Rio Carrabelle Gallery First Friday
January 5 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Rio Carrabelle Gallery is hosting another one of their popular First Friday art events on Friday, January 5th from 5:00-8:00 pm at Rio Carrabelle Gallery in downtown Carrabelle. This laid-back, fun First Friday will feature music, food and fun. Guests can enjoy the gorgeous photography, paintings and art of some gifted, local artists while enjoying the sounds of some fabulous, live music along with lively conversation with talented artists and friendly folks. The art of phenomenal photographer, Bo May, will continue to be on display as the featured exhibit entitled MOON JAZZ. Bo invites guests to witness this visual voyage at the Rio Carrabelle Gallery, where MOON JAZZ transcends the boundaries of time and space, resonating with the eternal cadence of celestial harmony. Guests will also enjoy the outstanding original art of Pat Moore, Barb Ryan, Roger Leonard, William Owen, and Joe Kotzman.
MOON JAZZ is an artistic testament to celestial rhythms, capturing the ethereal dance of time, light, and lunar majesty. The images harmonize with the Major Lunar Standstill—a rare event initiating an 18-year cycle of lunar ascent and retreat, akin to the ebb and flow of musical notes.
Bo May orchestrated this cosmic jam session with extended time exposures, diverse shutter speeds, and camera movements, akin to a jazz musician experimenting with tempos and rhythms. The MOON JAZZ series was composed at McKissack Beach in Carrabelle. A narrative unfolds through the lens, revealing a progression from “expressionistic” spontaneity to intentional control. Noteworthy among the compositions is “Fibonacci Pirouettes,” intricate moon spirals that defy the constraints of the night sky.
Rio Carrabelle Art Gallery is located at 102 St. James Avenue (US Hwy 98), Carrabelle, Florida and is open Thursdays thru Saturdays 10 am – 3 pm.
