolorist, however, this was an oil painting. Not much more was known to these speculations…

 

 

 

 

Zoey’s family legacy of artists and her connection to Beanie Backus

 

 

 

Diving deeper into studies as an artist, getting older and becoming more curious about her roots – Zoey did some digging and found her Great Grandfather Herbert Neuburger’s son, Philip. This would make Philip a Great Uncle. He has been kind to take her calls and give me a little insight on the family’s art history – he himself is a local copper artist. He spent a great deal of his childhood in Stuart and at the family’s boat rental business located on the White City River right off of Midway Road. Philip’s family was able to purchase the property due to a successful Interior Design Business located in Stuart- the first of it’s kind.

 

 

Philip has sent images of artwork and shared stories of time spent in Beanie Backus’ Fort Pierce Studio with his dad, Herb. Even though Herb was already a watercolorist from Germany, you may be able to note influences of landscape artists of the time like Beanie and the style of the area in the images seen. Apparently, Herb framed a lot of Beanie’s preeminent work and was said to have created the wooden sign that hung outside the historic Fort Pierce studio that is shaped like a painting pallet. It’s very neat to discover she has relatives who were and continue to be professional artists!

 

 

 

 

Paintings by Zoey Alyssa

 

 

In 2017, her art career got started at a local pottery & paint studio where she found herself teaching an array of people the power of a paint brush and the raw beauty of clay. Zoey is a self -taught painter and ceramist; painting for as far back as she can remember. But did she not start taking it seriously until about 2017.

 

 

Zoey Alyssa painting a commissioned mural

 

 

 

Now, Zoey Alyssa is a full time artist, creating residential and commercial murals, live event paintings and custom commissions. She still teaches the fundamentals of clay at Treasure Coast Pottery in Port Saint Lucie. Her mural work is on display as a public installation located in the Peacock Arts District in her hometown of Fort Pierce, Florida. It was quite the pleasure to paint murals on the very streets her mother played on as a child. She wishes to be a part of more projects like The PAD Mural Program. To see the FPRA (Fort Pierce Redevelopment Agency) in action, making connections in the community with this program is what she is all about! Public art helps create an identity for a city and cultivate the culture it has to offer. 

 

 

 

 

 

Zoey Alyssa and her artworks

 

 

 

Zoey Alyssa founded Tigress Mural & Design in 2022; marked as the year of the tiger. She says, “Tigress Mural & Design is an experience. Licensed and insured, Tigress is a creative experience offered to those who are not so comfortable in the execution of human creative skill”. Zoey Alyssa works with you in manifesting your world into the one you wish to see and involve yourself in.

 

 

 

Zoey Alyssa and Tigress Mural & Design

 

 

Zoey shares, “By definition, as an artist your job is to demonstrate the human creative, through skill and technique. Art for decades has been deemed a luxury, yet studies show over time that in order for communities, cities, and economies to thrive art must be present. Art insists an abundance is existing and this idea often relates art to luxury and not something that is necessary. This abundance when present however, leads to stronger generations and overall healthier, confident contributing members to society. In other words, if we have the time to create and imagine outside of our world, we are therefore succeeding and conquering inside of it. This very idea is what manifested Tigress Mural & Design”.

Classic Rock Band Gunhill Road Breaks New Ground with AI Images. How Will AI Impact The Visual Arts?

One of the most important new developments in the world of visual arts – not to mention all forms of communication – is the advent of artificial intelligence (AI). AI’s impact on the world of art is already profound and this is just the beginning.  The implications for intellectual property rights and copyright protection have lawyers and legislators burning the midnight oil.  As far as art itself is concerned, critics and artists alike are debating what constitutes original creativity versus cold algorithm-generated garbage in/garbage out. Fortunately, there is growing evidence supporting the adage that the technology of today becomes the art of tomorrow.  The Rickie Report shares an interview with Michael Harrison and Matthew B. Harrison about their AI journey.

 

 

Classic Rock Band Gunhill Road

 

 

Breaks New Ground with AI Images 

 

 

Artwork by Matthew B. Harrison from Gunhill Road‘s  “I Got A Line in New York City

 

 

I Got a Line in New York City”  combines classic Dixieland/Jazz/Blues/Rock/Broadway organic music with graphics assisted by generative artificial intelligence. 

