“ This Closeup Matters “  by Danuta Rothschild

 

 

 

Danuta Rothschild tells The Rickie Report, “While I am creating my art, I step into a space that allows me to connect with the Universe…to tap into the unknown.  My intention is that the viewer will not only see carefully chosen colors, images, shadow and light, but will step with me into the magic of the moment…that they will feel the excitement of unplanned surprised that show up on the canvas.  This is the excitement that fulfills me when I am creating.”

 

 

 

Danuta Rothschild with “The World Dances”

 

 

Danuta Rothschild is an internationally known, respected award winning artist.  She was a Featured Artist at the most recent Palm Beach Art Show at the Palm Beach Convention Center (February,2021), and her works are included in “Celebrating 40 Years of Arts4All  Florida”,  a rigorously juried exhibition being shown at the Florida Capitol 22nd Floor Gallery in Tallahassee now through  March 26, 2021.  A native of Poland, she has lived in California and is now located in Stuart, FL.  Danuta’s works have been shown in prestigious museums in Poland, France, Bosnia, and the United States, where she participated in numerous exhibits in CA.  Having appeared in TV shows world wide, she has become an established artist with much respect.  Danuta’s artworks are in public and private collections throughout the world. You can see her artwork at the Elliott Museum or the Martin County Open Studio Tour taking place this weekend, March 6-7.

 

 

 

The scope of Danuta’s artistry is diverse and provocative, as they weave an historical tapestry, including her own take on the Masters.  An artist of considerable stature, Danuta created several series of paintings covering a wide range of subjects.  In her “Art About Art” series, she portrays her favorite painters (Cezanne, Picasso, Rembrandt, Van Gogh, and Modigliani) combining portraits with elements of their well-known works.  Half homage, half subtle mischief, these whimsical paintings reveal more about Danuta to the viewer.

 

 

 

Untitled by Danuta Rothschild

 

 

 

Her art provides a sense of social commentary about relevant issues, both spiritual and profound.  It is rare to see the intensity of emotion, scope of subject matter, and true understanding of the human psyche and spirit as she sees it.  Danuta can take soul-wrenching subjects and make them palatable and magical, while allowing us to ask the pertinent questions that moves us to go deeper within ourselves, revealing new understandings.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Mixed media “Cancel Culture” by Torenzo Gann

 

 

 

Torenzo Gann’s Artist Statement tells us everything about his creative process:

I am compelled.

I am driven.

I must create!

I see art everywhere. On sidewalks, reflections in storefront windows, shadow designs falling on the ground or embracing the side of a building. I see clouds as moving sculptures.

I produce thousands of photographs. Some, to use as a reference for a painting… others because they tell a story or ask a question and invite me to create a painting.

As an artist, I believe I have a responsibility to also create works of art that bring attention to important societal issues such as chemicals as food additives, toxic chemicals used in the industrialized production of crops, and genetic engineering. I’m also concerned about the current trend in America to whitewash our history in order to oblige the politically correct community.

I feel a deep responsibility and calling to create works of art that reveal and contemplate the beauty in the everyday objects we all find around us in this amazing universe created by God.

Art is everywhere! If you look for it, you’ll see it!

I believe God has created an amazing universe! As God is the original Creator, He created EVERYONE with the ability to create…everyone! If you’re one of the millions of people who believe they cannot create or are not creative, I challenge your belief and encourage you to step out of your comfort zone and CREATE something. I believe you can do it! We all start at the beginning. Let the fun begin! Soon…you’ll be seeing art everywhere.

 

 

 

“Gate Hook, Barbados” by Torenzo Gann

 

 

 

Torenzo Gann is an internationally known, award winning fine-artist, photographer, and commercial art film producer. A native of Michigan, he majored in illustration at Kendall College of Art and Design, Grand Rapids.  After successfully completing his first year, Torenzo left Kendall to pursue his own studies in the areas of painting, photography, and filmmaking.

 

 

After twenty years of creating art, Torenzo abandoned his love of creating art to confront a personal crisis caused by his alcoholism. As a result of his experience receiving treatment and getting sober, he chose to become a certified counselor so that he could help others who struggle with alcoholism and other drug addictions. When he was able to help a patient achieve a major breakthrough, it was an exhilarating moment! He recalls “nothing I’ve ever created has given me such satisfaction and joy!” It would be another twenty years later before he returned to the world of physically creating art.

