Kapp, Carson_Going Bananas_Acrylic on Canvas_30x48

1st Saturday – April

April 6, 10:00 am - 7:00 pm

Gallery Opening Reception from 4-7pm: 

Continuing Exhibition in The Founders Gallery – Going Bananas: Big and Bold! paintings by Carson Kapp. The artist will have new paintings on display for April. “What do you want to do with your one wild and precious life?” Carson Kapp finds great inspiration from this quote by Mary Oliver. Carson’s paintings offer you a chance to return to a place when you were young. She invites you to let her big and bold creations embrace your own wild and precious life and just go bananas! This spirit is on full display in her exhibition. Through painting, Carson welcomes her inner child as a connection to her true spirit – one curly headed girl playing with the magic of color while exploring wonky, whimsical, energetic worlds of her imagination. In her former life Carson was an architect concerned with structure, safety, and function. Her work was commercial, massive in scale and complex. Now, she practices going bananas – painting wildly with the pure joy and wonder of life. Artist Talk 6pm. Exhibition through April 28. 

Art Connections 10am-7pm: an inside look at the work of more than 60 local artists. Talk to the artists and learn about the process of creating art. Explore two floors of art in one historic building in the heart of the New Smyrna Beach Arts District. 

Myrna the Shark Painting 11am-3pm: Hub artist Eliza Midgett will be painting “Myrna the Shark” – a life-size shark sculpture – in The Hub’s Lobby. Eliza was commissioned by the City of New Smyrna Beach to add another shark to the artistic shark presence in the community. Come by and say hello!
