“Orbital” by Carol Staub

 

 

Exhibition Chair, Beth Scher, is among the impressive artists whose work will be exhibited. Beth Scher’s work is deeply rooted in themes of femininity, feminism and the roles of women in the military theater. During travels in Israel, she became deeply sympathetic to the plight of women conscripted into military service. She is concerned about what their challenges can mean for women of the world. Ms. Scher graduated from the University of the Arts in Philadelphia with an MFA in Studio Art in December of 2013. Since then, she has appeared in many group shows and exhibitions in New York, Chicago, Virginia and Florida, including a recent show “Fabricated” at the Cornell Museum in Delray Beach. She has been featured in the Arts and Culture Section of the July 23, 2014 issue of the Huffington Post and the October/November 2014 issue of Bust Magazine.

NAWA is the oldest professional women’s fine arts group in the United States, and the Florida Chapter of NAWA was the first regional chapter in the country. It was founded in 1995 by Liana Moonie, recently deceased resident of Palm Beach, a past president of the National organization and Madeline Weiss, the first president of the Florida Chapter. All artists wishing to join the prestigious Florida Chapter must first be juried into the Association Headquarters in New York City.

Kinetic – Intentions by Elayna Toby Singer

 

 

 

 

 

High school students at Boynton Beach Community High School create mini-mobile kinetic art project

 

 

 

 The students created the mobiles in visual art instructor Ms. Gwenn Seuling’s class. The mobiles, along with participant’s written intentions, will cover four downtown trees to create a curtained outdoor “room” with positive messages that will blow in the wind. The project gave high school students enrolled in visual arts, earth science and computer classes an opportunity to participate in a community project and to learn about kinetic art. 

 

 

Award-Winning Artist Elayna Toby Singer

Unveils Kinetic Art “Room”

Suspended Among Trees

February 4-5

 

Public invited to be part of interactive temporary tree art installation “Kinetic Intentions” 

 

 


“Kinetic Intentions” is commissioned by the City of Boynton Beach Art in Public Places. Visit www.elaynatobyart.com/kineticintentions for more info about this community creation. For more info about the International Kinetic Art Festival please visit www.intlkineticartevent.org.

 

Elayna Toby Singer

 

The temporary site specific art installation Kinetic Intentions is the brainchild of Elayna Toby Singer, last year’s International Kinetic Art “People’s Choice” winner. Over two days, February 4-5, Kinetic Intentions will “come to life” in the park just east of Boynton’s Civic Center, as thousands of festival attendees create and attach Intention Ribbons, and mini-Mahogany mobiles (or select from hundreds on display from community workshops) to recycled washers on the 150 six-foot kinetic strands.  Visitors to the International Kinetic Art Exhibit and Symposium will be drawn to walk in and around the magical outdoor “room” made of twirling strands adorned with mirrors, bells, found washers, community created mini-mahogany mobiles and intention ribbons; all which animate the wind.

 

 

 

Kinetic Intentions Workshop

 

 

“Kinetic Intentions is a community ‘moving meditation’ for manifesting personal and environmental balance,” says Singer. “With every breath, positive thought (intention) and movement we are ‘mobilized’ to take better care of ourselves and the environment which sustains us.”   Central to this environmental community art project are thousands of Florida Native Mahogany seed pods Singer collected locally from shade trees along neighborhood streets and parking lots throughout Palm Beach County.

 

 

Kinetic Intentions Workshop

 

 

Singer chose the Mahogany seed pod specifically due to its threatened status in its native habitat from over harvesting for furniture. She sees the recycled pods as a symbol of the delicate balance between us and our environment. The challenge of sustaining balance becomes tangible as the public uses the recycled Mahogany pods to create a balanced mobile.

 

KineticIntentions Workshop

 

 

ABOUT KINETIC INTENTIONS:

 


Following the success of the February 2015 Kinetic-Connections, which won the People’s Choice Award for the transformation of an historic kapok tree into living kinetic art, artist Elayna Toby Singer created Kinetic Intentions. The multi-phase community project included six county-wide, free workshops that explored “the Art, Science & Soul of Making Mobiles” under the direction of Singer. Each mini-mobile is constructed using fishing line and recycled seed pods from Florida’s Mahogany trees which are threatened to extinction in the wild. Participants experienced the centering, meditative process of mobile making while pondering their intentions for personal and environmental balance. Those intentions were written onto cloth ribbons which will be affixed, along with the mobiles to an outdoor, kinetic “room” during the International Kinetic Art Exhibit and Symposium February 2017. Ms. Singer creates the outdoor, kinetic “room” with 150 six-foot long twirling strands adorned with mirrors, bells, found washers, community created mini-mahogany mobiles and intention ribbons suspended among four trees in Boynton Beach, FL during the International Kinetic Art Exhibit and Symposium. Attendees to the Kinetic Art Exhibit and Symposium are invited to create their own mini-mobile and intention ribbon, or to select ones from the workshops and add them to each strand, bringing the tree art installation to “life.” Kinetic Intentions is commissioned by Boynton Beach Art in Public Places.

 

 

 

ABOUT THE ART OF ELAYNA TOBY SINGER:

Elayna Toby Singer has been creating kinetic art sculpture and jewelry since the mid 1990’s and incorporating “found objects” since 2003. Locally, her commissioned works and exhibitions have been shown in Palm Beach and Broward Counties for more than six years. In 2015 her temporary site specific community creation “Kinetic-Connections” received the People’s Choice Award for magically transforming an historic Kapok tree into a kinetic sculpture with upcycled objects from the community. In 2009, Elayna Toby was invited by Habla: The Center for Language and Culture in Merida Mexico, to lead her first “Natural Mobiles” workshop. With a BS in Cultural Anthropology and an MS in Public Horticulture and Museum Management, Ms. Singer’s career in creative place-making began in the early 1990’s when she spent fifteen years in some of the nation’s leading public gardens and arboreta creating experiences that engaged the public in the art, science and heritage of plants and the essential role they play in our lives.

“Lotus Flower” by J.Cohen

 

 

The history of NAWA is a testament to the strength and resilience of a group of strong women who would not accept being shut out of the art salons, galleries and art exhibitions open to male artists during the 19th century. The founding of the organization proves that, despite adversity and discrimination – which many feel extends to this day — women are an integral and valuable part of the arts community.

On the 3rd Thursday evening of each month, enjoy a wine and passed hors d’ oeuvres reception featuring fun, social activities, such as concerts, lectures, art demonstrations, live performances and gallery talks. It’s a perfect opportunity to broaden your knowledge of the arts and mingle with other art enthusiasts and Lighthouse ArtCenter members.   Sponsored by the Meyer Law Firm. 

 

Violeta tells The Rickie Report, “In a world where we can relate to food and wine, often times , more than we can relate to Art, we’ll discuss how to acquire new works as your taste develops. Our taste in Art changes with exposure and time…”

 

During this presentation, Violeta will address how developing your Art Palette will help you grow with your art investments. From where to view Art, how to look at it, how to relate and how to make better decisions in who or what to collect while staying in your comfort zone or, stepping outside of it in order to diversify your portfolio.
