Join First Street Gallery April 6th through May 23rd as they welcome 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.
