Dunedin Fine Art Center’s Wild! Quintuplet Gallery Opening


Last night, the Dunedin Fine Art Center went WIILD!, unveiling 5 new exhibits in a single evening. The theme: Wild.  Wild can mean many things, encouraging a diverse collection of artwork including Carlton Ward Jr.’s Florida Wildlife Corridor photographs; paintings of wildlife; and the unusual, or wild, arrangements of objects into art.  The opening began with an artist talk in the Entel Family Gallery, which was hosting the Beauty & the Beasts Exhibit.  Each participating artist briefly introduced themselves and their work and then answered questions from the audience.

Following the Artist Talk, guests roamed about the gallery, viewing the artwork and interacting with the artists before spilling into the hall for music and refreshments.  Each gallery offered something different and interesting, and most of the pieces were from local artists.

This event was well-attended and well-enjoyed, especially by members of the local art community.  Different exhibits have different closing dates, but if you want to see all five, then plan your visit before October 18th.  Carlton Ward Jr.’s Florida WILD exhibit and the Beauty & the Beasts exhibit will be on display through December 23rd.
