NEW EXHIBITION SPACE OPENS AT THE CENTER FOR PERFORMING ARTS BONITA SPRINGS

Center for Performing Arts Exhibition: The Art of Ballotti, Merchant and Unwin
Opening Reception Thursday, June 30, 2016; 6:00-8:00pm at the CPABS

The Centers for the Arts Bonita Springs (CFABS) invites art lovers to join them at their new Center for Performing Arts Bonita Springs (CPABS) exhibition space for their Center for Performing Arts Exhibition: The Art of Ballotti, Merchant and Unwin Opening Reception On Thursday, June 30, 2016; 6:00-8:00pm. This exhibition includes the varied mediums of artists Jennifer Unwin, James Ballotti and John Merchant. The opening reception offers guests the opportunity to explore the CPABS campus filled with intriguing artwork in this curated exhibition.

The Opening Reception offers the public the opportunity to meet three of the area’s leading artists and to view a wide variety of their original artworks while enjoying light hors d’oeuvres and wine at the Center for Performing Arts Bonita Springs at 10150 Bonita Beach Road, Bonita Springs, FL 34135.

“These three artists possess an astounding complexity and variety in their work,” says Ehren Gerhard, Shows & Exhibitions Director of the Centers for the Arts Bonita Springs. “This promises to be a very interesting exhibition.”

Artist, Jennifer Unwin studied commercial art, layout design, and fashion illustration at the Art Institute of Pittsburgh. She led a successful career as an advertising designer and fashion illustrator in Connecticut before moving to Florida. Her earliest artistic memories are sketching on a plastic covering over a television screen following along with John Gnagy’s television show “You are an Artist” in the 1950’s. This exhibition will display both her realist and abstract work revealing the breadth and range of her vision.

James D Ballotti started photography in 1968 at the age of seventeen. Over the following years his camera went almost everywhere with him. He is self-taught and has studied everything he could find on the subject. On a limited budget, his goal was to make every shot count. The images on display for this exhibition are part of a series of original photographs taken from the back door of his condominium in Bonita Springs. You will be surprised by the intensity and variety provided by his intentionally limited vantage point.

John Merchant has drawn and painted since childhood. He studied art for five years at the College of Art in Sheffield, England. Nothing engages John Merchant as intensively as stone carving. The rock tells him how it wants to be carved. His intuitive process leads to phenomenally emotional and engaging work. Attempting to reveal indescribable thoughts and emotions, his task of shaping the stone to serve his vision is complemented by the cataclysmic forces that shaped the rock’s origin.

The Exhibition is on display from June 30 – August 24, 2016 at The Center for Performing Arts of Bonita Springs, 10150 Bonita Beach Road, Bonita Springs, FL 34135. Hours are Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Exhibition Opening Reception Admission is free.  Future Center for Performing Arts Exhibition Opening Receptions are scheduled for August 25, and October 27 from 6-8pm, and will showcase three CFABS faculty or member artists and selected through a curation process.

For more information, please call the Centers for the Arts at 239-495-8989 or visit them on-line at www.artcenterbonita.org.

Friday, June 10, 2016; 6:00-8:00pm at the Center for Visual Arts Bonita Springs

By Patrice Shields

On Friday, June 10, 2016; 6:00-8:00pm the Centers for the Arts Bonita Springs (CFABS) invites everyone to join them at their Elements of Abstraction Exhibition Opening Reception. The first in CFABS’ monthly summer series of juried exhibitions, Elements of Abstraction showcases artwork from artists working in a variety of media with over 100 pieces of abstract representations. CFABS’ exhibition openings are a local favorite, offering residents the opportunity to mix and mingle with fellow art lovers and local artists while enjoying hors d’ oeuvres, wine and music.

“Using of the elements and principles of design, artists were challenged to create a visual language that communicates ideas and emotions,” says Ehren Gerhard, Shows and Exhibitions Director of the Centers for the Arts Bonita Springs. “This approach to visual art is always a great exercise for both the artist and viewer.”

