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.




ROBERT MARS

ARTIFACTS

MAY 1-31, 2020

VIEW FULL EXHIBITION PORTFOLIO HERE

ÆRENA Galleries & Gardens invites you to celebrate our newest solo exhibition, ARTIFACTS by Robert Mars. Drawing inspiration from the fame that surrounded celebrities such as Marilyn Monroe or Audrey Hepburn, Mars creates paintings with nostalgic yet innovative vintage quality. His graphic compositions and rich colors provide an ideal medium in which to explore his fascination with the Golden Age of American popular culture and the icons of the 1950's and 60's. 

 Beginning by defining borders and background planes of color with sheets of brown paper, Mars proceeds to layer paint and vintage paer ephemera. He selectively sands segments of the layers, allowing specific portions of the underpainting to come through, creating the sensation the viewer is getting glimpes through a window into the past.By incorporating actual pieces of print from the eras he adores and sealing it all under shining, impenetrable resin, Mars' artwork transform into artifacts of a period from America's idolized past. 

Join ÆRENA Galleries & Gardens and Robert Mars to celebrate his new solo exhibition, ARTIFACTS.
