Apollonia was born in Mainz, Germany in 1935 and managed to survive Mainz being reduced to a burned out cinder by the Royal Air Force. Apollonia came to New York in 1956. In 1974 she moved to the Island of Bermuda and continued to extensively travel the world, painting in several countries. Apollonia now makes her home in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida, and Niederheimbach, Germany.

Apollonia is a graduate of the Metropolitan Institute of Design. Apollonia has painted with Luce Felts in Palm Springs California, participated in workshops throughout Europe and the United States painting with Ted Baxter, Charles Movalli, Theodore Goerchner, Stanley Maltzman, Hugh O’Neil, and Keith Ward.

 

 

 

“Abstract” by Apollonia Heim Silver

 

 

Having been semi-retired for several years, Apollonia has, with the recent opening of her new studio in Germany, resumed her passion for painting and exploring the abstract world as only she sees it. Apollonia’s primary medium is oil and occasionally watercolor. Apollonia’s unique impressionistic style has become recognized for her ability to blend vibrant colors into her landscapes and still life works. Apollonia sees the world in her own, very different way, so when observing Apollonia’s works, one is able to have a unique glimpse of the world as only Apollonia sees it, in a contemporary and semi-impressionistic way. Apollonia is a member of the Art Society of Bermuda and Southampton and of the Artists of Palm Beach County.

NEWpage3Meet and Greet Invite with Hugh O'Neill

 

 

Hugh O’Neill was born in Belfast, Ireland in 1959. He studied painting in Belfast Ireland from 1981-1985 spending some of that time studying in Nante and Paris, France. O’Neill’s approach to his oil painting is direct, bold and figurative. He is a visual musician who is forever searching for the ultimate melody on canvas, an artistic pioneer and a man who survived through brutal conflict growing up in war torn Northern Ireland. Hugh O’Neill has been a modest man all his life but his work speaks for itself in grand visual concertos of timeless skill. The poet of the day and the eyes of a truly gifted artist, he continues to work in silent hues of robust color for all to see. His work is alive and worth seeking out as its energy is best felt up close.

 

Hugh O’Neill owns a prominent place in art history, as an important modern master who has influenced countless others. Always ahead of his time, he first pioneered the En Plein Air teaching tradition into several leading art institutions including The Society of the Four Arts and the Lighthouse ArtCenter and Museum. As one art writer once said, “Claude Monet himself would have admired the continued strength of O’Neill’s work”. Hugh’s first U.S. one-man show on Worth Avenue, Palm Beach, in 1995 saw a complete sell out in the first night of the show, with collectors from New York to Paris.

 

 

Hugh tells The Rickie Report, “En Plein Air International (EPAI) promotes both nationally and internationally, a heightened visual appreciation of beautifully important locations. We further enjoy that exquisite beauty and history by sharing with the public our passion, deep knowledge and experience through lectures, art exhibitions art workshops, and cultural travel of only the highest quality. We are perfectly located on the historic Center street, Jupiter Florida just minutes from I95 and A1A. Close to the coast, great eateries and easy to find”!

Plein Air describes the act of painting outdoors and was first practiced by the Impressionist Masters Monet, Pissarro and Renoir during the mid-1800’s.  With the introduction of oil paints in tubes, painters ventured outdoors to directly study the effect of diffused light.  Today, plein air paintings are still viewed as masterpieces which capture the fleeing effects of light, shadow & passing cloud formations. Typically completed in three hours, plein air paintings are completely unique in subject, style and execution.  No longer confined to oil painters, plein air attracts artists of all mediums – acrylic, watercolor and pastel – and each type uniquely captures the essence of the moment.
