FLAGLER BEACH, FL – On Saturday, August 6, St. Augustine mixed-media artist RoAnn Elias will be featured at Ocean Art Gallery in Flagler Beach from 6 to 9 pm during the Opening Reception of her month-long show “The Circle Game.”
Inspired by the captivating essence of circles and time, Elias emphasizes the shared emotions of joy and spiritualism, speaking to the ideas of birth and rebirth through her newest collection. As quoted by singing legend Joni Mitchell, “We are captive on the carousel of time (a circle). We can’t return, we can only look behind from where we came, and go round and round in the circle game.”
Gallery owner Frank Gromling said, “RoAnn is one of our newest and freshest artists. Known for her creative use of color, she loves to experiment with how paints react to a variety of textures and techniques.” He added that Elias’ artwork has a unique style that adds greatly to the gallery’s expansion into varied artistic dynamics.
Elias is well-known in the St. Augustine art community and her artwork hangs in many private and corporate collections throughout Florida. She has been an active art instructor in St. Augustine and is one of Ocean Art Gallery’s artists who conduct its sought-after Friday night Paint Parties.
“The Circle Game” art show runs from August 6 through August 31. Her opening reception on August 6 will be showcased attractively on both the corrugated metal-clad and white flat walls of the main gallery area. During the reception, RoAnn will meet with guests and explain her artistic technique. Light refreshments will be served and live music will be played. As normal for the gallery’s art opening receptions, this is a free event to which everyone is invited.
