One of a Kind Bracelets by Laura Kay Whiticar Darvill

 

 

 

Laura Kay tells The Rickie Report, “My jewelry artist journey started about ten years ago on a cruise ship.  Some friends on the cruise talked me into going to a jewelry class even though I was completely uninterested. I went with the group, and was convinced I would not enjoy it. We made a simple pair of earrings and, amazingly, I was “hooked”.  I came home and immediately started taking classes , including the William Holland Lapidary School of the Arts”.

 

 

“Combining several media often creates interesting results.  I enjoy the challenge of working with silver clay, forming and soldering silver sheet, and wire wrap along with the objects such as gemstones”. 

 

 

 

Wire Wrapped pendants by Laura Kay Whiticar Darvill

 

 

TRR:   Please tell us about the variety of elements you use in creating your one-of-a-kind jewelry pieces.  

LKWD:

There is a variety of processes that can be incorporated into making jewelry.  After participating in quite a few classes in various methods, I came to the conclusion that two of the areas especially captured my interest:  wire wrapping and silver metal clay.

Wire wrapping jewelry is made using no solder, heat or glue.  The design of the wire is incorporated into the jewelry and can be the focal point of the piece.  Wire wrapped jewelry allows me to incorporate a variety of objects such as beads, pearls, gemstones, coins, crystals, beach coral, shells, sea glass, and fused glass into jewelry.  I really enjoy custom orders, and my favorite custom orders are those in which I incorporate meaningful objects into jewelry especially for someone.  These have included a small meteorite, sea glass found on a special beach, and a 25th anniversary commemorative coin.  Unless I have a specific request for another type of wire, I use sterling silver or gold filled wire for the wire wrapped jewelry.

 

Silver Clay pendants by Laura Kay Whiticar Darvill

 

 

 

Silver clay is formed from very tiny particles of pure silver along with some liquid and filler. The clay must be formed and shaped within about 10 minutes as it hardens quickly as it air dries.  When it is fully dry, it is hard (similar to pottery) and can be refined and embellished.  It is then baked in a kiln at 1650 degrees for about two hours.  After cooling, it can be polished and finished with patina (if desired). The result is a pure silver piece that is about 85% of the original size.  

 

My favorite type of jewelry using silver clay is my menagerie of animals, especially sea creatures which I have made.  This collection includes Bill the Pelican, Oscar the Octopus, and, my newest, Fiona the Flamingo.

 

 

 

 

Unique wire wrapped pendant by Laura Kay Whiticar Darvill

 

 

TRR:  Each piece of your jewelry seems to tell a story!

LKWD:

 

I have two main objectives in my jewelry making.  First, I enjoy creating and implementing new designs!!  The potential is limitless!!  Secondly, it is always a pleasure when people come up and tell me how much they enjoy wearing my jewelry.  Sometimes they seek me out at an event to show me they are wearing some of “my” jewelry.  Frequently they will explain how they have specific outfits they wear or occasions they attend wearing my jewelry.  If they feel special, then I do also!   I am really having so much fun learning new skills and creating jewelry!!

 

I really enjoy making custom jewelry.  I have gemstones, cabochons, coral, sea glass, and beads available for use in jewelry.  If you wish to come to the studio and pick out objects to be used for a custom piece, please contact me.  In addition, I make custom pieces using your items.  If you have a memento or treasure that has been sitting in a drawer or on a shelf, consider having it turned into “wearable art.”  The possibilities are endless: maybe you have a cherished stone, sea glass, or shell from the beach, or a coin from another country, beads from a special bracelet, or even a ceramic piece from a broken bowl that could be used as a pendant or incorporated into a bracelet or earrings.  Almost anything that is a reasonable size can be used in your special piece of jewelry. 

 

 

My jewelry incorporates sterling silver, pure silver and jewelers gold into pendants, earrings, bracelets, rings and necklaces.  This often features gemstones, fused glass, lamp work beads and other materials. The creation of custom jewelry is a special joy for me. Often this means taking someone’s favorite memento and turning it into an object that can be worn and enjoyed.  Much of my work is influenced by a passion for the ocean. 

