 Gerri wants to offer the audience a review of Contemporary Art from the Impressionists up to the 21st century, showing that Contemporary Art all has to do with artists relating their artwork to the times. Their art expresses concepts and ideas that are current and includes what the public is involved with and thinking about. Very often the general public thinks that contemporary art is out of context and taken from left field but that is not the case, at all. All in all, the lecture will heighten the experience of people who take advantage the Lighthouse ArtCenter’s bus tour opportunities.

Gerri Aurre earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Art Education and was a career Art teacher in New York. She has traveled worldwide throughout her life. Her art is about landscape, the figure and abstraction coming from the essence of those travel experiences. Aurre is the President of the North County Artists Association.

Celebrate the Artful Back Alley 

Award Winners surprise with cutting-edge paintings!

 

Twenty local artists created large-scale murals on a 200-foot long outdoor wall, while more than 300 visitors enjoyed watching the acrylic paintings come alive. The inaugural Back Alley Mural Festival was a collaborative, community event held at Gallery Square North in Tequesta on September 19-20, 2015. The murals will be on view in the public space for one month, culminating with a festive Art Stroll to celebrate the artful back alley on October 16 from 6 to 9 p.m. The event is free to members of the Lighthouse ArtCenter and to the public.

Presented by the Lighthouse ArtCenter, the festival was a celebration of the power of art in public places. “As the ArtCenter is eco-friendly, no aerosols were used for the paintings,” said Cynthia Trone, Director of Education at the Lighthouse ArtCenter. “The murals created conversation, new friendships, artistic inspiration, and fueled a growing sense of community in the small Village of Tequesta.”

 

 

 

LACMuralFlorida Faucet, Manon Sander

“Florida Faucet” by Manon Sander

 

Julie Silk Beaumont, muralist and owner of Village Art Studios, saw the potential of creating a local, neighborhood art-centered outdoor painting event for “sunbirds, so we intentionally scheduled the event before the arrival of the busy ‘snowbird’ season.”

 

  • In keeping with the easy-going camaraderie of the event, winners were chosen by Peoples’ Choice Award votes:  First Place was awarded to Mark Rupprect, a local graffiti artist and fine art teacher. Signing his work “Bulks”, he is known for his bold and colorful designs, Mark was a crowd favorite with his striking chrome, black and white Flamingo and Alligator.

 

  • Second Place went to Lighthouse ArtCenter faculty member Marta Llorens. An artist and conceptual thinker from Barcelona, Spain, Marta created her first large-scale contour painting. Her abstract portraits are gaining an audience both abroad and locally and her background in graphic arts, fine arts and historical research is apparent in her fantastic and detailed work.

 

 

  • Manon Sander, a local artist and faculty member at Lighthouse ArtCenter, won Third Place. Her “Florida Faucet” was a surreal and delightful departure from her familiar plein air paintings that continue to win her awards and a devoted following of collectors and students. It features a quote by Thoreau which captured the essence of the day, ”It’s not what you look at that matters, it’s what you see.”
