The Art of Penny Thurer

Dessert Reception Tuesday, Oct. 16, 7:00pm before Book Festival event
in the Russell Theater. Gallery will be open after Author event.  


Miami artist Penny Thurer has a remarkable facility for several media including both pastels and acrylic. Her colorful works depicting gardens and landscapes lend themselves to her skills. Penny earned a Masters in Fine Arts from Columbia University Teachers College, New York City and a Bachelor of Arts from Simmons College, Boston. She also studied at the Arts Students League. While in New York, she held art and photo editing positions at publishing companies Crowell-Collier McMillan and Harcourt Brace Jovanivich. Since moving to Miami in 1972, Penny has worked for many cultural and civic organizations including The Dave and Mary Alper Jewish Community Center, where she was the Cultural and Fine Arts Director, Miami City Ballet and as the author liaison at Miami Book Fair. She is currently on the Executive Board of the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts. Since retiring, Penny has returned to her first love, painting. She has found pastels to be the medium that best reflects the vibrancy of Florida’s tropical paradise. Her work is in private and corporate collections and has been shown in The Barbara Green Gallery.

Paintings by Tara Funk Grim 

Painting en plein air, Tara Funk Grim captures the essence of her surroundings based on what she is feeling and seeing. Pushing colors and exaggerating natural movements, her passion for the visual world and the world of imagination has led to both plein air painting and creative exploration in the studio. Ms. Grim’s mixed media
work, weaving layers of acrylic and collage, has evolved from experience, intuition, and exploration. Each painting is an adventure and journey into the unknown. Beginning an art career painting seasonal themeson the Atlantic City boardwalk store windows, she continued her education with a BA fromChestnut Hill College and teacher certification from Kutztown University. As a signature member of the Pennsylvania Watercolor Society, she has exhibited widely, receiving many awards.
