Her ability to anatomically nail any living species on the planet evokes commissions from those wanting sports figures to look like their children to those wanting an exact replica of a dog or a goat.  MaryEllen’s teaching abilities have a loyal following of students who have worked under her supervision for decades.

 Afternoon Salon/Discussion Forum

 

 

On Saturday, March 8,  2014 from  2 pm until 4 pm The Artists of Palm Beach County will present an interesting and informative afternoon program.  Three of our member artists in the current exhibit entitled “PARTNERS” will discuss their works. The artists who will make up the panel will be Maxine Schreiber, Norman Berman and Debby Mostel.   

 

 

Maxine Schreiber

These artists represent divergent styles and media. Maxine Schreiber’s style is representational,  fundamentally landscape images.  Norman Berman’s watercolors and gouache are detailed abstractions and Debbie Mostel’s works are surrealistic assemblages. Each are strikingly different, yet there are consistencies among them they have in common.

 They will each discuss their creative background and training and then they will interact with one another.  There will then be a question and answer period from members of the audience. 

Admission is free but seating will be limited.

Debbie’s education in art spans the globe. Her high-end sterling and glass fashion jewelry were sold in famous venues such as Bloomingdales, Saks Fifth Avenue, and Nordstrom. They were also featured in publications such as the New York Times, Cosmopolitan, Vogue, and Harpers Bazaar.  Debbie currently incorporates castings of her jewelry elements into her paintings. Most of her work is half painted and half collaged with not just jewelry, but also many other found objects that contain special meaning to the artist.

After seeing Debbie’s work, well-known painter and gallery owner Jo Anne Berkow said “I immediately decided that I wanted to rep her in my gallery. To date her work has caused a lot of excitement. It is fresh, unique and makes a strong statement about the world we live in and the environment.”
