Exquisite Porch at Morean Arts Center, February 2, 2016.
Dear Members,
I'm co-curating an exhibition with Amanda Cooper for the Morean Arts Center

The exhibition is titled Exquisite Porch, and it's billed as "A swampy, creepy-crawly spin on the Surrealist parlor game Exquisite Corpse, this exhibition focuses on the ground-dwelling wildlife of Florida. Artist, writer and independent curator D. Dominick Lombardi selected artists from the New York City area, while the Morean selected artists from Central Florida to play by creating drawings which reference things that go bump in the night. The resulting work raises awareness of the history of the game, its relevance to contemporary art, and celebrates the fauna of the Sunshine State."

Opening Reception: Saturday, March 12th, 5-9 pm. Free and open to the public.
Exhibition runs March 12 – May 1, 2016
