World Renown Artist, David Hayes’ Sculptures in Northwood

Thirteen large steel sculptures by noted Connecticut artist David Hayes will grace the Northwood Village shopping district of West Palm Beach for a year.  Northwood Village, located in northern West Palm Beach, is an oasis of restaurants, galleries and pedestrian friendly shops. The district has enjoyed a resurgence as a foodie destination in recent years, capped now by an exuberant display of outdoor sculpture. The Rickie Report suggests you stop by a little earlier for that dinner reservation, to take in all that Northwood has to offer!

 

 

 

NorthwoodA&W - Six Month Date Card_5x5_v4 C

 

Jon Ward, Executive Director of the West Palm Beach Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA), states that “This brings an exciting, world-class display of modern sculpture to one of West Palm Beach’s most charming neighborhood shopping centers.” Northwood Village, located in northern West Palm Beach, is an oasis of restaurants, galleries and pedestrian friendly shops. The district has enjoyed a resurgence as a foodie destination in recent years, capped now by an exuberant display of outdoor sculpture.

 

 

The artwork will be sited outside of stores and shops in Northwood Village. Sculptures will be strategically placed on sidewalks, open spaces, grassy fields and courtyards where people walk on their way to work and shop. Artist David Hayes previously commented: “I like placing sculpture where people may view them on their own terms. It is important to bring artwork to public areas where anybody may enjoy it at their leisure.”

 

 

Son of the sculptor and exhibit curator John Hayes says that the exhibited artwork is part of a traveling museum exhibition and planning for this tour has been going on for over a year. Hayes worked closely with Jon Ward, who previously served on the Board of the Florida Council for Arts and Culture and had spearheaded major outdoor sculpture exhibitions in the region.

The sculptures are all created from welded steel plate and are designed for long-term public art exposure. The show consists of a variety of the artists’ different phases, including some screen pieces as well as iconic totems and even one hanging piece. Hayes selected to paint the pieces either in a semi-gloss black finish or bright multi-colors, depending on the feeling of the sculpture. The exhibition enjoys strong support from the community, including the village’s numerous residents and store owners.

 

 

The late artist enjoyed a six-decade long reputation as one of America’s great contemporary sculptors and has work included in the Museum of Modern Art, the Guggenheim Museum plus over 100 institutional collections across the country. He also designed jewelry for Pierre Cardin while living in Paris.

Announcing ART SYNERGY ARTWEEK2015! Art Synergy Announces New Art Districts and Calls to Artists!

 After an amazingly successful inaugural year, Art Synergy is back bigger and better with “ArtWeek 2015”.  Formed in early 2013 in response to the needs of local artists in Palm Beach County, Art Synergy is a countywide movement to unify and promote the diverse culture of our vibrant arts community. Developed from discussions during a think tank with local artists, Rolando Chang Barrero, Craig McInnis and Freddy Hennevelt took the lead and formed an organization to promote art events throughout the county that would coincide with Art Palm Beach.  Through the generosity and support of Lee Ann Lester, the Director of IFAE and Art Palm Beach, Art Synergy will once again have a booth at the ArtPalm Beach 2015 exhibition, January 22 through January 25, 2105. This is an extraordinary opportunity for artists to be in this prestigious show by entering a call to artists. It will be a juried exhibition of exceptional work created and made by professional artists of Palm Beach County. This beautiful showcase is held at the Palm Beach County Convention Center, West Palm Beach, FL and is dedicated to providing a rich visual arts experience for collectors and art enthusiasts from Europe, Asia, and North and South America.  The deadline to apply is December 15th.  The Rickie Report is proud to be part of this event!

The call for artists is open to all residents of Palm Beach County. The deadline to apply is December 15, 2014. Applications are available at Juried Art Services http://www.juriedartservices.com

 

 

 

Developed from discussions during a think tank in 2013 with local artists, Rolando Chang Barrero, Craig McInnis and Freddy Hennevelt took the lead and formed an organization to promote art events throughout the county that would coincide with Art Palm Beach. The thought was that Palm Beach County arts could benefit from the popular art event much like Miami benefitted from Art Basel. Soon it was christened ART SYNERGY and took off running with the support of the many local artists in the county.

 

 

The first year, five art districts participated in various ways, with each district having events on one particular day during the week long Art Palm Beach event. The repose was phenomenal and the momentum in developing the volunteer non=profit organization was ongoing throughout the year with additional countywide meetings with artists, the community and the media.

 

 

Opening night of Art Synergy 2014

The organization grew and this year has expanded to seven districts. Once again there will be specific days in for each districts and the participating galleries and artists to be spotlighted. The districts are comprised of artists’ studios, galleries and supporting businesses and restaurants that have come together to promote local art. The seven districts are West Palm Beach, Lake Worth, North County, Northwood, Antiques Row (including Worth Avenue), Boynton Beach and Delray Beach (Artist’s Alley).

 

 

Art Synergy, a non-profit organization, and all of the participating districts are volunteer based and rely on the artists and volunteers to run and manage all of the events. They also depend on sponsorship from local businesses and patrons in order to promote and market the events. Art Synergy is always looking for sponsors and there are many sponsorship opportunities.
