“Bougainvillea”  by Sally Cooper

 

 

 

Sally Cooper tells The Rickie Report, “My artistic journey began at a young age.  At that time I was only interested in capturing an image or photo likeness.  A big change occurred in my work in 1980 when I was introduced to painting non-objectively in a Creative Watercolor workshop taught by Miles Batt.  A whole world opened and I was hooked.  I began to experiment in non-traditional ways with acrylics, gesso and various polymer mediums. I also became extremely interested in Asian calligraphy and sought out different books on the subject.  The powerful flying brush strokes, the splashes of fresh ink/paint and the spontaneous fluid movement have been influential and I began to incorporate my own personal calligraphy and mark-making into my paintings”.

 

 

 

“Edgewater” by Sally Cooper

 

 

It has been almost 40 years since taking that Creative Watercolor Workshop and Sally’s work today is about a creative process rather than a specific image or place.  She works intuitively and enjoys the direct experience of the art-making —the process, the spontaneity and surprise elements of painting.

 

 

“Zen Garden”  by Sally Cooper

 

 

Sally explains, “Starting with a primed large unstretched canvas or sometimes  stretched canvas I build my abstracts layer by layer.  I start by placing triadic colors (three hues, equally spaced on the color wheel), plus raw umber, white and black for tinting and shading the colors — mix a few together, grab a brush and then follow intuitive promptings and apply a big gestural linear mark or brushstroke that comes from deep within.  These intuitive promptings are like a dance.  I quickly move back and forth applying marks, keeping some, veiling over others, stepping back every so often, studying, looking, moving, deciding which marks to keep and which marks to take away.  This play or process continues until a painting evolves”.

 

 

 

“Daybreak” by Sally Cooper

 

 

 

Sally’s painting Everglades 2 was selected as one of 350 out of over 1,000 applicants for publication in Studio Visit Volumes 47 and 48 which will be out in the Summer, 2020. This is a magazine of contemporary artwork.  Sally took First Place in 2017 in The Artist’s Magazine’s National competition for Conversation in Blue which was published in the March 2018 issue.  In 2017 her work was included in the publication Art Journey Abstract Painting, A Celebration of Contemporary Art.  In 2015 Sally’s painting Blue Horizon was chosen for the cover of The Artist’s Magazine along with a feature article and her work has been featured in Acrylic Artist, Professional Artist and The Artist’s Magazine.  Sally is a Signature Member of the National Watercolor Society and a member of Chroma Paints Independent Teaching Program for their Atelier Interactive acrylic paints and mediums.  

 

 

 

 

Sally teaches Discovering Abstract Painting and a unique Expressive Abstract – Large Scale Painting Workshop (this workshop takes place in a 1925 Vintage Gymnasium which plenty of space to paint) at Old School Square Creative Arts School in Delray Beach.  For more information on these classes and workshops go to www.oldschoolsquare.org.

A new musical, Miriam and the Women of the Desert, composed by Sheila Firestone will premiere on February 24 at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Delray Beach, FL. This fascinating Biblical story of Miriam and the women who surrounded her is told in a staged concert with a cast of talented singers. The story’s relevance references today’s  women’s movement for equality.  Sheila is an accomplished composer whose works have been played world wide.  The premiere in Delray Beach will be followed by performances at the Empire Stage Theater in Ft. Lauderdale from March 28 – April 7.   Sheila incorporates music, original visual arts, and the performing arts in her staging.  The Rickie Report shares the details and some sneak peeks.

Sheila Firestone tells The Rickie Report, “Sitting on the hilltop near Carmiel, in a small community in northern Israel, I hear the chanting of Arab evening prayers around me.  While visiting my family and firstborn grandchild, I am inspired by the beauty of the hills, the calls to prayer, the light, and the voices singing in my head.  Yearly visits to the land of Israel bring new insights and visions. I did not know then that a musical work was growing and that it would take over twenty-two years to complete.”

