Sharon Koskoff with Delray Beach mural

 

 

 

Sharon Koskoff, “The Duchess of Deco”, is a full-time professional artist and published author known for her Decometric Murals, graphic designs, public art installations and love of Art Deco architecture. Her love for art began when Koskoff was a young girl, playing with the sewing machines and fabric scraps in her father’s ladies’ blouse factory. When she was 14 years old, her newly married older sister asked her to paint a mural in her apartment. That was the beginning of a now 40-year long career of painting public murals.

Her most recent book, Murals of the Palm Beaches is the winner of a silver medal from the Florida Book Awards (FBA) in Tallahassee for Visual Arts, as well as a silver medal from the Florida Authors and Publishers Association (FAPA) in Orlando for Education. This book tells the history of large-scale murals and explores how public art has helped to revitalize downtowns and create landmarks in Palm Beach County.

 

 

 

Koskoff works exclusively in acrylic, water-based paints for her public murals. She also creates collage and public art installations using found objects. Koskoff says that she likes to “…collect things that I know one day will be useful to me… I can see the potential in someone else’s discards.” She draws her inspiration from teaching, embracing the challenges of new commissions and working within her community.

 

 

Sharon Koskoff’s book, “Art Deco of the Palm Beaches”

 

 

Koskoff is a Muse Award Winner for Arts Educator of the Year 2014-16 from the Cultural Council of PBC. She is a well-known tour guide and lecturer on the architecture and styling of Twentieth Century design as seen in her book, Art Deco of the Palm Beaches.  Mentored by Miami Beach’s “Queen of Art Deco”, Barbara Baer Capitman, she is the founding president of the Art Deco Society of the Palm Beaches (ADSPB), a non-for-profit historic preservation organization established in 1987, celebrating 34 years of service.

 

 

 

 

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.

Chris tells The Rickie Report, “Being an artist is not just my career. It is an integral part of who I am and is something that I am compelled to do. I work in oil primarily in a traditional manner but with a contemporary flair through color, composition, value, and application of paint. Color sings to me and I try to use its harmony to evoke an emotional connection with others.  I love to paint plein air which helps my studio work retain an authenticity that only comes from observation of life.  Painting, to me, is reaching out to find the common emotional connection between all of us.”

Chris has received numerous awards for her landscapes and portraiture through the United States and with the portrait Society of America. She has been honored with back to back “Best of Show” awards in festivals and competitions.

Anita Lovitt Offers Special Color Temperature Workshop Sponsored By Palm Beach Watercolor Society. Open To Members And Non-Members On April 17. Register Now As Reservations Are Being Filled

Anita Lovitt‘s watercolor teaching combines years of professional experience with a facility for imparting information and a subtle wit. Her desire is to help a student understand techniques “but not be contented with the technique itself.” She challenges both the most tentative students and those already skilled to bring out their best and develop their own unique style.  Because so many of her students have struggled to understand which colors are “warm”, which are “cool” and why, Anita created this workshop to explain it.  The Palm Beach Watercolor Society is offering Anita Lovitt’s Color Temperature Workshop on Saturday, April 17 and has opened it to non-members as well as members.  If you’ve never been clear on this topic, or would like to know how considering it can improve your work, this is the workshop to sign up for! The Rickie Report shares the details of the workshop and focuses on Anita’s own award winning artistry while giving you a glimpse at her students’ work as well.  Our interview with Anita follows the workshop details.

