Triangle Art Show and Sale

artwork by Melissa Mercer Brown

Excitement is building in DeFuniak Springs for the first-ever “Pop-Up” Art Show and Sale, to be held one night only on October 14th, 2017. The public is invited to view the works of nine regional Florida artists who have been specifically chosen to represent the variety and exceptional talent available in this area.

The show and sale will be held in the former Triangle Chevrolet service building “in the alley” in downtown DeFuniak Springs. “We specifically chose this venue because it is reminiscent of an old industrial New York loft,” said artist and show organizer John Murphy. “We also have a few surprises planned for those who attend.”

“The use of this old building for an art show reflects the changing ways that we can help revitalize our downtown and pay tribute to the history of DeFuniak Springs,” said Bruce Naylor, also one of the artists also chosen to exhibit.

In addition to Murphy and Naylor, the participating artists from North Walton include Melanie Moore, Paulette Morrison, and Jean Kittelson. Melissa Mercer Brown, Francisco Adaro, and Russell Farris from South Walton will also be showing their work. Special
guest artist Leica Baldwin from Lady Lake, Florida will show her paintings.

The public is invited to attend this unique event from 6pm to 9pm on Saturday, October 14th. The artists will be available to talk about their work, and refreshments will be served. All artwork will be available for sale.

HOW TO FIND THE TRIANGLE ART SHOW & SALE: Downtown DeFuniak Springs in the alley between Nelson Ave (Hwy90) and Baldwin Ave, and between 7th and 8th Streets. Free parking is available on Baldwin Ave, and 7th & 8th Streets. Signs will direct you to the Art Show entrance in the alley.

30A Artist Kate Wilson to Have Show in NYC!

NEW YORK, NY – Chelsea’s Agora Gallery will feature the original work of Condesa, Artists of 30A member Kate Wilson in Plurality of Expression. The exhibition will open on January 21, 2017 and run through February 10, 2017 with an opening reception on Thursday, January 26 from 6-8 PM. Any art lover who enjoys thought-provoking artworks and meeting talented and interesting artists is encouraged to attend.

About the Artist 

Segmented or bleeding, but invariably multifaceted, Kate Wilson’s paintings in gouache, mixed media, and oil prioritize form. In Wilson’s more figurative works, planes of bodies and faces are reduced to vibrant patches of color. Meanwhile, each fluid abstract work layers and teases out ghostly forms, maintaining depth even at their haziest. Wilson strictly delineates colors in some areas, while allowing the pigments to seep outward into fuzzy rings in others.  The result is work that flows with motion and light where the carefully applied tones meet and contrast. Wilson finds inspiration in these dichotomies between control and entropy, sometimes taking a work to one extreme or the other and sometimes applying both techniques to the same canvas, achieving a focused balance. The forms in each painting, combined with the soft pinks, blues and neutrals that make up so much of Wilson’s work, create undeniably serene images. 

Originally from Birmingham, Alabama, Kate Wilson lives and works in Los Angeles. Travel, femininity, and spiritual curiosity inform Wilson’s work, so that each painting becomes emblematic of the artist’s personal experience. 

Exhibition Dates: January 21, 2017 – February 10, 2017
Reception: Thursday January 26, 2017, 6:00pm – 8:00pm
Gallery Hours: Tues-Sat 11-6
Gallery Location: 530 West 25th St, Chelsea, New York
