Last Thursdays at Brewhouse are True Celebrations!

The Brewhouse Gallery opened it’s doors in Lake Park mid-May for a “soft opening”.  The crowds have been non-stop ever since!  Fragrant coffees/ teas during the day and handcrafted beers/wine in the evenings are not the only draw (no pun intended).  This is an art gallery, a spot to meet a friend, play a board game, get into the Trivia mania or have a big laugh during the Comedy nights.  Bring your own food or take advantage of the food trucks that park nearby.  The Rickie Report is happy to report that the Brewhouse Gallery is ready for it’s Opening Reception today!  There will be a special raffle, meet-the-artists and complimentary Hors d’oeuvres.  See you there 6-8 pm!

Thursday, June 26th will be the first artist opening (aside from the soft opening last month) of the Brewhouse Gallery in Lake Park.  It is hard to believe the dream of AJ Brockman and his business partner, Bobby Hodson hasn’t always been part of our lives!

AJ tells The Rickie Report, “Join us in celebrating all of our resident artists on the last Thursday of each month! There will be complimentary Hors d’oeuvres and wine tasting. This night is completely devoted to our local artists with a meet and greet, creative talks and much more!”

In addition, everyone who purchases a piece of art (no price minimum) will receive a raffle ticket for a $50. gift Certificate to The Brewhouse Gallery.  AJ and Bobby believe in a “win-win-win”: the public enjoys themselves, the artists gain new patrons and the Brewhouse brings home the true meaning of “community”.

 

The partners add, “Complete with Wi-Fi, and a friendly vibe, the Brewhouse Gallery is your place to relax, socialize, and get somethin’ brewin!”

Tracy tells The Rickie Report, “As my career in the visual arts unfolds, I find myself drawn to diverse projects in clay that afford me an opportunity for creative learning.  I continue to grow as an artist and as a human, as I research concepts and ideas to be translated  into a visual format.”

Tracy goes on to say, “The challenge for me comes in creating a piece that will have sustainability in materials, emotional substance and will, in the end, celebrate our humanness.”

Boca Museum Of Art Offers Summer Courses for Children, Teens, Adults

The Boca Museum – Art School is an integral part of the cultural campus comprised of the Boca Museum in Mizner Park, The Artists’ Guild Gallery located in Delray, and the Art School on West Palmetto Park Road.  Each in their own way and in overlapping ways these sites enrich the cultural life and strengthen the arts community of Palm Beach County.  The Rickie Report is pleased to share information about Summer Classes, which begin at the end of June.  We know you will find the right class and instructor for your needs.

 

 

 

BOCAMUSEUM2logo

 

 

Summer art classes start June 30th

 

 

The Art School offers classes and special workshops for children, teens and adults in ceramics, drawing, jewelry, painting, photography and sculpture.  Classes attract beginners to experienced artists. The school provides well equipped studios, an outstanding faculty as well as a gallery for students to exhibit their work.

 

 

 

BocaMuseumIMG_5419

 

 

This summer there is a range of art classes for adult and teen classes beginning June 30th and a second session starting July 28. During the fall and winter months studio art courses are often filled to capacity.  The summer is a great time to take a class because there is more elbow room in the studios.  The summer’s short sessions run for 4 weeks and are an ideal length for experienced artists to freshen up their skills or try a new medium.  And for beginners the summer is a great way to explore their creative side within a short time commitment.

 

Boca Museumeydi's class

 

 

Day and evening courses include: Figure Drawing on Monday evenings, taught by the classically trained team of Suzanne Scherer and Pavel Ouporov and “Expressive Figure Drawing’ with Barbara Wasserman on Monday afternoons.
