More About Karen Ledbetter Galleries
Karen Ledbetter GALLERIES started out of my love for art. Since I draw, paint and collect art myself, I am well aware of the need and desire to get exposure for ones art to the world. My passion is to see individuals, painters, artists, art teams, and families succeed in the special things they alone are called to do, to thrive, influence, be joyful and reach all of their own special potential.
Since my heart is always toward the artists, my focus is on marketing the artist to as many unique and individual markets as possible. In my opinion the possibilities are endless. We are continually researching and searching out international markets as well as those niche markets within the United States and the world that are unique to the artist. South Florida is becoming an influential art Mecca.
It’s the desire of the gallery to be an effective place of recognition and hub to the many faceted spokes in the promotion wheel.
Besides hosting gala events with special feature artists we are allowing the arts such as dance in the form of Jazz, Salsa, Tango exhibitions to have a place in the gallery. We are a showcase for artists that feature sculptures, art in mixed media, photo and digital photo art as well as the traditional oils, acrylic and watercolor pieces. My goal is to assist artists promote their art worldwide.
It has long been the dream of the gallery to open the doors to more of the arts, as witnessed by friends of the gallery attending the art shows we like to mix up the international flavor.
