Florida Weather 
Cici and Hyatt Brown Museum of Art
France Family Gallery
Open through 2019

Mastery of the palette and technique are required for painting the Florida atmosphere. Careful adjustments to color, specifically tinting – adding white – and shading – adding black, enhance the overall sense of the quality of the light at a particular time. The artist depicting Florida must have the knowledge to create an overall effect that unifies the image and convinces the viewer of the climatic conditions. Atmospheric perspective – perception of distance created by gradual lightening of color plus the blurring and diminished size of objects – is also used to great effect in Florida paintings because of the far vistas available in the State. 

Florida is nicknamed the “Sunshine State” with good reason. Daylight in the State has a greater intensity as measured in both quantity and quality than any state to the north. The intense sun, often reflected off sand or water, visually bleaches all colors. To represent the colors on canvas requires the addition of white to the palette. The palette is also tonally higher – the colors are purer – than, say, the palette with a more moderated spectrum used by the Dusseldorf School to portray scenes in Northern Germany. To accomplish this, the colors are highly tinted – white is used to lighten most of the palette. For the Florida landscape, the lessons from the American Hudson River and the Luminism Schools about painting the atmosphere are more germane. 

But then there is the other Florida light. Florida is known for weather that changes with uncanny speed. Devastating storms quickly roll onto the land from the surrounding oceans. Those tropical rains gray-out the light and shift the whole palette down in value, darker in hue and deeper in saturation.

Sun, rain, wind, clouds, storms and fog all play a part in what the artist sees and wants to capture. The annual weather cycles change the visual elements. Florida’s long topographic profile also adds to the great diversity of weather. The climate of the north and central parts of Florida is humid subtropical. South Florida has a tropical savanna climate. It is the artist’s desire to fully depict the weather as it affects all aspects of the composition. The color, technique, rhythm and texture are all focused to evoke the full sensation of what is Florida’s revealing environmental trait.

The Nature of It: Florida’s Past and Present
Edward E. and Jane B. Ford Gallery
Museum of Arts & Sciences
Open August 10, 2019 through October 13, 2019

Throughout most of its history, Florida has been under water. Portions of the Florida peninsula have been above or below sea level at least four different times. As glaciers of ice in the north expanded and melted, the Florida peninsula emerged and submerged. Florida, both under and above water has had an interesting ecological history with amazing animals, some extinct and some still alive today. The Nature of It: Florida’s Past and Present showcases some of the Museum’s Florida specimens alongside pieces on loan from other museums to illustrate the breadth of Florida flora and fauna past and present. 

The Museum’s extraordinary collection of Florida fossils, shells, and other specimens offer a glimpse into the natural history of the state. Immerse yourself in the world of the whale, dolphin, bear, manatee, and other animals that have shaped Florida’s past and continue to shape its future. A full set of giant Megalodon shark jaws on loan from the Florida Museum of Natural History in Gainesville, Florida will be one of the highlights of the exhibit.
