Two feminine forces unite in The Nature of Impermanence exhibit opening May 13

Palm Beach State College’s Art Gallery at Eissey Campus presents Carin Wagner and Yvonne Parker sharing their complementary artistic visions of change, transformation and our impact on nature in an exhibit titled “The Nature of Impermanence” from May 13 through September 5. The opening reception is at 5:30 p.m. May 13. The exhibit is free and open to the public.

Sculptures, prints and large oil paintings will be on sale with prices ranging from $150 to $30,000. During the opening reception, the first 60 guests will receive black ironwood tree seedlings.

The exhibit takes place in partnership with the Friends of MacArthur Beach State Park. A percentage of proceeds from the sale of Wagner’s art will benefit the Friends’ environmental-education programs for underserved students.

Wagner’s alluring paintings of nature remind us of the cycles of life and that nature and individuals are in a constant state of evolution and renewal. “I would very much love to make a large impact because most of us are going along in our little world and don’t understand how fragile our environment is or how to protect it,” said Wagner.

Parker’s sculptures transform vintage materials into contemporary statements of beauty, truth and love as viewed through personal and philosophical lenses.
