The Box Gallery presents the work of Don Shearer, a retrospective exhibition. Guest curator Sandra Schulman has followed Shearer's career for over 30 years. From the late '80s to present day, Don Shearer has been one of Miami Beach's most puzzling enigmas in the art world. The humble and somewhat reclusive artist has works in the collection of actors Willem Dafoe and the late Vincent Price.
Shearer has navigated his career from group shows on South Beach to his one man show at Madison Square Garden. Don is a two-time HORTT winner at the Fort Lauderdale Museum of Art, with accolades from the 1993 cover of XS Magazine to a profile spot on New York high society's holy grail "Page Six" of the New York Post.
Schulman has organized Don's earliest to most recent artwork in design, painting, clothing, steampunk, and hardware as an installation to be experienced, placing the viewer not in front of the work, but inside decades of complex and rich juxtapositions of Don Schearer's creations.
A unique artist and talent, Shearer has been in the South Florida and New York art scene for over 30 years, known for his angel paintings, bold activist graphics, found-object jewelry, painted furniture, and installations. The Box Gallery is proud to announce the first solo exhibition on the Cultural Corridor of West Palm Beach. The exhibition opens October 14 at 7 p.m. Exhibition dates are October 14 to November 12.
