Watching art being made can be very inspiring. It allows the viewer to see the process in action instead of just the finished product. Such an opportunity begins on Friday, July 15th.   Eleven art installations will be in-process through the weekend culminating in an exhibition that will remain in place until the first week of September.  The public can engage the artists about their projects, work methods and messages.  There will be an interesting mix between artists and visitors which is a great way to have art understood.  Dialogue about a conceptual work while it is being made actually becomes part of the work.  We will be documenting and posting on our website and Facebook daily progress

Through the Collector’s Eyes
On Exhibit until  July 10, 2011

 

Five collectors who call Florida home share art from their  collections in “Through the Collector’s Eyes”, currently on exhibit through July 10, 2011. The selected art from the collections of Charlotte Everbach, Ed and Jean Harris, Margery Pabst, Linda  Pinto, and Judy Thompson gives insight, not so much into the qualities of what defines “fine art”, but more into what type of art stirs their soul, brings them joy, and subsequently became a part of their daily living environments.

 

This show is packed with variety and includes paintings, mixed media, graphite drawing, photography, encaustic and sculpture out of wood, clay, glass and other objects. In addition to the pieces from the collections the artists have been invited to exhibit new works for the public’s enjoyment and consideration.
