MEET   THE   ARTIST:

 

Katie Gianni

 

 

 

Katie Gianni tells The Rickie Report, ” I developed a passion for ink and printing while studying lithography and wood block in college. I graduated from Stockton University of New Jersey with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Visual Arts and Printmaking. After moving to the Treasure Coast in 2015, I found myself without a printing press and in an artistic rut. I began painting with India ink to mimic linocut prints, and incorporated metallics to embellish the subjects shape and details such as feathers, scales, feet and facial features.

 

 

“The Hand That Feeds” by Katie Gianni

 

 

Katie is an emerging artist residing in Port Saint Lucie, FL. Her eye-catching, ornate artworks are created using a multitude of inks and acrylics on textured paper. Inspired by aboriginal and art nouveau styles, each painting is adorned with metallic gold, copper and/or silver ink, with intricate patterns in white ink. Her work focuses on local and exotic wildlife – including birds, reptiles, insects, fish and other ocean-dwellers; however, other subjects include furniture/home decor items, abstract portraits and repeat patterns.

Last year, Katie was thrilled to have her painting, “Sandhill Cranes in Moonlight”, featured in the A.E. Backus Museum’s Best of the Best 2017 show in Fort Pierce, Florida. Her artwork will be showing at Kling Gallery Wine & Décor from October 3 – 31.  For more information on Katie Gianni, visit her website at:   www.katiegianniart.com.

MEET   MIMI  McCALLUM

 

Opening Reception:

Friday, August 24th

5 – 7 PM  

Exhibit runs through September

 

 

MEET   THE   ARTIST:

 

 

 

 

“Self Portrait” by Mimi McCallum

 

 

After years of creating visually recognizable imagery Mimi McCallum has taken a new direction!  Her new path is taking her into the world of abstract.  The pieces are painted with cold wax medium and oil paint.  Oil pastels, graphite oil sticks and other medium find their way into the mix.  Mimi’s brushes have been laid aside, as the paint is applied to canvas or cradled board with an assortment of tools: squeezes, spatulas, knives, rollers, printing implements, anything is in the game!

 

“Get Crackin” by Mimi McCallum

 

 

This luscious medium can be layered and layered, carved into and scraped away creating interesting textures and fascinating color blends.  The paintings have a history that is revealed and interwoven into the final image. Her one requirement is that the painting will stand compositionally from any direction, so it may be hung and viewed in personal preference.   Mimi’s paintings are intuitive and spontaneous with no initial plan.  Her “New Directions” take her on the creative journey, and she invites us along with her!

 

 

  “In The Park” by Mimi McCallum

 

 

 

Mimi received her Master of Art Education from Florida International University in Miami, her BA from Montana State in Bozeman MT.  She completed the Florida art certification from FSU in Tampa. Mimi attended Anchorage West High, where her father was an FBI agent.  She is married with two children and two grandchildren.

 

“Untitled” by Mimi McCallum

 

 

Mimi puts her talent to work in her studio in Jensen Beach, FL, and exhibits throughout Florida and the Bahamas.  She tells The Rickie Report, “Through my art I aspire to capture moments in time that relate to memories that touch our hearts. I aspire to create images of objects, places and figures with pleasing shapes and energetic color.”  Mimi’s new work was recently exhibited at Art Synergy 2018.

“Awakening” by Sally Painter, Oil Painting

 

 

 

Sally tells The Rickie Report, “Membership in the Oil Painters of America is a major milestone for me. To be recognized by my peers and asked to exhibit with this 3,400-member organization is a tremendous honor. The group’s mission is to promote and preserve the tradition of representational oil painting, and toward that end, the OPA sponsors a number of juried exhibitions like this one across the United States each year. Competition for a place in these shows is fierce, so I’m delighted to be included”.  She is grateful to artist, Brian Davis, for his guidance in the creation of this painting.

 

 

 

 

“Arizona Cactus Flower” by Sally Painter, (Also available as a giclee)

 

Growing up on a farm and co-owning a nursery for most of her life, Sally Painter has always been surrounded by the beauty of the natural world. So it’s really not surprising that she turned to nature for inspiration when she took up painting. The fascinating shapes, delicate textures, and vibrant colors of flowers and other plants and trees are her favorite subjects.

 

Yet, Sally says, she strives to paint something more than simply a realistic depiction of these subjects. She notes, “I interpret the subject with brush in hand, allowing my imagination to select colors and forms.” Like one of her artistic heroes, Georgia O’Keeffe, Sally invites us to enter in to her subjects, to experience them, to have a visceral reaction to them. Above all, Sally’s oil paintings allow us to see as she sees—what she describes as “God’s amazing way of creating each so uniquely and so beautifully.”

“Three Amigos” by Sally Painter

 

 

What began as a hobby has since become an important new chapter in her life, including the formal study of art and painting at the Boca Raton Museum Art School. “Painting is my therapy, my peaceful, creative place, and I treasure that,” says the artist.

 

In recent years, she has been profiled in VoyageMIAAmerican Art Collector, ARTisSpectrum, and Artist Showcase, and Southwest Art’s September 2015 edition named her one of their Nationally Emerging Artists. Sally has participated in a number of significant art competitions, most recently the Oil Painters of America 2018 Juried Salon Show, both the Spring and Fall 2017 NOAPS International Online Juried Exhibitions, the Western Spirit Art Show and Sale (2018), the Divine Floral Essence group show (2017), the Women Painters of the Southeast 6th Annual Juried Online Exhibition (2017), the Botanik Group Exhibition (2017), the R.S. Hanna Gallery Fall Showcase (2017), the 26th Annual All Florida Juried Arts Show (2016), the Art at the Mill Group Exhibition (2016), and the 2nd ART and FLOWERS Juried Exhibition (2016). She was also the featured artist at the Palm Beach International Airport in 2011. In addition to being a member of the Board of Trustees of the Boca Raton Museum of Art, Sally has been juried in as a member of the following organizations:

•  International Guild of Realism

•  Oil Painters of America

•  National Oil and Acrylic Painters Society

•  American Women Artists

•  Boca Raton Museum of Art Artists’ Guild

•  Artists of Palm Beach County
