Prints and Drawings by Michael Kemp and Sean Sexton at Center for Spiritual Care
Master printer Michael Kemp and inspired draftsman Sean Sexton will present a two-man exhibition at the Center for Spiritual Care Mar. 6-27. The show will be titled “Land Lines/Sun Circles” and will open with an artists’ reception at the Center 5-7 p.m. Friday, March 6.
The exhibition will feature a conversation at the Center Wednesday, Mar. 11, at 6:30 p.m among Kemp, Sexton and art commentator Ellen Fischer. This will be the fifth in a series that continues to grow in popularity with local audiences. “The conversations have been exceptionally lively and revealing about the aims of the artists and their own feelings about art,” said Center Director Carol Ludwig.
Kemp is a much heralded printmaker who for many years operated a print studio in Northern Florida that attracted artists from across the country to produce work there. He called it Harmless Pleasures and oversaw its workshops, classes and special projects. He lives today in Melbourne, where he continues to make art.
Sexton, among whose many hats is the one he wears as Poet Laureate of Indian River County, is an artist whose paintings, prints, drawings and ceramics have been featured in museum shows throughout the Southeastern United States. His work is in the collection of the Vero Beach Museum of Art as well as those of numerous private connoisseurs.
The Center for Spiritual Care is located at 1550 24th St. in Vero Beach, at the corner of 24th Street and 16th Avenue, two blocks north of the main public library.
