STUART — The work of Jane Baldridge is now on display in the Elliott Museum's second floor art gallery.
Sea level rise, the damage of plastics, and the threat of pollution to the environment is the focus of the exhibit - “Portfolios – Jane Lawton Baldridge, A Sea Story Girl.”
She is an award-winning sailor, a licensed boat captain, and an accomplished mixed media artist.
Her paintings reflect the movement, variation, and transformation of the ocean and rivers through color and light.
Jane is a local Martin County artist whose work has been shown at the Lincoln Center, the Louvre, and as far away as Slovenia during the World Festival of Art on Paper. She also has an art print in the Library of Congress.
“Having spent my life on, in or beside the water, I have a profound connection to water and have studied the surface tension, wave patterns, visible currents and size of waves,” said Baldridge, “My paintings try to honor the beauty and the power of our planet’s water while bringing awareness of erosion and pollution.”
“Portfolios – Jane Lawton Baldridge, A Sea Story Girl,” will remain on exhibit through October 31.
