May 12- May 24 :

“Derby Days”

 

Gallery View

 

 

May 12- May 24 : “Derby Days”: This is our show with a “Horse” theme, re-titled. We have a number of equestrian enthusiasts who have been working in our studio, visiting our gallery and asking for works that involve horses. The show is being held earlier this year to reach the equestrian community before they leave the area for the summer.

 

 

May 26-June 7:

 “Birds of a Feather”

 

 

May 26-June 7 “Birds of a Feather”  This show is opened to photographers, painters, sculptors, potters, jewelers and all fine artists who love our feathered friends. Again, if this does not evoke “bird” in you, and you can interpret this in any other way, you works are welcome

“Hook Line and Sinker”

 

Artwork by Jennifer Love Gironda

June 23-July5 “Hook Line and Sinker”We go from the air and tree tops, to the deep blue sea with this show. Nautical themes are what we anticipate, with lots and lots of fish and sea creatures. Once again, if this does not evoke “fish” in you, you can interpret this in any other way. 

 

 

July 7- July 19:

“Shoe Fetish/ Foot Fetish”

Shoe Fetish Gallery View

 

July 7- July 19: “Shoe Fetish/ Foot Fetish” This proved to be last year’s favorite show among our patrons who purchased more works than in any other show of the year . We like adding some levity to the hot summer by introducing the foot theme into our mix. Let’s get some pictures of these works into the gallery a few weeks early so we can get some more TV coverage on this. We want to bring the shoe loving crowds into the gallery to purchase your works. Last year some retired shoe manufacturers came into the gallery to buy.

 

August 4-August 16:

“Peanuts Rising”

 

 

Artwork by Bea Doone-Merena

August 4-August 16: “Peanuts Rising” formerly known as “The Male Form” We are repeating this successful special request exhibition. As in the past, this special show came from artists who felt slighted by the creations and shows that mostly feature the female form. They wanted equal time We welcome your interpretations.

 

 

August 18 to August 30

” Bread and Roses”

 

?????   Your Interpretation ?????

 

August 18 to August 30- ” Bread and Roses” in honor of Women’s Equality Day. The title, “Bread and Roses”, came from the 1912 Laurence Mill strike where women fought for their rights, asking for raises for bread, but for roses in their lives as well. This exhibition honors women, their contribution to the world and to art. Just being a woman in the arts (with or without a message) brings honor to the exhibit.

 

September 1-September 20th

September 1-September 20th- “Speak Their Names” Revisited: A Special Invitation Show.

October 20-November 1

“Halloween, Freaky”

 

Gallery View With Artist Yury Lobo

 

 

October 20-November 1: “Halloween, Freaky” replaces the Annual “Day(s) of the Dead” Lake Worth is now doing “Day of the Dead,” so we thought we would encompass a wider range of the Halloween Scene this year.

Gallery View

 

Thursday, November 2- Wednesday, November 15: 2nd Annual Judaic Show. We plan this show to occur over a month before Hanukkah so that works can sell in time for holiday giving.

Show This annual show is open to all artists, and brought 1600 visitors to the gallery last year. It often gets TV and Press coverage….and it’s just for fun. There is a $100 top prize, and four second place prizes given to artists by the PEEPS™ Company.

April 8-April 20: “There’ll Be No More Horsing Around”

 

This will be our first year of a show with a “Horse” theme. We have a number of equestrian enthusiasts who have been working in our studio, visiting our gallery and asking for works that involve horses. The gallery and studio will be participating in, and contributing to a major Breast Cancer Fund-Raiser at the Wellington Polo Club just prior to this event.

 

 

 

April 22- May 4 “Spin a Tale of Love”

Each artist entering this show will receive two antique wooden spindles that held yarn in the old knitting mills. You must use these spindles (in any manor you wish) as part of your artist entry. “Spin a Tale of Love” could be about any lovers throughout history, real or fictional, human or otherwise. This is your chance to tell your love story. (You need not ask “how” to use the spindles. It is up to you.)

 

 

 

June 17-July 6 “There Auto Be A Law”

A show about cars and motorcycles and widgets and gadgets- A recent study showed that there are fewer collectors of art among the young and wealthy. Many of these collectors are turning their attention to the collection of cars and bikes. Let’s test these waters and sell them the Art of Motorcycle and Automobile Art Maintenance.

 

July 8- July 20: “Shoe Fetish/ Foot Fetish”

This proved to be last year’s favorite show among our patrons who purchased more works than in any other show of the year (except for The Naked Truth.) We like adding some levity to the hot summer by introducing the foot theme into our mix. We want to bring the shoe loving crowds into the gallery to purchase your works.

