Neil Capozzi tells The Rickie Report, “As you know, the arts are an important part of this community and I strive to be active member in providing a quality experience in art materials, art education and community involvement.  I’m offering another opportunity for artists to showcase their talents this year. The Arts Council is having a milestone anniversary in 2020. We will be celebrating 40 years of supporting the arts in Martin County. We will be kicking off the year long celebration with a gala. The theme of the gala is “Carnevale di mARTin – A Masquerade”. The gala is Saturday, February 1st 2020.  I am asking all artists to participate in this event by painting a Venetian Mask and I will be collecting them and donating them to the Arts Council. Our goal is to sell them to the attendees of the gala. Blank masks are available from Stuart Art Supply for you to explore your creativity”.

 

 

 

 

Our 1st Masks have been completed.

 

 

 

Neil explains, “The mask painting project has been well received and I have over 40 out being painted at the moment. Since I need the masks back by October 1 there is still an opportunity for our “snowbirds” to participate. You just need to send them back by October 1st. The sooner I get them back the sooner we can begin promoting the 2020 Gala.  The masks can represent the style of the artist or the traditional venetian festival. It’s up to you, the artist”. 

 

 

 

 

Stuart Art Supply has several blanks to choose from. Neil will be ordering more as we gather the masks for this event in February 2020

 

 

 

 

Venetian Mask History:  The graceful, rounded half-mask of the Colombina mask express the enchanting femininity the Commedia dell’Arte figure of the same name radiates when she steps across the stage. Colombina means “little dove,” but with their sweeping form, splendid colors, and elaborate ornament, our Colombina masks can help you become a “bird of paradise!”

 

 

 

 

 

Venetian masks have a long history of protecting their wearer’s identity. Made for centuries in Venice, these distinctive masks were made out of papier-mache and wildly decorated with fur, fabrics, gem and feathers. Eventually, Venetian masks emerged as the emblem of Carnevale a pageant and street fair celebrating hedonism. Additionally, the masks served an important social purpose of keeping every citizen on an equal playing field. Masked, a servant could be mistaken for a nobleman—or vice versa. State inquisitors and spies could question citizens without fear of their true identity being discovered and citizens could answer without fear of retribution. The morale of the people was maintained through the use of masks—for with no faces, everyone had voices.

 

 

Mask wearing became forbidden in 1797, so the venetian masks, along with the carnival masks and masquerade ball masks vanished completely. This continued until the early ’80s, when a group of venetian architecture students began to revive this ancient and long tradition. Since then, the carnival of Venice has turned to be again one of the most important and most beautiful in the world.

Neil Capozzi tells The Rickie Report, “My personal and business mission is to provide local artists with a great selection of quality art supplies at value pricing”.  Neil is a major supporter of the local art scene, by bringing special events into the store and art studio.  He is heavily involved as a volunteer with local arts agencies and organizations.  In addition, Neil provides affordable space for instructors to hold classes and workshops. He passes on his expertise by providing affordable art education to adults.

 

 

 

 

Recently, Neil announced that he would be making changes in his artists’ brush mix eliminating Escoda, stocking Da Vinci and expanding Silver Brush. He says, “I”m happy to share that the Da Vinci Brushes have arrived to rave reviews from artists and instructors alike.  For you fine art painters, I added the short handled red sable brushes from Silver Brush (excellent for all media). These brushes join the long handled versions favored by detail painters. I’ve also added the Silver Silk 88, a semi stiff synthetic bristle for water media painters including water soluble oil paints”.

With so many different types and brands of brushes, Neil offers all of the details at the store and on the website.

 

 

Check out this video of Dee Silver, as she discusses the proper treatment of artist brushes:

https://youtu.be/GCIv2hTTGu0

 

An Overview of Brushes:

 

 

The Art Sherpa® red handle — made by Silver Brush in partnership with Cinnamon Cooney, The Art Sherpa®. These beauties feature excellent quality stiff white filaments that were specifically designed for use in all acrylic paints, including heavy bodied. Sherpa brushes provide paint and tip control unique to the series. Now you can scrub, scumble and push paint around on your surface without fear of damaging the brush! 

