Gallery 1328 at the University of California Santa Barbara is proud to present “Florida Room”, a solo exhibition by Matt Allison. “Florida Room” energetically combines sculpture, drawing and photography along with more participatory elements such as reading, drinking and open discussion. The exhibition has its creative beginnings in the rural town of Keystone Heights, FL where the artist spent several months living and researching with his wife and creative partner Katie Allison. Located 25 miles outside of Gainesville (and the University of Florida) Keystone Heights was once home to a thriving lake based ecosystem, which has now been devastated by decades of drought and alleged over-pumping of the underground aquifer.