STUDENT WORK from Anita Lovitt’s watercolor classes

“Ms. Lovitt’s artwork demonstrates an extraordinary and wide ranging understanding of graphic design and painting.She possesses a unique personal vision and demonstrates it with skill and intelligence.”—Milton Glaser, Dean, Yale School of Art

 

What Anita’s students have to say:

“One look at my work today and you can see a working process that employs a series of techniques that I could not have imagined before Anita’s teaching.  Still “my” style, just better! “
 — Linda Hurley

“Anita Lovitt has helped me to understand the mysteries of watercolor painting. Her warmth and caring comes through her presentations.” — Helen Weisberg

“I could go on and on about how Anita has helped me become a better painter. She is very patient, encouraging and supportive and gives us critiques of our work in a non judgemental way.   I have had other teachers but Anita is the BEST.”— Carol Hirsch
“I love Anita’s classes because of the variety of subjects and painting style challenges that she incorporates. Because she is flexible in presenting each lesson, it doesn’t matter how much painting experience you have. In addition, Anita’s positive teaching and coaching style creates a welcoming community of artists in which the work of all participants is appreciated.”
—Mary Martinez

 

 

TRR: You are a multi-discipline artist and visionary. Can you tell us more about your background?

AL:

I was born and raised in Philadelphia and went to Penn State University to major in chemistry. I had always wanted to be a scientist. After taking a summer art class I decided to transfer to Philadelphia College of Art, where I majored in illustration. After graduating, I was hired by Hallmark and moved to Kansas City, MO.

 

I was assigned to an innovative department called “Special Projects.” It was exciting to meet artists from all over the country and get any supplies we wanted for free (a great way to learn about supplies), plus we got our work printed! In color! right after graduating, which could be challenging back then before digital printing. Also, while I was living in the Midwest, I got interested in quilts as an art form. In the 70’s, Hallmark was very conservative, so I did not get a real chance to shine. After a few years I left and went to study theater arts in nearby Lawrence, Kansas.

TRR: There is a theme in your life of being on a certain path and yet being open to exploring and following a new offshoot. Please tell us more!

AL:

At the University of Kansas, my primary instructor was James Gohl, who had been Master Painter for Boris Aronson, the designer of such Broadway hits as Zorba, Follies, Pacific Overtures, and many others. Jim had extremely high standards. For each project, we had to consider the script, costumes, props, history, set design, scene painting, lighting and more. He made us work hard, and I learned a lot about many different arts.

 

In 1976, I moved to New York City intending to seek theater work or illustration. One of my motives was to take Milton Glaser’s “Design and Personality” class at the School of Visual Arts. Milton had been a hero of mine since art school. I wish I could convey to you the magical sound of his voice, almost like a stringed instrument. He was brilliant and witty. After his class I thought of myself as not only an illustrator but a designer—someone capable of many types of projects. Milton particularly admired my quilted pieces—maybe because that was one thing he didn’t do!  

 

 

 

BEE PANIC ©Anita Lovitt. Cotton, fusible interfacing

 

 

Illustration was a difficult, freelance business, not as open to women in those days as it is now. Theater work usually required “paying your dues” (i.e. working for free) and had a union that was hard to get into. So in 1988, I became Graphic Design Coordinator for the Public Theater/New York Shakespeare Festival in New York City under Joseph Papp. Joe did not consider 3D art as exciting as 4D, i.e., theater. And I got to see a lot of theater. My ideas became more extra-dimensional. I was trained on a Mac Classic, and my digital career began.

 

 

With the stability of a regular art job, I was able to take classes in digital media, illumination, calligraphy, puppet making, lettering, photography, quilting, not so much painting at this time. Around then, a fellow puppeteer gave me a bunch of jewelry parts that his sister, who had passed away, had left. These little enameled metal pieces were like candy. I began constructing mobile jewelry and from the very beginning it was popular and sold in many museum shops. My gift for the small complimentary statement had translated over from greeting cards.

TRR: How did your move to Delray Beach lead you to become involved in Art In Public Places?

AL:

In 2001, I sublet my Manhattan apartment and moved to Delray Beach to spend more time with my mother. Two weeks later came 9/11. I couldn’t find work in publishing, so I stayed and started teaching watercolor painting. I started working on a calendar idea with the late Susan Keleher, program manager for Pineapple Grove Main Street, Inc. Sue had heard about a competition for a grant to do a mural at the south entrance to the Grove and persuaded me to enter. And I won!

