Collaboration: Boys to Men Art Expo is described as a show by a dozen male artists, age 16 through 70-something, from throughout the Palm Beach County area.
Hosted by A.T.B. Fine Artists and Designers in partnership with Bruce Helander and Paul Fisher, the exhibition will include work by Anthony Burks, Asif Hoque, producer and DJ Daniel Fortune, David German, Eduardo Mendieta, Henry Kaye, Jason JaFleu Fleurant, Jose Gaddi, Ray A. Burks, Renda Hitz Hearts, Steve Backhus and Steve Brouse who will exhibit paintings including "Faceballs" (pictured above).
"These paintings are a figment of my imagination," Brouse says in a statement about his work. "They come directly from my heart and often put me in a cool and calm place where I like to be. My whimsical and eclectic subject matter brings me to think that there can be better places full of color, peace, and harmony."

While there was a call to artists for the show, some exhibitors were recommended by gallerist Paul Fisher and some were simply artists that the Burks' have worked with and respect. In terms of medium, there was not a specific criteria. "The criteria is that all the artists are unique from one another, original and passionate about their craft," Anthony Burks says.
The show runs 6-10 p.m. July 28 in a space provided by Christian Angle Real Estate at 809 N. Dixie Highway in West Palm Beach.
