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”.

 

 

Delray Art League Meet Up

Wednesday, December 18

6:30 – 9 pm

At

Heart of Delray Art Gallery 

1440 N Federal Highway   Delray Beach, FL

Join us for another exciting meetup in December in the heart of Delray Beach, Florida. Bring Holiday  wrapped blank art canvas, paint brushes, colored pencils, or any art supply gift suitable for donation for the Holiday’s for the Delray Art League’s arts education programs in the community.

Also meet members of the group and strike up a great conversation with fellow artists, art lovers and art aficionados. Bring a smile and a friend!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Patricia Deck “Surreal Tulips”

 

 

 

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.

Don and Mary Anne Sarka’s joy of creativity exudes from their faces!  Their combined love of nature has taken them to places and environments where they are continually recharging their creative batteries. Don tells The Rickie Report, “My interest in art began many years ago, when I began sketching Disney characters as a boy and using watercolors to paint them.  Starting in 1988, I began getting Instruction in oil painting from a local artist and have studied and painted on and off to the present time.  I use oil paints because it allows me to mix and blend to produce strong colors with light and shadows”.

 

 

“Majestic Sky” by Don Sarka

 

 

 

He goes on to say, “My love of nature and its magnificent creations, causes a spiritual change in me.  The many photos taken give me inspiration to paint a particular picture. We have vacationed in many states and national parks and I have become a critical photographer, capturing the beauty and splendor of nature. I paint my version of what I see and interpret it on to canvas.  I use pictures as an idea of what I want to paint and then come up with my interpretation or theme.  I am a landscape architect and the principles of design have helped me in painting with form, texture and color”.

 

 

 

 

 

“Purple” by Don Sarka

 

 

Mary Anne tells The Rickie Report, ” My enthusiasm for painting started many years ago. Since then I have taken many classes with fantastic painting professionals and it has given me the opportunity to work on composition, perspective, colors, texture, lights and dark’s.  I paint in the traditional and representational format and my paintings can be hung practically anywhere.  I prefer acrylic. My paintings vary between landscapes, seascapes, animals, birds and flowers. I love it when I get lost in the painting process. When I stand back during this time to look at my painting, I am happily surprised and delighted”.

 

 

 

 

“Florida Wetlands” by Mary Anne Sarka

 

 

She continues, “I frequent art galleries and have a collection of wonderful painting books that give me fantastic information, guidance and inspiration. Painting opened up a whole new world for me, and has given me an awareness and ability to be creative and paint using my imagination and feelings. I have taken thousands of photographs that I use as a reference when painting”.

 

 

Award winning artists, Don and Mary Anne are members of the Delray Art League which is a juried league and exhibited in most of their events, including The Crest Theater, the Delray Affair, Delray Beach City Hall, Old School Square, Veterans Park, Coral Springs Museum of Art, Armory Art Center, Arts Garage. They have previously exhibited at the Lake Worth Art League Gallery and Arts Arena Garage (Delray Beach).

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“Waves and Palm Trees” by Mary Anne Sarka

 

 

Generous with their time and artworks, they have donated to the local community through fundraisers, art auctions, and painted a 6’ x 20’ mural by their clubhouse pool.  They have four married children and nine grandchildren and one great child on the way. They both tell The Rickie Report, “During our family times, we are seldom without our cameras to capture family photos, scenery and nature that’s around us. Painting is one of our favorite things that we do together”.

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.
