You feel that — that morning a few days ago when you stepped outside and it didn’t feel quite like you’d walked headfirst into a blast furnace? That, my friends, is the first inkling of fall, the time of year when we put away the pilsners and lemon drops and stock up on brown liquors and dry reds, when the glories of the gridiron return to our televisions and EverBank Field, when we start eyeing Christmas lists and making Thanksgiving plans, when we break our sweaters out of the back of the closet and turn our backyards into fire pits, not because we need to — it’s never really that cold — but because it’s theseason.

This is also the time of year when Northeast Florida’s arts and culture scene is at its finest, from the stage to the orchestra, from concerts to outdoor festivals (which you can now attend without getting soaked from either the humidity or afternoon thunderstorms), from museums to galleries. The Fall Arts Guide is a celebration of all that, a day-by-day calendar of the hundreds upon hundreds of events and shows and openings and performances taking place all throughout the First Coast, from today until the end of the year.

There’s a lot going on around here this fall. You should really take advantage of that.

One other quick note about this issue: The cover for our annual nod to the Northeast Florida arts and culture scene is taken from a piece by local artist Eric Gillyard, a Jacksonville native who attended Douglas Anderson School of the Arts and specializes in what he calls “dark collages.”

“I go into making these with one idea,” he says. “They just kinda keep developing. They’re loose narratives.”

This particular loose narrative is called Mistress. You can see a collection of Gillyard’s work in Bold Bean Coffee Roasters in 5 Points.
