RIVER TABLE EXHIBITION

 

River Table is on exhibit at the Cummer Museum of Art & Gardens from February 24 - October 18, 2015.  "Reflections: Artful Perspectives on the St. Johns River" is a special exhibit featuring contemporary artworks by 10 recognized artists.  Images of the full table, as well as shots from the exhibition and its grand opening, are found in this section.

 

RIVER TABLE SECTIONS

 

River Table is comprised of 10 smaller sectional tables linked together.  Each River Section represents a slightly different collection of plant life, informed by real plants found in Freshwater, Brackish, and even Saltwater regions of the river as it empties into the ocean.  Each unique River Section is explored through images here.

The animals swimming below River Table's surface are each sculpted with care.  The individual Creature Vignettes, each a stand-alone sculpture, are showcased here.
