The Lightner Museum presents artist Rebecca Lemmon's series of paintings entitled, "Leaves & Light," from Friday, April 7, 2023 through May 21, 2023. The exhibit opens on St. Augustine's First Friday Art Walk.
In these works, the artist has painted scenes of nature, focusing on the way light can transform how we see the ordinary. She sought moments in time when a ray of light brought out texture of a tree, or the vibrant color of a flower or fruit, making our ordinary daily views simply beautiful.
Rebecca Lemmon is a graduate of Flagler College with a BFA in Fine Arts. In addition to painting in her home studio, she has taught drawing and painting at the high school level, and traveled to both Italy and Ireland to study abroad.
This exhibit is a part of the "Lightner Local" series of events, created by the Lightner Museum to showcase the talents of artists who live in Northeast and Central Florida.
Admission: $17 adults; $14 college students, military, and seniors; $10 youth ages 12-17; free for children 11 and under