 

 

 

Silverstone™ brushes are of the finest quality interlocking Chungking white hog bristle. They have perfectly balanced and shaped handles for ultimate comfort and control while a nickeled brass ferrule protects the brush from damage, splitting and wear. 

 

 

​Cambridge™ series brushes have a unique blend of selected natural bristle and multi-diameter synthetic filaments with a resilient interlocked construction and deep natural chiseled tips. A seamless nickel-plated brass ferrule and carefully balanced handle make the Cambridge series a joy to work with, even on rough surfaces. These exceptionally durable brushes work well in heavy bodied acrylics, water-mixable oils, and traditional oil colors. 

 

The Atelier™ Mottler brushes feature a blend of badger and synthetic bristles and they are perfect for blending or softening edges. The extra long handle provides reach for work on a large canvas and a rust proof copper ferrule protects the brush.

 

Bristlon® is a superior stiff white synthetic brush that has been specially processed so it can be used with harsh solvents without compromising the texture or the fibers. These brushes offer excellent color control and strong resiliency on rough surfaces as a result of their interlocked construction and finely chiseled tips. It doesn’t matter if you are working with oils, acrylics, or watercolors, they will maintain their form and provide a smooth application of color. 

 

 

Black Pearl™ brushes are made with Mightlon™ synthetic filaments that can withstand rigorous treatment with heavy bodied and tube acrylics. These are great value brushes for not only acrylics but oils and water mixable oils as well. Ideal for canvas, large murals and plein air painting. 

 

 

Black Velvet® — distinctive black lacquer handled brushes with a signature silver band are a water-based artist’s dream! The Black Velvet® series is made with a blend of natural squirrel hair and black synthetics that allows the brush to hold a huge amount of color and release it with perfect control for watercolors, gouache, liquid acrylics, inks and dyes. The bristles are simultaneously soft enough to allow multiple-layer glazing without disturbing previous colors, yet firm enough to lift color with a gentle scrub. 

 

 

Silver Silk 88™ is the best quality synthetic brush on the market for use in fluid acrylics, interference acrylics, gouache, watercolors and more. These beauties have great absorbency, exceptional holding capacity, wonderful color control and excellent wear resistance. Make your mark with Silver Silk 88™! 

 

 

Grand Prix® brushes are of outstanding quality. Perfectly balanced and shaped, they feature interlocked 100% Chungking white hog bristles for maximum color carrying capacity and corrosion-resistant double crimped pure copper ferrules with an epoxy seal for added protection.   The Renaissance® brushes are a top quality kolinsky-class pure red sable brushes with a natural spring and generous color-holding capacity. Renaissance brushes keep a fine point or sharp chisel edge.

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

Abbey Funk
http://www.abbeyfunk.com/

A native of Wellesley, Mass., Abbey 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, when she returned to South Florida to focus on studio art. Working predominantly in clay, she also creates sculptures made of metal and found objects.
Abbey joined the Palm Beach State College adjunct faculty 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, Fla., as a founding member of the flourishing art colony Artists Alley. She 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.

 

 

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.”

Abbey looks forward to welcoming new and returning students to the Levis JCC Pottery Studio, “I am excited and honored to be joining the teaching staff at the studio. 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.”

Oh, The Creations!

 

CH: What is Resource Depot and how was it started?

Resource Depot is a nonprofit creative reuse center that has been serving the Palm Beach County community for more than 16 years. In 1999, several influential partners and collaborators in the community joined together to form Resource Depot. Some of those organizations are still involved today; Children’s Services Council, Solid Waste Authority, United Way of Palm Beach County, the School District of PBC, Florida Power and Light and SunFest.

 

JO:

We started as an educational and environmental initiative to reduce the amount of waste that was going into the landfill by diverting materials being disposed of that were still reusable. These donated materials from businesses and individuals were collected by Resource Depot and distributed to the educational community, specifically to help stretch the budgets of nonprofit organizations and teachers.

