Art Lovers And Artists Wanted At Delray Art League’s New Home At Heart Of Delray Art Gallery. New Members Welcome! New Programming And Shows!

As a new season begins, the Delray Art League (DAL) invites new members, art lovers, and the public to their new home in the Heart of Delray Gallery.  Over 20 member artists display their work together in this beautiful setting.  On Wednesday, December 18, they’ll collect wrapped art supplies, brushes, small canvas, colored pencils, and paint, rather than toys to support our community arts education effort this Holiday season. DAL has teamed up with St. Paul’s Church in Delray downtown for ‘Art Meets Music’ events.  There is an OPEN ARTIST CALL to all artists in the surrounding area for exhibit and display space available for members of other like-minded artist organizations beginning December 14 – 15 at Veteran’s Park. Members of DAL also have opportunities to exhibit at Delray Beach City Hall and the Chamber!  The Rickie Report shares all of these details, including a few sneak peeks.  This is a wonderful artist-networking organization – check it out!  And as their new slogan says, “Art Lovers Wanted”!  We add: “Artists Wanted”!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ron Rizzi, President of the Delray Art League (DAL) brings his graphic art, photography, advertising, marketing, and technology background to take this well established group in new directions.  He tells The Rickie Report, “In May, we decided to create a few new ways to reach out to our members and also to those that have a love and passion for art whether it be painting, photography, sculpture, glass, drawing or multi media. The first thing I thought of was how and who would we like to reach out to in the community and surrounding areas”.

From using Meetup.com to outreach at SubCulture Coffee in Delray Beach, to offering gatherings for demos and discussions at Jerry’s Artarama in Deerfield on the 3rd Monday of the month, there are many interaction points for artists, both striving and accomplished, to learn and grow!  The Rickie Report is a strong advocate for artists to network with each other, so we give kudos to DAL for achieving this!

 

 

 

The Heart Of Delray Gallery

 

 

The next hurdle was to find a new gallery “home”, with which Dan Cianciotto, owner/curator of The Heart of Delray Gallery” helped DAL succeed.  DAL has space in the gallery for over 20 Delray Art League Artists to display their work and call The Heart of Delray Gallery home.  On Wednesday, December 18, DAL will collect wrapped art supplies, brushes, small canvas, colored pencils, and paint, to support our community arts education effort this Holiday season.

 

 

 

Marcos Porcayo “Moods”

 

 

Mixing art and music sounded like a great idea, as DAL teamed up with St. Paul’s Church in Delray downtown where ‘Art Meets Music’ and their classical and chamber music concert series continues to be a hit. Ron says, “Baroque cello and violin, easel and acrylic paint – and we were off on any given Sunday having some serious fun without tent pegs, wind weights and mesh”.

 

 

Roxanne Lewis  “La Bamba”

 

 

 

Ron shares, ” We expect to continue the tradition of our outdoor shows around downtown Delray and as Old School Square space became a premium we were lucky to have plenty of room at Veteran’s Park. We thought it may be merrier if we opened up Veteran’s Park spaces to our neighbors in Boca, Lake Worth and Wellington and beyond. So there is now an OPEN ARTIST CALL to all in the surrounding area! We have exhibit and display space available for members of other like-minded artist organizations to join us in Delray beginning December 14th – 15th. Space is a nominal fee. Insurance rider costs are $30 per exhibitor. We will have to hear from our neighbors before December 11th to plan accordingly to accommodate those that would like to join us at Veteran’s Park. I hope they will”.  The call to artists is included in this article.

Claudia Hafner with “Sea Turtle No. 11” 

 

 

Claudia Hafner, Watercolorist

 

“Painting with watercolor is like being on a roller coaster,” said Claudia Hafner, Pompano Beach- based watercolor artist tells The Rickie Report.  “It’s painting quickly, letting go of control and not really knowing if you will arrive at the destination. “And while there is excitement in this type of painting, there is also an intimate, more quiet space where one becomes one with the subject. Watercolor challenges me to capture the essence of a subject through the brush and the fluidity of the paint, adding detail at the finish,” she said.

 

HOW SHE STARTED

 

“Shore Bird” by Claudia Hafner

 

 

Claudia may have been born and raised a “city girl” in New York but it did not take long after she relocated to Atlanta in her mid-20s that she found her way “back to the land”. Her early childhood trips to the Catskill Mountains for summer vacations had left her with indelible memories and provided her with her first tastes of nature.  Years later when she first took up weaving and then watercolor painting it was only natural that she would make all kinds of animals the focus of her artwork—exotic birds, wildlife, ocean life, farm and domestic animals as well as endangered Hawaiian birds.

 

When Claudia first went to Atlanta, weaving, was her first entry into the art world. She started as a hand weaver preferring to weave loose, draping fabric full of texture and color.  “My designs here were also inspired by nature in my use of color, texture and from,” she said. Claudia soon became an award winning weaver in the Atlanta area.  “Although my desire to create fabric never stopped, my pocketbook soon needed help.” said Claudia.

 

So, while Claudia began working full-time in the corporate world in the mid-1980s she also made a decision to return to school once again. Years before moving to Atlanta she had earned a BA in Music but said she had no intention of working in that field.  “This time I decided it was time to go to art school, so I enrolled in the Art Institute of Atlanta in the mid-1990s,” she said. “Landing a dream job in a technology company, I immersed my- self in computers, graphic design, multimedia and web until layoffs hit in the dot.com era in 2011.”

