Sally Paulson will exhibit original works from her “Impressions of Provence” series in the St. Johns Cultural Council’s next Art in Public Places exhibit.
The show will be in the Rotunda Gallery at the St. Johns County Administration Building through July 22.
Paulson grew up in Pennsylvania but has spent most of her life at the beaches in Florida. She was given her first camera by her grandmother, an artist and a teacher, who encouraged her to have fun taking photos, and also helped her explore many different forms of visual art.
Since 2003, Paulson has spent considerable time every summer in the south of France, which has inspired her to look at everyday life and to share her impressions through her photography. She is an Artist Member of The Cultural Center at Ponte Vedra Beach.
The “Impressions of Provence” exhibition features 38 photographic works taken in many of the small villages and surrounding areas in the south of France. The photos show everyday life such as the vegetable markets, the cafés, the interesting doors and windows, and especially the lavender and sunflower fields — all seen in summer. The photos have been slightly manipulated digitally, adding layers and texture to create a “painterly” look.
Located at 500 San Sebastian View off of U.S. 1 North, the St. Johns County Administration Building is open to the public from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday–Friday.
The Art in Public Places project is made possible, in part, through support by the St. Johns County Board of Commissioners.
The St. Johns Cultural Council is funded in part by a grant from the Florida Division of Cultural Affairs, the State of the Arts License Plate funds and with the support of The St. Johns County Tourist Development Council and through the support of stakeholders.
