 Barbara Powell

 

 

 

Barbara Powell has an impressive educational background. She holds a Bachelor of Arts Degree from Smith College and a Masters Degree of Arts in Policy from the University of Rhode Island. She spent many years in a demanding professional career but balanced this with her creative side, working in clay. She developed her skills , specifically in wheel throwing through classes at Broward and Palm Beach Community Colleges and the Armory Art Center. She is currently a member of the Wellington Art Society, the Ceramic League of Palm Beaches and the Cultural Council of Palm Beach County.

 

 

WASBarbaraPowell Raku #2

Raku Vessel by Barbara Powell

 

 

 

 

 

Once Barbara retired, she and her husband Jerry, began creating a wide range of ceramic art using alternative firing processes. Her vessels have a strong physical presence and distinctive profiles that are truly elegant. While in the unglazed phase, her work may appear constrained but through the process of metallic glazes, colors and the final firing process call “Raku’, the vessels are transformed, adding layered dimensions of light and movement, creating a beautiful finished piece.

 

 

 

WASBarbaraPowell Saggar #1a

Barbara tells The Rickie Report,“I work to first produce subliminal, physical features that evoke a desire to hold the piece, simply because it feels good. Creating an appealing work of art that functions through both the physical and visual realm is the highest achievement I can strive for”.

The Wellington Art Society is a non-profit charitable organization celebrating its 35th year.

ABOUT THE NATIONAL LEAGUE OF AMERICAN PEN WOMEN

 

 

The need for an organization to include women of the press at the turn of the 19th century impelled newspaper woman Marian Longfellow O’Donoghue (Henry Longfellow’s niece) to establish such a group.

 

 

She, along with 17 charter members, filed its first application for incorporation with a membership of 50 professionals including women writers, composers and artists. The League has been promoting and conducting literary, educational and charitable activities in the fields of Art, Letters and Music for the past 118 years throughout the United States.

 

 

 

The Fort Lauderdale Branch, comprise of members from the tri-county area, meets monthly for luncheons in the Broward County area from October to April each year. Artists, musicians, writers and historians present a variety of programs.

 

norma sumner

Art by Norma Sumner

 

 

 

An annual art competition open to all tri-county women artists as well as additional exhibits for Arts and Letters members are presented throughout the year. Several creative programs each year attract audiences interested in jewelry making and paper making to abstract and batik art.

 

 

 

 

 

In April, the season ends with the Annual Achievement Awards program and luncheon at which time scholarship financial awards are presented to several area high school senior women who have met the Pen Women criteria and will go on to college to study in the areas of Arts, Music and/or Writing.

Elle Schorr reflected in work by Anish Kapoor at Art Miami

 

 

“We came, we looked, we each curated our own personal collection of favorite Miami Art Week / Art Basel / Art Fair works of art. Each of us was drawn to different locations and to different works. We found connections to the kinds of work we do, or inspirations for new directions, new techniques, new materials, new ideas. One thing is for sure – no one saw it all”… Terre Rybovich, Sandra Schulman and Elle Schorr are joining together to share the work that each found most meaningful.

 

 

ArmoryartsalonInstallation view

Installation View

 

Terre Rybovich has drawn all her life. After a career in social activism, she returned to charcoal and paper with a new way of working, drawing “backward”, removing charcoal from paper with her body. The initial imprints were so dense with stories that she let them guide the drawings’ completion. That openness, plus years of figure drawing, generated a new art practice of subtlety. Her new work often incorporates nature and embodies her view that separation is an illusion. She says, “Prizing our individuality, we too often overlook our interconnectedness. My activism forged an enduring commitment to this world. It also instilled a courageous drive that I’m now channeling into art-making. I’m a daughter of Tommie Rybovich, noted boat designer and builder, and an heir to his self-guided vision and ambition for the work. It has been gratifying to have my work in the Drawing Center’s slide registry in New York since 2004. ”

This year during Miami Art Week, Terre was an artist on a mission, looking at works on paper and galleries that seem like a good home for her work. Despite the traffic, she made it to Miami Project/Works on Paper, Pulse and Art Basel, and will share some of what she found.

This December, and through the end of January, Sandra is gallery manager for the largest of the 9 venues for “100 + Degrees In The Shade”, a definitive survey exhibition of South Florida Art curated by Jane Hart, with over 170 participants, which took place in Miami and Broward Counties. The venue she manages is at 3900 N Miami Avenue. Sandra also wrote one of the three texts for the full color, hardcover 220 page book of that exhibition. “Rumble”, a film she consulted on, is premiering at the Sundance Film Festival 2016, based on an exhibition at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of the American Indian that she co-curated. She will share her experiences about the exhibition space she is managing, as well as other spaces for 100+ in the Shade and other Art Galleries and shows she found most interesting.
