“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.

Emmanuel Gonzales has had a strong presence in the in the south Florida art scene since his graduation from Palm Beach Atlantic College in 2001. He has a bold and edgy style fusing together collage, pencil, pastel and oils to create strong imagery that consistently makes a statement. His work has been seen in various juried shows and galleries in Palm Beach County and Orlando. Most recently he has displayed at the Voight Gallery on Palm Beach Island, OSGS Gallery in Northwood, and currently at the Brewhouse Gallery displaying quite a few examples of his work.

Emmanuel explores the past and present through realism and portraiture. His body of work includes a growing retrospective of American icons, where each piece is presented as a fragment in a larger American patchwork. He tells The Rickie Report, “Individually, my subjects attempt to characterize the social climate at a given moment in history. They are influential, recognizable images; relevant within specific ethnic and social groups. Some subjects are foreign to others outside of a particular group or generation. Just as one group identifies emotionally with a particular image through a shared social lens, outsiders will experience these images differently. The “recognition factor” of my subjects reaffirms the identity and unique cultural perspective of a specific group while simultaneously establishing an ”otherness” in viewers outside of a given group. I use pencil, pastels, oil, and watercolor to create movement and energy to bring intimacy to large-scale pieces with an attention to subtleties often refined through detailed pencil work”.

February 6-8, 2015 International Kinetic Art Exhibit and Symposium created by the Boynton Beach Arts Commission produced by the City of Boynton Beach through its Art in Public Places program. It’s a signature cultural event for the City’s Strategic Plan and is key to it’s economic development planning.

The objectives of this biennial Symposium are to:

  • The goal is to deliver an Art and Cultural event that transcended typical art fairs, delivers international attention to the City of Boynton Beach and educated and engaged a diverse audience about public art.
  • Celebrate the dynamic and compelling aspects of today’s kinetic art to the general public, public art professionals, as well as art and museum curators, and gallerists.
  • Build public and private interest in collecting and/or commissioning kinetic art through exposure to its rich historical context and through exhibitions of its various contemporary forms.
  • Motivate educators to incorporate kinetic art into the S.T.E.A.M. curriculum. The importance of adding “art” to STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) is to utilize both sides of the brain and to make learning “fun.”
  • Stimulate creative applications of various technologies in kinetic art, including “green” technologies in concert with the City’s Green Building Program.
  • Create a highly visible, bi-annual, international event that nurtures an exciting contemporary art form, while stimulating the local economy, creating an important cultural destination, and revitalizing a local community.

In the Midst of Hardship, Art Continues to Give Respite

“The Show Must Go On” is normally associated with theater.  In the midst of dealing with the devastation of the Boynton Beach Flood and injury, Rolando Chang Barrero put aside an important document.  The ARTalFRESCO satellite exhibit was one the biggest efforts by Rolando to highlight the City of Boynton Beach’s art scene and was a pillar of Art Synergy’s premiere.  The Rickie Report shares the details of the document and invites everyone to gain a better understanding of the role of art in our everyday lives.  We include a number of events that you will not want to miss!

 

 

 

 

Boynton Beach Leads the Way

 

 

 RECEPTION FOR  “ELEMENTS”  EXHIBITION

 

 

February 13, 2014

Boynton Beach City Library

208 South Seacrest Blvd.

5:30  –  7:30 p.m.

Exhibit Continues Through May,  2014

 

 

 

While dealing with the devastation of the Boynton Beach Flood, a brown envelope was put aside to be opened at a later moment.  The manila envelope was stacked among the many “get to it later” correspondence that did not look like a bill.  At the time cleaning up and preparing for the ARTalFRESCO Exhibition was paramount, it was only days away–and the show must go on. The ARTalFRESCO satellite exhibit was one the biggest efforts by Rolando Chang Barrero to highlight the City of Boynton Beach’s art scene. Busy with the cleanup, the exhibit, an injury to his left hand, and fundraising for the losses incurred by the flood, the envelope remained unopened.

Damage from the Boynton Beach Flood

After all was said and done, in a moment reprieve from the madness, the letter from the U.S. House of Representatives in Washington D.C. was opened.  The Honorable Alcee L. Hastings had penned a glowing letter of recognition to local artist and arts administrator, Rolando Chang Barrero, for “The wonderful work teaching the students of Manatee Elementary the importance of recycling and showing them how to turn trash into art.” The Congressman’s letter which came as an unexpected surprise, “Brought tears to my eyes,” says Barrero.

Rolando who is no stranger to motivating the community through his art is participating in “ELEMENTS”, a three man exhibit on the importance of safeguarding South Florida’s Eco-system.  “ELEMENTS” includes work by Greg Matthews, Rolando Chang Barrero and Anthony Burks, Sr.  at the City Library on Boynton Beach, all are invited to the reception on February 13, 2014 from 5:30-7:30.

The South Florida ecosystem relies heavily on elements which surround our wildlife and impact our daily lives. From the aquifer to coastal waters, from everglades to beaches, from hurricanes to flash fires, we experience our environment in its natural habitat.
Greg Matthews, Rolando Barrero Chang and Anthony Burks

Greg Matthews, Rolando Chang Barrero and Anthony Burks,Sr.

