Celebrating our 29th year!
Remember our first newsletters about the artists we represent, the
interviews with collectors, our state-of-the-art frame shop, our staff
articles, and sometimes a fun puzzle and an art dictionary? We want to keep
you current and now we are sending it to you by E-Mail on what is
happening at Syd Entel Galleries and Susan Benjamin Glass, etc.
Many of the well-known artists we believed in 29 years ago continue to be
collected in our galleries today.
We are dedicated to introduce more artists with whom we have a harmonious relationship
and believe in their uniqueness and creativity. Many of these artists greet you at our
Opening Receptions and we all enjoy these personal events. Our sensitivity and
considerable insight to your art preferences and tastes keeps us dedicated to maintain an
up-to-date art and glass galleries inventory.
We want to keep you informed. We thank you for your expressions of gratitude in all these
years and we hope that it will continue for many more years to come.
The late art critic Henry McBride wrote “The greatness in the arts is obtained from 2
sources—from nature and from within one’s self. Art is nature plus human nature”.
First of all, thank you all for taking the time to open up this virtual
newsletter. I am extremely cognizant of violating your email space and
hopefully my infrequent, fun, and beautiful email blasts will only brighten
your day and enrich your art appreciation.
Recently, I was advised that we were in a recession…defined as: A General
Slowdown in Economic Activity.
Hmmmmmmmmm, I thought. Business is a bit slower, however for some reason I feel richer.
How is this you may ask??? I believe it is because of what surrounds me everyday. More than
ever incredible talented artists approach the gallery, showing me their work and I fall in love
all over again. Maybe… the word recession in the art field means talented artists are coming
out of the woodwork!
So, please, don’t hold back. Come on into the galleries and we will share our beautiful visual
environment with you!!! Come see our newest Sculptural Glass Artists and our newest
Textural Paintings and Hand Embellished Giclees. Also, don’t miss our Eclectic Jewelry
Collection and our Unbelievable Framing selections – guaranteed to enhance and spruce up
your existing artwork.
Uplift your spirits, come share our Passion for ART and GLASS.
Thank you for your continued loyalty to Syd Entel Galleries
Bold New Gestural Landscapes
We welcome artist John Kneapler to the gallery. John is a gestural painter whose work is
defined by powerful brushstrokes and a wonderful sense of fluidity. Now based in New York,
John grew up in Miami and his paintings truly capture the color and movement of the South
Florida coast. Mark your calendar for October 24th to meet John and see his exciting new
Master Glass Artist
Jeffrey P’an specializes in
fusing & blowing glass into
mosaic vessel forms.
His work is based on the reinvention of old world techniques into
the design of modern objects. The transparency of the glass is key
to Jeff’s work. The light passes through the vessels blending colors,
patterns and textures.
Kristin has been designing and making jewelry and art objects
for 30 years.
Inspiration comes from bold shapes and forms and objects with
color and movement. Kristin’s unique jewelry designs and small
sculptures are created with gold, silver, precious and non-
precious materials, found objects and glass.
