Convergence brings the painting of Carmelo Blandino to Naples Botanical Garden in an exhibition inspired by flora and fauna of South West Florida. Known for his luscious, abstract floral paintings combining the subtleties of classicism with the crackling energy of contemporary expressionism, Carmelo Blandino explores the human connection to nature through his body of work. Blandino — whose interactive painting process encourages the viewer to become part of his work — will produce a new series for this exhibition, drawing inspiration from the living collection at Naples Botanical Garden. Meet-the-artist, live painting from Sunday Nov 22 through Saturday Nov 28th from 11 am – 5 pm daily. (Closed Thanksgiving Day).   In early October, community members were invited to virtually collaborate with the artist through a Garden open photo submission, offering participants a personal stake in the art and message within it — an urgent call to cherish and preserve nature.
