ArtFest By The Sea

Standard

It was a busy weekend with shows in both Venice and Fort Lauderdale, also a windy weekend which presented a few problems but our fantastic artists pulled it off successfully.  Now we turn our attention to the beach, Juno Beach and  ArtFest by the Sea, a beloved show of many returns this weekend.  Nestled oceanfront along AIA in Juno Beach over 300 artists from around the country will set up their tents and display their beautiful pieces to the eager patrons.

Jupiter is right up the road and fans of the Jupiter Lighthouse will want to come out and meet Cam Chapman, a photographer who captures the Jupiter Lighthouse in some beautiful shots.  According to his website: “The sea is relentless and unforgiving, but also reassuringly consistent.  And I am in awe of its sentry, the lighthouse; how it silhouettes the endless sky, straddles the rugged land,
shoulders the powerful water.
It is portrait-worthy. It’s a rush, riding out to the shore on my Harley in the pre-dawn darkness, anticipating the moment of sunrise.  The ever-changing light, the shadows and reflections it casts, are amazing in this environment. But some days it does not find its balance, though the lighthouse stands ready. So I will return as often as needed, because it’s a waiting

game I love to play with the sun.  I will spend hours finessing its proper balance. To capture that light, just as it shapes my portrait composition perfectly, is when the timeless icons of the sea become art.I hope that you enjoy viewing these images, as much as I’ve enjoyed photographing them.”

Steve Vaughn will also be displaying a photo of the Jupiter Lighthouse, along with two other shots of the Jupiter Inlet.  Steve Vaughn is know for his sweeping panoramic photos, mostly covering tropical locations.  You can see more of his work here at his website.Speaking of the Jupiter Inlet, our poster image for ArtFest By the Sea was painted by April W Davis.  Gateway to Paradise, Jupiter Inlet captures the sunrise and the Jupiter Lighthouse and Inlet.  You can enter to win a Giclee of this image by clicking here.  April Davis has always found her artistic inspiration in the splendor of the surrounding natural environment. By using her inherent talent as an artist, she focuses on bringing out the beauty and tranquility of a specific scene. Since moving to Florida 15 years ago, April has become known for her brilliant tropical landscapes. Most recently April completed a cityscape of Lincoln Road in South Beach, FL – the second in a series she is creating of cities throughout the country. April is presently working from her new studio/gallery in Jupiter, FL. This Giclee is the fantastic results from an early morning venture to witness the sunrise on the Jupiter Inlet. Gateway to Paradise will be a lovely addition to your home!
