Our delightful, featured artist, Maggie Holmes was “artist in the store” at the Cummer Museum of Art & Gardens.
In her own words…
The wonderful gift shop of the Cummer Museum has a selection of my hand painted silk scarves for sale. I was asked to be the “artist in the store” for one of the museum’s “open to the public evenings”. These events provide an opportunity for the public to interact with the artists one on one. That evening, I was on hand to speak about how I apply the dyes to the silk to create the designs on the scarves.
The Cummer Museum is located in Jacksonville Florida on the St. Johns River, an historic and active Florida waterway. The museum focuses on portraying European and American artistic paintings. It also has a large collection of Meissen porcelain as well as beautiful historic gardens right on the river. Next time you are visiting Jacksonville, be sure to stop by the Cummer Musuem.
