Bruce Kotchey continues to work with VA veterans, Guild members and non-member each Thursday morning at City Hall. Beginning at 9:30. Participants work on projects ranging from still life to animals and to landscapes of Florida. The object of the instruction is to learn acrylic techniques, how to use various brushes and the medium and to complete a take-home masterpiece at the end of the morning.

Not all participants work in acrylic. It is a fun exercise and all are welcome. This is also Open Studio time for anybody to work on other projects they like.

If Bruce is not available, there will always be a still-life opportunity for artists each Thursday.
$3 for members and vets and $4 for non-members.

The Treasure Island Art Guild 2013 Winter Show is exhibiting the works of award winning artists Carolyn Beard, George Greenfield, Winnie McIntyre, Claire Paultre, Mary Ann Tucci, and Colleen Ward through February 27th at our Community Center.

A symphony of stunning color creates chasms of form in " Comanche Moon" and " House of the rising Sun" , the art of illustrious acrylic painter, Beard. Realism lends itself to the abstract in " Night Blooms" and “The Reef" , together spelling the lyrical touch of her brush.

Digital artist Greenfield, master of " visual impact" , delivers the carnivorous " Pitcher Plant" whose striking design and intense color captures its’ prey as well as the viewers’eye. While " Sleeper" suggests reality in a dream state, brilliant hues spill over into " Untitled" and " Green Peppers" .

Accomplished oil painter, McIntyre, introduces a portrait of lovely " Leymah" posed in a reflective moment. With bold primary colors, she gives us strong character studies in " Cuban Lady" and " African Boy" . " Life Together" stirs the emotions as it shows a viewer the essence of what it’s all about.

Representational fine artist Claire Paultre brings to life acrylics " Pelican at Rest" , " Bait House" , and a watercolor " The Causeway" . Her Haitian roots continue to speak of her sensitivity to the hues of the tropics in the dazzling acrylic " End of Day" , a poem without words.

Gleaning from an extensive background in art education, Tuccis’ acrylic abstracts successfully address drawing out emotions and interpretations as in " Volcano" and " Lattice Gone Wild" . " Geometry" , in its’ simplicity, calms the spirit. " Broken Heart" speaks to an " inner landscape" .

An acute sense of color harmony triumphs in the work of pastel artist and Guild President Colleen Ward. Layers of glowing hues perfume the air in " The Garden Path" and " Peaceful Reflections" . " Cabbage Key circa 1970’s" takes us to the vintage charm of a Florida of yesterday. The beauty of a limited palette and great composition gives us " Three Bags Full".

The Treasure Island Community Center is located on 106th Ave.,
just east of Gulf Blvd. Call (727)547-4575 for hours of operation.
