CLAIRE   KELLY

 

 

World Renowned Glass Artist

 

 

March 19, 20, 21, 2020

 

 

 

 

Claire Kelly’s body of work examines the relationships we have with animals and their larger presence in our world and the current environment. The result is a series of fantastical microcosms, which bring a consciousness and introspection to their decorative appeal. These glass sculptures tell and reveal a story about the fragility and preservation, within these small worlds, where the animals dwell, while presenting their role in the grander scheme of life.

MEET    LYNN   MORGAN

 

Opening Reception:

 

 

 

Friday, September 13

5 – 7:00  PM  

Artist Talk During Reception

 

 

MEET   THE   ARTIST:

 

 

 

For Lynn Morgan, creating art is an integral part of her philosophy of being consciously aware of the world around her.  Lynn has been creating art all of her life.  Until her retirement from the corporate world, art was one of her hobbies, but it was the only hobby that she never tired of.  She knew that when she retired, she would reinvent herself as an artist, and that’s what she did.  By attending classes and workshops, she learned techniques that have evolved over the years from realistic renderings to a much more abstract style.  Lynn loves to travel the world and is considered quite the adventurer by her friends.  Her works are inspired by the sights and sounds of her travels to various parts of the world.

 

 

 

“Approaching Dream” by Lynn Morgan

 

 

 

Lynn painted with acrylics and watercolors until she was introduced to pastels.  She was hooked on the look of the pastel sticks, the feel of the medium in her hand with no brush as a go-between, and the brilliant color that clings to the tooth of the paper.  She has studied with Miroslav Antic, Terri Ford, Casey Klahn, Jen Evenhus, Aline Ordman and Tony Allain. 

 

 

 

“Sarlat, Market Day”  by  Lynn Morgan

 

 

 

Lynn is now a full-time artist. Her style continues to move toward more abstraction in both landscape and figurative works.  She tells The Rickie Report, ” Before I begin a painting, I already have an idea in my head about the subject matter.  That idea is often inspired by photos taken on one of my adventures, but it is always my intention to use photos only as an initial idea.  Since color is my primary passion, I will select a color palette based loosely on the subject but more on what colors I am in love with that day”.

 

 

Lynn explains, “I begin with a loose sketch of my subject using a dark hard pastel.  Then I block in dark and light shapes with hard pastels, usually in a color complementary to my final color scheme, and usually with a very bright color for the lights.  At this point, I will wash over the entire underpainting with denatured alcohol which creates the lovely drips, splashes and patterns that I will incorporate into the finished painting.

 

 

“Mangrove Madonna” by Lynn Morgan

 

 

 

The emotion of the painting begins with the application of soft pastel colors.   She tells us, “This is where I let my awareness of the beauty of brilliant color shine.With every stroke of the pastel stick, I find delight in the tiny flecks of pure color that remain on the surface of the paper.When I think the painting is complete, I leave it on the easel until the next day, when I will undoubtedly see adjustments or additions that need to be made.I will study the piece and ask myself a series of questions about design and composition.Does the work convey the emotion I felt when I saw the scene in person? Does it convey the emotion I felt when I imagined the idea?Depending upon my response to these questions, I will then make further adjustments or declare it complete and sign it. My goal is that my work expresses my quest to consciously understand my spiritual self to participate in creating a personal and collective reality for the world around me”.

 

 

 

“Light at the End” by Lynn Morgan

 

 

Lynn has a Bachelor’s degree in Education and a Master’s degree in Human Resources Management.  She ultimately became a single mother, so the ability to support her daughter became the driving force in her life, although painting remained a hobby.  She tried flying a plane, playing guitar and piano, playing golf, SCUBA diving and sailing, but she always came back to painting.   

 

 

She is a signature member of the National Association of Women Artists (N.A.W.A), the Artists Guild of the Boca Raton Museum of Art, the Florida Artists Group (FLAG) and Women in the Visual Arts (WITVA).  She is a juried member of the Pastel Society of America.  She exhibits both locally and nationally and has won awards at several exhibits.  Lynn is currently represented by GalleryVibe in Naples, FL, and she teaches pastel classes and workshops at the Lighthouse ArtCenter in Tequesta, FL.

Fine Art Photographer, Mark Stall

 

 

 

 

Mark Stall tells The Rickie Report, “I started my fine art photography career in 2002 using high-end digital cameras, video cameras, and my iPhone, which is always close by. I love the freedom that digital offers. I use the computer and apps to enrich my images and give them new identities. My distinctive work has won many top awards at leading juried contests in Wisconsin, including the Hidden River Art Festival Eddy Award (2012), several Cedarburg Art Museum (2014, 2015, 2016) Ozaukee Annual Juried Exhibition (2016) and The Milwaukee Intercontinental Hotel (2016)”.

Mark shares, “My passion is composition in architecture, everything nautical and in nature. Every day I capture images and experiment with post-processing to create vibrant and compelling statements about the world around me. With the computer, I give a single photograph many lives, shifting focus, changing colors and making it tell a completely new story”. He is a member of the Martin Artisan’s Guild & the Palm Beach Photo Center.
