TOWN OF JUPITER ANNUAL JUBILEE

SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 3rd  

FREE

11 – 4 

 

The Jupiter Jubilee is an annual community event put on by the Town of Jupiter for area residents. The Jubilee typically has entertainment, civic, educational, and cultural components.

The Town of Jupiter has been holding the Jubilee the first week of February since 2003. Its genesis was the town’s 75th Anniversary Celebration in 2000, when a community event was held at the municipal complex. This original event brought the community together to celebrate life in Jupiter, and was so successful that town leaders began planning for an annual event.

Each year, the Jubilee highlights Jupiter’s unique character, history, community and natural treasures. In the spirit of conservation, the Jubilee is a Green event, and vendors, exhibits and attendees are encouraged to recycle, re-use, and conserve.

Free parking is available at Jupiter High School, just south of the Jupiter Community Center, on Military Trail. Free shuttles will operate continuously throughout the event, back and forth from the high school and the Jubilee.

Palms, Palms and More Palms! Use Palm Branches and Leaves to Create a One-of-a-Kind Basket!

The basket artistry of Mary Catello and Teri Salomoni  is awesome – but NOT impossible!   They will teach YOU techniques and designs that will bring branches and leaves to life again! Mary is offering a special three-part workshop in December. The Rickie Report shares the details here. This will make a great holiday gift – a class where they will learn how create their own designs!

The featured weaving material is queen palm inflorescence that has been carefully selected, then cleaned and dried over several weeks. The woods used for turning can be found curbside or purchased from an exotic collection. Each and every sculpture starts with the gathering and preparation of material, always mindful not to bruise or harm any trees or plants. The artistic workmanship is a combination of weaving and turning and the process may take weeks based on the complexity of the design.

Mary Catello

 

Mary has always enjoyed expressing her creativity. She was a trendsetting salon owner and stylist in New York City where creating masterpieces of tresses was her art form. Simultaneously, she opened The MaryGrace Institute; the first accredited Nail Technology School in New York. At MaryGrace students were taught, along with basic nail theory and practical lessons, award-winning techniques in airbrushing, 3-dimensional and multi-media nail art.

 

 

 

"Lady" by Mary Catello

“Lady” by Mary Catello

In 1994, after selling her salon and school, Mary relocated to South Florida and began taking classes in sketching, acrylics and water colors. But her true passion began when she met a basket weaver in Sedona, Arizona. Mary was inspired and a fiber artist was born!
Mary took only two basket weaving classes with internationally-known weavers, Flo Hoppe and Mary Hetts. She was introduced to palm inflorescence by Judy Briscoe, another basket weaver. On her own she began to experiment with size and materials determined to transform the traditional basket into art, and art it is! Her work is unique and identifiable.

Teri Salomoni

 

Teri has experienced both commercial and community recognition. She worked with Saks Fifth Avenue designing and decorating their floor and window displays at the Boca Raton, Worth Avenue and Palm Beach Gardens locations. She designed windows at the Nicole Miller boutiques in South Beach and Boca Raton. At sea, she was commissioned by Princess Cruise Lines to decorate their fleet for the holidays. 
In 2002, she partnered in a public art project “Flamingos in the Gables” and, in 2003, Teri assisted a local ceramic artist with an installation to beautify parks in urban areas. Also, that year, Teri was commissioned by the Broward County Art Teacher Association to make metal sculptures for their annual conferences.

In recent years, Teri found her passion in wood turning. To learn this art, Teri, studied with three local masters — Tim Rowe, Gerhard Schwenke and Lee Sky. She also studied with national masters, Bonnie Klien and Mark St. Ledger, and international master Marilyn Cambell. Teri’s mom taught her the basics of weaving but Teri took that to a new level by adding her love of wood. This mixed medium, wood and palm inflorescence, combined with the skills of weaving and wood turning, makes each one of Teri’s vessels truly unique!

