SEPTEMBER: Michele Jaffe & Linda Urcioli

Show dates: September 11 - October 6, 2014

All are invited to the show reception during Milford's "Art After Dark" on Saturday, September 13th from 6-9pm.

Michele Jaffe

One may describe Michele Jaffe's life as 'a painting interrupted.' After graduating from Port Jervis High School, Michele found herself pondering the direction of life. Discovering her passion and talent for putting paint to canvas, Buzz Wallace, then Art Director of Orange County Community College, encouraged her to paint. Though life, for Michele, had other plans and instead of painting, she focused her creativity on raising her six children with her husband in Bethesda, MD. Michele then moved back to the area over twenty years ago and she has watched her children grow up and out, one by one, so giving her the opportunity to begin to revisit her 'painting interrupted.' Whether it is the winding Delaware River, a snow laden barn, or a rustic garden chair left behind, her audience is able to effortlessly connect to the subjects in her pieces. Michele's paintings are calm and familiar, often regional and realistic, full of color and optimism. Presently, as a member of The Artery Gallery, Michele finds herself in that comfortable and inspiring place where art and community meet and has studied with Tom Murphy, Kevin Storms, Peter Fiore and Marie Liu. Michele Jaffe lives on top of a mountain in Pike County, with her dog, Artie, where she can finally paint, uninterrupted.

Linda Urcioli

Linda Urcioli has studied many years with master artist John Philip Osborne. She is primarily a still life painter but also loves landscape and portraits. She is drawn to many mediums including sculpture and woodcut printing and encaustic. She had many fine teachers. Linda went to the American Woodcarving School in Wayne NJ, the Ridgewood Art Institute in NJ, and the Old Church Cultural Center in Demarest NJ. She is a teacher of metaphysics and has an equal love for both the art world and the spirit world, for her they are not separate expressions. She has been accepted into many juried shows and has won awards but it is the pure enjoyment that drives her to be creative and not the accolades.
