Once again 110 East Atlantic Avenue in Delray Beach has an exhibit by local artists with dynamic artistic expression in acrylic, pastel, oil, watercolor, photography, and sculpture, which is worth seeing. Expressive Art will be on exhibit through September 30, 2011, and tomorrow, Thursday, September 1, 7:00 – 9:00 p.m. the public is invited to meet the artists at a reception with drinks and light refreshments.
The artists include Lynda Kidd of NEENU by Design, an Artists of Palm Beach County (APBC) board member. In 1965, Lynda opened The Needlepoint Gallery of Boca Raton (Florida) and Gallery School of Needlearts. After moving to Historic Delray Beach in 1996, she continued to teach and design, and she expanded into the interior decorative arts: glassware, tile, silk, and floorcloths. Today NEENU creates “one of a kind” treasures that include every type of beverage glass from wine to beer. She also creates vases & decanters using designs from flamingos to fish, and larger “presentation” pieces for table or mantle display. Lynda’s canvas floorcloths and glasswork will be on exhibit.
Fellow APBC board member and award winning artist, Jean Hutchison, is presenting her Bear Series, a number of vivid oil paintings. Born in Waukegan, Illinois, north of Chicago, Jean began to draw as soon as she could hold a crayon, and as a child her parents took her for lessons at the Art Institute of Chicago. She states when she went to pharmacy school at the University of Wisconsin “for my elective credits I took art classes with some very fine instructors including John Wilde.”
Her passion for both science and art developed into an interest in evolution and portraying the animal kingdom. “I go to the zoos and animal rescue facilities to draw and have had the opportunity for extensive travel where I photograph and draw the more unusual animals. I also study the human body, so I draw and paint from live models as often as possible.”
Harold Jacobson and previous Examiner profile subject, Gisela Pferdekamper, also are exhibiting their works. If you can’t get to the reception on Thursday, gallery hours are Monday through Thursday 9:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m., Friday 9:00 a.m. – 9:00 p.m., and Saturday evenings 6:00 – 9:00 p.m.
