Gallery of Amazing Things and Wiener Museum of Decorative Arts host Lladró Painting Demonstration Event, April 29th 2014.
DANIA BEACH, FL. South Florida’s Gallery of Amazing Things (G.O.A.T.) and Wiener Museum of Decorative Arts (WMODA) will host a free presentation and painting demonstration on April 29th by Lladró painter, Amparo Martinez.
Lladró porcelain sculptures are world-renowned for their distinctive hand-painted colors, precise design and fascinating themes. This event will launch bold new color mixtures for the high porcelain figurines and home decor. Martinez, visiting from Lladro’s “City of Porcelain” in Valencia, Spain, will discuss the process and history of numerous Lladró pieces, and highlight the event with a painting demonstration rarely witnessed outside of Lladro’s own Valencia workshops.
To RSVP for the 5 p.m. – 8 p.m. event, please visit www.galleryamazing.com.
“Having a Lladró artist visit and tour our works is a very special event in itself,” said Miami Beach entrepreneur Arron Rimpley, co-owner of G.O.A.T. “To have her actually paint outside of the Lladró studios for museum and gallery guests will be an even more extraordinary experience.”
The newly-opened WMODA is located on the second floor of the 50,000-square-foot G.O.A.T at 481 South Federal Highway in Dania Beach, just south of Fort Lauderdale – Hollywood International Airport.
The museum displays an extensive collection of Lladró sculptures as well as thousands of works from the world’s top ceramic and glass artists, amassed by private collector Arthur Wiener and his family.
In addition to Lladró, WMODA features a vast collection of 19th and 20th century British ceramics from factories such as Minton, Royal Doulton, Copeland, Martin Brothers, Wedgwood and Moorcroft, as well as a wide range of glass art from Dale Chihuly, Toots Zynsky, William Morris, Paul Stankard and others.
Gallery of Amazing Things offers the latest Lladró creations as well as eclectic pieces of contemporary art, antiques, furniture, natural history and many other “amazing things” available for purchase. Current collections include World War II naval binoculars, aviation-inspired sculpture, fine art, fossil murals and rare crystal specimens.
Gallery of Amazing Things and WMODA are free and open to the public Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 6p.m. Private tours can be arranged by calling 954-376-6690. For more information, visit www.galleryamazing.com or www.wmoda.com.
