“Spatterdock” by Jedda Wong

 

 

The botanical subjects were selected to mark the 100th anniversary in 2015 of the start of work on Tamiami Trail, a roadway begun in 1915 in Miami. Today it stretches across the Everglades from Miami to Naples and northward to Tampa, through areas that were largely wilderness a century ago. The exhibition’s more than 30 plant portraits depict species found then and now in multiple vegetation zones along the route. Due to human intervention and changes in water flow, some of the plants illustrated are rare or endangered, and their predominant locations may have shifted, but all persist in South Florida’s landscape.

 

 

 

“We invite our community to dive deep into the discerning talents of the artists capturing the essence of South Florida in plant form,” said Phyllis Korab, Cultural Affairs Director. “Far beyond ‘flower painting,’ botanical artists show the fascinating and soul-stirring intersection of science and art.”  Presented with support from the Florida Keys Council of the Arts, the exhibition is the result of the artists’ collaboration with Dr. Evelyn Gaiser of Florida International University, who is principal investigator for the local Florida Coastal Everglades Long Term Ecological Research program.
