New Times Today!! Timb on Stage in Boynton Beach!

New Times Today!!

Timb Returns to the Stage at Boynton Beach Arts District

Boynton Beach Live
This Thursday May 22, 2014 | 7-11 PM
Boynton Beach Art District 
410 West Industrial Ave., 
Boynton Beach, Florida 786-521-1199

A musician of many guises at a venue of many enterprises, all it needs is a coat of many colors and the evening would be positively Biblical. And with onetime local staple Timb's taste for costumes and the theatrical, that's not out of the question either.

BOCA Magazine Says,"It's that wonderful time again!"

by John Thomasson!


What: BBAD Live!
Where: Boynton Beach Arts District, 410 W. Industrial Ave., Boynton Beach
When: 7 to 11 p.m.
Cost: Free
It’s that wonderful time of the month again, when the Boynton Beach Arts District opens its gallery studios well into the night, and live bands and open-mic performers join food and merch vendors for a night of funky and eclectic entertainment. This week’s BBAD Live event is a special one, because it includes a performance from headlining act Timb! (pictured), a veteran singer-songwriter from South Florida who is an endless fount of creativity. He’s sort of like our region’s answer to Robert Pollard, boasting 10 jam-packed solo albums, a number of EPs and tributes to other bands, and side projects ranging from the psychedelic band Los Torsos to the intriguingly named act The Chocolatey Shatners. Check out his website, where he gives away many of his releases for free.

Sun Sentinel News Today: Boynton Art Gallery Expanding makes the Palm Beach Politics Blog!

Boynton art gallery expanding

Director of the Boynton Beach Art District Rolando Chang Barrero is heading north to find more success.
His art gallery, ActivistArtistA Gallery, at 422 West Industrial Drive in Boynton Beach, is expanding to Lake Park, just north of Rivera Beach. Chang Barrero started his first gallery as part of BBAD – the Boynton Beach Arts District.
The second gallery, ActivistArtistA  II, will open in July at the Art on Park building in Lake Park.
Chang Barrero said he wanted to continue to grow the scene in Boynton, but he couldn’t find a good space. 
“I considered a number of different areas, “ he said. “I couldn’t find an appropriate space, needed store front and lots of traffic that I could afford in Boynton or anywhere else.”
But the Boynton Beach arts scene isn’t dead, he said. ActivistArtistA Gallery is closed for the summer, but will be open again during the fall for it’s monthly open-mic nights.
“We will still have a connection in Boynton Beach,” he said.

ACTIVISTARTISTA II will Open in July 2014

800 Park Ave.
Lake Park, Florida

ActivistArtistA Gallery/Studio, Inc. is literally on the move. Proprietor, Rolando Chang Barrero, has found a home for his second exhibition space.  

“ACTIVISTARISTA II” will be opening in July 2014 at the Art on Park building in the Town of Lake Park, Florida.  After months of scouting for a new location for the new gallery it became obvious that sharing a space with the Artists of Palm Beach  County was the most fruitful move. Both organizations agreed.

The Grand Opening of  “ACTIVISTARTIST II “ is expected to be one this summer’s biggest arts event in Palm Beach County—but of course!

“Park Avenue in Park Lake may still in it’s infancy, but that’s about to change!”

WeMerge Magazine: David German by Rolando Chang Barrero

WEMERGE Magazine
New Issue Released!
Now Available in Palm Beach County!

David German
By Rolando Chang Barrero

David German danced his way into ART Palm Beach.

David German paints, draws and dances-all at the same time. “ Sometimes I get carried away and just start dancing while I’m painting,” says German. It seems to be a great methodology for this talented artist who recently danced his way into Art Palm Beach 2014.

David German was a relatively an unknown Lake Worth artist only a few weeks ago, now his name and his graphite drawing, “ American Hostage” are both very well know. “America Hostage,” was selected by curator Paul Fisher to hang next to Russell Young’s “Marilyn Crying” and Andy Warhol’s “Rebel Without a Cause.”  When asked about his selection Mr. Fisher replied, “This work had some quirky narrative quality that transcended illustration. I didn't know what was going on but I knew something was…  I felt this is an artist that is going somewhere.”

“American Hostage,” rendered masterfully, on an eight by 10 inch page evokes a haunting truth about the trappings of hip-hop culture, a reality of the urban experience.  A truth, which appears personal and intimate to the artist, yet remains open for the viewer to interpret. The ‘blind eyes’ of the hostage takers are in remarkable contrast to David’s own eyes; which look down at the viewer.

David’s work seamlessly blends talent, mastery, emotion, and social commentary.  He is one of South Florida’s artist to keep an eye on.
