Ed Muñoz tells The Rickie Report, “It is a very special privilege for me to share my photography with all who attend. I have so enjoyed my travels and chronicling the wonders and beauty of our planet. I was especially moved by my visit to Antarctica. It is a place like no other on Earth.

 

 

“Passage” by Ed Muñoz

He goes on to say, “But even there, the effects of climate change are starting to cause serious challenges to the wildlife. I invite all to come and enjoy the images of the planet we all share. A place we must strive to keep healthy; because if we don’t it will not only be the wildlife that suffers… do not ask for whom the bell tolls, it tolls for thee”.

“On The Street” by lou anne colodny

 

 

 

 

lou anne colodny investigates contemporary issues concerning man/woman as he/she is ruffled by nature and society. Borrowing imagery from the internet, newspapers and magazines, she collages, manipulates materials, and uses her imagination to create her videos and drawings. In many of her works, she assumes faux personalities and thereby explores differing professions, values and actions that individuals pursue in their life journeys. She is fascinated by the psychology of life and how people react to it.

 

 

“Mindful” by lou anne colodny

 

 

lou anne colodny’s experiences in dance, theater and museum administration have greatly informed her videos, drawings and photographic work. She was a recipient of the 2008 South Florida Cultural Consortium Fellowship for Broward County and Best in Show for her videos in the 2005 Boca Museum of Art’s 54th Annual All Florida Exhibition. colodny was the founding director of MoCA, Museum of Contemporary Art in North Miami, Florida and director of its precursor, COCA for 15 years. Her studio is at Under the Bridge Art Space / Bridge Red Studios, North Miami, where she curates exhibitions of Miami Artists who are not represented by galleries in the front two spaces.

 

“On The Street Where You Live” by lou anne colodny

 

 

 

colodny’s videos have been included in five (5) Optic Nerve programs at MoCA; The Bridge in Carol Jazzar presents; the American Arena Video Wall; the Unaffiliated Artist Exhibition at the Living Room, Miami Design District; The House; The “NO” show, Beauty or Not curated by Carol Jazzar and the video programs of –SCOPE MIAMI, 2005 and –SCOPE NY 2006. She was juried into the 2007 Art and Culture Center / Hollywood All Florida exhibition. In 2008, she was the featured artist in their project room.

“Before The Storm” by Phoenix

 

 

“With this exhibition we are inviting viewers to slow down and enjoy the moment,” said Juliana Forero, Ph.D., BaCA’s gallery curator. “Phoenix has a great understanding of how light and timing work in photography. It’s evident that for some of the photographs exhibited, she waited for the ‘decisive moment’ to quote French humanist photographer Cartier-Bresson; working the composition in her brain and waiting for the ‘it’ that would make the photo worth the shot.”

 

“Early Morning Fog” by Phoenix

 

 

The photographer, who goes only by her first name, established a love of nature as a child during family vacations to national parks. As she matured, she developed an exceptional talent and a passion to help protect nature and wildlife. Phoenix tells The Rickie Report, “Being a nature photographer is a mystical experience, like a meditation of light — color, texture, structure, pattern, and composition — it awakens an inner peace and knowingness. With each image, it is my desire that viewers are inspired to love, cherish and protect the fragile beauty and wonder that is nature as they reconnect with that inner peace”.

 

“Grace” by Phoenix

 

 

She says, “For me, preserving nature and wilderness areas is not a luxury, but a necessity for the human spirit. In protecting the world’s nature and wildlife, the environment, we are really protecting the family of humanity. The importance of nature is more than a scientific necessity for creating air, clean water and producing food. It is a sacred necessity for healing and bringing peace to the human soul.”

 

“Twilight” by Phoenix

 

 

 

About Phoenix:

Phoenix has translated her depth of experience in leadership and community engagement for large, public-sector organizations into her career as an award-winning, fine art photographer as well as leader of art organizations participating in public art. For Phoenix the extraordinary beauty of nature and wilderness are a wonder. Attempting to fix them in time is her passion; photography is her art. Known for her painterly approach to composition, light, color and texture to capture the soul of her subjects in her photography, her works have been honored in numerous juried exhibitions, showcased in solo exhibitions, including Everglades National Park Gallery and Listowel, Ireland’s Olive Stack Gallery, featured in magazines and calendars worldwide and can be found in private collections in America and Europe. She is the recipient of several awards including the Broward Cultural Council’s Creative Investment Program Grant two times and Best in Landscape at the International Photography Juried Competition as well as the Olive Stack Gallery AIR. Professionally, Phoenix serves as president of National League of American Pen Women, Fort Lauderdale Branch and Project COAT and is a principal in the Innovative Public Art Group. A native Miamian, Phoenix lives and works in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

Kirsten has traveled the world, and as she continues her journeys, we are luck enough to be able to come along by seeing her photography, reading her books and listening to her lectures.  When Kirsten explores, she spends long periods of time in the natural environment.  “I spent three years wandering the wilds of Borneo, Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam, Australia, New Zealand, Laos and taught in China”.  Her blog entries are not like reading a novel – you feel like you are there with her!

Internationally renown artist Faten Safieddine will show her short film “La Chrysalide” and talk about her work. This lecture is free and open to the public. In a dreamlike style, this film shows the struggle of women to extricate themselves from the yoke of the cultural and social conditioning and achieve freedom and fullness.

 

 

 

 

Born in Lebanon, Ms. Safieddine lives and works in Marrakesh and Paris. She was educated at the Sorbonne and the Université d’Abidjan and has shown her work throughout the Middle East, France and Canada.

 

Her photographic work explores the themes of the shadows, reflections and transparencies and has been the subject of several international exhibitions.  In addition to working as a photographer and film maker, Ms Safieddine is a journalist, art critic and writer focusing on culture and history. In 1988 the Metropolitan Museum of Art commissioned her to create a documentary on the restoration of the Minbar in the Grand Mosque of Koutoubia. The documentary received the Image d’Or prize in France.

In addition, a reception, free and open to the public and complete with cash bar, light fare and live music, is held in honor of each featured artist on the opening night of their exhibit. This offers patrons the opportunity to meet in person the creative individuals whose works of art are on display.

 

Civic Center Recreation Manager Kelly Tiger and the Public Art Advisory Board select each artist and the artwork that will be displayed for each exhibit. City of Port St. Lucie team members install the exhibit, carefully designing the look and feel of the space using the wide variety of display pieces available.

Artists are asked to provide a biography, artist statement and at least ten examples of their current work. There is no cost for the artist to apply and if selected, the exhibit and reception are also free of charge. Once the City of Port St. Lucie has juried all works, the artists may be contacted to extend a contract to exhibit in the Art Gallery. Applications are accepted throughout the year.  For more information about the Civic Center Art Gallery, contact Civic Center Recreation Manager Kelly Tiger at (772) 807-4499 or email her at ktiger@cityofpsl.com.
