Palm Beach County artists are uniquely positioned to observe the effects of climate disruption, as Florida is on the front lines of sea level rise, climbing temperatures, catastrophic storms, devastation of coral reefs, and disappearing seagrasses. This exhibition, with more than 40 works by 15 exceptional artists, will explore the effects of climate disruption and engage audiences in considering topics such as endangered species, shrinking habitats, pollution, and coastal resiliency. Opportunities to learn about these important topics through family-friendly educational programming produced by Cox Science Center and Aquarium will be included in the exhibition.

Molly Aubry: Dark Luminosity

Exhibition: January 27 – March 11, 2023
Artist Reception: Saturday, February 4, 3-5 p.m. Click to RSVP.

In her first solo exhibition, Molly Aubry combines painterly and digital processes to explore entangled perceptual worlds. She uses pigments, graphite, digital collage, and spray paint to create kaleidoscopic illusions that blend the line between what’s real and imagined. Referencing light, water, otherworldly planets, and living cells, these mixed-media works invite the viewer to see themselves as part of an interconnected universe and ponder their space within.

Rubicon, 2022; Watercolor, acrylic, gouache; 14 x 22.5 inches

Serge Strosberg: Veni, Vidi, Vici

January 6 – February 18, 2023

American captains of industry and commerce during the Gilded Age considered themselves to be heirs of a great Western cultural lineage, with particular interest in honoring and replicating the cultures and societies established by the early Greeks, the Roman Empire, and Europeans, particularly Venetians, during the Renaissance. Serge Strosberg has created a series of allegorical paintings inspired by vintage photographs provided by the Henry Morrison Flagler Museum and has reimagined the subjects in Palm Beach today. Individuals are costumed in contemporary vibrant patterns and colors, and a frieze composed of train tracks borders the works. Descriptions of the historical images were written by Palm Beach historian Rick Rose.
