About The National League of American Pen Women:

The Boca Raton Branch of the National League of American Pen Women (NLAPW) is an organization of professional women in the arts – writers, artists and musical composers. Established 43 years ago, the Boca Raton Branch is one of the largest branches in the country.

Members have opportunities to interact with other professional women and showcase their creative work in public forums. Workshops, art exhibits, lectures, music programs, competitions and special events are offered. The Branch supports the local community through outreach programs and scholarships awards.

The National League, headquartered in Washington, D.C, is the oldest women’s organization in the U.S. Throughout its 120-year-history, the NLAPW has attracted many prominent women to its rosters, including Eleanor Roosevelt, Pearl Buck, Erma Bombeck and Edna Hibel. Vinnie Ream, whose statue of President Lincoln stands in the U.S. Capitol Rotunda, was an early member of the NLAPW.

From October to April, the Boca Raton Branch holds luncheon programs, featuring interesting and inspiring speakers. Guests are welcome to attend the luncheons and meet our creative members. To register for a luncheon, visit our Web site and download a reservation form.

Rickie’s mission is to help emerging artists achieve meaningful careers and to guide professional artists in finding their niches.  With a world-wide readership, The Rickie Report brings visual artists and art lovers/art patrons together.  For her, these relationships are the bonds that create a well-educated and well-rounded community.

Rickie’s own creative process over the years has included fiber art, one-of-a-kind wearable art necklaces, and mosaics.  In addition to having earned an MSW, Rickie has served as a long-time volunteer in national and international non-profits, providing her with a solid on-the-ground education for marketing, communication and leadership training.  She and her husband, Jeff, publish The Rickie Report while enjoying the cultural bounties around them.    Contact Rickie@TheRickieReport.com

Nicole Galluccio

 

 

 

 

Nicole Galluccio has her own unique style of mixed media “happy” art.  She is best known for her bright stylized florals with her wearable art in shoes, pins, and purses.  Her collages incorporate music, mod fashions, comics and tabloid newspapers spinning them into visual explosion of color against a black and white background.  Nicole’s  work has been exhibited at the Cultural Council of Palm Beach County, Continuum, the Boca Museum of Artist’s Guild and most recently a solo exhibit “Full Bloom” at the Cornell Art Museum in Delray Beach.  She tells The Rickie Report, “I see every day as an opportunity to grow.  I believe art is for everyone and I strive to have something available for all budgets”.

 

 

 

Wearable Art by Nicole Galluccio

 

In college Nicole majored in Biochemistry but as soon as she began bio illustrations she found her true calling.  However, she worked for 15 years in the corporate world and worked with her art on the side.  After several successful shows, Nicole left her corporate job and became a full time artist.  She is now located in a studio in the Boynton Beach Art District where she continues to evolve as an artist.  Nicole Galluccio is a mixed media visual artist, originally from New Jersey, living and creating in South Florida since earning her BFA from Florida Atlantic University in 1998. Nicole’s mixed media work often juxtaposes bright beautiful florals atop a stark black and white paper background, to demonstrate depth and opposition both visually and emotionally. Her work intends to evoke happiness and positive emotional response through colorShe has shown several times in the Cultural Council of Palm Beach County as well as in fine art fairs and galleries in Florida and is currently a resident artist at the Boynton Beach Art District.  She will take part in a group exhibition at the Cultural Council of Palm Beach County, “ Play with your Food”.  The opening preview party is Thursday, September 13th and the Exhibit opens to the public on September 14th. 

Nicole Galluccio was chosen to take part in a Public Art Project , “Aesop’s Tables”

 

 

Nicole’s work provides the viewer an escape into something purely joyful and fun, oppositional to reality as a means to feel a positive emotional connection. Painting this imagery has been an escape mechanism for her own internal struggle, as viewers would say, “The work just makes me happy” …. Color can be very powerful and when used properly, in conjunction with light imagery, and contrast, it provokes a carefree experience. And who wouldn’t want to be around that?  

