GULFPORT, FL –Artist and entrepreneur Deserie R. Valloreo announced via her new namesake art gallery’s social media outlets the opening of DRV Fine Art Studios & Gallery (DRV Gallery), taking place on Thursday, October 6th with a yoga session designed specifically for artists taught by renowned Yoga Instructor Ruben Vasquez.
‘Yoga for Artists’ takes place from 9:30-10:30am, followed at 11am by the public opening of the Gallery. Registration is required for the yoga session and can be completed at tinyurl.com/4mdmyfwj.
“I am beyond excited to launch the opening of my gallery in Gulfport”, said Valloreo. “The art scene here is exploding and I am very fortunate to be a part of it. The entire town embraces creativity and art is everywhere you look in Gulfport.”
Prior to pursuing a career in art, Valloreo was known in the community for her health and wellness products and services including herbal formulas, workshops, yoga and corporate wellness programs.
Said Valloreo: “Drawing on my health and wellness background, it is fulfilling to help artists of all kinds feel their best so they can create their best works. With this in mind, we are hosting “Yoga for Artists” on the morning of our opening to the public.”
DRV Gallery features the acrylic paintings of Valloreo as well as fine art works by seven of the region’s most innovative artists, including painters Rhonda Care, Paula Roy, Curtis Whitman and Seven C Music owner Dave Hosler, jeweler & sculptor Doug D’Souza, along with multi award-winning book excavation artist Ted Wray. Visiting artists will be featured on a rotating basis.
“To keep things fresh, DRV Gallery will also host guest artist shows, which will be open to 2D and 3D artists,” said Valloreo. “We are working on scheduling our first guest artist show now.”
James Briggs, owner of creative arts firm Carroway + Rose and Vice-President of the Gulfport Merchants Chamber of Commerce, says the opening signals the town’s continued emergence on the regional arts scene: “The caliber of artists that Deserie has assembled is a reflection of the strength of Gulfport’s continued emergence as an arts destination. Her opening on the 6this the beginning of a great month for the arts in Gulfport.”
