Lynn Morgan

Working in either pastels or oils, Lynn Morgan finds color to be her passion. Using photographs for inspiration, her work is more abstract and expressive than realistic.

 

 

 

Robert Moore

Painting by Robert Moore

 

 

Creative impressionistic pop-art artist Robert Moore presents a wide variety of images inspired by memories and the world around him. His unique and colorful acrylic paintings present views of the familiar with a realistic, portrait-like feel.

 

 

 

Sue Klahne

 

Painting by Sue Klahne

 

 

Sue Klahne enjoys the freedom of creating fluid abstract art with acrylics and other art mediums. Her paintings are largely inspired by the various blue hues of the ocean and the flow and power of the waves.

The COVID-19 pandemic has made this year difficult for many artists. But for longtime Armory Art Center instructor and artist Sam Perry, it was a colon cancer diagnosis and not the coronavirus that has put his health and livelihood in peril. 

 

 

“Lost in Toronto” by Cassandra Nordenbrock

 

 

Perry, who has been an instructor at the Armory for more than 20 years, lacks health insurance to cover some of the costs for his cancer treatment. “Sam is one of our longest-standing instructors, who has poured his heart and soul into the Armory,” said Executive Director Tom Pearson. “It’s so important to support each other in these times, and we want to do anything we can to support Sam.”

 

 

 

“Marta” by Evan Sahlman

 

 

 

During the event, if someone is interested in purchasing a work, they will make the donation directly to Sam’s GoFundMe page and show an event coordinator the proof of donation and they can then take the artwork. All artwork not sold that evening will still be available for purchase on Instagram.

 

 

The art community has responded to their fellow artist’s needs like a family – with creativity and generosity. They have donated their artworks and Sam will receive 100% of the proceeds.

“Due to the coronavirus pandemic, we moved the exhibition online to protect our artists, buyers, visitors and volunteers,” stated Art4Apes founder and director Lindsey Matheson, “While we will miss the thrill of showcasing these incredible works of art during Miami Art Week, we feel the benefit of being online this year will allow even more people to view the pieces and support the program.”

More than 400 works by almost 200 new and established artists from around the world will be available for viewing. There is no charge to view the four virtual galleries.

About the Center for Great Apes:

The Center for Great Apes is a 501(c)3 registered non-profit sanctuary for orangutans and chimpanzees. The Center for Great Apes’ mission is to provide a permanent sanctuary for orangutans and chimpanzees who have been rescued or retired from the entertainment industry, from research, or who are no longer wanted as pets. The Center provides care with dignity in a safe, healthy, and enriching environment for great apes in need of lifetime care. It is the only orangutan sanctuary in North America and one of the leading chimpanzee sanctuaries in the world. The Center receives no government funding and relies on memberships, donations, private grants and fundraising efforts to support this vital work.
