Manon Sander

 

The Art Society is thrilled to have Manon Sander as their guest speaker for this meeting. Manon, born and raised in Berlin, Germany, holds an MBA, and began her career in finance, but always pursued creative outlets such as mosaics and jewelry making in her free time. She moved with her husband to the United States in 1995 and started a family. Since her banking career was at a natural pause, she began to follow her passion for art. She spent the next decade attending workshops, an atelier, and learning from well-known impressionists, developing her own contemporary, recognizable style. Manon says that, while the subject of a painting is inspiring, “it is to me of greater importance to capture the effect of light on a subject and the feeling it evokes as I put down my impressions in interesting patterns, luminous color, and juicy brush strokes”.

 

 

 

“Full Immersion” by Manon Sander

 

 

 

Today Manon has made a name for herself with nationally recognized shows, awards and teaching engagements. She recently placed 3rd in the overall competition at Sedona Paint Out as well as 3rd in the quick draw competition and was awarded lifelong signature status this year by the reputable National Oil & Acrylic Painters’ Society.  

 

 

 

“Falling For You” by Manon Sander

 

 

Manon’s work can be seen at Contemporary Art on Park in Winter Park, FL, as well as at Lost Art Gallery in St. Augustine, FL, and the Village Art Studios in Tequesta, FL. She also is participating in the Faculty Exhibition at the Lighthouse ArtCenter in Tequesta, FL which runs until December 11th. 

 

 

“Kaleidoscope” by Manon Sander

 

 

Manon teaches a weekly plein air class through the Lighthouse ArtCenter in Tequesta and occasionally offers Zoom online workshops. She will hold a two-day studio workshop on Amelia Island on January 28-29. Manon also enjoys organizing artist retreats and workshops such as her Tuscany Retreat next spring, and Vermont and Santa Fe in the Fall. She loves planning it down to the smallest detail to make it a fantastic experience for everyone who travels with her.

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”!
