One of the country’s greatest art collectors, Frederick Clay Bartlett, resided right here in Fort Lauderdale at the famed Bonnet House. Bartlett and his wife are credited with discovering many of the iconic impressionistic masters and introducing their works to the American public a century ago.
Fort Lauderdale collectors have a chance to discover the works of one of the breakout artists of last year’s Art Basel festival, GG (Gabriel Gimenez). A pop artist who calls Miami home, his recognizable style can be found on buildings in the trendy Wynwood and Design Districts. The 21-year-old artist has also had his works exhibited internationally and been hailed as one of the country’s most promising talents.
NAC Gallery, located at 3325 NE 32nd St. in Fort Lauderdale’s emerging art and design district, will be exhibiting GG’s paintings on Saturday, July 7 with a reception at 7 p.m. and no reserve auction beginning at 8:30 p.m. Aspiring art collectors will have an opportunity to own a work by one of the next generation of pop artists at true market prices, says Karla Livingston, assistant gallery director.
