Lighthouse ArtCenter Gallery & School of the Arts in Tequesta will aim to celebrate homes of all kinds this summer with two concurrent exhibitions, “Summer Home” and “Super Summer 2.0,” both on view from June 7 to August 7.
The “Summer Home” exhibition will take up residence in the center’s Spencer Gallery to showcase Jupiter Island resident Lucy Bassett Andrews’ exquisite dollhouse collection. The three dollhouses are known for the miniature art by world-renowned artists like Cy Twombly, Julian Schnabel, Ross Bleckner, Donald Baechler, Rebecca Warren and Philip Taaffe, adorning the walls. The artists came together in 1993 to create more than 50 custom-designed works in their signature styles for the dollhouses. Stay a while and wander through the large canine-inspired oil paintings and dog sculptures by Floridian artist Skip Hartzell.
In the adjacent Schorr Gallery, “Super Summer 2.0,” is a family-friendly exhibition and MakerSpace. The exhibition features acclaimed puppeteers, FX animation engineers, and works by Carter Goodrich, the creator of characters in Despicable Me, Ratatouille, Finding Nemo, and Shrek. The interactive exhibition will also feature kid-friendly Tiny Towns inspired by The Jetsons, Swiss Family Robinson, The Flintstones, where young creators can build objects with easy-to-use animation software and 3D printers.
