Appleton Museum hosting ‘A Breeze Through Fertile Gardens’ exhibit exploring female form

A new exhibit coming to the Appleton Museum of Art will highlight the work of an artist whose work is inspired by the female form.

The museum will play host to the works of Andrew M. Grant through a new exhibition entitled “A Breeze Through Fertile Gardens.” The exhibit will feature drawings and paintings by Grant, who was born in Montego Bay, Jamaica and migrated to the United States at an early age.

The exhibit will run through November 7.

On view in the Balcony Gallery for Florida Artists, Grant’s paintings and drawings of the female form are inspired by the four elements of earth, air, fire and water, according to the museum.

On August 19, the organization will host an “Artist’s Outlook” online talk via zoom at 7 p.m. with Grant. During the session, Grant will discuss his work, inspirations, and journey as an artist. That Zoom Meeting ID is 302 190 0088, and the passcode is 352352.

During the First Free Saturday event on Saturday, September 4, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Grant will offer walk through tours of his work during which he will discuss the influence of Bouguereau on his work.

The Appleton Museum is open Tuesday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday, 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. The museum located at 4333 E. Silver Springs Blvd.