 

 

 

Wire wrapped pendants by Laura Kay Whiticar Darvil include fused glass, semi-precious stones, sea glass and coral.

 

 

TRR:  You are a creative role model for people who think they can’t create!

LKWD:

I began creating jewelry ten years ago.  I have attended the William Holland Lapidary School of the Arts classes for eight years, plus several classes at the St. Lucie Rock and Gem Club, as well as participated in several national workshops and convention. I’m a member of the St. Lucie Rock and Gem Club, the Martin Artisans Guild, and the Arts Council of Martin County, all local organizations promoting the creation of art.  I’m also a member of the Alliance for Metal Clay Arts Worldwide (AMCAW) and the Southeastern Federation of Mineralogical Society.  My father, Curt Whiticar, was an oil painter and a boat builder.  His influence included the importance of hard work and perseverance, creativity in art, and enjoyment of nature.  He was very interested in art and enjoyed making suggestions to me regarding my work.  While my children were growing up, I had a career as a mathematics teacher.  After retirement, I learned sign language and enjoyed traveling (especially if it included a boat or ship.)

Ursula Fernandez Is Featured Artist At Perrine Community House At Palmetto Bay. Meet The Artist At The Opening Reception November 16

Meet Featured Artist, Ursula Fernandez at the Perrine Community House at Palmetto Bay on Saturday, November 16. The public is welcome to this exhibit, “The Story of Many”, showing Ursula’s vast body of work.

The Rickie Report shares the details and some sneak peeks.  Don’t miss the opportunity to meet this gracious and talented artist!

 

 

 

 

U R S U L A       F E R N A N D E Z

 

SOLO  EXHIBIT:

 

“THE   STORY   OF   MANY”

Opening Reception

Saturday November 16

6:30- 8:30 PM

Palmetto Bay

900 Perrine Ave

Palmetto Bay, FL

 

 

 

 

 

Ursula Fernandez shares these words from her heart about this exhibit, “My tribute and sincere gratitude goes out to my family, mentor, friend artists, teachers, designers and buyers, all those that have revolved in my world of art, whom have been a source of energy for my creations. When at work, I dive into a world of my own, where I find peace, contentment and great satisfaction”.

 

She goes on to say, “My love working with oils has been because I can express an infinite variety of mixed emotions and beauty. Every time I have picked up a brush I have learned something new and have expanded my artistic horizons. The time has come to retire from my professional life as an artist, I will not put the brush down entirely, I will be always open to sit and give to art lovers, that which I have learned in my years practicing art. I will always be happy to hear from you, if you need help, maybe advise, and why not a special order or just to say hello, Let me share with you this one of my favorite quote from unknown source: ‘Art is a fascinating and amazing vehicle of self-expression. It is a rewarding journey of learning and discovery. Art is an adventure motivated by the heart, with an understanding of the process developed through practice’”.

 


Ursula Fernandez at her easel

 

 

Ursula was born in Havana, Cuba and began sketching at the age of 15.  Her neighbor, Felix de Cossio, a recognized portrait painter, was a major influence on Ursula.  As she observed him at work, he taught her valuable tips and techniques.  She tells The Rickie Report, “This planted a deep seated love for painting”.

 

 

Artist, Ursula Fernandez

 

 

For many years, Ursula dedicated her life to her career and family, raising four children.  She never forgot her passion for painting.  In 1979, she picked up a brush and followed her heart. By 1981, she completed her first portrait!  Coming from a family of artists, she was eager to strike out on her own.

 

 

“Two Ballet Dancers” by Ursula Fernandez

 

Years later, while living in Florida, never leaving her art, she enrolled in a course taught by her long time childhood neighbor, Felix de Cossio!  He had made a successful career painting portraits of famous socialites in New York City.  Spending more time with her mentor, Ursula acquired the techniques and qualities that would serve her well throughout her own career as an artist.

 

 

“The Street Vendor” by Ursula E. Fernandez

Ursula tells us, “The subject caught my attention, a street vendor in one of the Caribbean Islands, I kept the photo to create my painting.  I was drawn to her facial expression, I knew then it would be a challenge to capture her spirit, her pleasant smile regardless that she is selling bananas under the hot sun.  Her eyes are covered by the shade of her straw hat, her rouged hands holding the wooden box.  I created a background showing the hustle and bustle of the market place.  The Street Vendor became the recipient of an Honorable Mention Award.

