Silver Springs drew people like some sort of primal magnet when river boats plied the St. Johns intrepid travels came to be lost in the wilds at this flowing pond which exuded mystery and wonderment. Here, then and now, the unexplainable beauty created by the crystal clear water bordered on the mystical. During the next century, Bruce Mozert documented the sensibility of this modern era. He is an original artist who responded to his time and place with an unmatched imagination and unconditional passion.
