This exhibit is open now and will be on view until the June 29th, 2019. 

 

 

 

The featured artists identify as LGBTQ+, a demographic still marginalized both in public and in the museum space. This show is a reaction to a large part of art exhibitions still showcasing nearly exclusively white/male/heterosexual-identifying artists.  Just as importantly, it wishes to bring focus to up-and-coming artists using out-of-the-box approaches to their practice.

“Unshaped “continues the Spotlight Gallery’s mission to foster connection and conversation amongst the artists and their community by allowing underserved and unseen art to be “spotlighted” and given a chance to be appreciated.

Vicki Siegel in her Studio

 

 

 

VICKI SIEGEL 

Vicki Siegel’s work combines painting and photography together.  She creates images that unite her fascination with the world around her with the physicality of paint. Blending the two art forms is a process that results in images that are both real and imaginary.  The photographers gaze allows her to observe and archive reality, while the paint flows from her subconscious to her brush in marks that are uniquely her own. Siegel says, “In my work I ask the viewer to engage by comparing what is photographic and what is paint, but also what is personal and what is universal”.

Conversation in Blue” by Sally Cooper

 

 

 

 

 

Sally Cooper tells The Rickie Report, ” My artistic journey began at a young age. At that time I was only interested in capturing an image or photo-likeness.  A big change occurred in my work in 1980 when I was introduced to painting non-objectively in a Creative Watercolor workshop taught by Miles Batt.  A whole world opened and I was hooked!  I began to experiment in non-traditional ways with acrylics, gesso and various polymer mediums.  I also became extremely interested in Asian calligraphy and sought out different books on the subject.  The powerful flying brush strokes, the splashes of fresh ink/paint and the spontaneous fluid movement have been influential and I began to incorporate my own personal calligraphy and mark-making into my paintings”.

 

“Red Ginger” by Sally Cooper

 

 

 

 

It has been almost 40 years since Sally took that Creative Watercolor workshop and her work today is about a creative process rather than a specific image or place.  She works intuitively and enjoys the direct experience of the art-making – the process, the spontaneity and surprise elements of painting.  Sally shares her enthusiasm and knowledge through classes and workshops (see below).

 

 

“Everglades” by Sally Cooper

 

 

 

 

 

Sally explains, “Starting with a primed large unstretched canvas I build my abstracts layer by layer.  I start by placing triadic colors (three hues, equally spaced on the color wheel), plus raw umber, white and black for tinting and shading the colors – mix a few together, grab a brush and then follow intuitive promptings and apply a big gestural linear mark or brushstroke that comes from deep within.  These intuitive promptings are like a dance.  I quickly move back and forth applying marks, keeping some, veiling over others, stepping back every so often, studying, looking, moving, deciding which marks to keep and which marks to take away. This play or process continues until a painting evolves”.

 

 

 

 

 

“Blue Rhapsody” by Sally Cooper

 

 

 

 

Sally’s paintings have garnered many awards and much praise. Her work has been published in The Artist’s Magazine ( First Place/2017/National competition for ” Conversation in Blue” which was published in March 2018 issue);  Art Journey Abstract Painting, A Celebration of Contemporary Art (2017); Artist’s Magazine 2015 Cover image and feature article; Acrylic Artist, Professional Artist and The Artist’s Magazines.  She is a Signature Member of the National Watercolor Society and a member of Chroma Paints Independent Teaching Program for their Atelier Interactive acrylic paints and mediums.  

 

 

 

Sally teaches  Discovering Abstract Painting and a unique Expressive Abstract – Large Scale Painting Workshop at Old School Square Creative Arts School in Delray Beach.  www.oldschoolsquare.org 

She is offering a Creative Abstract Workshop in Fort Myers  January 14-17, 2019   Register at: http://fortmyersbeachart.com/workshops.php

PLEIN FUN FEST WEEKEND SCHEDULE:

Friday: Paint-out & Critique

On Friday, Feb 1, 2019 – There will be a Paint-out with Critique for those Artists who want to join in the FUN but not interested in competition. There is a charge of $20 which includes hospitality suite. Artists may bring 1-2 guests at $10/per person. Because of the popularity of PAPB’s paint-out with critique that is run by Manny Jomok we decided to make it part of Plein Fun Fest. Registered Artists will meet at Old School Square at 9 AM and decide where to paint. Critique leaders will be available to offer assistance to those who are new to plein air. This Plein Air Paint-out allows artists the opportunity to enjoy not only painting but sharing their creativity with the public. To the viewers, this art form can be very exciting because it invites them into the creative process: the sight, sound, and even smell of the artists´ world. One of the best parts of plein air painting is the congeniality of artists. Paintings must be back by 12 noon to be part of the Silent Auction.

At 12 PM all will meet again at Old School Square Field House for an Artist Hospitality Suite. From there we will break into groups of no more than 10 for a shared art critique. And, as last year there will be a fabulous luncheon buffet for participating artists. After critique, artists will have time to tweek paintings if they wish, and frame them for hanging in the Silent Auction, but they must be completed and framed by 3-3:30. Framing is to take place on tables after table cloths are removed.

Paintings from this day may be part of the Silent Auction that concludes at the Saturday reception in the Ocean Breeze room. They are not part of the judging.

Sunday Paint the Beach for FUN

We had a great time last year painting the beach, so we are planning to do so again. Like before we will at the pavilion at the end of Atlantic Ave. There will be coffee and donuts. The city of Delray Beach does not require a permit for our paint-out that could have upwards of 50 plus plein air painters but asks us not to congregate in one place. Imagine the visual of all the plein air painters stretched out along the beach. NIrvana. This is just a painting for the shear joy of it as Delray Beach prohibits selling of anything at the beach.