 

 

One can see that Ursula’s ballet and dance teaching experience enhances her appreciation for and discernment for typical details when she paints these particular subjects.  The majority of her work is inspired by her tropical roots.  Her paintings are rich in texture and color.  Her own warmth comes through each piece.

 

“The Nap” by Ursula Fernandez

 

 

While she still favors painting with oil, Ursula takes life by the hand and is eager to try new techniques and mediums.  She has great success with her portraitures and many of her florals are dedicated to endangered plants.  She is an award-winning artist and many of her pieces can be found in private collections. 

 

 

Ursula has also painted murals at several local sites. She tells us, “I love painting and teaching art, which has been my life long passion. Born from a family of artists and with the inspiration of my neighbor, whom I watched while at work, I was able to pursue this dream at a much later stage in my life. Please come in and read all about it, browse my portfolio, and if you like what you see, drop me an email, I will surely appreciate it!”

 

“Roses in a Wooden Vase” by Ursula Fernandez

Ursula offers painting classes and is available for portraits.  When one is commissioned, she likes to meet the person and also works from 3-4 photos.  She is a Signature Member of the Wellington Art Society and is happy to be painting in her own studio.

“Waterways Blue and Orange” by Patricia Lappin

 

 

To Patricia Lappin, every painting is an adventure!  When you visit the Delray Beach Library to see her exhibit, you will understand what she means. I look at her paintings and wonder where that path in the painting may take me next! She says, ” Since moving to Florida my color palette has become brighter and more vibrant. My subject is still the natural world expressed in both abstracts and more recognizable images.  However, I am taking more license with the colors and simplifying the shapes to imply and intuit instead of record an actual scene as I have been doing for the last 20 years”.

 

Patricia goes on to explain, “Before Florida I lived in Arkansas for 20 years, exploring the hills and waterways with Plein Air and studio work in oil. That is the THEN.  NOW I am sketching and taking photos at Green Cay and the Loxahatchee Nature Preserve to inspire the new acrylic paintings.  The contrast is very interesting when placed side by side.  Our life circumstances and a new environment have great influence on how we see the world around us”.

 

 

 

“Winter Trail” by Patricia Lappin

 

 

 

 

Patricia tells The Rickie Report, ” Enjoy the beauty around you.  My desire to create was very strong and drawing was my refuge, my sanctuary.  It was an inner compulsion to be separate from the world sometimes.  I was content to spent hours drawing leaves, branches and bugs. A school field trip to the St. Louis Art Museum opened my eyes – adults took painting and drawing seriously, what a revelation”!

 

 

From age 10 to 14, she studied painting on Saturday mornings with a high school art teacher.  After high school, she attended SMS in Springfield, Mo. for 4 semesters, taking every available art course, intro to design, color, etc., but Patricia only wanted to learn to paint like the paintings she had seen at the St. Louis Art Museum and that was not happening.  She met her husband, married and became a mother. 

 

 

“Winter Trail” by Patricia Lappin

 

 

Patricia continues, “I was still painting, but unsure of the new “adult artist” me.  We moved to Fairfield, CT. near NYC.  Caesar Cirigliano became my teacher and mentor for 5 years.  Working with only black, white, yellow ocher and burnt sienna for the first 3 years, he taught me portrait, landscape and still life painting.  We spent many hours at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC studying the masters. Working with Ceasar was the greatest education I could have.  From 1970 to 1975 he led me from an insecure young adult struggling to believe in my artist-future to a confident artist in multiple mediums.  As he was leaving for Florida to retire, I ask him “who would be my teacher now?”  His answer formed my future.  “Don’t you know?  You are the teacher now.  You have the foundation now.”  When I began teaching I used my notes from the 5 years of study with Caesar.  I still use them today”.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“Waterways in Yellow” by Patricia Lappin

 

 

 

 

Patricia opened her first studio in 1980 and began teaching and exhibiting in the tri-state area.  Her family moved to Ft. Smith AR in 1996.  “Since then I have been represented by galleries in Kansas City MO, Scottsdale AZ, and Van Buren AR.  I have shown my work at the Ft. Smith Art Center and the Center for Art and Education many times.  I teach private classes and workshops. My paintings are in many private and public collections”.

