Vicki Siegel has been working with photographic images since the late 1970’s. Her paintings are an exploration of painting and photography combined. Blending the two art forms is a process that results in images that are both real and imaginary. Vicki has just returned from training sessions with Golden Artist Colors, where she became a Golden Artist Educator, (GAEP). You can see her work at two different exhibits right now!

Stan Dornfest tells The Rickie Report, ““I have always felt most spiritual when I am physically and emotionally enveloped by a landscape. The mystical state of mind that these inspiring locales transport me to, is what I strive to reflect in my painting. For me, rather than merely documenting topography, painting is more about expressing the spiritual journey that the world of nature transports me to.”

“I prefer to paint in Acrylics because I actually like the quick drying time, the versatility of the mediums and the quick clean up time which fits into my life. I developed and taught a course for design students called:”Art Direction-Expanding Your Options. The course explored different career paths that Design/Art students could take”.

“Afternoon In The Azores” by Stan Dornfest

 

 

“My elementary school teacher summoned my mother to the classroom to explain to her that she felt that I was very talented in Art. She offered to loan me her oil paints over the summer so that I could continue painting. My mother explained to her that she could afford to purchase a set of oil paints for me. Not only did my mother buy the paints, but she researched and found courses for me to take on Saturdays at The Brooklyn Museum Art School and Brooklyn College, which nurtured my life long passion for painting. From an early age, I was always painting. After High School, I was fortunate to get accepted to The Cooper Union Art School. After Cooper, I pursued a long, successful career as an Advertising Creative/Art Director but during that time – I continued to paint. As my advertising career tapered off-my painting endeavors expanded”.

Ted tells The Rickie Report,“As our lives become more frantic in this world of high tech living, I strive to take the viewer to a place of solitude and serenity”.  Ted teaches watercolor, acrylic, pastels and plein air painting. His teaching stresses finding your own individual voice that emerges from developing a visual language: value, composition, drawing, color, patterns and a strong sense of seeing. Art is about finding your own authentic style and developing your self confidence and awareness as an artist.