“After the Storm”© by Bonita Tabakin

Music Director, David Presler, says, ” Florida audiences will be the first to see and enjoy Miriam and the Women of the Desert. It tells the story of the Hebrews’ exodus from Egypt through the eyes of Miriam the prophetess, sister of Moses and Aaron. The work takes audiences on a musical journey, exploring family relationships, aspects of love and generational heritage.  The production has a cast of seven professionally trained singers”. Costumes recreate Biblical garb, and the original art pieces of the scenic design, created by artist Bonita Tabakin, depict the mood of the desert. 

 

 

 
“The Birthing Tent”© By Bonita Tabakin

Miriam’s story of her journey through the desert, surrounded by other Biblical women – Zipporah, Yocheved and the midwives – is drawn from texts of the Torah and Midrash. “This musical is the realization of a vision started in Israel that spans many years of musical study and interest in religion, particularly regarding the role of Biblical women and their family relationships,” says Sheila Firestone.

 

Bonita Tabakin’s art is the backdrop during various scenes of this production.  She depicts woman’s struggles (stories) from The Bible and the 12 books of The Kabballah.  Her work draws  the audience into deeper connections with the singers.  Bonita’s passion has always been “G_d’s set design”. Bonita has been juried into 17 International Biennale art exhibits to represent the US with 59 other countries.  She has been awarded Best in Show by 3 international curators. Ms. Tabakin earned her MBA, MFA, and AA (design and biochemistry).

“Roses” by Patricia Schwimmer

 

 

 

 

Patricia is a Toronto native, and her childhood vacations were always spent at the beach. A recent move to Palm Beach Gardens, FL fulfilled her desire to live and work near the water. The natural beauty of the ocean and its surroundings have had a major impact on Schwimmer’s color palette and expressive brushwork.

 

 

 

 

 

Patricia Schwimmer’s painting highlighted in an article in Palm Beach Coastal Style Magazine. Chosen by 55 Design Street, Australian blogger

 

 

 

 

 

 

Patricia Schwimmer tells The Rickie Report, “I began my journey into abstraction a few years ago, after painting realism for many years. My work is very much about process. and somehow I am not satisfied unless the work has a history of layers. I am aware that it is the spontaneous and accidental marks that are the most exciting, whether they lend themselves to furthering the composition or create tension in the work. I long for a little disturbance in the overall calm of the composition…an area where the eye wanders that may not go with the rest of the painting and begs me to wonder why”.

 

 

 

 

Small work by Patricia Schwimmer

 

 

 

 

 

She understands that it is important that the piece be visually appealing as well as interesting enough to linger over, taking cues from her internal experience to sense when a painting is complete. She says, “Lately, with all the noise in the World, I am enjoying quiet shifts and soft colors in a painting; getting transported by nuances and the grace of being present to what comes. Painting has become a metaphor for living because if I am only willing to scratch the surface and do what is easy, the work will reflect that. An openness to tap into the deep waters of my creative stream will yield something much richer and way more interesting”.

 

 

“Lazy Circles in the Sky” by Patricia Schwimmer

 

 

 

 

 

 

Patricia Schwimmer has lead workshops in creative painting at various venues including The Georgian Bay School of Arts and the Chautauqua Institute. The natural beauty of the ocean and its surroundings have had a major impact on her color palette and expressive brushwork. Her work has been featured in numerous publications worldwide including Michelle Cassou and Stewart Cubley’s book “Life, Paint, and Passion.” She was featured at Art Palm Beach International, the 2016 Designers’ Show House in WPB, and in Nantucket Island through JF Art Gallery. Patricia is a featured artist at The MAE Gallery in Delray Beach, FL.

Artistically Speaking

One gallery will be dedicated to Artistically Speaking, a major exhibition project being produced by Florida Atlantic University’s Jupiter Library Gallery. This is a travelling show, with the first stop at the Cornell Museum, with larger versions of the show being exhibited in two locations in Miami during 2016-2017, respectively.

 

 

 

The project was initiated by visual artists Diane Arrieta (the art and science outreach coordinator for FAU libraries) and Jacqueline Kern (Adjunct art faculty at Palm Beach State College) who wish to explore the following:

1) How psychological and emotional phenomena can influence the outcome of production, self-promotion, and self-reflection of women artists.
2) How women artists perceive their connections to the world.
3) How the study of women artists as a profession can influence or compare to the study of other professions.
4) The understanding of women artists and their identities: how their creative processes in the contemporary art and technological world enhance their value as artists and their place in the world.

