Gallery 1: Illuminating the Deep: Explore. Learn. Act. Showcases the collaborative genius of the internationally-recognized authority on bioluminescence, Dr. Edie Widder, and the artist, Steven Bernstein, PhD, combining art and science. Their vibrant photographic images of unimagined creatures, captured in the depths of the sea by Dr. Widder’s unique cameras, accompanied by informational panels, provide a colorful and engaging introduction to the language of light (and giant squid) in our oceans.

 

lacelse-bostlemann-lantern-fish_orig
Gallery 2: Featuring the Art of Else Bostlemann in The Fine Art of Exploration presents a private collection of original paintings depicting the never-before-seen wonders of the deep by Else Bostlemann. Bostlemann was the expedition artist for scientist William Beebe during the world-record Bathysphere dives into the deep sea in the 1930’s. Beebe and Bostlemann introduced the world to bioluminescence. This historic artwork, on loan to the Lighthouse ArtCenter from the Bostlemann family, was created for National Geographic, and have never been publicly displayed.

Gallery 3: Google Tilt Brush Step into the cutting edge of technology with virtual reality and the newly released Tilt Brush by Google! Visitors will be immersed in the experience of bioluminescence as they paint with light in 3-D. Walk inside your “painting,” look at it from above, below, and through both sides. This astonishing new art form is sure to be popular, appointments are necessary. Your favorite digital screen shot will be emailed to you to share with your friends and family. Only $15 for a fun and mind-altering ten minutes you’ll talk about for the rest of the season! Make your virtual reality experience appointment starting December 15, 2016. Call Sheri Gansz at (561) 746-3101.

 

“If there is a fourth part to our exhibition, it would have to be our concern for all life in our oceans,” said Lighthouse ArtCenter curator Janeen Mason. “We have seen in Florida that our lifestyles on land can have great consequences for the creatures of the sea. We hope Illuminating the Deep can also provide ways everyone can make a difference.”

 

 

 

In a special addition, Dr. Widder will give a lecture bringing together many of the elements that make up the exhibitions. Entitled “Illuminating the Deep: The Fine Art of Exploration”, in this presentation Dr. Widder will describe some of the earliest expeditions that Bostlemann illustrated and contrast them with her own experiences exploring the deep, including her breakthrough capturing the first images of a Giant Squid in its natural habitat.

 

laccolor-splash-jeweled-squid-histioteuthis-sp-7x-3-5-300dpi

 

 

In” Illuminating the Deep”, Bernstein and Widder have combined art and science to share some of the bizarre and wonderful creatures from our planet’s last frontier. Together, they explore how bioluminescence plays such an important part in life deep down in the ocean, and illustrate the beauty of the marine life that inhabits the deep sea through vivid works of art. One such piece of art is a life-size image of the Giant Squid, filmed for the first time in its natural habitat by Dr. Widder. Visitors to Illuminating the Deep can even take a selfie of themselves with the Giant Squid.

 

“Illuminating the Deep” also sheds light on the threats faced by the ocean and its inhabitants, and what everyone can do in their everyday life to preserve and protect the planet’s largest ecosystem. A particular focus of the exhibition is a display showing the health of the Indian River Lagoon and how the waterway impacts life in the deep sea.

“This is a rare encounter with life beyond the average person’s reach,” said Lighthouse ArtCenter’s Executive Director Nancy Politsch. “We’re thrilled to have Dr. Widder and Dr. Bernstein’s thought-provoking exhibition and striking art for this one-of-a-kind exhibit. Our guests will be astonished and fascinated to view images of creatures so different from what we know.”

 

The Lighthouse ArtCenter’s presentation of deep sea art, science and social concerns also features the art of Else Bostlemann in The Fine Art of Exploration. In the 1930s, another type of explorer dove into the deep in a bathysphere, a metal sphere lowered by cable a half mile deep. William Beebe became a renowned expert on creatures of the deep, because he was the first to see what sailors of old fabled – odd, large luminescent animals unlike any fish or mollusk caught and consumed nearer the surface.

 

 

 

Beebe described what he saw to the expedition artist, Else Bostlemann, who sketched and painted Beebe’s recollections. Her artwork from nearly a century ago, used by National Geographic Magazine to illustrate Beebe’s dramatic descriptions of the deep, will be part of Lighthouse ArtCenter’s original art installation in The Fine Art of Exploration.

