Patricia Maguire’s SOLO Exhibit at the Cultural Council of Palm Beach County

Patricia (Pati) Maguire has been drawing and painting all of her life.  Whether viewing her plein air paintings, international landscapes, figures, portraits or still life creations, one can feel Pati’s sensitivity and sense of being “at one” with her subject matter.  As she says,  “Sometimes, even when my hands are still, I am painting in my mind. I see the world through the prism of light and shapes.”  Everyone will have an opportunity to view her work during a SOLO Exhibition at the Cultural Council of Palm Beach County’s Lawrence A. Sanders Foundation Artist Resource Center.  The Opening Reception is open to the public and the exhibit continues through November 15th.  The Rickie Report shares the details here.

"All Together" by Patricia Maguire

“All Together” by Patricia Maguire

 

 

 

Patricia Maguire’s view is that,” Art is nature as seen through the filter of emotions.”  She explains to The Rickie Report, ” I have been drawing and painting all my life. Sometimes, even when my hands are still, I am painting in my mind. I see the world through the prism of light and shapes.  I have not chosen to paint, rather it has chosen me, and I feel it is something I must do.”

 

"View from Ponte Vecchio Three" by Patricia Maguire

“View from Ponte Vecchio”  by Patricia Maguire

 

 

“My formative years were spent in big cities, with lots of access to museums, galleries and schools, but I have chosen to be closer to nature in the last decades. I live on the water, and escape to the mountains. I hope this love of our natural world communicates itself to you in my work. I was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina and spent years in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, and Caracas, Venezuela. I have now lived in Florida, USA, for the past decades. Each country has left footprints,” she shares.

 

 

"Deceptively Calm" by Patricia Maguire

Her formal art education began at Skidmore College, in Saratoga Springs, New York, where Pati earned a Bachelor of Science in Studio Art and continued with some Master level classes at Syracuse University. She holds an MBA from FAU.  ” My work has been exhibited at the Boca Raton Museum of Art, the Coral Springs Museum of Art, The Cornell Museum in Delray Beach  and other art venues throughout South Florida. My paintings presently hang in galleries in Delray Beach, Fort Lauderdale , New York, Bufflao,and  Port Jefferson, as well as in private and corporate collections in Brazil, Venezuela, Canada and throughout the USA.”

 

 

"Green Shadows" by Patricia Maguire

Pati teaches painting at the Delray Beach Center For The Arts and is a Signature Member of the Artists Guild of the Boca Raton Museum of Art, the Delray Art League, Plein Air Palm Beach Painters, The American Society of Impressionist Painters and is the founder  of the Florida ‘Scape Artists.

She lives in a renovated cottage, built in the 1930s, in Pineapple Grove one of the historical districts of Delray Beach, with her son Trey, a disabled veteran.  In 2014, Pat was Featured Artist at the 25th Annual Delray Beach Festival of the Arts.

"Sea Window" by Pat Kaufman

“Sea Window” by Pat Kaufman

 

 

Pat tells us, “I am inspired by the wonder of color. The transparency and spontaneity of watercolors gives life to my paintings. Here in Florida and other places I have visited, there is so much color all around you. When I observe the trees blowing in the breeze, the sunlight dancing off the leaves or the light shining through blossom petals, it inspires me to paint them and see if I can capture this dance of light.”   We love seeing her work on pillows, cutting boards, tiles and table tops as well as on walls!

Herman Scheiber at a Delray Art League Exhibit

Herman Scheiber at a Delray Art League Exhibit

Born in Newark, New Jersey, Herman Schreiber graduated from the Newark School of Fine and Industrial Arts in 1934. An artist who used pastels exclusively, he was a disciple of the “School of Ultra Realistic Painting.”  He created his pictures delicately and meticulously rendering the final products, which capture both images and emotions.  His landscapes, portraits, and figurative works are often mistaken for actual photographs.
"Alpine Village"

“Alpine Village”

During his lifetime, Herman exhibited his work in gallleries and museums in New Jersey where he won many awards including First Place at the South Orange Annual Art Show, Bloomfield College, and Montclair State College exhibits.  In Florida as a member of the Delray Art League 1988 – 1995, he exhibited in shows at Old School Square and other Delray sites and won numerous Blue, Red, and White Ribbons.  In 1994 & 1995 his work was in the 55th & 56th Annual Juried Exhibitions at the Society of Four Arts in Palm Beach.
"We're Not Talking"

“We’re Not Talking”

This exibit fills the lobby, hallways, and activity room in the Weisman Center and includes over forty of his exquisite pastel paintings.  Maxine’s book The SCHREIBERS: The Apple Doesn’t Fall Far From The Tree, which is published on Amazon.com, will be a available for sale at the opening event.
"Audience of One"

“Audience of One”

 
Maxine tells us, “Art has been an important part of my life as far back as I can remember.  My dad, Herman Schreiber, was a master artist, a true “Renaissance man.”  To support our family, he worked as a jeweler, a trumpet player, an optician, and a tax accountant. But he was always a visual artist, and his creative ability and temperament were a major influence on me.  When I was young, we spent hours looking through his treasured book World Famous Paintings, and he taught me how to draw.”

