The Alliance for the Arts invites the public to its opening reception for a group exhibition Metamorphosis in the main gallery on July 5 from 5 to 7 p.m. The free event features the works of current Alliance members.
The Foulds Theatre Gallery features selected works of influential Latin American artist Ramon Chirinos. Light refreshments will be provided by Jayne Baker. These exhibits will be on display from July 5 – 27 at 10091 McGregor Blvd., Fort Myers.
This member show, themed Metamorphosis, is unjuried. Any current member was invited to submit one piece of work to be displayed for the month of July. All pieces are the artists’ interpretation of transformation and change. It can explore how people, nature, and society undergo metamorphosis over time. Artists could interpret this theme through depictions of personal evolution, environmental shifts, societal upheavals, or even the lifecycle of creatures undergoing metamorphosis, such as butterflies or frogs. It could evoke feelings of transition, adaptation, and renewal, encouraging viewers to reflect on the cyclical nature of transformation and the beauty found within the process of change.
Current members can download and fill out the prospectus to submit artwork though June 30. Artwork must be dropped off July 1, between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m.
Ramon Chirinos is known internationally for his expressive abstract paintings inspired by the colors and rhythm of life in his native South America. In his work, Chirinos blends native tradition and European influences in a cultural melange that is a key characteristic of Latin American art. Inspired by European artists such as the Spanish painter Joaquin Sorolla y Bastida and Catalan artist Joaquin Mir Trinxet, Chirinos helped define the Catalan art movement known as modernisme.
Chirinos’ paintings have a distinctive touch and style. From his early figurative paintings to his current abstract collection, they represent an explosion of colors, forms and lines.
