H.O.P.E. Foundation of Yulee takes in abused and unwanted older horses where they can be treated with dignity.
Amelia SanJon Gallery***, located at the corner of Ash and Third Streets is doing something different and exciting this Saturday during the Art Walk!
Sandra Baker Hinton, usually directs all her charitable efforts toward saving our Sea Turtles, but the H.O.P.E. Foundation caught her eye recently when she added the cards and prints by a new artist Marie Brown to her gallery. H.O.P.E. Foundation of Yulee takes in abused and unwanted older horses to a place where they can be treated with dignity, either nursing them back to health or providing a final loving home.
Deb Manser, owner of Cheers Ranch and home of H.O.P.E., has also extended her mission to involve working with youngsters with disabilities or who are at risk.
Please join Sandra and the artists Marie Brown and Nancy Asbell at the Gallery from 5-8:00 PM for a special reception for H.O.P.E.! You will have a chance to purchase work by these artists and a portion of the proceeds of sales of their work will go to the H.O.P.E. Foundation.
Late News Merchants around town have joined this effort and have been offering gift certificates for which you can register just by showing up at the San Jon gallery sometime during the day on Saturday.Also…
Margaret Dyer’s Pastel Painting Exhibition will be on display through the month of June. Be sure to see this wonderful artist’s work while it is still here.

Carol keeps branching out in her artistic endeavors and you have to visit her gallery often to keep up with her. She goes on Ebay and buys odds and ends and “junk” that she puts into her art and the result is wonderful!!! Right now she has lots of new art and jewelry in her gallery. She has many new angels, 3-D wall pieces made out of “found” objects. New earrings, bracelets and purses. Don’t miss her Gallery this weekend.

Andrea Adair-Lasserre will be exhibiting her new work at Indigo Alley through June. Andrea’s current body of work is directly inspired by the history and ongoing renovation of her marital home. The Lasserre House, which was built in the early 1900’s, is the family home of her husband, Charles, a descendant of one of the original families that helped build Fernandina Beach in the 1700’s. Vintage family photos and turn-of-the-century wallpaper gain new life as they serve as inspirations incorporated within her paintings.
Regular hours are Monday – Saturday, 1:00 – 11:00 PM. For more information call 904-261-7222 or visit www.indigo-alley.com.
