NCCOA Hosts “2020 – A Look Back” Photo Exhibit , Oct. 6 – Nov. 4
The “2020 – A Look Back” exhibit featuring photos showcasing our community’s response to the pandemic will be displayed at Nassau County Council on Aging’s (NCCOA’s) Janice Ancrum Senior Life Center, 1901 Island Walk Way, Fernandina Beach, Wednesday, October 6 – Thursday, November 4, 2021. The exhibit is free and open to the public; sign-in and masks are required.
Janice Ancrum, NCCOA President & CEO, is excited to host the exhibit which features two photos submitted by the agency. “Last year, Nassau County faced and overcame many challenges related to the pandemic. I’m proud that the Council on Aging played a role in feeding seniors, running errands and checking in by telephone during the stay-at-home order,” Ms. Ancrum said. “The entire exhibit is a testament to people helping people as a community, and it’s evident that Nassau County has a great story to tell.”
The “2020 – A Look Back” exhibit was the brainchild of Karen Bowden, supported by Plantation Artist’s Guild and Gallery (PAGG) exhibiting members and the gallery guild’s associate group, Art Lovers. The exhibit captures memories through photographs portraying the wide range of emotions we shared during a challenging year. Visit https://www.paggart.com/art-lovers for a video overview. Exhibit sponsors include The Courtyard-Springhill Suites Marriott Amelia Island, Tourist Development Council, Baptist Medical Center – Nassau, Fernandina Beach News-Leader, Florida Public Utilities, Digital Village and Rayonier Advanced Materials.
The exhibit will be open Oct. 6 – Nov. 4, Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. – 4 p.m., 1901 Island Walk Way in Fernandina Beach. Reservations are not necessary. For more information, contact NCCOA at 904-261-0701.
