Call to artists. Deadline May 27. What’s your Elephant art exhibit

Posted on 09 May 2016 by Niki lopez

Deadline for entry: May 27, 2016
Installation dates: June 15-17, 2016
Opening night: Saturday June 18, 2016

Open to:  all mediums.

Paintings, Sculpture, Installation art, Video art, Mixed media, 2D & 3D works.  Preference given to

interactive & installation pieces.

Submitted artwork should fit or complement the theme “Elephant in the Room” which can be either conceptual or literal in context:

Media themes seeking: controversial, hidden agenda, taboos, secrets, discrimination, inequality, privileges,  challenges to social norms,  masks,  cover -ups and other uncomfortable issues we sometimes choose to hide.

Let’s go there again! “What’s Your

Elephant” as in ‘the elephant in the room’ is metaphorical idiom for an obvious truth that is either being ignored or going unaddressed. The idiomatic expression also applies to an obvious problem or risk no one wants to discuss, It is based on the idea that an elephant in a room would be impossible to overlook; thus, people in the room who pretend the elephant is not there have chosen to avoid dealing with the looming big issue.

An important and obvious topic, which everyone present is aware of, but which isn’t discussed, as such discussion is considered to be uncomfortable.

There will be a panel discussion as well as a month-long interactive piece inviting the community to share their ‘elephant’.

Artists are welcomed to  participate  in a community outreach art project  with local at-risk youth.  Artists who are interested in volunteering in the art project please contact the producers of the show.

By using photography, art, personal wishes and desires and sending them out to the Universe via a postcard.  She is photographing the image, the art and handwritten desire. This book is a beautiful, visual representation of people creating and manifesting their greatest desires.

The books being created are meant to inspire through collaboration using art and photography.  She is currently giving workshops on photography, art, transformation and manifestation.

She is the author/publisher of Creative, Fun and Easy Tips on How to Photograph Children 10mg levitra and Animals and Smart-Ography: Simple Tips on the Art of iPhone and Android Photography (Amazon). Caprio has been featured and interviewed on her Postcards to the Universe book and project on blog talk radio shows Sterling Spin Radio and Meaningful Connections. She has also been featured numerous times in the local newspaper Sun Sentinel: Broward and Palm Beach News on her work. Caprio also features her work on a regular basis in fine art galleries in South Florida.

Melisa Caprio (www.melisacaprio.com) is an inspiring and experienced photographer. She received a fine art degree from Florida International University. Caprio was one of the selected few asked to study with renowned curator and historian, John Szarkowski, Director of Photography at New York‘s Museum of Modern Art– MOMA (1962-1991).

Eliane Harvey

ElianeEliane was born in Brazil moved to United States on her twenties. She is a self-taught artist, who learned a lot by reading about the old masters like Leonardo Da Vinci, Michelangelo, Rafael, and others.

Throughout her life, Eliane has spent a lot of her free time drawing, painting and taking workshops from artists all over Brazil and United States.

Eliane attended and studied mechanical design at the SATC Technical School in Brasil. As she continued her art career while working for Cecrisa and Ceusa as a ceramic tile designer. The tiles that she designed were produced in Brazil and offered for sale in both Brazil and Europe.

Composing is the focus point of her finely detailed paintings, and the final result of her art works are due entirely to how it naturally composed itself.

“I love to create with the respect of human form, but no accepting the way things are I must formulate my own vision. Creating visions on canvas is a sense of relief for me. It allows me to interpret my feelings and share them with the world. My bodies of work communicates energy and mystery”. – Eliane Harvey

Christinevstone About the Artist:

BIG, BRIGHT AND BOLD! That’s how I would describe my acrylic paintings. They are scenarios that depict happy, care-free, romantic, uplifting events and places.

In this crazy world, full of stress and worry we need an outlet, a place to escape to, even if just in your mind. I would like to share a place with you. So come get away from it all for just a moment in time. When you gaze upon the painting feel the soft blanket as you sit down , let the color and scenery envelope and take you to a happy space in time, where there is joy, peace and serenity. Breathe in the fresh air, hear the birds, feel the breeze…smell the pretty rose awaiting you there… be still and know He is God! My faith keeps me centered and inspired for the happy things in life that I have been blessed with. My hope is that these blessings will be portrayed and expressed through my art.

