Why we love Wearable Art:

Wearable Art is the most wonderful way for artists and their clients to express themselves and communicate their passions and views to a broader audience by, almost literally, wearing their hearts on their sleeves. We are trying to encourage widespread awareness of the importance of preserving endangered species and habitats. We encourage artists to celebrate the beauty and value of what we stand to lose or to illustrate the threats faced. Eco-friendly materials are encouraged.

 

 

 

Welcome to all forms of Wearable Art!  In earlier contests, artists have responded to the challenge to interpret ENDANGERED in unique and personal ways:

We do not generally put wearable art such as jewelry on full time display during our ENDANGERED exhibitions. We find it shows better on models and it is easier for us to keep the very portable artworks secure. We have a VIP cocktail reception, to which artists and their friends are invited and at that event we have informal modeling during the evening as well as a more formal fashion show with an MC and DJ.   Dramatic silks show well in formal and informal modeling shows.   Casual and formal clothes including hats are all welcome.   ENDANGERED: Art4Apes is grateful to our styling team: make-up artist Alyson Sichenzia Hearne and hair stylists Scott Hearne and Patricia Hardsaw.

Judging of the ENDANGERED Art & Photography Contest:

Our panel of three jurors will score each entry in terms of creativity, success in reflecting the theme of “ENDANGERED” and technical skill.  We are delighted to announce that Charlene Modena, award-winning artist and Director of the School of Jewelry and Metal Arts, Academy of Art University, San Francisco, has agreed to be one of our jurors. Charlene is an internationally acclaimed jeweler, enamelist and mixed media artist. Her recent series of pieces titled “Endangered” speaks of the losses in the natural world. This Endangered tiara is made from sterling silver, recycled jewelry and found objects.  Charlene volunteered for many years in wildlife rehabilitation at Wildcare in San Rafael CA.

ABOUT ARTSYNERGY:

 

In early 2013 with the help (and at the urging of) Frank Basta Jr., Nationally known artist/activist, Craig McInnis and Rolando Barrero (local artists and activists themselves) created a THINK TANK. Dedicated to finding solutions instead of dwelling on problems, the THINK TANK was a forum for local artists of all kinds to come together and discuss ideas to help the local scene grow.

 

 

 

The first initiative that Rolando,Craig and Freddy Hennevelt wanted to tackle was a program of events to coincide with ArtPalmBeach; in hopes that the local scene could benefit from the popular art event much like Miami has benefitted from Art Basel. Soon it was named ART SYNERGY and took shape.

 

 

 

 

 

 

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.

 

 

 

ART SYNERGY is a countywide movement to unify and promote the diverse culture of our vibrant arts community.
