VERO BEACH — Gallery 14’s WAYS OF SEEING will showcase new assemblages by Joan Earnhart and present for the first time in America the mixed media abstracts of renowned Bolivian artist Carmen del Carpio.
Joan Earnhart’s dramatic wooden constructions, filled with antiques and curiosities, draw us in with powerful narrative stories and meaningful symbolism.
Ms. Earnhart, a multiple award winner at Vero Beach Museum of Art’s Art by the Sea, is represented year round by Gallery 14. However, this exhibit provides a rare opportunity to see a large body of her work displayed at one time.
Carmen del Carpio’s uniquely hued abstract, mixed media paintings juxtapose reality with imagination. A highly respected artist in Bolivia, Ms. del Carpio will be flying in for the occasion and attending the reception.
The exhibit will run from Feb. 26 – March 30. A reception will be held on Friday, March 1, from 5–8 p.m. in conjunction with the First Friday Gallery Stroll.
The exhibit will also feature work by Gallery 14 artist partners: Edgardo Abello, Lila Blakeslee, Cheri Cruden, Barbara du Pont, Mary Ann Hall, Virginia Knapp, Barbara Landry, Deborah Morrell Polackwich, and Dorothy Napp Schindel.
Also showing are the gallery’s represented artists: Bryan Beck, glass sculpture; Emily Heinzel, colored pencil on wood; Carol Staub, mixed media; Francis Mesaros, sculpted oil; and Viola Pace Knudsen, fine art baskets.
Gallery 14 is located at 1911 14th Ave. in the historic Downtown Arts District of Vero Beach.
