“This is an exciting launch to the 2017-2018 season,” said Lighthouse ArtCenter Curator, Janeen Mason, “It is certain to inspire the imagination and engage all the senses.”  The opening reception and awards ceremony on September 21, from 5:30-7:30 p.m., provides the opportunity for members and guests to enjoy a lovely glass of wine, sample delicious hors d’oeuvres, visit with the faculty, view the artwork and talk about their exceptional classes and workshops.

The opening of the 2017-18 season marks the 54th time the Lighthouse ArtCenter has provided Palm Beach and Martin counties a premier gallery and art school to attract visitors, vacationers and local patrons to enjoy, create, collect and relax with a unique variety of art forms.  “Our staff and faculty are ready and excited about the new season,” said Lighthouse ArtCenter Gallery and School of Art Executive Director Nancy Politsch. “We’ve all shined and polished for another year, and we’re excited to invite the community in. We have the art to make people smile and at the same time to think.”

 

According to curator Mason, many people dream of creating art, however, few are called to the profession early in life. Mason says our cultural heritage depends on both sets of people; those who start young and follow their dreams, and those who wake up one day and say to themselves, “If not now, then when?”

 

Have you wanted to try your hand at sculpting, drawing, painting or ceramics? Make time to visit this exhibition and decide for yourself where to begin the next chapter of your life experiences, check out the Lighthouse ArtCenter online catalog:

Join this Lighthouse ArtCenter family of artists who learn, laugh, create and collect together. For more information call (561) 746-3101.

 

“The Lighthouse ArtCenter has a gifted group of 35 faculty members with extraordinary talents,” said Politsch. “We are so proud to put their creativity on display to launch our new season. And nobody displays an artist’s work better than our own curator, Janeen Mason.”

 

Among the featured faculty artists are…

® Chad Steve: uniquely creative soda-fired pottery

® Chris Kling: internationally renowned portraits

® Manon Sander: colorfully evocative Plein Air paintings

® Ralph Papa: explores the unlimited landscapes of Plein Air paintings

® Jim Rigg: intriguing art with alcohol inks and watercolor

® Karen Leffel-Massengill: signature status with FWS and Society of Animal Artists

® Danuta Rothschild: provocative surrealism implies a little bit of magic and a lot of soul

® Justin White: multi-media and wire wrap jewelry

® Esther Gordon: collage with texture and design

® Alessandra Gieffers: celebrates life with exquisite pastels

® Eduardo Gomez: introduces his newest figurative sculpture to add to his fame

® Tracey Roedl: beautiful jewelry making with one of the all-time favorite instructors

And a unique opportunity to see very unusual work in the Pop Up gallery….
Kazimierz Kalkowski: one of Poland’s most prestigious ceramists

“The words of the Editor in Chief of Arts and Antiques, Barbara S. Tapp, provide a fitting summation,” said Mason. The more computerized the world becomes, the more important art is, especially that which bears the mark of the hand most clearly – paintings, drawings and sculpture in particular.” When there is a personal story behind the art, we tend to cherish the experience of creating and collecting even more.
