Majestic palms, bright blue skies, and breezy beach-scapes!! During First Friday Art Walk on July 6th, come to Sea Spirits Gallery to admire the enticingly summery scenes in oil on odd-size canvases by featured artist, Peter Carolin.
Carolin, an award winning painter and sculptor who studied art in Detroit, France, and Florida, has co-curated and participated in several Florida landscape exhibitions and was co-director of the Winter Fine Art Fair, hosted by the Gainesville Fine Arts Association. Peter devotes much of his time to fundraising for charitable causes like health, education, nature conservation, and homeless veterans. In 2008, he was named “Artist of the Year” by the Council for Exceptional Children.
Carolin has made posters for several art festivals and public radio and television fundraising. His work is collected by corporations, including Golder Associates, Naylor Association Solutions, University of Florida Health, Avmed, Exactech, several bank and financial institutions, and Busch Gardens. His work is also part of over 500 national and international private collections. Currently he is adjunct professor at Santa Fe College, Gainesville, FL.
