Appleton Museum of Art Presents: “A Creative Life: Gladys Shafran Kashdin” @ Appleton Museum of Art
Aug 30 @ 10:00 am – 5:00 pm

The Appleton Museum of Art, College of Central Florida, will highlight the life and work of Dr. Gladys Shafran Kashdin in an exhibition opening Saturday, July 26.

“A Creative Life: Gladys Shafran Kashdin” will feature a selection of paintings, collages and drawings that were inspired by Kashdin’s love of nature – massive tree trunks with highly patterned surfaces, fractured rock facades and eroded canyons that become revelations of strength, dignity, power and endurance.

Kashdin’s artwork has been exhibited nationally and internationally for more than 60 years.

This exhibition was curated by Andrew Maass and organized by the Museum of Science and Industry, Tampa. Works in the exhibition are courtesy of the Gladys S. Kashdin Trust.

Kashdin studied at the Art Students League in New York and at Florida State University. She was also a Professor Emerita of Humanities at the University of South Florida. Her works are in the permanent collection of the Appleton, the Mississippi Museum of Art, the Museum of Science and Industry, Tampa Museum of Art, and many public institutions, as well as corporate and private collections.

A longtime friend and supporter of the Appleton, her work was featured in two Appleton exhibitions – “Creative Spirit” and “Gaia’s Daughters.” In addition to showing her work at the museum, she was the co-founder, with Kenneth Colen, of the Ina Gotler-Colen and Gladys Shafran Kashdin Ph.D. Endowed Fund for the Florida Artists Collection at the Appleton.

The exhibition closes Nov. 2.
