VENTNOR, N.J. — The Holtzman Gallery, an upscale fine-art gallery in Ventnor, is hosting its third solo artist exhibition of the year, as the work of award-winning abstract artist Michael Waters (pictured left) will be on display through May 12.
On Saturday, April 19, guests will have the opportunity to meet Waters at an opening reception from 7-9pm at the Holtzman Gallery, located at 5301 Atlantic Avenue in Ventnor, just a few blocks south of Atlantic City. The artist will be on-hand to answer questions about his unique artistic perspective. Fine wine and light hors d’oeuvres will be served. The event is free and open to the public.
Born and raised in Atlantic City, Waters has won numerous awards throughout the region. His work has been exhibited by the Society of New Jersey Artists, the Toms River Artists Community, the Willingboro Arts Center, the Riverfront Renaissance Center for the Arts, and the Noyes Museum of Art in Galloway Township, where he is a signature artist member. He has also served on the board of the Ocean City Arts Center, Ocean City Fine Arts League, Atlantic City Arts Center and Ventnor Cultural Arts Center.
Water’s unique style (right) comes from within, as he allows his intuition and imagination to guide him through the creation process. His inspiration comes from his interest in symbolism, hieroglyphics and the depths of nature — underground and beneath the surface. He uses bold colors and varying textures which result in classic balance and harmony.
