JOE SEGAL | REVISION
Joe Segal is a nationally collected, St. Augustine, Florida-based artist who has been creating his one-of-a-kind artworks on the First Coast for more than two decades. His sophisticated, sculptural works are primarily wall-hung pieces carved from beams with incorporated metal elements. Segal’s minimalist style also lends itself to printmaking where his subtle finishes are drawn from the inherent characteristics of his materials.
Born in New York in 1963, he graduated magna cum laude with a B.A. in visual arts from Flagler College. Segal continued his art education by studying bronze casting at the Sculpture Center in New York City as well as printmaking instruction at Flatbed Press in Austin, Texas and Flying Horse Editions in Orlando, Florida.
Segal has been the recipient of numerous honors and awards for his work including a fellowship from the State of Florida and several grants from The Community Foundation for Northeast Florida. He has exhibited his work throughout Florida and coast to coast across America. His work is represented in museums and numerous private, corporate and healthcare art collections.

JENNY K. HAGER | SCULPTOR, PROFESSOR, PUBLIC ARTS DEVELOPER
Jenny K. Hager, Professor of Sculpture at the University of North Florida, received her MFA in Sculpture and Digital Media from San Jose State University in San Jose, CA. Interested in a variety of processes and materials, including steel, cast iron, post-it notes, video, wood, digital photography and found objects, she finds inspiration in dreams, objects from her childhood, gadgets, sea life and other curiosities. She is also very interested in collaboration; the spirit of community important in both her teaching practice and in her own work.
Hager’s work has been exhibited across the country and recently in the Cymru Ironstone Castle Exhibition in Wales, the Pedvale Open-Air Art Museum in Latvia and Il Giardino di Daniel Spoerri in Seggiano, Italy. Flight Lab, a video installation by Hager, has traveled to the Ogden Museum of Southern Art in New Orleans and York, Pennsylvania. Hager’s most recent series “Second Line” celebrates diversity of culture, individual storytelling and the spirit of the Second Line tradition of New Orleans parade culture. In this series, Hager creates large-scale parade animals inspired by the Chinese zodiac and infused with a personal narrative. Most recently, Hager created a 20’ tall steel mosaic giraffe sculpture for the Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens and two sculptural benches for downtown Jacksonville, FL.
Hager’s teaching practice fosters a creative and collaborative environment where learning can thrive. Expanding the horizons of our students is a significant part of her teaching practice. She believes that learning that takes place outside the classroom, in our own community, has the potential to be more impactful, for both the student and the community at large, because Community Based Learning offers a chance to engage with local culture, a chance to build relationships with community partners, and most importantly, a chance to provide real-life experiences for the students. Community-based learning is a core component of her teaching practice. She and her students have created work in conjunction with many community partners, including Fleet Landing, Klutho Park, Gerdau Ameristeel, the Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens, the Looking Lab at City Hall, MOCA, CoRK, Ponte Vedra Cultural Center, MOCA, Hemming Park, and One Spark.
Hager is an active member of the Jacksonville art community. She has served on the MOCA Collections and Exhibitions Committee, as well as the MOCA Education committee. Interested in promoting local artists and creating creative networks in Jacksonville, she has served on the steering committee for the Northeast Florida Sculptors group since its inception in 2009.
For more information, please visit the Jacksonville International Airport’s main entrance. Hours daily are 5am - 12am. Located pre-security and open to the public, this show runs October 1 - December 31, 2019.

JEFF CRASS | AVIATION PHOTOGRAPHY
As the son of a Nikon award winning photographer, Jeff Crass was bound to pick up a camera at some point in his life. While attending Ohio University in Athens, Ohio, he tinkered with a camera body his father had given him, but never took it seriously. In 2012, after finding that he had an “eye,” Jeff invested in his first DSLR and has never looked back. The subjects of his photographs matter as much as the edits that he applies to each image, giving each its own life through the technology at hand. Jeff’s work focuses on the artistic view of the world around him and tries to convey that view in his images. Jeff spends as much time as possible travelling the world on his freelance adventures and capturing this amazing planet we call home. Jeff lives in Jacksonville, Florida with his wife, Melanie, and step-daughter, Kayla. Growing up near Wright Patterson Air Force Base in Dayton, Ohio gave Jeff an appreciation for airplanes and the wonders of aviation. It’s only fitting that, when given the opportunity to capture them as only he can, he focuses on the details. The sleek lines of the cockpit or the intricacies of the propeller and engine parts make for amazing art pieces. These works were taken in various places including the (now-defunct) Airplane Graveyard in St. Augustine and The Smithsonian in Washington, D.C.
