A story told in still life photos

When you’ve spent a career taking still life photos in the world of New York advertising and then pivot to fine art, what kind of story do you tell? That’s the true-life biography of photographer and artist Barry Seidman, who shows a new set of work this month at the Cultural Council of Palm Beach County titled “My Drawers Series.” The exhibition comprises several photos of (you guessed it) actual drawers filled with items from the artist’s life and tells a personal story. Don’t miss it!

From the sea to the land

One man’s trash is another man’s treasure when it comes to the new exhibition on display at Mounts Botanical Garden, titled “Washed Ashore: Art to Save the Sea.” Literal tons of repurposed plastic beach debris make up the organization’s 10 giant sculptures that decorate the gardens in the forms of fish, seals, whales, puffins and other ocean animals. If you’re one to support the intersection of arts and environmentalism, then this is the show to see!

“Washed Ashore: Art to Save the Sea”: On display from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily through June 3. Adults $15, children $5. Mounts Botanical Garden, 531 N. Military Trail, West Palm Beach. Info: 561-233-1757 or www.mounts.org/washedashore
