Created in celebration of the 50th Anniversary of Biscayne National Park (1968-2018), Ron Garrett’s work in “Between the Tides” stems from his love of the Parks and his fascination with sunken ships, marine life, relics, and tales of ancient mariners and pioneers.
Upon discovering Boca Chita key and Biscayne National Park a few years ago, he discussed his curiosity for this body of water with Park Ranger Gary Bremen, and the seeds for this show took root. Collaborating with Park Archaeologist Joshua Marano and discovering the many wrecks that occurred along the treacherous reefs of South Florida’s jagged keys, Ron created works to honor the ships and life, now preserved as the Maritime Heritage Trail.
