Syd Entel Galleries and Susan Benjamin Glass at 247 Main Street in Safety Harbor presents the artwork of internationally known artist Helen Zarin.  Opening Reception Saturday March 25th, 2023  Show runs through April 22

Helen Zarin’s creative journey has progressed for over 30 years.  Her work with mixed media, oil and collage is sophisticated yet vibrant and playful. Her subject matter incredibly diverse includes figures, faces, landscapes and flowers. Ever evolving her new Vision Series shows off an impressionistic abstract style bursting with colors. This new incredible collection of works is a show not to be missed!

Born in Shirae, Iran in 1970, Helen Zarin can remember beginning to paint at the early age of five.  Showing talent, her influential family encouraged her to invest in her artistic endeavors. Helen was recognized by the Iranian Society and earned many national awards for her works. Conditions in her native country eventually compelled Helen to turn elsewhere for creative nourishment.

Helen continued her education here in the United States and her career as a professional artist has flourished. She is represented in galleries throughout, Canada and the USA.

Eventov Working2

A Meet the Artist Reception will be held on

Saturday February 11, 2023 5-8 P.M.

Maya Eventov grew up in Leningrad in the former Soviet Union. St. Petersburg, as it is now known, is a city fabled for its beauty and culture. At a very young age her parents introduced her to the great artistic treasures of the city. Countless hours were spent at the magnificent Hermitage Museum studying the works of great masters.

She worked on her education and after graduating in 1987 with a master’s degree in graphic design, she began working as an illustrator for children’s books. Maya took advantage of the fall of the Iron Curtain by travelling, exploring the lands of her dreams. In the early 1990s she immigrated to Canada. Here she found an immediate appreciation for her artwork and quickly became involved in the local art scene. This now successful international artists is represented in galleries throughout, Great Britain, Canada and the USA.  Maya Eventov doesn’t just paint with her hands; she paints with her entire being.  Her acrylic paintings instantly recognizable are uniquely sculpted, using a palette knife technique. The paint rises from the canvas like a sculpture creating a window to her vision.



Known for her birch tree series and florals Maya connects the viewer to nature.  Her abstracts and portraits demonstrate another side of her creativity.  Her colors are alive, exploding onto the canvases channeling her love and passion. This is a rare opportunity to meet Maya and purchase something from her latest collection.
