“This is an exciting launch to the 2017-2018 season,” said Lighthouse ArtCenter Curator, Janeen Mason, “It is certain to inspire the imagination and engage all the senses.”  The opening reception and awards ceremony on September 21, from 5:30-7:30 p.m., provides the opportunity for members and guests to enjoy a lovely glass of wine, sample delicious hors d’oeuvres, visit with the faculty, view the artwork and talk about their exceptional classes and workshops.

The opening of the 2017-18 season marks the 54th time the Lighthouse ArtCenter has provided Palm Beach and Martin counties a premier gallery and art school to attract visitors, vacationers and local patrons to enjoy, create, collect and relax with a unique variety of art forms.  “Our staff and faculty are ready and excited about the new season,” said Lighthouse ArtCenter Gallery and School of Art Executive Director Nancy Politsch. “We’ve all shined and polished for another year, and we’re excited to invite the community in. We have the art to make people smile and at the same time to think.”

 

According to curator Mason, many people dream of creating art, however, few are called to the profession early in life. Mason says our cultural heritage depends on both sets of people; those who start young and follow their dreams, and those who wake up one day and say to themselves, “If not now, then when?”

Join this Lighthouse ArtCenter family of artists who learn, laugh, create and collect together. For more information call (561) 746-3101.

 

“The Lighthouse ArtCenter has a gifted group of 35 faculty members with extraordinary talents,” said Politsch. “We are so proud to put their creativity on display to launch our new season. And nobody displays an artist’s work better than our own curator, Janeen Mason.”

 

Among the featured faculty artists are…

® Chad Steve: uniquely creative soda-fired pottery

® Chris Kling: internationally renowned portraits

® Manon Sander: colorfully evocative Plein Air paintings

® Ralph Papa: explores the unlimited landscapes of Plein Air paintings

® Jim Rigg: intriguing art with alcohol inks and watercolor

® Karen Leffel-Massengill: signature status with FWS and Society of Animal Artists

® Danuta Rothschild: provocative surrealism implies a little bit of magic and a lot of soul

® Justin White: multi-media and wire wrap jewelry

® Esther Gordon: collage with texture and design

® Alessandra Gieffers: celebrates life with exquisite pastels

® Eduardo Gomez: introduces his newest figurative sculpture to add to his fame

® Tracey Roedl: beautiful jewelry making with one of the all-time favorite instructors

And a unique opportunity to see very unusual work in the Pop Up gallery….
Kazimierz Kalkowski: one of Poland’s most prestigious ceramists

“The words of the Editor in Chief of Arts and Antiques, Barbara S. Tapp, provide a fitting summation,” said Mason. The more computerized the world becomes, the more important art is, especially that which bears the mark of the hand most clearly – paintings, drawings and sculpture in particular.” When there is a personal story behind the art, we tend to cherish the experience of creating and collecting even more.

MEET   THE   NEWEST   FACULTY:

 

JANET  ONOFREY

 

 

“Ditto” by Janet Onofrey

 

Janet Onofrey started teaching this summer at the Boca Raton Museum. In the fall she will be teaching painting on Fridays and an evening class on perspective drawing. Janet is a perceptual painter, painting from direct observation. Her paintings capture the specific light and mood of South Florida.

 

Beginning Drawing With Janet Onofrey

 

 

 

She seeks out the silent spaces of early morning back alleys or quiet suburban neighborhoods. Her paintings were feature in the Cultural Quarterly Magazine last summer after she was awarded the prestigious South Florida Cultural Consortium Fellowship.

 

 

Still Life Set-Up with Janet Onofrey

 

Janet is a natural teacher, she loves sharing her technique with students and delights in those moments when the students ‘get it’, when they understand her lessons on drawing and color and put it altogether.  For beginners Janet sets up still-lifes designed for students to learn how color interacts and the pleasure of successfully painting what you see.

For more information on Janet’s artwork visit her website http://www.janetonofrey.com

 

 

 

 

 

RENÉE PLEVY

 

“Racquel” by Renée Plevy

 

 

Starting in September, Renée Plevy will be teaching portrait painting using oils. In oil paint you can capture the light and subtleties of skin tone that cannot be achieved with quick drying acrylics. With years of experience teaching, Renée presents a simplified method of block out the form and building up tones that even the absolute beginner feels confident in painting their first portrait.

 

 

 

 
Renée Plevy is an acclaimed portrait painter that has painted hundreds of commissioned portraits over the past 30 years. Like many accomplished artists, Renée studied with a number of leading figurative painters in New York to glean from each of them in order to develop her own style. 

 

 

” Countess de Hoernle” by Renée Plevy

She maintained a studio at 41 Union Square and taught at the School of Visual Arts in New York City before relocating to South Florida.  In 2012 Renée founded the “Portrait of a Woman” charitable event that honors women community leaders. Renée has painted 23 portraits of the honorees include the Countess de Hoernle.
