We are really honored to have recently been invited to be in a group exhibit at the FGCU Library, Archives & Special Collections. Several pieces from our 'FinFolk' collection will be included in a wonderful show about all things that matter to Florida water.
The opening reception, open to all, takes place on
Thursday, Jan. 24, 2019 from 5:30 - 7:30.
Here's a bit of info from their press release: 
"Southwest Florida has a unique environmental ecosystem consisting of preserves, sanctuaries, swamps, estuaries, and coastlines. Most notably, the Everglades National Park and Gulf of Mexico reside in Southwest Florida’s backyard. Water is the life blood of the region, allowing a spectacular array of flora and fauna to flourish here. UNDERCURRENT: Florida Artists & Water, features local artists and their reflections on the waters of Southwest Florida. The variety of mediums, textures and materials present in the exhibition mirror the eclectic nature of Florida’s wildlife, as well as its human inhabitants.
The artists’ works in UNDERCURRENT highlight the deep connection between the people of Southwest Florida and the local water ecosystem, an ecosystem that faces an uncertain future. The region is enduring a historically unprecedented ecological disaster in the form of a blue-green algae and red tide bloom spreading through our inland canals and coastal waters. High concentrations of red tide (Karenia brevis) are toxic to fish, marine mammals, and birds. The recurring fresh water discharges from Lake Okeechobee create a deadly environment for our marine life, fueling the blooms and threatening the delicate water ecosystems of the region. The FGCU Library humbly thanks the contributing artists for helping to bring awareness to the Southwest Florida water ecosystem and the current environmental threats in the region.
Featured artists include Charles Brown, Mary Sullivan Voytek, Amber Frank, Jeff and Dale Ocasio, Andrew Owen, and Ran Adler."
