Blooming beauty in artwork by Luisa Comizzo

This month’s featured artist is Luisa Comizzo whose favorite subject matter for artwork is flowers.  Fitting that such an accomplished artist helps welcome spring and all of the natural beauty blooming in south Florida.

Luisa was born in Italy and is a self-taught artist who first explored her creativity through drawing when she was a young girl.

While her initial artistic expression was through colored pencil and ink, Luisa began exploring the use of oils during her time living in Venezuela.

What started as work on miniatures and small canvases grew in size as Luisa discovered more ways to make the ideas in her mind flow into her brush strokes and into stunning works of art.

Vivid life on canvas

Luisa Comizzo’s love and appreciation for flowers is evident in her large paintings of them. Living in Boca Raton has helped Luisa build on and improve her artistic talent so that now her flowers on canvas appear three-dimensional and as though they could bloom to life right from the artwork.

Nature is dear to Luisa’s heart and her creations feature rich colors, fluid lines and a highly effective use of shadows and light.

One almost feels the warmth of the sunlight the flowers in her paintings are thriving in and they’re a breathtaking reflection of the endless sunshine in Florida at Mizner Park events.

Bountiful arts to enjoy in Boca Raton

NPSIR’s Evening with the Artist is a unique monthly event that brings emphasis to the extensive artistic talent throughout Boca Raton and Delray Beach.

There are plentiful opportunities to enjoy the arts, culture and entertainment aspects of southern Florida and Mizner Park events offer excitement and interest for everyone.

The Mizner Park Amphitheater has weekly events that feature area restaurants, live music and fund raising events for notable causes like Autism Speaks. Whether residents want to stroll through downtown, take in artwork, listen to live music, shop or dine, it’s available at Mizner Park events.

028_1Featured Artist for January: Lee Roi Hutton

NPSIR’s Evening with the Artist event for January featured Lee Roi Hutton. Lee was born in Houston, Texas and first explored and expressed his creative side in the School of American Ballet in New York.

His ballet talents enabled him to explore worldwide. When an injury ended his ballet career, Lee found a new outlet for his creativity through drawings on paper that eventually developed into acrylic paintings on canvas. He received formal training at Art Students League of New York City and eventually transitioned into oil painting as he continued to explore new ways of expressing his imagination through his artwork.

South Florida Expanded Lee Roi Hutton’s Vision

Moving permanently from New York to South Florida, Lee now brings the beauty of the tropical region into his artwork with vibrancy and depth. Paintings feature colors that reflect, mimic and highlight the bright Florida skies, lush greenery and unique earth tones. Anyone who missed the January event can view his artwork on display and for sale at NPSIR’s Sales Office until February 13, 2014.

NPSIR Continues Sotheby’s Art Involvement

From the first auction of valuable books in 1744 by their founder, Samuel Baker, Sotheby’s has been heavily invested in the arts. Throughout generations, Sotheby’s has expanded to become involved with fine arts, jewelry, wine and ultimately, their own institute of art. Sotheby’s is infinitely more than a worldwide real estate agency and their knowledge, experience and professionalism in the arts extends into everything they do. It’s natural then that NPSIR continues that art involvement with our monthly An Evening with the Artist event.

`

The Sunshine Blues Festival is in its second year and promises to be even better this year than last. The event starts Saturday, January 18th and runs all day long on two stages.

The first day of the event takes place in the Mizner Park Amphitheater and is an exciting way to kick off the New Year. While it’s hard to be blue amid such beautiful weather, it’s easy to enjoy listening to the blues beneath clear skies as tropical breezes stir the air for Mizner Park events.

Performers at the event include headliners The Tedeschi Trucks Band and other amazing musical artists including The Ringers featuring Jimmy Herring from Widespread Panic, JJ Grey, Leon Russell and many others. Read more about the artists here: http://www.sunshinebluesfestival.com/artists/

When to Arrive and Where to Park

The Sunshine Blues Festival begins at noon on Saturday with doors opening at 11:30 a.m. Free parking for Mizner Park events at the amphitheater is available at both Boca Raton libraries and City Hall.

There are no pets, outside food or chairs allowed in this event but there will be an assortment of beverages available including craft beers and food from a diverse variety of the local restaurants.

Seating is provided in the amphitheater and attendees are encouraged to enjoy the entertainment on both stages throughout the day.

Bringing the Blues and Amping the Energy

Mizner Park in Boca Raton is always bustling with life but The Sunshine Blues Festival magnifies the energy of this popular south Florida destination. The live event brings fresh vibrancy to Mizner Park events and shakes off the post-holiday daze in the best way possible.

Getting out and about among crowds of people who aren’t fighting over merchandise or searching doggedly for the perfect gifts but who are instead having light-hearted fun is a perfect way to remember that everyone can get together and get along in social venues.

The Sunshine Blues Festival brings everyone back down to earth to share in live music, delicious drinks and delectable food.

A Memorable Debut

Despite the inclement weather of last year’s debut of The Sunshine Blue’s Festival, a crowd of at least 4000 spectators came out to enjoy the live music. A review in the Naples News described the laid-back style of the festival as “reminiscent of the classic music festivals of the Sixties and Seventies…no glitzy costumes, no dancers, no floor show. These players came to lay down the blues.”

American Blues Scene Magazine describes the festival as a way to carry on Florida’s rich tradition in the blues, which includes giving the world The Allman Brothers, Ray Charles, Tom Petty and now The Tedeschi Trucks Band, or TTB to their fans.

The Sunshine Blues Festival is the first of many exciting upcoming Mizner Park events that cater to all styles of entertainment tastes. Shake off the mid-winter blues and get out in the sunshine to hear just how hot the blues can be!