 

Freed from a 9-5 job but working as a full-time contract web designer, she joined a watercolor class as well a watercolor critique group that met almost every week for many years as a pastime.  It was also during this period that she developed her unique, loose style through exposure to several noted watercolorists including John Yardley well known for his cityscapes and Jean Haines for her loose painting style that begins without a preliminary drawing.  “But it was really the late Charles Reid whose teaching technique for painting loosely presented me with the “ah-ha” moment that had such an impact in my future paintings,” said Claudia.

 

 

MOVING TO FLORIDA /  SELLING HER WORK

 

 

 

 

 

In 2013 Claudia and her husband, Doug, moved to Pompano Beach.  And it was here in South Florida that Claudia’s entrepreneurial spirit really kicked in. “When I was a kid in elementary school, I taught myself how to make pencil portraits of the Beatles and sell them,” she said.”  Discovering South Florida’s outdoor world of festivals, fairs and exhibits—all places where she could sell her watercolors is also where she found a following among people who love animals, nature and creatures.

 

“People love animals and you can see the joy on their faces when they see the menagerie of different animals in my booth at shows,” said Claudia. “It establishes an immediate connection between us.”  Claudia said that it did not take long for her to begin to interact with these people at shows, showing her art in festivals as far north as Jupiter and as far south as Hollywood.

 

But every artist needs that “identifier” and Claudia found hers a block away from her new home on the beach. “My husband, Doug and I moved one block away from the beach and sea turtles became an immediate passion.”  Turtles did not just consume her painting but aroused an environmental “consciousness”. “I have been looking after them and participating in the protection and rescue of hatchlings during the May-October nesting season each year,” she said. “It is very rewarding.”

 

 

GOING BIGGER

“It’s been very popular to reproduce my sea turtle paintings in a large format, more than 36” in length and width, printed on high quality photographic paper and mounted between an aluminum Dibond backing and 1⁄4” acrylic glass. The colors and watercolor brushwork make these large reproductions truly unique,” she said.  “People often stop in their tracks when they see the oversized turtles reproduced in this clean contemporary process.”

 

AWARDS AND RECOGNITION

 

Through the years Claudia has been the recipient of numerous awards for her beautiful watercolor paintings including “Emerging Artist” in 2015 with Gold Coast Watercolor Society and  admission to the prestigious ArtiGras Festival in Jupiter, FL in 2016. As part of the National League of American Pen Women 2019 Skolnick Exhibit judge Beth Ravitz commented about her work.  “Her artwork brings all the important components together mastering composition and the vivid use of color balanced with the dynamic use of the white paper,” said Ravitz, a multidimensional public artist who holds a BA and MFA from the University of Miami.  While awards are nice to receive, said Claudia, they were never her goal.  “I prefer instead to develop a following through sales venues whether from original paintings or product, connecting with a wide audience of all ages.” she said.

 

OTHER ANIMALS, BIRDS

“The attraction for painting animals started with painting colorful birds,” said Claudia. “A collection of endangered Hawaiian birds became the first line of products printed from my originals that sell at the Hawaii Wildlife Center on the Big Island. Now my paintings consist of popular as well as exotic birds, wildlife, farm and domestic animals.”

INVOLVEMENT/ CLAUDIA’S AUDIENCE

 

Claudia is involved in a number of local arts organizations including the Gold Coast Watercolor Society and Delray Art League; She is also a member of the National League of American Pen Women, Fort Lauderdale Branch and the South Florida Audubon Society.

 

Many customers up and down the East Coast have fallen in love with Claudia’s sea turtles. She believes in making sure her work is easily accessible to the broad marketplace by not only having original works available but also by having giclee’s/prints and creating a variety of merchandise. “This also gives me the opportunity to create products beyond the original paintings such as tile coasters, keepsake boxes and tote bags and more,” she said.

 

 

While her main focus of exhibiting and sales has been through outdoor art shows in South Florida, her work is also available at her website:

About Young Artists Sister City Contest:

Each year, the Young Artists and Authors Showcase encourages youth from around the globe to express the mission of Sister Cities International through original artwork and literature. All students must submit their work based on a designated theme that is announced each year. Artwork is sent from member cities to Washington, D.C. where a panel of judges selects the winners based on originality, composition, and theme interpretation.

 

 

 

 

This program is a great opportunity to reach out into the community and engage local English and art teachers, and reach a student audience that may not already be included in sister city programming. After the finalists for art and literature have been announced, they embark on a year-long tour hosted by local sister city programs on a monthly basis. This opportunity is available to any city and can help expand local youth programming.

 

 

 

This year’s theme, “Peace through People,” will commemorate the 60th Anniversary of Sister Cities International by celebrating 60 years of global citizen action and impact while looking ahead toward a better future where the world’s citizens can come together and find common ground, prosperity, and peace.

Night Vision and Fluorescent Techniques

by Serafima Sokolov

Serafima Sokolov has developed a unique painting style which she calls “Night Vision”.  Her paintings reflect modern issues such as war, equal rights and theocracy.  Her newest efforts include a series about the Great Depression.

 

Even though her paintings depict struggle, they are actually lessons in survival, not defeat.  They are about the strength of the human condition. With her parents, Serafima immigrated to the United States just prior to the fall of the former Soviet Union. She has seen a different side to life.

 

Graduating from FAU, Serafima successfully developed a career in art, primarily working in oils and acrylics.  She enjoys doing murals which can be seen locally while her artwork has attracted nationwide attention.
