Hobe Sound Women’s Club Mural

back to MuralsHSM_Murals.html

The theme of this image is in honor of the local chapter of the GFWC,

who has provided volunteer services in Hobe Sound for over 20 years.

This mural depicts a fake cut-away into an ‘art gallery’ which features six architectural columns that list the accomplishments of the local, state and federal groups.

The six original paintings ‘hanging’ reflect an aspect of the six distinct areas of local community service that all the clubs provide:




Home Life

Public Affairs

International Affairs

The Seabranch Art League is a local group with approx. 40 members currently.

Their mission is to ‘open the doors of art to the community’...

They accomplish their goals by creating themed & curated professional shows which culminate in a fundraising event for a different regional organization.

On this mural, their members provided the interpretation and design for each of the ‘paintings’ as well as executing different trompe l’oeil elements of the wall.
