Lighthouse ArtCenter Satellite Exhibition, “Art Of The Figure” Opens On the 22nd Floor Capitol Gallery, Tallahassee, FL, Featuring Sam Perry, Terre Rybovich, Purvis Young

If you’re traveling to the State Capitol this summer be sure to visit the artwork of three native born Floridians who surprise and delight us with their entirely unexpected viewpoints, talents and techniques. The Lighthouse ArtCenter, based in Tequesta, is proud to present these important testaments to our shared humanity. These accomplished artists translate their individual life experiences using only pencils and paint on paper and canvas, or in the case of Purvis Young, anything he could get his hands on. Highlighted are: Sam Perry, Terre Rybovich, and Purvis Young (Florida Artist Hall Of Fame, 2018).   The Rickie Report shares the details and some sneak peeks. Many thanks to Janeen Mason for curating this seminal exhibit, available now through August 31st.

Sam Perry

 

Sam Perry grew up in West Palm Beach, Florida, and is now one of the area’s most accomplished artists. He achieved success as an abstract artist in galleries in Miami, New York and elsewhere. Then, in the wake of 9/11, Sam chose to focus on the human figure. “It was a paradigm shift for me,” he explained. “I became more aware of humanity and its frailty.”

Sam is an active proponent of the arts in his community. A member of the faculty of the Armory Art Center since 1987, he is now the longest- serving person there. He also taught art at Florida Atlantic University, Palm Beach Atlantic University and Dreyfoos School of the Arts, in addition to giving private lessons.

Sam received all of his education in Florida. He earned his Bachelor of Fine Art at Ringling College of Art and Design and his Master of Fine Art at Florida Atlantic University.

“I like to draw in public spaces because it connects me to my community.” Sam added, “Palm Beach county is significant to the arts in Florida and becoming more so as the population continues to grow and evolve into sophisticated art-lovers.”

Sam Perry is the recipient of the South Florida Cultural Consortium Fellowship. His work has appeared in numerous solo exhibitions and is collected by museums, universities and private patrons.

 

 

Terre Rybovich

 

Each of these large drawings began with Terre Rybovich charcoaling the entire surface of the paper and then lying down on it. The idea came to her years ago while delirious with the flu. “Drawing backwards” is how it initially presented itself. In other words, she removes charcoal to create an image instead of adding charcoal to paper.

Focused on figurative work, the body seemed like the most promising means for removing charcoal. The imprints are subtle but powerful, even edifying. She explains an unexpected outcome of this technique is how the mind reacts when confronted with creative input that it did not generate. Every new drawing requires a period of slow absorption, or acquiescence, before the mind can yield to the body’s input. Then the imprint guides the process of completing the drawing.

Ultimately, the result of the body calling the shots at the drawing board is that she creates artwork that the mind could not have imagined. This means she works in a state of perpetual wonder.

Other artists have imprinted their art with their bodies since the earliest cave paintings. What captivates us is the unadulterated impact of this most literal means of making the immaterial material— which is the essence of art.

Terre’s formal education covered politics and economics. Her first career was in social justice activism and grant-making. That activist experience forged an enduring commitment to this world. It also instilled a courageous drive that she channels into art-making where she is happiest when she ventures beyond what is known.

She is the daughter of Tommie Rybovich, the noted boat designer and builder. Ms. Rybovich proudly claims an inheritance of self-guided vision and ambition for the work.

 

Purvis Young 1943-2010

Inducted into the Florida Artist Hall of Fame 2018

 

Born in Miami’s Liberty City neighborhood, visual artist Purvis Young is most associated with the Overtown neighborhood where he settled in the 1960s. A major figure in the world of “Outsider Art,” his work may be found in the collections of the American Folk Art Museum, the Corcoran Gallery of Art, the High Museum of Art, the National Museum of African American History and Culture, and the Philadelphia Museum of Art, as well as Overtown’s Black Archives History and Research Foundation of South Florida, among many others.

A prolific creator, Young served three years in prison as a teenager, where he began drawing and studying art books from the prison library. “I didn’t have nothing going for myself,” he said. “That’s the onliest thing I could mostly do. I was just looking through art books, looking at guys painting their feelings.”

His work, highly influenced by Western art history, is colorful and vibrant, often serving as social critique and a call to action for social justice. Young painted and drew on a multiplicity of objects including found wood, discarded cardboard, doors, old utility bills, and printed pages from books. His installation “Good Bread Alley” consisted of multiple works affixed to the walls of a vacant alley in Overtown. Artworks were often sold or removed, then replaced with new works, and the installation/mural soon attracted the attention of the media and Bernard Davis, owner of the Miami Art Museum, who became an early patron, providing art supplies to the artist.

 Catered by Chris Marshall of Hampton Forks

 

Master colorist and Interior Designer Gil Walsh has been winning regional East Coast design awards over the past twenty years and has now captured the eye of the Houzz national architecture and design community. Gil is passionate about her work and takes pride in sharing her knowledge and experience as she has done in her book published in 2016 called “Gil Walsh Interiors – A Case for Color.”

 

 

Gil Walsh

 

 

Working primarily in Palm Beach, Pennsylvania, and Martha’s Vineyard, Gil’s exquisite book comes to life with rooms showing that color can be enjoyed with gusto, whether in pretty pastels or bold, bright hues. From beach houses in the Florida Keys, to sky-scraping apartments in Palm Beach, historic landmark buildings such as Fallingwater and the Duquesne Club in Pennsylvania, and a cozy cottage on Martha’s Vineyard, Gil has applied her artistic eye and techniques to a wide variety of interiors and period styles.

 

Gil Walsh is an active member in the American Society of Interior Designers and a member of the Society of Classical Architecture. Her work has been featured in Architectural Digest, Palm Beach Magazine, Florida Design, Jupiter Magazine, Luxe, Beautiful Homes, Florida Travel and Lifestyle, New England Homes and Vineyard Style to name a few. In 2017 Gil designed a room for the 2017 Kip’s Bay Decorator Show House in New York.

 

Known for her extraordinary eye for detail in design, color and fabrics, Gil Walsh has led over $200 million in interior design work over 40 years. She grew up in homes filled with classic design and style and realized early in life that interior design was her calling as it enabled her to integrate her keen fashion sense, with her deep interest in art history and architecture.
