GARY MONROE: photographs

On display: March 20 - April 14

Artist Reception: Thursday, March 29 - 4 PM

Photographs, provides a glimpse into a number of communities that add to the character of this place and this mentality that we call Florida. From the Old World Jews who populated South Beach Miami, to Haitian resettlement camps, to the tourist visiting Disney, and the very landscapes that these cities and communities are built upon. Monroe has spent his life capturing little moments that reflect bigger ideas. The locations and characters in these photographs vary widely, and are taken from over 30 years worth of Monroe's photographic pursuits. However, each image was composed, captured, and is imprinted with Monroe's signature style.
