It was installed by Eric Berube in its final permanent home, the lobby of the new Plantation Key Monroe County Court House. Following is the official QRC Narrative that was installed at the original painting: “JUSTICE” illustrates the Bahamian immigration to the Florida Keys and its historic contribution to early settlement and agriculture through the introduction of the banana plantation culture. On the right the image commemorates the epic, perilous and innovative construction of Flagler’s railroad. The conceptual fulcrum of Lady Justice as a Caribbean archetype pays homage to this history. Her eyes are not covered by the traditional blindfold but the wing tips of two great white herons reflecting the rich fauna and flora of The Florida Keys.
JAG GALLERY ANNOUNCES THE 2ND ANNUAL "POOLSIDE" EXHIBITION AUGUST 19 TO SEPTEMBER 5 WITH RECEPTION ON FRIDAY AUGUST 19TH.
Following the success of last summer’s juried exhibition, Duval Square’s Jag Gallery invites artists once again to “take the plunge” with an open call to artists for consideration in the gallery’s 2nd annual POOLSIDE exhibit. POOLSIDE opens with a preview reception on Friday August 19th and continues through September 5th on site and online.
The call to artists focus includes 2 and 3 dimensional original artwork, (painting, drawing, sculpture and photography) with swimming pool(s) or the suggestion of as part of the subject or the entire composition.
All details can be found at the gallery’s website www.jaggallery.art.
. The gallery is located at the Simonton Street end of Duval Square, 1075 Duval Street with ample, free parking. Gallery hours are Tuesday-Sunday noon to 5, Monday’s by appointment. For additional information call 305.407.6202 or email email@example.com and follow us on Instagram at jaggallery.
At this point, it is very difficult to assume painting only from its contemplative quality. It has already been reorganizing its own existence, physical and theoretical, for more than a century to subvert and extend a paradigm of mimesis that, at the end of the 19th century, seemed decidedly exhausted. The curious thing is that, after the popularization of the post prefix and the deliberate denial of the story of progress, the mimetic and the contemplative returned as valid creative options. Of course, said resignation validated the repetition of old procedures and, therefore, the relevance of resorting to whatever was necessary for the creation of a novel proposal from the intertextual. It is in this environment where hyperrealism plays its card. Although it boasts certain questioning winks towards the consumer society in its origins, it makes an eccentric virtuosity its most visible characteristic. I don't think I'm wrong when I say that a large part of hyperrealist painting - we can't be totalizing either - is known to be intentionally contemplative. And this is neither good nor bad, sometimes you just enjoy looking at it: a hyper-realistic painting would be something like the careful and unalterable execution of an extremely complex piece of music.
Now, depending on the operation, this contemplative act can be understood as nostalgic or technological, as painting or “post-painting”: it approaches or moves away from pure eye imitation or the reinterpretation of the process through the benefits or new challenges that it could provide the photograph. And this is almost a processual dichotomy originating in hyperrealism itself, between the purity of painting as an exercise or the technological contamination willing to expand its range. As is evident, “Virtuous” breaks these aesthetic and conceptual limits, now understood as procedure and purpose. In other words, the emblematic virtuosity of the hyperrealist is the central theme here and this, of course, implies the inevitable discussion of media and technical mediations.
But if we sharpen our gaze, we could even find in this proposal formal aspects that gravitate beyond the technical framework and the high tones in the creative scale: each artist generates a specific relationship with certain representational referents. For example, the portrait is adjusted to the suggestive restraint of the female face associated with the fashion photography of the first two thousand (Alexander Silva); the landscape moves between almost scientific naturalism (Dionel Delgado González), ethereal monumentalism with surreal twists (Marlon Infante), coastal costumbrism (Yampier Sardinas) and the metaphorical relationship of the dock as a symbol of limitations and continuities (Luis Alberto Saldaña); and the object self-constructs in a contemporary edition of the old still life (Dayron González de Armas). We speak, then, of the mimetic adaptation to a set of symbolic dialogues and affective structures that each image suggests and develops in a personal/creative fields. Everyone shows off his skills in his way, everyone is contemplative in his way.
Broadly speaking, “Virtuous” understands that contemplation leaves an important weight to the selective, subtle conditioning to the viewer's interest, a call for attention based on the ability to capture the gaze. So being contemplative is also convincing and using any resource to achieve it; and, of course, virtuosity is still a very effective tool for it. Hiding meaning to seduce formally ends up working as an alternative, an irritating but true sentence. In part, that unabashed irony of using images just to charm the eyes may be why hyperrealism has always seduced me.

