"What's on Your Table?"
at the Jacksonville Main Library
Nov 2022-Jan 2023
A Feast for the Eyes
Amid the rush and excitement of a busy holiday season, we are often presented with moments of quiet. Whether you're taking stock at the end of a long year or taking the opportunity to gather around a table with family and friends, December can be a time for reflection.
For some, the question "What's On Your Table?" might mean a simple dinner menu. For you, the answer might include traditional meals, beloved family recipes or the fine china and silver service you only use for special occasions.
When you ask the fine artists from The Art Center Cooperative, Inc. and Jacksonville Artists Guild the same question, what you get is a uniquely personal and stunning new art exhibition in the Gallery at Main Library.
Open Monday, November 28, 2022, through January 5, 2023, "What's on Your Table?" features work from 34 accomplished local artists.
Our Florida at the Main Library
From Sandy beaches, birds on the wing, flowers, landscapes, framlands, museums, and theatres, you name it, Florida's got it.
And you can see it all on display at the Gallery at Main Library where The Art Center Cooperative, Jacksonville Artists' Guild and 38 local artists proudly present their vision of "Our Florida." This fine art exhibition is open to the public from August 3 through September 24.

2021 Exhibitions & Events
Gaining a Post Pandemic Awareness
NOVEMBER 3RD, 2021 - JANUARY 3RD, 2022
Human nature dictates once we are told to stay inside, our mind wanders to the outside and to some bucket list activities. Always meant to; go pick blue berries, plant a vegetable garden, walk a couple of miles every day, cook two gourmet meals a week, teach the children to roller skate, learn another language and the list goes on. Now that we are reaching Post Pandemic life, do you still have your list, turn your visions, actions into images for this exhibition reflecting hope in these trying times.

VINTAGE FLORIDA, TO JACKSONVILLE AND BEYOND...MAY 2023
"I will take you through the Vintage Florida and Jacksonville Series I have created and explain the historical inspiration, the importance of establishing personal connections to your work, and how you can harness social media to find a niche market for your ART."
“Re-“ … A Prefix for Art and Life
Artists Bio – Lana Shuttleworth
“To call Shuttleworth’s work ‘unique’ is not an exercise in hyperbole. She sculpts bold forms and landscape surfaces that are cut, carved, and assembled with thousands of slivers of plastic and brad nails. She grants redemption to these lowly cast-off materials by transforming them into a feast for the eyes. Her work underscores her commitment to opposing the destructive razing of nature, while simultaneously elevating mankind’s sensitivity to and appreciation of nature in her art.”
– Arbus Magazine, 2018

I am also a member/instructor with the Art League of Jacksonville and have instructed at the Ponte Vedra Cultural Center and UNF. I am a member of the Portrait Society of America, First Coast Plein Air Painters and the First Coast Pastel Society. I belong to and facilitate several local drawing groups and artists organizations in Jacksonville as well as southern Indiana and Kentucky. I work in charcoal, graphite, pastel, watercolor, oil and most recently printmaking.
Painting from the Heart
Presentation by Ted Head
"When my brush dances between reality and imagination, I believe anything can happen..." TH
Bio: My love of drawing began when I could hold a crayon. A yellow-green one, I remember distinctly. Not only did it have a pleasing color, but it also tasted pretty good. Even as a child, my enjoyment of nature’s beauty was never-ending. The intricacy and playfulness of colors, patterns, light, and shadows have always fascinated me.
Presentation by Beth Haizlip
My paintings range from florals, tropical scenes, and landscapes to still life and portraiture. I truly love it all! The more I paint, the bolder I become with my color, design, and composition. Find out more about Beth and her work at Beth Haizlip fine artist

Don’t hesitate to share these with your fellow artists for a worthy cause. Yee ha!

The Art of Print Making Presentation by Barry Wilson
Barry Wilson has been working in the graphic printmaking medium for over three decades. He has exhibited prints nationally and his work is in numerous public and private collections. Wilson holds a Master of Fine Arts from Florida State University. He has taught at Douglas Anderson School of the Arts in Jacksonville, Florida for the last 28 years. Most of the older work seems to fit into three major subject matter categories. Animals & Flowers, Old Machines AKA “Deluxe Merchandise” and abstract pieces AKA “Blue Jay Opuscule”. The majority of these pieces are multiple color relief prints. The newer work involves letters and words. Concrete poetry.

The Nature of Things
Presentation by Crystal Floyd
As a visual artist and aspiring naturalist native to Northeast Florida, Crystal Floyd’s work explores themes of nature, storytelling, and adaptive reuse, transforming collected ephemera and manipulated materials into naturalistic vignettes. Drawing inspiration from the environment and science, she uses preserved insects, plants, taxonomic items, natural artifacts, miniatures and found objects to activate magical narratives. Her practice focuses on encouraging observation and participation in the natural world and closer examination of the individual role and responsibilities we all have to our environment.
