Before Caryl Pomales Offers 3 Day Workshop At New Studio For Visual Arts, She Reminds Us Why Artists Should Never Stop Taking Classes!

Caryl Pomales understands that creativity is not a quantifiable skill that can ever be officially mastered. It is a skill and a muscle that you must exercise to maintain, sharpen, and keep limber. Living a creative life is a marathon of continually cultivating curiosity and artistry. A runner does not quit stretching and training after completing a marathon; nor should the painter ever quit expanding his or her skill set. The Rickie Report shares her exciting announcement: Caryl will host a 3 Day workshop in October, PAWS- “Painting Animals with Spirit” at the New Studio For Visual Arts in Tequesta!  We give you all of the details, including a discount, how to receive her blog, and some sneak peeks!

“Lilac Breasted Roller” by Caryl Pomales

 

 

Caryl tells The Rickie Report,  “There is much to gain from being a perpetual student of the arts, continually participating in studies, reading, practicing, and taking classes. Amateurs and professional artists alike should continue their painting pursuits in a classroom, and here are just a few reasons why”.

 

  • Working on your craft. While you may have works displayed in galleries, sold dozens of paintings, or taught your own course, artistry is your athletic pursuit. You’ve completed your “marathon,” and it’s time to stretch and train for your next race!

 

  • Opening your mind to a different perspective and technique you may not have experienced, thought about, or mastered. There is always room to learn and adopt new styles, adding to your artistic toolbox. This will, without a doubt, help you create adventurous and dynamic work.

 

 

  • Renewed attentiveness. Sometimes, after being away from a class for a while, the artist can start to lose some of their creative curiosity. A learning environment constantly pushes the artist to grow, experiment, try new things, and look at the world a new way. Returning to a course is a great way to revive that crucial skill, reopening the eyes, heart, and mind.

 

 

  • Kindness among fellow artists. A workshop or class is an incredible opportunity to meet other painters at all stages in their lives and careers. Having a solid network of fellow artists is incredibly fulfilling, and one of the best places to meet this community is at a workshop!

 

 

  • Striving to further cultivate your artistry by never settling into complacency. Those who pursue the constant betterment of their craft have the most satisfying and inspiring careers.

 

 

  • Heal, relax, sooth, and relieve stress. Classes are, in addition to being productive, wonderfully enjoyable! They are a great place to set an artistic “reset” button and enjoy a creative and supportive learning environment.

 

 

  • Ownership of your talent and skill. Classes remind you both what you know and are remarkably skilled at as well as you can improve upon, and give you the opportunity to work on the latter.

 

 

  • Painting, and doing what you ultimately love, amongst others who feel the same way!

 

 

“Juicey Fruit” by Caryl Pomales

 

 

What does this spell?   W-O-R-K-S-H-O-P!  

Caryl says, “Let’s continue our pursuit of creative curiosity and commit to being perpetual students together”.

 

Just one example of perpetually studying Caryl’s art- One of her paintings-in-progress!

 

 

 

Caryl Pomales has studied with many accomplished artists including, Alessandra Gieffers, Julia Kelly, Peggy Kirkwood, Nancy Medina, Dennis Perrin, Dreama Toll Perry, & Mary Bentz-Gilkerson.  Recent recognitions include an award for her impressionistic style, bold brush stroke and vivid color painting, “Picasso-Le Chat” from the 39th Annual Members’ Show at the Lighthouse ArtCenter/Gallery. Her paintings were exhibited at the Members 6th Art of Association collaborative-juried exhibit featuring artists from sixteen Art Associations located throughout Palm Beach and Martin Counties in Florida and one of 27 artists featured in “Size Matters”, at The Lighthouse ArtCenter in Tequesta, FL.  In addition, she was honored to be invited as a SOLO artist to exhibit at the Sewall’s Point Town Hall in Sewall’s Point/Stuart, FL.  Caryl is an active member of Artists of Florida-LLC, North County Art Association, Benefactor and Artists’ Guild Member of the Lighthouse Art Center, The Arts Council of Martin County FL, Elliott Museum/ Stuart, FL, The Lake Worth Art League, Wellington Art Society, Friends of Jonathan Dickinson State Park and The Audubon Society, Martin County FL Chapter.

Yury Lobo Exhibits New Work At Art On Park Gallery, Artists Of Palm Beach County Offer Free Classes, Workshops, Poetry Events

Art on Park Gallery, home of  Artists of Palm Beach County, presents new artworks by Yury Lobo.  He was raised in a small rural town in Russia, where the signs “No Trespassing” hung on every door. By pure chance, at the age of 12, Yury and his mother attended the first American Exhibition in Moscow.  He was particularly struck by the painting, “Cathedral” by American abstract expressionist, Jackson Pollock. That day changed the trajectory of his life forever! Pushing boundaries, Yury found freedom in the United States, being fully opened to new heights of artistic expression. The Rickie Report shares details of his newest exhibit at Art on Park Gallery in Lake Park.  Meet the artist on Friday, August 24th at a free, opening reception.  We also list classes, free workshops and other events available at Art On Park Gallery.

“Exhausted” by Yury Lobo

 

 

Since his early childhood, Yury Slobodenuk has been fascinated with the world of wild colors and the art of collage. However, he never considered becoming a professional artist partly due to the lack of encouragement from his parents and partly due to the general disapproval of this “degenerate art” by the Soviet authorities. What stands out in his memory is a visit to the first American National Exhibition with his mother in July, 1959, featuring among others, Jackson Pollock’s “Cathedral”. Yury was shocked and amazed at the same time. He tells The Rickie Report, “Most visitors considered it a joke..in bad taste. But the impact on my subconscious at the age of 12 was life changing. That is why my interests centered later on with more avant-garde artists. I appreciate Van Gogh, Chagall, Kandinsky, Malevich, Picasso, Matisse, Miro, Brague, Warhol, Rothko, Klimt, Shiele, Modigliani and of course, Pollock.”

