Radical    Jewelry    Makeover!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Those tangled chains, unmatched earrings and banged up bracelets sitting at the bottom of jewelry boxes around the South Florida area are exactly what jewelry artists participating in ​Radical Jewelry Makeover – South Florida ​want to get their creative hands on. Last Fall, RJM – South Florida had a call for donations of broken, unwanted, lost pieces of jewelry and the community definitely responded! They received 115 donations of jewelry for the students and artists to use as their raw materials for the made-over jewelry pieces that will be on display at the LAC gallery beginning March 19, 2020. Sales benefit student scholarships and the Ethical Metalsmiths’ efforts to educate and connect people with responsibly sourced materials.

 

 

RJM draws attention to the creativity and skills of local jewelry designers, reveals the stories behind their personal collections and encourages re-consideration of their habits of consumption. Currently, materials used in jewelry production are sourced from some of the poorest countries in the world, sacred lands and disputed territories. Often this sourcing comes at a great cost to the environment. At the Lighthouse ArtCenter in Tequesta, RJM brings together volunteer “miners,” who dig out and donate their old jewelry, with volunteer jewelers and students, working together as refiners and designers to collaborate on an exhibition of re-made jewelry.

Did you know Titanium is mined in the State of Florida? Heavy minerals like Titanium have been mined in Florida since 1916.  Titanium can be found in the sand of many of the beaches that line our State and is used for a variety of things from paint and makeup to helicopters and spacecraft.  Today, the EPA estimates that hard rock mining is the most toxic industry in the United States. Additionally, Earthworks reports that an estimated 70% of the gold mined each year is used for jewelry, and that a single gold ring leaves more than 20 tons of mine waste.  Ethical Metalsmiths, an artist run non-profit organization seeks to galvanize mining reform efforts by staging an “alternative supply chain” and worked with the Lighthouse ArtCenter with the Armory Art Center and Resource Depot to bring their successful project, Radical Jewelry Makeover ​​to South Florida.

 

 

 

About Ethical Metalsmiths  is a non-profit organization whose mission is to encourage social change that values jewelry made with ethically sourced materials. They do this by educating people about irresponsible mining, promoting transparency in jewelry supply chains and highlighting the collective efforts of jewelers actively changing their practices. ​Ethical Metalsmiths’ vision is a world in which people can create and enjoy jewelry made with materials from responsible sources that protect and sustain the earth, its peoples and cultures.​​www.EthicalMetalsmiths.org

The featured artists identify as LGBTQ+, a demographic still marginalized both in public and in the museum space. This show is a reaction to a large part of art exhibitions still showcasing nearly exclusively white/male/heterosexual-identifying artists.  Just as importantly, it wishes to bring focus to up-and-coming artists using out-of-the-box approaches to their practice.

Exhibit runs November 30 – December 29, 2018

 

 

An exhibition of recent paintings, drawings, intaglio, and screen prints created at the Armory Art Center by faculty member and student, Mark Cohen. The collection makes us look at who we are and what we believe in. From the genocide of humans and animals in the last 75 years, this collection is snap shots that beg the question, “what has happened?.” The artist hopes that we can all take the next step and ask ourselves “What can I do to make this a better world?”

 

 

 

 

 

“Las Vegas” by Mark Cohen

 

 

Mark Cohen tells The Rickie Report, “Five years ago, I took a walk in the woods with my friend, Rabbi Howard Shapiro. We were at his home in Cedar Mountain, North Carolina. I was at a crossroads and needed help. So I asked my friend, “What does the Torah say about what I should do with the rest of my life.” He stopped walking.  And he said, “I’m retired. I’m not supposed to do this anymore.” After a brief moment or two, he said “Be Holy.” And we continued on our walk”.

 

 

 

Mark continues, “Unbeknown to Rabbi Shapiro, I had been watching him prepare for retirement for more than a year. And then he retired. I also watched Larry Bird, the basketball superstar, retire. And I watched my younger brother, Warren, retire. What they all had in common was they didn’t “retire.” I had no intention of retiring, but I did want to change my life. So, I watched the people I respected to see how they transitioned into new lives. What I learned was not to retire. You just do what you have always done, but differently. That was comforting”.

