Want To Share Your Artwork?

 

Would you like to display your artwork at The Brewhouse Gallery? We offer excellent terms. No commission for a 3-month run, and unlike traditional artist co-ops, you are not required to put in volunteer time running the gallery. For more information, send us an email: art@brewhousegallery.com.

 

 

Visionary owner, AJ Brockman tells The Rickie Report, “What is the number one drawback to a traditional artist co-op or gallery? Very little foot traffic which ultimately leads to very little sales. With this model there is a constant draw of foot traffic and nightly events to get people in the door, seeing your work on the walls. Not to mention, people are much more inclined to make impulse buys after loosening up with a glass of wine or a beer. By no means is this a bar in the traditional sense… It is more of a public house, creative space, think tank, hang out”.

 

How is Brewhouse Gallery different from a traditional gallery or co-op?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  • Huge foot traffic draw with nightly events including open mic night, singer-songwriter acoustic jam sessions, painting classes, creative/inspirational speakers, live music, trivia night, etc.

 

  • One major event per rotation, essentially an artist opening, that is heavily promoted and features all of our resident artists and their work.

 

  • No need to volunteer your time, we handle everything. With a traditional co-op you are required to commit a certain amount of volunteer time to run the gallery. We handle everything and simply call you if you have made a sale or someone is interested in negotiating.

 

  • All work will be prescreened and approved. This keeps the subject matter to a high standard and competition from fellow artists to a minimum in order to reinforce the quality of work that you are being represented with.

 

  • Want to update your space with a new piece? No problem. You are free to come in and swap out any of your work at any time… as well as inviting others to see your work at our location and scheduling special events of your own.

 

  • NO COMMISSION! (Minus a small processing fee of 4.9% on credit cards). That’s right, we are one of the only galleries that gives our artists 100% of all sales.

 

We have two sizes available:

Either our half space (approximately 40 ft.² of displayable wall space) for $150 per month ($450 + sales tax), or our standard space (approximately 64 ft.² of displayable wall space) for $200 per month ($600 + sales tax).

Both of these require a three month commitment and the rental fee to be paid in full (all three months) upon installation of your work. As of right now we are only offering a three month contract as it is part of our model to always bring in new work and highlight as many artists as possible. That being said we give all of our artists the opportunity to re–apply and be placed right back in our queue to exhibit again.

 

Please reply with what size space you may be interested in and any other questions or concerns you may have. Our next exhibit dates are from September – November.

The Artists of Palm Beach County, Inc. (APBC) in partnership with the Lake Park Library and the Town of Lake Park Summer Camp, presents a Children’s exhibit “Now It Is Summer.” As part of their summer camp experience, on July 9, 2019, a group of 7 to 12 year olds took part in a reading and art activity in the Lake Park Library. Librarian, Ileana Bell led the workshop. First she read to the children who listened attentively to the book “Now It Is Summer” by Eileen Spinelli, and then she instructed them to paint a picture of their summer using canvases and acrylic paints donated by the Artists of Palm Beach County. The kids were inspired to produce some wonderful artwork and they shared stories to describe their paintings with members of the artists group.

 

 

APBC will display their work and stories as well as photographs of their camp experience throughout the month of August in the Art on Park Gallery. Refreshments, including ice cream sundaes, will be served. The gallery is proud to be sponsoring this exhibition. It is hoped that the children seeing their artwork displayed in a true art gallery setting will enhance their confidence and their positive self-esteem.

“Mission” by Lynn Morgan

 

 

 

The Friends of the Lake Park Library are pleased to announce a solo exhibition of original pastel paintings by well-known local artist Lynn Morgan.  Lynn is a signature member of the National Association of Women Artists, The Artists Guild of the Boca Raton Museum of Art, the Florida Artists Group (FLAG), Women in the Visual Arts and Artists of Palm Beach County.  She has exhibited widely locally, statewide and nationally, and has won many awards.  Lynn will be teaching pastel classes and workshops at the Lighthouse ArtCenter in Tequesta.  She is currently represented by GalleryVibe in Naples, FL.

 

 

For Lynn, creating art is an integral part of her philosophy of being consciously aware of the world around her.  Lynn has been creating art all 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

 

 

Travel has become one of Lynn’s passions.  She started her travels with Hawaii, where she attended the University of Hawaii for one semester.  Since then she has returned to Hawaii with her daughter and also visited Tahiti, France, England, Switzerland, and several other European countries.  In recent years, she bicycled in Slovenia, Austria and Italy.  She hiked throughout Patagonia, including a visit to Cape Horn.  Also, she sailed the Dalmatian Islands in Croatia on a 41-foot sailboat.  Many paintings have been inspired by these adventures.

