Four Bay Area Artist Featured
at Sterling Art Studios and Gallery Dunedin.
The months’ exhibit at the Sterling Art Studio and Gallery features photography and graphite paintings from four different Bay area artists. The exhibit will be on display from September 1-30 with a special Artist’s Reception on Friday, September 14 from 5:30-8:00 p.m. in conjunction with Dunedin’s Second Friday. Here is an example of some of the artwork and a little about the artist work on display. First we have Tarin Mohajeri who says she finds it fascinating to capture vintage spaces and places in our modern world. The example of her work is used as the featured photo above.
Roland DesCombes sees the beauty in the natural order of things. He uses his “Paintings in Graphite” to transport the mind to a special time and place.
Ronald Beadenkopf says “Call it serendipity, call it magic. Moments strung as glittering jewels in the minds’ eye, captured in a way that reflects our experiences. With photography, I live for the moment. It is less about the predicted moments and more about the unpredictable. A few minutes every day with a camera feeds the part of me that needs to create and capture unique beauty.”
Stoney Lawrentz’ photograph, “Crow in Shadows” was taken near the Dunedin Marina. Stoney says “I enjoy finding hidden beauty in our everyday surroundings. Whether a little dark or even mundane, every object and place speaks to me.”
More about Stirling Art Studios & Gallery:
In 1997, a group of dedicated, local artists pooled their creative resources and started a studio collective. Calling themselves the Trailway Art Colony, they set up their working studios in a building on Douglas Street, just south of Dunedin’s Main Street business district. However, due to an unfortunate fire a few years later, the colony went through a transformation, changing its location as well as its name to the Imago Group. Since then, some of the original members have left the group, but new members have also come in, and now the collective is known as Stirling Art Studios & Gallery.
The present location is the entire second floor of the renovated Stirling Commons building at 730 Broadway in the heart of downtown Dunedin.
The collective consists of 10 working studios, headquarters for the Miniature Art Society of Florida, and Penny Lane – The Ultimate Beatles Collection.
We invite you to visit the gallery and our studios, open Monday through Friday 11am – 4pm, Saturdays 11am – 3pm, and to attend our monthly artist receptions held every 2nd Friday of the month from 5:30pm – 8:00pm, in conjunction with Dunedin’s “Night on the Town.”
