10th Anniversary Art Exhibition

JJ the Beast

Needless to say, in this time of Covid-19, everyone has to try hard to have a positive attitude and keep their spirits up. For me, that means FaceTime with my kids and grandkids, painting, playing golf, working out and staying in touch with good friends. Last week, I neglected to check what Gmail characterizes as Promotions and didn’t see that JJ the Beast had won Special Recognition in Light Space Time Online Gallery’s 10th Anniversary Art Exhibition, which opened online on Saturday and will remain on display until October 2nd. The gallery received 2,129 entries from 34 different countries as well as from 41 states and the District of Columbia.

I began entering art competitions at lightspacetime.art over three years ago, in April 2017, and have received Special Merit and Special Recognition for 28 of my paintings to date. Proud to be in such good company, I’m especially happy to have JJ the Beast applauded before this painting of him leaves for Wisconsin this fall with our granddaughter Maddie—as a reminder of home and everything she loves.

Breakout

I am thrilled and delighted to have been invited to participate in this international exhibition:
M.A.D.S. is a contemporary art gallery set up with screens, aimed to create a continuous multimedia exhibition with the use of new video system projection technologies. It’s the first fully digital multimedia gallery, exclusive and unique. Hundreds of artists from all over the world find in M.A.D.S. the answer to their needs: of exhibition, curatorial, of marketing and sales.
Then, allow me, with pleasure, to present you the next event 2020 by M.A.D.S.: the International Contemporary Exhibition “BREAKOUT” that will take place starting from July 17, 2020 and has been extended to August 7, 2020. Opening will be on Friday, July 17 inside the location in Milan, Corso San Gottardo 18, Italy.

Collateral Damage

Diva

 

Last month I entered five portraits of women in a competition at See.Me.com called “S/HE PERSISTED,” celebrating the power and strength of women for this year’s Art Takes Armory 2020 exhibitions, from March 4th to March 26th. On February 26th I received an email notifying me of this:

“After a long and thorough review by the jury panel, your work has been selected to receive a digital feature at the “S/he Persisted…” exhibition. Your entry did not rank in the top ten and was not selected as a prize-winning submission.

One of the images from your submission will be chosen by our curatorial team to be featured digitally on a large TV monitor at the exhibition. The image will be accompanied by a short excerpt from the written section of your submission and the name (for display purposes) you provided us with on the submission form.”

I was thrilled, of course, though I had no idea which of my entries had been chosen. I even briefly thought about flying up to New York for the opening at their event space on Lexington Avenue & 46th Street. COVID-19 put an end to that notion, and, of course, the event has been cancelled, along with almost everything else in New York and the country.

I received an email this weekend confirming that Diva was the painting that had been chosen for the event. This original Diva is on a 20” x 20” canvas, and I am coincidentally painting her again in a much larger format as a commission. Grateful that I can paint amidst all the insanity surrounding our lives right now, I’ll be posting another diva soon…

BallenIsles Art Club Revolving Exhibit

Lucky to have the chance to be included in the fourth Revolving Art Show this season at BallenIsles Country Club, I entered Rabbi Rich, the portrait I painted of my husband from a color photo taken of him the evening he officiated at the wedding of our son and daughter-in-law, and Argentine Tango, a celebration of the dancers I love to paint. The exhibit is up for viewing from February 3rd to March 9th.

 

 

 

 

 

Art Show 2020

I’ve had the privilege of exhibiting my work at the annual Art Expo at BallenIsles Country Club since 2006, where it’s always been a delight to see how many talented artists live and work in the community. After our clubhouse was razed and rebuilt in 2018-19, all interested parties met to form an Art Club, which includes both artists and members interested in art and boasts a membership of over 340 residents. For those interested in the arts, there are lectures, films and field trips designed to stimulate lively discussion and feed the soul. For the artists, there is now a schedule of open studio time for those who like to work on their own projects and appreciate the camaraderie and benefit of having other artists’ eyes on their work, as well as a variety of art classes offered with various professionals from late fall into spring. And…once again…there is an annual Art Show, with 67 artist members exhibiting their paintings, sculpture, photography and even needlepoint from January 14-19 in our beautiful clubhouse. It is a privilege to have an opportunity to show my work and a delight to admire the work of my fellow artists.

 

 

 

 

 

A Very Happy New Year

Seize the Day…Rose

I entered the LightSpaceTime Online Gallery’s 9th Annual All Women competition last month and was delighted to hear today that Seize the Day won Special Recognition in the Painting & Other Media Category for this exhibition of women artists. I was particularly pleased to win an award for a painting of a woman, by a woman, a gift for a woman who owns an event space that is run by women, giving it special meaning for me. All winning entries will now be featured on the Light Space & Time website for the month of January 2020 and will remain online in the Light Space & Time Archives.

