New Impressionist Society on display December 11 through January 14, 2011

  • New Impressionists Society:
    • Our intent is to gather the best and most unique talent for Private shows and Sales in the Southeast USA and European markets. With collectors and centers of influence, we will establish a new and vibrant array of talent and bring in new and exciting technique to the world of art and impressionism.
    • I had started the group in July of 2010 and am in the process of adding new members nationally and internationally. The purpose of the group was to show talent that otherwise would not be seen because the artist did not have centers of influence to be able to show their works.
    • We have had significant group shows in Jacksonville this year (2010) and as a group we had our first two Jacksonville shows at the "L Gallery" in the Modis Building downtown on the street level gallery for the entire months of August and September.
  • Artists:
    • Terese Muller:
      • Currently, I am working in mixed media on large wood panels. My art is a reflection of the Florida landscape that I have come to love. Subconsciously, this new artwork displays my growing concern over environmental issues. Built up in layers and sanded between each one, my work shows depth, age and beauty that reach beyond a 2-D image. It draws the viewer in to see what lies beneath. In Jacksonville, I am a member of several art organizations and am president of the Jacksonville Watercolor Society for 2010.
    • Ralph Mantia:
      • I worked in the graphic arts field for over 20 years as a graphic designer and then owner of a design studio for 20 years. After spending time in retirement, I renewed my first joy of painting. The majority of the subject matter in my paintings are people and situations. I consider myself a realist with a modern technique and style. My medium is acrylic on stretched canvas communicating images in my life.
    • Louise Hooper:
      • Those who view and purchase oil paintings by Louise Hooper often comment on her vibrant colors as well as the quality of her brush strokes and lines. Her trademark is to work quickly with loose brush strokes in an impressionistic style.
      • A native of Atlanta, Georgia, Louise lived in Dallas, Texas for many years where she worked as a commercial real estate broker. In 2001 she returned to Georgia, moving to St. Simons Island rich in history, beauty and tranquility. Here she was able to pursue her life goal of drawing and painting.
      • Louise's training includes a BFA degree in drawing and painting from the University of Georgia, four years of academic study with Jeanne Nelson Szabo, weekly studio sessions with Ken Wallin and numerous workshops with other nationally acclaimed artists. Travels to France, Italy and Mexico for study have further broadened and enriched her art experiences.
    • Khamil Ojoyo:
      • Expressing my thoughts as an artist is a critical extension of who I am as person. Freedom of expression is extremely important to me, therefore, whenever I produce a work of art, I am allowing the viewer to extract a thought or an expression that sometimes is difficult for me to verbalize.
    • Rocco Catucci:
      • A visual or musical artist is only developing what makes sense to them at the time with no regard to hidden messages or meanings. Certain sounds work well together so they become a melody. Certain colors work well together so they become a painting. A visual artist works with the medium they have chosen or that is readily available. Simply put; The colors and layout work with them at the time so that is what is completed.

        “An artist is only someone who can transfer an idea from his or her sub-conscience to an outside medium. There is nothing heavy or metaphysical about art. Anyone who has to go on why their art is so special because it "speaks of our inner being and the pangs of life" or that it means "a special co-existence with the universe" is usually trying to justify a lack of talent. We do what we do because we want to, and it appeals to us at the time....” RC
