"Four Views Tequesta Drive" by Hugh O'Neill

“Four Views Tequesta Drive” by Hugh O’Neill

 

 

Hugh O’Neill was born in Belfast, Ireland in 1959. He studied painting in Belfast Ireland from 1981-1985 spending some of that time studying in Nante and Paris, France. O’Neill’s approach to his oil painting is direct, bold and figurative. He is a visual musician who is forever searching for the ultimate melody on canvas, an artistic pioneer and a man who survived through brutal conflict growing up in war torn Northern Ireland. Hugh O’Neill has been a modest man all his life but his work speaks for itself in grand visual concertos of timeless skill. The poet of the day and the eyes of a truly gifted artist, he continues to work in silent hues of robust color for all to see. His work is alive and worth seeking out as its energy is best felt up close.

 

 

Hugh O’Neill owns a prominent place in art history, as an important modern master who has influenced countless others. Always ahead of his time, he first pioneered the En Plein Air teaching tradition into several leading art institutions including The Society of the Four Arts and the Lighthouse ArtCenter and Museum.  As one art writer once said, “Claude Monet himself would have admired the continued strength of O’Neill’s work”.  Hugh’s first U.S. one-man show on Worth Avenue, Palm Beach, in 1995 saw a complete sell out in the first night of the show, with collectors from New York to Paris.

 

"Lighthouse" by Hugh O'Neill

“Lighthouse” by Hugh O’Neill

 

This is a must see exhibition and a chance to meet the artist who is considered by some as one of the best living artists in the world. O’Neill’s work is represented in corporate, and gallery collections. Collectors of his work include former CEO of APPLE Computers,Bank of America (Palm Beach) and two former US Ambassadors.

Margie she said this about her art: “My work comes from my heart. I have always loved creating whether it was painting, jewelry design or ceramics. When I paint I can freely express myself.

The PACE Model

PACE Center for Girls, Inc. is a nationally recognized and research based model that features a balanced emphasis on academics and social services with a focus on the future for middle and high-school aged girls and young women.

The art exhibition of “Chile in Color” will feature Raymonde’s most vibrant colors in acrylics on canvas.   Raymonde tells us, “I believe that I was born an artist because of my interest in designs and color at an early age. My hope is to be a messenger of beauty to the viewer. This is my motivation. I value beauty in nature, photographs and people. I like interesting shades of light and shadows, expressing them on canvas gives me joy.” http://www.raymondesgallery.com/

 

 

 

"Flowers" by Raymonde Talleyrand

Born in Haiti, Raymonde began doodling and sketching at a tender age. She would silence her desire to study art when a choice of career became necessary. Raymonde graduated from Pharmacy School and would get back to her artistic talent on a part-time basis. She soon got the opportunity to be a student of Barbara Minch, a well known New- Jersey artist who introduced her to different media, using the graph system and other techniques. She participated in numerous juried shows and exhibited her work with Exhibitor Co-op founded by Barbara Minch. She was a second prize winner at the South Orange Art Show in South Orange, NJ . Raymonde has also worked on commissions of children’s portraits.

 

"Fish" by Raymonde Talleyrand

Moving to Florida in the tropical setting of her dreams, she joined the Andros Isles Art Group under the mentoring abilities of Karen Knight, and became a member of the  Wellington Art Society. Raymonde participated in Palm Beach County’s Art in Public Places in 2008. Her artwork was chosen and displayed at Palm Beach International Airport.

Along with her fellow members of The Artists Association of Jupiter, Raymonde now sells her work in her own gallery, A Unique Art Gallery,  in Jupiter. Versatile and in love with strong light and shade, Raymonde is happy to express her talent. Realism with creative expression give her a special touch with any subject.

 

 

This month’s event will help The Haitian Organization for Health Services (HOHS), a nonprofit benevolent corporation functioning under the laws of the State of New York. HOHS was founded in 1993 by health care workers (nurses, physicians, social workers, health technologists, etc) who were concerned about the deterioration of the healthcare system in Haiti.  The mission of HOHS is to provide comprehensive services that will promote and preserve the health of the people in Haiti. hohs1993@gmail.com
