Award-winning watercolorist Teresa Cook will showcase her exhibit “Figuratively Seen” in this one-night-only pop-up exhibit and reception. Following the pop-up exhibit her work will be on display at First Coast Cultural Center in Jacksonville Beach from February 10-28.
The February 3rd reception will also feature a talk by curator and historian Dr. Cori Convertito entitled “Shaping an Island: Key West’s Black History.” She will explore how Black settlers shaped the island of Key West into what it is today and what that has meant for the state of Florida. Convertito is Lead Historian at the Florida Keys History Center and her presentation is made possible through a partnership with Florida Talks.
