It was a personal challenge to create an environment that is more than just a stylish boutique hotel or restaurants simply with art.  I wanted to create a contemporary meeting place that had a buzz about it and where people would want to go as a destination for either their vacation, their evening, or special event.

Founder & Curator


Tamanian –



Paul Tamanian has forged a robust visual vocabulary, resulting in a two-man show with Jim Dine and a cover article in American Style magazine. From larger than life sculptural forms to small, intimate 3-dimensional works, to eye-popping wall pieces, the breadth of Tamanian’s work is unique in the art world, and is being recognized as such across the U.S.A. and abroad.

There are two elements that power Tamanian’s work: his relentless experiments with form and his scorched-earth surface treatments. Paul Tamanian is seeking to create a new language of metal and paint. At times he makes aluminum look as delicate and as fragile as glass; at other times his work exudes the roughness of clay or hewn stone.

Born in New York, Tamanian received his degree from Florida State University. He discovered an affinity for clay by attending a pottery class at a local community center. He moved rapidly from basic skills to technical innovation, and then from clay on to aluminum. He has gone on to exhibit across the United States and has been invited to show his works in the company of some of America’s foremost craftsmen and artists, including William Morris, Jun Kaneko, and Richard Jolley.

He works primarily in enamel paint on pre-primed aluminum — raw materials that are extremely expensive.  People don’t realize that it can take dozens of experimental works to end up with one little area that I’m happy with. ” Even after years as a professional artist, Tamanian is still always trying new things. He believes in what he calls the “what if?” factor, and is always willing to risk ruining a piece in order to try a new technique. “I like edgier stuff,” he says. “I might have to do 50 paintings to learn how to make a new method work…”

Tamanian’s work has been commissioned and acquired by noted private collectors and corporations, ranging from film stars such as Halle Berry and Barry Bostwick, and playwright Neil Simon, to Delta Airlines and Data Maxx Corp.

Neira –



Alexandra Neira was born in Bogota, Colombia, where her natural love for the art began. Over the years, having had the opportunity to travel through and live in other countries, she gained great knowledge and appreciation of other cultures and architecture that surrounded her.  Drawn to and fascinated by the aesthetic and structural elements of architecture, along with her interest in photography, she began furthering her discoveries in mixed-media applications that are now the brand of her latest series.

As a graphic designer I began to feel very commercial with my career and decided to continue my long life study of all arts, including Oil painting,  Photography, Drawing, Ceramics and Art History among others. I found my artistic voice by combining personal photography and painting skills to express a sense of place, juxtaposed with mystery, which invites the viewer to be a participant rather than just a spectator. As a passionate world wide traveler, my photographs and paintings bring home a slice of the places others may never experience, by introducing cultures and the mystery of far away lands thru my work .




Steve Bowersock –


Bowersock is a bit surreal, or maybe just a little dreamy; it depends on how you view the work.  Bowersock’s art straddles the new neo-surrealism, surreal and dreamscape disciplines; it is mindscape, or an escape from reality that fosters subconscious exploration.

Bowersock, a native of the Ohio alluminum mill region “where velvet Elvis’s were fine art,” started to pursue painting seriously nearly two decades, following a stint in the US Marine Corp. He studied at Granite State College, in New Hampshire, and at Sanctuary Arts, Eliot, Maine.

Bowersock has exhibited in numerous invitational and curated exhibitions throughout the East Coast. He received Best in Show at the Gallery at 100 Market in Portsmouth NH, and addition recognitions. He is currently a resident of Provincetown, Massachusetts.

So much of the mystery is implied in the use of his symbolism, colors, startling reds and blues, or soothing greens and earth tones. But it is the language that moves us to search first the canvas then ourselves. They rouse a contemplative unease, an enigma to solve.

Derek Gores –
Curriculum Vitae 535568_10151318047786754_2054186551_n

In his collage portraits, Derek Gores recycles magazines, labels, data, and assorted found analog and digital materials to create the works on canvas. The series showcases Gores’ contrasting interests in the living beauty of the figure, the angular and abstract design aesthetics of fashion, and a fearless sense of play. His fine art canvases are exhibited by galleries in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Sydney, Cologne, Miami, Santa Fe and more. Gores’ design clients include Dwell Magazine, Lincoln Motor Co., ESPN, Lenny Kravitz, Lucasfilm, Kings of Leon, U2, Adidas, Madonna, Harley Davidson, Standard Collective, the National Football League, LiveNation, SEIU and more.

The Rhode Island School of Design grad lives and works in Melbourne, Florida, exhibiting and curating with the bold upstarts there, surrounded by the intellect and culture of the Space Coast. Derek was honored to have his work selected for the Manifest Hope DC exhibit coinciding with the Presidential Inauguration in 2009, and in 2010 he was named “One of the 40 important artists of the New Contemporary Movement”, while in an exhibition in London.

