“Deep Calls Deep” by Lynn Doyal

 

 

 

Lynn is a native Floridian who attended Nova High School and received her degree in Fine Art from the University of South Florida.  Following graduation she put her paint brushes down in favor of working in the corporate world.  She worked for Exxon in New York for three years, transferring with them to Florida.  She then left Exxon and worked for Xerox before starting her own company, Signature Chocolates, which specialized in providing premiums and incentives for corporations, hotels and cruise lines.

 

“Enter by the Narrow Gate” by Lynn Doyal

 

 

After raising her family, Lynn resumed her creative endeavors and developed her unique method of marrying contemporary design with old school techniques using handstiching, beading, oil and acrylic paint all done on canvas to bring her images to life in an innovative way.  Her original pieces of exquisite handstiching can best be appreciated up close.  When her designs are enlarged they make for a more abstract and dramatic component.  The same image can have a different impact when size is introduced.  

 

 

“This marriage of image, techinique and materials is distinctive and causes people to talk about what they are seeing because there is nothing else like it.”   

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Wellington Art Society is a non-profit charitable organization in its 37th year. It is open to artists of all mediums and patrons of the arts, allowing both local and regional artists to display their art work in local galleries, interact with other artists and serve the community through their art.

Acrylic Painting by Maxwell Taylor

 

 

 

Maxwell was born on New Providence Island, Bahamas.  His artistic talent was discovered as a young schoolboy and early in life he was apprenticed to the fabled Chelsea Pottery.  He later moved to New York and studied at the Art Students League of New York and took further studies in photo silkscreen at the Pratt Graphic Center and printmaking at The Printmaking Workshop.  His uncompromising commitment to black power artists is evidenced in his woodcuts, etchings and stark canvases.  He admired and was influenced by Daumier, Braque and Picasso.

 

Wood cut print by Maxwell Taylor

 

 

 

Maxwell left New York after 20 years and traveled to South Carolina and Europe, observing the social, economic and political dynamics of many cultures but never forgetting his Bahamian roots.  In 1983 he was one of ten artists selected to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Bahamian Independence. Maxwell has had a one man show in Nassau, was represented in the exhibition “Bahamian Art Today” at Brent Malone’s Matinee Gallery and is found in the collections of Nat King Cole and Sir Harry Christie.  He received the Fellowship Award from the Southern Arts Federation for works on paper by the National Endowment for the Arts.     

 

 

Woodcut print by Maxwell Taylor

 

This versatile artist and accomplished technician has become a master of a variety of media.  He is renowned for his ceramics and paintings but it is in his printmaking that he excels using an ancient technique of cutting wood.  In his career he has explored themes of universality, despair, celebration and atrocities.

Jean Williard has always loved horses, drawing them from the time she was very small.  Her mother who was a portrait painter who discouraged her from pursuing her art, telling her” you have to be great to succeed”. Jean became an academic, receiving her doctorate in Developmental Psychology, teaching as an adjunct professor and working with children with behavioral and developmental problems.

 

 

 

“Downhill” by Jean Williard

 

 

Jean’s family could never afford a horse, so when she received a graduation check from her parents, she bought her first horse.  Her horses became her passion.  Years later when her mother came to live with her, she retired from her profession and after her mother passed away, Jean’s daughter suggested they take an art course together.

 

  

 

“Chucker” by Jean Williard

 

 

 Once she had  enrolled in a sculpture course she was hooked!  She has moved from working with ceramic clay to oil based clay and has been winning awards for her sculptures ever since.  She is delighted to have rediscovered herself at this point in her life.  She displays her beautiful sculptures in the Wellington Galleries and the LighthouseArtCenter in Tequesta. Jean says “I hope I can share this enthusiasm and love for horses with you”.

“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. 

 

 

 

 

Arti Gras 2017 Poster by Amber Moran

 

 

 

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.”

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.
