Plantation Art Guild Features Workshop With Lois Perdue, “Create BIG Art From Small Abstracts”

The Plantation Art Guild is offering a workshop with Lois Perdue, “Create BIG Art from Small Abstracts” on Friday, October 20th. This class will be an adventure to learn how to easily create abstract paintings beginning with a mini format! For those who have already taken Lois’ popular abstract workshops before and want to further explore abstract design, “go bigger”, experiment with a variety of mediums and/or recycle their unresolved abstract paintings, this workshop is for you!  Beyond abstract paintings, participants will learn new texturing techniques and how to use glazes and layers of paint to create dimension.  The Rickie Report shares the details and some sneak peeks.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

LOIS PERDUE’S WORKSHOP:

“CREATE “BIG” ART FROM SMALL ABSTRACTS”

PRESENTED BY PLANTATION ART GUILD

FRIDAY, OCTOBER 20, 2017
(RSVP by October 15th)

9:30 am –  4:00 pm

JIM   WARD   COMMUNITY   CENTER
301 NW 46TH AVE.     PLANTATION, FL 33317

 

 

Lois Perdue tells The Rickie Report, “This class will be an adventure for those wishing to learn how to easily create abstract paintings beginning with a mini format! And, for those who have already taken my abstract workshops before and want to further explore abstract design, “go bigger”, experiment with a variety of mediums and/or recycle their unresolved abstract paintings, this workshop is for you”!

Participants will be provided with sources of inspiration to “kick start” their learning process and have an opportunity to create at least ½ dozen mini abstract paintings.

But this class isn’t just about abstract paintings:

*It is about learning new texturing techniques
*It is about building layers of glazes and paints to create dimension
*And it is about how to use your own failed paintings as collage to make your paintings sizzle!

 

“Colorado” by Lois Perdue

 

 

 

Lois discovered that the technique of painting “smaller formats” has given her greater control over her painting.  This has led to her receiving awards and recognition in national, state and local competitions with her larger format works.  Although Lois paints on watercolor paper, canvas and wood panel, she prefers the magic of a plastic paper called Yupo.  It has a slick surface unlike watercolor paper and when it meets water media, colors virtually explode. She begins all her under first layers with watercolor paints, powdered watercolor pigments, watercolor inks, glazes and markings to establish a foundation and then proceeds to acrylic paints and acrylic inks, charcoal and pen for mark making, oil pastels and, of course, collage! Each of her finished paintings may have 10, 15 or more layers, all each having been “set” with varnish to hold the colors. To see some of her paintings, please visit her website at: www.loisperdue.com

 

“30 Day Challenge” by Lois Perdue

 

Lois has lived in South Florida her entire life and teaches abstract workshops upon request throughout the area.  She is very active in the art community and is a member of Plantation, Weston, Broward and Coral Springs Art Guilds, Florida Watercolor Society, International Society of Experimental Artists, XII Voices, an informal group of 12 professional water media artists who meet monthly to exchange current art information and offer critiques and evaluations from their peers. She is also first vice president and program chair of the Fort Lauderdale Branch of the National League of American Pen Women, an organization comprised of artists,
writers and composers!

 

 

 

 

For cost of workshop and further information please visit: www.plantationartguild.org.

Lois can be reached at runner12@bellsouth.net.

 

The Plantation Art Guild is a small, but very active arts organization founded in 1973 and incorporated in 1986 as a non-profit. PAG, which currently has 102 members, offers workshops, four juried shows with cash awards and monthly meetings. A guest artist demonstrates different techniques at the monthly meetings which are held throughout the season that runs from September to May. PAG also holds regularly scheduled paint-ins.

Since its beginning, Plantation Art Guild has endeavored to award one or more scholarships annually to students who are residents of Plantation or attend a Plantation high school and plan to continue their education in Fine Arts.

Wanting to further expand the quality of his work, Tony added silk screening to his many skills. “I never really cared for faces done in stained glass so one day I had a brainstorm – use a silk screened photo on the glass.” He tried using a picture of his wife and the results were simply stunning. “After that piece, I was hooked on using screen printing anytime I could. Although I have created a lot of really nice pieces, my best works of art are my young children Maya and Lucas.”

A SOLO EXHIBITION :

SUSAN  OAKES

OPENING  RECEPTION

FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 15, 2017

 5 -8  PM

Exhibition runs September 11 – 29, 2017

 

 

 

 “9/11 Steel” (Above) is a new piece, being unveiled for the first time at this Exhibition  About the 9/11 memorial in NYC, it is a collage of an illustration of a veteran who has lost a limb in war and a piece of steel from the twin towers which is displayed in the 9/11 Memorial Museum in NYC.

 

Susan tells The Rickie Report,  “In my recent collage pieces, I create composites of several photos, and sometimes vector illustrations as well. They are not only layered, but have various other effects such as painting, blending and masking to achieve a certain look. I often begin with the human form and then relate it to elements in the natural world, such as water, plant life, or landscapes. The viewer’s eye is drawn around the piece to discover both the individual elements and how they coalesce to form the whole.”

 

 

 

“Chasms” by Susan Oakes

 

 

“I am a freelance digital artist/instructor with a diverse background in psychology, business, art and technology.  Having never been a person with merely one goal, one purpose, I’ve traveled a multi-faceted personal and vocational road of discovery. Through my work and teaching, I demonstrate that art and technology are not antagonistic, but can coexist and should be used to enhance each other in new and exciting ways. In my digital work I blur the borders between photography, painting, and digital illustrate on to achieve my artistic vision”.

