Who’s on Display
Belina Buisson Wright
Belina Buisson-Wright, is a native Floridian of Haitian American descent. Wright went college to become a teacher and taught for 8 years until she began to home school her children. During her years of classroom instruction, she began experimenting with acrylic paints. Wright is a self-taught artist that believes her ability to paint is a God given gift. She is fascinated by the music, art, clothing and customs of various cultures.
Her art is strongly influenced by her Haitian and African-American heritage. She tries to capture its vibrancy in her work. She enjoys painting people in their element-from the extreme to the simple and mundane whether it’s laughing, dancing, singing or working. Her Haitian influenced pieces usually depict tall, stylized women holding baskets and most recently, women dancing. Wright believes there is a grace, strength and beauty in these women. She has participated in various traditional and online exhibitions nationally and internationally. She resides in Central Florida with her husband, Stephen and their four children.
Master Artist Cecil Bernard
Cecil Bernard is one of the most passionate and exciting abstract artist in the contemporary art world. His work is contained in some of the most prestigious art collections around the globe while his reputation as the "Artist to the Stars" (Dallas Morning News, September 1990) grows daily.
Bernard was born in Austin, Texas, and started drawing at the age of six. He moved to Dallas when he was ten years old, living there until adulthood. He started selling art while in high school and later while attending Southwestern Adventist University in Keene, Texas.
Bernard's acrylic abstracts, pastel paintings and ink sketches exhibit great power. "Passion, color, texture, spontaneity, and balance are the core of my acrylic abstract paintings and contemporary jazz and music pieces," says Bernard. "Inspired by the struggle, humor and spirituality in the balance of life, I paint - usually without a brush." Bernard's unique method of painting - often using his hands, cardboard or rags - has become one of his trademarks. "I pour the paint, I throw it, I drop it and I spray it," he says. "Colors have value in every painting, and color itself is spiritual, if arranged in a manner that speaks to the soul and stirs the passion of the beholder. Every painting tells a story. No matter how simple, no matter how complex."
