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!

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.

 

Celebrate the season with art!

Art Gallery 21 is super excited about the show scheduled to open Friday, December 9th! Come celebrate the season with us and meet the exciting lineup of artists!

We have an exciting new artist whose work is very impressive: R. R. Robinson. We’ve seen the art and we can hardly wait to meet the artist! Her work is reminiscent of watercolor illustrations in a storybook and we think you’ll be as charmed as we are!

jose_time_imaginary_time_1We’re thrilled at the return of an artist that has been in our gallery family since we opened our doors in 2012: José Herazo-Osorio! His work has evolved since the last time we had the privilege of showing his art and we’re truly moved by the passion and love of the human form he shows in his new paintings.

And, last, but, certainly not least, is Luz Valencia, a woman filled with laughter who creates art filled with color and light.

As is our tradition, we will celebrate the spirit of the season on Friday evening, December 9th beginning at 7 PM! We would love to have our friends and followers join us! If your busy holiday schedule prohibits you joining us, have no fear! The gallery will be open Friday evenings from 7 to 9 PM throughout the month of December.

Do pay us a visit! We’d love to see you again or meet you for the first time!

NIA NAKIS

“Sunset for Two” by Nia Nakis | acrylic on canvas | 16″ x 20″ framed | $750

Born in Athens, Greece, Eugenia “Nia” Nakis is an alumnus of the Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale. She worked as a fashion illustrator until 2001 when she had the opportunity to travel to Europe where she fell in love with the rugged Mediterranean landscape.

As a visual artist, Nia’s paintings reflect her love of nature. She finds beauty in the weathered rocks along the coast of her homeland and in the humble villages of her childhood in Greece. She says she fell in love with the lush tropics of Florida because there is so much nature around.

Nia calls her painting style “impressionistic” … she takes photos and makes sketches, but she also works from her memories and impressions. She loves the vibrant colors found in nature and the myriad combinations of those colors, and she takes delight in the antics of the birds like herons and seagulls.

We especially admire Nia’s philosophy about life and art … she says we have to keep growing and expressing ourselves in all areas of life and that sharing the journey with others is what makes it all worthwhile.

Call or text 954-661-4740 if you’re interested in visiting the gallery or purchasing Nia’s artwork. Shipping is available for an added fee..
