TOWN OF JUPITER ANNUAL JUBILEE

SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 3rd  

FREE

11 – 4 

 

The Jupiter Jubilee is an annual community event put on by the Town of Jupiter for area residents. The Jubilee typically has entertainment, civic, educational, and cultural components.

The Town of Jupiter has been holding the Jubilee the first week of February since 2003. Its genesis was the town’s 75th Anniversary Celebration in 2000, when a community event was held at the municipal complex. This original event brought the community together to celebrate life in Jupiter, and was so successful that town leaders began planning for an annual event.

Each year, the Jubilee highlights Jupiter’s unique character, history, community and natural treasures. In the spirit of conservation, the Jubilee is a Green event, and vendors, exhibits and attendees are encouraged to recycle, re-use, and conserve.

Free parking is available at Jupiter High School, just south of the Jupiter Community Center, on Military Trail. Free shuttles will operate continuously throughout the event, back and forth from the high school and the Jubilee.

Ilene Adams, Prolific Artist, in Three Juried Exhibits

Ilene Adams has been very busy in this early part of season!  The Rickie Report is pleased to announce that her art is displayed in several juried shows and she has another opening in Jupiter on November 15th!  Ilene works in photography, mixed media and drawings.  Her accomplishments as a leader in the arts community as well as running her own marketing business confirm that she is not only dedicated to her own art, but others as well.  Read all of the details in this article!

Town of Jupiter Art Gallery

Presents

Ilene Adams

Opening Reception

Friday, November 15th

6 – 8 pm

Exhibit Runs  November 15th – December 27th

Jupiter Community Center is located at

210 Military Trail near the Police Station

 

 

Ilene Adams has been busy early this season with her art displayed in several shows and soon to be featured in the Town of Jupiter Art Gallery.  The show will run from  November 15 through December 27th with the opening on Friday, November 15th from 6-8PM. The Exhibit and Reception is open to the public. Ilene will show a combination of her work including mixed media, photography and drawings.

 

 

"Reflection"

Reflection”

 

 

She currently has work in the 3rd Annual Juried Photography Show at the Palm Beach State Gallery at Eissey Campus, Art on Park Gallery in Lake Park and The Lighthouse ArtCenter Artists’ Guild Gallery at Midtown.

 

 

Ilene studied printmaking and painting in Rome and received a BFA from Tyler School of Art, Temple University. She has also studied with Milton Glaser at the School of Visual Arts in New York. She has had many art careers, from designing textiles to creating murals to graphic design and all of these influences show up in her fine art. Her paintings are interesting mixed media, often including photographic images, paint, textural surfaces, gold leaf, yarn and various collage materials. Much of her work is nostalgic using images from childhood or familiar places.

 

 

Ilene states, “I believe that art and beauty bring joy and well-being to individuals and are essential for a well-balanced life.  Ever since I was a child, I have created one form of art or another. The artists that influenced me the most are Robert Rauschenberg and Maxfield Parish. Rauschenberg’s influence is apparent in my paintings that incorporate paint, collage, photographic images and artifacts. They evoke a feeling of nostalgia or of imaginary places.

 

 

"We All Have Wings"

“We All Have Wings”

She tells us, “My photographs deal mostly with nature, but nature through an intense filter.  Images are put under a microscope and colors are heightened. There is beauty all around us but how often do we take the time to really see it? Ordinary images are enhanced to create painterly new images that leave the viewer wondering if they are paintings or photographs? Abstract or realistic?”

 

 

Bruce Helander wrote, “Ilene Adams, is also a professional painter who has continued to sharpen her palette and compositional skills while searching out new subject matter inspired by nature. Her recent series of large-scale photographic prints could be mistaken initially for a sharp focus oil painting on canvas. This wondrous selection of water reflections from surrounding natural growth topped off with floating green circles of blooming water lilies is a unique extension of the artist’s trained eye.  In some of the photographs we are confronted by a series of dazzling reflective vertically vibrating lines that cut through the tint of the water like a sharp knife through butter. Adams likes to integrate a bit of art history in her work where it’s useful. She often pays homage to impressionists like Monet connected at the hip with contemporary sensibilities and a flare for vibrant, almost unnatural color. Her painted compositions that are also inspired from the Everglades often center on a single sculptural form of a tropical bird, perhaps standing on one leg.”

 

 

"Construct"

“Construct”

 

Aside from creating art, for the past 25 years or so, Ilene has had a company called The Marketing Works.  Originally a two million dollar company based in Boston, she now works with smaller businesses, doctors, artists and nonprofits developing marketing strategies and branding. She creates logos, collateral materials, websites and overall marketing strategies. (www.IleneAdamsInc.com).

 

"Lillies and Squiggles"

“Lillies and Squiggles”

 

Ilene has also worked in the non-profit art world bringing her marketing talents and creativity to an art center in West Palm Beach and working to advance art and artists in the community.  She is currently working on several community art projects to bring art to the public.

 

 

Ilene’s artistry has been seen in many local juried art shows, including Palm Beach State Eissey Gallery, The Guild Gallery, Art on Park Gallery, Whole Foods (Solo Show), Lighthouse ArtCenter (Landscapes), JF Gallery (Mediums), Palm Beach County Art in Public Places, Wellington Art in Public Places 2010, AmTrust Bank Exhibition, Riverside Bank Exhibition, Zephyr Art Show, Wellington Art Society, Armory Art Center (Student Faculty Show), LK Mix Art Exhibition, Armory Art Center, Tyler School of Art, Poster Competition – Rome, Northwood Artwalk, City of West Palm Beach Cultural Association.

Doggie in the Window!  Nina is the featured artist until March 9th at The Great Frame Up in Jupiter.  (The TJ Maxx, Office Depot, Shoe Carnival Plaza)

 

Nina Fusco’s paper sculpture passion began 20 years ago. Self-taught, she creates 3D paper sculptures by manipulating the flat surface of paper to give it life. She cuts, scores and bends the paper to create her 3D paper sculptures. Nina explores the contrast between light and dark shadows in her 3D paper sculptures. Numerous 3D paper sculpture creations by Nina, utilize hands to send a message of love, hope and working together to reach new heights. Nina’s awarding winning 3D paper sculpture pieces, collages, pencil drawings and photography have been exhibited in Palm Beach County galleries.
