Keeping in theme with Society Scene’s philanthropic coverage, local artist Jadria Wenstrom – who donates 10 percent of sales from her artwork to a different charity each month – made this piece for our 2013 Arts Issue. She works at Gallery 928, a fine art gallery at 928 NE 20th Ave., Fort Lauderdale. Wenstrom uses paint, charcoal and pencil, but created the piece, at left, with only Sharpie, proving art can be made with anything.

Editor's note Be your own

A

curator

museum curator is responsible for editing a collection suited for its patrons - whether it is pieces of accessible beauty or works that elicit emotion. And as individuals we, too, are given the option of what to seek in life. In essence, we are our own curators. Through this issue, the Society Scene team shares our view of the current arts scene in Palm Beach County where photographer Kara Starzyk has been busy documenting a variety of artwork, artists and their establishments. Page 10 features Scene & Be Seen coverage from the “Canstruction” event that featured aluminum cans repurposed into works of art. Page 12 shares information about the Young Singers of the Palm Beaches hosting its annual “Broadway Artists Studio” summer program for aspiring performers. With an eye for art and a heart for the community, Herencia Experiential Art Center offers more than just gallery space for underprivileged children. Featured on page 14, owner Veronica Sirotzky, a trained clinical social worker, has implemented “Listening Sessions” where people can freely share their problems. Accumulating the county’s myriad arts events is a bold task that assistant editor Elissa Rosen conquered. She shares current events and exhibitions in the arts calendar on page 19. On page 22, Nadia Sorocka details the recently reopened South Florida Science Center and Aquarium, which offers educational exhibits about local bodies of water and encourages children in a creative learning environment. Numerous arts-related events and public murals are blossoming in downtown Boynton Beach, making up the Boynton Beach Arts District (BBAD). On page 24, reporter Jan Engoren shares the countless

opportunities that make this one of Palm Beach County’s newest and grandest hubs of cultural discovery. This summer, University of Florida student Brittany Bokzam, who’s interning with the team, has assisted Society Scene’s digital production. As a comic fan, she shares the local comic scene on page 30, which details the fan community of this alternative form of art. Inspired to explore my own inner artist, I enrolled in a ceramics course (photographed at right, by Starzyk) with instructor Brett Thomas at AutoNation’s Academy of Art + Design. I registered for a five-week course, which was so much fun, that I extended it to the 10week session. After 10 weeks of working in clay, I still hadn’t had enough so I am currently halfway through my second 10-week session of classes. It’s opened me to a community of both beginning and advanced artists, where we can all get lost in our work. Making mistakes, learning from them and growing each class has taught me a lot about making art and also about life. I’m taking the hand-building course, but most of my classmates work on the pottery wheel. Collectively, we’ve made everything from platters to sculptures to bowls – lots of bowls. Thomas has helped us grow as artists – no matter our skill level, or lack of – in an atmosphere free of judgment surrounded by positive energy. My mundane candle holders have transformed into large, textured platters with the help of him gently challenging us to pursue our own greatness. This issue, like our cover photo, gives you the tools to paint your own art scene. So go ahead, challenge yourself to curate a life of beauty right here in Palm Beach County. Meredith Clements Society Scene Editor

Students practice with the pros at ‘Broadway Artists Studio’

oung Singers of the Palm Beaches is presenting its second annual “Broadway Artists Studio” through Aug. 3. This year’s show-stopping lineup of special guest artists is getting a standing ovation from area parents and their teens, ages 12-20. Last year’s inaugural “Broadway Artists Studio” was a sell-out success, and the 100 spots for the 2013 edition are filling up quickly. The summer intensive offers a select group of area kids a bite of the big apple with classes by professional faculty direct from Broadway, with combined experience of more than 50 shows. All levels of voice, acting and dance will be offered. Created by venerable Broadway performers Jason Gillman, Jackie Bayne Gillman and Greg Graham, “Broadway Artists Studio” classes will be taught by the artistic directors along with guest faculty, including Kris Koop and Cara Kjellman. Headlining master classes are special guest artists including Joshua Bergasse, Emily Skinner and Justin Huff, a New York casting director. Bergasse is the 2012 Emmy Award-winning choreographer for NBC’s musical drama “SMASH,” in which he also stars as Josh. Bergasse also choreographed for Fox’s “So You Think You Can Dance” and performed on Broadway in “Movin’ Out,” “Hairspray,” “The Life” and “West Side Story.” Skinner was nominated for a Tony Award and received a Drama League Award as Daisy Hilton in the Broadway show “Side Show.” She’s starred in Broadway’s “Billy Elliot,” “The Full Monty,” “Jekyll & Hyde,” James Joyce’s “The Dead” and

Danc ting classes la th Broadway Br dw Artists Studi Dance and acting att the Studio. Phot Photos bby Ja Jason Gill Gillman

the revival of “Dinner at Eight.” Huff is a casting director at Telsey & Company and has cast the Broadway and national touring productions of “Newsies,” “Kinky Boots,” “Jekyll & Hyde,” “The Addams

Family,” “Spider-man Turn Off The Dark,” “The Gershwins’ Porgy & Bess,” “Bonnie & Clyde,” “Catch Me If You Can,” “Rock of Ages,” “Legally Blonde” and “High School Musical,” among others.

