“Capturing Florida’s Beauty on Canvas” Exhibit
March 11, 2016 @ 8:00 AM - April 30, 2016 @ 5:00 PM| Free
Artist Sharon Osterholt spent 2015 painting on location at each one of the 140 Florida State Parks. The year long tour culminates with a show and sale, featuring all of the State Park paintings from March 11th to April 30th.
Her paintings often depict water and beach scenes, but some others, such as her painting of the Eden Gardens State Park near Destin, shows an Antebellum-style home with enormous oaks growing in the front.
Osterholt hopes her art can bring attention to the parks.
“I just really want people to appreciate the old Florida,” she said. “A lot of the springs, you can see they’re suffering from the development and the pollution that is filtering into the springs. If they never go, they’re not going to know, and a lot of it is right in your backyard.”
Hours: M-F (10am – 4:30pm), Sat/Sun 12pm-4pm
