200 First Street Events

First Street Gallery welcomes Jacksonville artist Gail Beveridge a graduate from the University of Florida College of Architecture and Fine Arts with honors.   After many years as a commercial interior designer, Beveridge made the transition to that of a professional artist.  As an award winning sculptor, she exhibited in juried and invitational shows throughout the United States and has been represented in Jacksonville and New Smyrna Beach.  More recently she has pursued her long time interest in painting with her works winning awards and featured in juried exhibitions.  

Beveridge was Co-Chair (2011, 2012) and Chairman (2013, 2015) of the Event Committee for A Brush with Nature – a Plein Air event at the Jacksonville Arboretum & Gardens and was previously a Decent at the Jacksonville Museum of Modern Art.  She was also selected by the Cultural Council of Greater Jacksonville in 2006 to create five art awards for its annual Art Awards Luncheon honoring community leaders for their contribution to the arts.

First Street Gallery welcomes The Jacksonville Artists Guild for a juried exhibition of beach related art.  The Jacksonville Artists Guild is dedicated to elevating artistic awareness and participation by artists through dynamic programs and exhibitions that enhance, encourage and promote the arts.  The Guild was the legacy of well known and respected artist, Christine Schmidt (1922-2009).  In the fall of 2009 Carole Mehrtens and Bill Schmidt approached Jon Coffee, the Rector at Mark's Episcopal Church, with the idea of creating an artists guild.  He was immediately enthusiastic and supportive to fulfill Christine's long time desire to establish an artists guild for Jacksonville to encourage and support area artists and those interested in art appreciation.  The first formal meeting of the Jacksonville Artists Guild was held on October  9, 2009.  The group continues to meet monthly on the first Monday of the month often highlighting workshops or guest speakers.  Their community outreach include past projects with Jacksonville Zoo & Gardens, Angels for Allison, No More Homeless Pets, The Garden Club of Jacksonville and yearly exhibits with the Riverside Avondale Preservation Home Tour.   For more information about Jacksonville Artists Guild, please view their website www.jacksonvilleartistsguild.org
