Learn about Paul’s creative process in the development of his unique artwork and the origins of his very unique style.  The definition of realism takes on a new meaning when the paintings are shaped in perspective because a ‘realistic’ painting in a square or rectangle relies on the acceptance by the viewer that they are looking at an illusion presented to them in an arbitrarily imposed shape. But when a painting is shaped to look like the object represented when seen in perspective, such as a painting of a door – which actually opens and closes like a real door – then the illusion of reality is intensified. Perhaps it would be more accurate to describe this increased realism as ‘supra-realism’.

He presently is exhibiting with De Twee Pauwen, The Hague, The Netherlands and Bel-Air Fine Art, Miami.  Paul has shown in more than 200 Group Exhibitions, including: The 57th ‘Bienale di Venezia’, Italy, 2017 – Bel-Air Fine Art, Paris, France Maddox Gallery, London, Galerie Blondel, Paris, France, Michelle Rosenfeld Gallery, New York City, Scott Richards Contemporary Art, San Francisco, National Centre for Contemporary Art, Vladikavkaz, Russia.  Paul has participated in 36 Solo Exhibitions since 1987 and Over 61 International Art Fairs since 1985. Rotterdam Contemporary, The Netherlands,, Art Karlsruhe, Germany (solo), Moniker, London, Art.Fair Cologne, Germany (Solo shows 2014 – 2015), SCOPE, Basel, Switzerland (Solo show 2013).  https://www.saatchiart.com/PaulC

“Abstract Orange Poppies” by Marilyn Bobbin Salisbury

 

 

 

Bobbin, originally from New York, has an Associates Degree in Art from Nassau Community College and also studied art at Mallory University.  She has attended classes and workshops in New York and Florida.  She has painted all her life, first in oil and now in watercolor and acrylics after her three year old ruined a number of oil paintings.  She loves painting things in nature: flowers, ocean and trees and never goes anywhere without her paints, brushes and lots of paper!  She enjoys realistic painting but continues to evolve into her own style, trying new products and techniques to produce colorful abstract works.     

 

 

“Golden Note” by Marilyn Bobbin Salisbury

 

 

 

 

Bobbin is a Signature Member of the Palm Beach Watercolor Society and the Wellington Art Society.  She participates in all of their exhibits as well as others, including on line competitions. Bobbin is a member of the ” Sketchbook Project” of the Brooklyn Art Museum.  One of her sketchbooks led to her creation of “Silly Selma”, a children’s picture book series.  She is presently finishing the illustrations and hopes to publish them soon.   She tells The Rickie Report, “I frequently use watercolor and am guided by the spontaneity of creating beautiful new color mixes and shapes on the wet paper”.

Light Painting Vlog by Jason Page

 

 

 

Jason’s father was an avid photographer, who moved his family to Palm Beach when Jason was very young.  After high school he went on to study film production in college and focused his cinematography on his love of surfing.  He produced, shot and edited four feature length award winning films.  Jason tells The Rickie Report, “Light painting is its own art form, just as drawing is an art form or painting is an art form.  Calling light painting a ‘photographic technique’ would be the same thing as calling painting a canvas technique”.

 

 

Light Painting by Jason Page

 

 

 

Jason discovered light painting by accident when shooting a full moon and he bumped his camera.  When he checked the image and saw the streak that the moon left across the sky it was his epiphany and from that moment on he was a light painter!  He is widely recognized as a leader in the light painting movement and has created ground breaking images.  He uses both digital and film but prefers shooting film whenever he can.  He uses his camera as an instrument for recording light and all of his paintings are created in real time and captured on the camera in one single photographic frame.  Jason creates his images in total darkness and paints with light just as a traditional  painter would with oils or acrylics.

 

Light Painting with Janelle Monae by Jason Page

 

 

Jason Pages’s paintings have been exhibited in many cities in Europe and India as well as the United States and throughout Florida.  Light painting is created in real time, captured to the camera in one single photographic frame using the Light Painting Brushes.

PLEIN FUN FEST WEEKEND SCHEDULE:

Friday: Paint-out & Critique

On Friday, Feb 1, 2019 – There will be a Paint-out with Critique for those Artists who want to join in the FUN but not interested in competition. There is a charge of $20 which includes hospitality suite. Artists may bring 1-2 guests at $10/per person. Because of the popularity of PAPB’s paint-out with critique that is run by Manny Jomok we decided to make it part of Plein Fun Fest. Registered Artists will meet at Old School Square at 9 AM and decide where to paint. Critique leaders will be available to offer assistance to those who are new to plein air. This Plein Air Paint-out allows artists the opportunity to enjoy not only painting but sharing their creativity with the public. To the viewers, this art form can be very exciting because it invites them into the creative process: the sight, sound, and even smell of the artists´ world. One of the best parts of plein air painting is the congeniality of artists. Paintings must be back by 12 noon to be part of the Silent Auction.

