Pamela Acheson Myers, Takes Award at “Art of Association”

Pamela Acheson Myers is an emerging artist with a growing list of galleries and juried exhibits showing her artwork.  While her abstract landscapes and seascapes  offer the viewer much to enjoy, the depth of her artistic abilities will excite you. Her abstract paintings are celebrations of color, imagined floating hibiscus blossoms have lives of their own, and her drawings of birds offer a super sense of realism.   As we go to publication, Pamela just notified us of her work’s acceptance to The Artists’ Challenge at the Plaza Theater in Manalapan!  The Rickie Report shares some highlights of Pamela’s dramatic creativity and the venues where you can see her work.

"Jets Colors" by Pamela Acheson Myers

“Jets’ Colors” by Pamela Acheson Myers

 

 

Pamela paints mostly on linen and occasionally on canvas, using acrylic paints.  Her paintings are as large as 4 x 6 feet and as small as 5 x 7 inches.  She explains to The Rickie Report, “Intense color has thrilled me for as long as I can remember,  whether it appears in a spectacular sunset, or a wildly wallpapered room or a tropical bird’s brilliant rainbow of feathers.” 
"Bahama Sunrise" by Pamela Acheson Myers

“Bahama Sunrise” by Pamela Acheson Myers

She says, “Since my childhood, I have been fascinated with the reflections that transpire when any combination of land and sky and water meet and I attempt to capture this in my abstract landscapes.

My purely abstract paintings are a tribute to the  extraordinary nature of color.”

 

 

 

"Can't Get Enough Of You" by Pamela Acheson Myers

“Can’t Get Enough Of You” by Pamela Acheson Myers

A world traveler and author, Pamela states, “The multitude of colors and reflections in the outdoors dazzle me!  I have been painting these vistas and the reflections they create from places all over the world, from Newport to the Florida Keys, to Venice, Italy to the fjords of Chile.  For me, every view of the convergence of land, water and sky is a magic moment – a natural canvas of colors and reflections never seen before.  Some are dramatic, some wildly chaotic and others blissfully peaceful. Every one is unique.”
"Just Passing By" by Pamela Myers

Her hibiscus series surprises, with brilliant blossoms becoming lively personalities in the night skies. Pamela’s bird portraits show exceeding details, as she continues to explore the depth of her range of artistry.

“As founder of Mother Ocean, it’s exciting to see conservation and the arts come together in this innovative, creative program in Tequesta,” says Justin Riney. “Mother Ocean’s mission is to create, inspire, and empower ocean advocates worldwide, and we believe working with children at an early age provides the most effective solution to long-term change.”

Led by Cynthia Trone, Director of Education at Lighthouse ArtCenter and volunteer Executive Director of Mother Ocean, the camps for ages 4 – 12 will welcome back Janeen Mason, the award-winning author and illustrator of children’s books, as a camp educator. Janeen has been integral to the Save the Indian River Lagoon movement, and is a passionate advocate for children, the arts and the environment. “I am so grateful to be able to develop this youth curriculum at the School of Art, and combine my passions,” says Cynthia. “The Lighthouse ArtCenter is fortunate to welcome back my friend and mentor, Janeen Mason, to teach ArtCamp and lend her expertise at developing our program.”

Featuring weekly presentations from local artists and nonprofits, ArtCampers will have an unprecedented opportunity to learn from some of the most passionate, talented and dynamic people in the area. Projects throughout each themed week will be inspired by local artists, environmental consciousness, fine art techniques, classic art and multi-media creations. ArtCampers will experience sculpting, ceramics, drawing, painting, collage and more, while learning about art techniques and art history. This year’s camps are inspired by the ocean, and by the concept of embracing what is loved through art.

From Paddle Boards to Easels: Meet Lighthouse ArtCenter’s New Art School Director Cynthia Trone

Cynthia Trone is a familiar face at the Lighthouse ArtCenter and the surrounding region.  She is well known for her creative environmental activism.  The Rickie Report met with Cynthia, the new Director of the Lighthouse ArtCenter’s School of Art. Here, she talks about how she transitioned from paddle boards to easels and about her goals for the School of Art.

