PAINT PALM BEACH EN PLEIN AIR 2017 (Formerly the Annual Lighthouse ArtCenter Plein Air Festival)

March 8-12, 2017

 

LACpaint-palm-beach-logo_orig2017.jpg

 

 

Lighthouse ArtCenter announced today the names of the 35 artists selected to participate in the 2017 Paint Palm Beach en Plein Air competition now in its 4th year at North Palm Beach County’s critically acclaimed art gallery and education center. The event will take place March 8-12, 2017. Plein Air has become a popular competition throughout the world, giving artists different venues to create in, while being challenged by the length and surroundings of the four-day contest. The selected artists compete for prize money and are able to display their work at the Lighthouse ArtCenter for gallery visitors to view, offer their opinions and purchase a favored painting at the Collector’s Party on Saturday, March, 11th, final day of competition. Paintings may also be purchased “wet” from the artist at the painting sites.
“We modified this year’s artist selection process after an outstanding 2016 competition,” said Lighthouse ArtCenter’s Chair of Painting and Drawing and Co-Chair of this event, Ted Matz. “Feedback from our former contestants suggested we narrow our field of artists to give each participant more exposure to the crowds drawn to watch them when they’re sketching and painting at the various venues. ”
With more than 120 applicants for the limited slots, Matz said the selection process became one of scoring several criteria, not all of which were based on direct artistic skills. “We wanted to be fair to artists who may not have participated in our Plein Air competition in the first three years. And fair to the Lighthouse ArtCenter patrons who want to see how new artists interpret our local scenery when challenged to capture it on canvas.”

The 35 artists selected scored highest when evaluated by the following:
1. Originality
2. Overall Quality
3. Consistency of Style
4. Technical Skills
5. Marketability to Audience

“We are thrilled by the artistic diversity selected to compete in March 2017,” said Lighthouse ArtCenter Curator Janeen Mason. “We had submissions from artists in 27 states and two who are international. We are excited to see how these artists translate our South Florida seascapes, landscapes and architecture.”

Fine artist, ceramic sculptor and instructor, Gail Erickson is the Featured Artist at Clay Glass Metal Stone Gallery in Lake Worth with an Opening Reception on Friday, February 6th.  The public is invited to “Feminine Fusion of Fin, Feather and Leather”.  Meet Gail, an enthusiastic artist whose “intent is to reveal, yet conceal, allowing the viewer to develop a personal connection to a piece.”  Gail’s mermaids, birds and clay portraits are thoughtful and fascinating. Texture plays a major role in unifying her body of work. Surfaces of sculptures are finished using combinations of slip, stains, underglazes, glazes and patinas.  Gail recently began creating clay sculptures of furry friends.  Stop by and speak to her about a commission of your favorite pet!  The Rickie Report shares the details and a sneak peek.

Originally from NY, Gail has been making art in some form for most of her life. Her childhood was filled with art classes in public school and art books. She excels at teaching herself new techniques including quilling ( thin paper strips rolled, glued, pinched, and assembled into a larger composition), creating mosaic pieces and drawing. However, working with clay has always been her medium of choice.

 

Sculpture by Gail Erickson

“Contemplation” Sculpture by Gail Erickson

 

 

While still in high school, Gail attended Wilson Technological Center in Suffolk County NY for Dental Lab Technology. She spent many years in the dental field as a technician and then as a dental assistant. She tells The Rickie Report, “Making crowns by carving wax and creating temporary crowns using acrylic satisfied some of my creative desires for that chapter in my life. In this field I also learned how to use many instruments and materials which prepared me for my future career in art”.

After starting a family of her own, Gail’s passion for the arts began to consume her. She took pottery classes, ceramics, design, 3-D design and drawing classes at Palm Beach State College FL.  In 2005 she won her first two awards, “Passion For Art” and “Three Dimensional Design” at the Eissey Campus at PBSC.

At the same time Gail traveled with The Art Alliance to London, San Francisco, and NYC visiting the major museums and galleries. She also volunteered at her daughter’s elementary school bringing “The Meet The Masters Program” to the children and she taught Pottery Studio Class at UB Kinsey Elementary School of the Arts. Presently she teaches a clay sculpting class at Wellington Community High School.

 

 

“Oreo” by Gail Erickson

 

Gail is constantly involved in learning more about her fine craft.  She is a member of The Ceramic League of The Palm Beaches, The Wellington Art Society, and Clay Glass Metal Stone Gallery.  Her collectors have described her work as “provocative and a little dark but in a good way”. The artist would agree.

“I Wish” Sculpture by Gail Erickson

“My work is but a perception of a moment once reflected. It is inspired by family, nature and the human form. It is a product of my feelings, emotions and passion for the tactile nature of clay.  Although my interests in clay are varied, I am drawn to portrait and hybrid figurative bird sculptures. My intent is to reveal, yet conceal, allowing the viewer to develop a personal connection to a piece.”

 

Her large sculptures are created using flattened rings starting from the bottom working up. Texture plays a major role in unifying her body of work. Surfaces of sculptures are finished using combinations of slip, stains, underglazes, glazes and patinas.