 

 

“According to the experts, AI is poised to dramatically change our lives in countless ways – some for the good while others could be frighteningly dangerous”. Michael Harrison  

 

 

The visual images that bring stunning dimension to the production were created by human artists – under the direction of the video’s producer, media/intellectual property attorney Matthew B. Harrison (Michael’s son and business partner) – who tapped into the assistance of AI on every panel.

 

 

 

 

Artwork by Matthew B. Harrison from Gunhill Road‘s  “I Got A Line in New York City

 

 

 

The historic rock band Gunhill Road, a group that’s been around for decades and admired by its loyal following for releasing innovative music videos, has bravely applied leading-edge generative AI in the production of its latest track, “I Got a Line in New York City.”  The song is a genre-bending combination of jazz, rock, and blues with a Broadway flair. Michael Harrison – a legendary figure in the radio industry – serves as lead vocalist on the song which he co-wrote with bandmates Steve Goldrich, Paul Reisch and Brian Koonin. 

 

 

 

 

Artwork by Matthew B. Harrison from Gunhill Road‘s  “I Got A Line in New York City

 

 

 

The catchy tune, further energized by its provocative music video, is slightly abstract and even mystical – while, simultaneously, heart-tugging and down-to-earth. The engaging narrative puts an ultra-modern-but-somewhat-retro twist on the classic story of a young person whose lifelong dream of making it on the Broadway stage is dashed by the cold, harsh reality of the big time.

 

 

 

 

 

Artwork by Matthew B. Harrison from Gunhill Road‘s  “I Got A Line in New York City

 

 

Matthew tells the Rickie Report, “The experience of employing the assistance of ‘generative artificial intelligence’ to render these images of an ‘alternate universe’ version of the Big Apple, sprinkled with bizarre characters and weird technology, has been one of the most exciting, challenging, and educational experiences of my media career. We even left a number of AI ‘warts’ and ‘glitches’ in the production, such as gibberish street signs and a man with two left hands – which add to the adventure. This pioneering experience has given me first-hand insights into the application of AI in both the creative and legal arenas.”

 

 

 

 

Artwork by Matthew B. Harrison from Gunhill Road‘s  “I Got A Line in New York City

 

 

 

Matthew adds, “The key to keeping this more art than schlock is to patiently tell the software exactly what you have in mind but not expect it to do the abstract or visionary work for you. You have to tell it what’s in your head.  If you can’t do that, none of your work using AI will be original. However, properly finessed, the AI will go to great lengths to gather the elements you need along with a few unexpected nuances and make your original vision come to life quicker than you could before.  AI can improve an artist’s expression in much the way the paint brush was an advancement over finger painting on the walls of caves.”

“I Got a Line in New York City” by Gunhill Road can be viewed by clicking here: www.igotaline.com.

 

 

 

Michael Harrison adds, “Artists can rise to the occasion by learning the parameters of the new technology and learning how to “finesse” (talk to) the software to be able to execute original visions that are beyond the experience of the data base. It’s the difference between cooking from a recipe or creating new dishes from your own imagination and experience. After all, most art is imitative. Artists often fool themselves into believing they were the first to do what they are doing. AI will challenge them to truly be original”.

This semester’s AiRs include Leonardo Montoya, Gregory Dirr, Kim Ferguson, Gerard Pastor, Shanna L. Woods, Darcy Roberts and Manzi Liu.

 

 

 

Pompano Beach Arts is thrilled to announce that we are launching Old Town Untapped Summer Sizzle. The June edition will feature Fin, the final group exhibition of our 2022-23 Artists in Residence (AiRs) program. This summer block party will showcase the residents’ artwork in the BaCA main gallery and will feature the band Girlfriend Material on the main outdoor stage. The fun kicks off on Friday, June 2 at 5:30 p.m.  Food trucks will be on site, but vendors will not be present. The exhibition will be on view until June 30, 2023. The rest of our Summer Sizzle lineup will be announced shortly.

 

 

 

 

 

“Old Town Untapped is back by popular demand,” said Ty Tabing, Director, Cultural Affairs Department. “When we announced we were taking the summer off, we were overwhelmed with requests to keep the party going! The Summer Sizzle version will have a smaller footprint, without the vendors, but will continue to feature the best live bands and art exhibitions. This summer, guests will also have the opportunity to enjoy the new South Kitchen and Bar and explore the new Old Town Backyard area behind BaCA.”