PAINT PALM BEACH EN PLEIN AIR 2017 (Formerly the Annual Lighthouse ArtCenter Plein Air Festival)

March 8-12, 2017

 

LACpaint-palm-beach-logo_orig2017.jpg

 

 

Lighthouse ArtCenter announced today the names of the 35 artists selected to participate in the 2017 Paint Palm Beach en Plein Air competition now in its 4th year at North Palm Beach County’s critically acclaimed art gallery and education center. The event will take place March 8-12, 2017. Plein Air has become a popular competition throughout the world, giving artists different venues to create in, while being challenged by the length and surroundings of the four-day contest. The selected artists compete for prize money and are able to display their work at the Lighthouse ArtCenter for gallery visitors to view, offer their opinions and purchase a favored painting at the Collector’s Party on Saturday, March, 11th, final day of competition. Paintings may also be purchased “wet” from the artist at the painting sites.
“We modified this year’s artist selection process after an outstanding 2016 competition,” said Lighthouse ArtCenter’s Chair of Painting and Drawing and Co-Chair of this event, Ted Matz. “Feedback from our former contestants suggested we narrow our field of artists to give each participant more exposure to the crowds drawn to watch them when they’re sketching and painting at the various venues. ”
With more than 120 applicants for the limited slots, Matz said the selection process became one of scoring several criteria, not all of which were based on direct artistic skills. “We wanted to be fair to artists who may not have participated in our Plein Air competition in the first three years. And fair to the Lighthouse ArtCenter patrons who want to see how new artists interpret our local scenery when challenged to capture it on canvas.”

The 35 artists selected scored highest when evaluated by the following:
1. Originality
2. Overall Quality
3. Consistency of Style
4. Technical Skills
5. Marketability to Audience

“We are thrilled by the artistic diversity selected to compete in March 2017,” said Lighthouse ArtCenter Curator Janeen Mason. “We had submissions from artists in 27 states and two who are international. We are excited to see how these artists translate our South Florida seascapes, landscapes and architecture.”

The Lighthouse ArtCenter Museum is proud to present selections from The Manoogian Collection: Two Centuries of American Art through March 5, 2016. It is generously underwritten by Detroit industrialist, Richard Manoogian and his wife Jane. The Manoogian exhibition will fill LAC’s galleries with priceless, diverse collection of works from 1856 – 1999.

 

 

LAC-Manoogian-Brega, Doug-Ferry Watch

“Ferry Watch” by Doug Brega

 

 

 

The Manoogian Collection is one of the most significant private collections of American art compiled during the 20th century. A number of paintings in the collection have been exhibited at the White House, National Gallery of Art, Metropolitan Museum of Art and Detroit Institute of Arts. The National Gallery considers the collection to be “a comprehensive survey of American painting, a remarkable one in capsule form.”

 

 

LAC-Manoogian-Maier_29_Duesenberg

“1929 Duesenberg” by Peter Maier

 

 

 

When Richard Manoogian was asked why he collects American Art, “Collecting American paintings is important to me,” he said. “Those from an ethnic background like mine often have a great appreciation for America because of the opportunity this country has created for their families. The result is a deep love for one’s country and a particular appreciation for the period in which the country grew and expanded.”

 

 

 

 

 

Although the Manoogians lead a very private life, they enjoy sharing their collection. “To some extent my collecting has been driven by wanting to share my paintings with others as a way of giving something back to the country that has been so good to our family,” Mr. Manoogian said. The exhibition includes works that range from mid-19th century to 1999, including paintings of renowned artists, such as Frederick Frieseke, William Merritt Chase, Childe Hassam and Andrew Wyeth.

“As these works are in a private collection, the Manoogian Collection exhibition presents an opportunity for our community to view extraordinary art by American artists that cannot be seen often,” said Katie Deits, the executive director of the Lighthouse ArtCenter. “Museum visitors can browse the exhibition or attend docent- led tours. Our lecture series will feature Joan Lipton speaking about William Merritt Chase on December 17 and Anne Palumbo, Ph.D., discusses the Statue of Liberty as an American Icon on January 21. There will be special tours and evenings for private clubs and organizations, as well as educational programs for children.”

 

 

 

 

 

The collection reflects Mr. Manoogian’s belief that, “It is important for people to appreciate the unique character, diversity and quality of American art. I hope that our collection will encourage others to both appreciate and collect American art.” Mr. Manoogian served as Chairman of the Detroit Institute of Arts (the DIA dedicated its American Wing as the Manoogian Wing) and has also served on the boards of Archives of American Art, the White House Preservation Fund and the Fine Arts Committee of the Department of State.

The Lighthouse ArtCenter Museum is proud to present selections from The Manoogian Collection: Two Centuries of American Art, November 19, 2015 through March 5, 2016. It is generously underwritten by Detroit industrialist, Richard Manoogian and his wife Jane. The Manoogian exhibition will fill LAC’s galleries with priceless, diverse collection of works from 1856 – 1999.

“Ferry Watch” by Doug Brega

 

 

 

The Manoogian Collection is one of the most significant private collections of American art compiled during the 20th century. A number of paintings in the collection have been exhibited at the White House, National Gallery of Art, Metropolitan Museum of Art and Detroit Institute of Arts. The National Gallery considers the collection to be “a comprehensive survey of American painting, a remarkable one in capsule form.”

When Richard Manoogian was asked why he collects American Art, “Collecting American paintings is important to me,” he said. “Those from an ethnic background like mine often have a great appreciation for America because of the opportunity this country has created for their families. The result is a deep love for one’s country and a particular appreciation for the period in which the country grew and expanded.”

