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.

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.

DIRK EBERLE

Aviva D. Sasson

Israeli born, Aviva studied graphic design, but, what she really longed to do was paint. She started painting with watercolors while still living in Israel. When she arrived in Florida in 2005 and began studying with our gallery guru, Robert Gross, she discovered the world of oil painting on canvas. For Aviva, this medium was a ‘coming home.’ For us, as viewers of her art, we are particularly fond of her use of vibrant colors!

Living in the subtropical savanna of south Florida, Aviva is able to paint outdoors every week of the year, often with her teacher, Bob Gross, and his plein air group in western Broward County. Aviva’s paintings capture a vibrance that only the light of south Florida offers, and she does it in a bold and distinctive way! This is happy art! #artsaves
