Studio 18 In The Pines Presents Transitions

Featuring the art works of:

Curated by Robyn Vegas

Opening Friday, January 3, 2014 – Closing February 13, 2014

My transitions showpieces offer a glimpse into my creative process and the relationship between my drawing and sculptures. My sculptures bring to life the shape of water by transforming flat satellite images of Florida waterways into constructed wood forms: while my drawings bring to life the energy of flowing water that often goes unnoticed. This interplay between the physical presence of the sculptural works and the energy of the drawings makes Florida’s waterways difficult to ignore.  Michael Harris

This series is particularly meaningful to me. These graphite pencil and watercolor paintings of ballerinas were originally intended for a show in August 2013 at Studio 18 in the Pines, called “On Common Ground”. I had initially simply wanted to create a series of beautiful images of ballerinas and the “common ground” was the stage they performed on. However, my entire focus changed somewhat when I began to experience some serious personal health issues and had to request to be excused from the “On Common Ground” exhibition at Studio 18. I continued to work on the series, though I was experiencing a great deal of pain, fear and uncertainty about my life expectancy…but I kept working on them. And then suddenly I was seeing this kind of parallel- I was feeling so much pain and feeling so unwell, why was I even persisting in painting and drawing this series everyday? And then as I studied all of these images of these beautiful ballerinas I wanted to draw, I could see the pain that they suffered through to create this phenomenal Art form. I could see the strained and aching muscles; understand the “work through the pain” mentality that drives these women in the creation and perfection of their art form. As I continued to progress through the series I noticed that I began to use black in a number of areas where I could feel the pain of these dancers’ muscles. I could see that they were suffering through their pain to create their Art as I was doing by persisting with the series when all around me were saying “stop”, “you don’t have to finish it”, “everyone will understand if you don’t or can’t finish”. But I understood their drive and dedication as my own. I made it my own. I made it, I finished the series and I am proud that I did…I hope I did these incredibly devoted Artists justice. Dawn V

Iron Palette Art Battle At Hollywood ArtsPark

I am looking forward to participating in South Florida’s first Iron Palette Art Battle located at Hollywood Arts park, Sunday, December 15, 2013 from 7-10pm. 

Iron Palette Art Battle

Four prominent South Florida artists will be painting in a two hour timed painting battle.  Lori Pratico, Richard Del Ponte, Tabitha Blaine and Jacklyn Laflamme will compete for the Iron Palette Trophy and cash award, winner takes all event.   

The artists will be given their subject matter ½ hour before the painting starts and they are allowed to use the media of their choice.  The competition will be judged by the audience with a live voting system that puts the winner in the audience hands.

After the painting ends at 9 pm, there will be a auction of the finished pieces and awards ceremony.   This event is appropriate for all members of the family as these great artists create their vision on a large 36 x 48 canvas on stage, live.
