A Vision for Art is the premier art exhibition in the southeast for both avid art collectors and casual buyers. Founded in 2018 by St. Mark’s Episcopal Day School, it exhibits new and original works by well-known and emerging artists.


Our Mission

St. Mark’s Episcopal Day School is proud to host this indoor event in our 3,660 square foot Lori Schiavone Commons entitled A Vision for Art. It will be a unique event to Jacksonville, where established and emerging artists from our community and around the country will come together for this experience unlike any other. During these five days, we hope to bring in thousands of guests from across the region. In addition to the gallery sale, the following silent auction items will be featured: St. Mark's students’ class projects, gallery items from St. Mark’s alumni, and “All About St. Mark’s” experiences.

OUR GOALs

  • Benefiting the St. Mark’s Episcopal Day School community through enhancing the fine arts programs through arts and music appreciation.

  • Establishing St. Mark’s Episcopal Day School as a premier supporter of local and national contemporary artists.

  • Connecting the St. Mark’s Episcopal Day School students with artists in the community through the creation of individual class projects.

  • Creating an atmosphere where new and established artists can be introduced to a large diverse group of people from around the first coast and beyond.

  • Creating opportunities for St. Mark’s Episcopal Day School Alumni to a rare opportunity to display and sell their work alongside established and well known artists from around the country.

  • Encouraging appreciation and understanding of the fine arts community.

OUR CURATION

The A Vision for Art committee has partnered with Space 42 contemporary art gallery to curate the collection of artists represented. Together, our focus is to search for emerging and established artists, locally and beyond to be a part of A Vision for Art inaugural event. The goal is to curate contemporary art with a vision unique to our community.
