We are pleased to announce that we have awarded our 2021 scholarship to Anabel Dent, a recent graduate of Lemon Bay High School. Anabel has been drawing and painting since early childhood and creates both 2D artwork and 3D sculpture pieces. Anabel states, “I focus a majority of my work on the journey of outer-body experiences, representing the external and internal feelings of these experiences.” Anabel is also interested in exploring ways to include representation of her cultural identity, mainly her Filipino and Romanian ancestry, into her art. She plans to attend the University of Florida in the fall, double majoring in Art and Business.
From June 5 to June 30, the Gallery will be displaying several pieces of Anabel’s art, both 2D and 3D, and will host a reception for her on June 17th from 5 to 6:30 pm. The public is invited to stop by the Gallery anytime in June to view Anabel’s creative artwork, and also to attend the reception and meet Anabel in person.
