The gallery was founded by Jim Lawrence, former Senior Vice President and Chief Supply Chain Officer at Darden Restaurants.
Jim and his wife Kara have spent more than 25 years vacationing on Amelia Island as a family getaway.
Jim and Kara along with close friends Debbie and Philip Lehman, opened the gallery downtown Fernandina Beach in April of 2014.
Art on Centre is located in the heart of the Historic District downtown Fernandina Beach across from the Historic Nassau County Courthouse. The city of Fernandina Beach occupies most of the north end of Amelia Island with Victorian style homes built in the late 1800’s. Downtown has eight city blocks that lead to the Intracoastal Waterway and it is only two miles to the beach. The island is filled with pirate-themed festivals and events with many stories about the Pirates who occupied this island more than a century ago.
Art on Centre’s owner Courtney McCranie is a lifelong resident of Amelia Island. Her family moved into the historic “Bailey House” downtown Fernandina Beach in the early 1970’s. Courtney studied fine art at Bartram School (Bolles) in Jacksonville, Florida and at Flagler College in St. Augustine. Courtney and her business partners, Susan McCranie Siegmund and Jim Lawrence work closely each month to ensure the ongoing quality of artwork available to clients with more than 250 original paintings and sculptures on site in the gallery.
