June 9th, 2018 (5-8pm) Saturday Art Walk – Amelia Island, FL

In addition to beautiful beaches, Amelia Island is also known for upscale galleries, fantastic restaurants and beautiful boutiques.

On the second Saturday of each month, participating galleries host art events and open houses during the second Saturday for Artrageous ArtWalk come on out and shop for Dad! June 9th, 2018 (5-8pm) Saturday Art Walk is a great way to avoid the high temperatures as shops and galleries are open late into the evening. Plan a great evening in Fernandina – call in to see my new works exhibiting.

Coastal Inspiration

Hello from Florida! Get set for a great summer! I love exploring the coastline and have already had a few glorious weekends in Amelia Island visiting one of my gallery’s Art on Centre. It’s a must see if your in the area and it’s well worth a trip, also try to catch the Saturday morning farmers market every weekend located near the gallery. The Stuffed Garlic Olives are so good in salads or a cocktail if your so inclined. All farm fresh local vendors.

Recently we also explored Georgia’s stunning Jekyll Island and South Carolina’s Hilton Head. I’m so inspired by the beautiful beaches and marshlands in these places that are so close to our home in St. Augustine, Fl.

Plum Gallery in the heart of the historic art district, downtown St Augustine is always my local presence – close to home! Here I showcase new paintings. Exhibitions run for three months, so four times a year there is always new and inspirational works being showcased.

If your in south Florida this summer be sure to visit my gallery representation in Naples, Fl – Gardner Colby Galleries.

Traveling is fun, and this is my first test uploading a post from my phone on the go! I really should have mastered this before now but this is an attempt to make the blog more spontaneous.


The two paintings featured are inspired by my recent travel –

Glorious Oaks

60 x 60 x 1.5 Oil on Canvas by Claire J Kendrick

Claire J Kendrick is an artist whose paintings reflect Florida landscapes with bold, rich, beautiful colors. Collectors respond to the contemporary style and the expressive way in which she paints. The big open vistas and the marsh views that stretch for miles are amongst her favorite places to be.

“This is a hot climate and colorful coast it’s a joy to live here. I love the expanse of the marshlands, the big cloudscapes, the scenery is dramatic and I try to express that in my paintings. When you’re out painting in these isolated places it feels like you have the world to yourself. The subtle shifts of light can in a moment calm or energize the environment. The paintings on exhibition are color sensations, passionate responses, and magical experiences.”

She grew up in the Irish countryside and as a child explored painting “en plein air” with local artists. One of her first exhibitions of landscape paintings was at the age of fifteen.

“Artists need to have a vision, they have to be fearless and sometimes challenge uncharted territory. It’s having the strength of character to forge ahead with an idea or concept way before the consensus of approval. It’s about taking time to see the beauty and potential in a fast paced life.”

Trá

Trá – meaning beach in Irish 60×60 Oil on Canvas

Living on the east coast of the United States I look out on the Atlantic Ocean and I’m challenged as an artist to capture its vastness. The high seas and big storm fronts remind me of my native home, Ireland, the North West Outpost of Europe. Those memories combined with the ferociousness of the weather fronts brings a depth and passion to my work, yet the stillness and peace of the southern shores is a soothing calm and is both a joy and quest to capture as a plein air and studio painter.

Silver Wings

60 x 60 x 1.5 Oil on Canvas by Claire J Kendrick

Silver Wings, the light flashed and changed on the wings of these gulls diving for fish.

Symbolically the ocean is a sign of power and strength, due to its immensity. Observing and painting the great power of the ocean and its weather fronts is much like having a front row seat at the theater. As a plein air painter there is an urgency and need to capture the essence of your vista – it’s sparked by emotion and energy. Then the atmosphere and weather of the outdoors adds to the paintings aliveness. All this –- the vigor of life is to be conveyed onto a canvas. It is a love, and a challenge.