 

 

 

Resource Depot has stayed with that mission. However, since moving to a new, larger location in 2013, in West Palm Beach, the organization has not only expanded its physical footprint, but also expanded our programs and services. Now that we are more centrally located in the county we do more than just provide materials. We provide DIY resources and ideas for projects, host field trips and workshops for students and families as well as show artwork of local “junk artists” in our gallery.

 

 

 

Many people don’t realize that membership to Resource Depot is open to anyone in the community. Of course, teachers continue to shop here, as well as artists, families, home school moms and other community groups.

CH: I attended an unusual event called “Signal House.” Can you describe it and tell me how that project was conceived?

JO:

The Signal House was a grant program made possible through the Cultural Council of Palm Beach County to serve as a way for us to activate a portion of unutilized outdoor space on our property as an interactive art installation. The grant provided funds for Resource Depot to secure Alex Branch, a visiting artist from Brooklyn, NY, who had created a similar installation in NY.

 

 

 

 

We were really attracted to the project because of its aesthetics and its collaborative nature. We had connected with Sarah Knouse, an art teacher at the Oxbridge Academy, who introduced us to Alex and her site-specific installations – and Signal House truly is a site-specific art installation. It is located in our outdoor “back yard”, which is adjacent to the railroad tracks. Rather than fight the noise, Alex chose to work with it. She created opportunities for visitors to have rhythm and music making experiences within the space. Signal House is just the first step in our plans to enhance the outdoor space to offer more opportunities for the community to gather for art workshops, music and even to view films on the building’s white wall.

 

 

This project is serving as a catalyst for us to create more and more space for events and unique programming. We have opportunities for the public “to see, to do and to make.”–whether someone wants to get materials here, learn something new or see what others are creating…there is something for everyone!

CH: What are some of the upcoming events?

JO:

Tyler Whitesides, a “junk” musician and author of the Janitor Series, visited Signal House Event. Tyler is a percussionist in his group, Jammin’ Janitors, who create music by “playing” janitorial equipment such as spray bottles, trash cans, and buckets. We continue to plan other community events in the Signal House space until the installation commences on June 4.

 

 

 

In addition to Signal House, we are gearing up for another exciting summer of Junk Camp at Resource Depot for kids entering grades K-5. At this year’s 2016 Junk Camp, children will spend the day exploring the possibilities within all the discarded materials in the world around them, while learning new ways of transforming everyday objects into extraordinary works of art, developing their imaginations, problem solving skills, and love for the environment in a fun, hands-on manner unique to Resource Depot!

Guerilla A.R.T. (All Reusable Trash) Challenge

 

 

 

Also, we are currently recruiting crafters and artists for our 3rd round of the Guerilla A.R.T. (All Reusable Trash) Challenge at the Kelsey Theatre (adjacent to The Brewhouse Gallery) in Lake Park on Saturday, June 4th from 5-8pm. The Guerilla A.R.T. Challenge is an on-the-spot crafting challenge consisting of 4 teams who take on 3 quick challenges to compete for the title of “Extreme Guerilla A.R.Tist”.
In each round, contestants will channel their inner “MacGyvers”, out-crafting each other with Resource Depot’s repurposed materials and their own wits, creativity, skills, and secret weapons! Three celebrity judges will rate projects on artistic merit, technique, and utility, but bribing is *encouraged* — expect that to upend the scored results and lead to much hilarity.

CH: How do you go about accepting contributions?

JO:

We love contributions and are always looking for teaching materials, arts & craft supplies, and other cool materials with lots of possibilities! We cannot accept anything that that is broken, unsafe or unclean. Donations can be dropped off anytime we are open (See Website for Hours www.resourcedepot.net). We also have a pick-up service for larger business donations.

CH: How would an individual or an organization go shopping at Resource Depot?

