Thursday, October 18, 2012      1:30 & 2:30 p.m.

Spend an afternoon at The Cummer Museum of Art & Gardens enjoying the recent installation of Loïs Mailou Jones: A Life in Vibrant Color. You will enjoy vivid colors, varied styles, and fascinating iconography inspired by her many travels.  Jones painted into her early 90’s and you see her journey expressed in her body of work, from bold and energetic graphics in her textile designs to the soft tones seen in post-impressionism work inspired while living in France back to deep, rich, contrasting hues used to illustrate the people, landscapes, and symbols witnessed living and traveling through Africa, Haiti, and America.

An engaging and informative lecture about this pioneering artist will be given by Assistant Director of Education, Maggie Reynolds and will be followed with tea and light refreshments. Sessions are held on Wednesday, October 17 at either 1:30 or 2:30 p.m. or on Thursday, October 18 at 1:30 or 2:30 p.m.  Admission is $6.00 for members and non-members. Seating is limited so please make your required reservation by calling Louise Stevens at (904) 899-6004.
