Jane’s husband Peter Tracy donated many of her paintings to charity. “As a lifelong advocate for women’s rights and children, Jane would be thrilled to know her paintings will benefit charitable organizations that serve those in need,” said Tracy.

 

 

“The knowledge that there will always be another blank surface for me to paint serves as my ultimate inspiration. To paint is to bring joy to my life.
To paint is to touch my soul, I live to paint…with a joyful soul.” – Jane Tracy

 

 

Award winning artist Jane Tracy was a creative force her entire life. She earned her Bachelor of Fine Arts from Central Michigan University and went on to teach art in Montpelier, Vermont. In 1968 she married Peter Tracy and continued her life’s journey as an artist. Her experiences were diverse. She worked in advertising and as a studio potter Jane created functional stoneware that was sold throughout the eastern United States. In 1972 she became a potter-in-residence at the Guilford Art Center in Guilford, Connecticut.

 

 

 

The dynamic and vibrant artist opened Curious Jane’s Restaurant in 1977 with great success through 1981. She even designed the couple’s home in Branford, Connecticut, which was featured in a variety of publications. She launched her career as a painter in 1985; her passion for color, texture and movement apparent in each of the hundreds of abstract paintings she ultimately created. Jane’s art is powerful and vivid, reflective of the joy that fueled her creative process. www.JaneTracyArt.com

 

Jane Tracy’s Artist Statement:

Making art is always a challenge. The sensory involvement and visceral stimulation needed, requires a commitment – a commitment to struggle through the process – enjoying the moments of success and triumphing over the ever-present grind of making compositional selections of color, line, value or shape.

 

Non-paintings compel me to surrender to my intuition and to trust my inner-urge to experiment. The process of continually making choices and decisions– what to add, what to keep, what to eliminate, what to repeat and ultimately, when to stop–is both daunting and exhilarating.

 

The thrill of a uniquely textured surface, the contrasting interplay of warm and cool colors, the surprise of unplanned subtleties are some of the factors in my highly personal, solitary painting experiences that inspire me each time I begin a new painting. The knowledge that there will always be another blank surface for me to paint serves as my ultimate inspiration.

Color field painting is a style of abstract painting that emerged in New York City during the 1940s and 1950s. Color field is characterized primarily by large fields of flat, solid color spread across or stained into the canvas creating areas of unbroken surface and a flat picture plane. The movement places less emphasis on gesture, brushstrokes and action in favor of an overall consistency of form and process. Color field examples include using formats of stripes, targets, simple geometric patterns and references to landscape imagery and to nature.

“ This Closeup Matters “  by Danuta Rothschild

 

 

 

Danuta Rothschild tells The Rickie Report, “While I am creating my art, I step into a space that allows me to connect with the Universe…to tap into the unknown.  My intention is that the viewer will not only see carefully chosen colors, images, shadow and light, but will step with me into the magic of the moment…that they will feel the excitement of unplanned surprised that show up on the canvas.  This is the excitement that fulfills me when I am creating.”

Danuta Rothschild is an internationally known, respected award winning artist.  She was a Featured Artist at the most recent Palm Beach Art Show at the Palm Beach Convention Center (February,2021), and her works are included in “Celebrating 40 Years of Arts4All  Florida”,  a rigorously juried exhibition being shown at the Florida Capitol 22nd Floor Gallery in Tallahassee now through  March 26, 2021.  A native of Poland, she has lived in California and is now located in Stuart, FL.  Danuta’s works have been shown in prestigious museums in Poland, France, Bosnia, and the United States, where she participated in numerous exhibits in CA.  Having appeared in TV shows world wide, she has become an established artist with much respect.  Danuta’s artworks are in public and private collections throughout the world. You can see her artwork at the Elliott Museum or the Martin County Open Studio Tour taking place this weekend, March 6-7.

 

 

 

The scope of Danuta’s artistry is diverse and provocative, as they weave an historical tapestry, including her own take on the Masters.  An artist of considerable stature, Danuta created several series of paintings covering a wide range of subjects.  In her “Art About Art” series, she portrays her favorite painters (Cezanne, Picasso, Rembrandt, Van Gogh, and Modigliani) combining portraits with elements of their well-known works.  Half homage, half subtle mischief, these whimsical paintings reveal more about Danuta to the viewer.

