South Florida’s top artists showcase colossal new works -- including giant paintings, towering textiles, massive sculptures, and photography and glassworks 36” in size or larger -- as ArtServe presents the “BIG: Big Bold Art” exhibition through Friday, November 4. A free gallery reception will be open to the public Thursday from 6 to 8 p.m. “Go ‘Big’ and don’t stay home because this is not one to miss,” said ArtServe president and CEO Jaye Abbate. “We challenged our artists to think big, and they have come through with works that amaze and inspire.” “BIG” also pays big dividends as on the night of the reception, all of the work on display will be available for purchase at 15% savings, with sales supporting the individual artists and local cultural programming. “To keep it fun, the BIG theme will play out into the evening’s entertainment and other arenas during the reception,” adds Abbate. The event will also give out an Online People’s Choice Award based on popular vote, which is taking place now through Wednesday at http://www.artserve.org/online-voting. Also featured will be Goldstein Schechter Koch CPAS & Wealth Advisors Gallery, filled with paintings and mixed media arts from Catherine Wichmann. ArtServe is located at 1350 E. Sunrise Blvd. in Fort Lauderdale, and admission to the gallery is free. Gallery hours are Monday to Friday from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. More information is available at www.artserve.org or 954-462-8190.
