The Natural Pastels Art Exhibit
By Angela Betancourt
This Sunday January 11th from 11am- 4pm, The Futernick Family Art Gallery is celebrating the launch of the Natural Pastels Art Exhibit with an opening reception and brunch. The Natural Pastels Art Exhibit will feature work by more than ten South Florida artists that have used soft pastels in their creations.
Ranging in levels of experience and individual styles, the artists will showcase a variety of pieces that include depictions of landscapes, animals, and still lifes. Guests will have the opportunity to explore how versatile and beautiful this art form can be.
“The soft pastels were created by a group that works together at Fairchild Tropical Botanical Garden. We admire and learn from each other as we use this challenging but vibrant medium. As a member of the class, it’s quite a treat to be exhibiting with the others, in addition to fulfilling my usual role of putting on exhibits in the Futernick Family Art Gallery,” said Suzy Breitner, Visual Arts and Museum Director. “Particularly gratifying for all of us is the opportunity to dedicate this show to a talented and valued class member, Terrie Newman, who sadly passed away a few months ago. Her work will be prominently displayed.”
The exhibit is free and will run through February 21, 2015. All art exhibits may be viewed during programs held in the Futernick Family Gallery and by special appointment. For more information call
