Fine artist, Caryl Pomales

Caryl Pomales tells The Rickie Report, “There is so much beauty, stillness, and gratitude to be found in the moments of serenity at my easel. When life is hectic, I find my peace while painting. Creating a work of art and sharing it with my friends and followers fills my life and my soul with calm and joy”.

 

 

“River Birch” by Caryl Pomales

 

 

 

She goes on, “Spreading these positive feelings with others is incredibly rewarding, as I’m able to share the serenity I find with others. Whether teaching online or in person, I find immense fulfillment in getting to know fellow artists and creatives as they embark on a journey to improve their skills and contribute to their daily joy”.

 

” Inspired by Wells” by Caryl Pomales

 

 

 

 

Caryl explains, “Painting is a form of meditation for me. Like the water in a lake, when your mind is calm, you can see the depths below; however, when your mind is disturbed, it is easy to get caught up in the waves. Brushstroke by brushstroke, I calm the waters in the lake of my mind to find peace and serenity”.

 

 

 

“Anticipating November” by Caryl Pomales

 

 

 

 

We hope you’ll join Caryl on a journey of joy through painting, whether by subscribing to her “Artsy Tips & Insights,” brightening your home with her 2019 calendar (complete with vibrant paintings and inspirational quotes), signing up for a workshop, or by commissioning an expressively painted animal portrait of one of your favorite pets.  She says, “I hope my recent paintings inspired by Autumn provide you peace as well”!

The Clark Hulings Fund For Visual Artists Announces Art-Business Conference In Fort Lauderdale, February 1-2

The Clark Hulings Fund for Visual Artists (CHF) is excited to announce its Art-Business Conference in Fort Lauderdale, an event that seeks to inspire visual artists to “Conquer the Changing Marketplace.” This weekend-long business-development workshop will give professional working artists the chance to take a deep dive into the business side of their art careers. Scheduled for February 1 and 2, 2019, the event is funded in part by the Broward County Board of County Commissioners through the Broward Cultural Council. The two-day conference is co-sponsored by ArtServe, an active incubator for Broward County’s growing art community. The Rickie Report shares the details and urges you to sign up now for the cost-saving Early Bird (ends Nov. 15). In addition, we offer a $50 discount code for our readers! We look forward to seeing you there! This is open to all visual artists.

 

 

 

The event manifests CHF’s assertion that “Art is a business and artists should run it.” With the art market undergoing rapid and significant change—not only with regard to technology but also HOW art is marketed, bought, and sold—artists need to reclaim their rightful position at the center of the industry. The Art-Business Conference will help them to take charge of their careers, captivate their audience, maximize the extraordinary professional advantages they already possess and sell their art effectively and profitably.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Topics will include building an action plan, creating a brand story, rocking their portfolio, multiplying revenue streams, pricing for profit, selling art online effectively, building a strong support team, squashing resistance, sales strategies, and much more. All sessions are interactive, allowing artists to work together and engage conference leaders with their specific business questions.

 

Elizabeth Hulings

 

 

The program will be led by Elizabeth Hulings, CHF director and co-founder; Carolyn Edlund, CHF sales director, and events manager; and Daniel DiGriz, CHF education director. “South Florida has emerged as an important art hub,” says Hulings. “We are thrilled to be delivering tangible business skills and training in this exciting market.” Edlund, CHF sales director, and events manager; and Daniel DiGriz, CHF education director. “South Florida has emerged as an important art hub,” says Hulings. 

 

Carolyn Edlund

 

 

The event fee is $395, with CHF is offering an extra early-bird price of $295, until November 15, and an early-bird price of $345 until January 1, 2019, when the regular price of $395 starts. Tickets are available here. In addition to conference admission, ticket holders will receive one year of “Colleague”-level access to CHF’s Business Accelerator Portal, a comprehensive online learning resource for working artists.

Boca Raton Fine Art Shows™ Shares their Passion For Fine Art And Fine Craft At Mizner Amphitheater November 3 & 4

Renowned organizer Hot Works, LLC is bringing two Fine Art and Fine Craft shows to Boca Raton this season, November 3 & 4 at Mizner Park Amphitheater and January 26 & 27, 2019 in Sanborn Square Park, N.E. 1st Avenue and E. Boca Raton Road in downtown Boca. One of the artists whose work will be prominently featured is Marvin ‘Murf’ Murphy of Weston. The Rickie Report shares the details and some sneak peeks!

Boca Raton Fine Art Shows

Your Art. Our Passion.

 

 New Fall Show!

