Situated on the south shore of the Jupiter Inlet, the residents of Suni Sands enjoy views of the Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse, the oldest existing structure in Palm Beach County. Home to senior citizens, veterans and native Floridians, this community was carefully built upon sacred Native American ground. The coastline is ripe with manatee, sea turtles, seagrass and local fishing boats. The famed Sperry Boathouse along the shore has hosted decades of community coastal activities.

 

 

Ted Matz, the Chair of Painting and Drawing at the Lighthouse ArtCenter said, “It was such a pleasure coordinating this group of plein air artists who produced a wonderful body of work that documents our local history, recording the past and present for the future to see. As part of the School of Art’s commitment to bring you the best in plein air painting, the Lighthouse ArtCenter’s 3rd Annual Plein Air Festival, March 10-13, 2016, will bring together the finest plein air painters in the country. We look forward to sharing all of these extraordinary plein air art experiences with the public.”

“Exposure” At Artisans On The Ave Showcases Photography In A Different Light

Three photographers will be showcased at Artisans On The Ave’s next Exhibition, “Exposure, A Photographic Journey”.  Their images make the viewer pause, as they use the adjective philosophically.  Understanding the need of certain times for “exposure”  within the photographic medium is not enough.  EJ Morales, Susan Oakes and Lorayne Vitrone take us on a life journey.  The Rickie Report shares a few sneak peeks and all of the details for this September 18th Free Public Opening Reception.

The camera lens exposures truth for all to see.  It hides nothing from the naked eye. Our photographers capture images that will take you on a journey around the world with their unique talents and precision. As they choose their subjects to photograph they have a vision of what the finalized photo will show.

These very talented artists then get creative in processing their art so that each photograph is a one of a kind unique treasure. All photographers have a favorite way of presenting these images.

“Old school” photography using the basic black and white print film is still in vogue today. Many of the new techniques include color tinting, different backgrounds, or photoshop. The various applications alter and enhance the images bringing to life the photographs we enjoy.

EJ was introduced to a more human and emotional side of photography. During the next few years, EJ experienced the opportunity to travel globally and study with well-known photographers. Around this time, a passion for SCUBA diving dating back to adolescence motivated EJ to take his camera underwater. EJ continues to create engaging imagery reflecting both the local flavor as well as far-flung topics from above and below the water.

Chernobyl, Ukraine exploded creating the world’s worst nuclear disaster. The nearby town of Pripyat was contaminated to such a level that it required an evacuation.  The few images you will see are part of a series. These images were all made in one of the town’s school buildings which served as one of the final assembly areas for the evacuation. As is human nature, many people would show up to evacuate with more belongings than there was room for and the authorities would essentially order them to throw the excess in a corner and hurry along to the next bus.

Having never been a person with merely one goal, one purpose, Susan Oakes has traveled a multifaceted educational and vocational road which continues to enlighten and reveal lifelong purpose to her. She aims to show that art and technology are not antagonistic, but can coexist and should be used to enhance each other in new and exciting ways. Working in traditional media as well as digitally, she seeks to demonstrate that computer hardware and software are artistic tools, not unlike a paintbrush or piece of charcoal, and can be used to expand the artist’s vision.

Lorayne Vitrone  tells us, ” When looking through my camera lens, life takes on a completely different perspective… a microcosm of light, shadows, shapes and movement.  My goal as a photographer is to evoke emotion for you allowing you room for your response. I hope to capture your attention to the detail I see through the lens and then bring to you feelings that you would never expect and always remember”.

The National League of American Pen Women was founded in 1897 to promote the development of creative women in the arts. The Boca Raton Branch is the largest branch in Florida, and one of the largest in the nation. 

Pen Tea Evite 10-17-13

The Boca Raton branch has long been active in the community, routinely reaching out with writing programs and contests, as well as public art shows. They develop programs with longer and more involved goals. In 2004-2005, they developed an outreach initiative with the Gateways Book Program to aid those incarcerated in the Girls Juvenile Detention Center in West Palm Beach. The branch presents monthly workshops with the girls and collects books, which helped to establish a library at the center. Another outreach program was designed to help Palm Beach County teachers by offering members’ talents and expertise in the arts for use in the classroom. These outreach programs are important not only in serving the community, but because they help the organization maintain its not-for-profit, 501(c)(3) status.

 

 

 

The branch holds program luncheon meetings the 3rd Thursday of the month, from November through May, at the Delray Beach Golf Club. Creativity workshops and exhibitions are also held at various times throughout the year for members and the general public.

 

Different levels of membership are available. For more information, go to the local branch websitewww.bocapenwomen.org
