Emergence - A free night of stimulating conversation about art and film

Emergence is a new monthly event I (Jon Bosworth) am putting together on the third Thursday of every month in The Gallery at Fogle which will feature compelling art, film with a local resonance, music that isn't your traditional ensembles, and even design and sculpture. If you aren't familiar, Fogle is located in the St. Nicholas neighborhood of Jacksonville, just east of San Marco on Beach Boulevard where Beach and Atlantic split, just accross the street from The Red Zone.

On October 16th, from 5 - 7pm, Bosworth is showcasing the work of Tony Rodrigues. The pieces he is showing at Emergence capture classic scenes of Americana that focus on people and water. So there are boatmen, lifeguards, swimmers and surfers captured and rendered in a timeless moment of "quiet dignity," as Tony says. He says: "My intention is to make each painting a little nugget of sweetness, strange familiarity and tragic comedy."
