Opening reception Monday, December 2, 7-10 p.m.
Quattlebaum Foretich Gallery is pleased to present Message in a Bottle, curated by Lori Zimmer at SCOPE Miami Beach 2013. Message in a Bottle explores the romantic history of blindly throwing messages to sea, leaving it to the hands of fate to deliver them to their intended recipient. Visitors are invited into a maritime ship chandlery, where contemporary artists have created their own message for the ages, captured inside bottles and waiting to be unlocked by their new owners. A special animation by Beau Stanton will further the seafaring fantasy.

Andria Alex, Gabriel Barcia Colombo, Keren Benbenisty, Jud Bergeron, Jason Botkin, Jack Bratman, Simon Butler, Amanda Church, Annika Connor, Molly Crabapple, Alex Diamond, Jim Doran, Elle, Tiffany England, Ron English, Rudy Fig, David Elan Foox, Ray Geary, Gilf, Stephanie Hague, Fred Harper , Gordon Holden, Kim Holleman, Lee Hunter, Coby Kennedy, Jamie Knowles, Esmeralda Kosmatopoulos, Ewelina Koszykowska, Ian Kuali'i, Francisco Lopez, Daniel Luchman, Carlos Mare, Ofelia Marquez, Tara McPherson, Bridgette Meinhold, Buff Monster, Trong Gia Nguyen, Ann Oren, Miguel Ovalle, Don Pablo Pedro, Robin Red, Becky Reeve, Donna Ruff, Kenny Scharf, Kristen Schiele, Megan Schmeidel, Paul Mpagi Sepuya, David Shillinglaw, Nyugen Smith, Alison Sommers, Beau Stanton, Shark Toof, Vahge, Ted Victoria, Victor-John Villanueva, John Von Bergen, Emily Weiskopf, Elizabeth Winnel, Yoichiri Yoda
