15 Year Anniversary


January 31 — April 26, 2015

2015 marks the fifth year of Florida Contemporary. Exploring traditional as well as innovative media, themes and approaches, the works included in the exhibition represent the most current trends in Florida’s artistic scene. From young emerging artists to well-established local figures, the selection invites audiences to experience a diversity of styles in the context of a multidisciplinary facility.

The works in this edition of Florida Contemporary evidence the vitality of the artistic production in the Sunshine State. From traditional subjects represented in innovative techniques to unexpected juxtapositions, Florida artists use their talents to explore current issues. Through a multiplicity of media—painting, drawing, sculpture, glass, textiles—this select group of artists articulates social and aesthetic commentaries about local as well as regional, global and personal topics. We invite audiences of all ages and backgrounds to enjoy this unique exhibition in which contemporary artists communicate with each other through their creations.

Florida Contemporary is generously underwritten by Bob and Terry Edwards and Friends of Art.
