Marleah Blades, the founder and administrator of The Arts Collective Jacksonville, has put much thought and effort into forming a group of people that love art — and not just that, a group of people who have a passion for creating art. Based in Jacksonville, AL, the Collective has been exceptionally busy since its inception and boasts a membership of 108 officially on social media. It's description on Facebook reads:
And coming very soon, September 19th to be exact, the Create Festival sponsored by The Arts Collective Jacksonville is showcasing their members work all in shops around the Jacksonville Square. I am excited for this opportunity to show 3 works from Flux Inertia, and all three pieces from Composure. I also just last week got a call to be interviewed from the Jacksonville News about the Create Festival. So I will be posting that when I get my hands on it.
At any rate, I am so glad that this "revival" for the appreciation and exposure of art is happening, even though it is sparking the semester after I finished school. I guess this is why I am happy because it allows me to still stay involved with art on campus.
