October Featured Artists at The Art Gallery of Viera Dij & Rudy Pacarro

In addition to the Brush with Success Show, The Art Gallery of Viera is proud to announce Rudy and Dij Pacarro as our Featured Artists this month.  Rudy and Dij Pacarro have managed to keep a little space in their home for living (the master bedroom and bath), but almost every inch is dedicated art studio space. Rudy creates his amazing raku pottery in their extra bathroom, glazes it on the dining room table, and fires it in the garage. He also manages to squeeze in space for his watercolor painting - sometimes by the window in the great room, often at the dining table. Dij has a whole room dedicated to her quilt art, but that's not enough for her. She has taken over half of the den with mixed media supplies and work space, and uses the laundry room and garage to create her hand dyed clothing. When company comes, there's a mad scramble to find space.

Most of their work is influenced by their travels. They've brought home ideas and photographs from Turkey, Spain, Eastern Europe, Central America, and Hawaii, which is their original home. While Rudy expresses his inspiration through clay, adding embellishments and colors reminiscent of the areas they've visited, Dij creates fabric scenes depicting some of the sights they've seen.

Although Rudy and Dij have very different styles, and choose to work individually, there is often a hint of similar inspiration. They encourage and challenge each other and enjoy the fun of sharing their art.  Their amazing work is featured through the end of October.  For more information contact the gallery at (321) 504-4343 or
