Further Information about the Exhibition

Since moving to the Southeastern United States in 1985, Mark Messersmith has been captivated by the region’s unique environment.

Drawing on inspirations ranging from the Pre-Raphaelites, Martin Johnson Heade, Southern folk art and medieval manuscripts, the paintings of Messersmith are dense, radiant, and sculptural depictions of the flora and fauna of northern Florida struggling to survive.
