The Foosaner Art Museum presents Derek Gores: Local Edition, a mid-career retrospective of work by Melbourne resident, Derek Gores. Internationally renowned for his vibrant collages built from magazine scraps and snippets, Gores was honored to have his work selected for the Manifest Hope DC exhibit coinciding with the Presidential Inauguration in 2009, and in 2010 he was named “One of the 40 important artists of the New Contemporary Movement” while in an exhibition in London. Local Edition offers the best of Gores’ most recognizable work, alongside new pieces created specifically for this hometown exhibition.
This exhibition is curated by Serene Kawas McGroarty, artist, art consultant and newly minted resident of Brevard County.
