In the public display Yakir-Avin exhibits a selection of recent oil on canvas artwork, mainly portraits of ordinary people, with a variety of various social backgrounds. The artists intent is to collect the feeling of the present moment by touching on human experience. Her paintings reflect her love for figurative work.

A three-dimensional interactive installation is part of the exhibition and is a new addition to Yakir-Avin Memory Project. The public is invited to take an interactive part. The installation consists of cube boxes that the audience is able to move, in order to create four different images. The Images are from the artist’s childhood album and are recreated on top of the boxes. Yakir-Avin offers her personal experience to share with a diverse audience and to demonstrate our cultural differences and similarities.

 

“A Personal Note” is curated by Marielle Plaisir, an internationally successfully French-Caribbean multimedia artist. Plaisir has exhibited in Museums in Europe and USA, as well as biennials including in Sao Paulo, Dakar, Benin, Florence and Dublin.

M E E T       T H E       A R T I S T S:

 

 

 

JANE   BALDRIDGE

 

“Storm Surge King Tide” by Jane Baldridge

 

I have had a fascination, maybe an obsession, with water for as long as I remember. I prefer to be in it, if not in than on and failing that let me stare at it. Watching my childhood sand castles fall to the continued impertinent rolling in of waves and tide captivated me. It was but a miniature version of what happens all around the globe.  I grew up in a small Texas fishing village that was underwater at the hint of a tropical storm, from there I moved to a North Carolina coastal fishing village that went under water with the lunar cycles. Now, much of the coastal areas of the planet have reason to watch their own erosion, subsidence and the rising tides reshape their world. I believe that those people who do not go out on the ocean and witness it’s power and beauty may not understand what happens with the rushing water borne on a storm. Currents, tides and runoff change the land, scouring some here, depositing some there. It can be beautiful or terrifying. This can manifest into the magic of an ox-bow forming in a river or a beach house undermined and falling into the ocean.

 

 

MALLO    BISSET

 

“Bahama Mama” by Mallo Bisset

 

 

My artwork celebrates the things that make me happy.  While my subject matter does vary, I am greatly influenced by my love of color, animals, and nature.  I have always lived close to the sea, so water and the color blue seem to be a part of me and often make it onto my canvas. When I get an idea for a painting and I can’t stop thinking about it, I know it’s time to get to work.  Often it’s these obsessive moments that lead to the best work.  The most rewarding feeling is seeing a smile on the face of someone viewing my work and nothing compares to the satisfaction of having someone bring home a piece of my work. Hopefully, my artwork makes you happy too!

 

 

CHARLIE    COTE

 

 

 

“Don’t Let Someone Dim Your Light Just Because it Shines In Their Eyes” by Charlie Cote

 

 

Cheryl Cote’ (pronounced “koh-TAY”) is a prolific, contemporary artist who lost her right eye to cancer when she was only six months old.  In 2010, Cheryl also lost a significant portion of central vision in her remaining eye to a condition known as retinal edema.  This condition prevents Cheryl from driving and reading written text requires a magnifying glass.  Cheryl is currently under the care of a well-known retinal oncologist in Miami.  She has appointments every three weeks to undergo extensive diagnostics and have an injection into her eye to preserve her vision.  Despite Cheryl’s visual impairment she recently found a way to return to her passion for art.  Cheryl hopes her artwork will bring joy to those who view it and that it encourages others struggling to overcome their own challenges in life.

 

 

LAURA    KAY   DARVILL

 

“Combo Bracelet” by Laura Kay Darvill

 

Jewelry often defines the personality and style of a person.  Jewelry By Whiticar offers you many options to explore your own “look.”.  What do you like to wear?  Are you more conservative, or do you walk on the wild side?  When you look at different selections, what catches your eye? Laura Kay is a native Floridian.  She grew up in Stuart, Florida, in a boating family.  Majoring in mathematics led to a career of teaching high school math.  After retiring, she became interested in learning sign language, and she interpreted at the Treasure Coast Deaf Church.  A traveling adventure led to an interest in designing and making jewelry.  Recently she discovered sailing (growing up was all about power boats) and is a member of two sailing clubs!! There are just not enough hours in the day!!

