The Palette Knife Artists of Miami have a deep respect and admiration for mangroves - the "silent sentinels" of our south Florida shores. As artists, they hope to create greater awareness of these magnificent trees, and to encourage people to join in their efforts to protect them. The paintings in this exhibit are characterized by the thick textures achieved by the layering of paint, the richness and veracity of colors in the application of the medium, and the depth of feeling in each stroke.
