Gallery 14 – March 2024 featuring Melissa Mastrangelo and Horacio Lertora

A Summer Breeze: Paintings by Melissa & Horacio 

            We welcome the month of March with the return of the ever popular husband and wife team Melissa Mastrangelo and Horacio Lertora.  The duo, who have continually brought smiles to the faces of fans and collectors from near and far, like to say that they are spouses sharing the same canvas in life and art.  This partnership has resulted in a successful collaboration for 18 years.  In their current body of work, A Summer Breeze: Paintings by Melissa and Horacio, Melissa uses acrylic paint and original mid-century ephemera, in collaboration with Horacio’s hand cut stencils and wooden tiles to create nostalgic and playful works of art.  Each piece is created on an assemblage of 1/4” wooden tiles and panels.  Most of the pieces in this collection are meant to be hung singularly or in combination with others to create a larger panoramic statement.

      This bright and colorful show, filled with retro imagery, will run from March 1 – 29.  There will be a reception to meet the artists on Friday March 1 from 5 – 8pm, as part of the First Friday Gallery Stroll.

      Always featured throughout the year are Gallery 14 artist-owners:  Lila Blakeslee, Barbara du Pont, Barbara Landry, Jessica Leto, Mary Ann Hall, Deborah Morrell Polackwich, Dorothy Napp Schindel and Evan Schwarze, as well as represented artists Walford Campbell, Jim Cohoe, Melanie Denison, Joan Earnhart, Terry Green, Viola Pace Knudsen, Mia Lindberg, Francis Mesaros, Michael Robinson, Carol Staub and Jo Zaza.  Gallery 14 is located at 1911 14th Avenue in the Downtown, Historic Arts District of Vero Beach.  Open hours are Tuesday through Friday, 10 – 5 and Saturday 10 – 4.  Closed Sunday and Monday OR open by appointment.
