Dinner with the artist is Thursday, Nov. 10, at 6 p.m. The Boheme’s chef, Laurent Hollaender, who is something of a culinary artist himself, has planned a five-course dinner with wine pairings. Reservations are required for the private dinner. Cost is $125 per person plus tax and gratuity. Call 407-581-4801 to reserve a place.
Roy describes his style as “expressionist – colourist.” He works most frequently with oils and a palette knife, and in recent years his paintings have become larger and more densely colored.
Since the late 1980’s, a characteristic of his landscapes has been the presence of the sun; this followed a discovery that by putting the sun – initially a black sun – in the sky, it added light to the picture, and it has now come to form an important part of the composition of each work.
The Grand Bohemian Gallery will also host a reception for the artist on Wednesday, Nov. 9, from 6 to 8 p.m. Admission to the gallery reception is complimentary.
See below for Hollaender’s menu and the pairings. Should be a very expressive evening.
The Grand Bohemian is at 325 S. Orange Ave., Orlando. Entrance to the hotel’s porte cochère and valet parking is on Jefferson Street.