The Lighthouse ArtCenter has named Cynthia Trone director of its School of Art.  “New leadership means new opportunities to grow,” said Katie Deits, Executive Director of the Tequesta museum and art school, currently celebrating its 50th anniversary. Cynthia joined the staff of the Lighthouse ArtCenter in April, 2013, as Executive Assistant to Katie Deits. 

 

 

TRR: Please tell us about your background

CT:

 

I graduated from Colby College with a Bachelor of Arts in English Literature.  I’m a Jersey girl who was raised with Manhattan in her backyard.  Then I spent my 20′s and early 30′s on the coast of Maine. I raised my three children in Burlington, Vt., and moved to Tequesta in 2005.  I am an artist who loves photography and  writing. 

 

 

Jupiter Pointe Paddle Board

TRR:  Your previous experiences with environmental activism include creating platforms as educational elements for all ages.

CT:

I managed Jupiter Outdoor Center and Jupiter Pointe Paddling for six years and taught thousands of people the simple pleasure of “the glide”.  Before paddle boarding became popular, I was helping lead ecotours and teaching children and adults yoga on paddle boards!

I am the Operations Director of Mother Ocean and volunteer Project Lead for Expedition Florida 500, a statewide conservation effort.   I grew up inspired by the sea, have a deep love of the outdoors and feel community is important.  The Mother Ocean project has been a great opportunity to bring non-profits and communities together on a State level.  It is exciting to be part of this movement, as Justin Riney brings awareness of the importance of our waterways to all parts of Florida!

TRR: How does that translate to the arts?

CT:

It was thrilling to be part of the recent Arts & Conservation Summit held in Vero Beach, FL this past January.  What a phenomenal opportunity to show how using the arts to express and embrace nature, we can protect what we love!  This is a collaboration to make the world a better place and to teach future generations!

TRR:  Which brings us to your role at the Lighthouse ArtCenter

CT:

 

Lighthouse ArtCenter is a place that is nurturing…a safe place to try new things…to breath in the creative air and to connect with the community.   The School of Art offers eight-week sessions as well as one, two, or three-day workshops.  They are the perfect occasion to try a new medium without making an 8 week commitment.

The School encompasses classes and workshops for young children, teens and adults.  There are day and evening offerings, where you can explore painting with acrylic, oil or watercolor.  You can learn new photography techniques or create decorative/functional items with fused glass. Learn how to create your own jewelry pieces or gain skills in the newest trend such a encaustic painting ( using wax and collage techniques).  We have the largest kiln facility in the area, with 10 pottery wheels and 6 kilns, so ceramics is a big interest here.

Katie Diets shares, “ Over the past year, Ms. Trone has proven her leadership abilities, first as executive assistant and now as director of the school. She also will oversee the ArtCenter’s summer camp programs.  Ms. Trone is responsible for management of the Center’s marketing, community outreach, as well as donor development, grants management and fundraising.It’s something that comes naturally for her.  We look forward to Cynthia guiding some of our relationships with other local organizations by integrating environmental themes in the art projects our students create.”

TRR:  You have an exceptional faculty.  How does an artist approach LAC to be included?

CT:

 

 

I celebrate our faculty as well as our supportive Board. Our goal is to forge connections between the community, our exhibits, receptions and classes. Interested artists should email me and send an overview of jpegs of their work.  We are always recruiting.  Include your: medium, availability (day, evening, weekend), length of lessons ( 8 week class or 1,2,3 day workshop), preferred ages of students (young children, youth, adult), a brief resume and some references.  

 

 

Art Camp

Our new Session begins April 28 for 6 weeks, followed by a 10 week Summer Session starting June 9th.  There are limited classes during the day in the summer due to summer camp activities from 9 am – 3 pm, but we still have evening and weekend sessions. We’re already planning our Early Fall Session which begins September 8th.

 

“I invite everyone to stop by the School of Art, see what we do, then enroll in a class,” Ms. Trone said.   The School of Art is around the corner from the museum, at 95 Seabrook Road, Tequesta. Call (561) 748-8737
