The Beaches Museum & History Park is pleased to announce a Gallery Tour of the exhibit “Nature Reconstructed” by artist Lana Shuttleworth, Saturday, March 3, 11 a.m. until noon.
The Gallery Tour will be an intimate opportunity to immerse in Shuttleworth’s work as the artist herself discusses her technique and inspiration.
Her highly original art uses common plastic castoff materials, particularly traffic safety cones, to create lavish landscapes and sculptural figures that challenge the viewer’s comprehension. The Los Angeles Times said that in her work “you find yourself looking at these everyday plastic objects in a whole new way.”
Shuttleworth has exhibited throughout the West coast and the East coast, with reviews in the Los Angeles Times, Huffington Post, ArtScene, Florida Times-Union and nationwide Associated Press articles. Her artwork was also featured on the quiz show, Jeopardy. She was recently the cover artist for the prestigious art and literary journal, Cincinnati Review, which featured an eight-page spread of her work. The Beaches Museum is proud to showcase the thought-provoking work of this astonishing and talented artist.
More on Lana Shuttleworth can be found in the current edition of Arbus Magazine.
This event is free to Museum members with a suggested $5 donation for non-members. The exhibit will be on display February 9 – June 3. For more information please call 904-241-5657 or visit www.beachesmuseum.org.