“We have students who often ask us, ‘How did you do it? How did you get to Broadway?’” said Gillman. “The answer is simple: training, training, and more training. Even more important is the

quality of the training. There is simply no replacement.” “Broadway Artists Studio” expects professionalism from every student regardless of age, experience or ability. They are expected to arrive prepared, checked in and ready to begin class each morning at 9 a.m. Students are responsible for their own sheet music, scenes, dance apparel and any other studio-related materials. Each student must be committed to work as a team, regardless of the size of an individual’s role. “We have developed a program for talented students who are highly motivated to improve their technique and who are aspiring to a career in the performing arts,” said Gillman. “‘Broadway Artists Studio’ exposes students to current high level industry professionals who share their knowledge and expertise acquired along their own path to Broadway. We want to instill a sense of professionalism and the work ethic needed to become a professional in the very demanding, fast-paced, and extremely competitive world of show business.” For the second year, “Broadway Artists Studio” is produced by Young Singers of the Palm Beaches (YSPB) with support from the Kravis Center for the Performing Arts. YSPB celebrated its 10th anniversary as Palm Beach County’s youth choir — an award-winning, world-class troupe who have not only performed at concerts all over Palm Beach County, but also at Lincoln Center in New York City, with Native Americans in New Mexico, and at international music festivals in Salzburg and Vienna.

he The Herencia Experiential Art Center is not your typical retail art gallery. It is an art gallery with a mission: To promote vitality in the community through visual arts. The unique combination of offering both affordable art and emotional wellness has put the gallery well on its way to bringing healing and hope to the West Palm Beach area. The gallery supports the community by featuring a variety of work from local Palm Beach County artists. One of those artists is Andres Suarez, a Peruvian-American photographer and medical professional. Suarez’s “photoart” adds an original twist to photographs of ordinary objects and activities by adding his signature abstract editing effect. The gallery is also displaying pieces by emerging artist Katie Dominguez, a Suncoast High School student, and Peter

Oftinoski, a veteran Palm Beach County sculpture and painter. Herencia’s focal point is undeniably the Listening Center, located in the center of the gallery. It is here that founder and owner Veronica Sirotzky hopes to encourage emotional wellness while avoiding conventional stereotypes or stigmas often times associated with mental health services. The Listening Center is a place where individuals can share their problems with a compassionate, caring individual who will listen unconditionally. Sirotzky, a trained clinical social worker, guides the sessions. “At only $30 per session, we want to encourage people to use these sessions as a resource to overcoming life’s challenges.” Herencia is the Spanish word for “heritage” and “inheritance,” and Sirotzky wanted to find a way to have the center live up to its name. So, she set up the Herencia Scholarship Program

South Florida Science Center and Aquarium gives patrons an underwater tour By Nadia Sorocka

T

he South Florida Science Museum first opened its doors in 1961 as a project by the Junior League of the Palm Beaches to bring science to the children and families of South Florida. “Our mission used to be much longer,” said CEO Lewis Crampton, “but, now it is: open every mind to science.” That is exactly what the museum is doing with its recent $5 million renovation and expansion, which doubled the size of exhibit space, added 10,000 gallons of aquarium space, and added interactive and hands-on learning areas around each corner. The expansion also came with a new name: South Florida Science Center and Aquarium. The center worked with Living Color Aquariums to create the aquarium design. The Fort Lauderdale-based company is the star of “The Fish Tank Kings,” a television show on National Geographic Wild. “The aquariums will be featured on the show … later this month or [in] early August,” Crampton added. The idea behind the aquarium is to move from the Gulf of Mexico into the Atlantic and inland to the Florida Everglades. In the first tank, children and their parents can explore the Gulf, which includes a four-foot Mori Eel, sharks and a few other surprises. “The pop-up tank is by far the biggest attraction in the aquarium,” said Rebecca Shearer, aquarium curator. “Children have an opportunity to feel like they are actually swimming in the aquarium by ‘popping-up’ into the center of a six-foot-tall circular tank. This allows them to have a 360

