For decades, locals and visitors have enjoyed Freda Coffing Tchumy’s commissioned works at Fairchild Tropical Botanical Garden (2005) and the Miami-Dade metro system University of Miami stop (1983). “Strong Paintings” is the first comprehensive survey on the work of this local sculptor and Master of bronze casting. The curatorial focus is put on the gestural, painterly quality of the artist’s experiments, that result in sculptures and two-dimensional objects where she combines bronze and other materials.
