Two exhibitions in Naples -- Amy Art gallery & studio, and John R. Wood on Broad Ave.
All summer, my brush expressed my visions of flowers in motion. Upclose, the shapes look like blobs of energy and when you stand back, you see blossoms. I ended up bringing 20 of the paintings back to Naples.
Hanging the paintings in the Naples gallery has been a blast — we were able to harmonize very different artwork I’ve created over the past two years. And then two days later, we installed 15 more new and recent paintings at the beautiful John R. Wood building on Broad Avenue in Old Naples. The legendary real estate firm holds an annual “welcome back” party for all their agents, and this year one of the themes is “meet the artist,” referring to me and the exhibition.
Sadly, John R. Wood recently passed and I send all my condolences to the family and admiration for the legacy he leaves the community.
On Friday, Oct. 22, I am hosting a “Homecoming” open house at my gallery in the Naples Design District as a festive pre-launch of the season. In addition to my new art installation, we’ll have serenades from tenor Eric P. Bohus, and appetizers, wine and prosecco.
I hope you’ll drop in! Please let us know via this RSVP link. https://amyarthomecomingoct22.eventbrite.com
And if you’re in the neighborhood of John R. Wood on Broad Avenue, stop in for the welcoming staff as well as my art on the walls.
