Public Invited To Unveiling Of Newly Commissioned Artwork By Carol Kepp At Bridge Road Fine Arts In Hobe Sound Friday, August 19

The public is invited to the unveiling of a commissioned artwork, “Country Road” by Carol Kepp at Bridge Road Fine Arts in Hobe Sound on Friday, August 19, 2022.  In addition, Carol’s  “Cannon In the Woods” which represented the State of Florida and hung in the US Capital Rotunda during the 1976 Bicentennial celebration will be on view.  The Rickie Report shares the details and some sneak peeks not only of these two works but some other surprises from Carol’s artistic legacy.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

FRIDAY     AUGUST 19, 2022

 

 

4  –  7  PM

 

Bridge Road Fine Arts

8887 Bridge Road   Hobe Sound, FL 33455

 

 

Carol Kepp

 

Gallerist and fine artist Ed Douglas is eager to celebrate all of the artists at Bridge Road Fine Arts.  On Friday, August 19, the spotlight will be on Carol Kepp, whose commissioned artwork “Country Home” will have a featured presence in the home of Mr. and Mrs. Tolve.  This will be the final time this painting will be seen in a public setting!

 

 

Carol tells The Rickie Report, “Mr. Tolve remembered me from when we both worked at Northrop Grumman.  He was looking for an artist to commission a painting for their home, saw my FaceBook post about my classes and contacted me after all of these years! They wanted a country scene because their home is colonial. Carol created three sketches and the couple ended up choosing elements from each sketch to make into one bucolic scene.

 

“Country Road” by Carol Kepp

 

 

 

 

Carol’s love for art began in her early childhood, as she painted a mural with a neighbor who taught Carol the basics and continually encouraged Carol to pursue the arts. Through her teens, she would paint Christmas designs for her neighbors on their front doors or inside on mirrors over a fireplace.  Carol learned to play piano and gave her first concert when she was 16.  At that time, her teacher told Carol “You’ll have to choose between music or art because they both require a lot of time.”  Carol chose art and attended the Cleveland Institute of Art and later worked in advertising for multiple companies.

 

 

 

Carol shares, ” In 1969 I moved to Melbourne, FL and worked for Harris in their art department. I prepared art for slide presentations. Back then everything was done by hand from layouts to paste-ups, to typing galleys. After she moved to Port St. Lucie, I started teaching oil painting to adults from Vero Beach to Hobe Sound through Martin County High School’s adult education. I love helping my students create wonderful paintings and some have won awards. They are so pleased when that happens – and I just love seeing their smiles.”  Carol reminisced about how Ted Goerschner, a renowned artist, moved into her neighborhood. Carol took a workshop with him and through the years, he taught her how to see color in new ways, bringing her artistry to a new level. He was such an inspiration and so giving of his talent.  He was truly a mentor, which she tries to be with her own students.

 

 

 

 

Carol Kepp’s Bicentennial painting, “Cannon in the Woods” which hung in the US Capital Rotunda.

 

 

 

In 1976 Carol entered a competition at the Elliott Museum where the winning piece would be sent to Washington,D.C. to be included in the Bicentennial celebration.  Carol’s painting was selected to represent the State of Florida and hung in the US Capital Rotunda during the 1976 Bicentennial celebration.

 

 

 

Carol teaches at the Artists Nook in Stuart, FL and at the Hobe Sound Fine Art League. She has been an early and active member of the Martin Artisan Guild and participated in the annual Open Studio Tour.  Carol received the Martin Arts Council Leadership Award, having on the ArtFest and Gallery committees. She was honored to be part of a 6 artist group exhibit by the Martin Arts Council. Carol volunteers to paint for Helping People Succeed  as well.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The most poignant work Carol has created can be seen in numerous publicity articles from TC Palm, when she graciously donated her time and artistry to enhance the setting of St. Martin de Porress Catholic Church in Jensen Beach, FL.  In 2006, she began painting 8 muralist oil in honor of her husband and two sons. Each panel was 10′ x 9.5 ‘ and took her about two years to paint.  She continued painting 5 more murals and completed the project in 2011.  She, with the inclusion of her students, painted a 22′ x 12’ mural in acrylic for the back wall of the church hall.

Art Synergy Kicks Off Annual Backpack and Art Supply Drive In Palm Beach County

Art Synergy kicks off its annual drive for backpacks, art and school supplies and makes it easier than ever to participate, even if you don’t live nearby!  The Rickie Report shares the details of drop off spots and endorses the ease of having items shipped to The Box Gallery, headquarters for this drive and Art Synergy. The Drive begins this weekend, July 25 and ends August 6, 2022.
Will you help us reach our 1,000 backpack goal?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Art Synergy, Inc, a 501 (c) 3, has committed to collecting 1000 backpacks for Palm Beach County children returning to school this August.

 

 

“Many families in Palm Beach County have hit very hard and quite possibly suffered the greatest economic hit in the last few years.” says, Art Synergy founder and CEO, Rolando Chang Barrero, “That’s why we are calling for everyone to respond to our friends and families here in Palm Beach County immediately.”  Among the organizations that will co-sponsor this years drive are The YWCA of Palm County, The Latin Quarter, and MoviesMakingADifference. 

 

Donated Backpacks and Art Supplies

 

 

Rolando goes on to explain, “The campaign, designed for all students serves two purposes: raise awareness of the poverty and challenges that our PBC families have suffered during the on-going pandemic and housing crisis. We feel that together we can alleviate some of the costs in preparing our  children for the upcoming school year by providing backpacks, art supplies and basic school supplies for children”.
