We are proud to offer an unprecedented equal opportunity for all artists!

We are unique in the fact that we accept the work of ALL of our member artists, from emerging to professional, to show, sell and compete for awards in our Artist’s Eye Gallery and Boutique in downtown Lake Worth.

 

 

Our gallery is owned and operated by the Lake Worth Art League, the oldest non-profit art organization in Palm Beach County, founded in 1941. The league is comprised of very talented artists from all disciplines. More good news… it is very inexpensive to join and show. First, become a member for just $75. per year. You then have the opportunity to show up to 5 pieces of work in each one of our 8 judged “season” shows. Each show is judged by a qualified judge that is not affiliated with the league. The league offers cash prizes and ribbons for first, second, third, and honorable mention award winners during season.

 

We also have a “Peoples Choice” award where the public is the judge! Low entry fee for shows. Summer exhibitions continue with reduced prices for entry. The league retains 20% of all sales, which along with membership, entry fees and our volunteers, helps keep the gallery open and your work visible to the public. A reception with light refreshment is held for each show. All shows are advertised.

MISSION STATEMENT:

  • Support the Boca Raton Museum of Art (BRMA).
  • Provide an association of artists in all media to interchange ideas, support and educate members and provide quality venues for the exhibition of their original fine art.
  • Treat members and customers with respect and dignity.
  • To contribute to the cultural climate of South Florida.
  • Grow our organization.

ARTISTS GUILD HISTORY:

 

In 1950, Boca Raton had a population of less than 1000, with the library acting as the cultural center of the community. Community members began an “Open House,” to exhibit their individual arts and crafts accomplishments. In 1951, the Art Guild of Boca Raton was organized and later incorporated on December 12, 1954.  In 1960, five adjacent lots were purchased on West Palmetto Park Road. Construction began in 1962 and, in the fall of that year, 12 years from it’s founding, the Art Guild dedicated its first home.

 

Because of a pressing need for studio space, due to the growth of its classes, a building committee was created in 1968. On March 29, 1969, the Studio Building was dedicated. Since 1969, the growth of the Art Guild has taken many different directions. The Exhibiting Artists Guild, known as the P.A.G. or Professional Artists Guild, was formed.

 

Artists of the “Guild,” held critiques, presented demonstrations by well-known artists and were invited to exhibit their works in several hotels, corporations and clubs. In 1975, the Center changed its name to Boca Raton Center for the Arts, and 10 years later, the Boca Raton Museum of Art. In a relatively short period of time, the enthusiastic support of a group of community artists led to the foundation of the BRMCA!

 

In 1997, the name was changed to Boca Museum Artist Guild. Membership was opened to the community. Guild membership was divided into two categories: Associate and Exhibiting. Guild activities have significantly contributed to positive public relations for the Museum. The Guild has participated in Boca Festival Days for 16 years; exhibited with Northern Trust Bank at their request; and provided artwork for Boca Raton Community Center, City Hall and Patch Reef Park. For two years, the Guild provided the Art Department of Pine Crest School with exhibits for teaching tools and with member lecturers. For the past three years, the Guild has participated in a joint exhibition project with the students of Boca Raton High School. Several Guild members serve as teachers at the Museum’s Art School. Additionally, Guild artists support the Museum’s Annual Auction with donated artwork and volunteers.

 

In 2000, The Artist Guild moved its exhibition center from Royal Palm Plaza to the Shops at Boca Center. Known as the Images Gallery, it offered Signature Members a first class exhibition space in a popular, commercial center. It proved to be a very positive public relations effort for both the Guild and the BRMCA. Professional artists were drawn to the center, as there was no comparable exhibition space for local artists in the tri-county area.

 

Membership in The Artists Guild doubled between 2000 and 2004. We currently have several hundred members, both artists and lovers of the arts. Increasing art sales produced real year-end contributions from The Artists Guild to the Boca Raton Museum of Art.  The Artists Guild moved to Mizner Park in Boca Raton in April 2005. Between April 2005 and September 2008, the Images Gallery was in three different Mizner Park locations. The Guild lost its space in Mizner Park and The Images Gallery closed at the end of September, 2008.  In October 2008, the Guild secured a new location for its gallery, this time on Atlantic Avenue in Delray Beach. This new gallery, now known as The Artists Guild Gallery, reopened in November, 2008, with participation of over 100 Signature Members of The Artists Guild.