 

 

 

 

 

During the June event, guests will get to meet the outstanding artists who participated in the newly revamped AiRs program and view their latest works.  “Each of them brought something truly special to this initiative, sharing their unique talents and becoming part of the fabric of our arts community” continued Tabing.  “We are thrilled that they utilized this opportunity to advance their careers, and we look forward to the next phase of their success.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

As part of the residency, each artist was provided with a studio, allowing them to create in a dedicated space within an inspiring atmosphere. The participants advanced their public engagement skills through featured roles during Old Town Untapped events and by teaching arts workshops. The program also provided the artists with training in marketing, branding, and intellectual property rights; necessary skills to enhance their careers.

 

 

 

During June’s event, guests will be able to explore the beautiful creations of the AiRs while enjoying the high energy cover band, Girlfriend Material, who offers a wide range of genre-crossing music that will keep the party in high-gear!

 

 

 

About the City of Pompano Beach Cultural Affairs Department:

The mission of the Cultural Affairs Department is to provide cultural programming that includes visual arts, digital media, music, film, theater, dance and public art for the enjoyment and enrichment of residents and visitors to Pompano Beach, Broward County, and the greater South Florida area. The department programs and manages the City’s premiere cultural arts venues including the Pompano Beach Cultural Center, Ali Cultural Arts Center, Bailey Contemporary Arts Center, and the Blanche Ely House Museum. The department also oversees the City’s Public Art Program and the prestigious National Endowment for the Arts’ Our Town grant awarded to the Pompano Beach Crossroads place-making arts initiative.

 

 

 

 

Bailey Contemporary Arts Center (BaCA) is operated by the City of Pompano Beach’s Cultural Affairs Department (PBCAD) which annually seeks participants for its Artists in Residence Program (AiR). As part of this program, eight studios at BaCA are available to individual artists for a nine-month period from October – June. The 2023 -2024 residency will be available for application in April 2023. Through this residency, PBCAD strives to cultivate an environment where artists can craft their talents and enhance their experience through artistic development and experimentation. The residency’s structure is therefore left relatively open to cater to individuality, spontaneity and collaboration. BaCA should be considered a safe space where all art forms, intellectual and creative pursuits, methods of artistic investigation, and aesthetic inquiry are accepted, nurtured, and celebrated. A dynamic environment will be created through the AiR Program – one that appeals to onlookers and attracts locals and visitors alike to watch the creative process unfold and see the latest output.

Mural #26 ” Sunrise Spoonbills” at 9045 Bridge Road  Hobe Sound, FL

 

 

 

 

 

This mural was painted by both the local artist, Nadia Utto of Urban Camouflage Arts Company, who spearheads the overall nonprofit Landmark Arts & its Hobe Sound Murals endeavor, along with Guest Artist, Brenda Leigh of Stuart, whose artistic specialty is exactly this kind of deft ability to transform spaces with sublime colors. Originally from Fort Lauderdale, she studied in California and spent many years in both the Virgin Islands and Hawaii honing her mural skills. Recently featured in the Stuart Magazine as an important local artist, having painted 22 public murals in that area. In addition, she is a mosaic public artist and a teaching artist, working to inspire others to find their own voice through their art. Brenda was also an artist on HSM#10 “A Taste of the Tropics” at Taste Restaurant.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

As part of the vision for historic Hobe Sound, the Community Redevelopment Agency in Hobe Sound partnered with Urban Camouflage Arts Company to refresh existing murals and create new artwork in May of 2021. To date, the project provided the restoration of six murals located in the Hobe Sound CRA and the creation of this gorgeous addition on our beautiful new Bridge Road corridor.” Building owners, Pat & Mike Keeler restored the building and wanted a replacement of HSM#5 – “Home Sweet Home” – painted in 2009 by the project and the Hobe Sound Art League Guest Artists in a trompe l’oeil style which featured a fake window with lace curtains, painted shutters, window flower boxes and ornate ironwork. Although sad to see that one go, this is an example of how change can indeed be refreshing & positive.

 

 

 

 

 

The Hobe Sound Murals Project first began transforming the town with creative murals in 2009, with the mission of “Creating an outdoor gallery of beautiful walls, honoring our past history, present vitality and future promise”. It is part of the non-profit organization – Landmark Arts, Inc., with its overview mission of “Creating Community Culture”. Now, 14 years later, 26 unique murals have been completed along Bridge Road, Dixie & Federal Highways and Banner Lake Park with the support from building owners & tenants, general public and the efforts of over 50 regional artists & 100 community members.
