Noelle McCarthy’s Endless Curiosity With Nature Can Be Seen At New Solo Exhibit At Eissey Campus Theatre Lobby Gallery In Palm Beach Gardens

Noelle McCarthy‘s “A Tribute to Nature” a Solo Art Exhibit brings the viewer up close with some stunning images. The Eissey Campus Theatre Lobby Gallery  exhibit opens April 2 and runs through May 1, 2022.  From her colorations to her innate understanding of her subjects, this Free Exhibit is not to be missed!  The Rickie Report shares the details and some sneak peeks.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Noelle McCarthy, based in Delray Beach, FL. was born and raised in Clifden, Ireland, a small rural town on Ireland’s remote and rugged west coast known as “The Wild Atlantic Way”.  As a child she was surrounded by nature, many pets, seaside trips, mushroom picking in the fields with her Dad, and Sunday drives in the countryside with her Mom.  “I was captivated by art and any type of creativity at school, although art classes were few and far between.  In my teens, I was immersed in the horse culture going to shows and enjoying rides in the woods and open fields in Graiguenamanagh.  I later moved to Dublin to work as a Secretary and attend the College of Marketing and Design at night.  Wanderlust struck and then I just had to travel and did so for years, starting by working in Paris, London, Asia, Thailand and Australia and eventually ended up settling in the US”.

 

 

 

 

 

“Cactus Sunburst” by Noelle McCarthy

 

 

 

Her interest in art blossomed during classes with Talin Lyman.  With a curiosity and deep connection with nature, her mission is to bring awareness to the need to protect and preserve wildlife and their habitats. Noelle’s first commission was to paint 100 Hibiscus Blooms for the remodel of The Colony Hotel in Palm Beach, FL. A regular in Juried Group Art Exhibits, this is Noelle’s first Solo Exhibition – “A Tribute to Nature”.

 

 

 

 

Noelle tells The Rickie Report, ” With each painting there is always something that catches my eye, whether it is a pose or stance, striking color, or composition. My paintings are very personal and related to a meaningful worthy cause. The emotion can be empathy towards an animal and my desire to help, or it can be just a peaceful scene that I don’t want to leave behind.  As I explore the natural world I anticipate what my next creation will be.   Each painting is like an extension of me and there’s no better honor than for others to see or feel what I am trying to convey while appreciating nature’s beauty.  I want viewers to be touched by an inner connection that translates to their own lives.”

 

 

 

“Flamingo Stand Tall” by Noelle McCarthy

 

 

 

Working and traveling throughout Europe, Asia and Australia provided her with influences of diverse landscapes. Noelle loves the adventure of exploring and trips to the Everglades, Wildlife Refuges and Sanctuaries provide endless inspiration. She paints en plein air on Everglades Day annually at Arthur R. Marshall National Wildlife Refuge and takes part in Endangered Exhibitions supporting wildlife organizations.  She shares, “I participate annually in the Center for Great Apes Endangered Art Contest, to promote and support their efforts to save animals”.

 

 

 

Painting in acrylic works well for her as it allows Noelle to paint boldly and vibrantly (and she likes that it dries quickly, so that colors can be layered with less wait time and with more control of the texture and consistency). Noelle’s painting compositions vary from up close and personal, to wide open landscapes leading you in. She is drawn to color, flow and movement and her style is Interpretative Realism sharing highly detailed subjects, but her work remains Expressive.  Attending an Artist Residency at Desert Mountain Retreat in New Mexico provided peace, solitude and much inspiration while experiencing the landscape of Georgia O’Keefe who she admires, along with South African wildlife artist, James Stroud.

She is a member of  Artists of Palm Beach County, Plein Air Palm Beach Meet Ups, Cultural Council of Palm Beach County, and Friends of Arthur R. Marshall National Wildlife Refuge.

Kristina Loaiza, Chef Concierge at The Brazilian Court Hotel shares, 

When I asked one of my more “seasoned” co-workers who has some experience in art, he told me, “I thought Deb was a great tour guide of the Norton. She was interactive and knowledgable about the pieces and exhibits. Deb has the ability to process art at a high level. Deb’s passion for the arts can transcend to reach all generations and evoke emotions you never thought art would make you feel.”
