If the giant golf tee sculpture outside PGA Commons isn’t enough to make golf fans turn into the plaza, an exhibit at Studio E Gallery will. The Palm Beach Gardens gallery has curated pieces in honor of The Honda Classic.
As the world’s best golfers hit the greens at PGA National Resort & Spa this month, art and golf fans alike will enjoy browsing and buying golf-themed paintings, sculptures, and mixed media works. Studio E Gallery even commissioned an artist to create pieces specifically for the event.
“This exhibit bridges the gap between our clients’ interests and the world of contemporary art. Having something like The Honda Classic in our backyard is a great way for us to help our clients find just the right thing to inspire their next hole-in-one!” said Studio E Gallery director Dan Cella.
Trip Park painted a series for the studio’s Honda Classic exhibit. Park’s depiction of clubs in well-worn bags will have the viewer longing for the camaraderie many find on the course. One piece entitled “Oh, Billy, Billy,” makes reference to the 1980 classic golf comedy Caddyshack.
Dan Meyer puts together a remarkable combination of materials to create fresh, provocative, and slightly quirky works of art. His series on golf tees includes “Top Five,” the 12-foot sculpture along PGA Boulevard, and smaller acrylic and wood creations worthy of any collection.
No matter whether you play poorly, recreationally, or professionally, the Studio E Gallery exhibit speaks to a love of this popular pastime. After a day of watching golf strokes, head down the fairway to PGA Commons to take in artistic strokes of genius.
