Elliott Museum Presents “A Sea Story Girl” and Miniature Art Exhibits

Jane Lawton Baldridge a

Stuart— The Elliott Museum recently hosted a reception for its newest art exhibit, “Portfolios – Jane Lawton Baldridge, A Sea Story Girl.” The exhibit, located at Elliott Museum's second floor art gallery, will remain on display through October 31, 2021 at the Elliott Museum, 825 NE Ocean Blvd.

The exhibit highlights the art of Jane Baldridge, an award-winning sailor, licensed boat captain, and accomplished mixed media artist. Her paintings reflect the movement, variation, and transformation of the ocean and rivers through color and light. Concerned with the ecological challenges facing waterways and coastal areas today, her current work focuses on sea level rise, the damage of plastics, and the threat of pollution to the environment.

Baldridge’s artwork has been shown in venues that include Lincoln Center, Times Square, the Louvre, Museum of Computer Art, Mint Museum, Cameron Museum of Art and Fayetteville Museum of Art and at the World Festival of Art on Paper in Slovenia. She also has an art print in the Library of Congress. For more information, visit her website, www.artspeaks.com.

The Elliott also is showcasing the “Exquisite Miniatures” exhibit on its first floor. Fifty exquisite miniature paintings by artists Wes and Rachelle Siegrist feature subjects ranging from still lifes to landscapes to artist self-portraits. This traveling exhibition has appeared in 42 venues nationwide and celebrates the couple’s unprecedented mastery of art on a diminutive scale. The show will remain at the Elliott through December 12, 2021.

The artists first became interested in miniature art in 1997 when they received a prospectus for a miniature art show. Guests will need a magnifying glass (supplied by the museum) to appreciate the minuscule detail captured in each of the paintings, which can be as small as one and one-quarter inches in diameter. The paintings typically measure less than nine square inches, and art enthusiasts can’t resist being drawn in for a closer look.

For more information, call the museum at 772-225-1961 or visit the website, www.hsmc-fl.com.
