Join us for our monthly meeting on April 24, 2018

7pm - 9pm at Cultural Center Ponte Vedra Beach

Guest Artist - Rita Blum


Rita Blum, 2016 Artist of the Year, will show us how she accomplishes her distinct style in her watercolors.  Most of us are familiar with the complex details and clear colors of Rita’s watercolors of local and exotic locations.  Her Jacksonville rivers and bridges show our city at its best!
