Welcome to

De Stijl Art Gallery

“Art is not what you see, but what you make others see.”  

Edgar Degas

The De Stijl Art Gallery is located in Ruskin, FL and is the newest and most unique gallery in the

South Hillsborough County art community.

This gallery is distinctive in its presence for it occupies what is a unique architectural building design commissioned by the Observer Dispatch Newspaper in 1976. In compliment this building has become a piece of art itself as it is painted in the style of Piet Mondrian commemorating the De Stijl Neo Plastic movement of 1920. The gallery will represent established and emerging local artists providing an opportunity to own a distinct piece of art.

In addition; one of the gallery’s mission points is to encourage art development which encompasses eco or "Green" elements versus just the normal techniques found in sculpture or painting.

FEATURED ARTISTS

20211018_145111_edited_edited.jpg

DAVE SMITH


Dave Smith is a self-taught artist working in watercolor and occasionally with pencil or ink. The vibrancy and translucency of watercolor has long fascinated him. As a Marine in the 1970’s Dave drew pictures of his F-4 Phantom and the local countryside while he was overseas. When he returned home; he took a watercolor workshop and has been working with watercolors ever since.

Dave has drawn and produced many lithographs as well as signed and numbered prints; selling these across the world. He had also produced a series of fifteen combat art prints and dozens of watercolors for a Saudi art gallery in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia during Desert Storm.

In the years that followed Dave has had several shows and currently living on the west coast of Florida. He is concentrating on the reflections of water, boats and wildlife.

RANDY M. SMITH

Randy is a native of Portland Oregon and attended The University of Oregon from 1965-1969, studying sculpture.  His passion is sculpting in all mediums. 
Copper brazing, welded sculptures, bronze cement and resin castings are exclusive creations done by Randy.  Each new work is conceptualized, developing an idea of what he wants to design and in which medium. He then carefully and painstakingly hand crafts his composition bringing his unique interpretation to the finished product.  Randy has shown and has been juried at many museums and his portfolio is included in many collections throughout the United States.  More recently, he has created original art in pen and ink and watercolor.  His latest folio features his colorful fish and birds.

 

Mid-Century Modern

Elementen van kunst in stijl. 

Art elements in style.

Mid-century modern (MCM) is an American design movement that was popular approximately from 1945 to 1969. The early seventies can also be considered MCM. It was a design movement in interior designs, products such as paintings, sculptures, glass and architecture of both businesses and homes. 

Stylish art elements for your home. High quality vintage pieces - home decor, lighting and furniture.


The De Stijl Art Gallery understands that artwork in and of itself is an element of one's home and environment; keeping with that the gallery is offering the elements of home decor, lighting and furniture which will compliment art available through the gallery. Stylish furniture and lighting are in keeping with the design styles of Mid-Century Modern. Simple, clean natural wood and designer quality desired by interior decorators. In essence, an artistic presentation is more than what is hung on the wall.

About Us

Hi we are Wolf and Cindy Spring are the owners of this new art gallery in Ruskin, FL. Our Gallery is unlike any you've seen and we are very excited to share with you the wonderful world of art. We are looking forward to meeting you. Please stop in and enjoy our interesting art gallery.

Some of you may be wondering why the style of paint décor on the outside of the building.

This is based on the art work of Piet Mondrian. Piet Mondrian is a Dutch painter best known for being one of the founders of the De Stijl (de style) which incorporated an art movement that worked around abstract works and the new art forms that were being introduced to the world in the early 20th century.

De Stijl is Dutch for "The Style", also known as Neoplasticism. It was a Dutch art movement founded in 1917 in Leiden, Amsterdam. De Stijl consisted of artists and architects. In a narrower sense, the term De Stijl is used to refer to a body of work from 1917 to 1931 founded in the Netherlands. Proponents of De Stijl advocated pure abstraction and universality by a reduction to the essentials of form and color. They simplified visual compositions to vertical and horizontal, using only black, white and primary colors.
