Pink Gold Rush

They discovered it by accident in the dark of night, and by the time the full moon shone, the Pink Gold Rush was on. Florida shrimpers first found the nocturnal pink shrimp in 1949, bringing a frenzy of fishermen with trawlers and nets to Fort Myers Beach, ready to pan the sweet, delicious 'pink gold.'

Hundreds of boats once offloaded at the local shrimp docks. Today, fewer than 40 come to port as development, economics, and the environment take their toll on a once vibrant industry and way of life. Through seven decades, shrimpers have struggled against adversity. How much longer can they survive?

Salmon Deadly Sins
Five thousand salmon colored index cards, the seven deadly sins, bizarre anagrams and a host of serendipitous occurrences have mingled in the artist's imagination and emerged on paper as Salmon Deadly Sins.

Artist Steven Vander Meer creates his drawings with inspiration derived from words. These include the titles of the film's seven chapters: envy, gluttony, greed, lust, pride, sloth and wrath. Each chapter also has an anagram of Salmon Deadly Sins, to inspire further creativity in the drawings. Self portraits are prevalent in the artist's work, and remind us that creativity comes from within.
