Emmett Fritz: A Centennial Collection November 3rd – January 28, 2018
This October marks the 100th anniversary of the birth of one of St. Augustine’s most beloved “plein air” painters, Emmett Fritz.
To commemorate this centennial, Flagler student Bailey Poole has curated an exhibit titled “Emmett Fritz: A Centennial Collection,” which will be presented at the St. Augustine Art Association between Nov. 3 and Dec. 31. (extended through January)
The exhibit will not only offer a glimpse into Fritz’s life, but will also include new acquisitions by the artist from the art association’s Permanent Collection, as well as paintings on loan from local and regional art collectors.
“His anniversary had nearly been overlooked,” she said. “Thereafter, this exhibit slowly began to develop and I took on full management of the project, including everything from the initial background research to contacting local private art collectors who had Emmett Fritz pieces.”