 

In September 2017, the Guild moved back to Boca Raton in a new larger space on Federal Hwy. This new gallery, known as The Artists Guild Gallery, is over 3,000 square feet. It reopened in October, 2017, with participation of over 100 Signature Members.

“Window On The World”, Original Art Exhibit From National Award Winning Author/Illustrators Opens June 3 At Lighthouse ArtCenter. Tequesta’s Cultural Jewel Offers Plethora Of Events Including Summer Camp!

Galleries in Florida’s metropolitan areas would give anything for an exhibition like the one planned this summer at the Lighthouse ArtCenter!  For the 3rd summer in a row, the Lighthouse ArtCenter is celebrating an installation with some of the biggest names in the world of the children’s publishing industry. “Window On The World” will exhibit from June 3 – August 10. A docent-led tour for Groups or Field trips is available, which includes a make-and-take art object! You could expect a show of artwork by internationally known cultural icons in Miami, Orlando, or Tampa, but right here, in the Village of Tequesta, the most famous children’s book illustrators in the world show their original paintings.  How lucky are we? In addition, Summer Camp starts June 3, with lots of activities. Rickie Report shares the details about Summer Camp, the Exhibit, some sneak peeks, and information about making advanced reservations for tours/field trips.

“Sisters and Champions” Illustrations by Floyd Cooper

 

 

 

 

Visitors interested in acquiring new paintings for their collection will find many pieces available for purchase.  Summer camps looking for cultural experiences for their students are able to schedule docent-lead tours of the exhibition along with make-and-take art projects. During the dog days of summer, when another afternoon at the beach doesn’t inspire enthusiasm, bring your friends, neighbors and your Great Aunt Velma for a cultural experience they’ll always remember.

 

 

Google any one of these names and you’re sure to find pages upon pages of national and international awards: Peter H. Reynolds (The Dot, Ish, The Word Collector), Floyd Cooper (The Blacker the Berry), Brian Lies (The Rough Patch, Bats at the Beach), Emily McCully (Mirette on the High Wire), Erin E. and Philip Stead (A Sick Day for Amos McGee).  Today’s elementary school generation know and love the books, teachers and librarians around the country watch closely for their new titles and you should, too.  Picture Books are often a child’s first introduction to the arts.  They act as a mirror as well as a window on the world.  

 

 

 

 

From “Mirette on the High Wire”, illustrated by Emily McCully

 

 

 

 

Floyd Cooper is probably one of the best known, most celebrated, and highly regarded artists in the industry.  He has won the Coretta Scott King Award and Honor multiple times.  In an online interview about his 2019, “The Rough Patch”, Brian Lies says, “We all experience rough patches in our lives: loss, disappointment, and darkness. I wanted Evan’s story to provide readers with a safe way to experience those feelings and know they can come back from them. Ultimately, I see this as a book about hope!”  

 

 

From the Horn Book Review, “Sometimes a children’s book is so heart-warming it needs no greater purpose for reading than just to enjoy it. And sometimes you get lucky and a book is not only sweet, but perfect for that lesson you want to teach about characters! “A Sick Day for Amos McGee”, written by Philip C. Stead and illustrated by Erin Stead, is one such book.”

 

 

And, the reviews read like this for an extraordinary new tale, “The Word Collector”, by Peter H. Reynolds:  “Peter H. Reynolds always manages to walk a delicate line with his books – make that a couple lines: weighty but not weighed down. Universal yet kid-centric. No easy feat.”-Travis Jonker, School Library Journal   “Some people collect stamps. Some people collect coins. Some people collect art. And Jerome?  Jerome collected words . . . “In this extraordinary new tale from Peter H. Reynolds, Jerome discovers the magic of the words all around him — short and sweet words, two-syllable treats, and multi-syllable words that sound like little songs. Words that connect, transform, and empower.   From the creator of “The Dot”, “I Am Human”, and “Happy Dreamer” comes a celebration of finding your own words — and the impact you can have when you share them with the world.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

About 500 ArtCampers (some who hail from as far away as California or New Jersey) hop, skip and fly into the School of Art each summer to exercise their creative muscles using traditional mediums like clay and paint.  But for the second year in a row the campers will also spend a portion of each day inside the Gallery, surrounded by the artwork they already recognize.  Different from any other summer, in 2019, the Lighthouse ArtCenter ArtCampers are working collaboratively with the students of the Maltz Jupiter Theatre Goldner Conservatory of Performing Arts to craft a play with music based on the bestselling book “The Word Collector” © 2018 by Peter H. Reynolds, originally published by Orchard Books, Scholastic, used with permission of Pippin Properties, Inc.

