Over the last twenty years, Gainesville-based painter Margaret Ross Tolbert has contemplated the springs of North Florida in an ongoing body of work, where a paradisiacal presence provides a sense of ideal destination and the exotic in the here-and-now. The exhibition Lost Springs counterpoints the sense of passage, time, and journey implicit in the Door paintings. In this series, Tolbert explores her personal sense of loss as she bemoans the tragic inundation of the Ocklawaha system by the Kirkpatrick Dam.
There will be an opening reception with the artist on Sunday, Sept. 24, from 1-4 p.m. The event will also feature two screenings of the documentary “Lost Springs,” which follows Tolbert as she experiences springs normally inaccessible due to the Kirkpatrick Dam in Putnam County. The film explores themes of loss, wonder and experience in nature as it follows the course of a drawdown of the dam’s pool, which happens every three or more years, exposing a submerged world normally hidden below the high waters of the dam. The film was produced by St. Augustine-based environmental filmmaker Matt Keene.
