A day with Seth Apter

Seth Apter was in town teaching workshops at the store.  I managed to play hookey from the store again this year and we decided to visit Mounts Botanical Gardens and an Old Church

Mounts Botanical Garden is located in Palm Beach and this was my first visit there.  They had an exhibition of Washed Ashore – Art to Save the Sea.

This was a horrifying but fascinating exhibit.  The Artists made some fabulous art but it is made entirely from debris washed ashore from the ocean.

The art is made from all kinds of plastic:  Toilet Seats, Bouys, Flip Flops, Childrens Toys

This bird’s feathers were made from tires


To give you idea of scale, this parrotfish weighs 1600lbs


Some natural beauty.  Inside a flower20180521_105401

This one was the most disturbing to me.  All along the logs of the starfish were bullet casings!20180521_105219 20180521_104753After we visited the gardens we decided to have lunch at a local Mexican Restaurant and had just enough time before his flight to go and visit Bethesda By the Sea

Bethesda by the Sea is an old church on the Island of Palm Beach and has some magnificent stonework and gardens
