There will be an open house reception from 2 to 4 PM on Saturday, August 20, with an additional reception and opportunity for the public to meet the artists in conjunction with Jacksonville’s Art Amble on August 26 from 5 to 7 PM.

The exhibiting artists are members of the Artists’ Workshop, a group founded by Jacksonville artist Elaine Witteveen over 25 years ago. The members of the workshop gather weekly to paint “en plein air” and to offer instructive comments to improve each others work.
