Invest for Success
Speaker: Monica Tranter-Sinni (Gallery Owner)
Join Mona Tranter of the Tranter-Sinni Gallery in an eye opening, educational and very entertaining lecture. Mona Tranter, is a gallerist, art consultant, advisor, and independent appraiser specializing in research, appraisal, and all business and market aspects of original artist works, artist manuscript materials, art-related documentation, and art reference books. She has been selling art since 2000 and has been consulting and appraising for artists, galleries, businesses, organizations and private collectors since 2009. Art in its many mediums can be seen in every building across the world. Artists from every country are working daily to bring to light their future masterpieces. The painting you buy to match your sofa may increase in value, or it may be as salable as your kid's spaghetti art project. As with any investment, you need to do your research and get to know the artist and trend of the art market. The art market is fickle with no guarantees of profitability, but with a little arts education and a good eye you can fill any space with pieces that may prove very worthy investments down the line. Consider this for choosing fine art and identifying the Michelangelo from the macaroni.

Art is decor
Speaker: Simone Monney (artist)
She calls her style “lyrical abstraction”. Her way of painting is very spontaneous and inspired by the rhyme of music. Hans Zimmer, the film-music compositor, is mainly her companion in this first approach on the canvas. She mixes Indian Ink with Japanese rice paper collages to bring depth and transparency into the painting. At the end acrylic paint will give the final touch. In her paintings nothing is planned in advance, only the colors which she chooses very carefully as the aesthetically point of view is important in all her creations. Being creative means also, thinking outside of the box ... go beyond borders of our basic thinking. Be open-minded, explore new horizons without limits. She worked for 15 years in a famous fragrance company in Geneva, where analyzing trends was a daily task. Being a self-taught artist, she has no limits to explore new techniques and ways of going further in her creations. She will explore the idea of art and design and help create the journey between the artist and putting art in every room and on walls, furniture, textiles and even what you are wearing. Art is in high fashion and why not customize a luxury environment in a unique way.

Night time in the Everglades
Speaker: Matt Stock
Join Matt Stock as he walks people through areas seldom walked, literally and metaphorically deep into the heart of the Everglades. His area of expertise is creating hyper-realistic nighttime photographs with a technique referred to as painting with light. With this technique both himself and his team meticulously illuminate a scene on location using light sources ranging from the Milky Way and full moon to specialized continuous and strobe-based lighting tools through the course of many hours and dozens of individual exposures. He then digitally combines elements of each of these exposures into a single luminous composition in post-production using Adobe Photoshop. Everything seen in my photographs was captured in real time and on location. Some photographs can only happen once a year, some even less frequently.

Abandoned Vehicles of the Everglades takes these same painting with light techniques deep into the heart of the Everglades. Through a decade of research, this series of photographs made for fine art exhibition explores the interaction between man and nature as seen through nighttime environmental portraits of vehicles long abandoned in the Everglades ecosystem. To date thirty-one vehicles have been photographed with plans to photograph another thirty or more vehicles and turn the completed body of work into a fine art exhibition.
