About the Gallery

The concept is different than that of traditional galleries in that the goal is to make art accessible to patrons in a comfortable, relaxed, and living environment where art lovers can take in the art while on vacation, dinning, enjoying a drink, or listening to live music. To achieve this, the White Porch Gallery provides installations to and partners with boutique hotels, hip restaurants, and lounges thus integrating the art, dinning, vacation, and overall life experiences. By doing this, it affords the patrons more time with the art – enabling them to take it in, enjoy it, and become connected to a series of or a particular piece … or to simply enjoy the art over drinks with friends.

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.

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 –
Curriculum Vitae

images
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.

Katherine Baltivik –
Curriculum Vitae

charles-baltivik-gallery-provincetown-art

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.”