 

 

In 2016 the Lappins moved to Boca Raton FL, where Patricia joined the Plein Air Palm Beach group, exploring new scenes and making new friends, seeking out galleries and other venues for showing/selling her paintings and teaching.  She is on the faculty at The New Studio for the Visual Arts in Jupiter, FL. and a member of the Palm Beach Watercolor Society. Patricia has won numerous awards for her artistry and her works can be found in private as well as public collections.

Gabriela tells The Rickie Report, “Colorful forms, lines, women’s figures and textures are combined to create art pieces that express a constant search for freedom. The paintings, video animations and music transport the viewer/listener to spaces where the skies and times are endless. The artist invites him/her to “become one with nature, the Universe and the Light”.

She continues, ” I question the systems and traditional myths and am interested in finding the Divine without necessarily practicing the rituals stated by any specific doctrine. I defy the traditional roles of women in society, writing my own story — a new story — whereby the women in my paintings travel alone and unwrapped from traditional roles…”

A Solo Exhibition

By Marcos Conde,

A Prolific Public Artist Who Creates Inspiration in Communities

 

 

Opening reception:

August 2

6  –  10 pm

During Old Town Untapped Downtown

Exhibit is available through August 2 – September 27, 2019

 

 

Artist, Marcos Conde

 

 

 

 

“Marcos’ art has adorned cityscapes, clothing, car wraps and interiors throughout the United States,” said Phyllis Korab, Cultural Affairs Director. “We saw his amazing talent on display at ArtLit earlier this year, and we are delighted to have his work on display at BaCA.”

 

 

Conde didn’t always plan on being an artist. As a child, he immigrated with his parents to the U.S. and would daydream and doodle in class but never took a formal art class while in school. He grew up surrounded by blue collar workers, trying to make a living in a country where they didn’t even understand the language. Because there were no artists in his family or around him, he never thought he would go on to relentlessly pursue the arts for himself in the future.

 

 

 

 

It was after high school, while Conde was taking some classes at a local college, he decided to take a drawing class just for leisure. This class incited the curiosity to pursue a new direction in life. It was also during this time he visited an art gallery for the first time. He subsequently became obsessed with drawing his ideas on paper.

 

His path towards artistic freedom didn’t come without roadblocks however, and after a year, he dropped out of school, ended up incarcerated then completely broke, between homelessness and sleeping on friends’ couches while battling a drug habit.  Deciding he would rise above this situation, he arrived at a rehab center in South America. Part of the program was to use art as therapy. It was here that he discovered the magic that is painting. Since then, he has turned the negativity of the past into a positive outlook he can share with others. He has been obsessed with developing the skills to visually alter his surroundings for a positive change.

 

Marcos has since created public art for different communities through private businesses, schools, and city commissions. He has worked with the arts organization Art N Soul to teach art to underprivileged children in Broward County and has also done workshops for at-risk youth with the Broward Sheriff’s Office.

 

Conde has created art installations for Broward, Miami, and West Palm Beach art events and businesses. His client commissions include city municipalities, public schools, corporate offices, retail stores, and different sized businesses and homes in the U.S.  Highly influenced by the impact of public art on his own life, he has spent the last few years using his experience and creative ability to design and install artwork that integrates into different public spaces. His initiative was to use his creative ability to realize artwork that is available for different neighborhoods to enjoy.

A.J. Brown tells The Rickie Report, “I paint whatever moves me.  When I spend time to capture and visually record whatever appeals to my emotional senses at specific moments in my life, the intention is to share that experience with the viewer. My portraits are few and personal, usually of different icons, family members and close friends. Some of my landscapes are, in essence, also portraits, revealing protected treasures, unique geographical locations, or ways of living. My still life pieces typically reflect atmospheric and philosophic statements, and my abstracts reflect my freedom to commit to the journey from a blank canvas to what was created.”