 

 

 

 

 

Currently their work is on permanent display at:

 

 

  • Artisans on the Ave. in Lake Worth,
  • Florida Craftsmen Gallery, St Petersburg
  • The Stranahan House in Ft Lauderdale.
  • Annually at The Barn Gallery for the Rare Species Conservatory Foundation event.

 

 

Their work has been selected to be displayed at The Fairchild Garden and the Miami Botanical Gardens Art Shows, both in Miami, and the Mounts Botanical Garden in Palm Beach. In February 2013, they received the Elizabeth Geisler Award for Excellence and a First Place ribbon by the Venetian Basket Weavers Guild in Venice Florida for 2 pieces. Mary also presides over the newly- formed South Florida Basket and Fiber Guild which meets monthly. It is a great opportunity to network with other people interested in fiber arts and basketry.

She tells The Rickie Report, “Lately, I paint with acrylics and airbrush. I use watery layers with paint brush and airbrush for blending and fading. People say it’s “dream-like”, which is a perfect expression.”
"Leading the Way"

“Leading the Way”

“Some of my paintings have papers as texture. I still like to use handmade papers, since my paper sculptures called “Paperpeple” were the beginning of my art show career with Debbie and Howard Alan, back in the 80’s.

Like most creative people, I know……We are grateful to express ourselves through arts and crafts. It’s always something that resonates with our souls, and collectively, we share it in different ways.”

Lori Hlavsa writes this about her artwork, dedicated to Breast Cancer Awareness and Research efforts:

 

“Peace in nature .
 A place for contemplation,

and embracing
something
 so gentle, as real strength.”

Woven Wonders at Clay Glass Metal Stone Gallery

Weaving takes many forms and uses a wide variety of mediums.  The Rickie Report knows you’ll enjoy the upcoming exhibit at Clay Glass Metal Stone Cooperative Gallery, “It’s Only Make be-Weave”.  While the title may be punny, the array of art will be seriously amazing.  Opening reception takes place on Friday February 15.  Read this post for more details.

The Woven Wonders of Gallery Artists

And Invited Artist-Weavers throughout Palm Beach County

 It's only make beweave-1
 
Clay Glass Metal Stone Gallery celebrates the fine art weavings of Mary Catello, Teri Salamoni and Kathleen Kirschner on Friday February 15, 6-9 PM.  The artists have invited Palm Beach County’s finest art-weavers to join them in this exhibition.  The event is free to the public.
 
Palm Frond by Kathleen

Palm Frond by Kathleen Kirschner

Mary Catello and Teri Salomoni, a mother-daughter team of weavers, scavenge the highways and byways of Florida searching for the fallen trees or the piled up trimmings of the palm fluorescents, twigs, fronds and coconut flowers.  Armed with chain-saws and clippers they harvest this “trash,” clean it and dry it in preparation for their woven wonders. With simple math equations and a lot of concentration, sculptures, murals, paintings and baskets appear. Twisted natural vines, yarns and silks, beach gleanings, pods and nubby sticks are all incorporated into these works.  Teri, the chain-saw maven, cuts up fallen trees which she wood-turns into exquisite bowls.  Many of these bowls have woven elements.  Mary teaches basket weaving in the gallery every Monday morning.
 

Basket by Mary Catello

Basket by Mary Catello

Kathleen Kirschner weaves the same natural wonders with whimsy.  Her sculptural creations stand alone or make large wall hangings that bring the outdoors in.  An upholsterer to the stars, Kathleen uses the odds and ends leftovers of the thousand dollar a yard silks to create designer pillows and handbags that are sold in the gallery.
 
Swan by Kathleen Kirschner

Swan by Kathleen Kirschner

Fiber weavers, loom weavers, basket weavers and tapestry artists from all over Palm Beach County have been invited to partake in this exhibit.  Fine Craft Shows have recognized and elevated these art forms that spring from old Folk Art traditions to Fine Art status. This quality of work will be reflected throughout the gallery during this exhibition.
