“Elements, Earth, Water, Air & Fire” - A Group Exhibition ~ Opening Reception September 27, 2013

Event Date/Time

Sep 27, 2013 to Oct 23, 2013

Description

“Elements, Earth, Water, Air & Fire” - A Group Exhibition ~ Opening Reception September 27, 2013

 

 Troy Fine Art proudly presents ”Elements”, earth, water, air & fire” observing how four nationally known gallery artists use these classical elements through their perspective, style, materials and individual techniques.

Each of these renown artists’s have a specific point of view and unique approach. Their work harmonizes beautifully in contemporary and classic environments. said Troy Amuso, Founder, Troy Fine Art Services. 

Works will be exhibited by Christopher Schulz, Richard Bruce, Robert J. Ichter and Greg Gustafson. The collection will be on display at the Troy Fine Art Gallery, 3310 Post Road, Southport with an opening reception on  September 27, 2013 from 6 to 8 pm. Show runs through  October 23rd. 

Earth: Christopher Schulz's sculpture  invites a physical participation, art interacting in a three dimensional arena.   His sculptural works  are interpretive to real world stimuli, a physical embodiment to themes inclusive to our place in the world, depicting everyday life and man’s relationship with forces unknown.

Water: Richard Bruce's paintings are very much about the sky, land and water, yet he does not create literal depictions of specific places. Bruce is interested in capturing the experience  of the landscape, of being in nature and the inherent spirituality found there. In his work he conveys a subtle message for preservation and restoration of our environment.

Air: Greg Gustafson paints from nature as he contrasts muted color with areas of intense brightness along with wide brush strokes to render clouds.  He situates them over sweeping expanses of land and water with dramatically low horizons. Greg's work is more an expression of mood rather than a specific time or place.

Fire:  R. John 'Bob' Ichter is known for brilliantly colored stylized abstract oils and acrylics on canvas.  Ichter’s signature style has been developed over a thirty-year career in painting. In all of his work, intense competing colors co-exist harmoniously and create a sense of a lush, vibrant, and idyllic natural world.

Denise DiGrigoli and Troy Amuso , gallery owners, have over thirty years of experience in the fine art, design and handling all levels of art. The niche business was developed fifteen years ago by making “house calls,” bringing fine art, framing design, and installation services into client’s homes. “With our busy lifestyles, our services are designed to simplify the process of completing the beauty of our clients’ homes and offices.” , said Amuso. "We want you to love what you see each and every day because it creates a better day".

Troy Fine Art offers complete fine art services:  In-home and office art consultations, contemporary fine art, conservation picture framing, art installations, art restoration. Serving both the residential  and business communities.  Hours: In gallery or your home and office:  Monday - Friday 9:30 am to 5:00pm.  Thursday ‘til 8pm. Saturdays and evenings by appointment. All work done on premises by trained professionals who are experienced in handling all types of art.    

Recently  awarded  the  designation as a Chubb  Insurance  Master Network Provider.
