The Beaches Museum is pleased to announce a Gallery Tour of the exhibit “Vibrancy & Illumination” by artist Jeffrey Luque, Saturday, January 12, 11 a.m. until noon.
The Gallery Tour will be an intimate opportunity to immerse in Luque’s work as the artist himself discusses his technique and inspiration.
Luque’s highly detailed large-scale floral paintings are inspired by his time in the desert where the sparse landscape emphasized the singular beauty of the plants. Upon returning to his hometown of Jacksonville Beach, Florida, Luque began his “Girl with Flowers” series which pushed his technical and creative skills to a new level. Using pointillism to highlight and add depth to the larger than life subjects of his paintings, Luque transforms oil paint and canvas into snapshots of natural beauty. Jeffrey Luque grew up in Neptune Beach and Jacksonville Beach. Although always inspired by nature, his painting career didn’t begin until the age of 23 when he experimented with oil paints on large canvases. He is entirely self-taught.
This event is free to Museum members with a suggested $5 donation for non-members. The exhibit will be on display from October 11 to February 17. For more information please call 904-241-5657.
