Warrior Goddess Movement: 

A Healing Photo Journey for Breast Cancer Survivors

Exhibit runs April 1 – 30, 2019

Benefits:


MAKING STRIDES AGAINST BREAST CANCER
and
LIGHTHOUSE DRAGONS SOS

The purpose of Rhea’s charity project is being able to help breast cancer survivors see their beauty in a new way, to get comfortable in their own skin, and to redefine and re-connect who they are as woman after their diagnosis. It’s not about showing their scars and the ugly side of cancer, but about forgetting their scars, celebrating their beauty as women no matter what their new body looks like.  The imagery is truly a representation of the beautiful inner light that all women share and it reminds them that the scars don’t define them.

 

 

 

 

Making Strides Against Breast Cancer:

The American Cancer Society has a presence in more than 3,400 communities across the country and is the only organization available 24 hours a day, seven days aweek to help people touched by cancer. Breast cancer is the number one reason people call the Society. When you support Making Strides, you are helping the Society seek better ways to prevent, detect, and treat breast cancer, as well as provide help and hope to people facing the disease.

Lighthouse Dragons SOS:

Lighthouse Dragons is a dragon boat team composed of breast cancer survivors and their supporters. We promote a healthy and life affirming activity through the sport of dragon boating. Each of us is a powerful example that one can lead a full and active life after a diagnosis of breast cancer.

 

 

Rhea Lewis is a Certified Professional Photographer, Master Photographer, and is an internationally award winning photographer.  In 2018 and 2017 Rhea Lewis was named TOP 10 Photographer in the state of Florida and earned her Florida Degree of Photographic Excellence from Florida Professional Photographers.  She has been in business as a professional photographer for 14 years and owns and operates a highly successful boutique studio in Jupiter, FL.  She is a leader in her profession and has served as President of the local Professional Photographer’s Guild of the Palm Beaches and currently serves on the Board of the Florida Professional Photographers Association.  She has been a leader and a pioneer in the boudoir photography market and strongly believes in empowering women through boudoir photography. She has dedicated her studio to women’s portraiture over the past 5 years and since 2017 has been working with breast cancer survivors on a charity project.  She has donated over 30 sessions and over $25,000 to help these women feel and look beautiful as they progress on their journey of diagnosis and survival.   She has had her own scare with cancer and her mother and my aunt are survivors. She has photographed women at various stages in their diagnosis from those just diagnosed to 10-year survivors.

Lucio Chiurulla, Master Italian Sculptor

 

 

The Lighthouse ArtCenter is excited to announce the two-week stone carving workshop by Italian sculptor, Lucio Chiurulla in March 2019. Mr. Chiurulla will be in Tequesta from his native Italy for the two-week workshop.  The workshop is from March 25 – April 5, 2019. This course will focus on marble and stone, two materials that are still carved employing the traditional technique that has been used for many centuries, especially in Italy, since the Greeks and the Romans, and even before them.

 

 

A sculptor of twenty-five year experience with marbles, granites and stones, Mr. Chiurulla studied at the Art School and Accademia of Belle Arti in Perugia (Italy), did his own research on Ancient Roman, Greek and Medieval statues and mosaics acquiring specific marble carving techniques. He currently has his studio near the Trasimeno Lake in the Italian region of Umbria, where he lives and works.

 

 

The workshop program will revolve around a few basic concepts and rules regarding the making of a stone sculpture in the traditional way, using the chisel and the mallet. You will be practicing a technique that has been the same for many centuries – if not millenniums – but that can now be widely reinterpreted and adjusted in the light of modern conception of “art” and the personal feelings of each sculpture.  

 

 

Each student will be provided a carving table, a piece of Italian soft stone, access to electricity and will work under a covered tent. Demonstrations and group/individual instruction will be provided of the step by step process of the stone removal process, through sanding and polishing and making a finished sculpture including a base.create your own

Lunch can be arranged each day. Kits of sculpting tools will also be available for sale in the school store. All levels from beginners to advanced welcome.

