ART SHOW Opening: Mad Hatter's Dream

October 18, 2019

Come join us at the Origami Air Art Studio for The Mad Hatter's Dream! This whimsically demented art show is inspired by the eccentric characters from the Lewis Carrol novel, “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland”. We are featuring award winning artists, Vicki Chelf and Sandra Lefever. This art show will be filled with fantastic figurative paintings, magical art designs, and origami top hats that integrate the darkness and playfulness of the Mad Hatter's dream.

The exhibition will be open for two weeks after the opening reception for all of our friends who couldn't make it. We look forward to seeing you down the rabbit hole!

September 27, 2019

​The Body Spectrum is a collaborative fine art experience between local Sarasota artists Dana Laag and Mary Sencabaugh. Combining Laag's background in psychology and Sencabaugh's education in physics, the two artists use color and geometry to explore patterns in the natural world and the female form.

 

Join us for the opening reception on Friday, September 27th from 6-9. The show will run until closing on October 6th.

Origami Air Art Studio

Haven't gotten the chance to see the exhibition yet? Be sure to catch the last few days of the exhibition!

Origami Air Art Gallery is pleased to announce its inaugural exhibition, 12 X 12 Observed, with exhibiting artists Lucy Barber and Lori Loveberry George. Barber and George are collaborating in their first two-person painting exhibition. The Gallery is located on Patterson Drive one block east of Tamiami Trail and one block north of Ringling College. 

All works in the show are 12” x 12” in size and are perceptual works based on observation. 

Barber’s series of works includes “farm to easel,” vegetables and fruits from Sarasota’s farmers market and local sources. Barber says of her painting process, “The sensation of seeing and experiencing the moment whether embraced by objects or things, provides revelations that travel to the canvas. It’s like going from black and white to color in a palette of transformation – all history comes to life here.”

George’s paintings and mixed media are based on a summer 2017 solo road trip from Sarasota to Montana. George comments, “my work maps intimate observations and reflections of identity, place, spaces and objects: an exploration of…personification of the human experience, and overcoming the fear of uncertainty...” 

Origami Air Art Studio aspires to create an enduring passion for fine arts in the Sarasota/Bradenton community, bringing global attractions, artists and venues to their location. The gallery and studio is conveniently located, and is very close to Ringling College and the Ringling Museum of Art.
