The National Association of Women Artists, Florida Chapter exhibits within the Sallie & Berton Korman Gallery at the Center For Creative Education.  “The Influence of Frida Kahlo on Contemporary Art” inspired NAWAFL artists to use the elements of Frida Kahlo’s work to inspire their own, contemporary artworks.  Our Exhibition Inspiration:  “I paint my own reality.  The only thing I know is that I paint because I need to, and I paint whatever passes through my head without any other consideration.” Frida Kahlo

 

 

Frida Kahlo’s artistic depiction of her reality was forged through her pain.   She had been crippled by polio at a very early age which severely stunted her right leg.  Later, while studying Medicine (at 18 years old), she was involved in and survived a horrific accident that resulted in smashing her legs (her right one had to be amputated), as well as breaking her back and receiving multiple internal injuries.  Yet she persevered and found her new direction, in life, through her art.  She lived her life unapologetic.  She never pretended to be something other than who she was.  She embraced her Mexican Heritage, she spoke her mind when it came to politics or matters of the heart.  And she painted through her pain.   It is her warrior spirit that resonates with so many women and artists today.

Gallery Managers, Maxine Schreiber and Irma Friedman tell The Rickie Report, “People find sustenance and solace, challenge and mystery in the natural world, and art has been a means by which humans express their awe of, communion with, dependence on, and isolation from nature. Artists in every medium from painting to photography to jewelry were asked to submit work which represented their relationship with or feelings about wildlife, plants, or landscapes”.

 

 

Lupe Lawrence, a landscape painter and art teacher at the Center for Creative Education and the Progressive Afterschool Art Community Education program (PACE) at the Norton Museum as well as a Lake Park resident was the judge for awards. An awards presentation will take place on March 29th at 6:00 PM. Don’t miss this exhibit!

Our Certificate of Solicitation allows us to pursue tax-deductible donations to generate scholarship monies. In December and January, APBC presented “ART by the Inch” in which the gallery sold artworks produced and donated by our members to raise funds for our scholarship program. This is a worthy cause and we are hoping for more donations, which people can provide by going to artistsofpalmbeachcounty.com or clicking on this link https://www.artistsofpalmbeachcounty.com/donations.

What To Enter:

‘Florida: Faces & Places’ is focused on how local, Florida residents spend each day of their lives. A global view of Florida from outside of the state often related to Beaches, Theme Parks, and other sunshine baked tourist destinations. This exhibition is an opportunity to explain what life is truly like for Florida locals, day in and day out through photography.

 

 

This exhibition will pair with a Summer, student documentary project being created with a collaboration between Center for Creative Education’s C4 Media Arts & Technology program and Blue Planet Writers’ Room.  Two local, non-profits with missions dedicated to education.  The students will be able to share their own stories that document their lives and culture in Florida.  Many of these stories will surprise people who have never been to Florida or only connect to Florida from a tourism perspective.

Photography by Christopher Fay

 

 

Photographer Christopher Fay believes recognizing beautiful ART around you constantly is a gift and skill that comes from viewing the world through the Artist’s Eye. The trick is to develop the patience and imagination to recognize it.  From there, each image calls for its own composition.  With the onset of digital photography and many digital photography advancements, new worlds have opened a new age of creating high-quality photographic artwork.  By using various techniques and tools to enhance regular photographs, spectacular results can be achieved in the finished image.

 

Photography by Hope Kahn

 

 

Photographer Hope Kahn uses many different photographic means to capture an image; such as digital cameras, plastic cameras and pinhole cameras. She then applies, a variety of finishing techniques.  Some of the techniques used are historical processes such as Photo Gravure, Cyanotype as well as the use of paper negatives. The common thread in her art is the blending of the realistic into the interpretative – producing a poetic quality to her photographs. Her clients have often called her work “mysterious and otherworldly.”  