 

 

 

DANCING PINEAPPLES ©Anita Lovitt. Mural, looking south

 

 

 

TRR: The mural is hard to miss at 137 East Atlantic and has become a destination for selfies. Its large- scale patterns, vivid colors and vibrant imagery of dancing pineapples announce to visitors that this part of town is serious about the arts. The challenge was to make the painting visible from a distance but also appreciable from close up. Using your knowledge of set design, you took a picture of the site and laid in the images with Photoshop before beginning. It was completed in October 2008 with the assistance of Benjamin Moore, who donated the paint. “It’s like a landmark,” you said. “I’m honored and happy that people like it.”

 

AL:

I had never done a mural. Nor did I have the needed equipment. My mother had recently died, and I thank my art-loving therapist Dan Lobovits who believed I could and should do this project, using my theater arts experience. Part of this mural’s appeal is that I approached it like a watercolorist: I put the light yellow down first and painted everything over it. If I had painted the darker orange first and then tried to put the yellow over it, it would not glow like it does!

 

 

 

PRAYERS FOR LAKE O. Handwritten prayers on cotton. Designed by Anita Lovitt

 

 

TRR: Following a devastating hurricane season in 2005-6, you worked as a hurricane crisis counselor with Project Hope, supervising teams to create large legacy quilts documenting the effects of the hurricane experience on communities in Palm Beach County. One of the quilts you did with your team is called “Prayers for Lake O.” You tied the lake down with knotted threads and prayers so “it wouldn’t overflow.” The therapeutic effect of creating something new, after having lost one’s possessions is deeply empowering.  Once people can realize that despite their loss they still have a creative spark within them, they are reassured that life will go on.

 

AL:

These quilts now hang in public buildings in Palm Beach County, including the Emergency Operations Center.

 

I served on the Public Art Advisory Board of Delray Beach for 4 years. My “ArtFans” marketing campaign featured the artwork of other Delray Beach public artists. The wood and paper fans were wildly popular and were distributed at free events to promote good will and offer information about art in Delray Beach and the PAAB. They were biodegradable so I wasn’t creating more trash, but we never saw one thrown away.

TRR : And you also produced a coloring book?

 

 

SHOEFIRMATIONS ©Anita Lovitt 2015 Coloring book

 

 

AL:

Yes, in 2015, I self-published my first book, “Shoefirmations,” an inspirational coloring book. Each page featured a drawing of a shoe to color and an affirmation that was somehow related. I was just ahead of the surge of adult coloring books!

 

 

 

RADICAL JEWELRY MAKEOVER  Recycled Jewelry by Anita Lovitt

 

 

Last year I participated in the Radical Jewelry Makeover (RJM) project at the Lighthouse ArtCenter. This is a movement to recycle old broken and discarded jewelry—right up my alley, as my motto is “Straw into Gold”! While the opening was canceled due to COVID last March, the RJM show went up late this winter. I am honored to have some of my designs included! The show is up until March 20.

 

 

 

WATER LEAF DREAM ©Anita Lovitt, Watercolor

 

 

 

TRR: Your watercolor classes taking place on Zoom are very popular and the Palm Beach Watercolor Society just hired you to offer a Workshop in April. Tell us about your classes.

 

AL:

 

Since 2002, I have taught watercolor painting in Florida. I developed my skills in workshops with with Charles Reid, Mel Stabin, Skip Lawrence and others. My classes typically consist of a demo, followed by personal attention during the class time, followed by a supportive critique by the class. I also created a Facebook page, Anita Lovitt’s Watercolor Class Student Gallery, where current and former students can interact and comment on each other’s work. This has been a welcome addition, especially during COVID.

 

 

My involvement with the Palm Beach Watercolor Society (PBWS) includes service as Publicity Coordinator, Recording Secretary, and organizer of annual Paint-Arounds. At the Member Luncheon last March, I gave a presentation comparing taste in food with taste in art which was well-received. I am a Signature Member and recently won a second-place prize at the group’s show in Patch Reef Park. For me, it is not about the competition but more about the camaraderie of spending time creating with others. The process of creating while networking professionally helps everyone involved grow.

