The event encourages people to create art from reused, excess, found objects, or about-to-be-discarded materials from Resource Depot’s expansive warehouse. Some of the items the artists can create with include paper, cardboard, wood, rubber, fabric, plastic, metal, bottle caps and Styrofoam. The goal is to create awareness and promote activism within the local community and especially to the younger generations by spreading the idea that yesterday’s rubbish can be transformed into today’s art.

 

 

 

ResourceDepotGuerilla Head Art

“Guerrilla Head Art”

 

The main purpose for creative events such as Guerilla A.R.T. is to enhance education and appreciation of the arts and their impact on society. Overall, the concept is to preserve the environment by saving reusable materials from the landfill and improve humanity’s relationship with the natural world.

 

 

 

 

Also added to the event for this round: a local Artisan Village for your shopping pleasure. Resource Depot is still currently looking for vendors with handmade (environmentally-sustainable a plus) products to sell.  For more information about joining the Artisan Village please email or call Jennifer O’Brien at jobrien@resourcedepot.net and 561-882-0090.

This is how the event goes: each round contestants will channel their inner “MacGyvers”, out-crafting each other using Resource Depot’s repurposed materials and their own wits, creativity, and skills. Teams will be given materials normally considered trash (like things from the recycling bin), and some tools to work with (tape, glue, etc.). Each team’s challenge is to transform these reusable items into artistic creations on-site during different timed challenges during the event.

Here are the detailed Challenge Rules for those crafty creative types out there who would like to participate:

 

Challenge Rules:

• Two artist teams will randomly be paired against each other (head-to-head), with the winners of the semi-final round facing off in the final challenge. The first rounds will be 15-20 minutes in length, with the final challenge being 30-40 minutes.
• Artists will all receive their challenge simultaneously at the start of their head-to-head competition.
• Artwork must be created with the materials and tools supplied by Resource Depot, which will include ordinarily disposable items such as, but not limited to, materials such as paper, cardboard, wood, rubber, fabric, plastic, metal, bottle caps and Styrofoam. Tools may include such items as glue/glue guns, tape, staplers and other fasteners, scissors and other cutting instruments. Chosen materials for each challenge will not be revealed until the challenge begins.
• Each artist team is allowed to bring one “secret weapon” to the competition which could be cool reusable material or crafting tool and is allowed one bribe to the judges which can be a creative object but not money (and value not to exceed $50).
• At the end of the allotted time, artwork must be display ready and safe for viewing to be considered for judging. Artwork must be an original piece completed solely by the team using only materials provided and is encouraged to be whimsical, unusual, wild, curious or personally significant. Teams should be prepared to “sell”/explain their creation to the judges to receive the highest score—hint…storytelling is key part of the creative process and presentation.
• For all challenges, the artwork must be socially appropriate and acceptable. This means that artwork cannot be of any sexual nature; it should not contained any drug paraphernalia, nor be of violence or overtly gruesome in nature.
• Resource Depot and The Brewhouse Gallery reserve the right to display, publish and make the work available to the public via photo/video or otherwise. Artwork created in the contest may not be returned.
Celebrity judges will be on hand to rate projects on artistic merit, technique, and utility. And Resource Depot is thrilled to have back Tyson from the Gater 98.7FM as star MC for the night. Categories to complete for include:
• Most Creative
• Best Transformation of Raw Material to Art
• Thematic Impact: How does the piece reflect back to the reduce/reuse/recycle mission

 

The panel of three local “celebrity” judges (yet to be disclosed-stay tuned on the Resource Depot website for the latest updates!) will be on hand to help judge the entries.

 

 

 

ResourceDepotGuerilla Ladies I

Guerilla Ladies Team

 

 

 

 

In the first round of this competition that took place in September 2015, the teams had members that consisted of people from all walks of life: tattoo artists, painters, home schooling mothers, surfers, social workers, and teachers. As you can see ANYONE can get in on the fun and is encouraged to do so. The winner that evening received a $100 gift certificate to The Brewhouse Gallery. Resource Depot is now accepting applications for the next set of teams to take on these challenges during Round Two this January 9th.

 

 

 

Save the date and get ready to grab a beer, and get a front row seat for the extreme crafting at The Brewhouse Gallery, 720 Park Ave, Lake Park, and watch the glitter fly. The event is FREE for the public, however, we hope you will patronize The Brewhouse Gallery as a percentage of the proceeds from the evening benefit the non-profit Resource Depot.

 

 

 

 

 

Derby Girls Guerilla Event

Derby Girls Team

 

 

 

Resource Depot is a center for creative reuse that collects all the things that nobody wants anymore and gives them to those who can use them. This is done through mostly through memberships. But more than just collecting and distributing upcycled items, they also teach amazing ways to put all these items to use at home, in the classroom or in a business. This is accomplished by offering field trips, summer camp, in-house workshops, and outreach programs. At Resource Depot they believe in education through imagination, and creating a sustainable future starting with the surrounding community.

