The Jax to host Bull Mountain Arts exhibit opening and reception Saturday, Aug. 11
On Saturday, Aug. 11, a new Breezeway Gallery exhibit will open at The Jacksonville Center for the Arts featuring Bull Mountain Arts. The public is invited to a free Meet-the-Artist reception from 5 to 8 p.m. to celebrate the opening of the exhibit.
Bull Mountain Arts began as a cooperative gallery started by several artists in Stuart, Va. Although the gallery was not able to survive the economy, the dream remained, so the artists decided to use different methods to advance the arts in the community. They put on community exhibits, partner with local galleries and hold classes, workshops, and demonstrations at festivals and events.
“It has always been an eclectic group: some fine artists, some craftsmen; some professionals, some amateurs; some lifelong practitioners, and some who take up an art form one year and drop it the next,” said Greg Arens, an artist in the group.
