ÆRENA Galleries & Gardens

Reflecting the heroic spirit of Teddy Roosevelt’s provocative “Man in the Arena” speech, ÆRENA Galleries & Gardens creates captivating spaces that celebrate the work of over one hundred emerging to internationally renowned artists who fearlessly express authenticity and integrity their work.

“It is not the critic who counts. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly.”
- Theodore Roosevelt

ÆRENA Galleries & Gardens’ uniquely beautiful art and design venues feature contemporary art and sculpture, as well as finely-edited collections of furnishings, objects and curiosities dating from the 18th century to the present.




What's Your Sign?

WHAT'S YOUR SIGN?
JAMES ARMSTRONG
JANUARY 15 - FEBRUARY 15, 2019

“Roads are a record of those who have gone before.
- Rebecca Solnit

ÆRENA Galleries & Gardens is delighted to bring you, What’s Your Sign? a showcase of James Armstrong’s latest works. Known for repurposing decommissioned freeway signs into serene California landscapes, Armstrong introduces a new exploration of various metals into his works. He begins each painting with a fully-realized composition before beginning to scrape away layers in a process he refers to as “reductive”.

Armstrong has been a painter full-time since 2004 and earned a BFA as well a graduate degree from the East Carolina University School of Art. Trained in the style of the classic California landscape painters, he paints, deconstructs, and repaints, cycling through the process over and over until the painting is finally completed; a perfect balance between perfection and destruction.

Join ÆRENA Galleries & Gardens as we celebrate James Armstrong’s showcase, What’s Your Sign?
