“Loggerhead Taxi Service” by Amber Moran

 

 

Amber Moran was born on a farm in central New York State and learned to love the outdoors and the value of hard work. She and her brother raised and sold flowers and pumpkins which helped pay their way through college. Amber was always drawing or painting trees and animals.  Her parents were talented artisans who always encouraged her art and after her first visit to an art gallery, Amber knew that art was her calling.  Amber received an Associates Degree in Computer and Art Design from SUNY Alfred State and earned a Bachelors Degree in Studio Art at the University of Buffalo and worked toward a Masters Degree in General Education at Elmira College.

 

 

Her love of watercolors came years later when she began painting again when her children were small.  She stopped trying to be so intricate and went with the flow and had fun.  This led her to thinking outside the box and using ink to add illustrations over the layered and textured water colors.  She is influenced by the tropical setting in Florida and combines watercolor and ink creating a unique and colorful take on the coastal lifestyle.

Amber and her husband and children moved to Martin County in 2004 and are very  involved in environmental causes.  She is a member of the Bullfish Foundation with their Lionfish Program and creates and donates art for the Lionfish Roundup each year.  She works with the Association of Environmental Professionals and with different Sports Fishing Tournaments who donate to specific organizations.  She also belongs to the Hobe Sound Chamber of Commerce and the Martin County Arts Council.  She has won many awards, is featured in local  magazines and shows her art work in many venues throughout Florida.

 

 

Amber tells The Rickie Report, “I’m in love with the vastness of the ocean, the mystery of the Florida canals and rivers and the peacefulness of the bush where the only sound is the palms blowing in the wind”.

“Energy” by Deborah  Bigeleisen

 

 

 

Deborah  Bigeleisen grew up in Los Angeles and attended college at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City, where she graduated with high honors.  Always entrepreneurial, and a risk taker,  Deborah was ahead of her time in establishing a global textile print design company in Manhattan where she served as the president and creative director for eighteen years.  

 

 

 

Deborah moved to West Palm Beach in 1998, and started painting as hobby.   Without any formal fine art education, her talent was cultivated through local art classes and master artists workshops.   She was mentored by renowned visionary Gordon Parks, whom she was proud to regard as a good friend. Within two years Bigeleisen’s paintings were accepted into fine established galleries, thus launching  her second successful career as a fine art painter.  Deborah says that she found a voice inside that she never knew she possessed.

 

“Romantic Interlude” by Deborah Bigeleisen

 

 

 

Whether painting highly representational images, or more non-objective visions, Deborah Bigeleisen’s dynamic and evocative paintings of flowers stand alone in the contemporary fine art arena. Her technique is rooted in the practices of the Dutch master artists;  her conceptual work is rooted in the principles of fractals.  Never being content to stay in her comfort zone, Deborah continually pushes her vision.  She does not subscribe to rules.  “Every painting is a fresh beginning, and a new journey; and  I cherish the unpredictability.”

 

 

 

Deborah Bigeleisen and “Fractal”

 

 

 

 

Deborah’s work has been represented by fine art galleries from Aspen; to San Francisco, to Naples, FL; to Washington, DC; to Southampton, NY, and to New York City. Her paintings have been prominently featured in international Contemporary and Fine Art Fairs.  Her work has been widely published in journals and art books ranging from Science Creative Quarterly, to Michael K. Corbin’s trilogy ‘A Collector’s Journal,’ to New Art International and Studio Visit. Her paintings have graced the covers and interior pages of international interior design publications including Florida Design, Miami Home & Décor, Art and Antiques, LUXE Magazine, and Architectural Digest. Deborah’s work is collected world-wide and enhances the corporate collections of American Airlines, Beauté Therapies Inc., The Koury Corp., and LBC Design & Construction to name just a few. Her paintings have received awards, and have been exhibited in numerous museum shows including the Boca Raton Museum of Art, the Platt / Bornstein Galleries at American Jewish University in Los Angeles, and the Williamsburg Art & Historical Center in Brooklyn, NY.

 

 

 

 

Untitled Diptych by Deborah Bigeleisen

 

 

 

Bigeleisen enjoys sharing her knowledge by lecturing on various art related topics; conducting private tours of Art Basel and Art Miami during Miami Art Week every December; and leading private museums tours where her focus is on “looking at art through the eyes and mind of an artist.”  She has served as an artist in residence; conducts artist workshops, and is an adjunct professor of art at Palm Beach State College.

 

 

 

Deborah is a long standing member of the National Association of Women Artists and the Cultural Council of Palm Beach County.  She served as chair person for Art and Public Places for the City of West Palm Beach for ten years.  She is an active member of Soroptimist International of the Palm Beaches; and a former board member of the Palm Beach County Women’s Chamber of Commerce. Deborah lives and works in Royal Palm Beach, Florida.

 

Ms. Bigeleisen’s paintings are sold through fine art galleries, and have been prominently exhibited in international Contemporary and Fine Art fairs including the Architectural Digest Home Design Show, ArtHamptons, the Chicago International Art Show, the LA Art Show, the Palm Beach Jewelry, Art and Antique Show and the Shanghai Art Fair.

