Another feature in the exhibit is on loan from the grandson of Solomon R. Guggenheim, a commissioned art that has unlimited sentimental value, a gift from the Guggenheim children. It is a tile-topped coffee table painted with an image of the family’s famous museum in New York City. Further, as a tribute to the work in the collection of the Jupiter Island Arts Council, the Lighthouse ArtCenter will exhibit original Highwaymen pieces as well as the celebrated Florida scenic oils from A. E. “Beanie” Backus and his great nephew, Kevin Hutchinson Hutchison. Selected pieces of the exhibited art will be available for purchase.

According to curator Janeen Mason, “We are honored by this opportunity to share the creative spirit of our gifted neighbors who enjoy homes just a stone’s throw from the Lighthouse ArtCenter. To see through the eyes of another, to recognize meaningful art, whether of great monetary value, collectible value, sentimental value, or simply curiosities that make you scratch your head in wonder… This is an experience you won’t want to miss.”

Nancy Politsch, Executive Director of the Lighthouse ArtCenter, says, “We hope all of Palm Beach and Martin counties will make time to visit the gallery while we have this inspiring collection of extraordinary art. Through their gracious philanthropic gesture, these families are sharing a look at their personal commitment to the humanities. Now more than ever it’s imperative we celebrate their support.”

“Purr maid” by Mia Lindberg

Over fifty years ago, Mia’s love of art was nurtured on her family farm in rural PA.  The abundance of red clay, fauna, flora, slate fences of rust and verde, earthen -colored lichen, and moss covered mountain sides created memories for her artist palette.  Although clay had always been one of her interests, her scholastic focus was  with horticulture and applied plant sciences.  It was her search for just the right pottery vessel to nurture one of her projects that lead her to the Ceramics Lab.  She says, “I realized that plants were just a road leading me back to my true passion…and I changed my major to Ceramics”!

 

Mia and students at classes

 

Mia tells The Rickie Report, “Art has the ability to capture the soul of all who dare to enter its doors. I have had the privilege of holding those doors wide open. The rich earthen colors, evocative textures and strong design concepts of vistas past, seduce me, I need only to follow. Freedom is my guide when traditional theologies are questioned and ethereal paths are chosen. Bridging the space between life and impermanence with both vessel and sculpture has been a wonder filled journey. My work represents the beam of light that beckons me to test all the boundaries; ‘Come in’, it whispers, ‘the road is long and the art of creation abounds’….”

 

“Beauty And the Eye of the Beholder” by Mia Lindberg

 

 Lindberg’s artistry has been exhibited Nationally in venues such as the Backus Gallery, Armory Art Center, Zafka Gallery,5th Biennial Invitational Fulcra (CA), Elliott Museum, Design Color Concepts (Ft. Lauderdale), Grandfather Mountain (NC), Stuart Cultural Art Center, Lighthouse ArtCenter and more invitational exhibits throughout the US.  Mia is the Founder of the Ceramics League of Martin County and a longstanding  member of the Cultural Arts Center of Martin County.  She has taught both in and out of local school districts as well as with prison populations.

 

Classes for all ages and all levels of experience are available

 

In 2012, Mia’s work was featured in a publication, “She’s Come Undone”, Lark Books, 500 Raku “Bold Explorations of Dynamic Ceramic Technique”.  Her work has been commissioned internationally and can be found as Art in Public Places in the Bahamas, Virgin Islands, England, Germany, and Italy.  Mia worked for 3 years in apprenticeship with world renown Dorothy Becken. In addition, Mia is  accomplished in metalsmithing, jewelry, fiber, glass and wood.

 

Workshops are available year long from both local and visiting artists.

 

 

 

Classes and studio time are available year round, whether advanced or novice, our motto is “Come Clay With Us”.  In mid-January, 2018 Clay Habit will participate in the Martin County Open Studio Tour in January.

 

In February, 2018, Clay Habit will take part in Empty Bowls. Mia shares, ” Our studio will donate over 150 hand made and glazed bowls, PLUS Silent auction pieces. The public is welcome to take part in the glazing process. Call for more info and glazing dates”!

 

 

A special breast cancer fundraiser in March, 2018 will bring the Gallery’s annual Breast Cancer Benefit, “Plates For Pink” – Mia’s brain child. 100% of all funds will be donated to Friends in Pink. Patrons can buy a handmade plate, $20 and eat till their hearts content on wonderful foods of all varieties.

Maria Paz shares one of her favorite quotes with The Rickie Report, ” True art is not a gimmick, it is a creative process where what is created evokes an emotion …. if I can do that through my work, I would have done my job”.  Born in Manila, Philippines, Maria came to Boston, MA at age 8. At age 11, Maria took “Perspective Architectural Drawing” where “outdoor field work” was involved at The Boston Museum of Fine Arts every Saturday morning. At age 14, she studied Acrylic & Oil Painting during the summer months at Massachusetts College of Art(MASSART). Cable vision hired Maria to design & build their backdrop while she was still a high school student!

Wanting to be an Art Major, Maria began building her portfolio in high school & was awarded scholarships, including the Bergfors Rice Award.  With offers from Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, Rhode Island School of Design (RISD), and Parsons NY, Maria chose the School of Visual Arts (SVA) in New York to study Fine Arts as it had many “working artists” as professors.

Maria also lived in Paris, France for 6 months and studied Fine Art at Parsons in Paris. Her “Reclining Nude” was exhibited at a Paris gallery.  Upon returning to NY & living in Manhattan, Maria worked while studying nude figurative drawing at The Arts Student’s League.  She was often commissioned to paint portraits, which can be found in numerous private collections internationally.
