Speaker: Kathy Stark, Jacksonville based watercolor artist and author.
A Jacksonville native and resident Kathy specializes in watercolor and oil painting. A member of the Southlight Gallery in downtown Jacksonville, Kathy’s work has been collected both privately and corporately and has been shown in museums and galleries in Northeast Florida.
Kathy graduated from Bartram School in Jacksonville, now part of the Bolles School. She earned her Bachelor of Arts from Furman University in Greenville, SC, and continued her post baccalaureate education at the University of Florida.
Kathy is going to share with us her project The Wilderness of North Florida’s Parks which consists of her book and traveling art exhibit and how she has become a parks ambassador. Her project combines her expansive watercolor paintings with sketches, historical facts and maps to create an exhibit that is a unique blend of art and education, serving as a tribute and guide to the great unspoiled stretches of our region. The exhibit and book are an outgrowth of Stark’s personal passion for the outdoors and her love of the natural beauty of North Florida. Her project is sponsored by Merrill Lynch and in partnership with Timucuan Parks Foundation.
Meetings start with refreshments at 6:30 pm and programs at 7:00 pm (unless otherwise noted)