 

“Venus of Auschwitz” by Yury Lobo

 

Yury created a few paintings for close friends and family, trusting his inner instincts. Back then, in the USSR he didn’t have the courage to paint and share his passion for abstract expressionism and collage publicly. Keeping his painting mostly to himself, he pursued a career that was more economically sound. He received a Masters degree in German and English, studied the history of art and worked as a licensed multilingual guide at the majors art museums in the former USSR. He became a journalist, interpreter, German teacher, TV script writer.

 

“Beatles Undivided” by Yury Lobo

 

 

 

Having fled the USSR in 1991 for political reasons, Yury first established himself in Miami and pursued his journalism career, working for several Russian-American newspapers. Later, he started one of his own, but sold it in 2007 and moved to West Palm Beach, where he continues his career as a German teacher and now a contemporary artist. The freedom of expression in America has motivated and inspired Yury to fulfill the dream of his youth – sharing his creative side publicly. His artistic name, “Lobo” is a shortened form of his long Ukrainian last name, “Slobodenyuk”, which translates to ” a free man”. “Lobo” means “wolf”, the symbol of the tireless will, yearning for freedom.

 

 

Yury tells The Rickie Report, ” My fellow countryman, Kasimir Malevich once said, ‘Comrades, arise, free yourselves from the tyranny of objects!’ In this sense, I, like him, consider myself an abstract artist and a revolutionary. My battle cry is ‘Stop copying the world! Create a new one!’ Whoever is afraid of bright colors is afraid of life, which I am not”. Furthermore, Yuri confesses, ” I know it sounds nuts, but I consider myself a kind of modern reincarnation of the late Jackson Pollock who, in his own words was a “cowboy” painter. Like him, I’m painting “from the hip”, creating huge abstract compositions within minutes, using brusque wild strokes of bold colors. Some of my colleagues (part joking, part serious) are dubbing me “Jack The Whipper” for whipping that canvas with paint instead of dripping it as Jack The Dripper (Jackson Pollock) did”.

“Night in Lisbon” by Yury Lobo

 

 

 

Yury goes on to explain, “In the art of collage, I represent a completely different point of view. My slightly distorted collages are pretty close to reality and filled with hidden ironies and sometimes tragic messages. Being a history buff, I can’t help but act as the mocking bird, laughing at the human inability to learn from history…which of course sees that such ignorance is doomed to repeat itself. Every collage is a “time capsule” with a message to future generations. A true artist is about the inner energy which he or she tunnels to the public through the art. If there is no reaction at the receiving end, then the energy was either poor or lost in artistic translation”.

“Self Portrait”  Oil on canvas by Buu Truong.  Trying a looser and less representational style, I chose Modigliani as my inspiration for this self-portrait. 

 

Buu Truong, as a young child, came with her family to America from Vietnam and settled in Orlando where she grew up. She graduated from the University of Florida with a degree in Computer Engineering and worked as a computer programmer and manager for many years.  After a time, she became unhappy in her job and felt something important was missing in her life. She began painting to relieve stress and found her passion. She left her sixteen year old career in order to pursue a degree in the visual arts!

 


“Onward and Upward” by Buu Truong. Mixed media including pen and watercolor pencil.  

 

The title of this piece, “Onward and Upward”, refers to the idea that the stairs are a means to move forward. Buu says, “For this piece, I had two main goals – apply the design element of space and experiment with a new medium, watercolor pencils. The artwork was created using mixed media – pen and watercolor pencils. The design element of space is applied using one-point perspective across multiple planes. The steps, which are parallel to the ground plane, converge towards a single vanishing point on the horizon line. However, the rails, which are parallel to the incline of the stairs, converge towards another vanishing point above the original horizon line”.

 

“Trees for Farmlands” by Buu Truong.  Woodcut print on paper with gouache

 

Buu explains, “This piece is about cause and effect of deforestation. One of the main causes for destroying forests is clearing the land for farmlands. The campfire represents the manmade destruction.  This is one out of an edition of 10 woodcut prints”.  

 

 

 

 

Buu is presently enrolled at Florida Atlantic University working toward a Bachelor of Fine Arts with a concentration in painting. Buu is obsessed with increasing her technical skills and accuracy when it comes to exploring form, texture, color and light. Her work has been exhibited at the South Side Cultural Arts Center in Fort Lauderdale, Southwest Florida International Airport in Fort Myers, Alliance for the Arts in Fort Myers and the Coral Springs Museum of Art. She has been awarded a Wellington Art Society Scholarship and a Rothenberger Scholarship.

 

 

“Path To Art” by Buu Trong.  Gouache on Paper

Buu shares, “There are many parallels between running and art-making. Through the training and discipline required to run, I realized that anything can be learned. From this point, my world grew and eventually led me on my art path”.  She tells The Rickie Report, “This exhibit explores my journey in becoming an artist, from before I even knew I wanted to be an artist, until now”.

 

The Wellington Art Society is a non-profit charitable organization beginning its 37th year. It is open to artists of all mediums and patrons of the arts, allowing both local and regional artists to display their art work in local galleries, interact with other artists and serve the community through their art.