Ben HarrisonSongwriter / Musician / Playwright / Author
At his core, Ben is an entertainer who manages to blend history, musical theater, Key West, country music and humor into unusual stories that are mostly true. For 16 years he played music nightly on the famous Duval Street, where—rather than covering the usual barroom standards of the time—he performed original songs with a wry twist, which established him as one of Key West’s most popular musicians. During this period, Ben recorded five different albums.
Ben has been a guest on The Howard Stern Show, This American Life, Dr. Demento, The Dick Cavett Show and more. He spent his early years in Corpus Christi, Texas. Primarily inspired by music (and Elvis), Ben bought his first guitar when he was 14 years old. His father loved theatre and took the family in their V-tail Beechcraft Bonanza to stage productions all over the country.
Though Ben still performs live, he also writes musicals, three of which are about Key West. Key West, A Musical Tour About Town is a review of songs about local characters and situations that was performed in various venues including the Red Barn Theatre. Undying Love was performed at The Studios of Key West in 2018. Most recently, Ben has written Jungletown 1921 about a double murder and a hanging on Christmas Day, a “sporting house”, prohibition and the Roaring Twenties— another true Key West story.
Guitarist / Producer / Songwriter
Larry is a seasoned contemporary performer and recording artist with an impressive musical history. Larry’s list of musical accomplishments and collaborators is extensive and includes live performances and recording dates with artists ranging from blues legends Buddy Guy, Muddy Waters, James Cotton, Junior Wells, Bonnie Raitt, John Lee Hooker, James Montgomery, Matt “Guitar” Murphy, Albert King, Bo Diddley and Dan Akroyd (Elwood Blues of the Blues Brothers), to jazz greats like Jay McShann, Illinois Jacquet, Eddie “Cleanhead” Vinson, and Claude “Fiddler” Williams.
Baeder has performed in Europe, the Middle East, South America, and Africa. In 1990, Baeder joined the house band at the Apollo Theater in New York City, where he played guitar for the Legends of R&B and Soul revue.
Larry grew up in the celebrated music town of Kansas City, Missouri and graduated from vaunted Berklee College of Music in Boston, Massachusetts. He has served as Board President for Key West’s Bahama Village Music Program in Key West, FL, which gives free music lessons to over 200 underserved children each week.

Bodie Island Lighthouse is on the Outer Banks in North Carolina

This remote stretch of North Carolina coastline has drawn pirates, colonists, and early aviators. Now, it's the realm of beach lovers looking for peace, quiet, white sand, and salt air. Add in the barrier islands' wild dunes (including the East Coast's largest) and multiuse paths — it's actually possible to bike the entire 100-plus-mile length of the Outer Banks — and you've got an amazing region for quaint coastal exploration.

Hike, bike, or hop on a horse and ride through the remote scenery for which North Dakota is known. This 144-mile system is made up of nine trails with various lengths, difficulty ratings, and backdrops, from grassy prairies to dizzying badlands buttes. It's a timeless American landscape, and the trail is aptly named for the Mandan phrase: "An area that will be around for a long time."

You can pretend you're in Victorian London in the Crystal Palace-evoking glass greenhouse that is the cornerstone of this botanical landmark. And its biomes and gardens might transport you to the desert, rain forest, and even the Himalayas.
Thundercloud Over Prairie, Tallgrass Prairie Preserve, Oklahoma
Native grasslands, the ecosystem perhaps most powerfully entwined with our national identity, are on the decline. This protected preserve is the largest sweep of tallgrass prairie in the country, and the world. Here, you can see the American plains as they looked centuries ago, with herds of bison (about 2,500 of the shaggy-haired beasts roam freely) and swaths of purple prairie clover.

Crater Lake is evidence of the tectonic activity that's eternally shaping the planet. A long-ago eruption formed a giant caldera, which filled with rain and snow over time. The gradual result is a deep lake (the deepest in the country, in fact) with intense blue waters and fantastic clarity. Crater Lake's mountain setting atop the Cascade Range makes it even more hypnotic.
Delaware Water Gap, Pennsylvania, USA

The famous Delaware Water Gap area spans 70,000 acres (Pennsylvania and New Jersey), yet its namesake point is where the river carves through the rugged Kittatinny Mountain. See the Gap from Appalachian National Scenic Trail (AT, to in-the-know hikers), which offers a clear view from Mount Minsi.

