Raquel Rub and Anabel Rub Peicher are international, award winning artists.  Raquel’s  style reflects spontaneity, while Anabel’s is more intentional.  They work in various media including acrylics, ceramics, metals, porcelain, recyclables, resins, stone, and PVC creating 2D and 3D art and sculptures.

In this collaborative exhibit, the artists’ imaginative array of shapes and forms hint at nature and fantasy, transporting the viewer to a place in which their imagination is set free to contemplate.

“Flower Series” by Raquel Rub

 

 

Raquel’s  extensive travels have influenced her artistry, making it fresh and constantly evolving.  She tells The Rickie Report, “I found sculptures irresistible to the touch and started exploring this medium expressing my creativity and spontaneity in various materials. The sinuous curves and bright colors capture the viewers imagination offering a respite from the daily routine”.  

 

 

 

She goes on to say, “When I work with stone, I feel the inner essence that seeks to be revealed, it is as if ‘voices of the stone’ are guiding my hands.”  Raquel enjoys working in an array of materials such as acrylics, aluminum, ceramics, porcelain and PVC.   Raquel is a member of the Broward Art Guild, Ceramic League of Miami, NAWA, and 2+3 The Artists Organization.

Currently one of 40 local artists displaying at Artisans on the Ave, Betty has been with this eclectic gallery for over five years. She sees the gallery as a great venue for exposing art lovers to the amazing variety of local talent. Most recently, the gallery has been having workshops and presentations by several of its artists. Betty is also the owner of The Craft Gallery on Dixie Highway in West Palm Beach. There Betty is able to explore her love of clay and glass and share her knowledge with others. The Craft Gallery offers workshops and classes by a variety of artists and has studio space available for rent by the hour. Betty loves to have local artists share their passion and expertise with others, so her gallery is a great place to expand one’s artistic skills.

 

 

 

But, it’s Betty’s history that will give you an idea of just how much of a fixture she is in the local art world. Decades ago Betty had a hand-painted clothing line named “Made Ugly by Me!” – yes, she has a terrific sense of humor! Her next exploration was clay and this self-taught artist worked with other artists to develop her own unique style. From there she ventured into ceramics, fused glass and encaustic wax, taking workshops from masters of the various crafts. Betty eventually displayed in juried art shows, created art in public places and had a presence in local art galleries. Soon she started her own gallery which grew into several businesses over the years, allowing her to spread the joy of beautiful art. President of the Ceramic League of the Palm Beaches, she also serves on local boards and arts councils.

 

 

When you talk to Betty about her craft, she sees her fused glass art as an extension of her sculptural clay work. Betty says she loves the textures and exciting interplay of light and color when she peeks into the red-hot, glowing kiln. There she sees the soft, molten liquid melting together in one brilliant form. Her biggest thrill is 15 hours later, when she opens the kiln to see the fascinating and extraordinary design that has taken place. Mixing layers of hand-cut, transparent, opaque and iridescent glass together with a little copper, her designs are truly one-of-a-kind. Betty’s fused glass faces give off so much energy that people say they make them smile.

 

 

Betty says her work is never about clay or glass. It’s about what the media can do for her art and what she is trying to express. She hopes that others are filled with the joyful light and energy that her art creates. In short, Betty is the light behind her art and she is all about spreading the light – and joy – to everyone around her.

Erica Howat “Woven Vessel”

 

 

 

Erica Howat began taking classes and workshops in 2008 to learn fiber art techniques after ending her 30-year restaurant career. Howat started her studio residency at the Annex so she could have a space to experiment with design and technique with a focus of showing her work. Drawn to organic fiber, Howat expresses her attraction to texture and form through tapestry weaving, knotting, and basket making. Materials such as yarn, paper, twine, leather, ribbon, reed and natural flora, rocks, and pods are combined into the pieces. Erica said, “Inspiration from the form, texture, and wildness of certain materials brings about a creative flow to make a piece that emphasizes the unique, natural beauty that grows around us and which may otherwise be taken for granted.”

Teapot and Cup by Marilyn Wander

                   Teapot and Cup by Marilyn Wander

 

Marilyn Wander has been a potter since 1977. She specializes in stoneware and porcelain clay, and is known for her exquisite and unique glazes, which she shares with her students. She is also experienced in raku—oxidation and pit-firing. It is unusual and important to note that Mariyln not only develops her only specialty glazes – – She also shares them with her students!

