Meet Deborah Knowlson

Inaugural Virtual Artist in Residence April, 2020

 

 

Deborah Knowlson tells The Rickie Report, “I’m a self-taught watercolor artist. Wildlife and nature are a life-long passion, even if the painting is new. The skills and the subject matter, wildlife and nature, came naturally to me.  I was born in London, England, and now live in Oregon, US. My interests revolve around nature: art, gardening, science, friendships, hobbies, and outdoor activities. But, I am not young.  As the world became more affected by climate change, stresses on nature, and impacts of trafficking animals I became aware that speaking up and expressing concern and hope is something anyone can do regardless of age and situation. I chose to do it through painting. My family and friends are supportive and I am proud and grateful for anything I can do to raise awareness and participate in protecting what I love“.

I painted this watercolor to support Lola ya Bonobo, the world’s only sanctuary for bonobos rescued from the illegal wildlife trade.  Esake was rescued on her way to a wildlife market after a bushmeat hunter killed her mother. Here she is, safe at the sanctuary.    For more information https://www.lolayabonobo.org

“Reaching the Heart,” this watercolor was auctioned at the #BeJane Jane Goodall-Institut, Austria in 2019.  It represents the hope that is found by reaching the heart of people to care about wildlife and nature.  You can see the image of Dr Jane holding (oh my!) Deb’s painting. An extremely meaningful moment for her, as a conservation artist. This photo of Dr Jane hangs on Deb’s wall with the family photos!   https://www.thejanegoodallinstitute.com

Deb’s entries to the ENDANGERED Fine Art & Photography Contest:

I chose the three paintings of Asian elephants to enter into the ENDANGERED Fine Art & Photography Contest 2020 because they are a family group.  The relevance of this in these strange times is that we have all retreated from the world into our own families due to the health situation.  Whether our family is just ourselves, or our immediate family, our focus suddenly changed to what is precious and who matters to us.  Elephants have incredible ability to bond and feel empathy for their family and herd.  In these times we, ourselves, can empathize with this ability and understand that all living creatures are worthy and their family and herd is as important to them as we are to our ourselves.  

 

 

Let’s honor that.

Questions? Lindsey@Art4Apes.com

How Can Art Help?

 

Deborah says, “My message to other artists who paint wildlife and nature for awareness of conservation and animal welfare is that we often feel like we are not achieving anything by doing so. Who will see our art? Who will understand our message? Will it make any difference in the vast need for humankind to meet all its needs while caring about wildlife and nature”?

Most days we say, “No, it’s too little and it’s just a drop in the bucket.” Yet, many of us keep dropping in the bucket and keep up our small contribution.

Our ability to capture the spirit of animals and wildlife and attract people’s attention is part of a far bigger picture of individuals who work hard and dedicate their lives and careers to attempting to save species, lands, seas, and skies in a rapidly changing environment with many pressures on nature.

 

Will art make a difference?

 

A person took the time and interpreted something wild or a situation and shared that with others to say, this is relevant, this is important, please look at this. And people do! People like and enjoy various styles and forms of art, there is no right and wrong way to do it.

 

So enter contests; exhibit work, sell and donate pieces, speak up, and keep at it. There is no good that comes from hours of creating that results in a piece sitting in a closet and not shared.

There is nothing to lose. Every little bit helps.

Art Synergy:

A non-profit organization, was fortunate to have caught the eye of the Lesters and through their auspices, the organization has received a booth at the Art Palm Beach for the past 5 years, with 2019 being the sixth Art Synergy Exhibition once again looking forward to a great exhibition.

Art Synergy has grown considerably since its inception and our volunteer staff and support has grown along with it.  The organization, run by Rolando Chang Barrero and Ilene Gruber Adams, artists and advocates, holds several meetings yearly, open to the public, where we request help from the community to work with us in everything from planning, to finance hanging the shows.  We look forward to another successful year and cannot thank the Lesters enough for the support they have shown us.

 

 

 

 

 

Mission:

Art Synergy is the unique countywide movement of artists, business, and civic leaders committed to unifying and promoting the diverse culture of Palm Beach County’s and South Florida’s vibrant arts community. Our goal is to broaden the education and culture of our children through the arts via joint parent/child experiences.

Want To Share Your Artwork?

 

Would you like to display your artwork at The Brewhouse Gallery? We offer excellent terms. No commission for a 3-month run, and unlike traditional artist co-ops, you are not required to put in volunteer time running the gallery. For more information, send us an email: art@brewhousegallery.com.

 

 

Visionary owner, AJ Brockman tells The Rickie Report, “What is the number one drawback to a traditional artist co-op or gallery? Very little foot traffic which ultimately leads to very little sales. With this model there is a constant draw of foot traffic and nightly events to get people in the door, seeing your work on the walls. Not to mention, people are much more inclined to make impulse buys after loosening up with a glass of wine or a beer. By no means is this a bar in the traditional sense… It is more of a public house, creative space, think tank, hang out”.

 

How is Brewhouse Gallery different from a traditional gallery or co-op?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  • Huge foot traffic draw with nightly events including open mic night, singer-songwriter acoustic jam sessions, painting classes, creative/inspirational speakers, live music, trivia night, etc.

 

  • One major event per rotation, essentially an artist opening, that is heavily promoted and features all of our resident artists and their work.

 

  • No need to volunteer your time, we handle everything. With a traditional co-op you are required to commit a certain amount of volunteer time to run the gallery. We handle everything and simply call you if you have made a sale or someone is interested in negotiating.

 

  • All work will be prescreened and approved. This keeps the subject matter to a high standard and competition from fellow artists to a minimum in order to reinforce the quality of work that you are being represented with.

 

  • Want to update your space with a new piece? No problem. You are free to come in and swap out any of your work at any time… as well as inviting others to see your work at our location and scheduling special events of your own.

 

  • NO COMMISSION! (Minus a small processing fee of 4.9% on credit cards). That’s right, we are one of the only galleries that gives our artists 100% of all sales.

 

We have two sizes available:

Either our half space (approximately 40 ft.² of displayable wall space) for $150 per month ($450 + sales tax), or our standard space (approximately 64 ft.² of displayable wall space) for $200 per month ($600 + sales tax).

Both of these require a three month commitment and the rental fee to be paid in full (all three months) upon installation of your work. As of right now we are only offering a three month contract as it is part of our model to always bring in new work and highlight as many artists as possible. That being said we give all of our artists the opportunity to re–apply and be placed right back in our queue to exhibit again.

 

Please reply with what size space you may be interested in and any other questions or concerns you may have.
