(Bradenton, Fla., Oct. 31, 2019)The Gallery at State College of Florida, Manatee-Sarasota (SCF) will host a retrospective exhibition, titled “Surreal,” Nov. 1, 2019-Jan. 3, 2020,  presenting the work of painter Steven Kenny. The Gallery at SCF is open 10 a.m.-3 p.m., Monday-Friday. An opening reception will be held Friday, Nov. 1, 4-7 p.m. Regular gallery hours and the opening reception are free and open to the public.

The exhibition will celebrate the purchase of a Kenny painting to be added to the SCF Collection. The painting purchase was made possible by a generous donation by Sarah Pappas, SCF president emeritus.

Kenny’s work is highly sought after by collectors in America and abroad. He is loaning The Gallery a piece from his personal collection for “Surreal,” his meticulous recreation of Salvador Dali’s “Daddy Longlegs of the Evening-Hope!” Kenny even rebuilt a replica of the original work’s frame. Kenny serves as a docent at the Salvador Dali Museum in St. Petersburg, Florida.
