Mark Dickson is a well-known Tallahassee Sculptor. His work varies from large public art pieces of fabricated metal to beautiful hand-formed vessels of steel, aluminum, and copper. The vessels are finished by oxidizing and/or painting. Mark draws on knowledge acquired from independent studies in metal design, fabrication, casting, foundry methods, and blacksmithing. Mark has numerous public art instillations, but probably best known to those living in Tallahassee are his remarkable bus shelters.

Charity Myers is a fifth-generation Floridian who grew up in rural North Florida. Charity’s work focuses on themes that span generations and cultures. Time, memory, family, and relationships always play a key role, as do Florida landscapes. Her large paintings are acrylic and often contain photographs and other media. You will recognize here large pieces from Tallahassee’s GreenWise market.
