Neil Capozzi tells The Rickie Report, “As you know, the arts are an important part of this community and I strive to be active member in providing a quality experience in art materials, art education and community involvement.  I’m offering another opportunity for artists to showcase their talents this year. The Arts Council is having a milestone anniversary in 2020. We will be celebrating 40 years of supporting the arts in Martin County. We will be kicking off the year long celebration with a gala. The theme of the gala is “Carnevale di mARTin – A Masquerade”. The gala is Saturday, February 1st 2020.  I am asking all artists to participate in this event by painting a Venetian Mask and I will be collecting them and donating them to the Arts Council. Our goal is to sell them to the attendees of the gala. Blank masks are available from Stuart Art Supply for you to explore your creativity”.

 

 

 

 

Our 1st Masks have been completed.

 

 

 

Neil explains, “The mask painting project has been well received and I have over 40 out being painted at the moment. Since I need the masks back by October 1 there is still an opportunity for our “snowbirds” to participate. You just need to send them back by October 1st. The sooner I get them back the sooner we can begin promoting the 2020 Gala.  The masks can represent the style of the artist or the traditional venetian festival. It’s up to you, the artist”. 

 

 

 

 

Stuart Art Supply has several blanks to choose from. Neil will be ordering more as we gather the masks for this event in February 2020

 

 

 

 

Venetian Mask History:  The graceful, rounded half-mask of the Colombina mask express the enchanting femininity the Commedia dell’Arte figure of the same name radiates when she steps across the stage. Colombina means “little dove,” but with their sweeping form, splendid colors, and elaborate ornament, our Colombina masks can help you become a “bird of paradise!”

 

 

 

 

 

Venetian masks have a long history of protecting their wearer’s identity. Made for centuries in Venice, these distinctive masks were made out of papier-mache and wildly decorated with fur, fabrics, gem and feathers. Eventually, Venetian masks emerged as the emblem of Carnevale a pageant and street fair celebrating hedonism. Additionally, the masks served an important social purpose of keeping every citizen on an equal playing field. Masked, a servant could be mistaken for a nobleman—or vice versa. State inquisitors and spies could question citizens without fear of their true identity being discovered and citizens could answer without fear of retribution. The morale of the people was maintained through the use of masks—for with no faces, everyone had voices.

 

 

Mask wearing became forbidden in 1797, so the venetian masks, along with the carnival masks and masquerade ball masks vanished completely. This continued until the early ’80s, when a group of venetian architecture students began to revive this ancient and long tradition. Since then, the carnival of Venice has turned to be again one of the most important and most beautiful in the world.

Award Winning Watercolor Artist, Deborah Elaine, Announces Current And Future Exhibits For 2018/2019

Award winning artist Deborah Elaine uses watercolors in varied ways to bring out the soul of her subject to the viewer. Her artwork is currently on exhibit at the Osceola Street Cafe in Downtown Stuart until January 27, 2019.   She will be involved with the Core Concepts 4th Annual Give Back party in Jupiter on December 15.  Art lovers can also visit Deborah’s studio and see her artistry at the 2nd Annual Martin County Open Studio Tour, January 20 and 21, 2019.  In addition, she will participate in the Treasure Coast Wildlife Fine Arts & Wine Event on February 2, 2019.  The Rickie Report shares the details and some sneak peeks.  Deborah’s commissions, murals, painted pours, and portraits are filled with color and nuance.

Deborah Elaine With her Artwork

 

 

 

U P C O M I N G        E V E N T S:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Deb tells The Rickie Report, ” I enjoy the expressiveness of the abstract and surreal nature of watercolor pouring”.  It is a unique style she developed when she was introduced to one of her mentors, Johnny Johnson. Her works are created allowing the medium to flow and become itself by utilizing the pouring technique. The painting starts out abstract in design and becomes surreal in nature by developing subject matter that is created with her imagination and her references. The method Deb uses to create her compositions is similar to laying in the plush green grass gazing into the clouds seeing the ever changing shapes that appear. Each painting is an expression and passion of hers.

 

 

 

“Parrothead Pierre” by Deborah Elaine

 

 

 

 

 

She says, ” I am innately attracted to the discovery of nature, wildlife, color, and design. And I’m at peace when creating in natural settings. For I feel close to the Creator—as if His hand guides mine.  I create and share with the hope that the joy I experience is vicariously shared by others. Or at least, makes them ponder.  There are many divine mysteries in this life. And through the paths we travel, He shows us the way and the hidden and beautiful things of this world”.

 

 

 

Dog Portrait Commission by Deborah Elaine

 

 

 

 

 

Deb began her watercolor career in 2003 after studying under Johnny Johnson, Gary Duquette, Joe Miller (Cheap Joe’s), and Linda Griffin. Originally part of the Fredericksburg Art Scene in Virginia for a decade, her first studio in Libertytown Artist Workshop was located at Liberty Street. She now has a home studio.

 

 

 

 

 

 

“Horse Love” by Deborah Elaine

 

 

 

 

Deb donates a portion of her sales to charitable organizations involved with Hurricane Irma clean-up and preserving our waters and coral reefs in Florida.   She points out, “Coral reefs and rain forests absorb a majority of the carbon dioxide that causes global warming. Without them we are killing ourselves”.

 

 

Porsche” by Deborah Elaine

Do you have a special person, place, pet you would like to capture in a commissioned painting? Deb loves commissions!  She discusses format, medium, technique, and colors before getting started.  She shows her clients some of the different styles that she paints in. “From the initial meeting, brain storming, sketches, and watercolor samples we meet again and finalize the ideas before going forward.  We will decide on a size, style, colors, matting, & framing for each piece of work. Communication is KEY in creating a very special commission for someone. The more I know, the more accurate I can be with your final artwork. I delight in creating a successful piece to add to your collection or the creation of a gift for someone special in your life”, she tells us.

 

 

 

Deb’s mission:

• To Influence others through the creativity and subject of my work
• To bring joy, laughter and happiness to others
• To reflect God’s beauty or a feeling of expression that touches and moves others • To give a peace and hope to finding your own path in life
• To give back what HE has given me