degree view of some of the most beautiful fish in the world.” As guests explore the aquariums, they are able to see fish they’d find offshore or off their backyard dock. Another favorite is the touch tanks, which allow museumgoers to touch creatures like sea urchins, starfish and rays. “The children absolutely love to touch the animals, and this experience is something they never forget. Typically, they walk away with a much deeper appreciation of the ocean and Everglades ecosystems and how we can do our part to keep them healthy,” she said. The aquarium has touch tank demonstrations all day long, and every Saturday at 2 p.m. guests get an opportunity to touch an American alligator. Every other day from 1 to 2 p.m., there are aquarium feedings where visitors can see sharks and eels munching on big chunks of seafood. From the aquarium, guests travel into the Florida Everglades where they can see and hear some of the wildlife that call it home. An interactive display allows guests to push buttons that light up the animal as it produces the sound. “You can hear the Florida Panther roar or the buzz of the mosquito,” Crampton said. An exciting and visual exhibit is “Science on a Sphere,” which utilizes four high power laser projectors on a sphere that show real time weather patterns or one of 600 programs. From the sphere, guests move into the traveling exhibit area. Currently guests can explore “Savage Ancient Seas: Dinosaurs of the Deep,” which brings them face-to-face with the toothy monsters that called the seas of 70 million years ago home. Crampton said the additional space will also

allow the center to bring top level exhibits, like the “Titanic” exhibit arriving this fall. Favorites like the planetarium and hands-on puzzles can still be found at the center, but even this area will slowly undergo $250,000 worth of renovations. Much of the funding for the recent renovation and ongoing changes comes from private donors – about two-thirds, according to Crampton. The rest comes from visits to the center. “Since opening with the expansion, we have seen a 100 percent increase in visits,” he said. The South Florida Science Center and Aquarium is at 4801 Dreher Trail North, West Palm Beach. It is open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday to Friday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday and noon to 6 p.m. Sunday. Admission is $13 for adults, $10 for children ages 3 to 12, free for children 3 and younger, and $12 for seniors 62 and older. Visit www.sfsciencecenter.org for a daily schedule and list of special events.

Boynton Beach Arts District (BBAD) pushes boundaries beyond the canvas

By Jan Engoren

I

s it by luck or design that the acronym for the Boynton Beach Arts District is B-BAD? Rolando Chang Barrero, 51, a figurative abstract artist and one of the driving forces behind the arts district, may be the baddest of them all. A dynamic personality and a graduate of the Chicago Art Institute, in 2011 Barrero rented an old warehouse in the industrial district off I-95 and has slowly and steadily transformed the neighborhood. “If you build it, they will come,” Barrero quips. “They are coming, and I have slowly built it.” Built in a formerly blighted area, with rows of rundown warehouses, garages and littered by-ways, Barrero founded ActivistArtistA gallery and initiated the Bay Gates projects, an ever-changing outdoor exhibition of murals and paintings by local and national artists, who paint brightly-colored graffiti-style murals on the gates of each studio. “My intention is to provide the city and Palm Beach County a destination where locals and visitors can mingle, learn about developments in the arts, and enjoy participating in projects designed to enrich our lives,” Barrero said. Artists in the most recent Bay Gates project include Bulk, Ripe, Flicker, Venom, Veins, Serafima Sokolov, Paul Caprio, Eduardo Mendieta, Winkstyes, Nino Liguori and Craig McInnis. Lake Worth artist Tony Hernandez and Lantana-based Dianett Doyle are two of the most recent artists to join the community. Doyle, who has expertise in painting faux finish interiors, is branching out to abstract paintings. And Hernandez, whose medium is oil on canvas, was born in Cuba and influenced by the style of late Cuban artists René Partocarrero and Amelia Peláez del Casal. “Painting in an environment with other artists encourages you to do better,” said Hernandez. “I’ve been painting most of my life but never had the confidence to display my work,” he said. “Rolando has been wonderful in helping me get started at BBAD, and it was the most amazing

thing to see 300 people at the ‘Art Walk’ checking out my paintings.” On any given day, in addition to art and working studios, visitors can find open-mic nights, music and art festivals, a biannual “KeroWACKED” event, an outdoor art garage sale and barbecue, wine tastings, belly dancers, hoop dancing, fire spinners and exhibitions such as “Printed Matters,” an exhibition of images and short stories by West Palm Beach artist Cary Polkovitz and “A Stroke of Genius” with Spike TV’s inkmaster Lea Vendetta. “Our events emerge organically and come from the artists themselves,” Barrero said. The latest venture is a biodiversity project bringing a green ethos. With the help of urban gardeners Bill Milner and his wife Jayne King and other volunteers, Barrero is creating an

educational juice bar and cultivating plants such as mangoes, star fruit, avocado, collard greens, tomatoes and okra. Artist and wildlife scientist Diane Arrieta will complete a mural as part of her master’s thesis in biodiversity and endangered species at the University of Edinburgh in Scotland, studying the use of street art as a tool for biodiversity awareness. “Street art is one avenue to reach a younger generation and inform them of scientific concepts regarding biodiversity and conservation,” Arrieta said. “I offer a scientific model to my audience and encourage them to participate in making positive changes for a healthy planet.” While the district may still be a diamond in the rough, Barrero’s personal goals for the arts district

