Cedar Key Artist-in-Residence Show Featuring Daniel Gottsegen, Vermont
The Member’s Gallery exhibit includes seven of the paintings from Daniel Gottsegen’s short stay on Seahorse Key as the Cedar Key Artist-in-Residence recipient for 2017. The exhibit also contains examples of some work from his residency in Lower Corris, Wales. Daniel shares, “The environment was powerfully different from Seahorse Key in many ways. My working process was similar though, and though I often make very large paintings in my studio at home, the demands of traveling with my work invited me to make a series of quite small paintings in both places, trying to capture an essence of form, color and light.”
The gallery at Cedar Key Art Center is open daily from 10AM to 5PM.
