Countdown #30 to Unity Plaza Opening ~ Art Curation for Downtown ArtWalk ~ SHOW TONIGHT!


This Independence Day Downtown ArtWalk will prove to be fabulous this evening!  Between captivating artist invitational shows at Southlight Gallery, documentary screenings at MOCA during Florida Blue Free Downtown ArtWalk Wednesdays, the buzz on Hemming Plaza ~ the Unity Plaza curated art gallery known as “Juice” at the 1st floor of the Wells Fargo Tower (1 Independent Drive) will feature expressionist painter and two war veteran Jonathan Greene and steel wool, time lapse photographer Dustin Wooten.  Join us as we also host the Collegiate Class of Leadership Jacksonville tonight from 5-7PM!



Please come join me for my next show opening at Jen Jones’ Gallery, “Juice”, at the Wells Fargo Building downtown during July’s ArtWalk this Wednesday! This will be the first of a 2 part series featuring several images I’ve shot of light play using fire with long exposure. I’ll have a limited number of prints for sale of these images as well! I hope you can attend and look forward to seeing you there!



Jonathan Greene (aka ‘Juan Verde’) is a Jacksonville, FL based abstract artist working primarily in the acrylic medium.  Jonathan is a veteran of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, having served multiple tours of duty conducting combat operations.  His artistic vision is greatly influenced by this experience, and the themes of the artwork are frequently colored by the complex juxtapositions and philosophical dichotomies formed by having spent time in war zones.

Jonathan‘s color selections can be categorized as visceral, vivid, and elemental. The use of white space sets off the color palette and helps to capture the unique energy of each composition.  He is a strong proponent of ‘rule of thirds’ compositions, and this positioning scheme can frequently be observed in his work.

Jonathan resides in Orange Park, FL with his lovely wife and two amazing daughters.  In his spare time, he trains at combat sports, including Muay Thai and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, which can sometimes be observed in his subject matter.
