“School Supplies for the New Generation” Installation Art by Rolando Chang Barrero

 

 

Rolando began his art career with a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the Art Institute of Chicago where he also received many honors and a coveted Ryerson Traveling Fellowship.  He is an experimental media artist, a visionary, a cultural leader and well known for his “Social Justice” art film.  He moved to Miami Beach in 1980, doing odd jobs but eventually working for Ted Lapidus in Bal Harbor, later relocating to Beverly Hills, CA working for Torie Steele on Rodeo Drive. He eventually moved back to Miami Beach, working with lifelong mentors and opening an art studio.  On the move again he went to Chicago working in the Pilsen Art District doing internships at numerous galleries.

 

Thanks to the Ryerson Fellowship, Rolando was able to visit Cuba with fellow Cuban artists in 1990.  His experience there opened his eyes to exploring the rich art and unique cultures of other countries.  When his money ran out he returned to South Beach and set up an art studio once again.  He began curating exhibitions as Interim Galleries Director for Miami-Dade College system.  Soon he was able to travel and continue exploring cultures and art in Europe, Asia and South America.  

 

 

 

 

 

 

Rolando underwent treatment for brain cancer for many dark years until he was finally able to return to work just before he moved to Palm Beach County in 2010.  He has established himself as a cultural art leader, founding the Boynton Beach Arts District, co-founder of Art Synergy, the Florida Arts Association, host and founder of Hola Palm Beach the first bilingual art and culture television show in the area. He is the recipient of the Congressional Letter of Commendation and Proclamation for Cultural Leadership.  He serves as curator of The Box Gallery and Compass having received the Best Gallery of 2018 award from the South Florida Gay News.  In the past he has served as Curator/Director of several galleries and currently curates at the Box Gallery in West Palm Beach.  Rolando was recently named as a MUSE Award recipient from the Cultural Council Of Palm Beach County, a prestigious recognition.

Oil Painting by Walter O’Neill

 

 

 

Paint in a vertical format in this workshop by hanging your canvas on the wall. This ensures that you use your entire body in the process of painting instead of only using your hand and wrist. Working on large canvases with big brushes, students explore composition, mark making, personal symbols, and layering. Re-energize your painting by being completely intuitive and spontaneous.  Whether your style is loud and energizing or calm and relaxed, learn to trust your own artistic urges while taking risks to create powerful art. This 2-day atelier is for expanding your reach, experimenting, and discovering. (45 minute lunch break)

"Green Bowl" by Marilyn Wander

“Green Bowl” by Marilyn Wander

 

 

Marilyn Wander

Marilyn Wander has been a potter since 1977. She specializes in stoneware and porcelain clay, and is known for her exquisite and unique glazes, which she shares with her students. It is unusual and important to note that Marilyn not only develops her only specialty glazes – – She also shares them with her students!  Marilyn took up pottery after noticing that she gravitated to the pottery exhibits at art shows (she is married to well-known Palm Beach watercolorist Gustav Wander). Very tactile, she fell in love with clay.

 

Unique Glazes are Marilyn Wander's signature

Unique Glazes are Marilyn Wander’s signature

Marilyn’s students remark on her accessibility and skill as a teacher:
“When I began working with Marilyn, I did not know how to handle clay effectively. Now after 5 years, I was invited to exhibit my work at the local public library. Marilyn is a skillful teacher who inspires her students to reach beyond their limits. Through her patient coaching, she has enabled many of her students to get in touch with their creative side.”—Frances Levine

She is affiliated with the FAU Potters Guild and the NJ Designer Craftsmen. She has exhibited at Las Olas Art Festival, University of Miami—Beaux Arts, Norton Gallery, Deerfield Beach Art and Craft Show, Vero Beach Art and Craft Show, Virginia Beach Art Festival, Garrison NY Art Festival, Bergen Museum—NJ Designers Craftsmen Show, and held a one-woman show with interior designer Pajia Wald in Tenafly, NJ.

New Sculpture at Abby Funk Studio

Sculpted Pottery byAbbey Funk 

 

 

 

 

 

Abbey describes her approach to her art: “I am a Conceptual artist. I create with purpose and for a reason. Through my chosen mediums of Clay and Metal, I express emotions and ideas. I create tangible stories that are always ready to be shared, infinitely patient in their completion. I create environments. I show Truth. I intend for the viewer to question.  As an artist, I seek constant growth and expansion. I love the unknown. Experimentation is my answer for everything. There is beauty in creative failure and ‘mistakes’. Success is never giving up.”

This is a wonderful opportunity for me to share my experiences, engage with first-time students and returning potters, and explore our creativity together. I’m sure we will all grow and increase our skills as we inspire each other.”

“Inspired By Soldner” by Abbey Funk

 

 

To create this collection of ceramic art, Abbey and Barbara merged into a dynamic duo, bringing distinctly different skill sets to the table.

 

BarbPowellRaku

Raku Fired Vessel by Barbara Powell

 

 

Working together from start to finish, Abbey and Barbara created a comprehensive and explosive collection of 3 dimensional fine art. Abbey  has turned the use of the potter’s wheel into the art of making extraordinary wheel sculptures that defy height and balance. Emerging from them are unworldly critters that can withstand the shock of the Raku flame.

 

AbbeyFunk3

“Untitled #3” by Abbey Funk

 

 

Every sculpture and vessel in the exhibition was finished with an atmospheric or alternative firing process. In this way, smoke and fire are truly the inspiration for this show.

Raise a glass to our clay-making ancestors who invented these techniques ages ago, and join the artists of Clay Glass Metal Stone Gallery for the Opening Reception on January 8th, 2016.

Along with her latest creations, Barbara will be bringing many of the tools used to make them. Her works are beautifully decorative and affordable. Her knowledge of Raku and Saggar firing is extensive. This is your opportunity to acquire an appreciation for these ancient firing techniques, and to sign up for workshops to “Do It Yourself.”

Abbey Funk tells The Rickie Report, “I am a Conceptual artist. I create with purpose and for a reason. Through my chosen mediums of Clay and Metal, I express emotions and ideas. I create tangible stories that are always ready to be shared, infinitely patient in their completion. I create environments. I show Truth. I intend for the viewer to Question. As an artist, I seek constant growth and expansion. I push myself. I love the unknown. Experimentation is my answer for everything. There is beauty in creative failure and ‘mistakes’. Success is never giving up”.

“Let yourself be silently drawn by the strange pull of what you really love. It will not lead you astray.”- Rumi

 

Abbey Funk was born in Wellesley, MA in 1979. She completed a BFA in Studio Art at Florida Atlantic University in 2005, and moved to Brooklyn, NY after graduation. She worked in Manhattan as a Graphic Artist until 2010, and then returned to South Florida to focus on creating Fine Art. Working predominantly in clay, she also creates sculptures made of metal, gemstones, and found objects.

 

She became Adjunct Faculty at Palm Beach State College in 2011 and quickly turned into a sought-after pottery teacher in local ceramics studios. In 2012, she opened A. Funk Studio in Delray Beach, FL as a founding member of the art colony Artists Alley. Funk began working in metal in 2014. Her artwork is well-known throughout South Florida, and she has shown in venues in West Palm Beach, Lake Worth, Delray Beach, Boca Raton, Fort Lauderdale, and Hollywood, FL.

 

 

Both artists create at the Flamingo Clay Studio. The Studio is located at 216 South F Street with studio opportunities and workspace for 3-D Artists. For information call Joyce Brown-215-205-9441 or visit:
