Brenda Hope Zappitell: A Journey of Gestures

In continuing the tradition of the All Florida Juried Competition and Exhibition and showcasing artists living and working in Florida, the Boca Raton Museum of Art is proud to present a selection of paintings by Brenda Hope Zappitell.

Zappitell credits the Boca Raton Museum Art School as an indispensable training ground during her early years, which helped catapult her to national recognition that she enjoys today. Those early years included representational work and collage. However, she soon found imagery to be a crutch and was moved to employ the gestural freedom of Abstract Expressionism.

“My paintings emerge from the emotion I feel in the moment my brush touches a blank surface," said Zappitell. "I am a very physical and spontaneous painter. Moving back and forth with decisive brush strokes and dynamic gestures, I work rapidly to capture that ephemeral feeling in tangible form.” The results are large panel compositions with layers of vigorous marks that are innumerable and subtle.

In addition to painting, Zappitell is an accomplished writer and instructor, regularly contributing to Professional Artist Magazine and holding private workshops in Florida and New Mexico.

People and Places: Photographs from the Collection

Some of the most illustrious sights and characters of the 19th and 20th centuries will be within reach this summer as the Boca Raton Museum of Art presents People and Places: Photographs from the Collection. From July 25–August 23, two galleries will be dedicated to prints of some of the most recognizable icons of the modern era, captured by masters of the art.

The Museum’s permanent photography collection includes more than 1,500 images from several significant photographers, including Henry Fox Talbot, Edward Steichen, Robert Doisneau, Sebastião Selgado, Margaret Bourke-White, and more. Although the collection spans continents and categories, this summer’s exhibition pares down the works to showcase subjects of celebrity, including famous locations and stars of the silver screen.

Shannon Plumb: What A Character

Shannon Plumb’s solo exhibition of short videos and Super-8 films is inspired by the spirit of slapstick comedy and the physical humor of iconic silent screen legends such as Charlie Chaplin and Buster Keaton. Plumb creates and plays a diverse cast of characters such as Olympic athletes, cowboys, and advertising announcers, employing a low-fi asthetic with long takes and hand-made props and costumes.

Curated by Kathleen Goncharov, Boca Raton Museum of Art.

Izhar Patkin: You Tell Us What to Do

Israeli-born, New York based artist, Izhar Patkin, fills the Museum's gallery space with spectacular mural-size paintings on tulle fabric.

Grand, labyrinthine, yet surprisingly intimate the space is resplendent with personal narrative, political metaphor, and myth emphasizing memory, loss, love, and exile.

Outreach Expo II: Artists in the Making

As a vital part of the community, the Museum provides visual arts programming to four local aftercare facilities located in Boca Raton and Delray Beach. The year-round program, Meet a Master, Create a Masterpiece Roadshow, affords underserved students at these locations the opportunity to learn about and create art. Inspired by the Museum’s permanent collection, these participants have generated works of art with a personal touch. In recognition of their imaginative creations, the Museum is celebrating these unique works with this exhibit.

A New Path: Two Installations in the Colonnade

This Color is Great by Renata Stih and Frieder Schnock

Stih & Schnock are Berlin-based visual artists who introduce art in public spaces thereby affecting everyday life.

In this work, the artists have used the common expression of a woman’s lips and what she might be saying in contrast to what she is actually thinking. This is the first in a series of artist-commissioned banners along the Amphitheater colonnade that dramatically changes a familiar path as the visitor approaches the Museum.

The Pursuit of Happiness by Roberto Behar and Rosario Marquardt

Behar and Marquardt, who established R&R Studios in Miami, have a multidisciplinary architectural practice weaving together visual arts, exhibition design, architecture, and urban design. They have been commissioned to rethink the entry into the Museum along the colonnade, providing a new pathway that is at once intimate and monumental. Their installation incorporates multi-colored ribbons in the interior gallery windows, draping the space making it both public and private by way of the sensual sway of vivid colors.

As part of this project, R&R Studios has redesigned the Museum Store, which stands as the “cornerstone” of the Museum, the first space the visitor sees upon entering the building where the colonnade and the courtyard intersect. The Store reopened to the public on November 1, 2014. The Store features one of a kind and limited edition works for sale by local, national, and international artists and artisans along with exhibition-specific merchandise, trunk shows, and author events.

What is a CVV Code?

CVV2 is a security measure for credit cards. Since a CVV2 number is listed on your credit card, but is not stored anywhere, the only way to know the correct CVV2 number for your credit card is to physically have possession of the card itself. All VISA, Discover, MasterCard and American Express cards made in America in the past 5 years or so have a CVV2 number. However Diners Club does not use a security code.

How to find your CVV2 number:
On a VISA, Discover or MasterCard, please turn your card over and look in the signature strip. You will find (either the entire 16-digit string of your card number, OR just the last 4 digits), followed by a space, followed by a 3-digit number. That 3-digit number is your CVV2 number.(See below)

VISA, Discover & MasterCard


On American Express Cards, the CVV2 number is a 4-digit number that appears above the end of your card number. (See below)
