Syd Entel Galleries and Susan Benjamin Glass Etc. Presents Artist – Designer – Author Margaret Juul

Syd Entel Galleries and Susan Benjamin Glass at 247 Main Street in Safety Harbor
 is excited to presents this summer exhibition with 
Artist, Designer and Author Margaret Juul. 
The show hours are Monday – Friday 9:30- 5 PM and Saturday 10-3 pm. 
Tumbling underneath waves amidst effervescent aqua tones, Margaret Juul’s paintings 
are fresh and original expressions of the colors and patterns of water in motion. Her 
artistic life has always been inspired by the Sea. 
 
The artist uses her imagination to distill the kinetic essence of something never at rest. 
Irregular shapes of green and blue cover the canvas, reminiscent of the brilliant marine 
hues that convey water in 19th century Japanese woodblock prints. Close inspection 
reveals rough, textured surfaces from the thick application of media on linen, including 
oil, acrylic and oil pastel, reiterating the earthly and organic nature of her subject. 
After training in fine art studies at Chicago’s Columbia College, she furthered her 
advanced education in interior design at The International Academy of Design and 
Technology.   By 2007, she had accumulated an extraordinary portfolio, as well as 
acceptance into the prestigious International Interior Design Association; specializing in 
color, custom textiles, décor and fine art selection.  
 
Margaret‘latest accomplishment is the publication of her book which has been 3 years 
in the making. A Love Letter to Home  The Art of Creating your Nest explores various 
methods, philosophies and tools to teach the reader strategies for creating the ideal 
space for life, work and play — a home.

Alex Sepkus Now Available in Our Online Gallery

 

Alex describes the intricate detail work in his jewelry as universal with a focus on basic forms, structures and textures. I stopped making sketches years ago, he said. I imagine the piece I want to make in my head, and the hands work by themselves. Sometimes I get surprised at what comes out.

Alex begins with a wax model, which is eventually cast in 18kt gold, or platinum and then hand-finished. “I have no technical secrets,” says Sepkus. “The main trick is in the very intricate manual work that goes into the process. I can explain the process to everybody. But at the same time, I don’t think that I have ever seen a copy of my work somewhere. It is just so labor intensive.” In fact, Sepkus has developed his own specialized tools to achieve the textures that make his pieces so recognizable.

 

Alex’s jewelry is now available in our online shop. Special Orders also available.

Helen Zarin, Artist in Attendance! Opening Reception October 28 6-8 PM

Meet the artist and hear about her journey!

 

Helen Zarin hails from the ancient metropolis of Shiraz, Persia, which is home to poets, writers, architects, gardens, world famous pistachios, and the internationally acclaimed Shiraz red wine grapes. 

Helen grew up as an Orthodox Jew in a Muslim land. This presented her with many challenges and difficulties. Helen can remember beginning to paint at the early age of five. Showing talent, her influential family encouraged her to invest in her artistic endeavors.

 

As a high school student, she studied with the well-known Persian artist and teacher, Saber.  Later she enrolled in the Art and Culture Society, a national organization for gifted Persian artists.  As a student of art and culture, she refined her skills in the various mediums, especially pastels and oils.  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.  “Hard work and talent are not enough for an artist to progress and blossom; creative freedom in the right atmosphere is essential”, she remarked.  In the pursuit of these artistic prerequisites, she journeyed first to Europe where she displayed her works in Vienna before coming to the U.S. in 1993.

Her painting style delves into the impressionistic with abstract elements of bold color. Her sweeping brush strokes flow across her paintings pouring the emotion of love, intimacy, joy and angst onto her canvases.

 Helen has acquired a worldwide following of collectors. In 2104 her work was included in an exhibition at the Mizel Judaic Museum in Denver Colorado and hung with the work of Chagall and other notable Jewish artists.            

 Helen brings to the gallery a body of new work which will include her concept of dance, music, abstracts, flowers and atmospheric landscapes. Zarin shares her artistic vision to the world despite all odds.
