Paintings from Florida and Other Seascapes
June 26th through July 15th
Reception, Friday, July 6, 6:30 to 9:00 PM
Entertainment provided by the Driftway Jazz
An engineer by trade, Judi Getch Brodman paints strong and vibrant watercolors; her paintings reflect her love of the ocean brought on by spending her youthful summers in Wellfleet (Cape Cod) and her current winters in Highland Beach, Florida where she coaches a painting group. Her passion is bright sunshine, dark contrasts from the shadows, the feel of warm summer sunshine, long winter shadows, the vivid purples and blues of late winter days and cold winter water. She tries to include a building or structure in her paintings, attributing this quirk to her math background. She loves the perspective that comes with buildings, adding a 3-D feel to the painting. She paints in watercolors because they are unpredictable, a quality that scares a lot of artists, but one that she finds irresistible. She loves that the paint takes on a life of its own causing bleeds, drops, streams, all attainable only in watercolors. Articles about Judi and her work have appeared in the Boston Globe, the Coastal Star (a south Florida newspaper), and the Stowe, Vermont Guide where her painting graced the cover of the winter edition. Her degrees are a BA in Mathematics and a MS in Computer Engineering.
Josephine Schneider is a plein air painter working in oils, acrylic and pastel. She finds inspiration in the natural beauty of Florida’s west coast. Of special interest are the Ding Darling Wildlife Sanctuary on Sanibel Island and the unspoiled quality of Cedar Key. Her paintings are based on direct observation, yet the formal demands of the painting are equally important to her. She finds that the challenge is the tension between abstraction and reality. Josephine’s education includes Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture Summer Program, Wellesley College BA, Massachusetts College of Art BFA.
