Rob Storter: Art of the Everglades

September 27, 2007 - January 20, 2008
Past

View over 35 original drawings and carvings by fisherman and folk artist Rob Storter (1894-1987). Born in the Everglades, Storter spent his last years recording his memories of growing up, living and working in southwestern Florida, when it was still a road-less and watery wilderness. His drawings and handwritten commentary capture the resilient spirit, natural environs, and dangerous encounters of frontier life in early Everglades City and the Ten Thousand Islands. Among his many images are depictions of natural landscapes, fishing trips, local architecture and the devastating hurricane of 1910. On loan from the Collier County Museum, Storter’s artwork is exhibited for the first time in Miami.
