The Beaches Museum will host a Gallery Tour of the art exhibit “Water. Life. Art.” by artist Annelies Dykgraaf on Saturday, August 24, 2019 at 11:00 a.m. until noon.
The gallery tour will be an intimate opportunity to immerse in Dykgraaf’s work as the artist herself discusses her technique and inspiration.
Dykgraaf’s acrylic paintings and relief prints are inspired by the connections of the people, symbols, textile patterns, and mythological motifs of her birth land of Nigeria, West Africa and her homeland of Jacksonville, Florida.
Although on different continents, both Nigeria and Florida share coastlines of the Atlantic Ocean. In Nigeria, the Niger River allows fertile life to thrive just as the St. Johns River nurtures life in Florida. Along both bodies of water, people derive their culture.
The event is free to Museum members with a suggested $5 donation from non-members. For more information, please call 904-241-5657 or visit www.beachesmuseum.org.