 

 

 

 

“9/11 Jumper” by Mark Cohen

 

 

Mark was ready to become a painter after a long career in advertising and marketing.  Being a painter was a life-long ambition.  “But, he says, ” I didn’t want to give up the other things that I’d always done.  So I didn’t!  I just made room for painting over a period of time and adjusted the time spent on my other activities.  I found the Armory Art Center: A place to learn how to paint, but so much more…a second family… including Board members, the Administration, faculty and students. Miroslav Antic, Jenny Day, Amber Tutwiler, Skip Measelle, Sam Perry, Bob Barra, Anthony Burks, Jr., Ron Garret and Richard Santiago are faculty members who have all contributed to my growth as an artist”. 

 

 

“I quickly found that the most difficult task in painting is choosing subject matter. I wanted to be an example for my son and daughter…that you could do something valuable later in life. That brings us back to Rabbi Shapiro’s admonition – ‘Be Holy’.  My interpretation of those words was ‘Do the Right Thing'”, Mark explains.

 

 

 

 

 

 

“Goodbye, Father Mike” by Mark Cohen

 

 

 

Mark clarifies, “To me, that meant paint about injustice. In a speech given at Amherst College on October 26, 1963, President John F. Kennedy passionately made the case for artists entering the societal issue venue when he said “If sometimes our great artists have been the most critical of our society, it is because their sensitivity and their concern for justice, which must motivate any true artist, makes him aware that our nation falls short of its highest potential. I see little of more importance to the future of this country than full recognition of the place of the artist.”

 

 

 

 

Mark Cohen feels that his purpose as an artist is to challenge our preconceived thinking about societal issues like genocide, foreign and domestic terrorism, racism, mass incarceration, police brutality, genocide of animals, mass shootings and gun violence in general, even what is art. “I hope my work makes people uncomfortable, for I believe that when people are uncomfortable it leads to the questioning of how and why these issues seem so difficult to confront and change”.

 

 

 

 

 

Mark Cohen is a graduate of Florida State University with BA and MFA degrees.  After graduation, he built a marketing communications firm that specializes in health care marketing. Clients included the University of Florida Physicians, Shands Hospital at the University of Florida, Duke University Medical Center, West Virginia University Hospitals, Scott & White in central Texas and many regional and community hospitals from Chicago to Miami. The firm earned hundreds of awards for creative excellence.

Lighthouse ArtCenter celebrates three native born Floridians who alarm and enchant us with their unexpected viewpoints, talents and techniques.  Consummate artists, each translates individual life experiences using only charcoal and paint on paper and canvas, or in the case of the famous outsider artist, Purvis Young, anything he could get his hands on.  The Lighthouse ArtCenter is proud to present these three powerful testaments to the rich cultural diversity in our vibrant state.

 

 

 

“Young Warriors On Horseback” by Purvis Young

 

Purvis Young  1943-2010

 

Purvis Young’s work will be shown in the 2019 Venice Biennale.  He was inducted into the Florida Artist Hall of Fame 2018.

 

 

Born in Miami’s Liberty City neighborhood, visual artist Purvis Young is most associated with the Overtown neighborhood where he settled in the 1960s. A major figure in the world of “Outsider Art,” his work may be found in the collections of the American Folk Art Museum, the Corcoran Gallery of Art, the High Museum of Art, the National Museum of African American History and Culture, and the Philadelphia Museum of Art, as well as Overtown’s Black Archives History and Research Foundation of South Florida, among many others.

 

 

A prolific creator, Young served three years in prison as a teenager, where he began drawing and studying art books from the prison library. “I didn’t have nothing going for myself,” he said. “That’s the onliest thing I could mostly do. I was just looking through art books, looking at guys painting their feelings.”