 

 

A Perfect Ending

Lion’s Mane

 

It was a delight to come home after a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday with the family to find that I had won a Special Recognition Award for Lion’s Mane in the Light SpaceTime Online Gallery”s 9th Annual Nature Exhibition. 140 artists were recognized for outstanding art in the Painting and Other Media category, and I’m thrilled to be among them. The exhibition will be online at http://www.lightspacetime.art for the month of December.

The Lion’s Mane is the largest known species of jellyfish and the most gorgeous, its beauty belying its powerful stinger. I actually painted the bottom view, which looked like a flower to me and hid its signature orange and red tentacles. I continue to find painting somewhat transparent sea creatures like jellyfish and anemones a fascinating challenge.

   

BallenIsles Art Club Revolving Art Exhibits

On Saturday, November 2, the Ballenisles Art Club opened its first Revolving Art Exhibit outside the East dining room of the clubhouse. I was honored to be included in the first of what will be four to six week long art exhibits throughout the season. After our beautiful new clubhouse opened just one year ago, the artists and lovers of art who live here, at BallenIsles Country Club, formed a new Art Club that now has over 300 members and sponsors field trips and lectures and provides open studio time as well as art classes for its members. In addition to the Revolving Art Exhibits, Art Expo 2020, exhibiting a variety of mediums in work created by members of the Art Club, will open with a gala on the evening of January 15, 2020 and run through Sunday, January 19th. I’m happy to be a member of the Art Studio committee and the Art Show committee, since I’m so pleased to have a place to come and paint with other artists right here where I live, as well as new opportunities to exhibit my work.

Primary Colors Art Exhibition

I have often said that I love color, so the Primary Colors Arts Competition on www.lightspacetime.art seemed made for me, where at least one or more of the primary colors (red, blue and/or yellow) stood out as a primary artistic element in the artwork submitted. Now I am delighted to have won a Special Merit Award for Fantasy and Special Recognition for Steeplechase. There were 741 entries in the competition from 24 different countries around the world and 35 different states and D.C., so it’s an honor to be included among the award winners.

Fantasy

 

I painted Fantasy using old black and white movie posters from the 1930’s & 40’s of Loretta Young as my reference for the woman. I called the painting Fantasy, hoping it was ambiguous enough that some would think she is his fantasy and others think he is hers.

Steeplechase

 

I painted Steeplechase as a gift for my husband, who has great memories of his father taking him to George C. Tilyou’s Steeplechase Park in Coney Island to ride the mechanical ponies in a horserace, one of the highlights of his childhood.

 

The exhibition runs online through the month of July on http://www.lightspacetime.art.

The Affordable Art Fair

Reach

 

 

I was delighted to open this email yesterday from See|Me at http://www.see.me.com. Since I was unable to be in New York for the event, I had to wait until now to see which of my entries had been chosen. I was honored to see that Reach made the cut.

 

 

 

Dear Nancy Satin:

It’s been an honor to show your work as part of The Affordable Art Fair. Your work was on view on March 27th – 31st, 2019 at: The Affordable Art Fair, Metropolitan Pavilion, 125 West 18th Street, New York, NY 10011. Without question, the act of creation has always been a historical marker; a civilization’s culture is judged first and foremost by the art left behind. Just as archaeologists offer hypotheses about ancient societies based on cave paintings, historians of the future will base their conjectures about us on the contemporary art that is happening at this very moment. As technology makes our world more interconnected, the act of creation has become a universal language and a vital conversation. Your art represented at the annual Affordable Art Fair is a thrilling contribution to that dialogue. Thank you for sharing your talent with us and with the world.

Best of the Clubs 2019 | Exhibition at the Lighthouse Artcenter

Dancing With the Stars

I attended yet another lovely reception at the Lighthouse Artcenter in Tequesta, FL, on Thursday evening, March 21st, for the Best of the Clubs juried exhibition, which ran through March 28th. This was the largest exhibition of paintings, photographs and 3D art from more country club communities than they’ve ever displayed before, and I’m happy to have Dancing With the Stars included in such good company! Now that I’m a full time Florida resident, I look forward to joining the Lighthouse Artcenter as a member, giving me more opportunities to show my work at this impressive venue for artists.   

Silent Auction

I try to contribute to the BallenIsles Charitable Foundation for its good work for the Palm Beach Gardens community in some way every year. This year, I donated a painting to the Silent Auction at the close of a long weekend of sold out activities and had a lovely write up in the preview for the festivities.

Some say it was a pear Eve ate…

Some say it was a pear Eve ate…, an unframed oil on canvas by Nancy Satin, measures 40” x 30.” But look closely and you will see a “Da Vinci Code” in the painting. Be sure to mount your new painting across from a mirror so that you can read the message! Nancy Satin, originally from the Boston area, is now a local Florida artist. She has participated in many Art Exhibitions, including our local Lighthouse ArtCenter. Her website is: www.nancysatinart.com. Nancy is a BallenIsles resident.
