COWS At COMMA: Celebrating theArtistry of the BovineJuly 8-September 5, 2008Artist's reception July 8th 6:30-9pmCattle were first introduced to North America in Florida in 1521 by Spanish explorer Juan Ponce de Leon. Much of "Natural Florida" remains in the working landscape of Florida's cattle industry. Wildlife and plant systems are well-balanced and thriving on Florida's ranch lands. Nearly one-half of all Florida Agricultural land is involved in cattle production. Florida has 4 million acres of pasture land and 1 million acres of grazed woodland.COMMA has invited some of it's 'stable 'of artists' to take the 'bull by the horns' and show us their favorite heifers. Florida's Plein Air painters are often engaged in high risk behavior while painting moooody cows. Bernie Martin, Tom Sadler, John Wilton, Lynne Polley, Richard Colvin, Karen Carasik, Stephen Bach, Robin Maria Pedrero, Elizabeth Nelson, Don Newton, Sally Evans, and Grady Kimsey are some of who have braved fields of pies, methane and testosterone laden bulls to document the fabulous Florida cow!
