Featured Artists:

 

Marijke Benedict – Clothing

HAEmarijkebenedict1

Handmade Clothing by Marijke Benedict

 

Marijke got her initial inspiration from her family. Her father was a Tailor in Amsterdam who suited the Queen of Holland. Her mother’s family was in show business, and Marijke remembers the awe she felt as a child for the beautiful costumes she saw.  Once Marijke’s own creative juices began to flow, combined with the technical skills she learned from her father, the seeds of Stijfselkissie were planted.

Handmade Clothing by Marijke Benedict

 

 

She tells The Rickie Report, “We always provide clothing that is comfortable, constructed with beautiful fabrics, timeless cuts, superb craftsmanship, and are totally individualized at a reasonable price. All garments are pre-washed and pre-shrunk, and they will “grow and shrink” 20 pounds with you. Most pieces can go in a washer and dryer, are great for traveling, are mix-and-matchable, easy fitting, flowing, figure flattering, and very COMFORTABLE”!

 

 

 

Smadar Livne – Painting

Livne, S 061220#6, 12/20/06, 1:28 PM, 8C, 7620x11636 (792+162), 150%, bent 5 stops, 1/8 s, R21.0, G0.0, B21.0

Painting by Smadar Livne

 

 

Smadar Livne, an award-winning Israeli born artist, creates unique and exciting works at her studio in Owings Mills, Maryland. Educated at Haifa University, Smadar has degrees in fine art, literature, and architecture. She has continued her education of philosophy through Baltimore Hebrew University.

 

 

HAEsmadarlivne1

Painting by Smadar Livne

 

 

 

 

Portraying scenes from her life and learning is what gives Smadar’s work an edge. The work contains short stories, poems and philosophical observations. Her works are vibrant and exciting, expressing the joy that Smadar sees in life.  Bold, bright colors in a multi-level composition with fabric, paper, and embedded photographs, create a pentimento effect that is both a visual and tactile experience. Smadar’s work incorporates historic images in a contemporary style.

 

 

Lesley Reich – Pottery

HAElesleyreich1

Porcelain Bowl by Lesley Reich

 

 

 

 

Lesley studied with Professor Hui Ka Kwong at Douglass College and worked with Janka McClatchey, a well-known potter in Ann Arbor, MI. While her early pieces were functional stoneware, she moved on to porcelain.  She tells The Rickie Report, “Using porcelain is a lot like throwing stiff cream cheese. Many of my bowls and vessels are translucent, and they are all trimmed so they are light, thin, and well-balanced, making them a joy to use. By combining jewel-tone oxidation (electric fired) glazes and applying them on the pure white porcelain, I achieve unusual, striking combinations”.

 

 

HAElesleyreich2

Porcelain Bowl by Lesley Reich

 

 

 

“I found a way to merge my love of words (I was a journalism major at Douglass) with my love of pottery, and developed a line of wheel thrown bowls, vases, and vessels with hand-lettered inspirational messages. This led to a body of work that embraces my philosophy of life. I use my own words, as well as those of my friends, historical figures, literary and other public figures, and that great prolific author – anonymous. I also enjoy doing, and even encourage, custom work to create the perfect piece for your special person or occasion. In addition to writing in English and the romance languages, I have made special orders in Hebrew, and even Sandscrit. Finding just the right saying for each of you gives me great pleasure. Together we can create functional heirlooms to be used today and cherished forever”.

 

Lesley has exhibited and sold her work in galleries, department stores, juried shows and shops nationwide. Her pieces are part of the White House Ornament Collection and the Franklin D. Roosevelt Library and Museum and numerous collections around the world.

The 2014 Featured Artist is Gail Markiewicz, a Master Clay artist who originates from central Connecticut.   Gail tells The Rickie Report, ” My fourth grade teacher asked each of us what we wanted to be when we grew up and without hesitation I decided that I would become an artist. As the years passed my convictions only grew stronger.  It seemed it was not only a vocation, but some inner calling that I could not deviate from”.

After having tried sculptural forms of art, Gail began to create beautiful, nonfunctional vessels and she has continued this art form since 1985.   She explains, “Probably the biggest link from the beginning of my work until now has been my love for textures and pattern.  I have combined textured pieces of clay and juxtaposed them into interesting positions to form a patchwork design.  The shape of the vessels are very striking.  The colors highlight the surfaces creating a feeling of antiquity and futuristic dimension embodied in each vessel”.

Gail attended Southern Connecticut State University ( Master Of Arts), the Penland School of Crafts and the Massachusetts College of Art.  Her work is represented in galleries around the United States and abroad.  She enjoys showing her creative pieces at Fine Arts & Crafts Show and meeting people who appreciate fine crafts.

The Boca Raton Fine Art Show™by Hot Works™ Focuses on Original Art and “Budding Artists”

The The Boca Raton Fine Art Show™ by Hot Works™ is around the corner!    Show Coordinator, Patty Narozny delivers high quality fine art and crafts as well as a “Budding Artist” exhibit for children grades 6 – 12, which is a large part of Narozny’s integrated education efforts.  In addition, Narozny is focused on educating the public about fine art.  The Rickie Report is pleased to share more details in this article.

 

Hot Works™ Presents:

 

Boca Raton Fine Art Show™

January 25 & 26, 2014

Downtown Boca Raton, on Federal Hwy./US-1 at Palmetto Park Road

Why Buy Original Art?

SEE ART * LOVE ART * BUY ART

Bocalogo1.14_high

 

When Boca Raton Fine Art Show™ Executive Director Patty Narozny attended the Western States Arts Federation’s annual Conference for Art Fair Directors in Louisville, KY, in October, an entire session focused on educating the public to purchase original works of art.  It was explained that in many of our communities, schools are lacking art education. Art grants and budgets are either being reduced or eliminated. It was emphasized that we need to take responsibility in educating our audiences on the value of purchasing original works of art, and how art directly affects, and reflects, our quality of life.

