The Mary and Dick Martin Collection
February 25 @ 12:00 pm - 5:00 pm
We are excited to offer a special showing this month in place of our regular Guest Artist presentation: The Mary and Dick Martin Collection. New residents of Jacksonville, Mary & Dick are retired National Park Service Park superintendents who spent their careers supervising countless well-known national parks in the western US such as Olympic, Death Valley, and Yosemite National Parks. Throughout their many travels from Alaska to the National Park Service headquarters office in Washington, DC, their passion for collecting art blossomed, and they filled three houses with an amazing collection of diverse art by several artists.
Now settled into a single residence, downsizing has resulted in more artwork than they could possibly display and they are passionate about sharing their collection with people who have a similar appreciation for nature and art. We are excited that they are showing their collection at Art Presence throughout the month of February, including works by Stephen Lyman, an artist from Idaho who worked in Yosemite and Alaska, and Robert Bateman, a Canadian naturalist and artist, just to name a couple.
