Current Exhibition: Panther Coffee Sunset Harbour
Our very own Galen Bradley and Christian Mejia have collaborated on the current exhibition at our Sunset Harbour location.
Galen, a barista at both Panther Coffee locations, uses acrylic and oil in strokes that evoke a curious gray sentiment in his subjects both portrait and scene. The work nurtures a personal nature as its underlying tone commands heed to its premise. The pieces tie in beautifully to the space, giving the sense as if Galen has brushed concrete strokes in the walls themselves to complement his work.
Christian, a roaster for Panther Coffee, uses a lens to capture images that show an aesthetic contrast between the new and worn. His iconic-to-us “nothing major” cap compares the image of something unused, along with that of the same object after time served. In a similar exploration of labor, the alluring images of dilapidated buildings—having worked for us in a way—charmingly contrast against the polished walls they are shown on.
We are overjoyed to display the creative works produced by Galen and Christian: two highly regarded members of our beloved coffee family.

Current Exhibition: Panther Coffee Wynwood
A dear friend of Panther Coffee, Mark Diamond has been documenting the world in 3D for over 32 years. He has been telling stories with pictures since the age of 5; professionally as a photojournalist for Associated Press, Time Magazine, Rolling Stone and others since his teens.
Mark has affectionally documented hallmark moments at Panther Coffee: from capturing our 1927 Probat Perfekt in 3D motion, to Lucy’s sweet expressions in infancy. We are proud to show his new show of fresh 3D works created over the last 2 years at our Wynwood location. The twenty-six 3D photographs are actually composed of many photographs taken from slightly different perspectives and presented in 3D without the use of glasses.
"On display you are seeing stereographic representations of people, places and things that have caught my eye as beautifully presented volumetric tableaus. My work seeks to convey the wonder of binocular 3D vision through the exploration of our perception with various auto-stereographic media."
