Ceramics by Alex Zablocki

 

 

In a world where mobile phones are ringing, and pinging, where emails and text messages demand attention, where TVs run in the background in every nook and cranny it can be hard to imagine that quiet creative places, soothing to the soul, still exist. 

But, open the door to a working ceramics studio and tranquility billows out.  It. Is. Enchanting.  

This is the alchemy of earth, air, fire and water.  It’s the magic created by craftsmen who turn mud into high art and functional ware. 

You’re welcome to feel it yourself, visit Chad Steve, at the Lighthouse ArtCenter Gallery and School of Art, just a stone’s throw away to the northern end of Palm Beach County.  Chad runs the ceramics department where the student enrollment has doubled and doubled again in the three years he’s been teaching there.

With a …thumpthumpthump… Students from 19 to 90 settle into a gentle rhythm as they methodically wedge their clay to remove any air pockets.  Some settle at a potter’s wheel, while others are hand building and although they are working at different levels of accomplishment there is an undeniable sense of comradery in the room.

 

 

Lettuceware Teapot by Dodie Thayer

 

 

 

Of great interest to collectors is an important selection of original Lettuceware that is featured in the west gallery where a retrospective exhibition celebrates the original ceramic works of Dodie Thayer, most well known for her iconic green table ware evocative of crinkly heads of cabbage.  Lettuceware collectors read like the Who’s Who of society from around the globe.  They include the Queen of England, Jackie Kennedy Onassis  and Oprah Winfrey, to name a few.  Mrs. Marshal Field V is loaning two of her large soup tureens for the exhibition, while Mrs. Thayer’s daughter is pulling pieces from the family’s treasures which have never before been shown.  They are irreplaceable.  

 

 

 

Lettuceware platter by Dodie Thayer

 

 

If you’ve been in the area for a while then you may be aware that Dodie DuBois Thayer Hawthorn was one of the original eight artists who established the Lighthouse ArtCenter 56 years ago along with Christopher Norton.  Dodie’s ceramic tableware became synonymous with Palm Beach at a time when Palm Beach represented the epitome of culture.  Until a few years ago all of Mrs. Thayer’s lettuceware was handmade, a few short years ago she licensed Tory Burch to manufacture her iconic lettuceware.  Although the work on exhibit at the Lighthouse ArtCenter will not be available for purchase, the ware produced by Tory Burch is still available in their shop on Worth Avenue.

 

 

Douglas Basset Andrews, a noted collector and art consultant, is loaning pieces of his recently acquired contemporary ceramics by Kentaro Kawabata, and Masaomi Yasunaga.  These pieces were shipped directly from exhibition openings in Los Angeles in time for LUSH.

It’s the energy and the enthusiasm of the staff, the students, and the volunteers at the Lighthouse ArtCenter that continue to thrive in this vibrant community. While most arts non-profits are struggling, the Lighthouse ArtCenter is bursting at the seams.  The School of Art serves over 2,600 adult students and 700 children.  Faculty members provide outreach to underserved residents in the community and every month a free and accessible class for special needs adults is offered at no charge in the master studio.  “We are bursting at the seams” says Nancy Politsch, executive director, “And that explains why we are creating a capital campaign to build a second floor on the gallery. It will expand the school and increase the size of the gallery.  The distinguished architect, Scott Hughes, is working on plans that will pull the best kept secret in Tequesta out of the 1960s and into the 21st century.  His plans for the new building are clean, sleek and bright.”

When she joined the ArtCenter, three  years ago, Nancy Politsch, unpacked 38 years of experience in wealth management, along with a special brand of belt tightening that has resulted in a streamlined operation with a small and mighty staff that serves up the arts with passion seven days a week.

Janeen Mason, the curator, creates eleven exhibitions annually at the ArtCenter and installs satellite exhibitions in other venues such as the 22nd Floor Gallery of the Capitol Building in Tallahassee, or in the new offices of the Community Foundation of Martin-St.Lucie.  It’s hard to believe her exhibitions, which some say are worthy of MOMA, are tucked away in Gallery Square North in Tequesta.  Earlier this year the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum created a special exhibition called Building Frank Lloyd Wright’s Guggenheim for the ArtCenter in order to honor Peter Lawson-Johnston, the grandson of Solomon R. Guggenheim, who now serves as the honorary chairman of the board of directors for the Lighthouse ArtCenter. 

The ongoing success of the ArtCenter is directly related to generous patrons like Mrs. Lehan, who give their time, talent and resources, to insure cultural programming at this level is available to all who want to enjoy it, regardless of their ethnicity or economic standing.  This insures the heartbeat of the community, the Lighthouse ArtCenter will continue to thrive into the next 56 years.

In the last 54 years it has grown to include a gallery, school of art, gift shop, and art supply store. Supported by memberships, sponsors, and grants the ArtCenter now serves over 20,000 guests, 2,500 students, 45 faculty members, 500 summer ArtCampers and a comprehensive outreach program to benefit underserved and disabled residents in the community.

Ursula Fernandez Is Featured Artist At Perrine Community House At Palmetto Bay. Meet The Artist At The Opening Reception November 16

Meet Featured Artist, Ursula Fernandez at the Perrine Community House at Palmetto Bay on Saturday, November 16. The public is welcome to this exhibit, “The Story of Many”, showing Ursula’s vast body of work. Her art reflects her tropical roots with an influence by the art form she herself studied for many years, ballet. While she is best known for her portrait paintings in oil, she also works with acrylic, charcoal and ink. The Rickie Report shares the details and some sneak peeks.  Don’t miss the opportunity to meet this gracious and talented artist!

