Marine Landscapes Art Exhibit Comes to Weedon Island
Brilliant underwater landscapes and wildlife scenes are the favorite subjects of artist C.W. Tanner, inspired from years of diving and snorkeling in Florida waters. His fine oil paintings and limited edition prints are vivid and realistic, but contain a touch of fantasy.
An exhibit of Tanner's work, including the latest edition to his Saltwater Predator Series, will be on display at Weedon Island Preserve Cultural and Natural History Center from August 14th thru September 30th. Tanner will reveal his new painting and discuss his work in general at the exhibit opening, Saturday, August 14, from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. Admission to the exhibit is free.
