West Palm Beach- The Box Gallery presents the work {of) Don Shearer, a retrospective exhibition. Guest curator Sandra Schulman has followed Shearer's career for over 30 years. From the late 80's to present day Don Shearer has been one of Miami Beach's most puzzling enigmas in the art world. The humble and somewhat reclusive artist has works in the collections actor
Willem Dafoe and the late Vincent Price.

Shearer has navigated his career from group shows on South Beach to his one man show at Madison Square Garden. Don is 2 time HORTT winner at the Ft Lauderdale Museum of Art, with accolades from the 1993 cover of XS Magazine to a profile spot on New York high society's holy grail "Page Six" of the New York Post.

Schulman has organized Don's early to most recent artwork in design, paintings, clothing, steampunk & hardware as an installation to be experienced, placing the viewer not in front of the work,
but inside decades of complex and rich juxtapositions of
Don Schearer's creations.

A unique artist and talent, Shearer has been in the South Florida and New York art scene for over 30 years, known for his angel paintings, bold activist graphics, found object jewelry, painted furniture and installations. The Box Gallery is proud to announce the first solo exhibition on the Cultural Corridor of West Palm Beach. 

“As an artist I plead insanity to experience everything in life at the deepest level of fascination, to be the only one like me, but to rhyme with everyone.”
-Don Shearer
