Writing Pictures. Drawing Words.

When The Rickie Report first met Juan Plaza, his loyal fans were crowded into his tent.  We could hardly get near enough to see his framed artwork.  Now that his work is being exhibited at Ortiz Smykla|Gallery Studio on Northwood in West Palm Beach, there is more room to not only appreciate his fine work, but a chance to really watch him as he works on March 29.  We promise you a phenomenal experience!  Read this article for more information about Juan Plaza and Dr. Wiggls!

It has only been one month since Ortiz-Smykla | Gallery-Studio opened in the Northwood neighborhood, but it has been a busy one!  The response has been overwhelming, making exhibiting artists and gallery owners very pleased.




Come to the monthly Promenade and stop by OSGS to hear and see the origins of Juan Plaza’s drawings portraying his character Dr.Wiggls’ Ph.D. through a combination of words and images.
