Artist David Schluss, left with Dr. Cliff Cunningham

There was a double celebration at The Blue Gallery in Ft. Lauderdale this week. The Gallery itself was celebrating the move to a new location, at 807 E Las Olas. And to make it special, one of their featured artists, Davis Schluss was there. His art is all about celebration.

I asked him about the theme of his large canvases on display, including Glowing Ensemble, one of several works that includes a musical instrument.

"It is about togetherness, music, celebration, dancing and colour talking. The figures in the painting talk and are saying 'we enjoy every minute of it'. The instrument itself is celebrating with them."

Schluss works in a combination of acrylic and oil, but instead of using a paintbrush, he uses only his hands.

"With the palm of my hands I can get a play of light that I could never achieve with a brush. I start with the abstract, and figures emerge."

He earned his at the University of Sir George Williams in Montreal, and in 1983 opened a studio in Ft. Lauderdale, where some of his work appears in the Museum of Modern Art.

The Blue Gallery also has a showroom on Atlantic Ave in Delray Beach. For more information visit their website:

Glowing Ensemble measures 72 x 48 and is priced at $27,000.
