Heritage Art Galleries was founded in 1982 by Sam Vitro, a master art restorer from Italy. Services quickly expanded from custom framing and art restoration to acting as a national wholesale art and framing source for design professionals and the general public alike.

Gallery Interior

 

Two years ago, Sam’s family moved to Fort Lauderdale from Montreal to join his gallery and framing business. Having Claudio, Linda and Ian working full-time in the business for a couple of years prior to retirement would make the transition easier for Sam, who had been framing and restoring fine art for more than three decades. But unfortunately, Sam passed away unexpectedly and the family’s plans were accelerated.

“We were all devastated at his passing, of course,” said Claudio, “but since Sam had always envisioned passing on the business to my children as a legacy we have just continued it in his honor.” Claudio continues, “I see immense growth potential in Heritage. I still have a lot of hard work ahead of me and I am confident I will grow this business and create the legacy that Sam wanted.”

The Family:

 

 

 

Claudio Tomassone, Sam’s brother-in-law for 44 years, is a real estate broker and investor from Montreal, Canada. Through the years when he would visit his sister and Sam at their Hollywood home, he said he would spend every spare moment at the gallery. “I was always fascinated by art appraisal and restoration,” said Claudio. “Sam did amazing work and over the years I acquired a lot of knowledge about the business from art evaluation, restoration and museum quality framing.”

Joining Claudio in the business is his daughter, Linda Tomassone. The Montreal native has been involved in the artistic world her entire life; first as an actress, then in film production and screenwriting.

“I have a great deal of admiration for artists and their creative process since I have experienced these things myself,” Linda said. “I see each painting as a piece of the artist’s soul and story. When you connect to the essence of a painting the feeling is almost magical. I love experiencing that same feeling in discovering new artists and being part of the process when a customer connects to a painting themselves.” Linda handles the marketing and event planning for Heritage while also running her own business as a social media marketer.

In 2017, Linda married San Diego native Ian Jerrell. Ian has a background in the fashion industry and an eye for artistic composition, color selection and design. He worked as Sam’s apprentice to learn the art of custom framing for the past two years.

Expansion and Services:

In addition to working with Sam and learning the nuances of the business, the family spent the past year reconfiguring the gallery and workspace.

Heritage has been newly redesigned and now includes a beautiful art gallery/showroom. “We have created an inviting space here to hold art events, lectures, openings and exhibits,” said Claudio.

Ian, who is now the main custom framer at Heritage Art Galleries, said they offer a wide variety of services including custom and museum quality framing.  “We have affordable prices on framing, offer very high-end gallery services, stretch canvas, and offer the stretching and blocking of needlepoint. We also do custom mirrors,” he said.

The Art:

One of the challenges the family faced at the beginning of their journey was that through the years, Sam art collection grew into the thousands of artworks from the early 19th century till today.

“No formal inventory existed for this artwork,” said Ian, “We had to get them ready for sale and it took months to go through them.” Today, artists such as Tarkay, Erte and David Schluss, to name a few, are for sale and can be seen online on Heritage’s website and in the gallery, according to Ian.

Heritage has a big marketing effort underway according to Linda. “ We now have an Internet presence and following, and are working on building an online art shop.”

What kind of art does Heritage represent?

“We work mainly with contemporary art,” said Ian. ”Inventory includes oil, acrylic and mixed media originals and prints. When we look for new artists, we of course, look for something that speaks to us, but mostly originality.”

“Day After Mardi Gras” by Lois Perdue

Thinking Ahead:

We have been making our way throughout the South Florida arts community meeting artists, others involved in the arts, and checking out events to make sure we are always current with what’s happening.”

“The art market in South Florida seems to be booming,” said Claudio. “Everywhere you look there seems to be an art fair or exhibit. These are very exciting times for the art world. We are also looking at the Canadian market. It is full of amazing untapped talent and we are looking for originality, something new and fresh that the art world has not seen yet.”

Claudio continues to promote the business and use the sales skills he has acquired over the years in real estate to acquire new clientele for Heritage Galleries. Future plans call to open a second location or move to a larger location as soon as they outgrow the current space.

