Event Details

An intriguing exhibition by Empire Point artist Mary Joan Hinson has opened at the Haskell Gallery in the Jacksonville International Airport.

Curated by Jen Jones Murray, Art Program Manager at Jacksonville International Airport, the show is entitled Earth Power.  The 31 works reflect a world that exists deep in cognitive awareness.  Nature is the focus, portraying the organic interaction of color, shape and form.  The momentary effects of light, air and water movement are a compositional consideration allowing natural rhythms to take over.  The strokes and hues become defined as deconstruction turns into form.  Contemplation gives birth to concrete images and unification of chaos is the matter of course.  Formalist attitudes give way to images of our ever-changing environment through visions reflecting its ebbs and flows.

The artist took painting lessons as a small child, developing a love of oils and the unique pigments they offered.  She continued her studies into adulthood in the United States, Europe, and the Far East, immersing herself in the cultures and the stimulation they provided, after which time she became a Professor of Fine Arts and Humanities at Florida State College at Jacksonville.  In 2005, she received her PhD and continued to teach and exhibit throughout the eastern United States; 2020 brought a change, however, when she decided to focus solely on her artistic endeavors, and since she has produced large scale murals in the neighborhood of St. Nicholas and the NAS Jacksonville, as well as a solo exhibition at the Goodyear Cottage of the Jekyll Island Resort.

Hinson states, “I am so thankful for this wonderful opportunity to exhibit my work to the thousands that come through JIA and hope that it makes their journey more enjoyable!”  The work can be viewed through December, 2021.
