Mennello Museum of American Art (MMAA) will present Mark Messersmith: Long Summer - an exhibition featuring dense paintings of Florida?s untamed landscapes where black bears wade among lotuses, discarded bottles top tree branches, and herons devour their dinners under the high contrast light of the sun and moon - as well as offer a tour with the artist and special workshop in July of 2024.
