THE ARTISTS

David I. Muir, a native of Jamaica, is a fine art photographer living in South Florida. He has a special love for candid, cultural and lifestyle photography – signature components of his exhibits. He excels at capturing prix vrai cialis a whole story through his lens, which often emits strong emotion from viewers of his work.

Muir’s work has qualified for juried art contests as well as group and solo fine art exhibitions.

Muir’s love affair with photography began in the early 1980s when he would take his father’s camera to school and capture images of campus life in Kingston, Jamaica.

The transformation from hobby to profession propelled the growth of David’s portrait and event photography business, DAVIDiPhoto Inc. The commercial photography business is recognized as the premier event photography business of South Florida’s Caribbean- and African-American communities.

Muir co-founded and produces Caribe Arts Fest, an annual international art festival based in Broward County, Florida that includes events at the Museum of Art, in Fort Lauderdale, along with visual art exhibitions, performance art showcases and educational artist workshops.

Muir has been featured by numerous Jamaican and American media houses, including the Miami Herald, Sun-Sentinel, Hot105FM, NBC-6, ABC-10, FOX, CVM (Jamaican TV), TVJ (Jamaican TV), Jamaica Observer and the Jamaica Gleaner.

SEAN “IYA” HENRY

Sean “IYA” Henry – (water color, pastels, pen & ink, charcoal and mixed media)
Sean Henry, a 1987 graduate of the Jamaica School of Art and Founder and Design Director of Iya Limited, one of Jamaica’s leading screen printing and graphic houses is an artist to his core. Inspired by the scenes of life and nature around him, Sean sketches and paints the scenes. Sean explains that his work is therapeutic and that it provides him peace of mind.

Sean’s work is derived from his drawing, painting, photography and the combinations of these works, which are either water-colour, pastel, pen & ink, charcoal, and/or mixed media.  Lovers of beauty and art will get the opportunity to view the work of this talented artist as he stages his first showing in America.

Philip Michael Curtis – Painter (acrylics and pastel)
An artistic protégé, Phillip Michael Curtis; foray into the art world began at the tender age of seven. His first effort, Last Supper, toured his native Jamaica, creating a buzz about the creative future of the pint-sized painter.

Curtis’ painterly style speaks to viewers lyrically. His work pops in vibrant colors and rich tones in his preferred media – oils, acrylics, and pastels. His visible brush strokes are carefully controlled, yet can be characterized as freely impressionistic.

The artist’s music series stirs the soul as he brings in focus the sounds, movement, and smokey ambiance of the nighttime jazz scene. Not only does Curtis put viewers in the audience, his tasteful nudes, portraits, caricatures, and genre paintings of his island home brings together his varied design styles.

Migrating to the United States as a teenager, Curtis studied at New York’s FIT (Fashion Institute of Technology) and the Art Student League. He worked as a fashion and general illustrator and eventually moved to Miami where he worked as a courtroom artist. It was this skill that got him noticed – one of his paintings was featured in the film, Out of Timefeaturing Denzel Washington.

 was born in Jamaica. He earned the NDD from St. Martin’s School of Art in London, England and an MFA from Maryland Institute College or Art, USA. He has been used extensively as Consultant for Art and Craft by UNESCO and OAS in the Caribbean and represented Jamaica at several conferences and State Visits, and delivered many papers at International Meetings and Universities.

A prolific artist, he has had one man exhibitions in England, USA and Jamaica as well as exhibited in many group shows in Jamaica, England, USA, Canada, Europe, Latin America, Japan, Hong Kong, the Caribbean, Mexico, Republic of Dominica, Cuba and Botswana.

Craig uses the jeweled colors of the Caribbean’s flora, Fauna and the undulating shapes of the landscape for inspiration for many of his paintings as well as symbols of the original peoples of the New World, Africa and the Orient. His work is a rich tapestry in an Abstract Symbolism style full of luxurious textured surfaces, symbols with vibrant color. His work gives birth to new internal languages of heart, mind and soul.

Don Parchment – Photographer.
Don’s first camera was a Kodak Baby Brownie, he owned whilst attending a boarding school in the St. Elizabeth hills of Jamaica. Students were encouraged to develop their hobbies, and his has grown into a lifelong passion.

In Jamaica he developed that passion into a professional career as a fashion photographer. In the late 1980’s, he relocated to New York where he expanded into product and catalog photography. Currently residing in Florida his photography interests have broadened to include life style, travel, corporate and social events. He particularly enjoys covering concerts and festivals.

Having spent many years honing his photography skills, his trademark became his uncanny ability to make people emote.

As a photographer his constant quest for beauty in people and places is what motivates him to create images that ignite a special connection between himself and the viewer. The pursuit of capturing these images in the art of photography is his unending passion.