 

 

November 3 & 4, 2018 

 

10 am – 5 pm Each day

590 Plaza Real         Boca Raton, FL 33432 

 

 

 

 

 

 

For more than three decades, Murphy has been employing a keen sense of color and unique feel for design and form to create dynamic, multi-dimensional geometric abstract paintings that have earned him recognition on an international scale. Murf equates his compositions with cartography. But he’s not interested in mapping out shorelines, islands, continents or seas. He is busy charting the universe and the unifying threads that run through all of nature.

 

Award of Excellence Goes to Murf Murphy

 

Toward that end, he has developed a language of colors, lines and geometric forms. But there’s an architectural quality to his abstract works. Some of that inheres in his use of thick layers and impasto applied with brushes, palette and even putty knives. But he confers three-dimensionality on many of his works by combining colored acrylic films with glass that he sets about half an inch from the painted surface of his underlying canvas.

 

 

 

 

 

When he was just starting out, Murf had a day job tinting car windows. He quickly discovered that he could piece together scenes on windows, sliding glass doors and storefronts from these colored films in much the same way that Henri Matisse used scissors and colored paper to fashion his renowned posters and other cutouts during the final chapter of his storied career.  “At some point, I began framing them and taking them to art shows and festivals,” Murf recounts. “The process evolved from there.”

 

“Fire and Ice” by Murf Murphy

 

 

Today, he affixes his colored film cutouts to the underside of a plate of clear glass in patterns that augment or contrast with the geometric patterns in the composition beneath the glass. As the beam of a gallery spotlight passes through the glass and film cutouts, it is focused, splintered and refracted to create mesmerizing highlights and shadows on the textured surface of the canvas. Natural, organic light will produce the same effect, although in a more diffuse, subtle manner.

 

 

 

 

 

The resulting three-dimensional, tactile quality is a new wrinkle in the 100-year history of the abstract art movement. But there’s more to Murphy’s abstractionism than texture and dimensionality. He also evokes a preoccupation with the building blocks of the natural world and cosmology: light, color and geometrical shapes, particularly rectangles and squares. “Silver Square”, “Yellow Light”, “Green Light”, “Across the Sky”, “New Horizons”, “Golden Moon”  and “Color Source” are the names of just a few of his contemporary constructs. These cues aside, Murf leaves it to his viewers to intuit whether the interplay of light, color, shape and shadow reflect cosmic truths or some cogent commentary on the human condition in modern society denoted, as it is, by the repudiation of fact and science, environmental damage, and impending climatological cataclysm.

 

“Color Dance” by Murf Murphy

 

 

 

 

Over the years, Murf has converted some of his more popular compositions into lithographs. Several have been popularized as art show posters and album and magazine covers – including Hot Works award-winning 16th Orchard Lake Fine Art Show held in West Bloomfield, Michigan this past July. A number can be found in the collections of famous jazz musicians and other public figures, including Dave Sanborn, Richard Elliot, Kenny Rankin, Dave Koz and President Bill Clinton.

 

 

 

He has also shared the limelight at environmental, educational and social events with the likes of Pamela Anderson, Bob Barker, Ivana Trump, and former Vice President and Nobel Peace Prize winner Al Gore.  In 2010, Murf presented his “Earth Island” lithograph to the newly installed Secretary General of the United Nations, Ban Ki-Moon. That work was also featured on the PBS “Jim Brickman Beautiful World” special.

While the fall show is new this season, the winter Boca Raton Fine Art Show has been voted among the top 100 art shows in America three years running.

Mallo Bisset, Winner of  mARTies Award 2018

The mARTies were created by the Arts Council of Martin County to celebrate and applaud the creative people who enrich our community. Through celebration and scholarship, the mARTies provide a venue where we gather, as a community, to applaud the artists who enrich our lives through their talents, and those who make the arts a reality through leadership and philanthropy.  Well deserved, Mallo!  Congratulations!

 

 

“Thank YOU!”

 

 

We couldn’t have done it without you.
You’re Invited to help us celebrate an amazing 30 years in business!

 

 

“Pony Express” by Mallo Bisset

 

 

The   Luscious   Knife   Paintings   of:

 

 

Mallo Bisset might have taken the long road to living her dream, but once she sets her mind on something, there’s nothing stopping her!  As a little girl living on the Åland Islands in the Finnish archipelago, she wasn’t too fond of school, and told everyone “I am going to be an artist when I grow up”.  Life got in the way for a while, but after years of hard work and building a successful business, it wasn’t until 2007 with encouragement from her husband and daughter that Mallo finally took the time to do what she had always dreamed of doing.  It started with a weekly drawing class at the local Adult Education program.  After just two semesters her teacher, Helen Terry, told her she could make money drawing pet portraits.  

