St. Augustine Art Association Wildlife Art Exhibition Reception 2018 – On Saturday, July 21st, the St. Augustine Art Association held the reception for their Nature & Wildlife Art Exhibition. I had one painting, my Golden Eagle in the Kodar Mountains on display and was able to meet with several successful artists who gave me great advice and shared valuable information. Also, I would like to thank association president Diane Bradley, Elyse Brady, Jenn Flynt and the entire St. Augustine Art Association staff for putting this show on every year. For me, there is nothing like this art show in the New York – New Jersey – Philadelphia area and I’ll gladly make the trip to St. Augustine from New Jersey every year that this show is held. I was fortunate enough to have my work selected as the cover art for this year’s brochure. Unfortunately, there will be no Nature & Wildlife exhibit in 2019. Next summer, STAAA will be holding an art show featuring the artwork of former patron Jean Wagner Troemel but the Nature & Wildlife Art Exhibit will return in 2020. Here are are some photos of this year’s show and America’s Oldest City, St. Augustine, Florida:
