There is this “Myth of the Muse” that pervades artist culture (is there such a thing as artist culture? Berets, cappuccino and oblique sardonic musings about the state of society shared over Gruyère and cabernet? Sounds good. Count me in!).Read More

If you missed the Collector's First View at ArtPalmBeach then you missed our fun ‘Art Hive dresses’ walking the art fair! These dresses were created by (my!) high school students at Lake Worth High School- made from past issues of Art Hive Magazine and modeled by Amanda and Eleanore. You can still see the paper dresses displayed in our booth, #554. Visit @studio2_110 or check out #LWHSfashionclub on Instagram to see the dresses ‘in progress’ over the past few months!
In addition to our ‘live fashion art’ there was all the work from the talented artist represented by galleries across the world. We will be posting more images on Instagram, but here are just a few images from the evening. If you are local, make sure you get out to this exciting event!
Whether you go to check out the art or ‘people watch’, you will get more than an eyeful at Palm Beach Modern + Contemporary. Two tips, if possible park away from the event and walk (or get dropped off, your feet will thank you!) and look for your copy of Art Hive Magazine- because we are sponsors!

"Torezan is a contemporary artist living in South Florida in the United States. Inspired by modernist abstractions and the modern lifestyle in the Mid-20th century, the artist developed a unique style creating hard-edged compositions seen in his paintings, sculptures, and murals.
In his timeless work, geometric forms seem to be floating around each other as the contrasting colors enhance the exuberant depth effect, creating a sensation of burgeoning life.
Torezan's works of art were recently exhibited at The Baker Museum, Coral Springs Museum of Art, as well as in international art fairs represented by prestigious art galleries.
Among Torezan's artistic collaborations are public art projects, philanthropic organizations, and partnerships with brands such as the Swiss watchmaker Tag Heuer.
His work is part of collections in the United States, Europe, and South America.

Carmen Smith’s paintings explore emotional and intellectual attachments. Central to her practice is engagement with the urban landscape and observation of the architectural styles, colors, light, nature, and the cycle of renewal and decay of places in her own neighborhood and home area of South Florida. Her careful selection of familiar but anonymous locations combined with use of bright, almost neon color and dramatic light work to reinforce her central concept and idea that places influence our experiences, inform our memories, and can even become part of our identity. Carmen’s imagery comes from her own drawings, reference photographs, historical architectural research, news stories, found photographs, stories and memories. Her work inspires a novel perspective on imagery often observed passively, and one gets the sense that there is a metaphysical presence in her simple, vibrant, psychologically charged compositions.

Take notice of abstract artist Judi Regal as she showcases her knack for color and expressionism through her one of a kind paintings.
As an art critic, it’s not unusual for me to receive hundreds of press releases from galleries and museums about their related events almost every day. The greatest advantage in reading these seemingly endless daily “briefs” is that unsurprisingly you gain an accurate perspective on the international art world, as well as information that pertains to South Florida and the immediate community, which are the geographical areas that I most frequently cover. Accordingly, it’s always rewarding to come across an ambitious artist in mid-career who possesses a brilliant sense of color and composition, along with an independent voice of creativity and individuality.Read More
