Florida looks glorious through the eyes of area artists, according to Ralph Papa

Florida through the eyes of artists is astoundingly beautiful. More than 75 artists in the Landscapes 2012 exhibition at the Lighthouse ArtCenter Museum have captured the vivid colors and diverse scenery of the paradise that many of them call home. The Rickie Report likes that some of the pieces are three dimensional.  Much of the art in Landscapes 2012 brings you into the scene.  This show runs through January 5th, so bring your out-of-town guests with you and enjoy more of Florida than your own back yard!

 

Landscape 2012 Exhibition

Through January 5, 2013

 

Ralph Papa will be speaking about the art of landscape painting

December 20, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.

 

Lighthouse ArtCenter Museum

Gallery Square North, 373 Tequesta Drive, Tequesta

Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Saturday 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Nearly 200 people attended the opening on November 15, at which awards were presented by the juror Ralph Papa. Mr. Papa is an accomplished artist and a workshop instructor at the Lighthouse ArtCenter School of Art, as well as president of the Boca Raton Museum’s Artist Guild.

 

“There were so many great works in this exhibition,” said Mr. Papa, “It was really difficult to choose the award winners. I only wish there were more awards to give, as so many artists deserved them.”

Katie Deits, executive director of the ArtCenter, also congratulated Barbra Broidy, assistant curator, on the entire look of the exhibition.  “Everyone has commented on the extraordinary quality of the artwork and how terrific the entire show appears,” Ms. Deits said. “The jurying and curation of the show is critical, and the jurying committee and Barbra truly excelled. Displaying 136 works of art, some of which measure more than 10-feet wide, and having a cohesive look is a challenge. We were also pleased that several pieces of art sold on opening night.”

“Landscapes 2012 is a great opportunity for people to enjoy the beauty that Florida offers and, as much of the art is also for sale, perhaps purchase a piece or two to adorn the walls of their home or office.,” Ms. Deits said. “This also helps to support artists who are working in our area”.