 

 

• Lighthouse ArtCenter ArtCamp hours:  9:00 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. (before and aftercare can be arranged)

• ArtCamp runs for 8 weeks, beginning June 3, ending August 2, and closed for the week of the 4th of July.

• Scholarships are available with proof of need

HAYDEE    ULLFIG    ART    STUDIO/ GALLERY

561.324.8944    www.haydeeullfigartstudio.com

 

 

 

Haydee tells The Rickie Report, “My style of teaching is to encourage confidence, self-expression and individuality while adventuring into the basics of art and developing the student’s power of observation and decision making.  Classes are kept small offering more individual attention to each student. Along with relaxing and having fun, creating a beautiful painting will increase confidence and self-esteem as well as the freedom to think flexibly and solve problems. This is especially important for the healthy development of any child as well as a stress release for any adult”. Inside the studio itself the depth of her talent is evident in her work exhibited on the walls; expressions of her powerful artistic statement reflecting her unique vision. Some classes, weather permitting, will be taught outside in the garden.  

 

 

 

 

 Fine Artist, Haydee Ullfig

 

 

Haydee emigrated with her family from Argentina to Chicago as a young child. While in primary school she already showed a strong natural aptitude for art. Haydee continued studying art through High School in Chicago, IL and was awarded a scholarship for classes at the Art Institute of Chicago. She graduated with a major in Fine Arts in 1972 from William Rainey Harper College, Palatine, IL.  Her subsequent degree in Business Administration from the University of Miami, has strengthened her entrepreneurial spirit. Her creativity, versatility and professionalism is reflected not only through her fine art paintings, but in various projects such as children’s book illustrations, commissioned art for interior designers, commissioned portraits and murals. 

 

 

HAYDEE’S VISION: TEACHING OUR CHILDREN CREATIVITY FOR A BETTER WORLD

If you can imagine it, You can achieve it. If you can achieve it, You can become it. –  William Arthur Ward

 

 

 

Haydee says, “Teaching children art, or more specifically creativity, is not only for teaching them to become our future fine artists. Teaching children creativity means teaching them observation and divergent thinking.  Divergent thinking is a thought process or method used to generate creative ideas by exploring many possible solutions.  With divergent thinking children learn to go beyond the mundane towards originality, inventiveness, inside-out thinking, resourcefulness and productivity”.

She continues, “Our world needs these future creative visionaries…..and who knows….they may become the next “Einstein or Jane Goodall” that will save our environment”.  Will they become the next researchers that will allow us to continue living quality and healthy lives in this wonderful world?  They may become our future artists who will l sustain our hope in the future, enhance our world with beauty, and keep our eyes open so that we may conscious of our actions”.

 

 

 

 

“Claire De Lune” by Haydee Ullfig

 

 

 

Haydee’s commitment to give back to the community is  exemplified by her volunteerism creating art for various benefits and non-profit events throughout Palm Beach County, including the Hobe Sound Mural Project, Art in the Alley, and a large mural at Big Dog Ranch Rescue, Wellington, FL, to name a few. Her extensive travels throughout Europe and South America, visiting cultural and artistic centers, her keen observation of the world around her, her love of children, animals and nature, as well as her capacity to see “outside the box” continue to enhance her creative development.  She considers herself an “artist in transition” with her best work still to be created.

 

 

 

WHERE    ART    MEETS    POSSIBILITIES:

 

 

 

 

ADULT      CLASSES:

 

 

 

As an artist and art educator, Haydee Ullfig knows that it’s never too late to get into art or even to re-invent your creative talents. Our classes designed for adults will guide you through the techniques and principles of various fine art and craft mediums. Class sizes are limited, which ensures you’ll be receiving plenty of individualized guidance from the instructor.  

