iPhoneography Workshop: Cutting Edge Technology Capturing Our World Is A Snap

The Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse and Museum’s new Hands-On History series is dedicated to creative & unique experiences tailored to give participants an expanded and diverse perspective on Florida heritage and our environment. iPhoneography; a unique iphone/ipad shooting and processing workshop will be offered February 7, 2015, from 9:00 am-4:30 pm at the Museum. The instructor, Cindi Hobgood, has more than 25 years as a film and television scout for major Hollywood studios.

Since it’s invention, the iPhone has become the most used camera in the history of photography. In this information-filled intensive workshop, participants will discover the creative process beyond just simple photo snapping. From capture to final image, you’ll be introduced to some of the best apps out there for creating images beyond your wildest imagination!

Cindi has learned to create stunning works of art by developing awareness and mastering the best apps. She’ll be teaching how to get the highest resolution when setting up your iPhone and apps. Students will practice techniques that include HDR (High Dynamic Range), shooting multi-row panoramas, and use the latest editing, filters and stylizing apps. Students will learn about a myriad of iPhone equipment, including lenses (yes, you read correctly!) and how to turn beautiful photos into masterful works of art.

Scouting for the entertainment industry sent Cindi and her camera to more than 20 states and 10 countries where she found the perfect stage for “the boy to kiss the girl, the battle to be waged or the child to romp in the jungle.” Cindi’s use of the iPhone has been recognized internationally for her distinctive style of art. Her work has been exhibited at various galleries across the United States, earning her numerous awards, most notably The Mobile Photography Awards, winner of the Perfect Photo Category in 2011, three honorable mentions in 2013 for Photo Journalism and Architecture/Design, and the Best Mobile Photography and Art Images of 2013. She currently leads workshops across the country with an upcoming workshop in Italy.

High Tea is Served at the Norton

People around the world have been drinking tea for centuries. The beverage became the center of cultured social gatherings long ago, not to mention an industry influencing health and welfare. The role played by tea, especially in the upper echelons of society, has also had a profound influence on art as artists and connoisseurs devoted themselves to the creation and selection of art in the service of tea. The Norton exhibition, High Tea: Glorious Manifestations East and West, is the first to examine this influence globally, focusing on eight key cultures – China, Korea, Japan, England, Germany, France, Russia, and America. The exhibition, organized by Laurie Barnes, Elizabeth B. McGraw Curator of Chinese Art, is on view at the Norton Museum of Art from Thursday, Feb. 19 through Sunday, May 24, 2015.

Spanning 1,200 years from the 700s to the 1900s, the 182 objects in High Tea are drawn from numerous museums and private collections around the world and include ceramics, metalwork, paintings, fashion, furniture, lacquer, and glass. Fabulous tea-related works, from paintings depicting tea parties to clothing worn at tea time, created by notable artists, artisans, and designers such as Mary Cassatt, Paul Revere, Christopher Dresser, Wilhelm Wagenfeld, and Charles Frederick Worth are highlighted in High Tea. Ornate tea sets, pots, urns, cups, and saucers by esteemed design houses such as Fabergé, Meissen, Gorham, the Sèvres Porcelain Manufactory, and others are also featured in this unique exhibition. “In bringing together so many different items from so many cultures, it is truly stunning to see the international impact that a drink has had on just about every aspect of art and culture,” says exhibition organizer Laurie Barnes. “The exhibition shows that tea has not only been a soothing beverage for centuries, but an important, if unheralded, inspiration to the arts.”

High Tea is divided into geographic sections pinpointing key historical and artistic events, with objects in the exhibition illustrating important milestones in each culture as well as major cross-cultural interactions. In China, Korea, and Japan, for example, the practice of drinking tea spread from Buddhist temples to the secular upper class. Initially, emperors, kings, and nobles prepared and drank tea in the same manner as monks. Over time, elements such as entertainment were introduced. A Portuguese princess, Catherine of Braganza, married King Charles II in the 1660s and introduced the beverage to England. It caught on with the public thanks to the British East India Company and entrepreneurs like Thomas Twining, whose tea shop catered to women consumers, and later, Thomas Lipton, who catered to the middle class. In every tea culture, what began as a religious or aristocratic ri

In every tea culture, what began as a religious or aristocratic ritual spread far beyond those origins, adopted and embraced by the greater community in each country. High Tea illustrates not only how drinking this beverage became a global tradition, but also dramatically influenced art and culture.