“I like my pictures to barely come together with teasing little details. Sort of like how the mind can’t help but wander, even when trying to focus on one thing. In the collages, some of the little bits I use are deliberate, but in most I’m trusting randomness to help build an end result more interesting than I could have planned. One friend calls it a ‘Zen Narrative. ”



Janet M. Mueller
Curriculum Vitae

Artist: Janet M. Mueller

Artist: Janet M. Mueller

Janet Mueller’s paintings are bold images created by throwing large strokes of crudely mixed paint at canvases.   Though the images appear to be simple, the meaning behind them is oftentimes complex.  Strokes may represent people; rage circles with wild cases depict the light.

Things found along her path on Miami streets transform into elements of the work as well.  Pieces of found metal and odd discarded debris turn into three dimensional forms that interact with the paintings.  Janet combines varnished tree debris and found objects with molded class to create sculptures, many of which are kinetic.  Hanging mobiles dance in front of paintings bringing the view into an expanded dimension. Many of Mueller’s canvasses are stabled to frames made from weathered wood pallets.  Sometimes scraps of canvas are dean together and crackle medium applied over the seams.  The cracked paint and old wood add character and depth to the work, but the images are forever contemporary.

Originally from Champaign, IL Jane Mueller has lived in South Florida for more than 20 years.  Her work as been show in galleries in Miami, New York City, Lexington, KY, and Rome Italy – and has been purchased by collectors all over the world.

Danilo Gonzalez –

Danilo Gonzalez was born in 1963, in the Dominican Republic where he began his life and education.  Living in Paris, France, New York, Caracas, and Mexico, before returning to the United States to establish with the West Branch Gallery & Sculpture Park, in Stowe, Vermont and then in Wynwood Miami Florida. He has worked in many mediums over his 30 year career, including performance art, drawing, printmaking, sculpture, and painting. He is in constant search for new techniques and ideas to integrate to his future body of work, focusing mainly in the industrial and recycling materials. His work has been awarded and honored in several biennials and art contests, and has been shown extensively across the United States, France, Venezuela, Puerto Rico, Switzerland, Belgium, Cuba, Mexico, Colombia, Canada, Ecuador, Italy, Japan, England, Morocco, Martinique, Guadalupe, Chile, Spain, amongst others. His work can be found in several private, government and corporate collections around the world, which includes the permanent collections of the Housatonic Museum of Connecticut, Musèe du Colombie in France, Museum of Modern Art in the Dominican Republic, el Centro Leon, Museo del Hombre Dominicano, Museo de Historia y Geografia, la Casa Consistorial de Santiago, el Centro de Arte de la Victoria in Venezuela, Museo Soto, and Museo del Dibujo, among others.

Danilo Gonzalez’ environmental alarm of how human activity, such as growth in population, motivates him to comprehend psychological and behavioral designs of civilization as a global and expanding species. The unraveling destruction of planet Earth and collective place that humanity shares prompts the viewer to accept personal responsibility.

His bodies of work explore “The Forest,” the physical land people occupy as civilizations; “Interior”, the personal habitats one create to shield the hostilities of nature; and “Heads,” that expose subconscious psyches.

Claude Charlier –
Curriculum Vitae

Claude 1

Claude Charlier is a French artist born in Nancy. Since childhood, his parents instilled a love for art in him by taking him to art museums, classical music concerts and giving him to have private lessons of painting, music and piano. His painting teacher always allowed him to follow his inspiration and only gave him advice that served him all his life. But, feeling that something was lacking, Claude picked up a camera and started to photograph all the events occurring around him. That’s how he had his first scoop in Paris Match at the young age of 19 and was asked to work for the magazine.

It was  during that time that he met  Terayama Shuji, writer & director of  the Tenjo Saijiki, and also Suzuki Tadashi director of the Wasedo Shogekijo.  Claude began collaborating with them and also wrote and directed his first theater play. Throughout his life, spending time with people like John Lennon, Muhammad Ali, Akira Kurosawa, Pierre Cardin, Paul Schrader, etc… really gave him a new perspective of life as an artist. So, Claude decided to go back to painting and that’s how the Pop World Project was born – using soda cans, cigarette packs, and vintage lunch boxes  that he had collected for years, he turns them into hyper realistic paintings on canvas.



Katherine Baltivik –


In many ways, artist Katherine Baltivik is Provincetown.  “I came here in the early seventies,” the artist and co-owner of the Charles-Baltivik Gallery says.
“I knew I belonged here. So I made a plan and worked my derrière off and made it happen.”

