this Saturday …

Art Gallery 21 welcomes one of our resident artists, Heidi Reiter, as gallery docent this Saturday evening, June 30th, from 7 to 9 PM! Heidi’s work as a visual artist isn’t her only talent either! She is also a musician, so, there’s no telling what might happen while she’s on duty! Make sure to stop in and say “hello” and see the art show. You know you want to! And, we’re sure you’ll be glad you did! We are definitely worth the detour from Wilton Drive!

Art Gallery 21 will be closed July 7 to September 22 when we will hold art intake for our 7th Annual Island City Juried Art Exhibition, our first art show of the 2017-2018 season. Entry rules and guidelines will be available here on our web site on Tuesday, July 3, 2018. Thanks for another great year supporting the arts in Wilton Manors!

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.

Artists You Need To Know

Yep. You need to know these folks! Mark Baker, Amanda Carney, Carol Finlayson, Patty Maceri and Yvette Vás. Remember those names! They are some of the finest artists around these parts, yet each is unique unto him or her self. When we assembled their art and created this exhibit, we discovered a delightful collection of oil and watercolor paintings with subject matter ranging from delicate landscapes to bold still lifes, like the one shown here … Bobby Dee takes 5 by Mark Baker.
