“Kanji Rods, Rose” by Claire Satin

 

 

 

Bailey Contemporary Arts (BaCA) is proud to present “Large Scale Constructions” by Claire Satin, featuring an overview of the internationally acclaimed artist’s large sculptural works primarily from the 1980’s and 1990’s. Satin has had an extensive exhibition and collections history in the U.S. and Europe and is known for her use of a vast range of different materials, mediums and environments to create  notion-challenging artwork. 

 

“You don’t want to miss this exhibition,” said Phyllis Korab, Cultural Affairs Director. “Claire Satin is an internationally exhibited and collected artist, and we are extremely excited to provide this showcase of her talent which features her conceptual large-scale sculptures in paper, wood, metal and ink.”  Satin’s work concentrates on the exploration of different mediums breaking the boundaries of traditional sculptures. These art pieces and constructions explore the connection between minimalistic forms while retaining a human connection.

 

Some of the works have been influenced by the artist’s association with her friend and mentor, the composer John Cage (1912-1992) and his concept of indeterminacy and chance operations. The artworks from 1980s and 1990s went through several phases, as they were constantly evolving in form, medium, and their level of minimalism and abstraction.

Thought Patterns” by Lori Arbel

and

 

 

“Vantage Point” by Ya La’ford

 

 

Arbel’s work will be on view until March 31.

 La’ford’s work will be on view until April 2. 

 

 

At 

Pompano Beach Cultural Center

 

50 W Atlantic Blvd.   Pompano Beach, FL  33060

 

 

 

The Pompano Beach Cultural Center is proud to announce its newest exhibitions, “Thought Patterns”, by artist Lori Arbel, whose work captivates audiences with intricate layers of ink, paint and other markings applied with numerous mediums on canvas. And “Vantage Point” by Ya La’ford. which features a selection of imposing, welded-steel geometric installations, along with several illustrative works on canvas.

 

“Lori is a remarkable talent who employs a dramatic way of creating her art,” said Phyllis Korab, Cultural Affairs Director. “She doesn’t use an easel, but instead she lays the surface on the table of her studio, constantly moving around it, working from each side and angle until the artwork is complete. Creating in this manner allows her the freedom to engage in the piece in its entirety and not from just one perspective.”

 

 

“Love Triangle” by Lori Arbel

 

 

Understanding her signature style is especially important for this exhibition, as her works explore the inner psyche including the monotonous tasks of everyday life.  Using marks and a reduced, neutral palette, the artist delves into thought patterns to question how we connect, respond, and make our mark on the world. Arbel embraces emotional introspection for content; creative expression as dialogue.  Pen and ink lines, handmade paper and geometric shapes allow her to express depth, texture and pattern that result in visually energetic and meditative renderings. The imperfections of the handmade paper and pops of gold illustrate metaphor, transforming sometimes negative energy into something beautiful.

 

 

 

 

Artwork by Ya La’Ford

 

As an installation artist, La’ford is best known for her signature use of wall-to-wall recurring geometric patterns including her highly regarded infusion of hypnotizing LED luminaries. For this exhibition, she will activate the gallery in an all-encompassing fashion, from floor to ceiling, allowing guests to travel through the exhibition by following the lines and intersections in a way that creates meaning for them. 

 

“Ya La’ford’s work challenges viewers to see the patterns and cycles in nature,” said Phyllis Korab, Cultural Affairs Director. “This exhibition becomes a symbolic map of the universe created from her vision which she invites us to explore.”

 

La’ford’s work finds serenity through interconnecting lines, which to her represents a metaphorical journey to communicate humanity’s unseen experiences echoed through diverse but shared accounts. Through La’ford’s work, she finds interest in the role geometry plays in the physical experience and material worlds while the synchronicity of the universe is determined by certain mathematical constants which express themselves in the form of patterns and cycles in nature.

This exhibition is presented as part of the launching activities of Women Photographers International Archive (WOPHA), an emerging organization dedicated to research, promotion, support and education on the role of women, and those identified as women, in photography. It is curated by Aldeide Delgado, art historian and curator whose project Catalog of Cuban Women Photographers collates, for the first time, the works of Cuban women photographers from the 19th Century to the present.