Select women artists from all levels and disciplines were hand-picked to have a conversation on film about their own personal journey as a creative and what struggles and triumphs they have encountered along their paths of living as a creative.  Each artist will also be exhibiting their artwork. Participating artists include T J Ahearn, Francie Bishop Good, Carol Jazzar, Alette Simmons-Jimenez, Leah Brown, Tina La Porta, Raheleh Filsoofi, Giannina Coppiano Dwin, Diane Arrieta (aka Birds are Nice), Jacqueline Kern, Dana Donaty, Adrienne Rose Gionta and Sibel Kocabasi.

About the eXXpectations artists:

 

 

TRACEY ADAMS As a musician and a conductor who received her Master’s degree from the New England Conservatory of Music, the work that Tracey Adams creates is inspired by her experiences with music.  Adams was drawn to both art and music since the age of three, and these creative inclinations were supported by her parents, themselves art lovers.  While studying for her Master’s, Adams was also studying painting at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston.  Adams quotes jazz musician Charlie Haden on her online statement page: “The artist’s job is to bring beauty into a conflicted world.”  Her work reflects this quote accurately; her works expresses a form of serenity, and strives to show an internal calm, an environment that she wants to externalize.  Adams has had solo shows at the Monterey Museum of Art, the Fresno Museum of Art, and the Santa Cruz Museum of Art and History.  She exhibited at the Andy Warhol Museum in Medzilaborce, Slovak Republic in 2003.  She was also recently awarded a 2015 Pollock-Krasner Foundation Grant.  Her work is included in collections at the Bakersfield Art Museum, the Crocker Museum, the Hunterdon Art Museum, the Monterey Museum of Art, the Fresno Art Museum, the Tucson Art Museum, and the Santa Barbara Museum of Art.

 

 

 

 

HELEN BAYLY has said that her creative process starts with a concept or a question, and then the visual aspects stem from various thoughts and ideas based on her environment, depending on anything ranging from her conversations to how much sleep she is getting. She wants her work to have meaning not only for herself, but also for her audience.  Bayly studied painting at the San Francisco Art Institute from 2001-2004.  She has been included in several exhibitions, including Flower Pepper Gallery, La Luz de Jesus Gallery, art works downtown, and Project One.

MADELINE DENARO describes herself as a process artist: Her art is secondary to the process, as that is what the work evolves from. Her creations are sensory, requiring the audience to feel and not necessarily to interpret. Denaro is from the Bronx and currently resides and works in Fort Lauderdale. She studied at the South Florida Art Institute, and she travelled extensively through Europe.  She was particularly inspired by art in Germany, one of her main influences being German artist Joseph Beuys.  She has exhibited her work in New York, Atlanta, Germany, and throughout South Florida.

 

 

 

HOLLY FARRELL is a self-taught artist who has been painting professionally since 1995.  Her work is influenced by her experiences of growing up in northern Ontario and of small town life.  Farrell says that her work is driven by nostalgia, showing the connections we all have to the subjects in her paintings. Farrell has exhibited in Canada, the USA, and Japan.  Her paintings are in collections both private and corporate throughout North America, Europe, and Japan.

 

 

 

 

HAYLEY GABVERLAGE’S three word description of her art reads: “Contemporary.  Humorous.  Slightly Southern.” Originally from Alabama, Gabverlage attended SCAD in Savannah, and she currently resides and works in New Orleans. Her work is inspired by the people, neighborhoods, and experiences in New Orleans.  Gabverlage contemporizes the outdated. She has a distinct color palette, and gravitates towards turquoise blues, mint greens, and muted tones. Her work is inspiring, and possesses a whimsical spirit.