 

 

 

“Tulips and Salt Air” by Torenzo Gann

 

 

Torenzo has exhibited in several national shows and has garnered attention at the exclusive ArtSynergy/ ArtPalmBeach International Art Fair by juror Eric Weiss, Curator of the Picasso Museum in Barcelona, Spain (January 2019).  In September 2019, two recent works, “Wall Switch, St. Petersburg” and “Obelisk, Bonaire” selected by Juror, Jack Rasmussen, Director, Katzen Gallery, American University, Washington, D.C. for inclusion in the Will’s Creek Exhibition of Fine Art.

 

 

 

“Above and Below” by Torenzo Gann

 

 

In November 2019, he was one of only 54 artists selected from over 500 entrants to be juried into the prestigious All Florida Art Show produced by the Martin County Cultural Arts Council. Juror, Ehern Gerhard, Arts Exhibitions Director for the Centers for the Arts in Bonita Springs, FL. commented on Torenzo’s piece, “The Last Roundup”, as a work bringing awareness and attention to the toxic chemicals used and found in America’s agriculture, and awarded it Honorable Mention. His participation in juried exhibits and awards are numerous. Torenzo is a published artist ( Millionaire Magazine 1987, Architectural Digest 1986, Northwood University 1986, Designer’s Quarterly 1984-85, Palm Beach Life 1984-85, Kodak Quarterly Report 1977) and his artistry can be found in private, corporate and public collections.  Torenzo’s ceaseless quest for seeing and creating art is his unconstrained passion. He eagerly awaits to see what the universe offers.  Torenzo is also affiliated with the American Impressionist Society. His work can be seen at the Elliott Museum and the Martin County Open Studio Tour taking place this weekend, March 6 & 7.

“Cliffside” by Featured Artist, Lee Passerella

 

 

 

Last March, 2020, the Artists of Palm Beach County hoped to begin their season with one exhibit after another in the ArtWorks Gallery. The membership exhibit opened on March 6, 2020 to an extremely receptive, huge crowd. Less than two weeks later the Covid-19 shutdown began and ended exhibitions for the rest of the year.

 

 

As a result, the organization is delighted to have another opportunity with the  “STARTING AGAIN” juried exhibition. A call went out to the membership for submissions of original work of any subject in all media, 2D or 3D. ArtWorks Gallery is a fabulous place to show off this talented group of artists.

 

 

Last year the Judge for Awards, famed Palm Beach artist Sandra Thompson, did such an excellent job, that the group is thrilled that she has agreed to be Judge again. Sandra currently has a SOLO exhibit at the Cultural Council of Palm Beach County, 601 Lake Avenue, Lake Worth, which runs through March 12, 2021.

So that bracelet you are wearing can trace its origins to some Neanderthal roaming the forest. Sounds crazy, doesn’t it? It makes sense when you realize the origination of jewelry spans many thousands of years. Jewelry is one of the oldest archeological artifacts – shell beads from the Neanderthal area around 115,000 years ago were some of the earliest discoveries. Throughout history, jewelry has been a universal form of adornment – to show status or rank, as a recognition of affiliation (religious, political) and as a symbol of personal meaning (love, mourning, luck). Thanks to the ingenuity of the Greeks adding gemstones to gold in 1600 BC, jewelry has evolved into a stunning form of art. Fast forward to today, and there is an endless variety of jewelry adorning our bodies, our fashion, our homes. Two local artisans who have embraced this art form are being featured in the upcoming event,Glass, Jewelry and Wearable Art at The Craft Gallery in West Palm Beach.

 

 

 

 

Rickie Leiter,publisher of – you guessed it – The Rickie Report, will be showcasing some of her beautiful jewelry at this event. Most of her pieces incorporate a variety of gemstones, many with a central, unusual focal piece to complement the stones. Her one-of-a-kind pieces have been sold in museum shops, local galleries and wearable art boutiques. It’s no surprise that Rickie landed squarely in the middle of South Florida’s local art scene. Raised in a decidedly creative household with an affinity for community activism and an appreciation of nature, she has explored many avenues during her artistic journey. From art consultant and board member of an international organization to special needs advocate and online publisher, Rickie’s creativity shines in her art.

 

Irene Jalowayski, an accomplished glass artist in Palm Beach County, will thrill you with her exquisite jewelry using glass and metals. Working in fused glass, cast glass and mixed media, Irene has an incredible eye for color and style. Her use of dichroic glass adds even more color explosion to her pieces. In addition to her unique jewelry designs, you’ll see her creative style emerge in her glass pieces – sculptures, vases, platters, Judaica, candlesticks and so much more. Always an art lover and collector, Irene started “playing” in fused glass 15 years ago, studying with master glass artists in the area. What started as a hobby has evolved into a passion, and it shows! The winner of numerous awards, her work has been seen in galleries, art shows and exhibitions around South Florida.
