    CUTV News Radio spotlights Laurie Marks of Life Coach Gallery

    in Self Help

    Lighthouse Point, FL – We weren’t put here to live a so-so life. We all have the ability to get what we want. It doesn’t have to remain a dream. 

    “You are the designer of your life and you create a gallery of moments,” says Laurie Marks, founder of Life Coach Gallery. “That’s what Life Coach Gallery is all about. It’s about the moments where you shine, where you reach your highest potential, the moments where you realize the things that you thought were impossible and your dreams become reality."

    Life throws a lot at us: stress, fear, pain, sorrow. Sometimes it’s hard to communicate with the people around us. It’s natural to seek the comfort of friends and family, but they are often too emotionally attached to an outcome. As a life coach, Laurie can be objective while having our best interests at heart.

    “Everyone experiences change differently. Sometimes we don’t have the person we need to hear our side of the story,” says Laurie. “That’s where I come in. I’m on your side. Drawing on my personal experiences I’m able to determine how people can grow from their challenges and how they can fortify themselves and strengthen themselves."

    Laurie says people need to know there’s more to life. Life coaching is about keeping us focused on the other side of the walls we’ve built around us, walls that have become so thick to keep the bad out, they keep out the good as well.

    “I like seeing people gain freedom from their fears, from their woes, from their hurts, from their pain. It begins with a conversation,” says Laurie. “I will bring to light your value.”

    in Visual Arts

    Lavon N. Pettis owner of Global Resources ID, speaks about maintaining close collaborations within the "Collectors Circle". Her capital venture took her to the outskirts of the Miami Art Basel in 2015, to KROMA Art Space in Coconut Grove, and to the Black Archives Historic Lyric Theater Cultural Arts Complex collaborating with the Urban Art Collective  part of a Miami Art Week.The festival, dubbed Art Miami, is an outgrowth of Art Basel, a premier annual art exhibition that takes place in the Miami Beach Convention Center.

    The Phantom Gallery collaborated with network artists and galleries. Over 200 works representing 24 artists, the art was exhibited from November 22, through January 10th, 2016.  

    Today’s conversation will focus on how important it is to maintain close collaboration with our partners, who share the common aspiration of creating a global platform for the exchange of ideas that drive the art world forward. Lavon N. Pettis of Global Resources Innovative Development, a project management consultant that finds solutions, strategies, and support in the development of art initiatives.

    Partnerships are essential for the support of cultural events. The longevity of our relationships are indicative of how focused and successful Phantom Gallery Chicago Network is in supporting our partners in achieving their goals.

    Project logistics held surprises as well. One of the unexpected challenges cited by organizers was the degree to which coordinating projects across multiple partners created enormous complexities. 

    What does it mean to exhibit in Temporary Installation Spaces? Unanticipated Impacts? How important is brand association and amplification?

    The Indy Cafe; Jonathan Levine , Art and Jonathan Levine Gallery , NYC!

    in Art

    As a youth in the 1980s, LeVine recognized the appeal of countercultural aesthetics including punk flyers, comics, graffiti and tattoos. Beginning in 1994, LeVine became an independent curator, organizing exhibitions at punk and alternative rock venues in the NY/NJ area such as: CBGB, Webster Hall, Max Fish, and Maxwell's. By promoting these visual art forms through group shows in venues that were home to their musical counterparts, LeVine gave a home to this nascent art movement, early on.

    In February 2001, LeVine opened his own gallery Tin Man Alley in New Hope, Pennsylvania. The gallery relocated to Philadelphia in late 2002. In January 2005, LeVine renamed and moved his gallery to the epicenter of the contemporary art world, Manhattan's Chelsea district.

    Jonathan Levine Gallery is committed to new and cutting edge art. Our roots go back to 1995, when Jonathan's life-long participation in punk and underground music grew into a curatorial experiment with the visual culture that surrounded him. We moved to Chelsea in 2005, with an eye towards honoring and connecting with the history and context of Post War art. In 2014, the gallery opened a second space on the ground floor of 557 West 23rd Street. We contribute to the dialogue by challenging the conventions of the canon — exploring the terrain of the high/low and everything in between. Our success in nurturing the careers of Shepard Fairey, Invader, Olek and others motivates us to continue being the voice for this cultural shift. The catalogues we publish, prints we distribute, and museum shows we help to produce reflect our dedication to our artists and community. At the same time, we aim to create an accessible and engaging gallery space.  http://jonathanlevinegallery.com
