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!

And, the winner is …

Saturday, September 30 is more than the last day of the month. It’s also the day we will announce the winners of the Sixth Annual Island City Juried Art Exhibition and present them with ribbons and cash awards!

the-mask-by-ray-arcePlease join us at 7 PM Saturday evening at Art Gallery 21 as we unveil this year’s spectacular showcase of work created by 30 of our finest local artists. Local African American artist and teacher George Gadson served as our jurist, selecting 45 wonderful examples among the entries we received to grace the walls of our little art gallery. The mediums are diverse; from oils, watercolors, acrylic and pastels to photography and mixed media. Large and small, we have it all. And, the majority of them are for sale!

We will celebrate with music by Cindy Curtis & Company, and refreshments provided by Nick & Shawn’s Courtyard Cafe. Come meet the artists. You’ll make new friends and you may run into old ones. After all, we’re your neighborhood art gallery. We mean it when we say we’d love to see you again or meet you for the first time!

Hot town, summer in the city …

Today is the First Day of Summer and we’d love it if you would join us THIS Saturday evening, June 24th, at 7 PM when we will unveil our latest exhibition of art, showcasing the works of  five very talented local artists: Darlene Fenster, Carol Finlayson, Barbara Pardon, Heidi Reiter and Henry Rhommerdahl.

Our art socials are legendary for the friendships and refreshments we offer and these neighborhood gatherings provide an opportunity for visitors to meet the artists and talk about art. We are especially excited because one of our artists is über talented and has promised to perform just for us!!! You don’t want to miss this!

If you are unable to join us this week, we hope you will visit any Saturday through July 15th to see this lovely art exhibition. We would love to see you again or meet you for the first time!

EDITOR’S NOTE: Last weekend’s 18th Annual Gay Pride Festival in Wilton Manors was a huge success! Well over 10,000 people came out to see the parade and share in the celebration of #peace, #love and #equalrightsforall! Thank you to our fans and followers for understanding why we couldn’t hold our art opening as originally scheduled.
