Accomplished, award-winning Montreal artist, Annemarie Masson, has been wooed by St. Petersburg, Florida and its new Central Florida Cultural Center status, and will be having her debut solo show, Transitions, on February 22nd at NOVA535. Her larger-than-life, vibrant art comes alive with nature and sea life. A must see for contemporary art lovers. —
“Annemarie’s subjects are always one with nature, with exhaled boldness and vivid color on canvas. Her compositions are structured, textured and her collages on canvas are a collection of handpicked elements of nature. Her works are expressionistic and at times almost humoristic, as is the artist, and these expressions are found on large scales that belong to the contemporary times in which we live today,” says B. Richer La Fleche, BFA Art History, BFA Studio Art of Concordia University Montreal.
Annemarie Masson chose NOVA535, for her show, Transitions, because of the ambiance that is unique to NOVA535. Located at 535 Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. St. N, in downtown St. Petersburg, NOVA provides the perfect atmosphere for the public to enjoy Annemarie’s art at its full glory and impact. Her show is a fusion of art and nightlife. For those wishing to attend, they can RSVP on Facebook at Annemarie Masson Art Transitions.
