Join Conservation Foundation of the Gulf Coast for a unique artist program and reception with photographer and artist Daniel R. Perales, on Tuesday, September 30, 5:30pm to 7:30pm. The photographs and multimedia exhibit entitled “NATURE in deMANd” showcases nature inspired multimedia works at Bay Preserve at Osprey. Images of natural Florida settings superimposed with figures address man’s connection to the natural world. This recent body of work was created during Conservation Foundation’s Artist in Residence program. The artist chose to illuminate the foundation’s mission of protecting the environmental character and natural integrity of Florida’s Gulf Coast. In collaboration with Fusion Dance Company and Sarasota Crew, over 30 different people were photographed to create an engaging, dynamic, and meaningful exhibit.
The cocktail reception with remarks by the artist will be held at the foundation’s headquarters at Bay Preserve at Osprey, 400 Palmetto Avenue in Osprey. RSVP to 941-918-2100 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Artwork is available for purchase. The exhibit runs through October 2014 and may be viewed during the hours of 9:00am to 4:00pm, Monday through Friday. A continuation of the show will be exhibited at the Westfield Square Mall in Sarasota.
