In this episode, Mark Baratto sits down with Nance Frank, the director of the Gallery on Greene.

This is perfect for all you Key West history buffs out there.  We dive deep into the history of Key West homes, the people and the art.

We recorded this episode in the fall, before COVID-19 lockdown happened.  I am pleased to say that The Gallery on Green is fully operational and taking visitors on a daily basis.

More on The Gallery on Greene

The Gallery on Greene has consistently fomented curatorial and artistic practice through ambitious exhibitions programs, created in close collaboration with its artists with museums from New York, MCNY, AFAM, SSSM to Havana’s National Museum of Fine Art.

Our philosophy: The style pendulum swung away from overly furnished and cluttered interiors some time ago. The immediate reaction was one of clinical simplicity. We are now experiencing a hugely exciting period where key pieces of fine art or antiques are used to a stunning effect within contemporary interiors. This juxtaposition makes for an emerging sophisticated style, next to no other. 

Now we can appreciate the best of both worlds.

With the growing sophistication of the general public, people are looking more into expressing themselves at home than ever before. Comfort, style, quality, beauty, technology and investment are all keywords mentioned when furnishing and decorating a new home.

The Gallery on Greene is ideally positioned to advise on the acquisition of such integral items to enhance your living space and daily lives.

In this episode, Mark Baratto sits down with Master Framer, Jeff Rodriguez.

Jeff is the co-owner of DE LA Gallery, located in Key West, FL and Charleston, SC, AND the co-owner of Art Warehouse, located in Key West.

I visited Jeff at his Key West gallery where we talked about his wildly talented partner, photographer/artist Jorge de la Torriente, how they met, and how they turned a dream into a thriving business.

This episode was recorded on the 3rd of March, right before the shut down for COVID-19 began.

NOTE – Jeff and I recorded an intro on this episode that was recorded on Thursday, April 30th, to talk about the status of both galleries and how he is offering additional sources of income for digital photographers out there.

WHO WE ARE

We’re photographer/artist Jorge de la Torriente and master framer Jeffrey Rodriguez. We started out as friends and now we are family.

We specialize in large format coastal, seaside, & landscape fine art photography.

We print and frame all of the images in-house, where Jorge’s singular artistic vision + Jeffrey’s precision, expert craftsmanship and attention to detail combine to make each piece one of a kind. 

We specialize in serving new and seasoned collectors looking for one-of-a-kind, museum-quality, and large format fine art photography through our Key West gallery and our online home.

WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT

We’re not a collective run by artists or a traditional art gallery. As a self-represented artist with my own gallery, you’ll enjoy a tailored buying experience because you are buying directly from the artist.

We get to know our collectors individually. Which allows us to provide a highly customized art buying experience, that is designed to meet your specific needs as a collector. We use the latest in printing, framing techniques and technology to produce everything in house. This allows us to produce a museum quality finished piece that very few can reproduce. Our finished pieces are all individually made to order, and we offer lots of flexibility in customizing the art to fit your need.

If you’re in town, we invite you to visit us in person. We’re located across from the historic La Concha Hotel on Duval St. Come in, relax and enjoy the calming visions of the Florida Keys and surrounding areas. Let us help you find that special piece that’s meant to be in your collection.

If you’re shopping with us online, we invite you to explore our site. Browse limited edition collections or sign up for our newsletter to keep up with the latest DE LA Gallery news.
