A Brush with Nature – A Plein Air Invitational & Gala

A Brush with Nature – A Plein Air Invitational & Gala

Update – If you missed the big plein air painting invitational at the Arboretum this past week, there are still opportunities to see and purchase some of the incredible work produced by talented artists.

April 2 – 6: Art displayed at the Gala will remain in Gallery L on the mezzanine level of the Wells Fargo Center (former Modis Building), located at 1 Independent Drive. Plan to stop in during First Wednesday Art Walk from 5-9 p.m. April 4. This monthly self-guided tour has become the place to be with numerous galleries, museums, restaurants, bars, musicians and businesses participating in the event.

This is a fantastic Plein Air Event, I  had the best time last year and look forward to being part of the 2012 Brush with Nature Invitational & Gala.  This is a hidden jewel in Jacksonville. Talented artists, volunteers and the hardworking team organizing “A Brush with Nature” at Jacksonville’s Arboretum put this special location on the map and make this event a must see!