The Elements of Abstraction Exhibition, which remains on display through June 23, offers visitors an opportunity to take a step out of reality and jump into a world where line, shape, texture and color influence emotions in unexpected ways. Abstract art can have a transformative effect on the viewer and artist alike. One local artist whose life and art has been transformed by the medium is Bonita Springs resident and emerging artist Betsy D’ Jamoos who has two striking acrylic pieces “Bravely Apart,” and “Making Space,” included in this exhibition.

“My artistic process began as a child when I was told she had no artistic talent by a teacher,” says D’Jamoos. “It took 40 years to conquer the voice in my head that said I cannot paint or draw.”

Betsy DJamoos Theresa Girard Workshop

Following a successful career in consulting and government policy, D’Jamoos’ picked up a paintbrush for the first time in 2014 when attending a workshop by artist Theresa Girard at CFABS. Proving its never too late to follow your creative calling D’Jamoos art was chosen this year as one of only 16 artists from across the State included in the Baker Museum’s Florida Contemporary Exhibition. D’Jamoos’ art was also shown at the Center for the Arts of Bonita Springs (CFABS) 26th Annual Members Juried Exhibition and CFAB’s 2016 “Surf and Turf” exhibition and hangs in private collections in Southwest Florida.

Two mallards untangle from each other and explode into flight. A grizzly bear claims a salmon from a stream and warns with his eyes that this is a meal he is not sharing. Stallions display their superiority to rival onlookers as a four foot tall swine sits appearing to be in “hog heaven.” Those are just four of the 45 sculptures on display at SANDY SCOTT: A RETROSPECTIVE Exhibition on display at the Center for Visual Arts Bonita Springs October 2 through December 31, 2015. This national exhibition which also includes 35 of her etchings and drawings, opens in conjunction with a campus wide open house on Friday, October 2, 2015; 6:00-8:00pm. GuestCFABS Shows & Exhibitions Director Erin Gerhardt and Artist Sandy Scotts will have an opportunity to meet the artist Sandy Scott at the opening reception.

“SANDY SCOTT: A RETROSPECTIVE is a dynamic collection of work that reaches deep into the expressive and emotional characteristics of sculpture,” says Centers for the Arts Bonita Springs Shows and Exhibitions Director Ehren Gerhard. “Visitors will experience the intensity of a moment and the drama of a gesture through the eyes of Sandy Scott”

Born in Dubuque, Iowa in 1943 and raised in Tulsa, Oklahoma, Sandy Scott currently works in Lander, Wyoming in a studio near the foundry that casts her bronzes. Scott maintains studios on Lake of the Woods, Ontario, Canada, and in the mountains of northern Colorado and is an avid outdoorswoman who loves to hunt and fish. Scott has made 16 trips to Alaska and to Europe, Russia, China, South America, and Africa to visit the world’s great museums. She believes wildlife artists should be in the field to accurately present their subject to the viewer.

CFABS Shows & Exhibitions Director Erin Gerhardt and Artist Sandy Scott

A lifelong interest in aviation has been invaluable to Scott’s work as an artist. A licensed pilot for 50 years, she says, “I believe my knowledge of aerodynamics has been helpful in achieving the illusion of movement in my bird sculptures,” said Scott. Her knowledge of aerodynamics was particularly evident in Mallard Duet, a sold out sculpture that won the Ellen P. Speyer Award at the National Academy of Design in New York. This sculpture is in the permanent collection of Brookgreen Gardens and the National Museum of Wildlife Art.

Sandy Scott is IMG_8996on the teaching staff of the Scottsdale Artists’ School, and the master sculpture workshops at Brookgreen Gardens, Murrells Inlet, South Carolina. She is a member of The National Arts Club New York, NY, the Society of Animal Artists, a fellow in the American Artists Professional League, and a fellow of the National Sculpture Society.

