The Tour de Art, a coalition of galleries and artists’ studios, is Saturday, August 24, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. These Tours are held on the fourth Saturday, June through November with yellow signs marking the venues and maps are available at the gallery.
For this Tour de Art Andrew Braitman plans an Art Talk from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. He plans a discussion on beauty and substance in his creative process. He states, “these characteristics are more outstanding in my paintings than mere narrative based content”.
Braitman’s “Edge of Brilliance by Evolution” exhibition which can be viewed through September 15 consists of over twenty-five paintings ranging from 10” x 8” to 66” x 33”. His paintings project his brilliant color combinations and compositions which make his work very powerful and dramatic. He paints Mother Nature’s beauty along with a composed balance of elements to bring life and signature to his work.
Braitman is a full-time painter for over forty years with international stature. His paintings have been featured in galleries, one-man and group exhibitions in Santa Fe; Chicago; Atlanta; Millburn, New Jersey; Washington, D.C.; Noorbeck, Holland; Rio de Janiero and Curitiba, Brazil.