 

 

 

Photography by Shalini Nopany

 

 

Photographer Shalini Nopany is known for both black and white and color images of people and places. Her photographs, which radiate with a woman’s sensibility, freeze a moment in time that captures emotions and actions. Her themes have included motion, emotion, and people’s activities in different settings.

 


Curator Bruce Helander

 

 

Curator Bruce Helander is an art critic, arts writer, curator and artist whose specialty is collage and assemblage. He has a master’s degree in painting from the prestigious Rhode Island School of Design, where he later became the Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs of the college. He is a former White House fellow of the National Endowment for the Arts and has won the South Florida Cultural Consortium fellowship for professional achievement in the visual arts. He is one of two 2014 inductees to the Florida Artists Hall of Fame, Florida’s most prestigious arts and culture honor (the other is musician Tom Petty).

The 20-poster set features beautifully detailed satellite images of the planet—from the swirling arms of a massive hurricane and the grid-like pattern of Kansas farmland to the triangular shadows cast by the Great Pyramids and the sinuous channels entering the Arctic Ocean. “Earth from Space” illustrates how satellite imagery is gathered and used to expand mankind’s understanding of life on Earth. It also explores the remote-sensing technology used to gather the images and describes the individual satellites whose images are on display.

 

 

 

 

“The Smithsonian is proud to be able to share illuminating scholarship from the National Air and Space Museum in a format that allows for extraordinarily widespread distribution,” said Anna Cohn, SITES director. “‘Earth from Space’ inspires dreams and discovery, and while the photographs were taken from far away, they can launch learning opportunities about our lives here on earth.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The poster exhibition was born of the popular and award-winning museum exhibition of the same title that premiered November 2006 at the National Air and Space Museum. In 2007, “Earth from Space” won a U.S. Geological Survey communications award for science content.  The images provide clues about the nature of our planet and offer teachers opportunities to engage students in a broad array of science topics, including geography, environmental studies, ecology, oceanography and meteorology.

 

 

 

 

An educational companion web site, www.earthfromspace.si.edu, contains an online version of the SITES exhibition, and additional images and information. It also provides numerous educational resources, including lesson plans, classroom activities, web site links and available publications.

 

 

 

“Earth from Space” was developed by the Center for Earth and Planetary Studies at the National Air and Space Museum, in collaboration with SITES. Andrew Johnston, a geographer at the center and author of “Earth from Space” (Firefly Books, 2004), is the exhibition’s curator.

 

 

SITES has been sharing the wealth of Smithsonian collections and research programs with millions of people outside Washington, D.C., for more than 50 years. SITES connects Americans to their shared cultural heritage through a wide range of exhibitions about art, science and history, which are shown wherever people live, work and play.

In conjunction with the Smithsonian images, CCE has partnered with the South Florida Science Center & Aquarium to combine NASA images taken by photojournalist Gary Rothstein.  These images are comprised of shuttle launches and up-close detail shots of shuttle preparations for space travel.  Famed Florida landscape photographer, Clyde Butcher is also featured with his ‘God Speed’ image on loan that captured Astronaut John Glenn’s ascent as the oldest person to go into space aboard Discovery in 1988.  Exhibition support by the Cultural Council of Palm Beach County.  Also paired with the exhibition is a live performance of ‘The War of the Worlds: The 1938 Radio Script.’  This performance based on the novel by H.G. Wells will be performed live in CCE’s Hilton Theater which combines live performers and digital media in an unprecedented public offering not found anywhere else in Palm Beach County.

‘War of the Worlds’ is patterned after the Lux Radio Theatre program which ran for years through the 30’s, 40’s and 50’s. Lux Radio Theatre was indisputably the biggest, most important, most expensive drama anthology program on radio. It ran from October 14, 1934 until June 7, 1955, then continued on television as Lux Video Theatre until 1957. In all, some 926 one-hour episodes were broadcast, providing a record of the most important entertainment events in American theatre and, later, film. This production of ‘War of the Worlds’ features local actors and involves the use of live and recorded sound effects.