“Abstract Orange Poppies” by Marilyn Bobbin Salisbury

 

 

 

Bobbin, originally from New York, has an Associates Degree in Art from Nassau Community College and also studied art at Mallory University.  She has attended classes and workshops in New York and Florida.  She has painted all her life, first in oil and now in watercolor and acrylics after her three year old ruined a number of oil paintings.  She loves painting things in nature: flowers, ocean and trees and never goes anywhere without her paints, brushes and lots of paper!  She enjoys realistic painting but continues to evolve into her own style, trying new products and techniques to produce colorful abstract works.     

 

 

“Golden Note” by Marilyn Bobbin Salisbury

 

 

 

 

Bobbin is a Signature Member of the Palm Beach Watercolor Society and the Wellington Art Society.  She participates in all of their exhibits as well as others, including on line competitions. Bobbin is a member of the ” Sketchbook Project” of the Brooklyn Art Museum.  One of her sketchbooks led to her creation of “Silly Selma”, a children’s picture book series.  She is presently finishing the illustrations and hopes to publish them soon.   She tells The Rickie Report, “I frequently use watercolor and am guided by the spontaneity of creating beautiful new color mixes and shapes on the wet paper”.

Light Painting Vlog by Jason Page

 

 

 

Jason’s father was an avid photographer, who moved his family to Palm Beach when Jason was very young.  After high school he went on to study film production in college and focused his cinematography on his love of surfing.  He produced, shot and edited four feature length award winning films.  Jason tells The Rickie Report, “Light painting is its own art form, just as drawing is an art form or painting is an art form.  Calling light painting a ‘photographic technique’ would be the same thing as calling painting a canvas technique”.

 

 

Light Painting by Jason Page

 

 

 

Jason discovered light painting by accident when shooting a full moon and he bumped his camera.  When he checked the image and saw the streak that the moon left across the sky it was his epiphany and from that moment on he was a light painter!  He is widely recognized as a leader in the light painting movement and has created ground breaking images.  He uses both digital and film but prefers shooting film whenever he can.  He uses his camera as an instrument for recording light and all of his paintings are created in real time and captured on the camera in one single photographic frame.  Jason creates his images in total darkness and paints with light just as a traditional  painter would with oils or acrylics.

 

Light Painting with Janelle Monae by Jason Page

 

 

Jason Pages’s paintings have been exhibited in many cities in Europe and India as well as the United States and throughout Florida.  Light painting is created in real time, captured to the camera in one single photographic frame using the Light Painting Brushes.

Nicole Galluccio

 

 

 

 

Nicole Galluccio has her own unique style of mixed media “happy” art.  She is best known for her bright stylized florals with her wearable art in shoes, pins, and purses.  Her collages incorporate music, mod fashions, comics and tabloid newspapers spinning them into visual explosion of color against a black and white background.  Nicole’s  work has been exhibited at the Cultural Council of Palm Beach County, Continuum, the Boca Museum of Artist’s Guild and most recently a solo exhibit “Full Bloom” at the Cornell Art Museum in Delray Beach.  She tells The Rickie Report, “I see every day as an opportunity to grow.  I believe art is for everyone and I strive to have something available for all budgets”.

 

 

 

Wearable Art by Nicole Galluccio

 

In college Nicole majored in Biochemistry but as soon as she began bio illustrations she found her true calling.  However, she worked for 15 years in the corporate world and worked with her art on the side.  After several successful shows, Nicole left her corporate job and became a full time artist.  She is now located in a studio in the Boynton Beach Art District where she continues to evolve as an artist.  Nicole Galluccio is a mixed media visual artist, originally from New Jersey, living and creating in South Florida since earning her BFA from Florida Atlantic University in 1998. Nicole’s mixed media work often juxtaposes bright beautiful florals atop a stark black and white paper background, to demonstrate depth and opposition both visually and emotionally. Her work intends to evoke happiness and positive emotional response through colorShe has shown several times in the Cultural Council of Palm Beach County as well as in fine art fairs and galleries in Florida and is currently a resident artist at the Boynton Beach Art District.  She will take part in a group exhibition at the Cultural Council of Palm Beach County, “ Play with your Food”.  The opening preview party is Thursday, September 13th and the Exhibit opens to the public on September 14th. 

Nicole Galluccio was chosen to take part in a Public Art Project , “Aesop’s Tables”

 

 

Nicole’s work provides the viewer an escape into something purely joyful and fun, oppositional to reality as a means to feel a positive emotional connection. Painting this imagery has been an escape mechanism for her own internal struggle, as viewers would say, “The work just makes me happy” …. Color can be very powerful and when used properly, in conjunction with light imagery, and contrast, it provokes a carefree experience. And who wouldn’t want to be around that?  

 

 


Artwork by Nicole Galluccio

 

 

 

 

Going forward, Nicole intends “to explore more challenging detail, media and color exploration. In 2017 and 2018, I focused mostly on evolving into more inspiring realms in symmetry within my work, with the Sacred Series; homage to sacred geometry via the mandala but exclusively using elements used in all previous work”.  The work presented in her most recent solo exhibition at the Cornell Museum of Art in Delray Beach, “Full Bloom” illustrates the evolution of Nicole’s work from 2017 to present, with the intention of bringing all previous elements together, in a bolder magnified light as well as in new media and construct.
