Celebrate the Visual Arts in Jacksonville…

Southlight Gallery is a group of visual artists excited about promoting their art to the Jacksonville community. Our primary goal is to present a diverse selection of work from both established and emerging local artists at major downtown events . We enjoy interacting with the public and establishing connections with art lovers everywhere.

Each artist manages their own sale of artwork, the gallery does not participate in commissions. The gallery is made possible by volunteers and sharing of expenses. Please support our artists who work hard to bring you their best efforts.

Thank you.

One Spark Hogan Street Mural Project – “Face to Face”

The SOUTHLIGHT Collaborative’s ONE SPARK campaign is intended to bring the Jacksonville community “FACE to FACE’ with our 24 local artist members and One Spark Creators on North Hogan Street. On April 9th we will unveil two 8’ x 14’ canvas murals by two of our most renowned local artists.

Hogan Street Mural Final

We need your support to move forward with our pilot project to wrap an 8’ x 14’ weatherproofed and painted canvas around the support to the south of our entryway, on the corner of N. Hogan and Adams.

About Southlight Gallery

The Southlight Gallery is a local Fine Art Collaborative founded by Michael Dunlap, Jay Shoots, Mark Howard, and Jim Draper. We are currently exhibiting 29 members and 2 guests. We are the largest and most prominent member of Downtown Jacksonville’s Off The Grid galleries: A program designed by the Cultural Council of Greater Jacksonville and Downtown Vision in an effort to enliven the district by offering affordable vacancies to area artists. Southlight’s primary goal is to present a diverse selection of work from both established and emerging local fine artists through our on-going exhibitions. Since October of 2009, the collaborative has built a solid fan base. Our monthly ArtWalk openings and special events have become a major hit on the area art scene. Currently, we are exhibiting in a fine art gallery located at 201 North Hogan Street in the historic Levy Building in the heart of downtown Jacksonville. We like to share our good fortune by offering our space as venue for corporate and non-profit gatherings. All appearances aside, the Southlight Gallery is made possible by the sharing of expenses among members and serves as a means for each artist to represent themselves. Funds from all sales are paid in full to member artists. Southlight does not participate in commissions. The Southlight Gallery, staffed by volunteer interns and Pam Zambetti, Director of Marketing and Artist in Residence, is open to the public weekly, Tuesdays through Fridays, from 11:00 am until 3:00 pm, or by appointment.
