Art Lofts Of West Village In Lake Worth Announces Purchase Assistance To Artist Households

The Art Lofts of West Village in Lake Worth announces purchase assistance is available.  Eight new townhomes with ground level studios are under construction and will be sold to Artist households. Purchase assistance is available to qualified buyers, if you or a member of your household is an artist and can afford a mortgage of approximately $150,000.  This is phase 2 of 20 total live-work townhomes in the West Village located at the corner of Lucerne Avenue and F Street across from the Lake Worth Arts Center. 

 

 

 

 

“Artist” – an individual with a record of professional accomplishment demonstrated through continuous public presentation and peer acceptance as either an emerging artist of outstanding promise or as an established artist with a recognized body of work. A determination of “artist” status is dependent on experience, reputation and achievements verified through a resume, letters of recommendation and support materials. Determination can also be made by the applicant’s job description and years working in an art-related field. This could include such trades or occupations as architect, graphic and web designers, theater, teaching in an art-related field, writers, interior decorators and others that work in an art-professional field. An “artist” does not have to work full-time as an artist but those that do not must have a professional and recognized body of work. Presentation to a screening committee is required.

 

 

 

The Rickie Report shares this Call for Artists to join 12 current resident artists in the West Village of Lake Worth. Each townhome includes street level studio space with attached garage, 2 bedrooms and 2 ½ baths. Delivery is planned for Early 2018. We share the details here and contact information. This is an amazing opportunity!

 

 

 

Construction is underway!

Artist and Art Instructor, Ana Noble

 

Ana was born and raised in San Juan, Puerto Rico. At the age of 14 she started painting under Professor Fran Cervoni. Her early area of concentration was in still life oil painting. She later expanded her interest towards watercolors and acrylics.

 

“Street Scene From Puerto Rico” by Ana Noble

 

 

Her painting career accelerated when she continued her studies under the noted Spanish watercolorist and longtime resident of Puerto Rico, Guillermo Sureda. His exquisite style has had a great influence on her watercolor subject matter.   Ana Noble’s specialties include typical scenes of Puerto Rico, especially Old San Juan. 

 

 

 

“Poinciana” by Ana Noble

 

 

 

Her original paintings and her reproductions are in great demand for gifts and personal enjoyment because they recapture fond remembrances of beautiful Puerto Rico.  Ana shares her passion, skill, and vast experience with students at the LWAL where she teaches Friday afternoons. Ana and her husband of 54 years, Peter Noble, are residents of Greenacres. They have three children and three grandchildren.

 

“Street Scene of Puerto Rico” by Ana Noble 

The Lake Worth Art League’s mission is fostering community involvement and appreciation of art while providing opportunities for artists of every skill level to explore, develop, and sell their creations!

JANET  ONOFREY

 

 

“Ditto” by Janet Onofrey

 

Janet Onofrey started teaching this summer at the Boca Raton Museum. In the fall she will be teaching painting on Fridays and an evening class on perspective drawing. Janet is a perceptual painter, painting from direct observation. Her paintings capture the specific light and mood of South Florida.

 

Beginning Drawing With Janet Onofrey

 

 

 

She seeks out the silent spaces of early morning back alleys or quiet suburban neighborhoods. Her paintings were feature in the Cultural Quarterly Magazine last summer after she was awarded the prestigious South Florida Cultural Consortium Fellowship.

 

 

Still Life Set-Up with Janet Onofrey

 

Janet is a natural teacher, she loves sharing her technique with students and delights in those moments when the students ‘get it’, when they understand her lessons on drawing and color and put it altogether.  For beginners Janet sets up still-lifes designed for students to learn how color interacts and the pleasure of successfully painting what you see.

For more information on Janet’s artwork visit her website http://www.janetonofrey.com

 

 

 

 

 

RENÉE PLEVY

 

“Racquel” by Renée Plevy

 

 

Starting in September, Renée Plevy will be teaching portrait painting using oils. In oil paint you can capture the light and subtleties of skin tone that cannot be achieved with quick drying acrylics. With years of experience teaching, Renée presents a simplified method of block out the form and building up tones that even the absolute beginner feels confident in painting their first portrait.

 

 

 

 
Renée Plevy is an acclaimed portrait painter that has painted hundreds of commissioned portraits over the past 30 years. Like many accomplished artists, Renée studied with a number of leading figurative painters in New York to glean from each of them in order to develop her own style. 

 

 

” Countess de Hoernle” by Renée Plevy

She maintained a studio at 41 Union Square and taught at the School of Visual Arts in New York City before relocating to South Florida.  In 2012 Renée founded the “Portrait of a Woman” charitable event that honors women community leaders. Renée has painted 23 portraits of the honorees include the Countess de Hoernle.
