2nd Anniversary Invitational Exhibition

Through Friday, July 6
The Box Gallery

The Box Gallery keeps setting the bar higher for Palm Beach art scene!

The Box Gallery celebrates its 2nd year anniversary on Saturday, June 9, 2018, with a wine reception from 7 to 9 p.m. and the presentation of the 2nd Year Anniversary Invitational Exhibition will feature six artists residing in Palm Beach County that are changing the national and international cultural landscape. 

The six artists invited to exhibit were carefully selected for their commitment to excellence and mastery in their respective genres and commitment to international conversations in the art world.

Giannina Copianno Dwin’s work is conceptual, the message is that we are not permanent permeates every last grain of her installations. Dwin says, “Life is fragile. As a mother and a woman these are the big issues to me.” Dwin lives and works in South Florida. She has been the recipient of grants and awards such as the prestigious South Florida Cultural Consortium Fellowship for Visual and Media Artists funded in part by the National Endowment for the Art, the Women in the Visual Arts Award.

StrosbergMandel The creative union of Serge Strosberg and David Mandel. The artists are from Palm Beach and New York respectively. The duo singularly and coupled are enigmatic personalities who’s work is equally sibylline infusing conversations of “fluidity” and embracing “otherness”. Giving new life to to many of our past icons while fusing the visual language of Flemish and German portraiture with fantasy jewelry and fabric design. Both artists present a very contemporary and unlikely mixture of works heavily inspired by their personal histories characterized by decadence and eccentricity of the NYC club era, particularly the many meme's of London club personality Leigh Bowery and Imperial Court drag adding an exuberant and human touch to the contemporary art scene. 

Yury Darashkevich is quite possibly one of the best living painters. Yury’s perspicacious observations of nature allows for his masterfully rendered landscapes. Darashkevich redefines our world awash with ethereal beauty allowing the viewer to contemplate the majestic scene with nothing less than reverent and rapt contemplation.

Daniel Weinstein’s work is expressionistic and raw, built on the foundation that painting is, at its most basic element, an ancient form of human communication with a subconscious language of its own. Many of his paintings seek to examine the emotional elements of facial recognition in another, vis a vis loss of self and ostracism. The artist through image creates a dialect that can be visually understood, interpreted and internalized both consciously and subconsciously by the viewer.

As an artist, Renda Writer stands firmly behind the central idea expressed in his artist statement, where he says, “My goal as an artist is to make my handwriting into visual art and to shed light on the general idea that handwriting can be seen as art, reminding viewers that the art is in what the words say, how they look, and how they’re written.”
