“Dipped In Red” by Lara Chapman

 

Lara Chapman was looking for a better way to connect with her local community when she purchased a camera two years ago, and began visiting local parks and attractions.  She found a profound love for nature photography and poetry as seen through a camera lens.  Lara has since written hundreds of poems and taken thousands of photographs and created the “Poetry Picturebook Series”.  Her award winning photographs are on display throughout Palm Beach County and beyond.

 

“Red Hot Lowres” by Lara Chapman

 

 

Lara finds satisfaction in watching her work come to life and does most of her own printing and framing on archival fine art paper.  Her photography is a visual medium for showing the exquisite beauty of nature in the world.  Her work showcases the treasures of the planet boldly and without reservation.  Lara lives in West Palm Beach with her husband, two children, one dog and four cats.

Artwork by Ralph Papa

 

 

Beginning in the 1980’s Ralph began painting on location in the Hudson Valley and the Hamptons on Long Island and since 2002 in Palm Beach County. His subjects are from nature, life experiences and personal reflections of family and friends. In addition to plein air painting, Ralph does studio paintings, many of them larger than life faces creating pensive moods with feelings of isolation and loneliness. His most recent studio works are real and imaginative compositions that link him visually with artists he admires.

 

 

“Loxahatchee” by Ralph Papa

 

Ralph Papa is a passionate art activist, teaching drawing, painting and plein air workshops throughout Palm Beach County. As an art instructor he believes that a fine visual artist must be able to accurately reproduce images with minimum effort which will give them a better chance of success if they are true to who they are in creating something unique.

 

“Sunday Morning Sun” by Ralph Papa

 

 

Ralph is a Signature Member and Past President of the Artists Guild of the Boca Raton Museum of Art and co-founder of Plein Air Palm Beach. His work is in many private and public collections in the United States, Canada and Europe. His art is on display locally at The Neighborhood Gallery in Boynton Beach.  Ralph tells us,“As an artist, I find the process of creating a fine artwork highly energizing and even more fulfilling then the end product”.