 

 

Although the Manoogians lead a very private life, they enjoy sharing their collection. “To some extent my collecting has been driven by wanting to share my paintings with others as a way of giving something back to the country that has been so good to our family,” Mr. Manoogian said.  The exhibition includes works that range from mid-19th century to 1999, including paintings of renowned artists, such as Frederick Frieseke, William Merritt Chase, Childe Hassam and Andrew Wyeth.

“As these works are in a private collection, the Manoogian Collection exhibition presents an opportunity for our community to view extraordinary art by American artists that cannot be seen often,” said Katie Deits, the executive director of the Lighthouse ArtCenter. “Museum visitors can browse the exhibition or attend docent- led tours. Our lecture series will feature Joan Lipton speaking about William Merritt Chase on December 17 and Anne Palumbo, Ph.D., discusses the Statue of Liberty as an American Icon on January 21. There will be special tours and evenings for private clubs and organizations, as well as educational programs for children.”

 

 

The collection reflects Mr. Manoogian’s belief that, “It is important for people to appreciate the unique character, diversity and quality of American art. I hope that our collection will encourage others to both appreciate and collect American art.”  Mr. Manoogian served as Chairman of the Detroit Institute of Arts (the DIA dedicated its American Wing as the Manoogian Wing) and has also served on the boards of Archives of American Art, the White House Preservation Fund and the Fine Arts Committee of the Department of State.

 Gerri wants to offer the audience a review of Contemporary Art from the Impressionists up to the 21st century, showing that Contemporary Art all has to do with artists relating their artwork to the times. Their art expresses concepts and ideas that are current and includes what the public is involved with and thinking about. Very often the general public thinks that contemporary art is out of context and taken from left field but that is not the case, at all. All in all, the lecture will heighten the experience of people who take advantage the Lighthouse ArtCenter’s bus tour opportunities.

Gerri Aurre earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Art Education and was a career Art teacher in New York. She has traveled worldwide throughout her life. Her art is about landscape, the figure and abstraction coming from the essence of those travel experiences. Aurre is the President of the North County Artists Association.

Celebrate the Artful Back Alley 

Award Winners surprise with cutting-edge paintings!

 

Twenty local artists created large-scale murals on a 200-foot long outdoor wall, while more than 300 visitors enjoyed watching the acrylic paintings come alive. The inaugural Back Alley Mural Festival was a collaborative, community event held at Gallery Square North in Tequesta on September 19-20, 2015. The murals will be on view in the public space for one month, culminating with a festive Art Stroll to celebrate the artful back alley on October 16 from 6 to 9 p.m. The event is free to members of the Lighthouse ArtCenter and to the public.

“Flamingo” by Mark Rupprect

Presented by the Lighthouse ArtCenter, the festival was a celebration of the power of art in public places. “As the ArtCenter is eco-friendly, no aerosols were used for the paintings,” said Cynthia Trone, Director of Education at the Lighthouse ArtCenter. “The murals created conversation, new friendships, artistic inspiration, and fueled a growing sense of community in the small Village of Tequesta.”

 

 

 

LACMuralFlorida Faucet, Manon Sander

“Florida Faucet” by Manon Sander

 

Julie Silk Beaumont, muralist and owner of Village Art Studios, saw the potential of creating a local, neighborhood art-centered outdoor painting event for “sunbirds, so we intentionally scheduled the event before the arrival of the busy ‘snowbird’ season.”

 

  • In keeping with the easy-going camaraderie of the event, winners were chosen by Peoples’ Choice Award votes:  First Place was awarded to Mark Rupprect, a local graffiti artist and fine art teacher. Signing his work “Bulks”, he is known for his bold and colorful designs, Mark was a crowd favorite with his striking chrome, black and white Flamingo and Alligator.

 

  • Second Place went to Lighthouse ArtCenter faculty member Marta Llorens. An artist and conceptual thinker from Barcelona, Spain, Marta created her first large-scale contour painting. Her abstract portraits are gaining an audience both abroad and locally and her background in graphic arts, fine arts and historical research is apparent in her fantastic and detailed work.

 

 

  • Manon Sander, a local artist and faculty member at Lighthouse ArtCenter, won Third Place. Her “Florida Faucet” was a surreal and delightful departure from her familiar plein air paintings that continue to win her awards and a devoted following of collectors and students. It features a quote by Thoreau which captured the essence of the day, ”It’s not what you look at that matters, it’s what you see.”

The Brewhouse Gallery

720 Park Avenue Lake Park, FL. 33403

 

The Brewhouse Gallery is part eclectic hipster lounge, part modern New York art gallery. It’s a creative space to hang out, sip a brew, hold a meeting, share ideas, listens to music, and appreciate local art. Free Wi-Fi and comfortable furniture (that is also for sale) make you feel right at home. Our mission is to support local arts and build community! We serve French Press, Lattes, Cappuccinos, a killer Cuban espresso and other coffee creations made with locally roasted beans sourced directly from the growers. By night we offer craft beer from the finest Florida microbreweries, including Due South, Monk in the Trunk, and Cigar City, along with a selection of favorite wines.
 Musical performances, poetry readings, painting classes, and other assorted nighttime events keep things lively and we are quickly becoming one of the most well-respected live music venues in all of South Florida.
