JACQUES DE BEAUFORT

Posted on 16 October 2013 by Lisa Rockford

Jacques de Beaufort is an artist and filmmaker living in Lake Worth, Florida where he is an Associate Professor of Visual Art at Palm Beach State College. Over the last decade, since receiving his MFA from the California Institute of the Arts, de Beaufort has worked steadily towards the construction of a unique and visionary surrealist cosmology expressed through his paintings created while working “in the contemporary space, but to always be reaching for a realm that exists outside of now but simultaneous with both the past and present”. De Beaufort has exhibited extensively in South Florida, New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, and London and has received substantial critical support for his work including his first feature length film Sanctum and Sacrum, music videos and the founding of his project space UNIT1 Exhibitions in Lake Worth, FL.

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.

Tracing the Imaginary Art Opening

Posted on 16 October 2013 by Niki lopez

https://www.facebook.com/events/611016248941423/
The exhibit opening Saturday October 19, 2013 at 1310 Gallery Sailboat Bend Artist Lofts reflects on the work of daughter and mother. The exhibit, “Tracing the Imaginary” focuses on the artwork of daughter and mother. Both women share a similar trajectory starting their carrier as a raw artist. Sonia Baez-Hernandez after a decade of working in art and sociology got a MFA at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Francisca Hernandez began doing ceramic after retired. In 1998 Hernandez began to develop her drawings and mastering skill.

Hernandez’s drawings transport the audience to imaginary gardens, symbolism, and fragmentation of multiple spaces. In contrast, Baez-Hernandez experiments with a realm of micros organic or anthropomorphic forms that emerge as part of a dialogue between surrealistic overtones, and gestural marking. The exhibition includes two-dimensional pieces, installation art, found –object assemblages, and a performance by Baez-Hernandez. Some of their artworks transform the pitch of illness into artistic expressions and emanate therapeutic value.

“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

“ROUGH & TUMBLE” Art Exhibition–Curated by Lisa Rockford

Posted on 20 August 2013 by Lisa Rockford

ROUGH-TUMBLE-PC-8x12-FLAT copy“ROUGH & TUMBLE” Opening with FAT Village Art Walk
The Projects Exhibition space in Fat Village Arts District
523 NW 1st Ave, Ft Lauderdale, FL 33301

First View/ArtWalk: August 31, 7-10pm
Second Reception/ArtWalk: September 28, 7-10 pm
Closing Reception & ART FALLOUT Event: October 5th, 5-9pm.
Admission: Free & Open to the Public

Artists from South Florida and beyond will occupy an 8000 square foot warehouse and alternative exhibition space, creating new works that hang from the rafters, conform to, and are inspired by the unique site. Installation art, mixed media, Sculpture, Video art, and Interactive works are included.

29 artists in the exhibition were selected through a part juried, part invitational process. The artists are linked by their fresh approaches to the ROUGH & TUMBLE theme. Selected artists were asked to respond to the following definitions; ROUGH: “characterized by violent, random, disorderly action and struggles, unrestrained, marked by bursts of destructive force or intense activity,” and TUMBLE: “an unorganized collection or mixture of various things, described as Raw, Textured, Volatile, and/or Arbitrary, Hybrid forms.”

New artworks, custom-made for the site, will be unveiled for the first time by half of the artists, including Gabrielle Wood, Erman, Stacy Streeter, Cara McKinley, Martin Casuso, and Kerry Phillips.
Upon entering the rollback doors to the warehouse, visitors will be drawn to the enticing artworks of Clara Varas, Jee Park, and Michael Covello.
Jee_Park-Untitled -1
The forceful, yet calculated brushstrokes of Clara Varas, graduate of The School of Visual Arts New York, are an exploration of coastal cities and their disappearing natural habitats, issues concerning displacement, migration and identity. Scratches, marks and streaks are combined with hidden images and well-placed additions of collage and unidentified globular substances.
Clara Varas, "Backwash Number Two"
In the artists’ own words: “Much of my work is done on cut, torn or crumbled paper using collage and assemblage as a way to explore and blur the lines between sculpture, painting, drawing and installation. I seldom exhibit my work the same way twice since I never really consider a piece finished, but rather an evolving thing which is constantly and spontaneously reacting to its immediate surroundings.
Michael Covello, a graduate student at the University of South Florida, is also influenced by his surrounding landscape. His work combines 2-dimensional abstractions with found objects that deliver a commanding physicality as they tumble from the painting onto the floor.
Michael Covello, "In the weeds"

