Discover Local Artists: Endangered Florida Species

The exhibit, “Endangered Florida Species,” held on March 16 from 6 to 10 p.m., is hosted by Anthony and Trina Burks and Paul Fisher. The showcase highlights environmental sanctuaries and aims to bring awareness to the state’s endangered species.

Viewers will have two more opportunities to see this exhibit while it’s up at Fisher Gallery when the space is open to the public without an appointment. The first is Wednesday, March 28 when they may see the show and hear a lecture on the severely endangered scrub jay at 6 p.m.. The other time the gallery is open to the public without calling first is 6 p.m. on Friday, March 30 when there will be a lecture on recent threats to the already endangered Florida state animal, the Florida panther.

Part of the proceeds of Anthony Burks’ renderings of wildlife will go to three charities that focus on Florida’s environment. Part of the sales of the works by Greg Matthews, Durga Garcia and Ursula Fernandez will be split between Busch Wildlife Sanctuary, Arthur R. Marshall Foundation and Loggerhead Marina.

The Paul Fisher Gallery is at The Flamingo Building, 433 Flamingo Drive, West Palm Beach. For information, call Trina Slade-Burks at (561) 842-5724.
