Artist Talk During Reception

 

 

MEET   THE   ARTIST:

 

 

 

For Lynn Morgan, creating art is an integral part of her philosophy of being consciously aware of the world around her.  Lynn has been creating art all of her life.  Until her retirement from the corporate world, art was one of her hobbies, but it was the only hobby that she never tired of.  She knew that when she retired, she would reinvent herself as an artist, and that’s what she did.  By attending classes and workshops, she learned techniques that have evolved over the years from realistic renderings to a much more abstract style.  Lynn loves to travel the world and is considered quite the adventurer by her friends.  Her works are inspired by the sights and sounds of her travels to various parts of the world.

 

 

 

“Approaching Dream” by Lynn Morgan

 

 

 

Lynn painted with acrylics and watercolors until she was introduced to pastels.  She was hooked on the look of the pastel sticks, the feel of the medium in her hand with no brush as a go-between, and the brilliant color that clings to the tooth of the paper.  She has studied with Miroslav Antic, Terri Ford, Casey Klahn, Jen Evenhus, Aline Ordman and Tony Allain. 

 

 

 

“Sarlat, Market Day”  by  Lynn Morgan

 

 

 

Lynn is now a full-time artist. Her style continues to move toward more abstraction in both landscape and figurative works.  She tells The Rickie Report, ” Before I begin a painting, I already have an idea in my head about the subject matter.  That idea is often inspired by photos taken on one of my adventures, but it is always my intention to use photos only as an initial idea.  Since color is my primary passion, I will select a color palette based loosely on the subject but more on what colors I am in love with that day”.

 

 

Lynn explains, “I begin with a loose sketch of my subject using a dark hard pastel.  Then I block in dark and light shapes with hard pastels, usually in a color complementary to my final color scheme, and usually with a very bright color for the lights.  At this point, I will wash over the entire underpainting with denatured alcohol which creates the lovely drips, splashes and patterns that I will incorporate into the finished painting.

 

 

“Mangrove Madonna” by Lynn Morgan

 

 

 

The emotion of the painting begins with the application of soft pastel colors.   She tells us, “This is where I let my awareness of the beauty of brilliant color shine.With every stroke of the pastel stick, I find delight in the tiny flecks of pure color that remain on the surface of the paper.When I think the painting is complete, I leave it on the easel until the next day, when I will undoubtedly see adjustments or additions that need to be made.I will study the piece and ask myself a series of questions about design and composition.Does the work convey the emotion I felt when I saw the scene in person? Does it convey the emotion I felt when I imagined the idea?Depending upon my response to these questions, I will then make further adjustments or declare it complete and sign it. My goal is that my work expresses my quest to consciously understand my spiritual self to participate in creating a personal and collective reality for the world around me”.

 

 

 

“Light at the End” by Lynn Morgan

 

 

Lynn has a Bachelor’s degree in Education and a Master’s degree in Human Resources Management.  She ultimately became a single mother, so the ability to support her daughter became the driving force in her life, although painting remained a hobby.  She tried flying a plane, playing guitar and piano, playing golf, SCUBA diving and sailing, but she always came back to painting.   

 

 

She is a signature member of the National Association of Women Artists (N.A.W.A), the Artists Guild of the Boca Raton Museum of Art, the Florida Artists Group (FLAG) and Women in the Visual Arts (WITVA).  She is a juried member of the Pastel Society of America.  She exhibits both locally and nationally and has won awards at several exhibits.  Lynn is currently represented by GalleryVibe in Naples, FL, and she teaches pastel classes and workshops at the Lighthouse ArtCenter in Tequesta, FL.

Fine Art Photographer, Mark Stall

 

 

 

 

Mark Stall tells The Rickie Report, “I started my fine art photography career in 2002 using high-end digital cameras, video cameras, and my iPhone, which is always close by. I love the freedom that digital offers. I use the computer and apps to enrich my images and give them new identities. My distinctive work has won many top awards at leading juried contests in Wisconsin, including the Hidden River Art Festival Eddy Award (2012), several Cedarburg Art Museum (2014, 2015, 2016) Ozaukee Annual Juried Exhibition (2016) and The Milwaukee Intercontinental Hotel (2016)”.

Mark first picked up a camera at age 11 in 1968, using traditional photographic film and darkroom processes. His passion for photography was ignited! Mark owned and operated Pro Studio Supply for photographers since 1988 and continues his fine art career in Martin County.

Mark shares, “My passion is composition in architecture, everything nautical and in nature. Every day I capture images and experiment with post-processing to create vibrant and compelling statements about the world around me. With the computer, I give a single photograph many lives, shifting focus, changing colors and making it tell a completely new story”. He is a member of the Martin Artisan’s Guild & the Palm Beach Photo Center.

