The Art Associates of Martin County (AAMC) is a non-profit welcoming group of artists sharing a strong common interest in the arts. Each month (October thru April, with a luncheon in May) members are treated to exciting meetings with demonstrations by well known local artists, opportunities to bring in art surrounding a common theme, and good conversation.  AAMC meetings are held at St Mary’s in Stuart the 3rd Monday of October thru April from 1:00 to 3:00. Each meeting includes exciting, interactive demonstrations by very well known local artists. Members also bring in artwork with a common theme and vote on the Artist Of The Month! Each meeting always brings surprises.

 

A Plein Air group often takes to the field for great adventures in painting.

From February 17-23 several monks from the Drepung Gomang Monastery in India will visit Martin County and bring their teachings of ancient ways and beliefs that create the possibility of global peace, nonviolent conflict resolution, compassion and wisdom. Highlighting their trip is the creation of a Sacred Sand Mandala in the Martin Artisans Guild Palm Room exhibition space. The monks will share Tibetan culture and traditions, as well as offer us universal lessons on compassion and impermanence.

 

 

 

 

The Sacred Art Tour supports the 2,000 monks in Mundgod, India, with funds for their education, healthcare and nutrition. Handcrafts by Tibetan artisans will be offered for sale. The Martian Artisans Guild is comprised of professional artists from the county who have banded together to promote the arts in Martin County. Their yearly activities include the Martin County Open Studio Tour which is held the third weekend of January, numerous exhibitions, artist seminars, a county gallery guide, and other art related opportunities for artists and the general public. Their goal is to make Martin County an arts destination.

NANCY  BACHELLER

Nancy Bacheller began painting a few years ago after retiring from Chicago Public Schools where she worked as Counselor/Case Manager in a school for emotionally disturbed students. She splits her time between Port St Lucie and Bloomingdale, IL.  She tells The Rickie Report, “I paint for myself.  Painting calms me and grounds me. It’s therapeutic for me and brings me a sense of tranquility. In fact, I call my work ‘Serenity Watercolors’. I hope when others view my paintings they experience a sense of peace, or maybe nostalgia”.

LINDA  SCHOPPMEYER

 

Linda Schoppmeyer tells The Rickie Report, “I have always had a strong desire to create! Art has allowed me to explore that urge through jewelry making, photography, or oil and watercolor painting. Choosing a medium that best suits the subject is a wonderful part of my journey to create. Primarily an oil painter, I have delved into plein air painting and watercolor. Capturing an image of a pet in watercolor portraits gives me the most joy in expressing my art. Plein air allows me to be part of nature and participate first-hand in the Florida landscapes, as I attempt to paint images in front of me, as well as capture the atmosphere, which is forever changing.  My art is an evolution and a continuing process to expand all areas of expression.  I hope you establish an emotional connection with some of my creativity, while I share my art with you”.
