Iron Palette Art Battle At Hollywood ArtsPark

I am looking forward to participating in South Florida’s first Iron Palette Art Battle located at Hollywood Arts park, Sunday, December 15, 2013 from 7-10pm. 

Iron Palette Art Battle

Four prominent South Florida artists will be painting in a two hour timed painting battle.  Lori Pratico, Richard Del Ponte, Tabitha Blaine and Jacklyn Laflamme will compete for the Iron Palette Trophy and cash award, winner takes all event.   

The artists will be given their subject matter ½ hour before the painting starts and they are allowed to use the media of their choice.  The competition will be judged by the audience with a live voting system that puts the winner in the audience hands.

After the painting ends at 9 pm, there will be a auction of the finished pieces and awards ceremony.   This event is appropriate for all members of the family as these great artists create their vision on a large 36 x 48 canvas on stage, live.

Slow Art Day

Slow Art Day is a global event run by volunteers with a simple mission: Help more people to discover for themselves the joy of looking at and loving art.

For one day every year, people all over the world visit local museums and galleries to look at art slowly. Participants look at five works of art for ten minutes each and then meet to over lunch to discuss the experience.

Enjoying Slow Art Day at Art Serve With Deborah Kerr, Micheal Harris, and other local artists

In October 2009, the program launched in 16 museums and galleries across the United States, Canada and Europe. In the spring , it expanded to 55 locations spanning six continents, with nearly 2,000 participants. Currently there are 252 plus venues around the world that are now participating in Slow Art Day.

The Power To Slow Down…

We all have the power to stop and smell the roses, but with our busy lives and full schedules sometimes we forget to slow down and really appreciate the beauty that surrounds us. In this particular case for me personally it was a great experience. I admit that I am always on the run and have never taken the time to walk around the building and really appreciate the public art work at Art Serve. It made me think about what else I might be missing. We should  all practice  taking a break to relax, look around and celebrate the art and culture that is abundant in our communities.

I would like to Thank all the volunteers that make this day possible!

Painting Live At Gallery One

The Greater Fort Lauderdale Alliance worked with Art Serve and invited artists to paint live at the event Palette To Palate at Gallery ONE – A DoubleTree Suites by Hilton Hotel.

I had a blast painting live, high heels and all!

A work in progress.

Almost finished.

The Power of painting live is very exhilarating…

It is a form of improvisational performance art, in which artists complete a visual art piece in a public performance. In this particular case I had two hours to complete a 4′ x 6′ canvas. Using spray paint and markers, I completed the task. It is a contrast to working in the studio and having the gift of time to create, detailed fine art.

I would like to thank The Greater Fort Lauderdale Alliance and  Art Serve for allowing me to create, paint and share my work, at their wonderful event!