 

Lynn was born in a Detroit suburb, but has spent most of her life living in Florida.  She doesn’t paint a lot of Florida scenes because she says, “I see Florida scenery all the time.  What inspires me is scenery that I only get to see when I travel.”  Her early art experiences were orchestrated by her mother, a former student at the Parsons School in New York.  As a pre-teen, she was allowed to ride the city bus to downtown Detroit (imagine that!) by herself.  She would browse the stationary departments at the big department stores to find drawing paper.  As a teen, she began to paint with acrylics.  

Life took the marriage and career path, and those demands became primary.  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.  

         

 

“William’s Garden” by Lynn Morgan

 

 

In later years, Lynn began painting with watercolors and took classes with Garri Katz, Barbara Nechis and Robbie Laird.  She also took art classes at Palm Beach State College where one of her instructors introduced her 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.

 

When Lynn first began painting with pastels, she tried portraiture.  Although her portraits were well-received, she was drawn to non-objective art, and portraiture is about as far from non-objective art as you can get.  She began a period of figurative paintings, studying with Margaret Dyer, and her style evolved into a looser, more abstract one.  As her travels increased, Lynn began painting landscapes.  She has studied with Miroslav Antic, Terri Ford, Casey Klahn, Aline Ordman, Tony Allain and Jen Evenhus.  Her style continues to move toward more abstraction.  Lynn is now a full-time artist.  She exhibits both locally and nationally and has won awards.

 

“Wooded Roadside”  by Lynn Morgan

 

 

Lynn 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”.

“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”.

“The emotion of the painting begins with the application of soft pastel colors.   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”.

Arturo Avila Garcia, Internationally Acclaimed Artist, Shows Work At Art On Park Gallery

Art On Park Gallery in Lake Park, FL. will be showing  the artwork of Arturo Avila-Garcia, an award winning Colombian-American painter born in Bogotá. Chosen by The Museum of Modern Art in Bogota for their biannual exhibition as one of the most influential young artists, Arturo’s journey of self discovery through painting brings the viewer a variety of colors and images.  The Rickie Report shares the details and some sneak peeks.  Lake Park is an “art happening”!

Arturo Avila-Garcia

 

 

 

 

Arturo Avila-Garcia spent his first years of college studying psychology which inspired him to express himself by painting. After two years of embracing the notion that “reality has no limits to examine our certainties about ourselves and our community”, he changed careers to focus on a BFA with concentration on painting. In 1992 he was chosen by The Museum of Modern Art in Bogota for their biannual exhibition as one of the most influential young artists. Previously, he participated at an Art convocation from the Institute that promotes higher education (ICFES) and was awarded Honorable Mention for an installation that feature painting, sculpture and neon lights. The following year he had his first SOLO exhibition at the Santa Gallery, title “Idols”.

 

 

“Blues IX” by Arturo Avila-Garcia

 

 

With a BFA and a lot of expectations, he came to the US and has resided in Florida for 25 years. Over time, it became very clear that he was getting into his second journey of “self discovery”. He’s been earning a living through the construction, retail, hospitality and education industries, always keeping the concentration in developing a language and identity as a painter.  He uses various mediums such as pencil, chalk, acrylic and oil on canvas. Arturo, being true to his passion, has also taken on visual decorative and freelance custom paintings projects for companies like Bloomingdales and private collectors. In 2005 he graduated with a Masters in Education with concentration in Curriculum and Instruction and accepted an art teaching position at Olympic Heights Community High School in Boca Raton, Florida.

Custom Installation at Bloomingdales by Arturo Avila-Garcia

 

Arturo has been in collective exhibitions with Broward Art Guild, Boca Raton Art Guild and the Artists of Palm Beach County where he was won awards for his paintings.  He tells The Rickie Report, “The passion of how I approach the painting process gives me an outlet to communicate with people in a non-verbal level”.  He expresses himself through images and ideas relative to paint and color, to deliver a visual message of his life journey, resulting in his latest project titled “Blues”. The series is inspired by “One Hundred Years of Solitude”, a novel by Gábriel Garcia Marquez and his own personal journey.

