NORTHWOOD VILLAGE MURAL PROJECT

We are proud to announce the start of the Northwood Village Mural Project creating the village with beautiful murals. They are looking for local businesses to also help by sponsoring murals, donating exterior wall space, and funding. The community can also help with fundraising and support.  Initially there will be 4-5 murals painted on buildings located on Northwood Road, Spruce Avenue and 25th Street. The goal is to beautify and bring more vitality to the neighborhood. Each mural will be painted by a different artist.  Artist List:  Craig McInnis @ 2417 Spruce Ave  Eduardo Mendieta @ 441 25th Street   Amanda Valdes

Delray Beach, FL

 

 

 

This third Thursday is Pat Kaufman’s one year aniversary at Artists’ Alley.  She tells The Rickie Report, “I can not believe it is one year already. I would like to invite everyone to come help me celebrate. I’m offering a 20% discount on all sales of my artwork this week and there will be wine and goodies. Some of my new pieces will be unveiled at this opening.  It will be fun!”

An award winning watercolor artist, Pat is known for her bright tropical, Key West style of paintings. She lives in a renovated cottage, built in the 1930s, in Pineapple Grove one of the historical districts of Delray Beach, with her son Trey, a disabled veteran.  In 2014, Pat was Featured Artist at the 25th Annual Delray Beach Festival of the Arts. One of her paintings was offered as the free give-away, a promotion by Howard Alan Events.

In addition to a special 20% discount on purchases to celebrate her anniversary, Pat offers fun craft classes for adults and children running all summer.  They are on different days and times.  She tells us that in her most recent class, “We are doing fish and mermaids.  All of my classes are small.  We have no more than 6 in a class.  This is a perfect place to bring a group of friends together or have some creative time with children.  Painting and embellishing is always fun!”  Contact Pat for more information and booking arrangements.

 

 

 

"Sea Window" by Pat Kaufman

Pat tells us, “I am inspired by the wonder of color. The transparency and spontaneity of watercolors gives life to my paintings. Here in Florida and other places I have visited, there is so much color all around you. When I observe the trees blowing in the breeze, the sunlight dancing off the leaves or the light shining through blossom petals, it inspires me to paint them and see if I can capture this dance of light.”   We love seeing her work on pillows, cutting boards, tiles and table tops as well as on walls!
