"We are thrilled to be able to host this art show and reception at Martha Clara Vineyards," shared Melissa Martin, ADD Marketing Coordinator. "It gives our organization the opportunity to showcase diverse creativity of both our own residents and professional artists who have supported our fundraising efforts and collaborated with us."
Gach Peelle is the granddaughter of WWI memorial sculptor Stephen Gach and daughter of international sculptor/painter George Gach. The Budapest born artist studied at Art Students League, the National Academy of Fine Art, and the Kokoschka School. Her works span across a multitude of mediums, including oil, acrylic, lead, conte, pen & ink, gouache, pastel, graphics, mosaics and painting on silk and ceramics, as does her subject matter, which revolves around portraits, the figure, animals, landscapes, still lifes and more. She has been featured in 18 solo exhibitions and has documented over 2,000 portraits.
Makewell, a Miami based painter who was born in New York City
, began painting still lives with his mother and sculpting with his grandfather. Eventually, Makewell moved on to figure drawing and portraiture, studying with contemporary experts in Italy and the United States.
More recently, the artist has been dabbling in abstraction
In addition to the exceptional artwork, the evening will include wine from Martha Clara, food by Lombardi
's Love Lane Market, and live music by Dallas Louis.
"Our reception on May 17th will be a wonderful gathering of our community, infusing art, wine, food and artistic talent!" Martin added.
Admission to the reception is free.