FAB Fall Classes at the Centers for the Arts Bonita Springs

NEW FALL CLASSES AT THE CENTERS FOR THE ARTS BONITA SPRINGS

New Mosaics, Sculpture and Printmaking Classes with Artist/Instructor Kel Campbell

By Patrice Shields

Kel_Campbell_Sculpture_DeckSeptember is “back to school month,” and the perfect time to try a new class at the Centers for the Arts Bonita Springs.  The Center has added several new instructors and with them new classes that include printmaking and mosaics.

“We are very excited by the infusion of fresh energy that our new instructors bring to the center,” says Jake Hand, Education Director at the Center for the Arts Bonita Springs.  Three new instructors, all graduates of FCGU will be teaching classes that include “Introduction to Metal” and “Exploring Mosaics.”  “Kel Campbell will be putting the printing press that was recently donated to the center to good use by offering a number of printmaking classes in the fall.”

Kel Campbell is an award winning, multi-disciplinary artist that considers her style in the multimedia sculptural genre, without a commitment to any particular style.  Campbell recently graduated from Florida Gulf Coast University (FGCU), with a BA in Fine Arts, views the world around her as her toolbox.  “I enjoy collecting and repurposing materials that show their history and then combine them with newly formed pieces to achieve a sense of balance,” says Campbell.

Loula_Kel_Campbell_SMALLFor as long as Campbell can remember, she has loved the arts.  “There were a few times in my life when I tried to break-up with my creative side,” says Campbell “but they were short lived due to my undeniable deep passion to create. For me, one of the hardest parts about being an artist is my interest in so many different materials.”

Campbell’s passion for creating has given her experience with multiple mediums that translate into new classes at the Center for the Arts.  For students interested in mosaics, Campbell will be offering a five-week “Exploring Mosaics” class, Mondays from 1:00-4:00p.m., beginning October 7.  Students can expect a great introduction to the world of mosaic art with a focus on the basic techniques of design, cutting and laying tile and cementing and grouting the final work.  For students interested in mosaics who don’t know where to start, a three-hour “Mosaic Introduction,” mini class will be offered on Friday, November 8.

Students interested in printmaking will enjoy “The Art of Collagraph,” a mini class offered Friday and Saturday, October 4 and 5.  The collagraph is a printmaking technique based in collage.  Students will start with an idea and a blank plate, then collage diverse materials to create a surface with various thicknesses and textures.  During the second class, students will work on basic inking and printing techniques that result in prints that often surprise and delight.     Kel Campbell Mosaic Frame with Mirror Blue SMALL

In January, students interested in delving deeper into printmaking can take “The Monotype- A Printmaking Intensive.”  Often referred to as the painterly print, monotype combines the immediacy, spontaneity and expressive mark made possible in painting with the luminosity of printmaking inks. Each student will explore their own images with an emphasis on experimentation and creativity; bring your ideas and create beautiful one of a kind prints.

In January Campbell will be teaching sculpture at the Center with classes that include “Expressions in Stone,” and “Independent Study in Stone.”  Students will learn the “how-to” of stone sculpting from choosing the perfect stone to getting a feel for and working with its texture to make their very own masterpiece in stone.  Advanced stone sculptors can take “Expressions in Stone (Pneumatics)” and be guided through the intricacies of sculpting with power tools.

“From welding to pastels and everything in between I wish I didn’t have to sleep so I can just keep exploring ideas,” says Campbell.  “The positive side of it is, the words ‘I’m bored’, have never left my lips because there is always something to do or visualize.”

Metal Sculpture_Kel_Campbell_SMALLWith the assortment of new classes offed this fall at the Centers for the Arts the words bored will not be part of your vocabulary either.  Taking that printmaking, sculpting or mosaic class is even more affordable now.  Those who join the Centers for the Arts for the first time before September 30, 2013 will receive a free 4-, 5-, or 6-week class to be used by December 31, 2013.  The Centers for the Arts offers this promotion for first time members.  Call the Centers for the Arts at 239-495-8989 for more information or visit www.artcenterbonita.org.

