Salon Gallery

There’s a new gallery on the block! Lets give a big welcome to Salon. A brand spanking new gallery that’s set to have its “soft” opening during the July art walk. Always good to see a new gallery open up here in the ville. I have also been invited to show some work with them so, it will also be nice to be back in a gallery that’s a participant in Art Walk each month. Salon is having an open call to artists as well. Here is the details that I got from Salon- For any additional details visit their web site at . Salon Gallery is located at 109 East Bay St in downtown Jacksonville.

At this meeting you will review and sign our consignment agreement (30% commission/no hanging fees). We can also create the bio that will accompany your work(s) at Salon. The space is still undergoing renovations but we would love to have you stop in to see the raw space and possibly give us some cool design ideas (wink, wink).

5 Points Mural by Shaun Thrurston

Shaun Thurston, local graffiti artist extraordinaire, has completed a rockin’ revamp of the 5 Points mural at Lomax. The original mural, completed in the 1980s, had grown tired and sported multiple tags; local businesses and residents wanted to keep the the wall a place for public art, but also yearned for a fresh new face on this iconic corner.
Members of the new RAP180 group spearheaded the project, and RAP pulled together the funds to buy the supplies. Over the course of a couple of weeks, Shaun sketched out his vision, and then got to work. You have just GOT to see what this man can do with nine days and some tubes of spray paint–the artistry is incredible. Check it out, and let us know what you think.