 

“U.S-based female Cuban artists have flourished as a result of a more openly creative environment which they now live,” said Phyllis Korab, Cultural Affairs Director. “The photographs freely explore their experiences without censure.”  Archives have traditionally functioned as repositories that legitimize a patriarchal construction of history. These spaces have been confined to institutions with very restrictive access where only a few have the privilege of interpreting its documents.  How can the framework of feminism help to explore and reconstruct historical narratives?

Photography played a fundamental role in the feminist art movement of the late 1960s, in large part because of its accessibility and its direct engagement of political and social issues. By using photography, women artists found a powerful tool to deconstruct the male gaze and to bring private themes into public discussion. Also, photography was a non-traditional medium- a recent one in comparison to painting and sculpture- that expanded the definition of fine arts and incorporated diverse artistic possibilities.

Building a Feminist Archive: Cuban Women Photographers in the US shows the varied contributions of Cuban women artists living and working in the United States since the seventies, when the concept of a collective “Latino” identity became crucial. These artists started to attend art schools and found themselves inspired by and responding to the social movements of their time. They created new images of their communities and examined pluricultural experiences challenging the notion of being exclusively Cuban or American. This show reveals artwork rarely seen or exhibited, and at the same time promotes reflection on the social, cultural and political identities of Cuban Women Artists in the United States within the current discussion of Latinx art.

“Making your Mark” Workshop

 

 

“This exciting class will provide participants with hands-on experience in the art of building and printing images,” said Phyllis Korab, Cultural Affairs Director.  The workshop will begin with a discussion of contemporary works that use printmaking as a tool, followed by a demonstration of simple monoprint, collagraph, and relief techniques. All of the techniques learned can be completed indoors or out, without a printing press and using only a small set of easy-to-transport tools.  Creating monotypes, which is a one-of-a-kind type of print, will be the focus of the hands-on portion of the class.

 

“For nearly ten years, I have taught art in marginal spaces – from prisons to hospital waiting rooms – and currently work with disabled adults. At the core of my practice is a deep respect for the innate equality and limitless potential of every person,” stated Burns.

 

Fast, flexible, and adaptive portable approaches for building and printing images will be explored as tools for documentation, social commentary and community-building. Participants will work together to create a series of large-scale collaborative prints, and a print to take home.

 

About Small Press Fair:

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.

Pompano Beach Cultural Center Presents Interactive Exhibit, “Super Natural Humanoids”, With Larger-Than-Life Adult Marionettes July 12 To October 4

The Pompano Beach Cultural Center presents “Super Natural Humanoids”, an interactive installation of larger-than-life marionettes, which resemble older adults.  Using levers and pulleys, guests will ‘activate’ these handcrafted works of art, encouraging a dialogue about how society can create better connections with our aging population.  Kudos to artists, Aurora Molina and Julian Pardo!  The public is invited to the Opening Reception on Friday, July 12.

Aurora Molina tells The Rickie Report, ““While I was living in Spain, I noticed a cultural contrast in the way older people were treated. In Europe, there was more interaction, appreciation and respect for society’s elders than what is typical in the United States. Here, our aging population and our more vulnerable population seems less included. We created Super Natural Humanoids to open up a dialogue about how we deal with age and how we can work to be more connected and inclusive.”

 

 

 

 

 

Exhibition Encourages Interaction

With Life-Size Older Adult Marionettes

 

 

 

 

 

“Super Natural Humanoids” Installation Art Exhibit by Aurora Molina and Julian Pardo

 

 

 

 

Molina and Pardo especially encourage younger people to play with the marionettes, which range in size from 5 feet to 14 feet tall and take weeks to complete. Through this ‘play time,’ the artists hope that people will realize how fun and cool older people can be, and that all stages of life are connected and should be respected.

 

 

 

“This is a brilliantly thought-provoking exhibition,” said Phyllis Korab, Cultural Affairs Director. “On the surface, playing with the marionettes is entertaining, but on a deeper level the artists are compelling us to reflect upon our own interactions with the aging population in our society. They are challenging us to look within ourselves and be more aware of how we engage with our seniors.”

