Dade Heritage Trust presents the artwork of Ronald Shelley, with an exhibit at DHT headquarters, 190 SE 12 Terrace.
About the artist: Ronald Shelley has perfected his abilities as a professional illustrator and fine artist. His seemingly effortless style belies his mastery of the exacting watercolor technique. He has a keen understanding of perspective, design detail, and the play of light on objects.
Ronald’s skills as an artist include graceful depictions of cabbage palms in the Everglades, dramatic tropical skies; long-gone railroad packing houses and barns; and the subtleties of Florida’s changing seasons.
The artist was born and raised in Rugby, England. His early childhood was influenced by the joys of artistic pursuits and the difficulties of living in war-torn England. He emigrated from England in 1956, arriving in the United States to work as a rodeo cowboy in Texas. In the late 1960s, he moved to Florida, working as an actor, landscape designer and illustrator. Ronald lives in Miami.
Exhibit runs through April 2nd.
