SYD ENTEL GALLERIES lives up to their reputation of introducing world-class artists to the Tampa Bay area. The gallery is proud to welcome back renowned international artist Hessam Abrishami for one night only.  "Meet the Artist" Reception will be held on Saturday February 24 from 6-8PM and the show will continue through March 24. The show is open to the public. A master of vibrant colors, dynamic composition, and powerful expression Hessam has created his own unique style mixing classical and modern masters such as Da Vinci to Picasso. His paintings, filled with love and laughter, music and dance, are often described as a place where only our senses exist - the mood of a love story, a friendly gathering or birth of a child. The February show will feature an exciting new collection of original paintings, prints and bronze sculptures, all available for purchase. Hessam’s paintings can be found in international private collections and museums. He has been professionally contributing to the contemporary art scene for more than forty years; exhibiting in over 100 one-man gallery shows, over 25 international exhibitions and multiple museums exhibits.     [less-]

What is power2give.org?

It’s Tampa Bay’s new funding platform for local arts organizations! The concept is simple: Nonprofit organizations list needs for a specific project – for example, costumes for an upcoming show or instruments for undeserved children. Visitors to the site choose the project that matches their interests or touches their hearts and make a donation. The donation may be as little as $5 but that very important contribution supports local arts and enables creativity to flourish.
With tools and resources for both donors and cultural organizations, power2give.org makes posting, donating and promoting projects convenient and engaging. On power2give, all gifts are processed even if the project only receives partial funding. Unlike some crowd funding sites, you keep the money you raise whether you hit your target or not. Projects are listed on the site for a maximum of 90 days, or until they meet their financial goals.

Who can post projects?

You may post a project if:

  • You represent a 501(c)3 nonprofit arts and cultural organization located in Hillsborough or Pinellas Counties that has been registered as a charitable organization with the State of Florida for at least one year at the time of posting
  • You are authorized to post projects on behalf of the 501(c)3 that you represent
  • You hold a valid solicitation agreement in the State of Florida (If you are a professional solicitor, you are registered with the State of Florida and have a valid solicitation agreement with the 501(c)3 that you represent.)
  • You can provide a copy of the organization’s 2012 990 IRS Form

Project Requirements

  • Project funding will be used only for the intended purpose you state on the site
  • Projects posted to the site will only be related to arts and culture organizations
  • Project request amounts will not exceed $10,000.

Artist’s Free Critique

The purpose of Studio 1212 is to provide the opportunity to associate with other artists on an informal  basis; also, to promote group discussions, exhibit work as a group, support open workshops and information exchange regarding the arts. In addition, we endeavor to sponsor art education in our community.