 

“Rapture” by Susan Oakes

 

 

Susan explains, “What I do is not really traditional photography, but “Photo Imaging” in which I use enhanced techniques such as layering, masking, and digital “hand painting”.  Although it originates with computer hardware and software, my work is not the result of anything “automatic”, and is developed from my original photography. There is no “formula” or automatic process; no two pieces are done in exactly the same way”.

 

“Duplicity” by Susan Oakes

 

 

Susan’s artwork has been seen in juried art exhibits throughout the State of Florida as well as in New York and Maryland. She has been a Featured Artist at numerous galleries in Southeast Florida, along with other SOLO exhibitions. Susan has been recognized with multiple awards for her innovative artistry, in addition to exhibits on-line (Art Ascent Magazine, June, 2013 and Light Space and Time www.lightspacetime.com)

Oil Painting by Lynne Pittard

 

 

Lynne Pittard was born in Augusta, Georgia but moved to Miami as a child. After high school she attended Florida Southern College. She married in 1965 and moved to Palm Beach County with her husband and three children. She spent the next twelve years caring for her family. She first began to paint in oils as a hobby in 1980 but was so gifted that she shortly began teaching at a local high school.

 

Oil Painting by Lynne Pittard

 

 

 

Within her second year of painting she was teaching oils at three local art leagues, three continuing education programs at high schools and one at Palm Beach Junior College (now Palm Beach State College). Lynne is an artist that paints with passion and versatility and her paintings have a subtle softness that created an overwhelming demand for her classes.

 

Oil Painting by Lynne Pittard

 

 

 

Her desire to share her passion for painting led to becoming an instructor on national television “Painting with Pittard” which has aired nationwide for twenty-five years. Her images are licensed and published worldwide and a favorite of collectors and she is also the author of eight books on the art of painting. Lynne shares her love of painting through workshops and seminars, traveling and teaching in over thirty states and abroad.

A true visionary and artist’s advocate, Lynne launched a revolutionary concept for television with her Visual Arts Network, a satellite and cable network with the finest art instructions and entertainment programs available worldwide through TV and IPTV.

Coordinator and chalk artist extraordinaire, Jennifer Chaparro tells The Rickie Report, “It’s the first time we’ve done it here (or anywhere in South Florida). We want kids and families to come and fill in the giant peace sign, and chalk images of what peace means to them. The national and world wide reaching organization that is run by a fellow chalk/streetpainting friend of mine, John Aaron. Chalk is a great way to get kids involved in thinking about peace on a local and global level”.

 

Jennifer goes on to say, “We’d like groups to apply, but individuals and families can show up without an application, and as long as we have chalk and space, they can participate! It’s free and we will have chalk available, but we recommend they bring knee pads, hand wipes, carpet to sit on, water and their own chalk if they want. People can come and go at any time, but it will probably be cooler in the morning. There is no rain date, but we’ll try, even if it’s lightly raining in the morning, and hope for a nice sunny and cool day”.

 

 

 

 

 

What is CHALK4PEACE?

Chalk4Peace is the global chalk art project about peace. We’re celebrating our twelfth year as a worldwide event. CHALK4PEACE, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit arts organization.

We’ve had more than 1000 events in 50 countries and have covered more than 10 miles of pavement with messages and visions of peace in sidewalk chalk. We believe in “Drawing the World Together…”

CHALK4PEACE was part of the Student Peace Day Observance at the United Nations in New York last fall to honor the International Day of Peace.

Our goal: ONE MILLION artists chalking 4 peace at the same time…

 

From its beginnings in 2003 in Arlington, VA, as a Sunday sidewalk chalk project for children, CHALK4PEACE has been recognized and funded by the Arlington Arts Commission, the DC Commission for the Arts and Humanities, the DC Mayor’s Office, the Humanities Project of Arlington, Whole Foods Markets, the CSC Invitational Cycling Classic, the Boulder Arts Commission, the Pasadena (CA) Community Foundation, UNICEF, the Clown and Clown Festival (Monte San Giusto, IT), the Gooden School, Beach E.S., Berkeley Earth Day, and hundreds of peace-minded individuals from around the world.

CHALK4PEACE has grown through the efforts of hundreds of events organizers, teachers, parents, community outreach coordinators, libraries, arts centers and other peace minded individuals and organizations.

CHALK4PEACE is not encouraged as an anti-war demonstration; rather, it is a Pro-Peace creative presentation for young artists of all ages.

 

The campaign to make CHALK4PEACE worldwide began on July 16, 2005, the day after the first CHALK4PEACE event at the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial Library in Washington, DC. John Aaron, the Global Project Founder of CHALK4PEACE and chalk events coordinator, began a print and email campaign, sending out more than 5,000 personalized emails and 6,000 full color brochures about CHALK4PEACE for 2005-6.  The global campaign spread coast to coast across the United States, to Cape Town, South Africa and in places in Europe.

 

 

CHALK4PEACE Mission Statement:

– To promote the arts by coordinating assemblies of young artists of all ages to draw their vision of peace in public and private spaces with sidewalk chalk as a scheduled worldwide event;

-To advocate for peace in a non-partisan manner such that all people may share their visions and messages of peace without regard to their nationality, ethnicity, or political beliefs;

– To encourage relationships between municipalities and artists so that communities around the world become united in supporting the expression of peace.
