[Performance]  RCAD Celebrates Black Artistic Achievements with “Spectrum” Exhibition
Andrew Fabian, andrew.fabian@srqme.com

As historical narratives continue to evolve and become more attuned to the contributions of the disenfranchised, African American art has found itself increasingly at the center of appreciation. Whether it’s contributions to music by way of blues, jazz or hip-hop, or with the rediscovery of Harlem Renaissance greats like Zora Neale Hurston, there have invariably existed many Black artists that produced work deserving of the same merit as their white contemporaries. And RCAD extends this appreciation with a special exhibition called, “Spectrum: A Celebration of Artistic Diversity.”

The exhibition features celebrated African American visual artists across a broad scope of styles and mediums, including paintings, quilts, prints, sculpture and drawings. Artists that rose to prominence in and around Harlem feature prominently throughout, with pieces that capture a slice of the Black NYC experience during the prodigious outpouring of arts during the 1920s. The flagship piece is a collage by Romare Bearden titled, “Jazz II Deluxe.” With its absurdly exaggerated figures of musicians and frenetic composition, one can almost hear the ambling virtuosity of a saxophone solo or the sporadic cymbal crashes of a drumbeat in odd time signatures.

While many of the featured artists were making explicit comments on the issues surrounding racial equality in the US, others simply sought to paint for the sake of painting. “African American heritage is a common thread,” says Tim Jaeger, “but not all of it deals explicitly with social issues surrounding blackness.” Landscape paintings from Edward Mitchell Bannister, a Black Canadian-American tonalist painter, evoke the pastoral magic of the French Barbizon movement, while brightly colored, surreal landscape works from Richard Mayhew belie his strong ties to the Civil Rights movement.

Jaeger is most excited for the collection of works from Jacob Lawrence, whose Cubist portrayals of African Americans at work was one of the first of its kind to spotlight the everyday Black experience. “If I had to steal a piece from the whole exhibition,” says Jaeger, “it would be Builders #3.” He and any other aspiring art thieves will have until February 6th to do so. There will also be a reception from Newtown Alive on January 18th to commemorate the exhibition.

[Visual Arts]  From Wave to Wood
Brittany Mattie, brittany.mattie@srqme.com

Focused on nature and aesthetics, Dominika Zabczyk of DominiqArt developed her senses and techniques by chasing the wind and soaking in the salty. Her acrylic paint and layered resin splash onto mediums of wood and canvas—creating wave-crashing motifs from a drone’s eye view. Inspired by the “new-age perspective” of drone footage and photography, the local designer and artist often uses sky point photos to emulate in her art. And to get it as close to the real thing as humanly possible, she’ll often spend hours scouring the shoreline of Lido to gain visual insight on how the waves unfold and roll onto the beach. “I go to study the water, I watch the foam and the sand as the waves come in; I study every detail so that I can recreate it in my art,” Dominika says. After creating the different colored pigments of her resin from the ink of markers, she pours layers of the viscous substance—in whatever varying shade of blues she chooses to show clarity and depths of the “water”—onto her hand-painted medium. “With 15-20 minutes to play,” before the resin solidifies, Dominika uses her fingers to organically spread the flow of the pour, as well as a heat gun to create lacing and air bubbles that mimic the ebb and flow of waves crashing ashore.

While a good bit of Dominika’s collection can hang on the walls as alluring artwork, many of her other pieces also act as daily-use products. Whether a cutting board, serving tray/platter, dish bowl, longboard or skateboard, the freeform waterscapes are artful reminders to never move to a state that is landlocked. “My mission is to show you the beauty of nature—contemplate its colors, motion, texture and how it affects you,” she says. 

Dominika is also an ambassador for organizations Clear Blue Sea and 5Gyres, who work to bring awareness to the dangers of ocean pollution and remove waste from our coastlines. Every sale donates 10% to support their missions. Find DominiqArt featured throughout the upstairs of Green Zebra’s new downtown restaurant, as well as at Tampa Indie Flea & Green Market—this coming Sunday, January 19 at Armature Works.

[Philanthropy]  Sarasota Military Academy raises $82,000 through Donor Match Campaign

In December, cadets from Sarasota Military Academy (SMA), a local, public charter school, received an opportunity from a donor, Ms. Phyllis Siskel, to earn $50,000. Siskel, a long-time supporter of SMA, announced plans to match all contributions to the Academy up to $25,000. However, when $41,000 was collected, Siskel decided to match the additional funds for a total of $82,000 raised.

When Siskel brought this unique opportunity to raise $50,000 with her $25,000 match, SMA staff and cadets began raising awareness through social media and email campaigns. The original goal of matching Siskel’s donation was achieved before the end of 2019, and as the goal was quickly surpassed, Siskel responded with an update to her original match. 

“Being involved with Sarasota Military Academy has been an incredible blessing, and I’m proud of the impact this Academy has in our community,” said Phyllis Siskel. “It is so important that we give back to organizations we believe in. Whether it is time or money, find a cause that you believe is worth supporting and do your best to help them succeed. My hope through this gift is to teach others about giving, while supporting the wonderful staff and cadets at SMA.”

"A woman of gold always leaves a trail of glitter; Ms. Siskel shines of all colors, especially gold!" said cadet Ghermyia Anderson, a sophomore at Sarasota Military Academy.  

