Peek -a - boo. I see you.

If you are a contemporary artist who has work that you think is kick ass please shoot me an email so I can get a growing list of artists who are interested in showing for future shows that will be coming up. Spaces are appearing now.

There is an obvious movement toward viewers wanting to see contemporary works here.

The landscapes, palm trees, and fish paintings have had their day in the sun.

It's now time for something new. A city is defined by it's art. Art defines culture. If Jacksonville wants be seen as a truly up and coming progressive city of culture that is worth investing in then it needs to invest in itself before another creative generation leaves for truly creative cities such as Atlanta. Times a ticking.

Enough hiding. Come out, come out, wherever you are....

Please just add your name and a link to your web site.

I mean it. We need to get organized.

We should have a list of twenty artists that we all believe in that are ready to show at the drop of a hat. That's my take on it.

I make abstract oil paintings under the name R. Middleton. RMiddleton.com is my main contact site, but I think it's more fun to browse my catablog.
