Summer Interlude: Four Cathedral Artists
St. John's Cathedral presents a summer exhibition entitled, SUMMER INTERLUDE: FOUR CATHEDRAL ARTISTS. You're invited to view painting and photography by artists Jean Dodd, Dan Hadwin, Lou Towson and Jesses Wright. The exhibition is open Tuesday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., the same hours as the Pilgrimage. Visitors should check in with Judy at the Reception Desk in Cathedral House and must wear a mask.
Jean Dodd’s three floral paintings are lush and colorful presentations of nature’s abundance. Her fourth painting in the exhibition is an under-the-sea fantasy with a wonderful title - FISH, FISH, SWIM.
Dan Hadwin’s eight photographs are from his trip to Laos and Cambodia. They reflect the people, their lives, and the landscape through which they move. Particularly poignant are the images of children in their daily lives. Dan captures the look of the places, the architecture, and the sacred images in present day but ancient settings.
In Lou Towson’s oil seascapes, waves roll up on the beach. A Cumberland Island turkey struts across another Towson painting. Cypress trees hold forth in a swamp painting and a woman strolls through an impressionistic Savannah garden in another paining.
Jesse Wright’s giclee entitled GOLDENROD captures a glorious clump of goldenrod on a blue-grey summer’s day. A beautiful natural wood frame from the late Dawson Gallery owner’s masterful hand surrounds the work. A second giclee presents a line of white flowers shimmering in a spring-fed trout pond. A final giclee is a Baroque-like sunrise south of Ponte Vedra.
The exhibition will run through the rest of the summer.
