ÆRENA Galleries & Gardens

Reflecting the heroic spirit of Teddy Roosevelt’s provocative “Man in the Arena” speech, ÆRENA Galleries & Gardens creates captivating spaces that celebrate the work of over one hundred emerging to internationally renowned artists who fearlessly express authenticity and integrity their work.

“It is not the critic who counts. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly.”
- Theodore Roosevelt

ÆRENA Galleries & Gardens’ uniquely beautiful art and design venues feature contemporary art and sculpture, as well as finely-edited collections of furnishings, objects and curiosities dating from the 18th century to the present.




THE ENDURING ARTWORK OF ROBERT HOLMES

JANUARY 15TH - JANUARY 31ST

VIEW FULL EXHIBITION PORTFOLIO HERE

ÆRENA Galleries & Gardens is excited to invite you to discover the enduring works of sculptor Robert Holmes.

A civil engineer for 30 years, Holmes exhibited and sold his sculptures since 1975 in the United States, Europe, South America, and Asia. Well-known for his oeuvre of semiabstract, curvilinear, cast bronze figures, Holmes’ contemporary work expresses a nurturing, universal quality which celebrates the joy of being and the joy of movement.

Uplifting emotions are a central theme in his work. Through the human form, Holmes conveys a Zen-like serenity of grace, optimism, and strength. Jayne McGuire, in her review of Holmes' work for The Del Mar Sculpture Garden in Del Mar, California, states: “Holmes's contemporary figurative work, especially his life-giving female figure, expresses a nurturing, universal quality which celebrates the joy of being, the joy of movement, and our basic human need for ‘connectedness.’ A consistent vitality is present in all of Holmes' figures, evident in the graceful movement of his dancers and runners, and in the solitary stillness of his reclining and seated figures.”

Join ÆRENA Galleries & Gardens in celebrating the enduring work and legacy of Robert Holmes.