 

“Angel of Overtown” by Purvis Young

 

 

His work, highly influenced by Western art history, is colorful and vibrant, often serving as social critique and a call to action for social justice. Young painted and drew on a multiplicity of objects including found wood, discarded cardboard, doors, old utility bills, and printed pages from books. His installation Good Bread Alley consisted of multiple works affixed to the walls of a vacant alley in Overtown. Artworks were often sold or removed, then replaced with new works, and the installation/mural soon attracted the attention of the media and Bernard Davis, owner of the Miami Art Museum, who became an early patron, providing art supplies to the artist.

 

 

Sam Perry 1956 –

 

 

 

 

“Starbucks Series” by Sam Perry

 

 

 

Born and raised in West Palm Beach, Florida, Sam Perry is now one of the area’s most accomplished artists. He achieved success as an abstract artist in galleries in Miami, New York and elsewhere.  Then, in the wake of 9/11, Sam chose to focus on the human figure. “It was a paradigm shift for me,” he explained. “I became more aware of humanity and its frailty.”

 

Sam is an active proponent of the arts in his community. A member of the faculty of the Armory Art Center since 1987, he is now the longest-serving person there.  He taught art at Florida Atlantic University, Palm Beach Atlantic University and Dreyfoos School of the Arts, in addition to giving private lessons.

 

“Starbuck Series” by Sam Perry

 

 

 

“I like to draw in public spaces because it connects me to my community.” Sam added, “Palm Beach county is significant to the arts in Florida and becoming more so as the population continues to grow and evolve into sophisticated art-lovers.”

 

 

Sam received all of his education in Florida. He earned his Bachelor of Fine Art at Ringling College of Art and Design and his Master of Fine Art at Florida Atlantic University.  Sam Perry is the recipient of the South Florida Cultural Consortium Fellowship. His work has appeared in numerous solo exhibitions and his work can be found in the collections of museums, universities and private residences.

 

Terre Rybovich 1956 –

 

 

 

“While You, Beauty, See Us” by Terre Rybovich

 

 

The large drawings created by Terre Rybovich began by the artist charcoaling the entire surface of the paper and then lying down on it. The idea came to her years ago while delirious with the flu. “Drawing backwards” is how it initially presented itself. In other words, she removes charcoal to create an image instead of adding charcoal to paper.

 

 

 

Focused on figurative work, the body seemed like the most promising means for removing charcoal. The imprints are subtle but powerful, even edifying. She explains an unexpected outcome of this technique is how the mind reacts when confronted with creative input that it did not generate. Every new drawing requires a period of slow absorption, or acquiescence, before the mind yields to the body’s input. Then the imprint guides the process of completing the drawing.

 

 

“Freehand” by Terre Rybovich

 

Ultimately, the result of the body calling the shots at the drawing board is that Rybovich creates artwork that the mind could not have imagined. It means she works in a state of perpetual wonder.  She says, “Other artists have imprinted their art with their bodies since the earliest cave paintings. What captivates us, I believe, is the unadulterated impact of this most literal means of making the immaterial material—which is the essence of art.”

 

 

Terre’s formal education covered politics and economics. Her first career was in social justice activism and grant-making. That activist experience forged an enduring commitment to this world. It also instilled a courageous drive that she channels into art-making where she is happiest when she ventures beyond what is known. She is the daughter of Tommie Rybovich, the noted boat designer and builder. Ms. Rybovich proudly claims an inheritance of self-guided vision and ambition for the work.

 

 

 

The Lighthouse ArtCenter, a 501c (3) not-for-profit, was founded in 1964 by eight artists and Christopher Norton. In the last 54 years it has grown to include a gallery, school of art, gift shop, and art supply store. Supported by memberships, sponsors, and grants the ArtCenter now serves over 20,000 guests, 2,500 students, 45 faculty members, 500 summer ArtCampers and a comprehensive outreach program to benefit underserved and disabled residents in the community.

“Never Look Back” by  Dana Axel

 

Dana Axel has studied art since High School (Great Neck North Senior High), in Long Island, New York.  At Hofstra University, she was mentored by Professor Perle Fine, a major figure in the Abstract Expression era.  After receiving her B.S. in Education, Specialization Fine Arts as well as all of the painting courses towards the Master of Fine Arts, Dana taught art in the Port Washington School District, New York.

