2014 - Welcome to the New Year with New Artists, New Shows and New Artwork!

Florence Events Center: Ron Hildebrand and Claudia Ignatieff Featured in Gallery One

Ron Hildenbrand and Claudia Ignatieff will be the featured artists in Gallery One at the Florence Events Center during the month of October. An artist reception will be held during the Second Saturday Gallery Tour on Saturday, October 11, from 3 to 5 p.m. Refreshments will be served, and visitors will have a chance to visit the FRAA Autumn Art Festival, taking place the same day at the FEC. Raffle tickets will be on sale and the lucky winner of the drawing will go away with one of Hildenbrand’s oil paintings.

Hildenbrand’s artistic career began in 1961 at Chicago’s world famous American Academy of Art. He embarked on a highly successful career in commercial art, with time out for a four year tour of duty in the Air Force, serving as a graphic artist. Upon retiring to Florence, Hildenbrand creates a wide range of works dealing with a great variety of subjects. In all of his art, however, he portrays one intrinsic philosophy – a peaceful, quiet mood which is unmistakably “Hildenbrand.”

Claudia moved to Florence eight years ago, where she has been inspired by the beauty of the coastline, and the abundance of trees, wildlife, sunsets, and cloud formations. She has recently studied portrait painting, and her latest works are inspired by her love of animals. See Claudia's images below....
