Syd Entel Galleries will organize an open day for the holidays
SAFETY HARBOR – For those looking for something extraordinary this holiday season, the Spectrum of Colors show will host an open house on Friday, December 3, from 10 am to 9 pm, at the Syd Entel and Susan Benjamin galleries Glass Etc., 247 Main St., security port.
“Spectrum of Colors” features works of art, glass and jewelry.
Artist Brett Varney is on the “Spectrum of Colors” show. Varney is inspired by abstract impressionists, such as Van Gogh, Klimt and Kandinsky. His images come from his travels and his intense color palette of oil pastels.
The exhibition will also include the new and exciting abstract work in resin by artist Andrea Dasha Reich. His latest series entitled “Sophrosyne” on canvas is a mixture of pigments and resin applied with a brush. Sophrosyne was a Greek goddess and is a philosophical term meaning “sane, sane in body”.
The Glass Gallery will feature Scott Hartley’s glass sculptures from Infinity Glass. Known for his intertwined pieces of glass, they “kiss” with flowing shapes and vivid colors.
The Labonté cat brings color and fantasy to the glass gallery with his lime green sausage dog, his pink elephant and his orange and blue cats.
If you are looking for colorful and shiny jewelry, check out Lily Barrack creations in sterling silver with ruby, coral and turquoise. Annemieke Broenink is a Dutch jewelry designer who uses recycled rubber to create light and fun jewelry in a spectrum of colors.
Extraordinary, almost microscopic attention to detail and classic contemporary designs make Alex Sepkus one of the world’s most original jewelry designers. He works 18k gold and platinum with the most incredible gemstones.
“Spectrum of Colors” will continue until Saturday January 8. The opening hours of the gallery are Tuesday to Friday, 9:30 am to 5 pm; and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
