"I am looking forward to meeting some new art lovers at my first solo
show at the beautiful Coconut Grove Gallery and I will be bringing some new paintings to exhibit there for the first time," she said.
In her bold and colorful oil paintings, McArdle, born in Jamaica, then brought up in England, captures the beauty of the fast disappearing natural Florida. She researches her subjects of native Florida species and unaltered, natural landscapes in the same places many of us go to escape the modern world; National Parks, State Parks, Wildlife Refuges and other preserved areas. Carol has received grants and awards. Along with Clyde Butcher, she is one of the ten chosen Geo Atlas Artists of the Legacy Institute for Nature in Culture and has been a Resident Artist for a year in Delnor Wiggins State Park. She has also had a solo show at the Museum of the Everglades, and her work has toured the US, representing the Everglades.
Especially popular are her roseate spoonbill portraits, waterscapes with mangroves or sea grapes, landscapes and her latest subject, water turtles. All bold and beautiful; museum quality oil paintings. The show will run until December 4.
Coconut Grove Gallery and Interiors is located at 2884 Bird Avenue.
