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.

 

“Sunday Morning Sun” by Ralph Papa

 

 

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. His art is on display locally at The Neighborhood Gallery in Boynton Beach.  Ralph tells us,“As an artist, I find the process of creating a fine artwork highly energizing and even more fulfilling then the end product”.

“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.

“Jupiter Lighthouse” by Kathryn Morlock

 

 

Kathryn is a Miami native who has always had a passion for sketching, painting and photography. She took art classes all through school and obtained an Associates of Science degree in Commercial Art from Miami-Dade Community College (now Miami College).

“Key Lime Pier” by  Kathryn Morlock

 

 

 

Kathryn loves to travel and take photographs of scenes or people she might like to paint. Her favorite subjects are beaches, tropical landscapes, unusual or historic buildings and people in interesting places. There’s always a certain photo that inspires her to create a painting. Colors in nature, a scene, a subject, the mood created by light and dark and shadows capture her interest. The subject or scene determines the medium she will use: watercolor or oil.

Kathryn’s art has been displayed at the Armory Art Center, Art in Public Places at the Palm Beach International Airport, Wellington Community Center, Wellington City Hall, Art Fest on the Green, Lake Worth Art League, Palms West Hospital, Lighthouse Gallery and Art Center in Tequesta and Oak Bistro and Wine Bar.

“Blues” by Chris Kling

 

 

 

Chris Kling is a Tennessee native and received a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Alabama. She is married and has lived in many Florida cities and abroad in Singapore. She and her husband now reside in Stuart, Florida. Chris works predominately in oils because “the richness draws you into its depths and you can swim in it”. Her portraits show not only the person’s likeness but their personality, producing a finished painting that a family can cherish. Her landscapes combine plein air painting and working from photographs. Plein air provides a true vision of perspective and color and the photos give her the instant gesture or play of light. Composition, light, shadow and color give an emotional quality to her landscapes. She sometimes uses color on a certain spot just because she feels it should be there.

 

“Morning Bike Ride” by Chris Kling

 

 

Chris has participated in workshops by Mary Britton Lynch, Morgan Samuel Price, Joe Taylor and Larry Moore. She has done portrait workshops with Ann Kenyon, Daniel Greene, Steven Assael and Rob Liberace. She has attended the Portrait Arts Festival in Montgomery, Alabama and the Portrait Society of America conference in Washington, D.C. and Philadelphia which draws portrait artists from all over the world. She is a member of the Portrait Society of America, Plein Air Florida, Oil Painters of America and Women Painters of the Southeast.

 

“Out Of Water” by Chris Kling

 

 

 

Chris latest venture is the Kling Gallery, Wine and Decor which will be opening in Stuart in November. It will be a family business with her husband, son and daughter-in-law and will have her artwork, a working studio and an area for workshops. Her husband, Bill, will enjoy his passion for wine with a Napa style tasting room. Her son, Billy, builds furniture and his wife, Amanda, does décor so they will be there as well. The address is 723 Colorado Avenue, Stuart (corner of Colorado and Kindred). The family is very excited about their unique gallery.  “I think I am so fortunate to be able to do work that I love and at the same time be able to provide someone with a slice of time in a loved one’s life”.