JO:

 

Anybody can come off the street and get a one day bin pass to fill up a recyclable tote bin for $5.00. If you become a member, you are given a larger tote bin to “shop” and you may have unlimited visits throughout the year, as well as placing items on a wish list. Some of our customers have placed items such as theater props, a sewing machine, projector, or large quantities of items. Our inventory of materials changes daily (even hourly) as donations come in, so visit often as you will discover new treasures each time your are here! Currently we have a great deal of fabric, file folders and binders. We also have matte board and frames, loads of plastic containers, poster board and other items that artists can use on a rather regular basis.

 

 

 

 

CH: What is the most important thing for people to know about Resource Depot?

JO:

We are a one-of-kind nonprofit in this community. We enjoy being a pay-it-forward kind of organization, where we are extending the life of objects that will not go into a landfill, extending peoples budgets, and opening their minds, while at the same time contributing to sustainability and environmental health of our local community.  I am also available to speak to groups and organizations!

LACArt Basel ArtBus tour 2015 flyer

 

 

 Gerri wants to offer the audience a review of Contemporary Art from the Impressionists up to the 21st century, showing that Contemporary Art all has to do with artists relating their artwork to the times. Their art expresses concepts and ideas that are current and includes what the public is involved with and thinking about. Very often the general public thinks that contemporary art is out of context and taken from left field but that is not the case, at all. All in all, the lecture will heighten the experience of people who take advantage the Lighthouse ArtCenter’s bus tour opportunities.

 

LACart_basel_miami_beach_2013_9553584465_2_1

 

Gerri Aurre earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Art Education and was a career Art teacher in New York. She has traveled worldwide throughout her life. Her art is about landscape, the figure and abstraction coming from the essence of those travel experiences. Aurre is the President of the North County Artists Association.

Celebrate the Artful Back Alley 

Award Winners surprise with cutting-edge paintings!

 

Twenty local artists created large-scale murals on a 200-foot long outdoor wall, while more than 300 visitors enjoyed watching the acrylic paintings come alive. The inaugural Back Alley Mural Festival was a collaborative, community event held at Gallery Square North in Tequesta on September 19-20, 2015. The murals will be on view in the public space for one month, culminating with a festive Art Stroll to celebrate the artful back alley on October 16 from 6 to 9 p.m. The event is free to members of the Lighthouse ArtCenter and to the public.

 

 

LACMuralMark Rupprect, Flamingo

“Flamingo” by Mark Rupprect

Presented by the Lighthouse ArtCenter, the festival was a celebration of the power of art in public places. “As the ArtCenter is eco-friendly, no aerosols were used for the paintings,” said Cynthia Trone, Director of Education at the Lighthouse ArtCenter. “The murals created conversation, new friendships, artistic inspiration, and fueled a growing sense of community in the small Village of Tequesta.”

 

 

 

LACMuralFlorida Faucet, Manon Sander

“Florida Faucet” by Manon Sander

 

Julie Silk Beaumont, muralist and owner of Village Art Studios, saw the potential of creating a local, neighborhood art-centered outdoor painting event for “sunbirds, so we intentionally scheduled the event before the arrival of the busy ‘snowbird’ season.”

 

  • In keeping with the easy-going camaraderie of the event, winners were chosen by Peoples’ Choice Award votes:  First Place was awarded to Mark Rupprect, a local graffiti artist and fine art teacher. Signing his work “Bulks”, he is known for his bold and colorful designs, Mark was a crowd favorite with his striking chrome, black and white Flamingo and Alligator.

 

  • Second Place went to Lighthouse ArtCenter faculty member Marta Llorens. An artist and conceptual thinker from Barcelona, Spain, Marta created her first large-scale contour painting. Her abstract portraits are gaining an audience both abroad and locally and her background in graphic arts, fine arts and historical research is apparent in her fantastic and detailed work.

 

 

  • Manon Sander, a local artist and faculty member at Lighthouse ArtCenter, won Third Place. Her “Florida Faucet” was a surreal and delightful departure from her familiar plein air paintings that continue to win her awards and a devoted following of collectors and students. It features a quote by Thoreau which captured the essence of the day, ”It’s not what you look at that matters, it’s what you see.”
