March 27th Program – An Evening with Florida Times-Union Photojournalist Will Dickey… Surveying the Artistry of His Fascinating Portrait Studies & Breathtaking Landscapes

Will DickeyPlease join us on Tuesday, March 27th for an exciting evening with special guest, Florida Times-Union Photojournalist Will Dickey. This special program, “An Evening with Florida Times-Union Photojournalist Will Dickey… Surveying the Artistry of His Fascinating Portrait Studies & Breathtaking Landscapes.”

https://www.eventbrite.com/e/an-evening-with-florida-times-union-photojournalist-will-dickey-tickets-43624200157

Will Dickey has been a Jacksonville resident since he became a staff photographer for The Florida Times-Union in 1983. News events, environmental portraits, sports, business, digital illustrations and features are among his daily assignments for the newspaper. His work has also been featured in Water’s Edge, Florida Trend, Newsweek and Time magazines, ABC World News and National Geographic’s website.

Will has won regional and national awards for his newspaper work. But he has a special respect for nature and for the beauty of the northeast Florida landscape, especially the Timucuan Preserve and the St. Johns River.

The waterways and woods are his passion, professionally and personally, and photographing them is something of a return to his roots. He grew up in Alabama and wet his first hook as a young child, fishing alongside his father and uncles in the creeks and ponds of his hometown Chatom, north of Mobile. In high school and college (Auburn University) he developed an interest in photography and turned his camera to nature.

For the past several years, Will’s images of the First Coast landscape have been displayed in local art galleries and he is now exhibiting at area outdoor art festivals.

Check out his Landscapes, Photojournalism and Follow him on Facebook!

We meet at the Ramada Inn in Mandarin (I-295 and San Jose Blvd). Social time begins at 6:30pm with announcements and meeting beginning at 7:00pm.

Susan Michal’s Fine Art Gallery Event

You’re Invited!

Susan Michal will present a Fine Art Gallery Event titled “FLOWERS IN TRANSITION” on October 29th, 2015 at the Thrasher-Horne Center for the Arts. There will be a Public Artist Reception from 7:30pm – 9:00pm.

Please RSVP to: studio@susanmichal.com

Flowers in Transition is a photography exhibition featuring the fine art flower photography of Susan Michal.

A note from the artist: When you look at a flower through the camera lens you see things that you may never have noticed when viewing them with the naked eye. I love the complex textures, the intense colors and the unexpected shapes. Some are soft and gentle in their beauty, some are bold, many are funny and some are just strange, proving that God has an intense sense of humor and a strong imagination. I am very aware of the short life that flowers have, and have been very interested in photographing them as they transition through the stages of bud to bloom and death.
Susan Michal’s fine art book, Flowers in Transition will be available for pre-purchase during the exhibit.
Prints exhibited will be available for purchase.
Show Dates:
The show opens October 29th.
Gallery Hours:

Monday 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
Tuesdays through Thursdays 11:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. 
Open through all performances,  admission is free.
Exhibit Location:
The Thrasher-Horne Center is located on the SJR State Orange Park Campus at 283 College Drive.
