Upcoming Exhibitions

August 10 - October 18, 2014
63rd Annual All Florida Juried Competition and Exhibition

As the state’s oldest annual juried competition, the All Florida has introduced the work of thousands of Florida artists working in all media: emerging, mid-career, and established artists. It reinforces the Museum’s commitment to Florida artists, provides professional exhibition opportunities for emerging artists, and reveals a provocative glimpse – through Florida artists’ eyes – of the state-of-the-art today through approximately 100 paintings, sculpture, photographs, video and installations.

Theresa Ferber Bernstein: A Century in Art

The American artist Theresa Ferber Bernstein (1890–2002) made and exhibited her work in every decade of the twentieth century–a truly awesome feat. Working in realist and expressionist styles, she treated the major subjects of her time, including the fight for women’s suffrage, the plight of immigrants, World War I, jazz, unemployment, racial discrimination and occasionally explicitly Jewish themes such as a synagogue interior or ritual objects such as a menorah. While her portrait subjects include Albert Einstein, Martha Graham, Judy Garland, Louis Armstrong and Billie Holiday, yet it is her particular sensibility and empathy with those subjects that set her apart from her contemporaries. Theresa Bernstein: A Century in Art features a plethora of paintings along with interviews and related memorabilia spanning this great artist’s long and illustrious career.

Organized by Gail Levin, Distinguished Professor Baruch College and the Graduate Center, The City University of New York

Bryan Drury: Terrestrial Visions

Employing the same highly detailed realism found in his other works, Drury (born, 1980) exploits the oil-paint medium to meticulously render the topography and organic quality of the sitters’ flesh, contrasting their physicality with the divine nature that they embody within their respective traditions.

In his paintings every wrinkle and hair follicle is exposed in the face of his sitters. The soft creases in the skin of highlight the tactility of a person’s skin, calling attention to the mortal aspect of being. In his portraits, Drury does not acquiesce to expectations of flattery, instead he exploits the power of oil paint to describe their corporeal flaws of his sitters as precisely as possible. He exposes the disconnect between the corporeality of the body and the abstraction of identity, which exists across cultures, religions and societies.

Drury was born in 1980 in Salt Lake City, Utah and relocated to New York in 2001. He received an MFA Cum Laude from the New York Academy of Art in 2007 and his BFA from The Cooper Union School of Art in 2005.

Curated by Marisa J. Pascucci, Boca Raton Museum of Art.

Izhar Patkin: The Wandering Veil

This survey of works by the Israeli-born, New York based artist, Izhar Patkin, will fill the Museum's main gallery space with spectacular mural-size paintings on tulle fabric, entitled Veiled Threats.

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

Curated by Kathleen Goncharov, Boca Raton Museum of Art

Surrealism and Magic

An exploration of the surrealists' interest in magic, arcane learning, and indigenous spirituality, the exhibition includes paintings and works on paper by Kurt Seligmann, André Breton, Matta, Dalí, Marcel Duchamp, Yves Tanquy, Man Ray, Max Ernst, Masson, Dorothea Tanning, Leonora Carrington, Wilfredo Lam, and Magritte.

Inspired by the magic-themed library of Mr. Seligmann (1900-1962), the exhibition includes rare books from the fifteenth to twelfth centuries, correspondence, ephemera, music, and film.

Organized by the Herbert Johnson Museum, Cornell University. Curated by Andy Weislogel, Curator of Earlier European and American Art (Johnson Museum) and Laurent Ferri, Curator of the Pre-1800 Collections, Rare Books & Manuscripts, Cornell University, Carl A. Kroch Library.

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)
