Vicki Siegel Exhibits Acrylic and Mixed Media Paintings at Multiple Venues

With work in multiple venues, including a SOLO show, artist Vicki Siegel has been pouring her creative energy into new work and organizing a SOLO exhibit with a range of work from the last ten years.  Her paintings include images of both collective and personal memories. The Rickie Report is pleased to share the details of her exhibits and hopes you will stop by to view some of her wonderful, dreamlike creations.

 

 

 

VICKI SIEGEL EXHIBITS AT MULTIPLE VENUES 

 

 

 

Vicki Siegel’s paintings are informed by memory, both personal and collective. “Memories are imperfect representations of the past that are altered, fragmented, reconstructed and reinterpreted over time” says Siegel. “In my narrations details are found in layers often revealing something forgotten or missing from actual experiences or by the collective memories we share”.

 

"Gioia"

“Gioia” by Vicki Siegel (Acrylic and Image Transfer)

 

 

 

 

In her first SOLO show, “Journeys”, artist Vicki Siegel takes the viewer on an artistic journey from the outside world to a world that exists in the imagination.

Call 561-558-2100.  “Journeys” runs January 21, 2014- March 2, 2014. 

 

 

 

With over twenty five paintings on display, from landscapes to figurative, these colorful works of art reflect the artist’s focus on both the spiritual and natural worlds. Many have a dreamlike calming atmosphere. Expressive use of acrylic paint with overlays of pencil, charcoal, and oil stick drawing, along with image transfers of photographs will delight the viewer.

 

A portion of the sales will benefit The Weisman Delray Community Center. It is part of the Ruth Rales Jewish Family Service. The Center is located at 7091 W. Atlantic Ave. in Delray Beach. Call 561-558-2100 for more information.

"Springtime Begins"

“Springtime Begins”

 

 

Stanley received a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree from Cooper Union. While pursuing his career as a Creative/Art Director in the New York Advertising Industry, he continued to explore his passion for painting.  In New York, Stanley’s SOLO shows include: The Donald Gallery (Dobbs Ferry, NY) and Heritage Frame  (Tarrytown, NY). Stanley was also a member of the Faculty at Parsons School of Design.

Stanley shares, “I have always felt most spiritual when I am physically and emotionally enveloped by a landscape. The mystical state of mind that these inspiring locales transport me to, is what I strive to reflect in my painting”.

“For me, rather than merely documenting topography, painting is more about expressing the spiritual journey that the world of nature transports me to”, he says.

 

TRR:    Do you prefer oil or acrylic? 

SD:

I paint in Acrylics because I actually like the quick drying time, the versatility of the mediums and the quick clean up time which fits into my life.

 

TRR:  What did you teach at Parsons? 

SD:

I developed and taught a course for design students called:”Art Direction-Expanding Your Options” . The course explored different career paths that Design/Art  students could take.

 

"Spring Awakening"

“Spring Awakening”

 

TRR:   Were you artistic as a child? 

SD:

My elementary school teacher summoned my mother to the classroom to explain to her that she felt that I was very talented in Art. She offered to loan me her oil paints over the summer so that I could continue painting. My mother explained to her that she could afford to purchase a set of oil paints for me. Not only did my mother buy the paints, but she researched and found courses for me to take on Saturdays at The Brooklyn Museum Art School and Brooklyn College, which nurtured my life long passion for painting.

 

From an early age, I was always painting. After High School, I was fortunate to get accepted to The Cooper Union Art School. After Cooper, I pursued a long, successful career as an Advertising Creative/Art Director but during that time – I continued to paint. As my advertising career tapered off-my painting endeavors expanded.

"Across The Pond"

“Across The Pond”

In Florida, Stanley’s paintings have been exhibited at The Boca Museum of Art, The Coral Springs Center for the Arts, Loxahatchee National Wildlife Center, Lighthouse ArtCenter, The Armory Art Center and the Rosen Museum Gallery.  He was also featured in Travel Host Magazine.   He is a Participating Signature Member of the Boca Museum Artists’ Guild and a Founding Member of the Florida Scape Artists. Stanley’s work is represented in both Public and Private Collections.
