History Fort Lauderdale presents “Tranquil Tropics: The Art of Tim Forman & Friends”

History Fort Lauderdale, celebrating 60 years of being the proud steward of our community’s past by making our heritage accessible and engaging to residents and visitors, will present “Tranquil Tropics: The Art of Tim Forman & Friends” from Sunday, July 10 through Sunday, September 11. This all-new summer art exhibit featuring Forman’s award-winning work alongside lauded local artists including Linda Apriletti, Hitomi Saito, Diane Delorey, Tammy Seymour, Danielle Perry and Connie Commette will focus on Florida’s tropical beauty and its conservation. The exhibit will open with an artist group meet and greet reception at noon on July 10 at the New River Inn (231 Southwest Second Avenue).

 

Tim Forman is the third generation of Formans to have been born and reared in South Florida. He first picked-up the brush at nine years old under the instruction of Peter Olsen. By 17, Forman was receiving commissions. Primarily a self-taught artist, Forman’s work is the result of dedicated practice. He uses field sketches, plein air paintings, and photographs to compose his pieces that are painted in layers with both knife and brush. He creates his landscapes to portray the splendor and simplicity of the natural world around us. Through his work, Tim seeks to lift the spirits and inspire awe above our day-to-day lives.

 

All of the works will be exhibited in a newly renovated art space on the first level of the New River Inn. Visitors may also donate $10 to the museum to be entered into a raffle to win an original Tim Forman 12” x 24” artwork entitled “Beach Surf.” The winner will be announced on Sept. 12 (need not be present to win).

 

Entry to the exhibit is free with general admission – $15 for adults; $12 for seniors and $7 for students (through age 22 with a valid student ID). Admission is always free for members, military and children ages six and under. Tickets are available online
