Sharon Goldman  | Reception: February 17 from 1 to 3 pm
As a native Floridian, Goldman has always been surrounded by water which plays a dominant role in her work. Reflections, movement, distortion, light and shadow are used to create her style of painterly realism which brings to life the spirit of Florida as she sees it.

Carron Wedlund | Reception: March 10 from 1 to 3 pm
“In my art, I want to share my vision, what I sense the warmth of the light or the chill in the air, the wetness of the atmosphere or a coastal breeze or the
textures of bark on a pine tree. Through my pastels, I want to share my personal impressions of being there.”