 

 

 

 

 

 
ISABELLE GARBANI’S current work, “Love and Death: Archiving the 21st Century”, takes the digital communications from emails and social media sites and seeks to chronicle them in a tangible form.  The lace technique she uses to thread together Facebook posts, Tweets, and texts is reminiscent of a computer using complex operations to lace together the same information. The lace she uses is recycled plastic shopping bags, as she feels that plastic is the material that best represents our culture.  Originally from France, Garbani came to the USA as a young woman ready to realize her artistic passion.  She received her MFA in sculpture from the New York Academy of Art in 2004. She currently resides in Brooklyn.

JAMIE KIRKLAND is a prominent abstract landscape artist, who lives and works in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Her work creates a calm, meditative, reflective mood. The color palettes she uses have been known to be described as “quiet” and “harmonious.” Though she now resides in Santa Fe, she once lived in Crestone, Colorado, which is one of the quietest places on earth. Kirkland strives to channel the memory of this calm and quiet place into her work.  Kirkland’s paintings have been shown by several prominent arts organizations, including the Utah Arts Council; the Museum of Fine Arts in Santa Fe; and the Pensacola Museum of Fine Art. In 2007, she was invited to become a member of the National Association of Women Artists, which was founded in 1889 and is the oldest professional women’s fine art organization in the US. Her work hangs in many prominent public, corporate, and private collections throughout the United States.

 

 

 

 

MIRA LEHR uses nontraditional media for her nature-based imagery, such as resin, gunpowder, fire, Japanese paper, and more. As a young female artist in the ‘50s and ‘60s, Lehr was at the forefront of abstract expressionism and also helped mobilize the female voice in cities such as Miami, where she co-founded the first women’s co-op in the southeast. A New York native, Lehr serves as mentor and collaborator to young artists. She teaches master classes with the National Young Arts Foundation, and she has been the artist in residence at the Bascom Summer Programs.  Lehr’s solo and group exhibitions number over 300. These include the Bass Museum of Art, the Miami Art Museum, the New Museum, the Smithsonian Museum of American Art, and American Embassies around the world.

 

 

 

 

ASHLEY LONGSHORE has said that her art is representative of the world as she sees it, and she has been recognized as “a modern Andy Warhol.”  Her art focuses on American consumerism, pop culture, and Hollywood glamour. Longshore’s work often takes a satirical approach, using fashion icons as the means to make a statement. Her client base includes Blake Lively, Salma Hayek, and Penelope Cruz. Her gallery, Longshore Studio Gallery, is located on Magazine Street in New Orleans. She has exhibited in the US and Europe, and has been featured in such magazines as Elle, Forbes, Vogue, Marie Claire Belgium, Elle Décor Belgium, Vie Magazine, SPUR, Hollywood Reporter, and Matchbook Magazine.

CHERYL MAEDER uses her camera “as an instrument to convey the world through painterly eyes.”  Through her photography, she shows that what is clear and in focus is actually only one’s perception.  Her study of photography began while she was living in Switzerland, and upon her return to the US, she opened a studio in San Francisco.  Maeder has worked as a national fine art and advertising photographer, and she has shot campaigns for a number of clients, including Sony, AT&T, Visa, Calvin Klein, and Marriott Hotels.  Her work inspired the Dove Campaign on Real Women, Real Beauty, which has been shown worldwide.

 

 

 

 

 
KAREN MAINENTI says that her art “wrestles with the definition of femininity, unrealized dreams, and impossible ideals – both childish and adult.” Her Color Me Beautiful series is no exception: From cheeky oil paintings that express sentiments such as “Gentlemen Prefer Pink” to graphite drawings of certain beauty products showing the sad yet humorous absurdities involved in marketing, Mainenti’s art has a real sense of humor that struggles with feminine identity.  Mainenti has been included in numerous group exhibitions throughout New York City, as well as solo exhibitions.  For 10 years she was the Creative Director at Martha Stewart Living, and she currently is the Creative Director for Alene Candles in New York City.

