About Gloria Avner

Gloria Avner
GLORIA AVNER has started a new series of playful sketches that sing with energy and creativity. Check them out on her new sketch gallery!

Ms. Avner draws, prints, and paints with passion. Her works have won prizes and ribbons in numerous art shows in South Florida and Coastal Maine. In Key Largo, FL, where she spends her winters painting and teaching, her artwork is on display in The Key Largo Art Gallery, Art Under the Oaks, Artemorada Gallery and private collections. Current works can also be seen at Bitton’s Bistro in Islamorada.

Ms. Avner’s recent work takes ancient Batik techniques and paints successive layers of ink, wax, and watercolor on delicate rice paper. Building vibrant color from lightest to darkest hues, the wax-resist holds the color to be preserved while the next layer is intensified. The final step, a waxing of the whole painting and crumpling of the entire piece before ironing out the wax, is daunting, but produces the mysterious quality in her backgrounds.

Ms. Avner has been influenced by life-long travels and interest in the art of indigenous people. She has worked in studios in Mexico, explored lost wax bronze casting at Bellas Artes in San Miguel d’Allende, painted in Sri Lanka and India, and studied at the John Campbell Folk School in North Carolina. Ms. Avner teaches painting, including batik technique, to people of all ages. For more information, commissions, classes, and prices of originals and prints, call 305 619 0216 or send message..
