The Artists Association of Jupiter proudly presents International Artist Brigitte Balbinot, A One Woman Show titled “On higher grounds”.  In the Artist’s words, the ultimate question remains… Is there something bigger than us and how does it translate into my work? During this exhibit, Brigitte Balbinot will introduce her newest work, large and medium size oil abstracts that will transport the viewer into another dimension.
The opening Reception will be held on Wednesday September 11, 2013 from 6:30 pm to 9:00 pm at A Unique Art Gallery. Show will run through October 4th.   Proceeds from the sale of artwork will benefit the Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League.

Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League is a limited-admission humane society and provides services to over 20,000 cats, dogs, puppies and kittens each year. Operating continuously since 1925, it has been positively impacting animal welfare and addressing overpopulation in Palm Beach County through a variety of services.


According to their website, “Our Vision is to create a community where 100% of the adoptable animals find loving homes and no animals will be euthanized because of pet overpopulation.”


Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League, Humane Society of the Palm Beaches, is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, and does not receive funding from city, county, state, or the federal government, or local organizations with similar names. We rely solely on the generosity of individuals, foundations and corporations to provide quality programs and services to the community. Your donations directly support the services and programs in place to help animals in need.



“Our mission is to provide shelter to lost, homeless and unwanted animals; to furnish medical and other services for the care of companion animals; to care for, protect, and find quality homes for homeless and neglected animals; to advocate animal welfare, community involvement and education to further the bond between people and animals, for the mutual benefit of both”.

Brigitte shares with us, “ Art cleanses our souls. It provoques our senses and thoughts.  We are living in difficult times surrounded by violence and ugliness. Our World is in desperate need of  added beauty, peace and harmony. Art is a conduit to the soul, with these collections I strive to inspire you… I want my art to make you think,  feel, and sometimes question… If I touch a nerve, provoque a reaction or stimulate your senses in any way,  I have succeeded.”


In a review by Carrie Turner, editor of Fine Art Views ( March, 2013), art critic Brian Sherwin is cited, “The compositional structure and use of raw texture in Balbinot’s paintings allow the imagination of the viewer to decipher meaning based on what he or she brings, psychologically speaking, to the viewing experience”.


“ I AM… therefore I PAINT! With an unquenched thirst for knowledge and understanding of the world around me, the canvas is my playground”… is one of the Artist’s famous statements. Each of her paintings may comprise up to 50 layers of oil paint using various mediums. Some pieces can take weeks and even months to be completed. She usually works on several canvases at the same time. She says, “I know my work is done when after several passes I can look at it and feel that it needs nothing more from me to be alive.”









Do not miss a chance to meet with the Artist and become acquainted with her unique vision. Also part of the event will be The Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League of West Palm Beach to whom 10% of all proceeds that night will be donated.