 

 

 

 

 

JANE MANUS is an internationally renowned sculptor, who characterizes herself as a Constructivist-turned-Minimalist. Creating abstract sculptures, Manus decided early in her career to work exclusively with aluminum.  In her works, she explores symmetry, balance, and form through carefully positioned geometric shapes, often squares and rectangles, and linear forms. At once industrial and organic, the hard angles and highly finished surfaces of her pieces are softened by references to the human body and nature.  Manus has been exhibited in both group and solo shows around the US, and her work resides in numerous public collections across the US as well.

 

 

 

 

JANE MAXWELL is a mixed media artist from Boston, Massachusetts. Her work focuses largely on women, body image, and the feminine ideal.  Maxwell has a passion for vintage materials, modern fashion, and design, as well as a fascination of pop culture and female icons. She creates deeply layered collages, with female figures surrounded by choice images and words that harbor themes of perfection and feminine beauty. Maxwell’s work has been exhibited in New York City, San Francisco, Napa Valley, Newport, RI, London, and at Miami Art Fairs.  Her work has been collected by buyers worldwide. She has been a guest lecturer on the topic of body image and art at Wellesley College, Stonehill College, and the New England Art Institute.

MARILYN MINTER is a painter and photographer whose hyperrealistic paintings and richly-colored photographs feature uncomfortably close-up views of the human body, covered in beads, glitter, or pearls.  Her work examines the concepts of “glamour” and “beauty”, with many of these bordering a pornographic edge. Her work is sexy, intriguing, and erotic, and seemingly asks the audience to challenge societal definitions of beauty and femininity.  Minter’s work has been exhibited all around the world, including at the Whitney Biennial, Art Basel, and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.  Her video “Green Pink Caviar” was exhibited in the lobby of MoMa for a year, and excerpts were used by Madonna in her opening performance on the Sticky & Sweet tour. Minter currently lives and works in New York City.

 

 

 

 

EKATERINA PANIKANOVA transforms vintage books into provoking works of art, by painting meticulously beautiful watercolors directly onto the pages of these antiquated volumes. Viewers become transfixed by these works of art.  Ekaterina studied at the School of the Art of the State Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg. Her works has been exhibited in the Russian Union of Artists, at the Academy of Fine Arts, in St. Petersburg and Moscow.  She was born in St. Petersburg, Russia in 1975. She currently lives and works in Rome.

 

 

 

 

MARGARET ROLEKE boldly states “I create politically aware work.” This statement speaks to her creations; with the use of children’s toys, Roleke creates pieces that include themes of consumerism, gender, and war. Using toy soldiers, Barbie Dolls, and other various children’s toys, Roleke’s work comments on the disorder of the world, and questions what belongs to girls, as opposed to what belongs to boys.  Roleke’s work has been exhibited throughout the US in group and solo exhibits. Her travels in Europe, Asia, Central America, and South America have influenced her practice, as well as her three year stay in London.

”Letting Go,” flashe & acrylic with cold wax, Brenda Zappitell

PERI SCHWARTZ creates self-portraits, still life images and studio interiors that focus on composition, color, light and space. Schwartz prefers to work directly from life, and the objects in her studio, as well as the studio itself, become the subjects of her works. She uses painting, drawing, and monotype prints, and has said that each time she returns to one, she feels as though she is rediscovering it.  Schwartz has said that she strives for balance between representation and abstraction in her work.  In order to do so, she uses a grid technique, which she learned in the basics of composition. Her grids extend beyond the canvas or paper and onto the walls, tables, and books in her studio, thus turning the space into a real-life grid with intervals on the walls and in the painting. Schwartz studied at Boston University’s School of Fine Arts and received her MFA at Queen’s College.  Her work is collected in both the US and Europe.  She currently lives and works in New Rochelle, NY.

 

 

 

 

 

BRENDA ZAPPITELL is an abstract artist who states that she “creates abstract expressionist works not only born out of intuition but also serendipitously influenced by nature and life experiences.” A mostly self-taught artist, Zappitell didn’t realize that she wanted to create until she was 25. After spending time in an art gallery in Mexico in 1990, she realized her passion and was inspired to create. Zappitell’s work is inspired by life and by nature. The choices she makes artistically come to her naturally, and it isn’t until a work is finished that she reflects upon where these choices came from.  In this way, much of her art is in the discovery of the work, with the creation of her intention coming during the process, not before. Thus, her work is intuitive.  Zappitell’s work is in both private and public collections, including the Boca Museum of Art and St. Regis Hotel, NYC. She currently lives and has her studio in Delray Beach, Florida.

