©2008 St. Hilaire Nelson, Collage on panel, Rays of Hope
The Art of Hope opened on Thursday night at the Alice Jenkins Gallery of the Crealdé School of Art and the Heritage Center in Winter Park, FL. My friend emailed me today to let me know that my art has a nice place in the gallery, immediately to the left upon entering. I was unable to attend the opening as I am in Amelia Island teaching a collage workshop. I am super proud of having been chosen for the show, there was a lot of competition.
The opening featured jazz music with the Chuck Archard Trio. The curator is Bobby Scroggins, Associate Professor of Art at the University of Kentucky, he selected 32 diverse interpretations of the significance of this Election.
Ten Good Women
Another opening I missed this weekend (when it rains, it pours) was my work at the Art and Soul Gallery at the Women's Center of Jacksonville in the show "Ten Good Women." I was invited to show 10 collages and Cookie Davis, the curator of the show, decided at the last minute to come over to Amelia Island and take my workshop! So nice to meet Cookie even though I could not attend the opening. Thank you Cookie!