 

 

Artwork by Dana Axel

 

 

Dana’s artwork has been seen in many gallery shows in New York State and New England:  Emily Lowe Gallery; Heckshire Art Museum; Huntington Art League; South Shore Arts Council; the Plainview-Old Bethpage Library Art Shows;  Southern Vermont Art Center, and Stratton Mountain Arts Festivals. A proud member and exhibitor of the Lake Worth Art League since 2012, Dana has served on the Board of Directors for four years. Her paintings have been honored in a Two Person Art Exhibit in the South Palm Beach Town Council Hall, the Art Expo at Valencia Pointe, the Compass Community Center, and Artisans On The Ave in Lake Worth.

 

Artwork by Dana Axel

 

Dana tells The Rickie Report, “Using a “minimalist” vocabulary, I express my perception in a “visual voice” conveyed in a Hard-Edged Abstraction style. Predominantly painting with acrylic on canvas, my work is both non-representational and figurative.  I use collage as preliminary sketches for my paintings. Found imagery and forms are arranged, added to and subtracted from, until my concept emerges”.

VICKI  SIEGEL  ANNOUNCES  NEW  STUDIO

And:

   FIRST FRIDAY ARTWALK OCTOBER 6th

IN ARTIST ALLEY, DELRAY BEACH, FL

354 4th Ave.  Delray Beach, FL

Vicki Siegel invites the public to visit her new studio and exhibit space at 354 4th Ave. in Delray Beach in Artist Alley the first Friday of the each month beginning Oct. 6 and continuing Nov. 3, December 1 and into the New Year. Vicki is sharing this new space with two other artists; Brenda Gordon and Magnus Sebastian (Gordon & Magnus Gallery).

 

VICKI SIEGEL:

 

Vicki Siegel’s work combines painting and photography together. She creates images that unite her fascination with the world around her with the physicality of paint. Blending the two art forms is a process that results in images that are both real and imaginary. The photographers gaze allows her to observe and archive reality, while the paint flows from her subconscious to her brush in marks that are uniquely her own.  Siegel says, “In my work I ask the viewer to engage by comparing what is photographic and what is paint, but also what is personal and what is universal”. In the narrative it is her hope that they see her vision of how strange and wonderful life is, and how beautiful nature is and the necessity of preserving it.

Award winning Wall textile by Barbara Cheives

 

 

 

Barbara Cheives tells The Rickie Report, “Back in the 90’s I accompanied Les to several of his shows, most notably the Houston International Quilt Festival. Through Les’ tutelage I developed an appreciation for the garments, art and culture of Japan. I also have a natural affinity for the African culture and discovered that many of the colors and textures of the African textiles formed a beautiful “marriage” with Japanese textiles. This union resulted in the birth of my artist’s moniker – “Afrasia”.

 

 

Pillow and Scarf by Barbara Cheives

 

 

Barbara goes on to say, “Though the Japanese garments are vintage and no longer being worn, the beauty of the textiles are timeless. It seems natural to re-purpose these fabrics into wearable art – scarves and purses and decorative art – pillows, runners and wall hangings. Not wanting to lose an inch of the silks, I make use of the scraps to design small collages and greeting cards. Embellished with African & Asian inspired trims, beads, and “found” items my art is a form of ‘Multi-cultural Recycling’!”

Les Kozuki

Leslie Kozuki

Vintage Kimono has fascinated Leslie Kozuki for most of his adult life. This fascination has lead him to spend most of the last 30 years actively selling and researching Vintage Kimono, Obi, as well as other Asian textiles and Art.  Born and raised in Hawaii, he was immersed in Multi-Culturalism. Being Japanese American, kimono were easily accessible. His research began with questioning his parents and older family members, then extended to books, and participation in cultural interest groups.  The kimono is a simple garment with a complex history.  This is a unique opportunity to experience the fascinating story of kimono while learning to wear and decorate with the garments and the textiles.

