"Sunset On Solaris" by Laura Willems

“Sunset On Solaris” by Laura Willems

 

 

This SOLO Exhibition has 16 works of art on display, many as diptychs, triptychs and quartets, totaling 36 individual canvases.  Paintings from Laura Willems’ Interstellar Series will be shown, in which Laura creates a paint bath of mixed media into which she immerses the canvases. Also represented are selections from her Jackson Pollack and Miro’ periods.  In addition, a collection of 4″ x 4″ mini-panels, which interchange like puzzle pieces, will be shown for the first time.

 

 

"Firestorm Quartet" by Laura Willems

“Firestorm Quartet” by Laura Willems

Laura was born and raised in the Midwest, loves sports and the outdoors and spending time with animals. She earned a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Connecticut. An avid traveler, she has visited all seven continents and has been inspired by the very diverse cultures and landscapes she has experienced as well as the many museums she has visited over the years.

 

 

"The Fires Within" by Laura Willems

“The Fires Within” by Laura Willems

 

 

Laura’s art has evolved through those travels and by participating in many classes and seminars in various mediums and artistic styles. She has found guidance from her artist brother, Ira Bruce Reines and many fellow artists. A highly creative and passionate person, she constantly reinvents herself in order to explore new avenues of expression.

 

Laura Willems at  Wellington City Hall Exhibit with "Slash"

Laura’s art uses the laws of gravity, chemistry and physics to turn the canvases into unique highly kinetic interplays of vivid color that ebb and flow. Each painting is created in a mixed media bath of acrylics, oils, gesso and metallics of different density and liquidity. The canvas is dipped in this bath, then tilted and worked, allowing the mediums to flow and merge into complex patterns and intricate textures. Laura’s paintings can be viewed in any direction and explode in breathtaking brilliant colors.

 

 

"Heavy Metals" by Laura Willems

“Heavy Metals” by Laura Willems

 

Laura tells The Rickie Report,”As in a microcosm or vast universe, the innate laws of physics governing the world are at work as I create my latest series of paintings. For each canvas, I first create a bath of mixed media: acrylics, oils, gessoes, and metallics of different density and liquidity. “

 

 

"Life in Europa" by Laura Willems

“Life in Europa” by Laura Willems

 

Laura says: “Have you ever noticed that looking through a microscope can be similar to looking through a telescope? Is it a star or a piece of sand?  Particles, at the subatomic level, mimic planetary motion. The symmetry of the universe, ruled by the laws of nature, is key to my inspiration.  As I add each color and medium, the disparate chemical make-ups of the mediums react with each other, jockeying for position like rivers flowing along hydro-dynamic lines.”

 

 

Laura is a member of several Professional Associations, including Cultural Council of Palm Beach County, Artists of Palm Beach County, Wellington Art Society, Lake Worth Art League and International Association of Experimental Artists.

 

This SOLO Exhibition will conclude on June 15, 2015.

Please call 561-632-8225, for more information.

Works can be specially created to suit your home or office.

Unique Paper Art by Del Foxton

Unique Paper Art by Del Foxton

 

Del Foxton tells The Rickie Report, “Circa 105 AD the Chinese invented an awesome process to make paper. More than 2000 years later, I follow a similar process to create my fine art. My Artistry in Handmade Paper began with my belief in the saying that if you are not part of the solution, you are part of the problem!”

Del explains, “When having to take our own garbage to the local dump, I saw the opportunity to use our paper discards to create environmentally friendly artworks. Environmental responsibility together with a limited recycling program in our area prompted the obsession to up cycle paper and garden castoffs into artistic creations.”

Founded in 2005 and located on Grand Bahama Island, Adagio Art Gallery & Studio is where Del creates and exhibits her collection of handmade paper artworks using local vegetation and the discards of our consumeristic society as her main resource.

Del says, “The opportunity to honor our environment while indulging my passion of hand paper making pleases me. I believe that many establishments, homes and businesses who have already addressed environmental issues, may also want to consider extending their programs to the artistry hanging on their walls.”

"Four Views Tequesta Drive" by Hugh O'Neill

“Four Views Tequesta Drive” by Hugh O’Neill

 

 

Hugh O’Neill was born in Belfast, Ireland in 1959. He studied painting in Belfast Ireland from 1981-1985 spending some of that time studying in Nante and Paris, France. O’Neill’s approach to his oil painting is direct, bold and figurative. He is a visual musician who is forever searching for the ultimate melody on canvas, an artistic pioneer and a man who survived through brutal conflict growing up in war torn Northern Ireland. Hugh O’Neill has been a modest man all his life but his work speaks for itself in grand visual concertos of timeless skill. The poet of the day and the eyes of a truly gifted artist, he continues to work in silent hues of robust color for all to see. His work is alive and worth seeking out as its energy is best felt up close.

 

 

Hugh O’Neill owns a prominent place in art history, as an important modern master who has influenced countless others. Always ahead of his time, he first pioneered the En Plein Air teaching tradition into several leading art institutions including The Society of the Four Arts and the Lighthouse ArtCenter and Museum.  As one art writer once said, “Claude Monet himself would have admired the continued strength of O’Neill’s work”.  Hugh’s first U.S. one-man show on Worth Avenue, Palm Beach, in 1995 saw a complete sell out in the first night of the show, with collectors from New York to Paris.

 

"Lighthouse" by Hugh O'Neill

“Lighthouse” by Hugh O’Neill

 

This is a must see exhibition and a chance to meet the artist who is considered by some as one of the best living artists in the world. O’Neill’s work is represented in corporate, and gallery collections. Collectors of his work include former CEO of APPLE Computers,Bank of America (Palm Beach) and two former US Ambassadors.

AJ Brockman tells The Rickie Report, “The first week of our “soft opening” was a success! Please bear with us as we continue to go through some growing pains and implementing some changes. We’ve rolled out our new menu from Tacos don Pepe earlier than anticipated and will therefore no longer be allowing outside food to be brought in. We understand this was a big part of our atmosphere but we are only trying to make things better and offer more options. The entire menu is literally prepared from scratch with authentic Mexican recipes passed down through the generations. Vegetarian and vegan options are also available + over 6 homemade sangria’s. All you have to do is try it and you will see why we have decided to offer this exclusively!!”

 

Here’s The LineUp*

 

Tuesday – Musicians Showcase “In the Round” : 7 to 10 : $2 off draft & specialty wine. Bringing you a little bit of Nashville to Lake Park. Hosted by Bill Hartmann, this event is part storytelling, part jam session, and all out acoustic. Original music at its finest!
