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

“I take the minerals from the earth, that at one time were dirt powders, when fired up to between 2200 – 2300° they Transition into beautiful pieces of Art” John Antzack

Artist In Residency Studio 18 In The Pines

Artists are inspired and have the gift to inspire others, the best way to unite people is through art. The opportunity for a residency at Studio 18 In the Pines is such an honor. As a resident artist I will have the chance to serve the community, collaborate with other artists, paint, sculpt and exhibit my work, as well as share my craft by teaching workshops, all in a beautiful inspiring environment.  I feel certain that this residency will be a great opportunity for me to get involved, not only to have space to work but to come together with all the Studio 18 artists to create colorful new projects.

Studio 18 In The Pines

As part of the residency I propose to initiate a community engagement, public art project. I am looking forward to collaborating to implement art into our communities. I am certain that working together, we can all make a difference to continue to bring art and culture to the City, promoting Studio 18 and the City Of Pembroke Pines as a cultural destination.

I am so honored by this incredible opportunity and I would like to thank The Cultural Council of Pembroke Pines, Robyn Vegas, Sharon Sammarco, all the staff and all the artists at Studio 18. Your amazing support has been instrumental in helping me to realize my dream, to once again be at home at Studio 18.

Thank You all so much, I only hope that I can accomplish all that my imagination is imagining…