 

Camera shot of Zoom Class Student artworks with Anita Lovitt

 

Pre-COVID, I taught at local communities and cultural centers. The pandemic forced me to begin teaching on ZOOM. Surprisingly, I found that I liked it a lot and could deliver a great class to more people, some of them living as far away as Vermont and California. Many students have told me the class was the high point of their week, providing encouragement and socialization along with instruction during a challenging period. A number of students had some trouble understanding color temperature, which resulted in this workshop designed to explain it. My current classes include retired teachers (through the United Federation of Teachers). It is deeply gratifying that these teachers enjoy my classes so much, since I was not trained to be a teacher.

 

 

TRR: We can see the depth of your knowledge and have a sense of your multiple abilities!  What else should our readers know about you?

 

AL:

I offer original and custom paintings, prints, surface design, mini-murals, workshops and classes in painting and drawing, as well as consultation and speaking about art.

She has worked with numerous institutions, organizations and programs teaching art appreciation, enrichment, history and technique to children and adults alike.  She has worked in at-risk communities and juvenile prisons as well as public and parochial schools in New York City and South Florida. Trina has also been involved in the public art schools of the Palm Beach County School District, BAK Middle School of the Arts and Dreyfoos High School of the Arts; helping young artists prepare for auditions.

Trina has been honored with many awards and grants over the years including Women of Excellence in the Arts. Recently, she was selected as one of the artists to be featured in The Commons: 15 Artists, 15 Spaces Project. Her interactive installation at The Commons will be on exhibit at Coleman Park in West Palm Beach until June. She is also presently working on a series of collaborative workshops on the therapeutic use of art and music for treating mental illness.

Sagger fired pottery by Barbara Powell

 

 

Originally from Western Massachusetts, Barbara’s professional career focused on environmental protections. She is now centered on clay and enjoying the local south Florida art scene. Barbara gets her inspiration from “nature and the ancient forces of water and time on the varied geology.”  About her process she says, “I mostly wheel-throw my pottery and depending on the surface of the clay and firing methods, I can create either brilliant dimensions of color or subtle earthly palettes. I love working between these two extremes.”  She muses that even after working in this medium for many years and developing an in-depth knowledge of the materials, “the final outcome will always remain largely unforeseen – as the fire itself has the final signature”.

 

 

 

Raku Vessel by Barbara Powell

 

 

In addition to working at her home studio, Barbara teaches wheel-throwing classes at the City of Palm Beach Gardens, Hand-Building classes at the Wycliffe Gold Resort in Wellington and workshops at the Lighthouse ArtCenter in Tequesta, FL.

 

 

 

Ceramic Pot by Barbara Powell

 

 

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, most of Barbara’s classes are temporarily on hold. However, she is offering several fun “Fire Friday” events at the Lighthouse ArtCenter. Most of the work is done in an open-air environment, since a kiln is used. For more information about “Fire Friday” and many more fun opportunities, please visit https://www.lighthousearts.org/select-fridays.html.

 

 

Barbara is a previous director for the Wellington Art Society, Wellington, FL and Women in the Visual Arts, Boca Raton, FL.  Currently, she is a member of the Ceramic League of the Palm Beaches, the Lighthouse ArtCenter in Tequesta, and the Partners for Art and Design in Miami, FL.

VIRTUAL ARTIST in RESIDENCE

December, 2020

 

Paul M. Murray

Visual traveler and photographic artist based in Rhode Island.

Paul discusses the inspiration for his photographic journeys below.

 

 

 

 

 

“Morning Trek to Water” Photograph © 2021 Paul Murray. All Rights Reserved.

 

A daily dawn trek to the watering hole is the reality of life for these zebras.

“Staying instinctive, remaining vigilant and working the opportunity are critical. When in doubt, I do something different or unexpected.”

 

 

 

Exploring Antarctica 2011. © 2021 Paul Murray. All Rights Reserved.

 

“To the extent that my images enrich the experience and vision of others, I feel that I have achieved a way of communicating that is unique to me as a photographer.”