"Self Portrait" by Marilyn Walter

                     Self Portrait” by Marilyn Walter

 

 

 

 

Marilyn shares her inspiration and vision, “…The swirling, poetic moments, when I close my eyes and allow real and invented experiences to intersect, inspire my current mixed media paintings on paper, canvas and panel. People, places, thoughts, shapes and colors from everyday life move like quick films or snapshots; mysterious picture dramas shift between the seen and unseen, moving from the transparent to the obscure; and patterns, events or phrases become volatile and unsettling in my art. I document and observe these unfolding events, which engage the imagination and create a sense of place”.

“Who Makes These Changes?” by Marilyn Walter

 

 

 

 

She explains, “My process in creating art is to erase, inscribe, trace, incise, collage and transfer the resultant marks and images onto paper, canvas, wood, plastic or Plexiglass. Colors, shapes, movements, textures are repeated on multi-layered mixed media surfaces, becoming collages of traces. I reach the desired result when the patchwork of translucent plastic, paper or blackboard paint seamlessly incorporates the surrounding elements”.

“Summer” by Marilyn Walter

 

 

 

 

Marilyn goes on to say, “Growing up in Kuwait and Iran has allowed me to combine my passion and knowledge of both Eastern and Western cultures in my art. The influence of pattern, multiples and use of space viewed in my childhood are visible in the digital technology and printmaking processes that I use in creating my current work—a confluence of the timeless and the present”.

 

 

 

 

Marilyn Walter is a nationally recognized artist.  She is a graduate of the School of Visual Arts, Painting & Mixed Media Summer Residency Program, NY, NY School of Visual Arts, Printmaking & Book Arts Summer Residency Program, NY, NY Bank Street/Parsons, NY, NY and Fairleigh Dickinson University, BA, NJ. Marilyn is a Member, The Hacklab, North Boynton, FL and Member, WPA Printmakers of Austin, TX.  She has been involved in numerous Artists Residencies, Workshops and Exhibits in prestigious venues throughout the U.S. and internationally.

Evolution of Layers: Time…..Paint…..Meaning…..

 What will you see when you look at Chisolm’s next series, “Evolution of Layers”? The Rickie Report cannot tell what meaning you should see, but we know that these mixed media pieces will certainly evoke a variety of emotions, thoughts and memories that are personal.  Chisolm’s use of materials and color makes you consider the meaning each piece has for you. At the time of year when many of us make “resolutions” for new or changed behaviors, it’s good to take some time to “consider”. This show opens on December 30th with a lovely reception and continues through February 2nd.

Chisolm has been captivated by drawing and creating since his childhood in Mississippi.  Happiest when making his own toys and taking art lessons after school, Chisolm was always interested in cultural arts.  Starting in high school and later through college he helped support himself as a dance choreographer.  His creativity flourished while at the University of Southern MS, which at the time was the only accredited school of arts in the South.

 

Chisolm participated in a number of art shows and represented the University in many regional competitions.  “Man Standing”, a figurative piece, won Best in Show and earned him a full scholarship for the balance of his education.

Layers in Time

 

This show will be based on the next series of work that has evolved from “Layers In Time”.  He has titled it, ” Evolution of Layers”, using acrylic paint, plastic and epoxy on canvas.

Evolution of Layers

 

After a world-wide successful career in the fashion industry, Chisolm returned to his artist roots.  While living in Washington, DC he participated in many art exhibitions and solo shows.  In September, 2009 he began painting full time.  JF Gallery in W. Palm Beach showcased his work in a solo exhibition in January, 2011.  Currently his work is available through DTR Modern Gallery and Liman Gallery both in Palm Beach,FL.  Studio 1608 of  West Palm Beach, FL and the Philip Morton Gallery of Rehoboth Beach, DE also represent his work. Chisolm has also been chosen as one of the artists of Palm Beach County’s Art in Public Spaces.  One of his pieces is currently hanging at the Palm Beach International Airport between concourse A & B.

K. Chisolm

Chisolm shares, “My true mission is to show movement, passion and energy in each of my art pieces.  I work with the movement of my body and describe it as my ‘handwriting’.  The emotion I feel each time I take brush to hand is what my work is all about.  It is bold, filled with energy and power, and is often layered with contrast”.
Chisolm lives and works in West Palm Beach, FL.  His work hangs in private homes as well as corporate collections all over the U.S.  For more information go to: www.chisolm-art.net or contact him at: chisolmart@gmail.com  or  561 267 7720.