Original art is exactly what it says – original!  At the upcoming Boca Raton Fine Art Show™, you will meet the artist behind the work. He or she will be there, in the booth, to answer your questions or, simply, to tell you how it was done or even the story behind the work.  It’s at that point where the connection between buyer – whether first-time buyer or established collector – and artist comes together.

 

Brogden, Wearable Art

The Boca Raton Fine Art Show™ was voted #68 in the country in its third year, out of several thousand art shows nationwide. One does not need to be educated in art to buy art at the Boca Raton Fine Art Show™. Our jury members have already done the pre-qualifying of the artists for you, so you can be at ease knowing that any purchase made here will be quality work and that the artist in the booth stands behind it.  Whether it’s a large piece for your living or office space, or a small piece for the den or hallway, the only thing that matters is whether or not you like it and whether or not it fits your pocketbook.  Great art may be purchased at the show for as little as $20, with prices ranging from $20 to $2000 and up. There is something for everyone!

 

Kit Karbler "Spinning Walker"

With your original art, it is very unlikely that anyone else will have the same pieces, and your art will add to your own unique collection. You will see that the more artwork you buy, the more you learn.  Don’t be afraid to ask any questions, especially since the artist is right there. Little by little, and over the years, small art purchases can turn into one’s largest investment. Isn’t that a great deal?

A signature event of VIVA Florida 500, XF500 is a modern-day exploration of Florida’s coastlines and aquatic ecosystem, as seen through the eyes of waterman Justin Riney. As founder of Mother Ocean, a non-profit foundation, Riney is “creating, inspiring and empowering ocean advocates worldwide.”

 

As Riney explores Florida on a standup paddleboard, he focuses attention around the state on environmental challenges within coastal communities, as well as honoring the local history and culture.

 

As Floridians, our lives are deeply connected to the water. It’s our need for healthy oceans for our livelihoods, recreation and inspiration that makes XF500 such a powerful project. “It is our passion that leads to action, and the desire to protect what we love and believe in,” says Riney. Follow his journey at www.facebook.com/XF500.

 

The Mother Ocean Invitational Exhibit will be spotlight select pieces in various media, including paintings by Gerri Aurre, Julie Silk Beaumont, Jackson Berger, Judith Boland-Caruso, Tony Cisek, Gwen Eyeington, Duane Hatfield, Ashton Howard, Jack Keough, Deborah Lawrence, Ted Matz, Deborah Neuhaus, Lisa Leffler Riney, Manon Sander, Randall Scott, Roseanne Williams. Also included will be mixed media works by Judy Flescher, Debbie Mostel, Paul Slater and David Willison. Photographers include Tony Arruza (surfboard art), Malcolm MacKenzie, Melinda Moore, Greg Panas, Ruth Petzold and Barry Seidman.

Justin Riney’s original Mother Ocean Tahoe standup paddleboard, which he rode from Pensacola to Key West, will be on display. The 14-foot custom paddleboard carried more than 130 pounds of gear, and shows the wear and tear of hundreds of miles of rough passage. The board features an original painting of a whale’s tale by famed ocean artist Wyland.

The Northern Palm Beach County Chamber of Commerce is a not-for-profit organization whose nearly 800 members represent all aspects of business and industry. Their continuing mission is to be the unified voice of business driving sustainable growth and prosperity. The Northern Palm Beach County Chamber of Commerce focuses on the development and retention of businesses, taking an active role in business, providing meaningful member services and improving the quality of life for all residents in their community.

 

More than an art show, this event truly brings the larger community together in many different ways.  The local entertainment and attractions included a variety of ways to get involved.  The ArtiKids Area promised a space where  kids  got their hands dirty and experienced art!   They helped build a sculpture, sat at a pottery wheel, or made a piece of art from recycled materials to take home.  It was a place where children were able to expand their mind and their art!

 

Artist Demonstration Stage:  Participating artists from around the country  and the Lighthouse ArtCenter demonstrated their particular art technique, with attendees watching and asking questions of our resident experts.  They included: Hugh O’Neill, Cara McKinley, Jenny Constable, Esther Gordon, Tracey Roedl, Ted Matz, Melissa Wood, Lorraine Weiskamp, Patty Albin, Holly Foss, Phillipe Laine, and Rick Heard.

(All Reusable Trash) Challenge. The Guerilla A.R.T. Challenge is a fun art competition between artist teams, young and old and at all ability levels, to show off their upcycling skills and create art from materials normally considered trash. Challenges were held daily .

Fine Arts Area: Showcased the talents of 300 national, regional and community-based fine artists.  The show is noted for strong art sales and is rated one of the top 50 shows in the nation by Sunshine Artist Magazine.  All artists are required to be present during the show, to allow the guests to meet and get to know the artists.  Artists competed for more than $15,000 in prize and purchase awards money in the areas of ceramics, digital art, drawing/graphics/print making, emerging artists, fiber, glass, jewelry, metal, mixed media, painting, photography, sculpture and wood.

Tiny Treasures: Children ages 3 – 13 were invited to enter this exclusive kids-only gallery where they could purchase artwork donated by the exhibiting artists. Children and their families then visited and met the artists on site.  It is a perfect way to introduce to the arts for these future art patrons.  All proceeds directly benefit the Quantum House.

Youth Art Competition: Local public and private schools, grades K-12, were invited to create art works and compete for awards and prizes.  Approximately 100 finalists in this county-wide competition were on display at ArtiGras.  Their talent was amazing!
