America’s Parks Exhibition

Two of my paintings have been juried into the America’s Parks exhibition at the Lightner Museum from June 9 to Aug. 31, 2016.
“America’s Parks is a national traveling exhibition that features works of parks in North America,” said Andy Witt, executive director of the St. Johns Cultural Council. “We are thrilled to provide artists with the opportunity to be part of this well-known exhibition to showcase the incredible parks and artists we have in our county.”

Statement of Work

“Plein air painting allows me to express my unique vision. As an artist I am responding to the surroundings, capturing key details, the people, at Castillo de San Marcos & Fort Matanzas National Monument. The spontaneity and excitement is evident, I wanted to show these historical places of beauty, with a modern view point. The National Parks are our playgrounds – places of pilgrimage — they are here for us and future generations to enjoy.” – CJK

Claire J. Kendrick, born in Ireland, has been living in North Florida since 2006. Collectors respond to the contemporary style and the expressive way in which she paints. “You should paint as you live life; expression should be in your work. See the things of beauty you enjoy and fill your life with that energy.” Claire’s paintings have been published in American Art Collector Magazine, Florida Design and Veranda Magazine. Claire is professionally represented by galleries in Cannon Beach OR, Fernandina Beach FL, Naples FL and locally by Plum Gallery, Aviles Street, St. Augustine. Visit her website for details –