Baltivik didn’t just want to be another painter working in Provincetown: she wanted everything—her life, her art, her civic involvement—to be intricately interwoven with the town.  “I came here with this dream, to capture the history of the town and its ever-changing façade,” she says. It’s that façade for which she has become rightfully famous: her intricate renditions of houses, public buildings, boats, dunes, and harbor.  “My painting styles are directly influenced by Provincetown masters such as Blanche Lazell and the color theories of Hans Hoffman,” Baltivik says.

“My work is always changing as I am continuously refining it, from doing detailed works on copper to town-centered themes on maplewood, to landscapes and buildings, shorelines and oceans. What I’m really trying to do is portray the real Provincetown through my eyes.”

An open door
But what is it about this place that is so magical to her?

“I fit here,” Baltivik answers with a shrug and a smile. “I love it all: the lifestyle and people. The water. The magnificent ever-changing environment. The hidden places. The quiet winters to paint. The busy summers with all that you can do. I live on the top of a dune where I am high above it all and surrounded by quiet …”
“Provincetown is rich in art and history,” Baltivik says. “I feel part of that, and I’m developing a place in the long line of artists that came before me and will come after me.”  She is intensely aware of her place in that continuum of Provincetown artists—and of her mission to the town.   “My gallery keeps the same tradition, Provincetown art by those who love the town and work here, their Provincetown. As both an artist and a gallery owner, Provincetown and its history is always my focus.”

Marianela Holly –

With Venus in Love - Version 2

Art Education: Bellas Artes (Cali – Colombia b. 1972).  Marianela grew up surrounded by walls decorated with copies of renaissance paintings –  always intrigued by the idealized mythological characters, what they represented, and how they were portrayed.

After working as a artist for over 17 years and falling in love with pop art, its colors, and playfulness, she decided to bring back the characters she grew up with into her art.

Marianela plays with the relationship between characters, clothes, settings, and feelings. She looks at Michelangelo’s Creation of Adam, for example, and asks herself where he would have chosen to be born if he had been given the opportunity.

“By night, the lights of art lifted my heart and spirit. By day, the reality of life pulled me downward to earth. Day after day, work filled my time and claimed my energy. Night after night, dreams invaded my sleep. To me these were my invitations to create something of beauty with my hands.” M.Holly.

Emilio Martinez –


Honduran born American artist Emilio Martinez embraced painting as a means of expression.  Born in Tegucigalpa, Honduras in 1981. He immigrated with his family to Miami in 1994 where he has since lived and resided.

His work comes to life through his persistence of the dream realm – created through the constant repetitive dreams from his childhood memories. He is in ongoing contact with the spiritual world through icons, symbols and texts from an unknown past of ancient primitive indigenous descendants.   His work comes to life through the Bi-cultural puzzle, which he de-codes, on a daily basis using a sketchbook where he records like a dairy, his obsessions, passions and fears.

His palette is of a true colorist. His imagery from the primitive warriors of the past rendered Emilio one of the most authentic creators in Miami.  He is currently represented in Miami by The Purvis Young Estate Gallery and will be announcing an installation in a museum of modern art before Art Basel Miami 2014.  Stay tuned here for details.

He has works in private and corporate collections in the U.S. and abroad.

Javier Echenique –
Curriculum Vitae

Screen Shot 2014-11-05 at 6.01.42 PM - Version 2

Javier de Echenique-Vico was born in Madrid to a family of artists. He is the son of Maria Teresa Vico, painter and piano teacher, and Ángel de Echenique Ubide, one of the founding fathers of Radio and TV in Spain. His paternal grandfather, Angel de Echenique Pardo, was Secretary General at the Prado Museum. Javier had the privilege to grow up in a unique artistic environment, thus developing an eclectic and Mediterranean style.

His colorful creations have been published in countries like Spain, Chile, Argentina, and the US.  His next upcoming exhibitions of paintings will be carried out in Colombia in Bogota and Cartagena, and in Miami during the last months of 2014 and early 2015.

A graduate in Advertising and Marketing, he later studied Design and Art History in Lisbon. A versatile entrepreneur, Javier owned several franchises and directed radio programs in Madrid. As Account Manager in Lisbon, among his clients we find Citibank, Blockbuster, Fiat, Lancia and Alfa Romeo. He also designed the office of the President at Ericsson Portugal and several outstanding residences in Cascais and Estoril close to the coast of Lisbon in Portugal.

Painting remains his grand passion. Javier has been quoted in the medias as saying:

“A natural born creator must know when to leave all things non-essential and dedicate his/her life to the pursuit of happiness; that golden bough is only to be found in the process of creation. Like squizofrenics do – godly angels capable of smelling colors – I intend to let my hands go and be inspired by the scent of the blue in their quest for meaning.”
