Kling Gallery Wine & Decor Features Patrice Scott. Public Invited To Free Reception On May 2

The Kling Gallery, Wine & Décor located in Stuart, FL announces the month of May’s Featured Guest Artist, Patrice Scott.  Patrice chooses pastels for their pure pigment, immediacy, and tactile nature, as they give her paintings a more intimate connection.  Her fascination with “Old Florida” not only preserves our history, but allows for the continuation of the story!  The public is invited to a Free Opening Reception on Thursday, May 2.  Enjoy hors d’oeuvres, the wonderful wine boutique and meet the artists!  The Rickie Report shares the details and some sneak peeks.  In addition to wall art, browse the hand made furniture, home accessories, and the wine bar!

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.

MEET   KATIE  GIANNI

 

Opening Reception:

THURSDAY, OCTOBER 4th

5 – 7 PM  

Exhibit runs through October 31st

 

 

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.

MEET   MIMI  McCALLUM

 

Opening Reception:

Friday, August 24th

5 – 7 PM  

Exhibit runs through September

 

 

MEET   THE   ARTIST:

 

 

 

 

“Self Portrait” by Mimi McCallum

 

 

After years of creating visually recognizable imagery Mimi McCallum has taken a new direction!  Her new path is taking her into the world of abstract.  The pieces are painted with cold wax medium and oil paint.  Oil pastels, graphite oil sticks and other medium find their way into the mix.  Mimi’s brushes have been laid aside, as the paint is applied to canvas or cradled board with an assortment of tools: squeezes, spatulas, knives, rollers, printing implements, anything is in the game!

 

“Get Crackin” by Mimi McCallum

 

 

This luscious medium can be layered and layered, carved into and scraped away creating interesting textures and fascinating color blends.  The paintings have a history that is revealed and interwoven into the final image. Her one requirement is that the painting will stand compositionally from any direction, so it may be hung and viewed in personal preference.   Mimi’s paintings are intuitive and spontaneous with no initial plan.  Her “New Directions” take her on the creative journey, and she invites us along with her!

 

 

  “In The Park” by Mimi McCallum

 

 

 

Mimi received her Master of Art Education from Florida International University in Miami, her BA from Montana State in Bozeman MT.  She completed the Florida art certification from FSU in Tampa. Mimi attended Anchorage West High, where her father was an FBI agent.  She is married with two children and two grandchildren.

 

“Untitled” by Mimi McCallum

 

 

Mimi puts her talent to work in her studio in Jensen Beach, FL, and exhibits throughout Florida and the Bahamas.  She tells The Rickie Report, “Through my art I aspire to capture moments in time that relate to memories that touch our hearts. I aspire to create images of objects, places and figures with pleasing shapes and energetic color.”  Mimi’s new work was recently exhibited at Art Synergy 2018.

Opening Reception:

Thursday, June 7

5 – 7 PM

Manon Sander 

 

 

 

Manon Sander tells The Rickie Report, ”I paint things in my neighborhood, things of my daily life which seem ordinary, but for me it’s less about what I’m actually painting and more about my fascination with the effect of light of objects. Painting in oil, oftentimes from life I put my impressions down in thick juicy brushstrokes, aiming to capture the essence and the light on my subject matter and the feelings it evokes in me. “

 

 

“Favorite Toy” by Manon Sander

 

 

A native of Germany, she painted murals professionally in Chicago for a decade and a half and studied oil painting under the tutelage of well known Californian painters. During that time she developed a unique, glowing style, avidly collected throughout the United States.  “Painting is my way to bring attention to the beauty found everywhere in our immediate surroundings, seen by those who are willing to slow down and look”.

 

“Secret Garden” by Manon Sander

 

 

Manon says, “I find inspiration for my next painting not necessarily in an object considered beautiful in the conventional sense since my desire to paint is mostly ignited by watching the light hitting an object a certain way. Illuminating something in all its brilliance while creating wonderful colors and designs in the shadows, light has the power to elevate an object from the mundane to the exquisite. How light influences color has been a source of endless fascination for me. Expressing my joie de vivre through loose brushstrokes in combination with a well thought-through design and a vibrant color choice translates into a painting that resonates not only with me as artist but also with the viewer, offering him a view of things that might otherwise have gone unnoticed”.

“Cheerio” by Manon Sander
