Lincolnville talk: an artist’s perspective

Award-wining artist Rosamond Parrish will give a brown-bag lunch presentation about Lincolnville on Wednesday, May 14, from noon to 1:00 p.m. and the St. Augustine Art Association, has invited Historic City News readers to attend.

The talk features vivid images and anecdotes from her illustrated book published in 2012, “Lincolnville: A Sketchbook Journal of St Augustine’s Historic Neighborhood”.

“The people and iconic places of this neighborhood hold a very special place in my heart,” said Parrish who resides in Lincolnville; the backdrop for the Civil Rights movement, 50 years ago. “I hope my perspective on this historic area will offer insight with a touch of humor.”

Parrish’s book has been widely acclaimed in the local community. The original book illustrations were first displayed at the St. Augustine Art Association, where Parrish has been a long-time active member. She is also the founder of the Jacksonville Watercolor Society. In 2011 she won the prestigious Carl Steinsieck Award for Figure Drawing.

To make reservations for the talk, call (904) 824-2310. Attendees should bring a bag lunch with them to the Art Association located at 22 Marine Street. Beverages will be available. A $5 donation at the door is requested to benefit the new TOUCH St. Augustine Art Garden. Learn more at
