Master Sculptor Nilda Comas Lastest News -- posted by Florida Fine Art Blog

I have had the honor of visiting Nilda in Pietrasanta, Italy, one of the truly magical places in the world.  Being in Italy with Nilda was an art experience that tops the list.  Her generosity, knowledge and enthusiasm made for an unforgettable time.  Nilda has an arts studio in Fort Lauderdale where she works and teaches.  I highly recommend checking out her studio or even take a class.  Nilda teaches all ages!  GL

"Tribute to the Masters Art Exhibit" at The Gateway Art Gallery/ Gateway Bank of Central Florida  at 1632 East Silver Springs Blvd. in Ocala is open to the public from 10 to 5 Monday thru Friday.  On Friday May7th a group of members and guests from the Appleton Museum in Ocala will tour the exhibition. Nilda is showing eleven sculptures some in marble bronze or terracotta. There are several portraits on loan from collectors and a few life size pieces.

Last week Nilda attended the opening of the Merrit Center for the Art of Joseph Sheppard at The University of Maryland in Baltimore. Joseph Sheppard is a highly acclaimed painter and sculptor from Maryland. Six years ago Joseph Sheppard formed The Legacy Group by inviting 11 of his former students to join him for 3 years on a traveling exhibition held at many museums in the US. Nilda is one of the former students and part of The Legacy after which she named her studio in Ft. Lauderdale. In this photo Nilda (right) joined other members Nina Akamu (left) and Evan Wilson (middle) in Baltimore at the inauguration of the museum.

Last month while in Italy Nilda found a piece of Statuario marble from Carrara for sculpting a new piece, a religious sculpture of the head of Christ. She will be sculpting this piece in marble in the summer when she returns to Italy.  Below is the model sculpted by Nilda.

The Atelier classes at The Legacy Art Studio in Ft. Lauderdale continue each Wed, Thu,and Sunday afternoon from 2 to 5. Classes are offered in Painting, Drawing, Sculpture for all  levels of instruction.. Life Drawing Sessions continue each Sat from 3 to 6.
