Artists Shine At Thursday Night Live! At Beaux Arts Gallery In Winthrop Town Center

Visitors and artists mingle at Beaux Arts Gallery’s Thursday Night Live!, which are held on the last Thursday of each month. Beaux Arts Gallery is located in the Winthrop Town Center in Riverview.

Beaux Arts Gallery, located at 11252 Winthrop Main St. in Riverview, hosts monthly “Thursday Night Live!” events. According to Winthrop Town artist Bryant Martinez, “On the last Thursday of every month, we showcase wonderful art and artists in the fabulous Beaux Arts Gallery.”

Visiting artists from all over are invited to exhibit their work at the gallery. The “Thursday Night Live!” event is an opportunity for the artists to mix and mingle with other artists and art lovers.

Adrienne Herbert, Abigail Markov and Prochet Duchard are the talented and delightful artists whose work is on display during the month of May.

Herbert paints in the Old Master’s technique, which uses a common technique of underpainting. Here, the artist is able to outline and set the tone for the painting. Glazing is then applied, which allows the painter to build on the paint colors and create special effects.

Markov is best described as an experimental painter because she literally creates her own paint from common sources such as wax, resin and pigment.

Duchard is originally from Haiti. His artwork touches on religion, slavery, uprising and birth of freedom.

All of the artists were happy to show their work at Beaux Arts Gallery. Herbert said, “It’s a great place. I love Bryant (Martinez) and Debra’s (Bryant) work.” Herbert just moved to the area. Despite her recent relocation, she is making a name for herself having won third place at the Strawberry Festival Art Show in March. Herbert added, “The art show was fun. It was a very nice show.”

Duchard added, “This (Beaux Arts Gallery) is a very important place. It allows artists to show their work. This gallery is a very good idea. I find it very fantastic.”

Make sure to mark your calendar for the next “Thursday Night Live!” set for Thursday, May 24. You may be surprised and impressed with the artists that you will meet at this fantastic event.
