When you see it, says Danielle Lanteigne, it all makes sense. Lanteigne is the owner of Leche Vitrines, Fort Lauderdales newest and most event-happy fine-arts gallery (3038 N. Federal Highway, Times Square Design Plaza, Building F, 2nd Floor), and she should know. Seldom does a week go by when Vitrines isnt unveiling a new exhibition or putting on an Art Walk in Wilton Manors, and Lanteignes tastes, as reflected in those events, tend toward the expansive, catholic, and spot-on. Shes talking about Scratching The Surface, the gallerys newest exhibition opening tonight and running through November 3.
The show features three artists Carla E. Reyes, Katiuska Gonzalez, and Lena Lucky working in mixed-media, using combinations of natural and man-made materials rocks, clay, grass, gauze, wood, furniture paste, popsicle sticks . . . Each artist has her own theme, but all are said to be interested in using artificial and natural components to engage the senses and, yknow, interpret the world. This may sound like the credo of a lot of other artists, but this aint them this is, very specifically, Carla, Katiuska, and Lena, together in a particular place at a particular time. Plus wine and cheese. Plus its free. So there you have it. Doors open at 7 p.m. Call 954-563-2993, or visit www.lechevitrinesart.com.
