New works by the multi-talented painter and ceramicist Sharon Sexton will be featured during January at the Center for Spiritual Care in Vero Beach. Sexton’s show is titled “Reflections.”
The exhibition, which opens with a 5 p.m. artist’s reception Friday, Jan. 4, will run through Friday, Jan. 25. The Center is located at 1550 24th St., two blocks north of Vero’s Main Library.
Works in several media will be included in the show. Sexton’s paintings, according to Center Director Carol Ludwig, “reflect her dreams and her fantasies, some fevered, some pastoral. Her vision has deep roots in American art, going all the way back to the early 19thCentury when Edward Hicks produced ‘The Peaceable Kingdom’.”
Her ceramics are rooted not only in her dreams but her observations of nature and its creatures on her ranch west of Vero Beach, which she shares with her husband, Sean.
Sexton began to paint early under the guidance of her parents, both artists. The family’s collection of huge wallpaper sample books and its library of art books gave her a solid foundation as she matured into one of Vero’s most beloved painters.
Following the Jan. 4 reception, the exhibition will be open for viewing by appointment (772-567-1233) and on Saturdays from 1 to 4.
