Slow Art Day is a worldwide celebration of art that encourages people to look at art SLOWLY – and thereby experience art in a new way. For Slow Art Day, Lovegrove will debut a new exhibition of paintings that contains numerous portraits of Christ that she has painted throughout the years. Many of them were painted live during special performances at various churches throughout the United States. These large and small canvases will remain on exhibit at her gallery during Holy Week. The exhibition will be open and available to the public between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. from its opening on Slow Art Day on April 12 through April 19.

Leoma Lovegrove, is an impressionist-expressionist painter known worldwide for her splashy, artistic depictions of the Florida lifestyle. Located in the heart of Matlacha Island on the southwest coast of Florida, Lovegrove Gallery and Gardens is one of the most colorful landmarks in the Sunshine State.
