Gallery Walk - Frederick hart Exhibition

A Major Art Event

A very large and expansive group of sculpture from internationally acclaimed sculptor Frederick Hart (b.1943 – d.1999) will be on display at Brilliance In Color Gallery, 25 King Street in the Plaza area of downtown St. Augustine this Weekend, November 11th and 12th (Fri/Sat). This show is of National significance and importance, and over 80 distinct bronze and acrylic creations from Hart are on exhibit and available for acquisition. The exhibition is open to the public throughout the month of November.
Hart’s sculpture can be seen in public displays in Brookgreen Gardens, Newington-Cropsey Foundation Gallery, as well as the courtyard of the Lightner Museum here in the Ancient City. Harts’ widow Lindy will be in attendance throughout the weekend, along with Robert Chase, publisher and life-long friend of the artist. “This will be our major effort of 2011 to provide Florida residents with an opportunity of seeing, in great preponderance, the art of a major iconic American figure”, said Len Cutter (president, Cutter & Cutter Fine Art). Advanced viewers have already been deeply moved and overwhelmed by such pieces as “Daughters of Odessa”, trilogy bronze, which will be seen for the first time ever at Brilliance In Color. (The Prince of Wales has had for years at his Highgrove residence in the UK the same grouping.) The cultural aspects and impact of this exhibition are palpable and First Coast residents will be enthralled with what they see. Mr. Cutter also stated that, “St. Augustine has returned to its former place of glory among art locales in America with this exhibition, and the continuing growth of the downtown art district.”
