January 2, 2008________ Wilton Manors, Florida, USA____Ellen Charapko Gallery presents a solo exhibition for Massachusetts, Contemporary Romanticist, Johniene Papandreas. Fixation will be on display from January 11 through February 3, 2008.

Dramatic, eerie and intimidating all describe paintings by Massachusetts artist, Johniene Papandreas. The softly blended casein on muslin canvases posses a unique, inner transparent light. Reaching back into art history, Papandreas captures stop action emotion that modern man can relate to within each of the personalities portrayed. The work of the great masters is revived with a modern twist, bringing models back to life in the 21st century. The works are nothing less than elegant in style, composition and execution. Papandreas’ work can be found in numerous national and international private and corporate collections. Her paintings were recently featured at the ASID Design Showcase at Greystone Mansion in Los Angeles.

The artist will be present for the opening reception on January 11th and again for an Art Walk reception on January 18th at 7 p.m.

Ellen Charapko Gallery is located at 2374 Wilton Drive in the heart of Wilton Manors, (Ft Lauderdale), Florida. For gallery hours and more information go online to www.ellencharapkogallery.com.