INCREDIBLE SUPERCELL STORM NEAR HOWARD KANSAS
You can almost feel the power of this storm. That’s because it is a supercell thunderstorm, a type of storm that is categorized by strong, continuously rotating updrafts. We often see supercell storms form in the Plains states, like in Kansas where this impressive supercell was photographed. They are often observed in the area of South America known as the Tornado Corridor, too. The Tornado Corridor is in parts of Brazil, Uruguay, and Argentina. Supercell thunderstorms influence the weather as far away as twenty miles from the storm and they can last up to four hours.
VOLCANO ERUPTION IN CHILE
It is a good thing that Chile’s Calbuco Volcano is surrounded by a National Reserve. Still more than 1,500 people were evacuated when the volcano erupted three times in April of 2015. The last time this volcanic mountain peak erupted was in 1972. Chile and its Calbuco Volcano are located in the Ring of Fire, a ring of volcanic activity that circles the Pacific Ocean. Almost all…all but three…of the most significant volcanic eruptions in the last 11,000 years happened in volcanoes located in the Ring of Fire. Plate tectonics is responsible for the volcanic activity.
WHEN UPSET BABY ELEPHANTS THROW THEMSELVES INTO THE MUD LIKE A CHILD HAVING A TEMPER TANTRUM
What a big baby! Sometimes human babies get overwhelmed, overtired, and frustrated, and the only way they can release the stress is by throwing a temper tantrum. Well, human babies don’t have a monopoly on the tantrum front. Baby elephants have been known to break down and throw a tantrum every now and then. When they do, it is adorably hilarious and downright cute. The baby elephant shown here has thrown himself onto the mud, much to his mother’s dismay, because some aspect of elephant life hasn’t gone his way.
WATER DENSITY TEMPERATURE & SALINITY OF THE GLACIA MELT WATER + THE OFFSHORE WATERS OF THE GULF OF ALASKA MAKES THEM TOO DIFFICULT TO MIX
Not all water is the same. The make-up and temperature of ocean water differs greatly and the different types of water don’t always mix well. As this photograph shows, the density and salinity of the fresh water running off a glacier melt is so vastly different than the salty sea water of the Gulf of Alaska. The result is a distinct line where the two types of water meet but don’t mix.
WHERE DID EVEERYONE GO?
As their native habitat diminishes, bears are finding their ways into neighborhoods and backyards. Naturally curious, it is not surprising to see these bears trying out the unfamiliar playthings. This adorable little bear cub has discovered the fun of a slide. Chances are, this little guy’s mother is nearby, watching carefully to make sure her baby is safe. Just because you don’t see her, doesn’t mean she isn’t there. If mama bear senses danger, she will be right there.
Water spouts can occur in fair weather where there is not storm of tornado activity. They can form on the surface of the water and swirl upward reaching for the clouds. Once the water spout is fully formed, the funnel cloud is clearly visible. They form along the base line of developing cumulus clouds. They don’t often travel far because they form when there isn’t much wind to move them. If a water spout does reach land, fair weather water spouts usually dissipate quickly. They don’t venture too far inland.
That Concludes our 7 Part Photographic Feature : A Natural World of Beauty in 60 Photographs.

Garden Guardians Political Action Committee Announces Campaign to vote YES to grant the Key West Tropical Forest & Botanical Garden a 99 year lease from the City
Key West - Misha McRAE, Executive Director of the Tropical Forest & Botanical Garden announced the launch of a campaign to educate voters in Key West to vote YES on a referendum to grant the Garden Society a 99 year lease on their property on College Road. “When we approached the city commissioners, all six of them and the mayor were very supportive of this initiative.” McRAE said. “We currently are on year 6 of a 10 year lease and in order for us to secure funding for capital improvements we need to have a long term lease in place,” he added.
There will be a City Commission sponsored referendum on the August 23rd Election ballot asking voters to grant the Key West Tropical Forest & Botanical Garden a 99-year lease from the city.
A local political action committee has been formed, Garden Guardians, to encourage Key West voters to vote yes to approve the measure. “The Garden has been the keeper of the trees for 86 years,” McRAE said. “Over those 86 years we have gone from over 50 acres to 15 acres as development has taken priority over preservation and conservation. We want to preserve the remaining forest for generations to come and enjoy the native species of plants.”
The land is owned by the City of Key West and due to the limitations on lease terms this must go to the voters to be approved. The Garden Society, which was formed in 1988 and continues to care for the garden, states that the lease extension will allow them to apply for grants to make much needed capital improvements.
Improvements that are planned for the Key West Tropical Forest & Botanical Garden include physical maintenance, repairs, and general upkeep of the aging facilities; expansion of the Education offices and opportunities; and ADA compliant Boardwalk repairs. Even more importantly, the 99 year lease will allow the Key West Tropical Forest & Botanical Garden to be more visible with new signage on US1 and an improved entrance.
The Tropical Forest & Botanical Garden is home to over 500 species of native plants to the Keys, Cuba, and the Caribbean. It is the only frost-free botanical garden in the continental United States.
