Island Art Association
The Island Art Association will be open from 5:00 – 8:00 PM in downtown Fernandina and will be presenting Susan Henderson as the February Artist of the Month.
Susan is a Florida painter and Fernandina Beach resident whose work is regularly shown in the Jacksonville Watercolor Society and the Women Painters of the Southeast exhibitions. In 2014 Susan exhibited in the 24th Annual All-Florida Juried Arts Show in Stuart. Susan paints landscapes and plant material from Florida and the American southwest.
The IAA show focuses on recent work from Florida in large format using images familiar to many locals with a different spin. Working in oils Susan captures the unique light and color found in local waterways and plant material.
Susan holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the Ohio State University and has lived and painted in Fernandina since 2006.
The exhibition of Susan Henderson’s recent painting is on display at the Island Art Association at 18 N. 2nd St in Fernandina Beach through February 28. The opening reception is on Saturday February 14 from 5 – 7.
Also on exhibit through February at the Island Art Association is the annual juried Nassau County high school art show. At The Island Art Association, for the month of February, is the Annual Nassau County High School Student Art Show. Four High Schools in Nassau County are represented.
This is a juried show; the 1st, 2nd & 3rd place winners receive gift certificates, paid by the Art Association, for art supplies from Cheap Joe’s Art Stuff in Boone NC.
All winners receive “art goodies” from Joe Miller, owner of Cheap Joe’s Art Stuff. The judge for this show was Avery DeLuca, a history of art student at the University of Florida.
Come see the many talented students in this show!