 

 

Exploring the exhibition, visitors are taken on a journey through time and space with each painting. The pieces cover a wide range of subject matter and artistic genres, including portrait, still life, landscape and abstract.   “We are so gratified to be able to exhibit the very vivid and fresh art works of A.J. Brown,” said Phyllis Korab, Cultural Affairs Director. “His vibrant work offers glimpses into his own passionate nature and brings Pompano Beach a burst of Caribbean energy and flavor. The fact that he’s also a talented vocalist is icing on the cake!”

 

 

 

A.J. Brown discovered the world of art when he attended Cornwall College in Jamaica. The ensuing four years were most creatively stimulating and rewarding for him as he learned to balance his visual art and musical talents in a symbiotic relationship. Brown attended art classes during the week, and on weekends he performed as a cabaret artist in multiple hotels along Jamaica’s north coast.

 

 

Brown’s artistic talents got a boost when he was accepted to attend the Jamaica School of Art at Cultural Training Complex (now renamed The Edna Manley College for the Visual and Performing Arts. He then moved to Las Vegas and was graduated from UNLV with another degree, a B.A. in Art, and his paintings and drawings were exhibited in a number of galleries and exhibitions in Las Vegas.

 

 

After graduation, Brown returned to Jamaica, and alongside his attention to performance and recording, his commitment to visual arts remained constant. His paintings and drawings were included in several exhibitions there. In 2003, he mounted his first one-man exhibition at The Jamaica Pegasus Hotel in Kingston. Brown is now firmly established as an artist whose works are being exhibited alongside the many of the masters of Jamaican visual art, and his own brand of art exhibition he calls Visuals in Performance or VIP enjoys a robust following. The Jamaica Tourist Board invited him to be a part of the 2006 Houston International Festival, and Brown has also been featured at The Liguanea Festival of Fine Art and Photography (Jamaica) and a participating artist at the annual four day Montego Bay Chamber of Commerce Art Expo.

Caren Hackman, artist

 

Caren Hackman tells The Rickie Report, “My deep spiritual connection to the yoga practice set me on the course for creating the YogaPainter works. A painful injury sidelined me for several years during which I felt angry and depressed. Yoga saved my life! As I learned more about the physical aspects of yoga, a personal evolution, a catharsis, began. Yoga practice help me recover and re-engage with life. As the spiritual essence of the practice became clear, I was drawn to share that passion through my art”.

 

 

 

 

This spiritually motivated series resists the confines of framed canvas and is hung like a classic Asian scroll. The yoga pieces are all on canvas.  Caren’s personal yoga practice helps her feel more connected to the natural world. “Creation of art work that combines challenging poses with images of the nature’s leafy growth or the eclipse comes almost instinctively to me. I hope you find inspiration from this and spread the joy of inner peace”.

Michael D’Amato “Two Women at Hagia Sophia”

 

 

 

Michael D’Amato takes the viewer on a journey through shadow, shape, and structure with his photographs.  What does he see that others miss?  He tells The Rickie Report, “Light, shadow and atmospheric change trick the eye and cause an ordinary structure to appear both static and dynamic”. Michael celebrates construction, geometry, and architecture.  He brings the viewer along as he travels the globe.

 

 

Michael D’Amato “Queensborough Bridge NYC”

 

 

Sometimes, Michael’s perspective makes us wonder where in the world he found such a place – and how we can go there!  His knack for engaging  viewers in this dialogue is wondrous.  When artwork gets you to ask questions, the artist is doing a good job!

 

 

Michael D’Amato “Circular Path”

 

 

 

Michael shows us how buildings, as a whole and as parts-of-the-whole, have their own beauty and mystery.  He maximizes natural light’s effect on moving clouds and water. Instinctively, we are aware, but rarely do we take the time to appreciate it!  

 

 

Michael D’Amato  “Dervishes”

 

 

Michael’s travels through Southeast Asia and India are particularly fascinating, as he takes a real slice of life and makes one photograph sing with a story.  He has won awards in juried exhibits and his photographs have been in several SOLO exhibits.  He often quotes American sculptor Arthur Carter, “Only squares and circles, lines and ellipses can elegantly explain and simplify the complex meaning of life.”

