Mary Mirabal opens her solo exhibition of colorful paintings inspired by her travels to the American Southwest on Nov. 1 at the TECO Public Art Gallery.
Ms. Mirabal, who lives in Tampa when not in Santa Fe, New Mexico, known as a creative arts hotbed, paints the colors and emotions of the high desert area. “I paint with bold colors, the colors of my soul. As an intuitive painter, I find inspiration in sights, emotions and memories. I strive to create paintings that speak of the simple beauty existing in everyday life,” the artist said.
Her artwork is collected internationally. Exhibitions include: the Highlands Museum of the Arts (MoTA), solo shows at the historic Rialto Theatre, and numerous group shows like at the Scarfone-Hartley Gallery at the University of Tampa. Ms. Mirabal is represented in Florida by Woodfield Fine Art in St. Petersburg, and the Hat Ranch Gallery and Turquoise Butterfly in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
An artist talk and tour of the “Color Strokes” exhibition, which runs through Jan. 6, 2020, is free and open to the public. The tour is from 5 to 7 p.m. on Nov. 22 at the TECO gallery, 702 N Franklin Street in downtown Tampa. For information, about the gallery, which is open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, contact Curator Debra Radke at email@example.com
