Exhibits at Hughes Gallery, Inc.|
2013 Season Upcoming Shows
January 8 (Tuesday): Val Sandell
Val Sandell opens our new season, with a remarkable one-woman show. "Meet the Artist" from 11am-5pm. Last year I asked Val to focus on a series of regatta paintings. She’d completed a couple of these works, which we hung and sold, over the past two seasons. They featured not only antique boats, but also people, whose gesture reminded me of Winslow Homer’s figures. Val’s regatta series is simply amazing. We’re happy she’s agreed to give our gallery an exclusive on this body of work. Really, if you love boats – and finely crafted paintings, which hearken back to the Homer days - don’t miss this show. It will be an unforgettable exhibit and you’ll be happy you came! I don’t know of any other contemporary artist painting this kind of work. These paintings are some of the very best we’ve had in our gallery, during our twelve year history.
January 24 (Thursday): Daniel Ambrose
"Meet the Artist" Thursday and Friday from noon- 5pm. Daniel Ambrose opens his second one-man show and it promises to be another spectacular exhibit of finely crafted works in egg tempera and oil. Daniel’s ability to capture the luminosity of the atmosphere, Florida’s amazing light, the haunting beauty of the mountains and minutia of detail he finds in everyday objects and structures will leave you wanting more. We’re so happy to be hosting an exhibit for this remarkable artist. Another 'not to be missed' exhibit.
February 4 & 5 (Monday & Tuesday): Del-Bourree Bach
Annual one-man show opens. "Meet the Artist" Monday and Tuesday, February 4-5th, 10a.m. to 5p.m. This is what I wrote, last season: “Del’s shows are exquisite. He’s the consummate professional and has gained a national and international reputation, winning innumerable awards and honors. His paintings are powerful, yet subtle, and he always gives Boca Grande his finest efforts, so mark down the dates and times and prepare to be amazed.” Double that. Last year’s show gave me goose bumps. This show is a must-see!
February 21 (Thursday): Bill Farnsworth
Bill Farnsworth will be at the gallery Thursday from 10am to 5pm, to meet and chat with you. Bill has won many national awards and much recognition for his thoughtfully painted works and he’s gained a wide circle of collectors. Bill has the talent to paint a vast range of subjects and his ability to express light, in two-dimensional work, is amazing. Bill’s shows are always worth the trip! One of six artists, represented by Hughes Gallery, Inc., to be included in the recent book, 100 Southern Artists, published by Schiffer Publishing.
February 25 (Monday): Invitational Group Show featuring Lois Griffel & Michael Budden
Invitational Show, featuring two of our finest painters: it’s all about the light – and the dark. Lois Griffel (former Director of the Cape Cod School of Art, renown teacher, writer and Impressionist painter) joins highly acclaimed painter, Michael Budden, to create an exhibition filled with light and the simple magic of darkness, thus, the title Night and Day. Lois is the "Queen" of genuine Impressionism and Michael is the "King" of New York City scenes, night scenes and works reminiscent of the former, great painters of The City. Personally, I can hardly wait for this show! I love both their works. These two fantastic artists are highly collected – and collectable!
March 4-5 (Monday and Tuesday): Loren DiBenedetto
Loren DiBenedetto will be in the gallery to meet and chat with you 11am-5pm, both days. We’re thrilled to host a second one-woman show for her. Since she was here, two years ago, Loren has won much recognition for her arresting paintings. She is also one of the six artists, represented by Hughes Gallery, Inc. to be included in the recent book, 100 Southern Artists, published by Schiffer Publishing. Mark your calendars and be sure to meet this great contemporary talent!
March 18-19 (Monday & Tuesday): Ed Hatch
Ed Hatch will be here, both days, 11am-5pm with his gorgeous, ethereal landscapes. Ed captures Florida moonlight like no other. His paintings done in the vein of the Hudson River School are something you don’t want to miss. Ed is yet another of the six artists, represented by our gallery and included in the Schiffer Publishing book, 100 Southern Artists. We’re so happy he’s returning to Florida and can’t wait to see what he’ll bring – it’s always a joy to host a show for Ed.
