Hope McMath, yellow house

They will follow her career and think ‘what a journey she made’ and marvel a little at the woman, the place, the time. I had dropped by earlier in the afternoon. I’ve …

Creative Community Building at the Beaches: Atlantic Pottery Supply

Atlantic Pottery Supply, Tim Bullard, Creative Community Building at the Beaches: Atlantic Pottery Supply

Jacksonville’s growing art scene isn’t only taking place downtown. While Art Walks and exhibition openings ‘across the ditch’ may often steal the limelight, there is an up and coming art scene at the beaches that is on the verge of erupting in the best way and all of us are invited to take part.  Speaking as an native, I remember taking pottery classes in during high school and attending figure drawing meetups in at this adorable artists’ co-op on the corner near Lynch’s. These creative collectives fueled me as a young artist and provided an environment for learning, growing, bonding, …

ROB MIDDLETON, CYNTHIA WALBURN, & STEPHANIE CAFCULES Abstract art is made for emotion. It’s open and free, a democratic form made for the artist to interpret their feelings and for the viewer to interpret from there. It makes the viewer question what it represents, if anything at all. It’s a surprising art form, and sometimes the most surprising thing about it is where it’s located. The Haskell Gallery, located in the pre-security, has been housing art for over 20 years. Its newest addition is Abstraction: Bold + Beautiful, showcasing abstract works by three local artists. “This show is one of …