Claudio, Ian and Linda all agree that “Uncle Sam” is with them in spirit! “We feel his energy in everything we do,” said Claudio.

Linda added that it is a bonus to be able to work with her father and husband. “What an amazing experience this is,” she said. “I feel blessed. We are a great team. With our individual strengths we are an unstoppable force!”

Internationally Artist, “Murf”, Celebrates 30 Years With Howard Alan Events At Downtown Delray Beach Thanksgiving Art Weekend

Marvin “Murf” Murphy is celebrating 30 consecutive years as a participating artist in Howard Alan Events (HAE). Starting with Boca Fest in 1988, the Weston resident was one of a handful of artists outside the Town Center Mall. As the HAE events grew, so did Murf’s reputation and skill. Eventually, he would quit his day job to become a full-time artist while raising four artists of his own. This month, Murf’s daughter Tyler will follow in her father’s footsteps and launch her artistic career during the 18th Annual Downtown Delray Beach Thanksgiving Art Festival on November 25 – 26.  The Rickie Report shares the details and some sneak peeks.

 

 

 

18th Annual

Downtown Delray Beach Thanksgiving Weekend Art Festival

Saturday, November 25  &  Sunday, November 26

10 -5  Both Days

Free Admission

 

Navigation address:   201 E Atlantic Avenue in Delray Beach, FL

 

 

 

“Fire and Ice” acrylic palette knife and brush painting by Murf

 

 

 

Back in 1988, Murf was a professional window-tint technician, working on both vehicles and commercial buildings. Naturally artistic, he began adding differing tint hues, cut into nautical shapes over the darker or lighter base tints. His tint “scenes” became a hit, and he used this technique to create art deco framed panels, which he would sell on occasion during indoor mall art shows. During the Erte era, Murf’s work quickly became highly sought, with entire yachts festooned with the young tinter’s work. When Howard Alan began producing art shows in South Florida, Murf was one of his first artists. Las Olas Art Fair, Downtown Delray Beach Festival of the Arts – Murf was a mainstay, and his art evolved along with the shows themselves.

 

Murf Murphy’s Art At A Howard Alan Art Festival

 

 

 

Howard Alan took his art festival shows on the road during the hot summer months, touring Chicago, Ohio, Colorado and others, and Murf and his wife Rhonda toured with him. By 1990, Murf’s work evolved to 3-D creations and he was able to devote himself to his art full-time. That same year he and Rhonda had their first daughter, Alanna. Brittany was born two years later, followed by daughter Tyler in 1995 and Kelsi in 1997. Throughout that time, he and his four daughters were on the road every summer, touring with HAE from one show to the next. The Festivals gave the Murphy family the chance to see the country, meet hundreds of other artists and spend quality time together.

 

The Artistic and Creative Murphy Family

 

 

Murf’s artistic success grew over the decades and many of his designs have been added to the collections of noted musicians and public figures including Richard Elliot, Dav Koz and President Clinton. Murf was invited in 2006 to the U.N. Ambassadors Ball for a special farewell celebration in honor of then U.N. Secretary-General and Nobel Peace Prize winner Kofi Annan. Murf’s original painting “In a Perfect World” was the feature piece for the event. He also presented the new U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon with his “Earth Island” lithograph in 2010, and was thanked by Vice President Al Gore for Murf’s commitment to environmental preservation.

 

 

 

Artwork by Murf Murphy

 

All of Murf’s four daughters grew up to be talented artists themselves, with different skills in varying mediums. Daughter, Tyler, a gifted photographer and recent UF journalism school graduate, will follow in her father’s footsteps with a booth of her own during the 18th Annual Downtown Delray Beach Thanksgiving Art Festival. While many practice art as a hobby during non-working hours, Murf credits festivals like Howard Alan’s for giving him a lifelong career that not only supported his family, but also nurtured a love and appreciation for the artist life in the next generation.

“City of Roses” by Tyler Murphy

 

See Murf and his daughter Tyler during the 18th Annual Downtown Delray Beach Thanksgiving Art Festival November 25 – 26 from 10 am to 5 pm both days. Murf will also be participating in the 30th Anniversary Las Olas Art Fair January 6 – 7, 2018.
