Gallery Managers, Maxine Schreiber and Irma Friedman tell The Rickie Report, “People find sustenance and solace, challenge and mystery in the natural world, and art has been a means by which humans express their awe of, communion with, dependence on, and isolation from nature. Artists in every medium from painting to photography to jewelry were asked to submit work which represented their relationship with or feelings about wildlife, plants, or landscapes”.

 

 

Lupe Lawrence, a landscape painter and art teacher at the Center for Creative Education and the Progressive Afterschool Art Community Education program (PACE) at the Norton Museum as well as a Lake Park resident was the judge for awards. An awards presentation will take place on March 29th at 6:00 PM. Don’t miss this exhibit!

 

“Spring Blossom” by Yi Yuan Hong

 

 

 

 

 

Our Certificate of Solicitation allows us to pursue tax-deductible donations to generate scholarship monies. In December and January, APBC presented “ART by the Inch” in which the gallery sold artworks produced and donated by our members to raise funds for our scholarship program. This is a worthy cause and we are hoping for more donations, which people can provide by going to artistsofpalmbeachcounty.com or clicking on this link https://www.artistsofpalmbeachcounty.com/donations.

Arturo Avila-Garcia

 

 

 

 

Arturo Avila-Garcia spent his first years of college studying psychology which inspired him to express himself by painting. After two years of embracing the notion that “reality has no limits to examine our certainties about ourselves and our community”, he changed careers to focus on a BFA with concentration on painting. In 1992 he was chosen by The Museum of Modern Art in Bogota for their biannual exhibition as one of the most influential young artists. Previously, he participated at an Art convocation from the Institute that promotes higher education (ICFES) and was awarded Honorable Mention for an installation that feature painting, sculpture and neon lights. The following year he had his first SOLO exhibition at the Santa Gallery, title “Idols”.

 

 

With a BFA and a lot of expectations, he came to the US and has resided in Florida for 25 years. Over time, it became very clear that he was getting into his second journey of “self discovery”. He’s been earning a living through the construction, retail, hospitality and education industries, always keeping the concentration in developing a language and identity as a painter.  He uses various mediums such as pencil, chalk, acrylic and oil on canvas. Arturo, being true to his passion, has also taken on visual decorative and freelance custom paintings projects for companies like Bloomingdales and private collectors. In 2005 he graduated with a Masters in Education with concentration in Curriculum and Instruction and accepted an art teaching position at Olympic Heights Community High School in Boca Raton, Florida.

Custom Installation at Bloomingdales by Arturo Avila-Garcia

 

Arturo has been in collective exhibitions with Broward Art Guild, Boca Raton Art Guild and the Artists of Palm Beach County where he was won awards for his paintings.  He tells The Rickie Report, “The passion of how I approach the painting process gives me an outlet to communicate with people in a non-verbal level”.  He expresses himself through images and ideas relative to paint and color, to deliver a visual message of his life journey, resulting in his latest project titled “Blues”. The series is inspired by “One Hundred Years of Solitude”, a novel by Gábriel Garcia Marquez and his own personal journey.

 

” Salsa Blues ” by Arturo Avila-Garcia

Arturo shares with The Rickie Report, “The narrative in my paintings combined abstract realism or figurative and magic realism or realistic fiction. I am inspired by artist like Matisse and Vermeer. Influenced by music that I found a correlation with painting. Also by images of people and their inner sensations and sentiments. During my exploration of elements of dreams, fantasy and reality, the literature world of  magic realism from Garcia Marquez’s Hundred Years of Solitude, inspired some of the paintings. Blues I and Blues II depicted a moment where the introduction to ice is a magic situation, comes naturally, as a simple, everyday occurrence in which fantastical things are treated not just as possible, but also as realistic.  My paintings often have vibrant colors, a realistic view reminiscent of the tropical colors from the equatorial location of Colombia, for this exhibit I used one primary color and one secondary color to visual balance the color composition as it is a musical composition, a blues with flowing lines like the mountain landscape creating figures attaching the lines and forms to the composition with harmony and rhythm”. 

 

 

” Matisse Blues ” by Arturo Avila-Garcia

 

 

Arturo explains, “My paintings often have vibrant colors, reminiscent of the tropical colors from the equatorial location of Colombia with flowing lines like the mountain landscape, creating figures attaching the lines and forms to the composition.   This creative exploration you may think, is a contradiction between magic realism and realistic fiction.  After all, how can something be both magical and real? Magic isn’t real – or is it? In Latin America, the continent from which the genre of magical realism was cultivated, there is an attitude that anything can happen –  even miracles. My interpretation of magical realism is closely connected to my Catholic religious background, which believes in miracles and other spontaneous and indescribable abstract phenomena.  In my work this abstract element is determined by the expression and by the form”.

” Dualism has been an influence on every aspect of my artistic development, interpreting and balancing two realities. The same narrative could be applicable to the immigrant artist like myself in another country with a different culture and language… two different worlds, two realities are a continuous challenge that enriched individuality. My interest is a visual balance of realism or figurative art and abstract art”.

Naomi Cordero, a contemporary portrait sculptor and painter for over thirty years, was born and raised in Fairfield, CT. Though mostly self-taught, this innovative artist and Palm Beach Gardens resident honed her skills at the Armory Art Center under the guidance of master portrait sculptors, Muriel Kaplan and Bert Deiner, former President of the Art Students League in New York City, who called her “naturally gifted”. Naomi also refined her painting skills at the Academy of Fine Art & Studio in North Palm Beach.

 

 

"Reina Sofia"

“Reina Sofia”

 

Within her first few years as a professional artist, Naomi’s work has been shown at various art galleries in Florida including The Frankel Gallery, The Lighthouse ArtCenter in Tequesta, FL and The Phillips Fine Art Gallery in Sanibel Island, FL. Currently, Naomi is a resident artist at Art on Park in Lake Park, FL.

 

"Paris"

“Paris”

 

Naomi’s style is not a conscious choice. It just comes to her naturally. She expresses what she feels, resulting in an intuitive technique without any preconceived notion of what will appear. What comes out of this free-form process are paintings featuring elongated faces with large, expressive eyes and a strong contrast between light and dark values.

 

"Muse"

“Muse”

 

 

Oil and mixed media are her mediums of choice. After many layers of loose and expressive brushstrokes of oil colors that are swished and dabbed by paint brushes and palette knives, the characters of her portraits reveal themselves through their facial expressions and emotive eyes. By way of surrealism and realism, these larger than life faces form an emotional connection with the everyday art lover allowing that person to see the true beauty that lies within the larger image.

 

 

"Farewell Dublin"
