ART IN THE GARDENS
Saturday, April 15; 5 – 7:30 p.m.
Meet the Artists at Pinecrest Gardens’ special three-gallery exhibition opening. Guests will start the gallery crawl in the new Inspiration Center with Annette Bonnier’s photography exhibition Reflections from the Shadows followed by a visit to the Underwater Florida exhibition by Xavier Cortada, and Artists Set the Table exhibition curated by hARTvest Project in our main entrance galleries. Visit www.pinecrestgardens.org/aig for tickets and information.
Reflections from The Shadows
Life during lockdown was a time of quiet introspection. A time to reflect. A time for solitude. Away from the bustling crowds, living life at a slower pace where we found time to stroll and meander through the long days. Isolation was the new normal that prompted photographer Annette Bonnier to look at the world with multi-layered eyes through her camera lens.
The “Underwater Florida” project showcases how Cortada traveled to 54 coastal city halls and placed a sign at each, depicting their respective elevations above sea level. By doing this at the very place where city officials make decisions about municipal budgets, as well as land use, planning and zoning, the artist made visible the threat that sea level rise poses to each city’s future tax base.
Artists Set the Table
An exciting excerpt from a private collection of more than 70 Cuban painters that have translated their work on to white bisque ceramic plates. This exhibition is curated by hARTvest Project in collaboration with the Museum of Contemporary Arts of the Americas and Fine Art Ceramics Center. During this event artists Natalia Giannangeli, Yamile Alvarez, Alissa Alfonso, Ivonne Ferrer and Evelyn Politzer will to present “tablescapes,” five unique art installations using dining tables in Cypress Hall.
