Check out my latest exhibit at the Central Brevard Library located at 308 Forrest Ave. in Cocoa.  I’ve just hung 12 new paintings as Central Brevard Art Association’s Featured Artist for November through December.   They are a collection of acrylic abstracts, that while small, are full of texture and color.

Heat of Passion

   “Heat of Passion” is an example of the compelling colors and textures that are fundamental to this new series.  It swirls with movement and fiery colors.   

  “Graffiti” exudes the playfulness of wild abandon.  Textures are incorporated into the image from the beginning of the painting process and profoundly affect all of the following applications.

 These paintings will be on display until January 6th.

Art Gallery of Viera

It was an incredible night at the gallery.  The artists were excited to show their work, the community welcomed us and it was great to see so many old friends and meet so many new ones.  Guests mingled with the artists and learned more about their work all the while enjoying the live music provided by Matthew Heister & Dan Jordan.  Visit us Monday-Saturday 10 am- 9 pm or Sunday Noon- 6 pm at The Avenue, Viera.

The grand opening of the new and improved Art Gallery of  Viera is coming up fast.  It’s this coming Friday, October 15th, from 6-9 pm at The Avenue, Viera.  Weeks of work have gone into the preparations.  Artwork is hung, the classroom is up and running and the sign is finally on the front of the building.  It has been a dream. a labor of love, and now finally, a reality.  Come meet the artists and listen to music all the while enjoying the beauty and creativity that surrounds you.  Hope to see you there!