Throughout her involvement with SMA, Siskel has donated her time and energy, along with generous funds, to the Academy’s high school and Prep middle school campuses. Her donations have assisted in providing classroom materials, opportunities for extracurricular activities, cafeteria equipment, and more, and she is known to staff and cadets for serving lunch in the cafeteria and assisting around the school.

[Healthcare]  Florida Surgical Clinic’s Dr. Jenna Kazil First on Florida’s West Coast to Offer New Procedure for Dialysis Patients

Florida Surgical Clinic is stepping forward to address the challenges that kidney failure patients face by offering a new non-surgical approach to prepare patients for dialysis. In the process they are improving patient care and bringing hope. This past Wednesday, Florida Surgical Clinic’s Jenna Kazil, MD successfully used the new WavelinQ EndoAVF System that allowed her to create this dialysis access with a non-surgical technique. The system uses two small catheters which are inserted into an artery and a vein, magnets help pull them together, and radiofrequency energy creates a connection that can be used for access. This technique avoids some of the risks associated with an open surgery including scarring. “This endovascular, or non-surgical, approach allows us create a dialysis access with patients who have end stage renal disease which requires fewer maintenance procedures, which has been shown to last longer overall. “We are proud to bring this new healthcare technology to dialysis patients on Florida’s West Coast. It reflects our vision of bringing innovation and making it available to our great community,” said Florida Surgical Clinic’s CEO.

[Cyber Security]  SouthTech COO to Speak at Upcoming GCBX Event

In collaboration with the Gulf Coast Builders Exchange (GCBX), SouthTech has organized a fireside chat moderated by fellow members that will discuss the fundamentals of cybersecurity planning for small businesses. SouthTech COO, Nathan Bailey, will be joined by David Karins of Karins Engineering and GCBX Chairman. The chat will be framed around the NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology) Framework, which is considered the gold standard of cybersecurity protocol for both government agencies and the private sector. 

GCBX is a trade organization whose members represent the commercial contracting industry, and businesses in this industry have specific cybersecurity concerns. Some of these concerns include securing the mobile devices used by field crews, training office workers to recognize phishing attacks, and prevent the theft of executive credentials.  

“In our increasingly digital world, cyber risk is an important issue for contractors to understand and manage.  Firms should be taking some key proactive cybersecurity steps now, because those steps can end up being the difference between a brief inconvenience and a total crisis,” said Bailey.  

“GCBX members have become increasingly concerned about cybersecurity issues, so we felt it was imperative to provide this type of educational event to assist the membership.  We anticipate that this may be the first in a series of cybersecurity educational symposiums,” said Mary Dougherty, Executive Director of GCBX.

[SOON]  MUSEUM: Manuel Álvarez Bravo: Specters and Parables , December 8 – March 1

Born and raised in Mexico City, where he spent most of his career, Manuel Álvarez Bravo (Mexican, 1902-2002) was one of the most important figures in 20th century Latin American photography. Although he took art classes at the Academy of San Carlos, his photography was mostly self-taught, but he was savvy to the emerging international artistic avant-garde. Considered to be one of the founders of modern photography, his work extends from the late 1920s to the 1900s. He was a key figure from the period following the Mexican Revolution—often called the Mexican Renaissance—in which arts and literature flourished. This “Renaissance” owed to the happy—though not always tranquil—marriage between a desire for modernization and the search for an authentic national identity with Mexican roots, in which archaeology, history and ethnology played an important role. Support for this exhibition has been provided, in part, by the Ringling Endowment at the Florida State University Foundation. Paid for in part by Sarasota County Tourist Development Tax Revenues.

[SOON]  MUSEUM: Syd Solomon: Concealed and Revealed , December 15 – April 26

Concealed and Revealed offers a unique selection of paintings by the artist, along with numerous objects from the Solomon Archive on view for the first time. Syd Solomon (American, 1917-2004) described himself as an “Abstract Impressionist” alluding to the fact that his work infused impressionism into the processes, scale and concepts of Abstract Expressionism. Solomon moved to Sarasota in 1946 with his wife Annie. His was the first work of contemporary art to be collected by The Ringling in 1962. His paintings were greatly influenced by climatic factors and reveal a fascination and concern for Florida’s aquatic environment. Solomon incorporated his experience as a camouflage designer during World War II into his painting. It is not well-known that he was also an accomplished graphic artist, who in his early years designed commercial signage for prominent hotels and businesses in Sarasota. Like his work in camouflage, Solomon’s calligraphic skill was essential to the development of his later gestural abstraction.

Syd Solomon: Concealed and Revealed is presented in partnership with the Estate of Syd Solomon and is accompanied by a 96-page publication with essays by former curator at The Ringling Michael Auping, George S. Bolge, Dr. Gail Levin, and Mike Solomon. The exhibition will include artworks from private collections and The Ringling’s permanent collection.

Created and choreographed by Yin Mei, an artist of the Chinese diaspora who has been part of the New York dance scene since the 1990’s, this new dance theater piece for five dancers melds themes from the iconic Chinese literary work The Peony Pavilion and Yin Mei’s own life experience as a teenage government dancer during the Chinese Revolution. Highly visual and referencing a dense collection of letters she wrote to her family over two decades, the work is a dance painting that occupies the space between truth and dreams.
