Adventures in Art

Apr

06

The next Adventures in Art series at the Ponte Vedra Library will be held on Tuesday, April 10th from 6:30- 7:30 p.m. Cummer Director Hope McMath and Vietnam veteran Richard Chamberlain will be presenting Art and Healing– The Year of the Sheep.

Richard Chamberlain began this series of paintings encompassing his experiences in Vietnam. He called this collection The Year of the Sheep, which is the Chinese zodiac for the year he spent in Southeast Asia. This series consists of black-and-white images that are reminiscent of the abstracted landscapes. Chamberlain used these paintings to deal with his anger and depression from the war. His healing method resulted in this emotional and brilliant collection.

Adventures in Art is a monthly series put together by FOCUS Cummer and the Friends of the Ponte Vedra Beach Library. All events at the library are free and open to the public.  No reservations are required.

FOCUS Cummer is an affinity group of The Cummer Museum of Art and Gardens. FOCUS members are residents of the Beaches area who are involved with a variety of educational and social events that support The Cummer’s mission to engage and inspire through arts, gardens and education.

The Friends of the Library is organized to enhance and enrich the community by making the Ponte Vedra Beach public library an outstanding educational, cultural, civic and recreational center.