MEET      THE      ARTISTS:

 

 

 

 

 

JASON     MATHIAS

 

 

 

 

 

 

Native Floridian, Jason Mathias was born in Stuart, Florida where some of his earliest memories are of the ocean aboard his grandfather’s charter boat “Do Stay”.  As a child, Jason’s two favorite pastimes were drawing and fishing, and it wasn’t before long that he stated combining the two.  After graduating from Martin County High School as art student of the month, Jason was accepted into Ringling School of Art & Design where he majored in illustration.  He quickly became known to both fellow students and faculty as “the fish guy”.  While at Ringling, Jason began his practice of taking underwater footage to use as reference material for his growing portfolio of realistic marine life paintings.  While still a student, he launched his career creating murals, commissioned artwork and freelance illustrations for Mote Marine Laboratories – an experience that not only won him recognition for his unique talents as a marine life illustrator, but also concretized his chosen path as a marine and wildlife artist. 

 

 

 

 

Gallery View of Jason Mathias’ artistry

 

 

Within the first two years of graduating from Ringling School of Art and Design, Jason was the premier featured artist at (IGFA) International Game Fish Association Museum Hall of Fame. Jason had also been featured artist numerous times and made several print signing appearances with (CCA) Coastal Conservation Association, and has been featured in many Galleries and museums such as the Cornell Museum in Delray Beach.  Jason’s current fine art compositions in oils, acrylics and watercolors are drawn from the extensive experience and underwater digital video he takes while exploring the planet’s oceans.  You can now find Jason’s works in stores, museums and galleries throughout the world, including Europe, Egypt, Australia, Hawaii, South America, Canada and Central America.

 

 

 

 

 

DON     RAY  

 

 

 

 

Don Ray

 

 

Don Ray grew up in Ohio, where his interest in art extends as far back as he can remember.  Don learned about fresh water subjects as a boy, fishing and netting local streams and lakes.  A self-taught artist, who studied the work of masters from “The Golden Age of Illustration” such as  Wyeth and Frederick Remington, Don also learned from contemporaries like George Schelling and, in particular, Stanley Meltzoff, who personally shared his knowledge and time with Don as a mentor.  Don lives near Vero Beach.  His research methods include collecting wild specimens and diving with them in natural habitat,  including a three-quarter acre research pond on his own property.  

 

 

 

 

Artistry by Don Ray

 

 

 

 

Don joined the Society of Animal Artists in 1990, the same year, he also won its highest honor, the Award of Excellence.  Don has competed in and won a variety of state stamp and print competitions. His paintings won first place in the Florida State Lobster Stamp competition and in the Florida snook stamp competition, making him the state’s first double competition winner.  In 1995, Don again won the snook stamp and print competition.  In 1994 and 1999, he was commissioned to paint the Coastal Conservation Association stamp and print.  He was also selected to paint the Texas saltwater fishing stamp and print multiple times asa well as the Texas freshwater stamp and print.

 

 

 

Don’s paintings have been selected by the International Game Fish Association for covers of various editions of its annual publication, World Record Game Fishes.  Don’s art has also graced the covers of other books, magazines and catalogs including Big Game Fishing Journal, Cabel’s, Field & Stream, Game Fish (France), Inshore Offshore Magazine, Marlin, Marlin Magazine’s 30th anniversary cover, Outdoor Life, Penn Reels, Redbone Journal, Saltwater Sportsman, and Sporting Tales, Florida Sport Fishing.  In addition to the Society of Animal Artists Annual Exhibition, Don’s work has been juried into the Florida Wildlife Expo, Game Conservation International, Pacific Rim Wildlife Expo, and Southeastern Wildlife Expo.  Don was chosen as the featured artist for Florida’s Coastal Conservation Association 25th Anniversary.  He has been represented by Collectors Covery (Dallas, TX), Russell Jimishian Gallery  (Fairfield, CT) Redbone Gallery (Islamorada, FL) and Sportsman Edge (New York).

Neil Capozzi tells The Rickie Report, “My personal and business mission is to provide local artists with a great selection of quality art supplies at value pricing”.  Neil is a major supporter of the local art scene, by bringing special events into the store and art studio.  He is heavily involved as a volunteer with local arts agencies and organizations.  In addition, Neil provides affordable space for instructors to hold classes and workshops. He passes on his expertise by providing affordable art education to adults.

