Last Friday evening, the three winning artists from our annual Island City Juried Art Exhibition delivered their art to the gallery and our curator, Robert Gross, his assistant, Celia Diaz, and volunteers Carol Finlayson and Dirk Eberle created a show that is all about the Sunshine State, the people and places that make Florida unique.
Dwight Hoffman, the first place winner, is showing some “old Florida” scenes that leave us longing for another time while his character studies leave us convinced that we know the person he has rendered so skillfully.
Louise Meredith‘s watercolors are lovingly painted with an impressionistic quality that draws the viewer in. And, Joan Glassman‘s art is exquisite in its details.
Truly a local art show of local artists painting what they see … Florida faces and places!
Please join us for an art social on Friday, April 15, 2016 at 7 PM and meet the artists! We’d love to see you again or meet you for the first time!
The gallery is open Fridays from 7 to 9 PM and by appointment through May 6th.
NOTE: It was brought to our attention that the image used to promote The Winner’s Show is actually a photograph belonging to Andy Royston for FtLauderdaleSun on Facebook. The selection of this image was based on the three palm trees to represent the three winners and we were not aware of the image’s ownership. It was discovered via a Google search which we consider a public domain. We apologize for this error as we are fans of Mr. Royston’s work. We did make a concerted effort to identify the artist, but failed in that effort. We believe it is very important to credit each and every artist for their creative endeavors. Had we known whose image it was, we would have asked in advance for permission to use it. We did not do that and we regret the error. Lesson learned.
