Stand out in the Crowd

40×30 | Oil Encaustic | CJK-Studio

Artist Notes

“In the rich tapestry of life, you may find yourself outnumbered by a chaos and pattern of people who don’t envision what you envision, this botanical painting titled “Stand out from the crowd” was inspired by the wonderful young students at PACE. Often these girls are marginalized and its worth remembering that the things that makes us unlike the majority can be actually a strength, a gift, a source of wisdom that can be an enormous blessing for oneself and others.” – CJK

PACE Center for Girls  provides girls & young women an opportunity for a better future through education, counseling and advocacy.

“The PACE students created beautiful “PACE Portraits” that will in turn be auctioned at the CREW December event where all proceeds will be donated back to PACE.  Portrait prints will be framed and given back to the PACE student who created it and the images will also be used to create packages of gift cards, which will be sold at the December event. The PACE Portraits will also be displayed at the December holiday event which will be held on December 3rd, at 5:30 p.m. at the PACE Center for Girls, 2933 University Boulevard N, Jacksonville, Florida 32211.

PACE provides girls and young women in our community with an opportunity to better their future through education, counseling, training and advocacy.  “PACE Portraits with CREW Jacksonville is a very exciting time of year for us at PACE. Volunteers from CREW Jacksonville come to the center and work with a group of girls who have shown interest and ability in art.  The girls will paint portraits to be auctioned off at CREW’s annual event to benefit PACE. In the past, the creative process has been a wonderful outlet for the girls to express themselves. We are grateful to the members of CREW Jacksonville who have volunteered more than 900 hours over the past several years to PACE Center for Girls,” said Jill Auld, Transition Services Manager, PACE Center for Girls, Jacksonville.”
