FEBRUARY NCAA MEETING WILL BE AT THE LIGHTHOUSE SCHOOL on Seabrook Avenue. Sean Kelley is going to demonstrate airbrush techniques.
Both the Tuesday and Friday Plein-aire sessions have been going very well and will continue through February. It is just great getting outside and enjoying our beautiful area. Carol Frezza joined us last Friday and REALLY painted a lovely scene at Saw Fish Bay Park...and she hadn't painted outdoors in a long time. Linda Hastings has been coming and she said that she had never painted outdoors before!
Bill Sabino meets with his group at the Village Art Studios at 10:00 AM on Tuesdays, before deciding on a location for the day.
I schedule a group on Fridays at 12:00 PM at locations listed on the calendar below. Contact me at 561-707-5863, if you have any questions.
February is rich with art fairs and important shows:
..Hudson River School Masterpieces and Jewels from the Marjorie Merriweather Post Collection are both at The Society of the Four Arts in Palm Beach through March 20. They have a full schedule for the season and I have never been disappointed in their exhibits or concerts.
..The American International Fine Art Fair is at the Convention Center in West Palm Beach from February 5 - 13 and is fabulous. The recent Contemporary Show at the Convention Center got my creative juices into overload...it was quite fresh and astounding.
..The Palm Beach Jewelry, Art and Antiques Show is from February 18 - 22, also at the Convention Center.
..The Fine Craft Show is the first week in March at the Convention Center.
THE LIGHTHOUSE ART CENTER has a big event planned for this Thursday at 5:30...It is the ARTIBRA Fashion Show and Sale to benefit Jupiter Hospital.
The Contempo Show was full of strong work by local artists and their 3RD THURSDAY program was one of the best ever. Thirteen artists from the show were asked to submit ten jpegs of recent work and each had five minutes to tell their stories. I was very flattered to be asked and enjoyed each artists' variety of experiences that were reflected in the work.
The next shows at the LIGHTHOUSE will open next week. The Wildlife Photography Juried Show will include several NCAA members. There will also be an exhibit by Highwaymen Artists and the important Golf exhibit that will have extensive memorabilia and could possibly attract a whole new audience to the Art Center.
PLEASE REMEMBER TO SEND YOUR DUES!!!!!!! I sent out reminders and hope that you respond quickly. Send $35 to: Virginia Furey, 13222 Saint Tropez Cir., PBG, Fl. 33410
