WELLINGTON   ART   SOCIETY

Presents

A   SOLO   EXHIBITION

by

BUU    TRUONG

 

PUBLIC    RECEPTION:

Friday, August 3, 2018 

6:30 – 8:00 pm

Whole Foods Market Cafe

2635 SR7 Wellington, FL

561.904.4000

$5. Covers Music, Wine, Food and Donation to WAS Scholarship Fund

Exhibit Is Available Now through September, 2018

 

“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.

“Abundant Life Within” by Maria Lentine

 

 

In addition to batik and painting, Maria also creates beautiful jewelry.  She is largely self taught but has studied and learned from very gifted artists of design and watercolor. Through her art she is able to offer different parts of her personality.  Her serious adult side is shown through her watercolors and her playful child side shows in her soft batik paintings.  She feels working in acrylics brings out her philosophical side which shows in her black and white series.  

 

“Snowbirds” by Maria Lentine

 

Maria worked and traveled with Club Med for five years teaching English and found that no matter what country she was visiting, the sunrises and sunsets and the tranquility of the tropical landscape were a constant and gave her peace.  Since then she has worked with designers and clients creating hand painted fabrics, murals, commissioned paintings and directing art galleries.

 

“Awake At Dawn and Give Thanks for another day of  loving” by Maria Lentine

 

After a severe accident, Maria’s painting arm was crushed and reconstructed.  She found that painting and jewelry making served as a healing method in regaining her mobility and motor skills.  She also discovered yoga was able to aid in her rehab and it became a transformative experience.

“Yoga and art are who I am and my intention is to continue sharing this with others.”

 

“Opening to the fruits of life” by Maria Lentine

“North Dakota Mustangs at Teddy Roosevelt Park” by Laurie Snow Hein

 

 

Light refreshments will be served and there will be drawings for special door prizes. The public is invited for this unique exhibit.

Artwork by Laurie Snow Hein

Laurie tells The Rickie Report, “Half of all proceeds of my horse paintings will go to a Wild Horse Preserve of mine or purchaser’s choice. Purchaser will write out the check themselves on the spot. The donation is tax deductible so I will send in the check and the buyer gets a receipt. A win for us and a win for the beautiful horses I love. This month I submitted three of my horse paintings to the Wellington Community Center gallery for the Winter Equestrian Art Show. From now until April they will be displayed.  My collection of wild horse paintings is my way of helping preserve these truly amazing animals in their natural, protected environments”.

 

 

 

Laurie shares, “Horses are very close to my heart and I wanted to take the time out to explain why.  Like many children, I loved horses as a young girl. Television shows like Roy Rogers, The Lone Ranger and Westerns were always my favorite…because of the horses, of course. From my first pony, a gift from my grandpa at age eight, to my beloved “Spice” (a haflinger who is still my companion on frequent rides), I have seldom been without a horse”.

Artwork by Laurie Snow Hein

 

 

In 2010, Laurie spent a week in North Dakota with her daughter to visit the state parks and to also visit a horse sanctuary. “I wanted to see these magnificent animals for myself; to observe their natural beauty and behavior, unspoiled by the intrusion and control of man. My lifelong love affair with horses grew to be a serious, focused interest in the preservation and protection of the remaining wild herds in our country. Fascinated by these wild horse herds, I began capturing their magnificent, unspoiled beauty and behavior in a series of paintings. My first oil, a group of horses in full gallop, sold quickly.  Pryor Mountain and other non-profit wild horse reservations keep complete records of the herds via annual roundups. The sanctuaries always need funds to provide health care and to assure genetic integrity, especially of the mustang herd at Pryor Mountain”. 

 

Artwork by Laurie Snow Hein

 

 

Laurie teaches art classes, conducts workshops and displays her art in top festivals throughout the country. She is listed in “Who’s Who in American Art”, “Who’s Who in America” and “Who’s Who Of American Women”. She has painted executive portraits for Furman College, Palm Beach Atlantic College and St. Vincent Hospital. Avon Company commissioned her to paint the Mothers Day plate in 2009 which sold out. Her newest collection “Freedom’s Spirit” was started to raise awareness of the plight of the wild mustangs of America.

 

 

 

Laurie is best know for her Florida Tropical Landscapes. In addition to teaching art classes and conducting workshops, she is in demand at the top art festivals in the nation. Her art, highlighting the Southern Landscape, Everglades and Tropical Paintings, includes oceans, beaches, water birds, palm trees and tropical plants.  Her paintings are alive with sparkling light and vibrant color. She is also well known for creative Oil Portraits of pets, children and adults that capture personality and special moments, Laurie’s portraiture is detailed and traditional, yet alive with a contemporary blend of color and style.

Artwork by Ralph Papa

 

 

Beginning in the 1980’s Ralph began painting on location in the Hudson Valley and the Hamptons on Long Island and since 2002 in Palm Beach County. His subjects are from nature, life experiences and personal reflections of family and friends. In addition to plein air painting, Ralph does studio paintings, many of them larger than life faces creating pensive moods with feelings of isolation and loneliness. His most recent studio works are real and imaginative compositions that link him visually with artists he admires.

 

 

“Loxahatchee” by Ralph Papa

 

Ralph Papa is a passionate art activist, teaching drawing, painting and plein air workshops throughout Palm Beach County. As an art instructor he believes that a fine visual artist must be able to accurately reproduce images with minimum effort which will give them a better chance of success if they are true to who they are in creating something unique.

Ralph is a Signature Member and Past President of the Artists Guild of the Boca Raton Museum of Art and co-founder of Plein Air Palm Beach. His work is in many private and public collections in the United States, Canada and Europe.

“Deep Calls To Deep” by Lynn Doyal

 

Lynn Doyal is showcasing her unique, beautiful and contemporary work for at this  exhibit. Lynn combines hand stitching, beading, oil and acrylic paint all done on canvas. Due to the intricate number of details in each painting, her work is best viewed up close in order to appreciate the fine workmanship. Many of her works are scanned, enlarged and digitalized allowing for a more abstract and dramatic component. She delights in the different impact the same image can have when size is introduced as an additional element.

 

 

 

Lynn was born and raised in Miami and Fort Lauderdale. She received a Fine Arts degree from the University of South Florida.  She worked for Exxon at their New York headquarters and then transferred to Florida.  Working in corporate sales, she then moved to Xerox before starting her own company, “Signature Chocolates”.  Lynn specialized in providing premiums and incentives to corporations, hotels and cruise lines, around the globe.

 

 

“Blues” by Lynn Doyal

 

 

After raising her family, Lynn resumed her creative endeavors and developed her unique method of marrying contemporary design with old school techniques on canvas. Her original pieces of exquisite handstiching and detail can best be appreciated up close. When her designs are enlarged they make for a more abstract and dramatic component. The same image can have a different impact when size is introduced as an element.  “This marriage of image, technique and materials is distinctive and causes people to talk about what they are seeing because there is nothing else like it”.  

 

 

Lynn’s award winning art pieces live most happily in contemporary settings.  They especially delight interior designers, complimenting the  spaces they design with appreciative clients in mind.  Lynn’s painstaking technique of painting and embellishing the canvas with hand-stitched beads and colorful threads make each piece one-of-a-kind.
