Renewal: Going Native is a celebration of the natural beauty of Florida’s indigenous plants and the wildlife they support. This exhibition is part of Renewal: Going Native Plant Week celebrating the City of West Palm Beach’s recently revised landscape ordinance that highlights and rewards the use of native plants in public and private landscapes.
A free opening reception for this exhibition will be held on Wednesday, June 20, from 6 to 8 pm. The show will run June 20th- August 4.
For this exhibition the Palm Beach Photographic Centre partnered with the Palm Beach County Chapter of the Florida Native Plant Society and set about identifying photographers who are focused on the beauty of the Florida native landscape.
Eighteen photographers have contributed 100 images to this exhibition. The participating photographers are Kevin Barry, Donna Bollenbach, Richard Brownscombe, Christina Evans, George Gann, Roger Hammer, Kirsten Hines, Craig Huegel, Teri Jabour, Mary Keim, Susan Kolterman, Susan Lerner, Don Marchetto, Chuck McCartney, Rufino Osorio, Rebecca Sabac, Loret Setters, and Peg Urban.
Images range from the most exquisite closeups of flowers to mysterious landscapes and from wild natural areas to planned private gardens.
Our goal is for the viewer to experience the joy and aliveness of the native landscape.
This exhibition is made possible by the support of the City of West Palm Beach Commissioners Moffett, Materio, James, Ryan and Neering, the Florida Wildflower Foundation, Audubon Everglades, The Institute for Regional Conservation, Oleander Garden Club and numerous private donors.
