Paper to Gold: A fifty Year Anniversary Exhibition
Curated by Karen Valdes, Gallery Director at Okalossa-Walton Community College. This exhibition cleverly redefines the "traditional anniversary symbols" that commemorate special occasions - such as paper (year 1); cotton (year 2); silver (year 25) to gold (year 50). Florida artists selected to participate will produce their rendition for each anniversary year in their own contemporary craft medium. This exhibiton is in celebration of Florida Craftsmen's 50 years as a statewide organization.
Florida Craftsmen's 50th Anniversary Exhibition
Celebrating 50 years of juried exhibitions featuring the highest caliber of work being produced at the time throughout the state, the DeLand Museum of Art will host this landmark exhibition, in the city where Florida Craftsmen began in 1952. In collaboration with Stetson University, a regional conference will coincide with the exhibition's opening featuring workshops and symposia with national craft leaders. Robert Ebendorf, former FC member and Professor of Art at Stetson (currently Distinguished Prof. Of Art at East Carolina Univ. in Greenville and internationally-recognized metalsmith) will act as juror. Exhibition catalog with essays.
Exhibition to travel statewide. Confirmed to date: The Leepa-Rattner Museum, Tarpon Springs, Fall 2003.
Lisa Williamson: The Never-Fading Garden
A solo exhibition of mixed media works by this New Smyrna Beach/Washington, DC artist. Her work combines bright, abstract imagery with familiar references to tropical flora and fauna through the use of painted dyes on cotton, three-dimensional wooden screens, and combinations of fiber and clay.
