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’.

ABOUT THE SHOW
We are excited to announce the artists that will be exhibiting their artwork in the 3rd Annual “Cloud 9: Let Yourself Be Seen” Art + Music Show and we hope you will join us. This year’s tagline was inspired by the curator, Dana DellaCamera’s own journey allowing her art to “Be Seen” and no longer hide or be stopped by fear of judgment by herself or others. This show is not about creating only pretty art but honest art because the truth is not always pretty but it sets us free and that makes the art vulnerable and beautiful. Every artist in the show is intimately sharing their soul and emotions through their work and point of view.
“Cloud 9: Let Yourself Be Seen” Art + Music Show is a platform for artists to “Be Seen”, be vulnerable, and share their gifts and message with the world. Cloud 9 is a world where you allow yourself to dream, trust, develop, risk, expand, take action and create without limitations, expectations or conformity! It is art straight from the heart.
All of the art that will be exhibited will be accompanied with a short paragraph from each artist stating why each piece puts them on “cloud 9″ or significance to them. The intention is for all who attend

the exhibition to participate, experience and leave inspired to “be seen” in their lives.

SEAN “IYA” HENRY

Sean “IYA” Henry – (water color, pastels, pen & ink, charcoal and mixed media)
Sean Henry, a 1987 graduate of the Jamaica School of Art and Founder and Design Director of Iya Limited, one of Jamaica’s leading screen printing and graphic houses is an artist to his core. Inspired by the scenes of life and nature around him, Sean sketches and paints the scenes. Sean explains that his work is therapeutic and that it provides him peace of mind.

Sean’s work is derived from his drawing, painting, photography and the combinations of these works, which are either water-colour, pastel, pen & ink, charcoal, and/or mixed media.  Lovers of beauty and art will get the opportunity to view the work of this talented artist as he stages his first showing in America.

Philip Michael Curtis – Painter (acrylics and pastel)
An artistic protégé, Phillip Michael Curtis; foray into the art world began at the tender age of seven. His first effort, Last Supper, toured his native Jamaica, creating a buzz about the creative future of the pint-sized painter.

Curtis’ painterly style speaks to viewers lyrically. His work pops in vibrant colors and rich tones in his preferred media – oils, acrylics, and pastels. His visible brush strokes are carefully controlled, yet can be characterized as freely impressionistic.

The artist’s music series stirs the soul as he brings in focus the sounds, movement, and smokey ambiance of the nighttime jazz scene. Not only does Curtis put viewers in the audience, his tasteful nudes, portraits, caricatures, and genre paintings of his island home brings together his varied design styles.

Migrating to the United States as a teenager, Curtis studied at New York’s FIT (Fashion Institute of Technology) and the Art Student League. He worked as a fashion and general illustrator and eventually moved to Miami where he worked as a courtroom artist. It was this skill that got him noticed – one of his paintings was featured in the film, Out of Timefeaturing Denzel Washington.

 was born in Jamaica. He earned the NDD from St. Martin’s School of Art in London, England and an MFA from Maryland Institute College or Art, USA. He has been used extensively as Consultant for Art and Craft by UNESCO and OAS in the Caribbean and represented Jamaica at several conferences and State Visits, and delivered many papers at International Meetings and Universities.

A prolific artist, he has had one man exhibitions in England, USA and Jamaica as well as exhibited in many group shows in Jamaica, England, USA, Canada, Europe, Latin America, Japan, Hong Kong, the Caribbean, Mexico, Republic of Dominica, Cuba and Botswana.

Craig uses the jeweled colors of the Caribbean’s flora, Fauna and the undulating shapes of the landscape for inspiration for many of his paintings as well as symbols of the original peoples of the New World, Africa and the Orient. His work is a rich tapestry in an Abstract Symbolism style full of luxurious textured surfaces, symbols with vibrant color. His work gives birth to new internal languages of heart, mind and soul.

Don Parchment – Photographer.
Don’s first camera was a Kodak Baby Brownie, he owned whilst attending a boarding school in the St. Elizabeth hills of Jamaica. Students were encouraged to develop their hobbies, and his has grown into a lifelong passion.

In Jamaica he developed that passion into a professional career as a fashion photographer. In the late 1980’s, he relocated to New York where he expanded into product and catalog photography. Currently residing in Florida his photography interests have broadened to include life style, travel, corporate and social events. He particularly enjoys covering concerts and festivals.

Having spent many years honing his photography skills, his trademark became his uncanny ability to make people emote.

As a photographer his constant quest for beauty in people and places is what motivates him to create images that ignite a special connection between himself and the viewer. The pursuit of capturing these images in the art of photography is his unending passion.

Iva McDaniels is a multidisciplinary artist. She holds degrees in Radio & Television Broadcasting, Communications, and Interdisciplinary Arts Education. Further, she is the author of the poetry book MOIST, a playwright, freelance spiritual and entertainment writer, and filmmaker.

The Nature of Things Jan 31 2015 (13)

Our first art walk night with FREE trolleys to 1310 Gallery, Sailboat Bend Artist Lofts was a huge success with over 200 guests coming to our gallery. The official event kicked off Saturday, January 31st the reception titled The Nature of Things, featured the art work of three of 1310 Gallery, Sailboat Bend residents: Exhibition features the work of Sylvain Denis (Shows Curator and Photographer), Barry Gross (Painter), Niko Yulis (Drawings). Curator Sylvain Denis invited outside artist Israel Ghelman (Sculptor) to participate and invited many of our residents to have open studios. Our community has received rave reviews for our participation and we are very excited moving forward.

Flagler/FAT Village’s Artwalk is held the last Saturday of every month and 1310 Gallery, Sailboat Bend Artist Lofts has jumped on board. We were invited by the Flagler/FAT Village community to join the art walk. Ft. Lauderdale has a very large and growing art community including 1310 Gallery which houses 37 artists and their families. Every month our gallery has art events curated by one of its residents. The shows vary in their themes and styles and there is always something new and provocative being shown; including musicians and performing artists. We are now offering free trolley services that link all of these venues together. Along with Flagler and FAT Village, 1310 Gallery has built a bridge to each others community and are collaborating together to put Ft. Lauderdale and it’s amazing artists on the map.

The full photo album of the art walk is listed here on our FB page along with many of our upcoming art events. Please like, share and invite your friends.

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.
