Amy Reshefsky Gallery:

Reflects Artist’s Eclectic Styles and Techniques

 

 

Amy Reshefsky Gallery reflects eclectic styles and techniques.  Her career as a skilled and sought-after artist began on a whim.  After Amy moved to a town outside of Montreal with her husband, who was frequently away on business, she often found herself alone in a new country where she didn’t know many people but had an abundance of free time.  For reasons she can’t explain, Amy went out, bought a canvas, some acrylic paints and brushes, and brought them back to a room that was empty except for a few unpacked boxes.

Amy tells The Rickie Report, “I just started painting and I haven’t stopped,” she said.  Trying to define Amy as one kind of an artist or another is as challenging as trying to define her style of artwork.  Her work is diverse – to say the least – and about as eclectic as you’ll find anywhere.  “Some artists stick to a certain style because that’s what they’re comfortable with but I’m more comfortable being creative in all directions,” she says. “I love to try different things and different techniques. I can attack anything and enjoy the challenge.”

 

One of her pieces, commissioned for a local synagogue, tells the story of Passover on a large piece of glass in a whimsical and almost playful manner.  At the same time, most of the abstract paintings on her gallery’s walls are reflective of Amy’s mood in when she sits down to paint.  “If I’m in a good mood, the painting will be bright and cheery,” she says. “Whatever mood I’m in, I just go for it.”

While what she’s feeling at the time drives the tone of her paintings, Amy says what the final piece of art will look like.  Always creative, Amy has never taken an art class or studied art formally. She has a fine arts degree, with her training in fashion design.

 

Her passion now is fully focused on her artwork – and on her gallery/studio , located in The Heart of Delray Gallery in Delray Beach,Florida.  “I wake up every morning wondering why I’m doing what I do,” she says. “But I have to do it. I’m driven.” Amy’s mission is to ” continually create and produce art in many mediums that reflects my inner self.  My art has a deep significance to channeling my emotions”.

Background:

 

The Lake Worth CRA developed a strategic approach to redeveloping the district several years ago. The Program to assist with this approach was called the Cultural Renaissance Program. Since that time the name changed to LULA, Lake Worth Arts. While the CRA worked on the development of the LULA program, the Agency also focused on several undertakings. These included the attraction of the Palm Beach County Cultural Council to the downtown, the attraction of an urban Publix, purchase of the 1000 Lake Avenue Building to serve as a future artist/cultural center and the awarding of over $23 Million in Neighborhood Stabilization funds for the development of workforce and affordable housing.

 

 

 

 

The development of the Urban Arts Lofts exemplifies a synergy between the two programs. The Lofts provide much needed live/work space for artists of all disciplines and safe, conveniently-located affordable housing, close to the downtown. The project was certified by the Florida Green Building Coalition. The Agency and its partners believe it is best for the City and for the long term users of these units that funds be spent on keeping the units affordable and includes sustainable materials and elements ensuring low utility costs.

Phase 1 was 12 town homes built in 2013. All the original buyers are still residents. The construction of the Urban Arts Lofts (UAL) was a true community development project, consisting of 12, brand new, two-story live/work lofts in the heart of the City of Lake Worth. The three essential elements of this project included: style, sustainability and affordability. The goal of the UAL is to provide workspace along with affordable housing. The complimentary outcomes include the development of lots that had been blighted and underutilized for many years, the development of energy efficient/green units that will help market the City and a real focus on setting the standard for quality opportunity housing within the City. The UAL is located adjacent to public transportation, work opportunities, and natural and cultural amenities. UAL is located on the corner of Lucerne Avenue and F Street in Lake Worth Florida.
