Join the Coral Springs Museum of Art for an artist reception featuring photographic artist Francie Bishop Good, Florida-based oil painter Dana Donaty, and the Everglades, while enjoying light refreshments as well as a cash wine and beer bar. Both exhibits will be on display from Saturday, June 2, 2018 through Saturday, August 25, 2018.
Francie Bishop Good: “Comus”Good and her mother graduated from the same high school in Allentown, Pennsylvania. After reflecting on photographs in her mother’s “Comus” yearbook, comparing them to those is her yearbook, she used her interpretations as a limitless source of material for this series. Good cross-pollinates painting, photography, drawing and collage with digital layering to create portraits in a series that is a staccato of media and a hybrid form of portraiture. In “Comus,” Good transforms high school yearbook pictures to a new reality.
Dana Donaty: “Profoundly Playful – A Survey of Work”Widely recognized for her provocative canvases with unusual narrative, Donaty’s unmistakable satirical lexicon is a perfect collision of reality and fantasy, psychological flirtation and a super-charged palette that is like a party about to get thoroughly out of control.
Forever Broward: “ForEver Glades – en plein air”The Coral Springs Museum of Art, in partnership with the Community Foundation of Broward, takes a look at life west of Interstate 95 with a delightful collection of paintings created en plein air (painted outdoors) on the edge of the Everglades at Markham Park. The “west meets east” program continues throughout the season with lectures and art in public places.
