HCA's 'Antiroom Gallery' opens doors on Thursday
Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING - Heartland Cultural Alliance is opening a new fine art gallery in the Kenilworth Lodge.
The "HCA Antiroom Gallery" has its own street entrance, a balcony overlooking Lake Jackson, built in tables for sculpture, and also opens to the Plantation Room where the lodge's main events take place.
The gallery's grand opening will take place from 6-8 p.m. Thursday at the Kenilworth Lodge. Ener on the southwest side of the lodge or through the lobby.
The opening show will feature upcoming, established and renowned local artists showing new works in a variety of medium.
Two original oil on wood paintings by Florida Master Artist Peter Powell Roberts will be shown for the first time and two Giclee prints on canvas of his work will be available.
Roberts' original oil on wood paintings are highly valued and only sold through Heartland Cultural Alliance. "Flip Flop", a photograph printed on metal from Cindy Rose's Beach Collection, will also debut as will as "Dimensions 201" by Fred Leavitt.
The event will include a book signing of new releases by two local authors: "Willenbron and the Gralumpy" by Cynthia Schumacher is a book for children that features many delightful illustrations by artist David White.
The book tells the legend of a Smoky Mountain troll named Willenbron who finds a mysterious object that he shares with his family.
This leads to a series of remarkable and surprising events affecting their future and the entire mountain area in which they live.
"A Christmas Moon," by Barbara A. Beswick and published by Mirror Publishing Co., is designed as a gift to be given and read to a child who loves bedtime stories.
This one is a Christmas story, blending the Baby Jesus' birth with Santa and Saint Nick.
It leaves spaces for the recipient child's name to be written in making it an exciting and cherished keepsake for years to come.
Beswick has taught children's art for many years, all over the country, was published by Prentice-Hall and invented this story as she told it to her grandchild one Christmas Eve when the moon was full.
The Artist's Reception and book signing will be from 6-8 pm. Classical guitar music by Kenny Summers. Wine, refreshments and appetizers will be available.
This free event is free and open to the public.
