The gallery will present new works by several artists including a significant wall sculpture by Ritzi Jacobi of Germany; pieces made of fish scales by Marian Bijlenga of the Netherlands and new works of repurposed encyclopedias by Wendy Wahl and a copper relief by Mary Giles of the US. Two artists appearing with browngrotta arts will be exhibiting at Artpalmbeach for the first time: Jennifer Falck Linssen of the US and Carolina Yrarrázaval of Chile.
