Susan Schanerman’s SOLO “heART” Exhibition At Spanish River Library In Boca Raton Radiates Color And Creativity

For Susan Schanerman, the idea of “heARTmatters: There’s ART in Every heART” is basic to her very core.  Her new SOLO Exhibition at the Spanish River Library in Boca Raton brings pops of color and inspires the creativity she believes resides in every one of us.  The Exhibit is free and open to the public, running now through September 9th.  The Rickie Report shares the details and some sneak peeks.

“Oodles of Doodles” by Susan Schanerman

 

 

 

Don’t miss the Solo exhibition featuring the artistic accomplishments of 70 year old Susan Schanerman. An artist and writer who has overcome many obstacles in her life stemming from a paralyzing case of polio at age 7, Susan considers herself “a very late bloomer.” She didn’t pick up her first paint brush until 1995 . . . and then it took another 20 years to “put herself and her work out there.”

 

“Rainbow Woods” by Susan Schanerman

 

 

Susan’s work, or “heART”, as she likes to call it, is playful, whimsical, uplifting, inspiring and FUN. She uses vibrant color and the child-like tone speaks for the child within us all . . . the child who still knows freedom, innocence and joy . . . “I can only hope that my “heART” can add just a little bit of light and joy to a very dark world.”

 

“Flower Extravaganza” by Susan Schanerman

 

 

Susan’s “heART” is now her passion. She believes there is creativity in us all. It’s our very nature and acts as a means of communication, heart to heart, soul to soul. In 2004, Susan came up with the idea of “heARTmatters: There’s ART in Every heART”.   She has now expanded on that idea . . . and so the title of this show . . . “heARTmatters: It’s Never Too Late to Create. “There is more and more evidence supporting the idea that any kind of art-making is actually good for your health!” Schanerman says.

 

“The Glory Of Creation” by Susan Schanerman

 

This will be Susan’s second Solo Exhibition of her heART. Her first Solo Show was hosted by VSA Palm Beach County.   It is her deepest desire that her work “Touches Your Heart, Stirs Your Soul and Puts a Smile on Your Face!!”

Artist and Art Instructor, Ana Noble

 

Ana was born and raised in San Juan, Puerto Rico. At the age of 14 she started painting under Professor Fran Cervoni. Her early area of concentration was in still life oil painting. She later expanded her interest towards watercolors and acrylics.

 

“Street Scene From Puerto Rico” by Ana Noble

 

 

Her painting career accelerated when she continued her studies under the noted Spanish watercolorist and longtime resident of Puerto Rico, Guillermo Sureda. His exquisite style has had a great influence on her watercolor subject matter.   Ana Noble’s specialties include typical scenes of Puerto Rico, especially Old San Juan. 

 

 

 

“Poinciana” by Ana Noble

 

 

 

Her original paintings and her reproductions are in great demand for gifts and personal enjoyment because they recapture fond remembrances of beautiful Puerto Rico.  Ana shares her passion, skill, and vast experience with students at the LWAL where she teaches Friday afternoons. Ana and her husband of 54 years, Peter Noble, are residents of Greenacres. They have three children and three grandchildren.

Iain Stewart

Iain Stewart by Lois Perdue

Iain Stewart shares, “Painting my reality is with lines and light.”  It is not only about how the light influences his paintings, but to the award-winning watercolor artist and architectural illustrator, it’s about the lines, too.  Born in Glasgow, Scotland and raised in North Carolina and later, Alabama since the age of six, Stewart holds numerous international awards, is a signature member of the National and American Watercolor Societies and holds a degree in architecture.  For the first time, Stewart, has been invited to be one of three artists who will be teaching a four-day workshop at this year’s Florida Watercolor Society (FWS) Convention & Trade Show. “I get a great deal of satisfaction teaching workshops,” he said. “I can communicate my ideas both vocally and visually in a manner that will, hopefully, remain with the artists and be repeatable by them.”

 

“6th Street Train” by Iain Stewart

 

Now 46-years-old, Stewart was fortunate to have had a head start in the field of art. He grew up familiar with renderings and architectural drawings as his father, Muir Stewart, was a Professor of Architecture at Auburn University until he retired in 1987. In addition, the senior Stewart has been a watercolorist his entire life and still continues an active career as an architectural illustrator and artist.  “There is friendly competition between us,” said Stewart.  Stewart, who will also hold one-on-one critiques during the convention weekend, said he learned some valuable lessons about critiquing art by example.

