Friends of the Fernandina Beach Library (FOL) invites the entire community to a Meet and Greet reception to view the new exquisite art exhibition titled “The Art of the Japanese Print” at the Fernandina Beach Branch of the Nassau County Library. The reception, which offers coffee and refreshments, will be held from 10 am to 12 pm, September 10th in the new Community Room at the Library, located at 25 North 4th Street.
Christine and Paul Meehan are graciously loaning a portion of their collection of contemporary Japanese prints to Friends of the Library for an exhibition from September 1st to December 30th as part of the Library’s new revolving quarterly community art exhibits.
The Meehan collection, initiated in 1975, was previously exhibited at the Morikami Museum in Delray Beach, Florida, and exemplifies all the major printmaking techniques in use today including woodblock, intaglio, planographic/lithography and stencil/silkscreen, providing a wonderful opportunity for residents and students in our area.
During the reception, FOL will acknowledge a most generous contribution from the Rotary Club of Amelia Island Sunrise. The group raised funds during its Fourth Annual Wine & Food Tasting. The proceeds of which will benefit computer literacy through its strong support for the new Technology Center at the Fernandina Beach Library Branch.
