Rick Worth, Sights Unseen: New Paintings

The perennial winner of “Best Artist” awards, Rick Worth is among the defining Key West artists of his generation, and likely the most productive. From his “shingle paintings”, which frame snippets of old Town architecture on fragments of metal roofs, to the dozens of murals bearing the signature all across the island, Worth is a fountain of creativity. For this not-to-be missed event, Worth fills the gallery with recent work and installation-size paintings.

Victoria Mata: Where You Are

Victoria’s work deals loosely in the language of landscape in order to reveal a more private emotional space, at times pushing entirely away from recognizable landmarks into the world of pure form and color. The pieces in this series are built up from many obscured layers to create a sensual terrain, enriched by a complex history.

Woman by Simone Lasswell & Janet Mueller

Lasswell’s ceramic torsos and Mueller’s semi-abstract paintings and mixed media sculptures serve as a dual meditation on spirituality, sensuality and the feminine. Mueller’s vibrant colors feels like they’re drawn from natural pigments, and her surfaces impacted by elemental forces: water, air, heat and gravity. Lasswell’s sculptures reveal a dancer’s awareness of her body in all of its earthy physicality.