 

“My father has an uncanny ability to give scathing critiques, but they are correct,” he said. “What I do then is, if it’s fixable, I fix it, or I just start all over again” he said. “We now critique each others’ work which can become quite interesting at times.”  Stewart says, however, his own critiques are gently delivered, also productive and intended to help students learn.  “For myself, I like to use my ruined efforts to start the ‘barbeque’,” he said. “Successful paintings teach us very little. It’s the hand to the hot stove, the sting of the bee–the ruined painting that makes you look inward and seek out where you went wrong. I ask my students to create a written step-by-step process for a ruined painting—to go back and do a plan, find a point of reference of where and why they did it. Then their task is to go back and rework it and try to avoid making the same mistake twice.”

 

“Gothenburg” by Iain Stewart

 

Stewart, who has been published numerous times, most recently in Plein Air Magazine, (April/ May Issue) teaches both studio and plein air workshops on a regular basis throughout the United States and Europe. Other publications in which Stewart has been featured include Watercolor Artist, The Art of Watercolour, Southern Living, Cottage Living, Better Homes & Gardens, The Robb Report and the French publication Pratique des Arts. He also has a three-DVD set available through northlightshop.com.  Always a watercolorist, Stewart enjoys the process of protecting light from the beginning. He admits his real struggle is to capture the initial vision.  “You have to see the works’ glow from the start,” he said.  Stewart added that he is most often motivated by capturing a definitive lighting condition and how it influences shape and value rather than faithfully representing the subject as witnessed. “The lion’s share of my work is accomplished alla prima,” said Stewart. “Watercolor is uniquely suited for the task of capturing light and must be preserved from the first brush strokes and protected throughout the painting process.”

 

 

Watercolor by Iain Stewart

Stewart maintains a studio in Opelika, Alabama for his duo career as a fine art watercolorist alongside his 20-year career as an architectural illustrator with an international clientele. Stewart says he is hired to create scenes that showcase the designer’s intentions in the best way possible. Clients have ranged from the Georgia State Capital to the Dublin Zoo. Once a year he heads to his alma mater, Auburn University, where he is an adjunct professor, to teach a course called “Architecture in Watercolor”.  “The course I teach is reviving and combining the use of watercolor presentation in the age of computer- dominated presentation techniques,” Stewart said.

 

Stewart does agree that his style has changed over the years and says it was gradual.  “I moved away from the tightness of my rendering style to a more expressive way of painting”, he said. “My work changes yearly and I noticed this when I began to focus more on my sketchbooks to bring the liveliness I experience when working in them to my studio work. It is less about accuracy and more about the feeling of being in a certain place. I have moved in a more painterly direction and continue to embrace the changes when they come. If I painted the same way year after year my personal work would become dull very quickly to me. In architectural illustration it’s all about the line work. When I paint for myself I never let a line tell me where to put my brush.”

 

 

“North Queens Ferry” by Iain Stewart

 

Stewart says he ruins more paintings when working on something new as his style changes but there is a benefit in that.  “That means I am on to something new and to follow it as far as it will take me. You would be surprised at how many people think that once you begin receiving awards, jurying, and getting into major publications that you somehow stop creating works that are not up to your idea of what constitutes a good painting,” he said.  To achieve the uniquely dramatic, sometimes moody strokes in his award-winning paintings, Stewart says he often uses imagined atmospheric and lighting conditions in his work and paints from both life and imagination.  “Watercolors are not only a translation of what I see, but more importantly, an expression of how I choose to view the world,” he shares.  As for his workshop teaching style, he believes that some students struggle, but Stewart takes delight in this.  “It is those times when they see the larger picture and have one of those “ah ha moments” and not just see the technical side of the demonstration,” he said.  “A light comes into their eyes and smiles appear on their faces and that is priceless to me,” he said. “It’s the moment of understanding and it’s a wonderful thing to see and be part of.”

“Exhibitors come from all over the United States as well as Europe,” said Rita Szopinski, president of FWS. “It’s a very popular event and a chance for the experienced artist as well as the beginner artist to be introduced to new and exciting products being promoted by the various vendors.”  And, the “price is right” at FWS’s trade show.  “Vendors offer “discounted” pricing to attendees so it is a great opportunity to stock up on art materials,” said Szopinski. “As you get excited about the demos and the products the workshop instructors are using, you can run to the trade show and purchase many of the items from one of the many booths. As you wander through the booths you will find a demo here and there as an added bonus. Visit the FWS website for updates on the trade show and demos.”   Many product experts will be introducing new products, holding demonstrations and answering artists’ questions throughout the weekend of Florida Watercolor Society’s 46th annual state convention.