 

 

 

 

Recently, Neil announced that he would be making changes in his artists’ brush mix eliminating Escoda, stocking Da Vinci and expanding Silver Brush. He says, “I”m happy to share that the Da Vinci Brushes have arrived to rave reviews from artists and instructors alike.  For you fine art painters, I added the short handled red sable brushes from Silver Brush (excellent for all media). These brushes join the long handled versions favored by detail painters. I’ve also added the Silver Silk 88, a semi stiff synthetic bristle for water media painters including water soluble oil paints”.

With so many different types and brands of brushes, Neil offers all of the details at the store and on the website.

 

 

Check out this video of Dee Silver, as she discusses the proper treatment of artist brushes:

https://youtu.be/GCIv2hTTGu0

 

An Overview of Brushes:

 

 

The Art Sherpa® red handle — made by Silver Brush in partnership with Cinnamon Cooney, The Art Sherpa®. These beauties feature excellent quality stiff white filaments that were specifically designed for use in all acrylic paints, including heavy bodied. Sherpa brushes provide paint and tip control unique to the series. Now you can scrub, scumble and push paint around on your surface without fear of damaging the brush! 

 

 

 

Silverstone™ brushes are of the finest quality interlocking Chungking white hog bristle. They have perfectly balanced and shaped handles for ultimate comfort and control while a nickeled brass ferrule protects the brush from damage, splitting and wear. 

 

 

​Cambridge™ series brushes have a unique blend of selected natural bristle and multi-diameter synthetic filaments with a resilient interlocked construction and deep natural chiseled tips. A seamless nickel-plated brass ferrule and carefully balanced handle make the Cambridge series a joy to work with, even on rough surfaces. These exceptionally durable brushes work well in heavy bodied acrylics, water-mixable oils, and traditional oil colors. 

 

The Atelier™ Mottler brushes feature a blend of badger and synthetic bristles and they are perfect for blending or softening edges. The extra long handle provides reach for work on a large canvas and a rust proof copper ferrule protects the brush.

 

Bristlon® is a superior stiff white synthetic brush that has been specially processed so it can be used with harsh solvents without compromising the texture or the fibers. These brushes offer excellent color control and strong resiliency on rough surfaces as a result of their interlocked construction and finely chiseled tips. It doesn’t matter if you are working with oils, acrylics, or watercolors, they will maintain their form and provide a smooth application of color. 

 

 

Black Pearl™ brushes are made with Mightlon™ synthetic filaments that can withstand rigorous treatment with heavy bodied and tube acrylics. These are great value brushes for not only acrylics but oils and water mixable oils as well. Ideal for canvas, large murals and plein air painting. 

 

 

Black Velvet® — distinctive black lacquer handled brushes with a signature silver band are a water-based artist’s dream! The Black Velvet® series is made with a blend of natural squirrel hair and black synthetics that allows the brush to hold a huge amount of color and release it with perfect control for watercolors, gouache, liquid acrylics, inks and dyes.

Thursday, November 15th

6:30 – 8:30pm

Suggested donation…$20

Learn about Paul’s creative process in the development of his unique artwork and the origins of his very unique style.  The definition of realism takes on a new meaning when the paintings are shaped in perspective because a ‘realistic’ painting in a square or rectangle relies on the acceptance by the viewer that they are looking at an illusion presented to them in an arbitrarily imposed shape. But when a painting is shaped to look like the object represented when seen in perspective, such as a painting of a door – which actually opens and closes like a real door – then the illusion of reality is intensified. Perhaps it would be more accurate to describe this increased realism as ‘supra-realism’.

He presently is exhibiting with De Twee Pauwen, The Hague, The Netherlands and Bel-Air Fine Art, Miami.  Paul has shown in more than 200 Group Exhibitions, including: The 57th ‘Bienale di Venezia’, Italy, 2017 – Bel-Air Fine Art, Paris, France Maddox Gallery, London, Galerie Blondel, Paris, France, Michelle Rosenfeld Gallery, New York City, Scott Richards Contemporary Art, San Francisco, National Centre for Contemporary Art, Vladikavkaz, Russia.  Paul has participated in 36 Solo Exhibitions since 1987 and Over 61 International Art Fairs since 1985. Rotterdam Contemporary, The Netherlands,, Art Karlsruhe, Germany (solo), Moniker, London, Art.Fair Cologne, Germany (Solo shows 2014 – 2015), SCOPE, Basel, Switzerland (Solo show 2013).  https://www.saatchiart.com/PaulC
