Gallery Managers, Maxine Schreiber and Irma Friedman tell The Rickie Report, “People find sustenance and solace, challenge and mystery in the natural world, and art has been a means by which humans express their awe of, communion with, dependence on, and isolation from nature. Artists in every medium from painting to photography to jewelry were asked to submit work which represented their relationship with or feelings about wildlife, plants, or landscapes”.

 

 

Lupe Lawrence, a landscape painter and art teacher at the Center for Creative Education and the Progressive Afterschool Art Community Education program (PACE) at the Norton Museum as well as a Lake Park resident was the judge for awards. An awards presentation will take place on March 29th at 6:00 PM. Don’t miss this exhibit!

Our Certificate of Solicitation allows us to pursue tax-deductible donations to generate scholarship monies. In December and January, APBC presented “ART by the Inch” in which the gallery sold artworks produced and donated by our members to raise funds for our scholarship program. This is a worthy cause and we are hoping for more donations, which people can provide by going to artistsofpalmbeachcounty.com or clicking on this link https://www.artistsofpalmbeachcounty.com/donations.

“Private Conversation” by Joe Friedman

 

 

 

Joe Friedman grew up in Philadelphia where he began his studies in art. Upon graduation from high school he received a four year scholarship to the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Art.  Over the years his work has evolved from a strictly representational view to a more interpretive approach.

“Tyler” by Joe Friedman

 

While Joe works more traditionally in oils, he is also fond of sketching.  In fact, he is well known for his early impromptu and then more formalized drawing classes for young adults through the auspices of the Artists of Palm Beach County.   Joe has been active with Artists of Palm Beach County and is currently President of the organization.

 

“Elizabeth’s Garden” by Irma Friedman

 

Irma has always been involved in art, from her studies in high school to the Philadelphia Museum College of Art. Always fascinated with nature, her work on canvas demonstrates her love of floral interpretation. Irma enjoys working in acrylic and her attention to detail can be seen in her sensitive drawings.

 

“Irma’s Daisies” by Irma Friedman

 

 

Irma and Joe met while each was on vacation in the Pocono Mountains. Irma and Joe have been painting together ever since.  It is fascinating to watch them working on their own artwork and one of them will stop, come over to the other’s easel and suggest ” a little more yellow”.  A marriage of artistry and love!

Artists of Palm Beach County

Announces the  Grand Opening Reception

Art on Park Gallery

800 Park Ave in Lake Park

Friday, January 25, 2013

5:00 to 8:00 p.m.

The gallery is another step in establishing an art community corridor on Park Avenue.  Mo’s Art Theatre, Easel Art Supply, and dance studios already lined the avenue, and now Lake Park and the Artists of Palm Beach County can proudly boast about the new art gallery. Come to meet the artists, see their beautiful work, enjoy a glass of wine, refreshments, and live music.

IMG_0268

The current exhibition includes the work of over thirty artists whose work represents various media, among them oils, ceramic, acrylics, watercolor, and photography as well as books of poetry. The group is made up of visual artists, writers and is open to performing artists and musicians. The gallery has co-op space available on a juried basis. 

IMG_0264

The Artists of Palm Beach County include a wide array of creators.  Beside the predictable array of  painters, glass makers, sculptors, ceramicists and jewelers, this group also includes authors, poets, musical composers – and the work you will see is nothing predictable!   The poets paint, the sculptors compose and they have joined forces to offer a nurturing, supportive sense of camaraderie.

With over 100 members, there are currently one third of them showing their work in the gallery. Some of the artists use their space for exhibition while others have their brushes and canvases at the ready and will work here.  There is a spacious area for the artist-members to offer classes which will be open to the public. There are moveable walls and plenty of electrical outlets in the renovated space.

The Artists of Palm Beach County incorporated in 2004 as a not-for-profit group.  “Art on Park is a dream come true,” Joe Friedman tells The Rickie Report.  A committee from the Association has been in negotiations with the City of Lake Park for almost a year.  “The space will feature member artists on a rotating basis, in addition to the availability of leasing spaces of varying sizes”, he explains. There are over 25 spaces available.

IMG_0267

 

Becoming a member is $50. annually and the perks are IMG_0260tremendous! Monthly meetings include sharing your work with everyone, demonstrations and guest speakers.  We don’t think you will come only for the food, but the array is truly delectable! (Some of the member-artists take their creativity into the kitchen)…

IMG_0284

Members have the opportunity to show their work at Art on Park, teach classes to the public, become a Featured Artist and so much more.  The space already has three pottery wheels and a large kiln.  The generosity of this group will extend to the residents of Lake Park as well.  Art on Park will offer one free, two-hour class to residents once a month.

IMG_0282

The Artists of Palm Beach County is eager to welcome more artists to be involved, grow their membership and begin taking advantage of their new space.  If an artist is interested in using the space to teach, use the pottery wheels or the kiln please contact Joe Friedman, President at : 561.252.4894 or go to http://www.artistsofpalmbeachcounty.org
