It’s the month of love and we’re loving the art in our newest exhibit which opens Saturday, February 4th at 7 PM when you can meet the artists  … Robert Gross, Celia Diaz, Dirk Eberle, Errol Gross, Natalee Jones and Louise Meredith! They will all be on hand to meet you and talk about their work or anything else you’d like to discuss. Our artists are among the most sociable folks you’ll ever meet!

This exhibit is a showcase of some of the finest local artists there are here in Broward County and their work will be on display through March 4, 2017.

Art Gallery 21 is located in the former Woman’s Club of Wilton Manors, 600 NE 21 Court, in the heart of the Arts & Entertainment District. Gallery open Saturdays through February.

We’re going to reveal the first new art exhibition of the season tomorrow night and we’re all pretty excited. The artists are bringing some munchies and some wine and Shawn of Shawn & Nick’s Courtyard Cafe is bringing trays of hot foods for us as well! Our “art socials” are always a lot of fun and you never know who you might run into! The artists are in a celebratory mood because they’re showing their art, and, honestly … nothing makes an artist happier than sharing their work!

Once the new show is open, we’re going to resume our efforts to SELL ART! The artists in this show are all über talented and worthy of any patron’s hard earned dollars. Should you visit the gallery, you would see oils, watercolors and gouache renderings of landscapes and still lifes alongside delicate studies that will mesmerize your brain. Robert Gross and Dirk Eberle are two of the best (if not THE best) watercolor artists in these parts. Their work is at once realistic and otherworldly. Their exquisite mastery of their medium is truly a vision to behold. I’ve watched folks stand in front of one of their paintings for as much as twenty minutes, studying the hidden beauty that is captured there. Now, to find those blessed souls who will purchase one (or two) of their paintings! That would really give us all cause for celebration!

Presenting the Art of Celia Diaz, Robert Gross et al.

CELIA_DIAZ_0016CELIA DIAZ

Art Gallery 21 is blessed to have Celia Diaz as one of its founding members and resident artists! Originally from El Salvador where she was a physician, Celia has lived in Fort Lauderdale with her husband for more than twenty years. Should you meet her in person, don’t be deceived by her sweet and unassuming personality or her petite and fragile appearance. When you see her art, it won’t take two seconds to realize she is an artistic force to be reckoned with!

Celia loved art as a child and studied drawing in El Salvador. However, her studies to become a medical doctor and her career left little time for artistic endeavors. It wasn’t until she arrived in Florida that art became a truly important influence in her life. She attributes her development to the teachings of Robert Gross, but, Bob says she was, and continues to be, an exceptional student.

Still Life by Celia Diaz | 7.5″x4″ framed | Watercolors | $250

Whether working in oils or watercolors, Celia’s love of human anatomy is evident in her realistic portraits and self portraits, while her landscape and still life paintings portray the beauty in everyday life with delicacy and detail.

Call or text 954-661-4740 to visit the gallery and see Celia’s art work.

Art Gallery 21 is pleased to present a buyer’s market of fine Florida art at affordable prices. Because we are a neighborhood gallery, we can offer the work of local artists without the overhead of a for-profit gallery thanks to the support of the City of Wilton Manors. 15% of each sale goes to support the gallery, a Florida nonprofit organization.