At 12 PM all will meet again at Old School Square Field House for an Artist Hospitality Suite. From there we will break into groups of no more than 10 for a shared art critique. And, as last year there will be a fabulous luncheon buffet for participating artists. After critique, artists will have time to tweek paintings if they wish, and frame them for hanging in the Silent Auction, but they must be completed and framed by 3-3:30. Framing is to take place on tables after table cloths are removed.

Paintings from this day may be part of the Silent Auction that concludes at the Saturday reception in the Ocean Breeze room. They are not part of the judging.

Sunday Paint the Beach for FUN

We had a great time last year painting the beach, so we are planning to do so again. Like before we will at the pavilion at the end of Atlantic Ave. There will be coffee and donuts. The city of Delray Beach does not require a permit for our paint-out that could have upwards of 50 plus plein air painters but asks us not to congregate in one place. Imagine the visual of all the plein air painters stretched out along the beach. NIrvana. This is just a painting for the shear joy of it as Delray Beach prohibits selling of anything at the beach.

About the PBCQG:

Do you like to work on projectAprils in your own home? We have directions available for our Habitat for Humanity of Palm Beach County Welcome Home quilts, and for Project Linus quilts. We also have directions posted for a great name badge holder you can make for your name tag, the PBCQG logo patch, and pin. Or, you can sew interesting items for the Boutique committee as they dream up new items to offer in the Boutique at our Guild meetings or at our shows.

Do you prefer to work in a group? We gather after meetings several times a year for community outreach “sew-ins” where you can cut, press, sort, sew, bind, or quilt projects for veterans, Habitat for Humanity partner families, and other Palm Beach County community services. Additionally, many members gather in small groups around town to work together on community projects. See the list in each month’s newsletter.

Do you like to help children learn about quilt-making? We love helping children (and their parents) learn about and appreciate quilt-making. Our largest project is our Kids’ Corner throughout the seventeen days of the South Florida Fair each year. We have offered different activities over the last 30 years, but all of them involve a way for children – even the young ones – to make something related to quilt-making. Currently, the children use crayons to draw designs on light-colored fabric that we heat-set and make into small Project Linus quilts – often right there at the Fair. Children and parents often stop by later the same day to see the quilt that their block is in. These quilts are distributed to community-based organizations throughout Palm Beach County – many are carried on fire trucks and used to comfort children in crisis situations. The Fair lasts for seventeen days each January and we always need members (and their friends and family) to help with Kid’s Corner and with other tasks such as demonstrating hand-quilting, machine-quilting, and offering opportunities to win the special theme quilt available that year. Get free admission the day you work!

Sign up to work a shift of your choosing at any Fall Guild meeting or by contacting Nancy Ialacci or Donna Jesse. We especially need volunteers to work the evening shifts – that way, you can enjoy the Fair during the less-crowded daytime, have dinner, and then work the booth from 6-10 pm

Another way we help children learn about quilt-making is to conduct special programs, such as the quilt-making class at the Fair’s summer camp in Yesteryear Village. Children, 8-12 learn what life was like in “the old days” and they learn basic sewing and quilting skills.

Do you like to learn new skills? Most Guild meetings include a program, which teaches a quilt-making skill or concept. During the year, we have several workshops with talented local, regional, and national instructors on tradition, modern, and art quilt-making. See the newsletter for the latest information on programs and workshops.

Do you enjoy sharing your quilt-making knowledge with others? Let the Guild vice president or workshop chair know that you are interested in teaching a short program or a long workshop.

Would you like working with our wonderful library of quilt-making books and videos? You can help the library committee catalog new acquisitions, lend and receive the books and videos, or help members find ones related to their quilt-making interests.

Would you enjoy helping with our annual challenge, or the construction of our annual Fair and “opportunity” quilts? Contact the committee chairs and let them know.

How about assembling membership packets? Preparing Birthday Basket fat-quarters? Holding quilts up for display during Show and Tell? Just contact the committee chair – they would love, love, love your help!

And, there is always a lot to do before each meeting. If you find joining a new group a bit awkward, pitching in and working along side someone is an easy way to break the ice. Sign up to be the “Gate Greeter,” from 9:15 – 10 am, and provide wagons for members and guests to use for their heavy items. This way, you get to meet everyone coming into the meeting. Just sign up on the clip-board circulated during each meeting. Join us in the Bink Museum at 8:30 am any meeting day and help set up the tables and chairs and be part of the camaraderie that forms as we work together. Join Us!
