First Street Gallery welcomes Jacksonville artist Gail Beveridge, an honors graduate of the University of Florida College of Architecture and Fine Arts. Beveridge made the transition to professional artist after many years as a commercial interior designer. An award-winning sculptor, she has exhibited in juried and invitational shows throughout the United States, and has been represented in Jacksonville and New Smyrna Beach. Recently, she has pursued her longtime interest in painting – her works being featured in juried exhibitions and winning awards.
Beveridge has been co-chair (2011, 2012) and chairman (2013, 2015) of the event committee for A Brush with Nature – a plein air event held at the Jacksonville Arboretum & Gardens – and a docent at MOCA Jacksonville. In 2006, the Cultural Council of Greater Jacksonville selected Beveridge to create five art awards for its annual Art Awards Luncheon honoring community leaders for their contributions to the arts.