Michael’s elegiac statement describes the connection between his inspiration and creations: “My childhood was a rupture within the sparkling tapestry of suburbia. Surrounded by an emerald patchwork of manicured estates, the bedraggled household of my upbringing sat within this affluent community as an eyesore. The malignant tones of an overgrowth of weeds, the sour grime of an abandoned swimming pool, the vulgar olive-toned shards of a discarded bottle; these characterized my immediate landscape. And from this early age I realized that this space was marked, as was I, as a product of domestic disturbance, socio-economic inferiority, psychological deterioration, and neglect. This reality, along with the constant effort of my family to escape our circumstance, became two schematics through which I understood the world. I work in the studio the same way I navigate the memory of that environment from my childhood. My paintings are born out of the unkempt, where things aren’t clean or easy. Things are messy. They interrupt themselves. They fall apart. They are salvaged and repurposed. Gestures pile up like dirty dishes in the sink. Colors work paycheck to paycheck. And in the dense spaces I create, formal elements need to work hard if they are going to succeed; otherwise they get swallowed up into the humming dissonance.” His 20 foot wide installation will be newly birthed for this exhibit.
Viewers will next be confronted by a life-size tank; a kinetic sculpture created by Ryan Farrell. This ambitious 25 foot sculpture, a replica of the Abrams tank, is characteristic of his process, using recycled materials derived from transportation vehicles; in this case, it is primarily made of bicycle parts. The unit is designed to be operated by 3 live performers.
Other imposing works include six artworks that hang 19 feet down from the rafters of the vaulted ceiling. Artist Randy Burman was the first to install “Fever In The Funk House,” made of linear elements that tumble down in an orderly configuration. The components, which have now been uniformly pruned, were collected or found by the wayside.
RANDY BURMAN

Kerry Phillips, who lovingly devotes her time to re-purposing discarded objects and transforming them into sculpture, will also be creating an installation from ceiling to floor, using only items that were found on, or around the site of the warehouse.
Florida natives Remy Bordas & Marisa Finos were inspired by the tumultuous nature of the James River in Virginia, where they recently moved, because according to the artists, it is the “site of many historic (often brutal) events in our nation’s early history, and still continues to serve as a site of transition and transformation–influencing lives across the entire state of Virginia.” “Through James” is a sound and video installation focused on abstracting the experience of approaching the James River when it is at its roughest. For this exhibit, the artists are creating a 12 foot “tunnel” in which viewers will symbolically cross through the river. Proposed installation by Remy Bordas and Marisa_Finos
Viewers can also interact with artworks by Paula Kolek, Matthew Falvey, and Andres Ramirez. Andres Ramirez’s video and fabric installation, “La luz y la carne” is another sort of tunnel, in this case representing stretched skin. He allows participants to walk into the fabric structure as “they too become part of the fetish, by pushing and pulling the fabric and becoming one with the actions happening in the video. “
Andres ramirez- Laluzylacarne
Visitors will be also simultaneously repulsed and attracted to fleshy, visceral works of Miranda Burns, Rosemarie Romero, Gabrielle Wood, and Caroline Collette, which involve pre-chewed gum, partially concealed porn and “muff” magazines, and fleshy silicone, embedded with human hair.
Other artists like Stephanie Cafcules and Paul McClelland were selected for their use of rough or raw materials. Stephanie Cafcules is interested in seeing how far she can push the physical properties of her chosen material, allowing for unexpected and uncontrolled outcomes. Stephanie will be creating a colossal installation from scavenged polystyrene, which has been manipulated and transformed with spray paint and acetone to possess an intriguing rock-like, textured surface.
Detail of work by Stephanie Cafcules

Paul McClelland’s installation “GW Series” involves a cluster of disembodied George Washington heads, made of cast cement, worked over with a decayed and partially eaten surface. The heads will “bloom” and morph throughout the course of the exhibit, as they grow a mossy green casing. Paul’s second work, “Stress Test,” a mechanical, kinetic sculpture that involves a chisel being hammered into a cement head, will dominate the vast space with the reverberating sound of metal hitting metal. Paul describes “Stress Test” as “a situational experience that will create an atmosphere of annoying repetition not unlike a water torture.”
Paul McClelland "Stress Test #1"
The exhibition is housed within “The Projects North,” in FAT Village ARTS District, the leading exhibition space for monthly art walks in Fort Lauderdale. There will be two public receptions, on Aug. 31 & Sept. 28, as part of the monthly (4th Saturday) art walk in FAT Village, which spans 4 square blocks and is populated with artist’s studios, galleries & other creative businesses. To see images of a few previous exhibits in the space, go to http://www.fatvillageprojects.com/

The closing reception for Rough & Tumble, on Oct. 5, will be 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.

Transforming Risk Art Exhibit

Posted on 17 May 2013 by Niki lopez

“CHANGE IS THE NEW STATUS QUO. TO THRIVE, YOU MUST EMBRACE RISK.” -Nerissa Street
Facebook RSVP & more info

ADMISSION IS FREE.
For more info contact: Nerissa Street
Artists, filmmakers, performers push the envelope.
The result?
Their risk is your reward.

Free to the public.

What if your story is just what someone needs to hear to step out on faith?
Join us for Transforming Risk: on Saturday, May 18, come to 1310 Gallery between 7 – 9pm.

Tell us the story about the risk you are taking.
Maybe you’re a single dad who is changing to a lower paying job so you can spend more time with your little boy. Or maybe you’re finally going to put away the broken heart and date again. This project redefines risk; it doesn’t mean danger. It means freedom and joy.

If you are an artist, bring 1 to 3 pieces no larger than 4 ft x 6 ft that will be hung that night (our wall space is huge). Performers, bring yourself and your CD or images of your work. Contribute work on the night of “Transforming Risk”, and get 3 – 5 minutes on-camera to tell your story to our audience. Tell us your story: How does your work take a risk? How are you taking a risk by being a creative professional?
Selected interviews will be edited together for a closing and follow-up event on Friday, June 7.
