Judy Burgarella spends a lot of time designing her class so that people will not fail.  When they sign up, she sends them a lined pattern, and in class she shows them how to get that pattern onto the canvas.  She explains, “This is not a drawing class, it’s a painting class. Drawing takes years to learn.  Even if some of them do not have a “masterpiece,” they will have learned a lot of tips and tricks to add to their knowledge of painting”.  Many of her students have said that they have learned more in her class than any other class they have taken.  “For 3 hours, I never shut up.  I am hoping to get many other artists onboard to teach this class so that we have diversity and variety to offer”.

 

 

 

“Portrait on Palette” Private Commission by Judy Burgarella

 

 

 

Judy Burgarella tells The Rickie Report, “My career in business involved mostly administration/ secretarial work, and printing and editing. As my passion to pursue art became stronger I began writing and designing for arts & crafts magazines, in addition to running my own secretarial service. I eventually started an art club, the “Shoreline Plein Air Painters” in Connecticut”. 

 

 

 

“View From A Cottage Window” by Judy Burgarella

A view from through the window of an historic house in Rockport, Massachusetts.  In one of the graves rests the actual builder of the house who was the son of the founder of Rockport. 

 

 

 

In 2005, Judy and her husband Bob moved to Florida, and she soon joined the Vero Beach Art Club and other local arts organizations, where she became very active, helping out with shows and wherever her skills were needed. In 2012 her daughter Robin and family moved to Sebastian, and Judy currently helps her with her real estate business staging homes and using her own paintings in the décor.

 

 

“Heritage Center” by Judy Burgarella In A Private Collection

 

 

 

Judy has studied under renowned artists in Connecticut and Florida, and has taught painting and drawing for over 20 years. She currently teaches portrait painting at the Vero Beach Museum of Art, general art at Indian River Estates, and does free-lance classes and demonstrations for groups and individuals. Judy is constantly on the lookout for new creative opportunities, and ways to give back to the community.

As “Season” Slows Down, What Happens To Our Local “Art Scene”? Hint: It Doesn’t Stop!

Less traffic on the road and less waiting for dining reservations is a sure sign that “season” is winding down. What happens to the “art scene”, which has had you trying to find a way to see three opening receptions on the same date for the past few months?  This Rickie Report article looks at the situation and shares some thoughts for artists AND art lovers!

 

 

 

“The Art Scene” After “Season”

As “Season” slows down:

  • Artists continue to create

  • Galleries still exhibit

  • Arts organizations continue to program

  • Museums remain open

  • Classes To Learn Art Techniques are being taught 

  • Original Art and Handmade Fine Crafts Are Still Available!

 

A Word To Art Lovers and Art Patrons:

 

Stop by galleries and art exhibits in “off season”.

They’ll be less crowded with visitors – and you’ll have a chance to linger!

This is a terrific time to hone your own art skills, learn a new technique or make a creative play date with friends!

Check The Rickie Report and search for “classes”, “workshops”, “meet the artists” and remember to look at our interactive Calendar of Events!  If you see something that interests you, click on the event. You’ll be brought to the original article for all of the details.  

We might not be publishing daily, but we still have the information you need to stay active in the art scene!

 

Sharing Some Thoughts With Artists:

 

NOW is a good time for artists who have been scurrying to meet too many overlapping deadlines for the past six months to organize themselves!

Calls For Entries To Artists continue to appear and now is the time to prepare for the annual events for next “season” 

 

Business Cards:  

It is time to revisit the wording, font size or photos on them.

Do you have enough cards to get you through the next 12 months? (NO ONE wants to run out in the middle of their busy time…Do it now)!

I make notes on business card ( galleries, exhibits, or organizations I’ll recommend the artist connect with; what is exceptional about their artwork)…

So, consider this before choosing shiny paper and having too many words/photos on your business cards.

 

Artwork:

Staying organized is one of the hardest parts of returning to your studio after an exhibit or show and putting everything away.

Staying organized for the next event is KEY!

Check your written files to make sure they are up to date.

Mark pieces “SOLD” from your inventory (it makes paying taxes easier for next year).

Is a piece of artwork missing?  Find it now, before the exhibitor or gallery takes possession of it.  (Read the fine print whenever you enter to see what their policy is for work that is left)

 

Wear And Tear:

Bringing artwork of any kind to exhibits, shows, and galleries produces wear and tear.
Check all frames for nicks and marks that need repair.
Check mats and glass to be sure everything is in proper position and in good condition.
Check all hanging devices.

Inventory:

Update your inventory list.

Take a moment for a mental inventory.

Are you happy with what you are creating?

Is it time to try a new technique that you just haven’t had time for?

Now is a perfect time to take a short-term class or workshop!

Schedule some networking time with other artists.

Talk about how this “season” has been for you. Sharing insights can be helpful, if you don’t get into a round of grousing. If something didn’t “work”, now you have time to reflect on what you can control – how can you react and plan differently?

 

Outline your business goals – YES! If you are selling your artwork, you are “in business”!

Look at a 2018 Calendar:

Start by marking the dates of all exhibit and show deadlines you are applying to in RED.

NOW: Mark the dates of those acceptance announcements and drop offs in BLUE.

 

The Rickie Report is interested in sharing your good news!

As soon as you get the acceptance notice, send us an email about the event!

The Rickie Report is already booking dates through December, 2017, so don’t hesitate to contact us!
You may not have all of the details, but we can save you a spot in the publication queue.
To get your article published, let us know 3-6 weeks before the Exhibition or Opening Reception.
Last minute openings are possible, but please do not plan on that, especially during “season”.
Giving us 6 weeks advance notice in “season” gives you more opportunities to choose a timely date for your publication.

An article includes: Who (you/art organization), What (Type of Event), When ( Dates of exhibit and specific dates and time of Receptions, including Hours of Operation), Where (Street address, contact name and phone number to ask more questions), Why ( if this is a fundraiser or for a charity, we will highlight the organization and include their website and social media addresses). Also: 5 jpegs, artist statement, brief bio, website address, social media addresses and anything else you want our readers to know about your artwork and creative process.

 

It is FREE to subscribe to The Rickie Report.

We will bill you for articles. There is no word maximum. Call for current rates.
Invest in your art business and take a monthly ad. With 3 rotations of jpegs (change them out at no charge monthly), you bring more readers (art lovers and art patrons, gallerists, museum personnel, show directors world wide) to your website.

Not Sure Where To Go From Here?

We book these seminars with arts organizations or galleries, so please contact Rickie if you are interested.

These artists were inspired by the jazz music of their time, often listening to jazz while creating their works. We’ll follow their lead and have some fine jazz playing in the classroom studio to inspire our own Glasspressive content.

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”!
