Manuel Cancel: Everglades & Echoes Artist Reception/Everglades Fund-raiser Oct. 2

September 18, 2014

Rosenbaum Contemporary is partnering with the Arthur R. Marshall Foundation for the Everglades to present Manuel Cancel: Everglades & Echoes, an exhibition of paintings. The exhibition opening/artist reception will double as a fund-raiser for the Arthur R. Marshall Foundation for the Everglades with a portion of the proceeds from the sale of Cancel’s work benefitting the organization. The event will be held from 6 to 9 p.m. at Rosenbaum Contemporary’s Boca Raton gallery, 150 Yamato Road, Boca Raton, Fla., and is open to the public. Attendees are asked to RSVP to or 561-994-9180 x203.


“The Marshall Foundation is delighted to be chosen as a partner by Rosenbaum Contemporary...Our job is to educate about the Everglades, so this is a perfect opportunity to broaden awareness about this very unique place,” said Mark Pafford, CEO of the Marshall Foundation.

Manuel Cancel: Everglades & Echoes will feature Cancel’s Everglades series and related waterscapes.


“Working on (the Everglades series) I realized that the paintings related also to places I have seen in Argentina, Uruguay, Spain and France…One big world made of water, floating plants and trees with all the mystery of it,” Cancel said.


Cancel was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, and currently lives and works in Paris, France. His work has been shown in museums in Argentina and France, galleries on four continents, and in major art fairs including Art Basel Miami Beach, FIAC Paris and TEFAF Maastricht. It has also been exhibited in the Argentine Embassy in Paris. 


Manuel Cancel: Everglades & Echoes will remain on view at Rosenbaum Contemporary’s Boca Raton gallery through Nov. 13. Regular gallery hours are Tuesday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