Programs and activities related to the High Tea exhibition include:

Cleansing the Mind: Tea at Imperial Courts in China / 3 p.m. Sunday, Jan 25, 2015 / Art historian Freda Murck, a former resident of Beijing who amassed a substantial collection of tea ware now in the British Museum, provides an advance taste of High Tea, describing how connoisseurship of tea and its material culture contributed to a person’s cultivation throughout the imperial era and beyond.

High Tea: Glorious Manifestations East and West Curator’s Conversation / 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 19, 2015 / Laurie Barnes, the Norton’s Elizabeth B. McGraw Curator of Chinese Art, and organizer of the exhibition discusses the relationship between tea and art. Also, the Armory Art Center’s Ron Shaw presents a raku demonstration. (Raku is a type of Japanese Pottery traditionally used in the Japanese Tea Ceremony.)

Chinese New Year Celebration / Noon to 8 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 21, 2015 / Free to the public. In conjunction with High Tea, the Norton celebrates the Chinese New Year with a day of exciting programs. Festivities include: a dragon dance, a concert by the critically-acclaimed group Music From China, art activities for all ages, holiday refreshments, tours of High Tea and the Chinese Collection, and more!

First Under Heaven: Korean Ceramics and Tea Wares / 3 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 21, 2015 / Part of the Chinese New Year celebration, scholar Robert Mowry introduces Korean ceramics from the early periods through the 19th century, emphasizing characteristics and innovations that are uniquely Korean, and exploring relationships between Korean and Chinese ceramics.

One for the Pot: Silver Tea Wares in Colonial and Federal America / 3 p.m. March 8, 2015 / Beth Carver Wees, Curator of American Decorative Arts at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, examines the range of silver tea vessels used by early Americans, infusing her talk with literary references and anecdotes associated with tea-drinking etiquette.

Family Studio: Glorious Manifestations 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Saturday, April 4, 2015 / A perfect interactive family activity for ages 5-12: Tour the exhibtion to learn how tea influenced cultures worldwide.

Triumph of Love at the Norton

The Norton Museum of Art has been given the rare opportunity to select works for an exhibition from the collection of Beth Rudin DeWoody, considered one of the world’s foremost collectors of contemporary art. The result is The Triumph of Love: Beth Rudin DeWoody Collects, on view from Feb. 8 through May 3, 2015. Cheryl Brutvan, Norton Director of Curatorial Affairs and Curator of Contemporary Art, calls DeWoody, “one of the most fascinating, adventurous, and passionate collectors of contemporary art.” The part-time West Palm Beach resident, who has been collecting since the 1970s, has amassed a collection of nearly 10,000 paintings, sculpture, works on paper, and photographs. She also has a reputation as one of the best-informed contemporary art collectors, according to Brutvan. Brutvan will interview DeWoody during a “Conversation with the Collector” at 3 p.m. on Feb. 8, the opening day of the exhibition.

DeWoody is a longtime supporter of the Norton, serving on its Photography Committee and funding the Museum’s biennial Rudin Prize for Emerging Photographers, which is named after her father, the late real estate developer Lewis Rudin. She also has donated art to the Norton’s permanent collection. With space the only limitation for the exhibition, The Triumph of Love, features approximately 200 works and is structured to reveal Rudin DeWoody’s enthusiasms and concentrations in her collection. Drawings and sculptures are well-represented strengths in her collecting. In fact, the exhibition title is based on a colorful, early drawing by Cy Twombly. (Because her exceptional photography collection alone numbers nearly 1,500 images, it will be the subject of an exhibition next season.)

Other artists represented in the exhibition include American Bruce Connor (1933- 2008), and Swiss artist Sylvie Fleury (b. 1961). Connor’s funky assemblage sculpture, Drum (1962), is one of 10 pieces in DeWoody’s collection by this influential California artist and represents her interest in recent historical movements and the physical character of some of her choices. It is in contrast to Fleury, another artist she has pursued in depth, acquiring 15 silver- and gold-plated sculptures by her. Fleury’s work is characterized by appropriating consumer culture through luxury goods as seen in the work Prada Boots (2003). Both pieces are in the exhibition. Other featured artists include: Nicole Eisenman, Karl Benjamin, David Wojnarowicz, Isamu Noguchi, and Jim Lambie, among many others.