Campbell’s work can be seen in the Centers for the Arts Bonita Springs’ September exhibition, “Recording the Landscape.”  This exhibition explores art that documents changing landscapes and art that actually changes topography to draw our attention back to the planet on which we live.  The exhibition is on display through September 20, 2013.

There are Two Sides to Everything The Art of Joan Brechin Sonnenberg

ImageBy Patrice Shields

“There are two sides to everything,” says artist Joan Brechin Sonnenberg.  The theology behind her statement describes both her personal and artistic philosophy. As an artist Sonnenberg combines abstraction and realism to create oversized artworks that layer concepts and ideas into works that stop observers in their tracks.

“I came from a family that combined religion and politics.  In doing this we always found there was a middle of the road,” says Sonnenberg.  Now a resident of Naples, Sonnenberg began her art training 70 years ago at the age of six as a child prodigy attending pre-college art scholar classes at the Carnegie Institute.  Sonnenberg continued her education attending Chatham College and graduating with a BA College of Fine Arts from Carnegie Mellon University where she was the staff cartoonist to the editor of the campus newspaper.  Sonnenberg continued on to study Multi-colored Intaglio Printmaking with George Nama at Pittsburgh Center for the Arts and Non-Toxic Printmaking with Keith Howard at Peace River College.

“Joan is this walking dichotomy,” says Susan Bridges President of the Center for the Arts Bonita Springs.  “A petite, soft spoken person with huge artworks that are totally in your face.  Knowing Joan for over 15 years has been a joy—her continued evolution as an artist—always stretching ideas out farther and farther.  She has this exquisite ability to take an image, move it back and forth between abstraction and realism and arrive at her very own dialog.  It’s truly wonderful to experience her art.”

The depth of Sonnenberg’s talent and mastery appears subtly but unmistakably in her work.  Sonnenberg’s enormous portraits offer insight into the soul of each subject without judgment or commentary.   Sonnenberg will often stop subjects and ask if she can take their picture to paint.  Bonita Springs resident Richard Theurer saw an article about the Center for the Arts Bonita Springs’ Portrait and Figure Exhibition in a local magazine that include a picture of her work “Art Aficianado.”  Theurer immediately recognized his image in the larger than life artwork and remembered yeas back that a woman had stopped him at Costco and asked if she could take his picture to paint.  Joan Brechin Sonnenberg was that woman and “Art Aficianado,” was the painting.

Image

For more than 70 years Sonnenberg still find time to paint every day.  “It’s a passion.  It’s something I want to do more than anything else,” says Sonnenberg.  “I think being an artist and painting is the most fun you can have in this world.  If there’s something you want to do in life, you’ll find the time.  It’s out there for you.  Go for it.”

Joan Brechin Sonnenberg’s work can be seen at the Center for the Arts of Bonita Springs 24th Annual Members Exhibition, January 25 through February 21, 2013.  Open only to current members of the Center for the Arts of Bonita Springs, this exhibition is the ‘crème de la crème’ competition for our member artists. A very tightly pre-juried and judged collection of artworks from our members showcasing the best artists and a wide variety of media and styles.

Andy Warhol’s 15 Minutes of Fame Continues for 25 years

Marilyn Monroe by Andy Warhol MediumPop Art with Andy Warhol Exhibition at the Center for the Arts of Bonita Springs
Opening Reception and Open House October 5, 2012 

Patrice Shields

Andy Warhol’s infamous statement, “In the future, everyone will be world-famous for 15 minutes,” becomes ironic when applied the artist himself.  This pop artist’s fame and impact on the world of contemporary art has far surpassed the quarter hour mark to span a quarter of a century.  In the 1960’s, Warhol turned the art world inside out by elevating common objects into iconic works of art, giving birth to what is known today as the “Pop Art Movement.”