Her art provides a sense of social commentary about relevant issues, both spiritual and profound.  It is rare to see the intensity of emotion, scope of subject matter, and true understanding of the human psyche and spirit as she sees it.  Danuta can take soul-wrenching subjects and make them palatable and magical, while allowing us to ask the pertinent questions that moves us to go deeper within ourselves, revealing new understandings.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Mixed media “Cancel Culture” by Torenzo Gann

 

 

 

Torenzo Gann’s Artist Statement tells us everything about his creative process:

I am compelled.

I am driven.

I must create!

I see art everywhere. On sidewalks, reflections in storefront windows, shadow designs falling on the ground or embracing the side of a building. I see clouds as moving sculptures.

I produce thousands of photographs. Some, to use as a reference for a painting… others because they tell a story or ask a question and invite me to create a painting.

As an artist, I believe I have a responsibility to also create works of art that bring attention to important societal issues such as chemicals as food additives, toxic chemicals used in the industrialized production of crops, and genetic engineering. I’m also concerned about the current trend in America to whitewash our history in order to oblige the politically correct community.

I feel a deep responsibility and calling to create works of art that reveal and contemplate the beauty in the everyday objects we all find around us in this amazing universe created by God.

Art is everywhere! If you look for it, you’ll see it!

I believe God has created an amazing universe! As God is the original Creator, He created EVERYONE with the ability to create…everyone! If you’re one of the millions of people who believe they cannot create or are not creative, I challenge your belief and encourage you to step out of your comfort zone and CREATE something. I believe you can do it! We all start at the beginning. Let the fun begin! Soon…you’ll be seeing art everywhere.

 

 

 

“Gate Hook, Barbados” by Torenzo Gann

 

 

 

Torenzo Gann is an internationally known, award winning fine-artist, photographer, and commercial art film producer. A native of Michigan, he majored in illustration at Kendall College of Art and Design, Grand Rapids.  After successfully completing his first year, Torenzo left Kendall to pursue his own studies in the areas of painting, photography, and filmmaking.

 

 

After twenty years of creating art, Torenzo abandoned his love of creating art to confront a personal crisis caused by his alcoholism. As a result of his experience receiving treatment and getting sober, he chose to become a certified counselor so that he could help others who struggle with alcoholism and other drug addictions. When he was able to help a patient achieve a major breakthrough, it was an exhilarating moment! He recalls “nothing I’ve ever created has given me such satisfaction and joy!” It would be another twenty years later before he returned to the world of physically creating art.

 

 

 

“Tulips and Salt Air” by Torenzo Gann

 

 

Torenzo has exhibited in several national shows and has garnered attention at the exclusive ArtSynergy/ ArtPalmBeach International Art Fair by juror Eric Weiss, Curator of the Picasso Museum in Barcelona, Spain (January 2019).  In September 2019, two recent works, “Wall Switch, St. Petersburg” and “Obelisk, Bonaire” selected by Juror, Jack Rasmussen, Director, Katzen Gallery, American University, Washington, D.C. for inclusion in the Will’s Creek Exhibition of Fine Art.

 

 

 

“Above and Below” by Torenzo Gann

 

 

In November 2019, he was one of only 54 artists selected from over 500 entrants to be juried into the prestigious All Florida Art Show produced by the Martin County Cultural Arts Council. Juror, Ehern Gerhard, Arts Exhibitions Director for the Centers for the Arts in Bonita Springs, FL. commented on Torenzo’s piece, “The Last Roundup”, as a work bringing awareness and attention to the toxic chemicals used and found in America’s agriculture, and awarded it Honorable Mention. His participation in juried exhibits and awards are numerous. Torenzo is a published artist ( Millionaire Magazine 1987, Architectural Digest 1986, Northwood University 1986, Designer’s Quarterly 1984-85, Palm Beach Life 1984-85, Kodak Quarterly Report 1977) and his artistry can be found in private, corporate and public collections.  Torenzo’s ceaseless quest for seeing and creating art is his unconstrained passion. He eagerly awaits to see what the universe offers.  Torenzo is also affiliated with the American Impressionist Society. His work can be seen at the Elliott Museum and the Martin County Open Studio Tour taking place this weekend, March 6 & 7.

Let Love Guide Your Way”by Lloyd Goradesky

 

What is Kinetic Art? Kinetic Art is a form of art that depends on movement for its effect. The word kinetic means relating to motion. Since the early 20th Century, artists have been incorporating movement into art. This has been partly to explore the possibilities of movement, partly to introduce the element of time, partly to reflect the importance of the machine and technology in the modern world and partly to explore the nature of vision.