 

 

 

This project is sponsored in part by the City of Delray Beach, the Delray Beach Community Redevelopment Agency, the Palm Beach County Tourist Development Council and the State of Florida through the Florida Department of State, Division of Cultural Affairs, and the Florida Council on Arts and Culture.

Brigitte Balbinot tells us, ” When I create, it is my way to communicate with the world. With each painting, there is a special dialogue that is intimate. I aim to provoke an emotional reaction in the viewer. Sometimes it is in the form of a question; sometimes it is simply a feeling or a mood that comes about. Regardless of its interpretation, I strive to inspire”.

“Bamboo II” by Brigitte Balbinot

 

 

“I favor abstract painting and use a minimalistic approach in my work. To me simplicity is about bringing order to complexity. When the work is streamlined, it enables the mind to expand. Only then can imagination happen. I love depth and textures, they remind me of what once was”.

 

"Wasabi" by Brigitte Balbinot

“Wasabi” by Brigitte Balbinot

 

 

“The philosophy Wabi-Sabi from the Zen Buddhist culture that is centered on the acceptance of transience and imperfection plays a definite role in my creative process. My paintings sometimes appear to be “scarred” and “worn”, survivors of a long journey having a story to tell… Working with oil paint, pigments and various mediums allow me to create a work that is rich in substance and interesting to look at. I prefer to work large as it creates a stronger focal point that captures the viewer’s attention”.

 

 

"Japan" by Brigitte Balbinot

“Japan” by Brigitte Balbinot

 

 

Brigitte Balbinot, Artist, was born in Lausanne, Switzerland.  Over the years, she  traveled extensively throughout Europe, Asia and Africa. These experiences have contributed to define her as an Artist.  In 1988, a visit in Paris was a turning point. At the Pompidou Museum, the discovery of Salvador Dali’s work “The Persistence of Memory”, in which melting watches rest in an eerily calm landscape inspired her to create art that  convey self-reflection, emotional response and inspiration.

 

"Windmill" by Brigitte Balbinot

Windmill” by Brigitte Balbinot

 

“My work  is about feelings and emotions”  she says. The use of textures, juxtaposition of numerous layers of paint and special pigments  contribute to add depth and light to her paintings which are meant to be interesting, complex and simple all at the same time.

 

 

"Lost Civilization" by Brigitte Balbinot

“Lost Civilization” by Brigitte Balbinot

 

 

Brigitte’s work is part of  private collections and commercial collections in North America and Europe.  The Artist divides her time between her two studios located in South Florida and the province of Quebec. Her paintings have garnered awards and accolades wherever she has exhibited.

Swiss by birth, Brigitte Balbinot is now based in South Florida and travels regularly to the Province of Quebec where she also maintains an art studio. Her work, simple and complex all at the same time, reflects a minimalist approach. Each piece of artwork comprises 30-40 layers of oil paint.

In a review by Carrie Turner, editor of Fine Art Views (March, 2013), art critic Brian Sherwin is cited, “The compositional structure and use of raw texture in Balbinot’s paintings allow the imagination of the viewer to decipher meaning based on what he or she brings, psychologically speaking, to the viewing experience”.

Downtown Lake Worth, long known for its charming eccentricities in art deco architecture, culture and people has opened its arms to a rebirth of some of the finest visual arts, experimental music forms, dance and theater groups. This is reflected in the many locally-owned boutiques, art galleries, vintage shops, and specialty and jewelry stores. Flamingo Clay StudioLake Worth Art League Gallery Art Link International, Clay Glass Metal Stone Cooperative Gallery, Bruce Webber Galleries, Maryanne Webber Galleries, Margot Stein Gallery, Artefact Pardo Gallery, McMow Art Glass, Art Gallery Designs, Shoe String Designs, Local Smoking Domain,  and Artisans on the Ave. are just a few of the participating galleries.
