Robert Farber: Sarasota-to-Lakeland
Bona Fide Florida "the map is not the territory"
January 17 through February 28
We are pleased to present a collection of works by Robert Farber, Professor of Art at Ringling School of Art and Design. In this particular series, he has selected images from hundreds of photographs shot en–route between Sarasota and Lakeland. To these photographs he has added collage elements, drawing, and painting to create unique multi–media works of art that strive to accurately reflect the suburban experience of moving through the less–populated, undisturbed portions of Florida’s landscape. The selected images display his creative process.
Opening Reception: Friday, January 17 – 7 p.m.
