    What better way to celebrate motherhood, than creating memories to last a lifetime with a MAMA & ME portrait session.  Life with kids can be noisy, sticky and unpredictable not to mention busy, Busy, BUSY.  Mom's are so often the photo journalists in the family.  Mom - when was the last time you had a beautiful series of photographs of you with your child or children?

    Jacksonville Artists Guild at First Street Gallery

    On Exhibit April 6 - May 23, 2017; Opening reception Friday, April 7, 2017 7-9pm

    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
