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. All wrapped art supply gifts will be donated to one of our great Delray Community Centers for arts students.

See over 75 great artists displaying colorful and exciting work hanging in the Heart of Delray art gallery. See the Delray Art League’s Gallery inside the Heart of Delray Gallery and celebrate the Holiday’s with us.

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.

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.

HAEdelraymarch2016moserbooth1[1]

 

 

 

Stephen Moser tells us, “The ad in the paper said: 2 1/2 year old Male Golden Retriever, Must Go to Single Man. This is the classified I responded to 11 1/2 years ago when MAXX and I joined forces.  At that time I saved his life and years later during the midst of depression he returned the favor. Max was abused and had turned into a biter, but with patience became the best friend I’ve ever had.  One day while working in the wood shop, trying to keep busy and rid myself from a cloud of depression, MAXX came through the door carrying a 4 foot long twig in his mouth. He dropped it at my feet and forcefully said, “WOOF!” I looked at him, laughed and said, “That’s not a stick, I’ll make you a stick.” And so I did!”

 

 

 

haedelraymarch2016stephenmoser

 

 

“I walked out into the yard, picked up a piece of rough sawn lumber and brought it into the shop and put it through my saw, shaped it for a comfortable grip, and then on a whim I cut slots in the end (not knowing what that would do). Maxx was still watching me and when I finished making the stick, He seemed to know exactly what it was and who it was for. He went NUTS!  Laughing all the way into the neighbor’s lot, I threw the stick, heard the whistling noise (in the air) and the clacking noise (on impact) and the rest is history.  Because of the specialized sound that they make when they whirl through the air, and the clank that they make when they land on the ground, this is the perfect way to go out and play fetch with your blind dog”.

Lonee shares, “Blue Flame Candles are handmade with meticulous attention to every detail. We use a soy-blend wax, cotton wicks and no added dye. What sets Blue Flame apart from other candles is exceptional fragrance. Being true luxury candles, they have amazing fragrance throw and a slow beautiful burn. Delicate soft light and enchanting scents have the power to transform your state of mind. Whether you want a clean bright scent to lift you up, or a warm earthy fragrance to help you unwind, we have the perfect candle for you.

“Being a connoisseur of richly fragrant luxury candles and getting tired of paying exorbitant prices for them, I set out to learn how to create them. It took a great amount of work, many months of research, and hours of daily testing before my benchmark of product excellence was achieved. In October 2009 Blue Flame Candles was born. Today, Blue Flame is a true family run company. We continue to persistently test new waxes and oils to maintain the standard of superior quality that Blue Flame clients appreciate and expect”.