In this exhibit three artists Rolando Chang Barrero, Anthony Burks Sr. and Greg Matthews highlight the importance of the environmental conversation movement in South Florida. Collectively, the artists engaged in conversations and site visits with leaders of conservatory organizations throughout South Florida.
IMG_6163
They observed, documented and processed their images and experiences.  The artists created three collaborative artworks which are the centerpiece of the Elements exhibition. Each artist contributed his medium to the collaborative artworks: Rolando, painting; Anthony, drawing; and Greg, photography. The collaborative artworks are not only esthetically pleasing but have great social impact. Each artist also has several individual artworks exhibited to demonstrate their medium and commitment to environmental issues.
IMG_6037
This exhibition supports and builds upon the City of Boynton Beach’s GREEN programs including Earthweek activities, Climate Action Plan, Galaxy E3 Elementary School, Seaborne Cove and its Old Dixie Eco Walk.  It is hoped is that visitors will have a deeper appreciation for the South Florida’s ecosystems by experiencing this exhibition.
Later this month Rolando will be joining Lori Durante, organizer of Children & Family Day, to produce a puppets and puppet show with children on the importance of fresh fruit in their daily diet.  The theme for the the annual event is ‘Apples.’  Children & Family Day is held at the Boynton Beach Women’s  Club, on February 23, 2014, noon to 4 p.m.

Vicki Siegel Exhibits Acrylic and Mixed Media Paintings at Multiple Venues

With work in multiple venues, including a SOLO show, artist Vicki Siegel has been pouring her creative energy into new work and organizing a SOLO exhibit with a range of work from the last ten years.  Her paintings include images of both collective and personal memories. The Rickie Report is pleased to share the details of her exhibits and hopes you will stop by to view some of her wonderful, dreamlike creations.

 

 

 

VICKI SIEGEL EXHIBITS AT MULTIPLE VENUES 

 

 

 

Vicki Siegel’s paintings are informed by memory, both personal and collective. “Memories are imperfect representations of the past that are altered, fragmented, reconstructed and reinterpreted over time” says Siegel. “In my narrations details are found in layers often revealing something forgotten or missing from actual experiences or by the collective memories we share”.

 

"Gioia"

“Gioia” by Vicki Siegel (Acrylic and Image Transfer)

 

 

 

 

In her first SOLO show, “Journeys”, artist Vicki Siegel takes the viewer on an artistic journey from the outside world to a world that exists in the imagination. The exhibition takes place at the Weisman Delray Community Center, January 21, 2014- March 2, 2014. The Center is located at 7091 W. Atlantic Ave. in Delray Beach. Hours are Monday – Thurs. 9 am – 5 pm, Friday 8:30 am – 4:30 pm. A reception with a brief artist talk will be held Sunday, February 16th from 2-4 pm. Free and open to the public. Call 561-558-2100.  “Journeys” runs January 21, 2014- March 2, 2014. 

 

 

 

With over twenty five paintings on display, from landscapes to figurative, these colorful works of art reflect the artist’s focus on both the spiritual and natural worlds. Many have a dreamlike calming atmosphere. Expressive use of acrylic paint with overlays of pencil, charcoal, and oil stick drawing, along with image transfers of photographs will delight the viewer.

 

A portion of the sales will benefit The Weisman Delray Community Center. It is part of the Ruth Rales Jewish Family Service. The Center is located at 7091 W. Atlantic Ave. in Delray Beach. Call 561-558-2100 for more information.

Guests are welcome for a $5 fee. There will also be a raffle with fabulous prizes and the proceeds will go to the Wellington Art Society Scholarship Fund.

Rolando Chang Barrero will be the guest speaker, talking about his life, his work and the role of the artist as an activist.   He began his career in the late 70’s as graphic designer creating T-shirts for some of the trendiest in New York City, Hollywood, Miami, San Francisco, Chicago, and Detroit.

 

Rolando1images

In the late 1980’s Rolando worked as both an art’s writer and in galleries.  In 1991 he retuned home to South Beach in Florida where he established his first gallery, The Ground Level on Lincoln Road, with fellow artist Jenny Person. The early part of the 90’s were spent exhibiting his work throughout the US, and traveling through Europe, Latin America, and Asia. His career was interrupted abruptly in 1994 when he was diagnosed with brain cancer.

 

 

While the remainder of the 90’s and the early part of this century was spent confronting medical issues and complications in 2008 Rolando returned to the art world as a freelance photographer in Austin, Texas working on a documentary series of nightlife images. In 2009, Rolando returned to South Beach and by 2010 went moved north to Palm Beach County where he opened The ActivistArtistA Studio and Gallery and Established the Boynton Beach Art District. “Since opening my gallery, in a run-down industrial park in 2012, my dream was to develop the area into an art district and cultural center.  It has taken only 2 years to do so. Now that it has been cleaned up, repainted, and nationally branded – it’s ready to be presented to the arts world.
