Rock Art, Inc., on Display at Casa’s Open House

On Friday, July 6, Casa de Solana Bed and Breakfast will
hold its annual open house and sangria social in conjunction with St. Augustine’s
popular First
Friday Artwalk
. In addition to sweet treats and sangria, we will open to
public viewing the door to our newly-remodeled Minorcan Suite. This suite
features 2 rooms—one with a Queen bed, gorgeous shower, and flat screen TV;
the other, a sitting room with fireplace, desk, and another flat screen TV)!
Open House guests will have the opportunity to judge entries for Casa Photo Contest as
well as meet a handful of local artists.

One of those local artists is Jackie Rock, a relatively new addition
to the St. Augustine art scene (arriving just 2 years ago).  Raised in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, she
obtained her BFA from Kutztown University. Illustration and expressionist pop
surrealism are her strengths as a fine art painter. You can view Jackie’s paintings at Fine Art
.  She has recently expanded her
art talents to include stage scenic work for the exciting new stage at Flagler Playhouse in Bunnel, Fl.

In 2004, Jackie created
Rock Art, Inc., with murals and Faux art commissions becoming her main source
of income as a successful full-time artist. She will be on site at Casa’s open
house to demonstrate her beautiful furniture finishes and other art works.
In the late 1980s and early 1990s, faux finishing became the design choice over
wallpaper and then became an oober popular technique in furniture restoration.
Though high-end homes initially led these trends and prices were high, this
technique has become so popular that truly talented artists like Jackie bring
forth the skill, the emotion, and the impressive product at a price conducive
to everyone’s budget!

So come see her display on Friday, July 6, at 21 Aviles Street, 6-9 pm. Make her an
offer; she just might part with one of her prized pieces or create one just for you!
