Mark Messersmith: Scenic Delusions of Ordinary Disappointments
April 16 – July 10, 2011

As an associate professor of painting at Florida State University, Messersmith’s work closely illustrates the theme of conservation and over-development in Northern Florida, and its effects on the indigenous wildlife. Featuring dioramas of bright colors, density and collages layered with photographs, drawings, paintings and self-made or found objects, this exhibition will include nine of Messersmith’s highly-regarded, large-scale, multi media paintings, many of which are over 80 inches in height.
