F.L.A. GALLERY – 10 N. Main St – GAINESVILLE, FLORIDA
from the CINDERS BLOG – POSTED SEPT 7, 2012:
For the inaugural show, artists KELIE BOWMAN, JOHN ORTH and SERRA VICTORIA BOTHWELL FELS . . . “create new wilds inspired by the Florida landscape. The state’s visual vocabulary includes: oaks dripping Spanish moss, sandy sunny days, shell strewn beaches, palmettos, cypress knees, loud and flashing thunderstorms . . . “
JOHN ORTH showed several times at CINDERS GALLERY, when it was located in an actual physical storefront on Havemeyer St. in Williamsburg. his work is very hands-on, no industrial fabricators here !! . . . usually using wood and very on edge. like they say: GAME ON.
