Florida Art Gallery Acquires New ‘Be Well’ Exhibit


Open day is Saturday 6-9pm at Riverside.

JACKSONVILLE, Florida – Saturday, Yellow House Art Gallery welcomes the public to discover last exhibition “Be well”.

“There’s just a lot of different stories that intertwine with this unique idea of ​​’what does it mean to be fine? On individual bases and for us collectively,” said Hope McMath, founder of Yellow House.

The art will be presented by seven different artists, with seven different backgrounds and experiences.

“Each artist brings their own story and experience to this exhibit, some of which are very personal,” McMath said.

McMath says they use things like disabilities, disease diagnoses, or even race-based trama to share what “being good” means to them.

“We have artist Sandra Murphy-Pak who has been an artist all her life but was diagnosed with ALS years ago,” McMath said. “She uses her feet as a tool to make her paintings showing that even people with this disease created disability art is still so important to her that she has transcended this disability through her artistic creation.”

If you cannot come on Saturday from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m., you have until November to discover the exhibition.

La Maison Jaune is open every Wednesday from 12 p.m. to 7 p.m. and every Saturday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
