Diane Posnanski-Bragg is a part-time Gulfport resident of many years. Many of her pieces incorporate multiple types of glass that are cut and fused, then joined with copper that is textured or patinated.
GULFPORT - Domain Home Accessories & Gallery will host the opening of a new show of art work by three Florida artists on Saturday, Jan. 19, 6 to 10 p.m.

Featured artists are Diane Posnanski-Bragg, Daniel “Abraham” Flores and Jonathan Schork. The event will take place at “& Gallery,” 3129 Beach Blvd. S. in Gulfport. Each of the artists will be on hand to discuss their work and interact with visitors. Complimentary beverages and hors d’oeuvres will be offered.

“& Gallery” is the recent incarnation of the additional space acquired by Domain Home Accessories in September. Domain has been one of Gulfport’s most popular retail locations for more than 12 years, offering “functional art for the home” in its small, colorful quarters.

The addition of the new space as a dedicated gallery is intended to showcase the work of local and regional artists. The work of more than 40 artists is currently displayed and offered for sale at the Gallery.

The January opening will highlight large selections of the work by the three featured artists. Diane Posnanski-Bragg is a part-time Gulfport resident of many years whose work has been represented at Domain Home Accessories for most of its history. Many of her pieces incorporate multiple types of glass that are cut and fused, then joined with copper that is textured or patinated. She describes the combination as “the liquid beauty of glass with the malleable strength of metal.”

Daniel “Abraham” Flores is a Florida native with a fascination for the outdoors, where encounters with sun, sand, fish, birds and other animals inspire much of the subject matter for his art. His work is largely carved and sculpted on wood then layered with protective lacquered finishes.

After recently relocating from Key West, Jonathan Schork now makes his home in Gulfport, and has already contributed much to the local art scene. He is the co-founder of the Schork-Munsell Studios in Gulfport’s “Alley of the Arts.” In addition to forays into film, theater, photography and literature, he creates multi-media sculptures incorporating metal, plaster, found objects and much more that will be shown during the “& Gallery” display.

Additional art openings are planned for “& Gallery” every few weeks. For more information, call Mike McCue, 667-7531 or email mmccue@igc.org.
