Tequesta, Florida - This astonishing exhibition falls into the NEVER GOING TO COME AROUND AGAIN category. Fern Samuels Retrospective Show and Sale to benefit the Lighthouse ArtCenter runs Tuesday, November 8th – Saturday, November 12th with a reception to celebrate her memory on Thursday, November 10th from 5:30 – 7:30 p.m.
Fern Samuels received her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Loyola University in Chicago, Illinois, and her Master of Fine Arts from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. She retired from the Art Department of Columbia College Chicago, where she taught for twenty-five years as an associate professor.
Upon retirement a scholarship was established in her name to help needy art students. Samuels was a founder and past president of ARC Gallery, one of the first women’s cooperative galleries in the world.
Samuels had twenty solo exhibitions and fifteen museum shows plus numerous group shows. She won nine first place awards during her career.
She was a member of the National Society of Women Artists, a founding member of Florida Artists Group, and she’s listed in Who’s Who in America and Who’s Who of American Women.
Upon her passing, Fern Samuels’ work was donated to the Lighthouse ArtCenter for a retrospective show and sale to benefit the ArtCenter, where she was an active participant. Janeen Mason, Curator, worked closely with Ms. Samuels’ family to determine reasonable prices so everyone can afford to collect a piece of Fern’s spectacular art.
