Presenting Five Florida Artists

Art Gallery 21 is pleased to present the extraordinary work of five local artists: Rosemary Lisa Boyd, Monika Hurter, Barbara Pardon, Angie Riserbato and Aviva Sasson are local painters, each with a distinctively different style. The range of mediums includes oil, watercolor, acrylic and mixed media and we feel confident in saying everyone will see something they like!

We hope you will join us at 7 PM on Saturday, November 4, 2017 to meet the artists and experience the charm of Art Gallery 21, located in the former Woman’s Club of Wilton Manors. The exhibit will be open to the public until December 2, 2017.

If you aren’t able to join us for the opening, don’t worry. The gallery will be open on Saturday, November 18 for the ART EXPO (art walk) on Wilton Drive.

Art Gallery 21, Inc. is a nonprofit organization working in partnership with Wilton Manors Leisure Services Department to bring more art experiences to the Island City. We are located at 600 NE 21 Court, Wilton Manors, FL 33305, next to the volleyball court at the northeast corner of Hagen Park, just east of Wilton Drive.

Summertime and the living is easy …

UPDATE: Wilton Drive will be closed as will all City buildings for the annual Gay Pride Festival. We are postponing the gallery opening to Saturday, June 24 at 7 PM. We apologize for the inconvenience.

It sounds trite, but, where did the time go? It seems as though it is slipping away, into the future. All the more reason to welcome summertime. The snow birds are gone, school is out and the pace is laid back and easy. Let’s enjoy it, shall we?

This Saturday evening at 7 PM we will open our newest exhibition of art, showcasing the works of Darlene Fenster, Carol Finlayson, Barbara Pardon, Heidi Reiter and Henry Rhommerdahl. As is our practice, there will be an art social, an opportunity for visitors to meet the artists, to talk about art, and, to make new friends or meet up with old ones. There is art worthy of our attention and, once again, there are surprises in this show. But, you have to come see for yourself!

Please join us on Saturday, June 17th, or, visit any Saturday through July 15th. We would love to see you again or meet you for the first time!

Gallery Summer Hours: Saturdays, 7 to 9 PM

Art Works!

As we say goodbye to the Smithsonian exhibit, we’re also saying “Hello!” to a new art show! There’s no grass growing under these feet! Our curator, Robert Gross, and his assistant, Celia Diaz, have created another special showcase of artists and we hope you will join us to celebrate the way Art Works … the way individuals add beauty to the world with canvas and paint … the way that beauty brings us together to share in the joy of creativity … and, the way that joy spills over into our daily life, often enriching our lives in ways we hadn’t previously considered. THAT, my friends, is how Art Works!

Join us at 7 PM this Saturday, May 13th as we unveil the art of Mark Baker, Martha DeMarco, Joan Glassman, Doris Goldberg, Mollie Lesnick and Angie Riserbato! As usual, we will serve refreshments and the artists will be present to chat with visitors and answer questions about their work. Come connect with us! Let us show you how Art Works! We’d love to see you again or meet you for the first time!

EXHIBIT HOURS: Saturdays from 7 to 9 PM and by appointment, through June 12th.

Art Gallery 21 is located in the former Woman’s Club of Wilton Manors at 600 NE 21 Court, one block east of Wilton Drive at the northeast corner of Hagen Park.