 

“Blues V” by Arturo Avila-Garcia

 

 

He shares, ” The narrative in my paintings combines abstract realism or figurativism and magic realism or realistic fiction. I am inspired by my surroundings, elements and objects. Also by images of people and their inner sensations and sentiments. During the exploration of elements of dreams, fantasy and reality, I found the world of magic realism from García Márquez’s Macondo, where magic comes naturally, as a simple, everyday occurrence in which fantastical things are treated not just as possible, but also as realistic. Ordinary objects and events are enchanted. As the gypsy Melquíades says in the first paragraph of the Garcia Marquez’s novel, “Things have a life of their own. It’s simply a question of waking up their souls.”

 


“Grandfather Playing Violin” by Arturo Avila-Garcia

 

 

Arturo explains, “My paintings often have vibrant colors, reminiscent of the tropical colors from the equatorial location of Colombia with flowing lines like the mountain landscape, creating figures attaching the lines and forms to the composition.   This creative exploration you may think, is a contradiction between magic realism and realistic fiction.  After all, how can something be both magical and real? Magic isn’t real – or is it? In Latin America, the continent from which the genre of magical realism was cultivated, there is an attitude that anything can happen –  even miracles. My interpretation of magical realism is closely connected to my Catholic religious background, which believes in miracles and other spontaneous and indescribable abstract phenomena.  In my work this abstract element is determined by the expression and by the form”.

” Dualism has been an influence on every aspect of my artistic development, interpreting and balancing two realities. The same narrative could be applicable to the immigrant artist like myself in another country with a different culture and language… two different worlds, two realities are a continuous challenge that enriched individuality. My interest is a visual balance of realism or figurative art and abstract art”.

 

 

“Centaurs” by Arturo Avila-Garcia

 

 

 

Arturo’s artwork has been exhibited  end awarded at: The Museum of Modern Art in Bogota, ICFES (Colombian Institution for Higher Education) , Artists of Palm Beach County, Santa Gallery, (“Idols”), University Gallery Bogotá, Broward Art Guild, Boca Raton Art Guild, Artisans on the Ave., and APBC Art on Park Gallery

Caren tells The Rickie Report, “I love my work as a graphic designer and fine artist. I am always happy to be in the studio. However, very few of my projects have filled me with as much drive and energy as the “Yoga Series” and “Yoga Icons.” There are so many reasons why this series of work is deeply meaningful to me”.

• ONE: Yoga saved my life. After an injury in 2008 and unsuccessful back surgery, I was in pain and side-lined for two years. Thanks to the great training I received from my first yoga instructor, Anna Lee Sanders, and all the wonderful teachers since, I live a full, active life. This series of paintings shows my gratitude, love, and respect for the practice. I hope that viewers can feel that love, and connect with the spiritual and physical aspects of yoga.

• TWO: I can feel the body positions while I am painting. The breath work, distribution of weight, and muscle exertion are with me as I create the art.

 

 

HACKMAN-shelby-child-pose-TRR

“Shelby, Child Pose” by Caren Hackman

• THREE: Anytime that I have the opportunity to combine media or skills in graphic design and fine art, I am happily energized. Working the images back and forth between the digital world and the paintbrush on canvas world makes for greater artistic expression.

 

HACKMAN-Karen-in-blue-TRR

“Karen in Blue” by Caren Hackman

 

“The yoga artwork takes two forms. One group of pieces on which I am working are acrylic paintings on canvas. The painterly realism of the brushstrokes and lighting show the energy and spirit of the asanas or poses. To further the feeling of freedom, I’ve elected not to “constrain” the pieces in a classic frame. The pieces hang, scroll-style, from a support at the top of each painting”.

 

HACKMAN-shanti-scroll-TRR

“Shanti Scroll” by Caren Hackman

 

“The other suite of artwork combines digital painting and archival printing on canvas with hand embellished accents. I have coined this suite of paintings “Yoga Icons” as homage to Andy Warhol, who had a knack for depicting well-known personalities as “pop icons”. Warhol’s line work and use of bright, flat colors in his silk screened portraits, made an impression on me when I visited an exhibition of his work at the Boca Museum of Art. I created my own stylized color and line work in this yoga series”.

“Many thanks to my first models, Karen Burnett and Shelby Grant of Yoga Palm Beach who are my first yoga pop icons!  I am so happy to have been invited to judge the Artists of Beach County “Still Life” show and to be offered a Solo Exhibition area for my latest figurative and spiritual yoga pieces”.
