Overview
More
A working studio in a unique place, and is not a New York Gallery. Sandra Baker-Hinton, Signature Member of the National Watercolor Society and a 15 year veteran as Volunteer with Sea Turtle Patrol in the local State Park combines her love of art and nature to create all sorts of related art work. You can watch her work on paintings and learn about the different techniques she uses, working in watercolor, acrylic, and oil painting as well as photography, fused glass and making jewelry . The studio becomes a learning and information center as to where you need to go to get the best photo shots, food, where to see Sea Turtles, Alligators, and Birds, what fossils are and where to find them. If you come in wanting to learn about art and nature you are in the right place. Located in a really wonderful art center, Fern and Dina's Gallery and gifts is also a place where you find Sandra and her other artist friends actively involved in teaching all sorts of classes. Check the class schedule.

There is a wide variety of unique and talented artists under one roof. Sandra artist/owner is a talented artist as well. Gallery is nicely arranged and in a good location in downtown Fernandina Beach. I would highly recommend this gallery.

Great place for the real Amelia Island experience. Wonderful art and nice people! Be sure to check out Sandra Baker-Hinton's paintings of sea turtles too! She works hard on protecting the natural environment in the area and knows about the local creatures.
