Jensen Beach Artists- 2018 MCOST





Four Jensen Beach artists, Barbara Lapham, Sally Eckman Roberts, Karen Leffel-Massengill, and Jillane Heveron are featured in the 2018 Martin County Open Studio Tour the weekend of January 20 & 21, 2018. This is the second annual studio tour which has grown to 44 artists this year and will be held from 10 am to 5 pm both days.

Watercolor artist Barbara Lapham primarily paints birds and the natural beauty of Florida. Originally from Miami she has spent a number of years in California and Mexico. Returning to Florida she has a studio in a charming downtown Jensen Beach cottage where she will be happy to tell you about her work and show you some of her beautiful paintings.

Sally Eckman Roberts is a prolific artist/designer who works in the creation and development of new products for the gift and home décor industries. Combining her design skills and experience as an illustrator, her watercolor and colored pencil images depict nature in a traditional manner with a contemporary feel.

Well known painter Karen Leffel-Massengill has been the poster artist for numerous Florida art events and has received many national honors for her paintings. She will display numerous paintings of a variety of subjects and will welcome the public to her peaceful, charming studio in Jensen Beach where she paints, teaches and sells her work.

Jillane Heveron creates beautiful representational paintings of nature, figures and other subjects. She enjoys the process of painting and is happy to talk about it with the public.

The theme of this second annual tour is “New Realms of Working Spaces.” The event will introduce Martin County artists to regional patrons of the arts and provide an intimate look inside the working studios of local artists. The event is free and open to all. More information
