The First Friday Art Walks are a beloved event St. Augustine event. And now Sea Spirits Gallery and Lost Art Gallery are joining the ranks on November 3 for their first Art Walk events. Lost Art Gallery will serve refreshments and display the art of Trish Beckham. Sea Spirits Gallery will display the art of Taylor Hale.
At Sea Spirits Gallery, you can experience the stunning works of Taylor Hale. His appreciation for nature truly radiates in his paintings. Taylor is a Key Largo native who draws inspiration from a lifetime on the water in his island hometown. Taylor, who works primarily with oils, completed a bachelor’s of Fine Arts from the Rhode Island School of Design in 2009. During his time spent studying abroad in Italy, he developed a love of the materials and methods of renaissance masters—which inspires his naturalistic scenes and traditional technique. Like his great, great grandfather, New England Golden Age artist Joseph Lindon Smith, much of Taylor’s early work was portraiture. This passion led him to complete many commissions throughout the country before returning to Florida where the dreamlike glow of the sky and sea serves as his muse. Taylor is driven by the sky’s constant transformations and seeks to create windows to connect to another world within each work. In each skyscape, he captures movement and stillness, familiarity and the unknown, peace and unrest. He invites his viewers to bring their unique perspectives to each piece and explore where the sky takes them.
The event at Sea Spirits Gallery takes place from 5-9pm.
At the Lost Art Gallery, you can experience the eye-catching works of Trish Beckham. Her skill combined with her passion creates stunning paintings. Trish takes her craft to new levels in her palette knife paintings, using oil paints to push the boundaries of reality. Her spontaneous gesture renders scenes that celebrate the beauty of nature. Trish has had multiple personal shows and has been exhibited with Oil Painters of America, Salon International, the Florida Museum of Natural History, and the National Watercolor Society. She is also a member of Oil Painters of America. Her work is truly a wonder to experience in person.
