Allison Watson
Allison Watson is well known for her landscape paintings of Florida and the South East. She began her professional career as a studio artist in her early twenties. As a native Floridian, the inspiration for her paintings come from her love of the natural environment and her travels and explorations in the woodlands, lakes, springs, dunes and beaches of Florida. She paints from her own photography taken on location in Florida and internationally. She has had more than 21 solo exhibitions including shows at major universities and museums, and many group shows.

Pablo F. Riveria
Pablo graduated from Cooper Union Art School in New York City where he also attended workshops at The School of Visual Arts and The Educational Alliance. A multi-disciplined artist, Pablo has exhibited his work in photography, sculpture and painting in New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, California and Florida. Locally, he has shown work at R. Roberts Gallery, St. Augustine Art Association, The Museum of Contemporary Art, Jacksonville, The Cummer
Museum, Avondale Artworks, Southlight Gallery, The Vault Gallery and the Ritz Museum, where his portraits, as part of “Through Our Eyes” show, just returned from an extended exhibit in South Africa.
