About the Exhibit
This exhibit features artwork by local artist Jo-Ann Sanborn. Jo-Ann finds inspiration from local ecosystems and specifically, views of the Everglades. The paintings seen during this exhibit were completed with this showing in mind. More on Jo-Ann’s preparations for this show can be found on her website, where she is posting video-blogs on her progress: joannsanborn.com. On her website, Jo-Ann writes “The Everglades has a story to tell. The forms of the palms, water and skies are ancient and familiar—but their composition, light, and color are unique to each day. I do not want to merely recreate the images, but to integrate their specialness into moments of lasting memory. The horizontal and vertical aspects of the forms within the Everglades intrigue me.”