 

 

 

 

U R S U L A       F E R N A N D E Z

 

SOLO  EXHIBIT:

 

“THE   STORY   OF   MANY”

Opening Reception

Saturday November 16

6:30- 8:30 PM

Palmetto Bay

900 Perrine Ave

Palmetto Bay, FL

 

 

 

 

 

Ursula Fernandez shares these words from her heart about this exhibit, “My tribute and sincere gratitude goes out to my family, mentor, friend artists, teachers, designers and buyers, all those that have revolved in my world of art, whom have been a source of energy for my creations. When at work, I dive into a world of my own, where I find peace, contentment and great satisfaction”.

 

She goes on to say, “My love working with oils has been because I can express an infinite variety of mixed emotions and beauty. Every time I have picked up a brush I have learned something new and have expanded my artistic horizons. The time has come to retire from my professional life as an artist, I will not put the brush down entirely, I will be always open to sit and give to art lovers, that which I have learned in my years practicing art. I will always be happy to hear from you, if you need help, maybe advise, and why not a special order or just to say hello, Let me share with you this one of my favorite quote from unknown source: ‘Art is a fascinating and amazing vehicle of self-expression. It is a rewarding journey of learning and discovery. Art is an adventure motivated by the heart, with an understanding of the process developed through practice’”.

 


Ursula Fernandez at her easel

 

 

Ursula was born in Havana, Cuba and began sketching at the age of 15.  Her neighbor, Felix de Cossio, a recognized portrait painter, was a major influence on Ursula.  As she observed him at work, he taught her valuable tips and techniques.  She tells The Rickie Report, “This planted a deep seated love for painting”.

 

 

Artist, Ursula Fernandez

 

 

For many years, Ursula dedicated her life to her career and family, raising four children.  She never forgot her passion for painting.  In 1979, she picked up a brush and followed her heart. By 1981, she completed her first portrait!  Coming from a family of artists, she was eager to strike out on her own.

 

 

“Two Ballet Dancers” by Ursula Fernandez

 

Years later, while living in Florida, never leaving her art, she enrolled in a course taught by her long time childhood neighbor, Felix de Cossio!  He had made a successful career painting portraits of famous socialites in New York City.  Spending more time with her mentor, Ursula acquired the techniques and qualities that would serve her well throughout her own career as an artist.

 

 

“The Street Vendor” by Ursula E. Fernandez

Ursula tells us, “The subject caught my attention, a street vendor in one of the Caribbean Islands, I kept the photo to create my painting.  I was drawn to her facial expression, I knew then it would be a challenge to capture her spirit, her pleasant smile regardless that she is selling bananas under the hot sun.  Her eyes are covered by the shade of her straw hat, her rouged hands holding the wooden box.  I created a background showing the hustle and bustle of the market place.  The Street Vendor became the recipient of an Honorable Mention Award.

 

 

One can see that Ursula’s ballet and dance teaching experience enhances her appreciation for and discernment for typical details when she paints these particular subjects.  The majority of her work is inspired by her tropical roots.  Her paintings are rich in texture and color.  Her own warmth comes through each piece.

 

“The Nap” by Ursula Fernandez

 

 

While she still favors painting with oil, Ursula takes life by the hand and is eager to try new techniques and mediums.  She has great success with her portraitures and many of her florals are dedicated to endangered plants.  She is an award-winning artist and many of her pieces can be found in private collections. 

 

 

Ursula has also painted murals at several local sites. She tells us, “I love painting and teaching art, which has been my life long passion. Born from a family of artists and with the inspiration of my neighbor, whom I watched while at work, I was able to pursue this dream at a much later stage in my life. Please come in and read all about it, browse my portfolio, and if you like what you see, drop me an email, I will surely appreciate it!”

 

“Roses in a Wooden Vase” by Ursula Fernandez

Ursula offers painting classes and is available for portraits.  When one is commissioned, she likes to meet the person and also works from 3-4 photos.  She is a Signature Member of the Wellington Art Society and is happy to be painting in her own studio.

RAMEL    JASIR

 

“Sankofa” by Ramel Jasir

 

 

Ramel was born and raised in Portsmouth, Virginia and has been involved in creative art since he was very young.  His older brother introduced him to art by having him draw Batman’s ears.  This was the beginning of his evolving as an artist. He is a self taught artist who hones his skills through experimental learning, research and a passion to bring realism, authenticity and strong emotion to all his creations.  

 

“An Orange Moon” by Ramel Jasir

 

Ramel continues to evolve as an artist and is inspired by the plurality of his cultural heritage and the diverse cultural and tribal art by Native, Americans and the petroglyph art of Puerto Rico.  He uses the beauty and diversity of the people to reaffirm the commonalities that bind us as one humanity. 

 

 

“Incompredido” by Ramel Jasir

 

He creates art that is inspiring, evocative, educational and true.  Ramel tells The Rickie Report, “I like to describe my work as a voice in color that resonates various emotionally charged motifs of love, family, universal human rights and politics”.

 

 

 

 

 

The Wellington Art Society is a non-profit charitable organization in its 37th year. It is open to artists of all mediums and patrons of the arts, allowing both local and regional artists to display their art work in local galleries, interact with other artists and serve the community through their art.

Saturday, November 9th, 2-4pm, the workshop will empower you with marketing tools to tell your stories and help sell your art. This event is at the Paul Fisher Gallery. We will have light refreshments, and there is ample street parking.

 

Dede will donate a portion of the proceedings to the Center for Great Apes & Armory Art Center.
