Mango Tango Gallery Exhibits Sea-Related Art

July 9, 2008 – Mango Tango Seaside Gallery in Yacht Haven Grande Marina will present the Art Ahoy Show beginning with an opening reception that will be held from 5:30-8:30 p.m., on Friday, July 11. The exhibit features works about the legends, mythology and realities of the sea. Gallery goers are encouraged to add to the ambience of the evening by donning costumes.
The participating artists each present one to six works and include Mercedese Bantz, Pam Benedetto, Kathy Carlson, Alison Davis, Stephen Eastham, Derrick Grant, Merryn MacDonald, Kristen Maize, Mel McCuddin, Brian Murphy, Smokey Pratt, Mandy Thody, Lucinda Schutt-O' Connell, Gerard Sperry, Ed Sternberg, Patty Tacquard, W. B. Thompson and Dana Wylder.
The artists work in photography, cartoons, pen and ink, watercolors, oil paintings, acrylic paintings, digital prints, ceramic sculpture and woodcut sculpture.
Dana Wylder, who lived on a boat for over two decades, once helped with a ship installation in a museum in Hawaii. Referring to sketches from long ago, she created three crisp watercolors of the boat riggings, which are technically precise and capture the beauty of their symmetry.
Stephen Eastham is a pirate buff who paints with the finesse of traditional illustrators.
Kathy Carlson's six square-foot pen and inks subtly portray the exploits of pirates.
Lucinda Schutt-O'Connell has painted a large watercolor map of the Caribbean.
Cartoonist and musician Smokey Pratt says that he and guitarist John Brittain look forward to playing for the costumed gallery goers with their children. The evening's play list includes Buffet's "The Pirate Looks at Forty," Lovette's "If I had a Boat," and Tom Waits' "We Sail Tonight for Singapore." There will also be prizes for dancers and free gifts for all visitors in costumes. Light refreshments will be served at the champagne reception.
The show continues for one month. For more information, call 715-2789.
