Michael Flohr Show “A Moment in Time” at EC Seaport Village Gallery

Attendees had more than just a moment this weekend to speak with Michael Flohr about his newest collection, “A Moment in Time.” He hosted the three-day exhibition June 20-22 at EC Seaport Village Gallery where collectors got a first look at the collection of original oil paintings inspired by the artist’s travels and observations. Unveiled for the first time, Michael Flohr also presented his newest fine art limited edition painting, Romance in the Rain. The painting depicts a couple walking through the rain in Piazza Navona in Rome. Through Flohr’s vague brush strokes, he is able to capture the sparkling reflections and he transports viewers to the Piazza, as if they’re right there watching the couple. He says he sometimes takes pictures of places but generally sketches the setting and takes notes for later. He then goes into the studio to put his contemporary impressionism into practice. “My wife always says I have greedy eyes because once I see something I can’t let it go. I have to get back in the studio and paint it,” Flohr told the audience on Saturday.

Guests mingled over complimentary wine, hors d’oeuvres and desserts. The collection captured snapshots of cities throughout the world, including Austin, San Diego, New Orleans, Paris and San Francisco and offered collectors a taste of travel without ever leaving home. He draws inspiration from “little snapshots, kind of like when you’re walking down the streets, you see something that just sparks out,” said Flohr. This was his 12th exhibition for EC Gallery.  He met gallery owner Ruth-Ann Thorn while sketching at a cafe next to one of her past galleries in La Jolla. “It was serendipitous, I was sketching next door to her gallery in La jolla 12 years ago,” said Flohr. “History was made!” added Thorn. A lot has happened in the last 12 years. Flohr started a family and painted countless masterpieces. Three generations of the Flohr family attended the gallery opening to offer their support for the master artist. The family-friendly event ran all weekend and was featured on San Diego 6 News Saturday morning.
