Mandarin native, Brenda Councill, holds a very successful art show and sale to benefit the museum
We are very grateful to Brenda for spending Saturday, November 26 at Mandarin Museum. She was visiting her family in Jacksonville over the Thanksgiving holiday and offered to do this special show for us. She brought her personal collection of the "Historic Mandarin Series" and well as some fabulous new oil paintings.
Many people came to see and buy and by the end of the day, Brenda's efforts had donated $600. to the Mandarin Museum & Historical Society for the building expansion fund. This was indeed a very generous gift and we are
Brenda sold one of the three oil paintings (seen here), but the other two were not sold, but will be available through the live auction that will be part of our January 23 fundraiser at Julington Creek Fish Camp. We have a brand new supply of the "Mandarin Series" prints (many are hand-colored) available now.
