Overview Of NEW Dates For Gallery Exhibits And Calls For Artists Due To Circumstances Beyond Our Control-Hurricane Irma

Pardon the inconvenience (Irma), as The Rickie Report shares NEW dates of Exhibits, Gallery presentations and Calls for art.  Many artists have experienced losses of supplies, studios, and artwork due to Irma.  As these artists’ basic needs are being taken care of by other agencies, we would like to suggest other ways to help:  Support the local art scene by showing up for events, by talking to the artists, and by purchasing their art.

“This is an exciting launch to the 2017-2018 season,” said Lighthouse ArtCenter Curator, Janeen Mason, “It is certain to inspire the imagination and engage all the senses.”  The opening reception and awards ceremony on September 21, from 5:30-7:30 p.m., provides the opportunity for members and guests to enjoy a lovely glass of wine, sample delicious hors d’oeuvres, visit with the faculty, view the artwork and talk about their exceptional classes and workshops.

The opening of the 2017-18 season marks the 54th time the Lighthouse ArtCenter has provided Palm Beach and Martin counties a premier gallery and art school to attract visitors, vacationers and local patrons to enjoy, create, collect and relax with a unique variety of art forms.  “Our staff and faculty are ready and excited about the new season,” said Lighthouse ArtCenter Gallery and School of Art Executive Director Nancy Politsch. “We’ve all shined and polished for another year, and we’re excited to invite the community in. We have the art to make people smile and at the same time to think.”

 

According to curator Mason, many people dream of creating art, however, few are called to the profession early in life. Mason says our cultural heritage depends on both sets of people; those who start young and follow their dreams, and those who wake up one day and say to themselves, “If not now, then when?”

 

Have you wanted to try your hand at sculpting, drawing, painting or ceramics? Make time to visit this exhibition and decide for yourself where to begin the next chapter of your life experiences, check out the Lighthouse ArtCenter online catalog:

www.LighthouseArts.org/uploads/2/1/8/4/21842620/2017early-fall-fall-catalog.pdf

Join this Lighthouse ArtCenter family of artists who learn, laugh, create and collect together. For more information call (561) 746-3101.

 

“The Lighthouse ArtCenter has a gifted group of 35 faculty members with extraordinary talents,” said Politsch. “We are so proud to put their creativity on display to launch our new season. And nobody displays an artist’s work better than our own curator, Janeen Mason.”

 

Among the featured faculty artists are…

® Chad Steve: uniquely creative soda-fired pottery

® Chris Kling: internationally renowned portraits

® Manon Sander: colorfully evocative Plein Air paintings

® Ralph Papa: explores the unlimited landscapes of Plein Air paintings

® Jim Rigg: intriguing art with alcohol inks and watercolor

® Karen Leffel-Massengill: signature status with FWS and Society of Animal Artists

® Danuta Rothschild: provocative surrealism implies a little bit of magic and a lot of soul

® Justin White: multi-media and wire wrap jewelry

® Esther Gordon: collage with texture and design

® Alessandra Gieffers: celebrates life with exquisite pastels

® Eduardo Gomez: introduces his newest figurative sculpture to add to his fame

® Tracey Roedl: beautiful jewelry making with one of the all-time favorite instructors

And a unique opportunity to see very unusual work in the Pop Up gallery….
Kazimierz Kalkowski: one of Poland’s most prestigious ceramists

“The words of the Editor in Chief of Arts and Antiques, Barbara S. Tapp, provide a fitting summation,” said Mason. The more computerized the world becomes, the more important art is, especially that which bears the mark of the hand most clearly – paintings, drawings and sculpture in particular.” When there is a personal story behind the art, we tend to cherish the experience of creating and collecting even more.

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.

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.

 

Questions? Please contact Jennifer at the School of Art or by email at Jennifer@LighthouseArts.org.

MEET   THE   NEWEST   FACULTY:

 

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.