“Grey Matter” by Susan Clifton

 

 

 

 

“Grey Matter” is intended to inspire and promote better self-talk. Susan Clifton’s favorite department in any bookstore has always been the self-help section. Her continued interest in that subject combined with her interest in women’s issues is a major influence in her current work.  custom fabricHer creative process is truly unique—fabric mosaic on canvas. She starts with the theme and writes a few quotes on the subject. She then has custom fabric made with the quotes printed in shades of grey. Creating the figures takes hours of cutting and pasting pieces of fabric in just the right shade of grey.

 

 

“We are fortunate to have Susan as an artist-in-resident at BaCA,” said Phyllis Korab, Cultural Affairs Director. “Susan’s exhibition will expose visitors to subjects that ring true for all individuals looking to live a more positive life, to think more positively and to discard negative thoughts and attitudes. Her artistic wish is to inspire people to live their best life and to embrace gratitude. We are excited to present this inspiring message.”

 

“Create” by Susan Clifton

 

 

 

 

 

Clifton tells The Rickie Report, “This high-energy series of graphics, colors, and words paint the whole picture of the self we strive to become.  Viewers are inspired by each figure’s thought process that deepens visual experience with a lasting imprint on our psyches.”   Clifton was born to be an artist. She grew up loving painting and dance as a child, and then pursued a career in New York. She found success early in her career as an art director working on such campaigns as “Danskin’s are not just for Dancing,” “When your own initials are enough, Bootee Veneta,” and “What becomes a Legend Most, Blackglama.”

 

 

 

Jane Trahey, who was the first woman to own her own advertising agency, was Clifton’s mentor and the two created great campaigns for Famolare Shoes, Fashion Fair Cosmetics and Adrien Arpel. Susan won awards for “Footloose and Famolare” and was featured in Art Directors Magazine. All this before turning 30!  Other mentors at that time were the great photographers Richard Avedon and Saul Leiter. Working closely with both of them heightened her sense of composition and helped her understand the importance of a unique vision.  During this time Susan studied photography at School of Visual Arts. This further honed her skill of composition.

 

 

Now based in South Florida, she was honored to have her art be chosen out of hundreds of entries to represent the state in a deck of playing cards called “Art in the Hand, the U.S.A Project.” Her fabulous pink flamingo, Zelda, graced the” two of clubs” card and is featured on the box and sold in gift shops and museums across the country.

A  Group  Exhibition:   Arboreal

 

Exhibit is available through June 28, 2019

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

While grandiose trees easily catch our eye, this exhibition highlights the exquisite character of their unexpected and humble comrades. From preserved, pristine cherry blossoms encased in ice to A-bomb survivors in Hiroshima, trees and their parts continually school us on the process of growth, decay, and resurrection.  “This exhibition features the vibrant hues of nature and the tremendous range of nature’s canopies,” said Phyllis Korab, Cultural Affairs Director. “The artists capture the essence of why we strive to preserve our natural environment.”

 

 

 

The lives of trees and humans are intertwined, with trees being the giver in this arguably unbalanced relationship. Trees provide oxygen, shelter, food, protection, among other things necessary for human survival. Though paradoxically underappreciated and worshiped, there is no denying trees have a profound impact on our psyche. This collection of painting, sculpture, installation, mixed-media, and photo-based work is a glimpse into how 12 divergent artists interpret and respond to trees, real and imagined.

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.

“Spatterdock” by Jedda Wong

 

 

The botanical subjects were selected to mark the 100th anniversary in 2015 of the start of work on Tamiami Trail, a roadway begun in 1915 in Miami. Today it stretches across the Everglades from Miami to Naples and northward to Tampa, through areas that were largely wilderness a century ago. The exhibition’s more than 30 plant portraits depict species found then and now in multiple vegetation zones along the route. Due to human intervention and changes in water flow, some of the plants illustrated are rare or endangered, and their predominant locations may have shifted, but all persist in South Florida’s landscape.

 

 

 

“We invite our community to dive deep into the discerning talents of the artists capturing the essence of South Florida in plant form,” said Phyllis Korab, Cultural Affairs Director. “Far beyond ‘flower painting,’ botanical artists show the fascinating and soul-stirring intersection of science and art.”  Presented with support from the Florida Keys Council of the Arts, the exhibition is the result of the artists’ collaboration with Dr. Evelyn Gaiser of Florida International University, who is principal investigator for the local Florida Coastal Everglades Long Term Ecological Research program.