I was born in Brooklyn, NY, moved to Livingston NJ, when I was two, lived there until my pre-teens. At a young age I showed an interest in art…coloring books were pushed aside, my preference plain paper and a pencil so iI could draw my own fascinations and designs. My dad traveled the world with his job, I missed him so much and would connect by drawing landscapes of where I thought he might be . I remember him being impressed with how similar the landscapes were to the topography of where he had been on his trip. So my mom enrolled me in a summer art course. We moved to the Berkshires in western Massachusetts when I was 11 and that’s where I developed my love for art. I attended middle school and high school there spending a lot of my free time in the art room. I graduated from Lee High School with an art scholarship and proceeded on to earn my Associates Degree

in Visual Arts at Berkshire Community College.

My father died when I was 13, a few short years after moving to Lee in Berkshire County. I missed him so much that I wanted to learn more about his family heritage. After college I moved to Medellin, Colombia, to live with relatives. There I learned to speak Spanish and put the finishing touches on my education. I attended La Academia Superior de Arte. My course of study included; a combination of art, architecture and design. It was an intense 4 year study of which I attended 3 years. Family issues called me home to the U.S.
As life goes on we grow, we move and change…wounds heal…we grow some more and move forward…we search to find ourselves only to discover we are right here….where God has placed us….

Presently I reside in the Ft. Lauderdale, Florida area. My art is on display at Studio 19 Fine Art in Ft. Lauderdale. My art has also been exhibited at Art Vue Galerie, in beautiful Historic Cocoa Village, Florida and at Windisch-Hunt Gallery in Coconut Grove, ,Florida I have also attended many juried art shows in South Florida; Broward Art Guild, River of Grass, Pembroke, downtown Art and Living Expo at beautiful Lake Eola, Orlando and Howard Alan Fine Art Shows, Las Olas, Naples, Jupiter and Juno Beach.

The Nature of Things Art exhibit opening at 1310 Gallery + Open studios during #‎flaglerartwalk‬ with FREE trolley service

Posted on 23 January 2015 by Niki lopez

Saturday, January 31, 2015
7pm -11pm
Presented by Sylvain Denis + 1310 Gallery:

The Nature of Things

Art exhibit opening at 1310 Gallery + Open studios during #‎flaglerartwalk‬ with FREE trolley service

For further information please contact this month’s curator:  954-541-4646 oremail

 Facebook RSVP

The Nature of Things (by Sylvain Denis)…
“It’s make me think about how things are, also there is nature element in my images and Israel sculptures.  It is also about the way things are or can be represented, Niko’s drawing are exaggerated version of people shape and anatomy and I feel like it can be a true reality of their look. Barry painting have a deeper meaning about people innerself and sole, good or bad it is nature of this world.

This event will have 4 artist:

  • Stone sculptures by Israel Isi Ghelman
  • Photography, by me Sylvain Denis
  • Drawings by NikoYulis
  • Paintings by Barry Gross

About The Curator:

Sylvain Denis is a resident photographer and curator born and raised in Montreal, Canada. Currently residing in Fort Lauderdale where he works as a commercial freelance https://www.acheterviagrafr24.com/achat-viagra/ photographer. Sylvain started his interest in photography at a young age influenced by his own experience as a young model for a fitness publication based in New York City. Since 1994 Sylvain has captured the American Southwest landscape; this collection will be showcased during the exhibition here in 1310 Gallery.

This collection spans a 20-year career sampling his time across the United States from Antelope Canyon, a sandstone canyon carved from flash floods to Monument Valley on the edge of Utah. The American Landscape is constantly basked in hues and waves of light, which change every few minutes, making it probably one of the most challenging places to photograph.

Sylvain’s camera of choice is a medium format film camera, known for their larger size negatives that are transferred into digital files through the process of Drum scanning, which give the highest image resolution possible. Those images are then printed on to metallic paper compressed between polished plexi-glass for their superior glossy and finished look.

Bio of Israel Ghelman:

I studied sculpture, ceramic and drawing in Caracas, Venezuela. In Florida, clay in the Fire and Mud Studio, sculpture in Broward College and work as a Sculpture Lab Assistant.  Participated in group shows in Broward and Palm Beach.  Took part in the Mosan art symposium in South Korea, where I carved a monumental piece in granite for the Museum.
At this moment in my life I decided to sculpt in stone. I take pleasure in the physical contact with the rocks, could be because I love the mountains and life outdoors or for some other reason but they attract me… I think that, in some way, they are sculptures in their natural state… They are part of nature and I analyze their origin, where they “grow” and to which “family” they belong. I am doing it for the last six years, and love to work on them, trying to bring out what they would like to express.

