WORKSHOPS:

 

 

Stand Up To Paint Abstracts!

 

 

1-60-x-40-painting-walter-oneill

Oil Painting by Walter O’Neill

 

 

 

Paint in a vertical format in this workshop by hanging your canvas on the wall. This ensures that you use your entire body in the process of painting instead of only using your hand and wrist. Working on large canvases with big brushes, students explore composition, mark making, personal symbols, and layering. Re-energize your painting by being completely intuitive and spontaneous.  Whether your style is loud and energizing or calm and relaxed, learn to trust your own artistic urges while taking risks to create powerful art. This 2-day atelier is for expanding your reach, experimenting, and discovering. (45 minute lunch break)

Sunday / Monday, January 15 and 16
10 AM to 5 PM
Instructor: Eydi Lampasona
  Tuition: $185, Material Fee: $20

 

 

Masks: Many Faces, Many Selves

bocaartschool2-masks-by-genie-cohen

 

 

The human need to mask reveals a desire to take on other identities, transcend limitations, and be renewed, or protected. Creating masks can be an outrageously fun way to find hidden aspects of oneself. Create a mask to affirm your inner spirit or take on a new identity. Your completed mask can be worn, displayed as a work of art, or used as your private talisman. (45 minute lunch break)

Monday, January 15, 10 AM to 3 PM 
Instructor: Genie Appel-Cohen

Early groundbreakers like Mary Cassatt, Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney and later, Louise Nevelson, Alice Neel and Judy Chicago were just some of the notables that wouldn’t accept exclusion from the male-dominated world of art and art makers. As the first regional chapter in the country, the Florida Chapter is joining forces with the National association in an exciting new juried exhibit at the Armory Art Center, Montgomery Hall, 1700 Park Avenue, in West Palm Beach, December 10th through the 29th. A reception will be held on Friday, December 9, from 6-8 pm, and Awards will be given (First Prize $100, Second Prize $75, Third Prize $50 and two Honorable Mentions $25 each).

By showcasing a number of mediums, including painting, ceramics, sculpture, collage and mixed media pieces, the show will be crossing boundaries in its vision and conceptual approach as well. A number of prominent local artists will be exhibiting their works. Among them are Beth Scher, the president of the Florida Chapter, as well as Carol Staub, Grace Fishenfeld, and Janice Cohen, a past president. An added benefit to the public will be an online exhibit available for viewing after the opening reception. Mark your calendars—this promises to be a memorable arts collaboration.

The Florida Chapter of NAWA, established in 1995, was also comprised of exceptional women of vision.

Both groups, National and Florida, share the same vision. And those wishing to become part of the Florida Chapter’s continuing work must first be juried into the National organization headquartered in New York City.

“Mandarin Duck” by Nancy Tilles

 

 

Nancy Tilles is an Award Winning artist known for her oils and portraits, which hang in public and private collections throughout the country. In the past, Nancy has enjoyed exhibiting her paintings in outdoor festivals throughout South Florida including Artigras, Sunfest, Artsfest of Stuart, Naples Art Fair, Jupiter Art Fest by the Sea and many others. Her paintings have represented Artsfest of Stuart and Jupiter Art Fest for posters and promotion. Influenced by living in tropical South Florida for over 30 years, Nancy has been lauded for the rich use of color in her art, and teaches painting to adults in Palm Beach Gardens. There, she shares her love of painting with her students.

 

 

 

nancytilles222-adam-and-eve-sm

“Adam and Eve” by Nancy Tilles

“For fifteen years I enjoyed participating in outdoor art festivals where I got the chance to meet so many nice and interesting people. I made a conscience decision to stop exhibiting in this way when I downsized from a large home to a small villa. No longer could I have the luxury of working on three large paintings at the same time. My canvases shrunk from hiding me when I carried them to various small sizes that could fit on a bookshelf, Nancy explains”.

 

 

nancytillesmia-fin-sm

“Mia” by Nancy Tilles

 

 

“That also sparked a change in my subject matter. Although I loved painting fantastical scenes of underwater life, I had exhausted much of my inspirations and really just wanted to concentrate on painting from real life. I joined a life drawing group and paint from a model with them, once a week. I believe it is making me a better painter and teacher”, Nancy tells us.

“Peppers” by Nancy Tilles

 

Nancy shares,”Over the past year, I have painted many smaller paintings. This show represents some of the work I have done this year minus the paintings created with a live model . The subject matter is still evolving. I am excited to share my paintings with you and looking forward to hearing your thoughts”