 

 

 

 

Exploring the Arctic

 

As global warming increases, the Arctic and its inhabitants are in danger. The melting of sea ice shrinks the area in which polar bears and walruses can hunt and take shelter. Even to the extent the refreezing occurs, the ice is less stable and still covers a smaller area.

 

 

“A Family Float” Photograph © 2021 Paul Murray. All Rights Reserved.

In the Arctic, ice floats offers walruses a safer alternative to land for rest and access to food.

“Often the story telling aspects of the photographic art form capture my attention and motivate a series of related images.”

 

 

“My World” Photograph © 2021 Paul Murray. All Rights Reserved.

The sea ice in the Arctic is shrinking as global warming increases. That creates a serious problem for polar bears.

 

 

 

 

“A Whale for a Snack” Photograph © 2021 Paul Murray. All Rights Reserved.

 

 

In the far Norwegian Arctic, food is scarcer than it has been ever. Polar bears try to get every bit of food from whatever they catch or encounter.

 

 

 

 

“I’m Still Hungry” Photograph © 2021 Paul Murray. All Rights Reserved.

 

For this high-end predator, food is a continual challenge. A polar bear consumes about 43 seals a year, but the polar bear can only hunt for a part of that year. Not only is weather and cold an issue, but the Polar winter brings total darkness.

 

 

 

 

“Forced to Land” Photograph © 2021 Paul Murray. All Rights Reserved.

 

When forced to land, polar bears face a much tougher challenge in getting food. Seals are not there. In their quest for food, the bears sometimes end up in villages. That is not a winning strategy for the bear.

 

 

 

Photographic Journeys in Namibia

 

 

In southwest Africa, Namibia is a challenging land where adaptation is necessary for survival, the country’s summer sun is strong, and water is scarce. Enormous sand dunes rise from clay-caked, dry river pans. Despite the dryness and heat, trees and grasses find enough water and nutrients to grow. For the wild animals like giraffes and zebras, the watering holes are essential to daily life, and the trips to them are slow, dusty, and dangerous.

 

 

 

 

“Watering with a Flair’ Photograph © 2021 Paul Murray. All Rights Reserved.

 

For most life, water is essential. Often giraffes acquire it with a flair at a watering hole at dawn.

 

 

“Color, light, and gesture are important elements in my work.”

 

 

My use of these varies intrinsically across landscapes, nature, people, and culture. My choices of timing, perspective, and composition are intended to draw the viewer into the setting and moment. Often, I try to pattern my pursuit of opportunities to the natural tempo of what I see.

Although my perspective is predominantly reality-based, I acknowledge not only the subjective nature of what I portray in my images, but an interest in pursuing at times more abstract images.

 

 

 

 

“Enormity” Photograph © 2021 Paul Murray. All Rights Reserved.

 

As these Namibia dunes rise sharply from the dry riverbed to great heights, the setting sun creates intriguing light gradients and sharp shadows across their wind-swept surface and breaks.

 

 

 

“Power” Photograph © 2021 Paul Murray. All Rights Reserved.

 

Traveling in herds, elephants are a dominant and powerful presence wherever they are.

 

“Alert” Photograph © 2021 Paul Murray. All Rights Reserved.

 

 

One of the smallest members of the antelope family, dik-diks, live predominately on plants. Given their small stature, their alertness and speed are important advantages in their survival.

 

 

Why Paul Entered the ENDANGERED Fine Art & Photography Contest:

Click for VIDEO

 

 

 

“In creating art, I try to remain open to possibilities, trust my instincts, and discard labels that are divisive. I use technology to increase my creative options and productivity, but not to replace my vision and responsibility. While not intending to create a style, others tell me they perceive one although descriptions of that style often vary. I feel this indicates my art has been well-considered and engages viewers in unique ways”.

 

 

 

 

© 2021 Paul Murray. All Rights Reserved.

 

 

“As an artist, I hope my images engage the viewer’s attention and interest, and perhaps enrich their experience and vision. To the extent this happens, I feel my art communicates in a way that is unique to me”.
