About the Exhibition 
The ArtsPark at Young Circle Gallery is set to open a unique exhibition titled Synapse featuring artist Jose Martinez Vanegas. Synapse opens January 23 and will be on display until March 17, 2017. An artist’s reception will be held on Saturday, February 18th from 6:00 to 10:00 pm in the Gallery. All are welcome to attend, admission is free.

Synapse is inspired by the mythology and architecture influence of other times. By using a theme as old as mythology for inspiration, and adding his special touches, Martinez Vanegas achieves an updated, new vision. He quotes celebrated composer Giuseppe Verdi: "Tornate all'antico e sarà un progresso," which means "Let us turn to the past; that will be progress.” 

The artist’s fine and delicate drawings and paintings feature great artistic detail and contemporary beauty. The technique of his art is mainly color pencil on paperboard and acrylic on canvas. Martinez Vanegas seeks to have those who  view his art  “feel inspirational impulses” while admiring the secret meaning and story transmitted through his  works.

About the Exhibition

Kirsten Hines is a wildlife photographer and nature writer based in South Florida. Growing up in the Philippines, she watched metropolitan Manila engulf coastal villages and rural landscapes. As the last brilliantly colored bird from her yard fell to a stranger’s slingshot, her love of nature transformed into a passion for environmental conservation. Drawing from this inspiration and from her education as a biologist, Kirsten’s photography highlights nature and wildlife around the world. Her photographic collections include Nature in Abstract, Nature and Travel, and South Florida Birds and Gardens.

South Florida Birds and Gardens is on exhibit in the Hollywood City Hall, and features a selection of images from her award-winning books, Birds of Fairchild and Attracting Birds to South Florida Gardens. Her goal with this collection is to provide an intimate view of the birds and plants that might be found in a South Florida garden, to connect South Floridians to their non-human neighbors, and to inspire them toward bird-friendly landscaping. South Florida can be “re-greened”, one yard at a time.

Kirsten has presented solo exhibitions at multiple venues in South Florida. Her photographs have also appeared in publications such as Shutterbug and Expressions magazines and the Audubon website. She has received various awards and recognitions, including Curator’s Choice at the Endangered Art and Photography Exhibition and inclusion in both national and international nature photography showcases such as that hosted by the North American Nature Photography Association.
