By Sharon Aron Baron
The latest exhibition by parkland artist Nava Lundy will have many viewers around the world.
In collaboration with the Broward Cultural Division, the opening exhibition “Through New Eyes” is now in the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport Terminal 2.
Lundy, the Parkland Talk Unveiled in 2019, is a nationally recognized artist best known for her series of large format paintings of Muses, which are Greek goddesses of poetic inspiration depicting strong, fascinating, and captivating women, and more recently for her hyper-colored animal paintings .
Terminal 2 Art Gallery is located after security and features a number of animal paintings in the north area and a number of muse-inspired paintings in the south gate area. The artwork, created exclusively for this exhibition, is layered with nuanced colors and textures. In addition, a three-dimensional element gives it a sense of tactile energy.
“Lundy’s exhibit brings a sense of joy and excitement to the space with bright colors and themes accessible to all ages,” said Phil Dunlap, director of Broward Cultural Division. “The rotating nature of these exhibits will also provide a dynamic program with our local talent that we hope passengers and staff alike will enjoy for years to come.”
“What a great way to usher in the New Year with the opening of this wonderful gallery in the newly modernized Terminal 2,” said Mark Gale, FLL CEO / Director of Aviation. “We hope these exhibits will allow passengers to experience the cultural richness of our community while also promoting our local artists by sharing their work with hundreds of thousands of passengers.”
A wife and mother of three, Lundy paints in her home studio in Parkland. She received national recognition following the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. She donated portraits of the victim’s relatives.
Since 2009, FLL has been offering its own space in Terminal 2 to present and promote the work of local artists. To date, nearly 20 artists have had one-person shows.
The Terminal 2 Art Gallery, which was completed in December, will have changing exhibitions every six months, and artists from Broward, Palm Beach and Miami-Dade counties are eligible to participate. Lundy’s exhibition will run until June 2022.
