Acrylic Painting by Maxwell Taylor

 

 

 

Maxwell was born on New Providence Island, Bahamas.  His artistic talent was discovered as a young schoolboy and early in life he was apprenticed to the fabled Chelsea Pottery.  He later moved to New York and studied at the Art Students League of New York and took further studies in photo silkscreen at the Pratt Graphic Center and printmaking at The Printmaking Workshop.  His uncompromising commitment to black power artists is evidenced in his woodcuts, etchings and stark canvases.  He admired and was influenced by Daumier, Braque and Picasso.

 

Wood cut print by Maxwell Taylor

 

 

 

Maxwell left New York after 20 years and traveled to South Carolina and Europe, observing the social, economic and political dynamics of many cultures but never forgetting his Bahamian roots.  In 1983 he was one of ten artists selected to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Bahamian Independence. Maxwell has had a one man show in Nassau, was represented in the exhibition “Bahamian Art Today” at Brent Malone’s Matinee Gallery and is found in the collections of Nat King Cole and Sir Harry Christie.  He received the Fellowship Award from the Southern Arts Federation for works on paper by the National Endowment for the Arts.     

 

 

Woodcut print by Maxwell Taylor

 

This versatile artist and accomplished technician has become a master of a variety of media.  He is renowned for his ceramics and paintings but it is in his printmaking that he excels using an ancient technique of cutting wood.  In his career he has explored themes of universality, despair, celebration and atrocities.

“Dipped In Red” by Lara Chapman

 

Lara Chapman was looking for a better way to connect with her local community when she purchased a camera two years ago, and began visiting local parks and attractions.  She found a profound love for nature photography and poetry as seen through a camera lens.  Lara has since written hundreds of poems and taken thousands of photographs and created the “Poetry Picturebook Series”.  Her award winning photographs are on display throughout Palm Beach County and beyond.

 

“Red Hot Lowres” by Lara Chapman

 

 

Lara finds satisfaction in watching her work come to life and does most of her own printing and framing on archival fine art paper.  Her photography is a visual medium for showing the exquisite beauty of nature in the world.  Her work showcases the treasures of the planet boldly and without reservation.  Lara lives in West Palm Beach with her husband, two children, one dog and four cats.

“Calling” by Edrian Thomidis

 

 

 

 

Edrian’s artistic talent was recognized at an early age and sent her on to the University of Florida’s New World School of the Arts. After graduation she worked as a Creative Director, designing web sites, original logos, business cards and posters for South Florida businesses.  She moved on to producing web sites for large corporations such as Sony, Pepsi, Discovery and Microsoft.  She became proficient in programming, usability and information architecture.  

 

 

“Secrets” by Edrian Thomidis

 

 

 

Outside of the corporate world, Edrian illustrated many images used in books, magazines and shirts.  In 2014, she suffered the loss of a loved one and in looking for an outlet for her grief, took a ceramic class at the Armory Art Center.  She found working with clay presented a challenge and led to her creating unique sculptures. Her demonstration will show her evolution as an artist and how she applies decorations and patterns to her sculptures.

 

“Disappointment” by Edrian Thomidis

 

 

Edrian is a member of the Ceramic League of the Palm Beaches, the Wellington Art Society, the Cultural Council of Palm Beach County and the Women in the Visual Arts Organization.  Her sculptures are in many private collections around the world and in regional galleries.  She has won many awards for her work.

Artwork by Ralph Papa

 

 

Beginning in the 1980’s Ralph began painting on location in the Hudson Valley and the Hamptons on Long Island and since 2002 in Palm Beach County. His subjects are from nature, life experiences and personal reflections of family and friends. In addition to plein air painting, Ralph does studio paintings, many of them larger than life faces creating pensive moods with feelings of isolation and loneliness. His most recent studio works are real and imaginative compositions that link him visually with artists he admires.

 

 

“Loxahatchee” by Ralph Papa

 

Ralph Papa is a passionate art activist, teaching drawing, painting and plein air workshops throughout Palm Beach County. As an art instructor he believes that a fine visual artist must be able to accurately reproduce images with minimum effort which will give them a better chance of success if they are true to who they are in creating something unique.

 

“Sunday Morning Sun” by Ralph Papa

 

 

Ralph is a Signature Member and Past President of the Artists Guild of the Boca Raton Museum of Art and co-founder of Plein Air Palm Beach. His work is in many private and public collections in the United States, Canada and Europe. His art is on display locally at The Neighborhood Gallery in Boynton Beach.  Ralph tells us,“As an artist, I find the process of creating a fine artwork highly energizing and even more fulfilling then the end product”.

Arthur R. Marshall Loxahatchee National Wildlife Refuge is excited to announce our first ever Christmas Bird Count for Kids which will be held on Saturday, December 30th, 2017 from 9:00 am-12:00 pm. The Christmas Bird Count, which began over 100 years ago, is one of the oldest wildlife surveys in not only North America, but the world. Kids and families around Palm Beach County will have a chance to become citizen scientists by taking part in this old tradition with a new twist, the Christmas Bird Count for Kids.

 

A binocular boot camp will kick-off the event in the visitor center auditorium, after which kids will divide into teams and head out into the field with volunteer experts to count and record the species of birds they locate. You may bring your own binoculars or borrow some from the refuge. Teams will meet back at the visitor center after the count for snacks and to tally their results.

This event is designed as a way for families to have fun outdoors and learn more about local birds. Kids of all birding abilities are encouraged to participate. Participants should come dressed for spending time outdoors. Children must be accompanied by their parents.

 

Help Us Grow!

Tell your friends about this hidden treasure! How many of them know we have a piece of the Everglades right here in Palm Beach County? Bring them out, and encourage them to join the Friends. Better yet, give them a gift membership!