 

"Begonia Leaf"

“Begonia Leaf”

In 1993, he said, “I’m 79 years old and have a back-log of requests to last me until I’m 120.  I take my time and work at my own pace.  If I had deadlines to worry about, I wouldn’t enjoy it.  After all, I’m retired I’m not working for a living.  I had to give up playing the trumpet.  My front teeth and lips gave out, but my hands are steady, my imagination is vivid, and I enjoy painting.”
"Wakodahatchee Sunset" by Maxine Schreiber

“Wakodahatchee Sunset” by Maxine Schreiber

And the adage is true….Maxine Schreiber is a fine artist in her own right.  She exhibits her own work and is a member of the Artists of Palm Beach County, WITVA, NAWA and Armory Art Center.  Maxine’s newest creative work is a children’s book which she wrote and illustrated, “The Story of Daphne the Duck”.

Many of his studio works are larger than life faces creating pensive moods with feelings of isolation and loneliness.  Beginning in the mid 1980’s, he painted on-location in New York’s Hudson Valley and Long Island Hamptons and later in Palm Beach County Florida.

Pat tells us, “I am inspired by the wonder of color. The transparency and spontaneity of watercolors gives life to my paintings. Here in Florida and other places I have visited, there is so much color all around you. When I observe the trees blowing in the breeze, the sunlight dancing off the leaves or the light shining through blossom petals, it inspires me to paint them and see if I can capture this dance of light.”   We love seeing her work on pillows, cutting boards, tiles and table tops as well as on walls!

Deb LaFogg Docherty Announces Book Signing Event and Shares Tips for Artists Applying to Juried Shows

Since The Rickie Report first wrote about Deb LaFogg Docherty in September, 2011, she has been busy painting, entering, and winning awards at juried shows around the country.  Deb is just back from being a featured artist at Art Basel’s “Endangered” Exhibit.  In addition, Deb illustrated a children’s book, “Rosie’s Song” and served as a judge for the Friends of Loxahatchee Art Show!  In this article you will find information about Deb’s book-signings, shows, demos and some important tips from an art show judge’s point of view.

 

 

Deb LaFogg Docherty

 

 

deb-and-a-wolf

 

Deb LaFogg Docherty is an artist who believes in sharing her insights with others.  The Rickie Report stresses the importance of networking with other artists and Deb not only does that, she acts as a mentor as well.  

 

"Waiting for Mom"

“Waiting for Mom”

 

Recently she was chosen to judge the Loxahatchee Art Show and we asked her to share her thoughts.   “The Loxahatchee show was the first time I judged a show. It was more difficult then I thought it would be, since normally I’m one of the artists in the show”, she said.

 

"Under Mom's Watchful Eye"

“Under Mom’s Watchful Eye”

 

The Rickie Report asked what Deb observed as she examined each entry.    First, Deb referred to the rules of the application.  “This is what I was looking for:  Was it a place in the Loxahatchee Refuge and if not, could it be found there?  Next, what caught my eye?  What made the painting stand out from the rest?  Then I got down to the technique, lighting, composition and color, the same principles I base my work”.

 

"Palmettos in Warm Light"

“Palmettos in Warm Light”

 

She goes on to explain, “Most of all, I wanted the artists that were selected for prizes to know why they were chosen. So, at the Awards Ceremony I spoke about each winner’s painting.  It’s very difficult to judge a show. It is even harder when talented artists you know submit their work. No matter what you do, you feel like your going to offend someone.  I tried to remain neutral and stick to the criteria I had set for myself before I saw the entries”.

 

 

 

"Captured Gaze"

“Captured Gaze”

Deb’s Important Tips and Things to keep in mind when entering in a show:

 

  • What is the theme of the show?
  • Make sure it’s framed properly
  • Meet the entry deadline and rules to enter

 

“Giving these tips to artists that want to get into competitions and juried shows… that’s tough because no matter what you decide to enter you are not always going to get in. I can attest to that. Always enter your best work because it is a reflection on you. But more importantly never give up!  And yes, I would be willing to jury more shows” Deb reveals.

Rosie’s Song is a beautifully illustrated, full-color children’s picture book”.  There are a total of 48 including cover and double truck in Pastels.  Deb LaFogg illustrated the book and Mary Kate Leming is the author.  A second book in the works.