Iva McDaniels is a multidisciplinary artist. She holds degrees in Radio & Television Broadcasting, Communications, and Interdisciplinary Arts Education. Further, she is the author of the poetry book MOIST, a playwright, freelance spiritual and entertainment writer, and filmmaker. She currently resides in the rtist community of 1310 Gallery, Sailboat Bend Artist Lofts.

Presented by Sylvain Denis + 1310 Gallery:

The Nature of Things

Art exhibit opening at 1310 Gallery + Open studios during #‎flaglerartwalk‬ with FREE trolley service

For further information please contact this month’s curator:  954-541-4646 oremail

The Nature of Things (by Sylvain Denis)…
“It’s make me think about how things are, also there is nature element in my images and Israel sculptures.  It is also about the way things are or can be represented, Niko’s drawing are exaggerated version of people shape and anatomy and I feel like it can be a true reality of their look. Barry painting have a deeper meaning about people innerself and sole, good or bad it is nature of this world.

This event will have 4 artist:

  • Stone sculptures by Israel Isi Ghelman
  • Photography, by me Sylvain Denis
  • Drawings by NikoYulis
  • Paintings by Barry Gross

About The Curator:

Sylvain Denis is a resident photographer and curator born and raised in Montreal, Canada. Currently residing in Fort Lauderdale where he works as a commercial freelance https://www.acheterviagrafr24.com/achat-viagra/ photographer. Sylvain started his interest in photography at a young age influenced by his own experience as a young model for a fitness publication based in New York City. Since 1994 Sylvain has captured the American Southwest landscape; this collection will be showcased during the exhibition here in 1310 Gallery.

This collection spans a 20-year career sampling his time across the United States from Antelope Canyon, a sandstone canyon carved from flash floods to Monument Valley on the edge of Utah. The American Landscape is constantly basked in hues and waves of light, which change every few minutes, making it probably one of the most challenging places to photograph.

Sylvain’s camera of choice is a medium format film camera, known for their larger size negatives that are transferred into digital files through the process of Drum scanning, which give the highest image resolution possible. Those images are then printed on to metallic paper compressed between polished plexi-glass for their superior glossy and finished look.

Bio of Israel Ghelman:

I studied sculpture, ceramic and drawing in Caracas, Venezuela. In Florida, clay in the Fire and Mud Studio, sculpture in Broward College and work as a Sculpture Lab Assistant.  Participated in group shows in Broward and Palm Beach.  Took part in the Mosan art symposium in South Korea, where I carved a monumental piece in granite for the Museum.
At this moment in my life I decided to sculpt in stone. I take pleasure in the physical contact with the rocks, could be because I love the mountains and life outdoors or for some other reason but they attract me… I think that, in some way, they are sculptures in their natural state… They are part of nature and I analyze their origin, where they “grow” and to which “family” they belong. I am doing it for the last six years, and love to work on them, trying to bring out what they would like to express.

I like to incorporate details and organic forms, but it is essentially abstract art. Passionate about the three-dimensionality of sculpture, in my newest pieces I introduced the rotation on a pin to have a 360 degrees view.  Showing off my sculpture, I intend to provoke intellectual and emotional enjoyment in the viewer of my work.

Bio of Barry Gross:
Artist Barry Gross is a figurative/surreal realistic painter . He primarily works in oils on Belgium linen and delves into mixed media as an under painting and works the painting up with oil. Barry also does drawings using graphite/charcoal and oil sticks on hand tinted Asian rice papers. Barry is in the collections of Malcolm Forbes of Forbes Magazine, Elton John,
Coca Cola.

Amy Gross uses everyday materials such as yarn, thread, beads and wire to create objects that mimic the natural world but remain wholly artificial. Her fiber and mixed media sculptures, nicknamed biotopes, reflect on the inevitability of change, attempting to counter inevitable vulnerability by stopping time. Her life forms are imitations of life. They, simply, do not die. Gross earned her BFA at The Cooper Union in New York City and worked as a surface designer, creating textiles, toys, and jewelry before before turning full time to fiber art. She lives and works in South Florida.

Posted on 16 October 2013 by Lisa Rockford

Jacques de Beaufort is an artist and filmmaker living in Lake Worth, Florida where he is an Associate Professor of Visual Art at Palm Beach State College. Over the last decade, since receiving his MFA from the California Institute of the Arts, de Beaufort has worked steadily towards the construction of a unique and visionary surrealist cosmology expressed through his paintings created while working “in the contemporary space, but to always be reaching for a realm that exists outside of now but simultaneous with both the past and present”. De Beaufort has exhibited extensively in South Florida, New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, and London and has received substantial critical support for his work including his first feature length film Sanctum and Sacrum, music videos and the founding of his project space UNIT1 Exhibitions in Lake Worth, FL.
