Coral Springs, FL (May 3, 2018) – The Coral Springs Museum of Art will celebrate three new captivating exhibits with an artist reception on Thursday, June 14, 2018 from 6 p.m. – 8 p.m. The main gallery will feature photographic artist Francie Bishop Good, the East Gallery will showcase the works of Florida-based oil painter Dana Donaty, and the Kuhn Gallery will present a collection of plein air paintings honoring Florida’s Everglades. Guests will enjoy complimentary hors d’oeuvres as well as a cash wine and beer bar.

“Our complimentary receptions allow guests to speak with the artists firsthand about their work and connect with it on a deeper level,” said Julia Andrews, Executive Director of the Coral Springs Museum of Art. “Although these artists use different methods of creation, these new exhibits in particular are vibrant, colorful and thought-provoking, which add to their technical excellence.”

All three exhibits will be on display from Saturday, June 2 – Saturday, August 25, 2018.

Francie Bishop Good


Good and her mother graduated from the same high school in Allentown, Pennsylvania. After reflecting on photographs in her mother’s “Comus” yearbook, comparing them to those in her yearbook, she used her interpretations as a limitless source of material for this series. Good cross-pollinates painting, photography, drawing, and collage with digital layering to create portraits in a series that is a staccato of media and a hybrid form of portraiture. In “Comus,” Good transforms high school yearbook pictures to a new reality.

Dana Donaty

Profoundly Playful – A Survey of Work

Widely recognized for her provocative canvases with unusual narrative, Donaty’s unmistakable satirical lexicon is a perfect collision of reality and fantasy, psychological flirtation and a super-charged palette that is like a party about to get thoroughly out of control.
