ART SYNERGY is a county-wide movement to unify and promote the diverse culture of our vibrant arts community. In early 2013 a group of local artists pulled together to create Think Tank. Dedicated to finding solutions instead of dwelling on problems, the Think Tank was a forum for local artists and art advocates to come together and discuss ideas to help the local scene grow.

The first initiative was a program of events to coincide with ArtPalmBeach; in hopes that the local scene could benefit  from the popular art event much like Miami has benefited from Art Basel. Soon it was named ART SYNERGY and took shape. Locals artists Rolando Change Barrero, Craig McInnes and Freddy Hennevelt spearheaded the organization.

ART SYNERGY’s future goals include events that will happen periodically throughout the year, the addition of more participating art districts, initiatives that help unify the many diverse art entities, and talented artists that Palm Beach County has to offer. With the help of local CRAs, Public Arts Departments, the DDA in WPB and the Cultural Council of Palm Beach County, to name a few, ART SYNERGY has only one place to go… onward and upward. Currently, Rolando Chang Barrero, President and Ilene Gruber Adams, Vice President are managing the organization along with the support of many artists and art lovers in the community.

The Institute for the Arts & Education, Inc. is the associated 501(c)3 non-profit organization which focuses on visual arts, diversity, fostering art education among young students, and community enrichment.

 

 

 

 

Patty Narozny, Show Director tells us, “As part of our commitment to bring art education into the community, the Budding Artist Competition for students in grades 6-12 or ages 9-19 is integrated into the art fair. Sponsored by Institute for the Arts & Education, the competition gives budding, young artists a golden opportunity to begin learning the rules of being part of a professional art show and exhibition. It exposed young artists to the opportunity of creating his or her art for a living – doing something he/she loves to do, and, most importantly, how to do it. The young artists were encouraged to speak with the professional artists in the show, to ask them questions about participating in art shows as a career”.

 

 

 

This year’s Budding Artist contest included 40 applications from 11 area schools. There were $250 in cash awards provided to four young winners, along with a beautiful, colorful two-foot-long ribbon ( the same, largest-size-available gorgeous ribbon that the Professional Artist award winners receive). Painter, Zaki Knapen was the Budding Artist judge; criteria for judging art was based on technique/execution and originality, which is similar to the criteria for the judging of the professional artist awards. Zaki explained why he chose the winners, and provided professional consultation to the Budding Artists who inquired.