 

 

 

 

 

“Ride A Wild Horse” by Haydee Ullfig

 

 

 

Painting

Probably the first thing that comes to mind when one thinks of fine arts, painting is a wonderful gateway into the expansive world of art.  We offer lessons in acrylic, watercolor, gouache and mixed media. Our lessons focus on color mixing, brush technique, composition and theory, but we make sure to emphasize in self-expression.

Drawing

If you want to start with a basis before starting painting, drawing fundamentals including observational drawing is what you need.  Who knows, you may just decide to focus only on drawing which is an art in itself.   Our lessons emphasize on seeing, using right-brain techniques, line contours, shading and perspective. Lessons available in a wide array of drawing materials; learn to draw in charcoal, pencil (graphite and colored), pastels, oil pastels, pen and ink.

Other Creative Expressions                                                                                                

Other media specific classes may be added to our schedule, such as mosaics and sculpture and these will be posted on our website.

One of a Kind Necklace by Irene Jalowayski 

Irene’s jewelry pieces are distinctive.

Her wearable art pieces include one-of-a-kind necklaces, earrings, and cuff bracelets.  

Each object is truly unique, not only due to the glass work, but because she understands the wearer’s need to own a singular adornment.

 

 

 

“Fly Away” by Irene Jalowayski

 

“Fly Away” is cast glass on metal.  The metallic background is a tree of life. 

The three large cast glass feathers are surrounded by cast glass hummingbirds, glass leaves and flowers.

 

 

Irene’s increasingly detailed process as a glass artist shows the degree to which she has pushed herself to stretch boundaries, and in glass work, that is challenging!  “Fly Away” was featured at Continuum/Art Palm Beach 2019 and at the Cornell Museum at the Women in The Visual Arts exhibit “Celebrating 30 Artful Years”, where it won an honorable mention.  (That show was extremely competitive and accepted only 20 pieces).  Irene tells The Rickie Report, “To me it represents the beauty and freedom of nature and the desire to escape the humdrum of city life once in a while”.

 

One of a Kind Seder plate by Irene Jalowayski

 

 

 

 The viewer can feel the excitement of Irene’s creative process. Her personal glass collection in includes creations from the United States, Italy, and Sweden. Her inspiration comes from nature and her own imagination, as you will see with “Fly Away”.  The process of casting glass is complicated and more difficult than that of fused glass.  First, Irene makes a clay sculpture. Over the weeks that it takes to dry, she will continue to incise, brush, and assure that the mold is exact.  Then she casts the mold in plaster.  Once the plaster is dry, the mold is filled with glass and fired to 450 degrees for 38 hours.  Once cooled, the mold is broken away from the glass, resulting in a solid piece of glass which will never be reproduced!

 

One of a kind Fused glass earrings, necklaces, and bracelets by Irene Jalowayski

 

Irene’s fused art glass pieces are filled with colorful dichroic glass mixed in bright, beautiful backgrounds. The viewer can feel the excitement of the creative process!  Her abstract sculptures will enhance any decor.  Irene’s functional art pieces include cast glass jewelry boxes, bowls, vases, plates of varying sizes, and small accent tables. Her Judaica array includes mezzuzahs, candle sticks, menorahs, matzah plates, and she offers to create a unique bowl using the shards of the glass which is broken during the wedding ceremony!

 

Confetti glass vase by Irene Jalowayski

 

 

It’s only been 6 short years since Irene was featured as an emerging artist at ArtiGras. She studied with Sidney Escowitz and has taken classes with McMow Art Glass and Art Glass Environments, before becoming a teacher herself!  She never loses sight of the creative excitement when she open a kiln.  She shares that enthusiasm with her students.

“Dipped In Red” by Lara Chapman

 

Lara Chapman was looking for a better way to connect with her local community when she purchased a camera two years ago, and began visiting local parks and attractions.  She found a profound love for nature photography and poetry as seen through a camera lens.  Lara has since written hundreds of poems and taken thousands of photographs and created the “Poetry Picturebook Series”.  Her award winning photographs are on display throughout Palm Beach County and beyond.

 

“Red Hot Lowres” by Lara Chapman

 

 

Lara finds satisfaction in watching her work come to life and does most of her own printing and framing on archival fine art paper.  Her photography is a visual medium for showing the exquisite beauty of nature in the world.  Her work showcases the treasures of the planet boldly and without reservation.  Lara lives in West Palm Beach with her husband, two children, one dog and four cats.
