Visit the UNF Gallery at MOCA for the opening of Margaret Ross Tolbert: Lost Springs. Free and open to the public.
*Includes the special premiere of an accompanying film by Tolbert and Matt Keen in MOCA’s Theater at 1:30 p.m. and 2:30 p.m
Over the last twenty years, Gainesville-based painter Margaret Ross Tolbert contemplates the Springs of North Florida in an ongoing body of work, where a paradisiacal presence provides a sense of ideal destination and the exotic in the here-and-now. The exhibition Lost Springs counterpoints the sense of passage, time, and journey implicit in the Door paintings. In this series Tolbert explores her personal sense of loss as she bemoans the tragic inundation of the Ocklawaha system by the Kirkpatrick dam.
The exhibition will be on view from September 23 – December 31, 2017.
