Delray Art League Expands Its Programs, Open To All Artists And Arts Organizations As DAL Prepares For 55th Anniversary

The Delray Art League (DAL) announces its new “Artists and Easels” events throughout downtown Delray Beach. DAL hosts First Friday Art Walks at SubCulture Coffee on Atlantic Avenue the 1st Friday of each month and will be adding Pop-up locations near Old School Square.  DAL celebrates its 55th Anniversary in 2021 and is planning its “Vision 2020” Art Festival in the fall and spring of 2021. All events will be listed with ZAPP and are open to members, prospective members, artists from other organizations, and all local artists. DAL encourages artist conversations, meeting new friends, and enjoying the local arts community in Delray Beach.  Best of all, it’s FREE!  The Rickie Report shares the details here.  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ron Rizzi, President of the Delray Art League tells The Rickie Report, “The Delray Art League will celebrate its 55th Anniversary in 2021. We’re preparing for this grand event as we formulate plans for our Vision 2020 Art Festival in the Fall of 2020 through the Spring of 2021. As we schedule these new events and select locations in and around Delray Beach, we’ll be using ZAPP for event registration. Events will be listed there for our members and also prospective members and artists from other organizations. The jury process and event application for each show will make it simpler for everyone to participate”. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

DAL will continue with its new “Artists and Easels” events in 2020 throughout downtown Delray Beach. It hosts First Friday Art Walk at SubCulture Coffee on Atlantic Avenue the first Friday of each month beginning at 6 PM. We encourage our League members and meetup.com/Delray-Art-League members to come, join in the fun and bring one of their artworks to be displayed on their easel out front on Atlantic Avenue.

 

 

 

More pop up locations will be added near Old School Square and on Atlantic Avenue later this month and meetup.com/Delray-Art-League will be the best place to follow Artists and Easels events. It’s simple to RSVP as a Delray Art League member or as a MeetUp.com member. These events are open to all local artists in the community. We encourage artist conversations, meeting new friends and enjoying the Local Arts Community together in Delray Beach!  Best of all it’s Free!

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.

ANNOUNCING:

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.”
