THE ARTISTS

David I. Muir, a native of Jamaica, is a fine art photographer living in South Florida. He has a special love for candid, cultural and lifestyle photography – signature components of his exhibits. He excels at capturing prix vrai cialis a whole story through his lens, which often emits strong emotion from viewers of his work.

Muir’s work has qualified for juried art contests as well as group and solo fine art exhibitions.

Muir’s love affair with photography began in the early 1980s when he would take his father’s camera to school and capture images of campus life in Kingston, Jamaica.

The transformation from hobby to profession propelled the growth of David’s portrait and event photography business, DAVIDiPhoto Inc. The commercial photography business is recognized as the premier event photography business of South Florida’s Caribbean- and African-American communities.

Muir co-founded and produces Caribe Arts Fest, an annual international art festival based in Broward County, Florida that includes events at the Museum of Art, in Fort Lauderdale, along with visual art exhibitions, performance art showcases and educational artist workshops.

Muir has been featured by numerous Jamaican and American media houses, including the Miami Herald, Sun-Sentinel, Hot105FM, NBC-6, ABC-10, FOX, CVM (Jamaican TV), TVJ (Jamaican TV), Jamaica Observer and the Jamaica Gleaner.

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. She currently resides in the rtist community of 1310 Gallery, Sailboat Bend Artist Lofts.

Resilience: Survive. Grow. Thrive. – Exhibit opening

Posted on 13 May 2014 by Niki lopez

Interactive arts event brings Resilience to Foster Care Youth 


Artists:
Andrew Innerarity
Terri Meredith
Patr
Dennica Pearl Worrell

Collaborators:
1310 Gallery
Be Your Own Answer
Cameras For Kids Foundation
Voices for Children of Broward County
Prizm Art Fair
Supreme Esteem, Inc.

FORT LAUDERDALE – When you ask Neri Street, a community advocate and public speaker, what the word “resilience” means, she lights up. “It’s the concept that will make our community sustainable, address changing job markets, and how we teach the next generation of youth,” she says. “Innovation lights a spark, but resilience keeps the fire burning.”

On Saturday, May 17, Street curates an interactive arts and storytelling experience designed to immerse the audience into Resillence. That is the theme of 1310 Gallery’s 6th Annual May Arts Extravaganza. Every May since 2009, Street has collaborated with artists to raise awareness for causes supporting children and families. e.

“Resilience is critical for everyone, even for people whose lifestyle appears to be easy,” says Andrew Innerarity, an internationally acclaimed photojournalist whose work will be displayed at the event. “No one gets a completely easy path.”

That night, the event will feature 2-dimensional artists pushing the envelope on their work, and inspired performance. It will also feature short films (comedy, drama and experimental) on resilience, and the audience may choose to participate in “An Exercise in Resilience”. A portion of proceeds from any sales that evening supports Cameras for Kids, an innovative program that builds resilience in Broward’s foster care teens.

Betsey Chesler launched Cameras for Kids after volunteering with orphanages in South Africa. She saw how empowered vulnerable teens were behind a camera, and saw the same needs right here at home. Her program is now across the US and Canada. Funds go towards purchasing a basic point and shoot camera, memory cards, photography printing, framing, and shooting trips. “Photography opens a door that allows the kids to see their own potential,” says Chesler, “and it gives them an innovative skill set.”

Cameras for Kids works locally in partnership with Voices for Children and HANDY (Helping Abused Neglected Disadvantaged Youth), but they need community investment to continue. Street and Chesler have come together to raise the funds to sustain the program. The teens’ photography, and other select pieces at the event, will be on sale to support the program—which gives the youth a direct experience in entrepreneurship.

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.
