Two Palm Coast artists will soon have their work featured at the Museum of Arts and Sciences in an upcoming exhibit called "Synchronicity," presented by Beaux Arts of Central Florida.
Marilyn Leverton and Peter Cerreta will each have one piece of art on display.
Leverton, a resident of Palm Coast for the last 14 years, has been an artist for a quarter of a century. Her favorite medium is sculpture — clay, specifically — though she paints from time to time. Her piece on display is called “A Moment in Time.”
“I call it ‘A Moment in Time' because a butterfly would only rest for a moment,” Leverton said. “... Life is fleeting, so you just have to enjoy every day.”
This is the second time a work by Cerreta has been in the MOAS.
Cerreta's acrylic piece in the exhibit is called "Well There's Always Next Saturday Night." He retired to Palm Coast in 1988 after owning a gallery in New York for 17 years and working in education as an art teacher, guidance counselor and administrator for 40 years.
“When I was at college at Pratt, it’s very interesting that the painting teacher told me, ‘You’ll never be a painter,' so I switched to sculpture,” Cerreta said. “So, now I do both."
The Beaux Arts group is comprised of 50 professional artists, 26 of whom have work on display in this exhibit.