 

 

JAMES   J.   DEMARTIS

 

“City Scape”  by James J. DeMartis

 

 

James J. DeMartis (1926 – 1996) was an American painter of the post-World War II generation who explored a wide variety of styles and media; he is best known for his abstract expressionist works. DeMartis’ late style between the 1980s and 1990s has been characterized as “a blend of romantic realism and abstract expressionism. Landscapes, figures, still lifes and abstract works dominate his subject matter. The paint is applied in a lush impasto and lyric flowing line.”

 

 

DOT   GALFOND

 

 

“Reflections in Isolation” by Dot Galfond

 

Dot Galfond is a contemporary fused glass artist who resides in Palm City, Florida. Since childhood she has had her hands in some sort of art project; from silversmithing to stage design and construction in high school to computer graphic design and photography. Her love of glass began in 1992 with a stained glass class which eventually led her to her true artistic passion – fused glass. She loves the technological challenge and the complexity of the medium. Heating glass to its molten form; the look of fluid, moving glass. This flowing movement is evident in her body of work.

 

 

CAROL    KEPP

 

 

“Firecrackers”  by Carol Kepp

 

 

Carol Kepp was educated in advertising at the Cleveland Institute of Art and Cleveland Ad School. Carol returned to fine art and is teaching art classes and workshops at the Hobe Sound Fine Arts League Gallery and The Artist Nook in Stuart. Working with adults that have a desire to find their hidden talent has brought me much joy.

 

 

ANGELA   KROGEN

 

 

” Hanging Out” by Angela Krogen

 

 

Art is an expression of our beings! It has always been a hidden talent since childhood, as I watched my family members display this gift as architects, graphic designers and decorators.I am inspired to paint flowers and landscape themes, as I learn about viewing colors and how beautifully light reflects upon nature creating shapes and movement.My desire in artis to convey a sense of joy through this meaningful expression of nature. It is a tool of communication with amessage that will bring a sense of balance and alignment to the viewer.Colors in art bring a sense of well being.  Whether used inRealism or Impressionistic, they are tools  to impart beauty and bring about vibrations of good mood and stability.

 

 

 

LYNN   MORGAN

 

 

“Ocean Dreams” by Lynn Morgan

 

 

For Lynn Morgan, creating art is an integral part of her philosophy of being consciously aware of the world around her.  Lynn has been creating art all of her life.  Until her retirement from the corporate world, art was one of her hobbies, but it was the only hobby that she never tired of.  She knew that when she retired, she would reinvent herself as an artist, and that’s what she did.  By attending classes and workshops, she learned techniques that have evolved over the years from realistic renderings to a much more abstract style.  Lynn loves to travel the world and is considered quite the adventurer by her friends.  Her works are inspired by the sights and sounds of her travels to various parts of the world.

 

 

 

BILLIE  JO  THOMPSON

 

 

“Mable” by Billie Jo Thompson

 

 

Billie is an award winning artist who was born and educated in Canada. Billie earned a diploma in fine arts at Central Technical College in Toronto majoring in 3-D. She studied at Emily Carr University in Vancouver. While raising a family, Billie continued to paint and participated in many solo and group shows and garnered a number of awards. Billie, an accomplished mural artist, also completed a number of commissions for both corporate and private clients.  In 2010 Billie became a paint coordinator in the film industry, creating the wonderful scenic worlds of notable films including “The Magicians”, “Big Eyes”, “Continuum”, “The Confirmation” and many others. Billie also painted commissioned pieces featured in two Tim Burton films, “Big Eyes” and “Miss Peregrines Home for peculiar Children”.  Billie currently splits her time between Vancouver Canada and Jensen Beach, FL. Billie’s current inspiration is the spirit of the ocean, the skies and the natural beauty of the tropics.

 

 

 

 

 

CANDY      WALSH

 

 

“Soft Places” by Candy Walsh

 

 

Candy Walsh tells The Rickie Report, “My 14 year exploration in clay has brought me here. A place where I can display my sculpture and functional ware and promote an interest in the clay arts.
