Southern Exposure: New Work Now
June 20 through August 16, 2014
Highlighting 17 emerging and mid-career Palm Beach County artists, the Cultural Council and Unit1 have collaborated to bring rising talents together for the summer exhibition: Southern Exposure: New Work Now. This convergence of curatorial styles has produced an exemplary cross-section of the current art world’s process, thought, method and stance. This exhibition will include experimental painting techniques, photography, site-specific installations as well as performance art. New Work Now represents a merging of scenes, a melding of styles and a continuation of community-driven support.

Figurative artwork has been practiced since man first began to draw primitively on stone. This exhibition examines the work of Yury Darashkevich, Jacques de Beaufort and Scherer/Ouporov who paint the human form in varying media and style. Working on canvas, wood and glass, each artist paints figurative images that are purely representational, fixed in an emotive state, or derived from a mythological construct.
Date: August 28, 2014 5:30 PM - 7:30 PM
Location: The Robert M. Montgomery, Jr. Building

Artists participating are Dennis Aufiery, Inna Babaeva, Steve Blackwood, Nicole Galluccio, Bertrand Jubert, Sandra Kuba, Deborah Meisel and Rose Shaw.

"Frank is a master of the watercolor medium. No one else is able to orchestrate gradations of color using the white of the paper as well as he, and always within ordinary meadow scenes, coastal views or whatever other bit of local landscape he decides to turn into art. He is the ultimate master at hiding all traces of the scaffolding upon which he erects his compositions. His entire oeuvre is directed at drawing our attention to the natural wonders that have enchanted him." Excerpt from the essay Translating the Principles of Nature: The Art of Richard Frank by George S. Bolge, CEO Museum of Art, Deland, Florida