 

 

 

 

"Green Bowl" by Marilyn Wander

                               “Green Bowl” by Marilyn Wander

 

 

 

Marilyn took up pottery after noticing that she gravitated to the pottery exhibits at art shows (she is married to well-known Palm Beach watercolorist Gustav Wander). Very tactile, she fell in love with clay. Marilyn notes, “I have been firing the clay in a raku process which was originally developed in Japan. I enjoy seeing the smooth melted glazes on the red-hot pots. There is a masculine drama in the black and white tones in counterpoint to the soft pastel colors and graceful feminine shapes—an exciting and artistic duality.”

 

 

 

 

 

Marilyn’s students remark on her accessibility and skill as a teacher:
“When I began working with Marilyn, I did not know how to handle clay effectively. Now after 5 years, I was invited to exhibit my work at the local public library. Marilyn is a skillful teacher who inspires her students to reach beyond their limits. Through her patient coaching, she has enabled many of her students to get in touch with their creative side.”—Frances Levine

 

 

 

 

Marilyn trained at Florida Atlantic University, Penland School of Craft in Penland, NC, Parsons School of Design in NYC, at the 92nd St. “Y” in NYC, and at Cumberland Pottery in Teaneck, NJ. She is affiliated with the FAU Potters Guild and the NJ Designer Craftsmen. She has exhibited at Las Olas Art Festival, University of Miami—Beaux Arts, Norton Gallery, Deerfield Beach Art and Craft Show, Vero Beach Art and Craft Show, Virginia Beach Art Festival, Garrison NY Art Festival, Bergen Museum—NJ Designers Craftsmen Show, and held a one-woman show with interior designer Pajia Wald in Tenafly, NJ.

 

 

 

The Phyllis & Harvey Sandler Center at the Adolph & Rose Levis Jewish Community Center provides a welcoming environment and a sense of community for active adults of all ages to pursue high quality and enriching educational, cultural, social and recreational experiences.

Teapot and Cup by Marilyn Wander

                      Teapot and Cup by Marilyn Wander

 

 

Marilyn Wander has been a potter since 1977. She specializes in stoneware and porcelain clay, and is known for her exquisite and unique glazes, which she shares with her students. She is also experienced in raku—oxidation and pit-firing.  It is unusual and important to note that Mariyln not only develops her only specialty glazes – – She also shares them with her students!

 

 

Pottery Class at Levis JCC

Marilyn took up pottery after noticing that she gravitated to the pottery exhibits at art shows (she is married to well-known Palm Beach watercolorist Gustav Wander). Very tactile, she fell in love with clay. Marilyn notes, “I have been firing the clay in a raku process which was originally developed in Japan. I enjoy seeing the smooth melted glazes on the red-hot pots. There is a masculine drama in the black and white tones in counterpoint to the soft pastel colors and graceful feminine shapes—an exciting and artistic duality.”

 

 

 

 

 

"Green Bowl" by Marilyn Wander

                                 “Green Bowl” by Marilyn Wander

 
Marilyn’s students remark on her accessibility and skill as a teacher:
“When I began working with Marilyn, I did not know how to handle clay effectively. Now after 5 years, I was invited to exhibit my work at the local public library. Marilyn is a skillful teacher who inspires her students to reach beyond their limits. Through her patient coaching, she has enabled many of her students to get in touch with their creative side.”—Frances Levine

 

Marilyn trained at Florida Atlantic University, Penland School of Craft in Penland, NC, Parsons School of Design in NYC, at the 92nd St. “Y” in NYC, and at Cumberland Pottery in Teaneck, NJ. She is affiliated with the FAU Potters Guild and the NJ Designer Craftsmen. She has exhibited at Las Olas Art Festival, University of Miami—Beaux Arts, Norton Gallery, Deerfield Beach Art and Craft Show, Vero Beach Art and Craft Show, Virginia Beach Art Festival, Garrison NY Art Festival, Bergen Museum—NJ Designers Craftsmen Show, and held a one-woman show with interior designer Pajia Wald in Tenafly, NJ.

Medium Pocketbook by Gail Markiewicz

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”.