 

 


Artwork by Nicole Galluccio

 

 

 

 

Going forward, Nicole intends “to explore more challenging detail, media and color exploration. In 2017 and 2018, I focused mostly on evolving into more inspiring realms in symmetry within my work, with the Sacred Series; homage to sacred geometry via the mandala but exclusively using elements used in all previous work”.  The work presented in her most recent solo exhibition at the Cornell Museum of Art in Delray Beach, “Full Bloom” illustrates the evolution of Nicole’s work from 2017 to present, with the intention of bringing all previous elements together, in a bolder magnified light as well as in new media and construct.

Habitat For Humanity New Homeowner’s Quilt, A Gift from PBCQG

About the PBCQG:

Do you like to work on projectAprils in your own home? We have directions available for our Habitat for Humanity of Palm Beach County Welcome Home quilts, and for Project Linus quilts. We also have directions posted for a great name badge holder you can make for your name tag, the PBCQG logo patch, and pin. Or, you can sew interesting items for the Boutique committee as they dream up new items to offer in the Boutique at our Guild meetings or at our shows.

Do you prefer to work in a group? We gather after meetings several times a year for community outreach “sew-ins” where you can cut, press, sort, sew, bind, or quilt projects for veterans, Habitat for Humanity partner families, and other Palm Beach County community services. Additionally, many members gather in small groups around town to work together on community projects. See the list in each month’s newsletter.

Do you like to help children learn about quilt-making? We love helping children (and their parents) learn about and appreciate quilt-making. Our largest project is our Kids’ Corner throughout the seventeen days of the South Florida Fair each year. We have offered different activities over the last 30 years, but all of them involve a way for children – even the young ones – to make something related to quilt-making. Currently, the children use crayons to draw designs on light-colored fabric that we heat-set and make into small Project Linus quilts – often right there at the Fair. Children and parents often stop by later the same day to see the quilt that their block is in. These quilts are distributed to community-based organizations throughout Palm Beach County – many are carried on fire trucks and used to comfort children in crisis situations. The Fair lasts for seventeen days each January and we always need members (and their friends and family) to help with Kid’s Corner and with other tasks such as demonstrating hand-quilting, machine-quilting, and offering opportunities to win the special theme quilt available that year. Get free admission the day you work!

Sign up to work a shift of your choosing at any Fall Guild meeting or by contacting Nancy Ialacci or Donna Jesse. We especially need volunteers to work the evening shifts – that way, you can enjoy the Fair during the less-crowded daytime, have dinner, and then work the booth from 6-10 pm

Another way we help children learn about quilt-making is to conduct special programs, such as the quilt-making class at the Fair’s summer camp in Yesteryear Village. Children, 8-12 learn what life was like in “the old days” and they learn basic sewing and quilting skills.

Do you like to learn new skills? Most Guild meetings include a program, which teaches a quilt-making skill or concept. During the year, we have several workshops with talented local, regional, and national instructors on tradition, modern, and art quilt-making. See the newsletter for the latest information on programs and workshops.

Do you enjoy sharing your quilt-making knowledge with others? Let the Guild vice president or workshop chair know that you are interested in teaching a short program or a long workshop.

Would you like working with our wonderful library of quilt-making books and videos? You can help the library committee catalog new acquisitions, lend and receive the books and videos, or help members find ones related to their quilt-making interests.

Would you enjoy helping with our annual challenge, or the construction of our annual Fair and “opportunity” quilts? Contact the committee chairs and let them know.

How about assembling membership packets? Preparing Birthday Basket fat-quarters? Holding quilts up for display during Show and Tell? Just contact the committee chair – they would love, love, love your help!

And, there is always a lot to do before each meeting. If you find joining a new group a bit awkward, pitching in and working along side someone is an easy way to break the ice. Sign up to be the “Gate Greeter,” from 9:15 – 10 am, and provide wagons for members and guests to use for their heavy items. This way, you get to meet everyone coming into the meeting. Just sign up on the clip-board circulated during each meeting. Join us in the Bink Museum at 8:30 am any meeting day and help set up the tables and chairs and be part of the camaraderie that forms as we work together. Join Us!