 

 

 

August 5-August 17: “The Male Form”

September 9-September 21: “The Naked Truth”

We are always happy to repeat this show again and again. Although it may seem similar to “The Male Form,” we see this as a wide open topic that can be interpreted as broadly as you wish.

 

 

 

October 7- October 19: 3rd Annual Cat-O-Strophic Event

This wildly popular event is all about cats; cats of every shape, color and kind. We will again reach out to all of the animal rescue venues, pet shops and veterinarians as we publicize this event.

 

 

 

October 21-November 2: 3rd Annual “Day(s) of the Dead”

This event brought purchasing patrons into the gallery long after the exhibit was taken down. The works of gallery artists, left over from this event, continue to sell. We have a whole new mailing list of DofD patrons who are looking forward to your works.

 

 

 

November 4-November 16: “The ‘I’ of Picasso”

This is our tribute to one of the world’s greatest and most versatile artists that ever graced this planet. It is your “I” as well as his, that will fuel this exhibit. Let your creativity flow, reflecting one or more of his art “periods” or one of your own.

 

 

November 18-November 29 “Whose Your Dada”

This your tribute to a movement that turned the art world on its head. Now it is time for you to stand on your head and influence the world around you though your art.

 

 

 

Joyce Brown tells The Rickie Report, “You may have noticed that we will not be repeating the “It’s A Dog’s Life” show this year. Although everyone loves dogs, it seems far more difficult to sell you works of art featuring dogs, than it is to sell your works on any other topic.  And for the rest of the season, we will turn the front of the gallery back to the member artists. If you are a 3-D artist , please consider joining the gallery (and/or) our new studio. Members do not pay fees to be a part of our special exhibitions. It is part of the membership. Write for an application and we will forward it to you”.

Joyce Brown tells The Rickie Report, “For the last two years, Sid Walesh has won first place. His works have been extraordinary ones that rotate on a pedestal.  Sid has asked that someone challenge him for first place. Please consider answering this challenge by giving Sid some real competition. It is not that the other entries were not extraordinary. I have always been blown away by your creativity. I think it is the extra complexity, for which the judges have awarded 1st place.”

Her ability to anatomically nail any living species on the planet evokes commissions from those wanting sports figures to look like their children to those wanting an exact replica of a dog or a goat.  MaryEllen’s teaching abilities have a loyal following of students who have worked under her supervision for decades.

Peeps are those iconic candy figures that appear every Easter.  They come in a variety of colors in forms of chicks and rabbits.  The Clay Glass Metal Stone Gallery has joined with many others around the country to present wall hangings and dioramas that feature these Peeps.  Peeps lend themselves to visual puns.  Last year, Clay Glass Metal Stone Gallery featured: The Pied Peeper, Peep Seeger, Black-eyed Peeps and Ham, Peeps on Safari along with several dozen others.  This is a popular exhibit that has drawn more than a thousand visitors to the gallery.

 Interview with Bob Born

 TRR:  Peeps®  have developed into an American icon!  What was it like growing up in a candy manufacturing business?

Bob Born:  

Probably like any other family.  We promoted over 700 assorted, packaged chocolates. Some of the companies were mail-order just for the metro New York area.

TRR: According to your website, Just Born is a family-owned candy manufacturer that has been in the business since 1923.  What other candies do you produce now?

BB: 

 We make everyone’s favorite candies. Among our well known confections are:
candy bullet PEEPS® Brand Marshmallow Candies
candy bullet MIKE AND IKE® Brand Candies
candy bullet HOT TAMALES® Brand Candies
candy bullet GOLDENBERG’S® PEANUT CHEWS® Brand Candies
We employ almost 600 associates, most of whom are at our world headquarters in Bethlehem, PA. All Just Born candies are made in the USA.
In 2009, Just Born opened its first retail store, PEEPS® & Company, in National Harbor, MD. Since then, we have opened 2 more stores. One in the Mall of America in Minneapolis, MN and the other in The Outlets at Sands Bethlehem in Bethlehem, PA. You can also check out our online store at www.peepsandcompany.com

TRR: How do you create a new confection?

 

BB:  Well, we wanted to get  MIKE AND IKE® going Nationally.  When you manufacture jelly candies, they have to be tumbled in a large rotating vat with a sticky sugar syrup and then more sugar, which will coat each piece. Then you screen out the pieces that have stuck together, recook them and make more candy.  We always had a mix of fruit flavors and colors.

At this point in the process, you couldn’t identify the color so our team thought we should add licorice flavor and black coloring to camoflague the product it had previously been and call them “Black Joes”.  Feeling it was politically incorrect, we came up with a different plan.

Our team added red color and some cinnamon to the mix.  When one of the tasters sampled the new confection and yelled “It’s Really Hot”, we knew we had a hit on our hands and called it “Hot Tamales®”!  It has become one of our flagship confections!

