Portrait Of Old Floresta Plein Air Paintings Featured At Boca Raton Museum Of Art School. Opening Reception April 6

The Boca Raton Museum Art School is hosting an exhibit of painting by the Plein Air Palm Beach artists group. The exhibit opens on Friday, April 6, with a reception to meet the artists. The paintings on exhibit were each painted on site in the historic Old Floresta neighborhood behind the Art School. Old Floresta was created in the 1920’s by Addison Mizner. The lush vegetation and original Mizner houses present a picturesque view of old Florida. Plein Air Palm Beach is an active artists group that organizes painting meet ups and exhibits throughout Palm Beach County.  This exhibit will be available for one week only, until April 12, 2018.  The Rickie Report shares the details and some sneak peeks.  New, Spring classes at the Art School start April 16, 2018.

 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.