ANNA MILLER | REFRACTIONS
“The collection of canvases called “Refractions“, by the artist Anne Miller, is comprised of six sub-series of paintings that are all abstract impressions of different phenomena found in nature. While the artist finds her inspiration in the tangible, such as plants and flowers, her main focus is on capturing the patterns and rhythm created by light, color, form and even sound.
This collection of painting is a fully cohesive and mature body of work. Even though each sub-series reflects a distinct approach to the overall subject matter, the collection as a whole is bound by an aesthetic that feels both contemporary and timeless. The artist succeeds in combining elements of abstract expressionism with cubism and even op art in a creative way that feels original and fully her own.
Anna Miller’s work inspires the viewer to look at nature in a different light and to look deeper in order to understand that nature is a multi-faceted mystery and much more than what meets the eye.” - Nils Krueger
WHITE OAK PLANTATION | LEARN MORE
On display in the Sky Gallery through June 2020. For more information, please visit the organization's website: whiteoakwildlife.org.
“Voyage” is from my series called, “Passages.” The series is inspired by life’s journey, travels and dreams of passage into other worlds. “Voyage” also reflects the plight of the immigrant. It represents the gravity of making the decision to leave one’s home in the hope of a better life.
"Interlock” was designed for the City of Jacksonville "Love Locks" project, where passersby could lock combination locks onto the sculpture to symbolize their love.” The project never materialized at full scale, but the concept was a stand alone large-scale outdoor sculpture designed to replace the locks that were removed from the Main Street Bridge.
“Wings of the Phoenix” represents the story of rebirth. The great bird rises from the ashes. The wings are waterjet cut and gracefully adorn the top of an upward-sweeping abstract form. I have produced it at this scale, in aluminum, for the Cities of Atlantic Beach + Neptune Beach's Town Center, for Knoxville, TN, and for performances in Italy.
“Rethreaded: Flight” is a maquette for a large-scale installation artwork that featured a large steel birdcage, with bars meant to resemble stained glass and hundreds of colorful birds made from recycled t-shirts. The birdcage is completely empty, and the door is left open. It appears that the all of the birds have been set free. This piece represents freedom and also references Maya Angelou’s “I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings.” I designed and created the maquette and my students and I collaborated to build the large-scale birdcage. UNF students and faculty, as well as members of the community from Jacksonville and beyond created the birds, some having “flown” from various locations across the US. The installation was designed to bring awareness to Human Trafficking and the local organization, Rethreaded, whose mission it is to help survivors of human trafficking.
TIFFANY MANNING | FINE ART ABSTRACTS + PORTRAIT PHOTOGRAPHY
Tiffany Manning’s drive to create is fueled by a lifelong fascination with energy. More specifically, it is the way it moves through people to form the connective tissue that weaves our world together. It is the aspects rooted somewhere between science and spirit that excite her the most. Coupled with a process heavily influenced by music and dance, she creates an environment that allows her to surrender to the experience, and simply be present with the canvas. There is a palpable energetic presence coursing through her work that is deeply grounded in joy and happiness because that is the energy she wants to leave behind, long after the work is done.
“When I stop trying to control everything and instead enter a state of complete surrender, there is magic waiting to be discovered. I lovingly refer to my practice as the art of allowing. I am creating to be present in my body. I am creating to have a better understanding of the parts inside that can only be discovered through a sense of mental displacement. My time in the studio is a moving meditation, but that state of bliss can only be achieved when I am acting as a conduit, rather than a conductor.”
