There's a beautiful art center in Ponte Vedra Beach, FL, called the Cultural Center. Located at 50 Executive Way in this quaint beachside town near Jacksonville, it boasts great golf and hosts greater golfers (like Graeme McDowell, K.J. Choi, David Toms, Steve Stiker, Luke Donald and Jason Dufner), some of northern Florida's best sights, and wonderful art.

The Cultural Center was founded in 1994, on the site of an old Post Office, in order to promote the arts in this community and surrounding areas. It has blossomed since then into an 8,000+ square foot gallery space, housing great exhibitions, classes and opportunities for artists and art-lovers alike. All things considered, this art center has been a 'win-win' for Ponte Vedra Beach. Here is a link to their website:

The curatorial committee of the Cultural Center has invited me and four other artists - one two-dimensional artist and three three-dimensional artists - to exhibit our work in a first-of-its-kind show that opens on June 3rd, 2011, at 5:30 p.m. The show is unique for us all: the curatorial committee selected each of us separately and brought us together for this exhibit. The exhibition, UNCOMMON GROUND, will run through July 11th. Gallery hours are Monday through Friday, 9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m., Saturdays, 1:30 - 4:30 p.m.; and Sundays for special events only. Here's a small example of the work you may see in the exhibit:
