Light Painting Vlog by Jason Page

 

 

 

Jason’s father was an avid photographer, who moved his family to Palm Beach when Jason was very young.  After high school he went on to study film production in college and focused his cinematography on his love of surfing.  He produced, shot and edited four feature length award winning films.  Jason tells The Rickie Report, “Light painting is its own art form, just as drawing is an art form or painting is an art form.  Calling light painting a ‘photographic technique’ would be the same thing as calling painting a canvas technique”.

 

 

Light Painting by Jason Page

 

 

 

Jason discovered light painting by accident when shooting a full moon and he bumped his camera.  When he checked the image and saw the streak that the moon left across the sky it was his epiphany and from that moment on he was a light painter!  He is widely recognized as a leader in the light painting movement and has created ground breaking images.  He uses both digital and film but prefers shooting film whenever he can.  He uses his camera as an instrument for recording light and all of his paintings are created in real time and captured on the camera in one single photographic frame.  Jason creates his images in total darkness and paints with light just as a traditional  painter would with oils or acrylics.

 

Light Painting with Janelle Monae by Jason Page

 

 

Jason Pages’s paintings have been exhibited in many cities in Europe and India as well as the United States and throughout Florida.  Light painting is created in real time, captured to the camera in one single photographic frame using the Light Painting Brushes.

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.

Light refreshments will be served and there will be drawings for special door prizes. The public is invited for this unique exhibit.

Artwork by Laurie Snow Hein

Laurie tells The Rickie Report, “Half of all proceeds of my horse paintings will go to a Wild Horse Preserve of mine or purchaser’s choice. Purchaser will write out the check themselves on the spot. The donation is tax deductible so I will send in the check and the buyer gets a receipt. A win for us and a win for the beautiful horses I love. This month I submitted three of my horse paintings to the Wellington Community Center gallery for the Winter Equestrian Art Show. From now until April they will be displayed.  My collection of wild horse paintings is my way of helping preserve these truly amazing animals in their natural, protected environments”.

 

 

 

Laurie shares, “Horses are very close to my heart and I wanted to take the time out to explain why.  Like many children, I loved horses as a young girl. Television shows like Roy Rogers, The Lone Ranger and Westerns were always my favorite…because of the horses, of course. From my first pony, a gift from my grandpa at age eight, to my beloved “Spice” (a haflinger who is still my companion on frequent rides), I have seldom been without a horse”.

Artwork by Laurie Snow Hein

 

 

In 2010, Laurie spent a week in North Dakota with her daughter to visit the state parks and to also visit a horse sanctuary. “I wanted to see these magnificent animals for myself; to observe their natural beauty and behavior, unspoiled by the intrusion and control of man. My lifelong love affair with horses grew to be a serious, focused interest in the preservation and protection of the remaining wild herds in our country. Fascinated by these wild horse herds, I began capturing their magnificent, unspoiled beauty and behavior in a series of paintings. My first oil, a group of horses in full gallop, sold quickly.  Pryor Mountain and other non-profit wild horse reservations keep complete records of the herds via annual roundups. The sanctuaries always need funds to provide health care and to assure genetic integrity, especially of the mustang herd at Pryor Mountain”. 

 

Artwork by Laurie Snow Hein

 

 

Laurie teaches art classes, conducts workshops and displays her art in top festivals throughout the country. She is listed in “Who’s Who in American Art”, “Who’s Who in America” and “Who’s Who Of American Women”. She has painted executive portraits for Furman College, Palm Beach Atlantic College and St. Vincent Hospital. Avon Company commissioned her to paint the Mothers Day plate in 2009 which sold out. Her newest collection “Freedom’s Spirit” was started to raise awareness of the plight of the wild mustangs of America.

 

 

 

Laurie is best know for her Florida Tropical Landscapes. In addition to teaching art classes and conducting workshops, she is in demand at the top art festivals in the nation. Her art, highlighting the Southern Landscape, Everglades and Tropical Paintings, includes oceans, beaches, water birds, palm trees and tropical plants.  Her paintings are alive with sparkling light and vibrant color. She is also well known for creative Oil Portraits of pets, children and adults that capture personality and special moments, Laurie’s portraiture is detailed and traditional, yet alive with a contemporary blend of color and style.

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”.

Craig McInnis is a prolific artist, who knew he wanted to be an artist since his early childhood.  He tells The Rickie Report, “I am thrilled to be able to make my living doing creative work and I am grateful for the opportunities that have arisen in my life. To make art is a gift, and to share it, even better”.