MEET   PATRICE  SCOTT

 

Opening Reception:

Thursday, May 2

5 – 7:30  PM  

 

 

MEET   THE   ARTIST:

 

 

“Self Portrait On the Indian River” by Patrice Scott

 

 

Patrice Scott tells The Rickie Report, “I draw and paint from life, be it figure, still life or, most favored, landscape. My paintings are an extension of my seeing but broadly interpreted and from a vantage point enriched by those artists who came before me. To them I owe a debt. Seeing their work, as a young student, I felt a kinship and a shared passion that set me on a path toward expressing my own vision of the world around me”.

 

 

 

 

Her art education laid the groundwork for forming that expression, and influencing artists such as Van Gogh, Hopper and Hockney taught Patrice how to interpret what she sees. “But ultimately, it is the act of painting that has developed my own language of expression. Each attempt in a new direction, filled with discovery.That continually renewing journey drives the desire in me to paint”.

 

 

“Garage Cafe, Micanopy” by Patrice Scott

 

 Patrice continues, “I find the hot, bright colors of South Florida a palette suited to the use of pastels in particular, and my transition from oil painting a few years ago a natural one, as I ventured outdoors more often. The pure pigment, and their immediacy and tactile nature allows a more intimate connection”.         

 

 

Most recently, Patrice’s landscapes often feature the lonely, abandoned (and rapidly disappearing) buildings of ‘old Florida’. A push back at all that is shiny and new in this part of the world and further expression of the singularity of the act of painting. She says, ” I find similar subject matter wherever I travel, throughout Florida, North Carolina, and along the Maine coast, a particular favorite. I seek to connect with and translate these landscapes that I love”.

 

 

Always drawn to art, Patrice Scott began pursuing her formal education as a teenager at the Cleveland Museum of Art, copying the Van Goghs and Rubens, and the Cleveland Institute of Art, drawing the figure. She earned her degree in studio art and art history at the University of Miami in 1971.

 

 

“Groveco” by Patrice Scott

 

 

After assisting a gallery owner on Cape Cod and running a sketch walk at Cape Cod National Seashore, Patrice opened and maintained her own gallery in Kennebunkport, Maine. She designed a line of jewelry that was sold throughout the country and was featured at Disney’s Fine Art Show in 1978.

 

 

 

“Sea King and Little Pearl” by Patrice Scott

 

 

A return to South Florida over 30 years ago marked a return to painting as well. Today she works both in her studio and outdoors for plein air landscapes, drawing and painting in charcoal, pen and ink, pastels, and oil on canvas.  Patrice organized and ran a figure drawing group, known as “LifeDraw”, for many years, bringing it eventually to the Elliott Museum where it continues today. She exhibits and sells her award-winning artwork in juried shows, galleries and other art venues in Florida and throughout the country, and regularly donates her work and expertise to a number of charities and institutions.

“Crashing Rocks” by Chris Kling
On our front featured wall, Chris has a large painting called “Crashing Rocks”. It gives you the real feeling of the power of the ocean. Also, on the front wall is a new portraiture of “Carter” and his fascination with the ocean. Chris is one of the featured artists in the New Smyrna Beach Paint Out next week.

MEET   THE   ARTIST:

 

Katie Gianni

 

 

 

Katie Gianni tells The Rickie Report, ” I developed a passion for ink and printing while studying lithography and wood block in college. I graduated from Stockton University of New Jersey with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Visual Arts and Printmaking. After moving to the Treasure Coast in 2015, I found myself without a printing press and in an artistic rut. I began painting with India ink to mimic linocut prints, and incorporated metallics to embellish the subjects shape and details such as feathers, scales, feet and facial features.

 

 

“The Hand That Feeds” by Katie Gianni

 

 

Katie is an emerging artist residing in Port Saint Lucie, FL. Her eye-catching, ornate artworks are created using a multitude of inks and acrylics on textured paper. Inspired by aboriginal and art nouveau styles, each painting is adorned with metallic gold, copper and/or silver ink, with intricate patterns in white ink. Her work focuses on local and exotic wildlife – including birds, reptiles, insects, fish and other ocean-dwellers; however, other subjects include furniture/home decor items, abstract portraits and repeat patterns. 

 

 

“Spoonbill In Marsh” by Katie Gianni

 

Last year, Katie was thrilled to have her painting, “Sandhill Cranes in Moonlight”, featured in the A.E. Backus Museum’s Best of the Best 2017 show in Fort Pierce, Florida. Her artwork will be showing at Kling Gallery Wine & Décor from October 3 – 31.  For more information on Katie Gianni, visit her website at:   www.katiegianniart.com.
