This time of year stirs up memories, gives rise to feelings of nostalgia and, hopefully, joy. Great works of art awaken many of the same emotions. Each work at Surovek Gallery has been carefully chosen because of its beauty, its history and the sensation it evokes.
We would like to showcase some of the fine works of art in our gallery that have special meaning for us and would make wonderful, and special, gifts for the holidays.
Stephen Scott Young – The Pantry
Stephen Scott Young is such a talented watercolorist, that his works have been compared to those of Winslow Homer. Young works from his studio in Jupiter, Florida and we have been fortunate to have established a long relationship with him. Although best known for his paintings of daily life of children in the Bahamas, Young paints all of his subjects with an enormous amount of empathy.
The Pantry is one of our favorite works. It is masterfully rendered, with extraordinary detail and subtle colors that few artists have been able to achieve with watercolor.
Guy Wiggins – Snowstorm in Midtown Manhattan
The romance of city sidewalks, busy sidewalks are what many of us envision during the holiday season. Guy Wiggins captured the feeling of winter in New York from his studio in Washington Square Park. One of America’s finest Impressionist painters, Wiggins’ works are included in the permanent collection of the Met and other fine museums around the world.
Wolf Kahn – Pines Against the Evening Sky
Wolf Kahn’s Vermont landscapes are in the Smithsonian, the Met and other major museums. He divides his time between New York and Vermont. Pines Against an Evening Sky is just one of the landscapes of Wolf Kahn available at the Surovek Gallery.
Montoya & Ortiz – Hazelnuts
Luis Montoya and Leslie Ortiz have been collaborating in their South Florida foundry since 1994. Their works are skillfully done, filled with color, relish and humor. Who wouldn’t want a tray of perfectly crafted Hazelnuts for the holidays?
William Glackens – Fruit on Plate with Knife
An American master whose life and work had a profound influence on American art, William Glackens created paintings that are both warm and serene. His paintings are in the permanent collection of the Whitney and other major museums. The largest collection of Glackens’ work can be found at the Museum of Art in Fort Lauderdale, which has dedicated an entire wing of the museum to his work.
Julio Larraz – Gourds and Pomegranates
Julio Larraz was born in Havana, traveled the world, and now lives and works in Miami. His paintings have a soft, tranquil, and sometimes, a surreal quality about them.
