|Dark Crystals, at the Art Gallery at Eissey Campus, Palm Beach State College|
Finally, to show in South Florida, with South Floridian artists I love and admire, and to be brought together by Jacques de Beaufort, who connects us with the kind of attention to detail that I think we all have in common.

"The collective work of this particular group of artists, de Beaufort says, have qualities that are not only mysterious and indefinable—a “darkness”—but also possesses a radiance and beauty that qualifies them as “crystals.”
“What cannot be denied is that the works in question are indeed in possession of [a] vibrational energy,” said de Beaufort. “Each artist’s work remains a universe onto themselves, art that has been lovingly crafted into something so specific it cannot be shared by language. These ‘Dark Crystals’ are in possession of a certain quality that can be ascertained only through direct observation.”
Thank you Jacques, and Karla Walter, gallery coordinator extraordinaire, who somehow manage to do all this and make their own exceptional art at the same time. Don't me ask how.
