Vicki Siegel in her studio

 

 

Vicki Siegel is a full time working artist who exhibits extensively. Her work can be found in private collections.  She has a BFA from the University of Illinois and studied MFA coursework at Tyler School of Art, Rome. Siegel is a Golden Artist Educator.  Vicki Siegel’s work combines painting and photography together.  She creates images that unite her fascination with the world around her with the physicality of paint. The photographers gaze allows her to observe and archive reality, while the paint flows from her subconscious to her brush in marks that are uniquely her own. Siegel says, “In my work I ask the viewer to engage by comparing what is photographic and what is paint, but also what is personal and what is universal”.

Art Lovers And Artists Wanted At Delray Art League’s New Home At Heart Of Delray Art Gallery. New Members Welcome! New Programming And Shows!

As a new season begins, the Delray Art League (DAL) invites new members, art lovers, and the public to their new home in the Heart of Delray Gallery.  Over 20 member artists display their work together in this beautiful setting.  On Wednesday, December 18, they’ll collect wrapped art supplies, brushes, small canvas, colored pencils, and paint, rather than toys to support our community arts education effort this Holiday season. DAL has teamed up with St. Paul’s Church in Delray downtown for ‘Art Meets Music’ events.  There is an OPEN ARTIST CALL to all artists in the surrounding area for exhibit and display space available for members of other like-minded artist organizations beginning December 14 – 15 at Veteran’s Park. Members of DAL also have opportunities to exhibit at Delray Beach City Hall and the Chamber!  The Rickie Report shares all of these details, including a few sneak peeks.  This is a wonderful artist-networking organization – check it out!  And as their new slogan says, “Art Lovers Wanted”!  We add: “Artists Wanted”!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ron Rizzi, President of the Delray Art League (DAL) brings his graphic art, photography, advertising, marketing, and technology background to take this well established group in new directions.  He tells The Rickie Report, “In May, we decided to create a few new ways to reach out to our members and also to those that have a love and passion for art whether it be painting, photography, sculpture, glass, drawing or multi media. The first thing I thought of was how and who would we like to reach out to in the community and surrounding areas”.

 

 

Delray Art League Meet Up

Wednesday, December 18

6:30 – 9 pm

At

Heart of Delray Art Gallery 

1440 N Federal Highway   Delray Beach, FL

Join us for another exciting meetup in December in the heart of Delray Beach, Florida. Bring Holiday  wrapped blank art canvas, paint brushes, colored pencils, or any art supply gift suitable for donation for the Holiday’s for the Delray Art League’s arts education programs in the community. All wrapped art supply gifts will be donated to one of our great Delray Community Centers for arts students.

See over 75 great artists displaying colorful and exciting work hanging in the Heart of Delray art gallery. See the Delray Art League’s Gallery inside the Heart of Delray Gallery and celebrate the Holiday’s with us.

Also meet members of the group and strike up a great conversation with fellow artists, art lovers and art aficionados. Bring a smile and a friend!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Patricia Deck “Surreal Tulips”

 

 

 

From using Meetup.com to outreach at SubCulture Coffee in Delray Beach, to offering gatherings for demos and discussions at Jerry’s Artarama in Deerfield on the 3rd Monday of the month, there are many interaction points for artists, both striving and accomplished, to learn and grow!  The Rickie Report is a strong advocate for artists to network with each other, so we give kudos to DAL for achieving this!

 

 

 

The Heart Of Delray Gallery

 

 

The next hurdle was to find a new gallery “home”, with which Dan Cianciotto, owner/curator of The Heart of Delray Gallery” helped DAL succeed.  DAL has space in the gallery for over 20 Delray Art League Artists to display their work and call The Heart of Delray Gallery home.  On Wednesday, December 18, DAL will collect wrapped art supplies, brushes, small canvas, colored pencils, and paint, to support our community arts education effort this Holiday season.

 

 

 

Marcos Porcayo “Moods”

 

 

Mixing art and music sounded like a great idea, as DAL teamed up with St. Paul’s Church in Delray downtown where ‘Art Meets Music’ and their classical and chamber music concert series continues to be a hit. Ron says, “Baroque cello and violin, easel and acrylic paint – and we were off on any given Sunday having some serious fun without tent pegs, wind weights and mesh”.

 

 

Roxanne Lewis  “La Bamba”

 

 

 

Ron shares, ” We expect to continue the tradition of our outdoor shows around downtown Delray and as Old School Square space became a premium we were lucky to have plenty of room at Veteran’s Park. We thought it may be merrier if we opened up Veteran’s Park spaces to our neighbors in Boca, Lake Worth and Wellington and beyond. So there is now an OPEN ARTIST CALL to all in the surrounding area! We have exhibit and display space available for members of other like-minded artist organizations to join us in Delray beginning December 14th – 15th. Space is a nominal fee. Insurance rider costs are $30 per exhibitor. We will have to hear from our neighbors before December 11th to plan accordingly to accommodate those that would like to join us at Veteran’s Park. I hope they will”.  The call to artists is included in this article.

“We are so thankful for the continued support of the community for the ArtCenter,” said Nancy Politsch, CEO/CFO of the ArtCenter. “The event depends on the generous donations from artists and we were fortunate that over 300 works of art were donated.”

 

Marcus Rothermich and Allissa Rothermich

 

 

The Honorary Chair is Roseanne Williams and Pat DeAloia is the Chair. Jason and Nicole Newsted are the Guests of Honor. “Everyone appreciates what the Lighthouse ArtCenter means to our community,” said Mrs. DeAloia. “The staff and volunteers work hard to provide programs to enrich our lives here in South Florida and I am proud to be a part of this incredible evening.”

 

 

At D’Art for Art, each guest is assigned an artist’s name to form 10 groups. As guests arrive they enjoy cocktails and gourmet hors d’oeuvres while perusing the gallery of over 300 pieces of displayed art and jewelry, noting their favorites on their “Wish List.” After enjoying a delicious dinner, it’s time to “dart!” When their artist’s name is randomly drawn, their group “darts” to their chosen piece of art, putting their claim on the work of art that they will be taking home.

“We are investing in the future of the arts in our community and this is our major fundraiser. Each year we raise scholarship monies for summer ArtCamp so kids, no matter what their financial circumstances are, can experience all the benefits of art classes,” said Sue Snyder, Director of Development. “In furthering that effort, we will also be also be focusing on our “Raising the Roof” fundraising campaign to build a second story on our Gallery to add five additional classrooms.”
