Out My Backdoor exhibit
From December 1, 2014, though January 31, 2015, the 22nd Floor Gallery of the Florida State Capitol Building will feature the outstanding work of seven Brevard county visual artists in a Florida-themed exhibit entitled OUT MY BACKDOOR. Working within the theme but in a wide variety of media and styles, the artists have produced an exciting offering. Marilyn Cook brings us subtle, dream-like photographs; Nancy Baur Dillen carries us away with fantasy seascapes and imaginary characters in oil; Lydia Friedland produces large, exuberant textiles out of unlikely materials, Carol Garutti invites the viewer into intimate and colorful abstract digital compositions, Susan Martin immerses us in vibrant acrylic close ups of tropical foliage, Ellen Pavlakos calms us with the elegance of classically-styled bronzes, and Jean Thomas interprets the influences of water upon us with its colors, motion and changing appearance.