I like to incorporate details and organic forms, but it is essentially abstract art. Passionate about the three-dimensionality of sculpture, in my newest pieces I introduced the rotation on a pin to have a 360 degrees view.  Showing off my sculpture, I intend to provoke intellectual and emotional enjoyment in the viewer of my work.

Bio of Barry Gross:
Artist Barry Gross is a figurative/surreal realistic painter . He primarily works in oils on Belgium linen and delves into mixed media as an under painting and works the painting up with oil. Barry also does drawings using graphite/charcoal and oil sticks on hand tinted Asian rice papers. Barry is in the collections of Malcolm Forbes of Forbes Magazine, Elton John,
Coca Cola.

Satire & Social Commentary in Industrial Sculpture

Broward North Regional Library Auditorium
1000 Coconut Creek Pkwy. (Bldg. 62 Room 154)
Coconut Creek, FL 33066

FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC
Sculptor and self-proclaimed “shop-rat” Taylor Pilote’s work is a exploration of what it means to be a young, reckless male navigating through contemporary culture with high art interests and a low brow upbringing, all under a smooth, meticulously polished exterior. After receiving his MFA from the University of South Florida Pilote has worked and exhibited throughout the U.S., Canada and Paris. Employing the visual language of automotive exteriors he attempts to conjure a variety of reactions to his materials and subject matter simultaneously as difficult or farcical issues are presented in a slick, seductive manner.

Broward College’s North Campus expands upon its inaugural 2012 / 2013 Artist Talk series with a new line-up of some of South Florida’s most groundbreaking, local and internationally acclaimed artists visual artists. Each of the up and coming and internationally renowned artists involved will present the diverse concepts and aesthetics within their respective bodies of work and direct a hands-on workshop the following night to further allow the public to experience and learn from their artistic processes.

“FIBER OPTICS” @ 1310 Gallery = OPENS SEPT. 21, 2013

Posted on 09 September 2013 by Lisa Rockford

Art Exhibit Transforms the definition of “Fiber Art”
FIBER OPTICS @ 1310 Gallery
Curated by Lisa Rockford
1310 SW 2nd Ct., Fort Lauderdale, FL 33312
Exhibition Dates: September 21 – October 11, 2013
Opening Reception: Sat. September 21, 7-10pm
Second Reception/ ART FALLOUT Event: Sat. October 5th, 5-9pm
Closing Reception & Awards: Fri. October 11, 7-9pm
Admission: Free & Open to the Public

“Fiber Optics” is a comprehensive group exhibition of 42 emerging artists that exemplify fresh, innovative approaches to “fiber art.” The artists selected have reinvented traditional craft processes such as embroidery, crochet, knitting, weaving, sewing, and quilting. Rather than follow prescribed methods, they merge traditional craft with sculpture, installation, and video art; and utilize unexpected materials that transcend their banal origins with integral symbolism. Though the approaches are unconventional, technique, precision, and aesthetic appeal are still at the core of their processes.

The opening night will include two performances, ongoing throughout the evening, by Belaxis Buil, and Karelle Levy, who will both mantle themselves with their knitted and sewn fabric installations.
There will be at least $750 in cash prizes, in addition to great exposure for artists. Several guest judges, comprised of gallerists, art collectors, and art critics will attend the exhibit and vote for their favorite artworks. The artists with the most votes will win the prizes.

Confirmed 2013 GUEST JUDGES:
· Shana Beth Mason, Critic
· Noor Blazekovic, Founder, IRREVERSIBLE Magazine
· Kelli Bodle, Assistant Curator, Boca Raton Museum of Art
· Jim Drain, Internationally renowned Artist
· Rochi Llaneza, Curator & Gallerist
· Doug McCraw, Founder of FAT Village Arts District & Art collector
· Marisa J Pascucci, Curator of 20th Century Contemporary Art, Boca Raton Museum of Art
· Samantha Rojas, Swan Communications
· Helmut Schuster, Galerie Schuster Berlin/Miami
· Mindy Shrago, CEO, Young At Art Museum

ART FALLOUT
There will be a special reception on Oct. 5, as part of the 4th Annual ART FALLOUT Event. ART FALLOUT is a collaboration between Girls Club Art Collection, 1310 Gallery, The Museum of Art Fort Lauderdale, FAT Village Arts District, 3rd Avenue artists, and other local venues. There will be a shuttle bus rotating between each of these locations. Multiple venues will host their own new art exhibitions simultaneously for one night, and all events will be FREE, and open to the public.
