(Jacksonville, FL) – As part of the Jacksonville International Airport Arts Commission ongoing efforts to showcase local artists, Painted Axe just opened a three-month exhibit at the JAX Airport that extends through March 2018.
Located on the Connector Bridge between ticketing and the TSA security checkpoint, display cases feature newly custom painted guitars geared toward a wide variety of interests. All guitars are for sale with a portion of the proceeds returning to the JIA Arts Commission for future artistic efforts.
“This is a very unique and challenging opportunity,” said Michael Gauf, owner artisan for Painted Axe. “Over 480,000 passengers come and go through JAX Airport monthly. Not all are from Jacksonville or, for that matter, Florida residents. As a result, artistic themes had to be somewhat universal, but still provocative enough to prompt a passerby to stop or slow down and review.”
Painted Axe specializes in custom painted guitars for special events, festivals, musicians and fundraising efforts.
