The Effects of Art as Manifestation on Artist and Viewer

Multidisciplinary Exhibition

The Frank art gallery in Pembroke Pines presents "Visual Therapy – The Effects of Art as Manifestation on Artist and Viewer," an exhibition showcasing the work of 14 different artists that looks at the impact of art on both the artist and the viewer.

The multidisciplinary exhibition, is curated by Stacy Conde, gallery director of Conde Contemporary.

Visual Therapy examines the psychological motivations of the artists and the response their work evokes in the viewer. Through video installations, photorealistic, academic and expressionistic portraiture, conceptual art, surrealism, photography and performance art, visitors will have a di- rect view into the mind of the artistic creators. Artists featured in the exhibition include Anthony Ar- davin, Julio Figeroa Beltran, Patricio Gonzalez Bezanilla, Bill Bilowit, Andres Conde, Luis Enrique Toledo Del Rio, Agnes Grochulska, Natasha Kertes, Marylin Loddi, Reynier Llanes Marquez, Dar- ian Rodriguez Mederos, Raiman Rodriguez Moya, Luis Rodriguez Noa and Enrique Toledo.

"Though conventional wisdom would have us focus on art and not the artist, Visual Therapy takes a deeper dive into how it was created and what it elicits," said Conde. "Some emotions will corre- late and others will be completely opposite. What is so amazing about art is how people interpret it."

As part of the exhibition, art appreciation workshops will be offered for adults and children led by curator, writer and art critic Yuneikys Villalonga. The adult art appreciation workshop is 2 to 4 p.m. on Saturday, September 30 and the children's art appreciation workshop for children age eight to 12 is noon to 2 p.m. on Saturday, October 14.
