Timucuan Parks Foundation’s 20th Anniversary Exhibition “Celebrate & Explore Our Wilderness Parks” will now remain at the Beaches Museum through November 8. The exhibition is in the Dickinson Gallery and now visitors have more time to visit the display which showcases Northeast Florida’s parks and preserves through paintings, photographs and video drone footage from local artists. It also includes information on the nonprofit’s history and partner focuses including the 7 Creeks Recreation Area and the Barrier Islands Parks.

TPF’s “Celebrate & Explore Our Wilderness Parks” Exhibition features 12 paintings from fine artist Kathy Stark, video drone footage captured by Tom Schifanella, and still images taken by photographer Will Dickey. Panels throughout the gallery highlight TPF’s accomplishments as well as their current resiliency, health, engagement and park development initiatives.

Visitors will have the opportunity to purchase TPF’s “Special Places” coffee table book which features Dickey’s photographs and was designed by Schifanella’s company (A portion of the proceeds of the “Special Places” book directly supports the wilderness parks). Visitors can also purchase Stark’s “The Wilderness of North Florida’s Parks” book or prints of her paintings in various sizes.

The Beaches Museum is located at 381 Beach Blvd. in Jacksonville Beach. Admission to the museum is free thanks to the generous donation of Maxwell and Edna Dickinson. Visitors are asked to wear a mask and maintain social distancing. For more information, visit beachesmusuem.org or call (904) 241-5657.
