Conservation Foundation is thrilled to welcome Jean Blackburn and her contemporary exhibit of oil paintings and recycled materials, entitled My Florida. Jean explores the magic of light on water, the intricacies of sabal palm boots, and the detailed beauty of birds.
She is a third-generation Florida native and grew up on Anna Maria Island. Today, she spends part of the year on a farm in Old Myakka with her family. Jean’s artistry combines with her love of the natural environment, resulting in fascinating expressions of all that she explores. She has won numerous awards and honors including the commission of major Public Art Projects through The Knight Foundation for Riverwalk in Bradenton, and at All Children’s Hospital in St. Petersburg. Her work is held in public and private collections across the globe including Whole Foods, Tropicana, and Euro Disney in France. Learn more about the artist.
Join us for the Artist's Reception.
The exhibit may be viewed M - F, 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM thru November, 2019, at Conservation Foundation's headquarters, 400 Palmetto Ave in Osprey. Thanksgiving week hours may vary, please call 941-918-2100.
