By Florida Tech // January 6, 2013
Exhibition Opens Jan. 28
BREVARD COUNTY • MELBOURNE, FLORIDA – The Foosaner Art Museum will feature an exhibition by Indialantic artist Sloane Keats later this month.
The exhibit will make its debut at 10 a.m. Monday Jan. 28 in the museum’s Harris Community Auditorium.
Keats’ works are inspired by the lush tropics of Florida.
Her thickly textured oil paintings reveal her love of bright colors, pattern, texture and movement. She shares her passion for painting and her technique of blending oils directly on the canvas.
Keats has been a featured artist in Art in Public Places and has exhibited in numerous juried art shows, invitationals and group gallery shows.
Her work has been on display at Vero Beach Museum of Art with the Vero Beach Art Club and has received several awards.
Most recently she took a first place award at the 45th Annual Space Coast Art Festival; a Best 2-D Demo Award at Art Works of Eau Gallie; and a Best of Show at the Heritage Isle community of Viera.
She also is a member of the Central Brevard Art Association.
Museum Monday is a community outreach program that focuses on art and creativity in various forms.
Sponsored by the Foosaner Art Museum, the free programs are held in the Harris Community Auditorium at 10 a.m. on the fourth Monday, January through May. Light refreshments are served.
The Foosaner Art Museum is at 1463 Highland Avenue in the Eau Gallie Arts District of Melbourne.
