BOYNTON BEACH, FL --- The public is invited to the February 13, 2014 artist’s reception for the “Elements” exhibition on the second floor of the Boynton Beach City Library, located at 208 South Seacrest Blvd. The reception will be held from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. with the artwork exhibited through May 2014.
The South Florida Eco System relies heavily on elements which surround our wildlife and impact our daily lives. From the aquifer to coastal waters, from everglades to beaches, from hurricanes to flash fires, we experience our environment in its natural habitat.
In this exhibit three artists Rolando Chang Barrero, Anthony Burks Sr. and Greg Matthews highlight the importance of the environmental conversation movement in South Florida. Collectively, the artists engaged in conversations and site visits with leaders of conservatory organizations throughout South Florida. They observed, documented and processed their images and experiences. The artists created three collaborative artworks which are the centerpiece of the Elements exhibition. Each artists contributed his medium to the collaborative artworks: Rolando, painting; Anthony, drawing; and Greg, photography. The collaborative artworks are not only esthetically pleasing but socially impactful. Each artist also has several individual artworks exhibited to demonstrate their medium and commitment to environmental issues.
This exhibition supports and builds upon the City of Boynton Beach’s green programs including Earthweek activities, Climate Action Plan, Galaxy E3 Elementary School, Seaborne Cove and its Old Dixie Eco Walk.
It is hoped is that visitors will have a deeper appreciation for the South Florida Eco Systems by experiencing this exhibition.
