The exhibition runs through March 18, 2016.

Using metaphor is common ground for the artworks of Leora Klaymer Stewart and Vicki Siegel. Stewart and Siegel present works that are an exploration of their preferred mediums of fiber (Stewart) and acrylic paint (Siegel). Both artists’ works push the boundaries of their chosen materials to new forms.

 

 

Vicki Siegel and Leora Klaymer Stewart explore those commonalities in their new joint exhibition, “Blurring Distinctions”, opening at the Art Gallery at Eissey Campus, Palm Beach State College, and at this Art Salon. The opening reception for the exhibition will be Tuesday, February 16, 5:30-7:30PM, and the exhibit runs through March 18th, 2016. They will be talking at Art Salon about the new directions they’ve been taking, and also the progression of their careers and the influences that have shaped them. They are both on the faculty of the Armory Art Center, and Vicki teaches at Old School Square School Of The Arts in Delray Beach as well.

 

 

Leora Klaymer Stewart works primarily in 3 dimensions using a variety of textile and digital photo techniques to construct her fiber forms and installations. These “sculptural” forms are constructed of natural and manmade fibrous materials to create pieces that are metaphors for the environment, specifically water as a source for life. Klaymer’s works remind us that the oceans, waterfalls, mangroves, and underwater sea life are endangered and represent the fragility of life on earth.

 

 

armoryartsalonVicki Siegel Alternate Reality

“Alternate Reality” by Vicki Siegel

 

Vicki Siegel’s paintings explore painting and photography combined. Blending the two art forms is a process that results in images that are both real and imaginary. In these colorful figurative works, a boundary becomes a metaphor for the point where two things become different. Human and natural forms are transformed by the use of acrylic paint, image transfers from Siegel’s photographs, paint skins and the addition of light. This use of materials brings new ideas to the medium of acrylic paint.

 

 

 

 

Leora Klaymer Stewart has been creating and constructing fiber artworks since the 1960’s, receiving her BFA and MFA from the School of the Art Institute, Chicago. Leora has a long history of national and international exhibitions as well as architectural commissions and has curated several exhibitions and has been awarded two National Endowment for the Arts fellowships. She has taught fiber arts at prestigious schools throughout the US. Her work has been reviewed and written about in many publications and can be seen at http//www.leorakstewart.com.

 

 

 

 

Vicki Siegel is a contemporary artist whose mixed media paintings, photography and sculpture explore the connection between memory and reality. Vicki is a full time working artist who exhibits extensively, and whose works can be found in many private collections. Previously, she was an art director and creative director in advertising in Milan, Italy, Chicago, and South Florida. Vicki Siegel has studied towards a M.F.A. at Tyler School of Art, Rome and holds a B.F.A. from the University of Illinois. She is a passionate instructor of painting. Vicki Siegel is a Golden Artist Educator (GAEP), a member of the National Assoc. of Women Artists, and a signature member of the Boca Museum Artists’ Guild among other organizations. Her studio is in Delray Beach, Florida. http//www.Vickisiegelart.com

 

 

 

ART SALONS:

ART SALONS offer stimulating conversations with other artists in the community. As a springboard to each of our explorations, professional artists from South Florida are invited to present their work, talk about what influenced them, and examine the work of influential artists showing in museums and galleries. Our discussions cover the gamut of contemporary art themes, including conceptual, cultural, socio/political, environmental, race and gender focused and aesthetic practices, the materials and techniques used to convey these ideas, and where we fit into the world of contemporary conceptual art. They’re also an opportunity to explore the practical side of being an artist, of professional development and the sharing of useful resources.

Art Salons are facilitated by Elle Schorr.

Video Archives of past salons are available at http://www.elleschorrphotography.com/
