Zabar's is launching a series called Zabar's Creative Family. This will showcase the creative endeavors of those within Zabar's outside of their work at Zabar's.

Painting with Pigment and Painting with Light
When Judith and Stanley Zabar came to Key West and became great patrons to all the arts, few people if any knew how truly creative they were.
Judith, a long time painter has amassed an impressive body of work full of passionate colors and beautifully mingled lines that guide the viewers’ eye through her paintings. Showing a progression in style from representational work to pure abstraction, Judith exhibited her first one-woman show last season with great success and accolades on her creative passions.
This year Judith has chosen to exhibit some exciting new paintings, but also showcase “Dreams”, an illustrative documentation of her personal dreams. This terribly creative and quite amusing series will be offered as giclee prints and portfolio editions.
For over sixty years Stanley Zabar has been playing with cameras and developing in his own darkroom. This never satisfied him until he was introduced to a process which involved taking a picture of light which encompassed the subject matter. The process was introduced as “RAW”. Technically, when the camera snaps a picture of the light shown on the camera’s light chip, the light encompasses the subject and the light spectrum. Stanley looks at the colors available to him from that light as if it were a painter’s palette and chooses from the available colors. Stanley is not shy with this palette as he shares life as he sees it. As a contemporary artist, Stanley considers what he is doing is painting with light. He does his own painting and printing on his Epson 9900 printer in his New York studio.
Stanley has had a number of shows, but he is excited to present this show in an exhibition of 30×40 inch canvases titled “Painting with Light”.
In the tradition of always supporting the arts, fifty percent of the “Painting with Light” show will benefit The Studios of Key West.
Please join us to view this creative collection and meet the artists on March 8th from 5:30 to 8:30 PM at Cocco and Salem Imagine Art, located at 1111 Duval Street Key West. For further information contact us at 292-0072
