Celebrate Art 2017 Cultural Center at Ponte Vedra Beach

Whispered Nocturne
Karen F. Rose
Standing on the beach looking at the Atlantic ocean from a Florida shore you'll feel an amazing quiet that envelopes you. The sun setting in the west lightly paints the faintest colors in eastern sky.
The noise of the day fades and there is just the whispered night.
Whispered Nocturne is part of atmospheric abstracts that I have been pursuing in my new studio.

You are invited to The Cultural Center at Ponte Vedra Beach's Celebrate Art 2017 to see this Whispered NocturneEventide and In Stillness.  And art by 30 other amazingly talented artists. The exhibit runs from Jan 12, 2017 to February 18, 2017. The Cultural Center is open from 9 to 5 Monday to Friday. Sat 10 to 4. After hour appointments are available and their phone number is 904 280 0614. The Center is located at 50 Executive Way just off A1A in Ponte Vedra Beach, FL.

The Village Arts Framing Gallery (next to Trasca & Co Eatery) also has an exhibit of my paintings. This delightful shop and gallery between Hilton Garden Inn and Chico's is the "Best Little Frame Shop in PVB for over 20 years".

Eventide is one of my three paintings accepted into The Cultural Center at Ponte Vedra Beach's juried member art show.  The opening reception for the exhibit is Thursday, January 12, 2017 from 6 to 8 pm. The Celebrate Arts 2017 Exhibition runs through February 18th.

I'm truly honored that juror Steve Williams from the Florida Mining Gallery chose my work for the exhibit.

2016 has been eventful and for some a stressful year.  Eventide, In Stillness and Twilight Nocturne are atmospheric abstract paintings of peace and comfort.

Often at dawn or twilight I walk the beach and those moments of calm and peace are reflected in these paintings. If you attend the exhibit, I hope you'll send me a note and let me know if they resonate with you.
