MYTHICAL CREATURES AND FOLKLORE OF THE KEYS

Leif and Loren Ilvedson

Sanger Gallery 

Twin brothers Leif and Loren, collectively the Ivedson Brothers, create works celebrating the natural and imagined oddities that lurk in mangrove tunnels and in the backyards of conch cottages. The fantastical creatures and scenes they create are influenced by the nature, history and mythology of the Florida Keys.

ST. CROIX CARNIVAL

David Berg

XOJ Gallery 

Artist David Berg has been surrounded by carnival traditions his entire life: first as child soaking up the annual Christmas-season festival, then training to be a Moko Jumbie – one of the carnival’s dramatic, athletic high-stilt walkers – and finally as a photographer and historian, documenting the Moko Jumbies and other festival traditions

PSYCHEDELIC GARDENS II

Bria Ansara

Zabar Project Gallery 

Ansara creates works reminiscent of the popular psychedelic posters that adorned the walls of stoner basements in the 1970s, but with a modern, tropical twist. Works on paper feature indigenous plants and animals in a dayglo palette.
