Coral Springs Museum of Art Spring Exhibition Artist ReceptionThursday, March 27, 6pm–8pm - Coral Springs Museum of Art, 2855 Coral Springs Drive, Coral Springs

Coral Springs Museum of Art is proud to unveil new spring exhibitions featuring a trio of eclectic artists: Henning Haupt, Sylvia Tarshisand Craig Carlisle. The exhibitions reflect the museum’s commitment to exhibiting diverse Florida, national and international artists. German painter and installation artist/Fort Lauderdale resident Haupt, also an educator at Florida Atlantic University School of Architecture, presents “Drawing Lines – Making Space.” The exhibition features oil paintings Haupt created in 2013 and 2014. The paintings explore visual and spatial compositions by using different styles of line structures and colors. The fluid line gestures frame a movement in space that is restricted by the repetitive patterns of the lines. Funding for Haupt’s project is provided in part by the Broward County Board of County Commissioners as recommended by the Broward Cultural Council and is supported in part by a Broward County CIP/NEA grant. Haupt will host an artistic discussion on his work on April 1st at 2 p.m.  Started in the early 1990s, Carlisle’s “Big Heads & The Peaceful Valley Paintings” collection has cemented his position as a major player in the contemporary art scene. The oil paintings feature a series of “big head” characters in either solitary intimate scenes or narratives with fellow “big heads.” Due to the simplicity of the big heads’ features and the flat backgrounds, the paintings evoke a serene optimism recalling childhood innocence. New York, N.Y. and Los Angeles, Calif. gallery George Billis Gallery and the Sharon Weiss Gallery in Columbus, Ohio represent Carlisle. New York-born Tarshis’ “Florals” brings nature indoors. The Delray Beach-based artist’s works feature flowers in a variety of styles from classical still-life depictions to abstract representations. Tarshis has exhibited her art in solo and group shows worldwide at galleries, museums, consulates and Christmas windows for both Givenchy and Bonwit Teller in New York, N.Y. Her works are part of many private and corporate collections throughout the U.S. Exhibitions. On View March 27–May 17, 2014. Artist Reception: March 27, 6–8 p.m. Museum Hours: Monday–Saturday, 10 a.m.–5 p.m. Free with museum admission of $6. Artist Reception free for museum members and $10 for non-members.
