Genie Appel-Cohen has shown her artworks several times at the Tate Gallery (London, England) and she is one of the few American artists listed in the Tate archives!  In addition, she was one of only thirty artists, nationwide, to be invited by the U.S. Department of the Interior, to paint en plein air in Montana’s National Parks.

 

 

 

“Climate” Oil Painting by Genie Appel-Cohen

 

 

Genie Appel-Cohen tells The Rickie Report, “There are many great artists, and many great teachers; but to be an art teacher, a good one, requires skills not taught in any school.  There is no one more vulnerable or brave than a new art student.  They come to me, full of hope and yearning, and I take that responsibility very seriously.  Each person is precious. I need to learn just who they are, how best to teach them, and to support them completely, (every step of the way); on this wonderful journey, we call art.  That for me, is a mission and the blessing of my life”.  When you view some of the artworks by her students, you will see how this nurturing focus brings out the best in them! Due to the Pandemic, and at the urging of her students, Genie has created an unusually successful Zoom platform for artists in all 2 dimensional mediums.  

 

 

 

Student artworks Left to Right: Marla Friedman, Fran Fran Starkman

 

 

 

Genie tells us, “Each painting is a story where the artist invites the viewer to become part of their inner world.  My work is an invitation to engage you in a conversation.  I use paint, or pencil to reveal hidden meaning; not just in my life, but in yours as well.  I usually work in a series so I can explore one idea, but in different ways.   My hope is that I can make a connection, and that you might say, “Oh yes, I see”, or,   “Yes, I felt that, too.” This might be one small part of our mutual humanity; but for me, it is everything”.

Student artworks Left to Right: Linda Solomon, Judith Rostenne

“Working With Scary Greens” by Ted Matz

 

 

Ted Matz has developed a series of weekly scheduled Virtual Painting Demonstrations that will concentrate on common problems that students have with their work, along with the concepts that can be applied to any medium. He tells The Rickie Report, ” Trailer videos are being planned and sent out 3 days prior to my demonstration videos. The trailers will be released on Mondays and the Demonstrations will occur on the following Thursdays. These are not live videos; the student can watch them at their own convenience”.

 

Once the viewer has completed the suggested exercises, they then may take a photo of their work, send the photo to Ted at tedmatz@comcast.net. Once that is received Ted will give a critique of the work that they completed.

 

To access the video demonstrations the student simply has to click on the link provided via email or on The New Studio website www.thenewstudiova.net

 

The trailers are designed to generate excitement about the demonstrations and also to inform people of what the subject matter will be for that week. The videos are tentatively planned to begin the week of March 23.

 

See tentative schedule below:

  • “Scary Greens”, March 23; In this video the world of greens will be demystified and the student will be shown how with a few simple color mixing techniques they can make rich, vibrant greens.

 

  • “Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark”, April 2; Students have a tendency to paint with weak values and non-saturated colors, in this video they will learn how to challenge themselves to venture into the dark, enjoy it and make in the end make their lights sing.

Portrait by Janet Rogers

February 17-18   SESSION I –   “WATERCOLOR IMPRESSIONS – FLOWERS TO LANDSCAPE”

9 am – 4 pm    $300​

Fresh flowers in the studio will be the inspiration for the beginning of this workshop.  Janet will demonstrate various “fun” exercises geared to interpret flowers in a loose and expressive manner.  Discovering the unique “nature” of individual flowers and “finding” new colors will be highlighted.  We will also explore how to interpret the landscape from photos in an impressionistic style.  Demonstrations and individual help will weave throughout the workshop, with an emphasis on letting the medium of watercolor lead the students to new adventures in watercolor.  (PLEIN AIR – in studio!)  Some goals include “keeping the whites”, avoiding “mud”, intuitive color and composition.  Besides working with students individually and class demos, Janet and attendees  will enjoy “Show and Tell” – and opportunity to see class work together and enjoy!

ALL LEVELS WELCOME     

February  19,20,21   SESSION II –  “WATERCOLOR IMPRESSIONS – THE HEAD & FIGURE”

 

9 am – 4 pm  $375

 

This dynamic workshop is designed to enable participants to quickly gain confidence in approaching the portrait and figure in a more spontaneous, intuitive and expressive way.  Demonstrations, class instruction, individual assistance, “show and tell”, and a series of “fun” exercises, (which will include drawing, color and paint application) will weave into class painting time.  Special emphasis will be on achieving a fresh look of translucent flesh tones in the portrait with unique color changes, which will add to the excitement of capturing the essence of the subject.  Many “features” will be covered, including an approach to children’s portraits.  No fear in this workshop – drawing help is available – no matter what level. Students will have an opportunity to work from their photographs or Janet’s and also the opportunity to paint in a gestural and intuitive manner from the live model for ½ of the last day.  Our goals will be to “see” in new ways — bringing “life” and interpretation to the portrait and figure, and to discover intuitive color and design.  

ALL LEVELS WELCOME

 

 

PAUL   JACKSON

February 24 -26

Paul’s focus for this workshop will be to guide you through a painting from beginning to end, as you paint together a stunning image of dramatic light and luminosity. You may choose to follow along and work on the same image, or find another subject entirely. Paul will happily work with you through whatever subject you choose.  Paint with Paul and he’ll help you reach the next level of artistic confidence and ability as he guides you through a painting, illustrating the principles of design, color, value, composition and the mechanics of watercolor.  Through informal lectures, discussions, demonstrations and critiques you refine your personal painting style. Come prepared to be entertained, make new artist friends and find logical and creative answers to your watercolor problems.

Paul will demonstrate the versatility of watercolor paint. You will learn… 

  • How to work in thin layers of washes to build up luminous colors.

  • How to plan the entire picture area

  • The importance of thinking through the composition, good division of shapes, value planning, 

  • What to communicate about your subject

  • How to correct mistakes.

 

 

“Perfect Curves” by Paul Jackson

 

Paul will lead you step-by-step with demonstrations of the painting process.   If watercolor is your passion, then this highly energized painting workshop is for you! Paul’s stress-free, positive approach toward the act of painting will inspire you to loosen up and have fun again. Expect an intense, concentrated and lively workshop where you will elevate your understanding of watercolor.

Beginners are always welcome!

RHEA LEWIS PHOTOGRAPHY

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.
