MEET      THE       ARTISTS:

 

 

 

 

James J. DeMartis

 

 

“She Fell To Pieces” by James J Demartis

 

 

 

In his own words:   My work seems to have progressed from an earlier moody and somber romanticism to its present stage whatever it may be called. I enjoy doing imaginary landscapes, seascapes and still lifes in either oil or acrylic, or both.   I sold the gallery in 1989 and have been living clumsily. I am subsisting on remnants of earned monies from gallery sale and exhibitions, Social Security and a lifetime of meager earnings, also VA disability pension from WWII.  I have three fine grown children and a great aptitude for assimilating, learning and living and I’ll continue painting until there are no more surfaces to paint on.”
—James J. DeMartis

He was an abstract impressionist who liked to explore different styles and media. He gathered imagery and symbolism from his vast travels.  From the Rickie Report, “His oil paintings on canvas and paper, according to Ms. Crealy Pollack on behalf of the Eggers Partnership of Architects and Planners in NYC, “reflect the sure hand of a painter schooled in Florence, Italy, but associated with the New York and Maine School of American Artists. There is a mystical quality about his work which is strongly influenced by the history of calligraphy, both ancient and contemporary.” 

 

 

Laura Kay Whiticar Darvill

 

 

One of a Kind Bracelets by Laura Kay Whiticar Darvill

 

 

 

Laura Kay Whiticar Darvill began creating jewelry ten years ago.  She attended the William Holland Lapidary School of the Arts classes, has taken several classes at the St. Lucie Rock and Gem Club, and has participated in several national workshops and conventions.  aura Kay is a member of the St. Lucie Rock and Gem Club,  the Martin Artisans Guild, and the Arts Council of Martin County, all local organizations promoting the creation of art.  She is also a member of the Alliance for Metal Clay Arts Worldwide (AMCAW) and the Southeastern Federation of Mineralogical Society.

 

Laura Kay’s father, Curt Whiticar, an oil painter and a boat builder, was of great influence. She incorporates sterling silver, pure silver and jewelers gold into pendants, earrings, bracelets, rings and necklaces.  This often features gemstones, fused glass, lamp work beads and other materials. The creation of custom jewelry is a special joy for Laura Kay. Often this means taking someone’s favorite memento and turning it into an object that can be worn and enjoyed.  Much of her work is influenced by a passion for the ocean.  

 

Laura Kay’s jewelry may be found in Geoffrey Smith Gallery in Stuart, Florida, in Geoffrey Smith Artist Studio and Gallery, and in the Emporium at the Elliott Museum.  In January 18 and 19, her studio will be stop #13 on the Open Studio Tour in Martin County.  She also publishes a newsletter “Whiticar Waves” which features her art stories and events in the area.  To join her newsletter, send your name and email to the email. Laura Kay has a studio and show room in her home.  She is open by appointment.  If you wish to  visit her studio, contact her at jewelrybywhiticar@gmail.com or 772-834-6202.  Her website is jewelrybywhiticar.com.

 

 

Chris Kling

She also teaches Plein Air and Oil Portraiture in classes and workshops.  Chris has a gallery and studio in Kling Gallery, Wine & Decor in Stuart, FL and is represented by Palm City Art & Frame. Painting, to her, is reaching out to find the common emotional connection between all of us.  You may see her work on her Facebook page Chris Kling Studio and at www.chrisklingartist.com. For more information contact her directly at cbkling@bellsouth.net or 772-285-7826. 

 

 

Lynn Morgan

 

 

“Rocky Surf” by Lynn Morgan

 

 

 

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

In later years, Lynn began painting with watercolors and took classes with Garri Katz, Barbara Nechis and Robbie Laird.  She took art classes at Palm Beach State College where she was introduced to pastels, her “go to” medium.  She has studied with Miroslav Antic, Terri Ford, Casey Klahn, Jen Evenhus, Aline Ordman and Tony Allain.  Her style continues to move toward more abstraction in both landscape and figurative works.

Lynn, a full-time artist, is a signature member of the National Association of Women Artists (N.A.W.A), the Artists Guild of the Boca Raton Museum of Art, the Florida Artists Group (FLAG) and Women in the Visual Arts (WITVA).  She is a juried member of the Pastel Society of America.  She exhibits both locally and nationally and has won awards at several exhibits.  Lynn is currently represented by GalleryVibe in Naples, FL, and she teaches pastel classes and workshops at the Lighthouse ArtCenter in Tequesta, FL.

 

 

Danuta Rothschild

 

 

 

“Untitled” by Danuta Rothschild

 

 

Danuta Rothschild is an internationally known, respected award wining artist. A native of Poland, she has lived in the United States for many years. Danuta’s works have been shown in prestigious museums in Poland, France, Bosnia, and the United States.  She has exhibited in Los Angeles, Santa Monica, Venice, Santa Barbara, and Laguna Beach in California.  Having appeared in television shows in Poland, France, and the United States, and being interviewed and published in leading California publications and newspapers, she has become an established artist in the art world.

 

Danuta’s art is collected by numerous celebrities, politicians, and collectors around the world.  Her move to the Treasure Coast has raised the bar in the art community.  The scope of her work is widely diverse and provocative. Her works often weave a historical tapestry including her own take on the Masters. An artist of considerable breadth and stature, Danuta created several series of paintings covering a wide variety of subjects.  Her art provides social commentary and very relevant issues both spiritual and profound.  It is rare to see the intensity of emotion, scope of subject matter, and a true understanding of the human psyche and spirit as she sees it.  Danuta can take a soul-wrenching subject matter and make it palatable and magical while allowing us to ask the pertinent questions that take us deeper within ourselves to gain new understandings.  For more information please visit danutastudio.com

 

 

 

 

Carolyn Walsh

 

 

“Couple Kissing” original sculpture by Carolyn Walsh

 

 

 

Ceramic artist Carolyn Walsh was born and raised in Miami, Florida.  At a young age,  she was inspired by her Aunt Jean, a ceramic sculptor.  Even though her life took another direction, she always longed to be a working artist.  In 2003, she began working and learning at the Pottery of Carlee Weston and Friends, honing her craft for the last 17 years. Since then, she has shown her work at Molly’s House, the Lighthouse ArtCenter, the Beanie Backus Gallery Best of the Best Show, along with several other pop up shows through the Martin Artisans Guild. She has won several awards and is opening her own studio at her ranch in Palm City in 2020.
