The University of North Florida Gallery at the Museum of Contemporary Art Jacksonville and the university’s Department of Art and Design are presenting “Observing Objects: Works by Leigh Murphy.”

The exhibit is curated by Debra Murphy, UNF Department of Art and Design chair, and Amara McMann, UNF Art Galleries coordinator.

The exhibition will be on view in the UNF Gallery at MOCA through May 11.

A free reception is scheduled for 6-8 p.m. Thursday at the Downtown museum, 333 N. Laura St.

A graduate of the Episcopal School of Jacksonville and the University of North Florida with a degree in graphic design, Murphy has the rare distinction of being a member of both the American Watercolor Society and the Oil Painters of America.

Her works have been shown throughout the country and were selected by the State Department for exhibition in U.S. embassies in Minsk, Belarus; San Jose, Costa Rica; and Tegucigalpa, Honduras.

She is also represented in numerous corporate collections, including Disney and several of Northeast Florida’s hospitals, such as St. Vincent’s and Baptist Health.