Judy Flesher – Lotus Kimono

Les considers himself a merchant/researcher and is perhaps the most widely travelled Kimono salesman in the USA. His trunk show and lectures circuit has ranged from New York, Virginia, North Carolina down to Tampa and Palm Beach in Florida; from Texas to Kentucky, Illinois to Missouri up to Minnesota; and from Santa Fe, New Mexico (where he was based for many years) to Phoenix to California, Oregon and Washington. He continued this for many years.

 

 

Pam and Kimono

All travel on the Mainland USA was done by driving which allowed him to question anyone with knowledge about Kimono. For the past six years, his focus has been in Hawaii, to include the islands of Kauai, Maui and Oahu.  He is tracking the evolution of the Kimono and its Fabric, right here in the United States. Perhaps more so than in any other country. Come to one of his talks (he doesn’t like the word “lecture”) to find out why, and see some examples of his research. Catch him on his circuit, because he doesn’t have a shop. Ask any serious Japanese textile junky and they are sure to know about him!

 

Cynthia Simmons

Cynthia Simmons tells The Rickie Report, “While on one of my cross-country road trips, I asked God to bless me to use my hands to create something beautiful that would bless others.  I had owned Belle’s Basket by Design, Inc. for 10 years, but I wanted to express my spirituality through my artwork and evolve my yoga practice and photography skills.  This journey to jewelry started truly by the will of God. Nefertiti Jewelry Collection was inspired by the coastal villages of West Africa, the tropical breezes of Canon and the Caribbean Islands.  My muse came from the regal history of my African ancestry. I come from a linage of very creative and talented people; however, my creative soul has never had a formal lesson.  Only by the grace of God does my gift flow.”

“Blue Martini” necklace by Cynthia Simmons

 

The beads and materials she uses are from America, West & South Africa, Mexico, South America, India, China and the Caribbean Islands.  All of Belle’s Nefertiti Custom pieces have a spiritual, religious or cultural significance to them.  Tribal inspired jewelry are objects of great beauty and style. These sacred adornments are worn and loved by men, women and children of all creeds. It does not matter the age, there is something for everyone.


“I teach a sacred beading class at The Lords Place in Lake Worth. I have been teaching there for the past 6 months. I’m currently using my own beads and findings. When I started, we had a small amount of materials that were donated. The ladies love making items for themselves and also to donate to the thrift shop owned by The Lord’s Place. On March 10,2017 my group will showcase and sell their hand crafted jewelry to raise money for their program.  We are always looking for donations of beads, findings and beading materials”.

Art Synergy is a 501 (c) 3, not for profit arts organization founded in 2013. The fruit of the labors of Rolando Chang Barrero, Craig McInnis and Freddy Hennevelt grew out of the original Think Tank,. It has flourished through grassroots efforts beginning with a partnership with Art Palm Beach.  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. Volunteers and board members are always welcome.

 

By March 2017, Art Synergy will have organized 6 juried exhibition that have provided Florida based artists to have their work seen, and collected by national and international collectors and art patrons. Also, Art Synergy assists nine Florida art districts organize, promote and market over 65 exhibitions in each year throughout the Palm Beach and Martin County durning Art Palm Beach week which was initiated January 2014.

 

 

The nine art districts are: Antique Row Art District,Boynton Beach Art District,Delray Art Art District,Lake ParkArt District,North Palm Beach Art District,Lake Worth Art District,Northwood Village Art District,West Palm Beach Art District,Palm Beach Art District.

 

 

In 2016 Art Synergy was classified as a 501 (c) 3 not for profit arts organization which will allow for contributions and donations to a fund currently being created to allow needy families join experiential cultural experiences. This was possible because of the generosity of David and Lee Ann Lester of Next Level Fairs who donate exhibition spaces (Booths) at 2 of the Next Level Fairs: Art Palm Beach and Art Boca Raton.

 

 

ART SYNERGY is a countywide movement to unify and promote the diverse culture of our vibrant arts community. ART SYNERGY’s future goals include events that will happen periodically throughout the year, the addition of more participating art districts, and 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.
