History Fort Lauderdale

History Fort Lauderdale will feature “The Art of Tim Forman – Beachscapes,” free with Museum admission, July 5–Sept. 27. Forman’s colorful and impressionist coastal works will be on display at the New River Inn. The grandson of renowned Davie dairy farmer Hamilton Forman, Tim grew up in South Florida. Some of his favorite pastimes were visiting the beach, fishing in Biscayne Bay with his dad, and stargazing. He first picked up the brush at the age of 9 under the instruction of Peter Olsen. By 17, Forman was receiving commissions. His work is the result of dedicated practice. Primarily a self-taught artist, he uses field sketches, plein air paintings and photographs to compose his pieces, which are painted in layers with both knife and brush. He creates his landscapes to portray the splendor and simplicity of the natural world around us. Through his work, Tim seeks to lift the spirits and inspire awe above our day-to-day lives.

General admission for History Fort Lauderdale is $15 for adults, $12 for seniors, and $7 for students (through age 22 with a valid student ID). Admission is free for members, military and children ages 6 and under. Tickets are available online or onsite at History Fort Lauderdale. Call ahead for hours.
