Art Synergy in collaboration with Art Palm Beach produces more than 65 exhibitions throughout the nine Palm Beach County Art Districts.

Art Synergy is a Palm Beach countywide movement to unify and promote the diverse culture of their vibrant arts community. Four years ago in early 2013, with the help (and at the urging of) nationally known artist / activist Frank Basta Jr., Craig McInnis and Rolando Barrero (local artists and activists themselves) created a think tank. Dedicated to finding solutions instead of dwelling on problems, the think tank was a forum for local artists of all kinds to come together and discuss ideas to help the local scene grow.

The first initiative they tackled was a program of events to coincide with Art Palm Beach; in hopes that the local scene could benefit from the popular art event much like Miami has benefitted from Art Basel. Soon it was named ART SYNERGY and everything took shape. ART SYNERGY’s future goals include events that will happen periodically throughout the year, the addition of more participating art districts, and initiatives that help unify the many diverse art entities, and talented artists that Palm Beach County has to offer. With the help of local CRAs, Public Arts Departments, the DDA in WPB and the Cultural Council of Palm Beach county (to name a few), ART SYNERGY has only one place to go… onward and upward.

The Dreamy Landscape Paintings of Switzerland-based Artist Katia de Carvalho

Switzerland-based painter Katia de Carvalho is an internationally recognized artist known for her dreamy landscapes and scenic images that give the viewer a colorful glimpse into the moments being captured through her work.

‘Carnival Parade’, oil on canvas, 20 x 28 inches.

The artist paints vivid urban and rural scenes of everyday life, from people dancing in the night, a distant farm in the hills, to ladies doing laundry by the shore.

‘End of Carnival Ball’, oil on canvas, 21 x 31 inches.

Each painting shares a little slice of day-to-day life with an innocent style reminiscent of the Naive art genre, which is what makes the work interesting, having a unique expression of perspective and color.

‘Venice’, oil on canvas.

Much of Katia’s early works were dedicated to Venice, portraying the waterways and the facades of the buildings hanging like sheets between the air and the water. Her timeless vision of everyday life bares the child-like ruminations of her heart and soul as with most self-taught artists who strive to relate – by means of brush, paint and canvas – the fairy tale figments of their fertile imaginations.

‘The Three Dancers’, oil on canvas, 26 x 39 inches.

Genuine naive artists are hard to come by; however, one runs across the real thing occasionally, and Katia de Carvalho is one of them. There is such a disarming candor in the simplicity of approach, and such a guileless directness in feeling, that one cannot help being enchanted by these paintings.

‘Nativity’, oil on canvas, 24 x 32 inches.
