About Edrian’s Sculptures:

 

Edrian loves making art that evokes thought and emotion. Exposure to different mediums through her life experience is clear in her work. The story telling qualities and character development of children’s books is evident in all of her figurative ceramic sculptures. The textures and finishes are very painterly, while shapes, patterns, or typeface treatments are evocative of her graphic design background.

 

 

[image] “Deceit” Ceramic Sculpture by Edrian Thomidis

 

 

 

 

Edrian Thomidis’ newest figurative ceramic sculptures are motivated by her interaction with life and the fluidity of its transitions. Human experiences and moments inspire the characters and the symbols that have meaning behind her figurative sculptures. Edrian’s work is inspired by situations in life that most people can relate to. The interpretation is left to the audience and is characterized by the familiar metaphors found in each piece.  They are each unique in their theme while capturing the overall concept of moving through life.

 

 

The individual subject matter in each piece invites us to think about life as a journey, adventure or a crossing. To pause and reflect about moments of faith, desire, loss or any other moment where emotions are involved.

*Art for a Cause: Opening Benefiting The Kids Cancer Foundation

 

 

Edrian Thomidis is a strong supporter of the Kids Cancer Foundation and has chosen to donate 10% of all proceeds from the opening reception to the Foundation.

Kids Cancer Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit charity, founded in 2001 whose mission is to provide hope and support to local children and families battling childhood cancer and/or blood disorders. We accomplish this by providing compassionate, easily accessible, supportive care services.

May 12- May 24 :

“Derby Days”

 

Gallery View

 

 

May 12- May 24 : “Derby Days”: This is our show with a “Horse” theme, re-titled. We have a number of equestrian enthusiasts who have been working in our studio, visiting our gallery and asking for works that involve horses. The show is being held earlier this year to reach the equestrian community before they leave the area for the summer.

 

 

May 26-June 7:

 “Birds of a Feather”

 

 

May 26-June 7 “Birds of a Feather”  This show is opened to photographers, painters, sculptors, potters, jewelers and all fine artists who love our feathered friends. Again, if this does not evoke “bird” in you, and you can interpret this in any other way, you works are welcome

Artwork by Jennifer Love Gironda

June 23-July5 “Hook Line and Sinker”We go from the air and tree tops, to the deep blue sea with this show. Nautical themes are what we anticipate, with lots and lots of fish and sea creatures. Once again, if this does not evoke “fish” in you, you can interpret this in any other way. 

 

 

July 7- July 19:

“Shoe Fetish/ Foot Fetish”

Shoe Fetish Gallery View

 

July 7- July 19: “Shoe Fetish/ Foot Fetish” This proved to be last year’s favorite show among our patrons who purchased more works than in any other show of the year . We like adding some levity to the hot summer by introducing the foot theme into our mix. Let’s get some pictures of these works into the gallery a few weeks early so we can get some more TV coverage on this. We want to bring the shoe loving crowds into the gallery to purchase your works. Last year some retired shoe manufacturers came into the gallery to buy.

 

August 4-August 16:

“Peanuts Rising”

 

 

Artwork by Bea Doone-Merena

August 4-August 16: “Peanuts Rising” formerly known as “The Male Form” We are repeating this successful special request exhibition. As in the past, this special show came from artists who felt slighted by the creations and shows that mostly feature the female form. They wanted equal time We welcome your interpretations.

 

 

August 18 to August 30

” Bread and Roses”

 

?????   Your Interpretation ?????

 

August 18 to August 30- ” Bread and Roses” in honor of Women’s Equality Day. The title, “Bread and Roses”, came from the 1912 Laurence Mill strike where women fought for their rights, asking for raises for bread, but for roses in their lives as well. This exhibition honors women, their contribution to the world and to art. Just being a woman in the arts (with or without a message) brings honor to the exhibit.

 

September 1-September 20th

 “Speak Their Names” Revisited: A Special Invitation Show

 


September 1-September 20th- “Speak Their Names” Revisited: A Special Invitation Show.

 

 

September 22-October 4:

Artwork by Pedro Gabriel Antonio

 

September 22-October 4: “Exotica/Erotica” formerly called, “The Naked Truth” We are always happy to repeat this show again and again, and think our new title will refresh our audience. This is a wide open topic that can be interpreted as broadly as you wish.

 

October 6- October 18:

“The Petting Zoo”

 

Artwork by Gin Blische

 

 

October 6 – October 18: “The Petting Zoo” formerly know at the Cat-O-Strophic Event: This wildly popular was all about cats, and now, all other animals. Cats of every shape, color and kind, and their brothers and sisters in the animal kingdom. We will again reach out to all of the animal rescue venues, pet shops and veterinarians as we publicize this event.

 

October 20-November 1

“Halloween, Freaky”

 

Gallery View With Artist Yury Lobo

 

 

October 20-November 1: “Halloween, Freaky” replaces the Annual “Day(s) of the Dead” Lake Worth is now doing “Day of the Dead,” so we thought we would encompass a wider range of the Halloween Scene this year. This event brought purchasing patrons into the gallery long after the exhibit was taken down.

 

November 2- November 15

Gallery View

 

Thursday, November 2- Wednesday, November 15: 2nd Annual Judaic Show. We plan this show to occur over a month before Hanukkah so that works can sell in time for holiday giving.
