The traffic was awful around Broward this week! It wasn’t until yesterday that we realized it stemmed from the arrival of the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show and the kazillion visitors it brings with it! Oh! My!
In fact, big events like the boat show are good for all of us! They bring visitors to our businesses, including the local art galleries in Wilton Manors! Because we’re “off the beaten path,” we’re inviting folks visiting Wilton Drive tonight to make that little turn onto NE 21 Court and walk one block east to find us. We offer a beautiful selection of original art by local artists at amazing (affordable) prices! While you’re there, you’ll meet Dirk Eberle, a local artist who has created delicate watercolor images that will just blow your mind! He’s a gentle soul with a remarkable gift!
If you’re in the market for art or an art experience or to simply check out the local art scene, we hope you will stop by and visit Art Gallery 21! We’d love to see you again or meet you for the first time!
The Island City Art Market is a showcase of 40 original works of art, all produced by 21 local fine artists. All art offered is framed and ready to hang. This is our final week for the exhibit which will close on Saturday evening, September 12th, with an art social.
Tyce is new to Art Gallery 21! We discovered his talent when he submitted two of his paintings for our annual Island City Juried Art Exhibition earlier this year! And, yes! He won!
A painter of traditional style, Tyce creates art with oils on canvas and gesso panels, watercolors, pastels and pencil drawings. He is a graduate of the Swain School of Design in New Bedford, Massachusetts, It’s clear that his work is influenced by living on the coast as he specializes in seascapes.
Tyce has exhibited his work in galleries in New Bedford and Cape Cod, Massachusetts, Lewes, Delaware, and here in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. We are absolutely charmed with Tyce’s art and with his lovely wife, Gail! We’re very pleased that Tyce will be the featured artist in an exhibit with us beginning April 15, 2016.

Patti’s mother was the first to recognize her talent and she encouraged her daughter’s development by enrolling Patti in painting classes at the Joy Rubin Art School in Hollywood, Florida at an early age. She later attended art classes during her middle and high school years and was introduced to different mediums, which further cultivated her interest in art. So, it should come as no surprise that when it came time to declare her major in college, she knew what it would be! ART!
In 2012, Patti enrolled in oil and watercolor classes with our esteemed colleague, Robert Gross. As is his teaching style, Bob has served as Patti’s mentor and encouraged her to take her work in new directions, including participating in local art shows. In fact, she is a winner of the gallery’s very own Island City Juried Art Competition!
Patti has become a devoted volunteer at Art Gallery 21 and we admire her spirit of community service as much as we admire her talent! They are a dynamic combination and we are very grateful to have her in our corner!
