“School Supplies for the New Generation” Installation Art by Rolando Chang Barrero

 

 

Rolando began his art career with a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the Art Institute of Chicago where he also received many honors and a coveted Ryerson Traveling Fellowship.  He is an experimental media artist, a visionary, a cultural leader and well known for his “Social Justice” art film.  He moved to Miami Beach in 1980, doing odd jobs but eventually working for Ted Lapidus in Bal Harbor, later relocating to Beverly Hills, CA working for Torie Steele on Rodeo Drive. He eventually moved back to Miami Beach, working with lifelong mentors and opening an art studio.  On the move again he went to Chicago working in the Pilsen Art District doing internships at numerous galleries.

 

Thanks to the Ryerson Fellowship, Rolando was able to visit Cuba with fellow Cuban artists in 1990.  His experience there opened his eyes to exploring the rich art and unique cultures of other countries.  When his money ran out he returned to South Beach and set up an art studio once again.  He began curating exhibitions as Interim Galleries Director for Miami-Dade College system.  Soon he was able to travel and continue exploring cultures and art in Europe, Asia and South America.  

 

 

 

 

 

 

Rolando underwent treatment for brain cancer for many dark years until he was finally able to return to work just before he moved to Palm Beach County in 2010.  He has established himself as a cultural art leader, founding the Boynton Beach Arts District, co-founder of Art Synergy, the Florida Arts Association, host and founder of Hola Palm Beach the first bilingual art and culture television show in the area. He is the recipient of the Congressional Letter of Commendation and Proclamation for Cultural Leadership.  He serves as curator of The Box Gallery and Compass having received the Best Gallery of 2018 award from the South Florida Gay News.  In the past he has served as Curator/Director of several galleries and currently curates at the Box Gallery in West Palm Beach.  Rolando was recently named as a MUSE Award recipient from the Cultural Council Of Palm Beach County, a prestigious recognition.

Juror, Ehren Gerhard | Biography

 

 

Ehren Gerhard is an arts administrator and educator who calls Cape Coral, Florida home. Since 2014, he has been an Adjunct Professor of Art at Florida Gulf Coast University, Art Exhibitions Director for the Centers for the Arts Bonita Springs and Director of the Bonita Springs National Art Festivals. He earned his Master of Fine Arts in Painting and Drawing from Arizona State University and his Bachelor of Arts from Florida Gulf Coast University. In 2013, he and his wife lived and worked in southern Spain as cultural ambassadors and language assistants for the Spanish Government.

 

Gerhard has been an arts educator for over ten years striving to increase appreciation for the arts, deepen our knowledge of their history, and place their meaning into context. In his own work as an artist, Gerhard derives inspiration from his surroundings and the natural world. “My imagery depicts an intense encounter with time and place. Working somewhere in-between scientific observation and romantic idealism, my goal is to create a living image that breathes and moves.” Gerhard lives in Southeast Cape Coral where he maintains an active studio, works on his garden and goes on primitive camping and fishing trips as often as possible.

 

In explanation to his varied selections for the exhibit, Juror Ehren Gerhard will outline the regional histories of art in Florida and imbue his deep appreciation for diverse approaches to the artistic process. Guests will be guided through a selection of artworks from the exhibit which both strengthen our foundations in the past and progress the future of art. Conclusions will be explored relating to media, style and subject matter by displaying these varied artworks side by side to create new conversations symbolic of contemporary society.

Acrylic Painting by Maxwell Taylor

 

 

 

Maxwell was born on New Providence Island, Bahamas.  His artistic talent was discovered as a young schoolboy and early in life he was apprenticed to the fabled Chelsea Pottery.  He later moved to New York and studied at the Art Students League of New York and took further studies in photo silkscreen at the Pratt Graphic Center and printmaking at The Printmaking Workshop.  His uncompromising commitment to black power artists is evidenced in his woodcuts, etchings and stark canvases.  He admired and was influenced by Daumier, Braque and Picasso.

 

Wood cut print by Maxwell Taylor

 

 

 

Maxwell left New York after 20 years and traveled to South Carolina and Europe, observing the social, economic and political dynamics of many cultures but never forgetting his Bahamian roots.  In 1983 he was one of ten artists selected to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Bahamian Independence. Maxwell has had a one man show in Nassau, was represented in the exhibition “Bahamian Art Today” at Brent Malone’s Matinee Gallery and is found in the collections of Nat King Cole and Sir Harry Christie.  He received the Fellowship Award from the Southern Arts Federation for works on paper by the National Endowment for the Arts.     

 

 

Woodcut print by Maxwell Taylor

 

This versatile artist and accomplished technician has become a master of a variety of media.  He is renowned for his ceramics and paintings but it is in his printmaking that he excels using an ancient technique of cutting wood.  In his career he has explored themes of universality, despair, celebration and atrocities.

About Suzanne Redmond:

With Suzanne Redmond’s background in accounting, finance, and exhibiting art, she knows what it takes to get your artwork seen and sold. She’s chosen artists for her podcasts who are working their business – exhibiting their art, teaching others, and finding unusual opportunities. You’ll hear from some unsung artists who are extremely talented and creative. Hopefully you’ll look up their work and be inspired by what they do, or purchase their art to support them.  Artists really do the coolest things, and they do this while running a family, traveling, and living an art-filled life! Enjoy listening to these successful artists who are happy to share the keys to their success with you.  

Suzanne Redmond has that unique combination of an artsy right brain, and an awesome left brain for business. She uses the skills she’s honed as an accountant and art show organizer to give artists the best tools for making more money and getting their work seen. Her business background started with a degree in accounting, and years working in financial and contract management. Later, she switched gears and began to work her artistic side, selling her jewelry and paintings. As she became more connected with the arts community, she found herself organizing art shows, helping artists with their business and writing tasks, and interviewing them for her podcast.

About The Center For Creative Education:

 

The Center for Creative Education is an educational nonprofit that strengthens the presence of the arts in the classrooms of Palm Beach County, Florida. Today, our Teaching Artists work with thousands of children in schools and after-school programs throughout the County, as well as at our Center in West Palm Beach, Florida. A majority of the students we work with are considered “at risk” of educational failure. The arts-based programs we provide are a very powerful way to improve these students’ chances of success; both academically and personally. CCE also works with advanced students who benefit from the opportunity to delve deeply into subjects through the arts and develop their creative thinking and problem solving skills. At our Center, in the Northwood Village section of West Palm Beach,we provide arts instruction for children and adults, we host art shows in our Gallery and serve as a base for many community activities. It’s also home to our administrative offices.  For more information: www.cceflorida.org