 

 

“Rescue Me” by Mallo Bisset

 

Mallo’s earliest work combined her love of animals with her love for the arts.  Having tried drawing, pastels, and watercolors, it was time for oils!  She signed up for classes at a studio which was located across the street from her own business, so she could be close to work, yet make it easy to get to class every week. This is where her love affair with oils and the palette knife began.  Under the tutelage of Georgia Abood at Alizarin Crimson, she has been working on her craft and has made remarkable progress in such a short time. Having grown up on an island, and living in Florida for 30 years, with a second home in the Bahamas, it’s not a surprise that Mallo Bisset’s work often features the water and always celebrates the beauty of nature.   As it turns out, that little girl in Finland really did grow up to be an artist! 

 

 

Floral Painting by Mallo Bisset

 

Mallo tells The Rickie Report, “Specializing in the palette knife, my paintings are often highly textured and almost always full of color! In order to truly appreciate my art I recommend you come by Red Barn Furniture/Gallery to see my latest works ‘in real life’.  A photo can rarely do it justice”.  She is correct!  Mallo’s painting styles are so varied and wonder-filled, you will be amazed!  We also appreciate how she frames her pieces, which are unique to each painting.  

 

“Sisters” by Mallo Bisset

 

 

She says, “My artwork celebrates the things that make me happy.  While my subject matter does vary, I am greatly influenced by my love of color, animals, and nature.  I have always lived close to the sea, so water and the color blue seem to be a part of me and often make it onto my canvas. When I get an idea for a painting and I can’t stop thinking about it, I know it’s time to get to work.  Often it’s these obsessive moments that lead to the best work.  The most rewarding feeling is seeing a smile on the face of someone viewing my work and nothing compares to the satisfaction of having someone bring home a piece of my work. Hopefully, my artwork makes you happy too”!

Because Mallo and Alex own the shop/gallery where they display and sell their artworks, prices reflect not having to pay a commission to show their paintings and ceramics.  Mallo’s award winning images can also be purchased as prints, greeting cards or giclees. Mallo is very involved in the Martin County arts community, as well as local animal shelters. She has recently been nominated for the coveted “mArties” Award.

Sampling of Pottery created by Alex Murray

 

Alex Murray tells The Rickie Report, “For many years, I drove past a pottery studio near a friend’s house and I always wondered what went on inside.  I often talked about stopping by and signing up for a class.  Yet, somehow it never happened, until my 35th birthday when that friend gave me a gift certificate to enroll in a class.  Little did I know that I would instantly get hooked.  From that first class, I was enthralled and I spent many, many hours hanging out at the studio.  It became like a second home for a couple years and I learned so much in those early years from my mentor, JW Shell and my friends at the studio”. 

 

Pottery Sample by Alex Murray

 

 

Alex continues, “After learning the basics of hand building, I finally graduated to the wheel.  Who knew that I could love this craft even more. Since learning to throw I seldom (basically NEVER) handbuilt anything again. There is something magical that happens when I throw.  I can’t describe it, but if you have the same love for the wheel as I do, you would understand what I mean.  I think if I only ever threw bowls for the rest of my life, I might be okay with that.  Sadly JW retired after just a few years and later on passed away.  I will always remember his lessons and how he created such a wonderful place for potters to learn.  I have since belonged to another group studio in that same location and I can say that it is a special thing to be surrounded by others that love the same craft as you do.  While we all had different styles there was always something to learn from those around you.  I do miss those group studio days sometimes”!

 

Bowls by Alex Murray Waiting to be fired

 

 

“These days I have a studio at my home and I try to spend as much time as I can working on my craft- it is one of the things I love to do the most.  I have often described getting caught up in the work as similar to therapy (but cheaper) for the feeling it instills in me when I’m in my zone.  It is hard these days to spend as much time as I’d like to working in the studio.  Running a business (my mother and I own and operate a casual and patio furniture store) and just living life with my husband and his two teenage children takes up most of my time.  But it’s comforting to know that the studio is always there, ready and waiting when I can carve out precious time in my schedule for my creative work”, Alex shares.

 

Hand made cup by Alex Murray

 

 

From the beginning, Alex has always focused on making functional pottery with very clean designs.  “I like to keep a simple aesthetic in my designs.  I love the idea that someone would use one of my bowls for their daily meals or a mug for their morning cup of coffee. Pottery has been around since the beginning of time, and maybe it’s the feeling of making something useful (from such a basic raw good such as clay) that gives me such a feeling of accomplishment”.
