What is a Florida Painter?


We’re so glad you asked!

Dirk Eberle is a Florida Painter. He’s also one of our devoted volunteers, assisting our gallery curator, Robert Gross, with hanging the shows. You might think it’s easy to just hang art on the walls, but, there’s some thought that goes into it. Each artist has a story to tell, and, Bob knows how to allow the art to reveal what that story is. With Dirk’s assistance, they create a beautiful art exhibit every single time. Visit the gallery and you’ll see what we mean.

Saturday, June 9, 2018 at 7 PM, Art Gallery 21 will unveil its first summer exhibit, THE FLORIDA PAINTERS. Please join us for a refreshing beverage, a little conversation and some jaw-dropping local fine art. You will be surprised to discover oils and watercolors and pastels rendering Florida landscapes and studies of local flora and fauna. You’ll see character studies of everyday items that evoke a connection between the art, the artist and the viewer. It’s a lovely experience and we hope you’ll come spend a little time with us and share in the art at your neighborhood art gallery, Art Gallery 21. We’d love to see you again or meet you for the first time.
