George Pappas Retrospective Exhibit in MCC Gallery
(Bradenton, Fla., April 3, 2008) - Today,April 3, is the last day to view a "George Pappas Retrospective" exhibit by the talented artist-educator in the fine art gallery, building 9A, MCC Bradenton, 5840 26th St. West.
The artist's Greek heritage and mythology, archeology, literature, social issues and art history are what he describes as "roots that feed my form and content." Pappas' paintings typically focus on a theme that evolves into a series of related works. The MCC exhibit will showcase artworks dating from the 1950s to today. It includes works from beach and landscape, domestic relationships, archeological sites, artists' portraits, crime scenes and barriers, and literary digest and excavations series.
After more than 40 years experience as an artist-educator, the University of South Florida Chair Emeritus retired in 1993. His work has appeared in more than 100 juried exhibitions at museums and galleries throughout the United States and is in private and public collections in the United States and Canada. Numerous grants and fellowships include individual Artists Grants from Florida's Division of Cultural Affairs. Pappas has degrees in art from Massachusetts College of Art and Harvard University.
