Sunflower Beach will host its 1st Exhibit Opening featuring works by local artist Steve Davis. To showcase and connect with the active artist community of Port Aransas and surrounding areas, Sunflower Beach will open a portion of its beautiful 2,500 square foot Sales Gallery to be used as a rotating gallery of local artists. From 4 PM – 6 PM on April 22nd, delicious bites from Lisabella’s, carefully selected wines, and live Flamenco guitar music by Lela Caldwell will add to the day’s festivities.
About the Artist: Steve Davis
In 1994, Steve Davis gave up his businesses in San Antonio and moved to Houston to work at a contemporary art gallery. “Certain artists we represented broadened my horizon. They made me see things from a new perspective,” says Davis. This perspective led him to transform his love of time-weathered objects into works of art. He creates detailed pieces by combining found, antique objects with elements created by nature. In this exhibit, Davis suspends sand dollars inside found objects with transparent fishing line, allowing for beautiful and intricate patterns to emerge.
With an appreciation for art, architecture, and design, Sunflower Beach instantly recognized the beauty in Davis’ work and sought him out as a natural fit with the aesthetic of the community. Nestled among 50 acres of protected dune preserves and overlooking some of Texas’ most pristine beachfront along Mustang Island, the design of Sunflower Beach embraces the New Urbanism principles of walkability, quiet lanes, open green spaces, striking architecture, and in creating meaningful opportunities for social interactions for friends and family.
