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.
