The Lighthouse ArtCenter in Tequesta debuted two new exhibitions on Tuesday, November 9: “Roberta B. Marks: Anthology” and the “Faculty Holiday Exhibition.” The exhibitions will be on view through December 11.
“Roberta B. Marks: Anthology” in the ArtCenter’s Spencer Gallery showcases the works of the Key West-based artist, who is a widely collected and is featured in museums and galleries throughout the United States and Europe, including the Smithsonian and Victoria and Albert Museum in London. Marks works in sculpture, mixed media, painting, and collage.
From shops in Mumbai to flea markets in Marseilles, Marks collected discarded items that resonate with meaning and history to create her signature “Construction Art.” The art narrates stories created by old suitcases, clocks, antique books, and pictures.
“We’re honored to share the ‘Roberta Marks’ exhibition with the community. Roberta is an accomplished artist who was raised in Coral Gables and currently resides in Key West. She’s lived a rich and long life which has shaped her three-dimensional art,” says curator Janeen Mason. “She met Mother Theresa and studied under Thich Nhat Hanh for 40 years. Roberta has worked and exhibited all over the world. During her travels, she collected objects used in her evocative assemblages. These speak to your heart when you see them in person.”
In the ArtCenter’s Shorr Gallery, visitors will find the “Faculty Holiday Exhibition,” showcasing ceramics, glass, jewelry, sculpture, photography, oil, watercolor, and acrylic paintings all available for purchase. The exhibition will appeal to art enthusiasts and collectors with fresh original art created by the esteemed faculty at the Lighthouse ArtCenter.
“The ‘Faculty Holiday Exhibition’ provides an exciting two-fold opportunity. You can buy unique gifts for your loved ones, as well as view the talent on display and select which faculty members you’d want to study with,” says Mason.