Sculpture, “Warrior Looking Left” by Stephen ‘Shoosty’ Shooster

 

 

 

A prolific artist in multiple mediums, Stephen ‘Shoosty’ Shooster is eager for viewers to understand the background of each of his art pieces.  From sculpture, to painting, to digital art, the story brings even more life to these artworks!

 

Shooster tells The Rickie Report, “Creating harmony out of chaos is a driving factor in my artwork. I thrive on movement, activity and especially music. Painting allows me to share the beauty I see in nature combined with my mind’s eye. The simple act of painting slows my mind to let it rest. In this way, chaos and calm become interdependent and bring balance to my life and my work”.

 

“My media changes according to the pace at which I wish to work. I keep many projects in motion at the same time. I stagger the works according to completion times ranging from hours and days to months and years. It takes long periods of time to get the big projects completed. Big projects need time to dry between coats, and patience to resolve composition, form, and colors. It helps to have small wins along the way to keep your mind sharp and cheerful”.

 

 

He explains, “I’m constantly evolving, experimenting with the latest technology while on a daily basis experiencing the hand tools and materials used by the Masters. It is critical to understand the nature of different forms of paint, brushes and skills when approaching technology. Every medium, as well as what I listen to and what is happening in my life, affects what ends up on the canvas, especially the dog hair if I’m not careful”. 

Most of Shooster’s work starts with an intimate drawing. He uses standardized on 14” x 20”, Fabriano, Acquarello, cold pressed, 100% cotton, grana fina, 140 lbs. watercolor paper. “It may sound quirky, but I always cut the last inch of the watercolor paper off, so I end up using 14” x 19” sheets, a size that feels right to me. I start by drawing whatever I see. Musicians are my favorite models. I look at my subjects very carefully while drawing. I pay extra attention to the lighting, especially the nuances that happen to occur. There is always something that I didn’t expect. I believe you can’t really see what you’re looking at until you try to draw it. It takes patience, but if you take the time, you will be rewarded. Whatever you are looking at, in time, will unpeel itself and reveal its essence”.

 

 

“After the initial drawing, I intentionally practice letting go to see where my mind can take it. My inspiration might be anything. I continuously study all kinds of art and visit museums the world over.  As a seasoned artist, I can also lean upon an extensive personal library of completed works and concepts for ideas. For instance, I recently did a drawing of trees with Spanish Moss hanging over them in North Florida. The following day I went to a music concert, brought the same drawing pad and did a drawing of the musicians on top of that landscape, then I integrated the two. The result is a dreamscape, called Gypsy Tears”. (http://www.shoosty.com/portfolio_single/236)

 

 

This exhibition features Shooster’s original artwork as a detailed overview of the artist’s portfolio from the last few decades. Shooster’s bold use of color, brazen brush strokes and surreal sculptural composition explore the artist’s inspirations ranging from his Jewish heritage and studies, to the impact of music and his unique personal perspective.

 

 

 

Shooster says, “Art is fundamentally about exploration. Through my life’s work, I bring the realm of possibilities to the forefront of my mind. This exercise loosens my thinking, like yoga for the body, so that when I approach a problem, I keep the solutions broad. It makes a big difference to approach challenges in your life with an open mind. By imbuing my lifelong love for learning into each creation, I create my work to inspire. If I had to describe my work in one word I would use the verb, ‘curative,’ meaning, ‘to make better,’ as in, let’s make the world better”.

 

 

While Shooster’s influence hones in on cultural history and primitive aesthetic, his evolving practice is anything but stagnant. Utilizing today’s advancement in technology as a medium in and of itself, the artist showcases with a mix of handcrafted skills and digital innovation.  

 

 

Stephen Shooster, known as ‘Shoosty’ was born in 1958 in Chester, Pennsylvania. He received his Bachelor of Fine Arts with a minor in Architecture, in 1986 at the University of Florida.  Shooster has enjoyed a successful corporate career by day and a prolific painting career by night.  He is also the author of ‘The Horse Adjutant’, a story about a survivor of the Nazi Holocaust, and is featured in Marquis’ Who’s Who in American Art.
