Modern Blossoms is a two-woman show featuring fine art by Laura Varich a floral abstract expressionist and Maria Burtis a west-coast contemporary icon.  This exhibition will also be featuring the highly coveted Julie Vos Spring collection available exclusively at 530 Burns Gallery for a special Pre-Mother’s Day Trunk Show. The combination of Varich & Burtis’s florals, paired with Julie Vos’s bright turquoise & coral spring colors are a trio destined for success.

Focusing heavily on muted florals, Laura Varich has developed a bridge between abstract art and impressionism through her inspiration of flowers. She is an artist who has built quite a name for herself on a national scale and has exhibited from Santa Fe to Sarasota and everywhere in between. Her latest series drifts away from her classical shades of green and focuses more on the movement of the florals she paints. Her technique involves painting in many layers that allude to her subject of flowers but strays away from impressionism with her loose brush strokes and soft swifts of color. Let her latest floral visions blossom in your home and fill it with the warmth and softness her work is known to bring. 

Maria Burtis is a contemporary artist known for her bright color palette. The petals she creates in her newest pieces are achieved by layering many multicolored brush strokes. Her floral allusions are known to leave their viewers with a sense of happiness and satisfaction. This floral series is produced exclusively for 530 Burns Gallery and strays away from the contemporary feel she leans toward. She highlights the colors and flowery scenes that are familiar throughout nature in Florida. Maria is an artist that is paving her path in the contemporary art world and her success is recognized nationally from the east coast to the west coast exhibiting all throughout California, and in Florida.

Julie Vos is name that is recognized all along the American East coast. Her jewelry can be spotted from the Hamptons, all the way into Florida’s Gulf. Creating six to eight collections every year, Julie Vos takes inspiration from her travels and New York City (the place where it is designed). Her highly successful line is designed and handcrafted to the standards of fine jewelry. The materials she uses consist of pearls and imported glass which is then handset in 24kt gold plating over nickel-free brass and sealed to prevent tarnish. The inspiration behind their new spring collection mimics the colors you see in the waters in Sarasota & Siesta Key. 530 Burns Gallery is hosting an exclusive Trunk Show with an expanded collection from their 2022 Spring Catalogue from April 1 – April 8.

All three artists have provided 530 Burns Gallery with an exclusive new series that showcases their latest pieces and the inspirations behind them. The contrast of contemporary styles chosen by each artist, and the impact they’ll bring by exhibiting together, will provide its viewers with a contemporary art experience unlike any other. All new works will be available once the show opens. Whether you’re a new or existing collector, jump into ”Modern Blossoms” with the 530 Burns team, and let them give you a glimpse of what it is like to be immersed into a golden contemporary floral experience.

530 Burns Gallery will be showcasing a new exhibition every FIRST FRIDAY of the month that includes the latest works from their roster of artists. Next month they will feature a group show art exhibition highlighting contemporary abstract pieces
