July 22, 2014 (FPRC) -- In May and June of 2014, Artist John Ross Palmer took his annual international trip to create a unique 11-piece art series in a new global destination. The 2014 trip, underwritten by his elite First Class Club, was inspired by a mode of transportation—with the winning FCC essay written by inaugural FCC Member Judy Lindsay on the automobile. Palmer and his husband Ryan Lindsay selected to take a whirlwind road trip from Paris, France to Florence, Italy with Palmer then creating the historic series in Nice, France.
This year the destination of choice was inspired by two major life events that are highly personal to the Artist. First, Lindsay was asked to be the Godfather of Louise Sprotti and be present at her Christening in Breuillet, France on June 1, 2014. Second, Palmer and Lindsay were invited to the wedding of Lauren Clark to Ollie Miles on June 7, 2014 in Tuscany, Italy. These beautiful, highly-romanticized events would anchor their journey, provide fascinating sights along the way and give breathtaking inspiration for Palmer’s art series.
Palmer arrived in Paris on Wednesday, May 28th. He spent three nights in Paris before two nights in Breuillet, one night in Lyon, two nights in Cannes (with a daytrip to Monaco and Eze), one night in Florence and then two nights in Tuscany before settling in Nice to create the 11-piece Nice 2014 art series. This international series by Palmer is truly unique because it focuses on a plethora of destinations, sights and events on their road trip…and not the city in which it was created, Nice.
The first unveiling will be on the evening of Friday, July 25, 2014 and is an invitation-only VIP cocktail reception for a select number of collectors and friends. The casual, public unveiling will be held the afternoon of July 27, 2014. Both events will occur at the John Palmer Art Gallery and Studio, 1218 Heights Boulevard in the Historic Houston Heights.
