Moonfish Bay Gallery & Artist Studio presents our fall show “By the Sea and Beyond”. The show runs through January 4th and features the original paintings of Cuban-American artist Ben Cardoso. Artist Reception will be held Saturday November 3, 2012 from 5:30pm – 8:00pm and the public is invited.
Ben’s vibrant colors and uplifting optimism reflect his memories of a childhood spent in Habana, Cuba. His creative spirit was nourished and expanded by extensive world travel, and as the years passed his paintings have come to reflect those places, people, and experiences in life that he has chosen to carry with him.
Moonfish Bay is also very pleased to have the work of Cortez’ Linda Molto. Linda’s hand pulled serigraphs are a sampling of memories from the last 30 years of her life in one of the few original old Florida areas left – the fishing village of Cortez. She creates all the screens and applies each color one at a time by hand, using up to as many as 30 different screens for more complicated images. Powerful and evocative, Linda’s serigraphs speak loudly of the small details of life in a Florida rarely seen these days.
“By the Sea and Beyond” also presents work by Richard Stewart, Wayne Dabinet, Lourdes Rosas-Rasdall, Char DiGennaro, JJ Watts, Lynne Parrish, and Deborah Dabinet.
