Welcome to my Gallery at Gannon’s Antiques and Art in Ft Myers, Florida. I am a self-taught artist that has been creating free standing and relief sculpture for the past 40 years. My sculpture is highly diverse ranging in style from figurative to abstraction and in media that includes bronze, resin, handmade paper, wood and Styrofoam.
My sculpture is included in many prominent public, corporate, and private collections around the World. A partial list of these collections would include: The Kentucky Derby Museum, The Arts Club of Washington, Key Bank Corporation, Anne Arundel County, Maryland. Metropolitan Life Insurance Company, The Maktoum Family, New- York Racing Association, Hialeah Park, The National Museum of Racing, and Ohio State University.
Among the fine art galleries who have represented my work include Payson/Midtown Gallery (New York), Meisner Gallery (New York), Hobe Sound Gallery (Hobe Sound, FL), Nan Miller Gallery (Rochester NY), Addi Galleries (Las Vegas & Reno), Townhouse Gallery (New Orleans), Gallery 50 (Rehoboth DE), Merriam Fisher Gallery (Washington DC).
I also have several large bronze sculptures on permanent, public display in Annapolis, MD, Washington, DC, Baltimore, MD, Birmingham, AL, Montgomery AL, New York, NY and Columbus, OH
Awards for my art have been conferred by: The Salmagundi Club, New York, The Academy Art Museum, Easton MD, Rehoboth Art League, Rehoboth DE, and The Art Centers of Bonita Springs, among others. I am a member of the International Sculpture Center and The International Association of Paper Making Artists.
My work has been favorably reviewed in numerous media outlets including: The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Albany Times Union, The Toronto Star, Delaware State News, Departure’s magazine, Home Companion magazine, Southwest Art, Hunterdon Life, Blood Horse, and artFcity.com. My art has also been featured on The Ellen, and Phil Donahue television shows.
I create art that expresses my inner world and love of nature. I believe that sculpture should never be frozen in time rather it should always convey movement, like poetry in motion. In short, "sculpture with a pulse".
My most recent exhibition was a pre-Covid month long solo show in December of 2019 at the Centers for the Arts Bonita Springs Tranovich Gallery. The show featured more than 25 of my works representing different phases of my career.
I have created all the work shown in my gallery. When you do visit my gallery, I know you will find one of the most accomplished, diverse and intriguing collections to be found in Florida. I work from my studio in North Naples, FL.
My Gallery is open daily from 10:00AM to 5:30PM, and Sundays from 11:00AM to 4:00PM
