The Dalí Museum’s Zodiac Membership Committee Hosts Annual event to Support Local Artists
St. Petersburg, FLA Nov 14, 2019 – On Wednesday, December 4th, 2019, The Dalí Museum’s Zodiac Committee will present Jeffrey A Romano as one of the 12 featured artists in “The Dalí Dozen, 12 emerging Artists to watch in 2019,” taking place at the Museum from 6-9pm.
This annual event celebrates and supports the vibrant Tampa Bay arts scene by hosting 12 up-and-coming artists in the region. Each artist was selected by the Zodiac Committee members and invited to display during the exclusive event. Museum members and guests are invited to the one-night event featuring photographers, oil painters, sculptors, burlesque performers, jewelers, glass artists and many more surprises.
The event will serve as the inaugural exhibition of “Tree Bones”. This collection of work, “Tree Bones”, with carbon ink and juniper trees is Romano’s newest effort in using non- traditional surfaces, moving drawing off flat paper surfaces. Romano harvests the trees from those that have died off and hand sands to a surface, which will accept the ink and feature the characteristics of the tree.
Members may also peruse the many new products in the Museum Store and receive a 25% discount during The Dali Dozen. Tickets to the event are $18 per person and available to Dalí Museum members & their guests on TheDali.org.
ABOUT (Jeffrey A Romano}
Romano’s work is centered on the importance of the pioneering individual in the liberation of art from tradition. Atwater Gallery: “Romano’s large intensely atmospheric images don’t quite fit in any art historical pigeonhole. His smaller scale ink drawings have a playful quality that may recall Jean Arp and Dada. More importantly they vibrate with integrity and artistic spirit.” Romano’s work has been exhibited at The Shellnut Gallery – Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and selected by the Dorsky Museum in its 2010 Art Along the Hudson exhibition.
“The artist, the pioneering individual, has done the most human action, he has created, and he has made something in his own image. From this image, a conversation is provoked, between the artist and the viewer, who searches in themselves meaning, interpretation, reason, and pattern”

ABOUT THE ZODIAC COMMITTEE
The Zodiac Membership Committee is an all-volunteer group that supports the mission of The Dalí Museum by building meaningful relationships with members, fostering new interest in the membership program, and helping to strengthen ties between the Museum, its members and the arts community. The original Zodiac Group was created in France in 1932 and consisted of 12 patrons who each sponsored Salvador Dalí for one month of the year. In exchange, patrons received a work of Dalí’s produced during that same month. In the spirit of these forward-thinking patrons, The Dalí’s Zodiac Membership Committee was formed in 1996. thedali.org/zodiacs
