Celebrating the Fine Artist within the Architect

Beneath the Surface – What Rests Inside an Architect?

Forré Fine Art Gallery, in conjunction with the Urban Land Institute (ULI), Tropic Magazine and ADEPT Public Relations, invites all interested in fine art and architecture to the “Beneath the Surface” – What Rests Inside an Architect? Architect/Artist exhibition. The group exhibit will showcase the artistic work of eight architects, Victor Alvarez, Steven Davis, Thorn Grafton, Jose Grinberg, Margi Nothard, Don Singer, Peter Stromberg and Nathan Van Deman. An Architect/Artist Reception will be held on Thursday, October 9, from 6 to 9:30 p.m. at the Forré Fine Art Gallery on Las Olas Boulevard in Fort Lauderdale. The exhibition will remain on display through October 22.

When creating pieces of work, it’s clear that architects are artists. The group show will focus on capturing the continuity and process of an architectural project as well as the various media that architects/fine artists use to express themselves in their day-to-day lives and the studio. The exhibition will include photographs, renderings and models of architects’ final projects as well as fine art from each using various media such as clay, paint, water color, photography and sculpture.

Artist/Architects selected include Steven Davis, partner at Davis Brody Bond, a leading architectural practice founded in New York and known for developing innovative solutions to complex design challenges. Davis is currently the designer of the National September 11 Museum at the World Trade Center. Joining him at the exhibit will be locally known founder of Singer Architects, Don Singer, and third generation South Florida architect, Thorn Grafton, Director of Sustainability Initiatives and preservation architect for Zyscovich Architects. Additionally, the work of Margi Nothard, President and Design Director of Glavovic Studio, will feature a merging of art, architecture and urban design in an innovative sustainable contemporary practice.