The Center for the Arts of Bonita Springs celebrates the artists eternal 15 minutes of fame with their fun and interactive Pop Art with Andy Warhol” exhibition which opens on October 5, 2012 and runs through January 5, 2013. 

The opening reception takes place from 6:00-8:00p.m. on Friday, October 5, 2012. The evening is free and open to the public and will feature live abstract artworks in music and dance and opportunities for visitors to create their own abstract imagery at unique ‘Creation Stations.’

This unique and interactive exhibition featuring the whimsical spirit of the art of Andy Warhol and the Pop Art movement is composed of three parts:

  • The Silkscreen Studio. Here visitors can try a variety of art-making techniques used by pop artists, including silkscreen printing, stamping to make repeat patterns, and making objects using die-cutters like Warhol’s famous Brillo Boxes.
  • The Factory.  Visitors can dress up like the characters they see in some of the Warhol artworks, play with toys like those collected by Warhol, and learn more about art and Andy Warhol through books and video installations.
  • The Gallery.  Here visitors can view examples of Warhol’s iconic prints like “Marilyn Monroe,” and learn about the life of this unusual artist.

Throughout the exhibition the Center for the Arts offers Free Saturday Family Activity Days from 1:00- 3:00p.m.  Activities feature a mini-lecture of the exhibition, and a variety of artistic ‘Pop Art’ projects for children of all ages and families to create and take home.

“So, as the question goes, why Andy Warhol and Pop Art?” asks Susan Bridges president of the Center for the Arts of Bonita Springs.  “Well, Andy Warhol was an accomplished advertising illustrator and graphic artist before he became well known as a Pop artist and celebrity.   The focus of our exhibition, two years in planning, is to feature the whimsical side of his artworks and his ideas.  His work is fun, entertaining and speaks to a number of ideas that at the time were even controversial.  For example, take any one of his pop art, mainstream, commercial-like images of products, people or places.  Questions asked are as often about the objects themselves as the fact he made art about them.  For example, a product so simple as a bottle of Coca-Cola.  Andy made suggestions like ‘the President drinks a bottle of Coca-Cola, Elizabeth Taylor drinks a bottle of Coca-Cola, I’m drinking one, and the panhandler you just gave a dollar to went into a store, bought one, got his change and he’s drinking one.  Regardless of who it is, it’s the same, we’re all equal.  Or, why should it be that in museums, the artwork that’s in them is just for those special, enlightened people.  Art is everywhere, everything and for everyone.   Fun things to think about while looking at Andy’s bright colors, entertaining imagery.”

The appeal of Pop Art and Warhol’s work is universal and continues to command attention with both popular culture and discerning collectors.  The Warhol foundation is selling several of his pieces through Christie’s Auction House, includes “Three Targets,” a large horizontal black-and-white canvas of paint and silkscreen depicting three targets with gunshots; which is expected to sell for $1-$1.5 million.  Campbell’s has turned the tables on Warhol’s packaging genius by introducing a special-edition can of its condensed tomato soup bearing labels reminiscent of the pop artist’s paintings.  The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City has forty-five of Warhol’s works on display for their “Regarding Warhol,” exhibition which runs through December 31, 2012.

The “Pop Art with Andy Warhol,” exhibition is generously sponsored by the Sansom foundation and runs from October 5, 2012 through January 5, 2013.  The Center for the Arts of Bonita Springs is open Monday through Friday from 9:00a.m.- 5:00p.m. and on  Saturday from 1:00-4:00p.m.  For more information contact the Center for the Arts of Bonita Springs at 239-495-8989, or visit them on line at www.artcenterbonita.org.  “Pop Art! The Andy Warhol Studio” is circulated under the auspices of the children’s Museum of Pittsburgh.

Those who join the Center for the Arts for the first time receive two tickets to one of this season’s Live at the Promenade events. The Center for the Arts offers this benefit for first time members and it is for a limited time only.
