Marilyn Antram: Ohio-born artist and design major at Ohio State University, She has had the good fortune to be able to spend her early years in the vibrant, creative arena of American Greetings Inc., Cleveland, OH. After her employment with American Greetings Inc. she perused longevity career as a freelance designer and graphic designer. She felt the calling to leave the commercial aspect of art and pursue one in fine arts. Having done extensive illustration during her career, drawing wasn’t a issue, so she consulted with some of Jacksonville’s well known artists and began her future in Fine Arts. Marilyn Antram has found it to be a rewarding decision for her, both professionally and personally. The learning continues by interacting with many artistic and talented professionals in Jacksonville, participating in workshops, attending shows, galleries, and the opportunity to continue as a dedicated painter. She is currently both a member and treasurer for, First Coast Plein Air Painters, Jacksonville Artists Guild, St. Augustine Art Association, and Pines and Palms Artists in Thomasville, GA.

A Brush with Nature

Get ready to paint: March 30TH & 31ST 2019 Yes; we will be back again at Jacksonville Arboretum. You will have a wonderful opportunity to take in some fresh air while painting and selling @ Jacksonville Arboretum. The members only have the chance to paint the live oak trees, paint down by the ravine, or possibly spot an alligator swimming in the pond.

FCPAP will offer the opportunity to members only to jury artwork, have multiple tents set up to sell wet paintings, and offer demonstrations. Music will be apart of this 2 day enjoyable event.

Great Painting Days Ahead!

FCPAP Paints at Big Talbot Island, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday November 16, 17, 18.
Time to get out and paint!! We will paint at Big Talbot Island at The Bluffs area. The entrance to the Bluffs is easily seen on the East side of A1A. There is parking, picnic tables and facilities (port-o-lets). There is a trail that leads down onto the beach which overlooks Nassau Sound and there are many large dead trees on the beach offering plenty of subject matter for artists. The park opens at 8:00 am and there is a $3.00 per car entry fee (honor system). Weather conditions for Friday and Saturday look to be on the cool side, but sunny. Temps on Friday expected to be in the 40s in the morning rising to low 60s during the day with NW winds about 10 mph, so a little breezy. Saturday is predicted to be in the 50s – high 60s with NNE winds at about 7 mph. Bugs should not be an issue, but be prepared. Bring sunscreen and water.
Once again First Coast Plein Air Painters has been invited to participate in Winterfest by having our artists paint throughout the day around the park. Please arrive earlier than 11:00 am to allow time to set up before the crowds arrive. Parking is available in the church parking lot across the street. This is a great time to make connections and have fun!  Be prepared to paint most of the day. Let Stephen Dunn know if you plan to participate so he has a head count to give to the organizers.
FCPAP Paints at Dutton Island Nature Preserve, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, December 14, 15, 16.
We will paint at Dutton Island Nature Preserve located on Dutton Island Road off Mayport Road. The park opens at 8:00 am. Plenty of marsh, trees and intracoastal views with a fishing pier on the North end of the Island.
