Our current show "Flower Power" features Gary Bukovnik with a special tribute to Bob Kane. Bukovnik's watercolors fuse sensual vitality with fluid yet powerful colorations, creating floral images of great depth and intensity.
“I was fascinated by flowers from a very early age. My great grandmother had a rose garden into which no children were admitted.
I was perhaps two when I was allowed to enter – hands behind my back – allowed only to smell the blossoms. Sometimes she would give me the fallen petals which thrilled me.”
-- Gary Bukovnik
In 2003 and 2005, the American Academy in Rome invited Bukovnik to attend the academy as a Visiting Artist and provided him with a room and studio for six weeks. In 2001, he was selected to create a poster for the prestigious List Collection, which creates posters to commemorate programs at Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts in New York. Lincoln Center past contributors have included Roy Lichtenstein, Andy Warhol, Robert Motherwell, Helen Frankenthaler, Alex Katz, Elizabeth Murray, and Donald Sultan.
Bukovnik’s 2014 solo exhibitions include shows at Ansorena Galeria, Madrid, Spain, Today International Art Museum, Beijing, China, and Shanghai Honqiao Museum of Contemporary Art, Shanghai, China. Last year Bukovnik had exhibitions in China at Tianjin Museum of Art in Tianjin, Jiya Art Gallery in Quanzhou, and the US Embassy Beijing American Center, Beijing.

A special tribute to Bob Kane will also be on display at the Harmon-Meek Gallery. Bob Kane is perhaps best loved for his flower paintings, though this will be the first time a collection of just his flowers in will be on display.
This exhibition will run through March 7.
Our hours are 10 am to 5 pm, Monday through Saturday.
The web exhibition for this show is now available to view online by clicking here.
We also are available by appointment for private showings of a wide selection of works by the artists we represent. We provide private art consultation and can bring works to your home or office within Southwest Florida.
During the season we show new exhibitions regularly starting in November and running through April.
