Pamela for Donna's Article

If you do not know Pamela Ramey Tatum, I am so delighted to introduce you! If you do, you already know that you are quite a fortunate person. Here come the adjectives: Pamela is a smart, funny, talented, loving, enthusiastic, complimentary, beautiful, diverse, unique soul.

If you follow her on Facebook, you know how important family is to her. So many of her posts are devoted to the memories of loved ones as well as the celebration of those still alive.  And her husband! Goodness gracious, that man is loved! He must know how incredibly blessed he is to be showered with such adoration and I’m sure he is just as head over heels for her.

Fu Fish - Hettel

April Exhibition Opening in The Founders Gallery Transcendental Shoals by David Christian Hettel. Can you find order and structure under the sea? In the realm of darting schools of fish and swaying forests of kelp that might seem far-fetched. David Hettel would beg to differ. Hettel’s exhibition, Transcendental Shoals, skillfully marries the aquatic themes that have long captured his interest with his love of graphic design. The result is an intriguing ordering of the random. Opening from 4-7pm. Artist’s talk at 6pm. Exhibition through April 30.

March Exhibition Opening in The Founders Gallery Fish Tales, paintings by Byron Keith Byrd. Inspiration is a funny thing. It often arrives unexpectedly and pushes an artist in directions they may not expect. Byron Byrd frequently finds himself inspired by a sense of place. For most of 2022 he has been painting his trademark abstract impressionist creations in Port Orange. This proximity to the sea and our waterways inspired work that evoked the myths, legends and folklore of the great bodies of water, both ancient and contemporary. Byron paints both large and small, 2D and mixed media. You will also find some unique presentations of his work. Are you ready for the voyage?

February Exhibition Opening in The Founders Gallery 20x20x20, landscapes by Ken Bowser. Beyond the obvious and tragic health effects, the impacts of the Covid pandemic were varied and often unexpected. Our personal coping strategies drove many of those impacts. The desire to avoid the virus pushed many into isolation and others in the relative safety of the outdoors. For artists, that decision can alter the trajectory of a career. For Ken Bowser, that was the case. Ken had long been a writer and book illustrator, when he prepared to embark on a book tour in March 2020. The emergence of Covid profoundly altered Ken’s plans. He dusted off his plein air easel box, headed outside and threw himself into the creation of a range of landscape paintings.

Paintings by Denise Vezza Maggiore
Opening reception December 3 from 4-7pm
Exhibition through December 30

The creation of art is often a solitary process. While each piece ultimately results from the creative effort of a single artist, the artists of the Seminole County Printmakers actively collaborate and support one another. Sometimes Art is a team sport. “Under Pressure” of course hints at the process of creating the finished product by pressing paper onto to an inked, carved or etched substrate. Printmaking is a unique art form. Join us to see the efforts of the Seminole County Printmakers

Opening reception August 6 from 4-7pm
Exhibition through August 28

Another exhibition of abstract expressionism?  If you’ve seen one you’ve seen them all, right?  Don’t be so sure.  Liz Carey’s exhibition, The Embodied Experience, is most certainly abstract expressionism but she’s found a fresh take on the style.  Liz says her pieces have a lot to say, being simultaneously big and powerful but soothing and peaceful.  We’d say the pieces feel in motion.  There’s an energy about them that is transcendent.  Liz brings the use of negative space into her work in a way we’ve not seen before.  This body of work demands to be seen.