are to leave a legacy and create an international art foundation focused on emerging artists. “The urban art revitalization project keeps the district fresh and gives people new reasons to visit,” said Debby Coles-Dobay, public art administrator for the city. She went on to say, “BBAD has positively activated a formerly unsafe and unkempt industrial area of Boynton Beach. It is the first and only industrial arts district in Palm Beach County. The artists and their engaging activities have attracted not only the public to the district, but businesses as well.” Boynton Beach Arts District is at 422 W. Industrial Ave. For more information, visit www.activistartista. blogspot.com, www.facebook.com/ boyntonbeach.artdistrict or call Barrero at 786-521-1199.

Conebeam CAT Scan done to precisely measure how much bone is available. Frequently this highly accurate x-ray has determined that enough bone IS present for dental implants despite what patients have been told previously. If in fact enough bone is not present, options might include bone grafting or sophisticated prosthetics where an expert would be necessary to ensure proper fit and function of any prosthesis.

Local comic community united by love of art and storytelling

By Brittany Bokzam

ntering the room is comparable to being struck with a solid wall of sound and color. Inside, there is not a crowd, but a swarm of people. Their combined chatter is a unified buzz, broken up only by smatterings of laughter and the occasional excited screech. Upon slipping into the horde, it’s clear that this is no typical gathering of people. They are eclectic, dressed in bright costumes and wigs, carrying everything from fake axes to live birds. This is Florida Supercon, an annual convention for fans of comics, anime, video games and science fiction. The July 4-7 event took place at Miami Airport Convention Center. “There’s different things that bring different people there,” said Phil Beracha, owner of Phil’s Comic Shoppe. People go to conventions for numerous reasons: the celebrity guests; the variety of comics on sale; merchandise from assorted vendors, such as T-shirts and fan-made knick-knacks; and the opportunity to dress up as a beloved character. Mostly, Beracha said, it’s about getting the chance to hang out with people who like the things you like. Phil’s Comic Shoppe, at 6512 W. Atlantic Blvd. in Margate, has been in business since 1981. Beracha started reading comics in the ‘60s. He’s seen the fan community evolve and change over the course of decades. It’s much less of a cult now, he said. Fandom still feels like a private, sacred group, but it’s become far more widespread. “There’s even TV shows now,” he said, “it’s big now,” referring to comic book adaptations such as “Arrow” and “The Walking Dead.” Jonathan Rukes, 20, has worked at Docking Bay 94, in Coconut Creek, for seven years.

with fellow fans is at a local comic shop. Since new comics are released every week, readers tend to form a relationship with their supplying shop. The majority of customers at Docking Bay 94 are regulars, many of whom Rukes and Pabellon know by name. “We definitely develop a rapport with them,” Rukes said. “It’s almost like a small family.” The local fan community, which is maintained by the presence of thriving comi shops, comic Guests take part in Florida Supercon at He’s found ound that w is where the Miami Airport Convention Center.

But a few days, they can celebrate of comics – and it largely being comics are a year-round habit: their passion for whatever it is a boys’ club and ostracizing part of the joy of this narrative they love without holding back, everyone else – those days are medium is constantly having among others who share their long gone,” Rukes said. new material to absorb and enthusiasm. The rest of the year, Orlando Pabellon, 40, who finding a place to visit regularly though, the best way to interact frequents the store, said where there are other people

to talk to about these slowly unfolding stories. That’s why, despite doomsayers who claim otherwise, Richards is not concerned about the comics industry dying out any time soon. This business is not just about the product; it’s about the communal experiences associated with it. For shops like Tate’s, that means their job is not only to sell the book but also to contribute to that social experience. “You’re happy that you came into here and interacted with us,” Richards said. “It’s not about the book anymore, it’s about finding someone you can chat about that book with.” Past Present Future Comics has been at its West Palm Beach location for almost 21 years, and there are two other locations in Davie and Lauderhill. Like Phil’s, they’ve become such a staple of the community that they almost never advertise. “If you’re seeing people every week, you’re seeing them grow up,” said assistant manager Matthew Melnyk, 29. He’s worked at Past Present Future for two years but started helping out long before he became an official employee. Having been around for so long, he’s seen customers who first began visiting the store as children start families and bring their own kids to the shop. Caring about the product certainly helps build a relationship with those regular customers. “If you show enthusiasm and you know what you’re talking about, it really matters to people,” Melnyk said. Regardless of whether a fan finds their niche at conventions, comic shops or online chat rooms, reaching out to this vibrant community has the potential to enrich the comic book experience for both old readers and new. “You’ve got to love it, and if you do, that’s great,” said Richards.