 

TRR:  Did you dream of growing up and continuing in the candy business with your family?

BB:  I studied as a physicist and was drafted into WWII.  I worked on aircraft research, went to the Infantry and then was taken to the Navy, as I became an electronics expert.  When I came home from Guam, I planned to go to medical school.  I asked my father for a job for 11 months until Medical school began and I ended up working at the family business for over 50 years!

 

TRR:  Do you have a favorite candy?

BB:  That’s like asking a parent if they have a favorite child!  Of course – they are ALL my favorites!

 

TRR:  Tell us more about some of the innovations you brought to the confection industry.

 

BB:  Well, when we started making the chicks for PEEPS®, each chick was squeezed by hand with a pastry tube.  It took 27 hours from start to finish to make a chick and have it be ready to ship.  My design team knew there had to be a better, more economical way to produce the candies.  It took us over a year of trial and error to finally mechanize the process.  Now it takes 6 minutes from start to finish!

 

TRR:  Obviously, your engineering background really helped!

BB:  Yes, and our company has always believed in helping our employees gain knowledge not only for the company but for themselves.  All along the way, we’ve brought in teachers to help our employees improve their skills.  Now we have regular classrooms with computer lessons, English as a second language courses, electronics, you name it.  The best thing you can give another person is an education.  You would be surprised at how many new ideas come from our employees!

 

TRR:  You offered night school and incentives for your employees to learn.

BB:  That is what the American Dream is all about!

 

TRR:  Anything else you’d like to share with our readers?

BB:  I am amazed at the crazy artwork and games people come up with when it comes to our PEEPS®.  I’m constantly surprised at how many contests take place all over and I could not be more delighted!

 

TRR:  Let’s share some facts from www.justborn.com 

  •  “Jimmies”, the chocolate grains sprinkled on ice cream were invented at Just Born, and named after the employee who made them.
  • Each HOT TAMALES® chewy candy has only 7 calories and 0 grams of fat.
  • GOLDENBERG’S® PEANUT CHEWS® were developed during World War I and used by the U.S. Military as a ration bar.  The high energy, high protein recipe and unique taste made it popular with the troops.
  • PEEPS® branded products have made celebrity appearances on many programs including: Good Morning America, The Today Show, CBS Sunday Morning, The Early Show, Saturday Night Live, Martha Stewart, Ellen, South Park, and The Daily Show.

 

 

 

 

Few products have achieved the iconic status of PEEPS®, the yellow, chick-shaped marshmallow confection beloved by children and adults alike. But, as popular as PEEPS® has become, it is only one of the many delicious products produced by Just Born, an 87-year-old, family-owned confectionery company based in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania.

The Just Born candy tradition actually began in 1910 when Sam Born emigrated to the U.S. from Russia. A candy maker by trade, Born used innovative technology to produce chocolate sprinkles, known as Jimmies, and the hard chocolate coating for ice cream bars. In 1916, Born invented a machine that mechanically inserted sticks into lollipops.

In 1923, Born opened a small candy-making and retail store in Brooklyn, New York. He marketed the freshness of his line of daily-made candy with a sign that declared, “Just Born.” Not long after opening the Brooklyn store, Born invited his brothers-in-law, Irv and Jack Shaffer, to join him in the business.

The company thrived in spite of the economic depression of the 1930s and, in 1932, moved its operations to an empty printing factory in Bethlehem, PA.

The company continued to grow, aided by several key acquisitions. In 1935, Just Born acquired the prestigious Maillard Corporation, well known for elegant hand-decorated chocolates, crystallized fruits, Venetian mints, jellies and “the best bridge mix in the country.”

In 1953, Just Born acquired the Rodda Candy Company of Lancaster, PA. Although Rodda was best known for its jelly beans, it also made a small line of marshmallow products that included a popular Easter Peep that was made by laboriously hand-squeezing marshmallow through pastry tubes.

Sam Born’s son, Bob, who had joined the company in 1946, helped mechanize the marshmallow forming process and Just Born has become the world’s largest manufacturer of novelty marshmallow treats.

Other popular products have been introduced over the years; including MIKE AND IKE® chewy fruit flavored candies in 1940, spicy, cinnamon-flavored HOT TAMALES® in 1950, TEENEE BEANEE® gourmet jelly beans in 1977, and sour ZOURS® in 1999.

Under the current leadership of Co-CEO’s Ross Born and David Shaffer, Just Born acquired Goldenberg Candy Company, makers of PEANUT CHEWS® and CHEW-ETS®, in 2003. Today, Just Born products are exported to many world markets and the candy is available to more than 1.5 billion people worldwide.

We hope you visit CLAY GLASS METAL STONE Gallery 605 South Lake Avenue  Lake Worth, Florida 33460  215-205-9441 to see this exhibit!
